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.
Beech Wood Doppelmermet Pendulum
The Beech Wood Doppelmermet pendulum has a removable top revealing a deep Witness Chamber.
Constructed from Beech wood, the Doppelmermet pendulum is a variation on the original Mermet pendulum attributed to Abbe Mermet who is said to be a leading proponent of modern Radiesthesia or dowsing.
The hollow double ova shape enhances this pendulum’s receptivity. When a Witness or sample is placed inside the Doppelmermet’s Witness Chamber the Doppelmermet will resonate with the Witness enhancing the pendulum’s receptivity making it specific for certain assignments.
