If you start to work with the pendulum, and you are not getting clear swings on the answers, then go over what could be causing this. Ask the pendulum "Is there a more appropriate time?"....
Perhaps there are children screaming in the other room, or "Is there a more appropriate place?" or "Is there a more appropriate way to state the question?" These are always easy questions to get accurate answers to. Poor communication. (inaccurate phrasing) The most important thing is how you phrase the question. For example, don't just ask "Is this water good for me"?" Be more accurate: Good in what way? The water may have both good and bad aspects. For example, you may be extremely thirsty, so the water is good for replenishing your body fluids, but the water could be tainted and later give you diarrhea.
So state the question more clearly such as "Will this water serve my highest and greatest good?" Asking questions that are too general: Don't ask general questions such as "Is Mary healthy?" Rather ask specific questions such as "Is Mary's diet causing her health problems?" Being tired. Forcing the situation. Using the pendulum even though the time or circumstances may not be right.
Being off Center: Feeling mentally or emotionally out of balance. You need to be in the right frame of mind. Focusing too heavily on the pendulum itself, and not enough on the information inside you. Being too close to high frequency electrical equipment (operate at least 3 ft from a TV or computer screen).

PENDULUMTips for successful Pendulum use
Cleanse the energy around and within you. Do this by visualizing a cleansing shower of white light that envelopes you. Breathe. Slow steady breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth will calm and center you.
SUBCONSCIOUSWhat the Pendulum can be used for?
The pendulum can be used for choosing between alternatives in a relatively wide range of areas. To get an answer from the pendulum, simply ask any yes/no question about a specific thing that would be good for you, but only in areas where you have the right to make the decision.
