Embrace Lapis and Garnet's amazing energies with this handmade pendulum!
Throughout history pendulums have been used to locate water, gold, gems, and other valuable items. In Europe early scientists and doctors would use pendulums to locate infections and weak areas of the body. Doctors would also use certain pendulums to determine the gender of unborn infants. People also trust the pendulum enough and have developed such a relationship to let the the pendulum guide them with the most difficult spots of their lives. Also, thought moves the pendulum. Thought directs the subconscious as to the direction in which the pendulum is to move. The subconscious uses the brain to send signals along the neurological pathways that control the muscle "twitches" that move the pendulum in the desired direction.
