Does Dowsing Work?
(Transcript below, if you prefer to read)
This question is nearly always asked by those who haven't yet got into dowsing. Sometimes, it's a polite question asked by someone who is totally skeptical about the whole thing.
The implication behind it is that they are really wondering whether dowsing is 100% accurate. And, maybe that's exactly what you have in mind and that's why you are watching this video.
But, if that's what you are asking, then it's not really a fair question. After all, if I were to ask you whether your car worked all the time, you would say, yes. But what about that one time when it didn't start? Or when you had a puncture, or ran out of gas? These are times it doesn't work.
It's pretty much the same with everything in life. Nothing is 100% certain. Or, as Benjamin Franklin said, “In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes“.
So, if we accept that as true, then it's a little easier to give a fair answer to the question, ‘does dowsing really work?'
First, take water dowsing. It's about the best known use of this simple, natural skill. Not everyone is great at finding sites for water wells. But, amongst those who are good at it, their percentage success rate is in the mid to high 90's. That's pretty phenomenal.
Of course, if you are skeptical about water dowsing, then you're not really interested in finding out whether dowsing works or not. I have no interest in trying to persuade anyone that dowsing works. You have to come to that conclusion yourself.
Of course, for myself and Maggie, this is really a no-brainer. We obviously believe that dowsing works because we have seen the results of it so often in our lives. We've also seen it being used successfully by many of our clients.
The only way you are going to get an answer which makes sense for you is to actually try it for yourself.
But, if you are going to try it, then be fair and go about it in the right way. That is, learn to ask a very specific question and then get into the proper dowsing state, which is a state of emotional detachment, and then dowse.
Once you can do those things successfully, you will be in a better position to answer for yourself the question about whether dowsing works or not.
From the success of many, many people over time and around the world, it would seem true to say that dowsing is a simple and natural skill which is accessible by every human being on the planet. Whether or not anyone chooses to use it or not is, of course, up to them.
I hope you do use it for yourself!
