Witching for water is not something everyone can do successfully. Marilyn Flaht has that special gift. She uses both a willow branch and rods, each has its own unique way of telling her what is happening below the ground in water streams. Marilyn has witched many wells for farmers in the area and is well known for her gift. Marilyn says that with a willow she can determine where the underground streams are, how deep they are and is able to determine the edge of the stream. With rods, she is able to determine the direction of the streams and follow them. She has a 90% success rate in finding good water. Marilyn is another one of the many talented residents of the Esther Community.
