Dowsing has been used for centuries as a means to find water, minerals, and other underground things. In the old days it was common to see people walking around in a field with a forked tree stem in search for underground water. Dowsing, also called “water witching” is still used today. Cities, large companies and even the military hire dowsers.
All spiritual workers can benefit from dowsing. We can use it to dowse (look) for spirit activity in the home, find negative energies, potential dangers, and we can even use dowsing to find “power spots” in our home. These power spots are particular areas of the home that are most beneficial to us....a spot we are stronger in....more powerful in....more comfortable in....more in tune...more aware......more spiritually linked.....and more intuitive.
Although there are several methods (tools) we can use for dowsing two of my favorite are the pendulum and the L rods. Most people have heard of a pendulum and have either tried it a couple of times or use it on a daily basis.........fewer people have heard of the L rods and many have never tried it before in their life. So today I am going to give you a lesson in L rods and how to easily construct your own set.
L rods are simply two bent pieces of metal which work with the surrounding energy and with your own subconscious. Like the pendulum you can ask a question and direct the way you want them to answer such as “cross together when you are over my power spot” or “open away from each other when you are over my power spot”. You then start walking and when they have found your location of power they will cross over each other or separate from each other.
Okay, let’s make a pair of L rods. Go to your closet and select two wire coat hangers that are fairly straight. Get some wire cutters and snip off the long wire at the bottom (the long eng where you would hang your pants). Bend one end of each rod into a 90 degree L shape. For comfort and to make sure the rods swings freely in your hands make sure to cut the short end of the wire (grip) to hang at least one inch below your hand when holding them. I like my hand grips to be about 5 inches long and the long end (pointer) to be about 15 inches long. Now you got yourself a set of L rods.
Hold them loosely in your hands with the top (pointer) wire tilted slightly downwards and spin them around to make sure they move freely, loosen up your grip if they don’t. You want the rods to easily spin in your hands in order for them to answer you. Get comfortable holding them. Walk around the house so that you get use to walking with them. Once you feel comfortable with the rods it’s now time to program them.
Stand up straight and hold the rods in front of you with the tips slightly pointing down. This will help to control them from swinging all over the place. Concentrate. Tell the rods “swing outwards for no” and deliberately swing the rods away from each other with each of the rods pointing away from you. Say “this is no”. Now bring the pointers to the search position (straight out in front of you). Now say “swing inwards and cross over each other for yes”. Deliberately swing the rods inwards until they are crossing (inwards). Say “this is yes”. Now ask “show me no” and wait for the rods to respond. Then say “show me yes”. This may take several attempts at programming before you get them to answer you....but they will.....keep trying. Soon they will begin to swing on their own showing you the yes and no answer.
Once the rods are moving on their own you can begin practicing searching for little things. Try having someone hide a coin under a rug and allowing the rods to tell you where it is. Ask the rods to cross over each other when they are over the coin. Then go on to asking the rods to show you where your power spots are in the home, where there is spirit activity, etc... Maybe you want to go out into your front yard and search for underground water lines or electrical lines. Some people dowse their backyards to find the best place to plant a garden. The dowsing possibilities are endless.
