One of the most common and easiest to use magical divination tools might already be available in your toolkit, or perhaps your jewelry box. The pendulum is simply a weighted object attached to a chain or piece of string. Pendulums can be purchased, or made by hand. For best results, choose an object with a bit of weight.
This type of magic is a dowsing spell. It will work best when your mind is at ease, since it is channeled through your subconscious.
In order to achieve the results you want, you will first need to practice with your new pendulum. Hold its cord between the thumb and forefinger of your dominant hand, and concentrate. In order to “calibrate,” ask your pendulum to give a motion that means “yes.” It may move back and forth, sideways, or in a small circle. You may need to experiment to find the signals that work best for you. Repeat the same process for “no” and, if you wish, “I don’t know.”
Peasants have believed in dowsing, and scientists used to believe that dowsing was only a belief of peasants. Now there are so many scientists who believe in dowsing that the suspicion comes to me that it may only be a myth after all ~ Charles Fort
Once you feel comfortable, try asking some “yes” or “no” questions. Remember to keep it simple. You might even want to start, as on a polygraph test, with questions you already know: “Is my name Susie?” “Do I work as a teacher?”, and so forth. If you ask something complex like “Where should I go on vacation this year?” you might not get an answer.
However, there is another way to use a pendulum. If, for example, you are thinking about moving or looking for a lost item, you might want to try holding your pendulum over a map of the area in question.
Pendulums can also be used, like dowsing rods, to look for desired items. If you are looking for water, or gemstones, consider placing a small essence of what you seek inside your pendulum. The materials themselves are also of significance.
Crystals and stones are popular as pendulums; if you do pick one, try to match up your intent with the color and type of your crystal. For example, pink stones for love questions, clear stones for dream magic, and so on. Metals are also widely used, just be sure to choose one which is not a conductor, since electrical charges can interfere with pendulums.
I know very well that many scientists consider dowsing as they do astrology, as a type of ancient superstition. According to my conviction this is unjustified. The dowsing rod is a simple instrument which shows the uncanny reaction of the human nervous system to certain factors which are unknown to us at this time ~ Albert Einstein
The most important thing to remember, as you begin your pendulum work, is to be honest. When you are asking questions, keep your intent pure and remember that, as with any magical work, you are dealing with the spiritual realm. Never be impolite or flippant. Asking questions as a joke might be tempting, but the spiritual beings are giving you their time. Don’t waste theirs!
Approach your pendulum with an open mind. Many might see it as too simple a divination tool, but often simplicity is best. It is a versatile channel which can open doors for you. Throughout history it has been used to find lost children, discover valuable treasures, and reunite lovers. Make it work for you. As with any magical work, stay positive and believe in the value of what you are doing, and you will see results.
