Finger Dowsing – The Finger Link Method

Finger Dowsing: The Basics

Although having a pendulum or other tool always to hand is useful, there will be times when you need to dowse something when you don't have a tool. That's when you turn to deviceless dowsing.  This term simply means you don't use a tool such as a pendulum or rods. You just need to know how to use fingers, eyes, arms or whatever else you are comfortable with to get an answer. In this case, the type of deviceless dowsing we'll be talking about is finger dowsing.

There are several variations on finger dowsing. Amongst the various types, this finger link method is one of the more widely known. In all the variations there is a similarity. As a dowser, you are looking for a difference between a ‘yes' and a ‘no' response when you dowse. If you can't tell the difference with whatever tool (or in this case, whichever finger dowsing method) you use, then you have to change to something which will show that difference. The difference is usually in the strength or weakness of the response. In virtually all deviceless dowsing methods it is true to say that a strong response indicates a ‘yes' while a weak response indicates a ‘no'.

How that response is obtained will, of course, depend on which method you are using. The video below takes you through how you can tell the different responses in this particular type of finger dowsing.

It is a simple but effective method. We have seen it used by many different people in  a variety of situations; from working with animals to checking vitamins to…well, just about anything!

Watch this short video and you'll see for yourself just how quick and easy it can be.

    I have been successful getting yes/no with a pendulum, but with body/finger dowsing I have been struggling for long. I use same amount of pressure for yes and no, but failed to notice a difference even after spending a lot of time with many methods. Do you recommend using electronic hand held devices that are designed to help people who find it difficult to get a response?

    I read a few applied kinesiology books and surprised to see none of them have mentioned a procedure/ technique to learn these methods, while a couple of books suggest ‘fake it till you make it’ approach. Wont this be an issue in itself if we end up programming the subconscious this way?

      Very good questions. There is a reason you are able to use a pendulum and haven’t had luck with deviceless techniques. My first suggestion is try another deviceless technique. If you’ve tried and tried one finger dowsing method without success, try blink dowsing or the body sway. Most people can get results with the body sway. There are over 20 ways to dowse without a tool that we know of, and one is probably going to be easy for you. Search for ‘deviceless dowsing’ on this site and read the articles. If you signed up for our newsletter, you get access to three videos on deviceless dowsing. If you own our Discovering Dowsing course, the complete range of deviceless techniques is covered in the Basic Dowsing segment.

      What if you try them all and get no results? There are two things I would look into. First, getting a yes/no with a pendulum is not dowsing, in that anyone can do that and not be dowsing if they are not using proper dowsing technique. You can prove this to yourself by asking any question at all, and you will see you get a yes or no. However, the answers won’t be any better than guessing. You have to follow proper technique in order to dowse.

      Proper dowsing technique is not that hard, but you must master it. You need to make a good question. You must learn how to get into a dowsing state, the altered brain state required for dowsing, and you need to be detached about the answer. There are many articles on these subjects on the site, plus our course goes into detail.

      If you have mastered basic technique and get accurate answers with a pendulum, but can’t get any body dowsing method to work, you may have past life issues or beliefs that are stopping you, and they will need to be cleared. However, this is rare, and I prefer to think you just need to either master basic technique or find the right deviceless method for you. So try that first.

      As to electronic devices for getting a response, I have never heard of such a thing, and I would not want to add EMFs into the dowsing process. Dowsing is natural and doesn’t require a device at all. Don’t complicate it.

      I also don’t think faking it is a good idea. You are right. You need to build confidence by seeing that you CAN dowse. To me, that means learn basic technique and start practicing on simple things that matter. Our book “101 Amazing Things You Can Do With Dowsing” is free on all online channels and will give you lots to dowse about. It is natural to doubt your dowsing at first. Just keep doing it and you will start seeing more and more success if you follow our suggestions.
