How to use a Crystal Pendulum

A crystal pendulum is a tool used for divination and dowsing, which involves using a pendulum to communicate with the unconscious mind or the spiritual realm. Crystal pendulums are believed to have different energetic properties that can enhance the accuracy and effectiveness of the dowsing process. Here is a blog on how to use a crystal pendulum:

  • Choose a crystal pendulum that resonates with you. There are many different types of crystal pendulums available, each with its own unique properties. You can choose a crystal pendulum based on the properties you are looking for or based on your personal preference. It's important to choose a crystal pendulum that you feel a connection with and that resonates with your energy.

  • Cleanse and charge your crystal pendulum. Before using your crystal pendulum, it's important to cleanse and charge it to remove any negative energies and enhance its energetic properties. You can cleanse your crystal pendulum by smudging it with sage, placing it in a bed of salt, burying it in the earth, or using other cleansing methods. You can charge your crystal pendulum by placing it in sunlight, moonlight, or near a crystal grid.

  • Set your intention. Before using your crystal pendulum, it's important to set your intention and focus your energy on what you want to communicate or ask. You can do this by holding the crystal pendulum in your dominant hand and stating your intention out loud or silently to yourself. You can also hold the crystal pendulum while meditating or focusing on your intention. This helps to align your energy with the crystal pendulum and allows you to communicate more effectively.

  • Ask a question or make a statement. Once you have set your intention, you can ask a question or make a statement using your crystal pendulum. You can ask yes or no questions, or you can ask the pendulum to show you a specific answer or direction. You can also ask the pendulum to show you the energy of a person, place, or situation. Be specific and clear in your communication and be open to receiving the answer or guidance that comes through the pendulum.

  • Observe the movement of the pendulum. The movement of the crystal pendulum will vary based on the answer or guidance being received. A clockwise movement may indicate a positive response or energy, while a counterclockwise movement may indicate a negative response or energy. A back and forth movement may indicate a neutral response or energy. It's important to pay attention to the movement of the pendulum and not to make assumptions about the answer based on your own bias or expectations.

  • Interpret the response. Once you have received a response from the crystal pendulum, it's important to interpret the meaning based on the context of your question or statement. The response may not always be clear or straightforward, and it's important to trust your intuition and inner guidance when interpreting the meaning. You can also ask for clarification or additional guidance if needed.

  • End the session. When you are finished using your crystal pendulum, it's important to close the session and thank the pendulum and any spirit guides or higher powers that may have assisted in the process. You can do this by stating your intention to end the session and thanking the pendulum and any helpers. You can also cleanse and charge your crystal pendulum again to remove any residual energies and prepare it for future use.  

Using a crystal pendulum can be a powerful and informative tool for divination and dowsing. It's important to approach the process with an open mind and a clear intention, and to trust and interpret the responses you receive. It's also important to use your crystal pendulum responsibly and ethically, and to respect any guidance or messages that you receive. With practice and patience, you can learn to use your crystal pendulum effectively and enhance your spiritual growth and understanding.

    This is my favorite of your posts because i have found it somewhat difficult to find detailed information about using pendulums. A friend of mine had a very negative experience using her pendulum for the first time – she actually vomited – and seeing as i haven’t used a pendulum before i was trying my best to help her figure out what could have gone wrong or what steps she may have missed. This was really helpful as i realize she may not have cleansed her pendulum of negative energies it may have come in contact with previously. Thanks!
