What is Rods Dowsing?
Explanations of Dowsing with Rods ~ The use of dowsing rods or pendulums to find treasure ~ The use of rods to find minerals or water, water pipes ~The use of rods dowsing for finding unseen objects , often utilised in findingarchaeology artifacts
How Does Dowsing Work?
Dowsing Techniques ~Dowsing involves asking a series of 'yes' or 'no' questions ~The dowsing tool then responds to these question with a movement ~The dowser will know the answer by the type of movement the tool makes ~For example; if with rods dowsing the rods swing outward or cross each other the answer is 'yes'. If with rods dowsing the rods don't move at all then the answer is 'no'. ~It is through a series of questions from the dowser and responses by the tool that the dowser gets closer to target and eventually finds what he/she is looking for.
How Dowsing Began ~ Dowsing has been going on for thousands of years ~Cave paintings dated back 8 thousand years ago appear to show a forked stick ~Other ancient pictures of dowsing have been found in Egyptian and Chinese artwork ~Dowsing was used by European miners in the 15th century ~Dowsing became known by authority in particular the church as the work of the devil over time and therefore disappeared from public view ~Peasants in particular needed dowsing to find their water source and so it was done secretly ~ This is perhaps why the Y shaped stick was used commonly because it could be broken from a bush and destroyed after use
Today It is a skill used by authority but is not necessarily valued by them for example; police use dowsers to find where murder victims are located but this is not something they always openly discuss.
Tools Used for Dowsing ~Rods- A tool with two L shaped rods commonly made out of metal. They are held parallel to the ground with the short end of the rod in each hand. The rods dowsing will cross when the target is near. ~Pendulum- A tool with a device hanging from a string commonly made out of crystal or metal. It may swing or move back and forth when the target is near ~Fork stick- A tool commonly made from a Y shaped stick or fresh tree branch. This is the most traditional tool and is also held parallel to the ground. The stick moves up or down when it is near target.
There is no limit to the tools you can use or the materials the tools are made from. Some people are able to dowse with plastic or parts of their bodies. It is about finding what works for you.
Types of Dowsing
Where to Dowse? ~Map dowsing is achieved without physically being at a site. It requires a dowsing map which could be any map of the location you are searching within. A pendulum or rod could be used. The pendulum is held over the map and will indicated when asked to show the target area by swinging or moving back and forth. ~On sight dowsing is when the dowser is physically present at the location where he/she is searching.
Can Kids Dowse?
Kid Dowsers ~Yes KIDS can learn to dowse. We all have this ability. ~Like other ESP abilities such as clairvoyance or telepathy it is necessary to find inner silence to be able to access this ability ~ SO try and be still, clear your mind of everyday thoughts and try and totally focus on the sensations experienced when moving the rods about ~ Don't expect too much, listen to your intuition, that feeling in your tummy that tells you something exiting is happening
How to Develop Your Dowsing
Things You Will Need to do in Order to Dowse Accurately
Find your 'yes' and 'No' Concentrate Ask the right questions Practice
We will work with the Rods dowsing through out these exercises but once the principles or techniques are learnt you can apply these to other tools
Getting the Feel of the Rods Activity
Hold one rod in each hand parallel to the ground Feel them as an extension of your body Find a comfortable grip slightly firm but not so tight that they could never move They may begin to swing all over the place without you physically causing it (this is good) Now walk with them and concentrate on keeping them still They may feel more comfortable with the extension of the rod above your hand or below. Time will tell as you work through the other exercises. Now allow them to move at their own will Continue allowing them to move and consciously making them stop until it happens instantly
Finding Your 'Yes' and 'No'
With complete concentration Ask the rods dowsing "Show me my 'yes'" Pay attention to how the rods move This is the movement that shows you the answer is 'yes' Ask the rods dowsing "show me my 'no'" Pay attention to how the rods move This is the movement or none movement that shows you the answer is 'no' The most common 'yes' is movement and the most common 'no' is none movement To test the responses ask a question that you know the answer to Example- "Am I wearing red shoes?" This may need to be done a few times until you can trust the response of your rod Keep in mind that your degree of concentration will affect the results Also keep in mind that your responses for 'yes' and 'no' may change It is a good idea to ask the rod to show you your 'yes' and 'no' at the beginning of each dowsing session to check this
Lay a piece of rope, garden hose or string in a line in front of you Hold the rods parallel to each other and the ground Close your eyes Stand back from the line Focus on the rope Become the rope Ask "Where is the rope?" as you walk forward Stop if your rods dowsing show you a 'yes' Notice where you are If you were focused your rods dowsing should have crossed or given you a 'yes' How to as your Questions
It is important that your question be able to be answered by a 'yes' or 'no' The rods dowsing can not reason Be specific as possible If you are dowsing treasure and ask "Show me the treasure" you could be shown a tin can. Your rubbish may be someone else's treasure. What do you define as treasure? If you are money dowsing a more appropriate question would be "Is this where the money is?" The rods dowsing make no judgment. They tell the truth. Formulate one after the other so you can narrow it down i.e. Is there water in this paddock? Is it within 100 square meters of me? Is it within 50 square meters of me? Then you would want to know if the water is drinkable, if its below the surface etc. These types of questions allow for accurate results
You will know that you are dowsing when you come to a conclusion that your logical mind would not have given From money dowsing, dowsing treasure to dowsing water there is no limit to what you could search for. Enjoy discovering.
