There are certain places in the world where the land and environment is such that one is more amenable to accessing certain inner states. These places are called power places.
There are a variety of power places, one is the energy vortexes of Sedona Arizona. Mount Shasta California is another power spot.
In addition to being a beautiful and serene place, Sedona has long been known as a spiritual power center. This is because the power that emanates from the vortexes produces some of the most remarkable energy on the planet. This energy is the reason Sedona is full of people that are “on the path”, that is, people who have made a commitment to grow and become as much as they can spiritually.
The vortexes in Sedona are swirling centers of subtle energy coming out from the surface of the earth.
For all these native peoples, Mt. Shasta was the center of creation. The Shasta people believed that the Great Spirit first created the mountain, by pushing down ice and snow through a hole from heaven, then using the mountain to step onto the earth. He created trees and called upon the sun to melt snow to provide rivers and streams. He breathed on the leaves of the trees and created birds to nest in their branches. He broke up small twigs and cast them into streams, where they became fish; branches cast into the forest became animals.
