I've been told that if I wanna become a clairvoyant or psychic I'd better keep dowsing with my pendulums instead of trying many different things (as affirmations). And that's all. No explanation.

Do you think this (keep dowsing only) would make my wish possible? And how would that work? I can see no relation...

All answers are welcome!

It may be true (for you), or it may not be true (for you).

I would say it depends on your current belief system ultimately. If someone here gives you enough of a convincing explanation (to your current belief system) as to how dowsing alone will enhance your psychic abilities then you'll allow yourself to let it enhance your psychic abilities.

It's what Bashar calls a permission slip.

But isn't there a more important underlying issue to your question...why are you listening to people who tell you to do things without any explanation at all as to why you are doing them, especially when what they say makes no sense to you? :)

No offence intended to the religious people here....but isn't that how religions get started? ;)

I don't listen to that kind of people usually, as I think if you're going to give some advice, you have to give an explanation as to why you think on a certain way...I am not sure if that permission slip will work for me...if I don't see a relation of a thing with another I find it dificult for it to become my current belief system. What do you think? I might be limiting myself but...And YES, that's how all religions started! :)

I'd say if it doesn't resonate with you inwardly (i.e you don't feel good about it), it's probably not for you. But you can always find a way to make it part of your belief system and then use it as, what I call, a convenient belief i.e. a belief that you know is self-manufactured but one that still gets you results. I have a few of these deliberate handy "self-delusions": http://www.inwardquest.com/questions/6209/does-eft-really-work-or-it-is-a-gimmick/6212#6212 . I tend to think that most manifesting methods are actually just convenient beliefs :)

well bridget when using a pendulum or dowsing rod you are capting energy. and with practice and experience you become better at it. like anything in life practice makes perfect. to try different things is not a problem. if you want to try other things it is your choice. all what you experience makes you who you are. some stuff you like some stuff you don't like some stuff you are good at it other stuff you are not good at it. but at least you have tried and know better then if you did not. you will experience and learn and become wiser from what you tried. experience and enjoy.

Thanks, white tiger! I'll keep trying with my crystal ball, but as you say, I might just not be good at it...! Patience! :)

The phrase "better keep dowsing" doesn't really sit well with me. It kinda makes me feel as if I have to follow someone else's rules or way of doing things. Kinda like when my mom or dad used to say "better clean that plate before you leave the table." It just gives off the vibe of someone telling you what you should do instead of giving advice. A better way of saying it could have been "dowsing by itself consistently every day has really helped my psychic abilities grow a great deal, it may be beneficial if you try the same.

I guess what I'm getting at is you have to decide what's best for you. Has doing just dowsing helped you more? Has adding a few things here and there made it better or worse? These are the questions you may have to ask yourself if you want the results you desire. I say try a variety of different things if it feels right to you. As far as I know, there are no set rules to becoming a psychic or clairvoyant so why not experiment a little if you think it would help.

Totally with you, Cory. I disliked more the way it was said that what was actualy said...I love your remastered version of the sentence. I thought the original was somewhat rude... and yes, I think dowsing has made some things better for me, and of course I'll keep doing it...whether it takes me to be a psychic or not! :) xxx

(26 Sep '11, 14:14) BridgetJones09

Yes, you are in the drivers seat of that which is your life. Go with what feels best to you and I bet things will turn out fine. I wish you the best of luck!

Hi BJ09...from a general point of view both clairvoyance and dowsing with a pendulum can be defined as being the obtention of information by means other than the five senses.

My personal experience does seem to indicate that regular practice of the pendulum brings about an increased capacity to detect information by other means...i have many years practice dowsing with the pendulum and nowadays sometimes before i even pick up my pendulum, the answer to my question comes spontaneously to me...in my case, it opens the doorway to a whole range of subtle energy practices including magnetism, telepathy, precognition and clairvoyance, all of which are closely linked and can be broadly defined as mentioned above.

I would suggest that the regular practice of any of these disciplines brings about a personal sensibilisation and expansion of consciousness.

Thanks, bluebird! That's the kind of answer I was looking for... what linked dowsing with an increase of the psychic abilities. I think it made me more sensitive to ppl with negative energy, or ppl who is not showing their true colours...it could be my imagination, of course, but I think dowsing did it. xxx

(26 Sep '11, 14:18) BridgetJones09

BridgetJones09-yes i agree, an expanded exteriorisation of sensibility is the key...and thanks for the xxx
