We Couldn't Say It Better Ourselves!

A review by GradyShark from Houston, Texas who was recently on the Haunted Hannibal Ghost Tour:

"The tour guide took us around Hannibal and told us some fascinating real life stories and reported ghost encounters, while teaching us a great deal about the history of the town. The highlight of the tour was visiting the graveyard. My younger cousins, who tagged along, enjoyed "talking" to spirits using dowsing rods. You don't have to believe in ghosts or the paranormal to have fun on this tour." Visited July 2016

Fun with Dowsing Rods

And now, a word about Dowsing Rods...we use these "low tech" devices on our haunted tours to detect energy while at the cemetery, and guests are always amazed at how responsive they seem to be!

Dowsing rods have been used for hundreds of years to detect water and minerals underground. These resources have an electromagnetic pull that causes the dowsing rods to move toward them, much like a compass. Ghost hunters and paranormal investigators believe that spirits or energies are also electromagnetic (we humans also have an electromagnetic "pull"). So, if energy is present, the rods will move toward the "pull".

Some paranormal investigators have developed their skill to the point of using dowsing rods to actually converse with spirits. If you think you sense a presence near you, begin to ask yes or no questions, and tell the presence to cross the rods for "no" or open the rods for "yes". If you concentrate, and are very still, the rods will be a tool for the presence to use to answer your questions. Always be very respectful (don't try to "fool" the ghost -- these were once real people, you know!). You might be surprised by the responses you receive!

The dowsing rods we use on our tours are custom made by paranormal investigators located in Florida, and each pair of rods is tested for balance and sensitivity. The beaded handles provide comfort and allow the rods to move freely without being encumbered by your hands. Our rods are made of brass which is highly sensitive to electromagnetic pulls and we have found the design of these dowsing rods to be ideal when attempting to detect paranormal energies.

The proper way to hold dowsing rods is to hold them gently in your hands by the beaded handle, with arms slightly bent and your elbows by your side. Relax your shoulders. Never clench the handles; the rods should move freely without restriction.

For practice, have a friend hide a bottle of water on the ground and use the rods to search for it. Pay attention to the rods when you approach the water. Your dowsing rods can direct you to the location by pointing you in the direction you need to go.

Rods are not used for seances or fortune telling, but simply to sense paranormal energy and simple questions to confirm the entity's presence. With patience, practice, and a serious respect for the energies you are trying to engage, you too can do your own paranormal investigations and reach beyond the thin veil that separates the living and the dead!
