About the author
Author Barbara Dowdy-Trabke developed her indomitable spirit and the hardiness needed to endure both harsh weather conditions and personal challenges while living in Alaska. She acquired the strength and skill needed to be a working mother to four children, with a husband off sometimes months at a time working on the Alaskan pipeline.
Barbara came to realize that a person was not just a body with a soul, but was, more accurately, a soul with a body. She believes that maintaining good health and spiritual well-being are the basis of successful living, and is constantly building her personal knowledge base.
Barbara began dowsing in her 20’s and, over time, has increased her ability and understanding of both the practical applications of the major dowsing tools: Pendulum, L-Rod and the Y-Rod, and the mind/body/spirit aspect of the work. She is a Certified Master Herbalist, Iridologist, Reflexologist, MRM Technician and Reiki Master, and a member of the American Society of Dowsers. Barbara enjoys helping others journey along their own spiritual paths, and teaches classes on many aspects of mind/body/spirit healing as well as giving individual readings, and carrying out dowsing work across the country.
