Tools are required?
first point to get clear is, that there is no magic
built into the tools. They are inanimate
indicators which are moved subconsciously by the dowser
in accordance with that dowser’s ‘Code Language’,
which can be different for every one.
simplicity is the keyword, some dowsers use all
sorts of tools while some, myself included use the
simple things in life which, at the end of the day, give
you the same results..
This is a simple weight on the end of a piece of cord or
light chain. The wooden light pulls are ideal but
the pendulum varies from a key on the end of a bit of
cord to a ring or a crystal. I use a piece of
hazel twig for indoor working and a heavier crystal for
out doors, simply because you need something that will
be heavy enough not to be blown around by the wind.
The pendulum is the most versatile tool for use in
‘map dowsing’ and straight question and answer type
of dowsing. For me, it rotates in a clockwise
direction for ‘YES’ and anti-clockwise for ‘NO’.
It swings from side to side if the question is not
understood and backwards and forwards in the
easiest and simplest of all tools to use. They are
just lengths of wire bent at right angles and can be
made quite easily from old metal coat-hangers, welding
rods, thin brass rod, thick wire., for example; take a
pair of wire coat hangers and cut them so that the top
is about 9 to 12 inches long and from the angle towards
the hook for hanging, about 4 to 5 inches long, then,
having cut it, bend the angle to 90 degrees. The
short length is held in the hand as the handle.
However again in windy weather, I have a pair of rods of
6 mm brass rod (almost 1/4 of an inch in diameter).
Again there are various sizes, weights and materials.
The traditional being hazel, this was mainly because it
is a pliant wood that doesn’t dry out too quickly.
Quite commonly today, plastic is used at a length of
about 16 to 18 inches long.
This is made as above except that it is in the shape of
a ‘W’. The advantage of this is that it is
very accurate when locating and tracing small pipes etc.
However, it is difficult to get used to.
These are just springy lengths of thin branch about 36
inches long and are ideal for dowsing up a wall, for
example following the path of an old chimney – these
tend to meander up the walls of old houses. A
modern materials are taking over and the usual wand is a
36 inch length of fairly thin plastic.

for Pendulums Dowsing:
Any evenly weighted object will work as a pendulum in
fact a wedding band makes an excellent pendulum. Simply
tie a thread to the band so that it acts as a swing, a
To hold your
pendulum properly arch the wrist so that the thread is
clasped between the forefinger and the thumb so that it
can have a direct drop.
Find a quiet
place where you will not be disturbed by phones, kids,
or road noises. Take a few deep cleansing breaths and
visualize yourself connected to the earth through your
feet which are placed firmly on the ground beneath you,
this is called grounding and centering yourself. Tune
into your "higher-self," your own unique
You can start a
slight oscillation artificially if you want as a
beginner to overcome inertia, then let the natural force
take over the pendulum's motion. The body acts as a
magnet, it has a positive and negative side. Avoid
neutralization, do not cross your hands or feet from one
side to another while dowsing.
Ask to see your
"yes" signal - for most people this is a front
to back swing similar to the yes nod of your head. Then
ask to see your "no" signal which is generally
from right to left as if nodding your head no. Ask to
see your "maybe" signal, this will be
different from the other two signals, perhaps a circular
often do vary from person to person, there is no
absolute 'right' way. You customize it to your liking.
Not everyone's code is the same, ascertain yours then
stick to it; always check your code before each session
to make sure it hasn't changed, as it sometimes does!
To determine if
conditions are right for dowsing use your pendulum to
ask your "higher-self" the following
questions: "shall I dowse?" "may I
dowse?" "can I dowse?" If you receive a
no to any of these questions it is best to stop and try
again later. Your frame of mind and emotional state is
important to your ability to dowse effectively. It is
not recommended that you dowse when you are feeling ill
or upset; if you must, have someone else dowse for you
during these times.
To avoid the
possibility of auto suggestion you may want to close
your eyes when starting an experiment. Try testing
foods. The pendulum should gyrate positively over
"good for you" and negatively for the
opposite. Be careful to place food in a clean neutral
place. Many people dowse for optimum health, good foods,
