The Complete Book of Dowsing: The Definitive Guide to Finding Underground Water
Without water we could not live, and yet it has become an increasingly scarce natural resource that often has to be piped over hundreds of miles to reach the places where it is most needed. In spite of modern technology, the search for water is spear-headed by the age-old technique of dowsing. The beauty of dowsing is its simplicity - using the simplest equipment the dowser can detect complex underground geological formations that can only otherwise be confirmed by expensive and time-consuming borehole drilling by engineers. In this text, Applegate explains the principles and techniques of dowsing so that the beginner should be able to detect water on a wide variety of sites and locations. He describes how dowsing consciousness works and explains how to develop this faculty so that the dowser can attain consistent, competent results. He also provides the reader with an understanding of geology and land formation, stressing their vital importance to successful dowsing.
