Learning to dowse changed my life.

As a favor to my mother, I agreed to accompany her to the American Society of Dowsers Annual Convention.  She had gone the year before with my aunt, and was excited to share this experience with me, as well as to spend a week with family in Vermont.  I had no idea what I was in for when I arrived for the pre-convention dowsing school, but I was ready for anything.  I had recently quit my job after realizing I couldn’t put the “happy face” on every morning and serve people eggs anymore, and was desperately seeking direction.  I knew I was meant to do more with my life than mindlessly bumble through, but the options were overwhelming.  This seemed like a perfect opportunity to escape the city, clear my head, and begin to figure out what I wanted.

The participants at the workshop ran the gamut, from old New Englanders who had been water witching for years, to young children, to people like me, who had an interest, but needed guidance.  A sense of empowerment started to flow through the two-dozen or so of us as we began to locate underground streams, the doors in trees, and each others energy fields.  One of the teachers there was Marty Cain, an amazing woman who told us you can dowse anything: locating your reading glasses, measuring how much to water the plants in your garden, making sure a car you’re about to buy doesn’t have any hidden problems, learning if there is water on the moon – you can do it all, and everyone has the ability.  Whether by a wooden Y-rod, bobber, metal L-rods, pendulum, or your own body; it’s not the tool that dowses, but you.  It’s the ability to tap into your intuition, that little voice we all possess (and sometimes ignore) that knows better, and can connect us to the higher conscious.  Now, before this starts to sound too airy-fairy, let me cover some basics:

Everything is conscious: humans, animals, plants, water, even stones.  We are all beings of energy living in a sea of energy, interconnected and able to change the subtle energies around us with every thought, action, and emotion.  Ever wonder why some people just can’t catch a break, while other seem to have all the luck?  Every negative thought and feeling puts forth detrimental energy into our environment, surrounding and filling us with fear, anger, and resentment, which can hold us back and make us physically sick.  By the same token, positivity promotes beneficial energies that bring us joy, abundance, healing, and success in all we endeavor to accomplish.  The more we understand these energies and their effects, the more we are able to take charge of the process.  Dowsing is a potent tool to explore the subtle energies and our connection to them, allowing us to take more control over our lives.

I received many gifts from this experience, the two most important being intuition and intention.  I learned that we all have the ability to dowse, because we are all part of the energetic web that connects us to everything around us, past, present, and future.  Our intuition is the key that can unlock the secrets of the universe, if only we trust it and learn to develop it.  Once we open the door to the higher conscious, we can stop being passive spectators and victims of circumstance.  By learning to actively engage the world around us, we can empower ourselves to break old patterns that may have hindered us, and shape our fortunes for the higher good of ourselves, our loved ones, and the universe as a whole.
