Rock Crystal & Brass Divination Pendulum with Witness Chamber
The metal section of the pendulum is constructed in brass with a bright reflective golden plating, on to this attaches the natural rock crystal pendulum. This design incorporates a "witness chamber", this is avery small space or "chamber" inside the top section of the pendulum that can be filed with tinny amounts of powders, hair, oils, folded paper or ashes, depending on the purpose of the practice. Therapeutic practitioners may include a drop of aromatherapy oil while mediums or paranormal investigators may use a persons nail or hair clippings a name on a little piece of folded paper or even a pinch of cremation ashes to strengthen a connection.
The pendulum point measures approximately 4.5cm (excluding the chain) 22cm including the chain. The witness chamber inside this pendulum is very small but enough to enclose a very small sample.
Please Note: these are made from natural rock crystal so every one will be unique in appearance and may have little surface inconsistencies and tinny cracks on the finish.
What is a Witness Chamber Pendulums
The concept of the Witness Chamber Pendulums was developed by Father Abbe Mermet, a priest from Switzerland, who first placed herbs inside the pendulum as he believed the vibration from the piece of matter placed inside the pendulum emits its own vibration around it. This vibration can be related to any kind of questioning or practice. So simply put the actual material, message or sample placed inside the pendulum is known as the witness, and its purpose is to give further direction to the required outcome of the practice.
The pendulum is one of the oldest & simplest forms of divination and has been used all over the world throughout our know human history. Typically a pendulum is an object with high weight for its size, suspended at the end of a string, wire rope or rod. Most modern pendulums come in the form of attractive Metal, crystals or stones which are polished or cut to a jewellery level, but any object of weight could be used. There are many different ways you can use a pendulum for divination from asking simple "yes" and "no" questions and determining a movement for each answer to whole alphabetic and astrological board layouts for highly detailed readings or even to find water, lost items or lay lines. You will also find many people telling you how to use your pendulum, do this do not do that! We have no intention of getting into this debate or they to restrict how you experiment and simply would encourage you research, experiment and find your own way of working that gives you results however you please.
