You can dowse!

Dowsing is the art of quieting the mind and turning inward to deliberately seek very specific information, which while not known consciously is nonetheless available in the vast sea of consciousness in which all information is already known and everyone is connected. 

Sometimes called water witching, rhabdomancy or radiesthesia, it is an natural form of divination to which everyone can learn to develop. The body reacts to the answers of questions asked with subtle body sensations or movements, which are clearer when using tools such as L or Y rods, bobber or pendulum.

Your body already senses and knows things unconsciously 

Perhaps you remember a time when you had strong gut feelings that correctly warned you of potential danger, or encouraged you to take action and proceed. Perhaps you have been somewhere that had strong good or bad vibes without knowing the history or the people of that place. Maybe you walked into a room and felt immediately uncomfortable although you were completely unaware that an argument had just taken place or that the occupants hated one another. 

I remember visiting the home of Jiddu Krishnamurti, an Indian philosopher and writer, in Ojai, California. Now while I was aware that he practiced meditation and wrote books, I knew very little about him. And while I am by nature a serious person, I could not help smiling broadly throughout the site. The house and grounds exuded enormous joy. 

My point is that your body has been sensing things right along, and that inborn ability with training and practice can give you good information upon demand with or without a tool such as an L or Y rod, bobber, pendulum or forked stick. 

Body Dowsing – the Sway Test

The body itself can be used as a dowsing tool. Here’s how.

First drink some water as dowsing works best when you are hydrated. Stand up and separate your feet comfortably apart. Hold an intention of your body moving in a particular direction when the answer to a question that you ask is ‘yes’. Close your eyes. Without being rigid and stiff, but without deliberately moving either, allow your body to show you it’s ‘yes’ response. Internally say “show me ‘yes’ “. Keep repeating until your body moves and note the direction. Then ask your body to indicate the direction for ‘no’. “Show me ‘no’ “ Unless their polarity is reversed, ‘yes’ for most people is indicated by leaning forward, and ‘no’ by leaning backwards. It may be subtle. Practice until it is a clear response.

When you have a distinct direction for each response, then ask simple questions to which you know the ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer. For example, “my name is ___ .” “I live at ____.” From there you can go on to simple other things for which you can verify after dowsing. For example, “how many quarters are in my wallet?” Then ask “how many nickels? “How many dimes?

dowsing cover frontNext, sign up for a dowsing class, read books on it, and look into dowsing chapters or meet-up groups. If you are in the greater Charlottesville, Virginia area, I run a free monthly dowsing group, Central Virginia Dowsers. I have written an entire pendulum dowsing course book, Therapeutic Dowsing and Telepathic Healing. Also, I run two free teleconferences per month through the American Society of Dowsers, and speak at their annual conference as well at other dowsing events.

 

Uses of Dowsing

While dowsing is an ancient practice to find water, oil, ore or minerals such as gold, it can also be applied to health, agriculture, business, relationships, forensics, military, and problem solving of all kinds. It can be used to find missing persons, pets, objects, unexploded bombs, unmarked graves, the best location for a home or office, an effective marketing or business strategy, and the best use of your time, energy and resources. It can be used to develop a comprehensive self-care program. It can locate the root cause of issues or problems and determine the best way to address them. However, like everything else, it requires training and practice to do skillfully. But the benefits are well worth the investment.

October 14 Meeting: ““Dowsing for Missing Objects” with Ginette Matacia Lucas

At about age 7, Ginette Matacia Lucas learned dowsing from her father, Louis Matacia, well known as having taught dowsing to the military and government officials. On a particular day in 1967, Louis was teaching staff members of the US Marine Corps from the Pentagon in his northern Virginia backyard.  General McMasters, his staff, and Marines could not comprehend the process of dowsing until Louis’ two children, Tom and Ginette, came out to show the soldiers that even kids can utilize the “L” rods to dowse for water.

Ginette in later years became a professional dowser and psychic.  She is noted for locating missing persons, such as Chandra Levy in Washington, DC for the FBI and DC Police, Caylee Anthony in Florida, Elaine Piersen in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and more than 20 others.  She has been interviewed on various TV shows now Youtube like CNN, Nancy Grace, NBC, Fox, etc., on missing persons. Some of her favorite work is on locating missing objects and mysteries.

Ginette works with Psychic Angela Ford, a former Gov. Psychic / Analyst, and Peter Marks an Astrologer, as a team member on her varying projects like Treasure Hunting, Archeological Digs, and missing, etc.  Recently, Ginette was written about in the Huffington Post, Feb. 2018, and a couple of authors, interviewed her for their books on the subject of her near death experiences, and working for the Government. She can be heard on Youtube about various work, along with fun radio shows, i.e., Iheart radio Heidi Hollis of the show “Downunder”, or Gary “Tombstone”Anderson’s radio show. Ginette is presently working on a radio development and program with Iheart radio.

Additionally, Ginette has been written about in the Smithsonian Mag., 1996, by author Jack Hope, about locating 2 missing objects, The Blue Sense, by Dr. Marcello Truzzi (Psychics and Crime), the Washington Post, the California Sun which is an insert to the Los Angeles Times (about a homicide and missing person case).  Her class on missing objects is also being given in DC, for the DC Metro Nov. 4, 2018.

This is the presentation that Roxanne gave at both the American Society of Dowsers Conference in June at SUNY, New Paltz, NY, and at UC Santa Cruz, CA in July. 

Experience hypnosis with multiple suggestions for successful dowsing. Tap into the unconscious and enhance your ability to access higher wisdom and universal mind. Learn to quickly go in and out of hypnosis for centering, clarifying your dowsing intention, and increasing your focus. Have an anchor installed that triggers the right dowsing state of mind every time you pick up your dowsing tools. Enlarge your belief in yourself and your ability to learn and improve upon your dowsing skills.

  • December 11, TBA.  

Tuesday, September 11 at 8 PM Eastern “Dowsing Through Your Fears” 

Because this is the anniversary of the attack on the Twin Towers, the topic this month is “Dowsing Through Your Fears”. Alan Handelsman will join Roxanne Louise on the call.
Alan Handelsman, dowser, hypnotherapist, and comedian, was a professional musician (flute) for 30 years. Alan asks “What if there are no negative emotions? What if the very emotions you are fighting contain the power you need to improve your life?” He also adds “We learn the habit of fear as we learn the skill of riding a bicycle. The difference is that we only ride a bike when we choose to, while the habit of fear becomes automatic. Even after the danger is over, the fear lingers. This fear can be released, so that new dangers don’t engender old fears.”
Besides being a presenter, Alan regularly provides comic relief for Fun Night at the West Coast Dowsers Conference. His website is www.sourcehypnosis.com. He is based in Scottsdale, Arizona, and can be reached at 602-478-8346.
Roxanne Louise, dowser, ASD Board Member, hypnotherapist, and former classical singer, was in Newark, NJ right on the Hudson River on 9/11, directly across from Lower Manhattan within eyesight of the Towers. While Roxanne did not actually see the buildings fall because of being on the opposite side of the building, her car was covered in the ash debris. One of her clients got killed, another was let go the Friday before along with his department of 40. All those not severed from the company because of a buyout were dead on Tuesday as it was the very floor that a plane hit. This is a vivid illustration that what seems like a terrible thing to happen (such as losing your job), can be a blessing in disguise. Her bio is at the end.

On Being Acknowledged

20180616_awardASD:me

Educator of the Year Award

At the June, 2018 American Society of Dowsers Convention held in New Paltz, New York, I was honored with the Educator of the Year Award.

20180621_ASDaward

This is not the first time I have been given a National Award. I have five from hypnosis organizations (the list is here). And while I regularly teach at national and regional dowsing conferences, run Central Virginia Dowsers, monthly Dowsing Support Teleconference Calls, and have written 9 books and over 118 articles on hypnosis, dowsing, self help, mind-body healing, etc, NONETHELESS it means a great deal to be recognized, not just for me, but for anyone.

The importance of recognition

Being seen, heard, appreciated, publicly acknowledged for whatever contribution we make in life is one of the best gifts we can receive and give to another. Many people go through life feeling invisible, and that their work, loyalty, dependability, kindness and consideration, their going the ‘extra mile’ are taken for granted. That is devastating to the human spirit, causing resentment, bitterness, anger or great sadness. Worse, it causes people to sometimes give up instead of continuing to do their work. The world suffers then as a result.

It doesn’t matter if that work is Mom reliably making your meals, washing your clothes, getting you to school on time. Or it is someone that opens the store every day on time, comes and feeds your animals so you can go away, takes you to the airport, does favors large or small, or fills in the countless gaps where we need and count upon others to help us. Everyone needs to be acknowledged for what they do.

How wonderful if we each could notice and thank others – not just with a superfluous ‘thank you’, but by gripping of the person’s hands, looking them in the eyes, and really conveying genuine appreciation. Let them feel your heart. Being seen and heard and appreciated are vital to the human spirit. Indeed, it is vital for health and life itself. Feeling valued, feeling that we are important, and an integral part of the group is the glue that holds all meaningful relationships together — families, friendships, neighborhoods, communities, businesses, organizations and more. 

Recognition does not mean giving a trophy to every participant, or an award where there was no meaningful effort. Such plaques are empty, even insulting. But it does mean  acknowledging in appropriate ways for the degree of service that is provided or effort made. The best award is one in which others agree that ‘you deserved it’ and can celebrate with you for a job well done. Yet, even small acts of kindness, good manners or common civility should be acknowledged. Someone who has just opened the door for you deserves to be looked in the face when saying ‘thank you‘. Shake the hand of the person who has carried your groceries or loaded your car. Because…

Gratitude blesses the giver as well as the receiver. 

And as to the person who receives the acknowledgment, it is a testament to their rising to the occasion whether there was rain or snow, whether they were tired or having a bad day themselves, whether it was difficult or not. They showed up that day and the next, and the next, to do their part. They noticed a need and fulfilled it. They stepped up to the plate. Yet…

Each of us stands on the shoulders of those that have gone before.

Awards not only honor those that receive them, but to the countless others who taught , mentored or coached them in developing character, discipline, responsibility, skills and expertise, and most important, humanity.

Behind every successful person are dozens of others that helped them along the way.

There is a saying that ‘behind every successful man is a woman’. But in truth, each of us is the person we are today because of others teaching, guiding, inspiring, supporting, and believing in us. No one achieves anything on their own. And in thanking that person, you are also thanking their parents and elders, their teachers, their pastor, their supporters and heroes.

This awareness helps to balance the ego. Yes, the one recognized can be rightfully proud of their achievements and what it took to get there. They can and should honor their own personal dedication and decision to be of service in any way they could, large or small. And at the same time, they should turn around to thank those who made it possible.

20180625_Dad

So, in addition to countless others who have helped me including my spiritual team, I want to thank my father, William Erwin Wackenhuth, for what I have achieved and the person I am still in process of becoming. He was a man who dropped out of high school at 16 to go to work as a draftsman. Yet he finished Newark’s Arts High School, then college at Newark College of Engineering and all but the final part of his Master’s Degree, all by going nights and walking miles each day just to save the trolley car fare.

He was a highly intelligent man, lifelong mechanical engineer, inventor, teacher at General Motors, ham radio operator, Sunday school teacher, devoted son, brother, husband and father. He was a Christian who lived by an examined (not blind) faith, and a man of enormous integrity, and dedication to his family. As many have said of him, ‘they broke the mold’ after he died. Yet, I see his legacy being passed on through my son. And I witness others who also were molded by men and women of strong character that are making an impact in their world. It is my hope that these traits become dominant in the American people once more.

 

Getting to the Root of It

Anyone who has dealt with weeds knows that unless you can dig up the taproot, the weed comes back. And anyone who has gotten a splinter, knows that until you get it all out, the pain continues. Get only part of it out, and it becomes inflamed and perhaps infected. Thinking positive, ignoring it, or trying not to think about it only prolongs the problem and make it worse.

 And so it is with negative repeating patterns. Any time there is a negative pattern of any kind, you can bet that the root cause has not been addressed. The only way to change things and stop the same problem occurring over and over again is to find and clear the original issue, which will be the unhealed trauma and the negative belief or judgment about the experience.

If you are successful, you will probably not get any more such experiences, or at least, less of them. But should something similar happen again, it’s effect upon you will be greatly mitigated, and you will much more quickly, and with greater effectiveness, grace and ease handle it in a better way. While the annoying people in your life may not have changed, you will have. Therefore, your experience of it will be different. Because you think differently about things that used to bother you, you feel and respond differently.

Getting to the bottom of issues can be tricky and time consuming.

The original event and the interpretations about it may be unknown, long forgotten or repressed. And instead of just one traumatic event, it may be a layering of multiple events, each reinforcing the detrimental judgment that with a self-fulfilling prophecy that tends to 

    • either attract more experiences of like kind,
    • Or you just react and feel as if they are the same type of event even if they are not. In other words, you perceive and feel ____(slight, insult, prejudice, etc.) because you are sensitized, not necessarily because it was intended or actually happened. 

Healing requires not only taking corrective action in the moment, but learning from the experience. Through strong intention, you can decide that the very experience that upsets you will enhance your personal and professional growth, adding to your wisdom, your maturity, and your greater value to others as a leader, counselor, mentor and role model. I call this ‘finding the blessing’.

It is not enough to just neutralize the negative emotions.

Learn and grow through them as well. 

But then go further. 

Ask yourself, “has anything like this happened before?” 

If you get a ‘yes’, then your current problem is alerting you to the need to heal these earlier issues now, and perhaps other related additional ones that you don’t remember. If you do find and heal the root cause, the negative pattern will stop. And if that happens, then go and personally thank the person who is your current ‘pain in the butt’, the one that brought the issue to your attention and motivated you to address it.

Layering of memories

We are hard wired as part of our survival mechanism to put meaning to experience – to interpret it as good or bad, threatening or not. It is the interpretation, not the event itself, that determines the emotion that follows. Perhaps you had an upsetting experience and then made a judgment about it, an interpretation of what it meant to you that you forgot or repressed. Perhaps it was never verbalized, or didn’t register consciously because it happened at a young age, in the womb, or in a past life.

We now have scientific evidence from studies done with mice and children of Holocaust survivors that issues and emotions such as fear are being passed on the DNA to the generations that follow. This may be part of the survival mechanism for the species.

But not only can you pick up things up unconsciously from your ancestors in that way, any vividly imagined events especially those with high emotion can register on an unconscious level as if they actually happened to you even if they did not. This includes the stories you hear from your family, your culture, group, or witness in the media. It can include those experiences of book or movie characters that make a deep impression. All of these elements become part of the soup making up your beliefs and judgments, which go on to create or at least influence your future experiences and it’s impact upon you.

Regardless of where or when it originated, it and others like it are stored internally and can effect you until you process or reframe them. Reframing is changing your interpretation of the event.

For example, after a bad accident, you might continue to shake with fear thinking “I almost died”, but you could also interpret it as “if I’m still here, I must have a purpose,” or “I survived and I’m going to celebrate every day because you never know how long you have, or ”I was protected” or “help was there precisely when I needed it.”

As more and similar experiences occur over time, they are added to the previous ones making the event, the emotions and judgements around them more pronounced like a toe that keeps getting stepped on until it becomes very sensitized and you become over zealous in protecting it.  The one-time judgment about someone stepping on your toes then becomes a generalized global judgment, such as “everyone keeps stepping all over me”, or a sensitivity or issue as in “I have constantly be on the alert that no one steps on me again.” 

Triggers and other factors

But along with the experience that is logged into your memory bank, so are the various elements of that experience – the sounds, colors, location, season, date, and the various people and other things present. Each element is capable of triggering the entire memory and the emotion connected to it. Such elements are labeled triggers. But in addition to the elements present at the time of the experience, you can also react to other things not involved in the bad experience itself, but merely associated with the person, places or things that were involved.

For example, if you have a bad breakup with your boyfriend, you can understand why you to feel uncomfortable should you bump into him again. But now you may very well experience discomfort upon seeing one of his friends or relatives, or hearing one of the bands that both of you enjoyed, your favorite song, or being in a place that you used to go to together. Everything you associate with that boyfriend can awaken all the painful emotions and reasons for the break up. These are triggers too.

With some triggers, you clearly know where the emotion such as the fear comes from. But with other emotions, fears, tension or uneasiness, you may not remember the connection. These are more properly labeled as phobias. The fear seems irrational because the connection to the event that caused it has been lost. So it is not just the upsetting event that needs to be cleared, but also all of the triggers, many of which you may be unaware of until they are activated.

Multiple modalities help to find and process the issue.

1. Meditation

One way a person can get clues is through meditation. Just still your mind and let a question roll around in your mind. For example: 

  • “where does this ____ (emotion/ issue/ problem of ____) come from?”
  • Or, “what do I need to know or let go of to heal this issue fully and completely now?”
  • Or, “how can I look at this experience so that it doesn’t bother me nearly as much?”
  • Or, “why does this problem/issue of ___ keep happening over and over again?”

2. The Infinite Intelligence Process 

The Infinite Intelligence Process is a 3-prong modality that I developed. It can be used with meditation, formal hypnosis, self-hypnosis, or dowsing. I use it daily to clear my mind so that I have a restful sleep, quickly process the events of the day, relieve stress, chip away at issues, access internal resources, and, in general, speed up problem solving and make life go smoother. You can learn it through my book Accessing More – Tapping into the Eternal, Unlimited Self with the Infinite Intelligence Process.

You could utilize phrases like:

 “There is a part of my Being that knows where this ___ (emotion/ issue/ problem of ____) comes from and is bringing everything that I need to know into my awareness so that it can be healed/resolved now.” 

Or “There is a part of me that knows how to heal/resolve this in a way in which I am really pleased, and is doing so now.” 

Or after installing the Process Program that is activated with trigger words of process followed by go, you could say:

“From the perspective of my High Self, process and resolve everything to do with the problem of ____ in a way in which I am really pleased. Go.”

3. Hypnosis

Hypnosis has multiple methods of regressing to cause and then resolving the issue. In age regression, the information is brought up into awareness, verbalized in the hypnosis. The client is then guided in reframing or otherwise resolving the issue until it seems complete. My favorite hypnotic techniques are called ‘unconscious healing modalities’ because they operate below the level of conscious awareness and do not involve any verbalization by the client. The hypnotherapist creates depth of trance, establishes an ideomotor response, gets the agreement of the unconscious mind to locate and resolve the issue by itself. The instructions include to resolve the issue “in a way in which ___ (name) is ‘really pleased”.

4. Neural Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Time Line Therapy outlined in a book by the same title is a specific technique within NLP developed by Tad James and Wyatt Woodsmall. It is very helpful to quickly clear issues for which you don’t know the origin. It works below the level of conscious awareness. The instructions include “find the positive learning and release the upset.”

5. The Emotion Code

This method was developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson and works with muscle testing. But I use pendulum dowsing instead to locate the issue and determine the degree to which it is involved. Even if I use a magnet or running my fingers along the governing meridian as he suggests, I will also use dowsing to clear it further, and then check the degree to which I was successful.

6. The Emotional Freedom Technique 

Tap on the issue and everything around it including “Even though I may not know where this _____ (issue, emotion, problem of ___) comes from, I deeply love and accept myself.” 
There are other energy modalities as well to change beliefs. 

7. Dowsing

Pendulum dowsing using charts and checklists specially created for this purpose can quickly find the root cause and related factors of any issue. You can learn to do on your own, anytime day or n

 

ight. No appointment and no wait time is necessary. It can find information that is not accessible either at all or not as easily found another way. It is extremely helpful in all problem solving, but especially helpful when the original cause is unknown, unconscious, forgotten, repressed, picked up in the womb or from the culture or tribe, or even stemming from past lives.

Interview with Dowser, Diane Bull

Recently, I interviewed Dowser, frequent presenter and former Trustee of the American Society of Dowsers, Diane Bull, regarding what she thinks is important that new dowsers understand especially on the topic of Ethics and Etiquette. This is the topic that was addressed in the last Dowsing Support and Continuing Education Teleconference Call earlier this month, but for which Diane could not personally participate as she had a previous commitment. Nonetheless, her input is important on this topic. And so I offer it more fully here.

Diane first directed me to the older version of the ASD Preamble upon which concepts the Society was founded. I quote in part: 

“Dowsing is a faculty employed with intent to expand the perceptive abilities of its practitioner beyond three-dimensional limitations. It is a most ancient, varied craft, as ancient and varied as humanity itself. Dowsing has roots, among all manner of peoples, lands, and epochs. There seems to exist an ageless natural knowledge, that enables us to identify ourselves with an unknown source of being and becoming; it is of primary significance, joining Earth, sea, and stars.” [my emphasis]

Spiritual pride is to be avoided by the dowser. Psychic powers, intellectual aptitudes, or physical skills are useless unless applied for the benefit of allThese may properly be expressed only in an increasing awareness of the oneness of all life and in greater love for the whole of humanity….the power generated in and by a group of interested persons is greater by far than the sum of its numbers.”

The primary point is that dowsing is first of all a spiritual connection. It is a receptivity to the source of being that underlies all. And Diane says that dowsing requires a pure heart and an intention of being of service for the highest good. As it is a receiving function, it cannot be pressured. It is helpful to take a deep breath, stop, center, and connect with your own core. She urges us to maintain a childlike wonder at both the process and the answers. 

Dowsing requires a balancing of humility with strength of conviction. When presenting your responses to others, do so as your ‘opinion’.

While new dowsers tend to want to take care of everybody, they need to check first if they should dowse for someone or about a particular topic. Refer out when you get a ‘no‘. You should not feel pressured to dowse for anyone or anything if you feel uncomfortable. Instead, politely decline.

Young dowsers need to rein in their excitement to want to help the whole world until they are ready. If you think that someone needs your help, find a way instead to offer love that is neither marketing nor interfering.

Diane advises seeing everyone as whole and complete, but cautions in changing another person’s energy field, especially if the energy field is already weakened. Clear the energies in the room, not in the people.

There is strength in numbers when people dowse together as it brings in each person’s strengths. Partner dowsing is also helpful. Agree to work together on the etheric level.

Yet each person’s dowsing responses should still be considered ‘opinion’, not fact. Suspend judgment, and accept one another’s differences. Remember that everyone’s truth is only their opinion. Have compassion for others. If you disagree in the group, find a separate venue to present your opinion instead of attacking the person with whom you disagree.

And above all, in all ways do no harm.

Diane lives with her husband and dowser, Leroy Bull, who also has played a prominent part in the American Society of Dowsers. They now reside in Stamford, Connecticut. Both are most skilled in a multitude of dowsing applications.
