What is a Vortex?

We do not have a clue. To date, Vortex Hunters does not have any definitive proof that vortexes exist at all. But, that is why we started this web site.

This is what we have found out so far:

Some vortexes, or vortices, like a few locations in Sedona, Arizona, are reported to promote a sense a well-being to those that are in tune with its energies. This type of vortex is called an energy vortex.

Other types of vortex claims include:

  • Paranormal portals that act as doorways to the afterlife-- or other dimensions
  • Vortexes at the convergence of ley lines
  • Sites of ancient rituals like Stonehenge, Machu Picchu, Chichen Itza
  • Vortexes associated with crop circles
  • Centers of UFO/USO activity

What Have Visitors Experienced at Vortex Sites?

  • Wellbeing
  • Rejuvenation
  • Relaxation
  • Insight
  • Spiritual awareness

Possible Explanations for a Vortex

  • Earth's magnetic field
  • Ley Lines
  • Unknown type of energy
  • Other dimensions
  • Limestone deposits
  • Sacred grounds
  • Extra Terrestrial

What the Experts Say About Vortexes

"The explanation for vortexes lies more at the boundaries of known science, rather than in electromagnetic descriptions or gender related labels." (Source: A. Sanders Jr., Scientific Vortex Information)

"A Vortex is a giant magnet of energy that is either positive or negatively charged. Positive charged vortexes have feminine attributes: nurturing, calming and tranquil or yin. Negative vortexes are masculine, active, energizing or yang." (Source: Suzanne McMillan, Founder of Sedona Vortex Tours)

Other Vortex Theories

  • Juniper trees twist in the presence of an energy vortex
  • A man-made vortex can be created
  • Vortexes can flow up from the Earth or inward


Vortex Hunting

Vortex Safety

Some vortexes are located in dangerous areas, other vortexes are reported to present dangers of their own. Before embarking on an investigation, prepare yourself by researching the vortex and the location.

Vortexes can be located in areas that require hiking or climbing. Do not attempt to investigate a vortex, unless you can safely access the area.

Pack accordingly when investigating in remote areas outdoors. Bring along a GPS device, compass, map, water, food, clothing, batteries, etc., the same items you would bring on any outdoor trip.

How to Be a Vortex Hunter

1) Find a vortex.

2) Record the GPS Coordinates.

3) Test the vortex

4) Report your vortex experience in text, pictures and video

Vortex Hunter Tips

Hunt vortexes in groups of 2 or more.

Tell someone where you are going and when you intend to return.

Respect the environment.

Leave an investigation site in the same condition as when you entered.

Get permission before investigating on personal property.

Good Vortex Hunters are skeptical, but have an open mind.

Increase the validity of a vortex with the right equipment and by documenting your experience with pictures and video.

Vortex Hunter Equipment

A handy piece of equipment for a Vortex Hunter is a handheld GPS device. The GPS unit is used to find vortexes on the Global Vortex Map and to record the GPS location of a new vortex.


How to Find a Vortex

Vortex guides can be excellent sources for accurate vortex locations.

Where to look for vortexes - Here are some things that vortexes may have in common

Earth's magnetic field

Limestone deposits

Ley lines

Sacred grounds

Beautiful surroundings

Unpopulated area

Multiple spirits

Once you have found a general area where vortexes might exist, use your senses and your intuition to guide you to a vortex site. Use a bioscan meter, dowsing rods or pendulum to help you find the center of the vortex.

How to Test a Vortex

Different vortexes require different type of test methods.

Traditional test equipment devices can be ineffective in sensing the unknown energies claimed to be present at some vortexes.

Often, the best evidence of a vortex is how people feel when they are in one. Vortex Hunters has developed a method of measuring a vortex indirectly, by monitoring the body's reaction to a vortex.

The EDA Bioscan unit is a device that measures the body's reaction to a vortex by sensing small changes in your skin conductance, known as electrodermal activity (EDA).

We use the EDA Bioscan to help find the center of a vortex and to test its strength and validity.

Testing a Vortex with an EDA Bioscan - Measure the your biofeedback with the EDA Bioscan in a test location outside the range of the vortex, (for a baseline reading), and then take readings at the suspected vortex location.

Try and make the conditions in the two locations as similar as possible (relaxed, same clothing, same body position), and perform the tests within one hour of each other. If you are in the sun in one test, make sure you are not in the shade for the other.

Some vortexes are claimed to energize and others to soothe, so any measurable difference in the results, up or down, could point to a vortex.

Perform the same procedures on test subjects that do not know the location of your vortex. Do not inform them of which location they are at, (inside or outside the vortex), and measure the results.

Digital/Video Camera - For video and pictures. Your pictures and video should inspire others to visit and to guide them to your vortex.

Other methods of finding and testing vortexes:

Dowsing Rods or Pendulums - Use dowsing rods/divining rods or pendulums for locating vortexes.

Compass - Small changes in compass readings could point to a vortex.

Vortex Antennas - Energy Plates claim to aid in the investigation of the effects of energy (known or unknown).

Medicine Wheels - Some claim that Medicine Wheels can help make you more receptive to vortex energy.

Animals - It is claimed that birds can become disoriented in a vortex and that cats may have the ability to sense a vortex.

Scientific Equipment

Although vortexes have not been detected by standard equipment, scientific measuring devices can eliminate other causes of vortex-like experiences, like a high EMF field.

EMF meter - Electromagnetic Field meter, (sometimes referred to as an EMF Detector) is a scientific instrument for measuring electromagnetic radiation. EMF meters are often used in paranormal investigations.

Magnetometer - A magnetometer is used to map the Earth's magnetic field.

Digital Audio Recorder - A Digital Audio Recorder can be used in paranormal investigations to capture EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomenon).

Temperature measurement - Infrared, thermal cameras and hand-held infrared surface and ambient temperature sensors to detect changes in the environment, such as "cold spots", which some believe accompany paranormal activity.

Geiger counter - to measure fluctuations in radiation which some believe will point to a disturbance in spirit energy.

Ion Meters - to detect an excess of negative ions which some feel are associated with paranormal activity.

Motion sensors - to detect possible anomalous movement within a given area, or to assist in creating a controlled environment where any human movement is detected.

Air quality monitoring equipment - to assess the levels of gases such a carbon monoxide which are thought contribute to reports of paranormal activity.

Infrasound monitoring equipment - to assess the level of sound vibrations below 20Hz which is thought to contribute to reports of paranormal activity.

Vortex Ranking

Each vortex is ranked on its history, location, research, and the experiences of visitors there.
