An 8 part film series  by Alanna Moore

Scientists have been painting gloom and doom scenarios for the environment for too long. While they are busy writing up reports about widespread land degradation there are ordinary people out in the back blocks practising creative, intuitive, innovative and practical solutions to the environmental crises they face.

These often unsung heroes of land care and land repair are not shy to try out unusual or controversial methods (such as dowsing) and challenge the current destructive paradigms of agriculture. As a threat to the status quo, it often means that we never get to hear about their environmental success stories.

This film series is a call for all people to consider positive approaches to their environment, and to discover backyard solutions to global problems. Alanna Moore is a great believer in the power of positive focused thought put into action.


Part 1: Dowsing, Greening & Crystal Farming

26 minutes

Alanna Moore and Marilyn Sprague give some tree selection and planting tips in drought stricken Victoria, including Alanna’s dowsing and planting methods. Then in W.A. Dave Kennett shows us some of his dowsing and planting techniques at a field day; and wheat farmers Geoff and Elaine Scholz explain their methods of crystal farming, which have been a great success on several broadscale wheat farms. This crystal farmer interview never fails to excite and amaze viewers. Seeing and hearing is believing!


Part 2: Eco-Gardeners Down-Under

26 minutes
Tour the temperate climate gardens of permaculture pioneers Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, who give us many practical insights to permaculture design. (It is rare that Bill has granted any interviews in the last few decades, so this one is a rare classic!) Then in tropical north Queensland see the jungly gardens of Jane ‘Many Leaves’ Lawrance, with unusual food plants and Transylvanian Naked Neck chickens featured.


Part 3: Grassroots Solutions to Soil Salinity

38 minutes
Despite government scientists saying that their methods can’t work – some farmers in Australia are successfully tackling soil salinity and land degradation. See two farms that have been saved from salting – by installing water interceptor banks and planting trees on them. See how dowsing has been applied to this practical system of soil conservation, and meet a scientist who has proved that the theory of ‘rising water table’, as a cause of land salting, is generally not the cause of it at all.


Part 4: Growing & Gauging Sustainability

26 minutes
Malcolm Borgward describes his progress in developing sustainable farming methods, guided by ‘Universal Knowledge’ – which he accesses with kinesiology (muscle testing). He has achieved outstanding results with soil enhancers including rock dust, lime and microbes. Retired organic farmer David von Pein then tells us how we can monitor the value of soil inputs using various probes and meters. He demonstrates the use of the Brix meter (a refractometer), which measures the level of sugars in crop plants – as a good indicator of their health and nutritional value.


Part Five: Remineralising the Soil

24 minutes

Land degradation is rife in Australia, with farmland topsoils vanishing rapidly. Our foodstuffs have ever decreasing nutritional values as a result. Mineral imbalance in modern society is abysmal, and is linked to disease on physical, mental and spiritual levels.

The answer to the problem of low mineral status comes to us from the Earth. Crushed rock of many varieties can help to rejuvenate soils in a short time (given enough organic matter and the presence of moisture and soil microbes) and provide greatly improved nutrition from crops grown in them.

Alanna Moore introduces the subject from an intuitive perspective, and we get to see dowser Ross Henderson in Tasmania showing his method of soil testing by dowsing. We then get to learn about the energetic value of volcanic rock dusts, at a training session run by Alanna.

This beneficial energy, known as paramagnetism, seen in much of Australia’s basalt rock, is explained, and samples tested with a magnet. The dowsing approach is also demonstrated, while Professor Phil Callahan’s discoveries in this regard are outlined.

A case study, where excellent results are seen from using biodynamic growing practises combined with rock dust, is then showcased, with Pia Lindgrew talking about the amazing growth in her commercial olive grove.


Part Six: Making Power Towers

32 minutes

The mysterious Irish Round Towers found in the monastic complexes of old Ireland have caused much speculation about their purpose. Professor Phil Callahan discovered that these antenna like stone structures, up to some 34m/100′ tall, act as wave guides for cosmic energies which can have beneficial effects on Earth.

In this film we get to see several Round Towers in Ireland, then find out how small replicas can be used in the garden and farm to enhance plant growth, enliven livestock and a host of other effects.

Alanna Moore demonstrates dowsing the energy fields of mini Towers made from paramagnetic sandpaper and talks about some of her experiences and results from building hundreds of Towers around Australasia. She outlines the theory of modern Power Tower building to her dowsing class, then we get to see one being constructed by them, and dowsing of the resulting energy field.

Eight Tower owners around Australia then talk about their Towers and the effects they have noticed since they went up. From lusher orchards, increased wildlife, happier chickens, improved business, greater family harmony and more rainfall, to increased productivity in commercial strawberry, herb and wheat crops.


Part Seven: Agnihotra / Homa Farming

33 minutes

A revival of ancient Indian tradition, the practise of making Agnihotra ritual fires can help restore harmony to the environment and make plants grow better. Frits and Lee Ringma talk about the benefits of Homa farming at their Hunter Valley, New South Wales, property ‘Om Shree Dham’ and demonstrate the fire ritual.


Part Eight: Radionic Farming & Landcare in Australasia

42 minutes

Agricultural radionics is a form of applied dowsing. Radionic methods include soil testing and balancing, and health diagnosis and healing at a distance. In this film Alanna Moore interviews four radionic practitioners who talk about their methods and experiences in this cutting edge of esoteric agriculture. Find out how they treat health problems of livestock, soil imbalances, rain making, and more.

Ross Henderson in Tasmania tells of his many years of radionic cattle farming, starting with a sick farm he brought back into harmony. Ross talks of how he pioneered the use of agricultural radionic coils with master dowsers Ralph Thomas and Frank Moody (including Frank’s anti-rabbit coils).

In central Tasmania Peter Downie describes the challenging problems of his large highland sheep farm and how radionics is helping to improve the harmony of the land and his family’s health and happiness. We get to see some of Ross’s coils there, while Peter dowses the energy field.

Then James Hedley, a radionic farming consultant of New South Wales tells of his discoveries and explains his methods. James is in demand from landcare groups eager to control pests without the use of toxic chemicals. He can even make it rain! James uses radionic coils, biodynamic sprays and a standard radionic instrument. We get to see the effects these have had on rejuvenating the soil and orchard on his farm.

Lastly, we get to hear from professional radionic consultant Alistair Cox on the subject, at a dairy farm near Auckland in New Zealand. He explains about his radionic box and shows us some more radionic coils that he has created.


From Jackie Dow, secretary New Zealand Society of Dowsing and Radionics, 5th May 2004

“Thankyou for the very interesting video. It was well presented, easy to follow and covered many aspects of dowsing and radionics. It is the best dowsing video I have seen. I particularly liked the Towers of Power, amazing energy field. Well done Alanna and thankyou. It will be popular in our library.”
