The instructions given here are based on the work of Bob Terry, a dowsing professional of 25 years. These instructions are just a guideline, so you should feel free to experiment and develop your dowsing in whatever way feels most comfortable to you. Remember, dowsing rods can be used to search for gold, missing persons, bodies in cemeteries, ghost energy, water, oil, missing objects, etc.

1) Hold your dowsing rods by the copper handles, one in each hand, in front of you. Your arms should be bent at the elbow. Rods should be straight out in front of you.

2) Take a deep breath and clear your mind.

3) State your intent CLEARLY either in your mind or out loud. Your intent is based on what you want the dowsing rods to find. For example, if you are looking for water,  do not just state, "I want you to find water." This statement will probably lead you to your outdoor water spigot or your indoor sink. Stating clearly means defining EXACTLY what you want. So, for water, you might say,  "I would like you to find the closest fresh underground water source. Please exclude water pipes or already processed water." Do not allow yourself to set any preconceived notions of where you "think" what you're looking for might be as this will skew the results.

4) Relax. Do not grip the handles overly tight. Begin walking and allow the rods to lead you. The rods will change direction, but you must give them time to show you where you should go, so walk slowly. With only your intent in mind, follow each change of direction shown to you by the rods. Allow the rods to do the work for you.

5) When the rods cross, you have reached your destination.

6) This is when you can incorporate the use of a pendulum, if you choose. As an example, if you are searching for water, you will want to know how deep the water is at the point where your dowsing rods crossed. If you have not determined how your pendulum will swing for yes and no, now is the time to figure this out. To do this, hold your pendulum out in front of you and ask it to show you the movement it will use for YES. It will, more than likely swing either in a circle or back and forth. Whichever way it goes, remember it as this is the movement you will have for YES from this point on. Repeat the process to find out the movement for NO. The movements between YES and NO should be different so you can easily differentiate between them. If they are not different, repeat your request to have your pendulum show you the movement for NO. Again, remember this movement as this is the movement for NO that you will use from this point on. Once you have your YES and NO movement, you can use your pendulum to determine how far underground the fresh water source is. You would ask, "Is the water source 1 foot underground?" Allow your pendulum to show you YES or NO. If it swings NO, ask, "Is the water source 2 feet underground?" Allow your pendulum to show you YES or NO. If NO, continue going up in footage until your pendulum swings YES.
