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. It’s also possible to use objects such as a favourite trinket, a bead, a metal ball or even a key. The pendulum is a very simple tool and one that lets the user tune in to their intuitive powers. The pendulum acts as a receiver and transmitter of information, and moves in different ways in response to questions.
WHAT IS PENDULUM DOWSING USED FOR?
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. Pendulums can also be used for:
Healing purposes and identifying allergies.
To cleanse and dispel negativity in a room.
To help you find lost objects or pets.
To find water or ley lines (dowsing rods are often used for this too, which work in a similar way to a pendulum).
Select the most appropriate food, beverage, supplement, remedy, drug, or treatment
Choose the healthiest products in the supermarket
Find your missing keys (or anything else you’ve lost)
Check your car over for problems
Locate a missing pet
Get in the quickest line at a checkout
Improve your garden

and so much more!
It can also be used to answer any question asked in a Yes/No format, to rate anything on a scale of your choosing (1 to 5, 1 to 100, etc.), to measure the energy of any organ in the body, the boundary of your energy field, your percentage of physical health, whether or not you should join with your buddy and open a new business, what color to paint your living room, what movie to attend — there is no limit to what you can ask about!
A pendulum can also be used to direct energy to another person or location. For example, you can shift or send an essence or other healing energy to a friend or client across town or across the world. This is beyond the ‘basics’, and it gives you an example of the many possible uses of dowsing.
HOW DOES PENDULUM DOWSING WORK?
A pendulum works by tapping into your intuition and sixth sense. The pendulum acts as a form of receiver and transmitter, from your higher guidance, guardian angels and spiritual teachers. As the pendulum moves, you gain answers in response to questions – it is best suited to use to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions. Some people describe the way a pendulum works as being like bringing together the rational and intuitive sides of you (the left and right sides of your brain). When these two elements are brought together, you’re able to make decisions using all the sources, rather than just one of them.
For it to work perfectly, you need to tune into your energies in a very focused manner and ensure that there is nothing in your surrounding that could cause disruption. You only need to focus on yourself and your energy and set your mind free. This way, you can gain insight into a lot of guidance to gain information that you can’t get from anywhere else.
Now that you have the answer to the question “Do pendulums really work?”, you can start working on pendulum dowsing and learn the techniques to improve your life using spiritual guidance and assistance!
