Some places have a higher vibration, incredible energy, and are totally reinvigorating. When we get called to them, they are mystical journeys.
They invite us to cleanse, charge up, and perhaps redesign our whole being ... body, mind, and spirit, so that we can be better, do better, and feel better. Join us as we discover these mystical places so that we can explore and experience, if only in our minds.
Mount Shasta, located in northern California, offers one of the strongest energy vortexes in North America. Its dormant volcano draws thousands of spiritual seekers from around the globe each year. With a summit of 14,125 feet above sea level, Shasta is the second-highest peak in the Cascade Mountain Range. For anyone fortunate enough to look up at her, she is certainly majestic and powerful.
Shasta Mountain’s metaphysical and powerful Vortex
Our metaphysical ancient ancestors have taught us that a vortex is a gathering place of the earth’s sacred energy. They are portals to a higher dimension of consciousness. Could this be why those that visit Shasta express a common feeling of being “drawn” to its mountainside? Many have claimed they experience an overwhelming sensation of lightness and peace, as never experienced before. Thousands even come to her side for her healing and transcendence ability. They gather here to find themselves and to discover their life’s journey and purpose.
With this energy, often referred to as a “bliss,” comes abundant tales of unexplained mysteries that have challenged us for decades. Could they be true?

Native Americans generally call upon mountains as sacred centers of the universe, sometimes crediting them as the home of the creator. Shasta is certainly no exception. Mount Shasta has been the epicenter of many native nations, straddling the territories of Shasta, Wintu, Achumawi, Atsugewi, and Modic tribes. The Wintu tribe has been the most influenced by the majesty of Mount Shasta, tracing their origin to a sacred spring on the mountain. For many decades, August is the time when many of the Wintu come for their annual mystical celebration and retreat.

One common legend tells us of a hidden city beneath this glorious elevation, occupied by advanced beings from a lost continent. The city is called Telos, a crystal dwelling inside the mountain, inhabited by higher-dimensional beings called Lemurians.
The legend: Thousands of years ago, there was an ancient continent called Lemuria, located in the North Pacific Ocean. It is said that Lemuria was inhabited even before Atlantis. The two continents, Lemuria and Atlantis, fell into a thermonuclear war and sank their own continents. With this, the Lemurians fled into Mount Shasta where they remain today, within its belly.

There are a few stories from the 1940s. noting that the Lemurians were seen in town. Described as large seven-foot-tall beings, dressed in long white robes and sandals, they actually traded merchant supplies for chunks of gold. That was then. Today they remain a mystery and a story. Many even believe that the saucer shaped lenticular clouds that often gather at the summit of Mount Shasta are created by the Lemurians to disguise alien cargo ships that are docking at Telos.
