Dowsing (water witching, diving, doodlebugging…) is an ancient art of finding water, minerals, and objects. As everything has a certain frequency, the human mind (your super conscious mind) can connect with and understand the frequencies that everything gives off. This allows you to understand perceived amounts, distances, numbers, percentages and other requested areas. You may always request others to help you in your dowsing (spirit guides, guardian angels, St. Michael the Archangel, Mother Mary, etc.) depending what you need. It is important to remember that dowsing pendulums, “Y” rods, “L” rods and bobbers are just tools. They are not magical, they are just a connection to communicate to your higher self.
Most people will use pendulums. The proper way to hold a pendulum is with the tips of the thumb and fore finger pointing down, with 2 to 3 inches of string or chain. The first thing to do is to learn a yes and no, asking questions you know are true or false. Most dowsers use the charts Walter Woods describes in his “Letter to Robin” (available as a free download on the web). A no would be as if you are looking down on the face of a clock, with a no represented by the pendulum moving between 9 and 3 o’clock. A yes between 12 and 6 o’clock. Once a simple yes and no work for you, where should you hold the pendulum? Sitting down in a chair, with the pendulum in the hand you favor, start moving the pendulum, in a straight line, from your opposite knee in a straight line across your body to the other knee, asking the pendulum to give you a yes where it is best to hold the pendulum. You will find you dowse best over your right or left knee, as Chakra vortexes will move the pendulum. Also keep your elbow away from your side, not anchored to it. The movement of the pendulum in a clockwise motion will bring in beneficial energy and the movement in a counter clockwise direction will remove non-beneficial energy.
Now you are ready to start. You should always start with the questions “May I, Can I, Should I” and “Is there any reason I shouldn’t”. “May I” means do I have the appropriate permission to proceed and be involved. “Can I’ means do I have the ability to successfully dowse in this area and am I ready. “Should I” means considering all aspects related to this situation, is it appropriate, proper and suitable to proceed in this area. The first 3 questions should all respond with a yes; if a no, do not proceed. The last question should respond with a no, if a yes, do not proceed. Now you are ready to ask questions.
