Pendulum Dowsing Movements

Pendulum Dowsing Movements

This information is for those learning to dowse and forms part of the Dowsing Classes area of the website and gives suggestions for determining and directing pendulum dowsing movements.Dowsing Classes 3

A simple technique for determining your ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ pendulum movements is to suspend the pendulum before you.  It may help to support your elbow or fore arm on a work surface.  You will need the pendulum to have no movement.  If it is moving or swinging slightly request in your mind, or say out loud that you wish the pendulum to become centred and still.


Once the pendulum is steady you can pose one of the following:

Show me my ‘Yes’ indication.

Say ‘Yes’ to me.

Indicate my ‘Yes’ pendulum movement.

Note that none of these are questions.  Do not repeat the statement/s more than twice.  Make a record of the response.


Return the pendulum to a still centred position and repeat the above process with:

Show me my ‘No’ indication.

Say ‘No’ to me.

Indicate my ‘No’ pendulum movement.

Record your outcome.


The emphasis here is not to keep repeating statements to ‘make sure’ you have picked up the correct indicators.  If your results seem blurry either move on to the next stage as indicated by the * or have a break and come back to the process.  Over all finding your pendulum movements should only take a minute or two at the most.


You may find that you wish to ‘program’ or tune in your pendulum with specific movements that will work more efficiently for you.

For example:  By having a positive movement to a question as clockwise and a negative response as anticlockwise the pendulum can change direction more quickly.  This is achieved by providing an initial forwards and backwards swing to the drop of the pendulum.

This is probably more easily done once you are confident that you are getting definite responsive movements.
