You can make your own pendulum by attaching a plumb bob,
a key or a ring onto the end of a length of cord or string or alternatively
buy one of the many long crystal quartz, rounded or pointed at one end that
contains the living energies of the earth.
The string is held between the thumb and forefinger and
it should be between 27 cm (9 inches) and 120 cm (40 inches) long, although
to start with the string should be fairly short. If you are dowsing over a chart
or a map then 15 - 20 cm is probably about right. Any excess string can be wrapped
around your index finger.
Charging your crystal or pendulum with power
Place your crystal or pendulum in a small plant pot and
cover with earth for one hour. Remove from the pot and run the crystal under
water for one minute to remove any excess soil, then place the crystal into
a bowl of clear spring water into which you have dissolved a few grains of sea
salt and leave for at least four hours. When you're ready to remove it place
on a piece of cotton or silk material and leave in the sunlight to dry. At dusk,
light a pure white candle and pass your pendulum through the flames seven times,
calling upon the four elements, earth, fire, air and water to charge your crystal.
Leave the candle burning in a safe place near to the crystal so that the light
falls onto it and when the candle is burned through place your pendulum into
a dark silk or small black velvet bag until you're ready to use it.
