7:00 - 7:15 Mingling, enjoying snacks and meeting other members 7:15 - 7:20 Introduction of Moderator and members 7:20 - 7:30 Announcements for Inspired Events and other local events of interest 7:30 - 9:00 One of our newest members and practitioner of Inspired Events of Maryland Nancy Turner will be giving us a lecture and training on dowsing rods. She also makes them and will be selling them for $5.00 a pair so make sure you bring a little extra cash for them. Let's give Nancy a warm welcome and our attention while she demonstrates the dowsing rods for us. Here is some information on dowsing rods: Dowsing rods, also called divining rods, have increasingly been used by paranormal investigators in recent years to detect the location of spirits. The practice of seeking out ghosts with dowsing rods, which is relatively new, derives from a much older practice that has gone on for thousands of years. What is a Dowsing Rod? Dowsing, or divining, began as a way to find underground water and has been used to find water up until the present day. Over the past several centuries, dowsing rods have been used for various reasons that include determining the sex of unborn children, locating minerals, buried treasure and foretelling the future. Paranormal investigators employ the use of two L-shaped metal rods to locate energy sources and paranormal activity. Although there is no standard material, it is recommended that dowsing rods be made of brass or another lightweight metal. Dowsing rods can even be made using metal coat hangers. Purchasing a nice set of dowsing rods is relatively inexpensive. No one knows for certain whether or not dowsing is an effective means of locating paranormal energy. While there are many skeptics, some of which are also paranormal investigators, there are plenty of supporters of dowsing for ghosts. 9:15 Organizer and Assistants meeting. Just like all the other meetups we would like some of you to donate some snacks. Please, let us know what you can bring.
