I wonder if its my anxiety that draws me to the practice of Divination. The possibility of answers in all of this unknown. The unknown that my anxiety likes to take and run for miles with.
The simplest form of divination is using a Pendulum. The essence of it is to connect with one’s own intuition and subconscious to find answers.
So how does one choose a pendulum?
My gut made the choice for me. I guess a more eloquent way to describe it would be, my intuition guided me.
As I was out searching the stores for incense and candles. I was drawn to an Onyx faucet pendulum. As soon as I saw it amongst the others. I knew, it was coming home with me. It wasn’t in my budget, but I did not care. I had to have it!
As I reflected upon this choice. I decided to research the stone I was drawn too.
Onyx is a very strong protective stone, it calms the mind and energies. Which helps to relieve worry anxiety. (POINT ONE FOR INTUITION!) The zodiac associated with it, is Capricorn (I’m a Capricorn!), its element is earth, (the element I seem to connect most with), and lastly the chakra associated with it is the root chakra. (still learning about that stuff… one step at a time)
So, after all that, I came to the conclusion. My intuition deserves a high five!
I hope with my intuition being on point, this means divination will come easier to me.
I am still getting to know my pendulum and myself, asking simple questions so I can get to know how it responds. Small “Yes” when I asked if I was 24 years old. A big “No” before I even spoke the words “Do I have a pet snake?”… I am terrified of snakes… In case you were wondering…
I hope to soon try to illuminate my path ahead. But all good things take time.
Here are a few quotes I wish to leave you with; as we all search for answers, in prayer, meditation, the advice of a friend, or even with a pendulum.
“There are years that ask questions, and years that answer.” – Zora Neale Hurston
“In your hesitation, I found my answer.” – Unknown
“You will always find
the answer in your heart
where it has been waiting
since long before the question.”
