B is for Believe in yourself!

Belief in yourself and in your abilities is so important in the craft...

isn't she pretty!
I should have written this yesterday when I had a firm belief in my abilities as a witch and an over abundant amount of trust in my use of my pendulum.

You see, this one pendulum has never steered me wrong, since I started working with it, it was like it was made for me and me alone. Always answered my questions with great accuracy and family always asked me to use it for finding out the answer of things. I was asked by my witch daughter to figure out the sex of her baby when she was barely pregnant and I was right and so proud of myself for Believing in my abilities and others believing in me.

Until today... my daughter in-law asked me if their 7 week old fetus was ok as she had a bad feeling and she is prone to miscarrying.
I pulled out my purple amethyst chevron pendulum and we did the routine asking of test questions then moved on to that question and it was swinging front to back swiftly saying YES the pregnancy was fine...
5 hours later she was rushed by ambulance to the hospital as she had started to cramp and bleed...
They lost the baby and not only did i loose my Grandbaby, who my pendulum said was a boy, but also my Belief in my abilities.

I recently had a miscarriage at 7 weeks (October 2011). My cards and dreams led me to believing that everything was fine. I didn't cramp, I never bled. Went for the ultrasound to find that I miscarried. It was a shock. I felt betrayed and weak. Lied to. The blood tests confirmed it, two weeks later, I started my period--a bloody, gritty, clotty 2 month reminder of the child that wasn't meant to be. It's hard, but...I was reassured by the Spirits and I am doing better.

It's a slow process, having my faith shaken and reconnecting, but I am regaining my confidence in my abilities. I don't have a clear cut answer for you, other than to give it time. It's a test. Blessings to you and your family. You have my sympathies. ~)O(~

Sherry these things happen for a reason. Do not doubt your abilities as the previous commenter said "you are being tested" Hugs to you all

Faith is not an easy thing, faith in yourself is even harder. Things come into our lives to test us, to see if we will falter or show faith in ourselves and our decisions, hold true to yourself and all will be well.

*hugs and love to you and your daughter*

I'm so sorry Sherry. When reading this the first thing I thought was that the Spirit of the baby is in fact o.k., it was sent to your daughter-in-law for a reason (which may take time to come to light to her) and his job was done. That doesn't mean his Spirit wasn't o.k. Also, there are times when I consult my cards (that are like a third arm to me they are so close to me) and they end up confusing me more than when I started. When that happens I take it as a sign that whatever I am asking about is not to be known to me at that time.

Some things are bigger than we will ever comprehend or understand.

I am so sorry for yours, your son's and your daughter-in-law's loss.

I'm really sorry to read this. :( Light thoughts for you, your son and his wife.

When it comes to cards, pendulum, etc I never use them for someone I feel deeply involved with, because I don't want to "influence" the answer that I will receive with what I want it to be. You should not lost belief in your abilities because (perhaps) it only was your love for your daughter-in-law and your Grandbaby that moved your pendulum and gave you that answer.

I'm sorry for your loss.

Before doubting your abilities you need to look at how you asked the question. Maybe what you wanted to ask and what was actually asked were different.

Also, as someone has already mentioned, maybe your desire was transmitted to the pendulum and it over road the true answer.
