if you want any skill Ioakeim you need to dedicate a lot of time. meditation doesn't just give out psychic powers, it has many benefits beyond magick related ones. that statement makes me wonder if you really cannot work with skrying and pendulums or you just couldn't be bothered to put in the time. skrying involves some amount of meditation so i understand why you couldn't clear your mind and relax long enough to try skrying [and i don't know anyone who got skrying on their first try who didn't already have a meditation routine in place] pendulums also require a relaxed state of mind and body, but it requires a long time getting to know the pendulum and which motions mean what for each person and pendulum.
everyone has dormant psychic abilities, you just need to take the time to tap into them. spirits are also all around us, you need to learn to sense and connect with them as well. these both take time and practice.

NekoShema this true, indeed. I avoid scrying and pendulum because of some reasons.
About scrying, I have achieved it from the first time. From the first time I saw the face of an old man (scary one) into the mirror-in my reflection. The issue with me and scrying is that I lose focus and move my eyes too easily. I also avoid scrying because you only see spirits, but aren't able to hear them. There's no point in me if I can't hear them.
With pendulum, I just don't have success. I move the pendulum subconsiously and has No Idea when I move it subconsiously or actually when spirits communicate with me through my subconsious.
However, I had no idea I have to meditate before this two! Thanks for mentioning, I will deffinetely try meditation before both next time.
if you wish to hear spirits it could be a little more difficult. spirits are more often sensed because they're in the room but don't have enough energy to manifest let alone speak. people with stronger psychic abilities as well as the time of year can make verbal communication easier, but it's still not a thing everyone can do [but luckily you can be a fake psychic with ease] you might have better luck with automatic writing or perhaps a Ouija Board if you want more answers instead of seeing spirits. for these as well however you need to be in a trance like state. meditation helps us open up and makes connections to spirits, deities and the high self easier over time.
