Pendulum Dowsing


Pendulum dowsing goes back as we know 8000 years. In the Tassili caves of Africa, a painting on a cave wall depicts a man holding a dowsing instrument looking for water. Pictures preceded the written word which is only 5500 years old. The painting on the cave wall is carbon dated to 8000 years old. Dowsing is a way of searching for something, be it water, or a mineral under the earth, or using a pendulum’s movement to answer questions.

So how does it work? This is the 64,000 dollar question that remains unanswered. What is true, is that pendulums, weights on strings, sticks, objects tied to a string, and rods made of metal, have been used for divination for a time longer than the written word. One becomes proficient at using a pendulum by practice, patience, perseverance and persistence. It is an art form, and can be practiced by anyone willing to learn.

The practitioner asks the pendulum to show yes, and no in movement. The pendulum will either swing clockwise, or counterclockwise. Each movement should be determined, and then ask the pendulum to stop. It is always good to give thanks to the pendulum after each answer. After developing a relationship with the “tool” or pendulum, the next step is to begin to craft the question in a way that goes beyond a yes or no answer. The quality of the question is important. An example of the difference in the question would go something like this: 1. Will I get the job? (a yes or no answer) versus

2. Is there more that I need to know about the job?

There is no rational reason for why pendulums work. During the scientific revolution, they were used to mine for minerals and water, when the invention of earth moving machines and excavators began. Pendulum dowsing is considered to be folklore and inexact in its delivery of information. The best way to determine whether a pendulum is truly effective, is to work with one yourself. Give the practice some time, and make your own determination.
