Pendulum Power workshop

 


‘The pendulum is a tool for communicating with the deeper, more hidden levels of our being, the part of us which is, unfortunately, clouded by fear, ignorance and false-to-fact opinions about ourselves and the universe we live in, the part of us that knows the truth because it is the truth. These levels of being are not conditioned by space and time and have powers which we as humans have not even begun to understand. '
