In the light of your white candle, draw a circle and divide it into sections to equal the number of rooms in the house in which you lost the item. Write the name of each room on a section. The item of significance in this spell, could be a wedding ring, if perhaps you've lost one, (been there, done that) or some other thing that is pertinent to what has been lost. Tie your significant item or pendulum to the end of the white ribbon. Holding the other end of the ribbon, place the pendulum about 1 to 1 1/2 " above the "map". Concentrate on the item you've lost, and on keeping your hand steady. The pendulum will begin to swing, and will pull you toward a room if the item is indeed in the house. Next step, search the room it led you to! From personal experience, if the pendulum swings in a clockwise motion, the item is generally just misplaced. If it swings counterclockwise, suspect foul play.
