1. 3 leaves

  2. 3 pieces 8.5"x11" white paper

  3. Camera

  4. Rubber gloves (to be used if you feel it necessary to touch a leaf during the experiment after you have charged it)

In order for scientists and laypersons to improve their understanding of subtle energies, we have designed a series of experiments. The first experiment offers a practical means to demonstrate energy transfer from the human body to other living forms, referred to as "energetic healing." In speaking of healing, one postulates that something moves from the healer to the healee. To show this in unequivocal terms, try the following experiment.

Choose a plant that has leaves that are rather thick and high in moisture content.  The following are recommended for use:

1) Geranium

2) Saxifragia

3) Comfrey

4) Ivy philodendron.



Use your fingers to pick three leaves from the same plant that are of equal dimension and age. Take three sheets of clean white typing paper and label one sheet "treated" another "untreated" and one "control." Place the control leaf on the control sheet and put it where it won't be disturbed, ideally in an unused room.

To treat the leaf, place it on the palm of the left hand with the stem facing to the rear of the hand. Place the right hand parallel above the leaf and slowly oscillate the hand up and down, moving from four to seven inches above the leaf, while at the same time slowly filling the lungs. Hold the breath and focus on the leaf. With the outgoing breath project the thought to the leaf of remaining whole, free from disease and continuing to live.

Continue this for two minutes, breathing in slowly and with the outgoing breath repeating the above thoughts. At the end of the second minute release the breath suddenly with the thought "LIVE." Carefully place this leaf onto the paper marked "treated." Photograph the three leaves, recording the time and date.

Be sure the leaves are undisturbed. Look in on them each day and project the thought of "living" to the one leaf, and "not living" to the second. The third remains untreated. At the end of each week photograph the three leaves, but do not touch them. Continue observing and photographing the leaves for at least one month and see what takes place.

This form of experimentation opens up a host of ideal variations:

  1. One can perform the experiment using a quartz crystal by transferring the thoughts via pulsed breath through the crystal to a leaf.

  2. One can observe the influence of pyramidal objects placed over and in the proximity of a leaf. 

  3. One can test the transducing properties of different gems, on maintaining the vitality of the leaf.

  4. One can test if drugs, vitamins, tissue salts, homeopathic or Bach Flower Remedies in proximity to the treated leaf have any effect.

Those with more sophisticated equipment may want to measure weight changes in the leaves and take photographs through a Wratten "A" filter using infrared film. If so, always use rubber gloves when handling the leaves after the initial preparation.

Another important bit of information is that in using infrared film through a Wratten "A" filter, one will observe that the treated leaf continues to reflect infrared radiation just the same as a living plant does, but the control leaf dies in a few days and no longer reflects infrared radiation. By the use of infrared photography, one can photograph the vital aspect of a living system, and when that life process is no longer actively functioning.







            Pre-made dowsing rods


            Build your own using:


  1. Wire coat hangers

  2. Wire cutters

  3. 2 stick pens (from which you remove the refills)


Dowsing rods detect the energetic forces that emanate from a human body or from inanimate objects. The rods are energized by the power of thought.

The most practical form of dowsing rod is a right angle wire.

Remove the hook portion of the hanger and cut the wire near one of the remaining angles. Bend the remaining wire so that it forms a right angle rather than an acute angle.

The handle portion and the longer sensor portion of the rod should be in a ratio of 3:1. The handle can be inserted into rigid tubing that allows the rods to rotate freely. Typgon, acrylic, or synthetic rubber tubes work well for handles. (One can also use the empty tube of a stick pen when the refill has been removed.)

Paint the tips of the sensing angle white.

Mentally clear the rods of any limiting or interfering influences. Do this by drawing the breath in with the thought of clearing the rods. Hold the breath for one or two seconds and release it in a pulsed burst.

Stand erect and hold the rods, one in each hand, at a comfortable level in front of the chest. The sensor portion of the rods should be parallel to the ground.

Watch the antics of the rods turning around. Mentally command the rods to be quiet and adjust them to a parallel position to each other. Be patient, let this happen, and then mentally command the rod in the right hand to turn to the right and stop. Then mentally direct the rod in the left hand to turn to the left and stop. Breathe in, and watch the rods come back to neutral (parallel). Let the breath out and watch the rods move outward. Repeat this often, observing that with each breath, movement of the rods takes place.

We have indicated that rod movements are controlled by intention (thought). The intention of one's mind, directed to the rods, will cause them to move as one breathes. To use these rods in detecting the energy fields of the body, one must first quiet the rods. Second, release the intention, mentally placing that intention at the tip of the dowsing rod. Draw in and hold your breath. Notice the movement of the rods.

Notice the movement of the rods as you to breathe normally.








Dowsing rods

Prepare to use the dowsing rods as described in experiment 2. It is important that you focus on the intention of measuring the auric field of a person. From 5-6 feet away, draw the breath in, focus on the target and then walk slowly toward the person, with rods at the horizontal position. It is important when using the rods to detect, that the breath be held in. The activity of breathing will interfere with the indications of the rods. At a distance of 1-3 feet, the rods should begin to deflect as you pass into that person's field. Moving forward again, from further back, you should be able to clearly delineate the energy fields that surround the person. Stand relaxed and alert to the deflective fields from the person you are measuring. As they breathe in and out, observe what takes place. The health, degree of balance, and general vitality of any living thing can be measured by this method.

A person's thoughts can be shown to deplete the energy of another individual. To do this, you focus your attention by staring intently at the individual while thinking something negative about them. That individual will be experiencing your thoughts on their physical body. Note the effect on your dowsing rods. When you are done, both you and the subject should pulse breath through their nostrils with the mouth closed to clear the energy fields created.







  1.  3 Styrofoam cups

  2. Dowsing rods

  3. Water

One can detect moving bodies of water and above all, water charged with the intention of an individual. Get three Styrofoam cups. Half fill them with water. Dowse the three cups with your dowsing rods to show their neutrality. One cup is to be a control. You do not treat it.

Hold the second cup in your hands. Focus intently on the cup, directing the mind to place thoughts of love, joy, and happiness into the water. Draw in a breath, holding the cup away from the body, and release the thoughts into the water. (Release the breath by expelling quickly through the nostrils.)

Now with the third cup, think unpleasant and disagreeable thoughts, directing those thoughts into the water using a pulsed breath.

Dowse each of the three cups. Do the dowsing rods directed at the positive cups move outward? Do the rods move inwards when directed at the negative cup? Is the control cup still neutral? Taste the water in each. Are there any differences? Note any differences and consider what we do to food that is eaten while we are in conflict or when angry.









  1. Dowsing rods

  2. 2 leaves from earlier experiment (#1)

In experiment 1, we kept a leaf alive as long as we were able. Experiment 5 uses both leaves from that earlier experiment.

Dowse the leaf that was filled with love and the thought that it continues to live. Check it against the leaf, which was rejected. Then dowse for the ebb and flow of vitality (energy) that is contained in both leaves. Test both leaves over time and note when energy no longer exists.








  1. Container of water

  2. Gauss meter or milligauss meter

  3. Dowsing rods

Hold a container of water in your hands and focus on it with your mind. Draw in your breath and then suddenly release it with the intention of charging the water. Measure this water with a gauss meter or with dowsing rods. What happens?

Next, draw in your breath, and then release it in a pulsing breath with the intention of removing the charge. Now what happens when you dowse the water?

This experiment can be repeated many times using the same water. There is a direct correlation to magnetism in the field that the mind of an individual releases and stores in various solid or fluid bodies.

The teaching from this experiment is that the energy of mind is capable of being stored in the fluidic part of the body, primarily the blood stream, and that this information can be transmitted throughout the body. The act of the healer in the primary stage is to release these unwanted charges and bring the body back to an even balance. Then the energies can flow in a right and proper manner
