Using Your New Crowning Elements Pendulum
I like to activate my pendulum with my energy every time I use it.  I do this by blowing my breath across the pendulum three times. 
Now… the swings of the pendulum (‘yes’ and ‘no’ responses) have to be determined.  Dangle your pendulum from your dominant hand using your thumb and first two fingers.  Ask the pendulum to show you a ‘yes’ response.  Note the direction the pendulum is moving, this is your ‘yes’.   Repeat the process for ‘no’.  The two responses should be different.  Sometimes a pendulum will swing in a circular motion for one individual, and back and forth for another individual.  Get use to the pendulums response by asking some obvious questions that will give a true yes and no answer.  For instance, begin asking, “Is my name ________”.  Keep practicing these obvious questions until you feel confident you know your ‘yes’ and ‘no’ swing directions. 
When you are comfortable, begin asking questions you don’t know the answers to.  Your answers will be the truest when your mind is clear and your emotions are neutral.  This will take some practice and patience, but don’t be discouraged, eventually your answers will be consistent and correct. 
It is important to keep your pendulum free from negative energy, so smudge it with sage or incense, or leave it out under the moon to clear at regular intervals.
Enjoy your new pendulum!
