What is a Pendulum?

A pendulum is a simple tool that can be used for divination, dowsing, and energy healing. It consists of a weight, often a crystal or metal object, attached to a string or chain. When held or suspended, the pendulum can swing back and forth or in a circular motion.

Choosing the Right Pendulum

Before you start using a pendulum, it's important to choose the right one for you. There are various types of pendulums available, each with its own unique energy. Some popular choices include crystal pendulums, metal pendulums, and wooden pendulums. Trust your intuition and select a pendulum that resonates with you.

Preparing Your Pendulum

Once you have chosen a pendulum, it's essential to cleanse and charge it before use. You can cleanse it by holding it under running water, smudging it with sage or palo santo, or placing it in sunlight or moonlight. To charge it, hold it in your hands and visualize positive energy flowing into it.

Getting Started

Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can focus without distractions. Hold the top end of the pendulum chain or string between your thumb and forefinger, allowing the weight to hang freely. Relax your mind and body, and take a few deep breaths to center yourself.

Establishing Yes and No Responses

Before you begin asking questions, it's important to establish the pendulum's responses for "yes" and "no." Start by asking simple questions that you already know the answers to. Observe the pendulum's movement for each response. For example, it may swing back and forth for "yes" and in a circular motion for "no."

Asking Questions

Once you have established the pendulum's responses, you can start asking questions. Remember to ask clear and specific questions that can be answered with a "yes" or "no." Hold the pendulum steady and ask your question mentally or out loud. Observe the pendulum's movement to receive your answer.

Interpreting the Answers

Interpreting the pendulum's answers requires intuition and practice. Trust your instincts and pay attention to any feelings, thoughts, or sensations that arise. Remember that the pendulum is a tool that can provide guidance and insights, but ultimately, you are the one in control of your decisions and actions.


Using a pendulum can be a fascinating and empowering experience. Whether you are seeking answers, guidance, or simply exploring your intuition, a pendulum can be a valuable tool in your spiritual journey. Remember to approach it with an open mind and trust the process.
