Dowsing or Water Dowsing Exposed


“Dowsing is a practice employing divinatory implements and methods in order to search out information, such as lost objects, a site of water or oil, treasure, the nature, or location of disease, or missing persons. From ancient times, dowsing has been considered an occult practice and often defined as a form of witchcraft. The common descriptive terms “witching” and “water witching” reveal how closely the taint of witchcraft has remained. Instruments used are tree or shrub branches, pencils, welding rods, feathers, etc. The common explanation for how it works is that the dowser possesses a natural sensitivity to earth magnetism, water “radiations”, or some other geophysical phenomena. What is the true source of the dowser’s power? Most dowsers are unconcerned about this, they only care that their practice “works.” Most dowsers enter an altered state of consciousness or a trance when dowsing. As dowsers progress in the practice, many of them discover that they gradually develop psychic abilities, such as telepathy and clairvoyance. The fact that dowsing can develop psychic abilities associates dowsing with the world of the occult and spiritism, not science. Many indications exist that a personal entity operates through the dowsing implement. The dowser must ask specific questions about his rod or pendulum,  which strikes similarity to Ouija boards or the “Charlie-Charlie” game. The fact that conversion to Christ or prayer may hinder dowsing powers is more evidence the enemy is the power behind it. Moreover, Hosea 4:12 and Deuteronomy 18:9-12 condemns the practice.”

Scriptures that condemn such practice:

My people consult their wooden idol, and their diviner’s wand informs them; For a spirit of harlotry has led them astray, And they have played the harlot, departing from their God.” Hosea 4:12

9 “When you enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you.” Deut. 18:9-12

Here is a testimony of the dangers of “ghost hunting” involving dowsing:

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.

If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):

“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins, just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
