You could have watched a vintage movie with a hypnotist asking his subject to stare at a small object hanging from a string. The person follows the pendulum back and forth until the helpless person gets hypnotized.
Well, despite the memories of movie-house era stereotypes, the marketplace of pendulum readings are quickly becoming popular and sought after as psychic readings go for today. They do require some simple objects and they must be operated with consistency.
A Pendulum can be anything weighted suspended on string, rope or ribbon. It can be made of brass, copper, glass, wood, almost anything. The shape is best if the bottom is pointed. The string can be silk, cotton, metal, gold, any material will do. The Pendulum may be store bought or home-made.
Be sure the bob or bobber - or weight on the end - is not too light or too heavy. It should weigh less than half an ounce. The best shape for the weight - or point - is something that comes to a point. The best length for the pendulum is six inches.
To begin using a pendulum, hold it in your dominant hand. I like to loop my chain over my index finger with the end of the chain between my thumb and index finger, and the pendulum swinging freely. Make sure you are grounded, comfortable, and for the best successes, make sure you are not tired. A good position would be sitting upright in a chair. Keep your eyes on the point.
By using the pendulum, you will get answers from your "higher self" – also known as your intuition. Your psychic senses become sharper and more accurate as you go through the intuitive awakening. It is a simple process of being absorbed by the constant motion until the repetitive rhythm has so relaxed your mind that the future unfolds like a complex puzzle solving itself.
