Great to see mention of T.C. Lethbridge here. Just wish publishers would catch up and publish new editions of his works.
Based on spontaneous personal experience, I developed an interest in precognitive dreams and dowsing at around the same time, and T.C. provided very
plausible explanation for both.
Anyone who's experienced an unambiguous precognitive dream will be aware of its profundity. Nothing's ever the same afterwards because you now KNOW
that it has all been decided, down to the finest detail, before it happens. After a precognitive dream, you KNOW that all our worries, plans,
schemes, 'luck', efforts, etc. are pointless. We aren't making decisions: we just think we are. We don't control a thing: we just think we
Via means of pendulum experimentation, Lethbridge speculated that time and events follow a spiral path in order to reach us. Some (perhaps all) of
us, tap-into events before they happen here in our dimension/world/reality: hence, precognitive dreams. Seen in this way, there's nothing occult
about knowing the 'future' before it happens.
The Future, the Past, the Present: are they separate or simply points on a spiral or coil? It appears the latter may be correct, with dowsing the
equivalent of the Time Traveller's destination-determiner or time-table.
Lethbridge was able to determine if a common rock had been tossed in anger or not and if the tosser had been male or female and in what era. Not bad
for a weight dangling from a bit of thread. Lethbridge was also able to locate ancient buried buildings, using a simple pendulum. His discoveries
were later confirmed via archeaological digs.
Lethbridge came to believe that spirits/ghosts were often located in swampy, watery locations. He discovered the pendulum-rate for death and -- of
interest to all of us, surely -- he discovered that after 'death', everything began all over again, leading to a second 'death' band, followed by
further life, and so on. He said he could have gone on endlessly charting the life/death cycles, but in order to do so, he would have been required
to stand on increasingly taller ladders to accomodate the lengthening pendulum-string needed to chart the chain of life/death patterns. So we live,
then we die, then we live, then we die, and live and die .... on and on; just as many ancient and current religions have always claimed.
It was Lethbridge who speculated (again based in his pendulum-experiments) that Heaven " is about the height of an average ceiling, and slightly to
the left ". I love it. And it was Myers (of the Cross Correspondence, communication after death fame) who advised the incredibly gifted Mathew
Manning that if we knew what followed after death, we simply wouldn't believe it. It all sounds fascinating and death might even make us chuckle,
when we find out for ourselves.
There are many excellent practical guides to dowsing, but those curious about it should do themselves a favour by reading Tom Lethbridge's slim but
As to dowsing itself: yes, it works, sometimes incredibly swiftly even for the total novice. BUT -- as a poster in these forums said several weeks
ago (and again I thank them for the caution) --- please remember to ask for protection and guidance before you start. Otherwise, YOU may become the
plaything on the end of the string !
