What fingers do you hold a pendulum with?
To hold the pendulum, hold the chain with the thumb, index, and middle finger. This way, you are holding the pendulum with a balance of charges: neutral, negative, and positive. You can verify the charge on the fingertips by using your pendulum. It will swing in one direction for positive and another for negative.
How do you know if a pendulum is saying yes or no?
Steps for Using a Pendulum
When the pendulum is still, ask the question “What is yes?” The pendulum will begin to move, and this indicates what the answer “Yes” looks like. It may begin to swing clockwise or counterclockwise, or it may move from side to side or back and forth.
How do pendulums work?
When the swing is raised and released, it will move freely back and forth due to the force of gravity on it. The swing continues moving back and forth without any extra outside help until friction (between the air and the swing and between the chains and the attachment points) slows it down and eventually stops it.
