Whether you are new to dowsing, or an old pro, I have articles for you.
At Magnificent U, we will explore together the wonderful world of dowsing with a pendulum – from the basic fundamentals to highly advanced, specialized applications, and everything in between. We’ll talk about the tools and methodology of this truly amazing technology.
I made it a blog so you can participate, add, comment, practice, ask questions, and enhance your own experience and the practice of others. Sometimes I will post questions for you to dowse. Then we will share our answers – refining and improving our ability to ask the right questions, stay clear and centered, and look at things in a new light. It’s all about sharing, learning, and growing together. Let’s not forget to laugh.
My name is Takara and I’ll be your host. I’ve been pendulum dowsing for over 20 years for myself and on behalf of my clients. I’ve used everything from expensive pendulums I had shipped in from England to paperclips on a string. I’ve created numerous pendulum designs and offer them in the Dancing Dolphin online store. I’ve created an online pendulum dowsing course and also teach it live in many locations throughout the U.S. and abroad.
I look forward to our time together,

I talk about the Noble C’s a lot. In fact it is I who decided these words all starting with C were noble. They are the words I use to describe the state of being in which everything is in flow, in harmony, and everything you do comes from a place of inner balance, heart-centeredness and love..
It is in that space that every miracle in my life has occurred. It is in that space that intuition is enhanced and your ability to notice it is heightened. When you follow those nudges from the Still Small Voice within, truly amazing things can happen in your life.
I always smile when I suddenly realize that something seemingly miraculous just happened which is in direct alignment with the things I desire and that it occurred because I followed my inner wisdom.
There have been a whole host of those events lately. Whenever these things happen, it lets me know I’m aligned with the Divine and those Noble C’s are fully functioning at the moment.
Three things come to mind immediately when I consider the latest smile-inducing events.
The first began a year or so ago when I was being interviewed on a radio broadcast. Practically every radio interview opportunity I’ve received happened because I followed my intuition and showed up somewhere on line at precisely the right moment to seize an opportunity. That has become quite commonplace in my life. I’m not saying that to brag. I’m saying I’ve done the work, even though the work is never completely done, and I’m reaping the benefits of having made true personal and spiritual growth a priority. On with this story …
As is the case with many of my interviews, it went well and the interviewer and I developed a bond. Krystalya and I talked privately for quite awhile when the interview was over. We discovered we had an enormous amount of things in common from developing our own energy healing tools to being techno-geeks with business and engineering backgrounds. We decided we should stay in touch.
Life happens and you move on and forget the things that have come before. This is particularly true of creatives because we live so fully in the moment and in whatever creation we are developing.
Then suddenly, she crossed my mind and I felt the inner nudge to contact her. We scheduled a phone appointment for 2 p.m. We were engrossed in another extraordinary conversation talking about numerous topics when suddenly my phone battery began to die. When I looked at the time, I was shocked. I said, “This can’t be the time can it?” She was as shocked as I was. It was 5:30. I had to be at a dinner meeting in 45 minutes and the drive would take me 30 minutes of that. So we had to hang up immediately.
Ah … it had been a wonderful connection, the kind that feeds your soul and makes you smile knowing you have yet another soul sister out there in the Universe.
Somewhere in the conversation we talked about her healing symbols and my elixirs. I had just started working on the creation of a protection grid and she mentioned a symbol she had “received” for protection. We decided to put them together in a package. And … just like the Essence of Sound collaboration I have with Jonathan Goldman, where I’ve infused his music into essence form to take all the energy much deeper into the body and out into the energy field, I’ll be infusing several of her symbols into essence form.
If I had called her earlier, I would not yet have the protective grid going and we might not have even considered a collaboration. It’s all in the timing and it’s all about intuition knowing precisely when the timing is right.
Event number two started when I visited Yogaville in the spring. I so rarely get to see my dear friends, Jonathan and Andi Goldman. They are on the road a lot and live in Colorado. I’m now living on the East Coast. So it is wonderful when they come to teach at Yogaville in Virginia because I get to see them for an entire weekend. This year on the last day of the workshop, I was sitting in the dining hall at breakfast having a conversation with a woman who lives at Yogaville. The conversation turned to dolphins.
Everyone always wants to know how I got involved with them. My typical response is that they showed up spontaneously when I learned to meditate – which is true. But when responding to this woman’s inquiry, my inner knowing was to mention the medicine wheel and the book I was using to create it. I asked her if she had ever heard of Sun Bear and Wabun Wind. She just looked at me and smiled saying she had studied with Sun Bear.
Of course the Universe would have me say something about which she is deeply connected. She invited me to come to see her medicine wheel. So after lunch, when the program was over, she and I went to her lovely home and walked the wheel. Later on, Jonathan and Andi also came for a visit and several of us sang songs while playing a big ceremonial drum. It made for a glorious afternoon.
She had invited me back for a visit, but I had not felt prompted to contact her again until very recently. Once again, I had an inner knowing that I should call. We had a lovely conversation and the next thing I know, I am being invited there to co-facilitate a Goddess weekend – something I’ve been wanting to do for ages. We are planning it for Equinox, which is coming up soon.
The final event happened at a recent Not Back to School Picnic for homeschoolers. It’s an annual event that I mostly attend to see the moms I’ve developed friendships with over the years of homeschooling in Virginia. My son and his best friend are older than the other kids. They would be happy just to hang out together without all the others, but agreed to come because I wanted to see my friends.
While there, I saw a friend of mine I haven’t seen in ages. She had lived in Colorado and was now living in the Blue Ridge Mountains in an area I consider to be the most beautiful in Virginia. She and I have gone hiking together and enjoy sharing stories about our spiritual adventures. Somehow in the conversation she mentioned that she would love to have gatherings at her home because she had so much space. I’ve never been to her home, so I said, “You have space?” What a delightful surprise that was. I’ve wanted to do workshops in or around the town where she lives for almost 20 years. I’ve not actually pursued the idea because I rarely spend time there and didn’t know of any facilities or people to contact. We are talking about a gathering. If I hadn’t followed my intuition to go to the picnic, the conversation might never have happened.
Many people are under the false impression that all you have to do is get clear about what you want, do some visualizing, writing, or verbalizing of those desires, and they suddenly manifest. That is only true if you are calm, clear, confident, and connected … AND take action on the inner promptings you receive. It takes a fair amount of work to get into that space. You have to constantly “skim the lake” as my beloved teacher Stuart Wilde used to say – being ever vigilant of your energy and your mental focus. You have to be quite a spiritual warrior from that perspective.
Have a glorious day,
Telesummit Recording Available Below …
I know you will love the things I share in this recording of my interview for the Living Your Vibrant Life Telesummit including the truly life changing “Stepping into Your True Magnificence” meditation exercise, along with many insights and TONS of inspiration for living Your Vibrant Life that I shared.
I really enjoy being interviewed for telesummits, webinars, and radio. Much like working with private clients or speaking from a stage with a live audience, there is a “connection” that occurs which allows me to just “get out of the way” and let the information flow through me that is exactly what the individual or particular audience needs to hear in the moment.
In this telesummit interview, Tandy Elisala and I discuss some powerful conscious manifestation techniques. I also share insights about ways to turbo boost your meditation practice. I discuss the 4 states of being you want to achieve and the 5 practices I recommend everyone utilize to grow personally and accelerate their spiritual journey.

The impact one person can have on a life is mind-boggling. At a time when I was in the pit of despair, I felt “inspired” to visit a New Age bookstore for the first time. How I found the courage to do that is a miracle in itself. I read the title of every book on every shelf in the entire store. I discovered whole sections of information I never knew existed. But nothing seemed to jump out and grab me with the desire to take it home.
I was literally down on my knees with my face almost touching the floor trying to read the books on the bottom shelf in this one area of the store and I came across the book, Affirmations, by Stuart Wilde. Now what you have to realize is that I grew up with a Southern Baptist mom. I’d never ever studied anything even remotely alternative, and here I was bowing down on my knees basically begging for answers and Stuart Wilde entered my life.
Once I’d read Affirmations, I came back for all the rest. I read every book he had out at the time. Then listened to every audio I could get my hands on. I can’t tell you how many times I listened to the crystal cave meditations in 33 Steps Beyond the Earth Plane. Like Stuart, I am able to go into a theta brain-wave state with my eyes open. I call it “clicking into theta.”
I found out from a friend that Stuart was going to be giving a talk in Princeton. I was living in Pennsylvania at the time and decided to make the drive to see him live. After the lecture, I discovered information on a table somewhere about his 8-day Warriors in the Mist training. It was a no-brainer to sign up to attend.
That’s me on the bottom left here with my Arban at Warriors in the Mist in the beautiful Sangre de Christo Mountains of New Mexico.
|Stuart Wilde Serving Food at the Final Feast for Warriors in the Mist|
As you would expect, it was an awesome experience full of wisdom, insight, mystery, lots of fun, and a fair bit of mayhem – just enough to take you out of your comfort zone in a way that only Stuart could pull off with as much flair. I made a few life-long friends there.
|Me on our first day of horseback riding at Warriors in the Mist|
Khris Krepcik, the hooded sage, whom Stuart became very close to, was in my Arban (the group we were divided into for the training). I believe it was the first time they ever met.
Again I’m on the left … hmm I wonder if that means something? LOL (Of course from my perspective facing the camera), I would have been on the right.
Our Arban won the overall competition despite the fact that we were all leaders and there seemed to be no followers. We had a very hard time agreeing on a course of action as we went through the various spiritual warrior training exercises throughout the week. We were able, finally, to work as a team during the competition and when it really mattered, we won.
I met a woman there doing what I considered to be a noble project – trying to assist an orca in captivity to return to her wild pod in the San Juan Islands. Soon after the training, I left my life as a corporate engineer and moved to the San Juans to co-found a non-profit with her for dolphins and whales.
I lived first on an island, then on a sacred mountain, after that in the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico (a place I fell in love with during Warriors in the Mist). I even lived on a million dollar yacht in the South Pacific for a while. In each of these locations, I spent hours communing with nature and meditating often.
I went from Stuart’s theta meditation and metaphysical teachings on to many more. Once I left the environment of the corporation, I began to delve very deeply into metaphysics, spirituality, inner peace, energetic and emotional healing, Divine connection, flowing with the Universe, receiving Divine insights and wisdom directly.
My life has been a glorious adventure and I’m now a bestselling author myself.
Now teaching my own students about advanced energy healing techniques, metaphysics, spirituality, personal empowerment, etc., I often share stories about Stuart and talk about things he taught me, as well as his version of modern-day Toaism. I come back to it again and again in my own personal evolution.
Stuart showed up at precisely the right time and when I jumped off the cliff with his help, I learned to fly.
I believe the image on the cover of his book, The Quickening, is based on this quote: “Come to the edge.’ ‘We can’t. We’re afraid.’ ‘Come to the edge.’ ‘We can’t. We will fall!’ ‘Come to the edge.’ And they came. And he pushed them. And they flew.” ~ Christopher Logue
I think of him often. It always makes me smile.
Much love to you Dear One wherever you are for all that you are and all that brought to my life.
Have a deLightful day,
P.S. If you knew Stuart Wilde, or just appreciated his wisdom, humor, and metaphysical finesse, leave a comment below letting us know how he impacted your life! And if you were in my Arban and in one of the photos above, PLEASE send me a message. I would love to reconnect with those I haven’t been able to keep up with over the years.

As I mentioned in the previous newsletter, I’ve spent the last several years “receiving” and developing several new teachings and technologies for healing, regaining harmony, balance, wholeness, and achieving your dreams. Its a massive upgrade to some of my earlier teachings including Freeway to Freedom and the profound transformation so many people have experienced with my various technologies over the years. It is taking everything to a whole new level. I also realized that since Stuart Wilde, my first teacher, is no longer with us, its time to share the powerful things I learned from him.
- Would you like to start mid-November or would you like to wait until the beginning of January – after the holidays?
- If there is something specific you would like to learn about energy healing, becoming healed and whole, or any of the other topics I discuss, please let me know so I can include it in this training.
I came across this video awhile ago and then it showed up again today. I believe that every moment of every day our soul is sending us signals and its our job to pay attention. Seeing this extraordinary video twice was definitely a sign.
If you know a lot about animal communication, or have never even considered it, this is an extraordinary account of one woman’s ability and the positive difference it makes.
Just like the Animal Communicator in this video who has developed and fine-tuned this Divine gift, you too have been given certain gifts and its your job to discover and express them. It may not be animal communication. Whatever it is, finding it and expressing it will absolutely change your life.
I saw something on Facebook related to 9/11 and the events surrounding that day. http://consciouslifenews.com/911-prove-airplane-hit-pentagon-major-general-albert-stubblebine/1145271/
For some unknown and often perplexing reason I have been a magnet for this sort of thing for many years. Chance encounters with complete strangers, knowing and sometimes even dating men who were special forces, others coming to visit and telling me all this “secret” stuff I’m not sure I ever wanted to know, their heart-felt accounts of some crazy situations and events most people have never even heard of.
There is a dance involved in knowing certain things. Go into anger and fear or rise above it all.
I have come to the place within myself where I know that all is as it should be. The times we are in are forcing the things that were once hidden to now be surfaced and revealed. Sitting in judgment and anger is not what I am here to do.
Developing the ability to “know” when something is true and when something is not by fine-tuning intuition and “feeling” or tuning in to things is a skill worth developing. It has taken many years to perfect that knowing. And it can not operate when you are attached emotionally or are having an emotional reaction or judgment to the information being presented.
When we become an observer of the world and our own life, we step out of the picture long enough to gain a new perspective. Then, from the place of being centered and balanced, we are Divinely guided with actions to take, places to be, and conversations to have.
Shouting about conspiracies on the rooftops does nothing. Saying the one “right” thing at precisely the right moment to the right person can cause huge houses of cards to come falling down.
I don’t operate out of fear or anger. I operate out of love – for all of humanity now and in future generations.
The law of cause and effect ensures that those who mistreat others will be mistreated – often ten, one hundred, sometimes even one thousand fold. It works much like tithing in that way. You do not need to seek vengeance as those who cause suffering ALWAYS suffer greatly in the end.
What you do to another, will be done to you. So even though others do awful things, it is not my job to do harm to them. I may be asked to stop them, to draw attention to what is happening that is unkind, unjust or unfair, but I am not the one here to judge their actions or decide about their punishment.
