Earth Energies and Dowsing

What is Dowsing?

Dowsing is also known as Western Geomancy, Radiaesthesia and Divining (this is often linked with divining for water). There is a lot of dispute in Feng Shui circles (not at the Master level though), that Feng Shui and Dowsing are not good bedfellows. This chatter is coming from people who do not understand either and more particularly both subject matters. In both practices we need to attend to the energies that arise from the earth and the energies that arrive at the earth or building. There is actually no mismatch between eastern and western geomancy. The best definition is: being able to detect the unseen using an amplifier or antenna to supplement or augment the body’s innate detection system. It is not really that mysterious. 

Many ‘alternative’ or complementary therapists use pendulums to identify things (food, medicines, supplements) that suit their clients or which they should avoid. 

There is undoubted evidence of dowsing / divining being used over milenia. The ank is seen by many as a simple divining or dowsing tool.

The awesome Chartres Cathedral is built over the convergence of 7 streams. The original font was placed over this ‘source’ of water. It is now only apparent if you manage to tour the under church (something I was fortunate to do some 10 or more years ago – a breath taking experience).

It is common to Celtic and druidic practices and again is used to detect underground water / streams.

How do you learn dowsing?

There are some excellent books written about Western Geomancy and they are reliable. For both practices you must have a personal meditation practice that allows you to get centred and be able to exclude any external influences that are not relevant to the analysis. In Western Geomancy there are many different lines that are referred to. They include Geopathic Stress, Hartmann lines, Curry lines or Grid. Some of these names are used interchangeably sometimes and they can also be more emphasised in different regions that use western geomantic practices.

The best way to learn dowsing or divining is standing at the elbow of someone who is competent. You can usually find these folk in all corners of the globe. For example my husband’s grandfather was a radiaesthesist – he found the water ‘source’ and the well was dug which still yields water 60 – 80 years on. In my small town there is an amazing old fellow who has been water divining for about 70 years now. 

Many animals automatically ‘detect’ these fields or streams or charges. Some animals will converge upon positive lines and others such as ants (yes I know they are not animals but insects) and cats are able to detect negative lines.

Because of movements in the earth when it is subject to differing climatic conditions the presence and intensity of these fields / streams vary. With wet conditions following extended periods of dry dissolved salts can rise higher to the surface and cause problems when previously there were none.

Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF)

Safe Levels of EMF's There is absolutely no argument from anyone that Electro Magnetic Fields are a part of our natural and built environment. The argument often arises about what are safe exposures and what generates these fields such as earthing the electrical system via the copper water pipes in older style buildings. Most states of Australia have issued new guidelines to stop this practice as some plumbers have been electrocuted when replacing copper pipes.
There are several studies that have linked health problems to exposure to EMF's. If you are interested in following through on this research go to Don Maisch  site. Don has gathered extensive research from many sources.
The fields have different Vibrational rates referred to as hertz or gauss. When electromagnetic fields appear to be too high or there is chronic illness present. There is dispute about exposure to Extremely Low Fields and Don has some very pertinent things to say about the extraordinary incidence of Breast Cancer in women working at the ABC studio at Toowong (Qld).

Electromagnetic Stress

There are different types of lines the outcome of which is stress for the human system. It is interesting that other sentient beings react to them in different ways. Dogs avoid stress lines, cats love them, ants build their nests over them but birds avoid them. If you are willing to observe your natural environment and the creatures that inhabit or pass through it you can get an idea about how beneficial or harmful these lines are. 
When living and particularly sleeping over geopathic stress the human immune system is weakened and disease states ensue. When these lines cross each other they are much more likely to create these disease states. These are often called vortexes. The energy is very strong and will weaken the body system that coincides with the vortex.

A special sensitivity and perception is required to deliver direct input for clients, in regard to the principles of energy (the field of existence) and Metaphysical considerations, that enable Vicki to offer extensive work beyond the perimeters of basic Feng Shui practise. Vicki applications are backed by years of knowledge and field work which result in practical and functional ways to apply and understand the benefits of her methods and expertise. She completes her analysis with a comprehensive verbal report - along with sketches of her findings.

Feng Shui is truly an art of healing, not only for our home and work environment; but understanding the key of energy flow allows us to balance energy in many aspects of our lives.

Vicki came to Feng Shui my house and made some immediate observations and suggestions such as inverting where my young son put his head in the bed as it was actually on the wall with the main electrical power board. 

Clotilde Blanchet - OnLIne Discovery

Vick's feng shui advice has changed my life, my home, my world.  Simple easy and Energy Changing to the positive.  I highly recommend her wonderful gifts she brings into your life and home.

Belinda Wardlaw

One of the major problems she identified was that the front door was in direct line of the back windows of the garden - letting money flow out of the house. 

Clotilde Blanchet -OnLine Discovery

Vicki’s knowledge and experience of feng shui and business management in general was invaluable to us and we felt very confident in following her suggestions and advice.

The crème de la crème of our interior design are the four large banners hanging throughout the centre that were designed by Vicki - they are absolutely fabulous... a must see.

Mark & Lyn Hudson TasWellbeing Centre - Kingston Beach

I have used Vicki’s expertise with Feng Shui in my last 3 houses to assist with the challenges that presented at the time and it was amazing how sometimes seemingly small changes within your environment can have a significant impact.

PF Geelong - Vic

Vicki's approach to Feng Shui has intrigued and supported me and my family for many years. From simple positional/shape changes to complex "remedies" our home's chi flows better with Vicki's Feng Shui advice.

Michael Roberts Managing Director

With Vicki’s guidance we have created a long term plan for the development of the clinic and how it will look, from details as small as where shelves should go to the larger plan for the front of the building.

Mark & Lyn Hudson TasWellbeing Centre - Kingston Beach

I found Vicki's mindfulness meditation course extremely worthwhile. 

When I practise I am calm, more organised and and I am able to prioritise more effectively- this is really important in my role as a nurse - If I do not look after myself I can't spend all day caring for others.It is said that meditation is like 'putting your oxygen mask on first before assisting others'- it is so true! 

Vicki is a great mindfulness teacher.

I highly recommend this tool to anyone who is faced with making important decisions, wanting to build relationships or needing to persuade family,  loved ones, influential clients/stakeholders to look at things differently and increase acceptance of alternate ideas/views.

Kathy B - Hobart

My latest challenge was attracting someone to share my life with. I have always believed in the Law of Attraction” so I knew I needed to change.  I had already made many personal growth changes however the shift still had not happened, so I called my friend.  After making only a few of the recommended changes Vicki suggested in my current residence my energy and life has been opened and I am now blessed with a new relationship.

PF Geelong - Vic

Your work makes such a positive change in people's lives, you have a great job!

I have known Vicki for many years and have been blessed with her friendship and professional assistance when faced with several challenges in my life.

PF Geelong - Vic

Vicki came to our home and very successfully removed some very old energy that was impacting on our ability to move forward

DebraQuatararo -

She reset the corner boundaries of the property and cleared the flow of energy. Within a month of that work I was able to leave a job of 18 years and launch my business 

Debra Quatararro -

We moved our Naturopathic clinic on a shoestring budget and Vicki was able to assist us in clinic design that would look and feel great as well as be affordable.

Lynn & Mark Hudson - TasWellbeing Centre - Kingston Beach

She gave us suggestions for placing of plants and furniture to block the outward flow of money but a month later we decided to actually alter the back of the house, moving window and doors to give a different access to the garden.  Since then I started working part time for an employer whilst still maintaining my own business and I've found that for the first time in quite a while I have money in my account that stays there, referrals and new clients that are bigger and have good cash flow. Money does not seem to leak out as much and life is looking up.  

Clotilde Blanchet - OnLIne Discovery

I practiseTai chi with Vicki and combining both Mindfulness Meditation and Tai Chi is a natural fit and has helped me recover from a significant back injury and the stress and anxiety that comes along with pain.

Sandy Roberts

The energy in the shop is just amazing. it is so peaceful but energised. People are definitely affected by the space in a very positive way.

Kara B - Copping - Tasmania

Vicki was always available for us and her insights and experience added pizazz and harmony to the project

Susan Peden and John Correy, Snug

The more I read about Feng Shui, the more I realised I didn't know, so doing her workshop enabled me to understand enough to use the principles in my life.
