How do you move the pendulum? (VIDEO)

Ever wonder if the pendulum is controlling its movements, or if you are controlling the pendulum?  In this edition of Dowsing Today I discuss the influence that you have over the pendulum’s movement.

    I am struggling with understanding your use if the pendulum. I was taught to use the pendulum by an elderly wise woman. She teaches to clear your pendulum before each use, and to understand a person’s energy controls the pendulum so what is yes/no is not the same for each person – we are to ask which direction (swinging right or left parallel to the body) is yes and no. For me the most important question I ask when I use my pendulum is “am I clear” so I know I am getting the best possible answer. If I am not clear, which is the case most of the time, I clear myself and the surrounding space. Having said that, the ways you describe to use it are what I know – choosing supplements, certain medications, and many more things where I need some clarification. Thanks <3

    The most important thing to remember in dowsing is that YOU are the instrument NOT the pendulum! The intuitive information is coming through you and the pendulum is merely a meter to read. YOU tell the pendulum what you want to see for a yes and a no – it is you moving it therefore it must respond as you move it. If it is not doing it then spend time to re-program your muscle in your arm to move it to a no position.

    Thank you for expanding my understanding of how to use my pendulum. For years I have received clear responses of the flat line readings but didn’t know that the direction of the circling is also part of the response.
