Creating Flow – Pendulum Dowsing Course in Manhattan, 6/25

Creating Flow: 

Clearing Stuck Mental/ Emotional Energies

A complete PENDULUM DOWSING COURSE
with Roxanne Louise
Tuesday, June 25, 10 AM to 6 PM

LOCATION: Manhattan, New York

(midtown east near Grand Central Terminal)

All sorts of unresolved trauma, drama and emotional residue siphons off vital energy needed to be healthy, happy, successful, productive, and vibrantly alive. Lacking the awareness, skills, time and/or energy to process, these things get shoved in the background where they get added to current stressors making life more difficult. What you think you got over may only have been buried yet still festering beneath the surface and causing trouble. Learn to quickly locate what needs to be addressed, the root cause of such issue, AND be guided in healing and clearing it out once and for all without trauma or reliving it! This includes stuck energies on people, ages, events, activities, as well as detrimental beliefs, judgments, addictive thinking, fears, self-sabotage, secondary gain, and even other people’s issues you picked up. All of these things can hold you back from making your dreams come true. THEN: We will refocus on what you want instead, dowse on setting goals and priorities, and manifest with greater grace and ease to FLOW IN THE DIRECTION YOU WANT TO GO! 

We will be working in class with dozens of extensive charts and checklists from Roxanne Louise’s comprehensive book, Therapeutic Dowsing and Telepathic Healing. 

Not only will this workshop give you a much deeper understanding of yourself, but it has the potential of stopping negative repeating patterns and creating positive flow in every area of your life!

Heal Yourself to Heal Your World

“Before you can help make the world right,

you must be made right within.”        John Miller

earth-global-globe-87651It is very easy to compile a lengthly list of what is wrong in the world. Society has traditionally tried to address those wrongs through a top down approach of rules and regulations, and the legal and judicial system. While a deterrent, such measures cannot stop bad behavior. People will find a way around them. Furthermore, a top down approach makes you dependent upon others to write and execute the laws and enforce them. If those people are themselves corrupt, new laws, new systems, will not change underlying evil and abuses. This can make you feel hopeless and powerless.

“Whatever is right or wrong in our world is exactly what is right or wrong in the individual human heart.” —Margaret Leckie

What if you considered that the world, filled as it is with people just like us, was simply a reflection of our own issues and what was unhealed within ourselves? Is it not then conceivable that in taking the responsibility to heal ourselves of any resonating trait or emotion that such healing would become a ripple in the pond influencing those around us, motivating and enabling them to evolve as well?

This is something that each of us can do—overcome our own issues, inspire, mentor, and teach others how to do it, until it becomes the ‘100th Monkey Effect’. Or to paraphrase Gandhi, we can individually

Be the change, we want to see in the world.

Physicist, Tom Campbell, agrees. He says that simply replacing the leaders or the system, will not result in real, long-term improvement unless the consciousness of the populace changes. One dictator or set of crooks will be replaced by others until the population no longer supports them. Campbell says that

Unless WE change, real, permanent change will not happen. But as we grow and evolve in consciousness, our leaders and systems will reflect that.

Yet, history has also demonstrated that a single individual is not powerless. One person can make a difference. And that person doesn’t have to be a guru, a charismatic leader, or a motivational speaker. Ordinary people such as Rosa Parkes made a difference. There are people out of the limelight quietly doing simple things like planting trees, cleaning up debris, that over time make an impact upon their communities. There are Transcendental Meditators that have significantly reduced the crime rate or political tensions in certain areas. 

Again, Campbell says that the thoughts, emotions, and consciousness of each individual are felt by the whole. As each person evolves, he makes easier for the next to do so.

Ho’oponopono

One man, Clinical Psychologist, Dr Ihaleakala Hew Len had such a profound healing effect upon his patients at the Hawaii State Hospital for the criminally insane that it was closed in just a few years. Previously that ward had been a very dangerous place with high staff absenteeism and turnover.

“After a few months of Dr Hew Len being there, patients who had been shackled started being allowed to walk freely; others who’d been heavily medicated, started getting their medications reduced; and those who had been seen as having no chance of ever being released, were being released and freed.” 

Dr. Len did this solely through the practice of Ho’oponopono. In studying the inmate files, he would work on healing himself by repeating a mantra over and over –

“I’m sorry, Please forgive me, I love you, Thank you.”

In saying his mantra, Dr. Len was taking responsibility for what was showing up in his life, which were his patients. He considered it his creation and therefore, his responsibility do something about although it was not his fault. Taking responsibility means to heal yourself in order to heal whatever or whoever it is that appears to you as a problem. 

Physician, heal thyself!” (ancient Greek proverb)

Ho’oponopono recognizes that we are all part of one consciousness system. Consequently, our actions, reactions, and very our consciousness effect the system even as we are effected by it. 

“No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.

John Donne, Meditation XVII, English clergyman & poet (1572 – 1631)

Ho’oponopono is related to the principle of Quantum Entanglement. While Quantum Entanglement is a theory from physics that explains the effect that one particle can have on another even though separated by huge distances, the psychological implications are that individuals have a very real effect on one another. Your thoughts and feelings not only guide your action but also effect others. 

The bad news is that my funky mood, anger or resentment, even if never expressed, can have a negative effect, like agitation or depression, upon you, which can cycle back onto me. Therefore, I not only have a responsibility to clean up my mess, but it is in my best interests to do so.

“What goes around, comes around.”

The good news is in healing myself, I not only feel better, but I am setting up a conductive environment for others to heal as well, who in turn help even more people to do the same. These ever enlarging ripples in the pond make a big difference. And all of us reap the benefits!

Whether you agree with Hew Len’s underlying premise, you cannot argue with his results. If one man can be heal the criminally insane, what can each of us do with addressing those issues and wrongdoings that upset us? The caveat is that to make a real dent you have to be relentless about constantly clearing any issue until the situation changes. Len says that it is a lifetime process. Like an onion, things come off in layers.

Former hypnosis colleague Doreen Virtue taught me years ago as a way of healing and releasing blame and negative judgment, 

“I recognize and forgive in myself what irritates me about you!”

Rather than immediately assigning blame of who is wrong and needs to be punished, consider that what you judge may also reflect a quality inside yourself. However, getting angry, irritated, upset or triggered is helpful in revealing your Shadow Self – that part of the psyche that denies and hides away of your own unacceptable thoughts, emotions, and behavioral impulses. explained at length by psychiatrist, Dr. Carl Gustav Jung and author Debbie Ford. 

The ego avoids self loathing by denying the existence of it’s own faults by projecting them onto others. This process of denial and projection tends to attract people who reflect these same faults. In other words, if you deny your anger, angry people show up in your life. It is the soul’s attempt to get you to look at yourself and then heal. As you admit and forgive yourself for your own shortcomings, you will have greater tolerance of others, and instead attract others who have likewise worked on healing their own issues.

What is denied cannot be healed. Therefore, unsavory people, conditions or events in our lives serve a useful purpose in calling us to recognize and heal those resonating elements within ourselves. Instead of condemning your adversary, thank them for bringing your own baggage to your attention to now process.

How you can use your upset to heal?

Identify the trait or issue or behavior that you dislike or upsets you. Look inside honestly to see if you have ever exhibited that trait, acted that way or wanted to, even in a minuscule way, maybe years ago. If so, accept and forgive yourself anyway. This is profoundly healing, and stops the repetition of more of the same type of unpleasant experiences.

And then because you may not know or remember if you are ever did something similar, do the Emotional Freedom Technique on a ‘can’t hurt basis:

“Even though I don’t know if  I have ever ____ (felt/done/wanted to)  ___, I deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I don’t know if there is anything in me that attracted or contributed to this condition/situation,  I deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I don’t know what is within me that resonates with this condition/situation,  I deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I don’t know what needs to heal within me that reflects this condition/situation,  I deeply love and accept myself.”

Perhaps in another lifetime you acted in a despicable way, and while you have since matured, you may never have forgiven yourself. Or perhaps, the old data file for that nasty behavior still lingers in the recesses of your being waiting for a trigger to reactivate it. Hence, having a mirror image of your former self may show up in your life to get you to recognize your common humanity and forgive yourself now. Dowse on it.

How can dowsing help?

Dowsing is profoundly powerful in identifying issues, the origin, and reasons behind them. It can be used to focus intention to clear mental and emotional issues, and to calibrate completion. And it can identify possible action to take in the physical world. How to do this will be presented below:

UPCOMING SEMINAR/ WORKSHOP:

I am going to be doing a preliminary talk at the Central Virginia Dowsers Meeting in Charlottesville on Sunday, April 14, and then going more into depth on how to use dowsing for this process at the American Society of Dowsers Convention being held at Plymouth State University, Plymouth, New Hampshire, June 26-30.

RESOURCES: You can use dowsing instead of muscle testing with Dr. Bradley Nelson’s book, the Emotion Code. You can dowse with the Infinite Intelligence Process, as outlined in my book, Accessing More—Tapping Into the Wisdom Within With the Infinite Intelligence Process, and you can use the many charts and checklist in my pendulum dowsing manual, Therapeutic Dowsing and Telepathic Healing).

Dowsing Without Permission

Recently someone called me for my professional help. Unfortunately, he called at a very bad time. While I said that I couldn’t help him that moment or even that day, nonetheless, I would him back later to get more information on what he wanted. I suggested something he do in the meantime that might be helpful.

Before we hung up, he sensed something off in my energy, and asked me if I was going through something. I said that ‘yes’ I was dealing with major technological issues with a computer program. [I was right in the middle of designing a new cover for one of my books, and the page kept flipping off the screen, the font and all type settings kept switching to a default setting I didn’t want, and I was going bonkers with trying to get it done for a meeting with the printer today. It had been working on it for hours. I was also pressed for time because I had to finish the cover before I could close down the computer, and late to get out the door to feed and lock up my farm animals for the night.  I had spent the entire week searching for a 194 page manuscript that a computer repairman had deleted from my back up hard drive along with 30 years worth of other writing including books, charts, manuals, correspondence . He was able to retrieve only a portion of it.So, yes, I was stressed and the tension must have been in my voice.

There had been other major problems, but I didn’t want to go into it. After all, this was not a friend or relative, not someone I even knew, and certainly, you do not ever discuss your personal issues with clients or potential ones. 

Anyway, when I called him back, he said that following my suggestion he now felt great. But now he wanted to ‘share’ what he picked up on me and tell me how to deal with it. The problem was that I hadn’t asked for his help. I had not given him permission to dowse or tune in with me to do a psychic reading. But because I felt that he was probably a good, decent, kind hearted man just wanting to be helpful, I was polite instead of rudely cutting him off. Nonetheless, the interchange bothered me.

This minor incident brings up some guidelines that we need to talk about in the dowsing  community. 

Here’s what bothered me:

  • Unsolicited dowsing or psychic readings are a form of snooping, spying, and are not ethical. They are an invasion of privacy. 
  • They are a betrayal of trust that others respect your psychic boundaries, and negate building a relationship with them in the future.
  • It is presumptuous that anyone without taking the time to do a detailed, lengthy  interview could possibly know what is going on in someone else’s life or advise them.
  • It can be considered arrogant to tell someone how they might address their problems without knowing all the details from a lengthly conversation–
    • what they already know,
    • what they have already been doing about it,
    • and what the results have been.
    • Otherwise you are insulting them.

While psychics and empaths may have no training or professional guidelines to follow, dowsers who have undergone any training program of value have been told that

  • you must have permission to dowse by the person for whom you are going to dowse in advance– not by their friend or spouse, but the person himself or the person with legal custody or authority has to initiate the request. You do not dowse first, and then ask to share later. If you haven’t been asked, you don’t dowse at all!

ONLY AFTER BEING ASKED, do you should proceed to ask what you consider Divine Spirit:

  •  ‘Can I, May I, Should I’?

But, I repeat YOU MUST BE ASKED to dowse! Some people skip this. DON’T.

Good intentions are NOT good enough.

Remember, that accuracy in all dowsing and intuitive work comes after a long, period of hard work. You may think you are getting permission from your true spiritual guidance to dowse or do a reading, but that thought can also come from your ego, trickster energy, not high level guidance. It is important to practice discernment in selecting someone to work with. If I don’t know you, or know you well enough to have earned my trust and confidence, I don’t want you dowsing for me.

Further, you may think that you know what someone is feeling and why they are feeling that way and what to do about it because it resonates with something within you. But your thoughts are about you and your history, not about the other person.

COULDA, WOULDA, SHOULDA

From every situation, there is much to learn.

VENTING EXERCISE – Writing a letter you do NOT send.  

While this entire blog post is a vent for me of something I have observed for a while, I thought it might potentially be something that could help you as well. Hence, I posted it. 

In retrospect, here what I could or should have said:

Thank you for wanting to be of assistance. But I don’t know you or your qualifications before I would feel comfortable launching into the details. Nor do I have the time to do so now. It is also a violation of my professional code of ethics to discuss any personal issues with clients or potential ones.

 I would have preferred if you had first asked me for permission to ___ (dowse/ tune into me psychically). As it is, I am somewhat uncomfortable. I feel as if was a violation of my privacy even though you are now asking for permission to share what you found. While I feel that you are good, kind-hearted person just wanting to help, I do not want to go into what is going on.

If you want to be of service, I would appreciate it if you would simply bless me by holding a positive vision of me ____ (sorting out all of my technical issues so that books are beautifully and professionally printed to great acclaim, etc.). For that, I would be grateful. Thank you.”

ReleasingAngerCoverpngIn my book, Releasing Anger Without Killing Anyone, and the workshops that I am teaching both at the Heartland Hypnosis Conference in St. Louis, Missouri on April 29, and the HypnoExpo in Daytona Beach, Florida on May 17, I recommend writing a letter to fully ventilate everything you WANTED to say but didn’t, and wished that you had. 

Get it all out in the most truthful, blunt manner. Then go back over and refine it to get to the core issue/s. If you later will want, need, or expect to talk to this person later, your un-mailed letter will have clarified the crux of what bothered you, and what you want instead so that your next conversation can be more productive.

Once done,  you can move on to a THANK YOU NOTE you also do NOT send. 

This makes you cognizant of what you learned as a result of the unpleasant interchange (and there is ALWAYS something of value to be gained). When you can acknowledge that you learned or grew a lot perhaps out of necessity, perhaps out of personal commitment to do so, or perhaps just as a natural response to the situation, it assists you to then release any negative emotions regarding that experience. Ask yourself the question, “What can I learn from this to ____ (be better, grow, improve my ____)?” “How could I have handled it better?” Then write down as many things as you can think of.

“Dear ______, thank you for inspiring me with material for this blog article.

Thank you for helping me ____ (learn to, forgive myself for, clarify, set better boundaries, speak up for myself, stop conversations immediately when they are spiraling downwards, come up with a helpful strategy to use next time, etc.)____.

WHAT About the Other Guy? What could he have done differently?

There are always times when we sense that something is ‘off’ when we are speaking with someone. It can be as simple as they are in the middle of something, they have someone on the other phone line, or are running out to an appointment, or the cat just vomited on the rug, etc.

There is no problem asking, but leave it alone if the other person does not want to talk about it, or talk to you, or then, or ___. Do not pursue it through dowsing or any psychic means. Rather just hold a positive image of them at their best – happy, healthy, centered, etc.

  • “Is this a bad time? Would you like to call me back? Can I give you my phone number and you call me when it is a good time?” 
  • “You sound ___ (stressed, tired, etc.). Are you okay? Would you like to talk about it?”
  • “I am a ___ (dowser, empath, psychic, etc.). Would you like my assistance to check on something for you?
  • “Can I help you in any way?”

Post Script: By the way, those familiar with the Law of Attraction, may have noted that I am speaking on Releasing Anger at two conferences coming up shortly. So the Universe has given me an opportunity to practice what I preach and to further expand upon the exercises I had already planned for the classes. The Universe has such a sense of humor!!!

For more information on Ethics see the blog articles below. Even while I talk about dowsing, these ethical considerations apply to any form of counseling, hypnosis, or therapeutic work:

Pendulums and Hypnosis

The Historical Connection Between Hypnosis and Pendulums

 

hypnosis-4041582_640

The Swinging Pocket Watch — Creating Trance with Eye Fixation

The 19th century Scottish physician who coined the term ‘hypnosis’, Dr. James Braid,  found that staring creates a hypnotic state. Hence, many old-time hypnotists used a swinging pendulum (sometimes a pocket watch on a chain) for that purpose.

The object would be held slightly above the client’s eye level so he had to look up at an angle. The client would be asked to stare while suggestions were given for eye fatigue, closure and hypnosis. For example, “as you stare at the pendulum moving back and forth,  your eyes are getting sleepier and sleepier, you’re becoming more and more relaxed, and your eyes want to close right down. That’s right, closing right down now. Sleep!”

Ideomotor Response

My first introduction to a pendulum came with my initial hypnosis training with Dick Harte in 1989. He called it Chevreul’s Pendulum after the 19th century French scientist, Michel Eugene Chevreul, who found that it was a way to elicit an ideomotor response –those small unconscious movements that are caused in response to our thoughts. Thought alone could cause a small weight on a string to move. If the mind could be programmed to cause the pendulum to move in one direction when the answer was ‘yes’, and another direction when the answer was ‘no’, then information below the level of conscious awareness could be obtained. While kinesiology is another way to solicit unconscious information with a ‘yes’ and ‘no’ response, using a pendulum is much easier on the body.  

Today, hypnotists are less likely to create an ideomotor response with a pendulum. Instead, the more frequent method used is to induce hypnosis and then program the client to indicate his response to questions with finger movements instead. Once hypnotized, it is suggested to the client that he lift a specific finger when the answer is ‘yes’, another to mean ‘no’, and perhaps a third finger lifting to mean ‘I don’t know’. The advantage of this finger method is that the client does not have to continue to hold the pendulum throughout the hypnosis, which can last a long time.

Whereas the advantage of the pendulum is that the client does not have to be hypnotized or to even close his eyes to signal the true feelings of his subconscious mind. And further, that the client can do it on his own to get answers for himself. And as you already read , the hypnotist can easily transition from eye fixation with the pendulum to trance induction.

Uncovering the Buried Origins of Problems in the Subconscious Mind

It is extremely important to develop a way to determine your true beliefs and inner feelings. All too often you don’t know. You may repress them, or lie to yourself. And while some of the root cause of issues can be recovered through hypnotic age or past life regression, the negative judgments and trauma causing a problem may be so buried in time, may have been absorbed in the womb from someone else, and the resulting fears so deep that it was passed on from our ancestors along with the DNA–all things that you can never discover consciously. Talk therapy will never reach it. Other methods have to be employed, and dowsing is one way to do so.

Dowsing is the fastest way to tap into the subconscious mind for answers!

Learning to dowse (the art of tapping into your subconscious and Higher Guidance with a tool such as a pendulum as the read-out device) is perhaps the easiest way to develop your intuition and self awareness, your inner wisdom and other resources for guidance and resolution of issues. Not only can you find out why you repeatedly procrastinate or self-sabotage, but you can then do something about it by correcting erroneous ideas, internal fears, conflicts, and traumas.

Talking to the Subconscious Mind with the Pendulum

If you learn to dowse with a pendulum, you could ask, “On an subconscious level, how committed am I to ____ (stop smoking, follow through with ____)?” You could turn to a percentage chart such as the one below, and ask, “On a scale of 0 to 100, to what degree is my subconscious willing to _____?” 

YesNoLangChrtHere is a chart from Dale Olson that you can download free from his website, getintuitive.com. [Dale has written a number of dowsing chart books that are available for purchase.]

What questions can the hypnotist ask while the client is holding the pendulum?

Once the client has ‘yes’ and ‘no’ response movements established, the hypnotist could follow with questions to find out the extent of unconscious resistance or cooperation, and more. He could even turn it into the full therapy, which is precisely what dowsers do. For example,

  • “Unconscious mind, do you know the cause of _____’s (name) problem of ____?”
  • “Is there only one cause? Are there two? three or more?”
  • “Do we need to know what caused this problem of ___ in order to ____ (heal, resolve or release it)?” [If you get a ‘yes’, then you will have to ask a lot more questions in or out of hypnosis.]
  • “Are you, unconscious mind, willing to assist (name of client) to ____ (heal, resolve, or release any further need for that problem of _____)?
  • “Are you, unconscious mind, willing to assist (name of client) to do _____ instead?
  • Can you, unconscious mind,  _____ (heal/resolve/release any further need for that problem)?
  • “Are you willing to do so now?”
  • “Then close your eyes and do so, and don’t reopen them until you are done. Start now.”

Using the Pendulum as a Suggestibility Test. 

At the beginning of the first meeting with a client, the hypnotist might want to know how amenable to suggestion or resistant (fearful) that client is. This will effect the type of approach used with that client. Is an authoritarian (telling the client what he will experience) or permissive (suggesting possible things he may or may not experience) approach going to work better? Does the client have a need to be in control out of fear that has to be addressed up front? 

chevreuls-pendulum-test

How to Do the Suggestibility Test

Place a picture of a large circle with a vertical and a horizontal line crossing in the middle similar to the one above from my colleague Cal Banyon’s website, hypnosis center.com. Have the client sit or stand directly over the paper, and hold a pendulum a couple of inches off the center of the crossing point. Ask him to stare at the diagram and move his eyes up and down the line. Then say as you move your finger up and down “As your eyes move up and down the line, ____ [choose one of below]

Permission Approach: “you may find that there is a tendency for the pendulum to begin to move up and down the line as well.”

Authoritarian Approach: “the pendulum will begin to move up and down the line as well.” 

 Once the pendulum is moving from either approach, switch to moving the eyes side to side along the horizontal line. Either way, movement indicates the client’s openness to suggestion by the hypnotist. If the pendulum does not move at all, he is ‘resistant’, which only means that he possibly being so analytical that he is getting in the way, that he is saying it is humbug, or that he needs to be in control and work against any suggestion given to him.

dowsing cover frontIf you want to learn Pendulum Dowsing, I  have an entire pendulum training manual, Therapeutic Dowsing and Telepathic Healing, that will provide the information and materials to develop this into a very sophisticated art to help yourself and others.

“Dowsing to Dump Bad Habits – Part 1”

I have been a creative problem solver all of my life. But since becoming a hypnotherapist in 1989, I have been helping people professionally to get rid of smoking, overeating, procrastination, and a host of bad habits as well as detrimental mental and emotional patterns. In 1990, I added dowsing to my hypnosis, counseling and other skills for a comprehensive approach to dumping bad habits. 

Because I understood the dynamics of smoking and addiction in general, I created dowsing charts for typical conscious reasons why people started smoking as well as both the conscious and unconscious reasons that keep the habit/addiction alive. I then created charts and checklists on interventions, visualizations, modalities, and strategies that would most likely work with any individual client. I made dowsing charts on secondary gain (a benefit obtained from a problem), defense mechanisms, coping skills, emotions, beliefs, judgments, and much more. These charts eventually became the book, Therapeutic Dowsing and Telepathic Healing.

dowsing cover frontAs I studied all the reasons for overweight and what to do about them, I created dowsing charts for the physical reasons for weight gain and difficulties in losing. I had other charts for the emotional and psychological reasons for weight including the reasons why people binge or eat when they are not hungry. And I had many charts on various traumas, issues, and typical life events as well as the people and ages at which they may have originated.

 

 

The most important parts of getting rid of any problem behavior are:

  • A decision and commitment

Nothing happens until you do this.

  • Having a big enough reason—your why. 

What’s the downside if you don’t change? Be very clear about this. Then you can dowse the key issue/s. 

What’s the upside if you do? Clarify this as well. Dowse out the most important.

What do you want more than ___ (the cigarette, ice cream/potato chips, beer, etc.)?This is all part of your clarity of purpose. 

Anthony Robbins says that all motivation is carrot and stick. A donkey can be motivated to move forward if he wants to get the carrot held in front of him, or he can move because someone is hitting him on the rump with a stick and it hurts enough. 

Do you go to work because you love your job and can’t wait to get there? Or do you grudgingly get out of a warm, comfortable bed because you don’t want to be fired and end up homeless?

Increase the appeal of moving forward to make the change, as well as increasing the distaste for the negative ramifications of not doing so.

  • Clearing, healing, resolving any resistance to change

Dowse out the percentage of resistance to getting rid of the bad habit. Perhaps your unconscious mind thinks it is helping you in some way by maintaining it. If so, use dowsing, EFT, or hypnosis to re-educate the unconscious of a constructive way to achieve the higher intention, and to agree to release the negative habit.

  • Increasing the allowance, even excitement for change

Dowse out this percentage as well. Then ask if you can increase it to the highest level possible at this time, and do so.

  • Knowledge of the issue at hand

Do some research on the habit you want to change. Then you can design your own dowsing checklists/charts. For example, overeating can be triggered by food cravings stemming from allergies, metabolic issues, fungal overgrowth, as well as psychological or emotional issues, particularly anger and guilt. If physical causes elicit a positive dowsing response, it would make sense to consult a physician. 

Smoking can start as a desire to be grown-up, rebel against authority, seek acceptance by the ‘in crowd’. Unconsciously the person is still the kid trying to fulfill those original desires. List the possible reasons and dowse out what is relevant to you.

Knowing that addictions are filling a void will help you to look for what it is that is trying to be filled and address that. Is there an emotional or psychological wound that has to be healed? Dowse.

  • Substitution of a positive or constructive alternative

What are you going to do instead? 

Understanding that overeating, taking drugs or alcohol, and smoking are coping strategies for many emotional states (boredom, loneliness, upset, depression), will make you aware of the need to learn healthy ways of coping with stress and emotional lows. 

  • A well designed strategy. 

Again by doing research on what has helped others will allow you to design your own program. List the possibilities and dowse out what will work for you. Having a buddy or someone to whom you place yourself accountable is helpful. Do a 30 day challenge with a friend.

  • Focus

This is needed to stay on track as it takes time of consciously doing things in the new way until it becomes routine and comfortable. But be aware that if you slouch off, the old behavior will resurface. Ask any person who despite years of not smoking picked up one cigarette as to just how quickly they reverted to full scale smoking habit again. Any habit that is also an addiction (smoking, drinking, gambling, etc) must be totally permanently eliminated.

  • Consistent action

The desired habit must be maintained through frequent, repeated action or it will not become internalized and automatic. The more you repeat the behavior, the stronger it becomes. The less you repeat it, the weaker.

So if I want set a new habit of cleaning the kitchen every night before bed, I have to make a point to do it, tired or not. I tell myself how little time it will take, and how good it will feel to wake up to a clean kitchen. It also helps to check it off on a calendar. I write down my goals and accomplishments for each day. Noting what I have done, even if many things on my list did not get done, is a reward in itself. Noting what I didn’t do creates greater urgency to do it the next day. I focus on making progress to avoid getting discouraged.

  • A positive attitude and belief in one’s ability to succeed. 

If you don’t think it is possible, you won’t even try. This is what stops more smokers from quitting – they tell themselves they ‘can’t quit’. You will also need a positive attitude to deal with setbacks, challenges, delays, etc.

If you find yourself with a negative mindset, you can dowse, do EFT, or hypnosis to counter it. Hold a strong intention to let the negative belief go, and the belief you want to hold instead. “I release any belief, perception or judgment that ___ (negative belief). I now choose to believe that ___ (list at least 3 strong beliefs).”

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.

When Goals Lack Luster

Confronting Your Malaise

Sometimes knowing what you want is fuzzy. Perhaps you have a vague feeling of wanting something more. Maybe you feel bored, stuck,  dissatisfied, restless or uneasy in your present situation, job, relationship, home, location. While some people just ‘suck it up’ and push forward with their normal routine anyway, thereby keeping their job and relationships intact, others self-medicate with food, booze, entertainment, etc. Some quit their jobs, leave their spouse, and go off to ‘find’ themselves and explore different options without any serious thought or destination in mind.

But staring your malaise in the face to clarify what is going on, and what you authentically want as opposed to what your family, society and the advertisers always hungry for your wages have programmed you to want, is something every adult needs to address in order to achieve real life satisfaction. Next follows the need to develop and follow a plan to make it happen.

External versus Internal Goals–what do you want?

Many times a person doesn’t achieve or follow through with their goals because they are not excited or inspired sufficiently to undertake the long-term and sustained action required for real achievement. Such goals may sound good. They may bring the approval of friends and family. While such goals may fall into the category of  being ‘practical’, ‘realistic’, socially respected, and lead to financial security, it is still important to tie anything to which you are going to be spending a lot of time, money, effort on doing to ultimately lead to deep, internal satisfaction for you. And while the road to your goal might involve learning and mastering a lot of things that do not interest you, it is doable IF you

keep your WHY in central focus.

For example, when I decided that I wanted to become an opera singer, the training required not only voice lessons, but piano lessons, music theory, learning foreign languages, dance and movement classes, memorization, and practicing vocal scales – the most boring of all. But I had supportive friends that sent me a card that inspired me. The card started with a fund-raising brochure put out by the Metropolitan Opera in NYC. The front pictured a legendary fat soprano with the words “The MET needs you!” To this, my friends put my name. So the card now read “The MET needs you, Roxanne”. This sat on my piano music stand encouraging me to do those ‘stupid’ scales. Oh, as postscript, I did go later to work at the MET first as Executive Secretary to the Orchestra Manager, and later singing onstage in the chorus multiple times with visiting reknown ballet companies. 

What Mama (or Dad) Wants

Many parents insist that their offspring follow goals that they have chosen for them – doctor, lawyer, Indian Chief. These include academic, sports, or creative as well as professional pursuits.

For example, in my youth, many children were unwillingly pushed into music lessons and the daily practice. But even though the goal was external to the child, that child may have later developed their own joy of making music and pursued it willingly, developing enough skill to please themselves and others. And whether music became a professional pursuit later on or not, that forced musical education had multiple benefits in teaching self-discipline, striving for excellence, appreciation for music and creating something of beauty. It might have also become a satisfying hobby or part-time way of making additional money. The same can be true of other externally applied goals.

But long term, trying to live out someone else’s dream or goals for you tends to lack passion and backfire even if on the surface it sounds laudable and your head says that you should want it. Like so many New Year’s Resolutions, the work towards such goals peters out unless it is clearly seen as a means to an end you really want for yourself.

If the driving motivation of ‘nice’ or ‘should goals’ is external and not coming from inside your core self, knowing then how to communicate with your core self is hugely helpful to clarify the direction of your long-term and soul satisfying path.

Obstacles, or why don’t you have what you want already?

Perhaps, after embarking upon your own goals, you run into a problem or conflict you didn’t know you had. For example, in a hypnosis seminar, the instructor asked us all to visualize a personal goal as if we already had achieved it. Mine was to be able to buy a big, beautiful house. Initially thrilled imaging that this house was mine, I then noticed that I was quickly disquieted. Who was going to clean it? I have always disliked housework. I would have to hire people to help me, and this brought up an uncomfortable feeling of having ‘servants’, of being the employer, boss, of being on elevated position over others, telling others what to do. Where did this come from? Had resentment against the ruling class, of master versus slave, boss versus worker, lord versus peasant somehow creeped into my DNA from ancestors past? Had I identified from characters in books, history class or had I had unpleasant experiences in possible past lives? 

Whatever the source, internal conflicts will always sabotage your efforts and have to be resolved.

But even once you know what the conflict is, you may not know how to resolve it. There may be aspects to achieving your objective that involve learning new things, developing knowledge or skills in which you have no interest or actively dislike. You may lack belief in yourself to overcome them. Such challenges may bring up past humiliation or pain.

You have to have a big enough reason to overcome challenges. Why do you want what you want?

Without a clear, driving vision of the end goal and the belief in yourself that you can overcome whatever challenges that come up, you will lose momentum. Obstacles have the potential of putting your dreams into the closet where they gather dust and die if you don’t have the tools, the belief in yourself, the motivation and vision to get through the challenge. Knowing how to brainstorm for solution is a big help here with dowsing being of major assistance.

Journaling for Goal Setting and Problem Resolution

Writing forces you to clarify things. Write down one question at a time and then attempt to answer it. If you don’t know how to dowse, journal. In journaling, write as if you were speaking bluntly with a trusted friend without any self-censorship. Then go back and reread everything you have written, rewriting it ever more concisely until you can sum up the essence into a short paragraph or sentence and you feel comfortable that you have ‘nailed it’. If not, keep writing until you do. 

Challenge negative beliefs

Where you find negative beliefs or judgments, worry or fear, challenge them. Who says you can’t ____? Who says that it’ll never work? Instead, ask the question:

If it could work, how would it work?

Every goal has challenges, and every challenge is a call for you to rise to the occasion and grow. Going through the process leads to increased abilities, confidence, self-esteem and a real feeling of accomplishment.

fullsizeoutput_2cAnother way to resolve your malaise is to just focus on a question in meditation or self-hypnosis and let it roll around in your mind without needing an immediate answer. I do this through the Infinite Intelligence Process, which is a modality I have put together in a book entitled Accessing More – Tapping Into the Eternal, Unlimited Self with the Infinite Intelligence Process.  

Under the section called ‘Connect’, there is the opening phrase, “There’s a part of me that knows _____, and that part is _____ (guiding me now, bringing that information into conscious awareness, assisting me to do this in a way in which I am really pleased, etc.).” Here again, just allow yourself to drift into a meditative/self hypnotic state. Hold the question in mind without needing an answer. Over time, your subconscious mind will bring things to your attention, and synchronicities will occur.

Below are some sample questions to ask: 

  • Why am I feeling ____ regarding ____?  
  • What is underneath this feeling of _____?
  • If I could support myself anywhere, where would I want to live?
  • How could I support myself living in ____ (name of location)?
  • How could I support myself doing ____ while living in ____?
  • If I could support myself doing anything I like, what would be most satisfying to my soul? 
  • What does my spirit want to do ____ (now, short term, long term, as my life’s work)?
  • What kind of work can I do right now that would help me to eventually be able to do/become ____ in the future?
  • What kind of work is most in keeping with my soul desired life’s path?
  • What kind of work combines my main interests and abilities?

Writing Dowsing Charts and Checklists

Finding the right answers starts with asking the right questions. 

In my opinion, dowsing is the fastest way to gather information, determine the underlying dynamics, and solve problems of any sort. Start with writing down your question on the top of a page. Next, brainstorm possible answers in a list format or spread out in a fan or circle format. Include the word ‘other’. 

If you are working with a list, then turn the page to the side so the widest part of the page is on the horizontal line. Without looking at the words, but either with relaxed eyes staring into space, or focused at the bottom of the page, hold the pendulum in your hand and let it pull your hand in the direction of the appropriate line. Then look, and read what it says.

For example, if you were trying to figure out your emotions, you would list possible emotions, including the word other. Then you would ask:

  • What is the main reason I am feeling ____ about ____?
  • What is the next main reason I am feeling ____ about ____?

Continue, until there are no more emotions indicated. 

Next, because emotions come from beliefs, judgments or thoughts, write a list of possible ones, such as “people should (or shouldn’t) do ____”. Then dowse:

  • What is main thought or judgment underneath this feeling of _____?
  • What is next main thought or judgment underneath this feeling of _____?

Keep brainstorming and dowsing until you have a complete picture. Then work on addressing/healing any issues uncovered. Some of this work will entail straight forward problem solving, such as the below:

  • Who can help me with ____?
  • What are my next steps? (dowse out priorities)
  • Is anything preventing me from moving forward with this?
  • How motivated am I to do what it takes to accomplish this goal? 
  • Do I have any fears or limiting beliefs that ___ (are likely to, could) sabotage me in achieving this? If you get a ‘yes’, brainstorm what they might be and dowse out.
  • How can I make this required task easier, interesting or even fun?

Working below the level of conscious awareness

In some cases, you will not identify the cause of your malaise or failure. I then suggest  turning over the healing/resolution to what some call the ‘healer within’ or one’s spiritual dimension. I do this again with the Infinite Intelligence Process as listed earlier, “There’s a part of me that knows… and is doing so now.”

But there is another part to that process that is called “Process”. It installs a stress management program either with dowsing, meditation or hypnosis and then turns the healing over. For example, “From the perspective of my High Self, process and ____ (heal, clarify, release, resolve) ____ in a way in which I am really pleased.” If I am doing this with dowsing, I add “Take action now with the pendulum, and let me know when it is complete.” Both techniques are fully described in my book Accessing More–Tapping Into the Wisdom Within with the Infinite Intelligence Process.

In conclusion,

Overcoming malaise and obstacles in reaching your goals is made infinitely easier when you have a big enough ‘why’, when they are your goals, and you work with your inner resources every step of the way. I look forward to hearing about your own journey.
