In the early 1970's I visited Sedona, Arizona for the first time. Sedona's vortex reputation was not common knowledge yetand it was a sleepy little high desert town. State Route 89A was a rural two lane highway with very little traffic.
During my first Sedona visit I took a hike in the 'wilderness'. Well, it seemed like a wilderness hike to someone from Chicago! I walked north from the King's Ransom hotel on Highway 179 to what used to be the 'Y' at 89A and then walked west up 89A to the area where New Frontiers is now located. At that time it was a strip mall with the Flicker Shack movie theater, an import shop, a food store and other shops.
While walking on 89A I had a very unusual and interesting experience. It's hard to describe. I felt as if time and space had dissolved. What I felt was so profound that I drew this image spontaneously afterwards while trying to capture the essence of my vision. The drawing started out with what was to become the hair (or brain).
I recently met Benjamin Lonetree who is an electrical engineer. His website: SedonaAnomalies.com. Originally he was somewhat skeptical of Sedona's vortex reputation and decided to research the area to find out what was responsible for what he now calls the Sedona Effect.
The two maps below show the approximate
boundaries of the geomagnetic area.
This is a video of Benjamin Lonetree explaining the Sedona Effect. After watching his video and looking at my drawing once again, I can see examples of what he calls “outflow and inflow of magnetic energy” illustrated in my drawing. I had always wondered what I had drawn, although on some level I knew.
In this video Benjamin describes the Magnetic Intensity of Sedona.
Sedona is where Mother Earth speaks
“The bottom line in all of this: it shows how connected we are to the planet.
How much a part of her that we are.
There's a lot of speculation that the area up here in Sedona could be a large transmitter or a large receiver, that's really a leap-of-faith on my point and I haven't developed the equipment to see that's a reality, but give me time and I'll work on it!”

Connie's note: It wouldn't surprise me at all to discover that Sedona is both a transmitter and a receiver!
My Sedona drawing sat in a box for almost 40 years until 2012 when I dug it out and took a long look at it. Very interesting! Ironically, when I've glanced at this drawing over the years, I never did particularly like the way I represented the mountains in Sedona. Although now that I have placed a photo of Sedona above the drawing, I can see the resemblance between my drawing and the mountains very clearly!
Sedona, we love you and thanks to Benjamin Lonetree for his sensitive and scientific view into the mysteries of the magnetic anomolies of Sedona.
One of my friends jokingly wrote the following quote after he read the above information: “Are you implying that long-term exposure to ambient magnetic fields leads to New Age mystic chicanery?”
My answer: “That possibility definitely does exist!” (wink, wink)
