What is Water Divination?

Most people have heard of using dowsing rods to find water. No one can explain why it works, but it does. Water seems to be a catalyst to spirit manifestation, as well. When my investigation team goes to an investigation, we often get more evidence if it is raining, if there is an electrical storm or if there is water near the location. (Our investigation of the Gettysburg battlefield and of Pinky’s Bar is a prime example of that.) But, did you know that water can also be used to predict the future or to help with solving a problem?

The term “Divination” was coined from the Latin, “divinare,” which means to foresee-- related to the divine. Water Divination is a process of predicting the future or of providing insight into a current problem, using patterns in a container of water. In many African societies divination is used in traditional tribal medicine as a diagnosis tool and is a part of their religious practices.

Other cultures have used this method as a tool for dream interpretation. Dreams play an important role in many religious and traditional societies. Civilizations that do not have access to books might use a tribal water divination master to tell them the significance of what their dreams have on their waking life.

In actuality, the container of water is a reflective tool a person with psychic abilities uses to tap into the “Universal Knowledge,” just as a crystal ball might be. It acts like a meditative trigger to go into a semi-trance state in order to access information not readily available to the conscious mind.

The scientific community has never classified water divination a proven technique, but it wouldn’t be the first paranormal practice that hasn’t been accepted by science. If it works for you and for the people who believe in it, that is all that really matters.

      Very interesting hub. I had no idea that some African societies used water in tribal medicine. Nice work. :)

      Interesting topic. Didn't Nostradamus use a bowl of water during his prophecies?
