Come Dowse With Me

This special edition newsletter is all about dowsing, the possibilities are endless!


A little bit of history to start with.... 

Dowsing is an ancient practice that uses a tool, such as a pendulum or rods, to detect subtle energies and information. It can be used to find water, minerals, lost objects, and even to answer questions about oneself and the world around us.


The history of dowsing is long and complex, dating back thousands of years. Evidence of dowsing practices can be found in ancient cave paintings which when carbon dated were over 8000 years old and dowsing tools have been discovered in archaeological sites all over the world.


Dowsing was also practiced by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans.


In the Middle Ages, dowsing was widely used to find water and minerals, but it was also used for a variety of other purposes, such as finding lost objects and treasure. Dowsing was also used to detect evil spirits and geopathic stress zones.


During the Renaissance, dowsing became increasingly popular in Europe. Dowsers were hired to find water for new towns and villages and to locate minerals for mining operations. Dowsing was also used by military commanders to find water for their troops.


In the 18th and 19th centuries, dowsing began to decline in popularity, due to the rise of science and technology. However, dowsing never completely disappeared, and it is still practiced by people all over the world today.


Dowsing has been called by many different names throughout history, including:

  • Divining

  • Water witching

  • Doodlebugging

  • Water finding

  • Dowsing rod

  • Witch hazel stick

  • Virgula divina (Latin for "divine rod")

  • Rhabdomancy (Greek for "rod divination")

  • Geomancy (Greek for "earth divination")


The term "dowsing" is thought to have originated in the English West Country in the 17th century, and is derived from the Old English word "dūsian", meaning "to strike" or "to knock". This may be a reference to the way that a dowsing rod is typically held and used.


There are many different theories about how dowsing works. Some people believe that dowsers are able to tap into a universal energy field, while others believe that they are simply more sensitive to the subtle energies that surround us all.


Whatever the explanation, dowsing is a powerful tool that can be used for a variety of purposes. It is also a relatively easy skill to learn, and anyone can do it.


To dowse, you simply hold your dowsing tool in your hand and ask a question. The tool will then move in a certain way, depending on the answer to your question. For example, if you are dowsing for water, the tool may swing back and forth when you are over a water vein.


The key to dowsing is to be clear and focused in your questions. You should also be aware of your own body language and biases, as these can influence the results of your dowsing.


Dowsing can be a very beneficial tool for both individuals and businesses. For individuals, dowsing can be used to improve health and well-being, to make better decisions, and to connect with their higher selves. For businesses, dowsing can be used to improve productivity, to find new opportunities, and to solve problems.


Here are a few tips for getting started with dowsing:

  • Choose a dowsing tool that feels comfortable in your hand. Some popular dowsing tools include pendulums, y-rods, and L-rods.

  • Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.

  • Relax and focus your mind.

  • Ask your question clearly and concisely.

  • Pay attention to the movements of your dowsing tool.

  • Practice regularly.


Using Dowsing in Therapy Sessions 

I use Emotional Dowsing Techniques (EDT) in my practice to help clients heal from emotional trauma, anxiety, depression, and other emotional challenges. It is a way to use dowsing to work with the subconscious mind. EDT can be used to identify and release negative emotions, limiting beliefs, and core wounds. It can also be used to balance the chakras and aura and to promote overall healing and well-being.
