Training the subconscious to move the pendulum is done exactly the same way you taught it to type, play a musical interment, or even write your name. You are training it to use a dowsing tool as a readout device, so it can com-mutate directly with you. To do this place the pendulum over the center of the +. Make your fingers swing the pendulum to the “Ready for Question”, telling the subconscious, this is the “Ready for Question”. While it is still swinging, work the pendulum over to the “Yes”, telling the subconscious this is a “Yes”. After a few swings, work it back to the “Ready for Q”. Do the same thing for the “No”. Do this several times just like you would if you were training your subconscious to type or write your name. NOTE: Keep track of only the forward indicating half swing, ignore the swing from the center of the + away from the “Ready for Q”. Pretend you cannot see this back swing. Follow the indicating half swing, wherever it goes, even if it goes to the lower half of a circle chart.
Preparing to DowseThis relates to an attitude, mind‐set, posture or orientation of the mind. When you are getting ready to dowse, here is an idea that seems to help. Suppose you called some one on the phone, and then asked for Joe’s phone number. Notice that when you are listening and writing down the number, you are in an unobstructed silence, a quite stillness, and attentiveness. This is a very good mode to be in when you are dowsing to ask questions, or request action. Intently focusing on the swinging pendulum, or other device, and be in that quite stillness while waiting for the answer. This seems to help clear the mind of a lot of interference. Here is an example of the power of the mind, and the subconscious, to send and detect information. If you put a galvanic skin response device on a persons finger, and send them a strong thought, it will almost always show up on the computer screen. Your subconscious has a fantastic detecting and reacting ability.
Positive StartHard science has shown that a negative experience during the first three minutes of exposure to a new subject area has virtually a permanent effect. First impressions are lasting impressions. To avoid a negative start, we can start out by playing a fun same with our subconscious. This is where we work together on questions that you both know the answer to. This is guaranteed to have a positive outcome and start off on the right foot. Start off by helping the subconscious, to start swinging the pendulum to “ready for question”. While it is still Swinging, ask the question: Is my name Joe? Yes or no? Help it go to the correct answer. Then say “great we got it right”. After swinging there for a short while, direct and help it work it’s way back to the “ready for question”. Now repeat the same procedure for the question: Am I a boy? Yes or no? Then for: Do I live in Chico, CA? You will probably find that, by now, the subconious is catching on and is starting to make the pendulum move with less of your help. The system has now had a fun positive start and you may now think of questions you are not so sure of.
3 aspects of dowsingFirst: It is helpful to think of dowsing in two ways. 1. As mothers intuition with a read out device. 2. As a means of directing focused intent. Second: There are two basic uses for dowsing: 1. For answering questions and getting information. 2. For requesting action. (Like guiding you to a target.) Third: There are two things the “Dowsing System” needs to have, know and do. 1. Instructions for doing physical and mental procedures and practicing them. 2. Information that you literally and truly want it to know concerning your desires and any actions you may wish it to take. May be done by programing. The expression, “Dowsing System” includes your mind, subconscious, super-conscious, higher self, and most likely many other areas.
ProgramingThis is a method of formally telling the “Dowsing System” exactly what you want it to consider, how you want it to communicate with you, and any other action you wish it to take. If you only have a vague idea of what you want, then that is all the “Dowsing System” has to work with. There are three easy steps for you to install semi‐permanent programs or make changes to established programs. These three steps seem to work very well.
SemiPermanent installation:(which means: until you choose to change it). This one‐time installation has three very simple steps. This method apparently functions something like a posthypnotic suggestion. However, the programs are worded in such a way, that you and only you, can delete, change or make additions. 1. Get Permission from your “Dowsing System” to install programs or make changes to existing established programs. You should have a “yes” for the install request. 2.Read carefully the prepared programs or changes to established programs. This is while your dowsing tool is still visually indicating the “yes” approval mode. 3. Then Check, by asking, if the programs are accepted and don’t present any conflict? If “yes” you are done. If “no” ask questions. That is all there is to installing or changing programs. Next: If you are teaching. Help the students install the “May I, Can I, Should I Program. Then suggest they later install the other very useful programs that may be found in.
TRAINING STARTNow hold your Pendulum as shown on the cover page, with the holding point between your thumb and first finger of your normal hand (the finger next to the thumb), with about 7 inches (20 cm) of string to the point of your Pendulum, which should be about 1/4 inch (0.5 cm) above a piece of blank paper. First of all, just hold it still (this is like teaching your dog to sit !).
Step 1Now look at the diagram of circles and lines next to this writing. Hold your Pendulum above the middle of the 'up and down' line and make it swing along the line - towards you and away from you; this is the"WAITING POSITION" - ready for a question. Stop, hold your Pendulum still, and without making it move ask it swing in the "waiting position".
Step 2Repeat this procedure explaining that if the question is poorly worded, is not understood, is beyond your Dowsing ability, or should not be asked, then the "NOT AVAILABLE" signal to be used is to slow down and stop along the "Waiting Position" , and then to restart swinging on the "Not Available" line.
Step 3Hold your Pendulum over the clockwise circle, and tell it to move in a clockwise direction; if it doesn't move the first time, you can make it move - but keep at this until it moves without you forcing it. Repeat for the anti-clockwise circle.
Step 4Hold your Pendulum over the "YES" circle and ask your Pendulum to make a circle in the "YES" direction. Do not make it move, just wait for it to move on its own ! This is VERY important, since you are trying to find which is the "YES" direction for you - and if you force a movement it could be the wrong way !
Step 5Then hold it over the "NO" circle and ask it to make a circle in the "NO" direction. Practice these "YES" and "NO" circles to make sure that you have them correct - they are the key to being able to Dowse. If you cannot get sure answers about the circles, then define the "YES" circle as clockwise, and the "NO" circle as anticlockwise, and repeat the exercises to ensure they work. Repeat steps 1 to 5 until you have success - then you can ask simple questions for practice (but remember to ask permission to practice first !), such as "Is today Wednesday ?" - but wait until you have read all the instructions before asking any important questions.
DIRECTIONSThe other key to using your Pendulum is asking for directions; so hold your Pendulum over the centre of the 'counting chart' (marked "Start Here") so that it is either still or making a small circle. Now tell it to move in the direction of the line marked "6". Your Pendulum should make a small "YES" circle, and then move along the line leading towards the number requested. If it makes a "NO" circle, be cautious - something may be wrong ! Repeat this with the other lines, marked "0" to "9", until it does them all correctly. You can use this skill to find lost and stolen items, read messages, seek treasure, and find your way home ! These instructions explain how to quest with your Pendulum, and give some exercises for you to practice. You will have a lot of fun finding things, increasing your Dowsing skills at the same time - and gaining confidence in your Dowsing abilities. Dowsing tools include 'L'-shaped rods (such as cut coat hangers), 'Y'-shaped rods (hazel or other branches), 'bobbers' (like fishing rods held by the tip), and Pendulums (a weight on the end of a length of string). Pendulums can do all that any of the other Dowsing tools can do ! How Dowsing works has been one of the world's oldest mysteries. Some Force works through a Dowser's mind and body to make the Dowsing tool act as an amplifier - so that you are aware of small body movements, such as in your hand or arm, caused by your ‘intuition’ responding to the Force. This System gives you a solution to your quest - an answer to your question. We use the term 'quest' because you are seeking something - like the old time quest of the Knights of King Arthur's Round Table. You seek the answer to a question, the location of an object, or a direction to take. You will NOT become an expert Dowser overnight - or even in a few weeks. To become an expert needs lots of hard work, over months, maybe years. The important part is improving - getting better at using your skills. And you will never learn if you do not keep trying ! Even as an expert, you may lose your skills if you do not keep on practicing. Have you heard of ‘Pyramid Power’ ? It can even sharpen razor blades ! When your Pendulum circles it is making a cone shape, a ‘virtual’ circular pyramid !
TUNING YOUR PENDULUMA long string is more sensitive to small muscular movements but takes a longer time to complete a movement than does a short string. When starting to Dowse you may find a long string best, changing to a shorter length as you become more skilled. Some people use very long strings on their Pendulums, and vary the length according to the item they are seeking; this long type of Pendulum was developed by T.C.Lethbridge, but is not generally used today. A light Pendulum needs less energy to respond, but is more easily blown about by the wind. You may need a heavier one if you use it outside in strong winds. Since your Pendulum is being used for your quests, you should choose a length that responds best to YOUR mind and body - instead of the length that you used to start. This is called 'tuning' your Pendulum. The most accurate way is to hold the string between your thumb and first finger of your 'other' hand, and slowly let the string out. If you find this difficult, wrap the string around a pencil first; but be sure to hold the string (on the pencil) between your thumb and first finger. Start with about 2 inches (5 cm) of string between your finger and the pendulum weight. Place your 'normal' elbow against the side of your body, with your 'normal' hand in front of you, palm upwards, pointing across your body; let your Pendulum swing gently along the line of your hand. Let the string out a little at a time, and soon your Pendulum will start to make a circle; continue to let out the string slowly, and your Pendulum will go back to swinging again; let out more string until your Pendulum starts making a circle again - note that this circle is much larger than the first circle; you have found the correct place to hold the string of your Pendulum ! If you are very sensitive, your Pendulum may make very large circles all the time when using this length; if this is so, then use the shorter length - when your Pendulum first started to make a circle. Mark this the 'holding point' by making a simple slip knot in the string.
TRAINING WITH YOUR PENDULUMYour Pendulum is a tool; by itself it has no magic abilities ! All it does is enable you to get input from the intuitive side of your brain without a lot of interference from the rational side of your brain - and amplifies that input. As with all tools, you must take care of your Pendulum so that it is clean and in good condition when needed. Repeat the first lesson with the "YES" and "NO" circles. Most people get a clockwise rotation for "YES", and anti-clockwise for "NO". In a some cases people get signals the other way round; if this is happening to you, then go over the procedure a few more times to make certain, and remember that for you the signals are 'clockwise = NO, anti-clockwise = YES'. The "YES" and "NO" directions may change depending on your body cycles (and those of any person that you are asking about). So it is good practice to check the directions each time you Dowse, and each time you ask about any other person. So ask ‘Show me the signal for "YES" ’ whenever you Dowse. The next step is to make sure that The System agrees to the use of these signals given by your Pendulum. So hold your Pendulum over a blank piece of paper, and declare:
- ‘You must only be influenced by The Force and only for good.’
ASKING QUESTIONSThere are some very important rules about the questions that you ask. While The System may be able to understand your intention, it may still insist that you ‘cover all your bases’ to get you into a good habit. And this habit is important, since at times you may address questions to an animal, a tree, your car or your computer; they will respond to the exact question that you ask - even if it is not what you intended ! First, the question must be clear, so that The System really understands the question. If you are thinking about eating more ice cream the question 'Is it OK ?' is NOT clear - The System may not understand what you mean by "it" ! So ask 'Is it OK for me to eat more ice cream now ?'. Imagine that you are in a car which has a broken fuel gauge; you ask 'Does the car need gas ?'. The answer will always be "YES", even if the tank is full. The car needs gasoline (called 'gas') to make the engine work, and it needs air (another gas) to burn with the gasoline and to fill the tyres. A better way to ask this question would be 'Is the gas tank of this car less than half full ?'. Second, the answer must be "YES" or "NO". If somebody told you a story, asking 'Is the story true ?' may not work, because some of it may be true, and some of it may not be true. So you must ask about the part of the story that you think may be untrue. Third, there are some questions which should NOT be asked - especially if the question is NOT your business ! This is why is is very important to ask The System 'May I ask about XXX ?' before asking the actual question. Fourth, you must not try to make your Pendulum move in any way. If you try to force it to move "YES" because you want it to, but think that the true answer may be "NO", then you are spoiling the training that you have done. So the next time that you ask a question, The System may not give the correct answer. Fifth, you must check that you are working within the 'rules of the game'. This means that you must define your question and the reason for asking it, and check with your pendulum for "YES" answers to ‘May I, Can I, Should I ?’. "I am seeking to find the best way to ...." to define the problem. "This is to help XXX to feel happier" to explain your reason for asking. "May I ask ?" to get permission to proceed, and confirm that the answer is available. "Can I ask ?" to inquire if you have the skill to get a correct answer. "Should I ask ?" in case your question is about a forbidden subject. And then ask your question if the replies have all been "YES". "Is my understanding that YYYY correct ?" is a good way to check that the question was what you intended, that you have understood the answer, and that the answer given was the correct answer ! If any reply is "NO", you do NOT proceed; if you are asking about someone else, and did not explain that you are asking in order to help THEM, you may get a "NO" answer; this is one time when you can explain why you are asking, and repeat your check. It may also be the wrong time to ask the question ! Some people try and combine these, by presuming that getting a "YES" after asking 'May I ?' implies that permission would only be granted if the 'Can I ?' and 'Should I ?' were also "YES". This is logical; but your intuition is NOT logical ! You MUST ask ALL the questions separately ! If you often get wrong answers after your 'May I, Can I, Should I ?' check, it is probably due to badly worded questions, or your influence in wanting a particular answer. Make sure that your questions are clear and cannot be twisted (like the gas example), and then having asked the question say to yourself 'I wonder what the answer will be .. I wonder what the answer will be .. I wonder what the answer will be .. ' It also helps if you do keep your mind on what you are doing. Asking about something you do not like (broccoli ?) and then thinking of an ice cream will be sure to give you a wrong answer ! It is good practice to always check the answers that you get by asking 'Is the answer ... YYYY ... correct ?' - it may be wrong if the question was poorly worded or should not have been asked. We have talked about your Spirit Guides looking after you. But most people have never met or spoken to a Spirit Guide, and some do not believe that they exist. Why not ask about them, using your Pendulum ? Say ‘I wish to make contact with my Spirit Guide, so that I can seek advice in living a better life’, and ask 'May I ask about my Spirit Guide ?' then 'Can I ... ?' and 'Should I ... ?'; presuming that the answers are "YES", ask 'Do I have a Spirit Guide looking after my best interests ?', and check by 'Is the answer that I do have a Spirit Guide correct ?' It would be wonderful if we could always rely on getting help from our Spirit Guides when needed. Perhaps we could ask for assistance when Dowsing ! So try - 'Will my Spirit Guides assist me to get the truth when I use my Pendulum for the Highest Purpose ?' Some people use the phrase ‘Highest and Best Good’ instead - the intent is to take the best possible action in the circumstances of the situation encountered. Remember how to ask a question; although it may seem silly to ask permission for very simple questions, do it to build a routine to use when asking more complicated questions - 'get into the habit'. 'May I ask if my eyes are brown ?' then 'Are my eyes brown ?', and afterwards check by 'Is the answer that my eyes are brown correct ?' OK, it is time to exercise your Pendulum; try these questions:
- Are my eyes brown ?
