Finger-Thumb Dowsing

Finger-Thumb Dowsing Is So Easy!

Deviceless dowsing comes in so many forms. We know of about 20 different ways of dowsing without using any tools at all. Finger-thumb dowsing is probably the most common way of dowsing just using your own hand and fingers.

Sometimes it is called the finger rub method. It doesn't really matter which term you use, because it is such an easy way of dowsing. Like most of the deviceless dowsing methods it is very simple to learn and easy to perform in virtually any circumstance.

All you need is to develop confidence in what you do.

Would anyone ever know you were doing some dowsing if they saw you rubbing your index finger and your thumb together? Of course not! It is a very unobtrusive method indeed. Finger-thumb dowsing can be carried out virtually anywhere under any circumstances.

Again, the only thing which is important for you, the dowser, to know is that there is a consistent and dependable difference between your ‘yes' and your ‘no' response. That's where practice and confidence play their part. That can be acquired by regularly dowsing; making it something you do every day in one way or another.

Obviously, finger-thumb dowsing won't work if your hands are oily for whatever reason. So, if you have just washed your hands with soap, or exposed the fingertips to another source of oil, you should not try to use this deviceless method. The chances are it will not work at all and you'll end up frustrated.

Apart from that brief proviso, check out the brief video below which takes you through this popular method of dowsing without using a pendulum or any other tool.

Finger-thumb dowsing is just one way of dowsing without tools, but is quick and easy to learn. Is this what you use? Let us know in the comments section below

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.

Blink Dowsing

Blink Dowsing (aka Stealth Dowsing!)

There are many methods of dowsing without using the ‘usual' tools such as pendulum, or l-rod. These ‘deviceless' methods of dowsing are very quick and, when mastered, very subtle. Blink dowsing is probably the most subtle of all.

When we explain to people that blink dowsing is a way of dowsing with your eyelids, people don't believe us. But it's true!  It's called ‘blink dowsing' because the blinks you get from your eyelids are your answers.

It's just one of the many ways which you can dowse without using any of the ‘traditional' tools at all. And, once you get the hang of it, it's about the slickest, quickest, easiest and most inconspicuous methods of dowsing you could possible use.

We began to use it when we were working with clients on the phone. We were using a dowsing tool (usually a pendulum) as well as trying to make notes with a pen. And that was before we had headsets and had to hold the phone to our ear as well. Crazy!

We realized that either we needed an extra arm, maybe two, or we needed to do something differently. As we couldn't grow more appendages, we went with the second option and that how we started to use blink dowsing. We could talk on the phone, write notes and dowse without any bother at all.

So, although blink dowsing might sound strange at first, the video below will take you through how to do this for yourself. We're pretty sure it will become your favorite method for dowsing.

Does blink dowsing work for you, or do you have problems? What is your ‘yes' and ‘no'? Is it the same as mine in the video or something different? Share what happens to you in the comments section below

Blind Dowsing Tips

What Is Blind Dowsing?

Blind dowsing is an excellent way of removing yourself from the answer. It teaches you emotional distance, which is very important.

Blind dowsing is when you don’t know what the question is or you don’t know which answer you’ve chosen until later.

Hiding the Question:

Use this type of blind dowsing when you want confirmation from a friend or when you know you are too emotionally involved to dowse accurately.

In this, you simply hold the question (or problem) as clearly as possible in your head as you ask another dowser to get the answer to it. Note: This technique is more accurate if you ask a clear, specific, well-worded question.

Hiding the Question Exercise

With a partner, take turns in blind dowsing the other person’s question. For the person asking the question, do not tell your partner what the question is. Simply have it as clearly in your mind as possible.

Suggestions for the person doing the dowsing: Wait until your partner is ready, then calm your mind. You can ask a question such as, ‘Is the question held clearly enough for me to answer it?’ If so, then dowse whether the answer is either ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

Hiding the Answer:

Use this version of blind dowsing when on your own and you know that you will be too emotionally involved, for example, to dowse accurately yourself.

Hiding the Answer Exercise

Normally, you would have different  numbers of ‘yes’ and ‘no’ on scraps of paper which you will have rolled into balls and scattered or shuffled, or you can use cards with the answers on, face down. Here you will be choosing between 4 cards (2 ‘Yes’ and 2 ‘No”) for your answers.

Dowse the following questions, using ONLY the cards with the hidden answers. Only dowse one question before finding out the answer. This will allow us to shuffle cards before your next question. (When using this system on your own, ALWAYS shuffle between questions.)

A    On a scale of -10 to +10, would it be a +8 or better for me to have dental work done on me in the near future?

B    On a scale of -10 to +10, does my present regime of vitamins and supplements dowse as +8 or better for me nutritionally for me at this time?

Have you tried blind dowsing using either of these methods? If so, what was the result? Did it work for you? Let us know in the comments section below.

3 Favorite Deviceless Dowsing Techniques

Deviceless Dowsing?

There are many deviceless dowsing techniques. If this subject interests you, then you will want to take a dowsing course that covers it. In this article are 3 favorite methods of dowsing without a tool. They are easy to learn, and they are wonderful to use in public, as no one can tell you are dowsing.

Deviceless dowsing uses your body to get a yes or no response. Most people find that certain methods of deviceless dowsing work better for them than others do. These three methods are sure to offer you at least one that you are able to get a good response with. Don't be discouraged if all of them don't work equally well. Pick the one you like best and begin dowsing with it. Later on, you might want to try another method.

Method #1: The Body Sway

The body sway is one of the most reliable and easiest deviceless techniques. Because it involves the whole body, it is also less subject to false answers. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Relax. Have your back straight, but be comfortable. Closing your eyes will enhance the response.

Start by asking your polarity question, which you already know the answer to. Be sure to just be curious about what your body will do. I was born in Washington, DC, so I would ask, “Was I born in Washington, DC in this life?” When you ask the question, you can say it out loud or silently in your head.

Usually, being pulled forward is yes, true and healthy for you. Being pushed back is usually no, false and unhealthy for you. So I would drift forward when I asked my polarity question.

If you went backwards, your polarity may be flipped. Read the post on Pitfalls in Dowsing and fix it before doing any more dowsing.

Next, ask a question about a place you were not born. For me, I could ask, “Was I born in Paris, France in this life?” That will give me the opposite response and establish my ‘no'.

Sometimes people get a response that is not a forward or backward, but instead is to one side or the other. It may be that if you get an unusual response, you are being asked to rephrase the question, ask another question, or being told the question is inappropriate. With practice, you will be able to interpret other motions.

We have found that at first, people sometimes only have a slight response. That's OK. Any response is good. With practice, you will maybe find that your really strong yes answers pull you forward faster and harder than weak yes answers.

This method is reliable and easy for most people to use.

Method #2: Blink Dowsing

This is a personal favorite of both Nigel and me. We began to use this a lot when working on the phone with clients, because we needed our hands free. We liked it so much, that we rarely use a tool anymore. This is the most unobtrusive deviceless technique, but not everyone finds it easy to do.

Soft focus your eyes and look at a blank area of the wall. Relax. Think or say your polarity question, the one about your birthplace. Notice if your eyelids blink or not. Maybe they blink twice. If you are not sure that the blink was a dowsing response, ask the question again. Whatever your eyelids did was your ‘yes' response. I get a single blink for ‘yes'.

Then ask a question putting in a place you were not born. This will establish your ‘no' response. I get no blinks for ‘no'.'

The important thing is that you have a clear difference between ‘yes' and ‘no'. Once you establish which is which, you can begin to dowse.

With blink dowsing, sometimes just a strong feeling of needing to blink is a ‘yes'. Also, you are continually blinking, so if you are uncertain if your blink was just a blink, ask your dowsing question again.

Method #3: Finger Rub

Believe it or not, the ridges on your fingers will change when you are dowsing. Usually, a ‘yes' response will make the ridges more prominent, while a ‘no' response will make them smoother. So you can use this to advantage when dowsing in a number of ways.

Rub your index finger and thumb together gently to establish a baseline. Notice how smooth or rough the skin feels. Recently washing your hands or putting a skin cream on may make this type of dowsing a bit harder.

Now ask your polarity question about your birthplace. Notice any difference in how rough or smooth the skin feels when rubbing the fingers together.

Next, put the wrong location in your polarity question and notice the difference. Usually, a false location will give a smoother feel, while a true location will feel rough or sticky.

This method can be used in a number of other ways as well. You can just gently rub your index finger on your jeans or a table top if you wish.

Deviceless dowsing is easy to do anywhere. It is unobtrusive. It requires no tools. You can begin to dowse immediately. One of these methods should work for you. Happy Dowsing!
