Paranormal Investigating and Dowsing
With the increasing number of paranormal investigation teams cropping up around the world, as well as increased interest in the age-old art of dowsing, we have been asked to create a chart to assist with paranormal investigating. Eighty percent of reported paranormal events can easily be contributed to other natural factors, but the twenty percent of legitimate claims require immaculate documentation.
While we realize that paranormal investigators place high standards on the quality of evidence they gather in order to prove the existence (or non-existence) of paranormal activity or entities (or lack of) in a given location, there are also those who seek to substantiate evidence with dowsed information. From a dowsing standpoint, we who both dowse and perform paranormal investigations have found that the use of dowsing can save time and verify information received through scientific means and vice-versa.
This article is presented to you as a way to utilize the skill of dowsing in order to help make your investigations move more quickly by locating potential paranormal activity in a given location, and as a means of communication or to back up EVP (electronic voice phenomena) evidence where the words are slightly to non-intelligible.
The closest thing to dowsing that we have seen used during investigations is the K-II meter, which is a small, hand-held electronic device that alerts the user to abnormally high electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs). It is believed by many investigators that the presence of unidentifiable EMFs (EMFs that are present without an identifiable source, such as house wiring or breaker boxes) can signify paranormal possibilities. The K-II has been used as a source of communication, using Yes/No question and answer sessions; the meter lights up to signify a presumed positive response to a question. Dowsing is, quite simply put, another means to identify these fields without the use of an electronic device. It is our suggestion that until the community at large becomes more comfortable with the use of dowsing as a trusted information-gathering tool, that it be used in conjunction with scientific equipment. The benefits are two-fold: 1) There are two sources with which to identify possible paranormal events; and 2) Dowsing can be authenticated with the co-use of a scientific monitoring unit, such as an EMF reader, K-II, or digital infrared thermometer.
Below is a list of some of the time-saving information that can be obtained by dowsing, which can be substantiated by the use of equipment:
A chart has been designed to be used as a tool to help identify possible areas of concern, and is meant to be used in conjunction with scientific equipment. Our goal here at Mirrorwaters.com is to both document paranormal activity in a location, as well as bring credence to the fact that dowsing can also be used and considered a scientific means of evidence gathering.
