Are You Dowsing the “Man in the Mirror”?

A Big Mistake

Most dowsers are taking the wrong tack. And they are not getting lasting results. The reason is simple: they aren't doing self-work.

We've done the same thing. It's like an addictive way of thinking. It's a viewpoint that will take all the power out of your dowsing and leave you doubting it's worthwhile.

The viewpoint that's poisoning your dowsing results is even being taught by some major gurus. They tell you how empowering dowsing is, then they show you how to use it to change the outer world: corrupt politicians, unpleasant neighbors, toxic water, noxious locations.

This is the wrong way to use dowsing. By wrong, I mean it won't work. You'll spend all your time trying to change your life by dowsing about what's ‘out there' and trying to change it. And the results won't last. It's like being on a treadmill.

The alternative is self-work

Instead, use dowsing to work on YOURSELF. Everything ‘out there' is merely a reflection of the inner you. Change yourself and you change the world.

Most people (including us) find this challenging. Change ourselves? Doesn't that mean we were ‘wrong' or ‘bad'? Change is scary! It's much easier to work on the outer world. But that doesn't change things for long. So it's a waste of time.

One quote says ‘be the change' you want to see. A popular song says ‘I'm looking at the man in the mirror…if you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself…and change'. As dowsers, we have the ability to do that. That doesn't mean it's easy or fast. But if you do the self-work, the work on yourself and your viewpoint, the outer world will change.

Dowsing and Empowerment. A Lie?

Dowsing Is Many Things…

One of the most common things you hear some people say is that dowsing and empowerment go together.

Empowerment is stepping into your power, becoming the powerful person you can be. And that leads to freedom from restrictions that prevent self-growth and fulfilling your  life's purpose. But does dowsing actually deliver on this grand promise of empowerment?

In other words, do dowsing and empowerment really deserve to go together?

While there are many different ways of looking at empowerment, the one I prefer most is that empowerment is the ability to think for yourself in new ways about anything.

That means no ideas go unchallenged, no preferences are assumed, no outcomes desired; only that you become more aware of yourself. That is empowering!

All of this sounds very grand and imposing, but, in reality, does it exist? Can it exist? The answer, for me anyway, is yes, I believe it can. And, further, I believe that we all have that ability and that dowsing can get us there.

Dowsing and empowerment: Too good to be true?


And it's a big ‘but', because although I firmly believe dowsing to be a wonderful tool for empowerment, too often it is merely another way of applying restrictions, of holding people back.

For example, when dowsing is taught, in most cases, the newcomers are shown how to hold a tool and told that they must ask questions which can be answered as ‘yes' or ‘no'. And then they get the rest of the indoctrination. You must ask permission, you should hold the tool this way, dowsing is for need not greed, follow this curriculum. Or things like face this direction, ask for help, don't let anyone else use your pendulum. Read what so-and-so tells you to do. Adopt this method. Don't do that.

On and on. The boundaries begin to grow and solidify until you fit the mold of an acceptable dowser. Like most education, it's just another indoctrination in dogma. You're taught rigid routines to put into place, and those routines become chains that keep you from growing.

No one is to blame for this. It's natural when teaching anything to present it as you would any subject in traditional education. Yet if you look at the real purpose of education as an institution, it isn't about teaching people to think for themselves. It's about teaching them to believe what you want them to believe, and to act as you would have them act in order to advance.

When dowsing is taught this way–and it's hard not to–you become indoctrinated to think a certain way about dowsing, not to question things.

That's not what dowsing and empowerment should be about!

But the beautiful part of dowsing, the center of it if you will, is its ability to draw you ever onward and inward on a unique personal journey for which there is no map. Everyone who has ever attended a dowsing class has already been dowsing, using their body, their mind, without ever knowing it. Giving it a name, helping them see it, makes it easier to use. Remember your excitement when you first learned dowsing? But for most people, they submit to the teacher and let the teacher tell them what to think about when dowsing.

If you are dowsing by rote and just following a procedure you've been taught, then, ok,  you are dowsing, and empowerment is still on the sidelines.

Dowsing has the greatest potential of anything I have ever come across to discover yourself. And becoming aware of yourself; how and why you react, what is affecting you, is precious indeed. As I said at the beginning, it is the truest freedom of all, to question everything and anything. Are you doing this when dowsing? Is dowsing changing how you perceive reality and the world around you?

When you question (not frivolously or just out of a desire for conflict), you become conscious. You look at things in new ways. This makes it easier to shed patterns and perceptions that are not working. It makes it easier for you to transform from a caterpillar into a butterfly. All the walls are broken down, and anything goes.

But, how dowsing is generally taught does not encourage this. Instead of liberating the dowser, more often than not, the dowser gradually becomes confined in a web of well-meaning advice and techniques and approaches.

I think it's time to break free! If dowsing is about freedom, and freedom is about liberating yourself, then the truest dowsing is not that which forces you to accept a certain world view or follow rigid routines. Instead, the truest dowsing is that which causes you to question yourself in any way that works, using any technique, any tool. The most empowering thing about dowsing is that you can be liberated from the limiting perceptions that have burdened you in the past.

If your ultimate goal is liberating yourself from fear and oppression, to be truly free, how can you fail with dowsing on your side? But you won't achieve that linkup of dowsing and empowerment by rote dowsing.

Give yourself permission to question everything. And keep finding better ways of dowsing.

Conference Call April 2013: Dowsing Personal Issues

Dowsing Personal Issues

Dowsing is a vital tool if you seek self-growth, and whether you know it or not, you do want to have positive change in your life. Dowsing personal issues is a hugely important way of using this skill so that you can begin to work towards the goals you have for your personal development.

In this mentoring call, we familiarize you with some common causes of ‘stuckness'. This is when you know you want to achieve something but, for whatever reason, you can't quite seem to make progress. And you really want to make progress! There could be all sorts of reasons, and we cover the basic ones which apply to most people. Then we get into dowsing personal issues and how you can use dowsing to get ‘unstuck' and begin to move on.

The one thing we all want to know is whether or not what we are planning is the right one. What if the method we are going to use on it will be the most effective?  Without dowsing, we are all just stumbling around in the dark, first applying this technique or that method before moving on to try something else. Most of the time we do not have a clue about knowing whether they will work or not. That costs you time, money and effort. It makes you lose faith.

That's why dowsing personal issues is a technique, or series of techniques, which can be of such value to you. Dowsing can point you right at the cause of your issue. It not only identifies the blocks, but it also identifies what will clear them and how long it will take.

Who could ask for more?

Listen to the recording here. It's only 22 minutes in length, but full of useful information:

How to Access Your Inner Guru for Real Self-Growth

Say Hello To Your Inner Guru!

Do you wish you could find the perfect method for helping you reach your self-growth goals? Have you tried everything you can think of, only to be disappointed? Are you beginning to feel that maybe there isn't a method that will work for you? What about using your inner guru? Read on to find out how.

Don't give up yet! Like you, we spent many years trying all kinds of techniques for getting unstuck. And we got disappointed more often than not. We spent lots of money and time learning how to do complex techniques, but they didn't work on everything. Then we found the one method that does it all—dowsing.

Dowsing is an ancient skill. Often wrongly classified as a psychic talent, dowsing is simply the natural ability to get answers to questions. Dowsing isn't just about finding water. Dowsing can help you:

  • Find your life partner
  • Find the perfect house to buy or place to live
  • Choose the best career
  • Find lost objects
  • Discover why you can't lose weight or quit smoking
  • Talk to your guides or angels
  • Communicate with your pets

Actually, the list is endless. Dowsing can answer any question you can think of. And it's easy to learn.

Try it Yourself Right Now!

Although a pendulum is the most popular dowsing tool, we like to teach people to dowse without a tool when they are first learning how to dowse. Here's a simple technique you can do yourself:

It's called the Body Sway, and you use your body to get a yes or no answer. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Relax and cultivate a curious attitude. Put your mind on hold. Now make the statement out loud or silently, “I was born in _______________. (city/state/country)” Fill in the blank with your birthplace. When you make the statement, allow your body to move however it wants. Usually the body will sway forward for ‘yes' and backwards for ‘no'. Which way did you go? Probably forward.

Now make the statement again, but substitute a place you were NOT born in. See what your body does. For most people, this false statement will cause the body to sway backwards. Most people are able to get accurate answers the first try.

Any question that can be put into a yes/no format can be dowsed. And you can get an accurate answer.

You might ask if dowsing is so great, why isn't everyone doing it? The answer is that most people don't take the time to learn to dowse accurately. They learn how to get a yes or no, and that's all.

It's easy to learn to get an answer to your questions using dowsing. To get consistently accurate answers, you need to learn:

Fortunately, anyone can learn to do these things. And once you become an accurate dowser, you are no longer powerless. You can take control of your life and make choices that are guaranteed to give you happy outcomes.

Bring Out Your Own Inner Guru for REAL Self-Growth

Dowsing is the best skill you will ever practice. It's like having an Inner Guru who knows all the right answers. Best of all, it's free!

Beyond the day-to-day challenge of making the right choices and finding the right answers, dowsing is a key to your subconscious mind. As you may know, the subconscious mind is the source of all your blocks to success. And by definition, you can't know what the subconscious is thinking by using your conscious mind. That's why personal growth is so frustrating at times.

The easiest way we have ever found of accessing the subconscious is through dowsing. You can use dowsing to find out the cause of any block you have. And that's where all your blocks reside. Have you ever wished you could:

  • Lose weight and keep it off?
  • Quit procrastinating?
  • Stop sabotaging relationships?
  • Save more money?
  • Get fit?
  • Get rid of allergies or other health issues?

There is a subconscious reason for any negative pattern in your life. And dowsing is the easiest way to discover the cause of your problem. Dowsing can even be used to find the way to clear that block. We have used dowsing to help ourselves and our clients with just about any personal growth issue you can think of. We even use dowsing to help animals!

Whatever your self-growth goal, dowsing is the key to success. So take the time to learn about dowsing and to become an accurate dowser so that you can create the life you want.
