Crystal healing pendants can help you measure the flow of electromagnetic energy around the body. Healers often use crystal pendants to detect energy blocks in the chakras. The movement of the pendulum indicates whether or not a chakra is functioning properly.

In a typical crystal healing session the therapist or healer holds the pendulum over each chakra point, and the flow of energy through that chakra causes the pendant to swing. If the pendulum swings in a wide motion, it means the chakra is open; conversely, if doesn’t swing at all it indicates the chakra is closed. Limited swinging motion of the pendulum is a sign of a partially blocked chakra. Most therapists use their intuition to decide whether or not an open chakra needs grounding. If the chakras are closed or partially blocked, relevant crystals are used to expand and ground them.

If you wish to use a crystal healing pendulum to check your own chakras, hold the string of the pendulum lightly between your thumb and forefinger as you hold it over your chakra points, remembering to keep your wrist relaxed.

Healing pendants can also be used to find out if energy patterns are enclosed as well as open areas like rooms, houses and gardens. The swing of the pendant can tell you which areas have negative energy concentrations or where all do you need to re-balance energy. You may use either Reiki techniques to correct the energy balance or place a crystal like lapis lazuli, citrine or onyx, etc., in the area to infuse it with positive energy.

Crystal pendants are also often used by hypnotherapists who work with children, as they can help in relaxing a child’s hyperactive mind and put her in a trance-like state. Most therapists find pendulums more effective than guided meditation for healing children through hypnotherapy.

Healing pedants typically use clear quartz, amethyst or lapis lazuli crystals. To choose the one that will work best for you, you need to follow the voice of your intuition. When you visit a crystal store to buy a pendulum, look around to see which pendulum draws you towards it or attracts you the most; that, perhaps, is the best way to listen to your intuitive guidance.

Until next time, embrace your inner wisdom.
