... using dowsing rods to find underground water in the philippines ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist)

.

some people tell me that the way to find underground water for their hand pumps, jet pumps, and shallow or deep wells is through dowsing. an early mention of dowsing is actually biblical. in numbers 20:11, moses raises his arm and strikes a rock twice with his staff, after which abundant water flows out of the rock. everyone then rejoices that they now have a stable source of water for the community.
.

there is no scientific reason why dowsing should work but it nevertheless carries a greater-than-chance success rate. in fact, the german government funded a scientific study on dowsing in the hope of finding reliable water sources in the desert regions of 3rd world countries. in this study, the dowsers didn't hit water all the time but the success rate was impressive. in sri lanka alone, the dowsers who participated in the research drilled 691 holes and had a success rate of 96%. these dowsers were able to predict the depth and quantity of the water source.
.
the method of dowsing generally uses L-shaped rods made of metal wire or a Y-shaped forked branch. the rods or branch is lightly but firmly held and you just need to walk around the grounds with a clear intention of finding underground water. once you feel the forked branch getting "magnetically" pulled down towards the ground, that's where underground water is supposed to be flowing. when using the L-shaped rods, they may criss-cross or open up, depending on what the dowser considers to be a "yes" or "no" answer.
.

joanne, justin, and clint took a break from their hectic and mind-racking medical studies at u.p. pgh just to do some dowsing experiments with me. to make the dowsing rods, we cut up some metal hangers and shaped them into the L-shaped rods.
.

my attempt to dowse for water actually led me to the drainage hole of a foul-smelling canal. i don't know whether that counts as a successful attempt but one thing for certain is that the rotten revolting repulsive smell of the canal still lingers in my nasal passages.

.

in the picture below, you'll see that clint's dowsing rods led him to justin who, as a human being is composed of 80% water. joanne and justin however were largely unsuccessful in their attempt to find water, reasoning out that it had just rained and that the grounds were all wet.
.

next time we go dowsing, we're going to dress up just like moses. maybe that'll do the trick!
