How to Dowse for Water ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

With an academic background in physics and a range of expertise in hydrology, geology and mechanical engineering, Guy Hudson talks about his work as a professional water dowser. He discusses the historical and current need for water divining and the potential technical difficulties when drilling for water. He also shows us some introductory training methods out in the field.

Lambda25 it works

If you actually were an engineer you´d know better than to trust anecdotal evidence.
If you are convinced by a sample size of one, please burn your degree.

Then look up the ideomotor effect, try to understand why we use extremely sensitive MRI machines (hint, "magnetic body" is BS as an explanation) and give the problem a hard think.

Unreflected and gullible people like you are exactly why myths like these stay around and quacks, tricksters and other parasites earn millions.

sorry, not worthy of Woodlands TV. keep this crap off. it's been proven to be absolute nonsense

I can't believe how many dowsing clips there are and how many gullible people believe this stuff. And incredibly there's even a society of dowsers. Where these ninnys gather and discuss how they found water. Yeah they had a hunch roughly where it would be and made the rods move by the ideomotor effect. hah silly people.

FYI – The ADE 651 is a fake bomb detector[1] that was produced by the British company Advanced Tactical Security & Communications Ltd (ATSC), which claimed that the device could effectively and accurately, from long range, detect the presence and location of various types of explosives, drugs, ivory, and other substances. The device has been sold to 20 countries in the Middle East and Asia, including Iraq and Afghanistan, for as much as US$60,000 each. The Iraqi government is said to have spent £52 million on the devices.[2]
Investigations by the BBC and other organisations found that the device is little more than a "glorified dowsing rod" with no ability to perform its claimed functions. In January 2010, export of the device was banned by the British government and the managing director of ATSC was arrested on suspicion of fraud,[3] and in June 2010, several other companies were raided by British police.[4] ATSC was dissolved on 5 March 2013.[5] On 23 April 2013, the founder of ATSC, James "Jim" McCormick, was convicted of three counts of fraud,[6] and was subsequently sentenced to ten years' imprisonment.[7]

Well, there's no science behind dowsing, like there wasn't ever in all walks of life, in the old days before the Greek culture practiced science. Still, dowsing worked and helped many people to find water. I've got a question for you. Could you show me evidence of how your mind works, apart from creating a fixed view in denial of Ley Lines while the evidence of their existence is found? Ley Lines are energy channels connecting, forming nodes where churches and sacred sites, with stone circles or ceremonial burial grounds, are present. They're closely resembling the energy lines in our bodies, called meridians. These are now scientifically proven to be real: https://upliftconnect.com/science-proves-meridians-exist/

@Ae Norist Anecdotal evidence….. your brain dowsing seems off key. The man you accuse of being unreflected just shared a clip and clear piece of evidence based on experience with dowsing. It must be almost a matter of survival, the way you dismiss dowsing as genuine and effective. It works.

There is of course a good deal of intuitive connection that's involved with this skill, and the more success there is the more developed this connection becomes. Skeptics who start out with a close heart and mind are not open to their own intuition and therefore have great difficulty tapping in. My work has been in dowsing fluid issues associated to health problems and have experienced a great deal of success with helping others where physicians had had failed to resolve the problem. As for finding water, I knew Amish farmers who have enlisted the help of Amish dowsers to find underground water sources for digging their wells. Dowsing is definitely a skill worth developing that has many applications. Intuition can tap into anything anywhere. But wherever the greater focus of interest tends be, that also will be where one's skill level develops the most.

does he have to hold them loose or firm?

@M.Szo: Did you learn it by yourself or have you been tought? Do you also use such rods as the man in the video does? (2) There are many different types on the marke; I would like to learn it also because of health issues, want to learn doing it on my own, but at the moment, not having done it so far, I am not sure, if I will be able to learn it to have sufficient results, I can´t prove it, because I don´t know anybody knowing about dowsing, difficult. How was your individual way learning dowsing and being now good at it?
