One of my best selling is the Conical Beech Wood pendulum. Joining this pendulum is the Conical Beech Wood pendulum with Witness Chamber.

This pendulum has a removable head revealing a recess where the dowser inserts small items. The idea of adding a “witness” to the chamber is to attune and focus the pendulum for specific tasks. Using an object as a witness helps influence the pendulum’s results.

In her book, Hands of Light, Dr. Barbara Ann Brennan suggests using the Conical Beech Wood pendulum for a variety of exercises measuring the human bio-field.

The Conical Beech Wood pendulum’s popularity is largely due to Dr. Ann Brennan because it’s recommended by her in her book, “Hands of Light.”

Dr. Barbara Ann Brennan is a pioneer and innovator in the field of and the Human System. Dr. Brennan is a world-renowned spiritual leader, healer, author, and educator.

Dr. Brennan holds a Doctorate of Philosophy, a Doctorate of Theology, a Master’s Degree in Atmospheric Physics, B.S. in Physics, and worked as a research scientist at NASA’s . Dr. Brennan is also a graduate of the Institute of Core Energetics and a Senior Pathwork® Helper.

With an early background as an astrophysicist, later work in Humanistic modalities and body psychology, and her ability to perceive the energies of the human aura, Dr. Brennan is able to form correlations between what is happening in the auric field, or bio-field, and physical manifestation.

The Conical Beech Wood pendulum is a versatile neutral pendulum suitable for any dowsing assignment.

Orgone Chakra Layered Crystal Dowsing Pendulum

This new Orgone pendulum addition follows the research of Dr Wilhelm Reich, an early 20th century Austrian psychiatrist. According to Dr. Reich, organic materials attract and hold orgone energy whereas non-organic metals simultaneously attract and repel this subtle energy.

Orgonite is a substance from resin, metals and quartz. This combination of reacting elements balances and harmonizes bio-energy. Orgone, chi or prana often describe the same thing.

Orgonite is based on two principles: The first, a 50-50 mix of resin. Resin represents the “organic” element. Resin is organic because it’s a petrochemical. The second element includes the addition of metal shavings which simultaneously attract and repel orgone. Finally, the addition of quartz crystal completes the orgonite mix.  As the curing resin shrinks, the pressure on the quartz creates a charge. This piezoelectric effect is unique to the Orgone pendulum.

What is Piezoelectricity?

Squeeze certain crystals (such as quartz) and you can make electricity flow through them. The reverse is usually true as well: if you pass electricity through the same crystals, they “squeeze themselves” by vibrating back and forth. That’s pretty much how piezoelectricity works.

Piezoelectricity or the piezoelectric effect is the appearance of an electrical potential or voltage across the sides of a crystal when subject to mechanical stress (by squeezing it).

In practice, the crystal operates as a tiny battery with a positive charge on one face and a negative charge on the opposite face. Current flows by connecting the two faces together to make a circuit. In the reverse piezoelectric effect, a crystal is mechanically stressed by applying a voltage across its opposite faces.

Due to the fact the elements in orgonite are constantly attracting and repelling energy, a “scrubbing” action takes place. Along with the charge the crystal emits, the cleans stagnant and negative energy, creating a healthy, vibrant field of energy.

Golden Quartz Crystal With Chain

The Golden Quartz Crystal Pendulum raises the holder’s energy vibration or frequency. Spiritualists call this crystal “The Golden Healer.” This crystal facilitates spiritual communications over distance including between worlds and dimensions.

Typically Golden Quartz crystal has an iron oxide coating under or in between layers of crystal. Colors range from a pale, clear yellow to lemon to darker mustard. Often this pendulum shows a rainbow when placed under a light source.

The Golden Healer quartz is famous for its metaphysical qualities, but it’s also of value in the world of physical healing as a tool for healers.

Crystal healers use the “Golden Healer” to cleanse and enhance all organs of the body. Healers sometimes use this gemstone to stimulate the body’s immune system, reduce tension and provide relief for those who struggle with a range of debilitating stomach problems.

Experts believe the Golden Quartz crystal provides healing on all levels making it a valuable tool for all energy healing tasks.  Golden Quartz crystals help promote the recognition of techniques and methods to further recovery of any disorder.

Selecting a Pendulum: Understanding the Differences

Selecting a Pendulum
Selecting the Right Pendulum is Personal

Selecting a Pendulum is Personal

Clients often ask me to help them select a pendulum. With several types and styles of pendulums available pendulum selection is often confusing.

Choosing a pendulum is a fun experience but for others, it’s a guessing game. So you’re wondering, are there any hard and fast rules when selecting a pendulum?

Not really. But then again, it depends on who you ask.

I recommend selecting a pendulum you are attracted to. Everyone is different, so for me to say you should only start off with a specific pendulum is limited.

That being said, I often recommend the Basic Teardrop or Basic Triangle. These pendulums are not too large or too small and are nicely weighted, rotate true and are inexpensive.

When I first started out, my first pendulum was the Clear-View Searcher hybrid pendulum with a large witness chamber. However, I never used the witness chamber and although the pendulum moved fine, I felt the desire to try another pendulum and see how it compared. I have used most of the pendulums I sell on my site and there are ones I like and others not so much. Since a pendulum is a tool you’ll work with often it’s important the pendulum “feels good” when you’re using it.


The weight of a pendulum can be a determining factor. Heavier pendulums take more energy to move but once they get going they give strong feedback. Lighter pendulums are easier to “move” and give a quicker response time. I prefer a medium-weight pendulum because when I’m asking many questions I like how quickly the pendulum moves on its axis from a “yes” to “no” position. I find small and light pendulums are not heavy enough and I don’t feel connected to the dowsing tool.

For example, the large Mer-Isis brass pendulum is a heavy pendulum. A couple of times It fell out of my hand because I lost connection to the pendulum in a meditative state. The heavier the pendulum the more attention it needs to maintain control.

Pendulum Shapes

Pendulums come in many different shapes: round, angular or a mix of both. Round shapes in Nature symbolize a feminine energy. For example, round fruits and vegetables are considered feminine. The pomegranate and melon fit this symbology. In architect, the cathedral with their domed ceilings fit this category.

Masculine energies tend to be angular from square to rectangular. The square jaw on a man sends a different message than the round face. Carrots and tall skyscrapers are examples.

For many the pendulum shape is a matter of aesthetics. Everyone is a blend of male and female energy and no pendulum is only male or female. Therefore, the shape of the pendulum is based more on an intuitive attraction.

The shape of a pendulum can affect how it moves when in use. Depending on how you hold your hand when dowsing, a pendulum may not move in perfect circles. I prefer nice circles and I find some pendulums don’t do that because of the way I hold it when dowsing. But that’s me and that may not be your own experience.

Although pendulums may be designed with a specific purpose, (i.e. the Mer-Isis is often used for healing) any pendulum can be used for any purpose. It is like choosing a wand in the Harry Potter movies. Look for a pendulum that matches your personality, is consistent in movement, and communicates reliable information.

Brass, Crystal or Wood?

Most pendulums are either made from Brass, Crystal or Wood. Is one better than the other?

Brass pendulums are durable and long-lasting. The are energetically neutral with a good feel in movement and weight. Brass pendulums don’t require “clearing” meaning they don’t accumulate emotional energies from the user or the environment.

Crystal pendulums are lighter than brass pendulums but are fragile. I’ve often broken the tip off a crystal pendulum by banging it on a table. Crystal pendulums are fast and responsive.

Crystal pendulums have their own unique energetic signature. For example the Rose Quartz pendulum is associated with the “heart” chakra. This makes it a good relationship pendulum. Further, the subtle emanations of the crystal affect the user if carried as a personal item. Therefore the same Rose Quartz will also affect the wearer much in the same way a charm works, again, depending on the attributes of the crystal.

Some crystals are active, dormant, or dead. Further, it’s important the crystal is harmonious with the individual. If the crystal is not suitable then the crystal will have an antagonistic alignment and work against the overall well-being of the wearer.

Crystals are also accumulators of energy and require periodic clearing or cleansing to remove any negative fields.

Wood pendulums are also a popular option. These pendulums are larger in size compared to the brass and crystal pendulums however they are extremely light. The Wood pendulums are energetically neutral, responsive and easy to read.

The Conical Beech Wood pendulum is easy to use and a favorite among many dowsers. Wood is versatile and long-lasting and don’t require clearing.

Experimentation will determine which pendulum works best for you. I often carry a brass and wood pendulum with me in my pendulum pouch.

Own More than One Pendulum

Many dowsers own one or more pendulums. I find some pendulums work better for different dowsing tasks. An artist uses several types of brushes to complete a painting. Similarly, a dowser will benefit from having two or three pendulums available for any assignment.

When choosing another potential pendulum to add to your collection, try using your current pendulum and query what other style of pendulum is a suitable addition. I carry two or three pendulums in my pendulum pouch. If I am not happy with the results, I switch pendulums.

The key thing to remember is the quality and reliability of the information one receives; so I’m less attached to a specific type of pendulum. If another pendulum isn’t working the way it should, I am not afraid to substitute it for another that feels better.

If you are new to dowsing, the Basic Teardrop, Basic Triangle or Conical Beech Wood are good starting pendulums. As your ability grows, there is a good chance you will want to try other pendulums. By experience you will find that certain pendulums will work better for different types of dowsing assignments. But are there hard and fast rules? I say go with your inner voice and let experience be your teacher.
