Most often pendulums are used as tools for healing and inner growth. Pendulums are objects attached at the end of a string or mental chain. When suspended from a stationary position the pendulum will swing back and forth or in a circular motion.
A pendulum is a symmetrical, weighted object that is normally hung from a single chain or cord. Often pendulums are made from a type of crystal or a favorite item, bead, metal ball or key. This is a simple took that allows the user to tap into their intuitive powers. The pendulum is a receiver and transmitter of information - it moves in different ways to answer questions.
What Pendulum Dowsing Can Be Used For
Dowsing can be used in different ways - the easiest is to as simple yes or no questions which can aid in decision making.
Another Use for Pendulums is for Healing
Pendulums can detect energetic blockages within your auric field and chakras. Health is best achieved when focusing on the entirety of the mind, body, and spirit.
I have often had a family member lay down while I hold a pendulum over each chakra center and see the way the pendulum turns. If it is turning counter clockwise I know that there is an energy block and will clear the chakra until the pendulum turns clockwise.
There are so many different types of pendulums to chose from - find what feels right for you.
