But It Takes Practice
If expert water dowsers are usually at least 90% accurate, does that mean all dowsers are 90% accurate? No. Dowsing is a skill, not a psychic ability. Any skill requires that you learn technique and practice. It is most helpful to have a coach to guide you. Olympic athletes and musicians who perform in major orchestras became experts through mentoring and practice.
Sadly, the perception of dowsing as psychic ability has caused many newbies to expect they can get 90% or better accuracy from the get go. This is a false assumption, and when those newbies see they are wrong, they usually assume they have no talent, or that dowsing is a scam, and they quit dowsing. This is very unfortunate.
Another contributing factor to this misconception is the way most people (who are usually not expert dowsers) teach dowsing. They focus on teaching you to get a “yes” or “no” with your tool. Sometimes they spend a very few minutes saying it's important to ask a good dowsing question. Then they turn you loose. You get no mentoring. You have no one to support you in your growth. It's like showing someone the keys on a piano and teaching them chopsticks and then expecting them to play “Moonlight Sonata” right away. It won't happen.
To become masterful at any skill requires lots of training and practice, and mentoring is a huge help. Just saying this will turn off many people, because they'd like masterful dowsing ability to be as easy as flipping a switch. You are smart enough to know that doesn't happen in the real world. Dowsing has the ability to change your life in amazing ways IF YOU LEARN TO DO IT WELL. That's an honest promise, one you can take to the bank.
If you are an accurate dowser, you can use dowsing in so many ways, your head will spin. But there is no instant way to confer accuracy on any new dowser. You have to learn the skill.
We highly recommend our Discovering Dowsing course to help you master proper dowsing technique and become an accurate dowser. See details here.
