Crystal Balls & Pendulums


Pendulums combine a simple appearance with a mystical and nuanced function.

They respond to your body's own energetic field in conjunction with your higher self and intuition, provoking jerk reflexes in your arm and wrist that allows the pendulum to move in a certain way. This movement in your wrists/arms, is what Chevreul discovered back in 1833 , the Ideomotor Reflex.

It is said that this reflex is the derived from the muscles moving in your arm, which is triggered by your subconscious brain activity. So by asking your pendulum a yes/no question, your energy field (aka your pendulum) is simply responding to what your inner self already knows subconsciously.

Crystal spheres are powerful tools, emitting harmony and positivity. Historically, the sphere is a perfect shape and held sacred: all points are the same distance away from the centre, making it a pure expression of unity, integrity and completeness.

Crystal gazing was developed by various cultures for a variety of purposes as early as 3000 BC. The Babylonians, Ancient Egyptians, Hindus, Greeks, Mayans, Incas, North American Indians, and Australian Aborigines all used mirrored objects, pools of water, or crystal balls to communicate with and receive answers from the gods, and often used scrying in temples to aid diplomats in decisions, to define diseases, or to learn of future dangers.

The Druids in Celtic Britain as well as Scottish Highlanders then used these “stones of power” to predict distant or future events, to give character analyses, to tell fortunes, or to help make choices about current situations and problems.
