Using a Dowsing Crystal – with Susan Royle

We asked Sue Royle from Tranquility Time Retreats about dowsing.

Choosing your Crystal

Let your crystal choose you.  It’s best to shop in person rather than online if buying for yourself but receiving one as a gift is excellent!   If you’re shopping, ask the shop if you can hold each crystal pendulum.  Hold it gently by entwining the chain/string/ribbon that it’s held on around your fingers.  Does it feel nice?  Does it spin or rock from side to side, or is it totally still?

It might be that you choose a pretty colour with your eyes but once you’ve held a few then you change your mind, choose slowly and wisely – your dowsing crystal will choose you.  There’s lots of choice, from rose quartz, clear quartz, amethyst and many, many more – you might not find the right one for you on your first shopping trip.

Cleansing your Crystal

You can cleanse a dowsing crystal in the same way you cleanse all your other crystals; placing under the moonlight of the full moon, rinsing in a fast flowing stream, leaving in sand, using a smudge stick etc..

Using your Crystal

Once you’ve cleansed your crystal you can start to use it, hold the chain lightly in your nondominant hand, and wait for the crystal to hold still.  Ask it a question to which you know the answer, such as ‘Is my name Sue?’  Your dowsing crystal may turn clockwise, anti-clockwise, of swing from side to side – continue to ask it questions and note down what happens.  This will let you ascertain what it does for a YES and what it does for a NO.  Use your pendulum often and get to know how it likes you to phrase a question to get the best results.

What can you do?

Now the fun can start!  You can ask your pendulum anything you like!  Use it to find lost items by asking yes or no answerable questions, use it to ask life questions and see what you think to the answers it gives you.  Use it to hover over your essential oils to see which ones you need that day.  The list is endless!  Use your dowsing pendulum wisely.

Prince William School Celebrates Fifty Years with Fifty Tales

During the first pandemic lockdown last year former Prince William School, Oundle headteacher, Chris Lowe, wrote a tale-a-day about life and goings-on in schools. Now, ex-students and staff are publishing a book of fifty of his tales. Called ‘Telling Tales Out of School’ the book will mark the 50th anniversary of the opening of the school in September 1971.

Chris Lowe, 84, who was the founder head of the school, set himself the task of writing 100 stories about school life, one every day for 101 days.

Chris explained, ‘I took Good Friday off, to give both myself and the readers a bit of a rest,’ ‘I have ended up writing 140 tales… and the readership has grown to more than 500. It is now time to watch our rhubarb grow.’

Chris Lowe has donated the proceeds from the sale of the book to charity. The first one to benefit will be the Oundle-based ‘James Rutterford Trust’.

Pat Rutterford, who with her late husband set up ‘The James Rutterford Trust’ in 1993 in memory of their son, James, who was a student at Prince William School, said:

‘The tales are delightful and I am so grateful to Chris for donating them to raise money for our trust which supports students of Prince William School.

We are fortunate, too, to have a professional editor, illustrators and business experts, who like Chris are members of the Prince William School community. They have all given their services free of charge.’

Jenny Blount, who is leading the publishing project said:

‘The tales are a chronicle of the funny side of school life in the second half of the twentieth century, but what they tell us about growing up and living in a community is timeless. Every reader, whichever school they attended, will recognise with a smile something that is familiar… I defy anyone not to laugh aloud at some of the hilarious shenanigans!’

The book, ‘Telling Tales out of School’ will be launched in September 2021 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the opening of the school in 1971.

A reunion for present and past students is planned at the school for Saturday 4th September 2021. Further details of the event are available from the website “tellingtales.bigcartel.com.

‘Already nearly three thousand former students have accessed the information set out in the group post ‘PWS 50th Anniversary Reunion 2021’ on Facebook,’ said Jenny Blount. ‘So long as the country can weather the restrictions of the pandemic we are going to have a really memorable event, a real ‘Party on the Park’. Chris Lowe’s book will be a major fund-raiser on the day. We are expecting hundreds of ex-students and staff to meet up again, and enjoy the attractions we are planning.’

The chief guest at the event will be ex-student Nev Fountain, who is now a member of staff of ‘Private Eye’, a lead writer on Radio 4’s ‘Dead Ringers’, a ‘Dr Who’ writer  and humorous detective novelist writing under the pseudonym Mervyn Stone.
