What else might be devined by dowsing?
Do you believe dowsing can find water?
A few years back, I watched as a friend contracted for a water well to be drilled on his newly purchased parcel of mountain ridgetop!
Other landholders on this ridgetop had not faired well in their drilling of water wells, and consequently most of the neighborhood’s wells produced mere trickles of water.
The well-driller, a grizzled veteran of decades of drillings, said, “I won’t drill on this property without a dowser!” And so the recommended dowser was contracted to “witch a well.”
The dowser, an equally grizzled veteran of decades of dowsing, cruised the property behind a well-used forked willow branch, occasionally stopping here and there at the dipping of the forked willow. Finally, he stopped dead in his tracks and said, “Right here! You will find 30 gallons per minute at 365 feet.”
And that is, within a foot or two, where the well-driller found 30 gallons per minute on the bone dry ridgetop.
Having seen this dowsing, and the proving up of its call, one simply must ask…
What other answers might be divined by dowsing?
