|What is out in these woods is still a mystery, but quite fascinating. I and my investigators have been surrounded and run out of these woods by Spirits or ET (in the form of orbs), pushed by
an invisible force, seen the red eyes looking at us out of the darkness and photographed tree spirits. Although these woods are not for the faint hearted, it is highly recommended for those
that truly want to 'experience' paranormal phenomenon!

I was extremely lucky to have captured such an illusive creature on camera.
This is what the folk lores of Scotland and Ireland are all about!

They are called gnomes (of the earth), sylphs (of the
air), salamanders(of fire), and undines (of water). h.p. blavatsky,in the theosophical glossary, explains that all the lower invisible
beings generated on the 5th, 6th and 7th planes of our terrestrial atmosphere are called "elementals" including fairies, elves,
leprechauns, dwarfs, trolls, kobolds, peris, devas, djins ,sylvans,
satyrs, fauns, brownies, nixies and pixies, goblins, moss people, mannikins, and others who belong to this classification.
According to popular belief, there are numerous secret subterranean passages whose entrances are guarded by elementals which
assume the shape of rocks or other natural features.

One evening as we were out investigating the
trail for our haunted woods walk, our
investigator, Kristi Rogers (in front) was
pushed by an invisible force. She said it felt like
a hand reached out and pushed her. She
turned to me , said 'don't ask questions...just
turn around and get out of here ...NOW..' As
she said this, I took a photo of what she may
have encountered. To the right, you will see
the huge orbs that were next to her and Margo.
Look in her eyes..you can see her seriousness
about wanting me to get us out of there.
Margo, however did not feel this presense and
as you see is completely 'clueless' as far as
what just happened to Kristi.
However...Margo was the one that saw red
eyes watching us from the darkness several
times while on the walk.
|Note the large orbs in the background.
This is the investigation that got me to consider wearing 'depends' !
We were about 1/2 way down the path deep in the wooded area and I experienced
a phenomena that I had only heard about. I believe what I experienced was a
ghost actually walking through me. It felt like the 3d molecular structure of my body
was actually altering, scattering my molecules to the wind. The experience was so
intense it buckled my knees. I yelled at the investigators to turn around and get
the 'L' out of there. As I took off, my legs turned to rubber and it felt like I was
going to go down. Within moments however I had recovered and we left for the car
BUT as we were getting out of there..Kristi and Margo yells out 'we feel them
I also felt the sensation. I told them to start singing to keep their minds off what we
were going through.
As we got to the end of the woods, Kristi turned around quickly and shot a photo of
what was behind us. As you see in photo to your left.. we were right, they were
surrounding us and chasing us out of the woods! But why???

Notice in this photo how the tress
seem to bleed or 'drip'. This is what
we look for when searching for a
vortex. I found this vortex while at the
haunted woods during a day trip. The
same day as I was able to
photograph the tree spirit.
FINDING A VORTEX
Go to a place that has always brought you meaning, or one to which you respond emotionally, perferably when not many people are around to distract your awareness.
The best time to experience a vortex is at dusk or dawn. The seperation between worlds is blurred at these transition times, or when it's foggy (when the waters meets the land)...or on
solstices and equinoxes (when the seasons meet). This is a time of great powre.
After you have found a likely spot, allow your mind to become quiet in order to absorb the surrounding energy. Quiet your mind by listening to the wind or the wild life around you ..or watch the
tree branches touch the sky.
Empty your mind by putting aside your thoughts of work and problems in life. By clearing your mind answers will come to you on things that may have troubled you.
Imagine that you extend into the ground and beyond your head, that you blend into the Universe. Now Feel.
If there is a vortex there, you will feel the earth energy rise into your from below opening your mind. You will experience sensations ie. sadness, peace , wonderment, etc. The awareness of
your surrounding will heighten . Colors will become more vibrant, objects more detailed. ie the sky more blue or you will notice the delicateness of the flower or its beauty. You will feel the earth
energy rise into you from below opening your mind
If you find a masculine vortex, words, sentences, thoughts and ideas might rise in you. If the essence of the vortex is feminine, you may experience a feeling of being open, yielding and
And if both male and female energies surround you you might become infused with a sense of wholeness.
Vortexs can be found anywhere ..even in your own backyard or home. Sometimes you don't even need to go out looking for your vortex, it will jump out at you without any preconceptions on
You will be minding your business, with vortexs the fartherest thing from your mind, when suddenly you will be infused with emotions or thoughts that are coming at you from everywhere.
Trees are very high energy. The Ancients believed that forests of oak held great power and magic. They can even influence the people that live around them.
If you have questions go to an oak tree. Site with your back to it and your eyes closed. Trees are wise and have much to tell. Their tops reach to the sky and their roots ground them to mother
A beautiful flow of energy comes from these magestic spirits.
At the foci of energy Earth, as it forms 'in explicate reality (our world as we sense it), reveals the presence of these foci, or vortices, by -nations of geologic significance: These formations are
volcanoes, high mountains, hot springs, mineral deposits, ends of sand spits near the ocean, sea mounts, forks of rivers, river mouths, large falls, deep gorges, rock outcroppings, and
possibly others. Some dams are located on vortices, and often mineral deposits, especially gold, denote a vortex.
Many ley lines follow the great faults and waterways on the surface of our earth.
The haunted woods are protected by the guardians. Among the guards are 'Sprites'. They can stand among the trees and the leaves and perfectly blend in while they watch 'unnoticed' those
See how many Sprites you can find in the following photo.
To get you started I will put x's on several sprites.
In the Photo to the left is Kristi Rogers walking down the path
of the haunted woods. She tells me she feels something in
front of her. I take a photo...Sure enough appearing in the
photo is a 'rod'.
While walking the haunted trail don't be
surprised if you feel something following
you..or 'hitching a ride'.
Take a look at Kristi Rogers Back Shoulder!
|KRISTI ROGERS REPORT ON HAUNTED WOODS
THESE WOODS HAVE A LOT OF ENERGY. THE FIRST TIME GOING TO THESE WOODS I WAS ALMOST OVER WHELMED BY ALL THE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF ENERGY AND ACTIVITY. IN
MY OPINION THERE IS ALOT OF GOOD AND BAD CIRCULATING IN THESE WOODS. AFTER A MEDITATION THAT I DID I FOUND OUT THAT THERE IS A LITTLE GIRL WHO HAD BEEN
MURDERED AND HER BODY WAS PUT IN THESE WOODS. NOW SHE IS LOOKING FOR HER MOTHER AND WANTS TO LEAVE BUT THERE IS SOMETHING HOLDING HER BACK. ONE DAY
MY COUSIN AND I WENT THERE TO TRY TO TALK TO HER.. I KNEW SHE WAS THERE LISTENING BECAUSE EVERYTIME WE WOULD ASK HER A QUESTION A VERY STRONG GUST OF
WIND CAME THRU..I HAVE ALSO EXPERIENCED THE NOT SO NICE SPIRITS. I WAS SHOVED AND TOLD "GET OUT" ON ONE OCCASION. EVERY TIME GOING THERE I HAD THIS STRONG
FEELING OF BEING WATCHED. I ALSO KNOW THAT THERE ARE MANY VORTEXES IN THOSE WOODS. MOUNDS AND STRONG ENERGY POINTS ARE ANOTHER GREAT ASSET TO OUR
HAUNTED WOODS. ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING THING I SAW IN THERE WAS THE RED, YELLOW AND BRIGHT BLUE ORBS. THE WORST WAS BEING GROWLED AT.
THERE IS ALOT OF THINGS GOING IN THE WOODS TOO. ONE NIGHT WE WENT I FEEL THAT WE WERE BEING CHASED OUT, NOT BECAUSE THEY WERE EVIL, I THINK BECAUSE THE
THINGS PUSHING US AWAY WERE SAVING US FROM SOMETHING GOING THAT NIGHT IN THERE. I HAVE PICS TO PROVE JUST HOW MANY ORBS GATHER IN THERE.

“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“ Frank

"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."
