Blink Dowsing


Written by Nigel Percy


Blink Dowsing (aka Stealth Dowsing!)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    I’ve been using “Blinking” dowsing for more than a decade. I progressed from body dowsing, using my body as a pendulum, when my daughters said it was embarrassing to see me sway in the veg isle at the supermarket. ha ha ha

      Always can be a little embarrassing doing that sort of thing :-) Blink dowsing is just so much easier (and quicker!), isn’t it?

    I have been using Blink Dowsing for many years. So glad to see that you have posted this! I totally agree that when out in the public it is much easier to put my hand over an item and just blink.

      When we teach dowsing, we always start off with deviceless dowsing (including blink dowsing) so people get used to not relying on the tool.

    This sounds a little bit like muscle testing. Looks like one blink is a yes and two blinks is a no for me.

      Muscle testing is simply dowsing using your body or someone else’s, that’s all. It’s a form of deviceless dowsing.

        Ah ok. Wow interesting. Thanks for informative articles and vids.

    I am so surprised that the blinking is so easy! I read about it in your free e book and took to it like a duck to water. I have done instrument dowsing and body swaying for years. Now I can just blink, not so obvious. My yes is 4-5 blinks and no is always 1 blink.

      As you say, people are often surprised that blink dowsing is a) possible and b) so easy! Thanks for letting us know your experience.
