Step 1 - Using a Pendulum to Go Deeper
As one of the main and most important intuition building tools, mastering the connection to your higher-self and subconscious mind is a crucial step to learn how to connect with more complex types of energies like your spirit guides and angels. Plus it can be a very useful tool for communicating with them. Which is why, mastering the pendulum is a must have! So, how does a pendulum work?
You might have heard that Pendulums are mystical objects that help you communicate with the spirit world. In history, however, Pendulums have been used for many different things, but the one that stands out most is for finding valuable objects. There are some rumors that some generals have used them to predict where landmines would be so they can avoid them. Pendulums are usually objects that are built from two parts. One part is the chain and the other is the object that is on the chain which is usually a gemstone or a piece of wood.
By focusing your attention on the question that you want to find an answer to, your subconscious mind slowly awakens. Usually, we have all the answers we need but we don’t realize that we do. So, we aimlessly search for answers. Luckily our subconsious mind is a very powerful thing. We have endless capacity of information stored in it, but no way to access it. Which is where the pendulums come in the picture.
What a pendulum does is it allows you to emit energy frequencies that will help your subconscious mind, not only to awake but also find a way to give you the answers you are looking for, you already know them but yet you don't have access to them. And how does the subconscious part of our brain do that? Simply by sending electrical impulses to your nerves and make tiny unnoticeable micro-movements with your fingers. We bet you'd never even feel them, or expect them, or you might have thought of it. But it's true! You are the one doing all the magic, because you already know the answers! That way, by focusing, and emitting and receiving the proper energy type using a pendulum, you will get to tap into the part of your mind that has all the answers. How awesome is that?
Types Of Pendulums
Wooden Pendulums are simpler than the crystal pendulums. They are plain looking, but since they are made of wood they are more reliable. Unlike crystal pendulums, wood pendulums aren’t affected by the energies surrounding them, they are only affected by the energy of the one that is holding the pendulum. While they are more reliable for getting answers, they don’t help too much when it comes to healing yourself.
2. Crystal Pendulum
Crystal Pendulums are more complex. The simpler ones are made out of different crystals, and the more complex ones contain different crystals, specifically chosen to heal you. The main thing that you must know before choosing a crystal pendulum is what type of crystal it is made of, and what kind of energy that crystal puts out. Or, you can trust your intuition and pick a random one – sometimes your subconscious mind knows exactly what you need, even before you know it. While crystal pendulums are better for healing yourself that doesn’t mean that they can’t reveal answers for you. With proper care and cleansing, crystal pendulums can also give you reliable answers.
How to use a Pendulum?
We like to start off by setting the right atmosphere. Lighting a candle with some incense can really help you to channel the energy needed to find out all the answers that you have. We like to use an All Purpose 7 Day Candle combined with some Reiki Energy Fragrance Oil.
Now it’s time to cleanse your pendulum. Light up your Sage smudge stick and bring your pendulum over the smoke. Then let the smoke envelop the space in which you are cleansing your pendulum. Lastly, close your eyes, breathe in and breathe out of the smoke of the sage. Then, open your window to let the smoke along with any residual negativity out of your home.
By cleansing your pendulum before setting your intentions in it, and before you use it will not only help you start off on a clean slate when programming your intentions – it will also help you to always be led by your pendulum in the right direction. Besides sage you can also use:
New Moon Light – The evening of the new moon, you can leave your pendulum overnight on the moonlight to recharge and get rid of negative vibes. However, if there are negative vibes lurking around your home, once the moonlight of the new moon is gone, they can interact with how your pendulum works.
Salt – You can bury your pendulum in a glass of sea salt and leave it in the salt for 24 hours. Then discard the salt immediately.
Write down your intention. Make it short and clear. You can even add some affirmations to increase your intention’s potency.
Now, hold your pendulum into your palm. Squeeze it, as you focus on the flame of the candle. Breathe in and breathe out. Calm yourself down. Now, close your eyes and focus on your heartbeat. Feel how the blood in your body pulses into every part of your body. Breathe in and breathe out. Let that calming and soothing energy overwhelm you. Now, open your eyes and read your intention out loud. Feel the energy of the crystal pendulum radiating over you. Breathe in and breathe out.
