Dowsing for antique bottles

Postby Ian Pegler » Thu Jan 12, 2006 9:20 am

Here's an interesting anecdote for you ...

A couple of years ago I taught a friend of mine to dowse and loaned her a couple of introductory books (Dennis Wheatley's "Principles of Dowsing" and "Spiritual Dowsing" by Sig Lonegren).

She subsequently taught her partner to dowse. It turns out this guy is into finding digging up antique bottles, some of which fetch a surprising price tag.

Fairly recently they decided to do an experiment with this "dowsing" thing. The two of them independantly map-dowsed for bottles using a crudely drawn map of an area of private land. When they compared maps they'd both idenfified the same location. (The experiment was done blind, i.e. they didn't look at each other's maps until after they'd both dowsed).

Subsequently they visited the location and (with permission) dug - successfully - for antique bottles.

It's a pity I can't go into more detail (for reasons of privacy), however it does demonstrate another application of dowsing.

Yes I spent some nice days digging near the Morris Park in Coventry for bottles, some chaps camped on site so as NOT to be pushed off a good position, it was a fun thing at the time, I have some bottle stops somewhere,never could get the misses to get her hands dirty :lol:
