I'd like to add that when you're using the pendulum, you can ask it to make the movements bigger and larger. With you feeling that another is moving the pendulum, that's what you want because you shouldn't be the one moving a pendulum. As for your hand trembling, it's not an issue with pendulums as the energy should override such physical movements.
Seems to me that you're off to a good start.
"The Children of God were moulded by the Hand of God which is called Awen..."
The Kolbrin Bible, chapter 5, vs 1
"But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:
Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee."
Job 12: 7 and 8 (KJV)
