How to use a Pendulum and Divination board.

A pendulum is a weight on a length of string or chain, it can be as pretty or as plain as you desire. (Some folks advise staying away from metal, but i’ve never had any issues.)

Now, I imagine we’ve all got that someone in our family who will have a go at guessing whether the baby will be a boy or girl, using a needle or wedding ring on a thread. (That person is me in our family, in case you were wondering 😉 )

Dowsing has been used to find water, coal and metal, at different points throughout IMG_7157history. It is also the method that we use when working with pendulums to divine for answers.

A pendulum works by linking into the energies and vibrations of people and things around you.  The pendulum then transmits answers, and shows you these answers by moving in different directions.

When using a divining board, (or Answers Board) you can get accurate results to yes and no,  days of the week, time frame and astrological sign questions. And lots more.

Sit with your pendulum and cleanse the energy – either by  leaving her out in a full moon, or by burying her overnight in salt. (Return the salt to the earth once you’ve done this.) Or with a tuning fork, or even, simply by clapping your hands.

It will take a few try’s if you’ve never used one before, but let your intuition guide you. Relax, and let the pendulum dangle above the board. Think or speak your question, and wait for the pendulum to start swinging.

IMG_7158You can even get help finding lost things; like keys for instance… (I’ve tried and tested this MANY times.)  Just tell your pendulum you’ve lost your car keys, and ask for help in which room they’re in. Go and stand in each room, and if the pendulum swings too and frow, they’re not there. When she swings in a cicrcle; let the search begin!

Boy or Girl?

And just in case you were wondering; use the wedding ring of the pregnant Mama, and thread it on a piece of cotton. You can hold it above her tummy, if she’s comfortable with that, but above her open palm will work just as well. If the ring swings too and frow, it’s a boy, and in a circle is a girl.

You can change out a needle for the ring, and some use a strand of hair instead of cotton. It’s an old folklore tradition that’s been around for centuries, and is lots of fun at baby shower’s and pregnancy announcements.

Bright Blessings All,

    • Hey, I’m always looking to meet people who are ‘other.’ (Because don’t we all have ‘other’ within us.) I use my pendulum to check for health issues and blockages, do you use a particular crystal/metal or wood in your practice? Jo )0(


      • Hi! I t would be easier to read my post, ‘Nebular & Galaxies fuel imagination’s inspirational art-forms, and all we are & strive to be’…where I’ve written all about my pendulums. I’m still working at perfecting i t Jo.
