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 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.

The Rule of Four Point Five by Nick Nelson

While researching magnetism and vortex anomalies I recently unearthed an ancient, natural system of measurement, which in turn stirred an old aggravation about our modern systems. For instance, when driving in Canada, Metrics disturb my peace of mind by demanding I do needless arithmetic on the fly. At such times I happily curse those French Monks, who back in 1799 decreed that a lump of platinum and iridium constitute a “Kilogram”, and to bedevil my desire to follow the Canadian speed limit, a totally arbitrary length makes a “meter”.
The pound, inch, foot, yard, and mile make instantaneous, instinctive sense to me. I grew up with them. They were inculcated into me, just like they were for many of the folks in Canada, but now they and I have to put up with this foolish need to change for the sake of change. Why Metrics? I supposed because they are chopped up into tens. Big deal, and I’m not in the least moved by an observation that, “...a universally available atomic standard of 1,650,736.73 wavelengths of the red-orange light given off by the krypton-86 isotope under certain conditions,” has been finally found to justify this French ego trip.
I could insert my own ego. Any length halved into workable lengths of infinity can become a measuring system, so if I lay my arm out straight, mark from the tip of my middle finger to my shoulder then give this unit my last name, I’d have a Nelson. Yes, a Full Nelson. When I bend my arm at the elbow it becomes a Half Nelson. Silly, yes, but it could function if all agreed to use it. Agreement is the point. The so-called English System, obviously plagiarized from those who built the Pyramids (the Cubit) then oddly abandoned by the English, was agreed to for many millennium.
The ancients didn’t use arbitrary lengths like Metrics or Nelsons. Nature determined these things for them, and nature builds on a system that’s nine-based, not ten-based. The zero came later as a convenience that allows a series of nines (which is really a series of three, 3’s) to take on both a decimal condition and fractions; like Half Nelsons. Look around, there are only nine whole numbers, so ten is simply the number one restarted. Then 19 adds to 10, which is one, and then numbers like 28 and 37 and 91 are therefore also ones because they add to 10.
Since I grew up measuring things with inches, weighing things with pounds, and telling temperature with Fahrenheit I am irked at having to change from a system I instantly recognize to one that has to be laboriously translated back to the system I instinctively know so that I can finally comprehend the distance, weight, and temperature being reported. Mine is a small crusade, but one that has grown from simply an annoyance to a greater understanding of how old and intrinsic my instinctive (English) system of measures must actually be. Those who came before us put a handle on it, and the handle was the natural state of the Universe, a universe, by the way, that Metrics can’t describe without getting lost in a cascade of decimal positions, “... red-orange light from the Krypton-86 isotope..” (under certain conditions), indeed.
In my book, The Golden Vortex, Conscious Publishing, 2000, I reported part of this from what I had learned while investigating and working in a place called, The House of Mystery at the Oregon Vortex.
Up in the woods near the small southwestern town of Gold Hill, Oregon, this famous roadside attraction has been entertaining crowds of mystified tourists since 1930. The so-called mystery house is what’s left of a one-hundred-year old shack that was once used by a gold mining company as an assay building, but the main attraction that causes folks to return again and again is the Vortex. The shack sits very near the center of the 165-foot circle of the Vortex, and many years ago the house slid from its foundation ending up sideways and twisted on a steep hillside, and thus the Mystery began. The very slanted environment of the badly out-of-plum shack creates highly interesting optical illusions, such as balls appearing to roll uphill and heavy weights hanging crooked. The shack and its illusions have been imitated many times around the world, but the Vortex creates its own real mysteries of a type that only a very few other tourist sites can claim.
Beyond the anomalies, such as people growing or shrinking depending on the direction they move, or brooms standing by themselves as they lean into the force field, there are more profound discoveries; like points inside the Vortex that exhibit very strong electrical induction properties. At these positions a magnet dangling at the end of a string will spin, and the closer to the ground the magnet gets the faster it spins. I have spent about 30 years trying to mold permanent magnets into a stand-alone motor, and two of these years were taken up by working at the Oregon Vortex hunting induction spots. The most interesting of these spinning positions is located on the circumference of a nine-foot diameter circle at the center axis of the greater vortex. I call this small area the Dead Zone, because inside its circle no one changes height, leans to the north, or gets sick to the stomach. Compared to the rest of the vortex, like the eye of a hurricane, it is also a calm zone.
The induction spot itself does not just sit on the circumference of a 9-foot circle, it spins internally and as it spins it also orbits the 27-foot circumference in about two hours. The induction spot straddles the line of demarcation and measures about 39 inches, and its orbit is at a radius of four and a half feet; the same 4.5 measurement or ratio that just may be the secret to the riddle of the Universe.
But I get ahead of myself. The four point five solution to the riddle of the Universe didn’t begin for me at the Oregon Vortex, but showed up in a magnet motor experiment. Sooner or later everyone who pursues the grail of free energy using magnets runs into an absolutely maddening problem. The experimenter finds himself inextricably tangled up in the process in a very real fashion, his body skewing the experiment by causing a device to work only because a human being is part of the machine. It sounds ridiculous but is a very real fact. Those of us who attempt the “impossible” by making a motor with nothing more than permanent magnets eventually have to tackle the problem of how to get the human being out the circuit, so the motor can run on its own.
After many failures, I took a different look at the problem and instead of trying to extract the human from the circuit, I looked at how I might replace the human in the circuit. The point had been reached where the nature of the field made by the intrusion of my hand in the motor had been determined, and on the way toward finding what this missing increment might be other than myself, I inadvertently answered the easier question: How close must the hand be to the machine to cause the effect? The answer was that the electrical field around the hand should be within five inches of the device, and refinements of the experiment showed that the exact distance should be four and a half inches.
One of the most interesting things about the inventing process is that the trail forks without warning.
It works like this:
When the human hand and its aura come within 4.5 inches of a properly constructed magnet device, spin will occur.
Three or four disk magnets of no certain size with their centers placed 4.5 inches from each other in a proper geometric pattern will cause a rotation of two armatures in counter rotating directions. Vary this distance by an eight of an inch and no rotation will occur.
When the magnets used in the pattern are too large to allow them to fit without overlapping each other then the next distance apart becomes 4.5 feet, or 54 inches, which is a transposition of 45, and when 54 is divided by 4.5 the answer is 12, an English foot. When I saw this I was hit by a flash of that spinning and orbiting entity at the axis center of the Oregon Vortex on its 4.5 foot radius.
The Oregon Vortex itself sits on a demarcation line of a larger vortex whose center is near the town of Gold Hill, Oregon, and as the crow flies, the town is 4.5 miles from the Vortex.
A greater vortex surrounds the nine-mile circle around Gold Hill, and its diameter is 54 miles (the same transposition of 45), and around this vortex is a corona, one-sixth the diameter of the vortex, or nine miles across, which means the radius of the corona is 4.5 miles.
A even larger vortex surrounds the 54-mile circle as part of a line of other 54-mile circles, and it measures 216 miles, plus a 36 mile corona and all its dimensions can be divided evenly by 4.5.
Spaced evenly about the Planet, their centers at about 30 degrees N and S latitude are ten zones, or larger vortexes, one of which is the Bermuda Triangle. These zones or vortexes measure about 649 miles across with a 108-mile corona. 108 miles is the radius of the 216-mile vortex in Southern Oregon and Northern California, and each of these 10 Bermuda Triangle type vortexes are about 4.5 thousand miles apart. Supporters of the Metric System shouldn’t get excited learning about these TEN vortexes, because by factoring in the North and South poles as part of the complete planetary system there are really 12 vortexes.
What I’m discussing may have something to do with what’s known as Bode’s law, which purports to predict Planetary distances in astronomical units out from the Sun by building a numerical sequence of 0, 6, 12, 24, etc., adding the number 4 to each number, and then dividing the results by 10. Did Bode ever explain why it was necessary to add four? It’s not 4.5, but...
The Sun’s nearest Galactic neighbor is the dual star system of Alpha and Proxima Centauri ... about 4.3 light years distant.
When dealing with progressively larger distances the rule wavers a bit, but even so it seems likely that the radius of the Universe is going to be ultimately found to be 4.5 ... something.
And none of this information is a conclusion a blizzard of Metric decimal positions would have revealed. So there, Canada ... France.

Anyway, now that I’m free of chasing 4.5 all over the Continuum I can get back to the magnet motor. Let’s see ... the magnetic aspect of the human aura has a limit of 4.5 inches ... and 4.5 inches between magnets produces spin ... exactly 4.5 inches, regardless of the size of the magnets.

What is a vortex?

Guest post by Nick Nelson

In the classical sense, a vortex is anything that swirls around. A hurricane, a tornado, the Solar System, or spiral galaxies are vortex forms. Even such mundane things as water going down a bathtub drain are vortexes, or as some prefer, vortices. In the sense of this exhibit, and a very few other such attractions open to the public, a vortex is a whirlpool of energy. It is a mathematically exact position on the Earth’s surface that does not conform to contemporary scientific description, a place where gravity is subtly altered, time runs a little behind the rest of the world, and seemingly impossible distortions occur in physical space/time reality. These vortexes normally cannot be optically perceived, but the effects can be seen, and sometimes felt.

How many vortexes are there?

The Universe itself is the largest vortex, and it is made up of an infinity of progressively smaller vortexes, so the answer is that there are an infinite number of vortexes. Of the Grave Creek type of Vortex, which is around 60 feet in diameter, to the Gold Hill Vortex, 165 feet, there are probably hundreds in existence, but only a small number have been discovered.

Can I be harmed by the vortex?


There have been reports of slight dizziness or minor nausea, but the great majority of visitors feel nothing out of the ordinary. No one has ever complained of long-term harm, but conversely some people have claimed minor aliments cured in a “magic spot”. The only danger linked to exposure of a vortex of this type is that it has been known to cause reevaluations of worldviews. Remember, vortexes, however odd or bizarre, are natural phenomena.

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.

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.


http://www.earthwisdomfoundation.net/About_Blue_Thunder.html


"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."

Abduction to the Ninth Planet : A True Report by the Author Who Was Physically Abducted to Another Planet 2nd Edition

by Michel Desmarquet
"In June of 1987, I was abducted by Extra-terrestrial Beings, highly evolved spiritually, and also the most technologically developed in our galaxy. They took me PHYSICALLY to their planet on a journey that had a time lapse of nine Earthly days. It was not an Astral travel, nor an Astral contact - I was there with my Physical Body, incredible as it may seem. By transubstantiation, we traveled through the light barrier, moving in and out of space and time, instead of moving through it. For our physical bodies of course, this is unexplainable, but I witnessed it.."

Window flashing tape? Inslulative expanding foam? No, no.


On further consideration, we decided this window flashing tape is designed for fully insulated houses, and would be overkill on a shed.
Insulating foam: we don't use it. It's environmentally unfriendly and doesn't age well, old foam just disintegrates everywhere. On a shed, unfinished on the inside, it would be exposed, and unsightly, too.

Buildings that breathe


You breathe to live, and to feel comfortable in a building, the building must also 'breathe'. Unfortunately in most modern construction, air (and light) are not given the consideration they deserve. Too many builder-designers ignore passive ventilation and natural lighting and rely on mechanical ventilation and artificial lights. So it makes sense to place a vent in the floor of the shed, to draw in air from underneath, to take advantage of the cool shade there.

Trim begins


We're using 4" trim on the corners. The pieces on the front and back protrude slightly, thereby providing an edge that takes the (paintable) caulking nicely.

We use 3" trim on the windows.
The trim is pre-primed, field cuts are treated.

We used a table saw to cut a groove on the window trim so the trim sits flat over the window nail fins.

Barn door assembly


We chose to put the horizontal pieces of the "Z" at the top and bottom of the door, rather than partway in, to strengthen the door at the stress points where it hangs, and where it extends below and hits the floor. In case we decide to shorten the door slightly, we then raised the bottom horizontal by 1". (The door is shown on its side.)
The door is tongue and groove pine. We glue seven (7) 6" slats together for each door, nominally 3' wide.
The tongue and groove are removed from the sides of the door. The top of the Z boards we cut at a 15-degree angle to shed water.
Then the Z is screwed on from the back (the inside).

The door will receive this clear waterproofing, surfaces that will be inaccessible are treated before assembly.
