These instructions explain how to quest with your Pendulum, and give some exercises for you to practice. You will have a lot of fun finding things, increasing your Dowsing skills at the same time - and gaining confidence in your Dowsing abilities.

Dowsing tools include 'L'-shaped rods (such as cut coat hangers), 'Y'-shaped rods (hazel or other branches), 'bobbers' (like fishing rods held by the tip), and Pendulums (a weight on the end of a length of string). Pendulums can do all that any of the other Dowsing tools can do !

How Dowsing works has been one of the world's oldest mysteries. Some Force works through a Dowser's mind and body to make the Dowsing tool act as an amplifier - so that you are aware of small body movements, such as in your hand or arm, caused by your ‘intuition’ responding to the Force. This System gives you a solution to your quest - an answer to your question.

We use the term 'quest' because you are seeking something - like the old time quest of the Knights of King Arthur's Round Table. You seek the answer to a question, the location of an object, or a direction to take.

You will NOT become an expert Dowser overnight - or even in a few weeks. To become an expert needs lots of hard work, over months, maybe years. The important part is improving - getting better at using your skills. And you will never learn if you do not keep trying ! Even as an expert, you may lose your skills if you do not keep on practicing.

Have you heard of ‘Pyramid Power’ ? It can even sharpen razor blades ! When your Pendulum circles it is making a cone shape, a ‘virtual’ circular pyramid !

If you are right-handed, then use your left hand for holding your Pendulum. Although you can use either hand to Dowse, you may find that the best hand to use as your Dowsing hand is the opposite hand to that which you normally use; this allows your ‘normal’ hand to be used for writing when you are Dowsing.

Now hold your Pendulum as shown on the cover page, with the holding point between your thumb and first finger of your normal hand (the finger next to the thumb), with about 7 inches (20 cm) of string to the point of your Pendulum, which should be about 1/4 inch (0.5 cm) above a piece of blank paper. First of all, just hold it still (this is like teaching your dog to sit !).

Step 1
Now look at the diagram of circles and lines next to this writing. Hold your Pendulum above the middle of the 'up and down' line and make it swing along the line - towards you and away from you; this is the "WAITING POSITION" - ready for a question. Stop, hold your Pendulum still, and without making it move ask it swing in the "waiting position".

Step 2
Repeat this procedure explaining that if the question is poorly worded, is not understood, is beyond your Dowsing ability, or should not be asked, then the "NOT AVAILABLE" signal to be used is to slow down and stop along the "Waiting Position" , and then to restart swinging on the "Not Available" line.

Step 3
Hold your Pendulum over the clockwise circle, and tell it to move in a clockwise direction; if it doesn't move the first time, you can make it move - but keep at this until it moves without you forcing it. Repeat for the anti-clockwise circle.

Step 4
Hold your Pendulum over the "YES" circle and ask your Pendulum to make a circle in the "YES" direction.
Do not make it move, just wait for it to move on its own ! This is VERY important, since you are trying to find which is the "YES" direction for you - and if you force a movement it could be the wrong way !

A long string is more sensitive to small muscular movements but takes a longer time to complete a movement than does a short string. When starting to Dowse you may find a long string best, changing to a shorter length as you become more skilled.

Some people use very long strings on their Pendulums, and vary the length according to the item they are seeking; this long type of Pendulum was developed by T.C.Lethbridge, but is not generally used today.

A light Pendulum needs less energy to respond, but is more easily blown about by the wind. You may need a heavier one if you use it outside in strong winds.

Since your Pendulum is being used for your quests, you should choose a length that responds best to YOUR mind and body - instead of the length that you used to start. This is called 'tuning' your Pendulum.

The most accurate way is to hold the string between your thumb and first finger of your 'other' hand, and slowly let the string out. If you find this difficult, wrap the string around a pencil first; but be sure to hold the string (on the pencil) between your thumb and first finger.

Start with about 2 inches (5 cm) of string between your finger and the pendulum weight. Place your 'normal' elbow against the side of your body, with your 'normal' hand in front of you, palm upwards, pointing across your body; let your Pendulum swing gently along the line of your hand.

Let the string out a little at a time, and soon your Pendulum will start to make a circle; continue to let out the string slowly, and your Pendulum will go back to swinging again; let out more string until your Pendulum starts making a circle again - note that this circle is much larger than the first circle; you have found the correct place to hold the string of your Pendulum !

If you are very sensitive, your Pendulum may make very large circles all the time when using this length; if this is so, then use the shorter length - when your Pendulum first started to make a circle. Mark this the 'holding point' by making a simple slip knot in the string.

Your Pendulum is a tool; by itself it has no magic abilities ! All it does is enable you to get input from the intuitive side of your brain without a lot of interference from the rational side of your brain - and amplifies that input. As with all tools, you must take care of your Pendulum so that it is clean and in good condition when needed.

Repeat the first lesson with the "YES" and "NO" circles. Most people get a clockwise rotation for "YES", and anti-clockwise for "NO". In a some cases people get signals the other way round; if this is happening to you, then go over the procedure a few more times to make certain, and remember that for you the signals are 'clockwise = NO, anti-clockwise = YES'.

The "YES" and "NO" directions may change depending on your body cycles (and those of any person that you are asking about). So it is good practice to check the directions each time you Dowse, and each time you ask about any other person. So ask ‘Show me the signal for "YES" ’ whenever you Dowse.

The next step is to make sure that The System agrees to the use of these signals given by your Pendulum. So hold your Pendulum over a blank piece of paper, and declare:
‘You must only be influenced by The Force and only for good.’
‘You must always tell the truth, got from all available sources.’
‘You must only move "YES" or "NO" if the question is a good, clear question, permitted to be asked by me, and if the true answer is known.’
‘Otherwise you must stay still or give a "Not Available" signal.’

This is VERY important, so ask The System if it understands ! If your Pendulum signals "NO" or stays still, then repeat this part of the training until your Pendulum signals "YES".

Some people consider that a ‘witness’ aids their questing. This is a sample of what you seek - held in your hand, attached to your Pendulum, or inserted into your Pendulum (if it is hollow and can be unscrewed). This may work by concentrating your thoughts on the task at hand.

There are some very important rules about the questions that you ask. While The System may be able to understand your intention, it may still insist that you ‘cover all your bases’ to get you into a good habit. And this habit is important, since at times you may address questions to an animal, a tree, your car or your computer; they will respond to the exact question that you ask - even if it is not what you intended !

First, the question must be clear, so that The System really understands the question. If you are thinking about eating more ice cream the question 'Is it OK ?' is NOT clear - The System may not understand what you mean by "it" ! So ask 'Is it OK for me to eat more ice cream now ?'.

Imagine that you are in a car which has a broken fuel gauge; you ask 'Does the car need gas ?'. The answer will always be "YES", even if the tank is full. The car needs gasoline (called 'gas') to make the engine work, and it needs air (another gas) to burn with the gasoline and to fill the tyres. A better way to ask this question would be 'Is the gas tank of this car less than half full ?'.

Second, the answer must be "YES" or "NO". If somebody told you a story, asking 'Is the story true ?' may not work, because some of it may be true, and some of it may not be true. So you must ask about the part of the story that you think may be untrue.

Third, there are some questions which should NOT be asked - especially if the question is NOT your business ! This is why is is very important to ask The System 'May I ask about XXX ?' before asking the actual question.

Fourth, you must not try to make your Pendulum move in any way. If you try to force it to move "YES" because you want it to, but think that the true answer may be "NO", then you are spoiling the training that you have done. So the next time that you ask a question, The System may not give the correct answer.

Fifth, you must check that you are working within the 'rules of the game'. This means that you must define your question and the reason for asking it, and check with your pendulum for "YES" answers to ‘May I, Can I, Should I ?’.
"I am seeking to find the best way to ...." to define the problem.
"This is to help XXX to feel happier" to explain your reason for asking.
"May I ask ?" to get permission to proceed, and confirm that the answer is available.
"Can I ask ?" to inquire if you have the skill to get a correct answer.
