Copper is a natural conductor of energy; both physical and spiritual. So these are especially potent for divination work. Copper is also thought to activate the Root and Sacral Chakras.
Pendulums can be used as a form of divination. They can be asked yes or no questions. The pendulum can move Forwards and Backwards, Left and Right, Clockwise or Anti-Clockwise. Everybody is different. Allow your pendulum to move freely and pay attention to how it moves for you.
The pendulum doesn’t know things that you don’t know. It doesn’t have a brain or a spirit inside of it. The information is actually coming from you. That’s right—you are the receiver, so to speak. The information you gain from the pendulum is information that you’re picking up psychically on a subconscious level.
Once you have established an answer for Yes then ask your pendulum to show you the answer for No. This is usually the opposite movement to your yes answer. This will help you build a relationship with your pendulum. This will take practice and patience, but once you've established a relationship with your pendulum using it will be as simple as tying your shoes!
