Pendulum Changed Direction
Why would my pendulum change direction for "yes" and "no" in the middle of working with it?
After many questions, I asked it if my middle name was Ruth, and it said no. (It IS Ruth.) I then asked it to show me the direction for the answer "yes", and it went clockwise. It had been doing the opposite until now. It had told me that clockwise was for "no".
I just bought my first pendulum last week and began by passing it through sage smoke, and I said a quick prayer. I started by asking it to show me "yes", which was counter clockwise. I then asked it to show me "no", and it was clockwise. I asked it things I already knew, and the answers were correct. I went on to ask many questions throughout the day.
One question was if I should show the pendulum to my husband. It said "yes", so I showed him the next day. I asked it to show us the direction for "yes", and it went counterclockwise. When I asked it to show us the direction for "no", it also went counterclockwise. I then stopped, being concerned that either the sage was not enough to cleanse negative energies, or I wasn't supposed to go any further with him.
I looked online for what looked like a reliable source, and found your very helpful site. (Thank you!) I then put the quartz in sunlight for a whole day, saged it, took all the steps you suggested, and used your lovely blessing. Plus asked Archangel Michael's help. I asked it for "yes" and "no" directions, and it was clockwise for "no", counterclockwise for "yes", which was the same as before. That is, until I asked if Ruth was my middle name.
