I think I seen a YouTube video about this topic but I cannot remember who did the video. I think that a lot of the issues we see coming from differences in practices and experiences comes from fear. People get so wrapped up sometimes in what they've learned must be absolute truth that they lose all common sense. It's okay to be different. And its ok to be wrong sometimes. Ive never met a person that was always right. They may have been lying to themselves and /or to everyone else. Being full of shit no matter how right you try to convince other people you are, still makes you full of shit, no matter how many times you say otherwise. The experienced person/witch/pagan learns that probably the only absolute truth out there is that everything changes and what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for everyone else or possibly even anyone else. I doubt anyone's sincerity and experience that tries to convince others that their brand of witchery or paganism is wrong. Experience just says otherwise. You say something won't or cannot work? I bet that I can find someone that does make it work for them.
I like your statement about walking on eggshells because other people choose to live in them. So many times you see others bullying those that challenge their beliefs. Anyone feeling the need to do that to anyone is definately living in an eggshell and expecting everyone else to live with them in it.
Ive gotten out of the habit of using a pendulum but I do agree that they seem to almost have a personality all their own sometimes. I've made a lot of pendulums in the feild, using nails, sewing needle, necklace, ring, etc. I appreciate your post as I think that it has inspired me to start working with them again.

Here's an update on the site for you. As you know, our mobile apps have now been officially released. We have moved to TMD Hosting. We have expanded more staff, Ky, Amanda and myself. Our site activity has trippled. We are interested in crowd funding projects so we may give bak to the comunity in real life. An email will be generated soon inviting the entire site to participate in the platform as we're out of beta development state now and are live as live can be. We successfully have the old data from the old site saved and are working on funding a means for a developer to install it directly. I'll try and answer some of your questions I se you have posted about here to date. Please remember to tag us in a comment or post if it is one where you need staff to take a peak at the problem in question for future reference. To do so, place a @ sign in front of the username you see when you view the profile URL of a person in a post. We are working on a way to customize this URL to anything you want. All email notification problems should be fixed, so if you have to reset yor password, you have that capability.

We moved to a new platform because we outgrew wordpress. This one can handle many more users online at once without breaking core files during updates, and so that security feature alone is why we had to make the switch. I'm sorry if this caused you any problems, we've got a custom freelance developer hired working on porting over all the data but it takes time and money which we've got so please be patient and we're sorry that we chose such a rudementary platform to start with. Independence is key, but so is unity, and to do both, my expertise were called in to assist with choosing the right option for us which I gladly participated in so we could thrive together. Right now we're using PHPFox and it has a proven track record of hundreds of thousands of users on sites using it, which is where we were with Ning before they decided to play micromanagement games with hosting Pagan Space. So, we're currently trying to export old site data as well over here, to make our community alive once more. Which is why we decided to move, as it is a process to be able to feel like we're truly a community collective in self ownership of equal standing with one another as a place of spiritual growth, homely diversity and a sense of belonging. During our journey moving away from that platform, we've recently outgrOWN GoDaddy web hosting, so we switched to HostIso and we're on a dedicated server. We're currently paying hundreds a month for this setup, but it is needed because of the infrastructure needed to pull off a community setting like the one we had before for a lot less on a cloud service. This way we have more control and can give more to the community because we're creating the ability to do just that, with customization that's been recently made available to us. That's why it is taking longer than usual to setup. I'm a tech advisor here presently so if any major problems happen with the site, I'm usually here to fix things or pass the problem on to the main community managers Mat and Chandler. I do a little development work and research as well, so we're working with several experts in different fields to make this work and feel more professional. Which we thought we were getting before, but we were given the run around, so it's from the ground up this time. In my opinion, due to its ability to hold itself up very well cross server and domain migrations and the ability to easily update or add sections as needed without breaking, PHPFox is here to stay as our community platform and mobile apps are on the way. Things aren't perfect yet, but will be improving because I'm a part of the team that has given over the technical means and the license holding rights to make it happen. Thanks for your interest in the site so far, I am happy to help you if you have any questions.

Yes plese i need some folks to talk politics at 6 am while i smoke my morning joint. 
I have uesed  pendulum for years.My first pendy suggested i become wiccan, and it was one of  the best choices i ever made.   I make them as well, with large fancy beads. I have talked to my guides and my deceased loved ones with it many times.  One time yrs ago, my aunt actually materilized during our converdation that started with my pendulum, and she was spot on about when my best friend would pass. and that very best friend whispered in my ear after her passing to grab the pendy that she only saw ,and she too  materlized just long enough to play that "got yr nose" game she liked. and had done to me the last yime she was lucid before the  cancer took her. and my precious sons always come through no matter what i ask to say we love you mom. There is a pendulum chart book by dale olson that has a chart for every need. its helped me lot.
@Peter Gore Seer, funny you should say that the eggshells come from the Jews while you have a Judaic/Rosicrucian emblem as your profile picture. Where as in truth, the eggshells come from people assuming there is only one "Right path" and that it is their own, where there are just as many right paths as there are people, and not everyone lives to serve, this thought overwhelms most so they fall into their shells, and cast all paths not relevant to their own aside. This is not a finger pointing statement, and if anyone group is to blame it is Humans in general.
Curious what differences people have noted using different stones other than quartz as their pendulum weight: for instance amethyst, white smokey quartz, or black quartz and how the stones affect the readings? Just a study thought....
I guess the first topic I would like to discuss that isn't already overly discussed in other groups would be the use of Pendulums. As anyone who has crafted and used their own pendulums can attest, they develop their own energy and life almost as soon as they are made. [If its not calling you to the pieces and instructing you how to "build its body" even before its made.] Pendulums bond and grow with their "user" and can even work magick separately from our own depending on the quality of energy and relationship. Normally it rests around my neck like any other necklace, only taking it off when it resonates me to dowse or scry. (or while making whoopie though i may have it clasped in hand to feed it and share some Love, + it tends to amplify the tantric energy lol) I have a custom scrying board, but i plan to take my next one a step further than the last, which already included a standard Ouija format, scrying cross-wheel, Futhark, & Enochian alphabets, as well as a sigil wheel with my own magickal alphabet. The next one i make will have a lat.-long. Grid for scrying and remote viewing aide, and a diagram of the energy body according to my own model, for diagnostics of energetic illnesses and/or checking for any abnormalities. Looking for others who use this working tool/companion to gather a collective feedback, and see if anyone has any board mod ideas or unique practices using pendulums they would like to share. Feel free to share any experiences or experiments here!! Much love everyone and thanks for reading, will be back later with more....
will have to check that book out,thank you for the suggestion!  I haven't used mine for communion since a sketchy message from my deceased mother telling me that I was fulfilling gods purpose, which is hilarious and weird since I am sacrilegious and blasphemous af.... not to mention I do not believe that the All takes interest in our personal lives... so that kinda made me quit using my board and just use it for dowsing or yes/no questions...
