In terms of asking questions?
Can you ask questions about how others feel? In my understand the subconscious is attached to the collective unconscious.
Some example of questions I would ask the pendulum. Let me know if I need to reword the questions
Does "target’s name " she like me?
Is “target’s name” annoyed with me ?
Does “target’s name” mind if I text her?
Stuff like that to find out more about feelings and other people thoughts.
I’ve read Alpha Scorpii’s Easy Pendulum Tutorial. Which was helpful.
