15 Hints for water dowsing.

COUNTRYSIDE: In regards to the dowsing dowsing

Occult practice used for finding water, minerals, or other hidden substances. A dowser generally uses a Y-shaped piece of hazel, rowan, or willow wood (also called a dowser or a divining rod).
 question from Tina Burgan of Mountain c View, California, I think dowsing would i be a prime concern for all homesteaders, I finding potable water for health and irrigation irrigation, in agriculture, artificial watering of the land. Although used chiefly in regions with annual rainfall of less than 20 in. (51 cm), it is also used in wetter areas to grow certain crops, e.g., rice. , and finding lost tools, and many other applications.

If you happened to have an ancestor who was a dowser dowser: see divining rod.  it will be in your genes or DNA DNA: see nucleic acid.
DNA
 or deoxyribonucleic acid

One of two types of nucleic acid (the other is RNA); a complex organic compound found in all living cells and many viruses. It is the chemical substance of genes.
 and you would learn to dowse dowse 1 also douse  
intr.v. dowsed also doused, dows·ing also dous·ing, dows·es also dous·es
To use a divining rod to search for underground water or minerals.
 real quick. You would be called a natural born dowser.

Others can learn to dowse. The American Society of Dowsers has chapters scattered throughout the USA and they are happy to help anyone learn to dowse.--Alvin Jackson

BY JACK LIVINGSTON & JOAN McFARLANE

1. Get what you are looking for firmly in your mind.

2. Phrase the question so it can be answered yes, no, or maybe. If need be, break it into parts. Writing down both questions and answers will be helpful.

3. Make sure of your wording. What you ask for is what you get and a single word can change the meaning. Questions are taken literally.

4. Accept your original answer. Repeatedly asking the same question is saying, in effect, that you did not like the first one so you get another.

5. If you are concerned you may be putting conscious thinking into an answer. Have someone else dowse it for you. Personal questions for yourself and those close to you are where this is most apt to happen.

6. Get the full answer to the first question before you go on to the next so there is no chance of overlap. In fact, it is a good idea to halt your instrument.

7. Do not ask frivolous questions--ones you already know the answer to or can get easily from another source. They are fine as a learning tool, but come under game playing later.

8. When you do not have enough personal knowledge to phrase a question, it is perfectly acceptable to use the information provided by the mind of the person you are asking to dowse.

9. There is something we call "invasion of privacy invasion of privacy n. the intrusion into the personal life of another, without just cause, which can give the person whose privacy has been invaded a right to bring a lawsuit for damages against the person or entity that intruded. ." Your very first question, in some cases, should be whether you should ask for the information you want.

10. Know how to recognize when you are getting tired. You will begin to get sloppy answers. Learn to detoxify de·tox·i·fy
v.
1. To counteract or destroy the toxic properties of a substance.

2. To remove the effects of poison from something, such as the blood.

3.
 yourself after a long session.

11. If someone is bothering you, do not hesitate to ask him or her to leave. If you personally feel bad about answering, say no.

12. When dowsing for the future it will most likely be based on the information available today. People and events change, so it is something to keep in mind.

13. Dowse for need not greed and you will be more successful.

14. Do the best you can and if you do make a mistake, try to learn from it.

15. Keep humble.
