Dowsing is the process of using a tool such as a pendulum to discover things that cannot be discovered using our everyday senses. You can search for anything by projecting an intent of what is desired and receiving confirmation or non confirmation feedback through the body, usually by the movements of a dowsing instrument.
Dowsing, in general terms, is the art of finding hidden things. Usually, this is accomplished with the aid of a dowsing stick, rods or a pendulum. Also known as divining, water witching, doodlebugging and other names, dowsing is an ancient practice whose origins are lost in long-forgotten history. However, it is thought to date back at least 8,000 years. Wall murals, estimated to be about 8,000 years old, discovered in the Tassili Caves of North Africa depict tribesmen surrounding a man with a forked stick, possibly dowsing for water. Artwork from ancient China and Egypt seem to show people using forked tools in what might have been dowsing activities. Dowsing may have been mentioned in the Bible, although not by name, when Moses and Aaron used a "rod" to locate water. The first unambiguous written accounts of dowsing come from the Middle Ages when dowsers in Europe used it to help find coal deposits. During the 15th and 16th centuries, dowsers were often denounced as practitioners of evil. Martin Luther said dowsing was "the work of devil" (and hence the term "water witching"). How
Does Dowsing Work?
Some theorize there is a psychic connection established between the dowser and the sought object. All things, living and inanimate, the theory suggests, possess an energy force. The dowser, by concentrating on the hidden object, is somehow able to tune in to the energy force or "vibration" of the object which, in turn, forces the dowsing rod or stick to move. The dowsing tool may act as a kind of amplifier or antenna for tuning into the energy. Dowsers who seem to have a track record for success, they contend, are either lucky or they have good instincts or trained knowledge for where water, minerals and the like can be found. For believer or skeptic, there's no definitive proof either way. Albert Einstein, however, was convinced of the authenticity of dowsing. He said, "I know very well that many scientists consider dowsing as they do astrology, as a type of ancient superstition.
It is not a good idea to look for important things first up, such as an important lost document or piece of jewellery for three reasons. One is that it may not even be on the site any longer, secondly, there is too much stress and importance around these objects to allow you to relax. Thirdly, if you place too much importance on these objects, and cannot find them when you are just beginning to practice, you may lose heart and give up altogether. Develop slowly on less important things, as these can always be looked for later. Another good thing to look for may be the best place on your property for you to meditate or to practice your divining. The possibilities are endless.
Dowsing for Questions You can ask your rods to cross in front of you to provide a "No" answer and open up around you for a "Yes" answer. In this manner you can ask many questions by gently walking with your rods, accessing your subconscious and setting yourself free of ties that may bind you or hold you back from your true potential.
