Dowsing - The Strange

American
          Society of Dowsers


Dowsing is a means of finding water or precious metals buried underground using the help of an inverted pendulum system.  Mostly, two metal rods about 20" long are bent into a 90 degree angle at one end so that they can be held in the hands  while they spin from side to side.   A dowser put the two metal rods in his hands and proceeds to walk around an area of land.  When the metal rods cross each other, forming an "X" the person marks the spot, and keeps going.  When that place has been crossed again several times, and each time it is passed it causes the rods to cross each other, the dowser knows they have discovered something.  Although water and metals are primarily what dowsers look for, they have been known to seek out and find other things.  Some have found dead bodies, some have found other missing items such as watches or important letters or paper money.

There are other means of dowsing that these practitioners use also.  Some people hold a pendulum over a map.  when the pendulum seems to focus on a certain area of the map, they then go looking for whatever it is they want to find.

There is one fairly famous man in england who dowses using astral projection.  He projects himself to a certain place, perhaps a thousand miles away, and begins to look around (with his minds eye) for whatever the client wants him to find.  He doesn't just look for water and metal, he also works with police to find dead bodies.  He claims to have even found ghosts for people that claim a certain property is haunted.

If you'd like to learn more about dowsing, check out the American Dowsing Society.  Also there is another dowsing society in Great Britain.  If you want to surf around the web check out this  great dowsing links page  UPDATE:  The Dowsing links page vanished many years ago but is available in the archive.
Psi-tronics sells a variety of really nice dowsing kits. Go there and buy one!  UPDATE:  Psi-tronics was about to launch when I wrote this article in 1997 but it was a failed startup.  You can buy Dowsing equipment here though.
