How do I use a pendulum properly? Can anyone else use it?
Question: Just wondering how to use my new pendulum properly - can it cause any harm and is it only me that can use it or can my husband use it as well - thanks.
Answer: First off, no, a pendulum can not harm you. It is an extension of your subconscious and your higher self. Yes, your husband can use it if you choose. That is a personal decision. However, with crystals keep in mind that they pick up other people's energies. So for your pendulum to work best for you, it is best if only you use it. That way it knows you and your energy.
Using a pendulum is actually pretty simple. Relax and center yourself. Hold the pendulum in your dominate hand (the one you write with). To get an idea of how it will answer your questions, you will simply ask it. Remember to relax. This was my biggest problem when I first started working with them.
Ask it something like... "Please show me yes." It will likely start swinging up and down. Then ask it, "Please show me no." Typically it will swing back and forth. However, if your pendulum swings differently, that is ok. For my son it swings in a counter-clockwise motion for no. Repeat this process for "maybe" and "unknown".
I personally tell the pendulum "thank you" in between each question. This isn't necessary, but it seems to put my pendulum back into a state where it is waiting for the next question.
If you are not sure, give it some test question (if you haven't already) and see how it works for you. Keep in mind, though, that if you have a very strong will that it can go in the direction you want. Make sure to keep your mind as clear as possible. If you want to be something to be true and are thinking in your head "yes" then it will swing yes. The stronger the swing, the more definite the answer.
