A pendulum is a very personal item. It is a tool which you will use for intimate questions, so select one that speaks to you. The material is it made of is less important that the energetic connection you feel for it via your emotional response/attraction to it. Pendulums come in many different shapes, sizes, and material…At Goddess I AM we mostly sell stone pendulums. Find a stone pendulum that harmonizes with you...it may in a way pick you! Every pendulum comes with a small carrying bag.
Psychic energy is transmitted through the pendulum from a Being of Light. This could be an Angel, an Archangel, a Goddess, your Higher Self, a Saint, or a Being of Light who has chosen to work with you. The information that they transmit is only as clear as is your pendulum, and of course, as YOU are.
Goddess Tip: The most important thing to know about asking questions is to be neutral about the answer! If you want a yes to a question, you will get a yes. If you are emotionally attached to the answer, you will get unreliable answers. If you cannot get to a neutral space, ask a friend who also works with Light Beings to ask for you. I cannot stress this enough—you cannot care what the answer is…ask your Light Being if you are able to receive properly at this time… Know that your Angels are not going to lead you astray. It is also important to be in a good place in your emotions. Be balanced, centered and open to whatever the answer is.
