    Anyone can do it - even the most sceptical - I know, because I have a friend who is a Yorkshire man and he is the most sceptical person I have ever met. He held the hazel twigs so tight (he is very strong having been a prop forward for Halifax in his day) that the bark stripped off the twigs as they fought to move in his hands 😄 You should have seen his face!

    Just been doing a bit of reading on this trying to find some research. It’s worth mentioning that while the dictionary doesn’t seem to distinguish between divining, dowsing and radesthesia; I do. I only have experience of physical dowsing: locating pipe work and electric cables - this I would call dowsing. The more psychic uses such as asking questions or map dowsing are beyond my experience. This I would call radesthesia.

    If you discovered that dowsing rods worked usefully ( I can’t claim “accurately” because I can miss by half a pace) say eighty percent of the times you used them; would that answer your question? That is approximately my hit rate. It has taken time to establish the different way that I convert my reaction to tool movement. I once stared at the ground looking for some highly improbable stimulus while my wife laughed. I was standing beneath a power line. I had however realised that the rods were moving strangely. I suspect that successful or consistent repetition might answer your more general inquiry. Indeed😄. The more his muscles were braced against the twig the more effort he would apply to movement. I wonder why no one has done research into the initial stimulus. It’s one of the few science projects that I can think of that could be carried out at relatively low cost, at least to the stage where data is handed over to neuroscience. Unfortunately I do not think there is a PhD to be found in the back yard on this one.

    Now! I wonder what sort of reply folk here are anticipating from me😄. Well firstly this post is just my own experience and my opinion. Your beliefs and thinking are your own and safe from me. I have dowsed successfully using wires. I have found water pipes and sewers that I did not know existed. My view is that anyone can do it and that it is a biological response to ......... now that I am unsure of as yet. I do not see it as a psychic phenomenon but perhaps that depends upon your definition of psychic. I do not see it as anything connected with the materials used in the dowsing process. I can dowse equally effectively with rods of steel, copper, plastic or wood. On the other hand it may be that for some, the dowser’s awareness of those materials affects their response. In my opinion the dowsing tool has nothing to do with reception of the input stimulus (water, electric current, subterranean metal object etc.). It is the human (mammalian? animus?) dowser that picks up the information. The pendulum, rods, hazel twig are outputs alerting the dowser to a stimulus that they have picked up but of which they are not conscious. In other words: The dowser is the dowsing tool. The response is physical. The pendulum etc. is just an indicator. There are Australian well dowsers making a living from their talent and who do not need any tool at all. They have developed an awareness of their own reaction. It’sa very interesting subject and one which needs further scientific investigation. I am wondering whether mammals (and others) are aware of subtleties in gravity but that is pure conjecture.
