All Of A Sudden…
So there you are, dangling your pendulum (on a short chain!) and wheeeee! All of a sudden there's a new pendulum movement. Instead of going back and forth (or whatever your usual movement is), it takes off in a different direction.
It happens a lot to pretty much every dowser at one time or another. And most dowsers don't do anything about it.
To paraphrase Winston Churchill, ‘Many dowsers trip over the problem, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.'
Yet the answer to the problem is, literally, in your hands.
What to do with new pendulum movements
If your pendulum does something strange, then you have the option to ask a question as to why.
If you have only ever had yes and no responses, then it might be that you've just discovered a ‘stupid question' response. Or it might be a ‘not now' or a ‘wrong time' or even a ‘no answer' response.
Whenever this happens to you, it is presenting to you the perfect opportunity to extend your dowsing, to make it better, richer, more nuanced, more skillful.
All you have to do is ask the right question!
You've got nothing better to do, have you? After all, you're sitting there with the pendulum in your hand. Don't waste time. Ask right away. It might only be a response that happens once a month or once in a lifetime. But ask! Ask simple yes/no questions and you will learn more about your dowsing doing that than pretty much anything else.
So, if it's happened to you, start by asking, ‘Is that movement to give me more information than just a simple yes or no?' And then see where you go from there.
Seize the moment and grow as a dowser because of it.
