Using a pendulum for divination is generally easy to do. Since a swing is only able to answer Yes / No questions. The learning process is usually quite short. More time is required to create a finely tuned pendulum then to learn how it is used. The art of using a pendulum for divination is ancient. Some accounts say that ancient Egyptian civilizations employed it.
Preparing a pendulum for divination is a tedious process on how to use a swing. One must first cleanse the talisman, whether store-bought or made by the reader, and the entire preparation should ONLY be performed by the person who will be using the object. Some forms of development entail meditation and constant handling of the item, while others involve elaborate purification rites. It is not unusual for a cleansing spell to be intoned during the physical cleansing, which is done in a glass or metal dish of pure water. After this step, the object must be left exposed in the light of the full moon for one whole night. Before the sun has risen, the item should be covered in a protective cloth and shielded at all times from direct exposure to the sun.
