Pendulums and muscle testing have been used since ancient times for dowsing, healing, and seeking answers from our subconscious or higher self. A pendulum is basically an object on a chain or cord that is held between your fingers and allowed to sway. Energy is channeled through your hand causing the object to swing in a particular direction to show an answer. Like most tools, the pendulum only has the power that the user gives it. By using it regularly and putting your energy into it, you create a link with the pendulum, and it becomes a tool for your subconscious to convey messages to you.
What are pendulums made of?
They can be made of a range of materials, such as crystals, wood, glass, or metals, and come in a variety of sizes and shapes. We recommend beginners use a wood pendulum as the wood absorbs the user’s energy easily and it is good for confidence, wisdom, and clarity. Whatever the shape or size, it is important to go with your instincts when choosing a pendulum.
Pendulum and Spiritual healing
Pendulums have also been used as a tool by energy practitioners for:
1. Chakra balancing
2. Aura cleansing
3. Clearing the blockage of energy (chi) in the body
How to select a pendulum?
It’s important to realize that a pendulum chooses you. Choose the pendulum that instinctively feels right to you.
Hold it in your hands, close your eyes, and pay attention to how it makes you feel. It could be the one for you if you notice tiny vibrations and a change in the temperature of the pendulum. Follow your instinct.
Cleansing of Pendulum
If you choose to work with a crystal pendulum, we recommend you cleanse the pendulum to clear the energies of anyone who may have handled it before and to make sure you’re not picking up on the energy of those you live with or those you’ve previously worked with. While focusing your purpose to cleanse your pendulum of foreign or unwanted energies, we recommend adopting one of the following energy cleansing methods:
- Place your pendulum in a basin of salt and shake it a few times. Make sure the pendulum is completely covered in salt.
- Submerge your pendulum in cold water for 30 seconds or more. (make sure your crystal won’t be damaged by water)
- Place your pendulum in the moonlight for at least two hours.
- Allow your pendulum to sit in the sun for a few hours or longer
