Let’s start at the beginning… What is a pendulum?
A pendulum is a small weight on a string or chain. That’s it. It can be any weight, and it can be any sort of string or chain. Normally they are small. The weight is normally an object about 1/2 inch by 1 inch in size. The chain or string is usually about 8 inches long. The whole thing fits easily in a small pocket.
Throughout history pendulums have been used to locate water, gold, gems, and other valuable items. In Europe early scientists and doctors would use pendulums to locate infections and weak areas of the body. Doctors would also use certain pendulums to determine the gender of unborn infants.
People also trust the pendulum enough and have developed such a relationship to let the the pendulum guide them with the most difficult spots of their lives. During WWII, a pendulum was used by Colonel Kenneth Merrylees to locate deeply buried bombs. Many miners from South Africa will invite pendulists to help them locate precious minerals in the earth. These small wonders have a long history.
