How To Use a Pendulum for Contacting Spirits

I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of contacting spirits. I’m not exactly sure why, but there’s just something about it that really intrigues me. So, when I heard about using a pendulum to contact spirits, I was intrigued.

Using a pendulum is a fairly common method for contacting spirits, so I decided to try it out. Let me tell you, it worked! Not only was it easy to use, but I was able to contact several different spirits.

If you’re interested in trying this yourself, then keep reading to find out how to use a pendulum for contacting spirits.

What Is a Pendulum?

A “pendulum” consists of an object hanging from a string or chain (usually shaped like a crystal ball). The end that doesn’t hang from the chain should be pointy or sharp (so that it can easily and effortlessly penetrate the fabric of the Astral Dimension).

The length of the string should be approximately 40 centimeters long. Some people prefer a smaller/larger size, but this is what I’ve found to be quite effective personally.

The weight at the end should be quite small (less than one inch in diameter), and it has to be heavy enough that you can feel its weight pulling at your hand as it swings back and forth, but not too heavy! It’s all about practice. You’ll quickly know if your pendulum is “heavy” or “light” enough for you.

One of the most famous and common uses for a pendulum is dowsing. With this method, one holds on to the end of the cord and allows the weight or other feature of the dangling item to move freely to answer questions.

Dowsing can be used for finding water sources, hidden items such as gold or gems, as well as determining how strong the spiritual energy is at locations such as churches or haunted houses.

How To Use a Pendulum for Contacting Spirits

When most people think of divination tools, the first thing that comes to mind is a Tarot deck. However, there are many other options available for those looking to connect with the spirit world.

A pendulum is one such option and can be used for answering questions or obtaining guidance from beyond. Here’s how to use a pendulum for contacting spirits.

1. Find a Quiet, Private Place To Relax and Concentrate

Many people use a room with no distractions while others prefer to go outside to be more aware of their surrounding environments, such as natural sounds or breezes.

The best time is just before bed or in between activities when your mind is not too busy so that you can focus on your question and the answer from the pendulum.

At first, you may feel some disorientation or dizziness as your mind clears itself from the usual thoughts that pop up. Wait for this feeling to pass.

2. Hold the Pendulum

Hold the pendulum in your dominant hand with the chain resting on your palm. Use the index finger of your other hand to stabilize it in front of you. If you are right-handed, this will be most comfortable.

If you are left-handed, or would rather hold it with your left hand, simply turn the article around so that the photos and instructions appear as if you are looking at them with your right hand on the top.

3. Ask Questions

When contacting spirits, it is very important to ask appropriate questions. What you want to ask depends on what you believe, and it also helps determine how advanced a pendulum you should use.

A beginner could ask, “Is this person alive?” This would be acceptable for some people as it may be sufficient information that the answer is yes or no.

For more specific information, such as whether or not your friend who died ten years ago is still living, then a larger range of the planchette will need to be used. This can be done by altering the question: “Can I speak with (name here)?”

4. End the Communication With the Spirit

A serious problem arises when a person fails to end his communication with spirits as they come and go, even as he correctly begins each session by asking whether any spirits wish to communicate.

If this is not done, the door will be open for another spirit to come along uninvited and perhaps interfere with the ongoing communication.

More likely, if a person is open to receiving messages from other beings without realizing it, he may accept advice or information from these entities that are contrary to what the intended spirit actually wants him to know.

Other Uses for a Pendulum

Aside from contacting spirits, a pendulum is also used for various purposes. Some of them are:

  • Establishing whether or not someone is telling the truth (the weight will move only if the person is speaking truthfully)
  • Finding lost objects or people (the object of concern can be hung on one end of the string while you walk around with your eyes closed; when you get close enough to where you think you should start searching for the item, the pendulum should start to move and point you in the right direction)
  • Determining how strong or what type of energy is present at a location (such as a haunted house) by moving the pendulum over an area and observing how it moves. If it moves in a circular pattern, this indicates positive spiritual energy, while if it moves from side to side, this means negative spiritual energy.


The pendulum is a powerful divination tool that can connect you with deceased loved ones (or anyone else) if you believe it will. Using a pendulum for contacting spirits is one of the most amazing topics in the world of metaphysics. But, many people don’t know how to use a pendulum correctly, so they miss their chance to contact spirit guides.
