 Magic of the Pendulum & Dowsing Rods



 Getting comfortable with your Dowsing Rods and Pendulum...........

We will begin with the Dowsing Rods and then go on to the Pendulum


There are several different styles of Dowsing Rods. The ones I use are called L-Rods. They are made out of two copper rods about 8 inches long bent at a ninety degree angle about four inches from one end to form the handles. Often four inches of 1/8” tubing is slid over the handle ends for more freedom of movement.

These rods can be made out of Bent Coat Hangers using a plastic straw for the handle.

Other rods that you may read about: the Y-rod is cut from a tree such as willow or fruit that have strong flexible limbs. The small branches of the Y are about 15” long and the main limb about 6”.

To hold the Y-Rod grip the small branches in your hands with your palms up, close your hand over the branches with your thumbs to the outside, then hold tight and rotate your palms upward putting tension on the rod. The short end will point straight out in front of you parallel to the ground or tipped slightly upward. The “yes” response is usually a strong downward pull.

The Bobber consists of a straight flexible branch or rod held by the skinny end allowing the heavier end to bob up and down.

· After selecting the rods - begun by meditating – CENTERING YOURSELF WITHOUT HOLDING THE RODS

Say a special prayer, relax and get quiet without the rods.

With the Rods --

After your quiet time pick up the rods; balance them in your hands

The sleeve should sit on your four fingers with the thumb at the back balancing the rod with a very light touch. Elbows at your side, holding the rods about 6” apart. Take time to connect with them get accustomed to how they feel in your hands. At this time the rods might start to swing randomly all around in circles. They are connecting to your energy. Focus on them and silently ask them to be still.


1. Ask the Rods to "Please Show me what “yes” is" - The rods will either cross in front of you or go out to the sides. Then say "Thank You"

2. Then ask: "Please Show me what “no” is" - Again, say "Thank You"

3. Most important, ask that only the highest information from God can come through. Wait until you get a “yes” confirmation – do not proceed until you get a “yes”.


First of all, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. To start with, Ask “Is my name______________?” Wait for the answer – go within to feel how your body connects to the answer “yes” or “no”. This is an electrical impulse that flows from your Higher Self, through the rods to form the “yes” or “no”. As you get more familiar with this feeling, very quickly you will know what the answer is before it comes out into the rods as a “yes” or “no” The more you practice the better you will get at feeling this connection.

Dowsing Rods can only be used to ask “Yes” and “No” questions. It is a good idea for someone to SILENTLY ask you a question then let the answer come through the rods. Then you know you are not influencing the answer. You may want to write down your questions and then the answer so you will have a record of your accuracy.

Your intention is important. You must also ask permission to ask about someone else. Also, remember FREE WILL is always involved. That is why a “yes” to a question today can be a “no” tomorrow. Things change from day to day.

Dowse your home, office or property for unwanted energies. Ask, “Are there any negative energies here?” If YES, then say a prayer such as:

Anything that is not of the light MUST go into the light NOW, in

Immediately check the rods - ask if the energy has cleared - if “Yes” you don’t have to do anything else. If “No” you will need to say the prayer again
Ask if there are any negative energy lines or ley lines running through your property. If you get a “yes” say the following (From Joey Korn - see Resources below):

If it be thy Will, may the Powers of Nature converge and work with
The angels, guides and any benevolent forces that are in accord with
The Divine, to increase and enhance the beneficial energies and to
Bring into balance any detrimental energies in this entire house,
Including the detrimental energies brought in to support us as humans
The detrimental energies associated with some streams or water or
Other forces of the earth, the energies emanating from electrical wires
And electrical equipment, and those associated with Hartmann and
Curry grid lines, for all the members of this household as to their
Needs, for all those who will visit, for the pets and plants, and for all
Of life, for now and into the future, for as long as is appropriate. In
Deep gratitude, Amen.

Check again to see if you get a “No”. If so, you are finished, if you get a “Yes”, say the prayer again and again until you do get a “No”.

The following is a short list of other things to dowse for:

Lost objects, missing people, Labyrinths, what vitamins & minerals to take, broken pipes, hidden wires, directions, water lines.

After the novelty wears off, then you will learn to use dowsing as a serious tool in areas that really interest you.


A pendulum can be made out of most anything that can hang from a chain or piece of ribbon. Crystals, stones, or a favorite piece of jewelry can be used. Put your hand over several pieces to feel which one “calls out” to you. Some crystals like to be used for specific things. You may have one for “yes”/ “no” answers and another to clear chakras.

You could hold your Dowsing Rods over each pendulum and ask what they would like to be used for to give you validation.


After you have chosen the one you want to use, the next step is to purify it or cleanse it. There are several ways to do this:

1. Breathe on it in a forceful mouth breath or nose snort to clear it.

2. Place it on your 3rd eye

3. Smoke cleanses the crystal – you can smudge it

4. During the Full Moon – place the crystals in a bowl of water, put it outside under the Full Moon for one day and night cycle.

5. Soak the crystal in a bowl of sea salt. If you do this with stones be careful not to put “soft” stones in the water. Citrine doesn’t need to be cleansed at all.

6. After a healing session put the pendulum in the freezer overnight.

Dowsing with a Pendulum is VERY similar to dowsing with Rods. The same energy flows through you to connect with the pendulum.

Beginning the work is the same as with the Rods.


1. Please show me what “yes” is - Thank you

2. Please show me what “no” is - Thank you

3. Ask that only the highest information from God come through. Wait until you get a “yes” confirmation - only then proceed with your request.

Place the pendulum between your thumb and index finger so that the ribbon or chain of the pendulum is about 5”-6” in length. Rest your Elbow on a steady surface and bend your wrist slightly so that the pendulum is swinging freely. Extend and separate the last three fingers so they can act as an antenna. It takes practice to hold this position. You may want to steady your elbow on a table or other surface. As it swings properly you will feel the pendulum pick up energy in response to your questions.

First practice getting clear “yes” and “no” answers. Ask simple questions – feel the impulse that flows through you as the pendulum starts to answer. Once you connect with this flow you will become more and more confident that you are receiving accurate answers.

If a pendulum does not want to answer a question OR if you ask a question that you are not supposed to get the answer to, the pendulum may just stay perfectly still or it may swing in wide circles. You will have to rephrase your question or go to another topic. This also applies to the Dowsing Rods

The Pendulum can be placed over each Chakra to determine if it is open or closed.

First Chakra – Root (Kundalini) – Survival

Second Chakra – Sacral (Navel) – Desire

Third Chakra – Solar Plexus – Will

Fourth Chakra - Heart – Love

Fifth Chakra – Throat – Communication

Sixth Chakra – Ajna Center (3rd Eye) Intuition

Seventh Chakra – Crown – Illumination

Test to see which Chakra’s are closed by placing the pendulum over the appropriate area. If the pendulum swings in a clear open circle then the chakra is open. If the circle is very small or if the pendulum doesn’t move then the chakra is closed.

When you have finished checking all 7 chakras then go back to the ones that tested closed. Place the pendulum or a crystal that has been cleansed over the closed chakra. Hold it there for several seconds concentrating on opening the chakra as you do this. Then test again the chakra should be opened. If not, you can continue to hold the crystal over the chakra and test again.

ENJOY and HAVE FUN!!! Please contact me if you have any questions. Love Betsie

Tender words we spoke
to one another
are sealed
in the secret vaults of heaven.
One day like rain,
they will fall to earth
and grow green
all over the world.
