Basic Definition of Dowsing:
“Dowsing is the ancient practice of using simple tools to interpret the answers to the questions you ask.”
I have always been curious about dowsing, and stumbled upon receiving my first pendulum many, many months ago. Pendulums can be made, bought, acquired, it doesn’t matter, but once named as your pendulum, it should not be used for anything else. It should be kept in a safe place, shown some respect and used with positive energy! It may not work for everyone at first, but with practice, it can become a trusted tool.
I had tried dowsing over the years yet never had much luck…. that is, until I tried it again last year after my mom passed away. It is no secret to me or anyone around me that the lessons of my mom’s death were [are] huge and brought about many changes in my life, including the ability to now get accurate dowsing readings. I was a little freaked out by this at first, I mean c’mon, who’s moving this pendulum that I’m holding in my hands? Is it me or is it really my higher source, my subconscious mind or is it the earth’s energy?
I have come to accept that it is all of these things and for centuries, dowsers have been locating water sources, finding lost objects, resolving health issues, communicating with spirits, communicating with the subconscious mind, exploring past lives, and achieving personal goals, just to name a few. Once I hunkered down and began to understand what dowsing is, its historical past and how it can work in my life, I began to embrace it and I now dowse on a regular basis.
At this point, I don’t remember why I tried dowsing again last year, but I do remember being really surprised by how accurate the responses were proving to be; and it continues to improve over time. This article, “Pendulum Magic for Beginners” by Richard Webster has some great suggestions for dowsing with a pendulum and what type of questions to ask.
Is it hocus-pocus? Maybe. I like hocus-pocus; it fascinates me and I have found that the more I trust my pendulum and honor it’s guidance, the more confident I have become.
I am a big believer in that we are all energy and we’re vibrating all over the place, some higher or lower than others. My energetic field really came into focus in the past year; I stopped hiding behind the defenses that really weren’t working for me anyways. I had to get honest with myself and make some huge life changes — which hasn’t been easy, but has been freakin’ awesome.
So my energetic field has become more fine tuned, more aligned with the real Meagan. I began to trust my instincts and my intuition. I felt guided by someone or something and trusted it. Dowsing made sense because it is essentially my subconscious mind having a conversation with my conscious mind and this makes perfect sense to me, especially as I learn more about energetic vibrations.
#eBalls. That’s what I like to call ’em. We all have them, we all are juggling them, we all toss them around, just like Twitter pop pop pop. I am now learning how to juggle and toss on an entirely new level and I LOVE IT!
One of the more challenging parts is that I have lost my way [somewhat] in the career department. The more honest I become with myself, the less I can tolerate working for anyone nor anything I don’t believe in. I find ways to not work for people I have no faith in. So where does that leave me?
It leaves me with more work to do.
In the meantime, I ask my pendulum all types of questions, and have found it to be a very useful tool, but not the only tool in my bag of tricks. One thing the pendulum and dowsing are never ever ever used for? Negative things. Nope. not here, not ever.
