How to use a chakra pendulum:
Begin by laying down on your back (or, if you are performing the chakra pendulum exercise on someone else, have them lie on their back on a surface that is tall enough for you to have a comfortable position and not be leaning into them. You do not want to create a “push,” where you are pushing energy from your field into theirs). Holding the cord of the pendulum between your thumb and forefinger about 4-6 inches above each chakra. When the pendulum moves, observe its direction and movement.
- If the pendulum moves clockwise, that chakra is open, well-balanced, and full.
- If the pendulum moves counter-clockwise, there may be blocked energy or unreleased emotions relating to that specific chakra.
- If the pendulum moves in an elliptical swing, there may be a right- or left-side imbalance of energy flowing in the body. This may be due to overusing the right masculine side or the left nurturing side.
- If the pendulum moves in an erratic swing, it is possible that you (or the person you are performing the chakra pendulum exercise on) may have recently changed a belief or is going through a spiritual upheaval, which can affect the chakra’s movement and cause it to move erratically for a couple of days.
- If the pendulum does not move at all, you may be holding the pendulum in the incorrect location. If that is not the case, then there may be a blockage in that chakra.
