My Pendulum Lies to Me!
How many times have you dowsed a certain outcome, and waited in anticipation for that desired outcome to occur, only to discover that it didn’t happen, and isn’t going to? Many people say they don’t use a pendulum, because it lies anyway.
There are many reasons why it seems that your pendulum may have lied to you. However, it is rarely that the pendulum lied.
For instance, preconceived thoughts and ideas do affect the outcome of the pendulum swing. When dowsing, you must remain in a state of "I wonder....", "I wonder what the outcome will be…”, etc.
You need to be cautious that you do not allow yourself to sit down with your pendulum and have a preconceived answer when dowsing. If you do have a belief of, “This is how I think it will be, and I just want the pendulum to confirm,” often the pendulum confirms what you have already set in stone in your mind. This leads to the belief that the pendulum lied, when what we were “told” was going to happen, didn’t!
Often, we fail to allow our subconscious minds to provide accurate answers. Our conscious minds and Egos are in control, because the decision has already been made in our minds and, of course, there is a ready scapegoat if it turns out that our conscious mind /decision was wrong. Since the pendulum confirmed, we blame the pendulum; “The Pendulum Lied.”
Probably the most important factor when dowsing is the Question. Be certain that you KNOW what Question you actually asked. Has your dowsing actually given you the correct answer to the question you asked? I always recommend that you write out your question when dealing with an important concern, so you can look back and see how the pendulum was actually right in the answer; it was the question that was flawed. I often write out the question, then dowse to see if the question is phrased properly. Also, outline all your specific criteria for the outcome. For instance, you might be dowsing a possible new job; write out what you want from the job. Job satisfaction, of course, decent hours (9 to 5), lots of overtime, limited overtime, and of course consider your family ~ will your family be able to survive comfortably on the salary? Will they be happy? You do not want a job that may negatively affect your marriage, etc. These are just some of the criteria you might consider for a perfect job. If you are dowsing a food or a supplement, you can also set up a program for the criteria that is important to you that will show you the perfect food. It may not be enough that the food is good for you, you may not even like it! I often dowse a restaurant menu, so I will order the item that I will enjoy most and will not have any adverse effects on my body.
When I was a beginning dowser, the biggest hurdle for me to becoming successful was to learn to trust the answers I received. Once I learned to trust, I started getting correct answers.
This brings me back to the time when I was first learning, and I was at a shop and wanted to purchase some new jeans. I tried on a few pairs and then dowsed to see which one(s) to purchase. Well, my dowsing indicated I should purchase one particular pair and not this other pair that I thought were really nice! So, I left the store with only the one pair indicated by my dowsing, and I loved them... but..... I wanted that other pair of jeans. They looked good, so why would I listen to a pendulum when making this purchase, etc etc. A week later, I went back and spent $76 on this other pair of jeans. To this day I have only worn them maybe twice (I've kept them as a lesson). They are the most uncomfortable pair of jeans I have ever worn! They fit nice, and they look good, but they are horrible! It was an expensive lesson. But after that, I decided that if I were actually going to bother to dowse a subject, then I would listen to the answer, even if it seemed wrong to me at the time. I found that once I showed TRUST in my dowsing, my answers seemed to be MORE correct.
I still I have trouble dowsing for lost objects, too! I think it’s because I can't seem to get my head out of the way when attempting to find things. I rarely lose anything and have always been really good at knowing where things are! Except, of course, for those times when I don't, yet I still think I DO!!! I’m sure you know what I mean. We all have those moments. My husband, on the other hand, is good at dowsing for things. I had lost some supplements he had purchased. I put the extra bottles away and I couldn't find them. I looked everywhere! I didn't even bother dowsing, because I had only so many places I would have put them. I was certain they would have been in one of those places! So finally, it was coming down to the crunch and he needed those bottles of supplements and I finally told him that I simply could not find them. I told him I had looked everywhere. So he dowsed. A few minutes later he said they were in the fridge on the door. I looked at him like he had lost it; after all, I'd already looked there! But, I humoured him and went to look again. To my surprise, they were there on the shelf, but lower than the shelf where I usually put the supplements, hidden behind the condiments!
When you are dowsing a subject that has a strong emotional effect on you, it is possible that you will get incorrect answers. Again, your emotions are in control. There are a few ways listed in the Dowsing 101 section to bypass this possible interference.
So, let go of your Ego, let go of your preconceived notions, let go of your desires, and allow your subconscious mind to give you the answers you need to know -- even if it is not what you want to hear.
Learn to Trust Your Dowsing, and honour the answers you receive! Don’t over rule the outcome with your desires. And remember, Your Pendulum Does Not Lie!
