Post Experiment anyone?
Hi everyone, I just started dowsing and I'm under the same constraints as many people here, I'm alone during practice but I've found an interesting pattern. Some additional work is needed and perhaps others here would be willing to share results.

I've notice an increase in accuracy based on "current" vs "future" tense.

I want to share the results first then explain how it is done.

So for Future tense I managed the following.

Future Tense
Attempt Results
1 40.0%
2 40.0%
3 40.0%
4 20.0%
5 80.0%
6 20.0%
7 60.0%
8 80.0%
9 60.0%
10 40.0%
Average 48.0%

These aren't that bad for someone like me :)

Now present/current tense I did much better.

Present
Attempt Results
1 60.0%
2 80.0%
3 100.0%
4 40.0%
5 40.0%
6 60.0%
7 20.0%
8 40.0%
9 60.0%
10 60.0%
Average 56.0%


That's 8% more accurate than future tense! :D To me that is a fairly large difference. These experiments were done over a period of about 6 days alternating between the two experiments until I had 10 session per experiment. :shock:

The experiment is simple and goes like this.

You'll need 5 coins, same value, I used nickels because I had a roll of them here. You need different dates on each coin so you can keep track of the coins.

You need to dowse against each coin, same question for each coin. In future tense you dowse first then throw your coins.

Note: In the case of future tense you can toss them on the floor beside you.

Note: In the case of present tense you need to toss the coins behind you and dowse after they've settled. In my case I kept my eyes closed and used ear plugs before I tossed them, I didn't want any outside influence or "AOL" from what I heard, ha, you probably don't need to do this but I wanted to control the environment as much as possible.

This took me a litte while to complete but if you run the numbers side by side you'll notice that for the most part I did well. I will repeat this experiment in the future after I've given dowsing more practice with other "targets".

If anyone has some time perhaps you could repeat this experiment in your own style and compare how you did Future vs Present? 8)

Hi James,

When you're dowsing the nickles, are you dowsing for heads or tails? And
would the data look something like this ? ...

Code:
Date      Dowse     Feedback
====      =====     ======
1852      heads     heads
1933      tails     heads
1946      tails     tails
1948      heads     heads
1955      heads     tails
... etc.

I always dowse for heads. Yes or No.

Your data chart is similar to mine, except since I always dowse for heads it's either right or wrong.

However, I don't see anything wrong with how you did it. I suppose the experiment was to get others to dowse Now and Future conditions to see if there is a trend. It would really require many trials among many people, but, you never know.. maybe over time (here) people will post their results.

I've been including the time (and method) of my dowsing when I post my
projects. (I've been short of time lately, so I've been neglecting to compile
the results of my lottery projects.) Possibly, this might only be anecdotal
evidence but it feels to me that I do better when I dowse just before the
event. (Say, just a few minutes before rather than hours before.)

Quote:
I always dowse for heads. Yes or No.

That would probably work better for me, too. When I was practicing with
color of playing cards, I'd lose my focus in going from red to black and back
again when I asked "is it red or black?" I seemed to do better on, say, "Is it
black, yes or no?" (Just stick to the presence or absence of one color.)

What surprised me is that some sessions, I'd do better with black, and other
sessions with red. (If the feedback for most of the deck of cards was the
exact opposite of what I dowsed I knew I had to switch from dowsing for,
say, "black, yes or no?" to "red, yes or no?") My guess is that problem was
occurring because I hadn't settled on one style and practice. I was
experimenting with pendulums versus L-rods and with right hand versus left hand.

See, that is a particular interesting point. If you compiled your data then ran successive tests against "is it black?" and used your own intuition without the pendulum, what do you think your score would be? ie First thing that comes to mind, no second guessing allowed.

I attempted this one, I was able to guess better than following what the pendulum signified (I'm a super green dowser mind you).

With yes or no, unless you're extremely accurate with a pendulum, it's difficult to measure your results initially. Keeping track of your success rate over time is very important in personal growth/study, especially with dowsing.

Hi James,

Here's a screenshot of my Red/Black data in 2009. These are all dowsing for
color of current top card. No future results.

Tracking the results seemed to help me get better. Given the current dismal
results of my projects, it looks like I need to keep doing this exercise. Thanks
for posting and jogging my memory.

P.S. Sorry for the big image stretched across the right border. If I reduce it's
size it's difficult to read.

Oh great, any chance I could get a copy of that spreadsheet? I'm curious.

You like?... :mrgreen: It's in Excel. I've been pondering learning Google Docs. I've seen other forums compile
and present group data that way through Google.

Google Docs works for me :)

Ok... my first attemp with posting a public Google spreadsheet... my data's still at top.
You can delete those rows... :mrgreen: in your copy.

See if you can save a copy to your gmail Google docs account. (Or, download a file.)

https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AsvZ1XvhKVpSdDlNQVMwWTVGaUxQRDZZdHk2VW9pUGc&hl=en&authkey=COmw1s0H

In this spreadsheet, only enter your dowsing results (of the face down cards). There's a
column at the right side that you can use for comments. (If you want to track type of tools,
or other things.)

Have fun! ... Oh, please please please let me know if you spot any problems? ... Thanks!
