This Picturesque Spot In Arizona Experiences A Mysterious Phenomenon You Need To See For Yourself
Most visitors of Sedona will tell you there is a certain enchanting draw the small town has. Beautiful vistas, miles of hiking trails, delicious food, and…energy vortices? Yes, according to some people, Sedona is home to some mysterious sources of energy that are scattered around town and the surrounding areas.
First, let’s talk about what an energy vortex is. It is a spot where energy can be experienced entering or exiting the earth, moving up, down, or even in a vortex, like a whirlwind you cannot see. Most people tend to seek them for spiritual purposes, where meditation and prayer can be more powerful.
People who visit a vortex often report feeling drawn to the location, experiencing a calming effect, reconnecting with forgotten memories, and even experiencing a sense of healing.
Airport Mesa is the most popular vortex area since it's central location in the city makes it easy to access. This could be a good place to start if you want to look for a vortex.
Another popular location is Cathedral Rock, which requires a tough hike.
Other known locations include Bell Rock, the area surrounding Church of the Holy Cross, and an area between two buttes in Boynton Canyon. Rumor has it the location in Boynton Canyon (located near a spire called Kachina Woman) is one vortex you may actually be able to touch!
Despite what the headline says, you won't actually
see a vortex and it won't look like the image below. Instead, it's something that is often felt.
Most people tend to agree that a vortex can be spotted by looking at the trees. Twisted and swirling, they may indicate an energy in the area.
However, I've found that most of the trees people point to as indicators happen to be juniper, which naturally twist as they grow.
Another way to spot them is to check for markers left by previous visitors. Most of the spots are marked with stacked stones like this.
When you do find a vortex, most people recommend sitting back, taking time to relax and breathe, and even meditate. Take your time and you just might experience the positive energies.
Whether you believe they exist or not, some people have found a sense of wonder and peace in finding and experiencing the vortices. Have you experienced these before? Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving a comment below or on our Facebook page.
