Past events, reports and stories

In this section you can read the introductions to the latest dowsing reports of past events as well as other adventures & stories related to shamanic dowsing. Although not widely accepted as 'scientific proof', dowsing can be a helpful tool to the study into consciousness. To show, by means of dowsing, how everything is related to each other through vibration - and to work intentionally with the consciousness of the physical world (and beyond) - may offer a beautiful glimpse into what has been widely forgotten; that everything is part of the whole in relation to us. I hope that the Shamanic Dowsing in service to the evolution of consciousness may begin to seed and cultivate the thought that we need to incorporate earth and all its life into our circle of interaction. Everything has a seat at the table of Life. Viewed in that way, the use of dowsing evolves on par with becoming more conscious.

1700 year old Yew Tree Blessings

A heart blown wide open

It was a sunny morning when I arrived at St. Andrews Church in Dundon, Somerset. The Yew Tree that I felt inspired to visit filled the whole sky and obscured the view on the church itself. Its majesty could be felt even while still being parked in front of the church.I just couldn't wait to get out and meet this ancient tree being. Yet first, I wanted to check whether the two earth energy lines that I had stumbled across on top of Dundon hill the previous day, were also present here. The church is directly downhill so it wouldn't suprise me if they ran here as well. And, oh delight, they did! A rush of enthusiasm opened up my own energy field when I detected the first line, 21 paces wide, running East-West (ish) and including the Yew Tree. Funnily enough, the centre of the line was exactly in the centre of a strange, seemingly out of place, bush that was trimmed to be an arch way for Hobbit sized people. Exploring the area for clues or signs, one grave on the edge of that earth energy line caught my eye: it was a beautifully carved wooden cross with a dove on one of the crosses' arms.

The rod turned after the arch way and ended 21 paces further at the side door of the back of the church. The line, as I would find later, was including the Altar inside the church! With one line going through the Yew tree and the other through the Altar, they met at the green field with graves, just in front of the Yew tree. It is not unusal to find an energy line crossing just beside a sacred site, such as a church, rather than slap-bang on it. Maybe the crossing of lines is the third component, the golden child, created by a meeting of nature- and human consciousness? Just a thought.

I paused and meditated on the exact centre where the lines met. A strong energy streamed through my body. Much more powerful than any spot I'd met so far, except maybe from the White Lady Waterfall in Lydford, Devon. The strength was almost too much for the crown and third eye chakra; I started to feel light-headed, slightly dreamy, almost into a trance. In an aware attempt to pull out from being swept away by this energy, I focused on the surrounding and when I looked down at the grass, one single green leaf in the shape of a heart smiled back at me. I LOVE these little magic tell-tale signs. Nature communicates and inspires in her own beautiful way. I thanked her silently for the joy of finding that green heart and went over to the majestic tree.

I wasn't prepared for its incredibly powerful energy! After admiring, with my eyes and heart, its branches, trunk and crevices, leaf and roots, thoroughly, I asked to sit underneath it in friendship and if it would be okay to connect hearts. Immediately, a gush of energy blew my heart wide open. Wow. I did not expect that reaction from the tree. It was so incredibly strong that the thought of not being able to hold that kind of energy pulled me out of the experience. But tuning back in, and deliberately surrendering my Self to its energy, allowing it to stretch mine to the maximum was a most loving experience. Five minutes was all I could internalise of its supreme heart energy but it was enough to feel my heart being wide open for the remainder of the day. Dowsing for the tree's aura/energy field gave the following results: in neutral state its reach is 90 meter in diameter. After 5 minutes of exchanging heart energy its aura expanded times 6 to 540 meters diameter! My own energy field before the meeting with the ancient Yew: 9 meter diameter, after heart energy exchange: 60 meter in diameter. It felt like walking on clouds when I finally left the Yew, reluctantly I must say, and entered the church for a final exploration and then discovered that the altar was on one of the earth energy lines oriented North-South (ish).

Gratitude for this beautiful moment of friendship & love between nature and human.
