Dowsing for Things that go bump in the night

Things that go bump in the night

Do ghosts really exist? After people die, can they continue to hang around and haunt a person or a place? Can entities cause problems for us? Can paranormal activity be real? After dowsing and teaching as my profession for almost twenty years, with a primary focus on personal energy clearing and space clearing, my answer to those questions is a resounding “Yes!” In fact, this aspect of my space clearing work has become my specialty.

After doing thousands of space clearings, both on-site and remote, I find two primary causes of paranormal experiences:

  1. Earthbound Spirits
  2. Interference Energy

Earthbound Spirits

An Earthbound Spirit is a human being who has lived on Earth, whose physical body has died and whose soul has entered the astral plane, but for some reason, the person chooses not to enter the proverbial tunnel and follow the Light to join their loved ones in the Higher Realms. They are too attached to a person, a place, or to physical life itself. They are still somewhat aware of their physical surroundings and can see the physical people around them, but most of those people cannot hear or see them.

Some souls get trapped in the astral plane for many years, sometimes hundreds of years. They do not realize that they have trapped themselves.

Interference Energy

There are many kinds of beings in the astral plane besides Earthbound Spirits. One category of these spirit beings is what I call “non-human entities.” These are beings that have never had life on Earth as human beings, but are somehow related to human activity. I believe that in a very real sense, human beings actually create these “negative beings” with our negative thoughts, emotions, and actions.

When people enter intensely negative states of mind and emotion, because of traumatic life experiences, we can open a crack between the worlds and energies in the astral plane can connect to us. This is what I call Interference Energy. It then greatly exacerbates the negativity that attracted it in the first place. It sets up in certain places in the home that I call “doorways to the astral plane.” Some might call them portals.

Interference Energy then causes all the natural (Earth) energies in that home to be detrimental. It also exacerbates negativity in and between people in the home. Interference Energy interferes with our lives.

Problems Caused by Earthbound Spirits and Interference Energy

As a general rule, people just don’t feel good when these energies are in their homes or offices, and it’s much more common than you might think. Some might not even notice it, but it can cause major problems for more energetically sensitive people, especially for empaths.

Some people feel depressed and anxious when in spaces that are affected by these energies. Physical symptoms of illness will likely be exacerbated. For others, it can actually cause physical symptoms, such as intense headaches, nausea, insomnia, strong pressure in the neck and chest area causing a choking sensation, etc.

Earthbound Spirits and negative beings, or non-human entities, can see and hear us, but, as a general rule, we cannot hear or see them. Children see them more often that adults. Cats and dogs are often reported to hiss or bark at “nothing,” however it seems that they are seeing something that we can’t see.

Paranormal Events

However, in time, if the Earthbound Spirits or the negative beings related to Interference Energy have access to the space for long enough, they can learn to manipulate the physical energy environment and cause paranormal events. They can turn lights off and on, and they sometimes are actually reported to flip switches. They can cause electronic equipment to malfunction or quit working altogether. They can make rapping sounds on walls and ceilings, as well as the sounds and physical vibrations of footsteps, when no one in the physical space is walking. Some clients report smelling strong odors, like cigarette or cigar smoke, a particular perfume, or even more gruesome odors, such as rotting flesh.

Some Earthbound Spirits may simply be trying to let their loved ones know they are there. Others are angry because strangers are living in what they consider to be their home, and they want to drive them away. Even if they mean well, most Earthbound Spirits are frustrated and angry, which causes most of the natural energies in the home to be detrimental.

The negative beings that are given access to the home through Interference Energy often want to instigate fear in the inhabitants of the space. They feed on our fear and negativity; it strengthens and empowers them. This is one of the dangers in working to clear them, as for many people, dealing with these spirits breeds fear, which can actually make things worse.

For the most part, these energy beings do not cause physical harm and are not dangerous. Sometimes my clients are amused and aren’t afraid; others are terrified. They almost all want these activities to stop.

Finding the Energies and Clearing the Spaces

In my housecleaning sessions, both remote and onsite, I deal with these energies almost every day. You can learn how I find and clear them in the full-length version of this article at www.dowsers.com. However, this is not something I can adequately teach you to do in the written word. After working with these energies for many years, I find it takes lots of personal coaching, with much time for practice, before I can get other dowsers to feel confident in finding and clearing these energies. Very few do, especially with Interference Energy. For now, I just wanted to convey that I know that these supernatural occurrences can be real and ultimately can be cleared.

Dowse to Let Go and Move On

Identify, (Catch), Love and Let Go

Identify, (Catch), Love and Let Go

Now that we have (Phew!) moved through 2014 and are ready to spring forward into 2015, it might be a good time to take another look at just releasing any remnants of what we were “releasing” in 2014!   I for one, am ready to to move forward.  So where do we begin?

Catch, Love and Release

Melinda Iverson-Inn, longtime dowser and speaker at the West Coast Dowsers Conference offers this helpful protocol/tool to get started:

 “Man can misuse his free will and do wrong, but that temporary delusion can never erase the mark of immortality and perfection of God’s image imprinted on his soul.”-Paramahansa Yogananda (author of Autobiography of a Yogi)

So you did or said something not-so-nice to someone else. If so, you would not be the first person to exercise free will based on some misunderstanding about the Self (our true being) vs. the little-s self (the conditioned internal story that our ego is convinced is really us).

Our physical/emotional/spiritual reactions to memories of the past tend to be a default setting that we slip back into when these memories push us up against a perceived wall or into a perceived corner with (in our minds) no other possible way out. That default setting is the little ego-self’s way of dealing with memories.

Is there a way to let go? Do you have a plan to release yourself from mental discomfort, guilt, or even torture invoked by memories of your self-judged “bad” deeds or words? Or do you believe, somewhere in your unconscious mind, that you deserve to carry the pain a bit longer?

The choice is always ours, and yet it’s amazing how many of us feel enslaved to emotional, mental, and spiritual memories of our past selves—mostly caused by misunderstandings about who we are, where we have come from, and what we have done. That unconscious lens of misunderstanding is what we use to view/cope with events in the present. Then we’re uncomfortable and we don’t know why.

Sometimes we continue to carry such hindrances because some part of us believes that we deserve to suffer. Sometimes our conscious mind thinks we have resolved the issue, and then we encounter our “victim,” or someone else who shares with us that they have done the same thing to another, and we feel the guilty pain and suffering all over again.

Some believe there may be a karmic imprint that must be resolved.

But whatever the energies at work, you are the only one who can

1) release the suffering, and

2) deal with the condition of continually holding yourself hostage to memories related to unkind thoughts, actions or word exchanges.

Nothing will happen to resolve this situation until you do something about it; the good news is that you already have.

You have, in your infinite and unconscious wisdom (however deeply buried it may be), set yourself up to encounter, in your life, circumstances involving people, places and things that will create the opportunities for releasing and making right your previous memories of wrong.

These circumstances could be anything from your office dynamics to your primary partner, or the children you have or teach. They include the grocery clerk who frowns at you for no apparent reason; the airlines flight attendant who is dismissive or curt; the everyday people you encounter or interact with at the local coffee hangout. These are the people with whom you have a connection because of your particular memories, either from this lifetime or a past one.

Some people with memories that need to be cleared may trigger them by watching certain movies over and over, not realizing that, on a unconscious level, they are trying to release a memory and make right a wrong from the past, or heal a memory about themselves or another.

For example; a person that likes to watch Knights Templar movies over and over may have been a Knight Templar, or have been associated with one, in a past lifetime, and there also may be some associated memory or circumstance surfacing that is asking to be realized (caught), loved and released.

When we evoke such memories, consciously or unconsciously, we may feel as if we are pushed up against a mental wall or into an emotional corner and trapped. We can struggle against them, tell ourselves all kinds of stories, but absolutely nothing will happen to resolve the situation unless we take the right action.

What is the right action?

Here are some of the things we can do when we are overwhelmed, pained, trapped, or otherwise affected by memories of past thoughts and deeds:

  1. Dowse for a pattern. Recognize your creation of the same circumstance over and over, perhaps in variations on the same theme.
  2. Know that it does not matter when, where or with whom a troubling memory took place; it can be healed and released.
  3. If the discomfort stems from a present life situation, make Dowse to amends to the other(s) involved, even if they don’t respond. Their response is not your responsibility.
  4. Break the habit of the knee-jerk response by trying something different. When you watch a type of movie that fascinates you (as in the Knights Templar example above), ask yourself what role you identify with and how you might do it differently today. Perhaps you would put down your sword and walk away. Or Instead of raising your voice, soften it. Or smile/laugh at a frowning/menacing person. Remember, it’s only a movie, and you are here in a new movie of life.
  5. When you meet with someone who triggers an unpleasant past emotional memory, ask: “How may I help you?” Even if you just ask this question silently of yourself, being of service is really the only way out. When you do so, you can transmute a memory of pain into an impulse of kindness.

In the end, what we are suggesting that you do is this: try to identify, (catch) the fact that there is some kind of mind-glitch memory causing your mental difficulty or inappropriate behavior; take the right action (love it) as best you can; and then let it go (release it).

It’s absolutely okay to love and leave the memories that bind you to behaviors and actions that result in your suffering or that of others. We have all behaved as the good, the bad, and the ugly at some point in our multidimensional history. The ability to resolve the results of past behavior is what makes you the aware being you are today.

Remember, as stated by Paramahansa Yogananda,

“…that temporary delusion (those actions) can never erase the mark of immortality and perfection of God’s image imprinted on his (our) soul.”

Thank God and Yippee!!

Dowsing to Enhance the Holidays

Gingerbread Family

Families and Holidays

Submitted by Dick and Karen Tippett

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.

Dowse to Adjust Energies!
Take your favorite dowsing tool.

  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.

Quiet Gratitude & Contemplation   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!

Sustainability: What’s a Sustainable Lifestyle?

lateAfternoonNCal

 

 

 

“If you can keep on using the amount of stuff you’re using in daily life forever, without ever running out, then your lifestyle is sustainable.”

 

How can dowsing help us live more sustainably?   Many of the speakers at the Dowsers Conference in Santa Cruz talked about how dowsing is a natural player in  sustainability.

Master Dowser and Geomancer Richard Feather Anderson offered an advanced dowsing class this year.  Here is more from Richard and his insight on sustainability:

“I think most of us in the dowsing community are consciously awake enough to know that we are currently engaged in non-sustainable lifestyles within a non-sustainable culture and economic system. The exciting thing about dowsers is that we’re already searching for ways to live healthier and in balance, and we don’t need to be convinced to change how we live. But we do need help figuring out what actions we can take personally. And that is what we do every other year at the West Coast Conference: we share ideas about the simple significant actions we can each incorporate into our lives to live simpler, better, more fulfilling lives that also make life better for all beings and critters. This year we will expand our usual how-to menus from the personal sphere to the well-being of our planetary home.

“Sustainability” has become a hot topic these days, which is a good thing for the planet and all us earthlings. It’s also become a buzzword in marketing, which sometimes clouds and confuses the real issues. So here’s a few thoughts I can offer in case you’re not sure what it’s all about, or have trouble explaining it to friends and acquaintances.

Sustainability is actually a very simple idea. I think of it as “treating Mother Earth right.” A phrase I coined says it in another way, “Giving back TO Mother Earth sustains a giving back FROM Mother Earth.” You can think of it as living in balance, or the ecological principle of reciprocity.

When we compost our kitchen scraps and grass clippings or fallen leaves, and spread the decomposed mulch around the vegetable garden or fruit trees, we’re feeding the soil so it can support the plants to grow more food for us to eat. We’re reciprocating, giving something back to Nature so it can keep giving to us.

To know if you are living a sustainable lifestyle, all you have to do is ask yourself, “Am I giving back to the Earth an equal measure for what I receive?” If the answer is yes, what you’re doing is sustainable. If you can keep on using the amount of stuff you’re using in daily life forever, without ever running out, then your lifestyle is sustainable.

Children’s Mystery School: “Passing the Pendulum” for 16 Years

Children and young people are the future stewards of our Planet. They have an innate curiosity, intuitive openness, and learn dowsing with ease.  Learning to dowse expands their awareness and skill sets and, once learned, will continue with them throughout their life.

The West Coast Dowsers Conference in Santa Cruz, CA runs July 3-7;  the Mystery school is offered July 3-5 (Thursday-Saturday).  For More information: www.dowserswestcoast.org

Teaching Kids to Dowse

Teaching Kids to Dowse

For the past 16 years, the West Coast Dowsing Conference has been “passing the pendulum,” through a unique Youth Program for young people ages 6-18.  Experienced veteran dowsers, the same instructors teaching in the Conference, pass their wisdom and skill to the next generation of dowsers, just as has been done for centuries. This experience at the Conference provides a supportive place to learn, to experience and express their intuitive abilities.

Children and parents together find that communication between them improves and that both gain from the closer relationship that develops from the experience.

Just as stories passed from generation to generation teach skills and values, so dowsing, passed from one generation to the next, also teaches skills and values.

Dowsing also has something very basic and vital inherent in it; learning to dowse reveals our connection to consciousness and, with that connection, a responsibility to value and respect self, others and the earth.
Mentoring and teaching young people to dowse strengthens the thread of our oneness.
learning to dowse

Dowsing is our connection to energy. Children may not grasp the concept that “everything is energy” but they quickly accept stories about finding things with L-rods, particularly when we take them outside and they learn that they can do it themselves!

 

 

This year “The Children’s Mystery School” includes

• Beginning Dowsing and Hands On Dowsing

• Messages from Whales and Animal Communication  Willie The Whale

• “Kids CAN Dowse”  A Special Presentation by Katie and JohnWayne Blassingame, father and daughter

• Sacred Geometry  Richard Feather Anderson

• Spoon bending and other mind bending feats  Elizabeth Weedn

• In The Forest with Faeries and Devas      Catriona MacGregor

• The Energy of The Gongs   Faye Henry

• Labyrinths   Clare Hedin and Ophelia

• “Something Special Within”  Karen Ashley Tippett

• Butterfly Dance    Irena

The program is free to all young people up to age 18, when accompanied by a family member attending the West Coast Dowsing Conference.

As one youth program participant said:  “I have used dowsing to find stuff, pass exams and choose my college path, check my energy…”

Geoprosperous* Places – A New Focus for Health

afternoonsun

How do you determine the best place for you to live or be?  Master Dowser Susan Collins offers this article on finding your own Geoprosperous Places.   Susan will teach an advanced course July 3rd, at the West Coast Dowsers Conference in July at Santa Cruz, CA.

 Finding Your Own Geoprosperous Places

by Susan Collins

“I, for one, am sick of looking for things that make me sick. Why is it that the dowsing community is so focused on all things non-beneficial when we know we get what we think about? We know we create our own realities, and the realities we apparently enjoy spending time with include, among other things, homes filled with Geopathic Stress. (“Geo” referring to the earth, “pathic” referring to suffering or inaction.)

Our alarmist culture has spread the word that harmful energies exist everywhere, and dowsers keep finding and naming new types of energy that interfere with our health, wealth and happiness. To be honest, it’s been good for my business, since I spend a good part of every day helping people balance the problems in their environments, but isn’t it time we shifted our collective focus to energies that make us healthy?

If we get what we think about, let’s think about and look for beneficial energy places, something I’ve always referred to as Power Spots. I’ve been inspired to develop a new term for these places that will help and heal us: Geoprosperous Places. (“Geo” referring to earth, “prosperous” referring to, you guessed it, prosperity.)

Let’s focus on finding places that are healthy for us and maximizing the beneficial effects of those places. Let us invite prosperity, love and joy into our lives. Let us experience abundance in all things. Yes of course there may be things around us that are not good for us, but there is a tremendous amount of energy around us that supports us: Geoprosperous energies.

By focusing on the beneficial energies around us, we can become high pressure systems of beneficial energy. Energies which do not serve us will automatically be dispersed in the same way low pressure areas are. Another way to view this is to remember that darkness cannot exist where there is light. Our focus on Geoprosperity will elminate Geopathic Stress.

Geoprosperous Areas

A Geoprosperous area can be as small as your office chair or as large as a remote valley you hike into. You can seek out these beneficial areas in an environment, or you can simply ask them to come to you where you need them. It is a key concept in the energy world that the energies you seek will come to you. So if you’re having a bad day on the job, you can simply ask for the beneficial energies you need to get through the day.

I had the good fortune to be teaching a class for the Canadian Society of Questers in Salmon Arm, B.C. in the fall of 2010. I introduced the concept that not only are there Geoprosperous Spots, but that the energies you need will come to you. An older man in the audience had come into the class using a cane for support; he’d hurt his leg in an accident at work. He took the information I presented to heart, and realized that with each step he took, he could ask for healing energy for his leg. By the end of the class he had tucked the cane up under his arm, and was no longer using it for support.

Power Spots 

The concept of Power Spots was first given to me by the late Bruce Magill. I’ll never forget the Canadian Society of Dowser’s conference when Bruce, a big, intimidating man, solemnly got up on stage and told us he had discovered Laughing Spots – places so powerful that when he stood on them, he was convulsed with belly laughs. He proceeded to demonstrate (and with Brucey, that was something to witness) and his laughter was contagious. When the laughter died down he told us that you could ask for a spot for anything you needed, and I’ve been teaching his concept ever since.

How to Find a Geoprosperous Spot

You can find a Geoprosperous place the same way you find anything else with dowsing. The easiest tools to use are L-rods and pendulums. Geoprosperous spots will come to you if you ask them to.

1. Use a Dowsing Protocol to connect with the best and highest good so that your answers are accurate and helpful. (The Dowsing Protocol I use is at www.dowser.ca/dowsingprotocol.html and is also given in all my books.)

2. If you have a specific issue you want help with, such as “I feel tired”, set your intention to find a spot that will assist you in having an alert state of mind and body. (See examples in the article). State clearly what you are looking for. I often just say something like: “I ask for a spot to give me the most appropriate energy for me at this time so that I may be completely balanced in all aspects of my being.”

 3a. If you are using L-rods:

• Say “L-rods, point to the closest spot that will help me resolve the issue … (state the issue) 

• Walk forward slowly saying “L-rods, cross when I get to the spot that will help me resolve …

• When the rods cross, ask “L-rods, is this the spot?” If NO, ask the rods to point to where you you identified in Step 2.”)

(state the issue you identified in Step 2.”) then  slowly walk in that direction until the rods cross. Confirm the spot.

 3b. If you are using a pendulum: 

• Say “Pendulum, swing to the closest spot that will help me resolve the issue … (state the

• When the pendulum swings clockwise, ask “Pendulum, is this the spot?” If NO, ask the issue you identified in Step 2.”) Walk forward slowly saying “Pendulum, swing clockwise when I get to the spot that will help me resolve … (state the issue you identified in Step 2.”)

To begin: hold the pendulum at the level of your belly button in front of your body and have it swing away and towards your body. Walk slowly in the direction that the pendulum is swinging. If it angles away from your body to the left, go left. If it angles away from your body to the right, go right. As you get close to the Geoprosperous spot, the pendulum will begin to swing clockwise. When you are right on it, the pendulum will swing strongly. pendulum to swing in the direction you walk. Walk forward slowly until the pendulum swings clockwise. Confirm the spot. Sometimes it can be a bit hard to tell from the motion of the pendulum exactly where the spot is. Make your best guess, then confirm with a YES or NO answer by asking if you are standing on the spot that will help you balance your issue.

4. Now that you’ve found the spot, let your hands relax at your sides, let your knees relax a bit, close your eyes, take a deep breath and think to yourself “I ask to receive the beneficial energies available to me at this spot, particularly those connected with … (state the issue you identified in Step 2.”)

5. You may feel something in your body – a motion, a thought, a vision or other sensation. When the experience seems complete, step off the spot. Ask with your tool if there is anything more for you to do at this spot. Ask if there is another Geoprosperous Spot you should experience now.

6. Jot down any thoughts or experiences and keep track of your progress.

Examples of Issues and Solutions    Use the procedures described above to find your own Geoprosperous Spots. Dowse through the sample list below to see which of these statements, if any, are appropriate for you to work with at this time. Adapt the wording of the issues and solutions statements to your own needs and traditions to get the maximum benefit. Remember, when in doubt you can always say something like: “I ask for a spot to give me the most appropriate energy for me at this time so that I may be completely balanced in all aspects of my being.”

• Not enough money: “I ask for a Geoprosperous Spot (GS) to reduce barriers to my prosperity and to increase my experience of financial abundance on an ongoing basis.”

• Lonely: “I ask for a GS to disconnect my reluctance to communicate with people and to increase my ability to relate to others in a healthy way on an ongoing basis.”

• Sad or regretful: “I ask for a GS to help me let go of memories that no longer serve me and to increase my experience of happiness on an ongoing basis.”

• Confused or forgetful: “I ask for a GS to eliminate all thoughts, emotions and energies that interfere with clear thinking and to increase my abilities to recognize truth and value on an ongoing basis.”

• Angry or afraid : “I ask for a GS to disconnect all non-beneficial emotions that interfere with my ability to think clearly and to increase my ability to take appropriate actions in a timely way on an ongoing basis.”

• Hungry or tired: “I ask for a GS to remove my feelings of hunger and fatigue and to maximize the environmental energies available to me so that my body can be healthy and strong until the time I can get the healthy food and rest I need on an ongoing basis.”

• Lost: “I ask for a GS to disconnect all energies of confusion and increase the energies around me that will direct me to a safe place so that I can complete my journey.”

• Sick body: “I ask for a GS to disconnect all non-beneficial energies around every aspect of my being at the appropriate rate so that all the energies around me create perfect health physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and energetically.”

• What’s your issue?: Create your own statement … “I ask for a GS to…”

I invite you to find your own Geoprosperous places. Let me know how it turns out for you! For more information about dowsing and how to dowse, please visit my website: http://www.dowser.ca.

A New Look at Positive Thinking

dandylion copy
Your Attitude has a LOT to do with how your dowsing turns out.  First rule:  be objective.  What’s that?  Well being objective is not being attached to the outcome or the answers your system gives you.  Ed Stillman (Master Dowser, Teacher) always says to ask “I wonder what the answer will be?”
Here Alan Handelsman shares how being positive can lead to curiosity and confidence in dowsing.
Alan Handelsman, dowser, hypnotherapist and musician will be the keynote speaker at the 2014 West Coast Dowsers Conference, (Friday July 4).
A New Look at Positive Thinking, by Alan Handelsman
Imagine a coach in the locker room with his (I know I could use female pronouns, but even in my imagination, it was easier to gain access to the men’s locker room. I encourage you to access whichever works best for you.) team, just before the championship game.
Coach #1 says, “Men, winning is hard, and you have to give 110% out there. And if you do that, and you don’t make any mistakes, I know you can win this thing!”
Coach #2 says, “Men, today one team will win the championship. In fact, one of only two teams has to win it! Let’s go out there and see if that team is US! 
Which coach is more positive? Which would you rather play for?   Now imagine that you are starting a new job or activity, and you have some fears and doubts.Friend #1 says, “Fear is a negative emotion. You shouldn’t be afraid. Dowse the fear and clear it, and then you will be fine!”
Friend #2 says, “I know that starting a new job has unknowns that can be very scary. Of course you have some fears and doubts. Please call me, because I’m really interested in how your first day goes.”
Which friend understands you better? Which friend is more positive?
Much of what passes for positive thinking is simply judging thoughts and emotions (and energies, but I will concentrate more on the first two) to be good or bad, and trying to eliminate the bad. So positive thinkers spend roughly half of their time fighting the negative, and feeling wrong or inadequate if they don’t win that fight.However, I believe that most of our problems with how we think and feel started with trying to fight our own thoughts and feelings. As children, we were told not to feel sad, afraid, or (especially) angry. But we were also taught not to feel joy. (“What’s all the noise in here, keep it down!” Or, “Those are good grades, let’s see if you can keep them up next term.”)  Notice that a lot of what passes for positive thinking puts more pressure on a person, starts from a position of wrong and inadequate, and often doesn’t achieve the desired result.My definition of being positive is saying, “Yes.” Using this new definition, if we are afraid, instead of telling ourselves that we shouldn’t feel that way, we can tell ourselves, “Yes! I feel afraid!” Now that we own it, we can change how we experience any emotion. And we can put any emotion to positive use. (There’s that word again!)If we say yes to our thoughts and emotions – not as truth necessarily, but simply as what we are thinking or feeling – then we are already being positive, and it leads to two things. Curiosity and confidence.   To me, curiosity is a much better motivator that the old positive thinking.   Imagine going into an activity. You can tell yourself one of two things.“I know I can do this.” If a part of you doesn’t really know this, or has doubts, then you may have the vague sense of lying to yourself, which creates greater stress and more doubts. Or you can say, “I’m looking forward to this. I’ve done my work and preparation, and I wonder what my experience will be like.”Which feels more positive to you? Which way allows you to be more confident?  Confidence doesn’t mean you are sure that you can do perfectly. True confidence means that you know you are capable, you are equal to the situation, and whatever the outcome, you will be able and capable. To be confident, you don’t have to be perfect, (which you’ve never been), but simply able to handle a situation, which you’ve already been doing. So maybe that means that confidence isn’t something you need to achieve, but something you already possess that you can recognize, express, and use more and more to your advantage.Yes, true confidence starts with thinking a positive thought. “Yes, this is how I feel right now.”What does all this have to do with dowsing? A lot. It may change the types of questions you ask your dowsing system. For instance, instead of “How can I clear this?” you may ask, “How can I use this?” Instead of,  “How can I achieve more?” you may ask, “How can I more easily enjoy the person I am?”
Think of sitting down to dowse. Now you may be asking yourself, “I wonder if I’m — good/relaxed/hydrated/special/ allowed/capable/experienced — enough to do this well.”
What you are asking is something you may always be asking yourself.   “Am I enough?”
Just for fun, do something different. As you sit to dowse, simply ask yourself, “I wonder what the answers will be?”  Be curious, and know that whatever the results are, you are enough.
