Historically, dowsing has been known for its ability to locate water, gold, oil and other minerals. How the dowsing technique was first discovered is unknown, yet those who practice it are unwavering in their affirmations that it works.

Dowsing is an ancient practice whose origins are lost in long-forgotten history. However, it is thought to date back at least 8,000 years. Wall murals, estimated to be about 8,000 years old, discovered in the Tassili Caves of North Africa depict tribesmen surrounding a man with a forked stick, possibly dowsing for water.

Throughout history, people have turned to the pendulum to guide them when their lives were at stake.

What is dowsing?

A dowsing pendulum is an object suspended by a cord, used for obtaining information which the normal senses are unable to access on a conscious level.

The pendulum should be symmetrical. This allows the swing to be more even and, more sensitive and therefore more effective. The pendulum, is an extension of the person using it, may be influenced both consciously and subconsciously making the responses inaccurate. Wishful thinking or a preconceived outcome, however slight, can be magnified making the use of the pendulum in that instance ineffective. One must take steps to prevent this. Insufficiently specific questioning can result in senseless responses.

What is a pendulum for?

It is a tool used for obtaining information from beyond normal consciousness. It helps to tap into the Higher Self and enhance intuition. There are various theories about how and why the pendulum works, and why better for some than others. There is no magic involved. It utilizes the natural process of tuning-in to the Higher Self. When we are too engrossed in everyday life and materialistic worries, our powers of intuition diminish.

The intuition we had as children diminished with age in a lot of us as a result of negative programming. We forget who we are. We lose the ability to listen to the Higher Self. There are different techniques to reconnect with the Higher Self, and using the pendulum is one of these. As you become more proficient or adept, the intuition becomes so strong that you begin to know. To increase awareness and raise the consciousness is to make that connection to the Higher Self. The pendulum can be used in healing, energy balancing, detecting imbalances in energy fields, finding missing objects and other uses.
