Clearing & Charging Your Pendulum

Every pendulum radiates and absorbs energy.  Regardless of your intent, your pendulum picks up positive and negative energy from the environment.  It needs to be cleared of this negative energy on a regular basis.  There are several methods you can use to clear your pendulum.
Smudge your pendulum with sage~ 

I included a package of white sage with your purchase.  
1.  you will need:  a fire safe container (glass or ceramic), white sage, a lighter, your pendulum.
2. light the sage in a fire safe container and blow out the flames.
3. the sage should continue to smoke.  
4. pass your pendulum slowly through the smoke of the sage at least 4-5 times. 

Smudge your pendulum with incense~

1.  light the incense and blow out the flame, the incense should continue to smoke.
2.  pass your pendulum slowly through the smoke at least 4-5 times.
3.  circle your pendulum from top to bottom with the incense. 
Clear your pendulum with a cleansing stone~

Place your pendulum in a pouch along with a citrine crystal for 24 hours undisturbed.  Citrine is a self cleansing stone that will clear other stones. 

Clear your pendulum with moonlight~

Set your pendulum on a windowsill during the Full Moon or New Moon and let it sit over night.  Not only does it clear the negative energy form your pendulum, but it charges your pendulum with positive energy at the same time.  Don’t worry if it is overcast, your pendulum will still clear and charge.  Similar to the ocean tides which feel the pull of the moon even if it is cloudy or stormy.

I recommend clearing your pendulum every month.  If your pendulum becomes sluggish or erratic it might need cleared more often.

How To Use Your Pendulum

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.

Enjoy your new pendulum!
