4 Tips for Using PendulumsAn Incredibly Helpful Tool For Energy Healing
If you are on your way to joining the pantheon of light workers, you already know how important it is to keep your personal energy field free of negativity. You probably have a spiritual routine that may include daily meditation, expressing your emotions through journaling, connecting to Mother Earth, and attending healing courses or workshops—all practices I definitely encourage! But even with all that commendable personal work, it’s likely that there is still at least one of your chakras that is not functioning optimally. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s true! In my experience as an energy healer and spiritual teacher, I find that it takes many years of deep personal work to get completely clear, but it can be done! First, you have to find the negative energy lurking in your chakras so you can release it and make room for positive energy to take its place.
Finding and identifying the blockages or imbalances in your chakras is the first step to being able to treat them, and this is where pendulums can prove to be incredibly helpful tools for energy healing. You can use a pendulum on a partner to check their chakras with their pen
In my Hay House LifeForce Energy Healing Online Course, I give detailed instructions for how to perform this chakra-testing with a buddy, but the basic procedure is to hold the pendulum over each chakra and observe its movements. A free and clear chakra will spin gently in the right direction, which should be reflected in the movement of the pendulum.dulum, and then reverse the process so they are checking your chakras with your pendulum. Like any skill, patience and practice are key components to success with a pendulum, but here are four additional tips to start you off on the right foot.
1. Choose the right type of pendulum.
Technically, a pendulum can be any weighted object that is attached to a cord or string and can freely swing in all directions when held from a fixed point. But for examining energy flow through chakras, I highly recommend a conical-shaped pendulum made of beech wood. Choose wood, rather than metal, stone, or crystal, because it is safer. Crystal pendulums can actually cut a chakra, and you really don’t want that!
2. Let the pendulum absorb your energy.
When you receive your pendulum, keep it close to you, preferably on your person, for several days before using it. Carry it around in your pocket during the day and sleep near it at night, and feel free to handle it if you’d like. This will allow the pendulum to soa
3. Bless your pendulum before each use.k up your specific energy. You have your own energy signature, and since the pendulum works by amplifying energy, the better attuned to your unique vibrations it is, the better and more accurate your results.
Every aspect of energy healing comes from Source, from the universal field, and acknowledging that before attempting readings is a good way to stay humble and keep ego—a roadblock to energy healing—in check. Then, bless your pendulum by communicating with your spirit guides, angels, and higher self to request that they help the pendulum’s movements stay true. How the pendulum moves will illuminate the state of each chakra, so you want to ensure that there is some guidance from beyond the physical plane. Remain open to their assistance and available to their influence.
4. Test your pendulum before reading chakras.
Before you attempt to use your pendulum to check chakras, try a test run. Hold the cord and let the pendulum hang down, keeping your arm and hand still. Ask a question to which you know the answer is “yes.” Watch for which way the pendulum moves—this is your pendulum’s signal for yes. Repeat the process with a question to which you know the answer is “no.” This test run will give you a baseline for yes and no responses that you can then use to ask questions that you do not consciously know the answer to, but your unconscious does. It’s like a magic eight ball that’s tuned in to a deeper part of you, and will make the results of your chakra test stronger.
With these tips, you can maximize your use of this simple yet powerful spiritual tool. With more and more practice, you will become better at interpreting the pendulum’s messages while increasing your intuition until eventually, you may not need the pendulum at all to read chakras. In my work as an energy healer, I sense imbalances and blocks in your energy field with just intention. A pendulum is a necessary step to reaching that level of energy healing.
