How Do You Use Your Tools?
I received an interesting question this morning about pendulums. This person was concerned that her use of pendulums was leading her to negative things. That the pendulum was, or could, tell her to do things that were harmful. This is an incorrect view of what a pendulum does, and since I occasionally see this distortion, I would like to clarify.
Pendulums are simple energy reading tools. Pendulums are not channeling devices. They do not connect you will beings or entities. It is also not correct to say we are “asking the pendulum” because the pendulum itself is not actually telling us anything of its own. Instead, the pendulum is a tool for detecting information that is present. It reads electromagnetic information. That simple. So, much like a medical device that can detect electromagnetic energy, or devices that help us to locate water beneath the surface of the earth with ultrasonic waves, pendulums do this in a very simplified way.
Now, pendulums can only give us information in response to a yes/no question. They have no language to tell us anything specific, but they can swing in one direction or the opposite. When you ask a simple yes/no question, the pendulum detects your energy, including energy you may not be aware of (such as the subconscious mind), as well as the energy immediately involved with what you are asking about. So, if you ask “is this vitamin supportive to my body right now?” the pendulum will detect your energy, the energy of the vitamin, and how the two energies resonate or work with each other at that moment. The ‘yes’ or ‘no’ you receive will be based solely on that.
Because of this, it is important to remember that we are the ones that are in control of our pendulums. We choose our questions, so our questions need to be in the form of yes/no or we will likely get no information at all, or information that is very confusing. Choose your questions with care and be direct and precise. Pendulums can’t tell us what to do or give us life advice. It is best to completely avoid asking questions that begin with “should I.”
We have to remember the limitations of our tools. We wouldn’t expect our microwaves to drive us to the store, right? We wouldn’t expect an ultrasound machine to tell us what decisions we should make about our lives, only to give us information. And we shouldn’t expect our pendulums to tell us everything about ourselves and our lives, nor should we rely on them to make decisions for us.
Pendulums can’t see the future. And we really need to remember that the future is not fixed. It is always fluctuating, with every new decision, thought, and emotional state that each being experiences. Each of us plays a part in the unfolding of the future, minute by minute. For that reason, it is pointless to use a pendulum to ask what will happen in the future. Instead, make decisions that you know to feel right for you, then move ahead from there.
Your pendulum has no power over you. No tool does unless you give that power over. Please don’t rely on tools of any sort, while ignoring your own ability to see what’s in your own heart. Listen to your body, your inner voice. No tool or device can decide how you live or what choices you make. Just like you wouldn’t turn to your microwave to help you make life decisions. Be cautious of reliance on tools, cards, devices, crystals, or anything else to guide you or tell you what is right for you.
My hope for you is that you will come to use your pendulum less and less as you come to trust your gut more and more. My goal has never been to teach my readers and students to use any tool so that you replace your own natural instincts with the tool. That is a miserable state of affairs. In the modern world, humans already rely more and more on tools and less and less on our own bodies and gut instincts.
To truly know ourselves, to tune in and remember who we are and how we can be, we must renew our connection with our inner voice. Tools can help us remember that voice is there, and they can help us trust what it is saying. They can even help us to demonstrate what is nebulous in a concrete way. But we should not replace our instincts with a reliance on tools, or we will be at peril of losing our connection with instinct altogether while it atrophies even further.
