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
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
1) Find a vortex.
2) Record the GPS Coordinates.
3) Test the vortex
4) Report your vortex experience in text, pictures and

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
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
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
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.
