Step one: Center yourself. You can do this by simply breathing with the intention of letting the stress out, or make it more of a ritual by lighting candles, putting on some zen music, or diffusing essential oils. Relax — the point here is to quiet your mind so you’ll be able to connect with your higher self more easily.
Step two: Connect to the pendulum. Sit with your pendulum. Find a comfortable place for you to sit and begin to relax as much and you can. Hold the pendulum in your hand. Take a look at it. Respect it. To connect even further I like to do this by holding the pendulum in a fist by my heart for just a few seconds or breaths.
Step three: Establish a connection and identify your “Yes” and “No.” You need to learn what your body’s “yes” and “no” responses are. To establish this quickly, hold the pendulum 6 – 8 inches above the palm of your hand. Begin to ask simple yes/no questions that you know the answers to and see what the responses are. I like to say “My name is…” Take note of what happens for each response.
Step four: Ask your questions. This is the easy part, but you must keep in mind that the pendulum can only answer simple yes/no questions. If you ask something that isn’t directly a yes or no, your answer won’t be clear.
And that’s it!
