Green Owl Curiosities Pendulum Review & Giveaway




Divination is a  popular practice in Wicca, but is known is many other religions and cultures as well. There are many ways to divine the future. You can use tarot cards, Ouija boards, or scrying bowels. But one of my favorite forms of divination has always been the pendulum. First of all, I love to utilize the natural energies of crystals and stones. But I also love the simplicity of the pendulum. You simply hold the it between the thumb and forefinger and ask it yes and no questions, starting with things you know the answers to so you can see which way it swings. Once you know the pattern, you can ask other questions. It is a useful tool to help guide you along your spiritual path. Of course there are many other ways to use your pendulum, but this is my personal preference.



I have purchased pendulums from many different places over the years, but one of the nicest ones I ever received came from a little Etsy shop called Green Owl Curiosities. I received one of their obsidian pendulums to review and it is absolutely gorgeous. The first thing I noticed is that the stone is much larger than most of the pendulums I own, yet it still maintains the perfect weight. At the tip is a small black stone that makes it easy to grip. Both are attached to a sturdy silver chain. If you are looking for a quality pendulum that will last you a lifetime, Green Owl Curiosities is definitely the way to go.



There are many stones you can choose from with the pendulums including clear quartz, rose quartz, amethyst and more. If there is a certain stone that you feel works better with your energy it is probably available. If  you are looking for answers to specific questions, like love questions, then the rose quartz may be right for you. In addition to their pendulums, Green Owl Curiosities also offers unique spiritual jewelry, beautiful fairy ribbon stars, felt creations and more. All of their items are available for everyday low prices. They would make wonderful gifts or a great addition to any witch's cupboard.
