The main uses of dowsing from antiquity is for water. In
many paintings and statues, the King or the Priest would
be holding a dowsing tool of some kind. Nowadays we use
dowsing to find water, oil, treasure, locate missing children,
etc. Water dowsers use the pendulum and map dowse the property
looking for a water vein and then go into the field and
verify their map dowsing which saves a lot of time walking
over the big property.
There is several methods used in map dowsing.
1. Dowse from each corner of the map and direct the pendulum
to swing towards the goal and using a ruler draw a line
in the direction that the pendulum is swinging. Do this
from each corner of the map and note where the four lines
intersect. Sometimes the box showing where they all intersect
will be small and a ruler can be used under the box and
ask the pendulum if the goal is still above the box and
gradually move the ruler up until you get a NO from you
pendulum. Then mover the ruler from the side and do the
same thing until you get another NO. This way you have really
localized the spot that you are looking for. If you are
looking for a missing child you first ask if the child is
still alive. If you get a YES answer then you map dowse
using the proceedure above.
2. Another way to map dowse for something, ask the question
is it located east of the Miississippi river, if not, it
is located in the northern half of the states west of the
Mississippi, if not, go through the state located in the
southern portion of the WEST until you get a right state.
Then use the 4 corners technique or get a state map and
use a ruler at the bottom of the map and slowly move the
ruler up asking all the time whether it is north of the
ruler. When you get a NO, you back off a little and draw
a line across the state. The going from one of the sides
of the map move the ruler towards the other side asking
question whether is it to the left of the ruler while your
are moving the ruler. When you get a NO answer, back off
a little and draw a line intersecting the previous line.
Then put your pencil on the point of intersection and ask
the question if this is the exact location of your goal.
If not, move the pencil around until you get a YES answer.
