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.
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.
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.
