Witch Kit Challenge Day 27

Hi everyone,

Yesterday we talked about creating a pendulum. Today we are going to create a pendulum board.

But first, let’s talk about how to use a pendulum. There are a lot of ways that you can use your pendulum but I guess the most basic way is to answer yes/no questions.

If you want to start using your pendulum you need clear your mind first. Make sure you feel relaxed and focused. Use anything you need to reach this state: music, incense, candles…


Sit straight and hold your chain between your thumb and forefinger. Leave some space between the pendulum’s weight and where your fingers are. Steady your arm on something steady, like a table and just let the pendulum dangle.


Now you need to program the pendulum. You need to decide what the signals are. Show the pendulum which movement you want if the answer is ‘yes’, do the same for ‘no’ and any other answers that you want to program. You do not have to do this every time you use your pendulum. If you do this one time it will be still be programmed the same way the next time you want to use it.


Now test your pendulum with asking basic questions that you know the answer to. If you don’t get the right signal, go back and reprogram the pendulum. The verification of the signals only has to happen once as well.
Ask your question and be patient to receive the answer. Once you have received your answer, touch your pendulum with your free hand or touch the table with it to let it know you are ready to move on to the next question. Make sure you ask clear yes/no questions.

You can also use your pendulum with a pendulum board. You can make one yourself or you can print the one that I have created for you. You can download it here.

Materials to make a pendulum board
Paper/cardboard
Pen/paint/markers

Take a sheet of paper, turn it landscape (or use a square piece of paper). At the top in the middle and the bottom in the middle you write ‘yes’. Then you write ‘no’ on the left and the right (middle edge). Between the left ‘no’ and top ‘yes’ you write ‘maybe’, between the top ‘yes’ and the right ‘no’, you write ‘unknown’. Opposite of the ‘maybe’ you write another ‘maybe’ and you do the same for the ‘unknown’. If this sounds complicated, just have a peak at the printable pendulum board I made.

You can make a quick pendulum board on a piece of paper, but you can make a more permanent one on cardboard/wood/… and paint it, decorate it…
