Let's Dive Right In!

Although they are very simple, there are a number of common questions about dowsing tools which keep cropping up.

Although we can't guarantee that we answer all of them in this video, we are fairly certain that we've at least covered some of the most common ones.

Common questions about dowsing tools

These really break down into two major areas.

The first area is about how to look after your dowsing tool. This includes things like cleaning it, keeping it looking good and so on. Some people like to see the tool they use for dowsing always in a clean and tidy state. Others, like me, on the other hand :-), don't really care what it looks like, as long as it works.

The cleaning idea also include a ‘biggie' about whether other energies can mess up your tool. So, in this instance, a very common question is about whether or not to allow other people to use your tool, or whether, if they do, it needs cleaning or not afterwards. And, if it does, then what's the best way to clean it?

Now, as you'll see in the above video, the answer to these questions really does depend a whole lot on your thinking about the situation. If you really and truly believe that you must keep your tool just to yourself, then it's true for you that you should keep your tool for yourself. This is because what you believe is what is true for you.

The second main area of questions about dowsing tools is about which is the right tool to use. Again, that's not a ‘one-answer-fits-all' deal. It's more about which tool feels right to you when you use it as well as whether or not it does the job.

So, personal preference plays an important part in these things.

    Every separate time I use my pendulum (when I ask the put it down then ask another day) the yes and no swings often get switched, what causes this and is there a way I can fix it?

    • Maggie Percy

      When you say the yes/no swings get switched, what do you mean? If you mean that you get ‘yes’ when you should get ‘no’, it is possible your polarity is reversed. Put ‘polarity reversal’ in the Search box and read those articles to fix that. The tool is just an indicator of your body’s response, and if your body’s polarity is reversed, your ‘yes’ becomes ‘no’ and vice versa. I always start each dowsing session with a polarity check, by dowsing “Was I born in Washington, DC?”, which is where I was born. If I get a ‘no’, that means my polarity is reversed. Let me know if that answers your question.

        Thank you! My polarity was indeed reversed. If I ever get reversed again I’ll remember how to fix it! This has been a problem for a while! Very helpful

          You’re welcome. We find it helpful to ask a polarity question before we dowse. I use my birthplace. Also, you can check during a long dowsing session to make sure it has not shifted.
