Pendulums come in all shapes and sizes. They are quite simply tools that help us detect our energetic field. They are tuned to subtle vibrations and a good chakra pendulum can help us clear, balance and heal our bodies. The chakra system is the field of gentle subtle energy that animates our physical bodies.
A pendulum is a weight hanging from a fixed point. When pulled and released, the forces of gravity and inertia create movement. However, when no force is inflicted on the weight, something begins to happen naturally; energy moves the weight with a little help from the unconscious mind. Pendulums feel magical, for even when held completely still, they begin to move in detection of the invisible energy around us. When placed over the chakra centers (the 7 primary centers are most used) the pendulum will move, showing us both the direction and size of the energy the chakra is emitting. The energy level will reveal balance, imbalance, or energy blocks.
Hold the string between your thumb and forefinger. Extend your arm so the pendulum resides at the level of your heart for this first encounter. When holding the pendulum, ask it if it is willing to assist you. Taking a moment to link psychically with the tool is not only good manners but sets the stage for a productive working relationship. If you feel a lift in your spirit, a clear yes has been given. If you feel any pull or resistance, kindly move along and choose another.
Once you have connected with a pendulum, clear your mind and hold it still at the level of your heart. Ask it to show you your "yes" then wait for it to stop. The ask it to show you your "no". We always want the pendulum to stop moving on its own for this indicates it has shared all it has to reveal. When you have found a pendulum that responds, you may also ask if this pendulum is willing to work with you in an ongoing partnership.
As this is a tool of the sacred, please cleanse your pendulum before putting it to work. You may choose to keep it under your pillow, on a window ledge to absorb the sun and moon, or outside in the earth. As you would cleanse your crystals, also cleanse your chakra pendulum to ensure it maintains a clean working field. Pendulums will be affected by our thoughts, so it is imperative that you first be in a clear space, without attachment, so that you may rely on this tool's unbiased response. The pendulum, as an extension of the person using it, may be influenced both consciously and subconsciously making the responses accurate, as well as inaccurate.
Wishful thinking or a preconceived outcome, however slight, can be magnified, making the use of the pendulum in that instance ineffective. Trust your pendulum and the ability to clear your mind when asking questions. Your mind can play heavily on responses, so you must be neutral when asking and be sure not to ask questions that elevate your own energy field. Pendulums are excellent at finding things that are lost (and therefore neutral) but can get a little muddy when relying on it to make big decisions. I once was at a workshop where a woman was using her pendulum to validate everything the teacher was offering us.
This level of reliance to me feels unfair and out of balance. These are tools to assist us: they are not material things upon which we rely too heavily. So please, don't let your pendulum make life choices for you. While it may offer one avenue of knowingness, it is your own heart and the truth within that should direct final decisions. When you are ready to embark on your healing work, pendulums are excellent at balancing the chakras. Harmony is the natural frequency of the universe and needs to be restored gently.
Place the pendulum over the chakra center (3rd eye for instance would be over the center of the forehead whereas the 2nd chakra would be at the center of the body just below the navel). Wait for the pendulum to begin moving on its own to show you the size and direction this wheel of energy is moving. Start at the root or crown and one by one, make your way through each chakra simply gathering information at first. Ideally you should notice the direction and size of each chakra to be the same. An erratic swing of the pendulum will show you where someone is off balance.
If no movement is detected, there is a block in the energy field and it will need to be addressed. Once you've checked all the fields, go back and invite each one to come into harmony. You are not making anything happen, you are simply asking the wisdom of the body to correct itself. We are wise beyond our remembrance at times and come to rely on tools and others to make us better. The beauty of a pendulum for chakra balancing is that is so accessible. It is an easy tool of self care and one that requires little investment and minimal effort.
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.
SUBCONSCIOUSImportant things about the Pendulum
As long as you keep your sights on the fact that you are the pendulum, that your subconscious mind is really providing the answers, you avoid making the tool more important than the consciousness behind it.
