TOPIC: Geomantic Dowsing: Finding the Right Place & Earth Energies. 

Richard will talk about many of the ways that he has used dowsing for the last four decades as an essential tool in his professional work of geomancy, feng shui, site planning, environmental design, labyrinth siting, and exploring Earth Energies at Power spots.
Richard Feather Anderson, founder of the American School of Geomancy, has spent a lifetime reconstructing the fragmented traditions of western shamanic geomancy and metaphysical environmental design. He is an internationally recognized pioneer in the revival of geomancy, feng shui, sacred geometry, and labyrinths. He began his career in architecture; then studied Earth Mysteries with the world’s leading experts; Feng Shui with Professor Lin Yun, lineage holder of the Black Sect Tibetan Tantric Buddhism; and sacred geometry with Dr. Keith Critchlow of the Prince of Wales Institute of Architecture. He has been designated a Feng Shui Master by Feng Shui Institute International. Richard is on the faculty at the Globe Sound & Consciousness Institute in San Francisco and the Golden Gate Feng Shui School in Oakland. He previously taught in the EcoDwelling and EcoAgriculture programs at New College of California in Santa Rosa, CA.
Richard was one of the first people in America to talk about walking labyrinths for spiritual development and to develop techniques to lay them out on the ground. He started the ASD West Coast Conference Labyrinth Project in 1986, designed the first permanent labyrinth in an American church at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral, led sacred geometry tours at France’s Chartres Cathedral, and was Esalen Institute’s feng shui advisor. He co-directed the ASD National Convention’s Earth Mysteries Dowsing School in 1991, teaches every year in the WCC Advanced Dowsing School, and generously shares his knowledge with passion and humor.

Central Virginia Dowsers Meeting:

“Healing Drama, Trauma and Karma with Your Relatives” with Roxanne Louise20180616_awardASD:me

Free. Senior Center, 1180 Pepsi Place, Charlottesville, VA 22901. RSVP toRoxanneLouise2@gmail.com or call 434-263-4337

There is a theory that karma, and strong emotions of love and hate, binds us lifetime after lifetime to the very people calling forth the extreme polarity of those feelings.

There is another theory that life’s purpose is one of growth not comfort, which necessitates being faced with challenges and problems of all kinds lest you get soft or bored! To find solutions we are pushed to dig deep within our inner resources. Sink or swim! Our problems also challenge us to learn to love and forgive the unlovable both in ourselves and others.

And there is yet another theory that we are acting in a play of our own creation in which before birth we decided amongst our friends upon the plot and a cast of characters–who was going to play the villain, and who the hero, who the maiden in distress, and who the wicked witch. If any of this is true, it would be reasonable to suppose that these challenges and cast of characters would show up in the most important and intimate of our relationships — OUR FAMILY!

On this Mother’s Day, Roxanne will use dowsing to to show you how you can heal the drama, trauma and karma with some of your relatives (and/or others). Bring a pendulum or purchase one in class. Maybe also bring a photo or two with you.

The class is a further exploration of last month’s meeting.

We will also be working with BRAND NEW LAMINATED DOWSING CHARTSthat Roxanne just created by Roxanne Louise. 

  1. Master Dowsing Chart

  2. Prepare to Dowse Chart

  3. Healing Intention with Ho’Oponopono Chart

(If you like them, they will be available for sale for $7.95 each or 2/$15. #1 and #2 are flip sides of same card. Whereas flip side to #3 are the instructions on how to use it.)

2. American Society of Dowsers: TWO free MONTHLY Dowsing Support Teleconferences, 8 PM Eastern

Roxanne is HOSTING a Monthly Free Teleconference “Dowsers Support & Continuing Education” through the American Society of Dowsers. Every second Tuesday at 8 PM Eastern Time (US),

Mark HurwichComing Up: Tuesday, 2/12: “Goal Setting and Aligning with Your Higher Purpose” with Mark Hurwich and Roxanne Louise.

Dowsing is extremely helpful in setting all sorts of goals – from the daily ‘to do’ lists, determining priorities, to lining up the weekly, monthly, yearly, New Year’s Resolutions, and your overall path in life. It can assess your acceptance or resistance to realizing these goals, and it can resolve self sabotage, doubt, and self-esteem issues related to them. 

Big goals require big energy and invariably confront big challenges. To muster that energy and get through those difficulties, it is important to have a good reason to do so. This is why Mark and I also look at finding your core intention – your why. 

At last year’s ASD Convention, Mark Hurwich addressed this in a talk “Supercharge Your Why: Dowsing for Core Intention. ” This is available for sale through the ASD Bookstore. See here.

Mark uses body dowsing and Core Intention in a niched business coaching healers, entrepreneurs and others who are “stuck.” He has over 34 years of coaching and consulting experiences in strategy and strategy implementation at multinational firms. Mark lives with his wife, dowser Gale West, in Evanston, Illinois. His website is concentratedcoaching.net.

Robert W. Alcorn, MD, is a psychiatrist and a member of the American Society of Dowsers. He uses dowsing in the Soul Detective aspect of his practice. In his many years of psychiatric work, he has come to recognize that many of the psychiatric symptoms his patient endure are the result of intrusion by spiritual beings into the energies of the patient. He is particularly interested in this phenomenon as it appears in intuitive people, such as psychics, medical intuitives, and, of course, dowsers. He believes that people who are intuitive, who have High Sense Perception, are often very reluctant to seek help in the psychiatric world because they (rightly) fear their subtle perceptions will be treated as symptomatic of significant psychiatric pathology. He believes that it is normal for human beings to perceive invisible beings of all kinds, but that skill is trained out of us at a very early age.
 
He will discuss the range of spirit beings who can cause trouble for us, how to recognize that this is what has happened to oneself, and how to release these beings in a harmonious and compassionate way, even the nasty ones!
Dr. Alcorn is in practice in Ohio. He has incorporated shamanic methods and energetic healing in his approach to patients’ suffering. He is the author of Healing Stories: My Journey from Mainstream Psychiatry toward Spiritual Healing. His website is www.dralcorn.us.

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?

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.

My passion is in using pendulum dowsing for mental and emotional healing both for myself and my clients.  I have adapted it to the hypnotherapy practice and will be teaching hypnotherapists as well as other mental health professionals how to apply it for that purpose an all-day workshop,  “Therapeutic Dowsing and Telepathic Healing” on Monday, April 29 at the upcoming Heartland Hypnosis Conference, in St. Louis, Missouri.

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.

  • 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

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.

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.

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.
