My family’s heritage is dowsing (also spelled dousing). Or as some people are more familiar with – water dowsing or water witching. There are different types of dowsing and different types of dowsing tools. And for many of us, dowsing is just simply something handy we use on a daily basis.
Many people are familiar with the use of a forked stick or two metal rods for the finding of water. In fact, until quite recent in US history, you could find pamphlets on dowsing for water in homesteading materials provided by the U.S. government. Dowsing for oil has also been a practice. However, though familiar with these methods and a variety of dowsing tools that are available for measuring energy, I prefer the use of a pendulum over other dowsing tools and its use for spiritual purposes.
The use of a pendulum is a great tool for measuring energy and information and is not too unlike the use of muscle testing. That all things are at their essence forms of energy and that our bodies and souls can distinguish these different energies and tap into the flow of energies in and around us, both physically and spiritually.
My specialty is the practical use of a pendulum for a variety of spiritual and otherwise simply useful purposes. Though I do consults for people, this is something people can easily learn and use for themselves and I encourage it. I also carry an inventory of a variety of different pendulums for a variety of personality types, approaches, spiritual work and purposes.
