How to Use Your Pendulum to Cleanse Divination Cards

Using divination cards (such as Tarot, Oracle, Angel, Goddess, Fairy, etc.) are wonderful ways to achieve tremendous clarity, insight, and wisdom. Cards are like many things in our physical world - each time we touch them they absorb our energy and the energy of the environment. And after a while, the energy build-up may hinder or skew the cards' readings or results. Here's a way to easily reset or "cleanse" the energy in your cards by using your pendulum.

Note: Any pendulum will work, though ones made from amethyst, quartz, hematite, carnelian, and citrine may be best for this purpose.

For this task, you'll need a pendulum and your deck of cards. The pendulum does not need to be programmed but it does need to be cleansed before and after.

To begin - Fan the cards out, face-up, across a flat surface. Hold your cleansed pendulum so that the suspended weight-stone is just about 2 inches above the cards. Give the pendulum a swing so that it has a side-to-side motion. Keeping this sideways swing going, slowly move the pendulum all the way across the fanned out cards. As you do this, envision the pendulum's movement casting a shimmering, cleansing white light across and through the cards. When you reach the end of the deck, you're done! Cleanse the pendulum afterwards so it is ready to go again. Repeat as often as you feel necessary. If your cards get a heavy workout, you will want to do this frequently.
