First used by Galileo, pendulums have a long history of use in engineering, astronomical measurement, and divination. Pendulums are a valuable tool in all three disciplines. For the purpose of these lesson, we will look at pendulums for the purpose of divination.
Dowsing is another name for using a pendulum. Especially when used to find water, minerals, or anything else within the earth. When we hear this term, many still see within their minds the old image of water dowsers from the movies. No matter what you used your pendulum for; it is important differences in terminology not prevent you from learning. This is a time tested and honored skill. Using this skill can help you find objects and get answers to questions you may have.
Pendulums are a tool and nothing more. They help you sense the energies that run throughout the entire universe. Scientists cannot accurately measure psychic abilities with their current testing abilities. Testing of psychic abilities within individuals is not always repeatable. For science to accept something as real, they must be able to measure it and the event must be repeatable. Therefore, science does not accept the existence of these energies. Person who have first-hand experience with using psychic energies, understand science does not understand everything within our universe. On a regular basis, scientists are discovering new ways of measuring and recording data. This author believes scientist will soon be able to measure the energies we already know exist.
Science and psychics agree on many things. For instance, both agree energy never dies. It simply transmutes to a different form. Both agree everything in the universe is composed of energy. What we see and feel as a nice, solid table is in reality comprised of living, moving atoms of pure energy. We see the table as solid and items on our table do not fall through it because each item has its own unique energy waves.
Our senses are not fine-tuned enough to sense the individual energy waves in each item. All the items appear solid to us. Yet most people will agree, there are many energies, which can be felt. Have you ever stood near high power lines and felt the mild tingle of that energy on your skin? We know humans are capable to sensing some energies are not others. So why do we demand science prove the existence of psychic abilities before will accept they are real?
Pendulums are tools that allow us to connect to our psychic abilities and obtain knowledge from energies that we have not yet learned to physically see with our eyes. The energies are real and we can learn to manipulate them. A pendulum allows us to communicate what we are sensing (reading) from the energies, more directly with our brains. You could think of it as the energies speak one language, you speak a different language and the pendulum is the translator that allows you to understand what the energies are saying.
