PLANETARY NETWORKS & VORTICES
The Lost River Valleys of Idaho had a 7.3 earthquake in October, 1983, with over 400 after-shocks in
the first three days alone. Talk about "unstable equilibrium". After the quakes, my friend Patty and I felt
that something enclosed beneath the geographical area around Arco had been released by the earth-
quakes. Patsy was studying the Middle East and ancient Egyptian pyramids while I was investigating
Mexican, Native American and Mound-builder pyramids and temples. Both of us absorbed everything
we could find on Tibetan and Southwestern Native American sites as well. Neither of us was sure why
we were doing this, but we felt that old, mysterious Seekers drive. We just HAD to find out something.
Then Patty discovered that when we drew lines on the world globe between the sites we had studied,
they formed a series o f equilateral triangles connected in a belt extending around the world near the
Tropic of Cancer, from fifteen to thirty-five degrees, north latitude. Jane, friend and neighbor, confided
she felt odd sensations when driving past the three huge pyramidal buttes__ now inactive volcanic cra-
ters, rising abruptly from the Arco high desert flatness. Patty and I had similar feelings and our curiosity
North American Vortices
The end of December that year, I went alone into the southern California Mohave desert to meditate.
On a high ridge, I sat on a rock, closed my eyes, opened to the planetary grid and asked Spirit to send
whatever was appropriate for the moment. Ten minutes later, I opened my eyes again and was startled
to observe an entirely different scene than when I first sat down__ in front of me rose a huge, horizontal
ridge of red rock towers, with pine trees and shrubs. "What's this?", I inquired of my inner self, who rep-
lied: "You will be in Sedona before the season is out." The red rocks dissolved, and the Mohave des-
ert browns came back in focus. June, too, w as intuitively sent to Sedona, which had become a mecca
for artists, psychics, geomancers and healers.
Hal and I had been in Sedona ten years earlier on the art show and gallery circuit when it was known
primarily as an art center. After visiting the galleries and shops that year, we drove up Oak Creek Can-
on, a favorite spot for local painters. I sat directly on the ground and worked on a watercolor there until
near dark. I felt a mystical, soothing energy about the place a nd came away refreshed in some indefin-
iable way__ as if I had absorbed something from deep within those red rocks.
This was before I knew about Sedona's powerful vortices. In fact, Oak Creek Canyon was the first__ its
purpose was attunement to Mother Earth. Now-a-days, people come from around the world to visit the
astounding beauty of the red rock formations and experience the sacred healing powers and time porta-
ls of the numerous vortices. Oak Creek Canyon was devastated by wildfires in 2006, purifying it for use
as a sacred site where people will gather to live in the New Earth Reality.
The 1994 visit to Sedona began with our arrival on March 21st, the Vernal Equinox. We found June &
George at the Dead Horse Ranch State Park, but its RV campground was full. We would have to go
into town to the Wal-Mart parking lot for the night, t hen bring the rig back by 8 AM in hopes that some-
one had vacated a space__ but there were three outfits ahead of us on the waiting list. After visiting our
friends in the campground for about an hour, a ranger appeared to tell us we were "the luckiest campers
he'd ever seen.". Some poor fellow had become down with recurring malaria and left for home. Since we
were already there with our rig, we were given his space.
It was a beautiful resort along the Verde River, comfortable and convenient. Huge pine trees towered
among pink and rose-red rocks, wildlife and birds darted through the underbrush, and at night, the old
cliff-side, mining town of Jerome glimmered two thousand feet above us, like a mothership hovering be-
a canopy of stars.
The largest vortex ever seen in the Sedona area was then developing in Sycamore Canyon between
Cottonwood and Sedona, only a few miles from our campsite__ this was why we were here. I got little
sleep that night; information about future technologies poured into my awareness for hours.
A Creativity Vortex
We moved back to Gooding, Idaho in 1998. Magic Valley in south-central Idaho, with its Creativity Vortex
had an uncommonly large percentage of resident artists and innovators. The Sage Brush Art Guild of
painters, began in the 1950's and recently moved from producing only material art-forms to creating on
higher levels. They found public exhibition space for school art classes, collected and sent a truckload of
art and school supplies to war-torn Iraqi school children, donated art books to libraries, provided free or
low cost art instruction to local artists and volunteered as after-school, enrichment-program art teachers
at the elementary school. Funds were donated yearly to the school art departments in the county. They
supervised the annual Gooding County Art Exhibit, open to all Idaho artists, for over thirty-five years. In
March, 2007, the Sage Brush Artists merged with the Snake River Artisans group of crafters to sha-
re meeting space and asistance and exhibition space with the yearly County Art Exhibit.
The "Eye" (center) of this Creativity Vortex sits at Thousand Springs near Hagerman, Idaho, where
the Snake River Aquifer waters from the Lost Rivers tumble from the black lava canyon walls into the
lower Snake River. There, the international organization, The Nature Conservancy, conducts experim-
ents in water purification using only native wetland plants. They succeeded in returning the
chemical-laden irrigation runoff from the north side of the canyon to 98% purity before it returned to
the Snake River. They hold an Art Festival every September to raise funds.
Since we returned to Gooding, Idaho, a University of the Arts was established in Sun Valley, Idaho
with its subsidiary, the Western States College of Performing Arts and Humanities centered at the
old Schubert Theater Opera House in Gooding. It offered classes in the Performing Arts, Film Technol-
ogies, Professional Wrestling, Feng Shui and Healing Arts. They frequently showed mystical and alter-
native movies such as "Indigo" and "Indigo Evolution" plus films the college itself created. They hosted
an afternoon session with Kryon and featured well-known musical groups. Not bad, for a town of only
3500 people. In 2007, the college relocated 35 miles away to Twin Falls, Idaho, more centrally located in
Magic Valley. The old theater is still used occasionally for local cultural events.
