We came into this world with a deep sense of who we are and why we are here. Over the years, layer upon layer of social mores–the “shoulds” of our lives–have covered up that ancient wisdom. That knowing is not gone, however. We can still connect with it…if we have the right tools. In earlier blogs, I’ve mentioned meditation, mindfulness, grounding and expressing gratitude as a few of them. Another one is using a pendulum for guidance. A pendulum is simply a crystal that is attached to a string or a chain. You can find a pendulum in a rock, book or gift shop or any place that draws you to find it. When looking at an assortment of pendulums, you will be captivated by one of them. That’s the one you should buy. You can also make your own at home. According to Richard Webster, author of Pendulum Magic for Beginners, “the pendulum should weigh about 3 ounces and be round in shape, with a point at the bottom… with just a few minutes of practice, anyone can use it.” You can ask the pendulum questions and it will read your energy and provide an answer for you by the way it moves. It simply helps interpret your unconscious thoughts and brings them forward to you, so that you can become aware of the answer–that inner knowing. As with any tool, practice makes perfect. As you learn to use more tools, you will find that your world expands exponentially and more tools will show up for you. That’s the Law of Attraction at work, once again.
