Two years ago Dowsing Today carried a rave review of
Heather Bray’s remarkable book on dowsing and healing -
in which she
set out a new approach to dowsing, and a new set of pendulum movements.
The interpretation of these pendulum
movements brings Heather information and insight regarding her client’s
conditions; and to the clients themselves, healing.
The pendulum movements
are interpreted through a ‘wheel’ or chart which Heather has developed.
By developing a new template for pendulum dowsing, she has considerably
advanced our capabilities, especially in the field of Dowsing for
In her new book ~
Past and Future Lives, Wisdom Journeys Through
Time ~ Heather shows how the approach set out in ‘Keys to
Wisdom’ can be applied to a particular field. That field is
sometimes referred to as past life therapy, sometimes regression, and in
Heather’s words ‘Past and Future Lives’.
Past Life Therapy is
not Spirit Release. Regression/Past Life therapy is
about ourself, earlier (or later) versions of which are
manifesting in some way in our current life. Regression
effectively explores these earlier versions of us in a way which helps
us to free ourselves from their burden, and provides insight into our
By contrast, Spirit Release is
usually about someone else, now dead, who is (or aspects of
which are) manifesting in some way and affecting people currently
alive. That ‘someone else’ has not successfully made the great
transition and all or parts of them are stuck
(probably in Huddersfield).
As Heather says …
“Past Life therapy …is a wonderful healing
tool in aiding the personal evolution and development of the individual,
whom, I believe, has a long inheritance of gifts, traumas, and maybe
even so called demons which they have inherited from Past Life
Situations, of which they are vaguely aware, and which they need ~ in a
safe well managed healing situation ~ to revisit and re-member.
But what has all this to do with dowsing ?
“ I have been a dowser for more than
thirty years. My ‘celestial telephone’ is a pendulum which is
constantly moving, its chain held very short (two centimetres or so)
between the thumb and forefinger of my right hand. It is passing
me information which I believe is coming both from within me and from
the realm of Universal Consciousness”
has brought together the dowsing innovations set out in her first book
with additional pendulum movements required in a regression setting.
(This is clearly set out in an appendix at the back of the book.)
“…what is radical and different about my
work is that the whole thing is conducted through rapid dowsing…I
started to wonder if the shifts from scene to scene (during
regression), backwards and forwards through time, could be managed
through the pendulum, and whether the guides would show me swings
appropriate to the situation, which gradually, as different needs arose,
therefore uses dowsing to determine ~ amongst other things ~ the exact
moment to make a shift from one scene, or point in time (in the
regression) to another, in order to gather all possible information
before moving on.
of ‘Keys’ are also vital to the work. These are selected with the
client at a pre-regression session, and are physical representations of
values and energies, perhaps a crystal ~ or the name of an angel ~ used
to bring about clarity. In the regression itself Heather’s
colleague, Hannah, intuits how and where they should be placed on a
plain white background, as each move, however subtle, affects the energy
of the client or their situation in some way.
the book consists of transcriptions of the regressions and progressions
which Heather has facilitated by dowsing. The final part of the
book is a collection of journeys which Hannah has herself made into the
future, with the explicit purpose of recovering wisdom for our troubled
times. These journeys are themselves aided throughout by dowsing.
The dowsing is not mentioned by name, for it would be tedious to keep
repeating, “I then dowsed…”.
and Hannah say …
“It is the intention of the client to
heal themselves, and ours to facilitate, which brings about this sacred
duty. Without correct intention, no work can be done.
“As far as we can understand it, you and I
are in a training programme to transform ourselves for the benefit of
ourselves and everyone else, while serving in environments that are
often very chaotic”.
of this in mind ‘Past and Future Lives’ describes a remarkable example
of advanced dowsing work in real-time situations to bring about healing.
By first developing advanced dowsing
techniques, and then showing how these techniques can be applied in a
specific healing context, Heather has done us all a remarkable
