How to use a Dowsing Pendulum

by Laurra Warnke

Learn how to use a dowsing pendulum to receive answers from your higher self. Learn to program your pendulum and the right questions to ask.

If you are not familiar with divination or pendulum dowsing, I have written brief tutorials on these pages: Pendulum Dowsing and how to choose a dowsing pendulum.

Learning to use a dowsing pendulum is fairly easy, but there are a few factors to be aware of including clearing and charging a pendulum and also knowing how to ask proper questions to get clear answers that come from your higher self.

Clearing the Pendulum

Have you recently purchased a dowsing pendulum? You MUST clear the energies from the piece before you begin to use it. By not doing so, you are still harboring the energies of another within the piece. Always begin with a fresh slate and charge the piece to your own energies before you begin to ask questions with your pendulum. By not doing so, your pendulum will not give you correct, authentic answers from your higher self. The answers may contradict themselves and may not be your truth.

I have written about before about cleansing and clearing crystals and gemstones. The exact same techniques apply for a dowsing pendulum. Bookmark this page and come back after you have cleared your divination tool.

Charging and Programming your Pendulum

By charging and programming your pendulum, you are attuning it to your own energies. This is a very important step and will determine the quality of the answers you receive.

The technique I used is described in the book Unlock Your Intuition by Andrea Hess. You really need to do the exercise from the book to properly charge your pendulum.

After the pendulum is attuned to your energies, you will ask it to show you a yes response, a no response, and an undecided response.

Please keep your pendulum in a safe place and make sure no one else touches it, as their energies can get transferred to the piece.

Proper Questions to Ask

Do not begin your questions with the word "should", as it comes from a place of confusion or uncertainty. Instead begin your questions with something like this: Is my current job aligned with my Soul's highest path and purpose? You can then dowse for a specific percent.

The book below, written by Andrea Hess goes into great detail about the proper types of questions to ask and how to ask them. Please take a look, it is a worthwhile purchase and will help you considerably in learning proper dowsing techniques.

This is one of the first metaphysical books I purchased about two years ago. It contains a wealth of information in regards to pendulum dowsing and great instruction on how to use a dowsing pendulum to its fullest potential. I highly recommend getting this book.
