How to make your own dowsing pendulum

When learning how to make your own dowsing pendulum, you must understand that the tool comes in different forms. However, what matters the most is that pendulums can work perfectly in most cases. If you are going to use a stone though, it is also important to use the best stone for pendulum dowsing to get improved results each time you are trying to practice dowsing. This post will teach you how you can make your own dowsing pendulum.

Why You Need a Dowsing Pendulum

The dowsing pendulum is great because it can provide answers to yes/no questions, but also indicate answers on a dowsing chart. When used on charts, pendulums can provide very direct and accurate answers to queries about percentage, degree, and intensity.

Are There Other Options?

If you search the market, you will find that there is an array of commercial options (like this one for example). These can be bought from modern shops that deal with new age or metaphysical stuff. But these shops, though available, are not always the cheapest option.

How to make your own dowsing pendulum at home?

Making your own pendulum at home is easy, which makes it a good option for those less interested in commercial pendulums. As long as you are following the steps below, you should not be worried about anything.

What Are the Materials Needed?

  1. You will need to have a bob, which is the weight found at the lower end of your pendulum. Pendants for dowsing pendulums can be made of wood, metal, they can be a key, a jewel or a stone.
  2. You also need a chain or piece of cord that will connect your hand to the pendulum bob. 
  3. If you are using a stone, then the best stone for pendulum dowsing is either a crystal or quartz. If you are going for a small rock from a river or similar, then it should be as round and smooth as possible.
  4. If you can’t find the right stone for the pendulum bob, it is okay to use any weighted object. It is also okay to use arrow-shaped pendants or smaller fishing weights.

The pendulum chain does not have as many requirements: you can get chains from fashion accessory shops that deal in chains and necklaces. It is recommended that you use metallic ones. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure that you don’t use a chain that measures more than one foot, as it may be too sensitive to the dowsing vibrations and provide false responses to your questions.

Making the pendulum

After you have gotten all the pendulum elements, all you have to do is assemble them. At the tip of your fishing weight, there is a ring or loop. We are then going to hook one of the ends of the chain through the loop or ring located at the tip of the pendulum bob.

If you picked a stone or pendant that doesn’t have a hole or loop to put the chain through, it is advisable to use a small nail (for softer materials such as wood), or superglue in case of hard materials (such as stones). If you are using a key or jewel, then they should already have a little loop.

Most chains come with many tiny metallic rings. To get the pendulum assembled, we are going to open one of the metallic rings at one end of the chain and then insert the ring or loop back to its closed-looped position.

Final Thoughts

That is all you need to know about how to make your own dowsing pendulum at home. Make sure to use the materials suggested and follow the procedures explained above for the best results. Before using your new pendulum, make sure you test and adjust it accordingly. You might play with the length of the chain until you find what works best for you.
