It will swing freely under the action of gravity.

How to use it?
Unless you ask the questions for someone else, it is better to be by yourself. Drinking a glass of water before the reading is a good start as it will help you to connect with the universal consciousness. Meditating sometime before the reading will help you as well if you are familiar with it. Sit down and keep your mind and body as still and free as possible. You have to establish the connection and decide on the protocol beforehand. You have to agree on the meaning of its motions.
Hold your pendulum lightly between your thumb and your forefinger so it can swing easily. Focus on the question and let it go. The answers you will get are for the very day, things can change tomorrow. Don’t expect anything, don’t reject the answer if it doesn’t please you, be open and receptive. Just release your will and desires, let the pendulum speak and guide you. A daily practice is welcome if you want to explore the various possibilities. Practice will train your mind and will improve the accuracy of your readings.
