Using a pendulum in a psychic reading is something that many people do. In fact, here at Wishing Moon we have previously explained how to make your own pendulum for psychic readings and how to get started once you’ve made it. But what we haven’t covered is how to cleanse your pendulum.
Why is it important to cleanse your pendulum?
Like with a lot of spiritual tools, it’s vital to regular cleanse your pendulum to ensure it remains balanced and accurate. Over time, and with regular use, your pendulum can collect negative energies, or become imbalanced with different types of energies. Even your own aura can affect your pendulum over time. If your pendulum isn’t regular cleansed and purified it can give you inaccurate results and throw your readings way off.
4 ways you can cleanse your pendulum
There are different ways that you can cleanse your pendulum depending on what your preference is and what you have used as your pendulum. For example, some crystals should not be placed in direct sunlight so it’s important to check before you begin.
1. Intuition and energy focusing
This is a great method no matter what your pendulum is made from, crystal, brass, wood etc. Place your pendulum in front of you and focus all your thoughts and energies into cleansing it of negative energies and imbalance. You can even call upon your spirit guide to help you. Not only does this method cleanse your pendulum, but it also energises it too!
Smudging is a great option if you’re not experienced with energy focusing because there’s no skill involved in smudging and anyone can do it. White sage is a great smudging tool. Smudge your pendulum for between 1 and 5 minutes to clear negative energies. The one drawback of this method is that whilst it is a quality cleanser, it does not energise the pendulum.
This is a really simple method and involves placing your pendulum in sunlight or moonlight for a few hours to use the light’s power. If you are using a crystal as your pendulum it may fade in direct sunlight. Amethyst and aquamarine do for example. In these instances you would harness the power of the moonlight rather than the sun. Four hours is a good amount of time but if your pendulum is particularly depleted or out of balance you can do it for a whole day/night. For extra power, conduct your cleanse when there is a full moon.
The earth is a great way to balance your pendulum. Mother Nature is the epitome of balance and you can use her power to cleanse and recalibrate your pendulum. In the same way that you can ground yourself by getting back to nature, your pendulum works the same way. Take it out into the world, let it feel fresh grass, allow fresh water to run over it and allow the air to breathe through your pendulum.
