Dowsing, also known as divining and often referred to as water witching or doodle-bugging, is a practice that originated centuries ago. In its simplest form, it involves holding a dowsing rod, such as a forked stick or two bent wires, over an area of land (or, in some cases, water) in order to locate an object or substance, such as water, gas or mineral deposits. Although the practice of dowsing is not well understood, it is believed to involve accessing a heightened state of consciousness to connect with intuitive, or psychic, information.
