Sedona , Bell Rock Encounter

Written by Gary Wonning

“clumps” of energy I observed were actually extraterrestrial souls who were forming up physical bodies by gathering elements from the earth’s environment so they could survive on planet Earth.

I learned later that it was at this time I ascended into a UFO above the rock and met the same aliens I had encountered when I was seventeen years old.

Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

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.

In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our 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.

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.

Sedona: Bell Rock

Written by Gary Wonning

 

Undoubtedly, the most famous landmark in Sedona is Bell Rock. Quietly guarding the entrance to Sedona in the town of Village of Oak Creek, this vortex holds a mystery all its own.

Bell Rock is located on Hwy 179, just north of the Village of Oak Creek (5 miles south of the junction of Hwy 89A and 179). Its distinct shape makes it easy to spot and parking and trails are clearly visible. You will notice that the energy is strong as soon as you get out of your car. You don’t have to do any climbing to feel the energy at this vortex. Notice the twisted Juniper trees all over Bell Rock. The energy at this vortex is very powerful and strengthens all three parts: the masculine side, the feminine side, and the balance.

Lessons Learned in Sedona: Our Spiritual Life

The portals of Sedona

Written by Gary Wonning

So many people are  wrapped up in pursuing the material things in life they forget about what is really important.

We all like, and deservedly so want nice things in our life, and we deserve those. But in the process, we forget what is really important.

I lived in a town where almost everyone one worked at the local casket factory where hundreds of caskets were produced every day.

I have seen many of them roll off the assembly line, I have yet to see one with a trailer hitch on the back. We can’t take our earthly possessions with us.

We need to understand it is our spiritual life that is the most important. What the soul learns it retains. The physical, material part of life is secondary, whatever we have, we will eventually lose, wealth or poverty isn’t important, it how we react to it, is what is important.

It seems to me, in most cases, the people who are the most successful in life and lead the most fulfilling lives are the ones who adhere to their spiritual beliefs, regardless if they are Christian, Jewish , or one of the may other beliefs in our world.

When we have our spiritual life in order, the physical life will fall in line and reality will become just what we would want.

Sedona: Chapel of the Holy Cross

The portals of Sedona

On our way into town, we had driven past the Chapel of the Holy Cross, so we decided to return  to the Village of Oak Creek to visit this magnificent shrine..

Influenced by the Empire state Building in 1932, the chapel was inspired and commissioned by Marguerite Staude. She first attempted to build it in Budapest Hungary, but the project was aborted because of the start of world war two.

With the help of Lloyd Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright she decided to build it in Sedona.

 Barry Goldwater, senator of Arizona, obtained a special permit to enable her to build it in the Coconino National Forest at a cost of $300,000.

The chapel was then  completed in 1956.

Cathedral Rock in Sedona Arizona

Many country and western stars, as well as others have filmed videos, photo shoots, and commercials.

It is also one of the four major vortexes in the area. 

All the major vortexes have either a male or female energy, and  Cathedral Rock is female.

The vortex is actually along the east side of Oak Creek as you walk past Cathedral Rock.

Vortexes are powerful and transformational energy centers that are located at specific sites throughout Sedona, Arizona. Vortexes are the intersections of natural electromagnetic earth energy, also known as ley lines. 

Twisted trees indicate the presence of vortex energy, you will noticed twisted Juniper trees on all the major vortexes. 

Along with being a major energy source, it is also one of the most beautiful locations in the world.

Sedona’s Rock Formations

The portals of Sedona

Written by Gary Wonning

Gazing out over the large expanse of landscape visible before your eyes, water level marks are visible at various levels of the red rocks. From this it is evident this land was at one time submerged beneath the sea. 

What tremendous land changes could have created this land that  now rises forty-five hundred feet above sea level, and why is there white crystal beach sand present at this altitude?

It is for the imagination to determine what the landscape looked like before and after the waters subsided that created this beautiful landscape, and what did the changes do to create the mysterious events that regularly occur in this unique environment?
