The (Toronto Dowsers) Water Project:   Update
2  Years later, November 2004
The Toronto Dowsers conceived the Water Project November 26th 2002 at a workshop given by Raymon Grace, triggered by an “Ah Ha!” moment.  Meeting Raymon at the 2000 ASD convention inspired the creation of the Toronto Dowsers and his positive influence, stories, teachings, methods, example, and help has been ongoing.  He has spoken to our group several times since our commencement.

 When Raymon gave the workshop that fall day, he told a story about helping to heal the waters in Eureka Springs, Arkansas as well as in other locales.  At the end of the day I asked if he would energize the 5 gallon jug of reverse osmosis water I had in the car so that I could then pour the water in to smaller bottles and distribute these bottles to members of the Toronto Dowsers.  He did and the Water Project was born.  To date, over 1,000 - 8 ounce bottles of this water, that we named ECH20, have been distributed (the name came from a contest among our members: Energized Cosmic H20 - that keeps echo-ing and echo-ing:).

 When asked how long the energy would last, Raymon replied “Beyond forever.”  Water is receptive to “thought forms”.  You may put a specific thought form in the water to accomplish a specific purpose.  Raymon programmed this water so:

It has an ideal Dynes level for the human body
It has a high energy level
All negativity, toxins, pollutants, negative thought forms have been removed
It is filled with beneficial energies, love, happiness, prosperity, joy, peace
Flower of Life energy has been added
Every other drop of water that it touches will have these qualities and every drop of water those drops touch will have these qualities.

“May this water carry the Energy of the ‘Spirit of the Water" to raise the energy of all water with which it comes in contact. May this process continue to repeat itself to greatest good of humanity and the Earth.  HO!”

 Each drop of water that ECH20  touches will heal every other drop, and so on.  This means that ECH20  is like sourdough starter.  When you have about 1 inch of water left in the bottle, you add more “good” water.  Once you have a bottle, it can last for ever.  Raymon found that Water has a "Spirit" which responds to respect.  Lack of respect and greed seem to be the main reason that water has been polluted.  If water had greed in it (which can be present in bottled water if that energy pervades the company, hence its bottling plant, etc.) it cannot be energized.  The greed must first be removed.

 The idea of the Water Project is: To Heal the Waters of the Planet.  Water comes to us clear, pristine, pure.  We put it in pipes and it comes out of these pipes, hoses, and faucets relatively clean and pure.  At this point what do we do with it?  We use it to wash away toxic spills, grease, and offal.  We dump human and industrial waste into water so that the water will take the poisons away from us and not bother us with their smell, bacteria, etc.  Think of the wars that have been fought on the banks of major rivers, of the anguished bodies dumped in to those rivers.  All the storms and drownings in oceans and lakes and the fear and terror that accompanied these events went into the water.  These energies need transforming in to more beneficial energies.

 ECH20  will help to attain those goals.  Yes, some have successfully chosen to put it to internal use for various reasons, with success: aches, pains, burns, etc., disappeared for some if they sprinkled ECH20  on their body, or bathed in water where ECH20  had been dispensed but its initial purpose was to heal the ponds, lakes, rivers, oceans, etc.

 When Raymon’s friend, Biggy Hunt (a long-time ASD member who passed away March 2003) phoned me during January 2003 and asked me to send him some of “that energized water”, I realized we had a project that would spread beyond the Toronto Dowsers.  Biggy told me he was working on cleaning up 4 rivers in his area and he said he wanted to dowse to see what elements that might be in Raymon’s water, but not in his.

 After Biggy’s call, word began to spread.  We had been sending out about eight orders a month and we thought that was a big deal.  For the next three months, we were getting 30 requests a week!  Requests continue to arrive daily from all over the World.  We charge for the shipping, packaging and bottles.  The water is free.  Contributions help to defray other costs.
 The first person who took the water outside of Toronto was Ann Fowle, a retired botanist and biochemist who went scuba diving in Baja California for her 80th birthday.  She took a bottle of ECH20  with her.  Since then our members have taken ECH20  to Machu Picchu, Israel, England, Estonia, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Australia, New Zealand, Cuba, most of the Canadian provinces and US states including Hawaii and Alaska.  Water projects similar to Toronto’s using ECH20  have sprung up in other countries.

 People using this energized water say that it only takes one drop of this water to raise the energy when poured in to other water.  One drop increased the energy field of a 23,000 gallon swimming pool from 3 feet to 40 feet in under 5 minutes.  Later on, more energy was added which increased it to 200 feet.  One of our community, Dev Khalsa, threw a few drops into his pond every week.  About 6 months later, his wife noticed that the weeds were almost gone and the lilies were returning.

 This is just one of many personal experiences that I have had after beginning the Water Project.  I was in Brattleboro, Vermont after the ASD convention in June of 2003.  One boiling hot afternoon, carefully skirting the dusty construction, I took my bottle of ECH20  and walked across the Brattleboro?Hinsdale Bridge (linking Vermont with New Hampshire) over the Connecticut River.  I stood in the middle and allowed a few drops of ECH20  to fall in to the waters below, with intention, gratitude and love.  I did this a few times.  When I stopped and was ready to leave, I felt a WHOOSH of energy come up at me from the water below.  I knew I had made a difference, one that would keep Echo-ing after I had gone.


 Our Planet’s waters are in a terrible state.  Have you ever considered the possibility that: Water itself allows us to do this?   Water has given us this gift that allows us to use it to cleanse ourselves, our property, and environment.   The Spirit of the Water has been kind to us indeed and we must honor that gift and repay her with respect.

 Dr. Masaru Emoto, author of “Messages From Water” noted that the words “Thank you” and “I Love You”, in virtually every language, when directed to water or put on a container that water passes through, created the most beautiful water crystals and had the highest positive energy of all the words they tried.  He thus observes July 25th as “Thank Water Day”.

 On July 25, 1999, 300 people stood around Lake Biwa, the largest freshwater lake in Japan, which was smelly and clogged with weeds.  The 300 prayed together and thanked the water.  The local newspaper reported that within 6 months that this lake was no longer smelly: no longer clogged with weeds.  (July 25th is also the Mayan “Day Out of Time,” i.e. it does not belong in their calendar, so anything can happen on this date.)

 On July 25th, 2003, the Toronto Dowsers connected with dowsers in Kingston and Hamilton, Ontario; Buffalo New York; and the New York Finger Lakes Chapter.  We all gathered at our chosen spots on the shore of Lake Ontario.  We gave thanks, offered love and respect to the water, and poured in a few drops of ECH20.  A year later, July 25th, 2004, I was at our chosen spot with a smaller group.  The water by the Toronto shore was noxious a year earlier.  It was now clear.

 Angi Venning, hypnotherapist and highly creative Toronto Dowser, wrote “Thank You” and “I Love You” on small pieces of paper and put her water glass on it.  She liked the change in the taste of her water.  This started an off-shoot of our Water Project.  I made up transparent labels that said THANK YOU and I LOVE YOU and began distributing them.  With gratitude and loving intention you place these stickers on your water containers, jugs, pipes, and faucets, including outflow pipes etc.: any place that water might pass through, especially toilet pipes.

 Imagine these labels, placed on pipes in public restrooms such as schools, hospitals, restaurants, office and government buildings, and the like.  My fantasy is that S.W.A.T. teams of kids place these labels, in the washrooms of every single school in North America.  I call this part of the “Beautification of America” program.   I would like to see this taking place in prisons, too.

 When I step in to the tub and see the label on the faucet, or bend over the sink to wash my face and see “Thank You”, or “I Love You” I get a much happier feeling.  I’ve been doing this for over a year now and still feel this, every single day: happiness, and gratitude.


 Our Solar System goes through cycles of 30,000 years and spends approximately 2,500 years in each of the 12 astrological signs.  Astrologically, we are in the Aquarian Age.  Aquarius is the sign of the Water Bearer.  The Water Bearer is holding an urn with water, and pouring out the water.  The water is the Unconscious.  As water pours out into the light, the unconscious becomes conscious.  This connects to the evolution of dowsing as consciousness is indeed raised and all the information that has ever been hidden from us is now being revealed.

 The conventional use for dowsing has been to find water to dig a well for a home or a farm.  The importance of this is indisputable.  However, this makes water “merely” a commodity.  Joey Korn suggested that when he dowses for water he is not necessarily dowsing for the physical presence of water itself but for the energy field of the water.  It is the energy field which contains the information such as depth, gallons per minute, potability, etc.  This reinforces Masaru Emoto’s teachings that water does indeed have a consciousness and stores information.

 As powerful as this project is, Raymon’s mentor, Chief Two Trees, says that what is even more important is to Raise Consciousness.  Energizing water will not have as decisive an impact if Consciousness is not raised.  How about those who continue to pollute?  This is where raised Consciousness is required.

 Raymon inspired this project for us.  It was his willingness to try to heal the waters, because if you don’t try you won’t get results.  He had the belief, faith, and confidence that this could and would be done and had developed the “dowsing energy muscles” to make it happen.  But he also wants to show us that we, too, can make a big difference, by doing our part.  Raymon tells us: “Dowsers are Among the Most Powerful People on the Planet ... their problem is they just don't know it.”  We can do this too, just like he can.  “All” we need to do is to believe, practice and DO SOMETHING.

Adopt a body of water by your home.  Allow some drops of ECH20 to fall in to the waters, perhaps at different points around the perimeter, perhaps once a week.  Encourage everyone you know all over the place to do the same thing.  You can supply the water, from your “Mother Bottle”.  No leaders, no charismatic gurus, no hierarchy.  A community, a network of like minded individuals work towards a collective goal.  Ordinary people.  Working together to achieve extraordinary results.  Very Aquarian.
Yes — We — Dowsers — Can heal the waters of the Planet.
Water, we Thank you.
Water, we Love you
Water, we Respect you
(Prayer to Water, Masaru Emoto, Thank Water Day, June 25, 2003)
[Please send us your Water Stories.  The Toronto Dowsers have received dozens of these stories but we have not yet had the time to compile them.  We are collecting them to share, and to create a chart of all the people who have used ECH20, where and when they have poured it.  Perhaps we may be allowed to post this information in the Digest as another installment at a later date.]
