Dowsing is an ancient practice most commonly used for locating underground water sources but it has other uses.

Tony Talmage is a dowser in Guernsey and said it can also be used to find minerals, lost people and pets and negative energy amongst other things.

The practice uses hand held tools to highlight small muscle spasms caused by different "energies" in the Earth.

Tony explained dowsers traditionally use metal rods, a wooden stick or a pendulum held out in front of the dowser to detect things. He said: "It's all about connecting our own intuition to the information field which is out there that we don't see with our five senses."

When he first found out about it Tony said: "I thought it was all mumbo-jumbo."

However, he was intrigued and made himself a set of rods out of coat hangers and tested them in his garden where he knew there was water running underground.

He said: "As I walked over it the rods crossed and I thought 'I didn't do that!' so I thought 'There's something in this'."

His research into the subject also led him to discover that dowsing had been used by the American military during the Vietnam war to find mines and unexploded ordnance.

Tony added that as in any other fields people specialise in different areas of dowsing, but the ability to find water was the most common and anyone would be capable of that.

The energies to which Tony referred, he said, are connected to the notion of Hartmann Lines which are connected to the Earth's output of infrared radiation.

As well as their effect on the body in terms of locating water, minerals and other objects, Tony explained where the east-west lines cross north-south ones energy spirals happen, which can have detrimental effects on people who spend too much time over them.

This used to be more common than it is now. Is there any truth to this 'art'or is it a bit of a trick?

I wouldn't take Randi too seriously. Anyone want me to find a leaking pipe?

I can dowse for water & my mother could do it before me in 1976 when we had the drought my father took me around several vineries to pin point water and successful bore holes were drilled. I donít know how it works I am one of the biggest sceptics about that sort of thing about. But I tried with all of my strength to stop the twig from pointing down to the point where it actually cut the palms of my hands. Spooky Question
