What an opening title .... I guess my naughty side wanted to make an appearance this morning when writing this, which is epic, as 'she' has been buried for a little while.
I am referring to one of my favourite spiritual tools, the pendulum.
These, quite simply, are using a weighted object on a chain or string. You can make one or buy one, and use something that you love and are 'deeply' connected with if you perhaps want to give this this form of divination a serious go.
Used for centuries, in spirituality, I use mine to work with my intuition (basically an extension of it), so that you can 'see' a physical manifestation. It likes to be used to answer questions very simply (usually either a yes or a no) and it is for insight (I don't believe in fortune telling) for a potential outcome to a specifically 'worded' question.
I recently gifted myself the pendulum board that you can see in the picture, and although these are not essential, I find it can really help with my connection and flow. I will include the link to the seller of my board and a link to how to use a pendulum, at the end, for those of you who may be interested. If you would like me to create a video on using a pendulum, please let me know.
I have a bit of a pendulum collection building, with most of them involving crystals. Over the years I have owned some that I really connected with, but some that simply were not for me, so I gifted them on, or retired them.
I remember as a child, probably around the age of 5, as my family had just moved from Hong Kong back to Ireland into a big old house, using something that was on a string and trying to will it to move for me, but got so frustrated as it wouldn't move, even though I strongly felt that it should. I share this little story with you, because you can try too hard, or simply what you are using is not for you, or it or you needs spiritually cleansed.
Do you need to believe in 'something' (eg universe, god, etc) for it to work? No, I don't feel you do as it works with your subconscious and having a belief in yourself is all that is needed.... so why not give it a go?
I would love to hear your experiences
