Pendulum becoming saturated

Postby Lynnie » Fri Mar 25, 2016 9:37 am

Hi All

I’ve dowsed for about 24 years. I’ve occasionally brought new pendulums along the way as I’ve found ones that are really attractive to me however, about seven years ago my favourite pendulum at the time, a lapis lazuli, just stopped working, it would not move even the slightest, no matter what I asked or how I phrased my questions. I picked up another pendulum and it was business as usual.

In the last few days, my carnelian pendulum is no longer working. Just won’t even move. I’ve picked up another pendulum and again, business as usual. I’ve dowsed for the reason my carnelian one is no longer functioning and the closest I’ve got is that the pendulum has become “saturated”. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Very interesting, Lynne. I find that certain natural stones, used as pendulum weights, can become saturated as can crystals used in healing and have to be either washed or left in sunlight for a day to become “re-energised. Quartz is particularly vulnerable to becoming saturated. I can find no other reason why a pendulum should stop working. (I use a 1/2 inch hexagonal steel nut as a weight)

Thanks for the reply, Geoff. I tried cleansing etc but it had no effect. It makes me feel a little sad when I have to 'retire' a pendulum. But thanks, at least I know it's not just me.

No it just aint you. I’m told that a completely saturated pendulum weight loses its ability to attract detrimental energy and therefore needs regular cleaning to prevent it from becoming saturated. Sorry you have had to lose yours.

Wondering why the pendulum stopped when the weight became saturated I did a bit more digging to find that natural stone pendulum weights accumulated detrimental energy fairly quickly (compared with steel nuts) and that detrimental energy had sufficient power to stop the nerve in the wrist from operating the pendulum. That also explains why it is possible to use a new pendulum immediately because the detrimental energy source has been removed from the are of the wrist.

Thanks Geoff, that's really interesting. I'm assuming that detrimental energy is the same thing as negative energy? I am particularly upset about the carnelian as when I went searching for a new one I remember thinking I'd love a big carnelian crystal with a garnet top and when I walked into a shop in Glastonbury there it was! Just waiting for me. I also try pendulums out in the shop as sometimes even though I like a pendulum it won't move or gives me a negative. But the carnelian was an instant and very large yes. And it seems, funny how times passes, that I haven't had it very long, so I'll just have to resign myself to looking at it occasionally. Thanks for the information though, really interesting.

Hi Lynnie,

Don't discard it yet, have you tried running it under a flow of water?
A tap (it can be just a trickle) or stream will do or burying it in the earth for 24 hours?

Hope this helps.

Geoff) Um…my definition of “detrimental energy” refers to an energy that harms something that is alive. If your definition of negative energy” refers to the same thing, then Yes.

L) I am particularly upset about the carnelian as when I went searching for a new one I remember thinking I'd love a big carnelian crystal with a garnet top and when I walked into a shop in Glastonbury there it was! Just waiting for me.

G) The shop next to St John’s Church ?
Well, there is this suggestion from DarkChestofWonders (above)
That may be worth following up. Have you dowsed whether the carnelian is completely saturated, Lynne ? It nay not be

Hello Geoff and Alan

I'm not sure where St John’s Church is. The shop is at the end of a little alleyway, I think it’s called StoneAge. I always seem to end up getting my pendulums from there.

I’ve had another dowsing session this morning and asked about running the carnelian under water or burying it etc or anything I can do to reverse the saturation but the answer from working pendulum is no, there’s nothing I can do. Looking back, I think I got this one about 5 or 6 years ago, and the previous pendulum this happened to, which was a lapis, also lasted about 6 years. At least I now know that any pendulum I buy is going to last 5-6 years.

Yes, I know the shop and the alley you refer to. You may decide to enforce a 6 monthly cleaning cycle for any future stone pendulum you buy to keep it “active”.

Lynnie - If you don't manage to get the carnelian cleansed/working again (hope you do!), it might be an interesting experiment to give/loan it to another dowser and see if it works for them.

Something tells me if you place/bury the pendulum at the base of a big tree your pendulum will be cleaned overnight and restored, I know hugging a tree can remove bad vibes/thoughts/problems.Its a case of grounding those bad vibes and cleaning all past history of the pendulum, and getting a loved old friend back,well worth a try.

I'm not doing well with my pendulums lately! I've recently lost / mislaid my rose quartz pendulum, the one I carry with me all the time. The last time I used it was on Friday outside of my home. I keep it in a turquoise pouch. I've searched where I can think it could be (home, work, car) but nothing. I think maybe it's dropped out of my handbag. Of all the things I can dowse, I cannot dowse to find lost items. Would anyone like to have a dowse and try and locate it for me?

Don't forget that one can 'pick up' all kinds of offensive/negative energies and attachments.

You may be blaming the pendulum, but it may some negative attachments.

I've had a fortnight when my dowsing and muscle-testing have gone 'to pot'. I keep clearing. The last thing I dowsed was a 'poltergeist', which hopefully I've cleared.

It's an on-going battle.

Good luck.

Lynnie just seen your post, I get a kick where the A372 crosses the M5 Bridgenorth road on the north side,with me thinking Rose Quartz on a chain , and you dowsing the area/traffic there standing on the bridge ??
