A pendulum is a great way to get a read on the current state of your chakras. Below you’ll find a guide on how it is done…
A pendulum will give you feedback about the location of each chakra and its movement. The best pendulums for our purposes are conical and made of beechwood. You can make your own pendulum with a small piece of wood and a string.
The pendulum increases the sensitivities to energy flow by acting as an amplifier. It is a tool that helps you to access the Unified Field of all information as well your Higher Self.
When you first get your pendulum, carry it around with you for a few days in your pocket so it begins to resonate with your energy. Be sure to bless it each and every time you use it. Hold the string between your thumb and forefinger and let the pendulum hang down, not allowing it to touch anything, and make sure your hand and arm are completely still. When it stops moving you can begin. Ask a question to which you know the answer is “yes.” For example, your first name, your age, your city of residence. Note which way the pendulum begins to move, either side-to-side, clockwise or counter- clockwise, and remember, this movement will always be your “yes” answer.
Test a few questions where you always know for sure the answer is “yes.” Do the same thing with some questions where you know the answer is “no,” for example, choosing an incorrect first name, an incorrect age and a city that is not your residence, and record that direction of movement too. Now, you’re ready to start asking questions that your personality and conscious mind don’t know the answer to, but the information is available to your unconscious mind, Higher Self, or the field of all information.
It’s best to test your pendulum before you try to test chakras with it. Come up with 20 test questions, 10 true and 10 false, where you know the correct answer and record your answers; you need at least 60 or 70% accuracy before moving on to test chakras.
Remember to center, relax, and clear your mind so you are focused only on the question you are asking, so that you don’t accidentally project the answer you want into your results.
Clockwise movement over a chakra indicates openness—that the feelings governed by that chakra are well balanced and full. If there is no movement at all, that can indicate you are in the wrong place on the body or it could indicate blockage. Counter-clockwise would indicate possible blocked energy or negative experiences with the feelings related to that chakra. Whether the circle is larger or smaller also tells us if a lot of energy is flowing through, or a restricted amount. The more the movement is distorted, the more severe the psychological distortion is for the related chakra. It’s best if all the chakras are relatively the same in the size of their movement. An elliptical swing indicates a right/left side imbalance of energy flow in the body, perhaps from overusing either the right/masculine side or the left/nurturing side.
You can also use your pendulum for divination purposes. The divination aspect of pendulums has been around for many centuries. The ancient Romans and the French seer, Nostradamus, used pendulums. They held the pendulum over a basin that had the characters of the Greek alphabet inscribed on it and allowed it to spell out words.
- Bless your pendulum.
- Ask your pendulum a minimum of 20 “true/false” questions as discussed in the audio and the read for this week. Once you’ve gotten a minimum of 60% correct answers, go on to the next activity.
- Take the True/False Quiz.
Before you use your pendulum, take a moment and take the following “true/false” quiz. Then, ask the same quiz questions of the friend you’ve chosen to help you test your chakras with the pendulum. Keep your answers confidential from your friend and vice versa until you’ve both had your chakras tested.
- I’m connected to the earth and healthy.
- My creative energies are open and flowing.
- My sense of self-esteem is strong.
- My heart is wide open and I give and receive love easily.
- I express myself easily.
- I regularly dream and have strong intuition.
- I am a really spiritual person and feel very connected to guidance.
Now that you and your friend have both answered the true/false questions, you can each take turns checking one another’s chakras with a pendulum. Have your friend lie down, face up, and hold the pendulum above each of their seven chakras. Hold the pendulum about 4 – 6 inches or 10 -15 cm above each chakra. After a moment, the pendulum will begin to move. The person holding the pendulum records what movement results at each chakra: clockwise, counter-clockwise, elliptical, a straight line, erratic or no movement at all. Give the pendulum a minute or two, if necessary, for the movement to settle firmly into a pattern.
You need to have a mind free of any expectations about what you will find. That’s the hard part – you’ll need to practice that. Be sure the pendulum isn’t touching your friend’s body.
First Chakra: Over the sacrum.
Second Chakra: Located halfway between the first chakra and your waist.
Third Chakra: Located above the waist halfway between the navel and the sternum.
Fourth Chakra: Located in the center of the chest.
Fifth Chakra: Located in the center of the throat.
Sixth Chakra: Located between the eyebrows.
Seventh Chakra: Located at the top of the head.
If the chakra movement was clockwise, that chakra is open—congratulations, and if you answered “true” to that question, you were right. However, if that chakra’s movement was counter-clockwise, elliptical, in a straight line, erratic or it didn’t move it all, then that chakra needs a little rebalancing and the correct answer to the question for that chakra would have been “false.”
