Marty Cain: Hi! I'm Marty Cain from the American Society of Dowsers. And we're demonstrating the basic tools of dowsing. And now we are taking you out into the field, and I want to talk a little about the first two levels of dowsing. One is on site, where you're actually over the target that you're after. And the other one is at a distance. And we'll start with at a distance because if I am asked to find the water well, a perfect place for the drill bit to go. Then the guy may have 200 acres and I'm not going to walk over every inch of it. So what I will do is, I will hold the rods and these are my L-rods. I put these down for a moment. I'll hold the L-rods and ask them to point in the direction I must go to find the most appropriate site for pure and portable water, that's willing to come to the surface. So there it goes, it's pointing in -- okay, which way do I go? It's pointing in that direction, so I would simply turn and walk in that direction. And we're working mostly with the L-rods, but I also want to mention the pendulum at the same time. This tool I use mostly indoors, but if I don't have my L-rods and I want to work outside then I can do the same thing basically. So I hold the pendulum in the search position, and I use my arm as a pointer and I ask to show me, which is giving me my yes response, when my hand is pointing in the direction I must go to find a perfect well site with pure and portable year round flow of water. And there it is, it's right in that direction. So I just got my yes response.
So I'm going to follow that direction with my L-rods and just walk forward. Now of course, if there is 200 acres, I want to know how far away it is. So I'll be asking questions like, is it close to where I am now? And if I got a yes, then I would keep going. If I got a no, I would ask something like, would I have to take a truck to get there? How many miles away is it? You can ask all kinds of questions like that. But in this demonstration, we're actually quite close to the source. So I'm just going to keep walking, and when we get to that source, I'm going to get my yes response on the rods. So here we are. There is my yes response. Now I want to know exactly where it is, I'll use my foot as a pointer. So I'll let my foot go forward and when it hits the edge of that stream, underground water stream, I'm going to get my yes response. The same would be true with the pendulum. If I find where I am, if I'm close to it, and I have got my search position. When my foot hits the edge, I get my yes response. So that's one way to use the tools.
Now when you're dowsing for water which is basically the most important thing in life, without water we cannot live. And there is very little pure and portable water on the planet these days. So I want to know a lot about this water vein. It's right here under my feet. What direction of flow is it coming? Where is it going? It's going in that direction, so that would be the flow. Is this the most perfect, most appropriate place for the well to be drilled? It says no, so in what direction must I go for the well to be drilled? So I go that way. Alright, so if I'm coming up against that line. I'm going to let my rod hook on to the edge of the water vein, and I'm going to follow it. If I go in too far, it points outward. If I come too far out, it points back in. So I'm just going to follow it along the vein until I come to the better and the most appropriate place for the drill to be placed; and it's right here. Okay, so it's right there, and I would mark that, and I would come from different directions to make sure that I have the right spot. Because I know up in New Hampshire and Vermont, the water veins are very narrow. And if you have a tiny little water vein, you don't want to miss it even with a few inches. So that would be the most perfect place for the drill bit to go .
Okay, now I'm going to ask this water, because I hold that everything is alive and intelligent. I'm going to ask this water vein, if it's willing to share part of it's flow with -- in a well and have it come to the surface. Are you willing to have that happen? I get a yes response. Now I'm using only one rod. But I know that my yes is open and my no is closed. So it doesn't matter what hand I hold it in, the yes will still be open. So it's saying to me, yes, it's willing to come to the surface. So next I want to know is how much water is there. And so I simply count. I want gallons per minute. Is there one gallon a minute? Yes. Two? Three? As much as ten? No, okay. Four? Five? Six? About a six gallons a minute. So now I know how much pure portable water is able to come to the surface in this spot from the stream.
The next question I want to know is how deep do I have to drill in order to get this water. And in terms of -- is this a very deep well? No, deep well would be anything over 200 feet, is that right? Okay. So it's less than 200 feet? Yes. Less than 100 feet? Yes. Less than 50 feet? No. So I know it's between 50 and 100 feet, so I'll start counting. Is it 60 feet? 70 feet? It's around 70 feet down from the surface. So now I know when I hire a driller, that if he goes beyond maybe 70 feet and another 10 or 15 feet for reservoir then I know he is going to far, and I got to have him stop. He's either missed it, or he is going too deep. So now I know, basically how much it's going to cost me, I know how much water I'm going to get, it's pure portable water. Yes, that means it's not polluted, it means it's sweet tasting. So this'll be a good water for a well. So that's how you use the L-rods and the same in terms of the pendulum. The same in terms of asking questions is the same thing. How deep do we have to drill to get to this water? And I'm asking that, and the pendulum again it's just another instrument, another tool. Is it 10, 20 feet, 30 feet, 40, 50, 60, 70? It goes to 70, and I get my yes. So it doesn't matter what tool you use. You're going to get the same answer to the same question about the same situation. So whatever tool you feel most comfortable with, that's the one you want to use. So now you know how to find water with an L-rod and the pendulum. In the next section, I'm going to show you is how to do the very same act with the Y-rod and the Bobber.
