|Do you know that Sedona’s canyon walls show 9 layers of stone from different geological periods spanning hundreds of millions of years. |
And that is is home to one of earth’s Vortex’s.
So, there is so much more to Sedona than meets the eye.
Beneath the endless beauty beats a healing heart. Sedona has long been regarded as a place both sacred and powerful.
People travel from all across the globe to experience the mysterious cosmic forces that are said to emanate from the red rocks. They come in search of the vortexes.
The Big Q: What is a vortex?
The Big A: Sedona ‘vortices’ are thought to be swirling centers of energy that are conducive to healing, meditation and self-exploration. These are places where the earth seems especially alive with energy. Many people feel inspired, recharged or uplifted after visiting a vortex.
Although all of Sedona is considered to be a vortex, there are specific sites where the energy crackles most intensely.
The 4 best known Sedona vortexes are found at Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock and Boynton Canyon each radiating its own particular energy. Some are thought to produce energy flowing upward while at others the energy spirals downward, entering the earth.
When you travel there do not be surprised to find people doing meditation, yoga or performing other rituals at vortex sites, so be respectful.
Sedona has developed a worldwide reputation as a place of enlightenment. This is home to a large community that promotes a variety of alternative healing and spiritual practices. There are wellness shops and boutiques scattered through the town. In addition, many of Sedona’s spas offer Native American-inspired treatments using indigenous materials like red rock clay and local plants.
Anyone on a journey of self-discovery can find out more from expert practitioners through the Sedona Metaphysical Spiritual Association.
Yet even if you have no particular interest in the metaphysical movement, plan on visiting Sedona’s vortex sites. It is virtually guaranteed that you will leave feeling better than when you arrived. Your heart will be lighter, your smile will be wider and you will feel more energized.
Here is the secret: Vortexes are located at some of the most devastatingly scenic spots found among the towering red rock formations. Anytime you can get outside to walk in Sunshine, breathing fresh clean air amid dazzling panoramas is a day well spent.
There are several companies, individual guides and healing practitioners that offer vortex tours. But everyone is welcome to visit on their own. All vortex sites are easily accessible and maps and directions are available at the visitor center.
The raw physical beauty of the landscape automatically recalibrates your sense of wonder.
- Embrace the spectacular.
- Accept the astonishing
Show up with an open mind and see what happens, as the Sedona experience can change your life.
It is a place that inspires, recharges, uplifts, soothes, restores and so much more. For many, the very act of being here provokes a spiritual awakening.
No one leaves Sedona unchanged.
Enjoy your travels
