LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Dousing can be an effective method to question lies, find water

This letter is in reference to the Missourian's article "Talking to the water" in Thursday's newspaper. Dowsing or "water witching" is effective because what moves the sticks or pendulum is not some mysterious energy, but the response is due to very fine muscle movements within our bodies. Our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual natures speak to anyone who pays attention. Ask any yoga master.
