Using a crystal pendulum and how to get answers

Using a crystal pendulum; how to get answers!

In the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy the answer to the “big” question was 42! Although a pendulum wouldn’t give you this exact number it could give a yes, no or don’t know/unsure response if you ask your questions carefully!

First you need to cleanse and prepare your pendulum. So if choosing a pendulum hold it in your hand and let it dangle, ask for it to show you “yes” and “no” and “unsure”. These movements are usually anti/clockwise, left/right/or wobble/a line for unsure etc. Usually whatever the “Yes” is, the “No” will be the opposite ie if “yes” is clockwise then “no” usually anticlockwise. Then when you have your base ask if the pendulum will work with you. If it gives the motion for “yes”, then take to the till and get ready to go!!

Once you have chosen your pendulum it is important to treat it as any other crystal. It should be cleansed (as covered in my earlier blog), I usually run under water and charged in sun or moonlight before use. Then it needs to be programmed, so hold in your hand, centre yourself and ask for the pendulum to work with you for the highest good and give truthful answers as best it can. Then you are ready to go!

It is good at this point to do some more checks. all questions need to be closed yes/no questions. Questions could be “is my name x” “Do I have a son” or “Do I live in Newport”, include some “no” answers too. This will verify that the rotation or movement is correct and gives you confidence that the pendulum is “working correctly”.

It is important not to overwork the pendulum or you may find you start to sway the answers it gives by linking into your mind and hand movements. So be quick and focused. If you think you may be influencing the swing, then leave for a short time & clear your energies through nature, meditation etc and leave the pendulum somewhere on a window sill to charge.

I use my pendulum in many ways, I use it to verify my thoughts or feelings in a healing session or if umming on a purchase or event. I use it in my crystal therapies with clients to verify the crystal choice and when the crystal is ready to be removed, or if additional crystals are needed. It supports my own thoughts and actions as well as shows me energetic levels of chakras very visually.

I also hold it over cards such as angel cards or Labrys Ascension cards and narrow down the choice by small piles or spreading on the floor to choose a card for the day.

You can use your pendulum in many ways to support your psychic development, personal growth and confidence. Just remember to look after it and cleanse and charge regularly, especially if out in the public with it!

Enjoy your swinging pendulum!

The Spirit of Spirit Quartz



I have to admit to loving this amazingly shaped piece of spirit quartz, but although its been with me for some six years, its only now that I feel drawn to work with it. I feel that for the past six years my energies have not been at the right level to really communicate and work with this stunning spirit quartz. I do often find that I buy crystals in advance of being ready to use them, and then when I’m ready they pop out of my collection and into my mind!

The crystal itself has long candle-like points with the body covered in a multitude of small points. It is usually an amethyst-based crystal but some have been found in citrine and white quartz too. Amethyst itself is a great stone to work with to develop your psychic abilities, and spirit quartz has the same qualities but with more uummpf!

Spirit Quartz is a crystal that works on the crown and also the solar plexus, this is very interesting as it balances emotions (solar plexus) with the higher spiritual world (crown). By trusting in our feelings this allows our spiritual guidance to come through as clairsentience, which according to Doreen Virtue is the clair that is dominant in most people. By meditating with this spirit quartz it can help us form the links between our feelings and trust and turn these feelings of inner knowing, into an additional more spiritual sense.

The amethyst version of spirit quartz, which mine is, works with the aura and chakras to help create peace, balance and harmony. It can remove negative fears and entities, balance energy flow throughout the chakras, open the crown to allow more spiritual download and work with you to change this information into wisdom which can be used positively to move forward. It can release fears, particularly financial fears and release you from this burden of worry to focus more strongly on your path forward.

I am finding this crystal very supportive as I release old 3D limitations and move myself forward to the new world. It is highlighting attitudes which no longer serve me and strengthens my connection, by linking my clairsentience and third eye to my crown.

Wow! I wish I’d used this crystal sooner, but then I guess I just wasn’t ready for it until this very moment!

So don’t worry if you buy a crystal and don’t work with it for a while, you will in time, just knowing it’s there may be all you need for the time being.

Spirit Quartz I am ready for our journey together!

Healers Gold – a crystal so yummy!!



This blog is about the amazing crystal Healer’s Gold. It might seem strange to dive straight into this little known crystal, rather than clear quartz or rose quartz or citrine and build up to the more unusual. But chances are you’ve worked and played with those already, so something different! I discovered healer’s gold when a crystal guide opened on that page and I was instantly intrigued.

As a healer and crystal therapist I am always looking for ways to use crystals to benefit my intuition, protection and client healing release. You know that feeling when you see a crystal which you just know is going to be in tune with you – love at first sight! I use it for everything now!

As you may not have heard of healer’s gold, let me give you some information. It is a compound of pyrite and magnetite, mined in Arizona. It’s colours are mixture of gold and black, beautifully shiny and with a lovely heavy weight to hold. It is a healing grounding crystal of high-frequency energy, bringing energetic balance and harmony. It balances the male and female aspects, aligns the astral, causal and subtle bodies, activates lazy chakras and thus energises. It brings about a synergy between practitioner and client in a treatment.

I am an energy healer and use reiki in all forms of treatment that I do, so this earthy energy fits me snugly and I find it grounds and protects me, increases my intuition and helps the client to ground the healing being given. In my reflexology and massage it is always within the clients aura area and in reiki it is at the head, whilst for crystal therapy I tend to use it as the grounding stone. It works at all chakras, regardless of colours. When I channel information and do reiki attunements I find it soothing and smoothes the way for me to find the words and communicate true meaning that will be understood by the client.

As a crystal junkie I think I have found my sole mate crystal! Grounding, protection, enhanced intuition, chakra balancing and energising all in one! Who could want more?!

I’m off for a meditation with a piece now as a reward for all its hard work in this blog!!! I do have a small quantity of healer’s gold available to buy, so please contact me.

I highly recommend this fulfilling crystal
