A 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.
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.
Are you in touch with your spiritual side? Are you ready to transform your life? Through your spiritual connection with the Divine, you can receive intuitive insights to help you in your daily life.”
