MAP DOWSING THE WORLD
FROM THE COMFORT OF AN ARMCHAIR
In metaphysics Map Dowsing is an ancient art. Some people use it for finding lost gold, pirate treasures, oil, minerals, and old civilizations. It was all done on paper maps and charts and the degree of accuracy – well, it was often not accurate at all. A pencil line on a standard map could cover a quarter of a mile.
Now, in the Digital Age map dowsing has sharpened the pencil so to speak. You can now dowse a target to within two or three feet. It’s a facility called Google Earth. Originally introduced about 16 years ago, Google Earth is a computer program that renders Planet Earth based on satellite imagery. It maps the Earth by the superimposition of images obtained from satellite images, aerial photography and the GIS -- geographic information system -- onto a 3D globe.
It means dowsers can now locate targets anywhere on the planet with almost pinpoint accuracy. Earlier this year some friends in the Basque Country asked if I could dowse a grassy plot of land near a cemetery. There were rumors victims from the 1936 Spanish Civil War had been buried there. While seated at home in New Jersey, the plot of land, 3,600 miles away, came up on my laptop and my pendulum showed a large number of bodies in the unmarked grave. When asked, the pendulum indicated the “shadow” of the trench in which over two dozen bodies were buried.
Some weeks later, on the actual site, I dowsed 28, possibly 32 bodies. A local archaeologist suspected more. This was an unusual case. Most of my work with Google Earth occurs with geopathic stress zones, geospirals, ley lines and vortices – all Earth energies.
As in all dowsing, the dowser’s mind must be focused on the search target.
Laptop/computer with a good viewing screen.
Google Earth Pro (this is “free” right now)
A thick notepad and a writing instrument.
A pointer (a dried out ballpoint pen will do)
Any pendulum (One with a point built in if you do direct dowsing)
A car equipped with a GPS or a hand-held “hiker’s” GPS.
Direct dowsing is when you use a pointed pendulum on any map including Google Earth.
Indirect or blind dowsing is when a dowser turns away from the screen and focuses on the pendulum and the target, while the other hand holding a pointer, moves it slowly across the computer screen. When the pointer is over the target, higher consciousness causes the pendulum to rotate sharply.
The advantage of blind dowsing, especially with discovery of leys is that conscious limitations are reduced and higher consciousness comes into play. Observers may brand such a technique as “spooky” so simply explain “It’s my higher self” or “My spirit guide.”
Once an energy field is located, enlarge the target on Google Earth; visually or blindly work to find the perfect coordination point. Coordinates are found at the bottom right hand corner of the screen. In most cases, the dowser when physically checking the place in real life, will find his or her work is either right on, or just a couple of feet away.
For beginners it is best to practice on energy fields that are close to home and targets are easily checkable. With practice, the beginning dowser will discover the process works well.
Note: The above is part of a presentation I made at the National Convention of the American Society of Dowsers at Saratoga Springs, NY in June 2017. I am currently looking to do a workshop on this in the tri-state area. During the winter season we will be giving a practical hands-on workshop on energy dowsing using maps and Google Earth. Participants will need to bring a laptop or something with a large display screen. Stay tuned for this.
Article: “SLOT NUMBER FOUR”
Earth energies at a local college.
Betty Lou and I often work-out at the gymnasium and swimming pool at the Burlington Community College and if I’m driving, I habitually park at the number four slot in the parking lot. I had no idea why.
Some months ago I got to studying leys – they’re Old Tracks used by our Native Ancestors as walkways – and found that many of North America’s colleges and universities are situated on leys, beautiful and attractive Earth energy.
Princeton is boxed in by four leys, Rutgers University – Newark campus has two, Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., has two as does Yale in New Haven CT. We happened to drop by Elmira College in Elmira NY and found three leys and Cornell University in Ithica has a trio as well. Temple University that sprawls around North Broad, Philadelphia, enjoys four leys – a good selection by Russell Conwell, the 19th century teacher who penned the classic “Acres of Diamonds” then acquired a cottage with a site that is now the heart of Temple University Hospital.
The American Society of Dowsers pegs its National Conventions every summer on the arts and sciences domain of Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. There’s good reason because Skidmore is unique in higher education institutes – it benefits from five leys and a multiple of geospirals. In the dowsing world it is a hotspot. Two of the leys run through the dining room and three leys converge on the grass quadrangle where in semester days, many students are found outdoors studying and lazing in the Earth energy.
Rowan University in Mullica Hill, NJ, had its origin as a teachers’ college, now its campuses occupy a major chunk of Glassboro, NJ.
Rowan University rose to world attention almost overnight when it was chosen to be the site of an historic summit conference between President Lyndon Johnson and Soviet Premier Aleksei Kosygin in Hollybush, the original home of the Whitney family built in the 1850s that became the original teachers’ school. The University was chosen because of its strategic location midway between Washington, D.C., and the United Nations in New York City, where Kosygin was scheduled to speak. The meetings between the two leaders, held June 23-25, 1967 presaged a thaw in the Cold War and eased world tensions.
Universities, colleges, academies, places of learning, creation, healing and the arts seem to thrive on leys – Earth energies that manifest as Yin feminine energy.
So what has all this got to do with my parking the car in slot number three at Pemberton Community College?
Well, when I conducted my general studies of American universities and leys, by chance I discovered a ley in Juliustown Park. We were sitting in the pavillion and I felt I just had to ask if there were any leys or geospirals in the area. The rods did a quick yes to both questions. We were actually sitting on a ley.
Back home on my laptop with Google Earth we discovered the Juliustown ley runs across country and passes through the Monastery of St. Clare in Chesterfield, New Jersey. In the other direction? It heads across the fields and byways to Burlington County College at Pemberton and yes, slot number four.
I firmly believe that if you pursue an energy long enough one’s higher consciousness becomes attuned to it and wherever you go, you will find yourself consciously or unconsciously walking, living or resting on leys – or Old Tracks as the ancients called them.
Before we leave Pemberton Community College, there are three ley lines criss- crossing the campus. This could account for why many students and visitors enjoy being there. There are also various geospirals radiating positive Yin energy. This could well account for many students and visitors enjoying the rural oasis of learning. It is a special place.
It was this energy that must have played a key role in attracting an enrolment of 9,570 in the 2013-14 year. According to US News and World Report 4,910 were full time and 4,460 were part time.
A couple of years ago Rowan U., acquired the 225 acre facility along with other Burlington County Community Campuses. The Board in its commercial wisdom, according to its webpage, decided to expand the Mount Laurel campus because of its physical convenience (populations, highways and buses).
The problem is the Mount Laurel campus undergoing a major re-development program is devoid of earth energies such as leys. Consequently Rowan U., is currently looking to shed the old Pemberton College.
One can only hope Rowan regresses on its decision. Alternatively, if the institute is sold, one can only hope the new owners recognize the great energy potential of the old College which has stood and served for forty years and could serve for many generations to come.
NOTE: In our “Explore Your Dowsing World” workshop on September 24th we shall be working on one of the Pemberton College leys as it runs through Juliustown Park, Juliustown, NJ.
That is our Newsletter for now. If you have any questions and/or suggestions, please get in touch. Betty Lou and I love to hear from you. Blessings. Robert.
