Pendulums are used for divination. They are very accurate when used correctly. Be clear to state a precise question which can only have a ‘yes’, ‘no’ or ‘neutral’ response. It will swing in either vertical or horizontal lines, or have a circular motion. Try asking it ‘test’ questions in your head to see which kind of motion response it will give for each correct ‘yes’, ‘no’ or ‘neutral’ answer.
Obsidian is the healing crystal meant for intensive protection and care of the mind. The stone is often used to form a shield around the mind to help protect it from both physical and emotional negativity.
This stone is also helpful when it comes to clearing your mind of negative energy and blockage for clarity, strength and compassion. Where these already exist, Obsidian can heighten them.
Physically, Obsidian is used to aid digestion, pain reduction and detoxification. If you constantly experience menstrual pains or constant headaches, Obsidian may be a stone you want to keep close by in addition to your doctor’s prescriptions.
