Nigel Percy And Dowsing
Nigel Percy, co-founder of The Dowsing World Summit, and joint owner of Sixth Sense Consulting, Inc with his wife, Maggie, shares his views and experiences concerning dowsing. As with all “Meet the Masters” interviewees, he offers suggestions for reading that helped him on his way. Unlike many dowsing enthusiasts, he did not venture into dowsing to heal himself. He just became captivated with the idea and followed it with a passion.
Nigel Percy more or less stumbled into dowsing over a period of years, as you'll hear in the interview. In general, though, he was involved in education for many years, teaching (amongst other things) history and philosophy and information technology. After he discovered dowsing and that he could dowse, he slowly allowed it to take more and more of his time up as he became more and more fascinated by it. In fact, he gave up researching his Ph.D. because of it. The internet was not then able to provide much useful information, there were few books, so learning to dowse was something he undertook virtually by himself.
He tried it on anything and everything and learned what worked and what didn't, which methods were useful and which weren't. Eventually, he found an online dowsing community and joined in, and very soon discovered Maggie there. By this time he had given up traditional education and had moved into the healing arena, working in an alternative health center in the UK.
When Maggie and he finally officially joined together, they moved back to the States and started up their own business, based on dowsing.
He still hasn't lost his passion for this subject and loves any opportunity to talk about it, but nowadays only to those who are interested in it themselves.
