An Amethyst Pendulum benefits from crystal energy. While a simple piece of string and a button make a simple divining pendulum, a faceted crystal point at the end of a chain adds a rich dimension to your dowsing practices.
Pendulums are often used as tools for spiritual healing and inner growth. Defined as objects attached at the end of a string or metal chain, when suspended from a stationary position, a pendulum will swing back and forth or in a circular motion.
To begin, stand or sit comfortably allowing the pendulum to swing freely. Hold the pendulum with your dominant hand in front of you – or rest your elbow on a table to keep your hand steady. To determine the Yes response, simply think or say “Show me a yes” and to determine a no response, simply think or say “Show me a no.”
Please Note: Since these are made of genuine crystals, variance does occur in size, shape, and color.
Amethyst stimulates the third eye and all six “clairs” (or sensory gifts): clairvoyance, clairaudience, claircognizance, clairsentience, clairolfaction, and clairgustation. These are terms for the ability to spiritually see, hear, know, sense, smell, and taste the truth. Use this purple-toned quartz to ward off nightmares and encourage sweet dreams and restful sleep. It is also good to help you remember your dreams. Amethyst helps protect you from psychic attacks and clear out the negative thoughts of the day. This stone is perfect to invite the angelic vibes of Archangels Gabriel, Metatron, Raziel, Tzaphkiel, and Zadkiel.
The purple vibration in amethyst has powerful transformative qualities. To use this vibration in changing unwanted situations, imagine yourself surrounded by a vibrating, glowing bubble of violet light emanating from the stone. As you imagine this, know that all that you are upset about or challenged by is currently being transformed and transmuted into something powerful. Imagine the situation changing to what you do want versus how it currently is. The vibration of your imagination of how you want your life to be combined with the violet light will effectuate change.
