I just want to clarify my opinion on using pendulums and angel cards:
I do use angels cards and do give readings if people ask for that… I usually get a very specific message and deliver that BEFORE I pull any cards. Every single time that I have gotten a message and then pulled cards, the cards reiterate almost exactly what I have already said.
I don’t really know how I know to do it. I have never taken any training about tarot cards..and I don’t use anything that feels dark or is related to magick. Almost all of my cards are Doreen Virtue Angel Cards or Fairy Cards and I also clear and pray over them when I first get the new deck and also before each use. I know the cards are not necessary to give a reading, but it’s like being in an office and having favorite kinds of ink pens in all different colors… does that make sense? I could totally use a pencil (just give a reading) but why would I only use one old boring pencil, when I can use a variety of colored pens? (use the cards to enhance the reading.)
As far as using a pendulum, a few years ago I came across a small pamphlet type thing about the pendulum and the bible..anyway…I had bought a pendulum and never used it until I came across that little book.
Then I decided to pray about it. In prayer one day the angels showed me how to incorporate it into chakra balancing and healing….. It helps me “gauge” the energy flow as I do healing work.. when the pendulum is moving it is either pulling out negative energy or filling up with divine light.
I was asked about one specific situation when someone saw me using a pendulum. I was asked why I was using “tricks” … Don’t feel I was using tricks. I feel like I was using the pendulum as a tool when I’m doing energy healing.
What she saw was basically removing negative energy from that person…I don’t know why or how to explain it….I just HAD to do a healing on him. Whether he was Christian or not I can’t remember but I don’t think it matters. I needed to help him clear that negative energy. In some circumstances you can even call it demons … I don’t know how to explain what I do… I basically ask Jesus and the angels to come in and do healing and to banish the demons or the negative energy or old stagnant emotions or whatever it is that needs cleared … The pendulum doesn’t really do anything… I have noticed it gives the person I’m working on validation about the energy that they feel flowing through their body… But I don’t make it move…it starts moving as I pray…
As always I encourage YOU to do what is right for YOU. If using pendulums doesn’t feel right or resonate with you don’t use it. Plain and simple.
If you are Christian and unsure what you think about this post, I would encourage you to look up the rod, the reed and the staff and how they were used in the Bible. As I’ve said about angel cards etc, the pendulum holds no power. God holds the power. The pendulum, or the reed is just the tool. More than anything it’s the intention behind how you are using it! Are you using it as a tool or a gauge? Or do you feel the pendulum itself has power? It’s just a rock on a string.
I could probably go on and on, but I think you see my point.
