Dowsing is remarkably easy for anyone to do, it simply uses natural kinetic energies engaged through our subconscious perceptions to ‘divine’ or answer questions, for instance about the location of underground water, or the state of our health.
I first tried to use hazel twitches to locate underground water and didn’t know how. So I watched a few YouTube videos to find the technique. I personally prefer to use a pendulum rather than a rod or twitch.
It is really simple, but essential to follow a few rules, such as being relaxed and have no mental clutter, asking the pendulum ‘permission’, asking clear ‘yes’, ‘no’ questions, and ‘thanking’ the pendulum after each question.
You can use anything suspended on a thread as a pendulum, some people like a crystal, or a stone from the garden, or even a metal washer, I prefer a small piece of wood.
It sounds mad, but try it for yourself, and you’ll be amazed [J].

We can access higher frequency vibrational planes of consciousness through varied means- meditation, psychedelic drugs, clairvoyance, medium ship, remote viewing, etc. Some means may be harmful or dangerous for some people, while other techniques require natural gifts, and yet others require a lot of training to become competent in.
Dowsing, on the other hand, is one of the easiest ways to access a repository of unlimited knowledge, referred to by Carl Jung as the “collective unconscious” or the “super conscious mind”. Based on the books I’ve studied and the workshops I’ve taken with master dowser Walt Woods, I get the idea that you are gaining access to this library of unlimited knowledge through your Higher Self – with the least amount of time invested in study and training. Many people think that dowsing is only used for the purpose of finding water or minerals, but dowsing can be used to obtain ANSWERS and information about anything, providing you frame the question correctly.
When you dowse, you are engaged in a dialog with your Higher Self and other spirit guides who are trying to assist you in obtaining the information you seek. You are asking a question in your mind that is most often framed with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer. When you learn more advanced dowsing skills, you can ask for answers that go beyond this framework, but most dowsing questions are answered using the ‘yes’ or ‘no’ format. We use very simple indicator tools in dowsing to help us accurately recognize the information we are trying do obtain. The three most common dowsing tools are 1) the pendulum, 2) the “L” rod, and 3) the “Y” rod. There are other types of dowsing tools beyond these three, but these three are the ones most often used.
1) The pendulum is nothing more than some sort of weighted object hung from a thread, a string, a piece of fishing line, or a light chain. You can tie a paper clip to a short length of sewing thread and Voila, you have a pendulum. You could also tie a threaded nut to a length of light monofilament fishing line and you have yourself a dowsing pendulum. Most dowsers like to use something for a pendulum that’s more fancy looking like a turned brass bob or a crystal pendant, but it’s not necessary. There is nothing magical about the pendulum itself. It’s merely an indicator tool, and nothing more. I will add, however, that certain pendulums (made of certain materials) can be more responsive than an ordinary pendulum (and therefore are preferred for that reason), but all pendulums will respond to your questions, regardless of what they are made of.
2) The “L” rod is usually a length of stiff wire shaped like the letter “L”. Usually, we place tubing on the short leg of the “L” so it will rotate freely when we hold the L rod in our lightly clenched hands. The long leg of the “L” is held in a horizontal position out n front of us and it will swing to the left or right in response to the answers we are seeking.
I was nudged into attending a Dowser’s meeting a few years ago by Merlin Wolf and I thought that I was going to be bored out of my mind, but I couldn’t have been more mistaken. It turned out to be very interesting and highly stimulating. I was learning about things at that meeting that I had no idea existed. Curt Kobylarz, the president of the Orange County dowser’s chapter, was one of the brightest guys I’ve ever met in my life. He seemed to know everything about everything. I also met Dr. Bob Beck there for the first time and he had a lot of fascinating things to say as well. All in all, I loved it! And I looked forward to the next meeting each month.
At Dowser meetings, we occasionally talk about dowsing, but more often the subject is Radionics, Bio-medicine, the Kaballah, Psychic Development, Color Therapy, or similar topics. But I digress…
Let’s talk Dowsing 101
Anyone who’s ever seen someone dowse for water, will typically see a dowser walking along the land with a “Y” shaped thin branch or flexible plastic rod firmly grasped in both hands. When the pointer of the “Y” rod suddenly points downs (or up), that is suppose to indicate where the water is.
Does it really work? You bet it does!
What you don’t see, or more accurately ‘hear’, is what’s going on inside the dowser’s mind. He’s repeatedly saying to himself as he walks along: “indicate if there is water here” or “”point down when I walk over a water vein” or “respond when I reach water”, or something close to that. Who’s he talking to? He’s communicating with a boundless information source known as the “super conscious” which is connected with all living things though the subconscious. Dowsing instruments, such as the pendulum , the aura meter, “L” rods, or the “Y” rod cited above provide a communication interface with our subconscious. Some prefer to think of it as a dialog with the Higher Self or Spirit Guides.
I’ve recently attended my sixth weekend-long workshop with Walter Woods, one of the most amazing men that I’ve ever had the good fortune to meet. Walt is an extraordinary dowser and researcher. He’s also a highly gifted healer who has helped many people release themselves from physical and emotional suffering. Walt’s humble appearance and soft spoken demeanor completely belie the range of knowledge, experiences, and powers that this advanced soul has acquired over the years.
Walt has experienced things that you and I only can read about in esoteric books and articles (and other things that we’ve never read about). He has clearly demonstrated that the power of using the mind alone to heal and fix ANYTHING is LIMITLESS. I have at least 8 notebooks crammed with Walt’s astounding lectures. When you read this stuff, it will knock you over (there are more things under the stars and sun than you can possibly imagine). Many more articles on the research efforts of Walt Woods will appear at this web site in the very near future. Stay tuned!
If you contact the American Society of Dowsers (PO Box 24, Danville, VT 05828-0024) web site: http://www.dowsers.org/
Tel (802) 684-3417; E-Mail: ASD@dowsers.org), they will tell you the location of a Dowsers chapter that is nearest to you. I strongly urge you to go, look, and listen. If you decide to join and become a member, please mention my name (Ken Adachi) on the application form as the person who recommended you to the ASD (and let me know as well).
I mentioned above that I was practically dragged- kicking and screaming- to my first dowsers meeting many years ago by my good friend, Merlin Wolf. I was quite sure that I was going to be bored out of my mind. But surprise, surprise, I quickly realized that I was missing out on some of the best and most advanced “stuff” out there!
I have about 15 books on dowsing, but the best dowsing “course” that I’ve ever taken was contained within a 24 page booklet put together by Walt called Letter to Robin. This incredible booklet can teach anyone to be an accomplished dowser. Highly recommended.
I was contacted by a man named Chris Gozdzik who makes unique and attractive pendulums. He asked me if I would check his pendulum out, so I did and found it to respond very well. If you are interested in checking one out yourself, you can find them all described at the link below. I have no financial arrangement with Chris and told him that I don’t sell advertising space at my web site, but if I liked his pendulum, I would give him a plug on this page.
