My husband and I decided to have a go at dowsing to harness earth energy.
I love the idea of using dowsing to allow me to become more spiritually connected with nature and tune into my intuitive side even more. One of my greatest loves is being outside with nature and always lifts my spirits.
Choosing a Dowsing Tool
Apparently dowsing can work better with company therefore my husband and I are giving it a go together.
Find out more about dowsing from my “Witch Hazel” post;
We both decided to choose necklaces with pendants for our dowsing tools. I chose a necklace which is very special to me. It has an angel pendant and was given to me by my mother who is sadly no longer with us. At least not in body although I still feel the spirits of both my parents around me.
My husband chose a necklace too with a turquoise pendant that I bought him. I bought this pendant because he has throat problems and turquoise can be used for the throat chakra.
To find out a little more about chakras take a look at my “Aromatherapy” post;
I have read that you don’t need to use a specific dowsing tool. If you have a pendant which is special to you that should be fine too. Crystals are often used so my husbands choice seems perfect.
Or maybe you prefer to buy one;
Cleansing the Dowsing Tool
To cleanse our necklaces we both decided to place them under a full moon over night. This is because its said to remove any old energies from the tool.
I chose the full Wolf Red Blood Moon to cleanse my necklace. Check out my “Drinking Chamomile under the Wolf Blood Red Moon” post for more details;
My husband chose the full Snow or Hunger Moon. Check out my “Drinking Cherry and Cinnamon tea under the Full Snow Moon” post for more details;
I have read that you can also energise your crystals by placing them in a sunny window sill. Or by holding them under a running stream. Please be careful if you choose the sunny windowsill option because some crystals are not suitable for this purpose. For example amethysts may lose some of their beautiful purple hue and clear quartz may be a fire hazard.
My husband also put his pendulum in a sunny windowsill. This was because on the night of the full Snow Moon it was a little cloudy and we wanted to ensure that his pendulum was fully energised.
Keeping Dowsing Tools Safe
I read that once your energy is on the dowsing tool no one else should touch it. This is to stop the pendulum from absorbing another person’s energy. Therefore I placed mine inside a black velvet bag and my husband uses a red one.
The tools should be cleansed regularly therefore the third and final supermoon of the year will be the perfect opportunity to do this. This event will be on the 20th March 2019 and is called the Super Worm Moon.
Testing the Dowsing Tools
We placed our chosen tools within our enclosed hands and concentrated on them for five to ten minutes with our eyes closed. Doing this infuses our pendulums with our own energy. While I did this I saw deep crimson flashes of colour.
Next we held our necklace chains between our thumb and forefinger of our dominant hands. These were the hands that we write with. We held the chain where the clasp loop is.
Then we ran our non dominant hands down the length of the chain until they reached the pendants. Finally resting the pendants in our upturned non dominant hands.
Once the pendulums were still we removed our non dominant hands and began to test our tools. Initially we did this by asking our pendulums to show us “yes”. My husband’s pendulum swung backwards and forwards as did mine.
Next we asked them to show us a “no” and my husband’s swung in a circle and mine swung left to right.
Moving around we asked our tools to show us “yes” and “no” several times and both received the same responses each time. We were amazed especially when we began asking questions. We asked questions like is it Saturday and we were amazed that we always got the correct “yes” or “no” answer.
Visiting a Stone Circle
On a recent visit to the Lake District we took our dowsing tools with us. I’ve read that earth energy is more potent on sacred sites and that these sites are often marked by standing stones.
Therefore I searched for the closest stone circle to where we were staying. This turned out to be Long Meg and her Daughters Standing Stones near Penrith Cumbria. This is one of the largest stone circles in England and therefore a perfect choice.
I stood near Long Meg and was mesmerised by the glittering red sandstone. The side that faced the sun looked like it had clear crystal running through it which sparkled in the sunlight.
Folklore says that the stones were a coven of witches and they were turned to stone by a wizard from Scotland.
It is also said that from a certain angle the Meg stone resembles a witch and that Long Meg was a witch called “Meg of Meldon”. I agree with the resemblance and to us it looked like there was actually two profiles within the stone.
I even thought that my shadow against the mother stone looked like a witch when I saw it later. Have a look and see what you think;’
I read that the stones are uncountable twice in a row. If they are counted twice in a row it is said that the wizard’s spell will be undone and the witches will be free.
Dowsing at Long Meg and her Daughters Standing Stones
When we arrived my husband and I took our pendulums out of their protective pouches. We then held them in our clasped hands, closed our eyes and meditated for 5-10 minutes.
I leaned against Long Meg while I closed my eyes. Mainly because I had done a meditation the week before which asked me to imagine walking into a field where there was a large stone. I was then asked to sit or lean against the stone to harness its power!
While my eyes were closed I saw flashes of coloured light and the most dominant was a bright green. This seemed appropriate because when I picked up my pouch that morning it had two minute white feathers attached to one side. However when I arrived at the site of the stones both of these white feathers had turned green! I know I wasn’t imagining it because my husband saw them when they were white too.
Then we held the chains of our pendulums in our dominant hands, ran our non dominant hands down the length of the chains, and rested the pendants in our palms until they stilled.
Next we walked towards different stones and asked to be showed “yes” and “no” again. Once again we received the same “yes” and “no” responses that we had at home.
Then we asked for “yes” and “no” responses to questions we already knew the answer to. Both of us received the right answer for each and every question.
Finally we asked questions pertaining to our future.
My pendulum would strongly kick itself out of a backwards and forwards motion to a left to right one when a new question altered it to “no”. On one occasion this action was so powerful that I nearly dropped my pendulum. Sometimes I also got huge “yes” answers as it swung backwards and forwards vigorously.
It remains to be seen if the answers we received come to fruition. Neither of us could deny that the pendulums appeared to work. We both feel that we did not influence their movement in any way.
Try dowsing yourselves and share your experiences. Please comment below if you would like to share.
Bless you all.
