A Pendulum is a tool that is used to connect to your higher self and ‘source’ by asking questions to help guide, clarify, and raise your awareness,” says Reiki Master Kelsey Patel. It’s not something you should use to help make every single decision of your life—but it can be useful in certain situations. According to Patel, it’s a very personal practice. “A pendulum can be used in various scenarios where you just want to gain a little more clarity, connection, and a better understanding of something,” she says. “You can ask the pendulum questions about life, love, health, career, money—whether simple or complex.”
Picture jasper is a powerful grounding stone that promotes connection to the earth. Some view this stone as a direct message from the Earth itself, instilling a sense of proportion, bringing comfort, alleviating fear and cultivating harmony.
