Pendulums are often used as tools for spiritual healing and divination. As you can see in the photo above, they are usually a Crystal attached at the end of a string or metal chain, when suspended from a stationary position, a pendulum will swing back and forth or in a circular motion, as your higher-self links with the Universal Divine Connection to bring you guidance or boost your energy for well being or both.
To use in as an oracle, to give “Yes” or “No” answers to your questions, then the best way is to place your elbow of the hand holding the Pendulum, firmly on a hard surface, for example, a table or sturdy arm of a chair, and hold your hand upright, dangling the pendulum. With your other hand, straighten the pendulum until it is perfectly still, and as you breathe deeply and connect with your higher self and The Universe, ask for the pendulum to give you the indication for “Yes” – the pendulum should start to move slowly and gain momentum in a certain direction.
It will possibly swing backwards and forwards, side to side, or around in a circular movement. Once it is consistent in the movement, you then know this is the sequence for Yes or No – whichever you have voiced before testing the movement.
Continue in the same format, to find the opposite answer to the Yes or No by holding the pendulum back in its original position of stillness before continuing with the opposite Yes or No. Once both answers are confirmed for you, quieten the pendulum again.
At this point, you ask your Spirit Guides and helpers to drawn close to help you with indicating with the pendulum, the guidance that you or another requires in order to obtain answers to your questions.
Always ask for protection and clear answers to your questions. Patience and inner harmony are required to do this right. You need to be open to the spiritual influence and opening up your free will and asking for their guidance in the matter at hand.
You should always remember that this is for guidance only, and life changing decisions should be made from the guidance within you from your higher self.
