How the Pendulum Works
The pendulum can be thought of as an extension of the intuition, since it is used to gain access to information that exists at the subconscious level of the Inner Being. It could be said that it strengthens or amplifies the intuition because it converts the subtleties of the intuition into a more obvious form of physical motion. When you ask a question of the pendulum, it is your own intuition that answers it. The pendulum merely allows you to physically see what the intuition already knows. As an extension of the intuition, the pendulum can give you information from the same two sources as the intuition: from your own subconscious mind; and from your guidance, spirit, or guardian angel. Because of how it operates, the pendulum can only answer questions that are phrased so that the answer is either "yes" or "no".
The pendulum can be used for choosing between alternatives in a relatively wide range of areas. To get an answer from the pendulum, simply ask any yes/no question about a specific thing that would be good for you, but only in areas where you have the right to make the decision, for example, anything to do with health & healing, love or domestic relationships, career. Here are some typical areas where the pendulum can be used to good advantage:
Making a Choice of any kind. (Do I want to travel for my vacation or stay home?)
Figuring out what is best to do. (Would it be better to keep my present job or look for a new job?)
Figuring out how you really feel about something. (Do I want children in the near future?)
Becoming more conscious of who someone is inside, to know his motivation, his compatibility with you.
Determining your probability of success in a situation.(Do I have what it takes to complete this course?)
Finding the cause of physical symptoms. (Is my diet causing my migraines?)
Determining what foods or vitamins to take. (Would it be good for me to double my Vitamin C intake?)
Determining what is causing an allergic reaction. (Am I lactose intolerant?)
Prospecting for water, oil, treasure. (Is there gold over here?)
Finding missing people or pets, or lost objects. (Is my key under the bed?)
