Sedona – Energy Vortexes
Sedona, AZ is noted for its mesmerizing beauty, tranquility/enlightenment, and centers of energy called vortexes. The locals refer to the energy centers as vortexes rather than vortices. Sedona has long been referred to as a spiritual power center due to the energy that emanates from the four vortexes in the area. Sedona thrives as a center of the New Age movement. People come from around the world to experience these swirling centers of energy that are believed to be conducive to spiritual healing, meditation and self-exploration. Many New Age participants refer to Sedona as a spiritual Disneyland. I recall in 1967 the singing group Fifth Dimension, in recognition of the New Age movement, recorded the hits Up, Up, and Away and The Age of Aquarius two years later.
Just in case you are wondering what a vortex is, it is the funnel shape created by a whirling fluid, or by the motion of spiraling energy, i.e. whirlwinds, tornadoes and water going down a drain. A vortex can be made up of anything that flows, such as water, wind, or electricity. The Sedona vortexes are swirling centers of subtle energy coming out from the surface of the earth. The four main energy vortexes around Sedona are the Airport, Red Rock/ Cathedral, Boynton Canyon and Bell Rock. The subtle energy that exists at these locations interacts with who a person is inside. If you visit Sedona, decide for yourself.
