Intellect vs. Intuition:
How to know which is which NOW!
You're too sensitive.
If you’re anything like me, that’s a phrase you definitely grew up with. Sensitivity, supposedly your greatest gift, can take you down faster than anything. It can spin you into overwhelm, anxiety and fatigue. That is, when you don’t know what to do with it.
Hi! I'm Alexis.
Like you, I've spent a lifetime sensing things. Without a language or context to understand my experiences, they translated into total overwhelm, stress, anxiety and depletion. It wasn't until I developed a chronic illness that I was forced inward to connect the dots. One day I woke up and said to myself, "I FEEL EVERYTHING". That awareness changed everything. It propelled me into the discovery of my life's work, Chakredy®.
Now I train and certify practitioners in the Chakredy® Framework. I teach others how to build an intuitive context and vocabulary to make sense of what they've been sensing all along.
If you’ve been on the pendulum track, thinking that pendulums are unreliable predictive tools or have had an unfulfilling experience with pendulums in the past, I invite you to check this video out.
Learn why these sparkly tools stand out from the rest.
I've heard people talk about them as if they cripple intuitive abilities and create dependency.
For me, these associations could not be further from my own pendulum truth (as I’ve addressed before in the video titled why my pendulum is not a crutch).
Today I want to talk about why pendulums. Specifically, why Chakredy® pendulums?
Here are a few things that set this pendulum work apart:
1. Different pendulums do different things.
The level 1+2 training works with an assessment pendulum. This is the go-to worker bee that helps to identify and prioritize energetic imbalances within the chakra system and organ energies. In the level 3 advanced work, the clearing pendulum addresses interferences and supports energy clearing and what’s termed “circuit” work. We also use a gorgeous, very special, vary magical healing pendulum that supports container creation and energetic repatterning.
2. They’re Chakredy® field specific.
These babies are intentionally created and attuned to work within the Chakredy® field of assessment and healing. Think of it like speaking a consistent pendulum language. The pendulums are extensions of the Chakredy® field and bridge this wisdom with the higher consciousness of the person directly engaging with the field.
3. Different Movements mean different things.
Over the years, specific pendulum movements have been revealed to communicate specific things in the energy. For example, there are 4 core presentations within the chakra assessment, the pendulum will move in one of these four specific ways to communicate how the energy is presenting within that center.
4. They’re built to work.
These pendulums are built to work hard. They have been handcrafted to be held comfortably, optimize energy flow with their magnificent hand hammered copper tops and move with fluidity and ease. And believe me, these can crank out some super movements like it’s NBD. Actually, it takes quite a bit to harm or break one.
5. They’re crystal clear.
I’m biased. That’s true. That being said, these are the clearest, most specific and powerful pendulum tools that I have come across. This has a lot to do with how they are made, the person that makes them and the healing connection that we share.
6. These pendulums are badass boundary holders.
Many people who work with energy have a difficult time separating self from other and tend to easily take in and internalize other people’s energy. These pendulums help to establish a clear boundary so that the energy is communicated through the pendulum presentations/movements without needing to be processed in the physical body through sensation and leading to increased possibility of internalizing.
7. They’re physical tools and they’re sacred.
They are physical objects that respond to energy and harmonize the relationship between the intellect and intuition. The mind has a much easier time staying out of the way when it knows that the pendulum will deliver through clear, consistent and tangible physical movement providing the “proof” the intellect craves to reveal energetic presentations, shifts and patterns.
8. They’re grounding.
Kind of an interesting way to relate to them but when you are working with these bad boys, it’s much easier to remain in your body, aware as an observer and allow the energy to flow. What’s happening in the energy is shown through movements, so instead of trying to figure things out with your head, you can remain grounded and present in your physical body.
AND a million other reasons but I’ll stop there. You get the point. They are NOT your typical pendulums.
My Official Bio
Chakredy® Founder, Alexis Saloutos, MS, CN, holds her degrees in nutrition from Bastyr University. She has trained in numerous modalities including energy healing techniques, bodywork, muscle testing, flower essences and more.
Certified as a nutritionist with a decade long personal training career, I’ve been schooled in a profession obsessed with results. With an ability to recognize patterns and observe shifts, I’ve always sought a way to quantify progress without turning to scales and calories.
The Chakredy® System is a surprise gift I received from the universe. After years of working with a very special crystal pendulum, I recognized patterns, connecting various pendulum movements with energetic impressions along the chakras.
Four very specific presentations became apparent. These presentations led me to identify and prioritize energetic imbalances within the chakra and organ energies. By connecting these priority points, I observed dramatic and quantifiable energetic shifts. It was reproducible. I began training others.

"The Chakredy® Training has been everything I hoped it would be and more. I've always been interested in energy and always wanted to know more about chakras, but I wasn't energy practitioner before starting. I didn't even know if I was a full blown empath. Alexis is brilliant and the program is amazing and filled with so much information. It is laid out beautifully and simply, full of magic, and I can't recommend it highly enough to anyone who is interested in this work. And YES you can develop your intuition.

"Alexis Saloutos is a creative magical force. Chakredy® embodies her high vibration healing energy. Her unique system identifies the root causes for energetic imbalances with integrity. I use an energetic assessment technique called Autonomic Response Testing, Chakredy® remedies test very positively and my patients love them. I was pleasantly surprised by the power of her Dreamscape blend, I had the most vivid dreams the first day I started this potent remedy. It is a joy knowing Alexis and experiencing her medicine."
