Use the Hypnotic Pendulum For Change 1

This article is the first in a series of how to use the hypnotic pendulum for change. The hypnotic pendulum is a way for you to be able to talk to your unconscious mind and ask questions. It can be very useful for those times when you want to make a personal change and you are doing all the right things like visualizations and affirmations and self suggestions and yet your unconscious mind does not seem to be going along with the program.

The hypnotic pendulum pictured here is the one I personally use. As you can see it is just a clear plastic ball (about an inch in diameter) with a small chain attached. I bought it years ago at a new age store for a few dollars.

You can make one if you want. Just get a piece of string (about 12 inches long) and something with a little weight to tie on to one end of the string. A nut from a nut and bolt makes a perfect weight. It has to have enough weight so that the string is stretched straight when you hold the opposite end of the string.

The picture here also depicts the proper way to hold the hypnotic pendulum; just hold the string between the thumb and 1st finger. When I use mine, I like to be seated at a table, hold the hypnotic pendulum with my dominate hand, and rest my elbow of my dominate hand on the table. Hold the weight about an inch from the table.

To teach yourself how to work with it, hold the hypnotic pendulum and make sure it does not move. Then consciously swing it forward and backward for a minute or so. Bring it to rest and then swing it side to side for a bit. Get use to the motion in your arm.

Now, with the hypnotic pendulum at rest, say to yourself, “unconscious mind, please give me a yes signal”. Think yes, yes, yes. Do not consciously move the hypnotic pendulum. Eventually your unconscious mind will swing it in a certain direction. Then bring it to rest and say to yourself, “unconscious mind, give me a no signal” and think no, no, no. Again, do not consciously move the hypnotic pendulum. Again, eventually your unconscious mind will swing it in a certain direction. Begin each new session with these two requests to your unconscious mind. Notice the slight difference in requests to yourself. This difference is important.

Next, test the hypnotic pendulum. Ask yourself some yes no questions that you know the answer to already. And see if it gives you the right answer. It is important that when asking a question do not consciously move the hypnotic pendulum. In order to ensure that I do not consciously move it, I typically look up at a picture on the wall, or hum a song to myself while awaiting an answer to my question. This part about testing the hypnotic pendulum is something you only have to do once, while getting use to working with the hypnotic pendulum.

So, that is about enough for one post. So I will stop here. If you have any questions about using the hypnotic pendulum, please go to Contact Me and send me a question. The next post in this series I will answer your questions and write about how to ask questions of your hypnotic pendulum. There is an art to asking the right questions in order to affect personal change.

    "I attended a hypnosis session with Greg Turner. I wanted some extra help to keep one of my resolutions. I was concerned about having someone hypnotize me, but Greg answered all my questions and had me relaxed in a minute or two. Since our session, I’ve been moving ahead with my goal and feel great about it. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone wanting help to kick a habit or create a new one."

    "I've known Greg since 1979 when he first heard about the amazing affects of hypnosis. He wanted to know everything about it and discovered the myriad ways hypnosis could change people's lives. Now as an experienced hypnotherapist he has the knowledge and experience to gently guide you along your path. I highly recommend Greg!"

    "Greg Turner is a wise person as well as being a great hypnotherapist.He knows how to guide you to your own insights and connections. He lets you set the pace of each session and understands the wisdom of silence. He assisted me with a jump I wanted to make in my life and I am on to my next phase. I highly recommend Greg as a hypnotherapist. "

    "Greg Turner has been a blessing in helping me to cope with stress and the compulsions that stress generates. Even though my permanent home is a far thousand and more miles from Greg the CD Greg gave me has been a long-distance reinforcement for me. I shall be forever grateful."
    "I came to Greg’s office and he explained the whole process very clearly and was genuinely interested in what I had to say. He also posed some interesting questions. I felt like I was finally confronting some real issues. I experienced trance, and came to find myself having thoughts and taking actions that were conducive to what I had laid out as my specific goals. My time with Greg has definitely brought about some changes in me and this is reflecting positively in both my personal and professional life."

    "Greg, I just got a raise and in part its due to my hypnosis sessions with you. As you know I dreaded the thought of having to get up and do presentations for senior members of my firm. My sessions with you taught me how to focus on the important parts of my speech and to forget about what they might be thinking of me. I now actually enjoy speaking in front of others and apparently my boss enjoys my presentations, as well. My raise more than covers the money I spent with you. Thanks"
    "Thanks Greg for helping with my eating habits. I am now eating much more slowly. Not only that, I now take home leftovers from a restaurant,and do not sit at my desk thinking about the chocolate that is around the office. You are a great hypnotist and I love my new life free of the control of food!!"

    "All my life I had been plagued with a phobia: I would gag nearly every time I tried to swallow a pill. Over the course of 3 sessions, I grew to trust Greg. Today I am calm and unafraid of taking pills."
    Diana B. Jillie
    "I was experiencing some ongoing fear of speaking in public since I came to live in the US. In 3 sessions, Greg helped me to overcome it. A few weeks ago I could do a singing presentation and I didn’t even noticed I was singing for a public! Yes, that worked perfectly! So, based on that happy outcome, I bought three more sessions with Greg to help me overcoming my fear of getting the Behind-the-wheel test, as I had failed a number of times and got really stuck on the process of having my California driver’s license. We’ve had only 2 sessions and here I am, waiting for my Driver’s License to come by Mail! Passed with flying colors in my driver’s practice test! YAY!!!! I just want to say this: don’t hesitate in asking for his help on “phobia” issues. You will be free of those disgusting feelings in no time with Greg’s help! Thank you my friend! You’ve helped me so much I will never forget you! "

    "Thank you for helping me to deal with anxiety and stress.I felt a real safety and trust working with you. I was easily able to let go and become calm and relaxed and drop in to a hypnotic state in your presence. The personalized hypnotic messages that you made for me I listen to a couple of times a day and are helping me to manage stress and stay relaxed and peaceful. Your voice is very soothing and comforting. It’s been tremendously helpful to me doing hypnosis with Greg.He really listen to my needs and gave me a lot of tools to work with. I will continue to see Greg as needed for support to work through obstacles."

    "I’m a person whose living depends on the ability to make cold calls. I’ve always avoided this dreaded task and consequently my income has sufferred as a result. I saw Greg Turner for only three hypnosis sessions. Since that time, my attitude towards cold calling has completely changed. I now enjoy making the calls, and as a result, my income is taking off. If you think hypnosis can help you, definitely give Greg a call"
    "Thanks Greg for helping me with my smoking. As you know I was not sure hypnosis would work for me. In fact, I was pretty uptight about it at first. Your presence and voice are so calm and soothing that after the first session I was able to relax and let you guide me into communicating with those parts of my inner mind responsible for my smoking. Thanks for helping me deal with my deamons because now I no longer have the desire to smoke."
    "Thanks Greg for helping me to quit smoking. I couldn’t have done it without the great insights into myself that you helped me see, and the hypnotic suggestions you gave me seem to still be working great!"
    Josh Reaves
    "Greg Turner, while shaking my hand and talking to me in a strange way, quickly and easily put me into a deep trance. I was really impressed, he has the most compelling hypnotic eyes and is an extremely powerful hypnotherapist and yet has a very safe and reassuring presence. I found Greg always to be completely professional and he has a tremendous knowledge and passion for hypnotherapy and how it can help people. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to explore any health issue or personal issue within their life. "
