I have been asked by several people over the years about dowsing rods, if there is something special about them and how they are made, and if they actually work. So I thought I’d put together a quick article on them in hopes of answering some questions.
What are dowsing rods?
Dowsing rods, also known as Divining Rods or Spirit Rods, are two L-shaped pieces of metal that are used to find water or other objects underground. The rods are held in each hand, with the arms extended out in front of your body. The person holding the rods moves them back and forth until they cross, which indicates the location of the object.
Dowsing rods have been used for centuries to find water, but they can also be used to find other objects, such as lost keys or jewelry. Some people believe that dowsing rods are affected by paranormal activity, and they have been used in ghost hunting investigations.
What is the history of dowsing?
Dowsing is an ancient practice that has been used for centuries to find water, minerals, and other objects underground. In recent years, dowsing has become popular among paranormal investigators as a way to find hidden ghosts and spirits.
Dowsing rods are usually made of metal or wood, and they are held in the hands of the dowser. The dowser walks around the area where they believe the object is hidden, and the rods will move when they are close to it.
There is no scientific evidence that dowsing actually works, but many people believe that it does. Some say that dowsing is a form of divination, or that it works because of some kind of psychic ability. Others say that it is simply a matter of subconscious cues from the environment. Whatever the case may be, dowsing is a popular tool among paranormal investigators.
How do dowsing rods work?
Dowsing rods are said to work by detecting changes in the electromagnetic field (EMF). When an object or person is present, it is said to disrupt the EMF, which the dowsing rod then picks up on. Some people believe that dowsing rods are also sensitive to changes in the Earth’s magnetic field, which can be caused by paranormal activity.
There are a few different ways that dowsing rods can be used for paranormal investigations. One way is to simply hold the rods and walk around the area that you’re investigating. The rods will supposedly cross when they detect something unusual. Another way is to ask specific questions and see how the rods react. For example, you could ask if there is a spirit present and if so, where it is located.
It’s important to note that dowsing rod reactions can be affected by many factors, including strong emotions and outside influences such as wind or metal objects nearby. This means that false positives are possible and you should always take any readings with a grain of salt.
How to use dowsing rods for paranormal investigations?
Dowsing rods can be used as a tool in paranormal investigations. To use them, you will need two rods, made of metal or another conductive material.
Hold one rod in each hand, with your arms extended straight out in front of you. The rods should be about a foot apart from each other. Slowly walk around the area you are investigating. If a ghost or spirit is present, the rods will move towards each other and cross over.
1. Before beginning your investigation, it is important to cleanse your dowsing rods. This can be done by running them under cold water or smudging them with sage smoke.
2. When you are ready to start using your dowsing rods, hold them in front of you with the tips pointing down. Relax your hands and allow the rods to move however they will.
3. Pay attention to how the dowsing rods react when they are near potential sources of paranormal activity. They may cross or move in a particular way when near these sources.
4. Once you have identified a potential source of paranormal activity, you can use your dowsing rods to help investigate it further. For example, you can ask specific questions and see how the rods react in order to get yes or no answers.
How to interpret the results of using dowsing rods?
The following are some possible interpretations of the different results you may get:
– If the rods cross, this means that the answer is yes.
– If the rods move away from each other, this means that the answer is no.
– If the rods circle around each other, this means that there is a spirit present.
What are some things to keep in mind when using dowsing rods?
When using dowsing rods, it is important to keep a few things in mind. First, dowsing rods are not 100% accurate, so don’t expect them to be. Second, dowsing rods can be affected by outside influences such as wind or other people’s energy, so try to find a quiet place to use them. Finally, be sure to ask your questions clearly and concisely before using the rods.
How to care for dowsing rods?
If you don’t take care of your dowsing rods, they may not work properly or they may even break. Here are some tips on how to properly care for your dowsing rods:
1. Store your dowsing rods in a safe place when you’re not using them. This will protect them from being damaged or broken.
2. Clean your dowsing rods regularly with a soft cloth. This will remove any dirt or debris that could interfere with their performance.
3. Inspect your dowsing rods before each use to make sure they’re in good condition. If you notice any damage, replace the rod immediately so it doesn’t cause any problems during your investigation.
4. Handle your dowsing rods gently and with respect. Remember, these are tools that can help you communicate with the other side, so treat them accordingly
