Positioning - you, the chart, and the pendulum
Ideally, you want to sit up straight and if possible, put both feet flat on the floor. With the chart in front of you, on a flat surface, and the arrow pointing away from your body, grasp the top bead or fob of your pendulum between your thumb and forefinger and arch your wrist slightly. Hold pendulum directly over the “hinge point” of the chart (the spot shown by the arrow), about 1/2 inch above the chart’s surface. Steady your elbow (but not your hand) on the table and let the pendulum dangle directly above the chart’s hinge point.
Specify the source for your answers (such as your higher self). Decide on the question you want to ask and take a cleansing breath before proceeding. Ask a question that can be answered by letters, numbers, or percentages. (There are also minus and plus signs that you can use as indicators for subtract and add, or less and more.)
When asking questions that require the name of a person, place or thing, your pendulum will need to literally spell it out, so be prepared with a pencil and paper to write it down. Once you’ve asked the question, give your pendulum an opportunity to swing about freely as it looks into the matter. Don’t rush things. Allow your pendulum time to find the groove its looking for. When it answers your question, the pendulum will repeatedly slice the same wedge of the chart by swinging back and forth from the hinge point to the outer edge of the semi-circle. When this occurs, read the letter, number or percentage beneath this slicing swing. Write it down and repeat until the answer is complete.
During this process, if you aren’t sure when your pendulum is done, you can move off the side of the chart and with your pendulum programmed for yes/no answers, ask, “Are there more letters in this word?” Or, repeating out loud what you have written down so far, you can ask, “Is this the complete answer?” Depending on how you phrase your question, yes or no will tell you whether to continue gathering letters and/or numbers from the chart.
Sample questions that ask for words or letters:
Note: Be prepared to sound it out. Your pendulum (and/or its source) may not be a good at spelling, even if you personally are excellent at it. When the answer is unclear, just remember that you can move off to the side of the chart and ask yes/no clarification questions.
Sample questions that ask for percentages or numbers:
Using the middle ring of percentages, you could ask, "Show me the potential success rate for my new project (insert specific name of the endeavor here)?"
Using the inside ring of numbers, you could ask, "Of the one hundred invitations I mailed for (insert name of specific event), how many people are likely to actually attend?"
