Hi Ohi! Yeah, I mentioned it. But after astounding odds, it never worked again...pendulums that is. I believe using metal rods in the field simply works too often to discount it as myth. I also find no physical reason for believing that "remote" dowsing works with maps or pictures. Coriolis effect spins things...but only one way, depending on which hemisphere you are in -science. Thin metal rods or wires can be affected by both Coriolis effect, electromagnetic fields and a host of various natural energy waves and rays ...if they are given the freedom to do so. Again, science. But this is old news. I just wonder if anyone has heard or has updated scientific evidence that explains why field dowsing works...most of the time. Finding anything five feet down in a undisturbed 1/4 acre lot is not a fluke. The laws of probability rule out chance on this one. And then to repeat this again and again in different locations...science is surely to blame...not little voices or green men. See, I have plenty of doubts about most of it. With metal rods in the field, I find pipes. Dead on most of the time, regardless of depth. But with steep hills I am always off...but not by much. I already mentioned the mirror image thingy that happened. I am open minded...but if this is a "gift" I'd just as soon leave it alone...if ya get my meaning. plumber
Its easy to see a scientific explanation for the metal rods working , Ive done it myself looking for water and it works. But this is finding large amounts of water or large metalic objects by magnetic fields. Finding a coin with a pendulum cant work because the coin isnt big enough , and dowsing a map makes no sense because it is just a piece of paper. I do believe there are other things at work in some cases that are not scientific but fall more into a category that I will just call "supernatural" ...like a ouigi board ( spelling ?? ). This is an area many of us know to avoid.
