Reiki and Pendulum Dowsing


Article by Reiki Master Sunetra Dasgupta

Reiki, when combined with any other healing modality, works wonders. I have combined Reiki with Hypnotherapy, Access Bars, Angel Cards etc. and the results were fantastic. Lately I have started combining Reiki with Pendulums and the results are amazing.

Before we proceed further let us understand what is dowsing?

Dowsing is detection of energy and finding answers. Since ancient times in China, it was used to find answers to once question. Dowsing became more popular since 1920 when the Germans started finding underground water and minerals with help of a dowser.

A pendulum dowser generally gives us 3 general answers 1) Yes 2) No 3) Maybe

The answers are more or less correct provided the question asked is not extremely time bound. For ex: “Will I meet my soul mate tomorrow?” There is no guarantee that the answer shall be right. But if I ask the same question stating “Shall I meet my life partner within 6 months?” the answer provided shall be 99% accurate.

I always prefer to use a Crystal Pendulum, as I also use mine for healing people. It is preferable to have a pendulum with minimum metal casing, as metal blocks healing energies.

It is important we bond with our pendulums; they love it when they are pampered and preferably give them a name with which you are going to address them. I have named mine Alonya. The pendulum is no less than a child to me as it guides me with right answers and helps me in healing others.

How to charge a pendulum and get answers with Reiki?

Let me break it into few steps for your convenience:

  1. Immerse the pendulum into rock salt for 8 hours to remove all impurities.
  2. Wash the pendulum under running water, and you can also run it through sage smoke, though not mandatory.
  3. Charge it with Reiki by drawing all the symbols known to you and give Reiki to it for at least 7 minutes along with it I ask the Reiki Master and Guides, Angels and Archangels to come and bless my crystals, also sometimes I just play the lord’s prayer to charge it or put up any Buddha Mantra like “Om Mani Padme Hum”.
  4. Once the Pendulum is charged, touch it once on your third eye chakra and once on your heart chakra.
  5. Suspend the pendulum by its chain and ask 3 questions to the pendulum with its name. For ex: if you have named your Pendulum Mary, then you can ask (a) “Mary show me your Yes”, the pendulum will move in a certain direction, you can remember or note down the direction the pendulum will move when it shall give you a positive answer. (b) “Mary show me your No”, again the pendulum will move in a certain direction, and for the skeptics, no it shall not move in the same direction as yes! (c) “Mary show me your Maybe”, the pendulum shall move in a particular direction which is different from the direction of “Yes” and “No”.
  6. Now one can ask their questions, and the pendulum shall move in a certain direction to give answers in Yes, No or Maybe. Hence the questions need to be framed accordingly. You can ask one question twice or thrice just to make sure the answer is correct.
  7. As you bond more with your pendulum and ask questions, the answers shall be more and more accurate, practice it a number of times before you start doing it professionally.

How the Pendulum helps with healing?

Since I infuse my pendulum with Reiki, it helps in removing pain, balancing chakras, passed life blocks and negative energies from people and their houses!

Suspend the pendulum on top of the persons crown chakra or shoulder and ask the pendulum to clean and balance the person’s chakra, it will suddenly keep rotating at a very high speed to clean the chakras and stop when they are cleaned and balanced. One can do similar healing for pains, psychic attacks, and removal of negative energies.

Pendulum dowsing has given instant results when it comes to healing pains, and remove negative energies. The client has given me a feedback about how good they are feeling in less than 5 minutes of cleaning their energies with the help of pendulum. Also since I bond with my pendulum the answers are most of the time correct. One should remember to clean their pendulum every 7 days else they will get stagnated with others energy and the results shall not be up to the mark.

Though Pendulum dowsing is taught by most of the Reiki Practitioners either in Second or Third level of Usui Reiki, for those who do not know much about dowsing hope this shall help!

  1. Excellent article mam
    u covered everything so beautifully in this article
    I also do dowsing not very often…and I can understand how well u hv covered the things..well done


  2. Thank you, Sunetra I use a pendulum when reading for people with good success, but I love your suggested uses with healing. I will be trying those. Thank you and love and light to you for sharing.

  3. Sunethra!
    wonderful!!! have understood how effectively pendulum can be used.. to find put answers..
    keep writing
    Love and cheers..Vijaya

  4. Thank you Sunethra for this wonderful information, I have used a pendulum in Reiki, but only to check if Chakras are balanced.

  5. Even though I am practicing Reiki as a healer and a teacher for the past 12 years ,I have not used crystal for healing purpose till now. Here after I will certainly use crystal- dowsing as part of my healing. Thanks to Sunethra Dasguptha

  6. Very helpful article. I use pendulum to set up treatment plans for my clients. I ask my Reiki guides and angels for number of treatments the person needs and duration of each treatment in minutes by holding pendulum over a number chart.

  7. If I were to hang the pendulum in the middle of a door way to use it on myself to have it above my crown chakra would that work? It’s hard to hold some thing that long above my own head.

  8. I am looking for a round crystal pendulum similar to the one which you have pictured. I have not been able to find one in the last few years. Where can I get one? I am a healer.

  9. Excellent write up dear Sumetra. I also have a crystal pendulum. Was using very often in the past but is now lying just like that. Yesterday only thought of using it again and stumbled on this beautiful article of yours, clearing all my doubts and motivating me once again to seek its guidance. Thanks a lot…🙏
