Using a Pendulum to Evaluate Chakras

Learn how to work with chakras using a pendulum to help clarify and see the energy in each chakra and chakra combination.

Part I covers:

  • Making your own pendulum
  • Testing the motion of a chakra with a pendulum
  • Reading the size and speed of a chakra

Making a Pendulum

In general you can make a pendulum from anything.  Suspend a weighted object from a chain or string. The pendulum should be at least a few ounces—approximately the weight of a metal key.  It can be made of wood, natural crystals or stones. In a pinch, people have often used wedding rings or keys hung from a string or chain when an instant pendulum is needed.IMG_6505

You may also find that using something personal can make for a very good pendulum. Perhaps the beads from a favorite outdated necklace or other random small objects that hold sentimental value for you. Piecing several things together can be beautiful and useful, giving energy to the process that you would not have had with any other combination.

Testing the Motion of a Chakra

1. With your pendulum in hand, lay on your back face up
2. Breathe easily and focus your attention on the rhythm of your breathing
3. Relax your body and allow your mind to clear itself of all external stimuli
4. Pay attention that your focus of your breath is inside your body and not out. Your shoulders should relax back slightly
5. Place your *left hand face down on a chakra
6. With your right hand, hold the pendulum so the bottom of it hangs approximately 3-4 inches above your left hand
7. Allow the vibration to move through your right hand in a relaxed manner, record the speed and the size of the motion

*Occasionally some people may need to switch hands based on “polarity”. It occurs because of energetic switching due to magnetic polarity in the body and brain.

 

Reading the Size and Speed of a chakra’s Energy

With pen and paper in hand, write down the information regarding these characteristics: size and speed for each chakra.

Size

When chakra motion is between 6-8 inches this shows a healthy flow of energy into the chakra.

To gauge the size of the chakra:

  1. Focus your thoughts on being aware of the amount of energy running through the chakra from back to front.
  2. With your pendulum, use the Testing the Motion of a Chakra listed above.
  3. With your eyes closed, focus on a circular motion with the idea of checking energy flow only. *Don’t worry if the pendulum goes any-which-way, it’s just easier if you focus on a circular motion.
  4. Open your eyes and see the size of the rotation over the chakra being tested.

From Small to Large, what does this mean?

  • If the size is smaller or standing still, the chakra does not have enough energy flowing through the body to support the health of the chakra.
  • If the size is larger, the chakra has more energy than it needs and it is not being utilized by the body and energetic system.
Speed

The speed at which the pendulum moves indicates how fast or slow the energy in the chakra moves through the body. One rotation per second is the average speed.

To gauge the speed of the chakra:

  1. Focus your thoughts on being aware of the amount of energy your body consumes through the chakra.
  2. With your pendulum, use the Testing the Motion of a Chakra listed above.
  3. With your eyes closed, focus on a circular motion with the idea of checking only how much energy is being consumed. *Don’t worry if the pendulum goes any-which-way, it’s just easier if you focus on a circular motion.
  4. Open your eyes and see the speed of the rotation over the chakra being tested.

From Fast to Slow, what does this mean?

  • Too fast means you are forcibly moving energy through the chakra. You will experience an unnatural balance to overcome an “explosion” of Charka energy.
  • Too slow means  your energy is being forcibly slowed down due to an “implosion” of some kind.
Body, Mind, and Spirit Health

Why does the size and speed of the chakra matter?

  • Our emotions and will require a specific amount of energy flow to function without effort. Too much or too little can leave us feeling less than ourselves and open us to struggle.
  • As the “fabric” of the chakra is being pushed or pulled on by the speed of energy’s motion instead of flowing freely, over time the health of the chakra will break down.
  • Learning the issues behind the explosion or implosion (extreme push and pull due to fear or beliefs) of each chakra will help maintain the health of your energetic system.

Part III helps you interpret what the basic motions of a chakra mean in relationship to your energy.

Part IV gives practical methods for clearing information from the chakra to return health.
