Stunning black Swarovski crystal pendulum with faceted onyx and round carnelian beads with silver tone pentagram and chain.
Dowsing, as we know it today, has been practiced at least since the 15th century, originating in Germany as a way to search for metal. Dowsing with a pendulum is thought to connect one with spirit, or the higher self, to receive answers to direct questions. The crystal is believed to focus energies from a Divine or spiritual source, which manifests as movements in the tool, itself. Strong swinging up and down or moving in a clockwise direction means “yes,” while swing left to right, or in a counter clockwise fashion means “no.” However, this is not always the case.
It is important to “charge” your pendulum before it’s first use. While holding the chain, allow it to swing freely. Focus on the word “no,” and then the word “yes.” Take note of how it swings in response. These movements can vary from practitioner to practitioner, and even from pendulum to pendulum. “Charging” will enable you to know how this particular one works with you.
All of my pendulums are handcrafted in my home, cleansed with sage, and charged in the moonlight. Many contain natural stone beads. I can do custom orders for many different kinds of stones/charms. Feel free to contact me regarding custom work 🙂
