Having endured and lived through many different situations and experiences, our bodies are a lot of wiser than we know and give credit for, and pendulums are a valuable medium through which we can connect to this inner wisdom and energy, seek guidance and attain answers to all sorts of personal life questions – both small and significant.

There are so many advantages to being able to use a pendulum effectively, and it is well worth your while to take the time and trouble to learn this skill, discover its rewards and practice daily until you have mastered it.

Brief Historical Use of the Pendulum

Pendulums have been used by Healers throughout the ages, often to diagnose diseases, find the weakest organs and check what medicines may be used to heal that particular disease. Fortune Tellers have also used pendulums in their businesses to predict the future as well as name the day and time an event may occur – often with outstanding success.

As with any tool, it is important who is using it as the tool is only as good as the user.

Years ago, when baby showers were a more simplified affair than they are now, bridesmaids would have arranged a light afternoon tea of sandwiches and cakes served with tea or coffee (no alcohol). They would have planned a series of games to entertain the women invited, and one of the most important games of the afternoon was the guests using a pendulum to try to predict the sex of the baby.

The guests would take a pendulum on a chain and hold it above the “baby bump”, ask the desired question and wait for the pendulum to swing clockwise or anti-clockwise to indicate whether it was a boy or girl. All the answers would be noted and kept for confirmation after the birth.

The use of pendulums was often linked to Witchcraft around the “Dark Ages” with no real understanding of how the answers were gained. In later years, many scientists were known to use pendulums to gain answers of a scientific nature, and these have also been used in mines in Germany, as far back as Queen Victoria’s reign, to regulate safe routes through rock.

Connecting with Your Inner Wisdom

Today, many are still surprised with the pendulum’s accuracy and ability to guide and direct them through various decisions and life paths.

How you choose to engage with your pendulum can be divinatory, purely corporeal or both, as these all provide a means to connect with, and tap into, your past and present inner wisdom, where you can receive advice, self-discovery and often rewarding responses that may bring new benefits to your life.

Questions to ask when using your pendulum can range from simple dietary and supplementary choices to relationship and career advice, in addition to making both everyday and substantial purchases, and even whether to decide to go to a certain event or not. Of course, this is most effective when asking questions phrased to return a binary “yes” or “no” answer.

The rudiments of this skill involve grounding yourself in a comfortable space, connecting with your pendulum (naturally assigning answers to the direction of its swings) and freely allowing its movement to provide you with guidance and answers.

Pendulum Predictions

Having run Naturopathic Clinics for 30 years, I have seen so many patients come in with boxes of supplements that may be valued at anywhere up to $500 – supplements that often were a waste of money as they did not address any of the patient’s current problems. Often, in fact, the supplements would negate each other, and in other people may set up various allergic reactions. 

Taking the time to use a pendulum, and master its potential, would have saved their money, and provided the necessary guidance in choosing the right vitamins and minerals that would improve their immune system and protect their overall health.
