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?
