What is dowsing?

DOWSING is the art of locating energies or energetic changes which are not accessible through our usual senses. A dowser often uses a tool or instrument to help him indicate subtle changes in space, on a property or with people.

Who can do it?

Anyone can learn how to dowse and with some practice get reliable results. Early history mentions dowsing in ancient Chinese writings, as well as in the Bible. Today oil companies, the army and many water drilling businesses rely on dowsers for locating the location and depth of oil, underground structures and water. In Europe dowsing is widely used in alternative medical practices as a way to determine personal responses to herbs, homeopathics and supplements including finding the right dosage.
