These are Patel’s pro-approved tips for actually using it.
- Cleanse: As with crystals, pendulums need cleansing too.
- Prep your questions: Patel recommends having multiple questions to ask.
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.
Why do pendulums stop working?
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.
Can you wear a pendulum as a necklace?
Can you Wear a Pendulum as a Necklace? The easiest answer is yes, necklaces often make great pendulums, so it makes sense that you might want to use one like a pendulum and also wear it as a pendant. By wearing it, you may feel a closer connection to your pendulum.
