My dear teenage granddaughter, Rosie, delights in making fun of me for using a pendulum to get answers to questions. She thinks I’m weird.
She should have been with me yesterday when JoAnn and I visited the Richard III Exhibit in Leicester. (We live in a village quite close to that city.)
Rosie would have been shocked to learn how the remains of the king that Shakespeare immortalized in his famous play Richard III, were recently discovered deep beneath a city car park.
Richard was the last English King to die in battle. He was killed in the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. He was hastily, and unceremoniously, buried by friars in a church graveyard. Over the centuries, the whereabouts of that site was completely forgotten.
A search for Richard’s body began in August 2012, initiated by the ‘Looking for Richard Project’ with the support of the Richard III Society. The archaeological excavation was led by the University of Leicester Archaeological Services.
While the exhibit gave a lot of interesting facts about him, the science and the history, there was only one reference tucked away in a corner to explain exactly how his grave was located and his body discovered.
This was the piece I found to be by far the most interesting. (You won’t find anything about if you Google the story, though! Too wu-wu for people I guess.)
A woman, whose name I don’t recall, was going on vacation and wanted a book to read on the journey. She picked up a book about Richard III and became enthralled with the story, almost to the point of obsession. She felt impelled to go to Leicester where the search was taking place.
She eventually found herself in a nondescript car park not far away from the site of the old church, now the site of Leicester Cathedral, where legend had it the friars had buried Richard.
She walked to a spot in the churchyard and said. “He’s right here.” Her body was shaking almost uncontrollably as she picked up the energy. She wasn’t using a pendulum. She didn’t need to. She was dowsing with her body.
Amazingly, the archaeologists were impressed enough to take her at her word and began digging. They found his skeleton exactly where she said he would be.
Dowsing is an amazingly helpful tool – if you can learn to trust it, that is.
As you may know, I recently had an interesting experience earlier this year in which I discovered I had rectal cancer. Since it was dangerously close to my anus, surgery was recommended + radiation and chemo.
Being interested and believing in complementary energy medicine, I was faced with a thousand choices. Which ones should I use? Should I do the allopathic treatments as well or not, and if so, which ones?
Thank goodness I had my pendulum to get the answers to those questions. It took a long time because you can only ask Yes/No questions, and you have to check by keeping on asking the question in different ways until you are sure.
You also know that the pendulum is right when you consistently get the answer you don’t want, no matter how you ask the question.
What Rosie hasn’t yet figured out is that it has nothing to do with the pendulum. It’s all about your intuition and how your body, through minute involuntary movements, uses the pendulum to magnify the body signals coming from your Higher Self.
The woman who found King Richard III simply didn’t need a pendulum to amplify the messages coming from her Higher Self. It was so strong she simply had to get her mind out of the way and follow the energy.
Getting your mind out of the way is the hardest part. However, when you do, dowsing works fine.
Postscript: As you may know if you have been following my cancer story on Facebook, I did do radiation and chemo, but refused surgery. I also did a number of alternative treatments. Two weeks ago, I had another colonoscopy, and the result showed that the cancer had disappeared completely.
So you see, it’s possible that a pendulum can save your life. There were many alternative treatments that I had thought were good that my pendulum said would, in my case, be harmful and should definitely be avoided.
Only you, deep down, know what’s good for you and what isn’t. The pendulum helps you find out.
This is why, when I reached out for people to send me healing energy, I specifically said, “Please do not send me advice.” I already had a much more reliable source for what I needed. My pendulum gave me access to it.
