Pendulums, one of the simplest yet most effective tools in energy and healing work. Pendulums come in many forms from as simple as a makeshift thread and paper clip to as ornate as gold and gems. Depending on use the material may or may not matter but I’ll get more into that in a bit. First we’ll discuss the theory on how they work, next you’ll learn how to choose your own pendulum, and lastly I'll give a bit of instruction how to work the pendulum. Let's get started!
What makes a pendulum actually work? The answer often depends on who you ask. The primary split tends to be between spirit controlling it and the idea of ideomotor response directing the pendulum using micro movements of our muscles.
First we’ll discuss ideomotor response. The ideomotor response means the unconscious or involuntary movement made in response to a thought or idea rather than to a sensory stimulus (freedictonary.com). “Ideo” relates to idea and “motor” to movement. What this theory states in regard to pendulums is that you will unconsciously direct the pendulum to give you the answer you are most focused be it positive or negative. Some believe that the answers are not directed by your conscious self but rather the pendulum is enabling to get a direct line to our subconscious or our higher self. The higher self is plugged into the universe and so the higher self has all the answers you need. In this theory your experience is just between you and your pendulum no other being or influence involved.
The second theory on how a pendulum works is the idea that spirit controls it. This “spirit” can be a human soul, angels, supernatural beings, or the divine. When you ask questions you are asking the universe or these beings and they are the ones answering you. In one belief the spirit physically moves and manipulates the pendulum itself. The other belief is that the spirit works by manipulating your body causing you to create the micro movements to give the answer they want.
Now that we have some idea on the theory behind how the pendulum works let’s go over how to choose your pendulum. There are pendulums made of every material known to man so how is one to know which type of pendulum they are to use? That depends entirely what you are planning to use it for. If you are planning to use your pendulum for healing you may want to choose certain gemstones that may lend a helping hand for instance. Even if you have a specific gemstone or type of pendulum in mind I always say follow your intuition. You may be searching for one type but if you find another that seems to call to you get that one instead. Often you will be directed to the pendulum you are supposed to get at the present time. Sometimes it will even be given to you.
Once you obtain your pendulum the next step is to learn how to use the pendulum. Of course this also depends on the intended use you have in mind. While pendulums can be used for healing, the most common use is as an oracle to gain answers on everything from locating things to deep spiritual questions or even more frivolous questions so this will be the primary focus of this article. The important thing to remember is all questions must be stated in a way that you are requesting a yes/no response as the pendulum can’t answer open questions. You can use a chart (some pendulums come with them) they can be purchased or you can create one on your own. You do not have to have a chart, however, but they can be a helpful visual aid.
To start using your pendulum as an oracle, first calm and center yourself. This is an important step because no matter which theory behind the pendulum you believe you can cause a false response by letting passing thoughts override your original question. If a thought pops into your head while you are using the pendulum you may get an answer for that passing thought instead of the question you set out to ask in the first place.
Once you have calmed and centered yourself. Put your elbow on a table and hold the end of the chain/ string of pendulum between your thumb and forefinger. Try to keep your entire body as still as you can while using your pendulum as any movement can cause a false answer. Now that you are in position it’s time to calibrate your pendulum. This part is easy. What you need to do is find out how the pendulum will show you it’s answer. State out loud to your pendulum “Show me ‘yes’.” Wait and watch the pendulum once it picks a direction (either up and down or side to side or clockwise or counter clockwise) repeat this for a “no” response and “do not want to answer’ then if you have a grid align it to the answers you received.
At this point you are ready to start your questions. Some people like to double check that they have properly calibrated by starting with a few basic questions you already know such as “am I a man/woman” or “is my hair color red” and so on. Once they feel everything is set they move forward and ask their questions. It is important to note that as with any oracle tool there is a risk of dependence. Some people become addicted to checking all of their decisions from large to small with their pendulum every day. Keep in mind that the future is always fluid and changing based on our behavior and the world around us. You bear the responsibility for all of your actions even if you checked in with your pendulum first. You don’t need a pendulum to make your decisions so do not give away your personal power. A pendulum is a way to “check in” and give you an idea of things but keep in mind that it’s just a tool like anything else. You can use it as often as you like but if you get to the point where you seem paralyzed and feel anxious when you think of making a decision (large or small) without your pendulum you may want to put it down and take some time to learn to function again without using it until you no longer feel the urge to use it . The same goes for tarot cards or other oracles and yes even for visiting psychics themselves.
A note on healing. One way pendulums are used for healing is to locate places of infection or concern that cannot be readily seen by the naked eye. They are also used to detect if a chakra is aligned during reiki energy work. Pending which way the pendulum spins will show if the chakra is spinning in the correct direction. Pendulums are typically used as tools for detecting location or assessment of condition rather than performing much of the actual healing work themselves.
After using your pendulum it’s a good idea to end your session by saying “thank you” be it to your higher self or the spirit or being you have been working with. When used for healing it is ideal to cleanse your pendulums afterwards to cleanse any negative energy from the healing work that may be present. When your pendulum is being used as an oracle follow your intuition to tell you if you think you need to cleanse it.

Your Spirited Guide,
You have your crystal/stone and you’ve cleansed it as needed now you’re ready to put it to good use! What’s the next step? That depends on what your plan is. Sometimes you may not have a direct use for the crystal/stone at this time. That is fine as you can give the stone time to show you why it found you. If you have a good idea of what you want to use the crystal/stone for then it's time to program it for your purposes. As I've said before and will many times again I am sharing with you my methods which have worked well for me in my experience, if it does not resonate with you a simple internet search will turn up many more methods of programing.
A recommended, but certainly not required, step is to take time to hold your crystal/stone then ask what its purpose is then enter a meditative state (whichever way you typically do) and let the universe tell you what the stone is meant to do for you.
Now that we have a clear purpose it’s time to get started.
Step 1 - Connect with the crystal/stone. Close your eyes and imagine your energy filling the crystal/stone and feeling the crystal’s/stone’s energy mixing with with your energy. This step allows you to to connect with the crystal/stone and program it to your frequency so it will be easier to use.
Step 2 - To program the crystal/stone, set your intent as to what you want the crystal/stone to do or what purpose you intend to use the crystal/stone for. Keep in mind a crystal/stone can be cleansed and then reprogrammed at any time so don’t worry about making a mistake. You can state the intent in your mind or state it out loud.
Step 3 - Close your eyes and imagine light (whichever color seems to fit your purpose best) filling the crystal/stone and imbuing it with your intent. Continue doing this until you feel it is time to stop. Then take a deep breath and open your eyes. You are now finished and your crystal/stone is ready to be used!
Short and simple! If you want more information scroll on our blog or take the direct root and hop over to our Codex of Lore page. As always, if you have questions, concerns, or ideas please feel free to comment below!

So you found yourself a crystal or a stone that you are excited to put to good use. Before you rush ahead take a few moments to stop and cleanse your stone. Why is this important? Well, energetically most stones and crystals are like sponges. They soak in the energy of the environment and the people around them. Think of it this way, each person who has touched the stone since it was dug out of the ground has had their energy absorbed into the stone. Be it positive or negative energy. This leaves the stone energetically “dirty” so before you use it is best to wash it clean.
Energy needs to flow through the stone in a focused way for most uses. If the stone is “dirty” this energy can fully or partially become blocked rendering your stone nearly useless or at least not working near its full potential for you.
I want to make a quick note here that some crystals and stones are said to work in a way that they cleanse themselves by repelling negative energies. Do what you feel you need to, it never hurts to cleanse even if a stone is said not to need cleansed. Trust your intuition.
Now that we know why we should cleanse it's time to learn how. Have no fear, cleansing is a very simple and easy process! A quick internet search will bring up thousands of different methods. I prefer to use my intuition and keep things simple. Follow the steps below for a quick, easy, and effective way to cleans any stone or crystal (it also works very well for any other objects you may use in meditation or rituals).
Step 1 - Check the type of stone to see what method is safe. We can use smoke, running water, Salt, and even fire to cleanse. We can also use sunlight or our personal connection with the universe/divine/magic. CAUTION I stress again that you research your stone to make sure your cleansing method is safe for the stone. Some stones cannot be put in water such as selenite which will very quickly begin to dissolve if left for even a minute. Other stones will fade in sunlight such as amethyst. Salt is corrosive so care should be taken with use. Choose your method and set up so that any items you need are with you. You can cleanse as many stones as you like at one time.
Step 2- Ground yourself (picture yourself as a tree with your roots growing deeply into the ground and breathe slowly and deeply in and out while picturing golden light entering your leaves and going down through your body and out through the roots taking all negativity and energy that does not serve you and cleansing it away). If you are religious you can say a prayer asking for the divine to aid you in cleansing your stones.
Step 3 - Take your stones and hold them one by one in your hand. Take your stone and set it in the bowl of salt/place it under running water/hold it in the smoke/set it in the sun/hold it in your hand/etc. Set your intention by ether internally or externally stating what you are doing. I say “ I cleanse this stone of all negativity, I cleanse this stone of all energy that does not serve me, I leave only the energy that will aid me. This stone is cleansed.” While doing this picture the stone filling with whatever color light that feels cleansing to you be it white/golden/green/etc. Feel the light working and cleansing the stone. Repeat your intention as many times as you feel necessary until you feel the stone is cleansed completely. Repeat this for each stone. You can do a batch but I personally feel taking the time to work with each stone individually is more effective as you can make sure each one is fully cleansed and it gives you the ability to commune with each stone. Do what feels right to you.
Step 4 - Give thanks to the universe/divine. Your stones are now cleansed and ready to be programmed! Easy, right?
One last note you will need to regularly cleanse most of your stones. Some people will choose a sort of schedule to follow, others cleanse after each use, I choose to follow my intuition. Do what works for you. Don’t be afraid to cleanse a stone when it feels like you should even if you just cleaned it a day ago. The universe is directing you to do so for a reason!
Okay so now we’re all shiny and clean, ready to program your stone now? Check back for my programming article for more information coming soon! As always, if you have questions, concerns, or ideas please feel free to comment below!

One question we get a lot is “how do I choose a crystal or stone?” A quick internet search will find you many different methods for choosing the perfect stone. However, I often find that stones and crystals choose me. There is a strong belief that crystals and stones will come into your life when they are needed.
I have found that there are a few simple steps to follow that always allow me to choose crystals/stones that resonate deeply with me and work very well.
Step 1 - Look at all of the crystals/stones on display and go to the first ones that catch your eye. Even if you have a certain crystal/stone in mind go to the ones that seem to attract your attention first. This may be the crystal/stone you need more so than the crystal/stone you are planning on seeking.
Step 2 - Pick up each crystal/stone until you get one that feels good in your hand. It will be one that you feel you don’t want to put down or it just feels like it fits perfectly in your hand. Set this crystal/stone aside. Try a few more and see if the original one you set aside still seems to resonate with you and feel best in your hand. Often you will feel reluctance to put the crystal/stone back and leave it on the table.
Step 3 - Be willing to walk away if you don’t find a crystal/stone that feels right. Even if there is a certain stone you have been looking for if none of the available ones seem to feel like they resonate with you it's not time for you to get the stone yet and it will come when it is supposed to.
While there are many ways to find a crystal/stone, they will seem to find you more often than not. If you are willing to just listen to them. You can also may be a conduit, finding stones for others. If you are attracted to a stone, and when you pick it up, you think of someone out of the blue, or think how much they would love it, Then the stone may be asking for help to get to them. On the flip side, you may receive gifts of stone from others, due to the same process.
No matter if you stone finds you, or you find the stone make sure you cleanse them once you take them home. Cleansing will remove any odd energy or negative energies that may hinder your workings with the crystal/stone and allow you to program it to your aura and for your purposes. Just like you clean the bag of apples before eating them, you need to clean your stones and crystals before use.
Make sure to check out my articles on cleansing crystals/stones and programming them coming soon! As always, if you have questions, concerns, or ideas please feel free to comment below!
