How to Dowse for Water


Dowsing for water has been done since ancient times. No one knows why it works, although there are numerous theories. Some people think an electrical circuit is created between the water and the dowsing rods. Some think it's our subconscious mind. Anyone can be a dowser, although to be good it takes practice. Follow these steps to dowse for water.

  • Get a wire coat hanger to make some metal dowsing rods. Uncoil it and bend it until it's straight. Cut the coat hanger into two 20-inch long pieces. You will probably have some left over and can throw it away.

  • Bend four inches at the end of each piece at a 90-degree angle. These ends will be your handles. Bend the other ends down about one inch in the same direction as the handles. It will protect you or someone else from getting poked in the eye.

  • Go to an area you wish to dowse for water. Form a mental image of water in your mind and concentrate on it while you dowse.

  • Hold the metal rods by the handles. Grip them in the center of your palms and hold the rods so that they're pointing straight ahead of you and parallel.

  • Walk slowly holding the image of water in your mind and keeping the rods steady. When you reach an area that has water below, the rods should cross. Remember the location where the rods crossed or mark it. Try dowsing a couple more times to see if you get the same results.

Tips & Warnings

  • It is possible to dowse for any object using this method. Form an image in your mind of what you wish to dowse for and hold that image while you're dowsing.
  • Try researching dowsing online. Note that different tools and methods can be used to dowse for water.
