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).

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.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Gunther Schneck recently who has been a DD member since 1995. He leaves a wife and three sons. Funeral arrangements are private.

We have received the following from Michiko Schneck,  his daughter in law from Mumbai, India which is reproduced in full for your interest.

The importance of clearing energy disturbances when admitted to hospital.

In the memory of my dearest teacher and father in law, Dr Gunther Schneck            

by Michiko Schneck

Last Christmas, all our family got together in Devon as we all knew that Gunther’s health was deteriorating and learnt that he was having pancreatic cancer.

As some readers may know, Dr Gunther Schneck was a devoted dowser who was always finding interesting and new earth energies. Since I am the only member of the family who is really interested in this subject, he spent so much time with me sharing all his knowledge and findings. I learnt so much from him.

In February, my husband was told that Gunther was seriously ill and may only have few more days of life. My husband decided to go back to England from India. His two brothers also travelled back from the USA and Austria to see their parents.

First thing I did when I heard this news was to dowse.
– Is he really in a critical condition?
– What is his physical energy level?
– What about emotional and mental energy level?
– Is he affected by some external energies, like psychic energies left in the hospital?

I know that there are a few levels to check and that I can release and cleanse unwanted energies. Nearly 15 years of experience in healing and dowsing brought me to that direction straight away. I knew that Gunther would do the same if he was in good health.

Yes, he was very low in physical energy as well as emotional energy.
There were so many entities and psychic energy disturbances around him.

I cleared them out and had a very strong feeling that Gunther still wanted to live – as his mental energy was so strong and clear.

Despite the fact all his immediate family were trying to get ready to accept his departure, I had complete faith in my dowsing and as expected his condition improved as the dowsing indicated.

What I picked up was that so much psychic energies were left in the hospital, not knowing where to go… desperate to live but giving in at the same time. It is like some high suicidal spot. Spirits that had left their bodies had desperate feeling of “I cannot cope with this life any longer” “What is the meaning of this life if I am living like this?” If one has felt bit like that, within a second of those depressive thoughts attract these negative energies and can take over somebody’s life very quickly.

In fact, I have never thought of that, but it made me 100% sure that many lives are lost because of those disturbances and it is so easy to feel downbeat when you are ill.

I started checking his energy levels every day. At the beginning, even every few hours. I just felt that all the energy left in the hospital needed to be cleared. As a healer, I send them healing energy so that they can go back to where they are supposed to be, not to push away. To be honest, only some were very negative and needed serious healing, but all others are quite light and just needed some help. It was matter of quantities and frequencies.

The more I did it, the more I wanted him to leave the hospital as soon as possible, but at the same time, maybe he was telling me to write about this so that more dowsers and healers to be aware. They are able to do something about it and help their families and friends. So it seemed to become our final project together.

When I noticed his low energy, I started to report that to my husband. Gradually he seemed to be aware that what I am doing was not complete fantasy because he could confirm the situation with his mother. Sometimes, my mother in law who had been really brave with the situation and had been absolutely devoted to her husband, started to feel low, and even that had an effect on Gunther, so I had been checking and trying to make the energy clear as possible so that his self healing energy was fully active.

Despite the fact I kept telling my husband that Gunther should be back home for rest of his life, he said it was impossible. Doctors kept trying to see if any of the medication would help, but finally in early April, he was released from the hospital.

It was not totally happy news for other members of the family as that meant that there was no more to be done at the hospital, but how happy I felt for him! How admired the English NHS system to release the patients (never in Japan – where I come from almost all terminally ill people die in the hospital).

As I imagined, no more negative energies attacked him like he was in the hospital. He could see their beautiful garden from his bed and I think he was happy to be back home. His condition was stabilized.

When he was released from hospital he was only given a few days to live but more than a month passed in a quite peaceful way.

Then I had a question and thoughts. If Gunther does not need me to clear energies, I would just stop checking and let it be.

My husband was visiting his parents again in middle of May. I thought that Gunther would be happy to have him visit and I did not have any doubt so I did not even check how he was for some days. On the day my husband was travelling down to Devon, I had an e-mail from him, saying that Gunther was in a very critical condition.

I checked his energy and I did not even want to stop the pendulum to show the result. It was obviously low. Mental level was also very low but somehow his emotional level was good.

I tried to clear the energy but it did not last very long. I was not sure what could be done but lots of peaceful healing energy went in.

It was 13th May and that was my final energy checking for my father in law. He had his 88th birthday only several days ago.

Since we had planned to visit in June, I really hoped to see him in person but he seemed to have chosen the right timing for his beloved wife. He knew that she needed support more than anybody and he did make the right decision. As I know that Gunther was emotionally happy, I am so happy for him that he ended his life with dignity and his will, which I believe. My Indian friend said that that is the true way of spiritual person’s choice and only few could achieve. Yes, he deserved it so.

He was such a jolly person who had a really good sense of humour. I can imagine him smiling, singing, joking and enjoying to be back with his soul.

As our 12 and 5 year old children are already into dowsing, I am sure that we will keep him busy as our dowsing guide for some time.

With compassion and gratitude,

Michiko Schneck,  
Mumbai, India 18th May 2017
