Itinerary Ideas: Chasing Vortexes in Sedona, Arizona

By Lynna - January 12, 2018

Most Americans spend their Thanksgiving evening eating a hearty meal with their family and then preparing to venture out at the crack of dawn to hunt for the best Black Friday deals. girls and I, we had quite a different Black Friday this year. After dinner, we hopped in a rental car, drove 500 miles for 7 hours through the California / Arizona desert in the dead of the night, each of us taking turns napping for two hours and then swapping to drive for two hours.

When we pulled over a few times to just stare at the darkest, deepest night sky I've ever seen, it was almost too easy to get lost in the magnificence of the Milky Way that stretched out endlessly above us, all around us. We could almost drown in the millions of stars that scattered across the sky, they were so bright and so close. It's hard to imagine how an entire world like this exists just at the edge of our fingertips, especially when we are constantly shrouded in the pollution of the too-bright city lights.

We drove on. Just as the sun was beginning yawn and stretch over the dusty desert sky, this is the view that appeared before us. It was nothing short of magic. My breath caught in my throat.

The purpose of our trip was to soak up the healing energies from the various vortexes of Sedona. We spent the rest of the weekend chasing these mystical, powerful vortexes. 

What is a Vortex?
Sedona vortexes 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. (Source: Visit Sedona)

The four main vortexes in Sedona are: Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, Boynton Canyon, and Airport Mesa.  Those who practice spirituality often venture to these vortexes to meditate, do yoga, perform healing rituals, reflect, or just soak in the positive waves of energy emanating from these hot spots.

Boynton Canyon
The first vortex we explored was Boynton Canyon which is a balanced vortex with both feminine and masculine energies. This type of vortex helps to gain clarity and a big picture perspective on life.

Bell Rock
Next up, we ventured to Bell Rock vortex.  Bell Rock is an electrical vortex which means it has masculine energy.  This type of vortex is great for high-energy activities such as chanting, vigorous yoga, or setting intentions.

Cathedral Rock
The third vortex we explored (and my personal favorite) was Cathedral Rock.  This vortex has feminine energy which helps with inner work such as meditation, reflection, and contemplation.

Stunning right?

We took off our shoes and did some earthing/grounding work 

Airport Mesa
The last vortex was Airport Mesa.  This vortex is also a balanced energy vortex, same as Boynton Canyon.  This vortex offers an incredible view over all of Sedona.

I highly recommend visiting all or any of these magical places, for any type of spiritual work that you may wish to practice, or even to just absorb the energy and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
These sights are absolutely one of kind.
