Many people consider dowsing or divining for water or minerals an ancient superstition but there’s no shortage of practitioners in this area. I first started dowsing when I was a little girl. We had heard there was a hidden well in the garden so my sister and I would get our Y-shaped sticks and hold onto the two ends. We would walk up and down the garden saying “move when we reach the well” and sure enough, we had trouble holding onto the ends as the stick moved downwards. We still remember the excitement today!
Many years later, I was hooked on dowsing again. I could not believe the number of ways people were using dowsing in their lives. I knew you could find water, lost objects and ask questions with yes or no answers, but I had no idea you could use it for health. Practitioners use dowsing to detect allergies, what toxins are present in the body and find out what vitamins and minerals the body may be deficient in.
You can dowse using a variety of tools. I started with L-rods as I just couldn’t get on with a pendulum. Now I have many pendulums which I use successfully, made from wood, metal, quartz crystal, gemstones and I even have a fishing rod weight on a piece of string.
To be a good dowser, you really have to have faith in your own knowledge and never doubt it. The key is to work in a quiet place and practice, practice, practice once you have “programmed” your L-rods or pendulum. You can place a coin under a cup and practice your skills and ask “is it here?” and wait for the yes or no response. We even had a member who would use a pendulum over a map to locate missing people and another who used dowsing to work with the fraud squad.
Dowsing won’t work if you are tired, dehydrated, upset or personally involved, or where there are conflicting energies present. It won’t work for finding out the winning lottery numbers!
Many local well drillers and national waterboards use dowsing to locate where to drill or where the water runs and have a near-perfect record. As an expert dowser, they can tell you where to drill, the depth to drill, what the volume of water will be, the hardness of the water, the soluble chemicals and the bacteria levels. I went to a conference and a Water Board employee was there so I asked him if it was true that they use water dowsers. He said they did and were sometimes more accurate than their regular equipment costing thousands!
If you are interested in learning how to dowse, just let me know as I love teaching it!
