Map dowsing is one of the ways in which dowsing can be used.
With map dowsing, you can search for or locate objects on the far side of the globe without leaving the comfort of your own armchair. It’s a surprisingly effective technique of dowsing.
Don’t get stuck on what a map has to be. A map can be of pretty much anything at all. So, you can use printed maps, like the sort you use to hike with, or larger scale maps such as road atlases, or even hand drawn maps of your house and yard.
It all depends on what you are looking for and what sort of scale works best for you.
Often, map dowsing is just the first step to reduce a possible area down to more manageable proportions. After zooming in on a location, it might be necessary to then actually visit the place on foot to refine the exact spot.
To dowse over a map, you can use one of two main methods, depending on the circumstances, and what you’re looking for.
For both methods, in fact, for all dowsing you do, you have to be focused clearly on the question as you work. That might take a little practice at first, but keeping focus, keeping your emotions out of it, are both vital things for success.
How to Map Dowse: Two Methods
The first method is the straight-edge method.
Here you use a straight-edge and move it slowly up one side of the map all the while keeping the target clearly in mind. Once you have a response, you then draw a line from the edge of the map extending across. A response is when your dowsing tool (or whatever deviceless dowsing technique you are using) shows a ‘yes’ in answer to the question. In this case, the question is about the location of the target on the map. After you’ve drawn the line, all you know right now is that the object of your search is somewhere along that line.
Use the exact same technique on the next edge of the map and do the same. Where the lines cross should be where the object is. You can, of course, do this for each of the four edges of the map if you wish.
The second method is the quadrant method.
Here you are simply dividing the map into smaller and smaller segments until you have located the right area. To do this, divide the map into 4 parts. Dowse which one of the four the target is in. Take that quadrant and subdivide it into 4 more parts. Dowse which one of those it is in and continue subdividing and dowsing until you have a narrow enough area to search.
Map dowsing can be very useful. You can use it for a wide range of possible targets. For example, dowsers have used maps to locate oil and water wells. They have also used them to locate missing persons and pets as well as looking for buried or lost treasure or for locating areas of archeological interest. More mundane uses of map dowsing include finding your lost keys in the house or which area of the park you lost your glove in.
Map dowsing can be immensely useful, but you do need to practice, and not all targets are equally easily accessible. Some people and pets don’t want to be found, and some treasure has been very well hidden. But, other than that, go ahead and experiment with map dowsing for yourself.
