Dowsing the chakras
(Transcript below if you prefer to read)
Before going any further, let’s be clear about what we mean about chakras. Then we’ll move on to pendulums and chakras.
Chakra is a word from the ancient Sanskrit language which roughly translates as ‘wheel’ or ‘disk’. It might help to think of these as the places where the invisible or energetic aspect of your body meets with the visible, physical body itself, allowing a flow of energy to move through you.
There are considered to be seven major chakras forming a line down the body. But there are also many minor ones as well. For example, the hand has chakras, in the palm and also on the tips of the fingers.
In this video, we’ll be looking at the hand chakras and how you can use a pendulum to check on them. However, you can use the exact same principles on the seven major ones as well.
One thing should be made clear, however, and that is that no matter what pendulum you use, no matter how it is described, it will not clean up or alter any chakra at all. Any alteration to a chakra comes only through your focus, your intent or any number of environmental or emotional factors acting on you.
If you recall that the word ‘chakra’ translates as ‘wheel’, then, in order to be operating properly and effectively, the chakra should be open and able to spin. This is what can be checked using a pendulum.
In this case, you are not asking a question with a yes/no answer, but are using the pendulum to show you how a specific chakra is at that time.
To begin, hold the pendulum as you would normally, but have one fingertip of your opposite hand underneath it. Focus on wanting to see what the energy flow of that chakra is like and expect the pendulum to move in response to that focus.
For most people, the pendulum will describe a circle, clockwise or anti-clockwise. The width of the circle and the vigor or lack of it in the movement will tell you how strongly or weakly that particular chakra is at that time.
Once you have a response over the first finger, try the next and repeat the process. Often you will find that different fingers will have different directions of spin.
Also, you can try the pendulum over the palm chakra, which is usually much more vigorous than the fingertips. Remember that chakras are in constant motion and will vary in how open they are at different times and under different conditions.
This is not the place to go into what any particular response might mean, but, by doing this exercise regularly over several days, you will get a good idea of the general activity of your chakras.
Once you have the idea about your finger and hand chakras, then you can also check your seven main chakras simply by asking to be shown the energy of each chakra, one at a time.
From there you can begin to explore the many, many sites which speak of chakras and what they do.
Have you explored your hand chakras? What did you find? Did they all spin the same way? What else did you notice? Share your experiences or thoughts in the comments section below
