Pendulum Divination Part III: How to Clear Daily Hassles with Your Pendulum

In the previous articles in this series, we covered how to make your own pendulum and how to train your pendulum for pendulum divination. There are many things you can do with pendulum divination. One is to clear hassles out of your life.

Pendulum Divination: To Clear or Not To Clear
First you need to determine if the situation is one that you should clear. It could be that there is a life lesson that is very important for you to learn and that is why the situation exists. By consulting the pendulum you are accessing information from higher powers that can see the overall picture and let you know if this situation should be cleared or not. To do this let your pendulum hang from your dominant hand while you visualize the problem you want to clear. Then ask your pendulum, "Can I, may I, should I clear this situation?" If you get a yes answer, proceed to the clearing. Here's how.


Pendulum Divination: Clearing Hassles
1. Swing the pendulum in a counter clockwise direction. This is the direction of unwinding. Ask for the situation you visualize to be cleared and in your mind's eye, see the situation resolving. When requesting the situation be cleared, be very specific as to what the situation is and what you see in regards to the situation being resolved.

2. Keep focusing on clearing the situation until the pendulum stops spinning counter clockwise. The pendulum will then either begin swinging on a vertical or a horizontal axis, or it will stop, or it will begin swinging in a clockwise direction.

3. Once the pendulum stops swinging in the counter clockwise direction on its own, then the hassle is cleared.

Pendulum Divination: Moving On
Of course once your problem or hassle is cleared you can always bring it back by worrying about it too much. To keep this from happening, trust your pendulum divination and clearing and your intent and switch your focus to something else. In other words, let it go and move on to other things in your life.

You can use this same technique to clear repetitive thoughts that you are having. Just hold the repetitive thought in your mind instead of visualizing a situation and ask the pendulum to clear the thought from your life. It may not go away completely at first, but will come less and less often until after a time it does go away.

Now that you know how to make a pendulum, train it and clear hassles from your life with it, find out more ways to use pendulum divination in our Kindle book Learn How to Do Witchcraft Rituals and Spells with Magical Tools and continue your journey into pendulum divination magic.

Pendulum Divination Part II: How to Train Your Pendulum

In our previous article in this series on pendulum divination, we covered how to make your own pendulum. We continue now with how to train your pendulum for use in pendulum divination.

Pendulum Divination: Cleansing the Pendulum
First you must cleanse your new pendulum with smoke from a charged cedar or sage smudge stick. To charge your smudge stick, sit in the South facing North. Use paper or wooden matches to light the stick. Once it is producing a thick, dense column of smoke say the following verse in a voice of command:

"Fire and Air where you are cast,
Let no spell nor adverse purpose last,
Not in accord with me!
Cleanse this tool and cleanse its space,
Far from here send baneful trace!"
Hold your pendulum in the smoke and keep it there until smoke sticks to all parts of the pendulum. You have magically cleansed your pendulum when the smoke is sticking to the pendulum. If the object you used to make the pendulum has a lot of junky energy, it can take as much as 5 minutes for this to happen, so just be patient.

Pendulum Divination: Keying the Pendulum
The next step is to key your pendulum to your own energies. To do this hold it in your dominant hand. This would be the hand that you would naturally point with. Flow energy into the pendulum for a minute or two. You will know it is keyed when it feels warm and tingly.

Pendulum Divination: Training the Pendulum
The first step in the actual training of your pendulum is to establish the direction it will swing for the answer "yes" and for the answer "no". Decide if "yes" will be an up/down swing or a left/right swing. Whichever you decide for "yes" the opposite swing will be "no".

Sit in a comfortable position and hold your pendulum hanging from your dominant hand. The chain or string it is on must be long enough for it to swing freely. Place your elbows on a table or your knee to stabilize your hand.

Now swing the pendulum gently in a clockwise circle and say out loud, "Show me yes." Wait until the pendulum stops moving in a circle and begins to swing back and forth in the direction you picked to designate "yes". If it doesn't, then ask again. Once it is swinging in the selected direction consistently, do this step again asking for it to show you the direction for "no".

Pendulum Divination: Practice Getting Answers From Your Pendulum
You can now continue the training by moving into asking simple yes/no questions about future events that you can easily verify within 15 – 30 minutes. For example you might ask, "Will my friend Ann call me in the next 20 minutes?" Wait and verify the answer the pendulum gives you, then ask another question.

Remember that you are in the stage of training your pendulum at this point so don't get too caught up in whether the answers given are correct or not. The more you do pendulum divination, the more accurate your pendulum will become. Just keep asking those yes/no questions that can be verified within a short time period until you start seeing consistently accurate answers.

The next article in this series will cover how to clear out daily hassles with your pendulum, so stay tuned. If you just can't wait, you can find all this material on pendulums in our Kindle book entitled, Learn How to Do Witchcraft Rituals and Spells with Magical Tools. And remember you can read Kindle books on your regular computer or Smart Phone if you don't have a Kindle.

Pendulum Divination Part I: How to Make Your Own Pendulum

Pendulum divination is a great magical technique for accessing information from the Universe and unlocking your own native wisdom. A pendulum is a magical tool that consists of a lightweight object suspended from a string or chain. It becomes a natural extension of yourself and as long as you know the right questions to ask, you can get any and all information that exists in the Universe. Pendulum divination can be used for dowsing as well as to answer your questions

Making a Pendulum
You can certainly buy a pendulum from a new age store or many sources on the internet, but you can also make your own just as easily. First you need a lightweight object. A paper clip, earring, pendant or talisman can all work for this. You can also use a small crystal. The best crystal to use is an amethyst crystal. Just be sure to store any crystal you use in a pewter box. This will protect it from taking on negative energy. Do not use Aurora crystals treated with petroleum as these do not work well.

Next you need something to hang the pendulum on that will allow it to swing. This could be a chain, a string of natural fiber like cotton or silk or leather. If you use a metal chain, silver is the best as it is the most magically stable metal.

In the next article in this series, we'll talk about how to train your pendulum, so stay tuned. If you can't wait, check out our Kindle Book on Amazon.com entitled Learn How To Do Witchcraft Rituals and Spells With Magical Tools. You'll find all this information and more about pendulums there.

Develop Psychic Abilities: The Power of Changing One Tiny Habit

When you first start working to develop psychic abilities, here's a tip that will pave the way for you. This is just one of the tips and exercises you'll find in our Psychic Development ebook. When you are ready to develop psychic abilities or really anytime you want to get out of mechanical mode, choose one small habit to change. Sound simple? It is, but also very powerful in working towards the goal to develop psychic abilities and developing consciousness.

How It Works
How does such a simple change make such a difference when striving to develop psychic abilities? Well, first there is a Universal Law that says, "A small change in the present will create a larger change in the future". When you change a small life habit now, you pave the way for larger changes in your future. You open yourself to a whole new world of ideas and inspirations when you start by changing your habitual thought patterns. Also small changes keep you from running into the resistance factor.

Changing Habitual Thought Patterns
If you follow the metaphysical teacher Abraham-Hicks (www.abraham-hicks.com), then you've heard that the thoughts and feelings you have right now affect your ability to access certain thoughts and feelings. In other words, if you are happy now, you can access more happy thoughts. If you are sad, you are more likely to access more sad thoughts. By changing where you are in your thoughts and emotions just a degree or two, you make it possible to access new thoughts and feelings. Any tiny change creates a shift in you and in what you think and feel. This is why Abraham says when you are down, to just try reaching for the next happier thought. It is usually too overwhelming to go from really sad to really happy in just one step, but if you take baby steps and just reach over a little in tone to one just a bit higher then you have shifted your internal mood and can keep going up the scale towards happy.

Avoid the Resistance Factor
You'll find as you develop psychic abilities that your mind often gets in your way. It tries to keep control and tell you all sorts of things from that you are just making stuff up to having doubts about receiving information through spirit perceptics. You are making a big change by going from accessing information via your 5 physical senses to accessing information via numerous spirit senses. When you start to work to develop psychic abilities, you are making a big change, so pre-paving the way by making some small changes can help reduce the resistance mind puts up. Think about if your dad who is a pretty conservative type guy with a short regular "Dad" type haircut suddenly walked in with a purple and green Mohawk. Think of the resistance he would encounter to this big change. It would probably affect his job, his standing in the community or church and probably even how his family would react to him. He would probably experience feeling awkward, embarrassed, and the target of unwanted attention. But now imagine he walks in and just has moved his pinkie ring from his right hand to his left hand. Hardly anyone will notice that. Wouldn't be much resistance put up to such a small change as that. But, he will notice it. It will feel different to him and this difference can help shift him to another place inside himself.

Small Changes to Make
When we talk about making these small changes, we are talking about very simple habitual things that you do mechanically. For example, observe yourself when you eat, drink, brush your teeth, remove your shoes, reach for the phone, open the door and hundreds of other simple things we all do every day with our hands. What hand do you use without even thinking about it when you do these simple tasks? Now consciously switch and use your other hand. So if you open the door with your right hand, start making the conscious effort to open it with your left hand. Pick several things to start consciously changing. Don't let this get mechanical though too. Change things up if they start to feel that way and pick another set of tasks to change how you do them.

Other changes could be sitting in a different place at the table, driving a different way to work, wearing socks inside out, get up on the other side of the bed, move your alarm clock to a different place, go a different direction when you start your morning walk, wear your bracelet on the opposite arm, etc.. You get the idea, right? See what things in your life you can use to make these small changes, pick one and get started paving the way to develop psychic abilities in yourself.

The Practice of Magic: Why Bother? Here's Why!

Maybe you have a busy, rewarding life with a great relationship and all the money you could want, so why bother with the practice of magic? Magic isn't just about manifesting the things you want in life, it is also about spiritual development, evolving as a human being, and making the most of your time on the planet during this lifetime. The practice of magic can bring you closer to spiritual influences, help you understand yourself better, give you ways to change those things you want to change and be in control of the various archetypes that rule you. The practice of magic is an introduction to a way of living in consciousness rather than rushing through our lives unaware. Here are a few more specific reasons from the first book in our Witchcraft Spell Books Kindle book series, entitled LEARN HOW TO DO WITCHCRAFT RITUALS AND SPELLS WITH YOUR BARE HANDS, to take up the practice of magic.

1. Most people are wrapped up in their To Do lists and everyday mundane tasks. In a sense they are like robots plodding through their days running from one "have to do" to another. The practice of magic can help break us out of robot-mode giving us a way to pause in the day and come from a place of consciousness. This allows us to become aware of who we are, where we are and what our aims are. Consciously performing spells and rituals prevent us from going through life in a purely mechanical state.

2. The practice of magic allows us to stay connected to Spirit which is essential to attracting what we really want in life. Taking the time to quiet the mind, perform daily rituals or get in touch with physical sensation brings us into contact with Spirit. The practice of magic gives us the opportunity to be conscious of all this and take the time to make it a priority in our lives.

3. Becoming a co-creator with the Universe in manifesting what we want in life is another benefit of the practice of magic. We also learn how to connect with and work with higher powers and beings to get help with anything we want help with.

4. When we go through life in the robot state, we tend to be in reactionary mode. That means we are not choosing our thoughts and actions, rather just reacting to stimuli around us. The practice of magic can help keep us on a path of conscious choice and remind us what we really want in life.

5. One benefit I find in the practice of magic is that it helps me be better in understanding and dealing with people. Being versed in the characteristics of the 4 elements, I am able to ascertain which elements a person is exhibiting and which elements I can employ to interact with them for mutual benefit. For example, if I am dealing with an angry person, I know they are high in the fire element. By using a tone of voice full of earth tones, I can damp out the person's fire so that we can now have a rational discussion and find solutions instead of standing around yelling at each other.

These are just a few reasons I can see to engage in the practice of magic. We'd love to hear some of yours. Leave a comment below or on our Facebook page and let the magic begin!

Online Magic Tip: Your One Hand Knows Secrets Your Other Hand Doesn't

Here's a handy online magic tip that is just one of the many you'll find in the second book in our Witchcraft Spell Books Kindle books series entitled Learn How to Do Witchcraft Rituals and Spells with Household Ingredients. This online magic tip helps you in getting information from the Universe which as a planetary citizen you have every right to access. A little spiritual guidance or help from higher powers and beings can help you even get information that is stored in the Akashic Records (records of Universal history).

How Accessing Information Helps You
First, why would you want to access this type of information and how will it help you? Mainly this type of information can make your life's journey easier. Your daily life can become much more enjoyable the more you ask for help and information from angels, guides, animal totems or your own Spirit. Whereas Mind tends to tell us things that have been tainted by society and many misperceptions, Spirit always gives us truth and doesn't lead us astray.

Left Hand, Right Hand Ritual
This online magic tip ritual we call the Left Hand, Right Hand Ritual makes you a channel for the information you need or want to access. Basically you ask yourself questions with your dominant hand and answer them with your other hand. To do this online magic tip, follow these steps:

1. Get a compass to find the cardinal direction East. For this ritual you will sit in the East facing West, so it is important to make sure you have the correct direction identified. East is the direction of knowledge and communication so sitting in the East will facilitate this communication ritual and help you access knowledge.

2. You will also need a table put in front of where you will be sitting. On this table you will need a Sun Yellow candle, wooden or paper matches, and a pen and paper. You could use a journal or Book of Shadows for the paper if you wish.

3. Once you have everything ready from Steps 1 and 2, sit comfortably in the East facing West and light the candle and charge it with the Sun Candle Blessing ritual.

4. The hand you naturally point with is considered your dominant hand. Use this hand to write your question or questions that you are seeking information about. For example, you may have just gone through a traumatic event and you might write, "What lesson am I to learn from (describe your current event or situation)?

5. Now switch the pen to your other hand and write the answer. It doesn't matter what the writing looks like as long as it is legible to you so don't spend time worrying about that. Also don't stop to think about the answer. Just write the first thing that your hand feels inspired to write.

6. Sometimes you may be surprised at the answer or the answer may not make sense to you. Don't try to force sense from it. Keep the answer in your consciousness for a few days and see what happens. It may be that you have only received a partial answer so that it will be easier to digest and other things will come up to fill in blanks.

You can repeat this online magic tip ritual as many days as you need to until you get all the information you need. Be patient with the process and enjoy watching the knowledge and understanding unfold and the results become clearer. Your answers will come in perfect timing with your ability to process and use them.

Magic 2013: As the World Wobbles

Have you noticed lately how things in the world are strange, funky, and otherwise just plain hinky? Maybe you are suddenly accident-prone or suffering from strange new health problems. Or maybe business has suddenly taken a funny turn. Perhaps relationships that have been solid for years are all of sudden on the fritz.

So what in the heck is going on here? After all, 2012 is over... it is supposed to be smooth sailing from here on out, right? Maybe, or maybe not.

What Didn't Happen in 2012
Contrary to many popular predictions, the world didn't end in 2012. Neither California nor Florida floated away. The South and North poles did not change positions. The Earth suffered some strange effects and disasters, but nothing compared to a true pole shift.

Instead, the people on the planet are the ones who experienced the pole shift--some more dramatically than others. For some of this, our true North suddenly became South. I saw this happen in my wife's life. She has been dedicated to the art of horsemanship since the age of four. She would ride any horse, nag, pony, or wild beast offered to her. Her dream was to eventually jump a horse in double clear rounds at the Grand Prix level.

All good. Then she suffered a number of accidents, some on horses and some through various life events, and that desire is gone. She, an avid collector of horses and horse projects, has suddenly reduced her usual gaggle of horses to one mare. She may eventually go back to the dream of riding at the Grand Prix level, but for now, her focus has completely shifted to other goals. The Grand Prix dream, which used to be her true North, has suddenly shifted to the South pole. Just like that, in the snap of a finger. Boom.

So while the Earth didn't suffer a total pole shift, many people, like my wife, have suddenly found their own personal poles shifted... seemingly without any warning.

What's Happening with Magic 2013?
So if you are a practitioner of the magical arts, how do you make sense of the hinky happenings this year? If you have experienced your own pole shift--or even series of pole shifts--how do you cope? What kind of magic can you do to lessen the impact on your life?

Well, first let's take a look at what's going this year. I would best describe the planetary happenings with the phrase, "As the world wobbles." This is partly, of course, a play on the daytime soap opera "As The World Turns."

The world is certainly still turning in orbit, thank goodness, but there's a very slight wobble going on as the planet circles around in that orbit. A slight wobble you say? Not a major wobble? Yes, a slight wobble. For the planet, the wobble is very slight, but for us humans, every tiny tremor in the planet can be felt as a major life shift, or perhaps as a continuous chain of minor inconveniences that stack up into a major headache.

For instance, one person reports a chain of small events that has stacked up into a major debt: a car malfunction, a not-too-major health issue, a tiff with a client, a sick pet, and minor house repair. Taken separately, these issues are not major, and this person would easily be able to handle them. But the problem is that they all occurred in a span of two weeks. Compressed into that time frame, this person is about to pull his hair out (what little hair is left, that is!). Now that is an example of the world experiencing a tiny wobble as it circles the sun.

In the other instance, a person can feel the world wobbling as a single major event that absolutely changes North and South poles, as discussed above. In the cases of these personal pole shifts, the severity can range from a lifetime interest in something simply disappearing to a life-threatening illness that leaves one teetering on the edge of life and death.

So what's a person to do as the world wobbles? Let's take a look at what kinds of magic are most beneficial in 2013.

How to Use Magic 2013
As you may have already figured out, Magic 2013 is about expecting the unexpected. That means being prepared, and having your magical toolbox fully stocked and ready to go at all times.

Next, adaptation is key. We have a phrase that we use often in our school (thanks to my teacher George Dew) called "cut and fit." Cut and fit is exactly what it sounds like. It means that you have to be able to look at the situation in front of you, rummage around in your magical toolbox, and come up with the right combination of tools that will solve the problem. The key is that the tools you use may or may not have originally been intended for the purpose to which you are now applying them. Nope. Magic 2013 calls for creativity, ingenuity, and the ability to shape your knowledge and experience in new ways to fit the new world--and its wobbles.

Then there's your perspective as you look at your life and any new situations that may have cropped up. You may need to adopt some new "rules" or paradigms in your life to cope with the strange events that appear. Here are some examples that may help:
  • There are no wrong decisions
  • Life is just an experiment so there are no "wrong" answers – you are just gathering data.
  • Hinky stuff is happening to everyone so at least you're not alone
  • Life on planet Earth is pretty messy right now, so just clean up as best you can and then do something that makes you feel good
  • You get to make up the rules to your own life, so now is a good time to start thinking about which life rules you might want to discard, and which new rules you might want to create

Sound good? Need more help? Check out our selection of ebooks and homestudy courses or Kindle books for specific ideas on how you can deal with your life as the world wobbles!

Take a Magical Power Walk

I'm sure you've heard of, seen or do power walking to keep fit or lose weight. But have you heard of a magical power walk to keep spiritually fit? This is just one of the many exercises and tips you'll find in our first Kindle book in the Witchcraft Spell Book series called LEARN HOW TO DO WITCHCRAFT RITUALS AND SPELLS WITH YOUR BARE HANDS.

Litany Versus. Chant
This magical power walk is really a litany and is part of the Navajo Beauty Way. Many people confuse litanies and chants, but they are not the same. Basically a chant creates a magical effect in the environment. A litany is a type of chant that affects the person saying the litany. This Walking Litany creates a stable datum or anchor point for whoever is saying it.

How the Walking Litany Works
When you do the Walking Litany, you are using a continuous spell that affects yourself. It puts up a temporary shield or omnil around you. Magical effects from it can vary according to the words used. In our example for this article, we will be looking at the magical effect of gaining personal power and/or ridding yourself of negative energies that are draining. According to the Law of Attraction, when you are affected or changed, so is your life. In other words, "The level of your being attracts the level of your life". The Walking Litany can help you change the level of your being which in turn changes your life.

Doing the Walking Litany as Power Walk
1. Start by taking a look at your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual condition. This is necessary for you to compare results after performing the litany and note changes created by it.

2. Walk for at least 2 city blocks. You can walk a further distance, but not less than 2 city blocks. It doesn't matter where you walk as long as you walk enough distance. You could be in a city, your neighborhood, a park, wooded trail, or even just around your house. Many people find it enjoyable to walk in a nature type of environment, but it isn't necessary.

3. As you walk, say this litany out loud and in rhythm with your footsteps. Use a strong voice of command.

4. The litany is:
With power around me, I walk in the world.
With power within me, I walk in the world.
This one carries power.
This one walks in power.
5. Keep saying the litany over and over throughout your entire walk.

6. At the end of the walk, take time to again notice your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual state. Ask yourself:
  • What is different?
  • What has changed?
  • What is no longer present?
  • What is new?
The Walking Litany can be used as a daily ritual or just anytime you feel the need to recharge your personal power or climb out of a negative hole into a more positive state. Now that you know the way to walk yourself down the path towards a more magical life, give it a try and go take a walk.
