This exercise will instruct you on
how to create your own divining rod and practice the skill of dowsing.
You will need two wire coat hanger
to serve as your "divining rod."
- Holding the first coat hangar upside-down,
make a cut 3/4 down the part on the left that is slanted diagonally
to the bottom-right.
- Next make a cut on the top straight
section, near the end of the right-hand side. Discard the section
of the hangar with the hook on it.
- You should now be left with a piece
in the shape of a "V" with one side about twice as long
as the other. Bend the short end of the hangar so that it is perpendicular
to the longer end.
- Repeat steps two-four with the other
hangar. These are your divining rods.
To begin dowsing, grasp the short ends
of the rod lightly, keeping the longer ends parallel to the ground.
As you walk over a search area, mentally repeat a question regarding
what you're looking for. For example, if you're searching for water,
keep asking "Is there water here?" "The rods will
indicate a positive response by swinging away from each other to
either side or by swinging together and intersecting."
