  • How to Use a Gemstone Pendulum for Divine Guidance and Healing

    Pendulums are wonderful tools used for divination and healing practices. Divination tools like this are all about channeling your own will and power to ask the universe a question and using your intuition to gain a response. Pendulums often consist of a gemstone or crystal that are attached to a chain or cord that are weighted at the other end. The gemstone you choose can improve the accuracy and effectiveness of the readings. A classic choice is clear Quartz as it is an excellent channeler and amplifier of energies. Your choice of gemstone only matters if you have a specific purpose in mind, such as needing Rose Quartz to attune more effectively into readings regarding love or relationships. The only true necessities when choosing your pendulum are: ensuring it has enough of a point to give a guided answer, can effectively swing upon a cord or chain, and that the pendulum resonates with you, the wielder. A bond can often be felt by the owner of the pendulum but if one isn’t there to begin with, use and practice will help it grow.

    Follow these steps to use a gemstone pendulum like a pro:

    1. Choose your gemstone pendulum. There are many different types of gemstones and crystals that can be used as pendulums, each with their own unique properties and energies. Some popular choices include amethyst, quartz, and citrine. Consider what you hope to achieve with your pendulum readings and choose a gemstone that aligns with your intention.

    2. Find a quiet, comfortable space. To get the most accurate readings, it's important to eliminate as many distractions as possible. Find a quiet place where you can sit or stand comfortably and focus on your pendulum.

    3. Hold the pendulum. Hold the cord or chain between your thumb and forefinger, with your elbow resting on a table or your lap. Keep your hand and arm as still as possible, as any movements will affect the pendulum's swing. Many people will often use a pendulum mat or board to give the device a clear path to follow and make the owner’s job easier. If you don’t have a pendulum board or just want to go old school, you can hold the pendulum above the palm of your other hand instead.

    4. Test your Pendulum. Before you ask your first real question, be sure to set yourself up for success. Like any new tool pendulums can be finicky. Make sure you’re on the same wavelength before asking the real questions. Test your pendulum by asking it, one at a time, to show you yes and no. Track the way it swings, if you’re not making it follow the setup of a board, the swings can be different depending on the practitioner. Your swing pattern does not matter so long as you can interpret it. Once you’ve mastered your swings, ask it a question you already know the answer to. If it answers correctly move onto the next step. If it answers incorrectly, cleanse your pendulum and start again. 
    5. Ask your question. Formulate a clear, specific question that you want the pendulum to answer. For example, "Will it rain tomorrow?" or "Is this the right job for me?" It's important to keep the question as open-ended as possible, as a yes or no answer may not always be accurate and this technique allows you to refine your questions as you continue.

    6. Interpret the pendulum's movements. As you become more familiar with your pendulum, you may find that you can interpret its movements more accurately. Pay attention to the speed, direction, and intensity of the swing, as well as any changes in the pendulum's movements over time.

    7. Use the pendulum for healing. In addition to divination, gemstone pendulums can also be used for healing purposes. Hold the pendulum over a specific area of the body, and allow it to swing back and forth. The pendulum's movements may indicate areas of blockage or imbalance, and the gemstone's special powers may help to bring balance and healing to the area.

    Using a gemstone pendulum is a fun and informative way to connect with your intuition and gain insight into your life. With practice, you may find that you can use your pendulum to ask a wide range of questions and receive helpful guidance on everything from relationships to career decisions.
