What is Dowsing ?
The Reply varies but, commonly is considered to be by many,
"The search for information beyond the five senses, using tools or the body. "
Before 1890, a dowser usually just found water or metal ores, by walking
over the actual site and using a tool of some sort - normally a Y-shaped
twig cut from a hedge.
The word comes from Cornish "dewsing", from Cornish "Dew", Welsh "Duw",
French "Dieu". Close to "divining", which then had the same meaning.
Then the French got clever and started using the pendulum to detect
remedies for illness. A German doctor, Baron Gustav von Pohl, was maybe
the first doctor to use dowsing as part of his practice. He discovered
that bands of adverse influence in a place could make people ill, thus
starting the "geopathic stress" interest.
In the 1930s "adverse energies" became a major subject of dowsing and
location of missing people by dowsing, using maps, became common. As an
extension of this, water-diviners began to use maps to start their
search, only going to a site to get the fine details and mark the spot
Since 1950 dowsing has been used in geology, mining, engineering,law,
medicine, water exploration and various other disciplines.
This is but a small part of the continually expanding Dowsing and Intuition Paradigm.
