The British Society of Dowsers has proposed that 5 May (birthday of the late dowser Hamish Miller) be declared ‘International Dowsing Day’ as an annual event, with the aim of promoting dowsing to the public. Several local affiliated groups are planning events or site visits around the UK, and the idea has also been picked up enthusiastically by several international groups, including the Canadian Society of Dowsers, The American Society of Dowsers, and the Australian Society of Dowsers. In the UK, the Earth Singers group are planning to visit as many nodes of the Michael & Mary lines as possible … Continue reading International Dowsing Day May 5

Gosh, it’s been a while since I updated this blog, and here we are racing towards the equinox. Although I haven’t found time to update the blog regularly, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy! It’s been an interesting start to the year, and I’ve been busy implementing new projects and preparing material for my forthcoming dowsing courses. I can now confirm that I will be presenting at both the Canadian Society of Questers’ Conference in Harrison Hot Springs, BC; and the Canadian Society of Dowsers’ Conference in Hamilton, ON, Canada during the month of May. At both events I … Continue reading Springing Forward
Whatever your faith, religious, spiritual or cultural beliefs; the turning of the wheel at the dark of the year will carry some significance for you. This year has been particularly turbulent for many people around the globe, and it’s always good to reflect on those less fortunate than ourselves at this time of year. War, natural disasters, famine and other upheavals continue to remind us what a fragile jewel our planet Earth is. It is easy to get depressed about the state of things, but it is harder to acknowledge that the best approach is for us to keep on … Continue reading Solstice Blessings
There was a very good article in Metro today about electrosensitivity – it’s well worth a read. Insomnia is one of the biggest effects of ES and Weeks says this lack of sleep affects our immune systems and our ability to repair and fight infections. ‘A study by scientists in America categorically showed that having your mobile phone by your bed at night affects your ability to go into a deep sleep,’ he says. ‘This is sufficient evidence to show that mobile phones don’t allow us to go into a deep REM [Rapid Eye Movement] sleep, thus preventing us from … Continue reading Electrosensitivity: Is your mobile really a threat to your health?
Dowsers hope more people will twig the ancient art. A very positive report on the British Society of Dowsers’ annual conference from Geoff Ward: A new scientific investigation into how dowsing works should help to raise the profile of the British Society of Dowsers, its annual conference heard Dowsing has moved a long way from the forked hazel twig and its traditional roots of water and minerals divining to tracing earth energies – its biggest growth area – improving health and well-being, locating archaeological remains and even to archaeo-astronomy. Two hundred aficionados of the rods and pendulum attended the British … Continue reading Dowsers hope more people will twig the ancient art
Nobel Prize winner reports effects of homeopathic dilutions — European Committee for Homeopathy. Here’s an interesting story from the European Committee for Homeopathy… In a recent study Professor Luc Montagnier, a French virologist who co-discovered HIV and who won the Nobel Prize in 2008, and his team report the results of a series of rigorous experiments investigating the electromagnetic properties of highly-diluted biological samples. The study demonstrates that some bacterial DNA sequences are able to induce electromagnetic waves at high aqueous dilutions. It appears to be a resonance phenomenon triggered by the ambient electromagnetic background of very low frequency waves. … Continue reading Nobel Prize winner reports effects of homeopathic dilutions
According to the February issue of Electrosensitivity UK, two provinces in France are planning on replacing their entire wireless technology infrastructure with fibre-optics by July 2010: To remove the health dangers of WiFi, Wimax, digital TV and digital Radio, the départments of the Drôme and the Ardèche in France are aiming by July 2010 to replace wireless with fibre-optic cables, at a cost of 123 M€ (184 M$). This will cover 100% of the population of 0.95 million, connecting 372,000 homes via the ordinary phone line through 213 switchboards. It will provide ultra high speed broadband connection (100 Mbps) without … Continue reading France aims to remove wireless tech
While I’m on the subject of eulogies, here’s the one I wrote for the grandaddy of earth mysteries, John Michell, who passed on St. George’s Day 2009. This was published in ‘Dowsing Today’ last July. I find it rather interesting that John, the archetypal eccentric Englishman, passed on the patron saint’s day whilst Hamish Miller, a Scotsman, passed on Burn’s Night. Not exactly the patron saint’s day to be sure, but it’s probably more important to most Scots, both native and ex-pat, than St. Andrew’s day. Perhaps it’s just one of those curious cosmic coincidences that let you know there … Continue reading John Michell
The passing of dowser Hamish Miller on Burn’s Night may have been unexpected to the rest of us, yet Hamish himself had been there before – three times to be exact – so at least he knew what to expect. One of my biggest regrets is that I didn’t manage to get a podcast interview from Hamish. We had spoken about the possibility a couple of times at BSD Conference and Hamish was very amenable to the idea, but somehow we never managed to find the time during the weekend. However, at our 2008 Conference I discovered that he had … Continue reading Hamish Miller and the Lost Podcast
