The art of divining, or dowsing, has for years been cloaked in mystery and superstition. Recognized by some as a means of finding water and minerals, it is actually a method for anyone to develop intuitive skills. This thought-provoking book demystifies dowsing and presents this ancient science as a powerful tool for self-knowledge.
Includes a brief history of dowsing, and step-by-step instructions for learning to use L-rods, Y-rods, and pendulums, as well as non-device dowsing. Shows how dowsing is used for locating water, gold and other minerals, buried artifacts, ancient ritual sites, and in police work to help find missing persons.
Terry Ross was a dowser from 1927 until his recent death in July 2000. Founder and President of the American Society of Dowsers, he was one of only six people in the world to receive the Col. Bell Award from the British Society of Dowsers.
"For a complete stranger to dowsing you would be hard put to find a better introduction; for those who think they already know something, it might be a surprising revelation."
– Journal of the British Society of Dowsers
"The Divining Mind is a must for your reading. Not just a book to be read and filed away, it is a book to be studied and absorbed and used as a guide for the everyday practical experiences of dowsing."
