What protection to use using a pendulum?

Post by theusak »

I hear a lot of people talking about how you should use protection when using a pendulum, but... What exactly, how? The most detail I found was to "cover your bases", but I'm new to this, I don't even know what the bases are. Help?

I don't know a specific protection for using with a pendulum. I would think of using protection for myself (while using the pendulum), so as to keep out distracting / negative influences.

Protection is quite a big field in itself, well worth looking into. I'd say fundamental stuff like clearing your space, centering, grounding, clearing your mind and maybe asking your bound spirits for protection and help with the pendulum session are good things to be able to do.

Quite a few forum members find the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram a good thing to use. You can use that to clear a space and raise protection before a session and to clear things and close down at the end of it.

Sometimes I hear a thousand twanging instruments hum at my ears, and sometimes voices that send me back to sleep even if I had just woken up—and then I dreamed of clouds opening up and dropping such riches on me that when I woke up, I cried because I wanted to dream again.

...and members have often warned here against placing too much emphasis on what answers you think your getting, especially as a beginner pendulum user. Certainly to not base any life changing decisions on them. And probably not ask too searching deep questions about yourself or your life. With a pendulum it's easy to find oneself reading one's own mental processes. Yes/ No questions on dramatic potential scenarios can easily lead a pendulum user into a sense of panic.

In my opinion it's good to take it slowly and easily. Stay calm. Don't panic. Use a healthy dose of skepticism - while remaining open minded, if that makes sense. Until you hit that groove of 'getting' it, when you know you're getting good results.

Still...even a very good pendulum user will not be infallible, which is why it's important to always keep a good sense of perspective.

If you mean protection specifically for a pendulum instead of yourself and the area, perhaps consider consecrating the pendulum. I consider pendulums as sacred objects which means I consecrate them. During consecration, I mentioned to the effect of protecting the pendulum from any and all energy interference. That includes myself, the keep and any others who won't be able to influence a pendulum unless one specific entity is invited for a session. Other than that, I don't concern myself with protection while dowsing with a pendulum. The consecration keeps the pendulum from turning wonky.
