When You Lack Focus & Direction: Stop Looking for Your Thing


 

When You Lack Focus and Direction: Stop Looking for Your “Thing”

 

 

Lost Traveler

 

“More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity.” ~Francois Gautier

 

Isn’t it funny—and annoying, and brilliant—how often things turn out to be nothing like we thought they would?

 

Six years ago I was recovering from a breakdown and reacquainting myself with my long dormant artistic side, and I remember spending a lot of time wondering what my “thing” was.

 

You know, that one specific thing in this life that I was destined to do to be fulfilled, and ideally from which I would earn a comfortable living.

 

I had always loved creativity, and particularly art, and had always wanted that to be my thing; I would be an artist, sell my work, and live comfortably on the proceeds.

 

There were a couple of problems with my plan, however. One was my upbringing, which told me that art was unrealistic as a way to make a living. As a result, I had done all sorts of things that were nothing to do with my original dream, many of which I hated (hence that final breakdown).

 

That mindset is not at all unusual in Western culture and is something many of us have to move beyond, but there was something else too.

 

I could not seem to pin down my love of art and creativity to one single focus. I experimented endlessly, on my own and in classes, with everything from acrylics to oils, from printing to sculpture.

 

And still I kept thinking, how will I ever know which is my thing? What’s the one thing I’ll be really good at and so endlessly enthused by that I won’t continue this constant dabbling?

 

How will I ever be a credible artist if I paint in a different style every time I put brush to canvas? How will I ever fulfill my dream of making a living doing what I love when I seem so scattered and unfocused?

 

Since no clear answer was forthcoming at that point, I just kept going.

 

Sometimes I envied those who seemed to be born already knowing what their thing was, like my friend who always knew she’d be a vet. I thought they must have or know something I didn’t. That perhaps there was something wrong with me for being so fickle and apparently unable to settle on just one thing.

 

But as it turns out, that seemingly flighty, unfocused, shallow dabbling was an essential part of the story, and not at all the waste of time I feared.

 

I learned two key things about what I’ve come to see as the “myth of the thing.”

 

  1. There is what you are passionate and curious about and would do for free (and often do), and
  2. There are all the ways in which that comes through you.

 

You are like a prism, full of your own unique mix of colors that join together to radiate a single beam—you.

 

In my experience, it’s unhelpful and limiting to assume that you’ll whittle it down to a single thing or work it out with your mind. After all, your mind has no real knowledge of your heart.

 

Your “thing that is not a thing” is already there inside you, but without taking action over and over from a place of curiosity and passion, you won’t give your personal and utterly unique filter a chance to make itself known.

 

I’ll always be insatiably curious and I think that’s a fantastic trait to have, not a handicap. Today, I love to paint, draw, write, bake, tend my plants, make things, research, gather and share information, read books and blogs, spend time at the beach, explore spirituality, travel, and learn whatever I can about whatever catches my magpie eye.

 

You might think I’m still dabbling. But all those things feed and become my thing that is not a thing.

 

So what is my “thing”? It’s being what I can’t help being. It’s being curious and creative; it’s exploring, playing, demonstrating and sharing what I learn through the filter of art and creativity; it’s helping, supporting, and encouraging people to find their own unique ways to express themselves creatively.

 

It’s doing what I’d do anyway and letting it evolve into something that feeds both me and others, and yes, it’s even starting to bring in an income. I am an artist, only in many more ways than the single one I envisaged.

 

My magpie eye isn’t hindering me from finding my thing; it’s part of how my thing manifests. That realization has changed everything, and my life is infinitely richer for it.

 

Without it, I would not have tried or learned so many things. I would not now have both a wealth of techniques and experiences and ideas to share, nor the understanding and empathy that comes with having trodden the messy meandering path myself. Both of those important factors unexpectedly became part of my work now.

 

While there are many things we all know to do to help us find out who we really are and what we’re here to do, like journaling or meditation, I have found the following also helpful in my quest.

 

It takes time, so give it time. 

 

I know that’s hard, especially if you feel stuck in an unfulfilling job or other restricting life situation. Patience and perseverance will stand you in good stead, so do what it takes to cultivate them. (I suggest a spiritual or energy practice.)

 

Widen your view.

 

Your “thing” won’t only show up in the obvious places. My creativity doesn’t just appear in the studio; it’s in how I put a meal together, how I arrange my desk, how I use my day, right down to the tiny moments.

 

Listen to intuitive nudges.

 

Have you developed an unexpected interest in historical fiction? Head to the library. Do you have a sudden urge to grow something? Visit the garden center.

 

Not only might you find what you think you’re looking for, you also increase the chances of discovering something new that contributes to your clarity or brings a new opportunity. 

 

Think of a task you do regularly that you find mundane.

 

Ask yourself, what could I change about how I approach this to make it fun or interesting? How can I apply my unique way of seeing the world here? It could be a mindset change, an intention or affirmation, or it could be the actual physical way you perform the task.

 

I have a system for folding my laundry that allows my mind to roam freely for a few minutes; that inner roaming brings in new ideas and insights. Thus laundry becomes not something that wastes my precious time but something that enhances it and brings me more into who I am.

 

 

Stop looking for that elusive “thing.” Start living your life in all the ways that are exciting and interesting to you, right down to the tiny daily details. Explore, create, discover, absorb.

 

With some thought and imagination you can do this within your current job, with your children, when you’re doing daily tasks. It doesn’t have to be grand and time-consuming.

 

And then you will find that your thing is simply who you can’t help being. The more of your unique inner rainbow you reveal, the more it will become clear who you are and what you are here to do. Just be prepared for it to look a little different—and a lot more beautiful—than you thought.

When You Lack Focus & Direction: Stop Looking for Your Thing.

The Soul is a Morphic Field


The following is from my forthcoming book, Awesome Your Life: A Journey to Ecstatic Joy Through Soul-making.

The Soul is a Morphic Field

Some people are very uncomfortable with the world “soul.”  To them, it conjures up connotations of dogmatic religious doctrine—souls damned or souls saved, tortured or redeemed.  But I’m not talking about the soul in any dogmatic sense.  I’m talking about the soul as an energetic reality.

New life

It’s my understanding that the energy traditionally and poetically known as the soul corresponds to the phenomenon which the biologist Rupert Sheldrake called the morphic field.

Sheldrake first developed his theory of morphic fields as a means of answering a huge problem faced by biologists: how do organisms take on their particular forms? Most of us who aren’t biologists assumed that the discovery of the DNA molecule resolved this question—but biologists know it didn’t.  The mystery of how organisms take on their specific shapes remains unsolved and unaccounted for by DNA.  DNA tells organisms what type of cells to form—but it doesn’t tell those cells what shapes to take.  The DNA and cells are the same in both our arms and our legs—yet our legs and arms don’t have the same shape.  So what tells a leg to form into a leg and an arm to form into an arm?

Sheldrake posited that everything has a morphic field surrounding it (“morphic” comes from the Greek word for form, morphe) which tells it how to form into whatever sort of thing it’s meant to be—a human, a fern, a bacterium, a crystal.  There are many levels and many kinds of fields.  Each general thing has its own distinctive field, but so does each individual within that category of thing. So there’s a morphic field for the human species but there’s also a morphic field for each individual human.

These fields are stable in the sense that they run on memory— for example, the field of a species will produce new members of the species based upon the collective memory of form lodged in that species’ field.  Yet these fields are not static.  They’re intelligent and responsive. They can alter, evolve and expand when new information comes into the species field as individual members of that species learn new skills.

Morphic fields accomplish this spread of positive innovation through the principle of morphic resonance. Morphic resonance just means that like influences like. So if the morphic field of one individual resembles the morphic field of another individual, then those two fields will be able influence and act upon each other, even at great distance, because morphic resonance is non-local.  So if I’m a monkey and I do all the hard work of being the first monkey ever to learn to play the guitar, I’ve created an innovation in the energy patterns of my individual morphic field. I’ve changed my field through the introduction of new information (my mad guitar-playing skills). If you’re a monkey on the other side of the world, it will now be easier for you to learn to play the guitar because your individual monkey field will be influenced by the innovation in my individual monkey field through morphic resonance.  This influencing happens because our morphic fields have a similar shape to begin with since we’re both monkeys.  So we see that morphic resonance is the means by which morphic fields act upon one another and communicate information.

Yet it’s not just similarity of physical shape which can make individuals capable of influencing one another through morphic resonance—it’s also similarity of behavior or action.  For example, in religious rituals, participants perform actions that have been performed over thousands of years by other believers in the same tradition.  Through their ritual action, participants thus connect themselves via morphic resonance with the larger morphic field of the religion built up over time, and they thereby gain intuitive access to the knowledge and wisdom stored within that field.

It’s important to understand that morphic fields are creative.  They create based out of habitually ingrained patterns, patterns that have become so habitual that they’re unconscious.  This means that a field will continue to produce the same results unless new innovation, new information is introduced into it.

So what does this mean for you?

The Care and Keeping of Your Morphic Field

There are levels of your morphic field which unconsciously create certain things about you that might be damn hard to change and which you probably wouldn’t want to alter anyway: say the level of biological organization which tells your fingernails how to shape into human fingernails.  Your field has learned over eons of evolution just how to make those fingernails— and they’re great. The shape of your fingernails is a deep habit in your field that you don’t need to change.

But there are other levels of the field that organizes you which perhaps you do want to change: say, for example, the field that organizes your consciousness, your perception of the world.  It’s a new age truism that your consciousness creates your reality.  I would offer that it’s actually more accurate to say that your morphic field (or soul) creates your consciousness which then creates your experience of reality. It’s actually not possible to work directly on raising your consciousness since consciousness is not a “thing” in itself but an effect organized by the morphic field.  What it is possible to do is work on your morphic field, your fabric of unconscious memory, which will then alter your consciousness.

The way to work on your morphic field is to introduce innovative information to it.  Unfortunately, this is not a quick and easy process.  The innovation has to strike deep for the field to be able to creatively act upon it— the innovation itself needs to become a habit, since the field creates unconsciously, out of habit.  This is why self-realization is not a one-day project.  This is why we need to do our spiritual practices (more about those to come) every day.  We do it to ingrain new habits and thereby alter our field at its basic, unconscious level so it will produce for us new creative results in our consciousness and thereby in our life.

Happily, though, there is a shortcut.  We can speed up the work of making our souls by deliberately practicing actions which align us with the morphic resonance of the mythic journey.  The mythic journey is an ingrained pattern in the morphic field of the human species.  It pervades every culture and every time.  In effect, the journey is a series of rituals.  But these are not the rituals of the large group, meant to affirm the regular processes of communal life.  These are the mystery rituals of the solitary adventurer, of one who steps out of the social order so that she can bring back a new truth which will change everything and everyone.  In other words, these are the rituals not of stability but of evolution.

When we consciously undertake participation the actions of the mythic journey (answering the heart’s call, accepting the heart’s call, meeting our guide, undergoing trials in the dreamworld, etc.) we connect our individual morphic field to the fields of all those who have preceded us in this great work.  We begin to resonate with heroes and heroines across time and to gain intuitive access to their knowledge and experience. This resonance makes it exponentially easier for us to achieve our own transmutation.  In one sense, though the individual genius we find and eventually live is uniquely ours, we might say that it’s also the collective treasury of truth forged by those who dared to step outside the bounds of conventional social life and into the dark forest of the soul’s interior, a treasury whose riches we claim when we walk the same wild path and embody its resonance.

So we can alter our morphic field through changing the thoughts, feelings, memories and experiences that we practice—through rewriting the information in the field.  When we’ve changed the images in our field, the field then works on us, on our consciousness and on our experience, altering the way we perceive ourselves and the world.

I call this work of putting new images into our field and changing our morphic field for the better the work of soul-making.  The more we evolve our own fields through soul-making, the more sensitively we can perceive and interact with the morphic fields (souls) of others.  We become both highly receptive and highly influential.

As we make our souls into evolved fields, our genius is nurtured and our presence and everything we create becomes charged and capable of positively altering the fields of others.  In this process, we become more essentially human—which is to say, paradoxically, more divine. As we become more essentially human, our field gains greater influence over other humans through morphic resonance because like affects like. We are able to affect others at a deeper level because we have become more active on the deeper level ourselves. This is what it means to be a great poet, a great maker.

We change our souls by using the power of our imaginations and as we do this our imagination becomes less the agent of our will and more the organ of a visionary perception.  We become able to see and commune with the souls / morphic fields of plants, animals, other people, groups, gods.  We become able to detect what Emerson called “the metamorphosis”—the spiritual flow of relationship, thought and evolution moving around and underneath the whole world of manifest form.  The soul-maker poet is able to see the dance of spiritual forms which underlies and pervades all physical form.  Because the poet has this spiritual perception, her mind is not stuck in the literal and the material.  She can see the flow, the relationships, the energies and ideas underlying all things.  Because she can see these relationships she can see the meaning of things, because nothing has meaning outside of its relationships.  The poet is then able to express and communicate this astounding perception of the underlying flow to others through her use of language, action, presence and everything else.

To make our soul means first to come to understand that our soul, our field, is the source of everything we are, that our material fate is determined by it.  We can then shift our focus from trying to control or resist external reality and instead focus on enlarging and purifying the images, feelings, memories and thoughts that shape our soul / field.  As the images, feelings, and memories of our soul change, the soul then acts upon us and alters the form of our being.  The soul evolves our spiritual organs, making us capable of visionary perception and beneficial influence upon the souls of others.

First we shape our souls through our deliberate choice of new thoughts, feelings, memories, experiences—through our spiritual practice and our decision to undergo the mythic journey.  Then our soul, thus thus nurtured, takes over and works on us.  It changes our perception, our circumstances, our abilities.  It evolves us and makes us capable of evolving others.

In an important sense, our souls don’t belong merely to the physical bodies we currently inhabit.  The field of energy, knowledge and feeling that we shape during this lifetime will continue after this body and this local personality have dissolved.  Our souls are magnetic fields of organizing possibility.  After this body fades, the magnetic energy field we’ve created in our souls will go on to call forth a new body and a new personality, this time differently shaped based on what we have succeeded in bringing into the field.  Furthermore, because what we make of our own field affects the collective field, the collective soul of humanity benefits from our growth.

Manifestation


Manifestation.

A no-nonsense, simple step by step guide to reaching your goals, achieving greatness, and creating your world.

i

First and foremost, just because you master manifestation does not mean that you will no longer have challenges. Challenges are what life is all about. And in fact, manifestation mastery can present a whole new set of challenges.

I hesitated writing this post for a long time because manifestation really can be dangerous and mess up someone’s life, but on the other hand, sickness and health have a lot to do with manifestation, and manifestation mastery can lead one to wellness.

This is not for the lazy. Manifestation is word, thought, and deed. As long as we are in these physical bodies, sitting on a couch just focusing on what we want is not likely to bring us closer to our goals.

Manifestation is not ignoring reality. You can create your own world, but it is a world in harmony with everyone else’s. That doesn’t mean that you can hurt other people and choose to ignore it. Karma will come back to you one way or another. It also doesn’t mean that you should choose to ignore drama or other people’s plight. Instead, try to “be the change you want to see in the world.” And manifestation can make your actions have a greater, more positive impact.

And word of caution: I have gotten so deep into the ability to create my own world that I was beginning to leave my loved ones behind. While this choice is not wrong or right, just know that you can go down a path that could be difficult to come back from.

Another word of caution: Surely you have heard the phrase, “Be careful what you wish for.” Imagine making a wish that you thought could never come true. You make this wish casually, without a second thought. And it does in fact come true. Maybe you wish you had waited to get married, longing for the single life, and six months later you are in the middle of a divorce losing everything you think you have. I speak from personal experience; the most important thing you can do before you start learning to manifest is to align your mind with positive thinking. Make sure your thoughts are conscious and purposeful. What you think of, you will attract. Imagine having the power to attract anything you think about easily and relatively quickly. It’s not easy to undue something you’ve started. I cannot stress this enough, “Be careful what you wish for.”

his is a step-by-step guide to learning how to manifest anything you want. Spend lots of time on every step, especially the first ones, regardless of how boring or easy they may seem.

    1. Learn to see things positively

If you think negative thoughts you will attract negativity. You may try to achieve something positive for yourself, but negative thoughts will taint it, like a mutated achievement.

    1. Learn to appreciate what you have now

Understand that one way or another you have brought everything that is in your life, into your life by your choice. If this is a hard concept to understand or accept, take your time, because it is a necessary concept to grasp in order to learn how to properly appreciate yourself and your own power.

Cherish your life. Appreciate your challenges. Thank whatever deity or force you believe in for your path, your karma. Look at life as a game. It’s time to take control and start playing by your own rules. It’s as if you are now taking control of the paddle. But don’t forget that your life, for better or for worse, brought you to this point.

    1. Redefine yourself

It’s all relative.

You are rich. Don’t believe it? Consider the fact that you have access to the internet, which is more knowledge than anyone had up until recently. And knowledge is power.

You are healthy. Compare yourself to people that are dying and chances are you will realize that you are very lucky to be as healthy as you are.

You are lucky. There are people born without arms and legs. There are women stoned to death for nothing but false rumors. If you are reading this page on the internet, then in all likelihood, you are luckier than more than half the people living this world today.

And don’t let stupid little things get you down or ruin your day. Besides, it’s all stupid little things in the grand scheme of things, right? If you have what you used to call a “very bad day,” focus on the positives of the day and be happy about it.

2. Rid yourself of desire

If you “want” something, you have just made a declaration to the universe that you want something, which comes with the fact that you do not have something. This will continue to be, so long as you want it. Desire is weak. Wanting is weak. You will learn to choose.

3. Begin thinking about goals. Envision vividly without “wishing” for them

Instead of wanting something, choose it. Spend lots of time fantasizing about it; envision yourself with this thing you choose, and know that you already have it. It’s just a matter of time before you actualize it. And do not spend a second worrying about how much time it takes. That is completely irrelevant (the more you realize how irrelevant time is, the faster things happen for you).

4.  Get a book

This is the routine I recommend, but you can develop your own. I got a book made with unbleached unrefined paper put together with fair trade labor. I wanted nothing but good intensions and positive vibrations throughout my ritual. I sleep with this book under my pillow.

5.  Write down all long term goals on the first page

This is the first thing you do when you get the book. You write down some long term goals. Only write down goals which you believe you can and will achieve! You can add more and more advanced goals into the book later, but if you question your ability to win the mega-millions lottery then this is not the time to put that goal in here as it will make this whole manifestation program feel disingenuous.

6. Read the goals every night before bed

And fantasize about life when you have achieved these goals. Know you will manifest all of these goals. Live it in your head. Meditate on it. Then sleep on it.

7.  Write down in the book a small goal for the next day

Pick things that you have complete control over. For instance, “I will have a good workout tomorrow, and I will have fun at work.” Date it. Know it will happen. Envision it. Stick to what you have complete control over for at least a week. And don’t add too much too fast. Maybe you almost always miss your workout, have bad days at work, and you never make it home in time for diner. Don’t try to conquer all of these in one day. Baby steps. This phase can take a week or a few months. Never move too fast and do not let anything go down on that paper that you don’t make come true!

8. Write down a goal for the next day that requires a bit of luck

Once you completely trust yourself it’s time to start picking things like “I will not be late for work today.” This is mostly under your control, but you could get stuck in an traffic due to an accident or get a flat tire. But not once you put it in this book!

Make the goals more and more challenging, like, “I will squat at least 10lbs more than I ever have,” or “I will make bob laugh at work.”

9. Continue with one to two goals a day, progressively moving towards more advanced goals

Begin adding goals that have slightly less to do with what is within your conventional control and more to do with what you would have referred to as luck before you started this program.

For instance, “I will get a good parking spot when I go grocery shopping,” or “”I will meet someone interesting at yoga, “or, “I will hit the light at that busy intersection at green on my way home from work today.

10.    Reassess original long term goals

Maybe they have changed slightly or significantly. Make them as specific and descriptive as possible. Start focusing on them as often as possible.

11. Make individual daily goals contribute to long term goals

Every night some of your daily goals should coincide with your long term goals. You should also start adding weekly and monthly goals as well. For instance, if you have a long term goal to make six figures, then you may have a goal to get a raise by the end of the month, and a goal to do well on a project by the end of the week and a daily goal of being focused and excellent at your job. If your goal is to get down to 8% body fat or to run a marathon or to get a raise or to start a business, it’s time to start focusing on these major goals by breaking them down into smaller goals and focus on the whole picture and its pieces.

12.  Prepare to take it to the next level

At some point you will not need the book. At some point you will just be one of those people that everything just seems to work out for (provided you followed the first steps properly and are careful and consciences about your choices). I don’t know what path this kind of success will lead you to. For some, they may run for office. For others, they may learn to see love and/or God in every being and before you know it they end up meditating 24 hours a day on top of a mountain before they starve to death with nothing but divine energy pulsing through their body.

There is no right or wrong in this case. Just be careful and conscientious.

Exploring the Subconscious with Dowsing


Know thyself. That good advice goes back all the way to the days of Plato and Socrates, and the ancient Greek inscription at the Temple of Delphi. But sometimes, knowing yourself is a lot harder than it should be, especially if you are out of touch with what is going on at the subconscious level.

Even though our conscious, rational mind determines what choices we make in life, the hidden part of ourselves, our subconscious mind, is equally important. If these two halves of your mind are out of sync, you may find that everything becomes more difficult. Illnesses, accidents, anxieties, and fears are some ways the subconscious tries to get our attention. If your subconscious doesn’t agree with what you’d like to do, making changes becomes nearly impossible.

Dowsing is the perfect tool to talk to the subconscious mind and find out what’s going on beneath the surface. In many ways, it’s like the old-timer walking a field with a forked stick, trying to find water. In this case, you will use a pendulum to explore the subconscious and try to strike those deep veins of truth that are flowing beneath.

A pendulum can be anything that can dangle in a balanced way on a chain or string. Hold your pendulum in your dominant hand and tell yourself, “Show me a yes.” You are programming yourself to recognize a positive answer. My yes response is a clockwise circle, but yours may move counter clockwise or back and forth. Once you’ve established your yes, ask for a no. It may take some time to get your pendulum moving with just your thoughts, but you’ll eventually find that it gets easier with practice. For more help in learning to dowse, see my book, Intuition in an Instant.

Once you become comfortable with dowsing, you will have a valuable tool to help you explore your hidden motivations, much like a therapist might in a counseling session. You will want to get in the habit of talking to your subconscious on a regular basis. To do so, take a few moments to center yourself. Close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Once you are in a relaxed state, hold your pendulum and ask if you can connect with your subconscious mind. Then ask yourself for the name of your subconscious. This will help you access your subconscious more easily. Once you have a name, use your pendulum to confirm that this is what your subconscious wants to be called. In general, you may find it best to talk to your subconscious as if you were talking to a child. Be gentle with yourself and offer thanks for all the hard work it has been doing on your behalf. Then be quiet and ask what it is feeling. Something might come to mind quickly, an emotion or a thought. If you are having problems with a particular project or goal, you might want to check in with your subconscious and use your dowsing skills to explore what’s going on. Deep-rooted blocks, false assumptions, and self-limiting attitudes can be buried deep in the subconscious. First you have to identify these blocks, and then you can begin to release them with the help of your pendulum. For instance, if you determine that the phrase, “I don’t deserve,” is rooted in your subconscious, you can do a clearing to help erase that from your mind.

Get settled in your favorite dowsing place. Take a few moments to center yourself and take a few deep, complete breaths. Calling upon your higher self to assist you, say out loud or to yourself, “I ask my higher self to examine my subconscious mind and remove the blocks that are related to ______ (the negative statement). Fill the space that is created with love and whatever I need most at this time.”

Dowse again to check and see if the block remains. If it does, you can talk with your subconscious and present reasons why that statement is false. Someone who deep down feels she doesn’t deserve all the success she has experienced might say to her subconscious, “We do deserve all the good we have in our life. We have worked hard to achieve our goals. We are a good person and we always try our best.” Then dowse to see if the subconscious is now ready for a clearing, and repeat the process.

Another way to use dowsing to interact with your subconscious is when you want to make a major change in your life. If you are calling on willpower to lose twenty pounds, or quit smoking, or tackle a big project, check to make sure your subconscious is in agreement. If your subconscious doesn’t want the change to happen, most likely it won’t. That is worth repeating: you will not be successful in reaching your goals unless your subconscious is open to the idea.

Anytime you call upon willpower to make some sort of change, you are using your logical, rational, conscious mind to set it in motion. You will spend a lot of time thinking about your goal, perhaps drawing up a detailed plan that you can put into action. You tell yourself, “I can do this. I will put these steps into action and I will succeed.” But there are many times when that’s not enough. Is it lack of willpower, or is it a tug of war between the conscious and subconscious mind?

As a dowser, you have a distinct advantage. You can get in touch with the underlying motivations and beliefs of your subconscious simply by asking questions and using your pendulum.

Start by asking, “Are there subconscious blocks to this goal I would like to achieve?” If you get a positive response, you can follow with other questions to understand what exactly it is, and then clear it. Call upon your higher self to assist you with removing whatever obstacles the subconscious has placed upon this goal.

Understanding what is going on inside the subconscious mind is a good place to start dowsing, because the process helps to remove obstacles—both to the goals we want achieve and to the intuition we want flowing in our lives. The clearer we are, the more accurate our dowsing will be. That journey starts by “knowing thyself.”
