Rainforest Pendulums

Tool for Reading the Human Energy Field Rainforest Pendulums. Product Photo: Crystal Dreams

Pendulums are used for reading imbalances in the human energy field, especially the chakras. Wooden Pendulums are recommended over those made of crystal or metal pendulums because wood posseses subtle energies in comparison to the energies housed in metals and crystals. The more highly energy-charged the pendulum the more difficult to get a clear reading with. This is especially true if the pendulum has not been cleared properly.
