Hello my beautiful friends, how are you doing today? How was your week? I am feeling pretty good, I mean, I have to be honest. Today as I am writing this episode, I am not in the best head space. I am so much more tired than normal and not really wanting to write that much. Mercury is in retrograde and I am feeling it. so let me tell you What exactly happens when Mercury is in retrograde and how it can affect us. Many astrology advocates believe that the retrograde motion triggers a cycle of misfortune – but what does that actually mean?

Mercury retrograde is an optical illusion which means it looks as if the planet is moving backwards from our view here on earth. Astrologers believe that during this perceived backwards motion, technology and communication could get disrupted, putting a damper on anyone's mood.

And I know that it actually affects a lot of people. 

So How can Mercury retrograde affect you?

Mercury is known by astrologers as the planet to rule expression and communication. It is thought that this retrograde motion will have a negative intention in the astrological realm. It is believed that when Mercury is in retrograde it can lead to

Fallings out with friends

Experiencing misunderstandings

Travel, logic and communication getting disrupted

Emails getting lost

Flights being delayed

Brain fog memory problems, lack of clarity in thinking, poor concentration, difficulty in focusing on any specific matter or topic and a feeling of confusion."


Confusions around work projects which is definitely what I have been feeling lately. Have any of you been going through any of this in these past couple of weeks? If you have, now you know why. It’s all Mercurys fault. Lol just kidding. Maybe not. Lol 

Ok let’s talk about something that will definitely put me and you as well on a higher vibration. Let’s talk about what we are grateful for today. So tell me, what is it that you are grateful for today? Feel the love for whatever that may be. Today, I am thankful for my husband for not only doing the dishes every single night, lol that’s right my friends you heard that correctly my husband does the dishes every night, and he also gets our coffee set up the night before so when we wake up in the morning, the coffee is ready and waiting. I can not tell you how grateful I am for everything that he does for me, Big smiles my friends, big smiles. 

So Before we jump into today’s episode,  I wanted to read to you a review that I received last week on Apple Podcasts, when I read this for the first time, my eyes welled up with tears, and once I read this to you all, you will know exactly why. This review  is from LauraOpfel and this my friends, is what she wrote. “I just wanted to take a moment to share my deep gratitude for your podcast. I was introduced to the manifesting formula by no coincidence, after experiencing a very dark time in my life. My life felt heavy and I found myself questioning whether I was cut out for this world. I had tried many methods to combat my crippling depression over the years, from medication, counseling, light therapy, exercising, supplements. nothing seemed to shake this deep feeling of despair. I often told my husband I felt I had a light within me that was dying. So when my friend suggested I start listening to your podcast I wasn’t optimistic that it would be all that impactful,  but boy was I wrong. 

I started listening to your podcast everyday, as I had many episodes to catch up on, and I found your messages and upbeat perspective really resonate with me. Journaling, keeping a gratitude journal and morning podcast became my routine, a routine that saved my life. 

The manifesting formula was really the catalyst to my healing journey. I went from feeling disempowered and like my life held no meaning, to honoring my place in this world. Taking responsibility for my thoughts and emotions and experiencing true bliss and gratitude for life. It was as though my world flipped on it’s head. I wake up now with a grateful heart and love for the life I have been blessed with. And while I still have habitual patterns Im breaking, I’m proud to say I can step out of circumstances and see these experiences from a greater perspective. Iv’e never felt more empowered and more purposeful in my life. 

So thank you Christine. I don’t know where Id be without your words and thankfully I won’t ever have to be without them. The world and words you share are important and meaningful. I hope you’ll continue to share your light with the world. You never know when the spark can save someones else’s light form going out! Wishing you love, light and blessings beyond measure. 

Oh my gosh! Laura, thank you so much, not only for your vulnerability but for Being able to express yourself knowing that others will read your review. Thank you Thank you thank you for your kind words about the manifesting formula. I am truly grateful that my words have changed your life in many ways. The words that I speak come from our creator, from the Universe. I am just channeling  through my episodes  what is meant to be heard. Laura, thank you for taking the time to listen to each episode and for doing the work within yourself. You are giving yourself the love that you deserve to feel every single day. You are love my friend, we all are, we are all love, we are all one with our creator, one with the universe, one with all. 

OK my friends, let’s dive into today’s episode which is on Pendulms. So for those of you that don’t have one, it’s time to go out and buy one. Lol well only if you want to. But just so you know, it’s another way of communicating with our higher self while not meditating or in prayer. 

So, years ago when I first I heard of them, I knew I had to immediately get my hands on one or two so I could start communicating with the universe to find the answers to so many questions that I had. 

For those of you that don’t know what a pendulum is, it’s a tool that is used to connect to your higher self, ‘our creator by asking questions to help guide, clarify, and raise your awareness,"  "The pendulum itself is simply a small object that is attached to the end of a string. There are many types of pendulums which can be made out of wood, crystal, gemstone, glass, and even metal."

I don’t use this tool to help make every single decision in my life—but when I have a question that I am unclear about or a decision that I need to make that I am unsure about, I pull out my pendulum. Because it really can be useful in so many situations. I actually own two, I keep one in my office, and one on my nightstand,  So why use a A pendulum? I like to use them if I need  or want to gain a little more clarity, connection, and a better understanding of something, because You can ask the pendulum any questions that you may have about your life, love, your health, career, money—the questions can either be simple or complex, because remember, the universe doesn’t know what those words even mean, those are just man made words that we give meaning to. 

How to connect with your pendulum

 feel free to consult with your pendulum whenever you feel the need, some think of it as a more of a spiritual practice. I don’t happen to feel that way. I think of it as my connection to my higher self and I know I will be able to get an answer right away without going into a mediation. When I meditate, I happen to ask questions as well, if I have any that need to be answered. But if it’s in the middle of the day or at night, that is when I go grab my pendulum. I am a morning meditator, I can’t mediate if it’s not in the am.  "I would recommend using you pendulum as much as you feel you need to or want to— it's a personal preference so whenever you feel like finding something out, go grab your pendulum and ask away.,”. "You can use the pendulum to help you with any problem, troubling situation, or something you need more clarity around." Just remember: The pendulum can only answer "yes" or "no" questions. "So make sure to phrase your questions in a way that can allow you to get a clear answer," 

 When holding the pendulum, you are allowing it to connect with your energy which is how it moves . "A pendulum is connecting to you and your energy in that moment of that day," "It's ok to sometimes receive answers and then try again the next day and find the answer may have shifted from the previous day." As you work with the your pendulum, you'll learn how it moves and how it responds to questions—but I will get into more details later in this episode .

When you go to buy your pendulum, it's kind of like when you walk into a gemstone shop if any of you have, and find what speaks to you, what you gravitate towards. "Choosing the right pendulum is like choosing the right crystal—there is no right or wrong," ever. There is just what feels good for you.  You want to "Trust your intuition and allow yourself to be shown which pendulum is the correct one for you.  When you are picking up a pendulum You want to ask yourself, how does it feel ? Focus on the feeling, and you will then know which one is meant for you." For example If you're into certain crystals like maybe citrine, tigers eye, rose quartz or jade, or many of the other beautiful crystals as a pendulum then yes go buy one of those, but I would still check to see how it feels in the palm of your hand . 

When Choosing a Pendulum: It is important to allow a pendulum to choose you, rather than the other way around. Honestly I think it’s super important to choose your pendulum in person. Because you want to feel it and test it out. Online you have no idea if your energy is Vibing with the crystal or metal that they send you.   Touching it and feeling the temperature change or even a subtle vibration definitely means it’s the one for you. Which is why I recommend buying one in person. If it looks and feels good for you, then you want to listen you your inner goddess, your intuition, Because your higher self will never lie to you. 

It’s also important before you take your new found friend that will give you all the answers you have been wanting through your energy, you want to ask it a few questions to make sure this is the pendulum for you.   Start with what you know: To get the pendulum going, ask questions you already know the answer to. "For example, ask if your name is what your name is, and 'do I live in the city or town that you live in. I like to add in a question that isn’t true to see if it will say no instead of yes. "This can help you connect with the pendulum and get to know it’s directional swings and how it will communicate with you."

Ok, So After you've used your intuition to pick out the exact pendulum for you that's absolutely perfect in every way, you are now ready to consult this incredible tool for guidance. 

1. First before doing anything you will want to Cleanse you pendulum: As with crystals, pendulums need cleansing too. "Cleanse the pendulum with sage, or outside under a full moon, you can soak it in sea salt if the material or crystal is water and salt friendly,  you can even cleanse it by holding it under cold running water,  or  you can cleanse it by setting a mental intention to free it of possible picked up energies along it’s way. 

2. Second you want to Prep your questions: "When looking for clarity or guidance around a situation, have more than one question prepared about the topic you are wanting to find out about to help you gain as much insight, and as much guidance as possible,”. I want you to understand, sometimes The pendulum might not always work. "Sometimes a pendulum will not want to answer or not be open to answering a particular question at that time,"  "This can be shown as a separate directional swing or the pendulum might simply remain still." For me when this happens, my pendulum will remain still, like I didn’t even ask a question. Lol this is normal at times. Don’t get frustrated, just come back a few hours or a few days later, and ask the same questions. Remember. Our energy has to be on a vibration that is more neutral or higher than on a low vibration. You don’t want to ask for answers when your energy is low. 

3. Third, you want to Learn how your pendulum moves: "It's key to learn what is 'yes' and what is 'no,'" before asking the pendulum a question. you  want to figure out how it will speak to you. "Take a moment to find a comfortable seat and quiet your mind. Take a few deep  breaths to open up and clear your mind, body, and spirit. Holding the pendulum in your dominant hand with the chain or top link between your thumb and index finger, or if your pendulum has a stone at the top of the chain you can position the stone in your dominant hand in between the index finder and your middle finger with the stone on top. You want to  ask your pendulum 'show me what yes looks like and it will move in a certain direction, then you want to ask 'show me what no looks like,’  When you do this,  the pendulum will either swing vertically, horizontally, or in circular motions. You will want to pay attention to what each answer looks like—for instance, if it went up and down vertically when you said 'show me yes,' that is how it will respond in an affirmative way to your question. "You could also ask 'show me what neutral looks like if you want that option too," Im a yes and no kinda girl lol , so I have never done that before, but that is an option as well. 

4. So like I said earlier, to get the pendulum going,  you will want to ask questions you already know the answer to. "This will help you to connect with your pendulum and get to know its directional swings and how it will communicate with you. Let me give you a few examples of the kind of question that you want to ask First I want you to remember, they need to be yes or no questions. If you're pregnant You can’t ask the question like will I have a boy or a girl? You can ask, will I give birth to a boy? Or will I give birth to a girl? Though You do want to be as specific as possible. You would want to rephrase that question to will I give birth to a girl during this pregnancy? The more specific the more clear your answer will be. You can ask, will I get promoted by June of 2022. Or Will I get married before the end of 2022.  

" It’s important to Understand the Directional Swings that your pendulum is giving you : Pendulums swing in vertical straight lines, horizontal straight lines, and in circular movements. so your pendulum will either move side-to-side, front and back, clockwise, counterclockwise, or in an elliptical motion, and even at times in a bobbing movement up and down, which often indicates a strong affirmative action. Which has happened to me a few times, and I was like, what is happening here? I ran quickly to find out the answer through my favorite….the Internet google has all the answers. Also before I forget, Make sure to completely stop your pendulums motion between questions to clear any lingering energies that may pertain to the previous question.

5. My last  and final tip when using a pendulum is that you want to Remain open, you want to be open minded: Using a pendulum is all about being at ease. "Just like when you are going through a meditation, try to simply allow the pendulum to communicate freely with you,"  "The more open you are to receiving, the easier you and the pendulum will be able to communicate with one another. And remember, like any practice, you can enjoy the experience and trust in your ability to connect because you already have your own answers." The pendulum is just a tool,  that's here to help you get closer to your own intuition, by trusting that you have all the answers within you, because you do. You  my friends all have your own inner truth, every single one of you. Every answer is within you, they always have been and they always will be, you just need to be open by being aware and by listening.
