Keynote speaker at this year’s conference.
There’s a common assumption that we share one common reality. This assumption may seem so obvious as to not be worth mentioning—except that it’s quite possibly untrue. Mark Twain once wrote, “the report of my death was an exaggeration,” when he heard people thought they’d seen reports of his death. According to my research and surveys reported in my book, Quantum Jumps, 27% of 567 people surveyed reported that they have “seen dead people and animals alive again.”
Commonly reported reality shifts and Mandela Effects involve objects changing, or vanishing and reappearing, and involve changes to movies, songs, books, and products—and people or animals previously reported dead being alive again.
What’s going on when we observe such reality shifts and Mandela Effects? Quantum phenomena occurs at all levels of reality—not just ‘in the quantum realm.’ Such phenomena involves instantaneous changes of state, and includes seemingly improbable things as: so-called ‘spooky action at a distance,’ and instantaneous exchanges of information through quantum entanglement, quantum teleportation, and superpositions of states (where quanta can simultaneously be in two possible states at the same time). Quantum phenomena require an Observer, and the measurements obtained by an Observer has everything to do with what choices the Observer makes. Observers can influence past events also, so choices made now can change what has previously occurred. We notice reality shifts when we are both the Actors and the Observers in our lives, witnessing more than one set of historical events. An Observer’s awareness of having jumped between realities or timelines can seem like a paradox, if all possible realities might co-exist, yet we typically only remember one—or perhaps two.
New paradigms take time to be fully adopted, and what we are witnessing now at this dawn of the Quantum Age is the letting go of old Aristotelian logic with its three basic principles of: identity, contradiction, and the excluded middle. Quantum physics has pretty much completely overturned this classical logic apple cart, but the scientific method has not yet adopted the much more comprehensive and complete quantum logic, with its co-existing, overlapping possibilities.
We typically believe we live in a ‘classical physics’ world, yet we are seeing ever-increasing evidence that suggests primacy of quantum physics. And some of the greatest insights can come from taking a closer look at ways that quantum physics differs from classical physics.
Some differences between classical and quantum physics include:
Quantum physics requires an Observer outside of the system being perceived, while Classical physics does not. Who “I” am as an Observer is of central significance in the reality I subsequently observe. We gain the ability to expand our sense of self by noticing we are both actors and observers in our lives, laying the groundwork for becoming capable of witnessing more than one set of historical events.
Quantum physics utilizes a concept of ‘quanta’ in which events occur in discontinuous, ‘stair step’ fashion; classical physics events occur on a smooth continuum. All scientific fields are starting to incorporate quantum jumps in such new fields as: Quantum Biology, Quantum Chemistry, and Quantum Astronomy. Nature is especially adept and adroit at utilizing quantum retrocausality (in which we in the present can affect the past) to produce exceptionally high levels of efficiencies in such natural processes as photosynthesis. Photosynthesis has been proven to be an example of quantum phenomena occurring where scientists never would have expected to find it—in warm, wet, messy, macroscopic (larger-than-Planck-scale) environments.
Quantum physics has disproven classical physics assumptions of: Material Realism (where it was assumed that only what can be measured matters); Locality (where it was assumed that non-local events do not occur); and Objectivity (where it was assumed that ‘objective measurements’ could be made without including an Observer’s choices).
We can see from quantum physics that we are Observers whose choices matter.
We are capable of recognizing reality shifts and Mandela Effects because we are capable of experiencing more than one possible history of events.
We can check on facts we thought we knew, or compare notes with people who also experienced events with us many years ago, and expect to occasionally be surprised that what we remember differs from the official history—and that’s OK. It’s more than OK, in the sense that this allows us to be part of a constantly evolving reality.

by Bradford Hansen-Smith
If you have any interest in geometry, math, art, fractals, complexity, the quantum state, patterns of energy (referenced in sacred geometry and labyrinth designs,) the concept of wholeness, or ideas about unity, you will be enlightened to discover folding circles is a new and extraordinarily simple tool for understanding these are all the same principled patterns of organization in a great variety of formed expressions and separated ideas.
Why Fold Circles? Because it is good for your hands and eyes, your mind, your imagination, and the well being of your spirit.
Most paper folding is about product, the circle is about process with endless product. The circle is comprehensive, and origin to all folded shapes and forms. Nothing can do what the circles does.
Folding the circle is nothing like origami where folding a square is just one part of five; four have been removed.
For more than 2500 years we have been told the circle is a picture, an idea that has prevented us from folding it. Fundamentals of 2-D and 3-D geometry, and math relationships are revealed in the folds of the circle, all in one place. If this were not so, we would not have been able to construct what we have using parts of circles to construct by adding and subtracting fragments, all to make larger and more complex parts using formalistic methods.
The circle is the most experiential, comprehensive, hands-on, educational tool we have. If you are interested come and fold circles; if you doubt what I say then come and fold circles. You will learn things about the circle that you do not know.
Bradford Hansen-Smith will be teaching a daylong workshop at the 2018 West Coast Dowsers Conference on Tuesday, July 3.
For the last twenty-seven years, Bradford has shared his exploration with teachers, students, and home school families. This has been a major part of discovering a unique process we have no knowledge about. He travels internationally working with all ages and grade levels with what he has come to call “Wholemovement”, a comprehensive upgrade in understanding the word geometry.
You can join him as he demonstrates a process of Wholeness beyond all other shapes and forms.

A Little Background story
The biennial West Coast Conference (WCC) of the American Society of Dowsers is being held this year at UC Santa Cruz starting at the end of June. I’ve been making labyrinths at the WCC for 30 years. In 1989 I made the triple spiral design with Nicolas Finck. The next year I made my first design, the Figure 8 design (drawing on left).
It was based on the cracks in a standing stone on the top of a cairns at a spot on Point Reyes CA (photo below right) which was one of my favorites. After that I made a new, never been walked, labyrinthine design every year. For many years I did surveys collecting people’s experiences.
For at least 20 years, I have put my new design on the plaza in College 8 (now Rachel Carson) in chalk and a Cretan (below left) on grass up near registration.
A Labyrinth Plan for 2018 Conference
This year the conference is being held at Stevenson College while Rachel Carson is renovated. I went down with WCC committee members to check out sites for the grass Cretan and the chalk design. Stevenson has a centrally located plaza with an old Oak tree at the west end which will provide natural shade for the vendor tables.
The only place for a decent size chalk design is on the south edge of the plaza, a little east of center (google earth view of Stevenson College, the plaza site is marked by a red dot and the Letter L.)
We walked down to the south edge of the campus where an unimpeded view of part of the Great Meadow can be seen. With the ocean in the distance. Fantastic view. When we were there on a sunny day, the area was filled with perhaps two dozens students lying on the grass. Only problem it was ~420 feet from the plaza. Barry Christian suggested a courtyard area closer to the plaza (~120 feet). It was a neat place with a large Oak at the west end, and adequate space for a Cretan on grass.
It had an added feature that a path from the parking area to the plaza ran on the east side of courtyard, so many attendees would get a nice introduction to the conference. Because of the view and it being a nice getaway from conference activity, I chose the Great Meadow site. Then I thought that why not put a simple crop circle design in the courtyard site as an introducing element.
When I returned I looked at Stevenson College on Google earth and located the three places for this year’s designs. Using the edge of the ruler I found that they lined up in a straight line! A month later I went down for a second look. I went to the courtyard first and as I walked around the space, a site popped out to me. I dowsed its exact location. Then I asked if there was an energy line present, Yes, it ran through my site I picked and it ran south towards the plaza. On the plaza it went through the site of the chalk design, and I located the site for the Cretan on grass design at the great Meadow area, and the energy line ran through it.
I dowse that the bull’s eye crop circle (above left) would be appropriate for the courtyard site. I have not made it before so I don’t know its effect. For the plaza design, I thought I would base the design on a recent crop circle. I searched through my crop circle year put out by the Alexanders. In the 2014 edition I found a crop circle based on a unicursal hexagram, drawn with a single continuous path. (above middle) . So I made a unicursal hexagram which is very labyrinthine (above right).
An Energy Line Runs Through It…
I first thought that I had found an energy line from a ley line. My definition of a ley line is a straight line alignment of three or more notable sites. A notable site can be a standing stone, or a stone circle, or a holy well, or it could be from a labyrinth or other unknown sources. But after thinking about for a while, I realized that I didn’t have enough information to say the energy was from an existing ley line.
I found an energy line and its source could be several possibilities. It could come from a standing stone. Every standing stone I dowsed when I was in England in 1986, and there were dozens, had two energy line running through them, perpendicular to each other and meeting in the stone.
I had made a very small standing stone near the entrance of a rock 3 ring Cretan that I made on the Art Line in Nevada. (photo left).
It had two energy lines running through them. I dowsed 10 stone circle sites, all stone circle had energy lines that ran through and beyond
(example is Merry Maidens, below right).
I did not study where they went, a much bigger endeavor, and I knew very little about ley lines at the time (1986). But I did dowse a ley line because the last stone circle place we visited was the Hurlers, which were three stone circles in a row. Dowsing simply for energy lines, this is what I found. What I conclude was that three stone circles in a row helped to magnify the energy coming in them. (Image below}
I made over 40 earthworks and every one had several types of energy lines that ran through them and on beyond them (photo double spiral dowsing study). I never followed any line leaving the earthwork very far. I remember asking how far by dowsing and received that many of the lines went around the world. That was one of those answers in which I would have to do a lot work to confirm, so I didn’t think about it.
The Stevenson energy line could be from energy generated by a ley line. That’s one of several possibilities. In England, many ley lines are made with stone circles and standing stones, each of which is capable of generating energy lines. One would have to orient each structure so that their line ran along the ley lines.
If there was no existing energy line, proper alignment of the Cretan, six pointed star, so that the energy ran along their straight line alignment would create a very high energy in itself. The Cretan will generate power spot energy and the six pointed star Yod energy, and will those two combined they produce a higher level energy. I saw this before with meander wand design (Image below).
I will be making a ley line on top of an existing energy line.
Over the past 30 years all my designs have been independent of each other. One year I made a cross of four labyrinthine designs, and the energy at the center was quite high. This year I was making was a ley line. I know that I can site the Cretan and hexagram so that their energy will flow along the ley line. Their combined energy will create a high level energy. A circular design will draw in energy to its center and then send energy out the circle at a higher frequency energy. A circle will purify the area where it’s in. What will happen when the Cretan and Hexagram combined energy hits the crop circle is hard to predict.
So the newly created energized ley line will interact in some unknown way and may result in a even higher level energy. To modulate the effects of supposed higher energy line, the following prayer will be imprinted into the ley line, may everyone who experiences this energy do so according to their needs.
Another possible effect of adding energy to an existing energy line may increase its width, which I dowsed to be. four feet wide.
Feeling the Effects:
After determining the three sites I sat at a table on the plaza and watched how the students used it. My seat was off the line, a student sat a table that was on the line. He left and I went and sat on the line. Within moments, I started pulsing, a full body pulse. I left and went back to the table off line. the pulsing stopped. I went back and sat on the line, and the pulsing reappeared. Later when the three committee members joined me in the plaza, I asked them to sit at the table on the line. Sarah, across me, said almost immediately, I am buzzing. Then moments later, no really, I’m really buzzing. Birute on my left reported that, Yes, I did feel a buzz. It was subtle but clear. , and Carol on my right said, Yes, I definitely felt something. It wasn’t a “buzzing” but definitely something strong and powerful. In my mind, I was persuaded that an energy was present.
The line runs, I estimate, to be 8 degrees East of North/South. As it heads south, it enters the ocean at Santa Cruz and stays in the ocean. North, it runs east of the East Bay and runs into the Mount Shasta area in northern CA.
Alex Champion will be creating this Ley Line at the 2018 West Coast Dowsers Conference on Saturday Morning, June 30 at 10:45 AM.

Earthworks and Labyrinths
By Melinda Iverson Inn
Health and Wellness Dowsing Specialist
and presenter at this year’s conference, June 29-July 3
One day my dear husband and I went shopping at one of the local large home-improvement stores. He needed to pick up something or other for the house, and wanting to be a supportive partner, I went along for the ride. We entered the store and began searching the aisles. As he continued the search for his item, I stopped to examine an interesting find and stood in the aisle fascinated by this object. I don’t remember how long I actually stayed there admiring whatever-it-was that was so fascinating, but when I looked up, my husband had moved on to another part of the store. It’s a big store, and I hadn’t seen in which direction he’d gone. All of a sudden a wave of frustration took over and I felt a rush of heat; right there, in the middle of the aisle, I stamped my foot. As soon as I did it, I realized something else was obviously going on. Really, when was the last time you stamped your foot over something? But there I was, a grown woman, acting like an angry two-year-old who felt abandoned in a store.
Lo and behold, I was a two year old, energetically, at that moment in time. Where did this obvious visceral, emotional reaction to such a benign situation come from? At that moment I did not know, but I was definitely going to find out. This completely uncharacteristic reaction, albeit a bit amusing, prompted in me a desire to do a little investigating. What was the trauma that had been triggered? Could I release it? That day when I got back home, I went to straight to work, who wants to walk around as an angry 2 year old? Dowsing through a series of questions I had learned to ask my clients when helping them release their trauma blocks, I eventually narrowed down the search to a specific time frame, what other person was involved, and what caused the unwanted behavior. With the information discovered and using a reliable technique I was able to release the trauma. Thank goodness. I suppose being 2 has its advantages, but not for a woman over 50!
The Process of 1
At that point I decided it was important to me to teach others how to do the process of 1. Recognizing a trauma; with some traumas it’s pretty easy to see and feel our reactions to seemingly harmless situations, and yet most of our traumas lie dormant until they are triggered. 2. Investigating; what questions need asking to really get to the root of the disharmony and subsequent reaction. 3 Make it as easy as possible to release whatever was discovered, which can bring us back to ease, inner spaciousness, harmony and ready for the next issue that I can pretty much guarantee will arise.
Dowsing can help!
Although my talk is titled the ‘Wisdom of Loss”, as I lost my home in the recent California wildfires, which taught me about trauma from a whole new perspective, its really about the ability to investigate our traumas and losses, and to see the wisdom in investing the time to lose our stuff, whether it’s a trauma, or an object its all the same. There are lessons to be learned: so that when we ultimately lose everything, including our bodies, it’s not a big deal. The goal is to keep cleaning up our inner compost pile by releasing our inner attachments to things that don’t serve as useful to us anymore. Believe it or not, at one point in time or another those stinky banana peels, known as a particular idea created by a trauma, actually served us well.
At West Coast Dowers 2018, we’ll look into investigating the exploration of the trauma in loss, no matter how big or how small the experienced loss is, how to know when you are triggered, how to narrow down the search for the trigger, and a dowsing short cut to release the unconscious attachment to the trauma.
I’m excited to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones.

Do ghosts really exist? After people die, can they continue to hang around and haunt a person or a place? Can entities cause problems for us? Can paranormal activity be real? After dowsing and teaching as my profession for almost twenty years, with a primary focus on personal energy clearing and space clearing, my answer to those questions is a resounding “Yes!” In fact, this aspect of my space clearing work has become my specialty.
After doing thousands of space clearings, both on-site and remote, I find two primary causes of paranormal experiences:
- Earthbound Spirits
- Interference Energy
An Earthbound Spirit is a human being who has lived on Earth, whose physical body has died and whose soul has entered the astral plane, but for some reason, the person chooses not to enter the proverbial tunnel and follow the Light to join their loved ones in the Higher Realms. They are too attached to a person, a place, or to physical life itself. They are still somewhat aware of their physical surroundings and can see the physical people around them, but most of those people cannot hear or see them.
Some souls get trapped in the astral plane for many years, sometimes hundreds of years. They do not realize that they have trapped themselves.
There are many kinds of beings in the astral plane besides Earthbound Spirits. One category of these spirit beings is what I call “non-human entities.” These are beings that have never had life on Earth as human beings, but are somehow related to human activity. I believe that in a very real sense, human beings actually create these “negative beings” with our negative thoughts, emotions, and actions.
When people enter intensely negative states of mind and emotion, because of traumatic life experiences, we can open a crack between the worlds and energies in the astral plane can connect to us. This is what I call Interference Energy. It then greatly exacerbates the negativity that attracted it in the first place. It sets up in certain places in the home that I call “doorways to the astral plane.” Some might call them portals.
Interference Energy then causes all the natural (Earth) energies in that home to be detrimental. It also exacerbates negativity in and between people in the home. Interference Energy interferes with our lives.
Problems Caused by Earthbound Spirits and Interference Energy
As a general rule, people just don’t feel good when these energies are in their homes or offices, and it’s much more common than you might think. Some might not even notice it, but it can cause major problems for more energetically sensitive people, especially for empaths.
Some people feel depressed and anxious when in spaces that are affected by these energies. Physical symptoms of illness will likely be exacerbated. For others, it can actually cause physical symptoms, such as intense headaches, nausea, insomnia, strong pressure in the neck and chest area causing a choking sensation, etc.
Earthbound Spirits and negative beings, or non-human entities, can see and hear us, but, as a general rule, we cannot hear or see them. Children see them more often that adults. Cats and dogs are often reported to hiss or bark at “nothing,” however it seems that they are seeing something that we can’t see.
However, in time, if the Earthbound Spirits or the negative beings related to Interference Energy have access to the space for long enough, they can learn to manipulate the physical energy environment and cause paranormal events. They can turn lights off and on, and they sometimes are actually reported to flip switches. They can cause electronic equipment to malfunction or quit working altogether. They can make rapping sounds on walls and ceilings, as well as the sounds and physical vibrations of footsteps, when no one in the physical space is walking. Some clients report smelling strong odors, like cigarette or cigar smoke, a particular perfume, or even more gruesome odors, such as rotting flesh.
Some Earthbound Spirits may simply be trying to let their loved ones know they are there. Others are angry because strangers are living in what they consider to be their home, and they want to drive them away. Even if they mean well, most Earthbound Spirits are frustrated and angry, which causes most of the natural energies in the home to be detrimental.
The negative beings that are given access to the home through Interference Energy often want to instigate fear in the inhabitants of the space. They feed on our fear and negativity; it strengthens and empowers them. This is one of the dangers in working to clear them, as for many people, dealing with these spirits breeds fear, which can actually make things worse.
For the most part, these energy beings do not cause physical harm and are not dangerous. Sometimes my clients are amused and aren’t afraid; others are terrified. They almost all want these activities to stop.
Finding the Energies and Clearing the Spaces
In my housecleaning sessions, both remote and onsite, I deal with these energies almost every day. You can learn how I find and clear them in the full-length version of this article at www.dowsers.com. However, this is not something I can adequately teach you to do in the written word. After working with these energies for many years, I find it takes lots of personal coaching, with much time for practice, before I can get other dowsers to feel confident in finding and clearing these energies. Very few do, especially with Interference Energy. For now, I just wanted to convey that I know that these supernatural occurrences can be real and ultimately can be cleared.

Within each of us lies the potential for forging a sacred relationship that can change our lives. A relationship that can open our eyes to a world of wonder previously beyond our ken. Spirit Animals can open an ancient doorway to the mysterious realm of the soul. When we travel through this doorway – new ways of knowing unfold. We learn that we are intimately connected, not only with the animals but, ultimately, with the Creator of ALL life.
We need this connection with nature for our health, and well-being. We also need to learn things from nature that no human-being can teach.
A Spirit Animal is an animal whose energy and spirit resonates with a specific person, tribe, family or group of people. All animals, and plants for that matter, have an invisible divine or energetic reality beyond their physical existence. Spirit animals have been referred to as “totem” animals, by Native Americans, and as “power” animals, a term especially prevalent in the 1960s and 1970s. I prefer to use the term “Spirit Animal” as this more closely reflects that we are dealing with the “over-soul” of the physical animal.
Spirit animals are important guides for humankind and have guided us for thousands of years. Most cultures—including Egyptians, Native Americans, Hindus, Mayans, and others too numerous to mention here—recognized the importance of animal and plant spirits. For example, from my own heritage and Celtic culture, each clan has a “clan animal” in much the same way that the Native Americans had a totem animal for their tribe (i.e. the Crow people). (The Oak Tree and the lion are two of the most important symbols for my family clan, the Macgregor’s. These symbols are found on our Coat of Arms and on our badges. )
Every person on Earth is aligned with at least one Spirit Animal – sometimes referred to as their life totem or life spirit animal. In quite a few cases, an individual may have more than one Spirit Animal. For example, I work with over forty Spirit Animals. Each one of these animals has unique qualities and abilities.
By forging a relationship with Spirit Animals:
– Your unique qualities and characteristics are revealed to you in a way that allows you to fully “own” and make use of them as your greatest strengths.
– You experience a world previously beyond the scope of your perceptions. Secrets are revealed that you might never have discovered on your own.
– You are able to more readily tap into the mysteries of the Universe and understand signs.
– Your life becomes richer and filled with greater meaning as you experience greater connection and understanding of nature and natural cycles.
– Your growing compassionate heart transforms the planet by bringing greater caring into the world for the benefit of all beings.
The importance of having a greater understanding and respect for other life, at this moment in history, cannot be over-emphasized. The animals and the plants are calling to us – the human race – to heed them – to know them – to care for them. Whenever a species disappears from the face of the Earth, we lose a little bit of our own souls. Yet, by partnering fully with the animals, we can learn how to live more joyously and wisely on Earth.
