Well, if anything mentioned above applies to you, probably you are…
For my part, I’m not one of those “mancers”, but at least I can do some dowsing, with a dowsing rod. Holding in such a device, I can feel the pull of something, is it water?
I’ve never dared to check it out… maybe it’s my darker self, buried down there, trying to grasp me, drag me down to where I “belong”…
Yes, the pull can indeed be very strong. And it is kind of fantastic.
I learned this from an old man in the 1970:s (I was 11 years old), in the north of Sweden. This man was a well-known dowser, and he was called for by my father, just to dowse for water. We needed a fresh water tap.
I was curious and tried it, nothing at all happened. Then the man came with me and he held my wrists while I was going with the rod – and then I immediately felt the pull! It was an extraordinary feeling! And, best of all, after that I could do it myself, without his assistance! The rod signaled at the exact same spots as for the “famous dowser”! For a kid like me, this was really something back then. Today, this is very common I think.
And today, I can hold the wrists of others and they feel the pull, too. However, I have not practiced it so much since I moved from the countryside, to Gothenburg. This is almost a forgotten talent of mine. I am not sure if it does matter how skeptical the “client” is. I don’t know if it takes some “openness” or something, to be able to feel the pull. Probably it does. But I think it’s the same with everything. Dowsing is in fact a practice considered “supernatural”. I know it’s not supernatural, it’s all about energy. We need a new look upon energy, and as a matter of fact, present science doesn’t really know much about energy. The full implications of Albert Einstein’s famous formula E=mc2 have been badly suppressed for almost 80 years, and science has (roughly speaking) been split into two directions – the traditional (dominating) mainstream materialistic science that upholds the physics of Isaac Newton, and then the other branch that develops the so called “New Physics” (maybe this term is obsolete now), where we can find quantum physics, with its many “strange”, or even “ghostly”, phenomena.
Strangely, when looking upon science at this level, it becomes apparent that the mentioned openness is the factor that separates the camps. I mean “strangely” because science should really be Science – the EXACT knowledge about WHAT IS. There should not be such a question at all, since “openness” is really a subjective idea that should have nothing with REALITY to do. But it’s not that simple…
As a consequence, the materialistic camp accuses the other camp for being NON SCIENTIFIC. Not science. In other words: There is a large group within science, being “wrong”.

Think about that for a while. I did. And I see another consequence: After the beginning of this quarrel, science certainly is no longer the knowledge of WHAT IS.
How could it? How could something that claims to be the objective neutral look at reality be in conflict with something that is NOT? The objectiveness should span over both camps and never ever indulge in a conflict.
And at the same moment you say “this is the reality – that is not”, you have decided what is real, and must leave the objective look at the undefined and start to consider it “unreal”. Ordinary people can do this, and they do. But we are talking about scientists here.
How can reality contain non-reality?
Well, maybe these are both real? But there is only a lack of openness on the part of the beholder?
The materialistic scientist – who praises himself of being so neutral, so exact and so objective – has to exclude something from the reality he sees, and decide that it does not belong to reality.
Hence, superstition is an invention made by this man, and it follows that the “supernatural” is only a concept, created by people who have isolated themselves within a territory, which they claim to be the reality.
All this is deeply rooted in the ages-old conflict with religion. Science started from here once, merely as a protest against the religious cruelty, upheld by the mighty Roman Catholic Church. Back then, of course it was a perfect start for science, to expose the religious tyrants by proving them wrong. The natural way to act was to isolate from the subjective realm, based on beliefs, thoughts and feelings – all this considered “religious” – and do something completely different, and much distanced from this. So, the objective realm was invented. Invented, not discovered – for then of course the objective realm would have no subjective opposite but would include them both!
The objective realm (reality) is something that must be defended!
So, this kind of science is only a game. A business, something we can do, that works within certain limitations. It should not, ever, reach beyond its limitations. But it tries.
Through the centuries, science has been successful. But it is once and for all based on an assumption – the objective reality. An invention, created as a protest.
And there’s nothing wrong with that – worse things than that happen. However, we should have a look at the human nature. And the eternal quest for Truth.
The Scepter of Truth. Once held by the priests, now taken over, by whom?
You guessed right. The materialistic scientists, now exactly as prideful as ever the Catholic tyrants, are also misusing this Scepter, in order to reach power. Scientific materialism, in all its aggressive pomposity, claims to be the very Truth about everything! It tries to disprove God! Truth is used as a decoy, as an excuse and as a weapon, perfect to manipulate people with. And it’s all fueled by the lust for power and control. It turns out that not only is science on the way of revealing itself as just another religion, but that the whole drama is governed and orchestrated by the human ego.

Atheist or believer – seeing the world through the eye of the egoic mind, our motives become corrupted. We can no longer see the world this way, divided in good and bad parts, populated by good and bad people. It’s in our selves! To see WHAT IS, begin with a look at yourself! We are not isolated from the reality. We ARE the reality.

Contemplating all this, it seems like a potential idea that the “opposite of openness” – a “closedness” – should be the preferable attitude for a scientist. And this is indeed a common mindset. A resistance, a skepticism, purposely motivated by the thought that what could ever survive in spite of that, would be a strong candidate for the “TRUE”-label.
This is of course a sound disposition. A healthy skepticism has often helped. The danger is, however, that you miss something, especially if that attitude is driven to an extreme.  And even more, of course, if you’re a scientist, claiming to see WHAT IS.

The universe is probably too complex to be fully understood. Someone has called it an “experience machine”. And I would not generally say the universe gives us what experience we want – that would be a ridiculous statement – but more like that it gives us what we tune ourselves in to, using the analogy of a frequency-button on a radio. And indeed, I suspect it is about frequency! According to Einstein’s formula, everything is energy, and everything vibrates at certain frequencies. Our thoughts and our feelings also have their frequency ranges – anger for example, having a lower frequency than the feeling of love. Lower frequencies make the world experience denser, heavier. Higher make it more spacious and lighter. And the more conscious we become, the higher the frequency.
Energy – vibrating at certain frequencies – attracts similar energy. That’s a scientific fact that’s easy to prove. And life itself proves it to us. We talk about being “at the same wavelength” – actually it’s at a similar frequency range. A dark-minded man most likely attracts other dark-minded people.

And a  diviner is probably a person who is open, who is not closing him(her)self in, not isolating from anything. There is a pull, I promise you.
