Traditionally pendulums are Spiritual Tools that are used for communication with the Divine, Grandfather Creator, Spirit Guides, Ancestors, Power Animals, Angels, etc.
They are mostly used for divination practices, but in the Curanderismo tradition, they are used in a different way. The main purpose of using a pendulum is to empower Spiritual Tools, Altars, and Ceremonies.
Also among Curanderismo Practitioners and students, pendulums are used in their Spiritual practices. Pendulums help to redirect spiritual energies where needed. When a pendulum is used in the right way we can make sure that is not our ego, our mind or our imagination what is empowering our spiritual practices.
Our favorite pendulums for Curanderismo are the ones that are made out of crystals, are round to concentrate spiritual energies and have a metal point at the bottom for directing these energies where needed.
