Pendulum Dowsing 101

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

Pendulum dowsing can be achieved with any weighted body suspended by a flexible cord, chain, string, thread or stem. Pendulum dowsing has been used for over a thousand years and some say over two thousand years.

Most dowsers have a favorite dowsing tool and the pendulum happens to fill this favorite choice by most master dowsers. The reason for the pendulum’s popularity is that it is small, compact, convenient and can be used for most dowsing tasks.

Pendulum dowsing requires just a pendulum. However there are thousands of renditions of pendulums using glass, crystal, metal, magnets, rings, cork, wood, and some with hollowed chambers in which to place a “witness” or sample of the object you are searching for. Any pendulum will work to practice with but you may want a specialized pendulum for serious dowsing. Eventually pendulum dowsers experiment with designing and or making a pendulum that fits their own criteria.

Each dowser will develop his or her own personalized techniques in which to pendulum dowse. As you continue to dowse you will realize that your method of dowsing is a personal science that when combined with a journal or diary will improve with practice. Dowsing like an art skill will improve if you practice correctly. Find a mentor (master dowser) to critique your dowsing results.

These exercises will instill correct practice until you can develop a better degree of proficiency and develop your own methods of dowsing.

    1. Learn how to hold the pendulum,
    2. Learn to “adjust” the pendulum,
    3. Learn the 3 basic movements of the pendulum,
    4. Develop your dowsing Protocols,
    5. Learn how to use a “witness”,
    6. Learn where, when and in who’s presence to dowse or not to dowse,
    7. Practice, Practice, Practice.

Holding the Pendulum

    • Much has been said of the correct way to suspend the pendulum. Hold the string between the thumb and index finger pointing down.
    • Remember your entire body is an antenna to receive energy. If you were to extend the remainder of your fingers, separated, you would extend your antenna mass greater than a balled fist.
    • One would usually hold the pendulum with the hand that you write with. If you are right handed hold the pendulum with your right hand. If you are left handed hold the pendulum with your left.

Balancing the Pendulum

    • Adjust the pendulum by holding the string only about 1 1/2” above the pendulum.
    • Now start the pendulum swinging, in a straight line, aligned with the ARM holding the pendulum.
    • Slowly extend the string above the map, table, picture or blank paper while concentrating on the object being dowsed for, until the pendulum begins to circle in a clockwise direction.
    • The pendulum will be adjusted for pendulum dowsing of this specific dowsing task at this time.

Basic movements of the pendulum

The basic pendulum movements are:

    1. A clockwise circle,
    2. A counter clockwise circle and
    3. A straight swinging back and forth.

After you have “adjusted” the pendulum,

    a) Start the pendulum swinging, in a straight line, aligned with your ARM. Ask out loud for the pendulum to give you a “yes” response. Make a note of the direction the pendulum is moving.
    b) Now ask out loud for the pendulum to give you a “no” response. Record this movement.
    c) Remember that if your question is unclear, convoluted or cannot be answered with a yes or no you may receive a neutral response from the pendulum. The movements of the pendulum may not be in the same direction as another dowser, that is ok.

Develop your own protocols. (Add to these as you develop success.)

    • Have a fresh paper pad and pen available
    • Write down the question before you ask the question.
    • Ask clear and concise questions that can be answered with a yes or no.
    • Be well, under no artificial influence (alcohol, drugs, etc.), refreshed (not tired).
    • Be comfortable, sitting is fine, do not rest your elbows on the table.

Dowsing with a Witness

A witness is not another person. The witness is a similar item to the item being dowsed for. If you are dowsing for lost keys, place a key in the pendulum hand or press a key to the forehead while asking your questions. If you are searching for a pet, the witness could be a toy or article worn by the pet.

Where and when to dowse and in the presence of who?

    • Always dowse in a place where you can “clear the mind”, not be interrupted for any reason other than fire!
    • If another dowser is present have an agreement that only one will dowse at a time and the other will remain behind the active dowser.
    • Dowse only when refreshed and rested.
    • Never dowse in a crowd or in the presence of naysayers.
    • Dowsing is a learned scientific art, if you feel the need to put on a show, stop dowsing and join an acting school.

Practice

Your need to practice pendulum dowsing will be rewarded with accuracy. If you follow the steps above you will train yourself to be disciplined, and gain the ability to have your subconscious mind operate and communicate with you while you are awake. Little practice produces little results. Lifelong correct pendulum dowsing practice produces a Master Dowser!

Dowsing A Life

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

Dowsing A Life is as easy as dowsing the sex of the person in a grave* (marked or unmarked). The physics of why, how come, and where does the power and energy come from to answer dowsing questions is revealed in time. The dowser asks a dowsing question, views the answer in most cases from a form of a dowsing tool. Based upon the dowsing answer, the dowser proceeds to the next question until the query has been satisfied. All dowsing questions asked by a dowser are formed so the question can be answered by one word; “yes” or “no”.

Dowsing is a lifestyle, an art, a gift-style, and a profession. Dowsing is a study of all five senses in conjunction with a more complete use of our brain and all levels of consciousness. Dowsing is a progressive learned approach to consciously use the subconscious mind to solve problems on demand. How many times have you gone to sleep with a seemingly monumental problem and had not a clue upon which to solve it? Upon awakening, a solution came to you as plain as if someone spoke it to you… where did the answer come from? The subconscious mind worked all night and produced a solution by the next morning. Genuine dowsing allows the dowsers to use his or her mind to summon answers on demand without sleep. There is no hokest pokest alakazam magic, divining, witchery or alien responses in dowsing. Dowsing utilizes the conscious, subconscious and the super-conscious mind concentrating simultaneously to produce answers to proposed questions. If our mind has the ability to contact the Architect of the Universe, energy, system or storehouse of knowledge for the history of our world while we sleep to get an answer, some would call that ability, supernatural, dowsing confirms that this is a more original use of the mind.

Dowsing a path for everyone is a common statement rarely clarified. We are all born to have the same amount of unused brain. A study of dowsing can produce a more actively used brain encompassing sections that would normally not be used in a lifetime. We are all born with the physical attributes to be a concert pianist or an engineer. Our interests and training leads us on separate paths. Dowsing is not fully understood. So far we acknowledge that a proficient dowser is consistently better with dowsing answers than the law of averages. Before the age of x-ray and infrared photography society denied that there could be any unseen rays of light. Now we have discovered more unseen rays than are visible by the naked eye.

The professional dowser fulfills a need and seldom performs like a stage artist. A novice may show off their dowsing to impress an audience but rarely can they produce answers better than chance.

Dowsing a journey, not a destination… dowsing knowledge has increased tremendously in the last 80 years. Scientific dowsing tests (by many dowsers) with records of results has educated the present dowsing community with more data than all of dowsing history up to 1900. If dowsing students use this data as a foundation for furthering dowsing, we could possibly teach dowsing as a technique to expand the use of our brain in all areas of science.

Dowsing a healthy life can be as simple as “ask and ye shall receive”. Place white sugar in your left hand, stand with both hands straight out from the body (perpendicular) and have someone press down on your right hand while you resist them. Now wash your hands and repeat the steps above with nothing in the left hand. The force needed to move the arm down should need to be greatly increased. This action requires another person to help. Dowsing allows you to get the same response by yourself. A pendulum will allow you to find out if any food or vitamin, mineral, herb or item on the menu will be harmful to your body before ingestion. Dowsing stimulates the brain to action. As we use this new found brain activity, the brain reveals more functions that it is capable of. Left dormant, the brain performs at less than 10% of its capacity.

*Dowsing a life mentioned at the start of this article can be defined in question form, “Is this person (use the person’s name) still breathing?” The next issue of the paragraph addresses dowsing the sex of a person in the grave which is answered here.
