Water Dowsing Techniques

Water dowsing is sometimes called water witching or water divining. Dowsing for water is one of the oldest uses of this simple, natural skill. Often, it is the first, or only, exposure to dowsing which most people have. Water dowsers have been quietly going about their business for hundreds of years. Naturally, those who see them in action are likely to ask questions. The most usual one is to ask how does water dowsing work? The straight answer is that nobody knows for sure. There are plenty of ideas, but no commonly accepted explanation. Some people, despite seeing the results, then ask does dowsing for water really work? Which, given the success rate of good water dowsers, seems a little redundant.

However, other people, upon seeing water witching happening, will go on to ask how they can do it themselves. They're not necessarily concerned in understanding how it works; they want to learn the technique themselves. A technique is a way of carrying out a particular task. So what they're asking is a simple explanation of how to dowse for water.

First, you must realize that simple does not mean easy. The two are not the same. In the case of water dowsing, it will not take long to outline the techniques. But performing them well is not easy. Please remember that in what follows.

Dowsing, all dowsing, is essentially the same. Whether you are dowsing for gold, for water, for your lost car keys or for the best vacation to take, it is always the same few things involved. First, you have to have a specific goal in mind. In the case of water dowsing, it would be about finding water. Then, you have to have a specific question in mind. Again, that would be about the right type of water (drinkable or just for irrigation) and whereabouts to find it. After that, you then have to be in the right state of mind to allow the answer to come through to you. It's this last part you see when someone is dowsing a water well. They are in the right state of mind to locate the drilling place.

Once you've found the place, then there is more dowsing, repeating the same three steps (goal, question, receptive state) for the depth and the flow rate.

Because dowsing is a skill, then the more you practice it, the better you are at it. If you can't find a water dowser to learn from, then you can practice finding the water pipe which feeds your house, dowsing the depth, and seeing if there are any leaks. Dig and confirm your answers if you can. Also, be sure to watch the other videos on our channel about dowsing tools and techniques.

      I’m not sure what you’re saying or asking, but if you want to go ahead and check for water, then go ahead and do it and let us know of the results. I’m assuming that when you say ‘water detector’ you are speaking about a dowsing tool? If not, I’m uncertain what the reference is.

    I would like to divert surface water away from an area next to my home .My well is below this area, and I certainty Do not want to effect that. We live on a the side of a mt. and have alot of springs . I use a pendulum an also rods. I have heard of hammering rods in the ground . I am just looking for some additional advise. Thank you.

      Using rods in the ground was only for diverting underground water, as far as I can recall, not surface water. Diverting surface water would, presumably, require a more direct and physical approach; channeling, damming and so on. I’m not sure how dowsing would be of benefit to you in this circumstance, unless I have completely misunderstood the situation.

    Is a person who has psychic abilities more inclined to perfect dowsing? Are you able to perform long distance dowsing? Is someone with Native American ancestry more endowed with the ability to dowse? A family friend who was part Native American did dowsing for me but unfortunately has passed. He was convinced his abilities were due to his heritage.

      Dowsing is a natural human ability so having psychic abilities shouldn’t really come into it. It depends greatly on the person and what they are dowsing about. Not every dowser is brilliant at every type of dowsing.
      Dowsing doesn’t rely upon how close you are to the target. Accuracy depends upon practice and being in the dowsing state. We have dowsed for gold deposits in Alaska but we live way south of there.
      Being Native American doesn’t automatically mean you’re able to dowse well. As I said, dowsing is something which is entirely normal and human. All it requires is practice and being in the dowsing state and checking your answers. One thing is important though and that is what you believe. If you believe that you will need to stand facing the east (for example) before you can dowse accurately, then guess what? You’ll only be to dowse accurately when you do that. It’s very much a mental thing, getting your mind right. The external stuff is less important. You can read about the importance of the dowsing state here.

    Thanks Nigel, I certainly believe in dowsing as I’ve witnessed it with the family friend I referenced in my initial post. I would be dowsing for water on a piece of land my son and fiance are under contract to buy. The family friend gave me a dowsing acorn on a chain, is that as effective as a dowsing stick?

      If you’re in the field dowsing for water and moving about then a rod would be easier, although it’s not impossible to dowse with a pendulum but it tends to move a lot as you walk. If you’re dowsing over a map or plan then a pendulum is probably easier. It’s a matter of personal preference as well as experience. Both tools work equally well. I have come across water dowsers who used nothing but the sensations in their hands or bodies to identify a water source. Also, a jesuit priest who dowsed hundreds of wells in India used a pendulum. Find out what works best for you!
