So, what is this mysterious thing called dowsing? It is a method of detecting the energetic patterns around us that are unseen to the eye. To relate to energetic patterns unseen to the eye, think of radio waves, which are invisible forms of electromagnetic radiation that varies in wavelength.
Dowsing is most commonly used in detecting or finding water and was used by our forefathers in farming to find water for the livestock or gardens. Use dowsing rods to locate: water, flame of candle, sharp corner, electromagnetic fields, noxious zones, lay lines, metals, and more.
What are pendulums? As mass or bob on the end of a string or chain, which when pulled, will swing back and forth under the influence of gravity over its central point. Pendulums can be used for timekeeping but also used in place of the dowsing rod. Basic skills are getting answers to questions and locating objects by using dowsing rods or pendulums.
Dowsing is illustrated in cave drawings estimated to be 8,000 years old. Books on dowsing were among the first to be printed in the 16th century.
In 1959 Verne Cameron demonstrated his ability to locate all the submarines in the Pacific Ocean, and determine which belonged to US, Russian, and other countries.
Both Dowsing Rods and Pendulums have been used to locate mines by military authorities.
