These pendulum dowsing tips will be the easiest way to kick-start your psychic development. Any pendant which is attached to a chain, necklace, or leather cord such as a wedding ring on the end of a string or chain will get you started. And pendulums make awesome gifts for Psychic Junkies. Others will wear them as a talisman or good luck amulet.
You’ve often thought you’d make a marvelous psychic, if only you knew how to begin. Metaphysical mentors frequently have their protégées start with a pendulum. Not only is this the easiest divination tool to master, but it is also an auspicious way to get your intuitive mojo humming, while at the same time raising your overall vibration.
The nitty-gritty of pendulum dowsing
Working in concert, you can dowse for answers to simple yes or no questions. This is an ideal way to get acquainted. Pendulums are scrying devices which can help facilitate dialogue with higher selves, spirits and/or connections with the spiritual realm.
Connecting with your scrying pendulum
Like many metaphysical tools, some experts say you do not choose a pendulum, it chooses you. Browse your favorite New Age shop and select 5-6 possible pendulums that appeal to you aesthetically. Put them aside.
Once you’re done perusing, pick one up, close your eyes and gently hold it in your closed fist. Do you feel tingles up and down your back? Does a pleasant warmth spread over your body? Keep testing until you find yourself the right one before making the decision to buy.
As a rule, psychics use their dominant hand to operate a dowsing pendulum. Sit down and put your elbow on the kitchen table. Hold the hold the pendulum by the clasp of the chain or knot of thread, etc. between your thumb and pointer finger. Position your palm downward. The crystal or pendant should be dangling about six inches to a foot ahead of you.
Now it’s time to chat with your higher self. Simply ask your pendulum out loud which way it will swing to answer a question “yes”.
Next, ask what direction it will move if the answer is “no”. Finally, find out what it will do if it doesn’t know the answer.
It may take a few minutes for your initial experiment to gear up. Just watch, wait, and see whether it will move side to side, in a circle, clockwise or counterclockwise or backward and forward. Take note and learn the responses for future reference.
Personally, I like to have my 'yes' as an up and down / forward backward movement as I can easily relate that to nodding my head for yes. And I like my 'no' to be side to side as I easily relate that to moving my head side to side when saying no. So, I have designed my Pendulum Dowsing Chart accordingly.
When you have set your own yes and no, thank the pendulum and it will stop moving. You may call it a day at this point or ask a few easy yes or no questions. For example:
Practice in short increments until you get used to using your pendulum and gain the confidence that it is giving correct answers to your questions.
Then you can continue scrying by asking the more important questions you need information about.
