Coldridge Fair 2016

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.

The Tool Box – Another Encounter At The Survivalist Fair

It is always interesting to hear about how dowsing may be used in a person’s job or work place. A conversation arose on Rosemoor lawn with a member of the public who was telling me how he had used dowsing in desperation to find a water pipe running across a client’s garden. He was doing some ground works and whilst it was known there was a water pipe under the garden, no one knew where it was. Having dug numerous holes he could not find it so rang his father for advice who suggested dowsing for it which is what he did with a bit of wire, having never dowsed before. He successfully located the pipe saving a lot of time and further disruption to the garden.

He had not dowsed since, so we walked over the lawn and he found water and energy lines. We muscle tested the negative energy line and his arm easily sank to his side whilst standing on the edge of the line. We talked about his current work of hedge planting and stone wall building.

I asked him if he had noticed that in an established hedge line there was sometimes a gap where the hedge wasn’t growing or where one piece of hedge had died or had hardly grown. I suggested that the cause could be because a negative energy line was flowing under it. With “permission” this could be changed to positive, or diverted now he knew he could dowse with confidence. Without doing this, replanting would be a waste of time and money and could save a client both.

He then shared an observation that had baffled him when out in open country building stone walls. He noticed that for much of the time he and his work mates could make good progress but there were some days when for no apparent reason the whole team was lethargic and very little progress was made, and this could not be explained by an excess of lager the night before or Exeter City losing again. We speculated that a possible cause was that the work was taking place in an area of strong negative earth energy and that next time he could dowse for this and then either move the energy and/or ask for protection for him and his work mates.

What became apparent was that a pair of dowsing rods which stayed in his tool box, now looked like an essential piece of kit to bring to every work location.

Was There A Celtic Sanctuary In Mid-Devon? Part Two.

Print pagePDF pageEmail page


Following last November’s [2011] article (Reprinted here in Part One of this post. Ed)  in Devon Dowsers’ News and about our search for a major Celtic Sanctuary in the Bow area and the possible ‘water shrine’ that was dowsed in a field [SX677955] next to the infant River Yeo not far downstream from its source near Trundlebeer* (just north of the A30), I’m curious to know if anyone has anything further to add. Did any DD members physically check out the site with their rods or pendulums, or map-dowse this area? Read more

St.David`s Head, Pembrokeshire

Persephone (my second camper-van!) and I travelled to Pembrokeshire in July 2004. My objectives were twofold: to have a quiet, peaceful break, and to explore the area around St.David`s Head in more detail. I had previously spent a couple of days there the year before, on a trip back from Southern Ireland. What I saw, and felt, I liked, and decided to return to the area this year. Read more

In the late 80’s I was involved in the construction of the North Devon Link Road (A361) up from Tiverton to where I lived in Barnstaple. At that time John Bowers was running Dowsing classes and having done the course, like many others kept heckling him for more advanced courses, to which his response happily was to start up Devon Dowsers in late 1992, to which we all joined.

Thinking of joining Devon Dowsers?

Dowsing is a means of searching, not using our normal senses, and can be done on site as well as remotely (e.g. map and information dowsing). It is an ethical activity used for the greater good. Devon Dowsers welcomes those who have a fascination for this ancient art, and who wish to share their experiences with other open-minded members.

We always welcome new members, so please see our current programme  and come to a meeting to check us out. To learn more,  get in touch through our contact form. We’d love to hear from you.

23 & 24 June 2018

South Zeal, Devon

As the nights draw in and winter approaches, we can look back to June’s sunshine and reflect on the success of DFest, the first South West Dowsing Festival. Over 100 people attended and used the evaluation form to share how much they had enjoyed the weekend. It was a chance to dowse at some of Dartmoor’s iconic sites, to listen to engaging speakers, and to attend fascinating Dowsing Workshops.

A digital souvenir report is available HERE and under the Activities menu. We hope this will provide you with enjoyable memories and provide inspiration with your dowsing throughout the winter months.
