Connecting To Our Higher Consciousness With A Pendulum
We all have the ability to access our intuitive capacities by using a
pendulum. Learning to use a pendulum is like learning any other
skill. It requires time, determination, trust, balance and persistent
practice. Given these, success can be expected. Every object, animate
or inanimate, gives off energetic radiation, and our expanded senses
can feel and measure these energies. The intuitive, or super-
conscious mind is the recipient of this information when we access
the bridge to it.
The pendulum is only a communication device between the conscious and
the subconscious mind. The pendulum itself does not gives you
answers. It is nothing more than an object to give you the means or
language to make conscious the Intuition. Successful use of a
pendulum is a matter of establishing a clear, precise and consistent
language between the two parts of the mind. The subconscious mind
takes all communications literally. It takes time for the
subconscious to understand what is expected of it and respond
accordingly. It is necessary to approach the pendulum with
enthusiasm, optimism and the confidence that you are able to use it.
It is an incredible skill that can allow you access to information,
knowledge and wisdom beyond all limitations.
How the Pendulum Works
The pendulum can be thought of as an extension of the intuition,
since it is used to gain access to information that exists at the
subconscious level of the Inner Being. It could be said that it
strengthens or amplifies the intuition because it converts the
subtleties of the intuition into a more obvious form of physical
motion. When you ask a question of the pendulum, it is your own
intuition that answers it. The pendulum merely allows you to
physically see what the intuition already knows. As an extension of
the intuition, the pendulum can give you information from the same
two sources as the intuition: from your own subconscious mind; and
from your guidance, spirit, or guardian angel. Because of how it
operates, the pendulum can only answer questions that are phrased so
that the answer is either "yes" or "no".
Connecting to Your Higher Self
Limited views and opinions are stifling. They detach us from reality,
decrease our awarenss and shut down our mind. We all have a limited
view of some areas of our lives. Gaining a broader perspective is
self awareness. Being able to open up your mind, allowing a free flow
of thoughts and ideas can be liberating. Welcoming a new opinion or
way of doing something can bring new meaning to your life. If you
give up your closed thoughts and make way for a different opinion,
you may be surprised at the outcome.
Striving to meet difficult goals has pushed us to stretch the
horizons of what we think is possible. We share the ways in which
obstacles and challenges have made us stronger, and given us
confidence to continue setting goals and dreams in our adventures,
our business, and in our day to day lives. This is conscious living.
You only want to work with your Higher Self. Any of your guides,
spirits and angels can go through your Higher Self. Start by speaking
to your spirits either aloud of in your head. Tuning in to any energy
is the ability to quiet the mind, allowing your inner self, or
intuition, to perceive truth. By practicing this art, we develop a
sensitivity toward inner information and the ability to condition our
mind to listen on a much more subtle level. This developing can give
us the ability to sense energy and actually perceive on an even more
Universal Symbols of Shape and Color
The following shapes and colors have a Universal meaning, yet in
almost every religion, culture and part of the world, they have their
own specific meaning to go along side these definitions. These shapes
are Universally recognized and play a part of our subconscious mind
in one way or another. The colors represent one general idealism; yet
can represent something entirely different if used in a different
Circle (ball): An ancient and universal symbol of unity, wholeness,
infinity, the goddess, and female power. A romantic attachment or
deep friendship and a sacred space. The circle symbolizes the sacred

Diamond (faceted): Because of its perfect symmetry, the diamond
vibrates toward harmony. This makes it an excellent shape for
meditation gardens or those used for culinary purposes. As this shape

family, home, and hearth. See pendulums in ths category.
Heart: generally, hearts represent love, but may also indicate a
romantic disposition. True love, happiness, financial gain, lasting
love, and love for other.
Hexagon: is a polygon with six edges and six vertices. The word
hexagon is derived from the Latin hexagnum, from Greek hexagnos,
having six angles. This hexagonal star is faceted and carved from
natural crystal. Use it for balancing Chakras, laying on problem
areas, creating a crystal grid, to amplify the power of your other
stones, power up your positive affirmations. Place this star in any
room where you want to create a balanced, healthy environment. See
pendulums in ths category.
Octagon: Eight denotes the intermediary region between earth and
heaven or, microcosm, between body and spirit; and the octagon is a
symbol of the "best" part of psychic substance that is the vehicle of
spiritual light. The octagon expresses the nearness to heaven of the
psychic elements in question, and by being almost circular in form it
expresses their all but spiritual nature.
Oval: This voluptuous and feminine shape not only represents
completeness, but is also a symbol of the infinite. It conjures up
the idea of wisdom and the power of longevity and for all eternity.

asymmetrical stars suggest excess energy. A sign of hope, love, joy
and prosperity, protection against fires, good fortune, hope, love,
fertility, energy and harmony. The unique qualities of the star
(merkaba) are the divine light vehicle used by ascended masters to
connect with those in tune with the higher realms. "Mer" means
Light. "Ka" means Spirit. "Ba" means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the
spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, (wheels
within wheels), spirals of energy as in DNA, which transports
spirit/body from one dimension to another. See pendulums in ths
Triangle (pyramid): Associated with the number three. Pointing
upwards, it symbolizes fire, male power, good luck; Pointing down, it
symbolizes water, female sexuality, goddess, religions, take care.
Combination Ball and Triangle: energy point with ball adds both the
element of a point, which vibrates toward harmony and the Universal
symbol of unity. This makes it an excellent shape for meditation
gardens or those used for culinary purposes. As this shape also

ancient and universal symbol of unity, wholeness, infinity, the
goddess, and female power. See pendulums in ths category.
