Pendulums are a very versatile tool for personal growth and consciousness expansion. They’re easy to learn, can travel with you anywhere, and can be used for self-hypnosis, energy healing, meditation and divination. In this article you’ll learn different pendulums and their uses.
Pendulums are made from many materials, from beautiful woods like Coconut, to semi-precious gemstones and metals. Each material provides unique properties that can intensify the work you do with your pendulum. When choosing a pendulum(s), consider the primary goals you have for it and choose materials that will best enhance those practices.
For energy healing practices, a pendulum with Chakra stones would be an excellent choice. You might also want to choose one made with copper, a metal known to conduct, balance and amplify healing energies.
For Divination purposes, a pendulum that conducts and elevates higher spiritual energies and protects against negative vibrations is ideal. Stones like quartz crystal are a good choice because they conduct, transform and amplify energy.
Merkabah pendulums are also very powerful for working with Spirit energy and connecting with your guides and higher self. The Merkabah is a multidimensional vessel that links us to higher dimensions and also provides protection while in altered states of consciousness. The Merkabah also links both sides of the brain, inspiring well-rounded, creative thought processes that enhance problem solving abilities.
Sheesham, also known as Indian Rosewood, is associated with the Divine Feminine, the Heart Chakra and for healing with compassion. It is an excellent pendulum to use during meditations for releasing obstacles and developing the higher self. Buddhist Monks often use prayer beads made from this wood specifically for its healing qualities.
