Pendulum doubts in Divination Posted October 13, 2017 I've found different methods and traditions have different fundamentals of how they work with the pendulum. As a result they seem to have different takes on involuntary movement. Some seem to rely on it others seem to avoid it. I talked a little about what I was taught about it in this conversation. http://www.traditionalwitch.net/forums/topic/11691-pendulums-do-they-work-for-you/page-3?hl=pendulum For some time now I've mainly used a hanging pendulum rather than holding one. Its just been convenient to work around. But I never hesitate to make one if I'm not at home. As for materials I often go for acorns or small pine cones and cordage. At home its a pendent I've had for many years. Seems to me its less about what it is made from and more about what works well with you and you relate with as a pendulum, rather than a bit of string and a sinker. I hope you find any of this helpful.
