In The Beginning
When you were learning to dowse, chances are you were told how to hold a pendulum, how to ask a question and even what sort of response was a ‘yes' or a ‘no'. And all the class, assuming you were in a class, were told the same thing.
Which is fine, except….
The problem, as I see it, is that nobody is the same as anyone else. We all think and act differently. We all have different strengths and weaknesses, yet we are all expected to do the same thing and get the same result. (Don't get me started on education!!)
Learning to Dowse…YOUR way!
It's for this very reason, that you are an individual, that neither Maggie nor I say that you HAVE to dowse in one certain way, following one specific set of instructions, as though you were a computer to be programmed.
Sure, we'll suggest certain things, certain approaches, and try to steer people away from doing things we have discovered to cause problems in one way or another, but as to the actual dowsing…. We try to let everyone get to their best result going down the road they choose. For us, that's what learning to dowse is all about.
Anyone with even a tiny interest in the brain and the way it works will have discovered that what goes on inside our heads, the way we see and interact with the world, can be hugely different between two people.
In dowsing terms, that could mean that, where I get a sensation in the back of my head telling me that I'm in the groove, so to speak, for you, it could be you hear a sound, or your right knee aches briefly. It could be anything at all. But the point is, no matter what happens to you when you dowse, it is you who is aware of it, sensing it.
So, next time you hear of the perfect and foolproof way of getting the right answer, of dowsing the ‘correct way', by all means give it a try. It might work for you, for a while. It might not ever work for you.
But, and here's the beautiful thing, it might get you thinking about what does work….for YOU!
