How to choose your pendulum?

So many shapes, sizes, gemstones! Sometimes it can be hard to choose your perfect pendulum, especially if it's your first one. We'll see how to choose, and how the shapes and materials can affect your practice.

If you are looking for your first pendulum, no need to overthink it. Follow your tastes and your intuition. Your first pendulum should be pleasing to your eyes, you should feel the desire to use it. So if one pendulum really pops into your eyes, it is the one! If you are still hesitant or experimented and looking to complete your collection with something new and different, let's study in detail these pendulums!

The hexagonal pendulum

Onyx and obsidian gemstone pendulum

Most gemstone pendulums are hexagonal, meaning they have six cut sides. By their shapes, they carry the symbols of the hexagonal shape: harmony, and natural order (like in a beehive for example). Massive or pointy, hexagonal pendulums are polyvalent, classic, and can be used for all practices. Small enough to find a place in your pocket, the tiny ones will be ideal if you want to carry your divination tool everywhere with you.

They will be perfect if you want a gemstone pendulum matching the energy you are going for (for example, rose quartz for love, lapis lazuli for intuition, etc.). Because they are made of gemstones, they may need to be cleaned occasionally. Gemstones are delicate so avoid any shock that could break them, so make sure to protect them when you are carrying them.

The Thot pendulum

Famous because of its specific shape, it's great for both emission and reception. Thot's pendulums are reproductions of Ouadj amulets, like the one discovered in a sarcophagus in the valley of the kings in Egypt. We can't be sure Egyptians used it as a divination and dowsing tool, but the precision and efficiency of the Thot pendulum make it perfect for all practices. The specific shape should not retain energy, but because it is made of gemstone, I would recommend cleaning it periodically.

The Isis pendulum
