Our physical bodies are designed to respond to true statements with muscle strength and false statements with weakness. Muscle testing and pendulums are sources of communication to receive guidance from our higher self or higher consciousness. I wrote a previous blog post explaining details about the higher-self if you would like to learn more about this aspect of yourself.
Short clear statements for muscle testing and pendulums
I have found using short, clear statements is more accurate and reliable than asking questions when using muscle and pendulum testing. Take, for instance, rather than asking, “Is this olive oil good for my body?” Make it into a statement: This olive oil is good for my body. Then you can muscle or pendulum test to see if the information is true or false. Short statements also promote clarity.
Remove Dark Entities
Before muscle and pendulum testing, it is essential to remove all dark negative entities in and around yourself and those you are working on so the entities do not block the reception of correct answers. See the above link if you would like further directions on how to remove dark entities.
I connected with, and like the Jovivi Beautiful Pendulum Dowsing Chakra Pendant with Chain (this link and the following link are Amazon associate links, thank you), I have never figured out why sometimes communication between a person and a favorite pendulum is better than other pendulums. Even though it may be unexplainable, it often happens.
This Jovivi pendulum favors moving forward and backward for “yes” and side to side for “no,” which is the only type of pendulum movement I like. I like the color purple. Maybe it’s because I am an Aquarius, and purple is my birthstone.
I am also drawn to the Jovivi Natural Amethyst Crystal 12 Faceted Therapy Healing Dowsing Divination Pendulum; a Reiki Charged Chakra Balancing Pendant with Chain. Although I don’t own this pendulum yet, I have noticed the pendulums that carry a bit more weight at the bottom tend to work better. I also love the look of this pendulum. It is a beautiful piece.
This pendulum comes in four different stones. Again, I am drawn to the purple amethyst. The description of this pendulum says amethyst has a gentle calming effect and aids in clarifying the mind. Maybe that’s why I am drawn to purple amethyst.
Accuracy and preferences
I suggest trying both muscle testing and pendulums to see what works best for you. No matter which one you prefer, it takes practice for most people to excel at either skill.
Super Helpful Tip
The pendulums I use go forward and backward for the answer yes or true, and they go sideways for the answer no or false.
A super helpful TIP: I think of the “forward and backward” pendulum motion like when you nod your head “yes,” and the sideways pendulum motion like when you shake your head “no.” This helps me remember the difference between yes or true answers and no or false ones.
Cleansing your pendulum
I also recommend resetting your pendulum to ensure you aren’t picking up the energy of those living with you or those you have worked on previously. I suggest using one of the following energy cleansing methods while focusing your intention to cleanse your pendulum of foreign or unwanted energies:
- Put your pendulum in a bowl of sea salt and stir it around a few times. Make sure the salt completely covers the pendulum.
- Put your pendulum under running cold water for 30 seconds or longer.
- Put your pendulum in the moonlight for a couple of hours or longer.
- Put your pendulum in the sunlight for a couple of hours or longer.
A video I like about how to use a pendulum
Below is a video link I recommend viewing that shows how to use a pendulum.
Please note how the demonstrator holds the pendulum with three fingers (the thumb, index, and middle fingers) in the non-receiving hand to allow the energy to flow correctly because the tall finger is positive, the pointer finger is negative, and the thumb is neutral. FYI, the receiving hand of most people is the right hand because that is the preferred hand for the majority of people, as explained in the “how to use a pendulum” video.
Helpful Videos – Various muscle testing methods to explore
You can communicate with your higher self using various methods of muscle testing, also known as kinesiology. Many Youtube videos present various muscle testing methods. I chose to share the following three short videos that effectively demonstrate different options to explore and try out.
- Katherine Telsinger shares three methods of self-muscle testing.
- Willow System with Rita Harrison shares a reliable self-muscle test and some very good muscle testing tips.
- Dr. Whitten shares five methods of muscle testing. Dr.Whitten’s presentation isn’t as clear as I prefer, however, he does show a couple of different muscle testing methods that may work for some so I decided to share his video. *Again, I highly recommend using short statements rather than questions as sometimes shown in these videos.
It is best not to depend on muscle and pendulum testing if you have deep emotional desires when trying to get an answer about something you really want. When you become highly emotionally charged because of a deep passion for something, it can affect the accuracy of muscle and pendulum testing. For best results, use muscle and pendulum testing with a neutral mindset.
Muscle testing and pendulums are good tools to help you receive “yes or no” answers and “true or false” answers to understand better what is needed to heal.
Afterward – What does God think about muscle testing and pendulums?
If you are wondering what God thinks about muscle testing and pendulums, I wrote a blog post sharing scripture verses to clarify God’s views concerning this subject if you would like to check this post out.
