Dowsing As An Intuitive Sense


Written by Maggie Percy

Five Plus One

What is an intuitive sense? When you were little, you learned about your 5 physical senses: sight, smell, sound, touch, taste. But if you were educated in a Western culture, you probably never heard about intuitive senses.

Intuitive senses are recognized by many cultures worldwide, but not surprisingly, they are ignored in Western culture. Western culture is very materialistic and focused on the physical.

An intuitive sense is a common theme

Native cultures sensed and believed in invisible earth energies and spirits. They had a culture of relationship with Mother Earth and all that exists on it, especially the animals and plants.

These cultures accepted that human beings not only have physical senses for gathering information about the physical realm, but what could be called intuitive senses for perceiving the invisible realm and knowing things the rational mind cannot perceive or grasp.

Just as a blind person is deprived of a sensing ability that can be very useful, one who cannot dowse is operating in a handicapped state. The other senses will attempt to compensate, but physical senses can't really do what intuitive senses can. You can survive without them, but the world is so much richer if you use them.

Don't go around with an intuitive blindfold on. Just because most people you know are ‘blind' doesn't mean it's the best way to go through life. Take off the blindfold. Learn to dowse. See how it expands your horizons and contributes to a more balanced, happier life.
