Goals come in all categories

Share This Post

Goals come in all categories, big and small, short and longterm, internal and external, and dowsing can help with all of them.

Added to what is already known about successful goal setting like SMART goals from business
coaches and motivational speakers, and manifesting principles from the New Thought
Movement, is the importance of tapping into and listening to the voice within to identify:

  • your core values,
  • your direction in life (this is your core intention also called your ‘why’), and to
  • develop and receive on-going guidance and support in following that path from the inner
    voice of wisdom within.
    This allows for amazing things to happen that are also deeply soul satisfying.
    On the mundane side
    You can write down your short term goals (daily or weekly). This is your ‘to do’ list that is a
    reminder of both what has to be done right now and what you would like to accomplish today.
    You can then dowse out your priorities of what to focus upon, and the order in which to tackle
    them. You can dowse over the yellow pages, a Google listing, Angie’s List, to determine who to
    call for help. As problems come up to be solved, you can write down a list of possible reasons
    and another on possible solutions, and dowse these lists out.
    Identifying and Clearing Resistance
    If you encounter inner resistance on attending to important tasks, or goals that you say you want
    or need to do, you can use dowsing charts and checklists to locate the reasons for self-sabotage
    or procrastination: negative beliefs, judgments, doubt and fear, bad memories, and unresolved
    upsets or trauma. Should you find any of these inner underlying reasons for being stuck, you can
    then dowse with clear intent to heal, clear or otherwise to resolve them.
    You can also dowse for your level of allowance versus level of resistance for accomplishing any
    given task or goal. This is done using a percentage chart. With dowsing you can both ask to raise
    your motivation or level of acceptance of that goal, or lower your resistance to it doing the work
    – providing that doing so is acceptable on the ‘soul’ level.
    Why you need to find your ‘Why’
    Whatever your goal, you cannot ignore your soul desires or push against your ‘prime directive’.
    After a prolonged time of being severely off course and ignoring all the warning bells, your soul
    can revolt, perhaps setting up ‘accidents’, illness and other serious problems as an ‘opportunity’
    for you to reconsider what you are doing and correct.
    Dowsing medium to long-range goals
    List what you would like to achieve in the major areas of your life: health, love, relationships,
    family, home, community, fun/recreation, travel, work, financial, personal growth, spiritual, etc.
    These would include those things that you want to achieve this year, over the next 5, 10 or
    lifetime goals. Then go inside and dowse out the strength of strong motivating energy each goal
    has for you consciously, subconsciously, and finally on a soul level. Focus your efforts on those
    with the biggest energetic pull.
    Goals fall into categories:
  1. internal or external – you decide what you want or need to do, or someone else sets them
    and requires you to comply.
  2. have deadline dates for completion or are open ended.
  3. have strong negative consequences for not doing them or are without
    sufficiently clear negative consequences
  4. have strong positive payoffs that motivate you towards action or lack sufficient rewards
  5. clearly relate strongly to your core values or don’t
  6. clearly relate strongly to your core purpose/mission/direction in life or don’t
  7. relate to just everyday, routine needs (your ‘to do’ list) or deal with the bigger picture for
    your life
  8. relate strongly to resolving your on-going issues, negative repeating patterns or not
  9. relate to resolving a crisis or emergency situation or not
  10. relate to creating balance in all areas of life or are just focused on one area
    One reason that New Year’s Resolutions fail is when they are often just things
    that ‘would be nice’ if they happened. They may sound good, but lack real strategy, a
    deadline to finish, or a burning desire to see it to the end. They may sound like things
    your mother would like you to do like ‘clean up your room’.
    What’s your passion?
    Goals that tend to get done even when they require tremendous effort are those for which you
    are committed. You have burning desire – like getting married, or moving into your own home.
    I have lots of examples of this from my own life. So watch for an upcoming blog coming soon
    called “Under, Over, Around and Through”.
    Dowsing the Big Picture
    Dowsing can also assist you to assess your skills, talents, personality traits, preferences, likes
    and dislikes, and narrow down your interests to help you identify your life path and primary
    goals. This is the part that Mark Hurwich and I will spend most of our time discussing on a free
    teleconference call February 12.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

Where can I get some?

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
