Pendulum Necklace Rules

  • Understand the Swings Movements: Pendulums swing in vertical or horizontal lines, and in circular movements. This can be done side-by-side, front and back, clockwise, counterclockwise, or even up and down shake movements, which often indicate a strong affirmative action.
  • Define the Swing Movements: Assign to each swinging movement a response by first asking the pendulum to show you what certain responses look like. For example, start by asking, What does a NO look like? and subsequently, what does a YES look like? Asking these questions to your pendulum will help you define the swings’ movements. For example, Vertical swing signifies NO, Horizontal swing signifies YES, Circular movement signifies NEUTRAL
  • Prepare The Questions: A question should be one that can be answered with a positive, negative, or neutral response.
