Using Dowsing Rods to Detect Your Energy

I use dowsing rods all the time, to help clients determine where there are areas of geopathic stress. But dowsing rods have many more uses!

Of course, dowsing was first originated to help find underground water sources for wells. While I’ve never used them for that (I may one day!) I have used them to help “view” energy fields.

It is so important to prepare yourself before you use your rods. You don’t want to just pull them out and starting using them.

First, sit in a comfortable chair, close your eyes and take several deep breaths.

Alternate Nostril Breathing

Second, I like to use a yogic breathing technique to connect both sides of my brain – the intuitive and the rational side. Place your right thumb on your right nostril and breathe in on your left nostril to a count of 4. Then open right nostril and close left nostril with ring finger and breathe out for 8 counts (slowly). Now breathe in the right nostril (one you just exhaled with) to 4 counts again. Close up your right nostril and breathe out the left. Go back and forth several times. It’s very simple and effective for calming the mind and heart.

Then, in your mind, ask the question, “How is my energy field now?” If the rods open outwards, your energy field is likely to be large and open to receiving. This is a good time to open up to those around you, make difficult sales calls, do those tasks that require you to connect with others.

If the rods close toward you, you are likely to be closed, a much smaller field and are more vulnerable at the moment. Better to stick with simple tasks and/or those that involve solo work like house cleaning, paying bills or writing. You can also do things that you enjoy and are passionate about. Those tasks are likely to open your heart and mind to other activities that may be more challenging for you.

Come back to the rods later in the day. Don’t be disheartened. We all experience our fields opening and closing. It is a healthy state of being. We would not be well-served by our fields if they were perpetually in an open, expansive mode. There is value in both open and more closed. We need to find our own harmony between the two – the yin and the yang!
