A pendulum is a weighted object hung from a fixed point so that it can swing freely backward and forward. A pendulum maintains its swing due to the force of gravity accelerating the pendulum back toward the equilibrium position.
An informal pendulum can be a charm, ring, crystal or piece of jewelry, all common items used to aid a psychic reading. Pendulums can be precisely measured weights and apparatuses such as the types used to balance pendulum clocks.
A pendulum is a common tool used by psychics and healers even though a pendulum has no inherent energy. Many psychics practice Pendulum Dowsing for healing purposes such as identifying allergies. Pendulum Dowsing can also cleanse negativity in a room, help locate lost objects or pets, and even find water!
Many believe that a pendulum creates a bridge between the logical and intuitive parts of the mind.
Some say that the pendulum allows for connections with a higher power. Research by many scientists indicates that the pendulum responds to electromagnetic energy that radiates from everything on Earth. Even Albert Einstein was a proponent for the beneficial scientific uses of pendulums.
For those interested, pre-weighted or calibrated pendulums are available for purchase. Many psychics prefer to use an item of personal significance as it is believed this makes it easier to perform personal psychic readings.
A pendulum acts as a receiver of energy fields, from the people it is surrounded by the whole of Earth. It is believed that by tapping into these invisible energy fields, we can subsequently tap into information that cannot be found in the everyday physical world.
