A simple tool used for communicating and gaining guidance from the spiritual world. This is one of the easiest methods of divination. When used for divination, the pendulum acts as an amplifier that signals energy vibrations coming from a spiritual guide or the divine. These vibrations focus their attention on the pendulum and cause it to move in specific directions, giving you the answers to the questions you put to the tool.
The pendulum is simply a string or chain, waited by a pointed or spherical crystal or some other form of heavy object. It is best to use all natural materials in the construction of your pendulum and its string or chain.
To use a pendulum, sit at a table. Rest the elbow of your writing hand and hold the end of the chain between your thumb and forefinger. Ask a "yes" or "no" question. Hold your arm and the chain perfectly still and wait.
The pendulum will begin to swing. There are two different methods of interpreting these movements. If the pendulum swings in a circle either clockwise or counter clockwise, the answer is yes; if it swings in a back and forth motion the answer is no. If it refuses to move, to answer is given.
The second method of interpreting involves only circular motion. A clockwise circle is yes; a counterclockwise motion, is no.
