Working with Pendulums

We hold within ourselves the ability to tap into all memory, ours and others, for all time—past, present, and future. We are all we need to know. It is the reason pendulums can be used to accurately answer questions.


Pendulums have been used for many reasons, including timekeeping, locating disease in the body, and dowsing. Employing a pendulum to answer questions, I.e., using a pendulum for divination, is considered one way to help the mind cross from logical to intuitive.

Our bodies are in tune with all knowledge, especially knowledge about ourselves. This knowledge is timeless and can be tapped into for guidance and insight. One way we project this information is through subtle, subconscious movement of our hands and fingers. These revealing gestures explain why graphology is so accurate. The same subconscious movements are projected by a pendulum when we are holding it.

Although many sources suggest quartz pendulums work best, in my experience pendulums can be as simple or as elaborate as you would like. How they look and what they are made of is immaterial. What is important is that they are balanced and are light enough to be held with one hand. There are different ways to use a pendulum. You can suspend it over a piece of paper labeled with responses or hold it over the palm of your hand, which is the method I prefer.



  1. Hold the pendulum with one hand and suspend it over the palm of your other hand.
  2. Ask the pendulum to show what “yes” looks like. Watch how the pendulum swings. It may move left and right, up and down, spin clockwise, or spin counterclockwise. Whatever motion it makes, take note what movement represents “yes.”
  3. Repeat step 2 to learn what movements represent “no” and “uncertain.” Note: An uncertain response occurs when you do not need to know the answer, you have doubts about the use of a pendulum, are unclear with your questions, or there are choices you have yet to make that will affect the outcome.
  4. Once the movements are determined, ask a question. Questions need to be phrased in such a way they can be answered with a yes, no, or uncertain. Be patient in getting a response. Sometimes the movements are very subtle and hard to detect.

As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t like to pass on using something unless I have done so myself. Although it has not always worked as well as I’d like, I have to admit it has been accurate far more often than not. Nevertheless, the effectiveness of a pendulum is directly related to your belief in whether or not it can work.
