Pendulum Dowsing


Dowsing is a way to find answers normally not available to our senses. You can use dowsing tools, like pendulums or divining rods, you can also use your body's reaction.

The most popular dowsing tool is a pendulum.

What makes dowsing pendulum move? When we ask a question (that can be answered as "yes" or "no") we want to find the answer to - we contact our subconscious
mind and the answer is in a form of involuntary muscle movement, that causes the pendulum to move in a certain way.

We need to program our pendulum's movement to be able to recognize "yes" and "no" answer.

Programming Pendulum's Response

We can approach this in two ways: one - just ask to be shown a pendulum response for "yes" and "no". This is preferred method as each of us is different.

Just ask: "what is my pendulum movement for "yes" answer" and the pendulum will start moving certain way. It could be clockwise or counterclockwise rotation, back and forth or sideways. Do the same for a "no" answer. Try to remember it and stick to it.

The other method is to "force" certain movement - e.g. back and forth for "yes" and sideways movement for a "no" answer.

Asking Dowsing Questions

Your question needs to be in a form that your subconscious mind will understand and interpret correctly.

The subconscious mind is like a child and you need to be fairly precise in formulating your questions so there is no double meaning or room for wrong interpretation.

For example you don't ask: "Is this vitamin good?" as it's much too general. You can ask: "Will this vitamin benefit my body now?". The "now" is a very important part as
your body's need do change.

You can test many different vitamins and supplements that way to find out which are the most appropriate for you at the time of asking.

Next - you will be able to get more complex dowsing answers.

Using Dowsing Charts

Say you found out you need a particular supplement, now you need to know how much you need at a time and how often, also how long should you take it.

The best way of checking that is by using a dowsing chart. Dowsing chart could be a half circle or even a line with numbers or different "scenarios".

The most common chart is a percentage chart, from zero to a 100.

To use a dowsing chart like the one above - simply ask a question and place the pendulum over the center of the chart. It will start swinging around the half-circle till it stops pointing to a number. That number is the answer to your question.

When dowsing events that will take place in the future - it is the best to use probability rather than a particular outcome as there are many variables that may change it.
Dowsing pendulums come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and are made from a variety of materials - metal, wood, crystal, etc.
What makes one material better than the other?
That really depends on who you ask! Some claim that crystal dowsing pendulums have "higher vibration" and thus are better for spiritual dowsing, other say that only living materials like wood can be used, others yet say that the minute lead content in brass will make brass pendulums useless...
Well, I've been dowsing for over 30 years and I've used dowsing pendulums made out of clay, glass, steel, brass, wood, gold, silver, crystals, heck, I even used car keys and a carrot held by the greens when I needed to dowse something and didn't have a pendulum on me!
It is not the material of which the pendulum is made that makes dowsing possible, it's the dowser him- or herself! It's a faculty of the subconscious mind that allows us to access this normally not available information.
That's why deviceless dowsing (dowsing without any tools) is possible, although most dowsers still need some form of dowsing tool as an "anchor" or confirmation device and dowsing pendulum is a tool of choice.

Pendulum Dowsing - the introduction

The first thing we - need to know how to hold dowsing pendulum. The "classic" way to hold your pendulum's string or chain is to use the thumb, the index and the middle fingers of your dominant hand held together with your wrist arched. Of course you will find your own, most comfortable way of holding it after a while, but it's good to start with a known position.

Now - another controversial thing is the length of the string or the chain. To me the most comfortable length is about 1-3 inches from the top of the dowsing pendulum. Any shorter and you may sacrify the accuracy, any longer and you may wait a long time for the movement. Of course it's your own preference. There is a theory about the resonant length of the string, but personally I haven't found it to be of much use - try swinging a pendulum on a 21" string! It would take an hour to get a reading! For me that would be a sure way not to bother with pendulum dowsing.
