Whenever rose quartz is mentioned, I’m pretty sure there’s always one word that comes to mind: love.
Yes, this beautiful, soft pink crystal is often associated with love and relationships.
You can even say that rose quartz is the mother of all heart spaces, whether that’s a heart space for yourself or for someone else. It’s the go-to crystal for everyone — and I mean everyone — who wants guidance and clarity when it comes to matters of the heart.
You’ll usually find rose quartz in its natural crystal form inside the bedroom or a specific spot in the house where love and harmony are needed.
Many people also use rose quartz as an accessory, such as a necklace or bracelet, so they can keep it close to their person. For those who truly want to experience its loving guidance, their rose quartz comes in the form of a pendulum.
Before we dive into what a rose quartz pendulum is used for, let’s first take a quick look at what exactly a pendulum is.
In its simplest terms, a pendulum is a symmetrical, weighted object tied to the end of a string, rope, or chain. Think of it as similar to a pendant — except this isn’t something you wear as a necklace.
Typically, pendulums are used as tools for divination as they can offer spiritual guidance, help answer questions, and even cleanse negative energy. The way it works is that when you ask it a question, the weighted object will swing in a particular direction according to the answer it deems correct.
Crystals work perfectly as the weighted object of a pendulum because they already have their own innate spiritual frequency and power. In fact, crystal pendulums are often thought of as physical manifestations of our higher selves or a representation of our sixth sense.
When it comes to rose quartz, its energy is connected to our heart chakra, so using this crystal as a pendulum will help you gain answers about love and compassion, as well as forgiveness, empathy, and reconciliation — with ourselves and with others.
Now that you have an idea of what pendulums are, we can move on to another important question: what is a rose quartz pendulum used for?
As mentioned, pendulums are used as a tool for divination, and the specific technique for this is called “dowsing.” Dowsing is when you search for the unseen, and the pendulum acts as a pointer toward a “yes” or “no” answer. Similarly, dowsing is also the term used for finding water sources.
You commonly use a dowsing rod for finding water.
When you use a rose quartz pendulum for dowsing as divination, the crystal connects with your intuition and intentions.
This allows the crystal to bring forth the truths that you have stashed away deep inside your heart. Most of the time, you might be experiencing a lot of mental and emotional noise that keeps you from discovering the right solutions to your problems.
A rose quartz pendulum works to promote harmony, so you can make sense of the chaos and arrive at an answer.
On a deeper, more spiritual level, a rose quartz pendulum doesn’t only connect with your intuition — it also connects with your guardian angels, spirit guides, and other invisible forces and energies coming from the Universe.
Through this, you can eventually achieve inner healing, calm, harmony, and trust.
As with any crystal, cleansing should be your first order of business before you decide to use your rose quartz pendulum. This will assure you that there are no negative energies stored in the crystal, which can affect how it works.
Aside from smudging, you can cleanse your rose quartz pendulum with water, moonlight, or with a little bit of sun. You can also bury it underneath soil or surround it with other crystals.
For best results, make sure that your mind, body, and spirit are also cleansed, so you can deepen your connection with your rose quartz pendulum.
Like I mentioned, pendulums give “yes” or “no” answers, so be sure to ask clear yes-or-no questions once you’re ready. It’s important to remember that you need to give yourself time to really feel that question. After all, your rose quartz pendulum taps into your energy, which can undergo fluctuations.
Don’t be surprised if you get different answers depending on your energy. This might just mean that you need to focus your energy better on the question, so your rose quartz pendulum isn’t picking up scattered or shifting energy. This is where cleansing and centering yourself becomes crucial.
Before asking your pendulum a question, hold it first in the palm of your hand. Give it a few moments.
Then, ask simple test questions so you can determine which direction means “yes” and which direction means “no.” Otherwise, you can program your pendulum and tell it what direction should correspond to a “yes” or a “no.”
Then, hold your pendulum between your thumb and index finger. Use your dominant hand. Stay very still, so you can clearly see which direction it moves once you’ve asked your question.
As you can see, it’s pretty easy to use a rose quartz pendulum. They help you to connect with your higher self and seek out invisible truths in your heart. To make it work, you ask clear and focused “yes” or “no” questions.
Does it really work? It all depends on your energy, so make it a point to hone this to get consistent answers.
As always, crystals serve as guides, but nothing is set in stone. Use your rose quartz pendulum wisely, so you can fully experience the love and healing it promotes!
