Welcome to Mid-Atlantic Geomancy (MAG)


Geomancy explores the realm where human consciousness meets and dialogues with the Spirit of the Earth. It empowers the harmonious interaction between person and place, and can enhance spiritual growth.

Powerpoints in Time

While Geomancy honours the spirit of place, it also honours its intersection with the Spirit of Time. We honour all spiritual paths with heart, and so, we would begin by recognising that different paths see different days as special. On these islands, the builders of Stonehenge honoured the Summer Solstice, at Newgrange, they honoured the Winter Solstice, but all spiritual paths and world religions hold different days as special.
You are looking at a completely revised Mid-Atlantic Geomancy.  We have moved to a new Internet Service Provider, rewritten the <.html>, and have added new material - especially a section on Dyslexia and Dowsing and its connection with Geomancy.  Also, you can now read this entire website formatted for both cell phones and iPads, so it will be much easier to read on these devices.  So, I invite you to sit back and realax and enjoy our latest issue of our MAG E-zine.

MAG E-Zine #68:  How Old is Dowsing?

 

What is the oldest reference in history to the use of dowsing?  We know that it was happening in the middle of the last millennium with the witchcraft persecutions, but is there any evidence of it being mentioned before then?  The earliest references I can find are in the Old Testament of the Bible.  I remember when I was in college, and we were dissecting the Psalms of David:

23rd  Psalm Verses 1 & 4
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want…

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
    thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.


My teacher, Rev. Scott, argued the words rod and staff meant the same thing.  I believed that one for forty years.  But now, I no longer buy that interpretation … and my belief is based on earlier sections of the Bible.  First of all, a staff is a walking stick - like the one Joseph of Arimathaea had in his hand when he rested on Wearyall Hill looking at Glastonbury.  It was magical in the sense that this Jerusalem Thorn staff took root, but it still had been used as his walking staff.  On the other hand a rod, as in “dowsing rod,” is a fully magical tool in the sense that it can be used for divination (communicating with the Divine) and for, among other things, looking for water.
