A pendulum is a weighted object that hangs from a string or cord. It is a tool of divination and is used for spiritual guidance, making decisions, answering questions, and cleansing negative energy. For those who want to know how to use a pendulum, you ask a question, hold the pendulum, and it will swing in a certain direction to let you know the answer. To test which direction means yes, make a true statement such as "My name is..." and see which way it swings. Sometimes it makes a clockwise or counterclockwise cirlce and other times it may go back and forth vertically or horizontally. To test which direction means no, make a false statement and see which way it swings. If it doesn't move at all, or barely moves, you may need to reframe the question or statement or the answer is unclear or unavailable to you at the moment.
