A pendulum reading utilizes a weighted object on the end of a string. Unlike the hypnosis stereotypes of old, using a pendulum can help with increasing intuitive senses because of the rhythmic motion of the object. This calming of the mind can bring up subconscious ideas or answers your higher self may have for the questions you have asked.
The pendulum itself doesn’t have to be anything special, but most people prefer a small object about six inches long that is pointed on the bottom end. The object shouldn’t be too heavy or too light. The string holding the pendulum can be any variety of materials, such as a small chain, thread, or string.
To swing the pendulum, hold it in your dominant hand. The pendulum should be able to move freely, and you should make sure that you are comfortable and ready to sit still for a little bit of time. By following the movement of the pendulum with your eyes, you will begin to awaken the intuitive, or psychic sense.
