Dowsing rods are one tool to help us access our intuition as well as information from the Collective Unconscious, also known as the Akashic records, the Source, the Divine, or higher realms. This is essentially where all knowledge from past, present, and future timelines, are kept.
Although initially skeptical, I found that I had a skill for using rods to gather information as well as to detect energy from people, objects, and spaces. I incorporated the use of dowsing into my feng shui practice back in 2008. And now I am often hired to dowse client's spaces, both residential and commercial structures, as well as land.

Although dowsing is an ancient art I have been asked by many people to share some basic information about dowsing and how to use dowsing rods. Below is a brief post to address these questions.
As I mentioned above, dowsing is a wonderful tool to access knowledge that is not accessible through other means.
Traditionally, dowsing was used to locate water underground for wells and irrigation. It is still used to this day and although I am not requested to do this often, I have found that dowsing is great for finding potable underground water.
Dowsing can help determine where there is negative earth energy, such as black line streams and ley lines.
Negative earth energies can impact health in body, mind, and spirit. You may feel that there is something not right at home or work. Dowsing can confirm this as well as give you options of where to move furnishings for optimal health. By locating and acknowledging these energies you have started the healing process.
If you are a holistic healer, you can incorporate dowsing into your practice to more fully work with your clients and their spaces. As mentioned above, negative earth energy can be harmful to your clients. Geopathic stress analysis (the term I use for my work) will greatly contribute to their healing.
And there is also positive energy that we can harness, once we know where it is located.
How do you hold dowsing rods?
Everyone has their own way, but I will share my technique. I stand in a comfortable stance (feet hip width apart and knees slightly bent). I hold the rods as per the photo to the right. Notice that my arms are bent, elbows resting on my hips. My arms are shaped like an L. Rods are parallel to the earth, and slightly (I mean very slightly) tips turned down.
Should I program my rods for yes/no responses?
Many people, including myself, have programmed their rods for yes/no responses. For instance, my "yes" is when the rods cross and "no" is when the rods turn outward, the opposite direction. I program them by moving the rods purposely in those directions several times, saying, "this is a yes (or no)."
Some people prefer to ask their rods for what a yes and no response will look like. It's up to you.
Then test the yes/no responses by asking some questions that you know the answer to, such as "Did I have oatmeal for breakfast this morning?"
What do you ask?
It depends on what I'm doing. When dowsing for negative earth energy, I ask for the rods to show me the presence of negative energy lines and where they are located, as well as how strong they are. I can employ a series of questions that will give me more detailed knowledge about the source of the energy and what I can do to remedy it. r
If I am simply tapping into knowledge
In using the rods, you will ask what a "yes" response is and what a "no" response is, so that you can ask yes/no questions. It's different for everyone.
What if I get strange responses?
If you are getting odd responses to your questions, you may need to put the rods aside for another day. It may mean you need to get more hydrated (go have a glass or two of water). It may mean that your head isn't clear and your are not ready. It can also mean that you are asking things that you should not be asking.
You may ask the same question multiple times and you will eventually get different responses.
When I started to learn dowsing I sat for hours one night on my couch asking question after question. It was like an interrogation! Read more below about "Misuse of dowsing."
Why are my rods spinning around in circles?
That can happen for a few reasons. (1) The tips of the rods might be upward rather than slightly downward, or (2) Your energy might be a bit unsettled or chaotic at the moment. Check your rods and how you are holding them. If you try again and it still spins, put the rods aside and come back to them later when you feel more calm.
Do you need a pair of dowsing rods to dowse?
No. In fact, I often teach workshops on dowsing and we fashion a pair of L-rods from a wire hanger. Dowsing rods are but one tool. I also use a pendulum. And there are other similar tools that do the job.
Can you tell me more about the process?
You need to be centered and have good intentions. Most have specific meditation practices they use prior to dowsing since you are connecting with the Universal Consciousness. You should also be well hydrated and then ask for permission to dowse. You also need to be very specific on what you are asking for. And it's very important that you do not ask questions that are emotionally charged. You must be prepared, and okay, for all possible responses you will receive.
Aren't I moving the rods?
Well, yes and no. The way I understand it, when we are centered and prepare ourselves to dowse, we are tapping into the Collective Unconscious, or field of energy, that has all knowledge. Our higher selves know the answers and subconsciously transmits the responses through to us. Our body picks up these electrical impulses and moves the rods.
I know this can be the hardest part to understand and to have confidence in. But when we focus on the question at hand, rather than the movement of the rods we have the best results.
Misuse of dowsing
As with any energy work, it can be misunderstood and misused. Dowsing rods, just like any other metaphysical tool, are not to be used as a parlor game. There is a process that you need to follow. Under the right circumstances, it can attract negative spirits.
I personally don't have any concern about negative spirits. Before I dowse, or do any type of spirit connection, I always state my request to be protected by higher beings of light. And I come to this work with positive intentions only, from a heart-centered place.
Also, you must be careful not to ask emotionally-charged questions. If you are not prepared to hear all possible answers to your question, then do not ask!
Do not ask the same question over and over again. You are bound to get different responses because you are not being disciplined and respectful in tapping into this knowledge. You are not coming from a heart-centered place.
