Dowsing is not just limited to finding water as many people assume, one can learn to detect the energy of the land as well as the human aura.
Many people are skeptical about dowsing until they try it for themselves but nearly one quarter of all adults will obtain the dowsing reaction immediately open trying it. It's simple and easy to learn. You may have to practice for awhile before you achieve a level of proficiency but nearly everyone will gain some mastery given time and perseverance, and children are almost universally, natural dowsers.
Dowsing will take you as far as your sensitivity will allow. As soon as you develop confidence in your dowsing you automatically begin to develop psychically. A description of dowsing or "divining" as it is otherwise called, is the ancient art "of locating something by using sensory means other than the five senses of sight, sound, taste, touch and smell."
Dowsing tools, such as Pendulums and L- Rods, can be used by almost anyone with a good degree of success. Very sensitive people or those who have dowsed for some time can feel an "energetic perception" directly within their body, this is known as "deviceless dowsing" using only intuitive psychic ability.
Who can be a Dowser?
Again the short answer is, Everyone. Once you have been shown the basics and have accepted that it is a gift open to everyone and you are prepared to put yourself out a little, especially in the early stages you will be on the right road to be coming a competent dowser. It requires a lot of practice to build up your confidence. Until you have built up that confidence keep away from skeptics because they can undermine you quicker than anything else. At first I was hesitant and embarrassed at the thought of being seen walking along with a pendulum or pair of rods or twig from a tree, I have now developed a thick skin and am oblivious to the scoffers. The best form of defence is to thrust the rods into their hands and tell them to have a go, it is surprising how many scoffers and skeptics get the shock of their lives when they realise that the rods are responding to something for them.
So let us clear up one point straight away. Dowsers are not ‘odd’ people. They are very ordinary men and women who have developed their sensitivity for practical purposes and use it on practical problems, the outcome of which are demonstrable, thus their work can be seen to be correct (or not).
Be keen, be confident, be true to yourself and your dowsing – do not bite off more than you can chew by overconfidence. One secret is practice – practice – and even more practice. Where possible enroll for dowsing courses through the Workers Education, Adult Education or courses run by experienced dowsers of good reputation. Ladies seem to have an in-built sensitivity and intuition which stand them in very good stead.
