Paranormal in general
Some people can perceive energy. This is called paranormal, what means above the normal. It isn't normal for science because they do not understand how this is possible. But actually is paranormal very normal, almost everyone has it. Some have hide away, others just don't use it. But all the people who experience it, can all experience it in their own way. This is because there are many ways of being paranormal, clairvoyance (paranormal seeing), clairsentience (paranormal feeling & knowing) and others exist. (Go to paranormal - seeing, feeling, knowing, hearing, smelling and tasting)
The paranormal is very wide. Within for example clairvoyance there are several gradations and possibilities. The first one sees auras, another one get images through. Further someone feels leylines, while someone else feels hartmannlines. Many many possibilities, gradations and compilations. Often they are easy to combine; someone sees an energyline, and with paranormal knowing he knows it is a hartmannline. We only should be very carefully that we ourselves do not work as a filter.

The sixth sense = paranormal
Paranormal is the sixth sense of humans. Paranormal means 'above the normal', it is considered to be something that many people aren't used to, but it is more abnormal if people aren't paranormal (read: are conscious of having it). It is different from what we know, but it is normal. Almost everyone is paranormal, only many people do not know it from themselves. It is a sense that can be developed. People who (think they) aren't paranormal, can be compared with someone who hasn't his smell, like never have learned to smell. Some people think 'paranormal' is an ugly word, it is normal for them, and actually it is.

In European history the rulers have hide away the paranormal. It was a treat to them. people weren't allowed to talk about it and were called mad if people did. But there always have been people that were paranormal, a well-known example was Nostradamus (Michel de Notredame). He made prophecies about the future. With his gift he made many predictions, and many of them came true. This is a well-known example, but there have been many other people too.

The sixth sense of humans is very sensitive. The sense can perceive energies from places. Perceiving in the future, present and past. Everything leaves some energy behind, and this energy can be perceived by the sixth sense. But also has everything people do a consequence, people create the path in the future. People can always choose for something else. The future isn't fixed; if people remain doing things each time the same, then they follow the path straight ahead. But when is chosen for something different, a side-path is taken. Because there are many side-paths, the perception with the sixth sense doesn't really have to happen. Different choices create a different future.

The sixth sense can be influenced very easy. With conceitedness the information and energy is influenced and go through a filter. When this filter isn't clean, it influences the information someone is getting through, and weaken the power of the energy that is getting through. Not only conceitedness creates wrong information, also other negative characteristics humans can have do transform the information. For example being arrogant, being a snob, having an ego, and so on. To keep the information as pure as possible, it is smart letting it flow freely. When people try to control it, the information can transform. Also wanting to many things, wanting to experience as much as possible works bad.

The paranormal of a person has as basis the consciousness of that person, and that consciousness has as basis the health of the person. To use or work with the paranormal well, a good health is needed. The consciousness between people can differ. However it can be compared very worse with someone else. A person can walk through the different phases of consciousness. When someone continues with the next phase this will be noticed very clear, the transition between two phases is very perceptible. The person will notice the difference between the 'unconscious' past and the conscious at this moment.

The consciousness-spectrum exists out of several phases. People can be unconscious (from very unconscious to less unconscious), in this condition the person takes no notice of the things that passes. Further, people can be conscious and more conscious, then someone is 'awake'. And when someone continues with his or her development they will be conscious, but do not need to think. Then people can watch the things that happen and perceive the environment, without any need of thinking what is perceived. Then people do not need to have thoughts about it, they can leave the mind open and free. When the health of someone gets worse, it will guide away the attention of the consciousness, what causes the person getting less conscious. Also the paranormal abilities will (temporary) decrease.

Telepathy (mind reading)
Telepathy is perceiving directly the thoughts and feelings that are present in another consciousness. A paranormal awareness that perceives another person's experience for example, but it can be an animal or every other being. The distance doesn't matter, this can be a metre, but also thousands of kilometres away. Telepathy is the transfer of thoughts from one mind to another. These thoughts can be both in words as in images. You see or hear the images in your head, like someone shows you something or let you hear something.

What is dowsing?
Dowsing is the exercise of a human faculty, which allows one to obtain information in a manner beyond the scope and power of the standard human physical senses of sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. This is possible using tools or using intuition or paranormal abilities / the human ~body  (=deviceless dowsing).

Dowsing is often used for the search for hidden things like water or metals. The search for water (with especially a dowsing rod) is also called 'water witching'. Nowadays it is often used for tracking down leylines and earth rays. Dowsing is an ancient art. It has been used in Egypt, and also with making the choose where the sanctuary had to come.

Other words for dowsing are: divining or divination, rhabdomancy, doodlebugging, and radiesthesia. The French use the word sourcier for finding the invisible (origin: finding water). Someone who is practicing this ancient art, is called a dowser or a diviner.

Dowsing with an instrument can be done in several ways. The four most known possibilities are: a dowsing-rod (L-rod and Y-rod), a pendulum, a lecherantenne, and a bobber/biotensor.

It is also possible to dowse by using intuition or paranormal abilities (inner senses). Some people can see leylines running across the surface. Others can see that more energy is present at specific locations.
Some people are a clairsentient. This means that they got answers inside themselves about certain subjects with knowing that it is true. They do have the feeling that it certainly is true, but they can't explain it rationally. They only have to ask themselves a question, and an answer comes in. This also can be called 'paranormal knowing' or 'inner knowing'. With this inner knowing the are able to know where leylines run across the surface of our planet.
Much more people can feel energies. They find it nice on some places, but elsewhere it doesn't feel well for them, and move elsewhere. Other people are more conscious about the feeling they have. They can sense feelings and emotions of other people. With this inner feeling they can sense leylines too.
