A pendulum is a small weight suspended on a piece of thread, string, or chain, often used as a simple way to connect with the other side. Pendulum readings have come to be one of the most popular forms of psychic reading around today. A pendulum is a powerful and reliable tool, which is easy to learn whether you’re a professional or just starting out. The more you use a pendulum the more adept you will become. You can use just about anything to make a pendulum, as long as it has some weight to it and hangs well. A long shape with a pointed bottom is best, although a round/oval/odd shaped pendulum can be equally as effective. Common types of pendulums include:
- A ring
- Metal pointer
History The word ‘pendulum’ is derived from the Latin for ‘pendulus’ meaning ‘hanging.’ It is believed the pendulum became popular as a method of divination around 5,000 years ago in the Ancient Orient, becoming increasingly popular in the Middles Ages. The method lost favour for a while before a renewed interest in the twentieth century. Methods of Reading Once you have selected a pendulum that you feel comfortable using, you can begin. First you should completely relax, sit down and clear your mind and emotions. This is really important, as it’s easy to unconsciously influence the pendulum with your personal wants and desires. When consulting the pendulum, you should establish which direction signifies ‘yes’ and which is ‘no’ to be able to understand how it is communicating with you. To do this simply, hold your pendulum between your thumb and first finger and ask it “show me yes” and “show me no.” You must be completely open to the pendulum’s response – it will guide itself, moved only by your thoughts or a spirit (usually your spirit guide). Start by asking it a few easy ‘practise’ questions (e.g. am I female?) to reassure yourself that it is working in the correct way. Once you are confident, you can start divining information that you don’t already know. When you have built a good relationship with your pendulum you can begin to use it to determine more than just ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers. Pendulums have a variety of different uses including dowsing, pendulum charts, finding ghosts/spirits, and locating lost objects. If you are interested in these kinds of readings, then a number of Psychic Light’s readers are fortunate enough to have the gift of reading a pendulum.
