How to hold a pendulum
For best results you should ensure that only you touch and use your pendulum. Pendulum Dowsing is one of the most effective ways to tap into and develop your intuition and has a variety of uses for everyone. It is surprisingly simple to do but takes a little practice.
The pendulum cord should be held lightly between the thumb and forefinger of whichever hand you use. Make sure that the wrist of the hand holding the pendulum points downwards.
How to determine your ‘Yes’ and ‘No’
The first thing to find out before trying to use a pendulum is which way it swings for ‘yes’ and ‘no’ as this varies between people. You can do this by asking of it a question you already know the answer to. To determine which is your ‘yes’ direction, ask the pendulum a question which you consciously know requires a ‘yes’ answer. It will swing one of four ways: clockwise, anticlockwise, side-to-side or backwards and forwards. This will depend entirely upon each individual. When you have found your ‘yes’ direction, ask the pendulum a question which you know requires a ‘no’ answer. The pendulum will then swing in an entirely different direction indicating your individual ‘no’ answer. Swinging back and forth in a straight line can mean ‘do not know’ or dubious.
Never influence the pendulum to your own advantage – at all times stand by the TRUTH.
It takes practice
With practice you will be able to discover many things and begin to tap the forces of intuition and develop your psychic potential. However, it should always be remembered that the pendulum is a metaphysical experiment and you should not let it rule your life.
An example of how you can use the pendulum
The pendulum can help you determine which foods are good for your body. For example you can hold the pendulum over a Vitamin B tablet and ask “Is this good for me?” to which you will get an answer. But to be more specific you could ask “Does my body need this now?” which may give you a different answer.

In order to begin to learn the art of Pendulum Dowsing you will need a Pendulum. You can purchase a beautiful Pendulum at a metaphysical store or you can make one yourself. Actually, a pendant on a necklace chain makes a fine Pendulum. It’s a good idea to make sure that the pendant has a little weight to it. If it is too light you will not be able to experience the energy readings as easily.
Simply hold your Pendulum with one hand and allow it to dangle straight. By doing some deep breathing for a minute or so you will prepare yourself to begin your Pendulum reading.
You may find that your Pendulum may actually already be moving by itself. Begin by asking silently “which way means yes?” Your Pendulum may begin to rotate or begin to move back and forth or from side to side. Observe what direction your Pendulum moves in when asked “which way means yes?”
Next, mentally say “thank you” and allow the Pendulum to come to a rest. Now, silently ask “which way means no?” Observe what pattern of movement your Pendulum makes when asked “which way means no?” Again mentally say “thank you” and allow your Pendulum to come to a rest.
It is best to remain open-minded and relaxed when attempting Pendulum dowsing.
Now, begin to ask the series of questions listed below, each time after receiving the answer, mentally say “thank you” and allow your Pendulum to return to a neutral state before proceeding to the next question.
1.) Ask the Pendulum the following questions: Is today Monday? Is today Tuesday? Continue to ask the Pendulum about all of the different days of the week. You want to experience what happens and how the Pendulum responds when the answer is “yes” as opposed to when the answer is “no”.
Since you already know which day of the week it is, it will be easy for you to observe the accuracy of your Pendulum reading.
2.) If you have a dog or a cat, hold the Pendulum over the head of your pet and observe what your Pendulum does.
3.) Hold your Pendulum over a healthy green plant and observe what occurs.
4.) Hold your Pendulum over a dead plant and observe what happens.
5.) Hold your Pendulum over a healthy food, like fresh fruit, for example, and ask “Is this food beneficial to my health?”, and observe what happens.
6.) Hold the Pendulum over a non-healthy food and ask the same question.
Experiment with your Pendulum. Remember that it is vital that you phrase your questions so that the answer will be either yes or no.
