Dowsing Magic: A Step-by-Step Guide

Sometimes simple magic works the best. One of the forms of magic I often enjoy is dowsing with a pendulum. Using a pendulum is one of the most basic yet satisfying magic rituals, plus dowsing magic is really easy to learn.

If you need answers, and who doesn't these days, try a quickie dowsing sessions with a pendulum. Whether you want to know if your brother-in-law is going to get drunk again this weekend or if you're going to meet your soul-mate, pendulums can give you fast and solid answers for yes/no questions you might have about any aspect of your life.

What is a Pendulum?
A pendulum is any lightweight object suspended from a string or chain. It is a magical tool that becomes a natural extension of you, and can access any and all information that exists in the Universe. You just have to know which questions to ask.

For instance, a pendulum can reveal your body's own native wisdom. It can indicate whether certain supplements or flower essences will improve your health. It can also reveal whether a health problem stems from a particular organ or an emotional source. Dowsing with a pendulum is a simple form of magic that has a remarkable number of applications.

How to Make a Pendulum
Anyone can make a pendulum. You just need a lightweight object plus a chain or some string. You can use paper clips, small rocks, earrings, hairpins, pendants, small medallions, crystals and talismans. If you want to use a crystal, use an amethyst, and store any kind of crystal you use in a pewter box, which protects it from negative energy. Don't use Aurora crystals, which have been treated with petroleum.

If you choose to hang your pendulum on a chain, use a silver chain. You can also hang your pendulum on any kind of natural fiber such as cotton or silk, horse or human hair or leather.

Training Your Pendulum for Dowsing Magic
Once you've made your pendulum your next step is to train it for dowsing magic, so that it answers your questions quickly and accurately. Here's how:

1. First four-element cleanse your pendulum with smoke. The smoke from burning pine resin and sage works well.

2. Next, key your pendulum so that it responds to your energies. To key it, hold your pendulum in your dominant hand (the hand you write or point with). Flow energy into the pendulum for a minute or two, or until it grows warm and tingly.

3. Begin training your pendulum by establishing its yes and no directions. Decide if you want your pendulum to indicate "yes" with a vertical or horizontal swing. The "no" indicator will be the opposite of the "yes" indicator (if "yes" is a vertical swing, then "no" is a horizontal swing).

It's often easier to dowse while sitting, so get in a comfortable position and hold your pendulum suspended from your dominant hand. Make sure the pendulum is on a long enough chain or string to swing freely. Rest your elbow on a table or your knee to stabilize your hand.

Swing your pendulum in a gentle clockwise circle and tell it, "Show me yes." Wait for the pendulum to settle into the proper swing (whatever direction you chose). If it doesn't, ask again.

Once your pendulum consistently swings in the proper direction for "yes," use the same process to ask it to show you the proper swing for "no."

4. Finally, start training your pendulum to give you actual answers by practicing asking questions about short futures. Ask yes/no questions that can be verified in a 15 to 30 minute time frame. For instance, at the end of the work day you might ask your pendulum, "Will my roommate be home in the next 20 minutes?" Verify the correctness of your pendulum's answer, and then ask another question.

It actually doesn't matter whether your pendulum gives you the correct answer or not. It's more important to give your pendulum a lot of practice with dowsing magic. The more your work with your pendulum, the more accurate it will become. Don't get obsessed with the "rightness" of the answers during this training period.

Asking the Right Questions
At this stage, your pendulum can answer any yes/no question. How you phrase your questions will determine the accuracy of the answers. The general principle for asking questions in dowsing magic, as in spell work, is, "Be precise!"

For instance, if you ask your pendulum, "Will it rain today?" and your pendulum says, "Yes," don't be surprised if you don't see a drop of rain that day. Was your pendulum wrong? No. It probably rained somewhere in the world that day. Since you didn't ask for a precise location, your pendulum could not give you a precise answer.

As with everything else, practice makes perfect when it comes to dowsing magic. To remind yourself to practice, take your pendulum with you in your pocket or purse (wrapped in a piece of silk or in a small pouch) and use it any time you have a few minutes to yourself. You'll be surprised at how many opportunities you will have to use it!

Want to Manifest More Easily in Your Life? Practice This Real Magic Tip Daily ...

This real magic tip, found in our Psychic Development ebook, will help you learn how to manifest that which you desire by making a formal request of the Universe; one that can be verified. Be sure to keep it simple and fun!

Each day, make a plan, after you have done a morning sit or meditation, to attract an event or item into your life that day. First choose a topic. It could be a particular person or a theme or item. For example, you could pick "cherries" as the theme for the day or something more complicated and specific like the Beatles or the Berlin Wall. You might choose a specific song that isn't heard very often.

Throughout the day, be on the watch to see how the Universe delivers your request. Really be alert because the Universe may be more subtle than you expect. For example, if you picked the theme "cherries" to show up in your life you might be offered the actual fruit by a co-worker, or you may hear the word cherries used in a conversation by passerbys. It could be that you'll see the word in a book or magazine or smell a cherry scented candle as you walk through a store. Be open to the creativity that the Universe employs.

If the item or theme you have chosen does not show up, don't worry. Just try again the next day. When you ask this time however ask that the Universe show you the item or theme in an obvious way that you can easily recognize. Establishing a relationship with the Universe is often about refining the communication channels until you are making a reliable connection. Keep refining your request until you are successful with this psychic game. It can be amazing, powerful and it can be fun. To learn more about establishing a relationship with the Universe and higher powers and beings check out our Psychic Development ebook.

The Magic of Making the Right Decision

Whether you are looking at the Mayan Calendar or the economic forecast, you can tell we are living in a topsy-turvy world, a world in which it can seem hard to make the right decisions in life. Eenie, meenie, miney, moe ...

If you are having difficulty figuring out how to make the "right" decisions for your life, here's a quote that can offer you some comfort. This quote comes from Abraham-Hicks:

"Make a decision and then make it right. There just are no wrong decisions ... But in the moment you start complimenting yourself on the decision you've made, in that moment, you come back into vibrational alignment with who-you-really-are."

There Are No Wrong Decisions
What Abraham refers to in the quote above is that there are no wrong decisions. The "rightness" of a decision is based solely on how you feel about the decision. Feel bad about a decision you have made, and prepare for the decision to drag your life into the toilet. Feel good about a decision, and watch the good things in your life soar.

There are no wrong decisions, so any decision you make will be right so long as you can manage to feel good about that decision. Should you use a pendulum, a question circle, or a tarot card reading to help you make a decision? Sure, if performing those magic rituals will help you feel more secure about your decision. Do as many magic rituals as you need prior to making a decision if that helps you make the decision "right."

Ways to Affirm a Decision with Magic
Once you have made a decision, feeling good about that decision may be a matter of reaffirming the decision daily with magic rituals. For instance, we recently made the decision to take on another rescue horse, this one a giant baby Hughie who eats a lot. The decision wasn't hard to make: he had some health issues we could definitely help him with.

But like everyone, we sometimes wake up in the middle of the night with doubts, fears, and insecurities. If I wake up feeling negative about my decision, I go right outside (no matter what time it is) and do the Day Greeting from the Navajo Beauty Way. Normally used to start one's day, this greeting can be used to "restart" a day at any time of the day or night.

Just last night, around 2 AM, I got up and used this magic ritual. As I greeted each direction, I reaffirmed that the decision to adopt this rescue horse was correct. I asked the Old Ones of each direction to support my decision with positive manifestations. This morning, as I look out at the new rescue horse, I feel only good vibes with no negative undertones. As I go out to do my second set of Day Greetings for the day, this time in the morning, I feel uplifted and happy. I have made a decision and I keep making it right by using magic rituals on a daily basis.

What About You?
Do you have a decision to make that is weighing on you? If so, don't let such a decision hang over your head like the Sword of Damocles. Use whatever magic rituals you need to help you make the decision, and then make the decision. On a daily basis after that, make the decision right. Use whatever means necessary to do so.

- Hire an angel
- Do the Navajo Beauty Way
- Get help from your animal totem

You are not helpless, and there are ranks of unemployed angels, animal totems, and other beings just waiting for you to ask for help. So go ahead, ask! You'll be surprised at how quickly your decision can be made right ... literally in an instant!

Being in Silence to Receive

We often teach students how to dowse, do divination, and gain information through non-physical means--in other words, receive information from the Universe. If you have practiced any of these arts, or simply ever asked for information from the Universe, you know that you need to be in a receiving mode before you can hear what the Universe has to say.

The Universe always delivers what we ask for, but we sometimes forget to listen. In fact, in the midst of our busy noisy lives, it's amazing that we're able to hear anything at all! Between cell phones, pagers, television, and radio, we're buried in a cacophony of physical sounds, which tends to shut down our ability to hear our inner voices of guidance.

How You Can Hear Universal Messages?
So how can you increase and develop your ability to hear the Universe and its messages? Practice inner and outer silence. Outer silence is perhaps the easier of the two to achieve. Just pick a segment of the day, say 2 hours, and choose to be silent during that period. It's best if you can choose an active part of the day, such as mid-morning or mid-afternoon. You might have to do this exercise on a weekend or during a holiday, when you won't be forced to interact with anyone at work or school. Maintain outer silence by not speaking. It's also best if you avoid taking in too much noise from other sources, such as radio or television. You can sit quietly, meditate, read something uplifting, or even do chores. The goal here is to actively listen or watch for messages from the Universe.

Outer versus Inner Silence
If you can't maintain outer silence during your day, you can work on inner silence instead. Inner silence means quieting the internal mind chatter that is with us almost all the time. As you're walking around, for instance, notice how many thoughts cross your mind, triggered by the things you see and hear. Then, start quieting that stream of thought by putting your attention on your breathing or some physical sensation, such as the sensation of your feet striking the ground. Whenever a thought comes up, just return your attention to the physical sensation. If you work consistently with this exercise, you'll soon be able quiet your internal chatter quickly and listen to your inner voice of guidance.

As you work on both inner and outer silence, you'll notice that one begins to affect the other. As you get more and more silent outside, you'll become more silent inside, and vice versa. Enjoy!

Finding East to Get Back on Track, Magically

If you ever feel like you've strayed from your path and you're not quite sure which way to go, just find east! While most compasses want to find north, for shamans and magicians east is the more powerful cardinal direction for finding knowledge and guidance.

East is the direction of knowledge, understanding and enlightenment; it's the direction of the Sun and the place where all life begins. When you're feeling lost, you can ask the Winds of the East for guidance, pray to the east, or just meditate facing east.

One of our favorite exercises is to practice finding east psychically:
  1. Find some open space outside and stand quietly for a few moments.
  2. Close your eyes and slowly spin around a few times.
  3. Raise your arm parallel with the ground and point the index finger of your dominant hand (the hand with which you normally point).
  4. Keeping your arm raised, slowly spin around until you feel yourself facing east. Some people feel "locked in" when they face east and others just feel a desire to stop turning.
  5. Open your eyes to verify whether you are facing east.

Don't worry about whether you actually find east on your first few tries. Your sense of east will develop with practice. It's often the practice of finding east that yields more benefit than actually pointing to it.

We've also found that when we're "locked on" to our path in life, finding east is easier, and when we're lost it's harder. This simple exercise can be an internal compass that tells you how closely you've stuck to your path. Enjoy!
