Pedulums

Post by Sherryanne » 29 Oct 2016 13:26

Hi Blt, wondering if you will give me some advice on my pendulum!

I bought a amythest pendulum several months after my mum died. It actually chose me. I went into a crystal shop in the mind of having a rose quartz or a chakra coloured one. I held them and all they did was slightly vibrate but no swaying. But I thought this was normal and it may move after some practice. I was asked to try the amythest and it immediately swayed back and forth. My daughter taught me how to get to know it with asking yes and no questions and the don't know. I did not use it much, maybe half a dozen times with big gaps between. It was very accurate and I felt I could trust it. Then one day I got it out and it hardly moved when I used it and it did not give all correct answers. This happened over the next four or five times and I lost faith in it so haven't used it since. It didn't feel right.

However, I remembered my friend had bought me two pendulums so I held each of those and got a strong movement from one so I have used that around three times since. It seemed accurate and sincere. I am thinking of doing a little demonstration on Halloween for a small party at ours. I always ask for protection and positivity before use and thank you afterwards.

Am I going the right way about this?

A Pendulum is a form of Dowsing. Because the pendulum in this case is crystal you need to know about the property of said crystals.. First off I keep my Ameythyst point in a small velvet pouch in a dark box with my other crystals as they can be affected by various things.. They can absorb the enrgy from surroundings, never keep them out in the open or near an enerhy source like electrical equipment. So basically you need to cleanse them in one of different ways.

First you can dip the crystalin salt water and then rinse with distilled water and leave to dry on a kitchen towel away from eletricalitems or you canplace it on a saucer and leave it out in the moonlight over night..

The principle of a pendulumn is the Ideomotor effect.. It depend how you hold it, be it chain or cord. The best method is usually not to have the chain too long or to short. About 6 inches of chain above the crystal is good. Wrap the excess chain around your fingers so it doesn't unravel.

Hold the pendulum in your dominent hand and still the pendulum with the other. Hold the pendulum just in front of your knee of the dominent side. Now suspend the pendulum and set it in motion, say.. Show me yes. then note this, still the pendulum and repeat and this time, say 'Show me No' note this... I never use don't know...

Using the pendulim... depends onwhat you want to do withit. I use mine for Chakrah Balancing.. But then I teach a workshop for that as its more advanced..
So I do not know how you are intending to do a Demo.. what you intend.
Is this of help to you..

Yes, Blt, it is of help, thank you. The pendulum descriptions, length if chains are as I have, so that part ok! I have not cleansed them quite right though. I ran under tap water and then dried straight after.

I am out of my depth regarding chakra balancing but basically use the pendulum with the intention of keeping in contact with my mum and dad if needed. I wouldn't do this as an every day thing, only when the urge really takes me as I don't feel it would be right. Just now and again I need to at least feel they are still around me. I would probably use once every three to four months, if that.

I always ask if it is ok to ask questions. On two occasions I have been told 'no' lols. So I say goodbye and will try another time. When it is ok to ask I go along the lines of 'Do we have guardian angels' Do we have more than one? Do you come to see us often? Do you know how much I love and miss you? Is God 'Love'. I got a yes for that one! And basic questions about what is happening in our lives. I am careful not to abuse any possible contact. Of course I find out who I am conversing with at the start.

I have sometimes felt very emotional as it's gone along and have even cried, but not sad crying. So I guess you could say I use it for my own personal use. What I might do tomorrow is show my brother and the few others there how it replies to questions. So that is what I mean with demo.

I am not sure of the stone I am using as it isn't one I am familiar with but I will give you a description and wonder if you might know. It is mid brown in colour with paler tones, almost amber, but dull, not the orange amber, running through it.

Hmm Is it natural or polished.. Would it if polished be a Tigers eye? Or if its a sort oftoffee colour with paler striations it might be Rhodonite or Rhodocrosite. Google some imagaes of them .

I hope you enjoy your evening.. I am probably staying home..

Thanks Blt - hoping it will be a lovely and quiet evening.

I hope you have a nice evening too whatever you do.

I don't know why I didn't think of that! I shall go google those names now and see what it is. I'm pretty sure it's polished - and it is more like a toffee colour. I'll let you know!

Right I have searched the net till I am goggle eyed lols! And I am still not sure but it could be Tigers eye or Brown Jasper.

I have also been thinking about what you said about the pendulum being a dowsing tool and although I was aware of this it sort of went from my mind. When I first had the pendulum I searched the net about it and there were differing views on how it worked - one being our subconscious mind and the other being spirit. As you know I have used mine hoping to have some contact with my mum or dad.

Regarding the event it is my subconscious mind at work and taking the scenario that I lost my keys but my subconscious mind knew where I had left them and guided me to them. Yes, I can accept this.

So taking into account it is the ideomotor affect and reacting to the things that my subconscious mind is aware of that my conscious mind isn't ---- can it give me answers that it knows my mum and dad are existing in the spirit world, although my conscious mind has doubts? Could this be what is giving me the answers I am asking?

Sorry for my ignorance and questioning Blt but I really need some good honest thoughts on this so I can get my head around it and I don't know anyone anymore I can trust apart from the medium I will see when I get round to sorting another appointment.

I cannot say you using a pendulum will prove anything about your parents who passed.I have to be honest there. The Pendulumis a tool the results you obtain are subject to your interpretation or misinterpretation of the replies..

TBH your best action to possibly contact your people who have passed is by regular meditation. that means prolomged and regular every day thru all the levels.

But there is no Medium in the land who can ever guarantee to get a specific spirit entity and if anyone tells you different they are not being honest.

The thing is, it is dependant on a lot of factors, consider that there have been multi millions of people who have passed over, there are very few Mediums that are able.. Imagine the queues!! I am not being flippant just factual..
My grandmother was a Medium but she took 23 years to come thru to me..
My mother was a Medium, she took about a year to come thru..
It took my father a' non believer' about 3 years to come thru to me, but he did come thru to my mum shortly after he passed.. So you see you can be using a pendulum for a very long time and still not get anything.

There are so many methods of contact it may be better for you to expand your 'Development' by joining a Circle yourself .. Everyone developes at a different rate.. It is not a rapid fix. I actively sat in a closed Circle for 5 yrs.. Honestly think about whether you want to take that serious step... Above all Do not Dabble it is not a party game.. You can open a can of worms and may noy have the ability to correct things that may happen..

The subject is vast, you need to know about Guides, Facilitators, Door Keepers and even Healers etc.. But yuo just enjoy your party tomorrow night and do not be in too much of a hurry.. :hug:

Thank you for taking the time to reply and advise, Blt. Much appreciated. I really don't want to 'dabble' and this is why I asked what you thought.

I will take on board about the meditation and I wonder if I should be content with the occasional dream visitation, conicidences which feel more than that, or mum and dad paying an unexpected visit. I wouldn't want to go down the route of joining a circle for development as I don't feel I would be comfortable to go to such depth. I think, like all of us, I am open to spiritual experience to some degree due to what I have seen over many years. Few but enough and I am grateful for that.

I think I am meant to 'see' only what they intend me to without trying lols.

I may use the pendulum tonight in a very light way, do some protection beforehand just in case, and afterwards. I do talk to my guardian angels every day - I don't hear them - but I do feel they are there supporting me and guiding me. There will be a lot of 'love' in the room between those of us there, so hopefully it will be in the right conditions, especially if I do it with the mind of being my subconscious mind replying.

Sorry if that's garbled and thanks again :heart:

I understand completly that you do not feel you could join a circle. There are different types and levels as in all thngs. I sat in a 'Closed Circle' this is for experienced people to home their gifts and to learn the correct way to work. It was for Intermediates to Advanced level, to hone skills for Platform work or to progress to maybe Physical Mediumship as opposed to mental mediumship.

Really the first step is called an 'Awareness group' and it not a closed circle, every one is starting out... I have taught Circle, but it was 'Intermediate to Advanced' and it was a 'Closed Circle' a small group of pretty good people. But it was time consuming and I was also running Psychic events and caring for elderly parents so I had to give it upabout 4 years ago.
I just did Paranormal investigations .. :ghost: Never faked a thing either, didn't need to :rofl:

As both parents have passed now I am considering going back to it. I have never really stopped connecting, I moved on to more specialised Physical Mediumship, which is 'Trance & Transfiguration' where I was fortunate to be mentored by some excellent Mediums like Tony Stockwell and Jay Love and I worked with I In the last 16 years I developed the healing side of things and its what I do most of these days for people all over the planet.. :angel:

That all sounds so fascinating Blt. I have always had an interest in these subjects. When I think back as far as I can remember as a young child I never thought that this life was done after 'death'. In fact I have had to make myself listen to the saying 'This life isn't a rehearsal', because I have always felt it's not all there is. Having said that, now I have lost both my parents, like you have, I am seeing the sense in that saying. Because even if there is life after death, the physical loss is a permanent one whilst we are here.

On my first day at school I sat with crayons and did what was a load of scribble, but I was impressed with it as I clearly remember sitting back in my chair and looking at my creation of reds, oranges and yellows with hint of blue and thinking, that's where God lives. I don't know where this thought came from as neither mum or dad were religious, though they did have religious morals and their own beliefs. I doubt I would have been aware at such a young age. We never went to church. But I obviously had my thoughts on God lols.

As an adult I got my own PC when the children were off doing their own thing and I began lots of research into the paranormal. Not so much in the way you have, but reading lots of books, spiritual church, table tipping events and seeing some transfiguration, plus my own experiences and that of my family I came full circle in that I started off a believer, had a time of doubt (which last all of a week or two) back to believing again. Though I do admit I have times of doubt, but I know in the core of me I believe very strongly.

I find the physical mediumship especially interesting but it's not something I could ever sit through as I wouldn't be able to sit in total darkness for any length of time. Having said that I had read that not all work in the dark. It must be fascinating and satisfying to be regularly involved with though.

My mum always felt she was a natural healer, and especially with animals. My daughter has done healing too and did her reiki courses, but her life has taken her away from it for the time being as she is too involved with other things. I don't think it's ever far away though as she does use it for family and friends if need be.

It might be a good thing for you to get back into what you came away from Blt.

Incidently, I didn't use my pendulum last night! I wasn't sure about it, so if not sure, leave be is my motto lols. Had a really lovely night just eating, drinking and chatting.
