How To Work With Crystal Pendulums

A pendulum is a symmetrical, weighted object that is hung from a single chain or cord. It’s never made of a magnetic substance, but is often a crystal. The pendulum is a very simple tool and one that lets the user tune in to their intuition. The pendulum acts as a receiver and transmitter of information, and moves in different ways in response to questions.

Pendulums are a great tool for connecting with your intuition, energy, and the cosmos. It has the ability to provide solutions to questions that our inner self already understands but that our intellect has not yet had the opportunity to comprehend.

So, will you dare to believe in your own inner power and follow the pendulum's lead?


We often have the answer to the questions we ask ourselves and the pendulum helps us to recognize those answers with guidance from the energy in our body. For yes / no questions, it is a great tool to pick out during your rituals and practices. Pendulum dowsing can be used in a variety of different ways. In its most simple form, you can use it to answer questions or aid in decision making. 


The main criteria is that you need to start with an open mind and put any doubts to one side. Take 2-3 deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth to slow down and connect with your inner-self, your intuition.

Place your elbow on a table so that your arm and hand are kept still and stable. Hold your crystal pendulum between your thumb and forefinger, take out your Selenite, place it right underneath it, to cleanse the pendulum. Visualize the white light energy of Selenite purifying your pendulum and wait until the pendulum is completely still.

Ask your pendulum out loud or in your mind, the following question "show me a 'yes' response to your swing" so you can find out how your pendulum is moving to yes / no. It can move back and forth, in a circle or sideways. Everyone's pendulums move differently, this has to do with your own energy. Pause for a while, then try the same again asking for the pendulum to show you a NO response. Don’t worry if you can’t tell much difference from the yes and no responses yet – this is perfectly normal at first and you should get to be able to tell the difference with the more practice you get.

Hold it in your hand and set an intention or ask a question. Try to be as clear as possible and remember that yes / no questions apply. Let the pendulum guide you to your answer and trust your inner power, it is more powerful than you think!

Pendants come in lots of different crystal materials and shapes, this does not affect the properties of the pendulums, so trust yourself and pick the one that resonates with you the most.
