Jim Willis: Dowsing with Humility, Health and (Spiritual) Hunger
After graduating from a U.S. School of Music, Jim was a high school band and orchestra teacher during the day, a symphony trombonist at the weekend, a jazz musician at night and a choral conductor on Sunday mornings, before gaining his Master’s degree in religion and entering the Protestant ministry for 40 years.
The author of 13 books on spirituality and lost civilisations, he taught world religions and instrumental music, while working part time as a carpenter, the host of his own drive-time radio show, an arts council director and guest lecturer, speaking about topics ranging from historical studies to contemporary spirituality. His teaching career produced both the comprehensive one-volume encyclopaedia of religion, ‘The Religion Book’ and ‘Armageddon Now’, written with his wife, Barbara.
Concern for spiritual growth in contemporary society prompted his book ‘Faith, Trust & Belief’, while his love for long-distance cycling led him to make several cross-country bike trips and inspired his biking trilogy, ‘Journey Home,’ ‘Snapshots and Visions’, and ‘Savannah: A Bicycle Journey Through Time and Space’.
Upon retirement to the woods of South Carolina, he was determined to confront the essential spirituality that has inspired humankind since the very beginnings of time. The result of this quest is chronicled in his books, ‘The Dragon Awakes: Rediscovering Earth Energy’, ‘Ancient Gods and Supernatural Gods’.
His recent books include ‘Lost Civilizations ‘(Visible Ink Press), ‘The Quantum Akashic Field’, (Findhorn/Inner Traditions), ‘Hidden History: Ancient Aliens and the Suppressed Origins of Civilization’ (Visible Ink Press) and ‘Censoring God: The Suppression of the Lost Books of the Bible and Other Scriptures’ (Visible Ink Press, due to be released April 1, 2021).
In 2015, Jim enjoyed visiting the ancient sites of West Cornwall, accompanied by John and Frances Watts, and John and Jill Moss. And found his “Wow!” moment with dowsing!
Dowsing with Humility, Health, and (Spiritual) Hunger
Over the course of the last hundred years, physicists have discovered a counter-intuitive, intensely complex yet discernible landscape called Quantum Reality. Little did they realize they had uncovered, through sophisticated mathematics, a field that has been explored by visionaries for thousands of years. Entrance to this arena is afforded anyone who incorporates dowsing into their lifestyle. But reality outside our normal perception realm is not to be entered lightly. To explore an area from which our five senses have evolved to ward us off requires a degree of humility. “Here there be dragons!” as the old maps used to say about unknown spaces. It also takes a healthy level of emotional balance and stability. Most of all, we need to demonstrate the desire, the spiritual hunger, to explore such realms. This is our birth right. It’s why we were born. It reveals the purpose of human life.
In this presentation, we will seek to understand how to prepare for the exploration of this reality.
