Water Witch Hunt!

Water Witch Hunt

We are on a witch hunt this week, but not the way you think.
We’re not after Supreme Court Justices, or witches of Salem long past.
We are hunting for witches who defy nature’s laws
Skilled at seeking out water by dowsing with divining rods!

I’ve never really been into witchcraft or wizardry other than what I’ve seen on the big screen. But after a few strange encounters with co-workers and friends, I’ve come to realize that not everything can be backed by scientific proof or logical explanation. And for some reason, this strange sorcery has always been a curiosity of mine.

This week on The Next Generation Show, we dig deep into what lies beneath our feet by learning a critical skill of water witching! This age-old technique helped homesteaders determine where to build their wells, set their roots, and live on the land. However, this has since become a lost art of sorts.

We’ll be going into some of the history and some of the lessons we’ve learned over the last few decades when it comes to water procurement after heavy storms, industrial contamination, and urban sprawl. Increased dependence on electronic devices and accuracy of digital locators has turned this old skill into an obsolete, almost forgotten art.

With the onset of urban sprawl and technology, few have had reason to build based on the water source. Instead, access to municipal plumbing has made this hunt for water pointless. But if water sources are scarce or you’re searching for that perfect off-grid location, there’s more than enough reason to learn this amazing, supernatural skill.

Also, don’t miss out on the Pint-Sized Prepper Project of the Week, where we show you how to build and operate your own divining rods to find water in a pinch and turn your kid into a skilled water witch!

        About: The Next Generation

Have you ever felt lost? Whether it be your career, your travels, or your situation, sometimes the ability to navigate the world around you can be a challenge. Imagine being a kid without direction, bearing or intention who grows up and is expected to find their way on their own.

As parents, preppers, and homesteaders, we have the fortitude to survive and protect the ones we love. But there is a side of preparedness that should never be neglected: the next generation. We find ourselves constantly training, learning, delving into these topics of preparedness. Yet how often do you incorporate the little ones around you?

In this show, we’ll explore the different levels and aspects of preparedness in a way that can be easily adapted to the next generation. We’ll explore everyday cues and situations that can be used as teaching and learning opportunities for your little ones. Every aspect of what we do as preppers now and what we learn as we get involved can help give the next generation a better chance. They will grow up more prepared, more diligent and more resilient with every show. They will grow up to be leaders.

Join me each week as we explore a new situation and the opportunities you can have to include the younger ones among you – or even those new to prepping regardless of age, knowledge or skill.
