Lapis Lazuli is a stone of reflection and self knowledge. It activates the higher mind and psychic abilities and has traditionally been used to assist one in connecting with the gods and invoking divine inspiration. Lapis helps to create a clearer perspective on ones life and assists with the identification of habits, patterns or lessons that may be blocking ones spiritual progress. It can uncover the karmic roots of illness and highlight where one might be self sabotaging ones healing.
Pendulums are often used as tools for spiritual healing and inner growth. Pendulums are objects attached at the end of a string or metal chain. When suspended from a stationary position the pendulum will swing back and forth or in a circular motion.
This is because both crystals, gemstones, and metals tend to absorb energies and these energies could cloud or influence information. If you are using a crystal pendulum choose a method of cleansing or clearing your crystal prior to your divination session, be it for healing or dowsing for answers.
Holistic healers will use a pendulum for measuring energy fields or as a dowsing tool for divination purposes.
Cleanse Your Pendulum:
You may cleanse it by holding it under running cold tap water, soaking it in sea salt, or setting a mental intention to free it of ‘picked up energies.’
Understand the Directional Swings of Your Pendulum:
Pendulums swing in vertical straight lines, horizontal straight lines, and in circular movements.
Define the Directional Swings of Your Pendulum:
Assign each directional swing a “response” by first asking the pendulum to show you what certain responses look like. Ask: What does a NO look like? What does a YES look like?… and so on.
