"How To Read The Energy In Your Chakras With A Pendulum"

The easiest way to read the quality of energy in your chakras is with a pendulum.

If you have been wanting to understand your chakras and your energy system, set up an appointment today for a medical intuitive reading by emailing  or calling 678-612-8816.

I can read not only your chakras but your physical body, your energy body, your emotional body, your mental body and your spiritual body to determine the source of your energy imbalance.

What you discover with a pendulum about the quality of energy in your chakras reveals a tremendous amount of valuable information about your physical health, psychic openness and experience of pain and suffering.

Your chakras are a vital part of your energy system.

When energy enters your body, this electrical current first enters the bahui acupuncture point on the crown of your head through your hara line, a vertical current that extends upwards and downwards, connecting you to the divine as well as grounding you into the earth.

Your hara line in turn feeds energy into your chakras, which are vortexes of energy corresponding to your endocrine glands.

There are seven major chakras and multiple minor chakra points throughout your energy field.

Your chakras feed your acupuncture meridians.

Your acupuncture meridians feed energy into your organs.

Lastly but not least, your organs feed energy into your muscles.

If you are experiencing a problem anywhere along this chain – whether it be your muscles, your organs or your acupuncture meridians, it all goes back to the quality of energy running through your chakras.

Keeping your chakras open and balanced is therefore key to your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health.

Here is how to read the quality of energy in your chakras:

Step One. Hold a pendulum in your dominant hand. Most pendulums have a small ball at the top followed by a chain and a small pointed object at the bottom. You can easily purchase a pendulum on the internet. I recommend all metal, or a pendulum with an amethyst or clear quartz crystal as other crystals tend to store energy. You want an instrument that can be kept clear. In a pinch, I will take off my necklace and simply use a necklace.

Step Two. Place the pendulum over the center of a chakra. For this example, let’s have you read the minor chakra in your non-dominant hand.

Step Three: On its own, the pendulum will begin a subtle motion. The motion you observe will indicate what is happening with that particular energy vortex.

Here are some options of what you may observe:

Closed: If the chakra is closed, your pendulum will not move.

Open: If the chakra is open, your pendulum will begin to move in a clockwise fashion.

Counterclockwise: This indicates your chakra is open but the energy in that particular chakra is moving backwards.

Over Energy: If the pendulum moves clockwise but extremely rapidly, that means your chakra is processing too much energy. This is not good because over energy always eventually leads to under energy.

Under Energy: If the pendulum moves clockwise but weakly, the chakra is open but is deficient in chi life force energy.

Erratic or Uneven Swing: If the pendulum moves but in an erratic or uneven swing, that indicates that the chakra is open but there is an imbalance, congestion or partial blockage in the chakra.

Your chakras interpenetrate your physical body, energy system, emotional body, ego-mind and spiritual self.

An imbalance on any layer may affect the quality of energy in your chakras and therefore the quality of every aspect of your well being.

Putting it very specifically, that means that your chakras can be affected by karma or unresolved spiritual issues, your thoughts and beliefs, your emotions, any blockage or congestionin your energy system or physical malfunctions of your body.

Here is what you may be experiencing in each chakra:

I use a pendulum if I am practicing energy healing or Reiki.

I simply read the energy throughout the chakra system and that qualitative information gives me a good idea where I need to bring balance throughout your mind-body system.

If you have been feeling unwell, a good place to start to begin to understand why is to read your own chakras.

Once you identify where the problem is, the solution will become self evident.

    Please read my chakras and balance my mind and body system. I have a pendulum just help me with it.

  2. Hi Catherine,
    I got 2 pendulums and while doing a Web search on the differnt uses of a pendulum I came across your page. It is fascinating to me and very informative and intriguing! I would like to see if your able to work with me and show me how to balance my life, body and soul by reading my chakrus. I am new to this but I also am very open. I have a wonderful life but I do feel as if my body and soul need some help.
    I appreciate your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
    Thank you

    • Hi Christina, Yes, I would be more than happy to help you! Please send me an email at or call 678-612-8816 for a FREE 15-minute consultation. Pendulums can be useful tools to help us connect to our soul guidance. However, it’s crucial that we be NEUTRAL to get accurate information. Because we ourselves can be emotionally attached to the answers we hope to receive, it’s sometimes difficult to be totally neutral when asking for ourselves. As intuitive as I am and as much as I pray and ask for guidance all day long, when I recognize that my ego and my emotions are holding me back I consult other intuitive friends for guidance. Realize that you too are human and that it’s OK to ask for guidance when you can’t be neutral about yourself. Love and light, Catherine Carrigan

  3. I just used my pendulum on all my chakras 1st good,clockwise 2nd blocked, ( have issues with sciatic and muscles in that area, third good circle clockwise, 4th huge circle clockwise, 5th small circle clockwise. 6th huge circle counterclockwise,what does backward energy mean in this case,
