When it comes to tools for divination, the pendulum is one of the easiest to learn to use. Even though it is fairly simple to use it is still a very powerful tool. If it is difficult to decide between two choices, or it is impossible to come up with answers to troubling questions through any other method, then try divination using a pendulum. This may well be the tool that will help sort through the issue. Divination using a pendulum is one of the simplest methods of unlocking a part of your psychic ability.
The pendulum is nothing more than a weighted object on the end of a string. It is suggested that you use an object that has some emotional value to you like a ring or a crystal. Try a few items to see which one strikes your fancy.
Once the object is chosen it is necessary to determine which direction of the swingmeans which response. For example, side to side can mean yes, up and down can mean no, and a circular motion can mean undecided or don't know. It is possible to determine the direction of the swing to mean anything you'd like as long as the decision is made ahead of time.
Experiment and test a yes response by asking the pendulum to give a yes answer. Do the same thing for each possible response, such as no, possibly, and "I don't know." Once your pendulum is swinging strongly in whatever direction you are testing, then it is ready to be used for divination purposes.
You should be prepared for the pendulum to give answers that you may not like. If the true answer to your question is not what is wished to be then it is necessary to make changes to make the situation turn out right in your life, or be capable of dealing with the truth. In fact, this is good evidence that your pendulum is giving the true answer to your question and you are not influencing the swing. This is the unfortunate part of divination using a pendulum; sometimes we see things that we wish to be different.
Divination using a pendulum works through the subconscious mind. Many people believe that our subconscious knows the answer to every question we have we simply don't have the ability to understand the language of the subconscious. It speaks to us in our dreams and through the use of divination tools. This is one of the most common methods of interpreting the symbolic language of our subconscious.
It is never easy to seek the answers to the difficult questions in our lives. Sometimes we would prefer not to know the answer. But if you are truly seeking the truth for the questions in your life then divination using a pendulum can give them to you. You will find that you will use divination using a pendulum more and more as you begin to trust and believe in the answers it gives you.
