A RECENT guest on A Place in the Sun left viewers baffled with her unusual methods of choosing a property.
Presenter Jonnie Irwin welcomed house-hunter Daniela and mum Janet to the Channel 4 Show.
Das Paar, who hail from east Yorkshire, were off to western Madeira, Portugal, and had a decent budget of £100,000 to play with.
Daniela works as a holistic therapist, practices the likes of Shamanic drumming, and is very much into her crystal healing.
And she’d brought a “spiritual guide” with her for the house hunting process, in the form of a large crystal pendulum around her neck.
Jonnie took the mother daughter pair for a viewing in Calheta, where they visited a two bedroom property with a gorgeous view.
Daniela was instantly taken by the home, stating it was “nice and cosy, it’s like a cottage.”
She added that “The kitchen is absolutely brilliant, it’s big, it’s airy and light.
“Love the wall tiles, very traditional Portuguese. I don’t feel any bad energy here, that’s good.”
Following a house tour, Daniela pulled out her big pink pendulum to use it as a “litmus test” on the house.

Jonnie joked: “I did see you sort of shaking that earlier on.”
Sie erklärte: “If I ask the question ‘is this house for me’ and it will give me the answer yes or no.
“I use it a lot in life, for different things.”
Whilst her mum Janet called it “bonkers,” Daniela was unphased.
She asked the necklace as she spun it “So is this house here, the house for me?
“It’s anti-clockwise… So it’s a no!”
Jonnie was baffled at how quick she was to disregard the house, stressing that she was very keen in the property beforehand.
Those who tuned into the show were on his side, and instantly took to Twitter to discuss.
Man schrieb: “Crystal says no to that one, HAHAHAH.”
Ein anderer scherzte: “Buy or fly…oh let me ask my pendulum.”

Die Kommentare gingen weiter: “Pendulum! What a crock of s***!”
And another viewer pointed out: “Mum’s face when she whacked out that pendulum.”
