Looking for water? Try a bit of willow or some bent Coat Hangers.
With the increase in the use of plastic water bottles readily available and the fact we have plumbed taps the need to go out and find water had recede a bit. There was a time though when it was desperate for us to find water as we led a nomadic life wandering our green and pleasant land. Settlements depended on water and it was vital that one should be found. If there were no handy rivers around, then it was time to look for a well and or underground stream. This is where the skill of water dowsing came about, and it is quite real. Its very simple all you need to do is get a y shaped peace of willow or to bits of bent metal a coat hanger will do, obliviously our ancient ancestors had to use the willow. Its very simple all you need to do is hold the wood metal out in front of you and just walk slow across a field or a wood. When the metal comes together, or you feel the willow rise up then bingo you’ve found water. But I imagine that you like a bit more detail than that as to why it does that.
First of all, let’s remember that over half of our body is made up of water. The power of dowsing is you tapping into that hidden sense of water. If you get it right your able to detect water anywhere even the water is in is a nice set of column radiators for example. How it works is this and a lot of it does come down to you.
First of all, you need to be calm. Breathe in deeply and absorb the surroundings. Listen to the sounds of nature around you. Once you are calm and rested you then need to visualise water. The best thing to use is a place where you have experienced water like a nice bath, swimming in pool or lake or maybe a waterfall. Keep this image fixed firmly in your mind as it will be what you need to connect to the water. Then holding the rods, you walk across the field or forest thinking about the water image and keeping it in your mind. If there is water in the ground, you will start to feel a tingling sensation that comes up through the ground and into your legs. This sensation will flow through you into you arms and hands. Slowly the rods will begin to diverge together and that is where you need to start digging to see if you’ve found a well.
