Preparing and Practicing the Dowsing Mindset


Published:

The first column in this series was a general overview for people who have just discovered dowsing and decided to take a further look, highlighting the importance of subduing the ego and starting at the beginning.

Column two discussed the dowsing state of mind and its uniqueness from that of other skills. Simple exercises were mentioned to help achieve the dowsing state of mind.

"Why," you might ask, "does the ego need to be subdued and why do I have to be relaxed to dowse?"

Before we begin most tasks we mentally prepare ourselves by developing a mindset. Whether it’s washing the dishes, cleaning the garage, going for a walk, or standing in the batter’s box waiting for the next pitch, we place ourselves in a state of mind commensurate with the task at hand. The mindset, normally, is one of determination to begin and complete the task, or at least do the best we can.

For a dowser to communicate in the realm of the unknown they must first be capable of entering into the conversation. This is why the ego must be subdued, the mind relaxed, and a sense of respect, humility, and selflessness allowed to enter our being.

The proper dowsing state of mind is one of relaxed awareness, openness, and an attitude of acceptance to whatever answers we may receive. Before we begin a dowsing search the mindset we must achieve is ego-less, relaxed and allowing, with the ability to maintain that state of mind throughout the entire dowsing routine.

In 1982, Dr. Edith Jurka conducted a study measuring the brain wave levels of seven gifted dowsers (ASD Digest, Vol 23, #1). She stated that the dowsing state of mind is a "search pattern." The seven dowsers, (presumably representative of experienced dowsers), exhibited the "5th State pattern" of well known yogis, plus a wide delta (search) pattern unique to dowsers in their normal awake states of consciousness. She concluded, "..it appears that the essence of this 5th State is familiarity in communication with the Universal Intelligence, and a constant realization of its presence and availability in a very practical way."

To develop the dowsing state of mind is similar to the development of a muscle, in that the more you use it repetitively the stronger it gets. Research has already shown that certain parts of the human brain allow us to perform certain functions, therefore, practicing to clear and relax the mind daily is an excellent way to develop and prepare that part of the brain/mind for the actual dowsing search.

The answer to any question we have is already known. Dowsing is the search for answers to our questions and can be accomplished by anyone who truly desires to learn, practice, and employ the proper techniques. Once the brain/mind is quieted and open, the process is ready to begin. The dowser is now prepared to enter into the realm of the unknown with a humble confidence and an evenly balanced ego. Learn to relax, learn to allow, learn to set your mind free of all outside influences.

From this point, all the dowser needs to do is to ask the proper questions (which will be discussed in a future column). The exact depth to the top of the water vein, the depth of the water at that point, the flow rate, temperature, and even contaminants are already a known quantity. The distance and direction to missing car keys, the air pressure in the left front tire, or the aisle where dried peas can be found likewise is already known, but in order to find the answer we first need to enter into the proper dowsing state of mind and only then begin the dowsing procedure.
