Dowsing A Plastic Bottle Found On Dawlish Warren Beach

Print pagePDF pageEmail page


My daily walk along Dawlish Warren beach includes taking a black sack and filling it with non bio-degradable rubbish washed up along the shore line. I then leave what is recyclable in the skips left in the car park. One day I found myself wondering where one of the four plastic bottles had come from that day, so I dowsed asking the following questions:

Q1. Did you enter the sea from a boat or from the land? Ans. Land.

Q2. In which continent was the land, was it Europe? Ans. Yes

Q3. Which country was the land where you entered the sea? Ans. Great Britain.

Q4. Which county did you enter the sea from? Was it Dorset? Ans. No. Was it Devon? Ans. No. Was it Cornwall? Ans. Yes.

Q5. How long did it take to travel from Cornwall to Dawlish Warren? Ans. One year 3 months. (that made entry date August 2016.

Q6. I map dowsed the south coast of Cornwall running my finger along the coastline and asked, with the bottle in front of me, “Show me where you entered the sea.” Ans. Penzance.

Q7. Was the bottle left by a local Cornish person? Ans. No. Was it a holiday maker from outside of Cornwall? Ans. Yes.

CHARMIAN PRIGMORE

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Charmian Prigmore from Sampford Courtenay on Thursday 16th November 2017 at home.

A personal friend of mine for many years she joined DD in May, and we feel fortunate that she was still well enough to join us for our trips to Glastonbury and Lundy and latterly the 25th anniversary evening, all of which she thoroughly enjoyed.

Funeral arrangements will be announced shortly.

Diana Burton – Secretary

21st Century Dowsing

Dowsing has been used for thousands of years to locate water and minerals beneath the earth’s surface. Today dowsing is used by utility companies, the police, armies, mining and oil companies as well as by some health professionals. The proof of dowsing is in its results. It is a quick and accurate way of searching for things or accessing information.

We know dowsing works but when it comes to testing it, what does not work is the one size fits all scientific methodology which appears unsuited to assess the subtleties of the subjective dowsing experience when there is no “need to know”. Scientific discoveries in the fields of consciousness, intent, and the interconnectedness of everything as well as new discoveries in the field of quantum exploration, may soon provide a theoretical basis for dowsing.

Meanwhile dowsers are called on to help with archaeology, water leaks, clearing houses of unwanted energies, the health and well-being of both humans and animals and to find lost things.
