The holidays are an emotional time for all of us. Some, because we feel alone and want to be with others. Some, because we simply want to be alone, with no demands on us. Some, because we are with family….
No doubt this is because of the very close relationship that we have with our family, whether they are relatives or our chosen, extended family; perhaps because we know them so well. Certainly, when you spend years of your life with someone, the closeness can drive their idiosynchronies deep under your skin, only to emerge when you receive clothes that are the wrong size (again!) or the turkey isn’t perfectly done, or someone wants succotash instead of string bean casserole, or some of them are late (as usual) or all the men are watching football and have shoo’ed all the kids into the kitchen where the women are doing their best to hold it all together amid the stresses of finishing a perfect feast!
It is at these times that the desire to be a happy family together meets the frustrated desire to express one’s self openly and freely.
Dowsing provides an opportunity to transform all of the potential stressors into positive enjoyment of each other, to experience each ones’ idiosyncrasies as simply defining who they are, or just to enhance our own enjoyment of the season no matter what we do, where we are, who we are with or who we aren’t with.
Ask: “Can I, may I, should I dowse to clear all of the non-beneficial energies between all of those who will be present for the holidays and that will interfere with all of us enjoying each others’ company?” when you get a “yes” answer to all three questions, let your tool work in the direction that clears energy (usually counter-clockwise) and ask that all of the energy that is non-beneficial to everone’s enjoying being together be neutralized and scrambled.
Let your tool work until it indicates that all of the energy has been neutralized/scrambled. This is usually indicated by your tool moving in the “yes” position.
Now ask the universe to take the neutralized and scrambled energy and to transform it to the highest, best and most appropriate level to facilitate everyone having a happy, fun, stress-free time together. The tool should work in the direction that strengthens and amplifies energy (usually clockwise) until all of the energy is transformed into energy that is beneficial to the group’s enjoyment of each other. Your tool should again be moving in the “yes” position, indicating that the task is complete.
Another way to “dowse” for a pleasureable time is to ask that all of the disharmonies between those who will be there come into harmony with themselves and each other. Let your tool work in a strengthening or clockwise direction until it signals that it is complete by going to the ‘Yes” position.
Yet another way is to ‘hire the heavens.” Ask that the most appropriate free-choice, white light, positive side being be provided to you to assist you so that you can enjoy a pleasant, stress-free holiday, or good time of your choosing. Ask them to do specific tasks. This is particularly useful when you are overwhelmed, or are looking for special gifts for people.
It is best to do these dowses at least one day, preferably two days before the get-together. Another very good thing to do is to perform the same clearing on the energy of the room/house where you will all be getting together.
There is also great comfort and much joy to be had in simply sitting quietly and talking to those with whom you have been close and who are no longer physically among us. I miss my brothers at this time of year, and it is good to simply think of them and remember.
On behalf of the West Coast Conference, we wish you the most wonderful holiday and the happiest of New Years!
