Pendulum To Know Pt. 2
The second reason some are not successful with a pendulum is because they do not practice. There is a certain amount of training that is needed. I am talking mainly about self-training.
For example, we have said the main way that you use a pendulum is for a yes no answer. You have to train your pendulum about what is the yes and what is the no. Some people have a swing away from you and back to you to be a yes, while a left right swing is a no. In that case if the swing goes circular that is another answer, that is the answer is not yes or no at that time. The issue is undecided.
Personally, I use a clockwise circle to mean yes, and a counter clockwise circle to be no. In my case if the pendulum goes in some line forward and back or left and right then the issue is undecided at this time.
Whichever way you decide to be your yes no, when you start with the pendulum you need to practice that. You need to spend a few days doing that every day until the physicality of yes and no are implanted into your subconscious mind.
How can you practice that?
Here is one way. Take a question that you absolutely know the answer is yes. I am male so I might choose the question “Am I a man?” The answer is definitely yes, no ifs, ands, or buts.
Now hold the pendulum by the string gently between the thumb and one or two fingers on your non dominant hand.
You are about to start blueprinting your subconscious you are not looking for the answer. You are practicing, self training. Hold it out where it can swing.
Now. Start asking and repeating, “Am I a man?” Now while asking, consciously cause the weight to move in the direction of your chosen for the yes indication. Keep asking and keep the directional motion going. You are blueprinting your subconscious to associate that movement of the weight with a yes answer to a question. Do this daily for a few minutes while you have some free time. It is your pendulum training time.
When you have done that for awhile during your practice time, do a no question, and do it for awhile with the no motion intentionally caused. I, a man, asked, “Am I pregnant?” I swung the weight counter clockwise. You are training your subconscious to know that this movement is a no.
When you have done this a few days or a couple of weeks, you are good to go with a yes no pendulum. Once you have trained with a pendulum, you are trained for all well balanced ones. You generally will not need refresher training. The subconscious has been blueprinted and will remember how to communicate with the pendulum.
Then in real practice, you asked the question intended to be answered and empty your mind. There is a form of meditation called pendulum meditation. You zone out holding the non moving weight and wait without thinking for trying. Whatever happens, happens. It is the answer. It may take a few minutes. And when movement starts, wait until the swing is well established. Do not try to influence the movement. Your conscious mind is out of it now. The subconscious will speak.
One morning, after I had trained my pendulum, I was getting ready for work and could not find my keys.
I knew that I had driven home that night, and so the keys had to be in the house. I looked and looked. But I could not locate them.
Something said, “Bill, ask the pendulum.” So I got my pendulum and asked if the keys were in the house. I received a yes answer. I stepped into all the rooms that I had been in. And room by room asked “Are my keys in this room?” In every room I got a no answer.
I thought this pendulum thing is not working. I thought again, and it occurred to me that the car is in the garage which is technically in the house.
[The subconscious is literal, and so you should be careful in making your question literally precise.] Had I left the keys in the car? I asked if the keys where in the garage, and the answer came yes.
In relief I rushed out to get the keys out of the car. And they were not in the car. I was totally frustrated now. And headed back into the house.
I was thinking why had I wasted my time with the pendulum when I could have been looking. As I reached for the garage door knob back inside, there were the keys. I had left them in the door lock, i.e., they were in the garage.
What had happened?
In this case I had known where I last had the keys. But for some reason I had a conscious mind block as to where I had left them. That information was in my brain, but my conscious was not able to know where or access that part my conscious memory. I was mentally blocked.
At the same time my subconscious knew where I had left the keys. I had to access the subconscious to access the answer of where the keys were. The information was implanted in my deep mind.
Since my subconscious had been blueprinted with the pendulum yes no, it was able to answer the question by moving the pendulum. I had not consciously moved the weight. The subconscious had moved it. I had been involved in an alternative way to know where my keys were.
