We Tried Talking To Ghosts With A Pendulum

We Tried Talking To Ghosts With A Pendulum

– I think there are ghosts, for sure. So, it’s just a matter of how much we want to interact, I guess. (eerie music) – One tool that people use
to communicate with ghosts is a pendulum. The movements of a pendulum
are supposed to give you the answers to yes or no questions. But my friend Loryn is very
good at using a pendulum, so I asked her to come
show us how to use it and see if we can talk to any
ghosts that are in this room. And check to see if my
haunted Ebay doll is haunted. You can also use a pendulum
to find a lost item, so I’m gonna hide something
that belongs to Loryn and see if she can find it
using only the pendulum. – The pendulum is a
symmetrical, weighted object on a string or a chain,
it can be anything. It can be keys or a bead. Most often, it’s crystals. Some people think that it’s
tapping into a higher power, or like a spiritual guide. For me, I think of it more
as like a way to figure out what my subconscious knows
that I might not realize yet. So the way a pendulum works
is you hold it in your hand and let it hang, and you
ask it questions yes or no, and it’ll make different motions for yes and different motions for no. For me, for yes it makes
circles, and for no it makes straight lines, and it’s
different for everyone. For other people it might
go left or right for yes, or shake for no. I was on vacation with my husband
and we went in this little crystal shop, and I picked one up. It worked like immediately for
me and really freaked me out. And for my husband it didn’t move at all, so I figured it was something special. The first time you use it, you can pick it up and say “show me yes.” (eerie orchestra music) It’s starting to make a circle. There it goes. And then “show me no.” It does a straight line for me, but it might do a
different movement for you. Usually to like set it, to
start, i’ll ask it something like “Do I have brown hair?”
to make sure it’s working. And it takes a little bit
to start, but you can see it’s starting to make a small circle. And it gets bigger as I go. Yes, yes you have brown hair. Or I’ll ask it a question
that’s definitely a no, like “am I seven feet tall?” See it’s doing a straight
line back and forth. So that’s a big no. I try to clear my mind as much as possible and just focus on the question. I say thanks and I reset it like this. – [Joanna] Wait, did you
say that you thank it after it tells you something? – I do. (laughs) No one says to do that but I do. – Do you wanna try asking it a question that only I know the answer to? – Yeah. Does Joanna have a tattoo? (eeric music) No. – That’s correct, I don’t have a tattoo. Let’s get to some ghost stuff. – Okay. I’ve never used the pendulum
for ghost questions, so this should be
interesting and terrifying. Other than Joanna and I, is
there a spirit in the room? It’s saying yes. Is the spirit friendly? – [Joanna] Okay, that’s a good question. – It said it doesn’t know. (Joanna giggles) If it like shakes or goes
back and forth it means it just doesn’t know. Does the spirit need our help? Oh shit, that’s a strong yes. – [Joanna] Oh crap, I’m scared as hell. – How do we help it? Uh, I actually have no
idea how to help spirits. Google it, maybe we should
just google it, let’s just see. (eerie sounds) Do you want us to help you cross over? No. – [Joanna] No, okay. – Is the help that you need
something we can provide? No, no. – [Joanna] No, okay, well. – That’s too bad. – [Joanna] So this is
Mary, my haunted doll. – Hi, Mary. Whew. – [Joanna] Did she give
you a weird feeling? Yes. Is this doll Mary haunted? Won’t say. Is the ghost of a child
attached to Mary the doll? It won’t say. – [Joanna] It won’t say. – Is there positive energy
associated with Mary the doll? Yes. Does Mary like living in our office? Yes. – [Joanna] Oh, that’s a relief. – Yeah. One of the ways to use pendulums
is to find lost objects. – [Joanna] So it’s sort of like playing hot and cold with the pendulum? – Exactly. – [Joanna] Can I hide
something that belongs to you? What is something important to you that if you lost it, you’d
really wanna find it? – Um, I guess my wedding ring. [Joanna] Can I hide your wedding ring? – If you promise not to lose it, alright. – [Joanna] Thank you. I promise I’ll keep it safe. – Bye wedding ring. – So Loryn actually gave
me her wedding ring. I’m gonna hide it in the office and see if she can use
the pendulum to find it. (eerie string music) I’ve hidden your ring. – Alright. [Joanna] Do you have a
strategy, how do you feel? – I’m feeling a little nervous. Sway to where my wedding ring is. Could be either direction. – [Joanna] So it was swinging this way. – It was just like this. – [Joanna] Okay. – That way’s kind of out the
window so, lets go this way. – [Joanna] Okay. – Is my wedding ring inside of something? No. Is my wedding ring with somebody? No, Joanna you lost my wedding ring. Point to where my wedding ring is, please. We’ll go that way. Point to where my wedding ring is. It’s hard because it goes both ways. – [Joanna] Yeah. – It’s definitely this way. Is my wedding ring to the left, of me? No, so it has to be the right. Is my wedding ring on somebody’s desk? Yes. Is someone sitting at the
desk where my wedding ring is? No. Can you point to where my
wedding ring is right now? This way. (orchestra music) It’s pretty good, it helped. Went to the right side of the office. I’m impressed, and I’m
glad to get this back. I felt like it definitely
helped me find it. (crunching noise) Ooh, why is everything so, ooh. That’s a ghost. – [Joanna] That’s a ghost for sure. What should we ask it? – Was that a ghost? That’s a hard yes. – [Joanna] Okay, well. – That’s a wrap. When I got home, I opened my bag and it was broken into two pieces. Even though I put it
in a really safe spot. I read online that if
there’s a lot of energy going through it, a crystal can break. So, maybe that’s what happened? I’ve never seen this happen before though. [Joanna] So do you feel
like we overused it? – Yeah, I do. I think especially talking to ghosts was just too much for it. (eerie sounds)
