During the season of Samhain, the veil between the world of the deceased and the world of the living is at its thinnest.
The veil between the worlds begins to thin around October 15th with the veil at it's very thinnest upon the eve of October 31st. The veil will continue to be thin through November 10th. During this time, divination, scrying and communicating with our ancestors is at its highest point.
With the veil now at it's thinnest, we divine answers, making contact with our ancestral spirits, embracing our heritage in celebration with those who have crossed over into the spirit world. An old ancient rite tells of writing a message to our departed loved ones on a piece of paper and casting it into the cauldron's fire. As the paper burns, your message is released and will be acknowledged by the recipient. You can also write your intentions for change and renewal in this same fashion.
How To Use A Pendulum To Connect With A Spirit
One of the most simplest ways to communicate with those who have crossed over to the otherworld, our family and friends, is by using a pendulum. A pendulum is simple tool used for communicating and gaining guidance from the spiritual world. The pendulum amplifies signals or energy vibrations emanating from a spiritual guide or the divine energies you've called upon. These vibrations focus their attention on the pendulum and cause it to move in specific directions, giving you answers and guidance to the questions you put to the tool.
To use as a divination tool, hold the pendulum with your strong hand, very steady so it doesn't move. Ask your question:
Yes - an up and down direction.
No - a side to side direction.
Maybe - a diagonal direction, from the lower left to upper right corners of the circle.
Don't Want To Answer - a diagonal direction , from the lower right to the upper left corners of the circle.
Probably Yes - a clockwise circle.
Probably Not - a counter-clockwise circle.
