Dowsing Fact Sheets
by Sig Lonegren
This combination dowsing tool was developed by Verne Cameron in California in the middle of the last century. It is essentially a spring loaded L rod, but it has many different uses and can act as a number of different dowsing tools.
As its name suggests, it was initially designed to look at human auras, and to find holes in them. (For example, we humans usually have a hole in the small of our backs.) This tool is not very good at looking for a specific point as in “Drill here,” but rather, it is excellent at defining outer perimeters of energy fields, or for following underground veins of primary water, or other less than straight energetic phenomena.
Hold the aura meter in you hand with the wire and tip out directly in front of you in what would be the L rod search position. If it droops downward, you’re holding it up-side-down. Turn it the other way up. The tip should be sticking up in the air, but not so up that it doesn’t ride easily in this search position. Do not touch the wire exiting from the handle with your forefinger. Be careful not to twist your wrist. If you do that, it will turn, but you’re just cheating yourself.
Don’t be timid with this tool! When looking for a vein, for example,
walk forward purposely, expecting the tip to be pushed off to one side
or the other when you hit the edge of the vein.
For map dowsing, bend the tip down – like a sniffing dog –
and it will lead you just as if you were on site.
When seeking direction of flow, stand on the vein, and holding it in
the search position, turn around in a circle. Ask, “Which way
is down stream?” Just as when you do this with a single L rod,
the tip of the rod will “stick” in the downstream direction.
As you continue to turn, it will stay pointing downstream.
Aurameter, unlike any other dowsing tool that I am familiar with, can
do two dowsing operations at once. While following a vein, for example,
you can ask a question like, “Is this vein more that twenty feet
down?” The tip will still follow the vein, but, like a wand or
bobber, it will bob up and down for “Yes” or go side-to-side
for “No.” This is the only dowsing tool I know of that can
do this. So it can follow something (by pushing against it and moving
forward), but at the same time, you can be asking yes or no questions
about the thing you are following, or something else, by using the tip
as a bobber or wand.
In closing, I need to say that this tool is rather expensive, and most dowsers do not need one. However, if you frequently need to follow things – like veins of water or other energies, it is much less stressful on your arms and wrists than other tools. Also, it is the best there is for helping others to see the curving energies that you are finding.
And, of course, it is great for looking at auras!
You can purchase a Cameron Aurameter (currently on special offer to
BSD members) at the Tools Section of BSD Supply. It is my favourite
tool for work in the field when exploring sacred space, and judging
by the "Which dowsing tool is most commonly used" poll in
the BSD Forum, a growing number of other BSD members would agree.
