- Hold the pendulum in your dominant hand, grasping the end of the chain and allowing the crystal to hang loose above a table.
- 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.
What is a pendulum and how does it work?
A pendulum is an object hung from a fixed point that swings back and forth under the action of gravity. In the example of the playground swing, the swing is supported by chains that are attached to fixed points at the top of the swing set.
How do you use a pendulum for answers?
When the pendulum swings, look at it – observe its direction. This is your answer. If it doesn’t move right away, give it time, or if it’s unclear what the signal is, try rephrasing the question and do it again. When the pendulum swings with great force, it’s answering loudly.
What is yes and no when using a pendulum?
Once you have success in getting the pendulum to swing in one direction like clockwise for yes, then counterclockwise for no, it might confuse you if sometimes it then swings back and forth in response to certain questions or statements. Don’t panic.
