REMINDER – DEVON DOWSERS TRIP TO LUNDY Saturday 12.8.2017

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

 

Just a reminder that our trip to Lundy takes place a week on Saturday 12th August.

Please be at the Port Office on Bideford Quay no later than 7.45am for our sailing at 8.30am where you will receive your folder with your ticket, a Lundy leaflet with a map of the island, and information on what to dowse for when you get there.

There are three different suggested routes to take with areas to dowse – one taking you to the north of the island – but you are under no obligation to follow any of these, the day is yours to do as you like.

Please see the pre-visit info sheet sent to you recently on what to take, where to park etc.

A number of us are staying over in Bideford and will be going for a meal when we arrive back – probably to Weatherspoons in Bridgeland Street.

REMINDER – OUR FIRST “DISCOVER DOWSING IN DEVON” WORKSHOP

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

…IS AT BERRY CASTLE, HUNTSHAW, near GREAT TORRINGTON
24th JUNE 2017 from 11.00am – 4.00pm – £7.50 per person

Berry Castle Iron Age settlement at Huntshaw in North Devon is to be the first “Discover Dowsing in Devon” Workshop, which is open to all and an opportunity to learn how to dowse a settlement such as Berry Castle. Experienced members of Devon Dowsers will enable you to dowse using L rods and pendulums.

You will search for the hearths, walls, and entrances of round houses; where the forge, workshop and charcoal store was; the water sources in Iron Age days; where the leaders lived, and the nature of the ceremonial site, which will include dowsing for the earth energy lines, spirals and water courses.

Berry Castle has its own unique energy and spirit of place. If you wish to join us for what will be a special learning opportunity then book your place by emailing Diana Burton dandy67@tiscali.co.uk. It will be on a “first come first served” basis.

A nominal charge of £7.50 p will be payable in cash on the day. Either bring your own L rods and pendulum or we can loan or sell you some on the day. Please bring your own lunch and water to drink.

Sturdy walking boots are a must, as the site is covered in tree stumps and some brambles.  Please check the weather and dress accordingly.

International Dowsing Day 7th May 2017 – Visit To Cadbury Castle

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

Devon Dowsers (last minute) visit to Cadbury Castle (the Devon one near Bickleigh!)

Nine of us turned up for this hastily arranged gathering, primarily to see how we could affect the Michael Line which runs right through the Iron Age fort in accord with Trencom Dowsers who were gathering down at Carn Les Boel in Cornwall and other groups for both the Michael and Mary Lines.

From Devon Dowsers we had: Gwynn, Diana, Joan, Michael, Soozie and Alan.

We had invited ‘dancers’ from the Dance Awake community so we could employ the potentially good and connecting energy of the Dance of the Directions. This dance emanates from the Cherokee of North America and basically is a dance that connects the dancer’s heart with the earth, sun and moon, and promotes peace and goodwill. Andrew Broadhead and Tracey attended from this community.

The ninth attendee was Richard Dealler, who is responsible for the Mary Michael Pilgrim’s Way guide books and pilgrimages, walks based appropriately on Hamish Miller’s findings of the two lines in The Sun and the Serpent!

We first plotted the centre line of Michael (with flags) which runs roughly WNW to ESE across the middle of the enclosure. We then plotted the two outside edges of the line at six different points roughly 10 metres apart.

We all sang the introduction to the Dance and then Tracey, Soozie and Alan did 9 rounds of the dance in the middle of the plotted part of the line whilst Andrew drummed the ‘heart beat’.

We then dowsed where the edges of the line had moved to, and found that the width of Michael measured at 6 points roughly 10 metres apart averaged 4.74 metres before we ‘performed’ and averaged 8.65 metres after the dance. This meant the line almost doubled in width on average.

What we didn’t have time to do was to measure the contraction rate of the line back to its original position – assuming it must contract again? Or whether it actually continued to expand for a while?

We also tried to measure the strength of the line before and after. None of us had any measuring scale so we just asked for a percentage which we thought would at least give us relative values. When dowsing we used the scale of 0% for zero energy and 100% for maximum energy. We found that the outside edges of the line were stronger than the centre at about 88%. This had increased tenfold after the dance! We are not sure what these strength findings mean, apart from there was a very large increase. And not sure how the percentage can go so far over the ‘maximum’? Our measurements are available if anyone wants to see them!

Other dowsing going on in this visit was Soozie communicating with the guardian dragon of the site, which various people claimed to have seen! Our very own Serpent? The dragon appeared to enjoy Soozie drumming the boundary of the fort, and the Dance of the Directions!

And Gwynn dowsed the location of a Roman offerings shaft/well from which archaeologists have extracted lots of offering items but apparently failed to log its exact position on the site! Maybe this is the mythical treasure that the dragon reputedly guards?

We will have to ask next year when we plan to return for IDD!

Hamish Miller Celebration – The Michael And Mary Currents 7th May

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

DD have received a message from Jill Moss who runs Trencom Dowsers in West Penwith, Cornwall, who asks if it can be circulated to all our members in case they are interested:-

 ‘Every May we celebrate International Dowsing Day and Hamish Miller’s birthday on the first/last node point of the Michael and Mary energy currents at the headland of Carn Lês Boel, near Land’s End. Apart from singing, chanting, drumming and a happy group picnic, the afternoon always includes dowsing and measuring the currents before and after our celebration – with fascinating results.

This year, on Sunday 7 May, I am planning a bigger event and I am hoping that any dowsers who could conveniently get to the Michael and/or Mary current, anywhere between us and Norfolk on that afternoon, could join us for an interesting dowsing experience.

If you are interested, please email me. Our focus each year is on harmony and goodwill along the currents as they pass around the globe.Please join us.

Best wishes,  * Jill Moss* (mossinthewoods@btopenworld.com)

DOWSING DURING ECLIPSES – A report by Nigel Twinn

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

 

For dowsers (and especially earth energy dowsers) eclipses of the sun or the moon offer unparalleled access to the greatest practical dowsing laboratory available to any of us, at any time. A big claim, maybe – but try it for yourself.

As you will probably already be aware, an eclipse occurs when the sun, the moon and the earth line up in space and time. It is an occasion when energy lines and gravitational forces react in a spectacular manner, and right in front of you. Even the most hardened sceptical dowser would find it difficult to avoid the conclusion that something significant is altering very rapidly and on a grand scale during the brief period of the alignment of the celestial bodies.

Those who have followed the astronomical exploits of my wife, Ros, and I over the years – which started with the washout of the 1999 total solar eclipse over Tavistock – will be familiar with the scenario of energy lines contracting, crystal auras expanding and just about everything else switching polarity for a short spell around the apex of the event.

Eclipses are surprisingly common across the globe and, although it is certainly more fun to see the celestial fireworks right overhead, from a practical dowsing perspective you will get a perfectly positive reaction anywhere in the world.

Information about forthcoming eclipses is easy to obtain from websites such as Time and Date, BAA or NASA. Just choose yourself something you know well in your own house or locality – maybe an energy line, a ley, an aura of something or someone. Almost anything ‘energetic’ will react to some extent.

Interpreting the data you get is another matter. Like almost everything in dowsing, getting started is the easy bit – explaining what you experience is a bit more complicated. Whilst I am quite confident that you would be impressed by the eclipse dowsing experience, detaching the information gleaned from everything else that is going on in the cosmic background, the local environment and (dare I say it) yourself, is another matter entirely.

There will be a very high profile total solar eclipse on 21st August this year – which will be seen right across the US. But you don’t have to give Mr Trump your tourist dollars to experience the essence of it. It will be a golden opportunity for dowsers all over the world (including us here in Devon) to sense and/or measure the earth’s physical, gravitational and electromagnetic fields – and, even more importantly, its subtle information base – being stretched and squashed by forces we can hardly imagine.

By way of explanation, our latest eclipse data is attached, taken during an annular solar eclipse, which was only visible in South America and Africa.

A series of eclipse reports and travelogues can be seen on www.nigeltwinn.org

ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE (not visible from the UK) Sunday 26th February 2017

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

An annular eclipse occurs when the sun, the moon and the earth line up exactly, but the shadow of the moon does not quite obliterate the full disc of the sun, as seen from the earth, leaving a complete ‘ring of fire’ around its full circumference for a short period.

This annular eclipse was only visible from South America and the southern parts of Africa.

Data recorded in Tavistock, Devon UK.

All linear measurements in centimetres – all times in UTC (co-ordinated universal time – same as GMT in the winter in the UK).

First location to see the partial eclipse begins 12:10
First location to see the full eclipse begins 13:15
Maximum Eclipse 14:58
Last location to see the full eclipse ends 16:31
Last location to see the partial eclipse ends 17:35

See the legend below for details of the objects dowsed during this eclipse.

Discover Dowsing in Devon – First Workshop

Dowsing the Iron Age settlement of Berry Castle at Huntshaw will be the first of the “Discover Dowsing in Devon” Workshops and will take place on Saturday 24th June 2017. Places will be limited and further details will be posted soon. “Discover Dowsing in Devon” will be a series of on-site dowsing workshops run throughout the year and open to anyone interested in learning how to dowse archaeological sites; earth energies; ancient sites; or how to dowse for utilities and water. Workshops will be led by members of Devon Dowsers at different locations around Devon. They will be both informative and fun but could also leave you a little astonished at what you can discover by dowsing!

Gwynn Paulett - Chairman Devon Dowsers.
