Dowsing has been around for millennia and thankfully is enjoying a resurgence. What can you do with it beyond finding water and oil to drill? How about using it to help find lost objects, clear detrimental energies on your property, addressing health issues and determining which foods are good or bad for you, change the weather, or dowse a map location? Generally, it’s a way to access greater intelligence, develop one’s intuition, make important decisions in life, and gain clarity on how to improve our lives and make a better world!
