Speaking with Spirits isn't as complicated as it is frequency portrayed in the media. "Hello, is anyone here?" just isn't necessary and you aren't likely to hear, "It's Wilma". Spirits love to have conversation, but it isn't quite the same as speaking to your sister.A pendulum is a great way to speak with Spirits. If you have never used a pendulum before, it may take a bit of practice and some patience. Once you have the hang of it, you'll be having great conversations with Spirits.To use a pendulum, you don't need an elaborate ritual, lighted candles or mystical music. While all those things are very enjoyable, all you need is a pendulum. If you need to talk and don't want anyone at work to know, just use a paperclip on the end of a piece of string. No one will know you if you are just bored or deeply thinking about your work project.The more you dowse, the term for using a pendulum, the easier it becomes to communicate and the more accurately you will understand the information. Each Spirit has its own way of communicating just as people do, so you might need to understand Old English forms, phrases from another country, or even slang terms. If you don't understand, that could be the problem. If you don't understand ask for clarification.Each pendulum has its own particular swing patterns too. A counter clock-wise circle may mean no, while side to side may mean yes. The only way to determine how your pendulum swings is by asking, "Please show me a No Answer. Please show me a Yes Answer."While laborious, you can ask your pendulum for each letter in a message. It is less time consuming to make an alphabet chart. To make a chart, draw a circle on a piece of paper and divide it into 26 sections. Label each one as a letter in the alphabet. Make another circle inside the original circle, about half the diameter. To make it faster, still, divide that circle into 9 sections. Label those sections A, E, I, O, U, Y, Yes, No and Maybe. Another circle might be for combination of consonants, like SH, PF, CH etc. If you want, add enough sections for answers such as: Today, Tomorrow, or even numbers. Just set up the chart in a way that is useful for YOU.Don't expect everything to be perfectly spelled out for you. Some Spirits sound out words like we do with text messages or they just spell badly. Instead of your it might read ur. Instead of photographer, the pendulum might spell out 4do-grafr. Be patient and explore all the options when interpreting. Don't forget, it might be in another language. Instead of shoes, it might read Zapata.If you find that you are getting silly, threatening or just wild answers. You may have channeled a Spirit who is not willing to be helpful. Kick that Spirit to the curb, by stating, "You are not acting in my highest good. You are banished." Ask for a Spirit who does wish to work for your highest good and begin again.The most difficult part of dowsing is asking clear questions. Take your time and work on your questions just as much as you practice with your pendulum. Asking, "Will I ever get promoted?" won't be as clear an answer as, "Will I be rewarded with a promotion at my current work within 6 months?"A pendulum does not become a Divine device just because Spirits are willing to speak with you Pendulums are tools that allow you to speak with Spirits just as the telephone allows you to speak to the garage repair shop. It deserved to be cared for and respected, but keep everything in perspective too.Just keep practicing and asking questions. Before long, you will be a highly accurate Spirit Communicator.
