Dowsing or Rasiesthesia or Rhabdomancy is a type of divination in which a hazel rod/steel/copper L shaped rod is used to trace the presence of minerals or metals underground. It is reported to date back approximately 7000 years but origins are still unknown. It is accepted, however, that the Egyptians used images of forked rods in some of their artwork as did the Ancient Chinese kings. In Europe, it was known for dowsing to be used in the Middle Ages to find coal deposits. Since this time people have dowsed for everything from identifying life forces in plants and trees, lost objects to missing people, some of them are reported to be very accurate although the scientific community as a whole have yet to decide if they support or refute this ability. Dowsing is searching for anything by projecting an intent of what is desired and receiving confirmation or non-confirmationfeedback through the body, usually by the movements of a dowsing instrument.
