Sedona Vortex Rock Formations

Written by Gary Wonning

The formations in many areas resemble life forms of extinct animals, such as mastodons and various sea creatures. Often one can sense the presence of souls no longer occupying our earth, in both animal and human form. At times they seem to be communicating with spirit, trying to convey an important learning to those who would only listen.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

While we have advanced technically far superior to those that came before us, we have lagged behind in spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

He has published several books about his adventures.

Sedona Beginnings

Art Prints

 

Written by Gary Wonning

Sedona had rather humble beginnings, settled in the early 20th century, Sedona was named for Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly. 

Sedona was always known for her hospitality and industriousness, her mother ,Amanda Miller claimed to have made the name up because it sounded pretty.

Sedona’s parents were Phillip and Amanda Miller., she married Carl T. Schnebly on her 20th birthday in Gorin, Missouri. 

They eventually were the parents of six children. In 1901, they moved to Oak Creek Canyon and after two years of hard labor, they opened the first store, the first hotel, which Sedona ran, the first truck farm and the post office, and so the town began. 

Little did anyone know of the mysterious history of the town or the legends that wold surface.

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.

The Mystical Sedona Vortex

The portals of magical Sedona

by Gary Wonning

The four major vortexes in the area are Bell Rock, Airport Mesa, Boynton Canyon, and Cathedral or Castle Rock.

There are many vortexes on earth, but Indian legend states there are four major areas, two positive, Sedona and Kauai, Hawaii and two negative, The Bermuda Triangle, and Sussex County in England.

They are not positive and negative as in good or bad, but as in the poles of a battery. There are no good and bad energy or experiences, those characteristics are only perceived as good or bad by the human mind.

Sedona: My First Encounter With Bell Rock

 

Written by Gary Wonning

An excerpt from my book, The Portals of Sedona.

Soon we approached the Hwy 179 exit and began driving towards Sedona.  Suddenly, rounding a mountain, in clear view directly in front of us was a large red rock that looked like a bell.

I remember her saying something about it being Bell Rock, Well, that makes sense since it looks like a bell.

For whatever reason, I began to feel light headed, extremely hungry, and disoriented.

This is crazy, I just ate a big breakfast two hours ago, and I can’t be hungry. I continued looking at Bell Rock and the feelings intensified.

I stopped the car just short of Bell Rock for some photos of this captivating rock. I was extremely hungry and making an effort to stay grounded, I ate everything Emma brought from home, and I was still hungry.

The journey was just beginning.

Written by Gary Wonning

Red Planet Diner, now called the Et Encounter Diner and formerly called Phil and Eddies is a must see. Located on Highway 89A in West Sedona, the diner is decorated with a UFO theme.

The walls are curiously decorated with space aliens and other paraphernalia from other dimensions; it is a delight to observe while enjoying a delicious burger and listening to locals tell their tales of alien encounters.
