8 Ways to Use Your Pendulum

Updated: Dec 8, 2023

1. Use a pendulum to cleanse your space

If you're looking to cleanse your space of negative energy, a pendulum can be a helpful tool. Simply hold the pendulum over each area of your home or office while allowing it to swing in a clockwise motion. As it does so, visualize the negative energy leaving your space.

2. Use a pendulum to choose which crystals or ritual supplies to work with

If you're not sure which crystals, herbs, incense, etc. to use for your spell work or meditation, you can always consult a pendulum. Simply hold the pendulum over each item, and see which one swings in a clockwise motion. This is the one that will best support your intention.

3. Use a pendulum to find lost objects

Misplaced something and can't seem to find it? Grab your pendulum! Hold the pendulum over the general area where you think the object may be, allowing it to swing. The direction it swings in will indicate whether or not the object is in that area, or which way you can go look. You can also hold the pendulum over a map while asking it to show you where the lost object is located.

4. Determining the sex of an unborn child

A popular use for pendulums is to find out the sex of an unborn child. To do this, you simply need to ask your question out loud, and then wait for the pendulum to give you an answer. You could use 2 objects to symbolize male and female, or to make this easier you could even make your own pendulum board by writing the words boy and girl on a piece of paper.

5. Communicating with spirits

Some people believe that pendulums can be used to communicate with spirits. To do this, you would need to ask the spirit yes or no questions, and then wait for the pendulum to give you an answer. Again you can use a pendulum board here. Make it by drawing a circle, then writing the words yes, no, maybe, and rephrase around the perimeter of the circle twice, making sure the pairs line up around the board.

6. Use it for Divination

A pendulum can also be used for divination, which is basically using it to get information about the future. This can be done by asking specific questions or by using a Pendulum Board, which is a board with different symbols on it that you can use to get information about different areas of your life. One of the simplest ways to use a pendulum for divination is to ask it questions that can be answered with a "yes" or "no." This can be helpful when you're trying to make a decision and want some guidance from the Universe. It's similar to the last one, but this time you are asking the Universe itself.

7. Use it to get an Energy Reading

Detect and measure energy fields with pendulum movements. Ask targeted questions about the energy field. Observe pendulum movements, noting clockwise for positive and counterclockwise for negative energy. Gauge intensity by asking for strong or subtle swings. Trust intuition to interpret results, developing a personal understanding over time.

8. Use it for energy clearing

Another way to use a pendulum is for energy clearing. This means using it to clear away any negative energy that might be surrounding you. You can do this by holding the pendulum over different parts of your body or by moving it around in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction throughout your space.
