About Dowsing

What is Dowsing?

Aleister Crowley, a very wise man and great scholar, once said that the force which moves a dowsing rod back and forth will someday take man to the stars (The Book of Thoth).



Dowsing is the ancient art of finding water, minerals and other objects that seem to have a natural magnetic, electromagnetic or other perhaps unknown energy. Energies that the body seems to detect with its built-in, laboratory demonstrable sensors, that are no more mysterious than seeing, hearing or feeling, and seem to be natural to all of us. As it is with music, many persons can develop a degree of dowsing skill with training and practice.

A certain visual scene may cause a feeling in your stomach and probably other unnoticed subconscious reactions. It may be that similar types of subtle unnoticed subconscious reactions, possibly from water or other sources, may give a subconsciously controlled response by means of the numerous-types of dowsing devices.

The purpose of dowsing clubs is to share experiences, successes or failures and to gather information about this phenomenon. It's an exciting hobby and draws together people with open and searching minds. This searching has led to the discovery that we are sensitive to and respond to many subtle energies. The dowsing device seems to be simply a connection between our sensing system and our conscious mind. It's a fascinating world we live in.

The Dowsing Tools

A dowsing tool appears to be simply a read-out, interface or communication device. It seems to be controlled through or by your subconscious, or something of that nature, although I'm sure there are many other factors involved. My observation has been that most experienced or professional dowsers use all the basic dowsing tools. These are usually the L Rod, Y Rod, Pendulum and the Bobber. It depends on which one is handy, or quickly made by cutting a clothes hanger or hanging some object on a string. Usually, it is just the most convenient one for the particular job. Dowsing devices come in all sizes, shapes and materials. It doesn't seem to matter very much to most experienced dowsers what the dowsing tool is made of. Although many dowsers have their favorites and some even swear by a particular tool that works well for them, it appears that all the dowsing tools seem to work equally well when used by experienced dowsers. It is what you get used to, and what feels good to you, that should determine your choice.
