People who use a pendulum for dowsing often feel that the answer to every question an individual may ever ask is already in their subconscious mind and that a pendulum may be used to form a link with this information on a very subtle level. The information a pendulum gives us – usually in the form of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers – through the manner of its rotation, can then help in pursuits such as finding missing objects, locating ley lines (energy lines in the earth), diagnosing within the human energy field and helping us to make decisions.
It should not be used as a crutch to help us decide every which way to go in life but should be used with the intention to truly help us grow, always seeking answers that can contribute to the greater good, for example:
Healing purposes and identifying allergies.
To cleanse and dispel negativity in a room.
To help you find lost objects or pets.
To find water or ley lines
All dowsing pendulums perform the same function – if you wanted to you could use a stone attached to a piece of string.
Simply choose the shape and material that appeals to you.
