What does a pendulum do?

The pendulum, powered by barely discernible unconscious physical movements, gives you visible information from your unconscious. This is immensely valuable. Your unconscious is extremely knowledgeable and has a lot of information that you don't have direct conscious access to. But your unconscious doesn't know everything, and it won't tell you everything it knows. In addition, it's not some homunculus that can be your companion or adviser.

Your unconscious is part of your body; it has intelligence and knowledge but, contrary to what is generally thought, it's not a mind. It doesn't think. It's not easy to describe because there's no model for it. But if you think - as some people apparently do - that it's some kind of super intelligence, you're going to be disappointed with the results you get from using the pendulum.

The pendulum (that is, your unconscious) will give a (yes or no) answer to any question you pose: the lottery numbers; the date of your death; how many lives you've had; the size of the universe. But this doesn't mean the answers are true. Your unconscious, through the pendulum, will give you accurate, reliable and valuable responses, in response to the right questions. If you ask the wrong questions, you'll get phoney answers and you'll quickly become disillusioned.

By asking the right questions, you'll have a fantastic resource for life that will help you to identify and resolve your problems.

So what are the right and wrong questions?

Wrong questions

First, the wrong questions. Don't ask the pendulum to confirm, refute or provide historical facts. If you ask about historical facts you will get answers, but they won't be reliable.

Sometimes it won't want you to know consciously, so won't tell you. At other times, it won't know the answer. If the event in question was some time ago and you can't remember it, it's likely that your body doesn't want you to know. If you were too young to remember, your body may not know or be able to understand the historical details. The pendulum's answers to questions about such events are likely to be false. In any case, you won't know whether or not they are true.

Asking these questions may cause unnecessary and unwarranted distress. So: don't ask the pendulum to give you facts.

Second, generally speaking, don't ask the pendulum more than once. A client once told me that she kept asking the same question until the pendulum gave her the answer she wanted. That's just daft. Don't waste your time; your unconscious body doesn't like it. Trust the answer it gives you to an acceptable question. If you get a nonsensical answer, you probably shouldn't have asked the question.

Third, don't attempt to rely on the pendulum to tell you what to do. Your behaviour is in the control of your conscious mind. That's how it should be. Don't attempt to abdicate responsibility for your actions. Whatever choices you make, make them consciously. So don't ask the pendulum which course of action to take or what to do in any situation.

Good questions

Using the pendulum to identify and resolve your therapeutic issues is one of the best ways your pendulum can help you..

Your body may not know facts or may not want to reveal them, but it does know subjectively what the problem is, where it came from, and how you can resolve them.

The first question to ask, when you have any doubts, is whether you have permission for what you're about to do with the pendulum. If the pendulum says you don't have permission, don't go there. Or find out what you need to do first.

You also need to be very careful about how you word questions. You can't get a clear answer to a vaguely worded question. Providing you're not asking a fact-based question, and you have permission from your body via the pendulum to ask the question, then questions that relate to your health and wellbeing your body will be very pleased to answer accurately and reliably.

It's fine to ask whether changing your diet (or any other practice) will help the health of your heart (or any other organ); and then to find out which foods you should and shouldn't be eating (or other practice you should or shouldn't be doing). It's not a good idea to ask if your heart (or other organ) is diseased (for example). Not only could you find the answer distressing, but you wouldn't even know what the answer really means.

Providing you get permission for your enquiry, it's likely that your enquiry is permissible. It's also fine to ask whether there's a trauma at your birth (or at any other time), to establish the nature of the problem and then find out the best way to resolve it. It's not helpful and would not be reliable to try to find out historical factual details.

Other great uses of the pendulum

There are very many. Here are some suggestions:

  • What foods would be best for you now
  • What foods to avoid
  • What substances you're allergic or sensitive to
  • What exercises would help you (in particular with regard to recovery from injuries)
  • Which emotions you're denying
  • Whether you're drinking enough water for optimum health
  • What your stressors are and their degree of stress
  • How stressed you are
  • What choices will reduce stress and improve health

Kinesiology & the pendulum

Be careful that you don't get the result that you desire from the pendulum rather than the result that your body wants to give you. Avoid having an answer in mind. Many users of the pendulum find this to be a particular problem: that the pendulum tells them the answer they want to get.

If your use of the pendulum is consistent with the suggestions made here, you're much more likely to get consistent and reliable results. Perhaps one of the most valuable consequences of using the pendulum is getting in touch with your body and your intuition, and learning to trust it. Your body knows what's best for your health and happiness. The exigencies of modern life can radically disconnect us from the body and its wisdom. The more in contact with your body you are, the happier and healthier you will be. The pendulum is a great way of re-establishing this contact.
