Dowsing for Water in the United Arab Emirates

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

Dowsing for Water in the United Arab Emirates

Most of you will be aware of all the press and radio coverage that the PhD student – Sally Le Page received when she publicised the fact that 10 out of 12 of our Water Boards have staff that use dowsing rods to find pipes and leaks. This came as no surprise to dowsers, as it can be a very quick way to identify where the errant pipe and escaping water is!

Something that wasn’t in the national press is that our very own Peter Taylor has had great success Dowsing for Water in the United Arab Emirates, a country that has minimal rainfall.

Peter received the initial request in September 2016, so he started with a ‘Google Earth map survey’ of the area and marked out all potential sources of water. His next step was to visit the area, for 2 weeks in October 2016, when 12 potential water sources in the area were located by dowsing.

Peter says that “Water is so scarce in these hot countries with very little rainfall, everyone is searching for it and that the water table is shrinking because more water is being extracted than is being replaced by natural seepage and rainfall”. In the area Peter was working, the rock formations are mostly old limestone and the water table varies from 850ft to 1600ft, or more; “the mountain regions are covered with small villages and towns, all of which have many boreholes drilled chasing the elusive water”.

2 wells were subsequently drilled in 2017 and have both passed all the required tests by the UAE authorities. The largest well is producing 244,800 gallons per day – an excellent flow for that part of the world, the second well produces 57,600 gallons per day.

Perhaps we could offer a PhD course in Water Divining??? :0)       Well done Peter!

REMINDER – INTERNATIONAL DOWSING DAY EVENT this Saturday 5th May

INTERNATIONAL DOWSING DAY at SHOBROOKE HOLY WELL & CADBURY CASTLE              

Saturday 5th May 2018

In line with other dowsing groups in the south west, this year we are celebrating Holy Wells as well as the Mary Michael Earth Energy Lines. Shobrooke Holy Well has been chosen due to its proximity to Cadbury Castle and ease of access. The church warden Rosemary is very happy for us to dress the Well and is interested in finding our dowsing results for the source of the water.

Cadbury Castle is an Iron Age Hill Fort, with clearly visible defensive earth ramparts covered in bluebells, and great views! It may have been used by the Saxons as a ‘moot’ meeting place and was later occupied by parliamentarian troops during the Civil War for the siege of Bickleigh Castle in 1644. Local legend has it that a dragon guards treasure buried in the fort!

A third century Roman ritual shaft or Well was found during excavation, filled with stuff from a nearby Bronze Age Barrow, but its exact location has now been lost.

The Michael Earth Energy Line passes right across the site. The Mary and Michael Ley Line, around which the two energy lines twist like serpents, is in direct alignment with the rising sun at Beltane, at the beginning of May.

In connection with other dowsing groups across the southwest we plan to ‘energise’ the Michael Line through dance, singing and generally having a good time. We will be joined by members of the Dance of the Directions community who will dance connecting earth and sky, and the four directions of the compass.

We intend to dowse for Michael, the ritual shaft, maybe a Well, stories about people who lived there, the Bronze Age barrow and lots of other stuff! And maybe talk to the guardian dragon – if she wants to chat!

Proposed programme of activities

11.30am Meet at Shobrooke Holy Well for dowsing energies and the water source and Well dressing ceremony. Please bring flowers if you are called to do so.

12.30pm Meet at Cadbury Castle and dowse the Michael Line and mark out its width and measure its strength.

1pm to say 3pm                               Have a picnic

Perform the Dance of the Directions

Play of instruments (any musicians out there?)

Drum

Sing – especially the Mary & Michael Chant by Danu Fox  U-Tube

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUFvcZta8xU. Any earth singers amongst us?

After completion of ‘activities’ dowse for any changes to the Line.

Later in the afternoon                   Dowsing other features around Cadbury

Just enjoy this beautiful place and the bluebells!

DIRECTIONS

Shobrooke is signed off the A3072 on the road from Crediton to Bickleigh/Tiverton just outside Crediton, and the Holy Well is located very near to the church (which is not in the village!).  Park by the church and walk up Church Lane opposite in the direction of the village. The Well is a few hundred metres away from the church set into the roadside bank.

Cadbury Castle is signed off the A3072 further along the road between Crediton and Bickleigh/Tiverton. It is signed off the main road on the right hand side. The path up to the castle is about 1/2 mile off the main road. Go past the church, and there is limited parking in a lay-by shortly after a bend in the road – where the signed footpath to the castle starts. It is about a 10 minute (gently climbing) walk up to the castle.  There is parking on the road by the church, which is only a short walk to the start of the path up to the castle.

DFest 2018

As you will be aware from the previous announcements and emails, together with Somerset Dowsers we have been organising the South West’s first Dowsing Festival – DFest SW 18, which will be taking place on Sat 23rd & Sun 24th June, in and around South Zeal in Devon.

Booking has been open for this now for the last couple of weeks, and we’re glad to have some of you joining us already.

I wanted to let you know that the Event will very soon be publicised more widely – to BSD Affiliated Local Groups around the Country, and at the BSD Spring Symposium at the end of this week.

As a Local South West Group we have had priority booking, so if you want to come along and would like to stand the best chance of securing your choices of Outings/Workshop (as these will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis), we would recommend getting in there soon (before it is more widely publicised).

As a Member of Devon Dowsers the whole weekend costs £40 (not including food and accommodation) – which gives you a £10 discount on the full fee of £50.  You can come for just a day if you wish – please see the Booking form for day costs.

The weekend is open to novices and experts alike and promises to be a wonderful opportunity to enhance your dowsing skills, have fun and socialise with other dowsers.  Friends and family welcome too.

We hope that many of you will be joining us for this great weekend.

Gwynn Paulett – Chairman

For full details and necessary documentation, please see the Devon Dowser’s website, and please return booking forms to Diana (as per the Booking Form).

Coldridge Fair 2016

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

Coldridge was a “hot” ridge when five of us shared the Devon Dowsers stand at the annual fair on the 2nd July 2016. Sally had thoughtfully arranged a sturdy gazebo to shelter from the odd shower and the sun, which benefited both ourselves and her dance troop who were colourfully dancing inside the arena.
