Dowsing is a method used to detect hidden sources of water, minerals, petroleum, or energies. Spiritual dowsing is a divination tool used to detect universal energies as well as energy fields surrounding all life. It may also be used to gain insight into questions. Dowsing is conducted using either a dowsing pendulum, made of metal, stone or minerals or L-shaped or Y-shaped dowsing rods, made from wood or metal. Dowsing is fun to explore energies or detect hidden materials.
