Marty Cain: Hi! I'm Marty Cain from the American Society of Dowsers and we're demonstrating some of the basic tools of dowsing and how to make them and how to use them We're about to start with a bobber. Now this is a bobber and it's called the bobber, because obviously it bobs up and down. Now I'm going to show you how to make one, real easy. This is a little more complicated with springs and makes a bob real easy. But if you go into the woods and you find a branch that has a thick end and a thin end, you simply cut it off and use your handy clippers again and you cut down to where you get a nice, clean simple end to it.
And obviously the heavy end is heavier and it will bob. So as I'm holding it, it's going around in a circle and this is my search position, it's waiting for me to ask a question. And so I'm going to ask please show me my yes response, and it's simply goes to an up and down for my yes response and back to my search which is clockwise, and then no response is like shaking my hand and no. And again similar to the bobber, you will have whatever response you have, and it doesn't matter what it is. As long as you know what it is, and you keep it whether you use a fancy tool that you purchase or a simply cutting a twig from the woods. This is a dead branch that I picked up, but it's still a bit flexible. So I'm going to see that if that will work. Yeah, that's working so there is my yes response and my no response and again the search response. Now you can do it with one hand or two; I like to use two often. Now this tool is not used as often. I haven't seen it used a lot, but there is the fellow name Raymon Grace who uses this tool, actually it raise the energy in a room. So he will ask the dowsing system is what he calls it, to bring the life force or the energy up in a room to as high as it's comfortable and then he will just let it swing round and round and round and around and when it stops swinging, then you knows this brought up to that level of comfort.
It's quite interesting. It actually uses it to purify water as well. But these are out on the skinny branches of how you can dowsing. Again, this is the bobber very, very simple tool. Now the bobber like all of the tools, they're simply tools. The tool does not do the work, it simply indicates what you're getting. Just like my pen. The pen doesn't do the writing, I do the writing. And again if ever you ask a question or if you're looking for something and you can't seem to find it, it's almost 90% of the problem is in the question that you ask. So one thing you learn in dowsing is how to ask exactly what you want. No going around hinting at what you want, you've got to ask exactly, precisely what you want. And the interpretation that you make from the answers you get, will be dependent on what you thought you're asked. So you need to really be careful. In the beginning it's very, very smart to write out your question and write out the answer that you got. So that you can go back and double check to see, what might be so and what might be wrong.
If I'm asking about a future event, note that the world is about change. Everything is always changing. So if I get a response about a future question, then what will happened is that; that's how would be if everything stayed the same until that moment in time. But as things, change you want to check closer and closer to to time. And asking specific questions, if I ask something like, is it going to rain today? I'm going to get a yes, because somewhere in the universe it's raining and I didn't ask, if I was going to be in a rainstorm today? It says no to that. So you need to be very, very precise in the question you ask.
But here we have the bobber, and a simple version of the bobber. Also if you're fishing, another good use of a bobber is using your fishing pole with the reel being the derated end and you can kind of point and say where do I cast this line to catch the next biggest fish. And it'll point and if you get a yes response, you simply cast a line in that direction. So now you know a bit about a bobber. Next we will talk about taking these tools into the field and showing you how to use them as we're actually looking for a source of water.
