A dowsing rod is an instrument used for dowsing rod walking (also called rab dominance). A trained dowser can trace wells, metals, gemstones or other objects beneath the earth's surface or can find energetic interferences in, for example, your home.
Instructions for use
Hold the rod in the palm of your hands, curling your fingers and thumb around the handle firmly, but not too tight. The long end of the rod should not touch your hands in any way while holding it, so it can swing freely, without any interference.
Holding the rod like this, ask it to show you a "yes." The rod will swing up and down or left to right to indicate what the answer "yes" will be. Ask the rod to show you what the answer "no" will be. Again, the rod will swing up and down or left to right, and it should be the opposite of what it showed you for the answer "yes." Repeat the process one more time, so the indication for both "yes" and "no" answers are completely clear to you.
Now, ask your questions, in a way they can only be answered by a simple "yes" or "no." Ask questions to find lost or particular items by dowsing for directions. Or ask questions that solicit where a specific object or person is.
