How To Use A Pendulum For Balancing The Body Energy With Reiki
A pendulum is a divination tool used for spiritual healing by individuals and Reiki masters. It is a swinging object connected to a metal or leather chain or a string that swings circularly or back and forth (i.e. a necklace or simply a string with a paperclip attached. Pendulums are made of crystals, glass, wood, or metal. It has a sharp edge that causes the body to meditate. Pendulums are used as a complementary health therapy in Usui Reiki to help people detect blockages in their bodies. Reiki treatments for healing include removing energy blocks in your body and grounding. By locating blocks in a person's chi, or energy, pendulums aid in the acquisition of complementary and alternative medicine for physical and spiritual healing. When we pick up vibrations and move in the direction of the Universal Energy around us that we cannot see, we get answers to our questions. HOW TO PRACTICE REIKI WITH A PENDULUM You will hold it just above the person's body to determine any energy blocks and/or imbalances in their energy chakra system. You will assess the seven main chakras of the body, the Crown, Third-Eye or Brow, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral, and Root Chakras. As you hold the pendulum above each chakra it moves in response to the flow of Universal Life Force Energy, Chi, or Ki (depending on your belief system). Then you observe how the pendulum is swinging. For many the pendulum will swing clockwise when the chakra is in alignment. However, I have had students in the past that have an 'open' counter-clockwise rotation. The important thing to do is compare and contrast. I check each chakra before I perform any Reiki healing and then I re-evaluate after the session. Once you're off of the massage table we discuss my findings. CHOOSING A PENDULUM FOR HEALING When you want to start Reiki classes, you cannot choose a pendulum; it must choose you. You should choose a pendulum that feels right when you touch it. Close your eyes and hold the pendulum in your hands, then pay attention to how you feel. If you believe that a change in the temperature and subtle vibrations of the pendulum will be beneficial to your natural healing and spiritual practice. I tell people to go with their first gut instinct! HOW TO CLEAN THE PENDULUM It is vital to cleanse your pendulum, so it will function well before Reiki practice. You can cleanse it using sea salt or tap water. I prefer to use my Smudge Spray, containing Palo Santo and Sage among other things. I cleanse my pendulum before, during, and after a session. I also use the spray to cleanse any areas where I brush energy off the person's body.

JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL NOT WORRY Stress is a major problem in our lives. We can live peacefully and bring peace to others if we can stop worrying for just one day. Worrying less will reduce your stress and improve your health. So, just for today, trust in God, spirit, and a source within yourself that everything will be fine.
JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL NOT BE ANGRY When confronted with an angry situation, take a deep breath, relax, forgive, and release. What will you gain by channeling your rage? Nothing. You will end up putting your body in a fight or flight mode. This increases your heart rate and blood pressure, resulting in more stress and a negative impact on your well-being.
JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL BE GRATEFUL Oftentimes we only see what we don't have and always want for more. We can avoid a lot of stress if we try to be grateful for the things we already have, a roof over our heads, and a good family that supports us. When you are grateful for what you have right now, you will attract more good.
JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL DO MY WORK HONESTLY If you do your work honestly, your life will have more meaning, purpose, and personal growth. In time, you'll feel more positive about yourself.
JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL TREAT EVERY LIVING THING KINDLY What you give out will be returned tenfold. We all deserve to be treated with kindness and love, so we should be loving and caring toward everyone. It is difficult to live by every Reiki principle everyday, but you can start with one and that will lead to a path of living life happier.
