Pendulum Basics

I personally love pendulums and have always been attracted to them.  I have been told many times in readings that in a past life, that I was an agricultural dowser in Ancient Egypt. That would explain my attraction to them.

It is an art that has survived to the present day and is becoming more popular than ever, due to the accuracy and ease of use which enables up to 90% of people to successfully employ this method of gaining knowledge and information in their everyday lives.  All you need is trust, integrity and a willingness to try.  

A “crystal” pendulum is a powerful tool as it is an amplifier of energy. Other items will work too, but to begin with a “crystal” pendulum is more responsive. The pendulum swings through the use of the parasympathetic nerve system, known as the automatic organs of the subconscious mind. These are the same muscles which direct the involuntary actions of the body, such as respiration, digestion and heart beat. 

The long and short of it is that this is energy work, and it needs to be of the highest integrity.  There needs to be protection and pure intent. You do not tap into what is not of your concern (other peoples business that does not have a thing to do with you).  The Karma will be inaccurate answers. 

Another important note is that it has nothing to do with any “Spiritual Movement or New Age”.  This knowledge dates back many thousands of years and involves every ancient civilization.  To this present day, in many countries, doctors used this tool to assist them in diagnosis of patients.  My own vet, pulled it out when checking a diagnosis on our cat.   The Army, Navy and even Shell Mobil employ professional dowsers to locate water, oil precious metals, minerals and underground storage and ammunition dumps. One professional dowser was able to locate every American and Russian nuclear submarine with 100% accuracy, whilst sitting at the Pentagon with detailed maps. 

It is important to understand that the pendulum is not actually communicating, but simply acting as an amplifier for a type of frequency which we cannot normally access, and the pendulum is simply translating this into a visual signal.  It is thought that this frequency is actually emanating from your Higher Self, or Universal Knowledge.  Most importantly, it is a tool to be used wisely and a tool to be respected. 

How to choose and tune the Pendulum 

Working with a pendulum is about quests, your quests – seeking to find truth, or to clear energy or measure doses. All practical and common uses of the pendulum.

Beginners find it easy to dowse with a long chain and with practise you can dowse with shorter length. Note the conditions of where you dowse, if outdoors, the weight needs to be heavier rather than lighter.  Choose the one that resonates with your personal energy.  Then, bond with the tool by inviting it into your energy field or psyche. 
Say – “I the owner of the Pendulum, declare that only the Force for Good can respond to my quests when using this Pendulum or any other Dowsing tool; I promise to use my Pendulum only for Good.” Or  “ I ask for the highest and these best source to give me true and clear answers to the questions I seek answered with no harm to anyone”.

It is important to realize and remember that using your Pendulum is not a game, but a means of helping your conscious self to work closely with the Force of Good – your Spirit Guides can help by acting as your ‘Gatekeeper”  as you link to the spirit world.  It may connect you to other souls, and may give you access to Universal Knowledge.

You should be in a state of serious focus when using your Pendulum.  This means being really sincere and honest, concentrating on what you are saying and thinking only good thoughts.  Place you conscious awareness at the third eye level, you may feel yourself expand and your mind chatter will usually lesson.  

To become proficient you may ask for permission to practice on silly things like playing cards or asking questions – but with no harm to anyone. For some people, the pendulum works quickly, accurately and in no time at all.  For others it does require practise. 

Many answers can be obtained by using a pendulum, providing they are not “open” questions and are easily answered with a “yes” or “no”.

First you have to determine what each pendulum movement means for you. Always have your feet firm on the floor (grounding is required),  hold the pendulum by the end of the chain between you thumb and index finger.  Make sure that your upper body and back are straight, enabling the energy to flow freely. Relax, and for accurate answers have your guard up and mind focused.

The pendulum generally moves in four directions, up-down, left-right or in an anti clockwise circle or clockwise circle.   Once you have a yes or no, then ask for a “Can’t answer or don’t know” or “I don’t know what to say” (sometimes we may need to rephrase the question or the question shouldn’t be asked now).  Practice often so the connection becomes stronger.   Once you have determined your directions, test it to questions you already know the answer. 

Remember:  Einstein’s famous equation, E + MC² equates energy and matter.  All living things are a mixture of energy and matter.


  1. Great class on pendulums. I am amazed that they can be used for so many things. I have just recently bought one and i am excited about learning to use it. Therefore I would be interested in doing the workshop on pendulums that you mentioned. :-)

    1. Hi Sam,
      I am pleased that you got some good tips about the pendulum. It is a great tool, and that is what it is. I don't recommend people become dependant on the pendulum, as I believe you have to trust your intuition. Used correctly, the pendulum backs up the intuition. As we talked in that class, it is also useful for dowsing for finding things, ask if this medication or remedy is for your highest self best interest.... etc..
      We will do a pendulum workshop one day but ask anytime if you have any questions.

      Thanks for your support.
