Pendulum Basics

The use of a pendulum sparked my personal Kindred Journey. The pendulum enabled me to identify and cultivate relationships with my Spirit Guides. It is a trusted tool for communicating with higher frequency beings. Until you have developed clairaudience, or clairvoyance, the use of a pendulum may be the main tool used to receive clear messages and answers.

Choosing A Pendulum

There are many varied types of pendulums available.  The most important aspect of choosing a pendulum is selecting the pendulum that speaks to one's soul. Use intuition to decipher which type to use. The right pendulum will make itself known. If the eyes continue to return to the same pendulum again and again, then this is the right pendulum. Whether the pendulum chosen is metal or crystal is a point worth considering. The possibilities and combinations are endless. Many persons choose metal pendulums for the energy conductivity of the metal. Some choose crystal pendulums for the specific attributes of the crystal. Have confidence in knowing that the pendulum chosen is the right one and was always meant for this use in these hands. Also remember that your Spirit Guides are eager to communicate with you and they will use any and all tools available to do so. 

Before Receiving Messages

It is recommended that the vibration is raised before communications with energy beings. This can be done by opening and balancing ones Chakras and then visualizing the white light of source energy, entering through the crown Chakra and enveloping and permeating ones body. As the source light saturates all of the cells in ones body, it can then emanate and expand outwards releasing all fear along it's path. An intention can be made to open communication with Spirit Guides only. The high vibration will repel all lower vibrational entities from interfering in any communications. Smudging can also be used to clear a room of lower density entities as well as to raise the vibration. High vibrational crystals can be utilized as well. 

How To Use A Pendulum

When using a pendulum hold the chain of the pendulum several inches above where it meets the pendulum bobble using your thumb and index finger. Use whichever hand is most comfortable. The wrist muscles should be slack and the elbow supported. Center the point of the pendulum either in the center of your palm, if using your palm, or in the center of the pendulum chart if using a chart. There are other methods for using a pendulum but for the purpose of this article we will focus on this method. Questions may now be asked. These questions can be asked either aloud or silently. Spirit Guides can hear and understand your thoughts. Often during pendulum communications, the muscles of ones hands, wrist, and sometimes arms may move involuntarily. These muscle movements are Spirit Guides using the workings of the human body to produce answers.

Using Your Palm

This is a method that can be used anywhere! This is a perfect method for a quick yes or no answer. Hold one palm flat up towards the sky. Starting from the center of the palm, establish which direction is a yes for your Spirit guides. Do this by simply saying either in ones mind or out loud, "show me yes". The pendulum will then swing in a direction towards one finger. Take note of toward which finger the pendulum swings. After the "yes" swing has been noted, ask the Spirit Guides to center the pendulum to start again by saying either silently or aloud "center please". The pendulum should then center on the palm again and cease moving. Repeat this process for finding the direction for a "No" swing.

If the pendulum doesn't swing enough to make out a direction, simply ask the Spirit Guides to produce a bigger swing so that the answers are clear. Simply say "big swing please". This may take practice and time for the Spirit Guides to understand the type of communication that is being sought. It takes work to train both oneself and ones Spirit Guides in using this as a communication tool. If the swing directions of the "yes" and "no" are close together and not easily defined, the direction may be set by the pendulum user. Simply tell the Spirit Guides which finger has been designated a "yes" and which is a "no". Then ask the Spirit Guides to "show me a yes" and then "show me a no". This may need to be practiced until the user and ones Guides are in sync. For an example, my Spirit Guides and I use the direction from the center of my left palm towards my index finger as a "yes" and from the center of my palm to my thumb as a "no" answer. 

Once the "Yes" and "No" has been firmly established, the questions can begin. It's amazing how many questions can be answered by a simple yes or no. If the pendulum does not move from the center of the palm, try rewording or rephrasing the question to be more specific. Sometimes this will have to be done several times until the intent of the question is clear. Be clear in your mind of the specifics of the question before asking for an answer. 

Using A Chart

Use a pendulum chart to get more detailed answers than simple "yeses" and "noes". Using a pendulum chart is a great way to get direct messages from ones Spirit guides. Words, sentences, or even paragraphs of written information can be received this way. A first step in communication may be to identify ones Spirit Guides, their "names" and their roles you in this incarnation. It is possible to have a Spirit Guide to correspond with each aspect of your life. Through this method, you may be able to identify Guides for health, business/finances, relationships, spiritual enlightenment, and messenger Guides to name just a few. 

A pendulum chart can be purchased for use or one can be made. Here is one technique for making a pendulum chart that works:

 Use the english alphabet A-Z to receive answers. Start by drawing a half circle on an unlined piece of paper. Then find the bottom center of the circle along the flat side. The arch of the circle is facing away from the user. Then the half circle is divided into twenty nine sections all meeting at the designated bottom center of the circle. The alphabet is written in the top of the individual sections from left to right. In the remaining three sections, Write an underscore "_" for a "space" option, a number sign "#" for numbers, and an arrow pointing to the left for a "back" section. This is one system but you may find your own system that works better for you and your Guides.

Hold the pendulum in the center position and ask one question at a time. As the pendulum swings towards a letter, write it down. If it is unclear as to which letter the pendulum swings towards, select the letters that appear to be in the correct area. Then ask in turn if this was the letter your guides were selecting for your answer. It might be faster to then use the palm for "yeses" and "noes" to quickly ascertain which letter is the correct choice. Familiarize the Spirit Guides with useing the underscore "_" or "space" section in between words or to signify the end of a thought or sentence. One space is the end of a word and two spaces are the end of a thought or sentence. Even while using this method, there are times when a letter is selected mistakenly. When this happens, familiarize your Spirit Guides with using the "back" section or the left facing arrow. This technique involves selecting the "back" section once to reevaluate the last letter chosen. The "back" section is selected twice consecutively to then go back and restart the entire word. This process can be tedious but with practice it gets much easier. 

Draw another smaller chart of numbers zero through nine with a "_" or "space", a "back" or left facing arrow, and an "ABC" section. There should be thirteen sections total on this chart. This can be dawn on a separate piece of paper or on the back of the larger "A-Z" chart. The sections are as explained above. The "ABC" section is to signify a board change back to the A-Z board similarly as the "#" space signifies a change to the number board from the A-Z chart. 

My Spirit Guides Speak Gibberish

This may happen quite often while first incorporating pendulum communications.  You may begin by receiving messages that include never ending x's, q's, z's and the like, spelling out nonsensical words that no google search can define meaning for. Think of this as a "practice" for the Spirit Guides. This may also mean that "rules of communication" may need to be set with the Spirit Guides. In the spirit realm, our Guides do not communicate with words. We must acquaint them with our desire for them to form words in our chosen language of communication. One might also need to establish the use of the "_" or "space" section in between words. When establishing "rules" of communication with Spirit Guides, it is important to speak to Guides respectfully but also to be completely clear as to ones needs during communications. This will greatly aid the process and allow clear answers and messages to come through with less effort.

What To Ask First

Consider first asking an open question. Ask if there is an important message for you. This question can be asked often or if there has been some time between communications. The answer can be a "yes" or "no". If the answer is "yes", then ask if this message can be received via the "A-Z" chart. If the answer is "yes" again, move to the chart. This is a great way to receive important messages that your Spirit Guides have for you now. It may be a good practice to start all communications in this way so as to understand important messages first. If there is an important message to be received, the Spirit Guides may not answer your questions clearly until this important message has been expressed. The Spirit Guides might set aside all questions until this important message is received and understood. 

Follow up Questions

After receiving an answer, ask which Guide is giving this message. This allows one to put the answer or message into proper context. For instance, if the message comes through to "clear out old", it would have a very different meaning coming from a health Guide as opposed to a business/finance Guide.  If a message is unclear, it may be necessary to ask further follow up questions. Continue to ask for clarification on a word or message until it makes sense. If there is still confusion, it may need to be set aside for the moment and readdressed at a later date or time.

They want you to make the most of this incarnation and to live up to your full potential and find your true life path. Your Guides will do everything they can to help you to attain these goals.

About Spirit Guide Messages

Spirit Guides cannot for tell the future. This statement is not completely true and must be explained.  This concept can take some time to understand fully. Spirit Guides exist on a different plane than we do. Time does not exist for them in the way it does for us. They indeed can see the future of our lifetime, but they see many futures. Meaning that for each decision that we make, exercising our free will, the possibilities for the future change. There is an infinite number of possible futures for us. Every decision that we make, brings us closer to A future. Spirit Guides can calculate which future is the most likely, and they can do their best to Guide towards a future of fulfillment, but ultimately, the choice is ours. The direction of ones life can be changed at any time. Due to this, answers may be received that do not now, nor never will make sense. This could be because an answer is for a possible future that may never be experienced. When receiving Spirit Guide messages, this is a vital aspect to understand. One could get discouraged if this concept is not understood fully.
