Dispelling Myths and Understanding Nature Through Dowsing

Through careful dowsing research, a friend and I feel we have made new discoveries about the unseen world we live in that should have important implications to dowsers. It seems that most dowsers consider auric fields to be concentric circular bands or spheres of energy around people, animals, trees, etc. Some dowsers consider these circular fields around people to be finite in number, usually seven, and ascribe names to them, such as the health aura, the astral aura, the mental aura, etc. This typically comes from matching our dowsing experience with metaphysical philosophy. Other dowsers consider these energy field bands to be infinite in number, extending into the universe. Until recently, I also thought them to be circular or possibly spherical. Our dowsing research has proved otherwise.

Envision Human Auric Fields

Dowsing is important because it gives us tools to explore the unseen world we live in, otherwise visible only to those with psychic vision. It gives us opportunities to understand, through personal experience, concepts that we have always had to accept on faith or through intellectual understanding, such as the interconnectedness of everyone and everything on earth, to be discussed later in this article.

I have been particularly interested, through the years, in dowsing human energy fields and observing how they are affected by positive and negative thinking, by various foods, etc. Lately, Dr. Jim Wallace and I have been dowsing water domes, energy leys, and power spots, observing their effects on human auric fields. Let's cover a few basics before I explain our research.

Dowsers consider water domes to be sources of primary water that rise vertically from deep below the earth's surface. The rising water eventually hits an impenetrable layer of rock and spreads out into several streams, or water veins, along cracks or fissures in the earth, all extending out from the dome. These water veins are typically what we tap into when we drill water wells. Water domes can be located through dowsing and dowsers have observed that when human beings stand over a dome, their auric fields contract or weaken.

Energy leys are considered to be lines or beams of energy that enter the earth from the cosmos, turn at a right angles at a certain depth under the surface of the earth (some say 165 feet), course the earth for a certain distance in straight lines, then turn again at right angles to exit the earth and return to the cosmos. Many ancient sacred sites, such as pyramids and cathedrals, have been built in alignment with ley lines. Some dowsers maintain that energy leys carry yang, or positively charged, energy. I find that energy leys carry yin and yang (positive and negative) energy. In my experience, where there's a yin, there's a yang.

If a water dome is intersected by two or more energy leys, the combined energy creates what is considered to be a power spot. Here again, we have the presence of yin and yang, or positive andnegative, charges. When human beings stand over a power spot, their dowsable energy fields can be observed to expand or strengthen.

I have realized for years that when an experienced dowser approaches a human being from any direction, he or she will get several dowsing reactions, what I consider to be auric bands, or energy bands in the auric field. I have long wanted to answer the question, "Do these auric bands really create circles or, more accurately, spheres, as they seem to?" by following the auric bands around a person, marking and mapping their dowsed locations on the ground. But human energy fields are so volatile that this is difficult; the fields contract and expand simultaneously with varying thoughts of the person being dowsed.

In our dowsing explorations, Jim and I realized that water domes and power spots have energy fields surrounding them much like human auric fields. As we approached them with various dowsing tools, we got reactions like those we got when we approached people. Since the auric fields around domes and power spots are much more stable than human energy fields, they can be dowsed and marked more easily.

Jim and I decided to follow the energy bands around a dome with intersecting energy leys (a power spot) and mark their locations on the ground with chalk powder. We came to the surprising conclusion that the bands are not circular at all; they are part of a spiral, apparently expanding into infinity, which, of course, can only be theorized. No matter how far away we stood as we approached the power spot, we got dowsing reactions, just as when approaching people.

As we continued our research, we located a water dome without intersecting leys and once again marked the dowsed locations of the energy bands radiating from the center. When we completed this, we found that the spiral was clockwise in its spin orientation as it radiated out from the center. We went back to the power spot and noted that the spiral radiated out in a counter-clockwise spin. We thought this significant.

Before we mapped these energy bands, we had noted that the energy fields surrounding humans, domes, and power spots have alternating positive and negative charges, yin and yang. As we approached our target with L-rods, for instance, the rods would alternate between opening and Crossing. Jim's Y-rod would draw down and then rise up. We found we had to open ourselves to positive and negative, yin and yang, energy to experience this. Otherwise you will only pick up one or the other.

Because of this experience, we assumed that once we had marked the spirals on the ground, each band of the spiral would have alternating positive and negative charges. But when we dowsed the spiral marked on the ground, we got another surprise; every band had a positive, or yang, charge, demonstrated by the outward movements of our L-rods. (This may be inward for you, depending on how you have programmed your reactions.) The negative, or yin, charges, indicated for us by a Crossing of our L-rods, were in-between each band of the marked spiral.

After marking the negatively charged bands, we came to the conclusion that there are actually two spirals. The positive spiral seems to radiate outward from the center and the negatively charged spiral seems to draw inward, simultaneously, toward the center. We have since found that plants, trees, humans, and animals also have spiraling energy fields around them and we assume that everything does.

Our findings interested me for several reasons. Not only was it a new way of understanding the nature of auric fields for me, it also fit perfectly into the teachings of Walter Russell, a modern-day Leonardo, whom I have been studying for many years. Many dowsers study Russell's teachings about science and the nature of the universe. Russell said that all natural energy forms spirals, with one spiral radiating outward, centrifugally, and an interrelated spiral generating inward, centripedally, creating a vortex of energy that looks much like a tornado. I highly recommend the book, In the Wave Lies the Secret of Creation, which is a compilation of Russell's scientific paintings and charts, with commentaries and an outline of the Russell cosmogony, compiled by Tim Binder. If you are connected to the Internet, you can learn more about Walter Russell here, or you can contact me for more information.

Physicists now acknowledge that everything from DNA to plant and animal cells to hurricanes and tornadoes to galaxies form spirals or vortices. You may think, at this point, that Jim and I merely obtained our results through suggestion, but Jim had not studied Russell and we both fully expected to find circles when we completed our initial dowsing experiments. We were looking for circular auric bands.

To review our findings: Auric or energy fields around humans, animals, plants, trees, domes, power spots, and probably all of existence form interrelated spirals or vortices that radiate out and draw in simultaneously and infinitely. That is important: they radiate out and draw in simultaneously and infinitely. From our research so far, we find that human energy fields seem to radiate outward in a clockwise spiral, whether we are dowsing males or females. (We arbitrarily choose the outward radiating or positive spiral for spin orientation.) We also find that energy fields from trees and plants seem to radiate in a clockwise direction. As stated above, we find that water dome energy fields without intersecting leys spin in a clockwise direction while the energy fields of power spots spin in a counter-clockwise direction.

What does all this mean? What conclusions do we draw? Though our research is certainly not conclusive, we theorize that when a human being, with a clockwise spinning auric field, stands over a water dome, which also spins in a clockwise orientation, the spiraling energy field from the water dome causes our spiraling energy field to contract. When we stand on a dome with intersecting leys, the outward radiating energy from the power spot possibly feeds our inward drawing spiral (and/or vice-versa), thereby expanding and strengthening our auric fields. It may be that some people have auric fields that radiate out in a counter-clockwise spin. If this is the case, then possibly the balanced yin and yang energy, or positive and negative charges, carried in the energy field of a power spot feed both positive and negative charges in people. But the implications are much greater if we just think about it.

Haven't we always heard about the interconnectedness of all people and all things in the universe? If everything in the universe has these energy spirals simultaneously and infinitely radiating outward and drawing inward, doesn't that help explain this interconnectedness? Doesn't it explain how our thoughts and deeds can affect the energy of everyone else? Doesn't it help us to explain how what is happening to others in Bosnia, or Rwanda, or in any remote corner of the world affects the energy fields of each and every one of us in the world? Doesn't it give a possible explanation of how our prayers go out into the universe, how they affect others, and how they are answered (or how the answers are returned) by our Creator? Haven't we always heard that "thoughts are things" and "what we think and do will come back to us in kind," and that "what goes around comes around?" Our thoughts are carried into infinity by the outward spiraling energy band and the effect of those thoughts are simultaneously returned to us through the inward drawing spiral.

We have much more to learn in this area and welcome any interested dowsers to do their own research or join in research with us. We have many questions that we'd like to answer. Do all human energy fields spin in the same direction? Does the spin direction change in the Southern Hemisphere as water does when is spirals down a drain? The more questions we ask, the more questions we get.

I am not proposing that we are wrong when we think of humans as having seven auras. I am saying that what dowsers get reactions to are the bands in the auric field rather than the auras themselves. The various auras, visible to some clairvoyants, are possibly created or generated by these auric bands. The same thing can be observed surrounding plants, trees, or domes/power spots.

This can be demonstrated by dowsing one of the auras, or auric bands, and following it around the person (plant, tree, etc.) being dowsed. Choose a band that is fairly close to the body and think "I want to follow this particular band around this person (or plant, etc.)," and have someone mark where you get reactions. See if you find that they connect, indicating circles, or whether they go inside or outside of the original markings, indicating spirals. If you dowse a person, he or she should be standing or sitting in a quiet or resting state of mind and not watching what you are doing as his or her changing thoughts and perceptions will change the auric field.

Dowsing is a powerful tool to unlock the secrets of nature. The more we understand about the unseen world we live in, the more effective we will be in all aspects of dowsing and in all aspects of our lives. Just keep dowsing, questioning, and exploring.
