What Is Dowsing?
If you take a moment to think about it, dowsing is simple. I mean really simple! You ask questions and you get answers.
What could be simpler than that?
Except you should never equate simple with easy.
Just because something is simple does not mean it is easy. For example, think of something like rock climbing. It's really very simple. You make sure that you have three points of contact at all times and you keep going up until you've reached the top. That sounds simple enough, doesn't it?
But easy? Far from it!
Dowsing is Simple. But Easy?
And that's just how it is with dowsing. The concept of dowsing is simple to explain to anyone. But, when you start to dowse, you realize that there all sorts of things which need to be going on, behind the scenes as it were, in order for it to work. And, by ‘work', I mean , work well and consistently, not just have hiccups of success.
In rock climbing, you need to have strength, stamina and flexibility (not to mention a head for heights, which disqualifies me), as well as appropriate equipment and fellow climbers for help and encouragement. After all, you don't want to keep falling off, do you?
In dowsing, there's the mental attitude, the question itself, the ability to listen to or receive the answer, the environment you're dowsing in, to name just a few of the most obvious ones. There are plenty of other issues as well!
That recognition, that something can be simple, but not easy, is something which crops up time and again in life. And because it crops up, the difference tends to get blurry.
After all, how simple is it to lose weight? Just eat less, right? Simple? Yes! Easy? Heck no!
And I think it might be that very problem, the ‘simple but not easy' problem, which lures a lot of people into dowsing but then leaves them high and dry. Because, what do you do, where do you go, after you've found out you can get an answer from your tool?
Not enough people recognize the trap of simple but not easy.
