You can use the pendulum to help you with any problem, question that you have, or something you need more clarity around. Just remember, the pendulum can only answer "yes" or "no" questions, if it swings towards a maybe then the Universe is not ready to give you an answer yet and take this as a sign to think about what it is that you desire and take more action on it. The only thing you have to make sure of when using a pendulum and board is to phrase your questions in a way that can allow you to get a clear answer.
- Cleanse Your Pendulum: Whether it's a crystal pendulum or not, pendulums need cleansing too as they hold energy that could interfere with your answers if not cleansed. You can cleanse the pendulum with sage or another herbal smoke, outside under a full moon, soak it in water if the material or crystal is water friendly, or simply by holding it under cold tap water.
Hold the pendulum: Hold the end of the pendulum (so the crystal can swing freely) with your dominant hand between your thumb and index finger. Ensure that you hold it loosely so that it can move freely.
Calibrate the pendulum: Before you start using the pendulum, you need to calibrate it. To do this, hold the pendulum over the center of the board, and ask a question to which you already know the answer. For example, you can ask, "Is my name [insert your name]?" The pendulum should swing in a direction that represents the correct answer. Take note of this direction, as it will represent a 'yes' response.
Ask your questions: Once you have calibrated the pendulum, you can start asking your questions. Hold the pendulum over the board and ask your question. The pendulum will swing in the direction that represents the answer. For example, if you ask, "Will I make a million dollars in my lifetime?" and the pendulum swings towards the 'No' side of the board, then the answer is no. Take note that the pendulum might not always work. Sometimes a pendulum will not want to answer nor be open to answering a particular question at that time and it will swing to "maybe" or the pendulum might simply remain still.
Interpret the answer: After the pendulum has swung in a particular direction, take note of the direction and interpret it as a yes or no answer. If the pendulum swings towards the 'Yes' side of the board, then the answer is yes. If it swings towards the 'No' side, then the answer is no.
It's important to note that using a crystal pendulum on a yes and no board is a form of divination, and the accuracy of the answers may vary. Also, it's essential to remain calm, open, and focused while using the pendulum to avoid any subconscious influence on the movement of the pendulum.
