Dowsing, Divining and Diagnosis
The dowser told them to dig just ten foot away from one of their dry bore holes. He said they’d hit water at one hundred feet.
They hit water at ninety four foot.
There are various ways of dowsing, of divining. What they seem to share is that they set up a motor response as a read out. Examples include dowsing with a forked stick or bent wires, using a pendulum, "muscle testing", drawing ones finger across a radionics "plate", placing one’s finger on a "ouija" board…
Motor reflexes are fast. (In the Olympic sprints they have set 0.09 seconds as the threshold for a reflex start. If you leave your starting blocks 0.08 seconds after the gun you are judged to have made a false start before the gun.)
Thinking, cognition, is generally a slower process then motor reflexes. "Thinking" idles over larger parts of a second and over seconds. Think about it. (Accessing the right "file", the right information can be reflex, can be instant: but thinking about, becoming "aware" of it, takes place in time.)
So if we program a motor response to a question, that reflex response is quicker then thought, and we can bye-pass the conscious mind.
Bye-passing the conscious mind we access what? Spirit? God? The unconscious of preconscious.
Divining is no guarantee of truth. It is just a way of getting past the conscious mind to allow the expression of subtle information that we know somewhere behind the conscious mind.
I think that there may well be a subtle physiological signal that patient and skilled hands may be able to tease out. In clumsy doubting hands (like ours) the "noise", the "artefacts" are much greater then the "signal". (I will discuss this in a separate paper, "EDT signal:noise ratios", shortly.) It is this low signal to noise ratio that allows EDT to be used as a divining device. The technician, unconsciously, holds the probe in the spot a little longer, presses a little harder, angles the probe a little different. (We borrowed a prominent Clinical Ecologist’s Vega machine [not that prominent Clinical Ecologist. Another one]. Examining the probe under a binocular microscope one could see patterns of corrosion which would change the reading with changes in the angle at which the probe was held.)
Eileen Burford-Mason went sceptically into a booth at a Trade Show and was told by an EDT practitioner that 4 of the 5 substances that would put her into hospital with anaphylaxis were safe foods for her! Was this a reverse divining or a random divining?
Divining is not always going to work. In good hands it is the best way to find water. In good hand it is a very useful diagnostic tool. I have heard amazing anecdotes about the acumen of EDT.
Hold the tips of your left index finger and thumb together. With the right index finger and thumb gently, and then a little firmer, try to run the right finger/thumb through the left, pushing them apart.
Now relax and think, "Show me a "no"." Then test the fingers.
Now relax and think, "Show me a "yes"." Test the finger.
Do they feel different, the "yes" and "no"? If they do, you can use this to dowse by "muscle testing". Start by asking relatively none important questions. If you develop a confidence in this method of accessing your "intuition", your preconscious mind, you can proceed to use the method for more important questions…
