Dowsing Rods for Spirit Communication

The desire to communicate with the spiritual realm has fascinated humans for centuries. While traditional methods like mediumship and séances are well-known, another intriguing tool is often used for such purposes – dowsing rods.

This article will explore the concept of dowsing rods and provide a step-by-step guide to communicating with spirits. Let’s dive into this mysterious yet fascinating practice with a scientific perspective.

Understanding Dowsing Rods

Dowsing rods, or divining rods, are simple tools used to detect spiritual energy and for spirit communication.

They typically consist of two copper or brass rods held loosely in the hands. The rods are believed to move or react in response to energy fields emitted by spirits or other unseen forces.

While the scientific community generally views dowsing as pseudoscience, some people have reported intriguing experiences that they attribute to the use of dowsing rods.

It’s essential to approach this practice openly while acknowledging the absence of scientific evidence supporting its efficacy.

I have had great success using dowsing rods in my paranormal investigations. It has become one of my favorite tools for gaining yes or no answers.

Step-by-Step Guide to Using Dowsing Rods for Spirit Communication

There is no single way of using dowsing rods for spirit communications. In this guide, I show you the most straightforward method I know. As you gain experience, you can adapt the technique to fit your style.

I prefer dowsing rods with handles. The rods can spin freely without any interference from the grip.

Step 1: Choose the Right Dowsing Rods

Select a pair of dowsing rods that feel comfortable in your hands. They should preferably be made of copper or brass and must have a balanced weight distribution. Dowsing rods with handles are the easiest to use, as your grip won’t interfere with the movements of the rods.

Step 2: Prepare Your Mind and Environment

Find a quiet and peaceful location where you feel comfortable. Create an ambiance conducive to your purpose by dimming the lights and playing soft, calming music, if desired.

Relax and clear your mind, allowing yourself to be open to any potential spiritual energy. If you have located a portal, the odds of successful communication with spirits are higher. It is not necessary, but you up the odds for responses.

Step 3: Hold the Dowsing Rods Correctly

Grasp the rods gently, with your hands lightly holding the handles. Make sure you keep your underarms somewhat equivalent to the ground.

Place your thumbs at the top of the handles without touching the rods. Keep your arms relaxed, close to your waist, and slightly extended, allowing the rods to move freely.

Stand firm and try to relax as much as possible. If you are tens, the rods are known to “jam.” Never do a session when you are tired or not in the “mood.” There is no idea to pressure yourself in any way. Try to have fun and keep an open heart.

Step 4: State Your Intention

Clearly and silently state your intention to communicate with spirits or entities. This sets the focus and energy for the session.

  • What is the intention of the session?
  • What question do you want to be answered?
  • Who do you want to talk to?

By having a clear intention, you are more likely to be successful. The more explicit your intention and question are, the more likely you are to get a response. It is easy to confuse spirits, so keep it simple and stick to yes and no questions.

I recommend having one question in mind the first time you try divination with dowsing rods. You can easily get overwhelmed if you are not experienced. You can split it into different sessions if you have several questions.

But as always, you do you. You know what feels best for you, and that is all that matters.

Step 5: Set firm boundaries

Setting firm boundaries for the session is vital to spiritual safety and success. If you allow any spirit to answer, you risk having a negative entity taking advantage of the situation.

It is important to remember that whenever you engage in divination, regardless of method, you are opening a spirit portal. If the portal remains open after the session ends, it can lead to unwanted hauntings and problems. The more “rules” you set when you open the portal for communications, the less the risk of nasty and scary scenarios.

We have more power over the spirit world than many of us think. You are in charge of the session, even if nasty little demons arrive at your doorstep. They can not engage with you if you don’t allow them to. I talk a lot about this on my blog, and you will find helpful information in the article below if you want to learn more.

Step 6: Ask Yes or No Questions

When you have set your intention and stated clear boundaries, it is time to start communicating with the spirits.

Begin asking simple questions, phrased as yes/no inquiries, out loud or in your mind.

Examples could include, “Is there a spirit of light present?” or “Is there any spirit of light who wants to communicate?”

Make sure always to restate your boundaries when asking questions. Don’t allow any dark energies to come through.

Step 7: Observe the Rods’ Movements

Note the response of the dowsing rods. Traditionally, a crossing or opening of the rods is interpreted as a positive response or confirmation, while no movement or parallel positioning suggests a negative response or absence of communication.

Another way is to program the rods. You do this by asking the rods to show you “yes.” Take a close look at the response. Ask the dowsing rods to show you “no.” You can verify the programming by asking the dowsing rods a question you know the answer to. This can be as simple as “Is my sweater red?”.

If the dowsing rods react correctly, you know you have successfully programmed the rods.

Step 8: Validate Your Results

After receiving a response, ask additional questions to confirm the consistency of the dowsing rods’ movements.

Experiment with known facts or information that the spirit may possess to validate the accuracy of the communication.

Step 9: Conclude the Session

When you are ready to conclude the session, express gratitude for any communication received. Thank the spirits for their presence and politely request that they depart. Close the session with positive affirmations and take a moment to reflect on your experience.

Be sure to state loud or in your head that the session is closed, and no spirits can communicate through the dowsing rods.

This is very important as you otherwise might end up with an open portal that might lead to unwanted paranormal activity.

Final thoughts

Using dowsing rods for spirit communication can be a fascinating and introspective journey.

While the scientific validity of this practice remains debatable, many individuals have reported intriguing encounters and experiences.

It’s essential to approach dowsing with an open mind, acknowledging that the interpretation of the rods’ movements may vary from person to person.

Remember to maintain a respectful and ethical approach when communicating with spirits. Enjoy the process, and may it bring you closer to understanding the mysteries of the unseen world.
