How does Pendulum Dowsing work?
A Dowsing Pendulum is quite simply a tool that is used to check what the subconscious already knows. The Pendulum itself is an extension of our inner senses which creates a visual representation of our inner energy changes. The Pendulum amplifies small muscle movements that result from changes in the subtle energy flow through the body. Yes we are in effect making the Pendulum move, but on an subconscious level. We are not sitting there and making obvious Pendulum swings, It is more a tiny reflex that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
My personal belief and indeed that of many other dowsers is that we all come to the earth plane to learn lessons. We reincarnate and live many lifetimes. I believe that we all come here with a blue print and our life ahead is pretty much set out for us in such a way that we can learn the lessons we need to learn. On a subconscious level we know everything about our previous lives and everything that our current and future lives have in store for us. Only when we can access the subconscious can we access this information. Past life regression is just one example of how we can access information through the subconscious.
Some Good Advice before you Start
The power of the human mind should never be underestimated. The trick for effective Pendulum Dowsing is to stay relaxed and in a neutral state of mind. Let's say you are asking your Pendulum for an answer to a question, and there is emotional investment in the answer then you will receive the answers you want to receive from the Pendulum, which might not be the correct answer. When this happens it is the conscious working and not the subconscious.
Some Examples of how a Pendulum might be used:
- Simple questioning of the Pendulum resulting in Yes, No and Not Sure answers.
- Dowsing using lists and maps.
- Dowsing over the body to locate and balance the chakras
Getting Started with Pendulum Dowsing
First of all make sure that you select a Dowsing Pendulum that feels right for you. This is very important. You will be working with your Pendulum on a very close level so your connection to your Pendulum should be like any other relationship.
Hold your Pendulum between the thumb and the forefinger. Remember "lightly does it!". If you are tense you will consciously affect the results.
Now establish how your Pendulum responds to specific answers. For example Yes, No and Not Sure answers. This could be likened to a control test. Ask your Pendulum a question for which you already know the answer. For example, lets say your birthday is 1st March. Ask the Pendulum "Is my Birthday on the 1st March?". Obviously the answer is Yes. Now see how the Pendulum responds. Does it move forward and backward, does it move side to side, from left to right or vice versa, or does it move in a clockwise or anti clockwise direction? Make a note of the Pendulums movement for your Yes answer.
Then ask another question, this time one which you already know the answer to be No. Again make a note of the Pendulum movement for your No response. You should notice a very fine and distinct difference between the Pendulum movements for your Yes and No responses. This doesn't always happen on the first few attempts, It takes time, patience and a bit of practice. Again make sure you are relaxed and in a neutral and open state of mind. If you focus or concentrate too hard or consciously want to receive a certain answer this will affect the results.
Sometimes we ask the Pendulum sensitive questions or questions for which we are not yet ready to know the answers. With practice and a good connection with your Pendulum, you will find that in time it will be prove to be a very valuable tool.
Remember! Effective Pendulum Dowsing is only as good as the Questioning Techniques
If you ask a vague question you might not get an accurate or definitive response. Let's say you are single and looking for romance. Asking the Pendulum a question like " Will I meet somebody nice" is a very vague question, Sure, nice people come in and out of our lives all of the time. A better way of asking might be to ask " Will I meet a suitable Romantic partner in the near future". Lets then say you get a definite Yes response. Then you can go on to ask even more specific questions. For example " Will this Romantic partner come into my life in the next 6 months" and so on like that.
Dowsing with Lists and Maps
Dowsing with lists and maps is highly effective. This is great if you are seeking more than just a Yes or No response to a specific question or when there are multiple choices. Dowsing using a Map is also very good for locating a missing object.
Let's say you have decided to spend your 2 weeks holiday in Spain, but cannot decide between the 4 resorts that have caught your eye. Hold your Pendulum over each of the 4 resorts in your holiday brochure and ask the Pendulum "Give me a Yes response to which one of these 4 holiday resorts is right for me at this time"
You want to Buy some new Healing Crystals and Gemstones. Write down or print off a list of the gem stones that you want to choose from. Hold the Pendulum over each of the gem stone names as you work your way down the paper. Ask a question like "Please indicate which Crystals or Gemstones I need for healing in my life as this moment in time" If you do not receive a response, move back up the paper in reverse order. Note how the Pendulum moves on a certain gem stone name. You may get several responses if you have a long list.
Try moving the Pendulum gently over the paper at different angles. Note your Yes responses. I bet you get the same response no matter which way you dowse across the paper! I tested this technique with a colleague of mind who had never even used a Pendulum before. I gave him a list of the tumbled stones we stocked at the time. He dowsed for about 10 minutes in all different ways, but there was no escaping the specific responses he got to 3 of the Tumbled Stones on the list.
Locating a missing object. Let's say you are missing the key to the garage. You know you put the key down in the dining room. Draw a simple map of the dining room on a sheet of paper. It doesn't have to be fancy. Just draw a simple outline of the room, marking the key features, for example a fireplace, dining room table, window and any other key features like cabinets and dressers. Dowse with your Pendulum by moving the Pendulum horizontally from left to right or vice versa over the map, starting at the top and working down. Ask a question like "Please move for me at the location of my missing garage key". Mark with an X the points on the map where the Pendulum makes a definite movement. Then do this again vertically on the map by moving the Pendulum down and back up the map as you work your way across from left to right or vice versa. Again note any definite Pendulum movements. I have tested this method on numerous accuracy with very good results. You can even use this method for fun whilst playing hide and seek with small objects.
Pendulum Dowsing to Locate and Balance the Chakras
Pendulum Dowsing can be used in much the same way to identify the chakras and which chakras are out of balance. You can move your Pendulum gently over the body (either your own or that of a friend or client) and the Pendulum should move at the point of each chakra location.
