The Practical Pendulum is a no-nonsense guidebook to pendulum dowsing designed to teach the novice and enhance the skills of the experienced practitioner. Baldwin is an experienced dowser who uses his skills to help find missing persons and to solve crimes. His approach is to demonstrate how to effectively use an incredible-yet-practical tool, an instrument that bridges the gap between a higher power and the human subconscious. The information you want to know is knowable - everything from where you lost your car keys to addressing everyday challenges and opportunities to discovering the purpose of life. The pendulum provides a proven way of accessing that information directly and through your own efforts. Topics covered include defining the pendulum and pendulum dowsing, selecting a pendulum, dangers to avoid and benefits to seek, pendulum language, problem solving tips, diagnosing problems, map dowsing, and a step-by-step how-to guide to conducting a successful pendulum session. Baldwin says a pendulum is nothing more than a weight on a string - a tool - but it is a practical tool that can open to new levels of self-awareness, personal achievement and a happier and more successful life.
