Muscle Testing and Pendulums | Higher-Self Guidance

Both muscle testing and pendulums are sources of communication to receive guidance from our spiritual self or higher self.

Our physical bodies have been designed to respond to true statements with muscle strength and to false statements with weakness.  Both 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 are 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 statement is true or false.  Short statements also promote clarity.

Remove Dark Entities

Prior to muscle and pendulum testing, it is important 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.

Pendulums

I connected with and really like the Jovivi Beautiful Pendulum Dowsing Chakra Pendant with Chain. 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 its 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 which is 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 very 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 to clarify 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

Muscle Testing and Pendulums - The pendulums I use go forward and backward for the answer yes or true; they go sideways for the answer no or false.

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 nod 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.

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 properly 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.  There are many Youtube videos that present various muscle testing methods.  I chose to share the following three videos that are short, but yet effectively demonstrate different options to explore and try out.

  1. Katherine Telsinger shares three methods of self-muscle testing.
  2. Willow System with Rita Harrison shares a reliable self-muscle test and some very good muscle testing tips.
  3. 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.

Neutral mindset 

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 really want.  When you become highly emotionally charged because of a deep desire for something, it can affect the accuracy of muscle and pendulum testing.  For best results, use muscle and pendulum testing with a neutral mindset.

Conclusion

Muscle testing and pendulums are good tools to help you receive “yes or no” answers and “true or false” answers to better understand 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.

  1. Pendulum and muscle testing are new age occult practices. (Metaphysics). If this website is Christian, believes in God and Jesus Christ dying for our sins..then new age practices shouldnt be mixed into this website. Which team are you professing to playing for? Occult or God?. Pick one. If you dont believe me simply muscle test, sway test or pendulum test this simple question..”are you under the authority of Jesus Christ of Nazareth?”.. you will get a negative answer. This topic is NOT healthy by God. This is new age. Dont be fooled by the evil one.

    1. Thank you for your comment. In the Bible, it is recorded that Christians cast lots to receive answers. Pendulum and muscle testing are forms of casting lots. They are tools to employ until you have mastered listening purely to the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost to receive heavenly answers. When I started doing healing work, I mostly depended on a pendulum, but now I mostly depend on the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost to receive heavenly answers. However, I do understand that we all have to be on our toes to make sure we are hearing the voice of God rather than following the voice of the adversary who uses trickery and disguise to deceive people. I address this sometimes confusing subject at the following link: https://www.healbygod.com/what-influences-thoughts/
      I also posted a warning to beware of occult activity at the following link: https://www.healbygod.com/how-to-prevent-negative-entities/

      1. Thank you, I love this article. I have to disagree with Shirley about this being part of the occult or one of satans tools to deceive. I also disagree that metaphysics is evil. Sure it can be used for dark purposes but it’s personally helped me get back in touch with who I really am and helped me grow spiritually. In fact I was just at a metaphysics shop today and bought some crystals and a new pendulum.
        I’m Christian, or LDS if you want to be more specific, and I believe we are given many tools to receive guidance from God or our higher self. Just because something is labeled as “new age” or “occult” doesn’t mean it’s evil. After all, we are literally entering a NEW AGE of Enlightenment, and there’s just as much good as there is bad in every aspect of life. Not only does God speak to all of His people no matter what religion they are, He’s also given us diverse ways to receive His guidance, many of those things most religions don’t teach. At the same time, satan will try to counterfeit everything God does to try to deceive. He’s also very good at convincing people things like pendulums and muscle testing are always evil in order to try to keep us cut off from Christ as much as he can. That’s ironic, isn’t it? A spirit so dark he convinces people to stay away from “evil” things like this. If it truly were evil, he would be convincing people they were good.
        I also like your article about getting rid of dark entities. They can give us false answers and hopes without us even realizing. Light and dark get equal playing time in this life.
        You have some really great content and I appreciate you sharing these things with people. If people criticize some of these things, they just aren’t ready for it. For those who are, they will receive it well and feel the truth of what you’re saying.
        Keep it up!!
