Pendulums can be used to answer any yes/no question. First establish your yes/no by asking the pendulum to show you a yes, and then show you a no. For some people it will swing clockwise and anti-clockwise, whilst for others it will swing back and forth. It is also possible to have one straight and one circular response but ideally which ever is your yes/no your pendulum should be responsive and clear. If the answer isn’t clear it will hover.
Pendulums can also be used over a map to divine for resources such as gold or water. You can draw up a noughts and crosses grid and list different options in the squares, your pendulum will move towards the different options to give you a more detailed answer. Lastly, they can be used for clearing the chakras (energy centres) in the body, holding the pendulum over each chakra at a time it will move in a clockwise direction to clear the chakra and then in an anti-clockwise direction to balance the chakra. When it stops for the second time you can move on to the next chakra, working you way through all seven energy centres.
