How to use Pendulum DowsingOnce you have mastered the use of your pendulum you will have a tool that links your conscious mind to your subconscious mind allowing you make decisions which may assist and guide you through the pathways of life. As with all new tools you must spend some time to learn how to use it properly, follow these steps...
- Draw a 5 inch line on a sheet of paper.
- Suspend your pendulum over the line on concentrate on your pendulum, willing it to move along the line. Persevere if it doesn’t work first time, stay focused and relaxed.
- Once you have completed the step, Draw circle on a piece of paper about 10 cm’s in diameter. Again, using your mind will the pendulum to move round the circle first clock wise then, will it to move anti-clock wise.
- You are now ready to “Program” your pendulum. Whilst willing your pendulum to rotate clockwise tell your subconscious mind that this movement means “yes”, or positive. Repeat with an Anti-clock wise movement and tell your subconscious mind that this means “No” or Negative.
The Signals that you useIf you are right-handed, then use your left hand for holding your Pendulum. Although you can use either hand to Dowse, you may find that the best hand to use as your Dowsing hand is the opposite hand to that which you normally use; this allows your ‘normal’ hand to be used for writing when you are Dowsing.

Tools.You will need a sheet of paper, pencil, and some kind of Pendulum. An example would be a weight on a 4 or 5 inch string or a necklace, held at about 5 inches of chain length, etc. This may be a good time to find the above supplies.
Use of the following guidelines will ensure you optimize results.
- You must be in a relaxed state, with an open mind to use the pendulum. Keep you mind clear of any emotions any could give rise. You should always be dispassionate, in heart and mind towards the questions being asked; if they stir you then they will stir the pendulum.
- All questions should be asked to allow for Clear Yes & No types answers only.
- You should not use your pendulum in areas where there is an excessive electrical field such as; near TV’s, Microwaves, or high voltage cables.
- Questions based on the personal wealth are perhaps too subjective, and may give unclear responses. Wealth Goes beyond Money, of course.
IMPROVING YOUR SKILLSWhen you start to use your message chart you probably have a long length of string to your Pendulum - which slows it but gives accuracy. As you improve, you will find that a shorter length - and perhaps a smaller weight - increases your speed. You may well find that you start to recognize patterns of conversation, and may assume that a pattern is always used; you may also recognize words due to the context in which they are used. But always check ! Sometimes you will find that the next letter or word does not come - and this is intentional, as a signal to you that you have made a mistake interpreting the message. Each letter is given to you, but your hand may ‘stick’ if you have made an error. Be very careful with words such as no, not, and now - they can reverse the meaning of the whole message ! So always say ‘Is my understanding that ... blah blah blah ... correct ?’ to check that you have not only the correct words but understand their meaning. As you gain more skill, you may find that you receive the messages without the message chart. But the message chart helps you with two things - it concentrates your mind on the message, and enables you to check difficult words - especially in spelling names.
ITS A TWO WAY STREET !Not only can you get messages in reply to yours, but messages can be sent to you ! So how do you know that there is a message for you ? You can ask, and a signal can also be sent. This is something that you must agree with The System. You may decide that only very special messages will cause a signal, and all others must wait for you to check for them. Often a signal that there is a message will be a funny wave in the side of your head, but this may not suit you, so you can arrange for the signal to be a feeling in your finger or a tingle in your toe. It is up to you to decide, but a tingle in your toe may well be better than having an accident while driving because your head suddenly ached ! If you get a message signal while driving, while at a business meeting, or while you are otherwise preoccupied, just tell The System that you have received the signal and will deal with it as soon as possible. Remember you do not have to say this aloud, you can just send it as a thought. So suppose you want to ask about a friend who does not know how to send or receive messages - can you communicate ? Yes, but not with the friend directly; you ask your Spirit Guide to connect you to the mind (or Soul) of your friend, stating the reason for the connection. If the Spirit Guide of your friend approves, then you may be connected - in this way you can check if your friend is in trouble, what sort of help is needed, and how you can assist. If the conscious mind of your friend can also send and receive messages, can you exchange messages with your friend ? Yes ! It is just like email on the internet. You send a message. When your friend next checks for messages yours will be received. Your friend can send you an answer, which you receive when next you check for your messages. The usual format for a message is: The name of the sender (which is supplied for you), ’I Love You’, and then the message. But be careful to check that the message does come from your friend - and not an evil spirit. If you are suspicious, ask your Spirit Guide to check that it is actually your friend. Remember, however, that these messages are being sent with the help of your Spirit Guide. Do not send frivolous messages or time wasters. If you do, then your Spirit Guide may withdraw your privileges, and you may miss some really important messages ! If you feel that ‘I Love You’ is not appropriate to the message that you are sending, then the message should not be sent. It is as simple as that !
MAKING YOUR HOME SAFEThis is so very simple that it is amazing that so few people know how to do it - or even that it needs to be done ! All you have to do to clear a house or office is to ask your Spirit Guide to get it cleared; he can get help from other specialist guides if needed. Walter Woods, the President of the American Society of Dowsers, has identified this use of Dowsing as one which can give the most immediate benefit to new Dowsers. Just say ‘Spirit Guide, I Love You; I will that all entities and thought forms that are detrimental to the inhabitants and occupants of this house (or office) now be removed and sent into the Light with Love’.< The terms ‘I will ... something happens ... and when’ are a clue to the power of thought. The weakest is a stray thought. A deliberate thought is stronger, and a decision such as ‘let .. something happen’ is very strong. The strongest of all is ‘I will that ...’, in the sense of using your willpower to give a command. If your Spirit Guide approves, he will make it happen. Then check by asking your Spirit Guide if this has been done, and if so, thank your Spirit Guide for the help given. Occasionally it will not be done, and in such a case there will be a very good reason why not; you can ask your Spirit Guide for this reason (and what must be done to allow clearing of the house) using your message chart. And another secret - you do not even have to be in the house to do this ! Just give your Spirit Guide the address, or the name of the occupants that you want to help, and your Spirit Guide will do the rest. Why is this not done anyway, without you asking ? Because guides are instructed not to interfere; people are expected to do their ‘own thing’, to learn their lessons with the minimum help. But Spirit Guides love to be asked to help, since that gives them the ‘excuse’ to interfere, to make things better ! The next task is to deal with any earth energies. Many people sleep, or sit for long periods such as at work, in places that have energy fields that are not good for them. The result is often cancer or a tumor. The negative earth energies are mainly caused by the ‘Hartman’ and ‘Curry’ energies which run in grids encircling the globe in many directions; water running below the house and electrical disturbances from transformers (and the circuits in a house) can cause similar problems. Trouble can be expected especially where these energies cross. Some can be neutralized or moved by very experienced Dowsers, but it is not wise to try unless you are very skilled. The easiest way is to ask your Spirit Guide to locate these dangerous places, and then avoid them by moving beds and favourite chairs so that they are out of the way of these earth energies. To do this, go to each chair and bed and ask ‘Is this a safe place for a human to sit ? .. to sleep ?’ and if the answer is "NO" then go to an alternative position and ask the same question until you get a "YES". Be sure that the whole of the new bed position is safe ! If you still have problems, get the help of an experienced Dowser. Tell the people that the bed or chair is in a bad position and could cause cancer or other diseases, and advise them to move it to the safe location that you have found with the help of your Spirit Guide. Now ask your Spirit Guide to request that the house be enclosed in the Energy of Love and Light to protect the house and its occupants for ever. Check that this happens, and give your thanks and Love for the the help given by the guides. It is an excellent idea to ask the others to join you in this simple prayer of thanks ! Helping other people to make their home safe is really worth while - especially if you teach them to do it themselves.
CAUSES OF HEALTH PROBLEMSThere are four prime causes of health problems - physical reasons, such as having fallen down; emotions, like anger, fear, and jealousy; mental upsets, especially worrying about situations; and spiritual causes, for example doing something that you believe is wrong. Always use the term ‘health problems’ since it includes all sickness, disease, and other problems. It is important to realize that a health problem may have more than one cause - an emotional problem may reduce your defence capabilities so that physical exposure enables the disease to take root. Carolyn Maas has written a number of books on this aspect of health, seen as a ‘medical intuitive’. Her first book is perhaps the best one, dealing with a number of cases. She explains, for example, that people with anger often have heart problems or arthritis. But heart problems can also occur due to old age. Her later books concentrate on another factor - the refusal of people to get well, for reasons such as enjoying the sympathy of others, or the misused power that being an invalid gives to control the lives of others ! To help yourself (or others with the approval of your Spirit Guide) first ask ‘How many serious health problems do I have ?’ and then get these spelt out using your message chart. For each one, ask if the cause is physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual - remembering that there could be more than one cause. Now go through each type of cause of each health problem, asking that the detailed cause be explained - for example ‘Worry about who cares for me if my wife died’ or ‘Anger to my father who abused me’. This routine takes time - but is worthwhile to do properly. You may be able to help reduce pain or put a disease into remission with the help of your Spirit Guide, but it may well return unless the cause is eradicated; this is the really hard part - especially dealing with anger. Note that this discussion has nothing to do with medical support; your doctor may well be giving you the best treatment to cure a disease - here we are trying to eliminate the causes of disease that doctors cannot tackle.
OVERCOMING ANGERPerhaps the hardest anger to overcome is that which you harbour against a parent who abused you when you were a helpless infant in their care. Indeed, nothing can justify that sort of behaviour. The resulting anger, however, can do far more damage to you than did the abuse - so you must learn to deal with it. From your point of view the case is quite clear - and you can never forgive and forget. So you must look at it from the other person’s point of view - by no means an easy task ! Perhaps the parent was abused by his father. If the abuse was physical, then he may have been brought up believing that such behaviour was normal. In fact, you might be having just that same problem, and be restraining yourself because you do believe it to be wrong. Perhaps your father did not have the same willpower to restrain himself, or lacked the support coming from other members of your family that you enjoy. It may even be that this was a lesson that both of you had decided to work out together to overcome the ‘Karma’ - perhaps in a previous life you had abused him ! There are many people who believe in this sort of karma - and they may be right. What you are doing here is trying to find some excuse, however far fetched and ridiculous, that explains your father’s actions and allows you to forgive him. That is all. You are in this for yourself, not him ! It does not matter what you think to anyone else - only to yourself ! If you can do this, and genuinely say ‘Father, I forgive you’, then the memory of that abuse will cease to pester you, it will stop making you ill. It is past; it is finished; you can concentrate on what is happening in your life today - not events of long ago ! Another major problem of forgiveness is forgiving oneself. Perhaps you have been angry with a person for some series of events that happened years ago; you want to rid yourself of the troubles caused by anger, and this is one of the cases that comes to mind. You examine the events from your view, and it seems as if you were right. So look at them from the viewpoint of the other person; perhaps some thing that was said was completely misunderstood, and this error started all the negative behaviour. You may have been at fault; and even if you are not sure where to put the blame, it is better to accept it than to have the problem continue ! So apologize to the other person. You do not even have to do it to their face - although it may help them if you do, and be more meaningful to you. But they may have moved away or died. So say the apology - and really mean it. Now you can start the forgiveness. To forgive oneself is often completely overlooked ! But it can be the key to clearing anger - and other emotions - from your system, so you can again become healthy.
YOU ARE BEING CONTROLLED !When you were young you assimilated the life around you; the behaviour patterns you observed helped you to fit into your family and society. But the family may not have been the best, society has changed, and the patterns may have been misformed anyway. Negative situations occur in life which you may think you have overcome and forgiven, but perhaps have not. When a similar situation comes up, your anger will reappear suddenly without you even knowing why. We also hang onto behaviors we are taught as children. Perhaps your mother gave you a treat when she wanted you to do something for her that you didn't like to do. Or she gave you candy to be quiet around the house, or to calm you down when you were hurt or upset. When you are older, you will give yourself treats for the same reason, and because you handle the money and the goodies, you may overdo the treats and become very overweight, and you won't realize that it was your childhood that trained you to do these things. You can understand the strength of behaviour patterns developed over a long time, for example in a family where the husband is usually drunk, beats a nagging wife, and abuses his children. They children grow up thinking that a real adult acts in the same way ! They may also think that it is OK to act, but not to talk about their way of life. It becomes hidden. You, when helping somebody who has this problem, may not be aware of it - and they will avoid telling you ! So what can you do ? Your Spirit Guides can help with these situations. So ask them to help with these types of problems! Say ‘Spirit Guide, if there is any problem in my family life, please help to fix it, so that all in their family are helped’. A lot of fat people would like to be slim. You can help them ! But you must start by making sure that the reason for getting fat is really understood. Females tend to get fat due to nature; they are ‘programmed’ to store energy as body fat so that they (and their babies) can survive a famine. This is a safeguard to ensure that the human race survives a natural disaster. This a ‘spiritual’ reason. A different source of ‘getting fat’ is mental - feeling insignificant. This is feeling that you do not have your rightful place in society. So you, as a person, want to be more substantial, to ‘stand out’ more. And this is translated by your own body mechanisms to mean that you want to be fatter ! So use Dowsing and your message chart to discover what is causing the fatness, explain this reason to the person, and work out with them how to remove this cause. Then you can start to get the weight reduced. Every day, preferably before each mealtime, the person should say ‘I want no more fat; let slimness be implemented’. Soon the person will be influenced to not take the extra snack, and to use the energy stored as fat. This is an expensive process, since new clothes will be needed !
MEDICATION AND DOSAGESIf you are going to buy herbal remedies or vitamin supplements, you can ask The System for assistance; 'Do I need a remedy ?', 'Please point to the shelf with the remedy that I need', 'Is the remedy on this shelf ?', and 'Is this the remedy that I need ?' - or ask similar questions using your message chart. And you can ask for the dosage to be taken, and how often to take it. After this, ask if there is another remedy that you should also take, and if so, then repeat the procedure. And you can help your medication to be more effective ! Apply or take your medication, hold your Pendulum over the place that needs healing (or as close as you can get) and imagine a golden light coming to you through your Pendulum. Say 'This golden light will make my medication work better; it will heal me quickly' - and it helps if you imagine the medication and healing light actually making all well ! You will probably see your Pendulum make big "YES" signals, and then stop when you have enough. It may even give you a "Big Kiss" at the end !
POINTING - MORE DIRECTIONSNow repeat the lesson on using your Pendulum to point directions - remember to ask permission to practice. How is this skill useful ? Well, if you cannot remember where you left your pen, glasses, or bicycle you just ask that your Pendulum point the direction ! You can even ask the direction to your dog (or cat); try and find your dog this way - if he gets lost on another day using your Pendulum may help to find him. 'Hide and seek' will take on a new meaning with help through your Pendulum - for finding other people, or have someone hide something for you to find. If you ask your Pendulum to be pointed to west, you could be surprised when it pointed to a friend or neighbour - this could happen if the name of the person was Pat West ! When seeking north, ask for magnetic north, or ‘the direction of north’. If you are looking for a ring (lost in the grass) you can walk in the direction shown by your Pendulum, and ask that it to start making a "YES" circle when you are over the ring. As you approach the ring, your Pendulum will start to change from a straight 'to & fro' motion to an ellipse, and then to a circle, and then back to an ellipse when you have gone past the ring. Get some pennies and ask your friend to hide then in the garden (or the beach, or even under a carpet); then use your Pendulum to find them. Ask that your Pendulum 'point to the nearest penny' until you find them all. When your Pendulum indicates that you have found a penny, ask if there is more than one - in case your friend put a few together. You can get an exact count by asking about increasing numbers. Another very important skill to learn is tracking. Ask your friend to walk around the neighbourhood (or on paths in the woods if you live in the country) and remember the route taken. Then ask that your Pendulum show the path taken. Or you could track animals in this same way - it is the same sense that trackers use ! A little hint - your friend may try to trick you by going through the same place twice ! So always ask The System 'Which direction did my friend take next ?' so that you trace the exact route. Then check with your friend to see how well you did. Or you could play at hunting in the same way - get some bits of paper, write numbers on them, and get your friend to leave them (in order) on his route. Then hunt for these using your Pendulum. And it gets even better ! If you have a map, you can search for a lost dog, stolen bicycle, or a friend's location. Just hold your Pendulum at one corner of the map, and ask that your Pendulum show you the direction of your search object, and mark the direction on the map. Then go to two more places on the map, and get 2 more directions. If you draw lines on the map, they will cross to make a triangle. If the triangle is large the answer may not be accurate. This may be because the target (such as a car) may be moving, or perhaps your feelings for the search item may be too weak for you to get identification. If you are searching for another person, you may not get a good answer if the person does not want to be found - so you may find it difficult to locate a thief. Map pointing can be used to locate your next home. If you are using a map of the whole district, then the area that the triangle covers may be large. You can reduce the search area by choosing points on the map that are close to the triangle and getting new directions from those points.
DOWSING FOR WATEROther dowsing tools like the 'L' and 'Y' rods will indicate metal pipes, electric cables, and running water - without having to be told what to seek. Your Pendulum can be used to find these too. As an exercise, go into your garden or the street, where you think there may be a water pipe (or electric cable) and ask that your Pendulum 'Make a "YES" when I am above a water pipe' - and see if you can trace where it runs. If you just ask The System 'Is water here ?' you will probably get "YES", since most ground has some dampness in it ! You have to ask your questions very carefully. If you are just looking for a drink, then ask 'Where can I find surface water which is safe to drink ?' If you are looking for a place to sink a well, then you could ask that your Pendulum 'Show me where I can find an all-year round continuous 50 gallons per minute supply of good drinking water within 100 feet of the surface'; but if you start walking to the next town you may have to revise your question. You could say 'Show me the best place to drill a well on my land to get good drinking water', and then when you find the spot ask 'Should the well be more than 30 feet deep ?', '50 feet ?' until you find the depth to drill. And you can then ask 'Will I get a continuous all-year-round supply of more than 20 gallons per minute ?', '50 gpm ?', until you get the correct flow. But taking that flow may prevent the water going to another well used by someone else; this is bad practice - so you must always ask ‘How much water may I extract without harming the supply of any other person ?' You may also need help from an experienced Dowser who is able to divert bad water away from a well, and get more good water to flow in.
WATER - THE ESSENCE OF LIFE !Perhaps the most useful Dowsing that you can do with water is to improve the quality of the water that you drink. A lesson from a very experienced Dowsing Instructor, Bill Askin, is to get a glass of water and sip it to get the taste. Then hold your Pendulum over the glass, and ask ‘that everything in the water that is harmful to me in any way be removed’ - and when your Pendulum stops circling taste the water again - and it may have a different taste ! But wait - the experiment is not finished ! Now ask ‘that all the sustenance and nutrients that you need for your Highest Purpose be added to the water’, wait until your Pendulum stops making a ‘virtual pyramid’ over the glass, and taste again ! You can verify that the 'life essence' of the water has improved by checking with your message chart. It seems that life and light are closely related - and that the life essence (or radiance) can be measured in Angstrom units, a measurement of light. Since you are intersted in the change that occured, you do not have to understand what an 'Angstrom unit' means; just ask "What is the radiance of this water ?" at the times that you taste it. In 'The Secret Life of Plants' the radiance of a normally healthy person is quoted as being about 6,500 Angstroms; food which has a higher radiance is healthy for you, but if it has a value below yours then you may reduce your own radiance (your life force) by eating it. The book suggests that if you eat meat, smoke, or drink alcohol then your radiance will be lower, and that the lower your radiance the more likely that diseases will hurt you. One way to improve the radiance of food is to pray that it be blessed before you eat it. Test this by asking for th radiance value before and after the food is blessed - and be ready for some surprises !
EXPLORINGWhen you are exploring, remember to ask The System if you will be in danger before starting out ! Next you can ask that your Pendulum point to what you are seeking; it will swing to and fro, so check which direction to take. When seeking a small object, ask it to make a "YES" circle when found. Do not be disappointed if your direction finding does not work well the first few times - if you practice with your Pendulum now, to improve your skills and build confidence in using your Pendulum, then you will be ready for when you really do have a need to search. Your Pendulum could save your life ! Suppose that are camping in a place that you do not know well, and that you are exploring some woods. Suddenly you realize that you are lost ! Being a well trained Dowser, you are carrying the most important part of your equipment - your Pendulum ! So ask that it point the way back to the camp site. Remember that it swings backwards AND forwards - one direction will take you to the camp, the other away from the camp. So if it swings left/right (or forwards/backwards) ask if left (or forward) is the direction to take. Now it may be that the direction shown is the most direct, but not the safest (a ravine - or even a wild animal - could be in the way); so it would be better to ask that your Pendulum show you the 'quickest safe way' to the camp ! But what happens if you FORGOT to take your Pendulum ? Well, you can make an emergency Pendulum to get you out of trouble. Take a piece of string, and tie it around a small stone, and use that as your Pendulum. If you do not have a piece of string, use a length of vine or tear a length of bark from a small branch of a tree. Try not to use your shoe lace, because if your shoe is loose then walking will be more difficult. You use your Pendulum to find some water, but then wonder if it safe to drink. So ask via your Pendulum 'Is it safe for me to drink this water ?'. If you ever get really lost for a long time, you may get very hungry. You can pick some leaves or pieces of grass, and ask via your Pendulum if they are safe for you to eat. This is for emergencies only, so do not go eating leaves unless you have a real need. For example nettles may sting you, but are good to eat; dandelions are very good, but you may not like their taste. You may be able to eat most snakes and bugs - so long as they do not eat you first !
MORE ABOUT YOUR PENDULUMYou must be most careful to be honest and truthful using your Pendulum. Pretend that you are a child who does not like broccoli; if you ask The System 'Should I eat my broccoli ?' and it signals "YES", and you then tell your mother 'My Pendulum says I should NOT eat my broccoli' then you are spoiling the training that you have done with your Pendulum. You must ALWAYS be honest and truthful - especially about using your Pendulum. Even if your Pendulum indicated 'Eat your broccoli' you may choose not to eat it - that is your choice ! But DO NOT blame the Pendulum if you ignore the advice given and run into trouble. Remember that you do not have to speak when using your Pendulum, only to THINK the question. If someone asks 'What did you ask your Pendulum ?' you can always tell them 'sorry, but that is private’.
MAKING DECISIONSSuppose that you want to go out, but are not sure whether you should go to the Red Wood Park, the baseball field, the skating rink, or the swimming pool. You can draw some lines on a piece of paper (like the 'counting chart') write the names in the spaces, and ask your Pendulum to indicate the best place. To be really accurate, you should add 'stay home' and 'somewhere else'. You could put the names of friends instead of the names of places, or use colours to ask which one is best for a purpose. Or if you want to know which campsite you would like most this summer, write their names and ask ! Instead of using your Pendulum to point to choices drawn in a semi-circle, you can write a list and ask The System to show which is correct - or the best choice. Write down all the things from which you want to choose, hold a pointer (a pencil will do) in your ‘normal’ hand and point to each item in the list, asking The System 'Is this the best choice ?'. This can be used for many purposes, such as which subjects should you study, what books to read, or where to go to eat or for a holiday. And you can ask what colour clothes you should wear; each colour has its frequency of vibration, as do emotions, feelings, and the chakras which many leading thinkers believe help to guide our personal life. But ask with a purpose in mind. The colour to wear to become successful may not be the same as the colour chosen if you want to relax ! Another major decision would be choosing a place to live. Map Dowsing can locate the neighbourhood, but there are a lot of crucial questions which should also be addressed. 'Will this house be conducive to a happy family ?' If you just ask 'Will this house suit me ?' you may get "YES" while the answer for your partner or dependants would be "NO". You can also ask 'Are any major repairs needed soon ?' 'Are there problems with the foundations ?' '.. the roof ?' '.. the insulation ?' '.. the heating system ?', .. 'the fire warning or prevention system ?', 'Is a zoning change likely to happen in the next 10 years ?', 'What is the lowest price that we can negotiate to buy this house ?'. In Europe it is now usual to ask if there are any earth energies which would adversely affect the occupants - zones where high incidents of cancer occur have been identified by skilled Dowsers. And sometimes very skilled Dowsers can move these energies to make a place safe - or identify areas dangerous to sleep.
HELPING PEOPLE IN NEEDHave you heard a little voice or felt a feeling deep inside you - that tries to help you ? Perhaps you wish it would help you more often ! That little voice or feeling comes from the intuitive part of your mind. Perhaps it is your Spirit Guide trying to help you, or your friends ! You have a sudden thought that you should do something, or go somewhere, or see (or telephone) somebody. And you have been surprised when doing just that solved another problem. If you get an urge to go to the river, it may be because somebody needs your help. But you do not just rush off to the river ! As a trained Dowser you ask The System if you should go, and if it is safe for you to go. If so, then you leave a message saying where you have gone in case you get into difficulties, or so people can find you if another emergency needs your help. One very important thing - do not boast about your skills ! Just use them quietly and carefully. As an example, if a friend has lost something, you may not be able to find it for them, since it is not 'your' thing. But you can try - and when you find it, you can say that your Dowsing system did good.
PERSONAL HELPYou can check using your Pendulum if a particular food is good for you to eat. Perhaps you feel ill at odd times, and wonder if you have an allergy. Ask The System 'Do I have any allergies ?', and if the answer is "YES" then you can write down all the things which you think may affect you, hold a pointer (a pencil will do) in your normal hand and point to each item in the list in turn, asking 'Am I allergic to this ?'. Then avoid that item and see if you feel better. You can always ask how you will get on with a person. 'Can I trust Pat ?', 'Is Pat telling me the truth ?', 'Will Pat be a good friend to me ?' and 'Has Pat taken my pencil ?' are all excellent questions to ask The System.
OTHER PEOPLEBut it is wrong to ask these same questions when they concern Pat and some other person - you should only ask if YOU are involved. And asking about some one else, such as 'Has Pat any allergies ?' is wrong unless Pat has given permission for the question to be asked. This is like poking your nose into another person's diary ! Asking 'Is my girl/boy friend interested in some other person ?' will always tell you "YES" - but the sort of interest may not be what you meant ! The 'some other person' may be you, the interest may be for business reasons, or because they are relatives - or they may be a fan of a film star. We are all interested in many other people.
CHAKRAS AND SPINAL SYSTEMThere are schools of thought which believe that all living bodies have auras which control a chakra system connected to pathways along the spine which mould our actions and our bodies; this is the basis of acupuncture. Each chakra (or disc) is associated with specific colours and sounds. The chakras may be considered to be a sort of transceiver, transmitting and receiving not radio signals, but a higher level system of communication which is yet to be discovered scientifically. These chakras may not be fully open in some people. Perhaps you could have a happier life, and find that things 'go your way', if your chakras are operating correctly ! First of all, ask via your Pendulum 'Does my body have a chakra system ?' and if "YES" then ask 'Is my chakra system important to me ?', 'Are all my chakras operating correctly ?', and 'Should I learn more about my chakra system ?'. There are many books on chakras and their associated physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual characteristics - all concerned with your health. If your chakra system is important to you, it may be worthwhile to get some books from the library that help you to understand chakras, learning their location and associated colours and sounds, so that you can improve their efficiency. If you decide that you want to check your chakras, you can ask for each one 'On a scale from 1 to 9, how important to me is this chakra at the present time ?' (and use the Counting Chart to find out), '.. 1 to 9 .. what is the efficiency of this chakra ?', 'What colour is associated with this chakra ?', 'Do I have any problems related to this chakra ?' then take the first thought that comes that could indicate a problem and then ask 'Is XXX the problem that I have to correct ?' - or find out using your message chart. Then you must think of ways that could overcome or correct the problems, and check to see if you have found the right basic intentions, such as forgiving, apologizing, leaving a bad relationship, or changing your job. When we talked about earth energies, we said that they ran in grids around the earth, and mentioned a couple of energy grids that could be harmful. But there are many other grids - and some real surprises. Mike Doney, one of the best Dowsers in the world, has found that there are grids for things like sadness, joy, sorrow, happiness, hate, and love. Note that sadness is spiritual , while unhappiness is emotional - they are not the same ! It seems as if our auric systems tune our chakras into these grids - so that we choose (via our system) whether we want to laugh or cry !
MORE COUNTINGTypical questions are ‘On a scale from 1 to 9, how fresh are these tomatoes ?’, ‘.. how suitable is this suit for me ?’, ‘.. how allergic am I to eating peanuts ?’. For depths of water, minerals, etc., you can ask first in terms of ‘How many thousands of feet ?’, with an answer between 2 and 3 .. ‘How many hundreds of feet over two thousand ?’, and if you get a swing between 5 and 6 .. ‘How many tens of feet over 2,500 feet ?’, and narrow the search down. You can get practice asking ‘How many minutes will I have to wait for the next bus to come ?’ - remember that it may not be the bus that you need, so you can ask ‘.. for the next #10 bus..’; ‘How many miles to the next gas station on this road ?’; and you can check these answers ! Another way of counting, useful especially if you do not have your Counting Chart with you, is to make a guess and then split differences: ‘Is the depth greater than 1,000 feet ?’ ("YES") ‘Is the depth greater than 2,000 feet ?' ("NO") ‘.. greater than 1,500 feet ?’ and keep narrowing this down by halves. The depth may be exactly 2,000 feet down - so remember to check ! You can also ask that your Pendulum make a number of circles to give count; but you must arrange the code beforehand - are the first and last (small ?) circles part of the count ? Try sample counts to see what works for you.
PETS AND PLANTSYou can use your Pendulum to see if your pet is sick, and ask questions to find out what is wrong and how to cure your pet. You can do this to plants as well, asking 'Does it need more water ?', or ask which fertilizer and how much. Most of us are very surprised when we learn that we can tell what animals and plants need. But it is even more amazing when we realize that they can tell what we are thinking ! Some years ago there was a lie detector specialist called Cleve Backster who became interested in plants. He decided to test how long it took for water in a plant pot to reach the top leaf in a plant which was dry, so he attached a lie detector to the top leaf. Backster was amazed to see that the lie detector indicated happiness as soon as it was attached, even though no water had been added. He then wondered if the plant would give an unhappy signal if he set the leaf on fire - and was astounded that the plant gave that unhappy signal as soon as he had the thought ! This experiment has been well publicized both in books and on television. Try cutting a leaf in two, getting a friend to hide half, and then Dowsing for it - holding the other half in your hand. You will find that the two halves seek each other ! Experiment with your message chart to exchange messages with your pets. You can have a wonderful time ‘talking’ to your dog! And you might be able to get your plants to grow better - and grow prize vegetables in your garden !
DOWSING APPLICATIONSIn France, Germany, Russia, and other countries in Europe, Dowsing is accepted by governments - and some government departments have Dowsing sections. North America is far behind - mainly due to a lot of vested interests. But it is used ‘on the quiet’ by many large organizations. Healers use a Pendulum to find causes for illness in their patients; engineers locate errors on drawings; computer experts find errors in computer code; gold and oil deposits are found; buried treasure and ancient artifacts are located; water, electric, and telephone utilities use Dowsing to find their lines. Dowsing has been used in many places to increase food crops - by helping plants grow, keeping bugs away, and even putting a protective field around them to prevent diseases. There are many other uses of Dowsing that are not covered here. Dowsing goes under many names; for centuries the Chinese have used it not only to find water and minerals, but to decide how to place and make a harmonious home (called Feng Shui). In Europe it is used to choose sites which will be free of cancer causing rays and to find what causes high incidences of road accidents - and then eliminate these causes ! Learning to Dowse is like learning to read. Once you have started, you can apply it to many fields. The list is endless. And you can do a lot of good by letting others see you use your Dowsing skills in public. People complain that Dowsing is not accepted by businessmen, politicians, medical practitioners, and the general public. Yet there are many who ‘use their Pendulum’ in private - this is especially true of ladies. By letting others see that you Dowse you are encouraging them to be Dowsers - and to Dowse in public themselves. That way Dowsing will become accepted ! It is up to you ! Just think how much better the world would be if politicians ‘did the right thing’, if alternative medicine and spiritual healing reduced illness, if the justice system were fair to all, and if children were not abused. This will happen. It will happen sooner if you help - by Dowsing in public to help get Dowsing accepted as a true ‘gift from God’, for us all to get help from our Spirit Guide. You may encounter resistance and negativity from some church authorities, with their set rituals and closed minds. By contacting your Spirit Guide directly you are by-passing them - and they are afraid to lose their authority and control over you. Some priests are there for power and prestige. Treasure clergymen who know they are there to help people reach the Holy Spirit ! When you have gained some experience as a Dowser, and have gained confidence in your ability to Dowse, then ask The System about any of the statements in this booklet that you find surprising - check that all this is true !
SOME SIMPLE GUIDELINES
- Be sure that the wording of your question is clear and not ambiguous.
- Think only of your question - get other thoughts out of the way.
- Remember to define what you are questing, why you are asking, May I ?, Can I ?, Should I ? - and to check ‘Is my understanding ..... correct ?’.
- Ask permission to practice - and do not misuse the answers.
- If you think that you may be influencing questions that concern yourself, get somebody else to Dowse for you.
- Respect the privacy of others - ask if you can help them before interfering.
- Tiredness, stress, noise, and interruptions may lead to unreliable answers.
- Dowsing to help others gets the best result - and gives you more satisfaction.
- Never boast - be humble, and give credit to the Spirit Guides who helped you.
- In all your life, only have good thoughts - always wish well for others. What you wish for others comes home - to you !
- If ‘I Love You’ seems inappropriate in a message that you are sending, then do not send the message !
