40-55mm size stone. the chains are about 8 inch long. Please note minor imperfections in the stone and the chain may exist and these pendulums are sold as is. These are perfect for those who are just starting their work with pendulums.
You will receive one randomly selected pendulum. If you send me a private message identifying a specific pendulum you are interested in I will certainly send that one to you if it is available.
Pendulums have been used in magic and divination practically forever. They’re a very simple method for helping a person to try to gain information.
A pendulum is a small weight, suspended by some kind of string-like item. You concentrate on questions and read the direction the pendulum swings to gain answers.
Pendulums are one of the easier divination tools for a new Witch to learn how to use, and they can be very handy in a number of ways.
How Does a Pendulum Work?
The pendulum doesn’t know things that you don’t know. It doesn’t have a brain or a spirit inside of it. The information is actually coming from you the receiver. The information you gain from the pendulum is information that you’re picking up psychically on a subconscious level.
The unconscious mind is much more receptive to receiving psychic messages and tapping into universal knowledge (sometimes called the collective unconscious or Akashic records). But usually those messages get jumbled up as they come through all the filters of the conscious mind. These ‘filters’ cause us to ignore details, to doubt, to have prejudices and wishful thinking, so the messages can have a hard time coming through clearly. By using a divination tool like a pendulum, you’re bypassing that conscious mind and filtering the information through the subconscious mind. The subconscious is much less discriminating than the conscious mind. It doesn’t try to analyze the information coming through or fit it into any pre-conceived notions—it just lets the impressions come through as they come to you.
Like most tools, a pendulum only has the power that the user gives it. By pouring your own energy into the pendulum, you create a psychic connection with the tool, so it becomes like a means for your subconscious to deliver the messages your unconscious picks up.
How to Use a Pendulum
The basic way to make a pendulum work is to pinch the top of the chain between your thumb and forefinger. Use your dominant (projective) hand— basically, the hand you write with. Allow the weight to hang freely. Sometimes if you're trying to 'read' something, such as energy, you may have more success if you switch the pendulum to your 'receptive' hand (non-dominant hand).
Stabilize your elbow by resting it on a table. Give the pendulum a little tap to set it in motion. Make sure when it’s swinging there is nothing in its way and no friction from the pivot point (the point just beyond your fingers, where the movement begins).
At that point you would focus on your questions, and the direction the pendulum swings would give you answers. Usually the answers would be a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’. You could also put a map or a chart on the table beneath the pentacle to get more specific answers.
It's also a good idea for an extended reading to use a recorder so you will remember all the information that was given. Just describe what the pendulum is doing or the answers you are getting from it.
