Hi BERT-BERT when we arrived at the site to detecton it was rather windy then I noticed wind turbines in the next field as much as I tried to get the rods to respond the wind was making them move so I gave it up so I will try again hopsfully next week.
Sorry about the wind turbines,yes,with the rods wind will mess you up,that why I use a "WAND or as some call it a "bobber",the wind doesn't effect them and they are my choice for dowsing,you should try a wand,if you get proficient with the wand you will retire the rods:smile: I hope you get good results the next time you try that spot,Have a good night-----bert
Hi BERT-BERT today Ihave been practising using one l rod,to get a yes I have a silver coin in my left hand and ask the question "is the coin in my left hand a silver one" and the rod moves left,I have 6 chickens one is called LIMPY and the rod picked it out no problemI asked where is PADDYWHACK my dog and sure enough the rod moved pointing towards Paddywhack,"which house do I live in" again the rod pointing to my house,then outside a friends garden is a patch of clover I asked the question 2is there any 4 leaf clovers in this patch" I got a response and I asked the rod to point to where the 4 leaf clover is,the rod moved and I bent down and was amased I was actually looking at a 4 LEAF CLOVER ,now trying to find them in a large patch is like looking for the needle in the haystackIwas totally gob smackedI asked the question "is this 4 leaf clover a lucky omen" well time will tell,Ill let you know if it is,good luck from Paddywhack.
Most of us don't think about how the early pioneers located their well on the dry praries. The simple fact is they dowsed for the location then built their home near the well. It was such a common practice to dowse the location that they didn't bother to record how they did it in their diaries, they just said located well or dug well today or something similar. Kind of like when they went to town, did they walk, ride a horse, or take the wagon...it was such a common everyday thing why bother describing it in detail.
Welcome,we are glad to have you aboard the dowsing forum,yes you are right about the old time settlers on the western prairies,they just took it for granted and never thought about it,My sister in law who lives in Saskatchewan province in Canada told me that the people up there would never think about having a well drilled without first having a water dowser find the spot to drill or dig the well,that says a lot about dowsing---Have a good night---BERT
So true Bert, just like asking for water when dowsing, you want to be specific. Don't just ask for water or you could end up with alkali or soda water thats useless to you. Ask for good potable water at a depth of no more than xxx foot depth with a minimal recovery rate of 5 gallons per minute in the worst possible drought. THEN you will get something useful to you.
Welcome to the dowsing forum Jim,yes all my dowsing instruments are home made,at the present time I am not selling any but who knows what the future holds:smile: there will be more lessons coming soon so keep in touch and if you have any questions just ask.----BERT
Hello Fifty two pennies:
Good morning,no you don't have to put any balls on the end of the rods when using sleeves on the handles,might be a safety measure to keep from sticking the end of rod into someones eye:smile:
Someone added to your message and said they would make you a pair free o fcharge only pay postage, they didn't give their name.
you can use any metal for the rods,lots of dowsers prefer brass.
Have a good day-----BERT
I was reading alot of threads this afternoon into the night about Dowsing and of course your 3 segments, and find it fascinating, so if you dont mind I'd like to tag along...I decided to make two L rods out of coat hangers with wooden handles and I'm amazed how they moved about without any thought...I know NOTHING about Dowsing but will learn from your lessons...For starters I just sat in a chair and held them the way you described, and was amazed how they moved on their own...I was pressed for time today so really didn't get a chance to apply the procedures the way you explained, but I will...Keep the lessons coming, they're GREAT...
Welcome to the Dowsing lessons,and yes you are doing fine making your own rods,I make all of mine and as you progress you will be amazed at what you can do with dowsing,we will have map dowsing lessons soon and also will have some video so all can see the different dowsing tools in action,so thanks and if you have any questions post them and Pappy or I will get back to you as soon as we can,have a good day----BERT
Hi bert-bert sunday was again to windy to use my L rod looks like Im going to saw my old fishing rod up to make a bobber,it wasnt all doom and gloom I found a Edward 1st hammered silver penny in good condition another 3 hammered coins turned up as the day progressed,the silver coin that I found dates back to 1272,looking forward to the next lesson.goodluck from PADDYWHACK.
Hello again,man I hope you will get a day with no wind so you can use your L Rods,but like I say after learning to use the rods,Please learn to use the Wand "bobber" you will have no problem with the wind then.
"WOW" that silver coin you found that dates back to 1272 sure is a great find and may be worth a lot---keep me informed on your progress and keep reading the dowsing forum,there are great lessons coming up---Bert
I have just really started using L-Rods to find objects. I was curious last week, while my wife was shopping, whether or not my L-rods would find a 35 mm film container. I got a container out of my jeep and set it in a tree and walked about a 1/4 to 1/2 block away from the container and started concentrating. The rods started responding immediately. The right rod would always keep me on track with the left rod remaining straight. When I got into the general area of the container, straight in line with the tree, the rods lined up with each other. If I moved either left or right of the tree the right rod would move me in-line with the tree and the rods would go back to their side by side alinement. The rods within about a foot of the tree crossed. If this is an indication of how well they work I am going to try to find a geocache that someone has hidden without me knowing exactly where the cache is located.
I have yet to purchase any of the rods that I have. Lately I have been cutting my rods from display cartons that have a stand used to display rain coats. All I have to do is cut the stand in two pieces and cut the wire rods to size and dress up the ends. I work in a local hardware store and should have an endless supply as long as we still get the product.
Anyone wanting rods should check out their local hardware store and see if they have the same type of display.
Welcome,glad to have you aboard,it sounds like you are a natural for dowsing and you will have no problem using the other dowsing tools(Pendulum and wand) and yes making your own tools is great,I make all of my dowsing tools,the thing about making your own tools you can experiment and make adjustments and fine tune them to your satisfaction.keep up the god work and check out the dowsing lessons when you can,keep us posted on your progress-----BERT-BERT
Hello Bert Bert
I have been following this post of yours with a great curiosity. Just last week I was at a friends shop where I live , he has a spot at the local flea market where he sells metal detectors , rocks , coins, treasure magazines and gold prospecting supplies. I noticed a pair of L rods on the wall and asked about them. He then gave me a full demonstration. I had heard of dowsing but never got into it. He laid a book of silver coins on the floor and said to himself or ??? to the blue . "guide me to the silver" . He gave the rods a quick twirl as he said to "transfer the energy to the rods, then stopped them and he said I concentrate heavily on what it is I want. The rods straightened out to a 90 degree angle to his body and he walked forward. I was watching the rods and as he got closer to the rods they started to bend inwards to his hands and as he got over the book of coins on the floor the rods went parrallel to each other in front of his chest. SPOOKY to say the least. But what a lesson. I havent got the nerve yet to try it but got the material. I am going to give it a try now after reading your lessons.
Hi well I have done some dowsing in the passed and I use them every now and then, but can all ways learn more been reading your lessons they are great, I took two pens apart and put my rods inside so that it will spin and have alot of freedom to move, I have been useing one rod to get me going pointing in which way i go and when i get close to my target it will just send me in a circle, and this is were i get the 2nd rod out to pinpoint my target when they cross. but have no idea how to tell how deep anythink is.
Just got in here, didn't know your lessons were happening..
So far.. Seemed to have very good results with the pendulum. Had a little problem with NO at first but found asking with a little more force helped that.
Have used L rods in the past to find water pipes. My problem has been that's all I can find. Water pipes, septic systems, leach lines, even found some buried electrical lines but my talent seems to end there.
Need to find a way to broaden my horizons a bit..
Thanks for the lessons, looking forward to them. Bob
Try making some new rods and when making them keep thinking about what you will find with them and once they are ready rub a coin on them that you would like to find, after that go outside rub the cion on your rods face your house and toss it behined you with out knowing were it lands, i find this to be great practice with any coin, ok now hold one or both rods out keep thinking about that cion and go and find it.
it works every time for me and my grass is 4" high good luck hope this will help you.
