Black Obsidian Pendulum
Using a pendulum is a simple way to access Divine guidance. They can be used in healing rituals and to cleanse objects or spaces of negative energy.
A pendulum works by tapping into your intuition and sixth sense. The pendulum acts as a form of receiver and transmitter, from your higher guidance, guardian angels and spiritual teachers. As the pendulum moves, you gain answers in response to questions – it is best suited to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions.
Before you use your pendulum
Once you receive your pendulum, cleanse it. You can do this by holding it under running water, using cleansing crystals like Selenite, or charging it under the sun or moon light. Once you have cleansed it, keep it on/around you for the next 24 hours so it syncs with your energy.
How to use your pendulum
When you're ready to start, sit with your pendulum held between the thumb and forefinger of one hand and run your other hand down the length of the pendulum chain or cord, bringing your hand to rest with the bottom tip of the pendulum in your upturned palm.
In a relaxed state, and with an open mind, ask your pendulum to identify 'yes' (the pendulum will move in a direction; it is different for everyone!). Once you have determined the direction of a 'yes', then determine the direction for 'No'. The pendulum could swing back and forth, side to side, clockwise or anti-clockwise - what ever it is for you is absolutely perfect.
Now you have made the connection with your pendulum, its time to start asking some questions. Its best to start with simple questions that you know the answer to at first, its important to build a relationship with your pendulum because it will easily become one of your favourite tools!
