How to Investigate Paranormal Vortexes

by Dan Shaw

As a Vortex Detective, I investigate paranormal places, similar to the Bermuda Triangle. Sometimes I'm asked about mysterious events, such as famous disappearances, for example in Yosemite and Alaska. What actions can we take to map and measure vortex energies at a site, especially a site where anomalous phenomena have occurred? My "Vortex Effect" hypothesis suggests that electromagnetic energies of many types influence our physiology, our psyche, our perceptions, and our electronic devices. Here's a number of ways I may investigate a site to establish the nature of the vortex energies.

  1. Dowse with pendulum and / or rods. Use a dowsing chart. Dowsers locate water, minerals, lost objects, and ley lines. Dowse remotely using Map Dowsing.
  2. Deviceless dowsing. Contemplation. Self-observation. What am I feeling in my body? Warmth? Elation? Tingling? Tightness? Where? Vortexes often correspond with a chakra. At the Fissures in Yosemite, I felt energy in my throat. I saw a marriage proposal, also associated with throat / speech.
  3. Analyze air currents. Study wind maps. On a small scale, use a smoke pen.
  4. Dream analysis. Monitor REM sleep with alarm to wake up and record dreams. Many traditions including the Bible suggest dreaming at sacred sites.
  5. Analyze magnetic maps. Various types of magnetic maps show different parts of the magnetic field. Where magnetic intensity changes rapidly over distance, we see a component known as magnetic slope.
  6. Observe compass and dip needle. Dip needle shows the vertical component of the magnetic field. Do these readings change over time?
  7. Measure electrical currents in the soil. (Recommend: finderskeepersusa.com)
  8. Ground penetrating radar. (Recommend merlinburrows.com)
  9. Check Seismic Survey data.
  10. Acoustic survey and analysis. Calculate resonant frequencies of enclosed spaces.
  11. Observe plant growth. Do trees bend, twist, spiral, or branch in unusual ways? Rare plants indicate unique soil types.
  12. Observe animal behavior. Absence? Abundance? Occurence of rare animals may indicate a vortex. Observe any animal paths, these tend to follow energy lines.
  13. Air photo analysis. Evidence of circles or half-circles? Circumference of 54 feet or miles, or multiples? See US Vortexes 54 Miles Wide.
  14. Check Aeronautic Chart for magnetic disturbances.
  15. Neurofeedback devices such as Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) may show alterations in brain activity at vortex points.
  16. Drumming, ceremonies, clearing energies
  17. Kirlian photography. Aura photos may show the human energy field affected when entering a Vortex.
  18. Radio frequency sweep. Do radios function the same inside and outside the area of interest? Are there radio dead zones? Where?
  19. Time-slip experiment. Two synchronized watches keep time together. Bring one into the Vortex. After a period of a week, are the two timepieces still synchronized? See the Vortex Field Guide.
  20. Gauss Meter. Does magnetism spike in certain areas?
  21. Electrosmog Meter. Are man-made frequencies polluting the site?
  22. Magnetometer. Magnetometer surveys at Vortexes show a statistically significant variation in magnetic intensity of an area of just a couple feet. See Vortex Field Guide.
  23. Study geologic maps. Evidence of ore and mineral deposits? Faults? Electical discontinuities? Underground water?
  24. Feng shui bagua analysis.
  25. Vastu site analysis.

To investigate events in the past, we can assess other factors.
  1. Analyze horoscope at location and time of event.
  2. Check solar weather at time of event.
  3. Check earthquakes worldwide at time of event.
  4. Analyze time cycles: 7 days, 40 years +/- one day. What other cataclysmic events occurred on the same day in history (+/- one day)? Extreme weather, etc.

I'd love to have the opportunity to interview various experts,here are some sample questions.
  • volcanologist. What affect do volcanoes and lava fields have on the magnetic field?
  • seismologist. Can we measure fleeting energy discharges in the air above faults?
  • geophysicist. Can magnetic storms generate a 'rogue wave'?
  • magneto-biologist. Demonstrate magneto-reception in birds, bees, fish, and bacteria, and the possibility in humans.
  • oceanographer. Explain varying electric currents in a column of seawater at different depths, different temperature, salinity, dissolved solids, etc.

Vortexes According to Seth

from Seth Speaks

The great religions of the world all had their births near the major coordinate points.

In such locales, changes are apt to appear rapidly, for ideas and emotions are propelled into physical actuality with great vigor. Ideas sweep like fire among the people. The psychic atmosphere is fertile. Creativity springs forth easily, and so such locations are not necessarily peaceful, although they would be the best ground for peace to grow. Any ideas for good or bad become materialized with such strength, however, that the contradictory feelings of mankind are more apparent near coordinate points.

There are effects, not as yet ascertained by your scientists, that appear in such areas: effects that were known however at the time of Atlantis, and also utilized by the Lumanians. In a strange manner, space puckers to an unobservable degree, as far as your instruments are concerned, near these coordinate points.

Some of my readers may be familiar with "black holes" and "white holes" in space, that your scientists have recently discovered.

These points have somewhat the same qualities. The electromagnetic aspects of thoughts and emotions, the animations, are drawn through points that CAN compare to miniature black holes. Here their energy momentarily disappears from your system, is immeasurably ACCELERATED, however, and returned through what you might call a miniature white hole-- concentrated now, and highly directed back into your system of reality.

This is only an analogy, but for working purposes it is a fair enough one. There is, again, a wrinkling effect about these points, though not as yet observable to you, where space itself, it seems, yearns to disappear inside the first point. There are other distortions in physical laws. A few of these have been observed, but ignored as pertinent signs. The activities of atoms and molecules quicken as they apprach these points, but the distance BETWEEN the atoms and molecules remains the same. That is important.

These coordination points also serve to give your system additional amounts of energy. The law of entropy does not apply, therefore. The coordination points are actually, then, sources of additional energy. They only open howver, when concentrations of energy build up within your system. I would like to make this clearer. A physical vehicle, a space ship, for example, could never survive that kind of exit or entry from your system.

In Atlantis there were those who utilized this knowledge, accelerating certain thoughts through concentration, emphasizing certain feelings so as to send them through these coordination points. Great stability was therefore achieved as far as roads, buildings, and the like were concerned. Such projects were carried out with great consideration for their position between various coordinate points.

This pocketing-of-space effect can be perceived in certain trance states. This can be compared almost to a wadding-up of air.

Now sit quietly with your eyes closed and TRY to ascertain the directional proximity of main or subordinate coordination points. Here are some aids to help you.

With the intent in mind, you will find your inner vision inclining towards a particular direction of the room, and even your thoughts will seem to flow in the same direction. An imaginary line will help you properly identify the place, in any given location, closest to any given coordination point. Imagine a line drawn from the point of your inner vision, coming from the center of the inner eye you seem to be using, outward. Let it be joined by an imaginary line from the top of your skull, following the same direction in which your thoughts seem to flow.

You have an imaginary line, then, in this case, from here, and here. There is an angle, and then both lines form together. They will point unerringly to the direction closest to a coordination point. (To illustrate this as she spoke for Seth, Jane touched her eyes with one hand and the top of her head with the other. She extended her hands from these points until they met at arm's length, somewhat off to her right.)

The subordinate points permeate space. Jane will be able to tell you, for example, the nearest point in this room. Sometimes the angle will be longer, but the two lines will point in the right direction. Energy is, therefore, most effective in those areas.

Using this analogy of the white hole and the black hole: to make this clearer, the white hole is within the black hole. Electromagnetic properties are drawn into the black hole, and accelerated byond imagination. The acceleration and the activities within the black hole draw unbelievable proportions of additional energy from other systems.

This greater acceleration changes the very nature of the units involved. In the meantime, the characteristics of the the black hole itself are changed by this activity. A black hole is a white hole turned inside out, in other words. The electromagnetic "matter" may reemerge thourgh the same "hole" or "point" which is now a white hole.

The reemergence, however, again alters its characteristics. It becomes "hungry" once more, and again, a black hole. The same sort of activity goes on in all systems. The holes, therefore, or coordination points, are actually great accelerators that reenergize energy itself. (p. 430)

US Geologic Survey Magnetic Map Shows Montana Vortex

This screen capture from the US Geologic Survey website shows a magnetic "hot spot" at the location of the Montana Vortex (just North of Columbia Falls).


See & feel magnetic energy: around the human body (the aura), & trees

Leading tours at the Montana Vortex, every day I teach about 100+ people to see and feel auras -- the field of energy around the human body. It turns out to be fantastically easy. Almost everyone learns to sense aura energy in just the few minutes we spend at the "aura spot." You have probably seen the posters that look like nothing but a bunch of dots, but when you gaze at them, they pop up into 3-D, the "Magic Eye" posters. How we see the aura energy is the same way. There's a magic in gazing. We also feel the energies of the trees. Thank you Joe Hauser, for this opportunity to be of service, I feel very grateful to you. #whatsavortex #bodymagnetic http://www.montanavortex.com/

Golden Vortex Device: Using Magnetic Spin

The world’s most advanced personal energy devices
by Nick Nelson

Utilizing a magnet’s “spin” properties rather than it’s “strength” has led to the creation of some phenomenal personal energy access devices that are powered by Golden Vortex Technology™.
Golden Vortex™ (GV) devices are powered by our exclusive nature-based technology that was made possible after 40 years of advanced magnet and vortex research.
Nick Nelson, the inventor of the Golden Vortex™ technology and devices was published in the Journal of New Energy in 2001 after he delivered a paper on magnetic spin domains at the INE Symposium for New Energy conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Discovering these domains in magnets and learning how to configure and set them to the natural life supporting spin sequences found in natural Vortex locations, Mr. Nelson developed a whole new type of nature-based technology that started with the original Golden Vortex™. These patterns within vortexes are found throughout nature and work in harmony with every living energy system and biofield.
First making them for family and friends Mr. Nelson was soon receiving some phenomenal feedback with many of the same reported benefits experienced at some of the world’s most well known Vortex locations, such as freeing up static energy blockages in the body, providing quick pain relief, access to more energy and optimum health.
Golden Vortex™ devices started receiving a lot of international attention when Dan Shaw demonstrated one on the History Channel’s Brad Meltzer’s Decoded show in 2012, (Season 2, Episode 13) displaying the device’s unique “shrink and grow” effect. It can be a bit much for some to wrap their minds around, but if you take a trip to the Montana Vortex you will see a sign over the door in the back of the gift shop that reads “Management Is Not Responsible For World View Changes”. There is a reason why that sign is there and it is the same reason why it has been chosen here as a disclaimer. If you go in with an open mind you will likely see and experience things you may have never imagined were even possible. The same can be said for Golden Vortex™ devices.
Most users report that when wearing or holding their Golden Vortex™ device to their body they experience similar benefits in terms of increased energy, circulation, easier breathing, as well as the level of clarity and focus that many experience around these Vortex locations. Also commonly reported by wearers of Golden Vortex™ devices is pain relief and reduced inflammation, quicker healing times and better digestion. Many also use them with their drinking water, (as well as water for their pets and plants) by holding the flat unlettered side of the device up to the glass, bottle, bowl or container when filling. For gardening and greenhouses this is done by holding the flat side of the device to the garden hose when the water is running.

Golden Vortex™ devices are being worn by:

  • World top athletes in multiple professional sports. (Active and retired)
  • Doctors, nurses and health care practitioners, EMTs/Paramedics
  • Active and retired military and police officers
  • Martial artists, stuntmen & stuntwomen, American Ninja Warrior finalists
  • Yoga Teachers, Reiki and Qigong practitioners, Strength Coaches
  • Rock stars, singers, musicians, big screen superheroes and Oscar winning and nominated actors
  • CEOs, secretaries, office workers, farmers, laborers, life coaches, teachers and many others from nearly every other walk of life.
We do not pay for endorsements or testimonials but if you would like to take a minute or 2 to share your feedback, we really appreciate it. 60 Day Money Back Guarantee.

DISCLAIMER: These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. We do not make any medical claims for Golden Vortex™ products. These are magnetic devices sold for personal use and research only. It is not recommended to use magnetic devices if you are using a Pace-Maker, Defibrillator etc. Magnets can erase video, music, credit/debit card magnetic strip information and computer data. The magnets we use are very small and we have never heard a case of this happening with our devices but to be on the side of caution we do not recommend holding magnets of any type to your credit cards or memory cards/sticks etc.
