One of the most commonly used tools for divination and dowsing is a pendulum. The art of using a pendulum is something that anyone can learn and master, and enjoy experimenting with.
What Is a Pendulum? A pendulum is a symmetrical, weighted object that is hung from a single chain or cord. It’s never made of a magnetic substance, but is often a crystal. It’s also possible to use objects such as a favorite trinket, a bead, a metal ball or even a key. The pendulum is a very simple tool and one that lets the user tune in to their intuitive powers. The pendulum acts as a receiver and transmitter of information, and moves in different ways in response to questions.
What Is Pendulum Dowsing Used For? Pendulum dowsing can be used in a variety of different ways. In its most simple form, you can use it to answer questions or aid in decision making. Pendulums can also be used for:
Healing purposes and identifying allergies.
To cleanse and dispel negativity in a room.
To help you find lost objects or pets.
To find water or water lines (dowsing rods are often used for this too, which work in a similar way to a pendulum).
