Beginners guide to a pendulum reading


crystal point to the tarot card that needs to be picked

The pendulum is a symmetrical mass or weight, known as the bob, hanging from a cable or rod from a fixed frictionless pivot point.

It is used to obtain divine guidance through oscillating vibrations of energy received from a higher restoring force that can shed light on some questions you are seeking answers to.

Through the process of dowsing it will promote healing at a deep spiritual level.

Its movement and simple harmonic motion around certain energy fields will interpret different states of emotion and used correctly can help find to path to fulfilment and harmony.

Whether it be work, love, relationships, or anything from finances to the future, the pendulum will allow you to receive messages that float beyond the physical plane by honing in on the vibrations they emanate.

It was Galileo who first observed the trigonometrical and mathematical properties of the natural frequency of the pendulum swing as he observed how the period of the pendulum varied with the square root of the length.

The universal force of gravity, which resides in all matter, is the key ingredient that make the pendulum such a fascinating tool. 

In healing practises, the motion of a pendulum will thus be able to provide insights into the net force of the gravitational field around your spirit and energy and what these represent. Its primary focus will be to detect and receive amplified communication from your subconscious.

There are many different options to choose from. The length of the string and mass of the bob you go with should be determined by what works for you.

A good indicator will be to hold one with the pivot point at eye level with the bob hanging level with your heart. 

It is recommended that you choose a pendulum consisting of either wood, crystal or a gemstone that speaks to you, with its purity being able to better absorb multi-layered frequencies of vibrations.

You can also create one at home with a simple symmetrical object and a piece of string. The length of the string, not the weight of the bob, will affect the period of the pendulum.

How does it work?

Before starting, you should clear your mind, let time slow, be in the moment, settle your breathing and become completely relaxed.

You will then be required to determine what the pendulum movements mean to you. The pendulum natural harmonic motion can be up-down in vertical straight lines, left-right on a horizontal axis or in a circle.

You should decide before the first use what direction answers yes, which answers no, and which cannot answer back. 

Hold the pendulum between your thumb and index finger in one hand with the other just touching the bottom of the bob. Release after you have asked your questions and find your answers depending on the swing’s response. 

Don’t forget to regularly cleanse your pendulum so that it remains pure. It is an item that should be cherished and treated with care and respect as you will forever be connected to it once you have chosen yours. Keep in mind that due to gravity and air resistance, the sin θ or angle of the amplitude of the oscillation will reduce and slow down, however the vibrations should continue to enable you to receive answers.  

Balancing your chakras

The pendulum can also be used to find chakra points for those uninitiated, determining the exact location of the energy receptors of each of your seven chakras channels. With the acceleration of gravity being the same anywhere on the planet, you should be able to detect small variations on vibrations over the energy fields of your chakras.

You can use a pendulum during a chakra cleansing session, this will amplify the connection between you and the divine tool that purifies the energy conduits and helps you reach a higher realm of awareness.

The pendulum is a great object to concentrate the mind and help you feel the universal energy that flows through all things, allowing you to find balance and serenity. Go to the complete overview of the best online psychics.
