Pendulum Questions





The questions to ask a pendulum can be as varied and unlimited as your imagination. You will find however, the more specific and dialed in your question, the more telling and accurate your answers will be. Start by asking questions that can only garner a yes or no response rather than asking “should I _____ instead of _____?" as the pendulum can only answer yes or no. With more advanced pendulum work, you can however measure responses more in depth, but for basic pendulum readings you must keep questions precise.

So if you want to know whether you should approach a career in the healing arts, or if you should venture into music, begin by asking about one specific area such as reiki. Then you can move onto homeopathy, before asking about something related to music. Exploring the many facets that each industry has to offer, may lead you to newfound possibilities that will marry two interests such as producing music for relaxation and meditation.

When thinking of questions to ask a pendulum, you can consider rephrasing questions that don’t seem to result in a definitive response. For example, if you are asking about a relationship, rather than ask “is this the right person for me?”, you could ask “is it uplifting for me to continue seeing this person?” This allows for an answer that is centered on your current journey, as well as the opportunity for exploration, rather than an all encompassing yes or no for the rest of your life. The less broad your question, the easier it will be to receive a clear yes or no response.

The best questions to ask a pendulum are those that specifically relate to you and the decisions you need to make rather than questions that you feel will give you answers about another person. Asking questions about another person, as it pertains to you, will often give you better results than trying to ascertain specific information on the other person. The exception to this would be when you’re working with another person who has given you permission to do a reading and vice versa.
