The Ancient Art Of Dowsing

Click Here for a FREE psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comIf you live in a rural, arid area or grew up in a farming community, you might be familiar with the practice of ‘dowsing’ to searching for hidden, underground water. But did you know that dowsing is also used as a divination tool, as well as a spiritual practice?

The art form of dowsing dates back to ancient times, as it can be found depicted in old artwork found in Egypt, China and Babylonia. Dowsing for water, as it is practiced today, is believed to have originated the 16th century in Germany, where it was first used to search for metals.

Dowsing, however, is not only used to find water. It is also used by diviners and metaphysicians to predict future outcomes, perform healings, locate missing objects, and even to help solve crimes.

Instead of a dowsing rod, psychics use a pendulum or weighted item to ask their spiritual guardians or angels for guidance. The pendulum serves as a connection between the physical realm and the spirit realms. The answers from spirit is interpreted through the motion of the pendulum. For example, if the pendulum moves up and down, or counterclockwise, the answer may be no, or negative, while back and forth or clockwise usually suggests yes, or positive.

A skilled diviner is usually able to translate the results very accurately, although a beginner can also practice this art with some success. This allows someone who is new to the practice to ask simple yes or no questions to get results. For more advanced readings, with more complex questions, it’s best to consult a dowser with more experience, who can accurately interpret the results. Dowsing scales and charts are often used for this purpose.

Whether you interpret divination tools as a way to access a divine higher power or simply as a method of tapping into your inner self, they can be really amazing in helping you sort out your ~true feelings~ and get to the heart of a matter ~ Nina Kahn

Dowsing is in essence a form of energy channeling and a reading can do many useful things for you. People typically ask questions about love, careers, finances, or future events during readings, which is perfectly normal. Dowsing can, however, also be used to find all manner of hidden energies. If you are reading the chakras, for example, for the purpose of energy healing, it can help determine imbalances or misalignments, or narrow down sources of pain and discomfort in the body.

When reading the dowsing chart, the pendulum, with the help of one’s spirit guides, will point in the appropriate directions. They are also able to find lost objects, such as a wallet or keys, for example. In addition, professional dowsers have also been known to find missing persons and pets.

Maybe you are looking for a new job or a new home? Consider dowsing over a map or atlas. If you are looking to improve your health, a dowsing session may be able to suggest better foods to eat, or specific parts of your body which are causing problems. Maybe you’ll even find that hidden bit of treasure in your backyard or attic. The applications are endless.

As is often the case with divinatory and intuitive practices, there isn’t really science behind dowsing. But, if you give it a try and find comfort in the responses you receive, there’s no reason it shouldn’t be part of your personal spiritual routine ~ Sara Coughlin

When beginning dowsing, it is crucial to start in a relaxed and balanced state of mind, as with any reading. Communication with the spirit world always works best with a clear and open mindset. You may not always like the answers you receive from spirit, but your spirit guardians always have your best interests in mind.

Choose a dowsing tool (traditional pendulum or any other suitable object) which suits you and your energies. Be ready for any and all eventualities, and thank your spirit guides for their messages when you are finished.

Dowsing is an ancient art which anyone can practice. It seems intimidating at first until you realize that it’s the equivalent of asking the universe for the right set of directions. Since your spiritual guides will never steer you wrong, trust them and begin a new journey of discovery.
