Map Dowsing with Annie Holland
Dowsing with a pendulum is easy - allegedly!
Yet even for a reasonably experienced dowser like myself, who is more comfortable with rods, finding answers using a pendulum can be somewhat problematic. I’m sure it’s a bit like those 3D Magic Eye pictures - once you get the hang of what to do, it’s a piece of cake, but until then . . .
Thankfully I’m not the only one who struggles to replicate their rod work with a pendulum. When Annie offered to run a workshop for us pendular remedials, there was a surge of interest – to the extent that some 16 TDs crammed into Jacki’s sitting room on a sunny summer afternoon for extra tuition. Naturally, it would have been more comfortable out on the lawn, but we were kept in by the heat (for those of you reading this from the Southern Hemisphere, yes, this was in Cornwall, near England, in June – and we are choosing to stay in the shade!).
We had an enlightening, educational and enjoyable morning working through a series of exercises for dowser-and-pendulum, which Annie had prepared. These culminated in map-dowsing a plan of the Nine Maidens stone circle at Belstone.
I think it’s fair to say that most of us found some of what we had dowsed with our pendula. Water lines, earth energy and ley lines were all present - some of them even where we had sensed they might have been, which was encouraging.
