Practicing Often – Inaccurate Answers
I have thoroughly enjoyed your website and appreciate your insight.
I bought my first pendulum a few months ago, and had little success with it after spending hours working with it. My sister had one that was almost identical and she asked hers if a different pendulum would work better for me. It said "yes", so I made a trip to the metaphysical bookstore.
The first pendulum I picked up there immediately started working for me in the store. I had never felt such a strong connection, and the "yes" answer was hugely swinging up and down in a straight line and my "no" was a very strong side to side. I had done the exact same thing with my former pendulum and never once got the results.
I have practiced the psychic breathing technique prior to dowsing with my pendulum, but I still feel like my answers are not accurate. In looking for a lost item, it was completely wrong so I started having practice sessions.
I always meditate first and connect with my highest power, but even in my practice sessions the easy answers don’t come. I don’t feel like my answers will ever be accurate if it won’t answer simple ones correctly.
I wrote down the names of my children, myself and my husband on identical pieces of paper which I folded exactly the same. Closing my eyes, I selected one and put the rest aside. I opened the paper to "show" my guides without peeking and then covered it up. Then I went through the names slowly asking, "Does the piece of paper right here (indicating) have the name Mary on it?"
Then I waited for "yes or no" and went through the rest of the names. I was able to get clear and concise answers for each name and it seemed accurate because I ended up with only 1 yes. When I opened the paper to look, it was always incorrect. Not one time were my answers accurate.
It is very disheartening because I feel like I’m 100% onboard. Also I thought by working with something simple and easy to track I would have no mental hang-ups. I don’t have emotional ties to which name is on the paper and it seemed like a good practice method. I know I could use basic things like, "Is the sky blue?" or "Is it raining right now?" but since I obviously know the answers to those I don’t see how I could truly track if I am moving the pendulum myself because I know, or if it is a real answer.
I have tried to get answers in the store when selecting vitamins, or herbs for a specific ailment, but can’t get good input either.
Do you have any suggestions?
I am already doing everything I’ve read and can’t see why it’s not working for me. I feel very strongly that I have a very intense sense of intuition and a gift beyond typical people. This was recently revealed to me and I am trying to hone my skills on this so I can get answers as to where I need to focus my studies. I have had tarot readings that also say I do have a gift and need to work on my path.
Thank you so much for taking the time to dwell on my questions. There is so much information everywhere and I really thought the pendulum was a great start for me.
