Dowsing is the ancient art of finding water, minerals, and other objects. Our task here is to use the pendulum or dowsing rods to ask pertinent questions to important issues in our lives. These answers exist somewhere in the universe and using the pendulum connects us to those answers.
First, you will want to center yourself by clearing any distracting energies from your field. Secondly, you will ask the pendulum or rod this question: “May I, can I, should I use the pendulum for this purpose at this time.” Any “no” response to any part of the question requires that you go no further.
If you received a “yes” on all then you may continue. Ce sure that you are clear in asking. For example, I have two job interviews. Should I go to both? The response may be an ” I don’t know,” or a confused movement. Rephrase your question, “should I go to job interview A? Should I go to job interview B?”
With practice you will be able to find lost objects, gather information on foods/diet, or the correct answers to other needs. I would caution you to ask only serious questions as any other disrespects the pendulum and or connecting energies.
Amethyst is an extremely powerful and protective stone with a high spiritual vibration. It is also a natural tranquilizer. With its strong healing and cleansing powers, it is also a guardian against psychic attack, and able to transmute that energy into love. Amethyst is a great stone to help those with addictions and blockages of all kinds. Extremely beneficial to the mind, it calms or stimulates when appropriate, helping to feel less scattered, more focused and enhances the simulation of new ideas.
Amethyst helps with the decision making process, bringing in common sense, and spiritual insights. Balancing out highs and lows, it promotes emotional centering, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety. It also alleviates sadness, and grief and supports coming to terms with loss. Amethyst promotes the love of the divine, encourages selflessness and spiritual wisdom. Opening intuition and enhances psychic gifts, this is an excellent stone for mediation. One of the most spiritual stones, it provides insights into true nature and encourages selflessness and spiritual wisdom.

Crushed amethyst was used by the Ancient Greeks and Romans as a way to ward off intoxication. One story is told that partly this was due to the fact that the Romans sometimes put amethyst in their wine. Then the wine could be watered down and still retain its purple color from the stones within. That meant less alcohol, and thus, less intoxication. Both the Greeks and Romans made drinking cups of amethyst and wore talismans of amethyst to prevent intoxication.
There is a Greek legend of how amethyst got its purple color. Once Dionysus was so annoyed by Artemis that he set his sacred tigers upon a maiden attending her shrine. To preserve the maiden, whose name was Amethyst, Artemis petrified her in sparkling quartz. Lamenting this virgin’s demise, Dionysus poured a the contents of his cup over the statue, which immediately became infused with the purple of the grape.
