Pendulums at the moment are a bit like trying to find that elusive unicorn or those rare hen teeth! Whether it’s because of shipping costs and delays, it’s proving a mission to get any! I have found these however, for all those who like a dabble in divination, those starting out or those who are an old hat! Each one is made from natural crystals/ gemstones in their more rough form, these are just very lightly tumbled pieces keeping a more natural shape. Great value little items, especially if you are starting out or just simply want to add to your ever growing collection of crystally bits!

Dalmatian Jasper: Associated with the Base/Root (1st) Chakra
Keywords: Release, Grounding, Organising, Potential,
A playful stone that reconnects us to our child-like selves, which may seem contrary to its sensible grounding nature, but when we allow ourselves to become grounded and nurtured, it frees of the constraining portions of our lives and leaves room for a bit of frivolity and silliness. If you are feeling a bit stuck or haven’t grounded yourself for a while, healing dowsing of the root chakra may free up a bit of “space” for energy to flow again. This release may bring a enhanced decisiveness and increase in organisational skills - once you’ve got over the silliness of course! It is with child like wonder; when we view things as new, the possibilities can come flooding in as paths become unblocked. Using Dalmatian jasper can assist in breaking down barriers you have created, which may be holding you back from your true potentials.
