How We Started Our New Dowsing Chapter

Written by Mary Pedi

In July of 2010 my husband and I received an intra-village email from one of our neighbors, Karen Durham, announcing a three hour Basic Dowsing Class held at her home. Upon successful completion, we were immediately dowsing and becoming more aware of the metaphysical universe, spring boarding us into devouring as many books as we possibly could handle on the subject.

And this new desire grew and grew, and then it happened again, an email arrived in the Fall of 2010, announcing a visit from Karen’s close friend of 30 years who would be coming to the Villages to teach and to conduct private energy healing and regression sessions. And lo and behold, her dear friend is Sandee Mac!

During our private sessions, Sandee brought us to places and awarenesses where we have never been, with earthshaking and life-altering regressions. In the meantime, Karen continued to offer dowsing classes, increasing the amount of practicing dowers in the Villages. With continuing Sandee Mac guidance and mentoring, a small group of Karen’s friends and students decided to found a new chapter in the Tri-county area.

The location of the Villages Unity Church provided us with the perfect venue. Eager to reach more people, we brainstormed and decided to name the new chapter “Dowsers Unlimited,” and in February of 2011, we literally opened our doors with Carol Gader as our first exciting, guest speaker, who has an open invitation to return every February to an awaiting following.

We are officially known in the area and beyond as: Dowsers Unlimited: Opening Doors to Guidance and Knowledge.

The Villages, Florida, is an active retirement community, nestled in the corner of three counties, Sumter, Lake and Marion. The Villages community boasts of free golf for the rest of your life, free country clubs, thousands of activities and recreation, nightly entertainment, restaurants galore, shopping, and all accessible by golf cart. The community has reached a population figure of 90,000

Helpful Books For the Beginner Dowser

Written by Mary Pedi

Before Webinars, attending the 2011 and 2012 conventions and workshops presented by Raymon Mike, there are some fine books on the subject of dowsing that are more than helpful in one’s search for definition, practical application and intuitive living.

The first book I would like to talk about is Pendulum Magic for Beginners by Richard Webster, a hypnotherapist and teacher from New Zealand. But it was not the title alone that attracted me to the book, but rather the additional jacket information stating: The Power to Achieve All Goals. “The book teaches you how to: communicate with your subconscious mind, find lost objects, help resolve health issues, communicate with spirits, explore past lives and use Huna rituals to achieve goals.” As Richard Webster said himself, “…your intuitive abilities will blossom.” I highly recommend this book because it covers in 13 chapters what every dowser should know and practice in everyday life.

The next book of interest is Pendulum Power by Greg Nielsen and Joseph Polansky. If you like history and the origins of things you will like Chapters 1 through 5. These chapters help one understand what the pendulum is in an interesting representation of the history of dowsing and the pioneers through recorded history who have advanced its practices. Chapter 7 is an eye-opener with chosen true stories of “Pendulum Power.” Other fields are discussed associated with the pendulum and dowsing such as: dynamic self-healing, becoming the master of your home, map dowsing, radionics, and much more culminating in their view that the blending of radiational physics, science, religion, art and their esoteric meanings all become a new religion (not traditional organized religion) in a new society as “the science-art of living.”

Lastly but definitely not least, we could not have been successful in our new chapter without the practical books by Raymon Mike and Walt Woods. We periodically present instructional classes with the information contained in Raymon’s book, Techniques That Work for Me, and we sell this book at Dowsers Unlimited and find ourselves restocking it periodically. Raymon’s sincere understanding and connection with the subconscious mind and the power in using the energy in the universe has been very instrumental in the lives of our membership.*

At one time, we would seek out Raymon’s workshops, but now he comes to the Villages and teaches at our chapter. What works great for us is combining Raymon’s knowledge and practical applications with Walt Woods’ little books, Letter to Robin and Companion to Letter to Robin. Walt’s instructions on how to program one’s Super Mind is a very valuable tool in a dowser’s life. We add this technique to classes we present giving the classes extra power and unification.

All of the above led us into more advanced and unique readings such as: an updated original work of Dr. Herbert Parker by Carol Gader, Dowsing Your Health: Including Dowsing Charts for Personal Health and a transformational book by Christina Lynn Whited called, Meditations With Mary: Lessons From The Holy Mother; each exquisite lesson channeled through Christina.

*Please note that Raymon’s techniques have dramatically helped many of our members with their own true stories, but one member in particular to mention is Linda Rosenbaum, a pioneer in her own rite, with her own very personal and awe-inspiring memoir, My Husband Has ADD: and the Miraculous Discovery that Changed our Life.

How I Use Dowsing As A Middle School Teacher

One of the first endeavors I undertook upon arriving at the school in which I was teaching was dowsing the school premises to find channels of beneficial and detrimental energy. It’s important to know where these energy fields are located in any location that is regular host to people, and schools are no exception. One located, I endeavored to move the field lines to areas off school grounds, and if this was not an option, move them to areas with the least amount of regular traffic.

Another major concern in modern school buildings is the intensity level of wireless internet hubs, which are often installed into wings of schools or into individual classrooms. The difficulty in dealing with these and other microwave-type radio frequencies is striking a balance between usability and harm. On the one hand, the functionality of the devices emitting these signals must be preserved as best as possible. On the other hand, the detrimental effects of these microwave-emitting devices must be minimized.

To strike this balance, I communicated with the devices in the schools to ask whether they were able to direct the energy they emitted away from staff and students when the energy was not needed, such as when students’ laptops were not in use. After receiving an affirmative response, I then asked whether the devices were able to minimize the detrimental field effects they emitted when their energy was called upon, while at the same time maintaining an acceptable level of functionality. I again received an affirmative response.

Upon entering the classroom every day, I performed a number of small dowsing exercises to improve upon the learning environment of the classroom for the present day. I requested that the presence of thought forms created during the previous day by anyone in the room which were beneficial to the teaching and learning process be increased in appropriate proportion to the teaching and learning that lay ahead. Likewise, I requested that the presence of thought forms which were detrimental to the teaching and learning process be decreased in appropriate proportion. I found that doing so helped ‘clear the air’ and create a more actively productive learning environment for the day’s work.

Another important use of dowsing in the classroom was deviceless dowsing on the fly to help me decide how to answer questions from my students. I am an honest teacher and do not give my students whitewashed answers to important questions they ask. However, working in a public institution there are limits to the potency of raw information that any teacher can deliver. This makes for a particularly interesting dynamic in middle school when students begin developing complex logical thought patterns and probe deeper into the questions of life.

Rather than getting caught flat-footed when a student asked a tough question, be it about politics, science, sex, or religion, I briefly closed my eyes and pictured a quarter-circle pendulum chart in my eidetic vision. I do this even now in conversation when I am presented with a question which puts me in a similar predicament. It looks much like a traditional fuel gauge in a vehicle. The one side of the chart represents ‘tone your reply down heavily.’ The other side of the chart represents ‘go for it!’ Somewhere on the chart, a line appears running from the vertex to the outside of the chart which indicates the degree to which I must temper my response to achieve the best possible outcome for all people affected or potentially affected with the answer I deliver. (Correctly formulating this question involves a great many variables, as any teacher will tell you!)

I quickly interpret the chart, open my eyes, and let the words flow.

Dowsing Your Workout Schedule

Here’s what I do: I start at the top of the list, which is Monday. If your workout schedule begins on Sunday or another day then start there. The first thing I check to see is whether or not it’s in my best interests to work out that day. The vast majority of the time, my pendulum does not surprise me here. Every once in a while, though, the pendulum indicates that it is best to skip a day during the week.

The next question I ask is how long I need to spend training for the most efficient use of my time. I start at less than sixty minutes, then less than ninety minutes, then less than one hundred and twenty minutes.

I’m not precise here. When the pendulum changes its indication from one half-hour increment to the next, I call it good. I don’t care to know how long to stay at the gym down to the minute. If the pendulum indicates a no at less then ninety minutes, and yes at less than one hundred twenty minutes, I simply plan to be at the gym for and hour and a half to two hours.

Again, most of the time I’m not surprised here. The pendulum almost always indicates a time somewhere between one and two hours.

The next thing I check is the muscle groups for each day. To make this step go faster, I start by checking the pre-planned muscles. So for Monday, which is back and biceps day on my routine, I ask,

“If over the course of the week I exercise every muscle group listed in my routine once, is there a better day than Monday of this week to work my back and biceps, so that I experience a maximally challenging and beneficial workout?”

If I get a no, I move on. If I get a yes – yes there is a better day to work those muscle groups – I ask which day it is. When I find it, I ask where that day’s muscle groups belong, and continue through the week until I have all of the muscle groups arranged for the most beneficial and challenging workout.

Sometimes every day of the week checks out according to my pre-planned routine. But every other week or so, I find myself switching muscle groups around here and there.

The last thing I check is for the best time to exercise. I either work out in the early morning or the late afternoon, so for this question I use a semicircle chart, one half representing morning, the other half representing afternoon.

As I dowse out the week’s workout schedule, I make sure not to think about anything else that I have on my plate for the week. I am always forced to surrender some of my workout schedule to the practicalities of the daily grind, but I do not let these appointments and deadlines interfere with planning my workout. I get the answers and plan the week’s workouts first, and then I see how diligently I can stick to the plan.

A couple good compliments to dowsing your workout schedule are dowsing your supplements and dowsing your protein intake for maximum muscle gains. Remember that there are infinite ways in which you can use dowsing to help you improve and understand more about your body. So give this a try next time you want to change things up at the gym, especially when you feel yourself getting into a rut, doing the same things that have become easier and easier for you. Let the pendulum give you some suggestions to break the routine and get you back in the zone.
