Father Abbe Mermet (1866 – 1937)
The Mermet and Doppelmermet pendulums are associated with Father Abbe Mermet, a priest from Switzerland.
Abbe Mermet wrote the seminal book Principles and Practice of Radiesthesia. This classic was first published in France fifty years ago and details the fruits of forty years research and application in Radiesthesia or dowsing. The book shares his observations and comments on dowsing for water, mineral prospecting and diagnosing disease. Abbe Mermet gave advice on how to use a pendulum and aided in missing persons cases.
Abbe Mermet popularized the use of the witness chamber. He drilled a hole inside the pendulum and placed herbs in the cavity. He proved material placed inside the pendulum emits a vibration or radiation field increasing the pendulums sensitivity to other emanations in the environment both locally and at a distance.
He also proved these “vibrations” could be transmitted to other people. The bulk of his work, written if French, is the framework of modern day’s European School of Dowsing.
Abbe Mermet’s novel ideas and research established dowsing or Radiesthesia as a respectable science.
Abbe Mermet Brass Pendulum with Witness Chamber
The Mermet pendulum made of fine brass has a good lineage based on the late work of Abbe Mermet (1866-1937), a Swiss clergyman who documented and wrote his findings regarding dowsing approximately 75 years ago.
Abbe Mermet’s research is as valid then as it is today thus making the Mermet brass pendulum and the Doppelmermet brass pendulum favorite selections by skilled dowsers worldwide.
Due to its deep Witness Chamber this is a perfect pendulum for any dowsing assignment including healing and searching tasks.
The large, deep and easy to access witness chamber increases this pendulum’s usefulness and versatility.
The Mermet brass pendulum is a good pendulum for outdoor work. With its large witness chamber, and balanced weight the Mermet remains solid and stays true under fluctuating weather conditions.
The Mermet pendulum was invented by Abbe Mermet, who many consider to be a pioneer in Radiesthesia or dowsing.
