Crystal pendulums can be used as a tool to read energies, connect with your subconscious mind and allow you to find answers to questions when you are stuck and cannot navigate your own thoughts. Simply put, a pendulum reacts to the minute nerve reactions in your fingers that are generated by your unconscious mind in response to a question poised. So instead of trying to decide and become stressed over the process, let your unconscious mind guide you and disconnect from overthinking and external input to navigate the questions you might have.
Pendulums are very personal and people often form very strong connections to particular pendulums. It is important to trust your instincts when choosing a pendulum. Go with a pendulum that feels right, that you are drawn to. Some people have a particular association with certain crystals such as Clear Quart or Amethyst.
Sit or stand comfortably, be calm and relaxed. Hold the pendulum by the end of the chain with the weighted drop hanging down towards the ground. Focus your mind on keeping the pendulum still and balanced. Ask yourself ‘yes’ and ‘no’ questions; questions you know the answers to be yes and no. The pendulum with move, note these movements for each question and use these subtle movements as your guide. Remember your questions need to be those that are answered with a yes or no.
