Continuation of 'Ideas of How Dowsing Works'----

A. Energy Radiating Component (revisited): This next test involves a bit more equipment to perform.  This test is to determine how high the target can be positioned in relation to one's eyes.
(Not that you possibly will dowse a target located above your head.......but this is an interesting test.)

Equipment needed: either two floor light stands, or two step ladders or a couple of upright posts to string the target wire between, and up to a height of just above your head.

First, lay the target wire on the floor or ground between the two uprights and dowse the target.
My results: both rods move.
Note: Person #1 & #2 not tested)

Next, raise the target wire to just below the height of your waist.....attach the wire to the posts with tape.  Dowse up to and lean over the wire with your head/eyes and your hands holding the rods.
My results: both rods move.
Note: Person #1 & #2 not tested)

Now raise the target wire to just above the height of you head and attach with tape.  Dowse under the wires.
My result: no rod movement.
Note: Person #1 & #2 not tested)

Based on this test, it appears to me that the detectable radiating energy from the wire appears to be primarily directed upward and that the eyes need to be above the target to detect such energy.  However, I have detected 'energized' electrical wiring in the ceilings of my home by holding my L-rods over my head......but, it was difficult to maintain the rods in a steady dowsing position at this height.

This following test is to demonstrate that the energy radiating from an object can penetrate most solid objects but appears to be reflected by a mirror.

Materials needed for this test includes a 2 - 3 ft. wide by about 5 ft. long, 1/2 thick composition boards (approximate size and could be plywood, other), a full-length mirror and a drop cloth or old blanket.  (The blanket is primarily used to pad the glass mirror and keep it from breaking........other than for this protection reason, the blanket is not essential to this test.)
One board will remain plain (without attachments) while the other board will have a body length mirror attached to one side. (Note: I have used a sheet of wide tinfoil and achieved the same test results.)

Lay a blanket or drop cloth over the target wire.  Lay the plain board over the blanket covering the target area.  Walk over the board covering the target and dowse normally with two rods.
My results: both rods move normally.
Person #1: same as above.
Person #2: same as above.

Next, keep the cloth over the target area and lay the board with the mirror attached (or tinfoil) face down (mirror down) over the target.  Walk over the board with your pathway centered on the area of the mirror and with the mirror facing down to the target, dowsing normally with two rods.
My results: no rod movement.
Person #1: same as above.
Person #2: rods moved normally.

It appears that the energy radiating from the target can penetrate solids such as wood while the glass mirror (or tinfoil) interferes with signal passage and reflects the radiation.

Another test involves using the board with the mirror attached.  With a couple of sticks, prop the mirror board at an angle (45 to 60 degrees) over the target wire.  No cloth is necessary to cover the target in this test.

Make a dowsing approach to the angled mirror board from a distance of 12 to 15 feet.  You should see the reflected image of the target wire as you approach.  Continue to dowse up to the angled mirror board.
My results:  I had rod movement at a distance of 3 to 5 feet based upon seeing the reflected image of the target (and based on the angle of the mirror board)---and the rods rotated in the opposite direction (than normal)....I did not walk directly over the target and it appeared that I was dowsing the reflected image.

Conclusion:  The radiating energy from an object appears to be reflected by a mirror, and the rod movement is opposite of normal in a reflected image.
