Perhaps, dowsing is best known for locating water (dowsing for water), gold, oil, and other minerals, but dowsers have also used pendulum dowsing to find missing keys, eyeglasses, jewelry, and literally anything they put their minds to.
Pendulum dowsing has also been called "divining" for its ability to provide information and predict the future. The term "pendulum dowsing" is often used to refer to the search for specific targets, while the term "pendulum divining" is most often used in reference to seeking precise information.

Pendulum dowsing can be used in a variety of different ways. In its most simple form, you can use it to answer questions or aid in decision making. Pendulums can also be used for:
- Healing purposes and identifying allergies.
- To cleanse and dispel negativity in a room.
- To help you find lost objects or pets.
- To find water or ley lines (dowsing rods are often used for this too, which work in a similar way to a pendulum).
