How to Use a Pendulum the Right Way


Psychics have different tools of divination that they use. Some will use tarot cards; others use crystals balls and there are many that use pendulums.

When you are working with a pendulum, you need to know that this is a tool that can give you answers. You can use this which is a weight on the end of a string or a chain. This can be made of things such as glass, metal, or other things.

This is not something that you need to make decisions in your life daily, but you should use it in different situations that you need to get a clearer answer on something you need to know. You can ask the pendulum questions about things in your life such as your relationships, health or even your career. The questions can be easy or hard.

Connecting with a Pendulum

When you look at a pendulum the best thing that you can do first is to connect with it. This is important with any kind of tools that you use. The pendulum can only give you yes or no answers and so make sure that you ask questions in a way that you can get a clear answer.

When you use the pendulum, it is not like flipping a coin, but you can hold on to the pendulum while it moves, and it can connect with you and the energy of the universe and give you answers. Sometimes though, the energy will come to you from a different day and that is what the pendulum will respond to.

In order to get your pendulum to work, you have to find one that works for you. There is no right or wrong way to pick a pendulum, but you need to make sure that you connect with it. Make sure that you pick which stone or what kind of hanging you want for your chain or string.

Using the Pendulum

Once you decide what pendulum to use, you need to make sure that you are focusing on your intuition. Using your intuition to pick a pendulum is the best way to do it.

Cleansing It

Cleanse your pendulum by putting it in the moonlight, burying it, running it under water or adding salt to it. You need to find out what kind of stone you are using before cleansing it because water ruins some stones.


Make sure that you have your questions to ask. When you are wanting clarity in something, have more than one question to ask. The pendulum might not always give you the answers that you are wanting and sometimes the pendulum will refuse to answer your questions. When this happens, the pendulum will not move but will stay still.

Know the Pendulum

You have to learn what a yes and no answer means with your pendulum. You need to take a moment and let your mind chatter leave and learn to quiet your mind.

You can do this by holding the pendulum and asking it to show you a yes. Once it moves then ask it to show you a no. Once you know how the movements go then you can do this when you ask your questions.


To get the pendulum to answer you correctly, you can start with what you know. Ask them questions that will let you get the answers that you already know so that you can see the movement of the pendulum.

Open Heart

Keep your heart and mind open. You can do this by meditating and once you are open you can receive things easier in your life. You can practice this each day until you are able to seek the answers and get the pendulum to move to tell you what you need to know.
