Here in my hand I hold a tool so sensitive it can pick up vibrations of energy not seen or felt by the average person. This tool, usually made of bronze or brass and often with a copper sleeve around the part that is held in the hand, looks downright primitive when compared to the electronic equipment that exists today. Yet this tool is able to pick up energy and vibrations beyond what the average person can even comprehend.
It is only by holding and using this tool, and experiencing this rod’s reaction to the unseen wave of energy, that one comes to believe such a thing is possible. This little dowsing tool is known as the L-Rod. It gets its name from its shape. The short part of the L is held in your hand and the long part of the L is pointed out and thus able to swing freely.
When I first started dowsing and using the L-Rod, I was merely searching for water, but over the years I have discovered that there is much information to be obtained using this little rod.
I no longer use a metal coat-hanger cut and bent to fit the needed size. Bent coat-hangers are truly primitive tools and gives one the look of performing hocus-pocus. Skeptics scoff at the use of a coat-hanger, reasoning that the rod can easily be manipulated in someone’s hand. An L-Rod with a sleeve on it can swing freely without one touching the rod at all. This helps to achieve accurate dowsing. Plus, the skeptics find it a little easier to believe that the rod is not being manipulated when it isn’t touched directly.
As do many serious dowsers, I now have several sets of L-Rods—small, medium, and large—each made of bronze with a copper sleeve over the short end held in my hand. These copper sleeves offer less fuel for the skeptics!
Small L-Rods are easy to carry and fit in a purse; they are only 5 to 6 inches long. The medium size is about 10 inches in length and the large are approximately 13 to 15 inches. I like the longer rods for dowsing wells; I make them with a loop at the long end. This loop is then hooked onto a belt loop when I’m out in the field dowsing for water, leaving my hands free for using the Y-Rod. I use the small and medium size L-Rods for checking for layers of auras, chakras, negative/dark energy, and vortexes.
Television programs have now made popular the idea of finding ghosts or dark areas of negative energy in one’s home. These programs have shown the "ghost buster" using an L-Rod to detect this type of energy. In this book, we will cover finding and changing these energies as well as how to use the rods to find and indicate the depth of water veins.
