The Divining Hand: The 500 year-old Mystery of Dowsing – Christopher Bird 2000

Amazon Synopsis: "To dowse," says the author of this definitive study of the divining art, "is to search with the aid of a handheld instrument such as a forked stick or a pendular bob on the end of a string - for anything: subterranean water flowing in a narrow underground fissure, a pool of oil or a vein of mineral ore, a buried sewer pipe or electrical cable, an airplane downed in a mountain wilderness, a disabled ship helplessly adrift in a gale, a lost wallet or dog, a missing person, perhaps a buried treasure." Co-author of The Secret Life of Plants, Christopher Bird has filled this book with exciting, documented stories, most of them illustrated with photographs and diagrams. It provides a complete history of the art of dowsing around the world and discusses in detail the various existing theories attempting to explain this extraordinary phenomenon.


The Divining Heart: Dowsing and Spiritual Unfoldment - Patricia C. Wright & Richard D. Wright 1994

Amazon Synopsis: Building on the principles and practices presented in The Divining Mind (Richard Wright's first book on dowsing, coauthored by T. Edward Ross II), authors Richard and Pat Wright define dowsing as the "process of uncovering information through the medium of the self." The Wrights believe, as do many dowsers, that the ability to dowse is innate, but they also feel that its proper development is contingent upon the parallel unfoldment of the spiritual qualities in our nature. Through this process, the dowser becomes increasingly cognizant of the interconnectedness of all aspects of life and begins to play his or her part as an agent of healing and positive change.

Includes detailed information on:

  • Responsibility in dowsing
  • Practical dowsing
  • Earth energies
  • Planetary stewardship
  • Healing and prayer
  • The supersensory worlds

An indispensable guide for the advanced dowser as well as a beginner's sourcebook.

When you can read your children's faces, you can discover their true nature. You can understand what their special gifts are, see where their personal challenges will be, and how to guide them through these issues. You’ll be able to recognize what they need from you in order to feel safe and loved, and you’ll be empowered as a parent to raise them with less stress, more joy, and the confidence that you're helping them fulfill their special purpose in the world!

Based on the same ancient foundation as acupuncture and Chinese medicine, face reading has been in the “research and development” phase for over 3,000 years.
