What is Dowsing?

Dowsing is an Egyptian technique to find out answers of questions. Dowsing means pendulum. After intuition healer has to hold pendulum in fingers and ask questions. Pendulum then moves right or left, or clockwise or anticlockwise. There are different codes to understand answers.

This is not healing therapy, directly dealing with our body or soul. This is a 'tool' to understand future or past of any person, or any work. In India we use Jyotish Shastra to know success ratio of any work, where in Egypt people use Dowsing.

What can we do with Dowsing?

This technique was actually developed by Egyptians to find out water source in desert. In India, this technique is used for finding out water spot before taking bore-well. If practiced good, one can find out Treasure inside the ground. This may be ancient statue, gold, silver, copper anything. Dowsing is also used to find out misplaced things in our house, like gold ornaments, important papers etc.

Dowsing as practiced today may have originated in Germany during the 15th century, when it was used in attempts to find metals. As early as 1518 Martin Lutherlisted dowsing for metals as an act that broke the first commandment (i.e., asoccultism). The 1550 edition of Sebastian Münster's Cosmographia contains a woodcut of a dowser with forked rod in hand walking over a cutaway image of a mining operation.

The rod is labelled "Virgula Divina – Glück rüt" (Latin: divine rod; German "Wünschelrute": fortune rod or stick), but there is no text accompanying the woodcut. By 1556 Georgius Agricola's treatment of mining and smelting of ore, De Re Metallica, included a detailed description of dowsing for metal ore.

In the sixteenth century, German deep mining technology was in enormous demand all over Europe and German miners were licensed to live and work in Elizabethan England particularly in the Stannaries of Devon & Cornwall and in Cumbria. It is thought that the dialect term "dowsing" was introduced at this period – its origin is unknown but features characteristics of the West Country dialects.

In 1662 dowsing was declared to be "superstitious, or rather satanic" by a Jesuit,Gaspar Schott, though he later noted that he wasn't sure that the devil was always responsible for the movement of the rod. In the South of France in the 17th century it was used in tracking criminals and heretics. Its abuse led to a decree of the inquisition in 1701, forbidding its employment for purposes of justice.

An epigram by Samuel Sheppard, from Epigrams theological, philosophical, and romantick (1651) runs thus:
Virgula divina.

"Some Sorcerers do boast they have a Rod, Gather'd with Vowes and Sacrifice, And (borne about) will strangely nod

To hidden Treasure where it lies; Mankind is (sure) that Rod divine, For to the Wealthiest (ever) they incline." Dowsing was conducted in South Dakota in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to help homesteaders, farmers, and ranchers locate water wells on their property.

In the late 1960s during the Vietnam War, some United States Marines used dowsing to attempt to locate weapons and tunnels. As late as in 1986, when 31 soldiers were taken by an avalanche during an operation in the NATO drill Anchor Express in Vassdalen, Norway, the Norwegian army attempted to locate soldiers buried in the avalanche using dowsing as search method. Regardless of the scientific experiments, dowsing is still used by some farmers.
Spiritual dowsing

Spiritual dowsing is something which didn't generally have quite a bit of a history before the last piece of the twentieth century. Preceding that time, dowsing was more centered around subjects like water and mineral areas with the beginnings of wellbeing dowsing simply appearing. 

As the century advanced in any case, for no undeniable single reason, there was a surge of enthusiasm for utilizing dowsing on non-noticeable and not-effortlessly irrefutable subjects, for example, the investigation of 'energies' of spots and individuals and items. This segued into dowsing about the universe and the creatures which may or won't not possess it or associate in some form with mankind. 

At the end of the day, dowsing changed from being a straightforward device with a constrained scope of uses to an undeniable multi-reason movement venturing into any and each part of life. One of those angles came to be known as otherworldly dowsing. 

Be that as it may, it isn't particularly simple to characterize what precisely constitutes otherworldly dowsing. As a matter of fact, there was a book distributed under that title, composed by Sig Lonegren in 1986. The advancement for this said it was composed for 'voyagers on the profound way who might want to check whether dowsing can help them along their way'. The book itself investigates dowsing as an instrument for finding energies found at antiquated consecrated destinations and also for wellbeing and recuperating. 

As should be obvious, that covers an extensive variety of potential outcomes! Also, that is the thing that makes it hard to be exact about what constitutes profound dowsing and stamps it as not the same as other dowsing applications. 

Likely for the vast majority when they discuss otherworldly dowsing they mean utilizing dowsing to investigate the imperceptible domains. Along these lines, for instance, they will dowse about holy messengers and lead celestial hosts or maybe a remark with their own particular profound objectives. 

The fact of the matter is that the term is so obscure as to not mean anything in particular. Indeed, every individual who utilizes it implies something by it, however not every person has a similar definition. 

One reason for this term still to be utilized today is without a doubt in light of the fact that, for a few people, it sounds like something which, on the off chance that you do it, improves you sound a man than somebody who doesn't do it. At the end of the day, there is a vainglory of sorts about it. 'Goodness, I'm an otherworldly dowser. I'm associated with non-natural things.' You get the photo. 

Obviously, a few people will have made a definite report about whatever it is they have characterized as otherworldly dowsing and I laud them for their devotion to it. 

I can't generally say that it's something I am occupied with basically in light of the fact that I pick not to make a particular definition around one region of dowsing. To me, dowsing will be dowsing regardless. I may dowse one day about the wellbeing and eating regimen of one of our felines and the following day dowse about something undetectable and elusive, similar to what is influencing our home to cause a particular physical reaction. 

At the end of the day, dowsing is simply dowsing; which is making questions and finding solutions. To lump it up into various regions isn't that helpful as a similar range of abilities is required regardless.
