Who knows about dowsing? Is it reliable at all? Do answers change if
you ask the same question repeatedly? Does it work if you're
frontloaded by knowing the question?
I played around with it a little last weekend after reading that it
could be used to ask questions of the subconscious and found it pretty
entertaining. The psychologist wrote it's useful for learning about
what your subconscious thinks, but not for psychic enterprises such as
It would seem that people who do map dowsing would necessarily be
frontloaded, but that to use it as an ARV substitute, you'd want to be
blind to the question - any comments?
The part I found most interesting was that the pendulum did in fact
seem to move without conscious control. Also, it did move
consistently and accurately yes or no when control questions were
asked. While it seems to be controlled entirely by the subconscious,
I presume that conscious thought would influence it. If there's
anything to dowsing, it certainly would be quicker and easier to do a
much higher number of trials than with ARV.

Above URL is a reference to "A letter to Robin" by
Walt Woods. The "RV manual" of dowsing. And it's free.
Many of the military RVers use dowsing as a supplement
to RV, especially for locating places. I was at a
class where Lyn taught a method he prefered for
Associated Dowsing. But dowsing has it's own set of
problems. I think when done correctly it tunes into
the same source of psi info as RV or ARV.
When leanring dowsing Rob Abbott (an excellent dowser? )
reccommends you do 100's of practice repetitions.. and
always tune your devise ( pendulum, rod, or hands? )
with some practice questions before going. "Is my Name
X" "is the date X". Don't start on serious
applications until you get the correct answer to your

I believe that pendulum dowsing works, and works well. Since I am not a classic
RVer, it doesn't matter one whit to me whether I'm front loaded or not, or what
methods I use. What works, works. :-? )
Try this URL:
It's one of the best introductions to dowsing out there. Dowsing is not limited
to simple yes and no questions as many believe. The pendulum can be quite
versatile. It can also be surprising at times.
