Use a Pendulum for Decision Making

Pendulum for Decision Making

Do you need to have answers and you need them fast? If so, you might want to consider using a pendulum. Pendulums are just another tool that is a mystic object that can help you to use your intuition and to get answers.

One great thing about this is that pendulums are not too expensive, and you can even make your own.

What is a Pendulum?

A pendulum is a tool of divination that is made from a string and something weighted like a charm, a piece of metal or glass or a crystal. You can buy a pendulum that is already made, or you can make one yourself. Then, you can hold the pendulum and ask yes, or no questions and the pendulum will swing to give you the answers.

Using a pendulum is considered a form of dowsing. This is something that has been around since ancient times and pendulums used to be used to help find water and minerals.

How to Use a Pendulum?

A pendulum will move when your subconscious mind sets it into motion. It will cause the pendulum to move a certain way. You can ask your spirit guides to help the pendulum move or maybe it is all done by gravity. Whatever is causing the pendulum to move, you can use it to give you a clear answer.

Once you have a pendulum, here is what you need to do next:


Make sure that you cleanse your pendulum. This can get rid of any negative energy or any stagnant energy that is attached to the pendulum. You can put it in the sun or moonlight, put it under running water or use smudging or sound to cleanse it.


You then need to make a connection with your pendulum. This is a way that you can ask questions and get the answers that you need. Hold the pendulum while you are meditating and let the connection happen.

Notice the Direction

Before you start asking your pendulum questions, you need to make sure that you know what the movements mean. Ask questions that you know the answer to but before you do, say, “Please show me what a yes answer looks like.” Notice how the pendulum swings. Then ask, “Please show me what a no answer looks like,” and notice how the pendulum swings. You can also ask for a maybe answer.

Try Out the Pendulum

Then, you ask a question that you know such as, “Is my name Tom?” If your name really is Tom, watch how the pendulum swings and know that this is your yes answer. Then do the same thing for the no answer.

Ask Your Questions

After you figure out what yes, no, and maybe looks like, ask your questions. You should say things like, “Is it in my best interest…” and then let the pendulum answer. You can ask big or small questions, relationship questions, career questions or anything that you want. Ask any and however many questions that you want.

Finding a Pendulum

As we said, you can make your own pendulum but if you are wanting to buy one, you can go on the internet or go into crystal shops. Make sure that you feel a connection before you ever choose a pendulum to purchase.

Pendulum Grid

You can also make a dowsing board or a pendulum grid that can give you answers other than yes or no. You can place cards with answers written on them and then ask questions. Where the pendulum stops is the answer.
