Dowsing can be used in our daily lives for tracking down missing car keys, that have been absent-mindedly misplaced, or finding lost jewelry and other specific objects. Dowsing is also great for locating a lost pet… or even a child playing hide-and-seek!
The origins of dowsing can be traced back thousands of years, before technology and satellites were there to help locating oil…or pyramids. All those years ago, country folk would use a ‘Y’ shaped tree branch or twig to find water wells, or hidden treasure. It is commonplace these days to dowse for water, auras or even land-mines.
The only reason dowsing is being considered to be a ‘psychic tool’ is because scientists haven’t been able to find a logical explanation for how dowsing works. This is also complicated by the fact that some dowsers have better results than others. Their accuracy often depends on how attuned the dowser is to their dowsing tool. Fine tuning to this art seems to come with experience.
Endow with wisdom and intuition my pedulum, that I may hear the gentle, inspired counsel that comes from my heart ~ Cassandra Eason
When I begin a dowsing session, I set my intention as to what it is I want to uncover or find, and I ask for clear precise feedback. The feedback is given to me in the form of a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response from my dowsing tool. I believe that my guides help to influence my higher self in creating muscle contractions along my arm and hand, to influence the movement of the particular dowsing tool being used.
Each of my pendulums and dowsing rods are programmed from the start, so I know which motion signals ‘yes’ or ‘no’. When I do a dowsing session it helps energetically to have something like a photo, or another object in my hand which belongs to the person who the question relates. This is known as ‘psychometry‘
Unfortunately, I’ve also discovered that asking a question which is emotionally charged, for example “does he love me or not’, doesn’t always work, because one’s emotions tend to influence the response, and therefore you tend to receive the preferred answer!
What we consider supernatural becomes natural, while that which we have always seen as so natural reveals how wondrously supernatural it is ~ Frederick Franck
I have considerable collection of charts for dowsing, and these different charts have lists of options, such as different emotions which need to be addressed for healing, or a list of bodily systems that may require attention. I also have charts for direction and distance, as well as gemstones, hobbies, alternative remedies, and many more.
I have a collection of dowsing tools, including L-shaped dowsing rods, which I use for measuring auras in my healing work, or for locating things. I also have various pendulums which I use for confirmation readings or of with various charts for healing and asking all manner of questions.
You can improvise and make your own dowsing rods by bending wire coat hangers into an ‘L’ shape. Hold the short side of the ‘L’ in either hand and ask the rods to turn in a direction to give you a ‘Yes’ and then ask them to show you the direction they turn for a ‘No’.
Peasants have believed in dowsing, and scientists used to believe that dowsing was only a belief of peasants. Now there are so many scientists who believe in dowsing that the suspicion comes to me that it may only be a myth after all ~ Charles Fort
The same applies to a pendulum. You can make a pendulum using a piece of thin string or chain, approximately six inches long, from which a ring, bolt or similar sized object is suspended. You can easily program your pendulum to show you the response for ‘yes’ or ‘no’, just like you would with the dowsing rods.
Recently, when there was some building going on at the back of our house, my husband said he was having trouble locating a main water pipe. So, out I went with my dowsing rods and was all proud on locating the line under which the pipe laid. What I forgot to ask the pendulum was not only where the pipe was, but also which end the outlet was, because time was wasted by digging at the wrong end of the pipe line! Moral of the story… be specific when you ask your question or set your intention.
