Which is safer, pendulum or Ouija board?
What candle, incense, etc. scents do ghosts prefer? ie. lavender, rose?
Are rechargeable batteries as good as regular?

nothing is safe, unless we take steps to make it. afterall we are contacting the unknown.

So in other words, don't be stupid and use common sense.

MOON does have a very good point. You are walking into something with your eyes closed.

The Quija Board and the Pendulum are both safe in my opinion, the Pendulum is just a tool to access or talk to your subconscious mind, while the Quija Board is just a simple board game. :)

I have used both and have had good results with both. There is nothing to be afraid of unless stupidity comes into play. When you open the door with the oiuja board, you have to close it when you are done. I have never seen first hand, any ill effects of either.

Okay...call me sheltered, but I don't know what a pendulum is (except the kind in a clock). Can someone explain this to me?? That'd be great. Thanks!

A pendulum is a cord or rope with a weight tied to the end. When using a pendulum, you hold the cord as still as possible then establish responses. You need something for yes, no, and I don't know. You can either dictate these reactions out loud, or ask some known questions and note how the pendulum reacts.

The most basic movements are:
* clockwise circle
* counter clockwise circle
* side to side swinging
* front to back swinging

As you progress, the pendulum may indicate numbers or letters.

I must warn you not to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.

A pendulum is a device for communicating with our sub-conscious. A pendulum is simple to make and easy to use. All you need is a length of chain or string 6" to 9" long. Attach a small weight to the chain or string.

A Pendulum looks like this, for example here is a picture of my Pendulum:

The true usefulness of a pendulum is limited only by the mind of the user. Most people use their pendulums in a variety of ways, such as:

Is this a good food for me?
Do I need to take this supplement?
Am I allergic to shellfish?
What dosage of Vitamin do I need?
Is this a happy form of exercise for me?
Where are my lost glasses?
Do I need to see a doctor for this condition?
Will I prefer movie A or movie B?
Is it in my highest and best good to take this job offer?

Your pendulum can only tell you a "YES" or a "NO" because there is a limited number of movements possible-- ie, forward and back, left to right, circle to the right, circle to the left, etc... It is best to let the Subconscious select its own movements for the code. It also reduces Conscious interference and indicates to the Conscious that the Subconscious does think and reason.

Angelinayorke, for more info on how to use the Pendulum/Talking to your Subconscious Mind, you can see my post here, as I have covered it all.

I've never used a pendulum, but have used a Ouija board for years, with results that were both frightening (resulting in a hiatus from board usage lasting several years) and enlightening (past several years, channeling our Guides).

I think the advice posted earlier, of making sure to "psychically close" the board after use, is excellent.

I also find results with the Ouija draw to some extent on the collective energies of all the people present. Perhaps our own energies create a vortex that attracts similar energies, enabling them to come through. It's good practice to burn incense, meditate, say a prayer or invocation and invite in positive energies.

Never did any of the above when I first started using the board, treating it as sort of a giggly, creepy parlour game. Attracted some strange messages purporting to be from entities named "Roger," "Victoria" and "Paul" (Victoria's husband). Victoria and Paul dictated a whole history, claiming to be spirits from the African-American community living around Evanston, IL in the late 1800s and practicing some form of animist magic. Victoria directed my housemate and me to plant white roses in our backyard, as a "talisman." We did, and despite our care the rose bushes promptly withered. Some time in mid-October, when our gardening venture had thoroughly dried up, we were out in the backyard in the evening, remarking what a failure the roses had been. We had communicated earlier with "Roger," who had directed us to go outside and "look for a sign" that he/they were with us. We found nothing of note, and went back inside. The following morning my housemate left a note on the windshield of my car [she left for work much earlier than I did] saying GO LOOK AT THE ROSES -- and when I did, on one of those stunted withered bushes there it was: one perfect white rose blooming. It hadn't been there the night before.

One other peculiar footnote. We never were able to understand Victoria's obsession with roses, especially white ones, or exactly how/why they were 'talismen.' But when I mentioned it to a colleague who was something of a local history buff, a puzzled look stole over his face as he told me, "Evanston, IL in the 1890's was known as the Rose Capital of the U.S. There were lots of greenhouses there at that time, specializing in roses."

Hey,

I'd Say that if it was your first time useing a Ouija Bored or Pendulum Id Probley Use A Pendulum. But experiment with both. For I just think Pendulums are eyesyer and MUTCH faster!

But Remember it will never be the best on the first time.

Hope that helped

I've never used a pendulum although I regulary communicate with my Guides via the board. Nothing frightening, and they've given us great direction.

But you've piqued my curiosity ...

I'll improvise a pendulum and play around with it, checking to see whether the pendulum's responses are consistent with that of the board.
