A Pendulum Can Give You The Answers You've Been Seeking
Perhaps one of the most common psychic tools used during a psychic reading is the pendulum. A pendulum consists of a small weight tied to a string or chain that is about ten inches in length. What type of weight people choose can vary from person to person and it is often based on personal preference. Some popular types of weights include rings, coins, keys, stones and crystals.
Many psychics tend to use objects that have personal meanings to them; however, this does not necessarily determine a pendulum’s efficacy. A pendulum's true power comes from the psychic’s own self. The pendulum serves as an extension to the psychic’s inherent knowledge. It is used as a tool to help clarify or confirm the validity of the information a psychic receives during his or her reading. Pendulums typically only answer yes or no types of questions, so open ended questions tend to be avoided when consulting a pendulum.
The beauty to pendulums is that you do not need to be a psychic reader to use one. It’s believed that the pendulum acts as an extension of the subconscious self. It is within the subconscious that psychic intuition is most prevalent. For most of us, the subconscious can be difficult to access on a regular basis. Thus, the pendulum serves as a great method to find the answers to our questions that we already have subconscious knowledge of but can’t consciously access.
Using a pendulum is a very simple process. Once you have determined what type of pendulum you would like to work with you can immediately starting asking the pendulum yes or no questions. However, it is always wise to make sure you are in a quiet and safe environment. You need to make sure that you feel emotionally neutral and balanced. Being emotionally over-stimulated can affect the efficacy of the pendulum.
Once you feel ready, take the pendulum string or chain and hold it between your thumb and forefinger. Let the weight of the pendulum move freely between your fingers. Ask the pendulum a yes or no question that you already know the answer to. See which the direction the pendulum swings. This direction will determine what an affirmative answer is or what a negative answer is.
Make sure you practice with a few questions you already know the answers to so that you can be sure that your pendulum is working accordingly. Once you have established that your pendulum is working effectively, you can then begin to ask it questions that you do not consciously know the answers to. You may want to keep a journal regarding your work with your pendulum. You will be amazed at how accurate a pendulum can prove to be.
