This blog post is inspired by a question we received which asked us "Why Northern Arizona?". XAnthos is currently in Illinois (aka ill & annoyed; sprayed and corn-fused) and plan to get out of this swamp land. There are many spiritual signs and synchronicity that led us to choosing Northern Arizona, but there are also many practical and life-saving benefits.
#1. Free from Natural Disasters!!!
There are no fault lines in Northern Arizona and has less than 1% chance of an earthquakes occurring! There is only the potential for 1 tornado per year and N. Arizona is at an altitude of 4,000 ft.+ which means that even if all of the ice in Earth melted, it would still be dry land!!!
#2. Population Density!
N. Arizona is a very remote area of the U.S. and has a low population density and availability to purchase undeveloped land is considerable.
#3. Cheap Viable Land!
Due to point #2, viable land can be purchased at low cost per acre. Although the land is overgrazed in many cases, soil can be easily amended and perma-cultures can thrive year-round.
#4. Spiritually Significant Area!
N. Arizona is a Native American spiritual center and the "Flower of Life" covers most of the region as seen in the image. Spiritual ley-lines and vortexes can be observed throughout. More on this topic another time....
#5. Gun Laws!
Arizona is an open carry state. As long as male violence is the worst problem in the world, we have the right to bear arms and have a visible deterrent. In an ideal world, XAnthos would not promote violence in any form, but as long as The Walking Dead of Patriarchy still exist, we must have ways to defend ourselves and others.
#6. Air Quality & Night Sky!
N. Arizona has 300+ days of sunshine a year and clear skies. We noticed that we could breath so much better in Arizona, even in downtown Phoenix. The night sky is something to behold and it was recently short-listed for a new multi-national space observatory.
#7. Acceptance of Diversity!
Arizona is a place for freedom OF religion or freedom FROM religion, but one thing is certain for Arizona....they all have an unmatched passion for Mother Earth!
#8. Off-Grid Capability/Allowances
Arizona is currently considering composting toilets, they permit solar and wind energy, self built and mobile homes, rain water catchment, and adverse possession laws. Unlike some states, they allow you to be totally off-grid (unlike Florida & Colorado).
Please, let us know if you have anything to add to this list!! Thanks for listening
