In just a few minutes, you can learn how to dowse with wire coat hangers. The first thing you will need is to get one one or two wire coat hangers. If you’ve got two wire coat hangers, this works a little bit better.
Secondly, you want to hold them this direction, so that your hand is on the flat bar, one hand on each. What you are doing is you are allowing these hangers to swing freely like this. You can see them swing one way, than the other. That means you’re not gripping too tightly. You want to hold on loosely, and keep the wire straight up and down.
And the third thing is you want to focus your attention on what it is that you are looking for. This means that for each time you are dowsing, it is essential that you maintain a clear and undistracted mental focus of attention on whether you are looking for subterranean water, ley lines, or human energy fields.
I learned how to dowse in the town of Royston, England, where the curator of the museum showed me that I could find both the energy lines–the male and female energy lines under the museum called the Michael and Mary ley lines, and I could also refocus my attention and look for water, finding water under the cobblestones in the courtyard. It was really amazing to me because it works so easily.
So here’s how you do it. Hold on to your coat hangers, making sure that you get the feeling that they can move freely, so you know you are not gripping the hangers too tightly. Make sure that you are holding them straight up and down, with both of them in hand.
Thirdly, once you’re holding them straight up and down, and they are in position–focus your attention. So if you’re looking for something such as water lines under your property, you can move around walking with these. They will be swaying as you walk, like that. That is very normal. When you hit the edge of water, if that’s what you’re looking for, you will get a response where the hangers swing together, or they might swing open.
As you cross across that water to the other side, then your hangers will go back to this swing again, and they will be swinging left and right with each step, pretty much. And that tells you are doing this very nicely. Other things you can dowse for as I describe in my book, Aura Advantage, is that you can also dowse for energy fields of the people around you: your family, your friends. You can also dowse the energy field of plants and so forth.
Why does this work? As I describe in my book, Quantum Jumps, this is basically one of the many quantum phenomena that we are increasingly noticing in this Quantum Age, in this case entanglement. You’re able to put your focus of attention on something that you can actually sense remotely and get a response with, because you’re entangled with it.
Muscle testing is a wonderfully simple technique that you can use just about anywhere you go to tap into intuitive information we all have access to. You might notice sometimes you have gut feelings about whether a choice you’re contemplating will work out well for you or not, and if you’d like to find a way to better hear that “still, small voice,” muscle testing is a wonderful thing you can learn to do in just a few minutes that can provide you with intuitive information very quickly in almost any situation, any time, anywhere.
This type of muscle testing is a one-person technique that requires you have both hands free. You start by putting your fingers together so both hands are making little circles between thumbs and the pinky fingers. What you’re doing is creating something like a daisy chain when you put the two links together, intersecting the circle you’ve just made with your left hand and the circle you’ve just made with your right hand.
You can actually make these circles using your thumb on each hand with any other finger you like–but I suggest using your pinky finger, because usually it’s one of the weakest fingers. The advantage of weakness is that for muscle testing, we want some minimal resistance, but not too much.
Once you’ve made finger circles with both hands and they intersect like two chains in a daisy chain, the next thing you do is ask a question that you already know the answer to. For example, I would ask myself, “Am I Cynthia Sue Larson?” and pull my daisy chain rings apart–and they hold together very firmly. I’m not really trying to do this, I’m just focusing on, “Am I Cynthia Sue Larson?” This is my “Yes” when the chain does not pull apart.
Now that I’ve seen what a “Yes” looks like, I can ask a question such as, “Is my name John?” and I pull the chain apart. I’m once again not TRYING to do this at all, it’s just a weakness in the muscle, so that’s why they call this “muscle testing.” It is a form of dowsing. The reason behind it has a lot to do with physics, actually, and the fact that when you ask a question, you are essentially entangling yourself with the subject of your inquiry. This is through the focus of your attention. I talk about dowsing in my book, Aura Advantage, which describes some other methods you can use. I describe the fact that we are in the Quantum Age right now in my book, Quantum Jumps, describing many of the principles behind quantum physics, such as entanglement, coherence, superposition of states, and teleportation.
You may wonder what muscle testing is useful for. You can use it for choosing things, when you want to know in advance before opening the package, is it good for you? Is this the right car to buy? You can say, “Is this broken-down jalopy that gets twelve miles to the gallon and costs twenty thousand dollars– is this the right car for me?” and see you get a very clear NO in reply!
If you ask a serious question, and you’re looking at different options for different cars, cameras, computers, or anything might want to figure out such as:
• where you want to live
• what kind of food is good for you
• which restaurant to choose
and so forth, you can get really strong indicators. You are connecting with your intuition; you are entangling with the subject of your inquiry.
You can also use muscle testing to locate things and people. I’ve used this successfully– this very same method, because my hands are always with me– to locate my friends and family when I’ve been in crowded environments. I just ask, “Should I turn? Are they to the right of me?” and then if I get a strong yes, I know to go that direction. And I have ended up able to just walk directly to a group that I’d gotten detached from when we were all wandering around the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
While I do my best to stay organized in order to minimize misplacing or losing things, every now and then something manages to get misplaced… and sometimes by the time I discover it’s missing, I need it right away. I’ve also noticed that I’m most likely to notice something missing when I’m in a hurry to go somewhere and don’t have a lot of time to search.
FIRST: CONDUCT BASIC SEARCH
The first step in finding something that’s gone missing is to conduct a basic search, making sure that it’s not actually right nearby and we somehow missed it. A good basic search involves:
(1) Retrace your steps to where the item was last seen and where it might have traveled,
(2) Ask anyone nearby if they’ve seen it,
(3) Ask the item to show itself by asking aloud a question my mother taught me when I was very young, “Now if I were ____________, where would I hide?”
(4) Tidy things up while searching. Putting things together with other similar items creates a systematic process of elimination, making it easier to spot the missing item.
SECOND: KNOW YOU’RE NATURALLY WIDENING THE NET
Expanding search categories so more of your brain is involved in your search is a natural process. Researchers at UC Berkeley have found that your brain calls in backup to find lost things. We typically organize objects in one of 1,000 categories in our mind, in such a way that when we see something we can assign it to a logical and easily retrievable location in memory. While this may not in itself be all that remarkable, recent neuroscience studies conducted at UC Berkeley have shown that when study participants are asked to look for something in particular, such as a person, their brains can be seen to widen the net of possible categories:
“… their brains also commandeered the brain regions responsible for perception of animals, body parts, action verbs and natural minerals and shifted them toward the perception of people. Likewise, when participants were seeking vehicles, the categories of tools, devices and structures were also stimulated by representations of vehicles.”
THIRD: HOPE FOR REALITY SHIFT
If you’ve tried all the above steps and still can’t locate your missing item, it’s time to pull out all the stops and resort to some truly amazing natural processes. As it turns out, nature knows a few tricks that physicists don’t, including how to utilize quantum coherence in natural processes such as photosynthesis. What does this have to do with finding lost things? Plenty. Just as scientists are now learning that plants try all possible pathways in order to maximize efficiency of light absorption in cells by virtue of a process called quantum coherence–so too can we take advantage of the fact that as many physicists believe, we and every object around us exists in a superposition of states.
The basic concept is this. If you’re looking for lost keys, for example, envision there is more than one reality in which your keys exist. In some realities, your keys seem to be gone, and in others your keys are nearby in a perfectly accessible place. You are now seeking one of many possible realities in which your keys return to you. Without getting overly concerned with which particular realities have your keys and which don’t, it’s best to adopt the attitude seen in many a “Missing” poster that reads, “No questions asked.” In the realm of quantum physics, in which Shrödinger’s cat is either alive or dead, we don’t so much care about the details as to which of many possible universes the keys come back from, as long as they do return.
Once you’ve focused your attention on what you’re seeking, so as to expand your ability to find it (with more of your brainpower actively being put to work), it’s time to lighten your mood a little… and relax. Saying “Hope for reality shift!”the way my daughters did when they were young is actually an excellent way to feel a bit more light-spirited, thereby making it easier for you to make a jump between parallel worlds of possibility. What this phrase lacks in sophistication it more than compensates in successful returns of missing things–often either in places already thoroughly checked, or rather unexpected locations one would not expect (such as my toddler’s favorite juice cup suddenly perched atop the refrigerator, or water shoes resting atop my daughter’s pillow, or my favorite jewelry tucked inside a dresser drawer). When lost objects reappear, they often seem a little shy… preferring to quietly sneak into an out-of-the-way location, rather than startling people by exuberantly popping into existence right before their very eyes.
I hope you’ll feel inspired by reading real-life reality shift stories posted at RealityShifters and included in the book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World. Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of hope that missing things really can reappear… right out of the blue… and they do!
FOURTH: DOWSE AND YOU SHALL FIND
Dowsing is a great way to find lost things. I’ve had excellent success finding lost things using pendulum method that involves just my fingers–so no extra equipment is required. To use the hand dowsing method, you will create circles by touching your left thumb to left forefinger, and right thumb to right forefinger. These ‘circles’ can be intersected, so you have created a two-link chain. With this system, I’ve found “lost” family members in crowds of thousands of people very quickly, able to walk directly to them! The dowsing works through muscle strength. The idea is that when you are thinking or saying something you agree with or know to be true, such as, “I am alive,” your muscles will hold strong, even as you tug your hands away from one another, trying to pull the circles apart. If you think or say something you know is untrue, such as, “I am dead,” you will get no such strong support from your muscles, and your hands will easily separate as you pull them apart. Once you’ve tried out hand dowsing a few times to get familiar with how it feels when you get a “yes” or “no” response, you can use it to locate people in crowds (by asking yes or no questions as to whether they’re ahead of or behind you), and to locate lost objects.
