Valuable advice, Census ... thank you
Wish I'd had you to turn to a decade or so ago --- BEFORE I launched
into my first (and only) dowsing experiment.
Initially, I began as part of a self-help thing, on the advice of the author of
a book I was reading which suggested pendulum-use as a tool for locating buried negative suggestions supposedly lodged within the subconscious.
But I was thrilled that I'd managed to 'make it work' (pendulum dowsing)
and allowed myself to be carried off on a tangent.
It was a wild ride. I still have the notes and pendulum stowed away in a bag.
The information I received was incredible (an understatement).
For three days, I was totally engrossed. I believed I was in communication with my own subconscious mind and was enjoying the novelty of discovering
just how much this hidden part of my mind knew. Weird but fascinating, like a new toy, new 'best friend'. And I was forced to suppose that my
subconscious must be obtaining all of IT'S information from the alleged 'universal unconscious' aka 'akashic records'. What I (at the time)
believed to be 'my subconscious' was quite endearing. I was stunned to find 'my subconscious' very much had a mind of its OWN !! Which blew what
was left of my mind. How many 'minds' did I HAVE, I wondered. Now of course, I realise it was very likely NOT my subconscious at all, but a spirit
(which is just as hard to deal with and accept).
Then something altered. My senses went into high-alert. The atmosphere in the room changed. It didn't feel nice. And the information I was
receiving degenerated into rubbish.
But worst of all was the sensation that I was NOW in communication with something
quite horrible. I was suddenly afraid, even though it was a sunny day.
I immediately released the pendulum, closed the notebook, crossed the room and
flung open all the windows and doors then went outside into the sun and fresh air.
Afterwards, I packed the pendulum, notes and diagrams etc. in a bag and put it
away. I felt as if something bad, if not dangerous, had touched me and attempted to insinuate itself into my mind.
However, the information I'd received PRIOR to this invasion intrigued me. Some months later, I laboriously wrote to several historical societies in
Scotland, to see if the information received via pendulum would be substantiated. Finally, after a period of months, I received from Scotland copies
of Poll Tax records dating back hundreds of years. And they did confirm the information I'd been provided during my pendulum experiments. Quite
staggering in its implications.
I hadn't intended to communicate with anything other than my own mind. I hadn't realised a pendulum could be used as a medium between spirits and
the living. I believed dowsing 'worked', but believed it was used to locate water, objects, to determine which foods are fresh, beneficial, etc.
And I knew pendulum dowsing was used to determine the sex of chickens and so on. Thus, I hadn't been aware of the necessity to seek protection from
guides and hadn't done so.
Afterwards, I believed I WAS in communication with a decent spirit -- until the disturbing one interrupted. Now, I consider I was very fortunate and
was warned in the nick of time, via my senses. It certainly shook me up. To the extent I haven't attempted to use a pendulum since, regardless of
the fascinating information I received.
A few years ago, I read that people have used pendulums in much the same way as ouija boards (which are something I avoid). I recognised that I had
semi-inadvertently placed myself in such a situation. At the same time, I found it hard to reconcile 'communicating-spirits' with my everyday life.
Squaring this type of experience with your practical self is always a conflict, isn't it, no matter how many psychic experiences you have.
Thanks to your advice, I now appreciate the necessity to seek protection before, during and after. Thank U
