Dowsing & Alternative Health Convention, April 8-10,  (1hr15min lectures)

Dr. Nancy Bodenstein

Vibrationally Speaking

Because everything is vibration, or frequency, it is important to know whether they are good for us or not good for us.  Technology is useful, but not all of it may be good for us.  Foods are being changed to a point that our bodies cannot recognize and use them.  Chemicals used on our foods are causing frequency deficiencies in our bodies.  Essential oils carry frequencies that our bodies may need.  This presentation will be an investigation of some ways to protect your health.

Skills/techniques you’ll learn:

1) Dowse for differences in essential oils.

2) Feel and use the Trifield meter for EMFs.

3) Dowse for frequency 111.

Usually we want direct and obvious communication and guidance, and some are fortunate to get that treat. Most not!

Alan Handelsman    www.sourcehypnosis.com;  www.resonancetuner.com

Romance, Finance, and Resonance: Improve Relationships with People, Money, and Energy 

Put the “fun” back in “dysfunctional!” You are responsible for all the relationships in your life. Luckily, responsibility does not mean blame; it means power. Yes, you do have power – right now - to change your relationships with others, money, work, play, energy fields, your past, your future, your thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and behavior, with your universe, and with your self – your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual self.

Alan’s presentation provides new perspectives and hands-on, concrete experiences that are simple, quick, powerful, and long lasting. Using these simple tools, you will have the opportunity to address basic, serious issues. However, Alan does this using the energy of humor and lightness. 

You can benefit from these methods each day. Through new understanding, new experience, and plenty of laughter, you will leave this workshop a little bit changed, more peaceful and a better dowser.

Laughter can be more satisfying than honor; more precious than money; more heart-cleansing than prayer” - Harriet Rochlin
