How to Use a Pendulum

Do you know what a pendulum is or how to use it? Here we will guide you on just that and tell you how to easily use a crystal pendulum to help you answer any of your questions.

What is a Crystal Pendulum?

crystal pendulum is a crystal that has been polished and shaped to a point and then placed on a chain. That’s it. It can be any size and it can be any sort of string or chain. Normally they are small. The crystal is normally about 1-2 inches in size. The chain or string is usually about 6-8 inches long. The whole thing fits easily in your pocket.

Throughout history, pendulums have been used to locate water, gold, gems, and other valuable items. In Europe, early scientists and doctors would use pendulums to locate infections and weak areas of the body. Doctors would also use certain pendulums to determine the gender of unborn infants.

People also trust the pendulum enough and have developed such a relationship with it that they allow it to guide them in the most difficult spots of their lives. During WWII, a pendulum was used by Colonel Kenneth Merrylees to locate deeply buried bombs. Many miners from South Africa will invite a practitioner with a pendulum to help them locate precious minerals in the Earth. These small wonders have a long history.

How to Use a Crystal Pendulum

You can use a crystal pendulum to answer almost any question you might have. Now be advised that it can only say “yes” or “no” so you do have to work at the answers a bit. But with that, the uses are almost boundless. Will I get a job? Will I marry? Should I move to California? Should I go out with her? Is Friday a good day for the party?


How does a pendulum work?

Quite simply, a pendulum reacts to your subconscious mind. When held properly, the pendulum will react to very small nerve reactions in your fingers that are generated by your unconscious mind in response to a question posed. Different nerve reactions will be detected depending on what your subconscious mind knows.

These nerve reactions are transmitted to your fingers from your unconscious mind and thru your fingers to the chain holding the weight of the pendulum. These tiny never transmissions affect the chain and are then transmitted through the chain to the weight – causing it to move in some direction.

So to debunk the first myth, a pendulum is not moved by some spirit, or by magic, it is moved by your mind, just the part you can’t normally communicate with very well. But, there is some “magic” If we can figure out how to interpret the signals from the subconscious mind, we can communicate with it! It can tell us things our conscious mind doesn’t know.

How to Read a Pendulum


To use a pendulum, you need to be able to read its motions. Here’s how:

First, sit in a chair at a table in a quiet place, preferably alone. Put one elbow on the table and let the pendulum dangle from your fingers. Prop your elbow with your other hand. Hold the chain between your thumb and forefinger with just enough force to keep from dropping the pendulum. The pendulum should be free to move and be one to two inches from the table. Now relax.

Let the pendulum swing as it will until it settles down motionless. Just watch it and think about it coming to rest.

When it is just hanging down, motionless, think of the word “YES.”

Ask yourself some questions in which the answer is a resounding “YES.”

Am I alive?

Am I smart?

You get the idea. Now the pendulum will eventually begin to move

Keep working the “YES” in your mind.

Speak it out loud if you like. What you are seeking is to get a consistent result in the movement of the pendulum when you mean “YES” Now this can take some folks a few minutes and it can take a day or two for others.

Be patient. If you need a couple of sessions to get it right, take them.

Next, we need to know how the pendulum react when we think of “NO”. Follow the same approach. But this time think about the word “NO” Ask questions that have “NO” as the answer. Be patient. Eventually, the pendulum will move in a consistent manner different than when you thought of “YES”.

Now, this process may take a day or so, and four or five sessions to get down pat. Don’t worry. Once it’s done, it’s done forever.

Now you need to practice and gain confidence. When you can get a reliable “Yes” movement in response to questions that you know have “yes” as the right answer, and you can get a reliable “NO” movement to questions that you know are not true, then you are ready to use a pendulum For most people we have found this takes a few days. Be religious with your practice. There… you are set up to use a pendulum.
