Donvega, Your subconscious mind is much deeper, and holds the memory of every experience that you have ever had, whether you recall that experience consciously or not. This is why hypnosis works so well in helping people to recall past events. It is a way for them to access the deep subconscious mind. A pendulum works in the same way.
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...
You hold the string between thumb and forefinger. You mentally tell the subconsious to swing for yes over and over until it moves in one of the four directions. Then you do the same thing for no. Write these movements down as they will remain the code for yes and no from your subconscious. If the string is long, you will have to wait a long time to get an answer as your pendulum will move too slow. If your string is shorter, you will get answers faster. 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.
Make the questions yes and no questions. Mentally repeat the question and only the question until you get a response.
Some uses of the Subconscious storage bank can lead to peace of mind. For instance, how many times have you left on a trip, got a number of miles away from home and thought, "Did I lock the door ? " or "Did I turn off the stove ? " In such a case, we either go back and check, which results in aggravation when we learn we did lock the door and delayed our trip for nothing or we worry about it all the time we are gone. With Subconscious communication, your Subconscious can tell you whether you did or didn't do something and you can return home and correct it or proceed on your trip with freedom from worry. Listen to your subconscious mind. Do you get gut feelings? Do you have intuition about certain things or people? Listen to them. That’s your subconscious mind talking (or at least TRYING) to talk to you.
When you’re in rapport with your subconscious mind, the thoughts from your conscious mind will transfer to your subconscious mind a lot easier. You’ll be able to break addictions, stop bad habits and create new habits, and really go for your goals without any self-sabotage. You cause yourself problems by being out of rapport with your subconscious mind. You solve problems and create solutions by being in rapport and working with your subconscious mind.
Remember that the pendulum is your way to interact with your own subconscious mind, and cannot tell you how someone else feels. Also by using a pendulum, is what this is suppose to show us or tell us is that it reveals an unconscious movement toward the answer. If you were to try and analyze what to do then the unconscious significance is lost. Learning about your subconscious is like finding out you have a lot more players on your team than you might have thought.
I would like to make the final point that there is nothing mystical or magical about using a pendulum... they are merely useful tools for accessing the subconscious mind, and are not paranormal in any form.
