Dowsing and religion often have head-on collisions. Why is that?
Some people who are very religious (defined as strict adherents to a particular collection of religious dogma) may feel threatened by dowsing. Historically, religions have often punished people for dowsing, divining or using their intuitive gifts in various ways.
Some religions have taught their followers that dowsing is a crime against God, and you will be punished for using it. At the very least, they suggest it may endanger your soul.
Yet, historically, some of those same big religions allowed their priests or high priests to use dowsing, divining and other similar methods. Just Google ‘Jesuits and dowsing' to see how one religion handled this.
Dowsing and religion often clash
When you have authority denying a powerful tool to the masses but reserving it for a special group it has control of, then you know something is up.
Any traditional, established authority is happier having a following of non-thinking believers who feel powerless and dependent.
Dowsing is the single most empowering tool you will ever find. Once you start thinking for yourself, you are bound to question things you once took for granted. You will also begin to see that not everything you assumed was true, is true.
If, like me, you get questions from friends and loved ones who are religious, don't argue. Most people are not ready to truly think for themselves, and that's ok. But don't let anyone tell you that you are better off letting someone else choose for you or do your thinking.
