Locating Practice Dowsing Targets


Published:

Once the dowser has chosen at least one tool in each class of instrumentation, (L-rods, Y-rods, pendulums, bobbers/other), it's time to get down to the busi-ness of dowsing, but it's best not to get overly excited. It's a rookie mistake to think that since you've been exposed to some dowsing basics and have a little training that you're now ready for the big leagues. Not quite.

Not that long ago a friend of mind wanted desperately to learn how to type, but she was never to it before, so I gave her a few pointers. She wrote back to me a week or so later telling me that she finally learned where all the keys were but still couldn't type as fast or as accurately as her co-workers. What could she do?

My written response: "Practick! Practick! Practick!"

I suppose it's a normal human trait when learning something new that our enthusiasm can far exceed our ability. We're eager to learn and impatient to succeed. We assume after learning a few fundamentals that we know enough, and then further assume that we're qualified to accomplish what other dowsers have done and are doing after years and years of experience.

In actuality, this is the time to take stock of where you are and realize that you've only taken a baby step in the learning process, and still have yet to experience any "real" dowsing at all. As has been said, "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing," and this is especially true when it comes to dowsing. Dowsers are do-ers, and experience isn't gained through reading books. It's time to gain some experience.

It's always recommended that the beginner not rush headlong into getting involved in their particular area of interest. Why? Because the overwhelming desire to get involved is an act of the ego. (Refer to the first column in this series). If you really want to get involved then your mind is no longer in balance. There's a fire burning inside that needs to be quenched in order to return the mind to its neutral state, otherwise your actions are like pushing on a door that says "pull."

Relax and allow. Remember? You do not make dowsing work. You must relax and allow dowsing to work through you. o do your best to temper your enthusiasm. Remember always that dowsing is unlike any other skill. If you try to make dowsing work then you're doing it incorrectly.

What can you practice on? Well, locating tangible targets is the best practice you can get. Why? So you can prove to yourself that your dowsing is successful. If you can't locate a simple tangible target, how can you be so certain you're locating an intangible one?

Water is the easiest tangible target for any dowser to find. Normally, the next question from the student is, "OK. But how can I prove to myself that I've found water without spending $10,000 to drill a well?"

Simple. Go out in your backyard or a nearby vacant lot and dowse for "an underground vein of year-round, fresh, flowing, water, no more than one foot deep," and use a shovel or hand trowel to dig it out! It doesn't have to be a gusher or even of sufficient volume to make a well. Just a tiny steady flow will do. Praktick!

Interested in treasure hunting? Chances are you already have a metal detector, so go to your favorite spot and dowse for "the nearest coin to where I'm standing now." Praktick!!

Interested in the healing arts? Get six or eight small baggies. Put some sugar in half of them and salt in the other half, shuffle them up and dowse for which is which. A quick wet-fingered dab taste will give you an instant result. Praktick!!!

Tangible targets — the best way to practick. I mean pracctik.

Well…you know what I mean.

Lastly, never worry about making a mistake, because it's not the mistake itself but the fear of making a mistake that's the biggest barrier to your progress. Approach each practice dowsing session with a neutral frame of mind. If an error does occur, consider why the error happened rather than chastising yourself for being less than perfect. After all, it is just practice.

An error is just a lesson that the universe has given you. That's all. It's not a spanking, just a lesson. Always keep in mind that no dowser is perfect — including the pro's — and as a newbie, mistakes are bound to be more plentiful. It's no biggee. It's just the way we learn.

In my early dowsing years I realized that accidents, coincidence, luck, chance or mistakes do not exist and that everything happens for a reason. That reason is for us to learn and improve by becoming more aware. A mistake is like getting a skinned knee. It hurts, but it's superficial and impermanent.
