Lost your keys?
Looking for oil? Or searching for water? You might find what you are seeking using the ancient art of dowsing.

Traditionally, the most common dowsing rod is a forked (Y-shaped) branch from a tree or bush. Some dowsers prefer branches from particular trees, and some prefer the branches to be freshly cut. Witchhazel is the rod of choice in the United States but branches from willow or peach trees are also popular. The two ends on the forked side are held one in each hand with the third (the stem of the Y) pointing straight ahead. Other rods have been made of wire or even old coat hangers bent at right angles. The dowser then walks the area in question; when the rods they are holding become agitated the dowser knows this is the place most likely to provide the item being sought.

Alternatively, dowsers may use a pendulum made of stone or metal, the pendulum method is often used to diagnose illness, the direction of its rotation or swing gives the dowser yes or no answers. Dowsing in its modern form, was first recorded in Germany but it has been influential in the United States.

Oliver Cowdery, who acted as the scribe for the Book of Mormon and was the Second Elder`of the Church, used a divining rod for revelatory purposes. In a revelation given to Joseph Smith, God affirmed Cowdery`s use of dowsing and said that it was a divine gift through which Cowdery could learn the mysteries of God.

During the Vietnam War, some US Marines used dowsing in an attempt to locate weapons and tunnels. The real joy of dowsing is that almost anyone can do it to some degree and that the materials required are inexpensive or even free. Now then, all I have to do is find my dowsing rods!
