Sedona is famous for its vortices or, as many people say, vortexes. Just what is a vortex? If you think back to science class, it’s the experiment where you make a tornado in a bottle. Or, think of the mini tornado that forms when you drain the bathtub. A vortex is defined as a whirling mass of water (waterspout), air (tornado) or fire (fire tornado). In Sedona, it’s energy. A vortex spot in Sedona is where there is a concentration of energy. The hows and whys are still being explored and debated.
There are four well-known vortex spots in Sedona: Boynton Canyon, Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock and Airport Mesa. Truth be told, there are many places throughout Sedona where you will find this energy. Each person experiences the energy in their own way. Some feel jittery, some feel calm, some feel hyper-energetic and some feel nothing at all and this can vary from place to place. There are areas where I’ll feel like a giant is sitting on my shoulders – I find that to be a very grounding energy. There are other places where I’ll feel very light-headed. I can usually sense a vortex spot as I’ll feel the energy when I hike by it or into it. People believe that these vortex areas are conducive to meditation, healing, spiritual experiences or even spiritual awakenings.
How do you find these special energy spots? The twisted juniper trees are probably your best clue. Their branches will spiral with the energy. If you’re a really sensitive person, you’ll probably feel something rather quickly. To experience vortex energy go to a designated vortex area, sit quietly and see how you feel. It's best not to have any expectations. Some people have trouble sleeping here at night due to the energy. I had that happen at a resort I stayed at. My brain was ‘on’ and buzzing all night long. The next morning I was mentally drained, but my body felt rested and wonderful.
While this is just a brief introduction to the Sedona vortexes, you can find out more detailed information along with a downloadable map of the main vortexes by clicking here. Sedona is not the only place on the planet to have vortex energy. I could feel this energy in Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia. Have you felt this energy before?
