Bell Rock after a rare snowfall
Driving into Sedona, Arizona on Hwy 179, the first object coming into view is Bell Rock,resembling a giant Hershey’s Kiss, it leaves no doubt you have just entered Red Rock Country!
Directly across the road from Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock is one of the most prominent landmarks in the Verde Valley, a parking area near the base gives one a chance to take in the once in a lifetime view.
The area has been improved in recent years , several hiking trails have been built to accommodate the experienced as well as inexperienced hikers.
One is on his own if hiking to the top, it is relatively easy until the upper level is reached, from there only the experienced climber should proceed. Regardless of how far one goes, the view is spectacular and is well worth the effort!
There are many legends concerning the “magic” powers associated with the Bell Rock Vortex.
If you are bent to this perspective, a vortex is a swirling concentration of energy emanating from the earth that can produce a number of attributes.
Various people experience different sensations, from past life recall, UFO visitations, and healings, while most people sense nothing at all.
Rather you experience anything or not, it is a beautiful formation and is only the beginning of the visual treat about to be seen while traveling in the Sedona area.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search,at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source. I began taking notes for this book over thirty years ago, at the time, writing a book was the farthest thing from my mind. My only thought was to have a journal to read over when I got older. As a result, I didn’t record some of my references, many of the references were from Aboriginal and Mayan elders themselves, many of which has been the victim of the ravages of time. Hence my book is short on references, but long on experience,
