Dowsing Treasure

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Dowsing treasure books have been written, armchair dowsers have shared their pearly words of wit, and newsletters have been spewed for years to deliver the silver bullet for dowsing treasure. Dowsing treasure on a scale of 1-10 is a 10 in difficulty, whereas finding an underground stream of water for a well would be a 2. Having declared the difficulty of dowsing treasure, let me make a laundry list of conditions that must be met before you start dowsing:

    Find treasure 100% accurate.

    • There has to be a valid need for recovery of the treasure, dowse to see if your “need” is valid,
    • Permission from the “System” has to be given to recover the treasure, If the answer is no, FORGET ABOUT IT, move on to another treasure,
    • Dowse to see if your treasure question is phrased correctly, (use definitions such as, “treasure that is worn on the neck and that is silver in color”), BE SPECIFIC,
    • If someone has died over the ownership of the treasure, this issue needs to be dealt with,
    • When searching a map or the field, the right tools need to be used at the right time, (is it a good time to dowse?),
    • The question is always phrased, “treasure”, never about gold, (silver, currency or jewelry) as there is sub-atomic gold practically everywhere on the planet. You can get a false hit on sub-atomic particles, be right that it is gold and never be able to see it without a microscope… or you may detect an unprofitable vein of gold that has nothing to do with your treasure quest,
    • While doing a sweep, ask a structured, qualifying question such as, “Let the rod lock on Aunt Pearl’s buried treasure.” Then, while walking in the direction of the rod lock, ask, “let the rods cross over the treasure Aunt Pearl buried.”
    • Here is the Silver Bullet: If your mind wanders for a fraction of a second, start the sweep or search over! Stay focused and BLOCK ALL ITEMS FROM YOUR MIND EXCEPT THE ITEM SEARCHED FOR.
    While dowsing treasure, your conscious mind wants to please you and will automatically substitute items that will result in “dry holes”. You must train the mind to do as it is told.
    • Keep a Journal and record all your failures, without them you are not learning.

Dowsing treasure can be fun. Broaden your definition of treasure, learn the training required to keep your mind focused, only on the dowsed target. Practice often, this would require you to make a test plot (bury items that you will eventually search for). Don’t expect to read this explanation and rip up the mother lode on your next outing to the field. Successful Dowsing Treasure events will climb to the 90 percentile IF you follow all the suggestions above and never give up. Once you learn the correct way to address the system, all dowsing questions will have a degree of difficulty of “2”, including Dowsing Treasure!

Dowsing Witness

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Dowsing witness empowers the accuracy of the answer to a dowsed question. A dowsing witness is usually a sample of the item dowsed for if the dowser is trying to locate a lost, missing or suspected item or person. Examples of dowsing witness would be a key held in the left hand while using a pendulum in the right hand. Another dowsing witness would be a lock of hair or article of clothing from someone or a pet that was lost. A coin, a ring, a vial of water, a piece of wood, or leaf from a tree could all be dowsing witness paradigms.

The dowsing witness is usually used by dowsers as an aid to improve the accuracy of their answers to dowsed questions. Although dowsing witness is an aid for beginners, some seasoned dowsers never cease to use the dowsing witness if a witness is available.

Recently an “accuracy witness” was discovered while researching great master dowsers of the past. Dowsers are constantly dowsing and building better dowsing tools. The Accuracy Dowsing Witness™ was found as a drawing and a metal sample while exploring the stored files of one of America’s great Master Dowers of yesteryear and is nicknamed the “Butterfly Witness™”. The Accuracy Dowsing Witness™ is positioned in the hand or viewed like a butterfly. The question most dowsers are asked is, “What is your percentage of accuracy?” The newly discovered Accuracy Dowsing Witness™ can improve your accuracy of an asked question by up to 30%. Note: an improperly phrased questioned will not be helped by the accuracy witness. (Always first dowse if your question is phrased properly.) The solid copper “witness” fits in the palm of your hand with or without another witness for the MOST COMPLETE accuracy aid for dowsers in 100 years.

Find that elusive treasure 100%

The Accuracy Dowsing Witness™ can be used in the hand or simply laid upon a map while map dowsing for greater accuracy. We have reports that when the Accuracy Dowsing Witness was placed on the tip of a bait chamber dowsing rod, that the sensitivity and strength of “lock” increased.

The Accuracy Dowsing Witness™ is approximately 1 ½ inches wide and almost 1 3/16 inches high and shaped like a butterfly. This long lost solid copper dowsing witness is now available post paid for only $17.99!

Dowse this question now,Is the Accuracy Dowsing Witness™ the best dowsing witness on the market today?” Satisfaction Guaranteed!

Map Dowsing for Lost Pets

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Map Dowsing for Lost Pets has been an option for pet owners that is often overlooked in the moment of strife. If you are the pet owner, your time and effort will be best spent calling a dowser who has been successful locating pets by map dowsing. Ask the dowser if they have successfully dowsed for lost pets. Be prepared to to find your pet. Be realistic, the dowser may find the pet but the dowser can not change the fate of the pet if it has expired. Ask the dowser if there is a fee. If there is NOT a fee, treat the dowser to flowers, a gift certificate to dinner, or make a donation to their favorite charity, but DO NOT EXTRACT THE GIFT of the dowser as if they owe you their time and energy. It takes time for map dowsing, research and followup… after all, someone else may lose a pet in the future and need this experts’ help. If you love your pet, pay to find them, if nothing else, make a comparable donation and tell the dowser to “pay it forward” to the next pet owner who may not be financially able to pay!

If you are a dowser just learning to dowse, there are a couple of suggestions that will help your map dowsing, enabling you to find the lost pet.

    Ask these questions in order for better accuracy:
    1. Is this a good time for map dowsing? Answer: Yes, (then continue). If not, ask again in 15 minutes.
    2. Will the pet return home on its own? Answer: Yes, (Determine when). If no continue to #3.
    3. Is the pet recoverable? Answer: Yes,
    4. Is the pet recoverable by the owner? Answer: Yes. If not, is the pet recoverable by someone the owner knows?
    5. Is the pet’s heart still beating?
    6. Now start your map dowsing, and ask : Is the pet within the boundaries of the map you are using?
    7. If the pet has been gone for more than a few hours, each time the pet rests for a period of time, there is resonate energy at that spot that could give you a false location, be sure and ask if the pet left this location and has moved, or is moving away from this spot.

Accurate map dowsing can locate your pet. The confident dowser can only relay the answer to the map dowsing questions asked. If the map dowsing determines that the pet is unrecoverable, a later map dowsing will not change the answer. Map dowsing always works best when dowsed quickly after the pet’s disappearance. Use of the pet’s name is highly recommended while map dowsing in order to suppress all other pet energies that may be lost in the same area.

Map dowsing for lost pets, lost individuals, lost articles or lost treasure is done by the master dowser, at home, without an audience and usually in the quietest time of the day for the dowser. Don’t expect a map dowsing answer while you wait on the phone. Some dowsers use a witness, (toy, garment, picture of the pet or collar) to hold in one hand while swinging the pendulum in the other hand, to better focus on your pet. As your dowsing experience grows, you will find that your mind will not need a witness while map dowsing and your accuracy is proficient without a witness.

Radiesthesia, Dowsing

Tuesday, October 06th, 2009

Radiesthesia, Dowsing today, using a newly formed word of 1930 is derived from two words, “radiation” and an old word “aesthesia” which is defined as “perception by the senses”. Some physicians have adopted the word radiesthesia to apply only to the dowsing of health problems in their patients. Chiropractors have also adopted radiesthesia to help locate areas of the spine and nerves that are the origin of the patients problems. Few patients are aware that some doctors and chiropractors use radiesthesia as part of their method of diagnosis.

Radiesthesia is not restricted to the medical industry. Since scientist revealed that all matter is made up of moving particles, the conclusion is that all matter vibrates. The discovery of “all matter vibrates” reveals that each type of matter in physicality emanate their own vibrational frequency. The example is: a clad dime has a different vibration than a solid silver dime. Yet, two solid silver dimes would have relative similar vibrations. Radiesthesia allows for the vibrational frequency of a single item to be received by an antenna (dowsing rod) and identified by the radiesthesiologist (dowser).

Christopher Columbus records using radiesthesia methods on his quest to find America. On cloudy or foggy days, in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, when it was difficult to use the quadrant, a steel plate was placed on the deck of the ship, the navigator stood on the plate while rotating in a circle (in place) with a dowsing rod held above his head. The rod would lock on magnetic North. This method of radiesthesia that incorporates the radiation of the steel plate and the perception of the senses of the navigator were used as early as the Egyptian Pharaohs and Chinese Dynasties. Radiesthesia is a relatively new word for an ancient method of identifying vibrational frequencies of any matter, dead, alive or inanimate.

Regardless if you encounter radiesthesia or dowsing methods in use, you are seeing vibrations received by a person and identified according to their experience. Almost everyone has the ability to receive the vibrations of any object, above or below ground, but only a few have the hundreds of hours of practice, research and study to exceed 90% accuracy.

Radiesthesia is most commonly thought of as “dowsing for water”. Man’s lack of understanding usually causes mistrust, doubt, false labeling and even the labeling of “crazy” and “heretics”. Galileo was labeled as such when with his telescope “tool” he announced that the earth was not the center of the universe. Gamma rays, x-rays and ultra violet were pooh poohed until science revealed the “tools” to convince the world that these UNSEEN light rays existed. From the beginning of time the moon was untouchable. Even today we have a few worldwide that don’t believe we really landed on the moon. Misunderstanding or unbelief does not change the facts. Radiesthesia is an English word derived from the French and incorporated just recently into our language. A German word “to locate” was first used for water dowsers. The word sounded similar to the English word “witch”, hence the misnomer was formed and has been responsible for mistrust and widespread misunderstanding even today.

Radiesthesia is a progressive scientific method that needs more study to perfect the methods already in use. A French Priest, Abbe’ Mermet (1866-1937) is to Radiesthesia as Mendel was the father to the study of genetics. Mermet spent 40 years testing, documenting and proving that Radiesthesia was scientifically explained and not of an occult. Mermet’s book, Principles and Practice of Radiesthesia was printed in English in 1957. The vibrations are there, the other 90% of our unused brain is there, and the combination of the two will eventually be as obvious as, “Oh, I think I’ll turn on the invisible energy to light my room instead of a candle…”

Dowsing Success

Friday, October 02nd, 2009

Dowsing Success is sought after as the “Rosetta Stone” to all unknown subjects. The lack of Dowsing success is the most common reason new dowsers lose interest and doubt the ability of any dowsing method. The question usually asked of a dowser is, “what is your percentage of accuracy?” Dowsing success can be explained in 7 parameters.

    • Dowsing success is higher in children beginning to learn dowsing over adults,
    • Correctly used dowsing protocols increase dowsing accuracy,
    • Solitary dowsing diminishes distractions and increases accuracy,
    • Morning dowsing after a restful night will increase dowsing accuracy,
    • Subject research can increase dowsing percentage of correctness,
    • A master dowser mentor can critic your dowsing, causing more accurate dowsing
    • Practice every day is the best way to improve dowsing success.

Dowsing success can be measured in percentages that vary everyday.
One should always start their dowsing session with the questions of:

    1. “Is this a good time to dowse?”
    2. “What is my percentage of accuracy today?”
    3. “Is my dowsing question phrased properly?”
    4. “Is there a valid need for this answer?”
    5. And end each query with “Was this answer the Universal Truth?”

Dowsing success can be diminished by fatigue, solar flares, the earth’s magnetic disturbances, invalid need to know, poorly phrased questions, inability to stay focused, preconceived conclusions, wishful thinking and inexperience.

Dowsing success can be explained as percentage of correctly answered questions. The law of averages is 50/50. A novice dowser following a detailed dowsing protocol will increase to 65/70%. A master dowser will be consistently 85/90%. A dowser doesn’t use a supernatural link to the architect of the universe, but does use the Universal Library. A dowser is not a prophet or seer and does not “witch”. When you go to sleep at night with a problem that you have no prior knowledge and desiring a solution, then wake up in the middle of the night or the next morning or a few mornings later with the “answer”, where did that solution come from? We propose all knowledge from the beginning of time is stored in the “Universal Library” and that dowsers use a portion of the 90% of previously unused brain, while awake, to tap into this knowledge base.

Dowsing success can always be improved upon. If you are searching for “items”, build a test plot. This test plot can be underground or inside a structure. Have a trusted person hide items and LEAVE THEM THERE! You will never know for sure what is hidden as you will not “uncover” the hidden items. Use your “L” rods or “Y” rods to search for the hidden items each day to improve dowsing success. (You may hide the items yourself, if you first place a cover over the item that will make it similar in size and shape to all other items hidden, then “shuffle” the items so that you truly do not know what item is hidden where.) Remember, dowsing success comes with practice, practice, practice.

If you have an item or treasure you want located, send a request in the form below to have the item dowsed for you. Dowsing success at its best!
