The Dangers Of Using Dowsing Rods

The Dangers Of Using Dowsing Rods

How can dowsing rods be dangerous? It depends on your point of view.

For some dowsing skeptics, especially those who are deeply religious and who maintain that dowsing is something which has diabolical connections, the use of dowsing rods then becomes something which threatens the very soul of the dowser. The reasoning being that holding them and dowsing with them is to allow the Devil to work through you.

Now, that’s an extreme view but it is held by many such people. But, for them, it is a real and present danger. Of course, none of them would have actually tried to dowse so their opposition to the use of this skill is based only on their interpretation of the Bible or their own personal attitudes.

Admittedly, in the history of dowsing, there have been many religious people who have said the same thing about dowsing; that it must have some diabolical aspect to it, but there have been an equally large number of religious people who have used dowsing for themselves without any concerns for their personal salvation.

Therefore, this view of the dangers of dowsing has no real weight to it at all, based as it is on personal inclinations only.

As for other types of dangers in using dowsing rods, there are perhaps one or two possible things to bear in mind. If you have fairly solid rods, such as those made of steel, then there is a very slight risk that you could cause yourself an injury if you weren’t careful how you carried them or how you used them.

Personally, I tend to wander around with one rod stuck down the inside of my boot ready to stick it into the ground as a marker. If I carried either or both of them in my pockets – tricky but doable – then, if I tripped over, I suppose I could stab myself.

But, the good news is, I haven’t ever heard of any dowser who has been injured in such a way, so I suppose it’s not much of a danger at all.

The only other thing I can think of which might be thought of as a danger would be if you waved your arms around while holding a rod as you might put someone’s eye out. But, again, I’ve never heard of such a thing.

In which case, the only danger appears to be whether or not you consider that when using such rods you are putting your soul at risk. If you think that, then you’re not likely to dowse anyway. You have to go with what your conscience guides you to do. For me, that means I use dowsing whenever and wherever I can in perfect safety.

Lightworkers are in Danger

Here's Why

Dowsers shouldn't call themselves “Lightworkers”. Not if they want to be safe.

I just used a word I rarely use–‘should'. But I did it on purpose. I want to get your attention.

Don't get me wrong. I'm a Karuna™ Reiki Master Teacher. It's common for healers and energy workers to call themselves “Lightworkers”. So what's wrong with that?

Nothing. Unless you like being safe. If you are a crusader and see yourself as someone fighting the forces of Darkness, then that is what you get. You get the forces of Darkness to fight.

There's also an aspect of snobbery here which shouldn't be overlooked.

In a dualistic world, it is tough not to think this way. Lightworkers often find that it's hard to accept that darkness has just as valuable a place here as light. But it's true. You cannot have one without the other. And the harder you try to eradicate one, the stronger it gets. Why? Because the balance overall remains the same. Think of the symbol of yin and yang. Equal amounts of white and black. To keep the symbol intact, if you make the white bigger, you have to also make the black bigger.

Or think about it this way. What do Superman and Batman have in common? Superpowers used for good. And what do they attract? Super Villains with nasty superpowers they use for evil. This is not a coincidence. It's how the world works.

I wish I had a dollar for every dowser and Lightworker I've met who experience the “Superman” syndrome after they commit to using their gifts for ‘good'. I'm not saying it's wrong to commit to sharing your gift. But if you haven't done enough self-work; if you still have a judgmental attitude about right and wrong, you're in for quite a bumpy ride. If you saddle up as a Lightworker, prepare to meet the forces of Darkness.

Lightworkers attract the opposite

That which you fight grows stronger. You are giving your power to it by judging and fighting it.  What you resist, persists. We've all heard the sayings that remind us of this, but do we always apply them? Sadly, no.

I've known prominent professional dowsers and healers who find themselves spending hours a day clearing entities and negative influences and energies. Sometimes it all spins out of control or affects health seriously. But this situation can be avoided.

Don't put out a neon sign saying you're a crusader. Don't be a crusader. That's often how lightworkers see themselves. Just share your gift in a nonjudgmental way. Know that you are making a difference, but be aware when you are judging or labeling people or situations as ‘good' or ‘bad', ‘light' or ‘dark'. That judgment can attract powerful negative energies.

If you find yourself beset by nasty energies, don't be scared or upset. It's teaching you about the reality you are creating. It's teaching you about protection. It's just an opportunity to learn to be detached and nonjudgmental. To see the whole world as perfect, even if it isn't to your liking. It's a HUGE lesson, but it can transform your life and make you a lot more like the Dalai Lama. And he seems to be a totally cool person.
