You can dowse for anything. Just keep thinking about the target. You can also use just about anything... I've used wire coat hangers and wooden sticks.

A fun thing to do is use some silver as a target. It can be a ring or an old coin. Drop it out in your yard and use your dowsing tools to "find " it. It's a great way to make believers out of folks who don't think it works. When those rods move in their hands, they are shocked.

nope.

I knew an old woman that worked for the U.S. govt dowsing wells in remote areas. She was incredibly accurate. never missed one. She dowsed at least a 100 wells for private people and govt.

just don't try to make money dowsing except to get paid for water wells.

Alot of people dowse for gold etc. They NEVER find it. There is some universal law against it? I've known alot of dowsers. Even that old lady couldn't make any money on dowsing for precious metals/treasures. She could tell you where a vein ran, but not a vein that held enough gold to make much money.

frustrated the hell out of her.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9831451


We hired a dowser (dowsing) couple when we were going to drill our well. They found nothing on our propety or surrounding area. Sure enough, all of the wells in our neighborhood have 200ft - 500ft of casing.

They didn't want monetary payment either. We paid them in apple pies.

Re: Water Dowsing
I've found two aquafers on my property using metal dowsing rods made from thin stainless. Also drowsed my parent's property for where they wanted to build a house - there was no water & that's what you want. It's not good news to have an aquafer or any sort of water running under where you live, I won't go into the why but it'll make you sick and cause all sorts of health problems.

Re: Water Dowsing
Many years ago when I was in the third grade picked a Y shaped stick and walked around the park across the street from our apartment building until the stick pointed down on its own it scared me senseless.

This were back in the days when even a public education touched on many topics and although had no clue as to the proper use the dowsing stick it did indeed forcibly point down.

Years later found out that Tibbetts Brook ran underground in the area and probably a tributary water source flowing eventually to the Hudson River.

If you read the government website pertaining to water dowsing they bring up the point that water in many areas is abundant underground and dowsing is no big deal however, this third grader pinpointed an underground brook.

Hope to have some fun with this on our small ranch in Wyoming before the well diggers arrive to dig our well.

 Quoting: SilverPatriot


I've used a Y-shaped fruit tree divining rod before when I was younger. I cannot explain its "flip" as it was like it was being pulled. At that time I thought maybe it was just the awkward hold that caused the branch to eventually flip once a bit too much pressure was applied by one hand or another. What is strange is the hold you must use. It has to be from the inside and with the elbows outward at right angles. Otherwise, as explained
To me at that time it simply won't work.

It definitely "worked" however I never dig down to see if there was water.

Pretty cool/fun harmless stuff.

Re: Water Dowsing
This isn't directly related to the practice of dowsing, but it's about water, so it's relevant.

The Secrets of Water, The Documentary of Viktor Schauberger

[link to www.youtube.com (secure)]

This spans the 20th century with the work of Viktor S. and then his sons. He studied the way water moves, when a river flows it flows in a spiral in the bed. So he found different ways to control the flow of water, for flood control, erosion control, and then much more esoteric uses of the knowledge of the way water wants to behave.

His sketches and models look like alien technology, I think he discovered implosion technology? I should watch it again, the concepts were fascinating and the application of his ideas is decades ahead of its time.

Years ago had studied dowsing and chi energy. Was out hiking one day without any water and was getting very thirsty, when i came to the top of a big hill. Decided to try an experiment. Held out fingers of right hand horizontlly (sending energy) with my eyesight aligned with where my hand was pointing (called the "eye-beam"). Held up left hand vertically like a radar dish (receiving emergy).

Scanned the area below me slowly, until i felt a twitch in my left hand. Went down the hill to where my fingers (and eyes) had been pointing. Found a small spring of grest-tasting water bubbling out of the ground at that very spot.

There was no stream from the spring to indicate it was there. True story.

If this is synonymous with "witching" for water, I would completely avoid it like any occult practice. Many legitimate scholars warn against it. Truly nothing to mess with.

This works. Some tourist left metal rods at a ghost tour in Mansfield. I picked them up and started looking for ghosts with them. They started moving in one direction. I got scared but then noticed water pipes leading to a toilet in one of the cells.

Re: Water Dowsing
My uncle was a water dowser for his entire adult life.
He was actually very good at it, was used by farms and large companies looking to build. He would be called in when more scientific means failed.

He used a wooden dowsing stick he got from a tree. Nothing fancy.

I always thought maybe it had something to do with the electrical current running through his body, when he came close to a lot of water.

It's been said it runs in families, although i've never tried it myself.

Re: Water Dowsing
I use dowsing mot just for water.

I made my own dower.. one steel coat hanger remove the top hook, cur the remaining steel in half and then the short end straighten to make a L shape. use two own pens remove the ink etc then place the short ends into the pen, allow enough at the bass to bend it to stop the pen from falling down. hold my using the pen not tight and allow the steel to move at will.
A cross is when the 2 cross over each other showing a yes and a strong sign, it the ends turn out wards it is a no and nothing there.

THis works and is also good for any here that use dowsing for other reasons, it does not have to be copper.

Here's my story, the house I currently live in and own was built in 1978. The man who had it built had a "water witch" dowse the area for the well. I bought the house in 1988, and it in NC they normally have run the well dry to test the water levels and and so forth. They ran the water 24/7 for 3 days and the well would never run dry. It's like the well is a tapped into and under ground river. I replaced the pump, lines and foot valve and tank a couple years ago and I recorded the well depth and water level and they both matched what was record and stamped on to a metal plate on top of the wells lid. It's a 24" bored well which is cased with 24" round concrete tiles , bored 50ft. deep with a water level of 25ft. I got the same results in 2015 as it was recorded in 1978. Everybody else in the area their wells have run dry but ours is still the same as it always was. If it ever ran dry we could use the county's water system but we've had no need for it and the water has a nice delicious taste as well. Our frig. also filters the water coming in also. Seeing that every home in the area has had their wells run dry but ours was located via a "water witch". Dunno if it's a coincidence or what.

Ditto. I’ve dowsed with wire coat hangers, tree branches of numerous types, and even yucca blades with excellent results. Many years ago, my dad and I dowsed to locate water and sewer lines in need of repair on our family property..Onr time, by triangulation, we dowsed and located a good water well for a friend after a water contractor had drilled two dry wells.

However, everyone apparently can’t “Devine” like this. My dad and I could do it, but it wouldn’t work with my mom unless he or I gripped her wrists. Then it worked for her as we held her wrists.

There were times I tried to hold the tree branches tightly in order for them to not “work.” However, invariably, the tree bark would just twist off in my hands, the force was so powerful.

The dowsing process and results was really quite amazing.
