Your power hand is the hand that you are most in line with in terms of resonance, frequency or vibrations for doing your spiritual work. It has to do with your birth; it’s more about your spiritual path and life’s vibrational journey in this carnation. It is the side that you are at your strongest or more powerful. Now that doesn’t mean that you aren’t able to cast or do your magical workings at either side, it’s just about finding out what your OPTIMUM side, or power hand is. This may be different from you r dominant or writing hand. For me this is the hand that I use all of my magical tools with or draw all of my symbols with. It is my directing hand if you will. Don’t get worried that you need only to work using this side; it’s just finding out the details about yourself and your abilities.
So, you don’t know to get the information? How are you going to figure it out? I have some suggestions:
- Automatic writing is a good way to let go and allow spirit to speak to you, especially if your answer lies in a symbol rather than letters or letters that are in another language.
- Pendulum dowsing using a letter board to spell out something, animal types, colors, symbols, body shaped or organs, etc. Any kind of list works well.
- Muscle testing similar to pendulum, both are dowsing.
- Ask guides / spirit helper
- For seers, crystal ball gazing, fire scrying, black mirror scrying, or any other type may reveal an image of a name, word, or symbol. Write it down fast!
- Dream preparations. Set your intent to speak with your guides during the dream time.
These are a few off of the top of my head. Try multiple methods; see if your answer varies. It is my experience that once you hear the answer you are looking for or know it; it will resonate with your true being. So try it out. See what you come up with. Discover yourself!
In my opinion, one of the fastest ways to discover any information is through the use of a pendulum. This is how I started out. It was quick, easy, and fun. A chart is a fast way to deal with a list, also just list on a piece of paper works. You don’t need a fancy pendulum to make it work either. A paperclip and thread or yarn is great, other types include: a necklace, a button and string, your favorite charm on a thread or chain of some kind, a fan or light chain, anything that is a weight on some kind of a cord. The key is to set your intention. Determine what direction is a, “yes” answer and which is a, “no” answer. After that you are off and running.
For lists, it is easiest to set your intent with your pendulum to state, “indicate or change” when it hits the correct answer. So for example, when you have a list of animals and you a trying to determine what is the correct answer for an animal question, let’s imagine the answer is a LION, you would set your intent with your pendulum to “indicate or change” rather than “yes” or “no” answers. As you held your pendulum over your list it would remain still until you got to the word or picture of a LION, at which point it would begin to swing. This is your pendulum, “indicating” the correct answer or “changing” from a still position to a moving position. It is really that simple.
In addition to your Power Hand, I suggest using this same technique to figure out your optimum times, directions, even elements. All of this information is useful in layering in spell work. If you are a full moon, springtime, east, fire, person between 3 pm and 10 pm, left hand kind of a person, I would add these energies and try to do my greatest spell work during this combination. You may find that your spells go further are more powerful than you ever thought they could be. This is about discovering the self and doing your inner work. Try it, you might be surprised.
