Dowsing devices come in all sizes, shapes and materials. Many dowsers have their favourite tool and shape, which works well for them for a specific task.
The most common and best known in dowsing is the Pendulum. It is easy to carry (pockets, purse) and is suitable for all aspects of dowsing. Checking, clearing and calibrating energy, finding lost objects, buying the appropriate vitamins and getting quick answers where ever you are.
L-Rods, are thin metal rods that are L shaped, which you can use for yes and no questions but are most often used to find energy lines, water veins and tracking ley lines. L-Rods can be used single-handed or with both hands.
A Bobber will also give you yes and no answers. Very good as a visual pointers and are easy to use. They can be used like the pendulum but is not as easy or convenient to carry around.
Find which tool works best for you. You might have different tools for different applications. A simple plain nut on a string will work as well as a fancy pendulum – it is personal preference and enjoyment which style you choose.
