In the continental United States, a handful of places have been reported as being spiritual or energy vortexes. (The technical meaning of a vortex is that of a mass of spinning air, water, liquid, or energy that pulls things into its center. In the paranormal field, a vortex or wormhole is often described as a place where spirits travel freely between our world and theirs.) The reports of vortexes go all the way back to the very first documented inhabitants.
For 13,000 years or more, dozens of indigenous tribes considered vortex locations among the most sacred of their dwelling places. So, it’s no surprise that present-day sages, psychics, energy healers, shamans, and seekers also flock to these spots to experience what is unique about them. There, they receive the benefits of spending a day, a weekend, a season, or, as in my case, the rest of their lives, within these more intense energy fields.
Energy/Spiritual Vortexes in the United States
There’s Sedona, Arizona, which has four major vortexes and nearly a dozen minor ones within ten miles of city center. (I have visited Sedona many times and experienced the energetic vibrations, but the location is ham-handedly over-hyped, in my professional opinion.)
Rounding out the list, there’s Mt. Shasta in California, Crater Lake and the Oregon Vortex in Oregon, Denali National Park in Alaska, Garden of the Gods in Colorado, and Mount Mitchell in North Carolina.
Then there’s the one vortex location that the Deborah King Center has made our home: Ojai, California, located in the mountains north of Los Angeles between L.A. and Santa Barbara. With its seven distinct vortexes, Ojai has been a true lifesaver. (See The Thomas Fire below.)
