What is a Pendulum Board?
A pendulum board is a tool that consists of a board with letters, numbers, and symbols on it. The board is used in conjunction with a pendulum, a small object suspended from a string or chain.
The pendulum is held above the board, and the user asks a question or makes a statement. The pendulum then begins to move, spelling out the answer on the board.
The History of Pendulum Boards
Pendulum boards have been used for centuries in various cultures and civilizations. The ancient Egyptians, for example, used pendulum boards to communicate with the gods and to make important decisions.
The ancient Chinese used pendulum boards to find underground water and minerals.
In medieval Europe, pendulum boards were known as dowsing boards and were used for similar purposes.
During the 19th century, pendulum boards gained popularity in the United States and Europe as a tool for divination and spirit communication. At this time, the term Ouija board was first used.
Understanding the Mechanics of a Pendulum Board
To understand how a pendulum board works, it’s important to understand the mechanics behind the pendulum itself. A pendulum is a small object, such as a crystal or a ring on a string, that is suspended from a fixed point.
When the pendulum is held above the board, and a question is asked, the pendulum begins to move in response to the question. This movement is known as dowsing, the process by which the pendulum spells out the answer on the board.
How to Make Your Own Pendulum Board
Making your pendulum board is a simple process that doesn’t require special skills or tools. You will need a few basic materials, such as wood, a pen or marker, and a pendulum.
- Start by selecting a piece of wood that is large enough to accommodate the letters, numbers, and symbols you want to include on your board.
- Draw the letters, numbers, and symbols on the board using a pen or marker. Make sure they are evenly spaced and visible.
- Once the board is complete, it’s time to personalize it. This is fun as you add your unique touch to your board. Whether you want to paint it, decorate it with stickers, or add special symbols and imagery, the possibilities are endless.
- Once your board is complete, it’s time to test it out. Hold your pendulum above the board and ask it a question. If the pendulum starts to move, it means the board is working correctly.
Tips for Using Your Pendulum Board
