Dowsing with a pendulum


The first birthday present my daughter bought me after we had found each other was a lapis lazuli pendulum for dowsing. I felt I had a gift for dowsing water (well, I am a Pisces!), but I'd never dowsed for answers to anything. Last year, I used it to help me with my property hunt and it said no to everything.

This morning, with half an hour left before I was due to drop off my cheque and ID at the conveyancing solicitors, I dowsed the property details, asking whether I should buy it. The
answer was no. I tried several times, always with the same result. Then I asked if I should start looking in North London again and it said yes. So, was my mind influencing my hand to move the pendulum? I don't know. As far as I was aware, my hand was completely still and the yes-no movements are so very different that I couldn't confuse them. Has anyone reading this ever dowsed, and if so, do you have any wisdom to add?

Yes, I can dowse but I still don't know if your subconscious guides the answers when dowsing questions.

I still think Liverpool might be the answer. You can't say there isn't an arts or social scene THERE! In the end though, it's up to you. Having said that, I think you need to come to a decision soon before you go bonkers.xxx

P.S. Househunting for me is easy as far as the house is concerned - though I do check surroundings, neighbours etc. I can tell when I walk into a house if it can be a home for me and mine or not. Don't know why, I just can.

I have dowsed when I was pagan and I don't have an answer for you; I've always asked the same question, myself. I still have my pendulum (a clear quartz) but don't use it for current religious reasons, but I hang onto it for sentimental value. Sorry, that was a bunch of babble to say, "No, I don't know".

You know what you need to do, just shut out the noise and listen to your gut. Ask the universe to guide you; to lead you in the right direction when it's right, and to put up 'brick walls' when it's not. Meditate :)

My gut said the house was right - and it was. It was quite magical. But it said Uxbridge was wrong and I had to get out.

Yeah but 'wrong' for what reasons? How can a house be right and a city be wrong? That's backwards...

I suppose the house can be right in that it has the right atmosphere and all the things I'm looking for, but it can be in the wrong location. If only I could pick it up and move it...
