Pallomancy, or using a Pendulum is a form of Divination. There is a lot of different names for this. Divination is a way to gain information for a question you may have. There is not one only right way for Divination, there are plenty of ways you can get your questions answered. For this guide, I chose to use a pendulum.
Okay, so first things first, you select the pendulum that you want to work with. If you feel that it is right for you, then use it. Everyone has a different pendulum, you find what feels right to you.
Mine is a sliver chain, it’s kind of short. The stone is Amethyst and it is a crystal point. I love my pendulum, it is beautiful to me and it works perfectly.
Before you begin:
- Relax. I need for you guys to do is relax. Find a chair or sit down on the bed. Whatever works for you. Make sure there is not a lot of noise around. It could interfere with your pendulum.You may also relax your elbow on a table if you find it more comfortable when holding the pendulum. No stress!
- Meditate. (Optional) I did not mediate when I did this, but for those of you who may struggle with this more, I suggest you do meditate. There is nothing wrong with meditating. I do have a guide here on how to meditate.
- Holding your pendulum. Make sure when you are holding the end of the chain that you are holding it with your index finger and thumb. Also, make sure the chain/string is straight.
Now, your pendulum can be guided with your own thoughts or a spirit who is working through you. It mostly is your spirit guide but it could be others such as your love ones.
The pendulum can move in different directions. It will be different directions for everyone. So if it goes counter clockwise for yes for your friend and yet you have a different movement, it does not mean you are wrong or your friend. It moves differently with people.
I also have heard that you can set the movements yourself and this is especially handy if you have more than one pendulum. I believe if you tell it, it could work. I am unsure and I have not tried this.
There are different ways your pendulum can swing:
- Back and Forth
- Side to Side
- Stay Still
Now that you know the movements, it’s time to address your pendulum. I just saying “Pendulum, please tell me…”. You can start the question by saying these things:
- “Pendulum, please tell me…”
- “Spirit Guides, please tell me…”
- “Higher Self, please tell me…”
There are more ways of introducing the question, but I think these three are pretty good.
Now that you know the basics, we can begin.
Make sure you cleanse your pendulum before you start. I bury it in sea salt because I feel more connected to it. You can bury it in the ground. Whatever you like to cleanse it with, please do so.
Hold your pendulum and make sure it is straight and not moving. If it is moving, it could give you the wrong answer when you do request for it.
Setting your motions:
- First we need to find the motions for your Yes, No and Maybe (Don’t know).
- You can start by saying “Please show me the answer for yes” or “Show me ‘Yes’.” I use the first saying and it had worked for me. You can use the second one.
- It will eventually start moving. If it does not move, then say “Stronger, please.” or “Louder, please.” or “Be more clear, please.” You may also repeat saying them.
- You may stop the pendulum and try it again. If you notice it is the same movement during those attempts then that would be your answer for yes.
- Repeat steps 1-4 for No and Maybe (Don’t know).
Now, once you have the motions set for your answers you can ask simple questions like, “Is today Friday?” or “Is my hair brown?”. If the pendulum answers the simple questions correctly, then you can move on to bigger questions.
When asking a pendulum a question it must be:
Make sure your question is to the point. Do not ask several questions at once. You may start off with one question and do followups.
- I heard using a pendulum can help you find lost items or work on personal issues.
- Pendulums may not be accurate with questions about the future. For example: “Will I be rich one day?”. Due to the fact that our decisions can make or break that future, it is possible that it may not come true at all.
- If you notice the pendulum spinning more, then more energy was place in it.
- If the motion is weak, remember saying, “Stronger, please.” or “Louder please.” or “Be more clear, please.” will help it.
