Dowsing or “Divining” rods are a divination tool used to detect energy. They have been used for centuries to locate water, minerals, and metals. This tool is commonly used in metaphysical practices to read the energy of a person or crystals. One rod is held in each hand, with the short arm of the L held upright, and the long arm pointing forward. Hold the rods shoulder width apart at eye level, aim the long arms straight ahead at the person or object you wish to read the energy of. Take a deep grounding breath and set your intention to measure the energy of the person/objects. Aloud or in your head repeat, “I set my intention to measure the energy of (insert person or objects name.) Then slowly start walking toward the person/object. When you have reached their energy field the rods will either cross over one another, or swing apart.
Similar to a pendulum, dowsing rods can also be used to receive “yes” or “no” answers to questions. Hold the rods up with the long arms pointed forward and ask aloud or in your head, “show me a yes” and notice which way the rods move. Then repeat and ask, “show me a no” and they will usually move in the opposite direction. Once you have determined your yes and no, hold the rods up and ask your question.
Our dowsing rods are hand made and are 100% pure brass. It does take some practice to work with dowsing rods. They should be held somewhat loosely in the hands so they are able to move freely. We also make a sleeved version so it does not matter how tightly you hold the rods you will still be able to receive a reading.
