Waterfalls affect your aura in many different ways...

Ledge waterfall: Water descends vertically over a vertical cliff, maintaining partial contact with the bedrock.[11] Block/Sheet: Water descends from a relatively wide stream or river.[5][11] Classical: Ledge waterfalls where fall height is nearly equal to stream width, forming a vertical square shape.[5] Curtain: Ledge waterfalls which descend over a height larger than the width of falling water stream.[5] Plunge: Fast moving water descends vertically, losing complete contact with the bedrock surface.[11] The contact is typically lost due to horizontal thrust of the water before it falls. It always starts from a narrow stream. Punchbowl: Water descends in a constricted form and then spreads out in a wider pool.[11] Horsetail: Descending water maintains contact with bedrock most of the time.[11] Slide: Water glides down maintaining continuous contact.[11] Ribbon: Water descends over a long narrow strip.[11] Chute: A large quantity of water forced through a narrow, vertical passage.[11] Fan: Water spreads horizontally as it descends while remaining in contact with bedrock.[11] Cascade: Water descends a series of rock steps.[5][11] Tiered/Multi-step/Staircase: A series of waterfalls one after another of roughly the same size each with its own sunken plunge pool.[11] Cataract: A large, powerful waterfall.[11] Segmented: Distinctly separate flows of water form as it descends.[11] Catadupa: A cataract or waterfall, originally those of the Nile. The term catadupae refers to people inhabiting near such cataracts; there are suppositions that these people are deaf due to the constant din.[12] Frozen: Any waterfall which has some element of ice or snow.[11] Moulin: A moulin is a waterfall in a glacier Some waterfalls are also distinct in that they do not flow continuously. Ephemeral waterfalls only flow after a rain or a significant snowmelt. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterfall#Types #whatsavortex


Dan Shaw, Vortex Detective, Gets Personal

I first began to research Paranormal Vortexes in 1992 (26 years!). At that time, I chose to review and synthesize the work of every Vortex researcher I could find, and to present information in a neutral tone, what I call a 'museum tone.' Up until relatively recently I have not widely shared my personal stories of how I came to be the "Vortex Detective." When people ask me questions about vortexes, I begin by carefully qualifying my statement, "Some researchers believe..." and only after that do I share my own, tentative conclusions. I don't think anyone can claim to have a full understanding of the "Vortex Effect," but I am convinced that each of us brings our unique background and insights the phenomenon.

In other words, I have generally shied away from the spotlight, in order to cast greater light on the subject matter itself. I'm only sharing Vortex research, and closely associated topics. My FB posts are NEVER personal (or political, unless environmental). (You've never seen my meals, family, gripes, etc. -- not that there's anything wrong with that.) When you see my posts on FB, you may (rightly) think, "that vortex stuff is interesting but who is this eccentric character, Dan Shaw?

I invite you to visit DanShaw.com, where you can read a bit of my personal story. You'll also find my telephone number. Whether you're new to "Ancient Mysteries", or you've done much research, I invite you to call me... remembering that I live in the Pacific Time Zone. When I get a call from a number I don't recognize, I assume that it's a vortex call! I'd like to connect you with, my community, on a more personal level.

Some Places Are Magical

Some things in this world remain unexplained, mysterious, miraculous, and magical. Our physical world is not all that there is, there are also other worlds, non-physical worlds. We could call these other worlds meta-physical, subtle, or supernatural. Ancient traditions everywhere agree that the supernatural world of the dead and other spirit beings is partly separated from our world, but the supernatural world is not completely separate from ours. Those other worlds sometimes interact with our world. The separation between the world of the living and the world of the dead is so thin and delicate that it is sometimes described as a ‘veil’. At times such as the Day of the Dead, and Halloween, the veil is even thinner. The ancestors, mythical creatures, and evil spirits walk among us.
Have you ever been to a place that seemed haunted, or enchanted? Have you visited a place where you felt scared, elated, sad, angry or some other feeling, and the location itself seemed to be causing your feelings? Welcome to the vortex. A Vortex is a place where the veil is thin, a portal between dimensions.
Vortexes give us access to the realm of magic. At vortexes, paranormal beings such as spirits, entities, orbs, and thunderbirds may enter our dimension. Time may slow down or speed up. Bizarre synchronicities occur. People have spontaneous healings and psychic experiences. At vortexes, anything can happen.


Coba, Mexico: Temple features 13 altars

Coba Archaeologic Zone, Quintana Roo, Mexico
At the "Compound of the Paintings" the courtyard features 13 altars, suggesting that each of these altars is dedicated to one of the 13 'days' of the Mayan 260-day cycle.
I visited on Oct. 22, 1977, and shot these photos.

Ground derived energies

"Ground derived energies were used in demonstration of agricultural stimulation (White, Lakhovsky), sensitive medical diagnosis (White, Abrams, Hieronymus), medical therapies (White, Mellon, Drown), anatomical scanning (Drown, DelaWarr), wireless biological communications (Abrams, Hieronymus, Drown), chemical reactivity (Kolisko), power acquisition (Stubblefield, Strong, Brown, Tomkins, Lockwood, Prentice), meteorological modification (Baigorri), remote sensing and surveying (Beasse, Glazewski, Billington, Ash, Rogers, Moray, Maby, Drown), and mineral prospecting (Beasse, Rogers, Drown). Despite these profound discoveries, the widescale acceptance of geomantic energy or geomantic phenomena [18]was methodically shunned and eliminated from the academic dogma."

Bennie LeBeau aka Blue Thunder aka Bavado

I had the honor of working with Blue Thunder in Sedona, Shasta, and Spokane. His ceremonies were some of the few where I have felt completely comfortable.

The altar at Shasta.

Bavado's ceremonies were radically inclusive. All races, all species, all drums.

In Spokane, Washington. During this ceremony, we had sun, rain, and snow.

Bavado builds a Medicine Wheel in the shape of the Tetons Medicine Wheel, using crystals.


"The Grand Tetons Medicine Wheel of May 8, 2004, encompassed a 1,200-mile diameter wheel. It alleviated the impending explosion of the Yellowstone Super Volcano in 2004. This Ceremony helped restore harmony within the Earth, Wind, Fire and Water elements helping curb potential problems and softening the effects of tornadoes, floods, droughts and earthquakes within this huge circle."

Bavado also produced other visionary maps:

Bavado passed away Sunday, June 12, 2016 at his home after a lengthy illness.

Bavado continues his work from the "other side." And we continue his work here.


Yosemite: Electromagnetic Hotspot

Yosemite Valley pulsates with electromagnetic energies of many kinds. These energies are one with our human energy field. As we move through the valley, we expose ourselves to a bath of numerous interacting electric and magnetic fields. Here's a number of maps which the Vortex Detective may use to assess the numerous contributors to the electromagnetic field in Yosemite.

Yosemite elevations compared to the Great Pyramid

Half Dome is 10 times higher than the Great Pyramid.

Great Pyramid height: 480.69 feet

Half Dome elevation: 8,839 feet
Yosemite valley at 4,000 feet

Half Dome prominence above valley floor: 4,839 feet
