The /Xam, a now-extinct southern San group, told of 'strings that vibrate' that filled their landscape. These were 'thinking strings', a term used by /Xam informants to describe being part of the landscape or physical environment. The /Xam told of the ringing of these strings in the sky, enabling the shaman, the ritual specialist to communicate. The significance of water and the choice of rock art imagery depicting these elements suggest a spiritual link to the landscape and the locations of particular rock art sites. This link to landscape is an essential feature of myth and ritual. The endurance of the watermeid legend suggests that the thinking strings are still 'alive' and conveys the significance of the places where the water maidens are 'seen' today.
Dowsing is about harnessing and amplifying natural innate senses and abilities, combined with electro-magnetic sensitivity. These are our instinctive, survival senses that we, and other animals, are using when seeking direction, food and each other. Senses which make us vulnerable to the bombardment of EMFs – tv and radio waves, phones, wifi, radiation from power lines and household appliances etc.
Dowsing-friendly scientists dub the art the bio-resonance method, because our inbuilt magnetic receptors resonate with energies that we dowse. Energy levels can be monitored by dowsing and this can help us to detect problem areas both in the energy body of the Earth and in ourselves.
