I have been thinking about permissions lately and trying to sort out a dilemma. I have read this blog post http://westerngeomancy.org/on-ethics-and-permissions/
To be honest I haven't done a lot of dowsing over the past two or three years, recently started to get back into things. My main interest in dowsing has been earth energies, but away from that I seem to have this connection with spirit. A few years ago a young woman from a local town went missing, the police found her abandoned car in the countryside and there was a big police search in the area around where her car was found.
I looked at an OS map and it was like something was telling me that she wasn't in the search area. I looked carefully and I was drawn to a wood about a mile outside the search area. This was before I started dowsing and I had a slight headache along my forehead just above my eyes. That afternoon I drove out to the search area and past big groups of searchers and then drove out of the search area to a nearby village where I parked my car and walked up to the wood. At the side of the road was a steep muddy embankment with the only visible way of getting through. I toyed with the idea of going further but something told me to hold back, maybe it was the fear of having to explain what I was up to with the police if I found the woman, making the excuse to myself that I had forgotten my boots and it was far to wet and muddy to be messing about. A couple of days later the woman was found very much alive although with an ankle injury, by a female dog walker. She had been sleeping rough in the tent in the wood.
In the Summer of 2011 I had arranged to meet a friend for coffee in St Albans, I parked well away from the town centre and this involved a walk across Verulamium Park where the old roman city was located. My journey took me over the River Ver and past one of the oldest pubs in the country, the Ye Olde Fighting Cocks Inn.
Before I got that far I saw attached to a lamp post a missing persons poster, an OAP with dementia had gone missing. I continued up the hill past the pub and into the Abbey grounds and then into the town centre where I met my friend. Whilst we were sat down talking I had the the vague headache start and I remarked about it jokingly saying "someone is trying to tell me something!" I have suspected for several years that I might have clairescence ability but haven't been able to develop beyond that.
Afterwards I walked back down the hill past the pub and had a quick look at the poster again, crossed the river and then stood at the ruins of the London gate. The headache came back and i closed my eyes, I could mentally hear someone saying "help". I looked in different directions and seemed to be coming from across the ruins and the parkland beyond. Something told me he was beyond the Hemel Hempstead road where there are the remain of an roman amphitheater and further back the ruins of Gorehambury house. Again I couldn't make my mind up to do the mile and a half walk, running the gauntlet of a gatekeeper at the amphitheater (they charge for entrance despite a public bridleway go straight past) and probably finding nothing or returning to my car, still a long walk away but my rods are in the boot and maybe
I decided to walk back to my car and when I did get back thought better of it. A few days later the mans body was found near the Gorehambury House ruins.
Sometimes I might see a missing person being reported in a newspaper and feel absolutely nothing, other times I get the headache, it has even happened when watch the tv news, a woman went missing on a night out, big police search but I knew they were looking in the wrong area, sure enough she had been murdered and left in a totally different area!
So do I don't exactly see dead people but may have a knack of finding them if they ask me (if that is what it is?) Can I, should I use dowsing to enhance this ability?
