“You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.
Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them.”

My Pendulums

Some time ago I purchased a Moonstone pendulum (unfortunately I can't remember where from), and not really knowing what to do with it, I set it on the shelf and forgot about it. Recently though, I found a wonderful website called 'Ask Your Pendulum'. Eva, the owner and artist of the pendulums found on the site, is a talented and intuitive woman. I emailed her and asked her to create a custom pendulum for me. She came back with several suggestions, one of them being that the fob (the piece at the end of the pendulum that you hold onto) should be a silver piece of the Green Man. Now, how did she know that I'd been thinking about the Green Man of late and how I was feeling the need to incorporate him more into my rituals? Amazing, I thought to myself.

Eva also incorporated several stones into the pendulum for each of the descriptions of myself I had sent her. There is Mookaite - to honor my love of animals; Amber - representing Earth, sunlight, ancient wisdom, nature; Citrine - faceted to grab the light and help the SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder); Peridot – an excellent heart chakra stone for connections with family and friends; Aquamarine – a harmonizer; Iolite – a third eye activator; Rainbow Moonstone - clearing and bringing in uplifting energies. Each of these stones was selected especially for me, to suit my needs and help with healing.

The pendant itself is made of Clear Quartz . . . a universal healer and one Eva picked out for me which I thought was appropriate for the use I had in mind for it . . . incorporating it into my Reiki practice along with crystals and stones.

Now, here's where it gets interesting . . . I was cleansing my pendulums on Friday night and just on a whim I thought I'd ask them a few questions. I started with my Moonstone pendulum . . . the answers came back sure and swift . . . yes, from left to right and no from top to bottom. I was incredulous! I was not prepared for my Moonstone pendulum to be so decisive and so quick in answering. And then I became mesmerized . . . as soon as the answer came, the pendulum stopped swinging and was ready for the next question. I started with simple questions like, is my name Teresa? Yes! Am I a man? No! Am I happy with my life? Yes!

Happy with the results from my Moonstone pendulum, I moved on to cleansing my new Quartz pendulum. Again, I asked the questions. What I wasn't prepared for though was the connection that came between my new pendulum and myself. I felt a pulsing, almost throbbing, sensation coming down my arm, through my hand and into the pendulum. I was ecstatic! I formed a connection with my pendulum and my pendulum with me. Again I asked the questions and again I was answered with 'yes' from left to right and 'no' from top to bottom. I was hooked! What really surprised me was how quickly the answers came and how, after the question had been answered, quickly the pendulum stopped moving. It was awesome!

Now, I was left wondering why I'd waited so long to use my Moonstone pendulum . . . "all in good time", was the answer I received. I guess I was ready for the connections to be made.

Oh, and the question I asked about owning a Mercedes Benz? Sadly, the answer was no . . . bummer . . .

Oh your pendulums are very pretty! I have a pendulum but I don't often do much with it. I find it not very useful because I can make it do whatever I want. I can ask "Am I a man?" and if I think "go in a big circle" it'll go in a big circle instead of actually answering the question. I get to distracted by my power to make something switch directions in mid air to use it for it's intended purpose. I just end up sitting there making the pendulum swing every which way! I am glad you are enjoying them! I know a lot of people who find them very useful especially for revealing truths to yourself that you have a hard time admitting.

Oh Tereza, your pendulums are gorgeous! This is really amazing information. It reminds me of the old folk tale called "Vasalisa", which is a doll given to a little girl by her now deceased mother. This doll is a symbol for the child's intuition and answers her questions with no or yes much like this pendulum. I think I will need to get my own. Thank you so much for sharing.
