Develop your Sixth Sense with a Pendulum

pendulum2I first started developing my sixth sense with a pendulum, I must have been about 14-years old, and I didn’t know what I was doing, but realized that the back and forth swing of the pendulum was mesmerizing and actually put me in “alpha state.”

It helped me clear my mind so I could get the right answer to the yes and no questions I was asking. It took some practice.

So in my opinion, if you are first starting off trying to develop your sixth sense, then the practice of using a pendulum is the way to go. It’s a simple and ordinary little device that helps you communicate with your higher self, so you can access Divine Guidance when you do it.

You don’t need to be “gifted” all you need to do is develop that sixth sense that we all have. And it will open up this sense to where you can become more “psychic” in all aspects of your life and even do readings for others.

One of the reasons you might choose to use a pendulum, is that every time you develop another gift that you can use to communicate with spirit, your overall vibration gets higher.

As this happens, the overall level of gifts that you have become higher and therefore they are easier to use. This is also a tool that you can utilize to aid you in making decisions about healing.

Getting started with a pendulum is extremely easy, much easier than learning 78-card Tarot deck or focusing on a crystal ball for hours on end. Although all tools of divination are tools to help you strengthen your psychic abilities if you use them wisely.

Let’s take a look at what you need. You can either purchase a pendulum set/kit to get started, something that includes the Yes and No questions, or you can create your own pendulum platform. Like in the illustration below.  Or simple write on a piece of paper the yes and no cross.


Anything can be used as a pendulum even a paper clip with a little weight on it would do. A  pendulum is about 6-8 inches long with a proper weight on it. I use a  Shungite Pendulum because, it keeps the chain straight and it’s healing powers are outstanding.


Shungite is very old, ancient in fact. It is said to be around 2 billion years old. It is an extraordinarily positive stone, and using it may bring you a variety of blessings. This is an amazing stone, and one that is beneficial to a healthy life.

Some say Shungite was formed in ancient oceans and ended up on the land when land forms changed. Others think maybe it came to earth from outer space on a meteorite. Really no one knows and it seems to me that scientists are guessing at how it formed.

Any pendulum will work even one you make yourself. I’ve made one with string, and fishing weight or paperclips with rubber band weighting it down in the middle. Although I personally prefer using a pendulum made from crystal or shungite, any sort of weight on the end of a string will work.

If you have been developing any gifts, including any type of psychic gifts, such as clairvoyance, use a pendulum in combination with your other gifts, to get answers and guidance from spirit.

Once you have your pendulum and platform ready it’s important to do a couple of breathing exercises to relax and try to clear you mind. I recommend you just sit quietly holding your pendulum and count your breaths to 10. Don’t breathe hard or count to 10 to get it over with so you can get your answers, that never works. Just breath normally in through the nose and out threw the mouth 10 times. Focus on nothing but the sound of your breathing. This helps you to relax and prepare your mind for messages from spirit.

Make sure you start by asking simple yes and no questions. Simplicity is key in this practice. Yes and No questions are easy for you to absorb from spirit through pendulum, you can practice with a pendulum more as you get familiar with it and ask more complex questions later.

After you’ve done your breathing exercise, you can place your pendulum a few inches from the platform and ask it a question. Keep the pendulum as straight as possible, try to remain still, pretty soon the pendulum will swing to either the YES or NO, giving you the answer.

So how exactly does this work? I believe all questions and ANSWERS are within us, and it’s up to our spiritual selves to unlock the answers. The swing of a pendulum, the breathing exercises help put us in a clear and open frame of mind to receive the answers from the divinity in us.

If you are trying to strengthen your intuition and do readings for yourself, the pendulum is the best tool to learn. It’s also a great introductory tool in the realm of divination arts and will help you listen to what is going on around you, even when you aren’t using the pendulum. So keep practicing.
