Sedona Spiritual Vortexes


Sedona spiritual vortexes are powerful and transformational energy centers that are located at specific sites throughout Sedona, Arizona. Vortexes are the intersections of natural electromagnetic earth energy, also known as ley lines.

Ley lines can intersect in different ways, creating different types of energy vortexes. The three most common types of vortexes are magnetic, electrical and balanced vortexes.

3 Different Types of Sedona Spiritual Vortexes and How They Can Enhance Your Spiritual Practice

Magnetic vortexes have a feminine or “yin” energy because the energy flow is very nurturing, soft and welcoming and can assist you in inward activities, such as contemplation, meditation and reflection. Cathedral Rock–the “womb with a view” is a well-known magnetic vortex.

It’s also a beautiful natural cathedral and the most photographed red rock formation in Sedona.

An electrical vortex is a “yang” or masculine vortex. Electrical vortexes tend to be very energizing and are really great for getting the energy moving. Perfect for forward movement, setting intentions and increasing your resolve and stamina, electrical vortexes are somewhat akin to drinking a double espresso.

An electrical vortex such as Bell Rock is the right place to do a vigorous yoga flow or to chant or make prayers. Bell Rock will amplify your petitions and send them up and out into the Universe.

Balanced vortexes are simply a mix of electrical and magnetic energy, both yin and yang. For example, Airport Mesa is one of the best known balanced Sedona spiritual vortexes. Go to Airport or any balanced vortex to see things from a larger perspective and to gain clarity and a higher vision for your life.

The four best known Sedona spiritual vortexes are Airport Mesa, Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock and Boynton Canyon. Each of these vortexes are well- documented and publicized. In 1980, a local Sedona medium named Page Bryant acknowledged and named some of the vortexes, causing them to gain in popularity as places for spiritual awakening.

The vortexes are not new, however, and Native Americans including the Navajo, Yavapai and Hopi Indians long before recognized recognized the energy and spiritual power of Sedona’s vortexes, honoring the land in this area and using them only for sacred ceremonies.

There are many Sedona spiritual vortexes than just these four. In fact, Sedona is enveloped with vortexes which have been detected and measured through dowsing.

Some of the clues you notice when coming upon a vortex unexpectedly include subtle energy vibrations such as tingling in the hands or buzzing throughout your body, heating up or feeling a rush of energy or a shift in consciousness or perception.

Often, the land will be very beautiful wherever there is a vortex and trees may show twisting trunks and branches, spiraling in the energy field.

The energy field of Sedona spiritual vortexes encompasses a circumference of about 22 miles. Sedona is enfolded in spiritual vortex energy and many people experience a lift just by coming into town. The greawww concentration of energy, however, can usually be felt right at the vortex sites.

How Will They Affect Me?

Vortex energy intensifies everything in comes in contact with and makes Sedona at large a huge amplifier. That means that everything you are feeling will be magnified. If you are happy while you are in Sedona, you may become euphoric or blissful. When you experience the sensation of love, you may be ecstatic.

Conversely, if you are irritated, agitated or depressed, those feelings will also be magnified. It’s for this reason it’s very important to watch your feelings and mental chatter while you’re in Sedona. You may experience instant demonstrations of just how powerful your thoughts and emotions can be.

Vortex energy makes living here a constant learning and growth experience. We refer to this special energy field as the “Spirit of Sedona,” a strong, creative, inspiring and loving feminine presence. And we consider ourselves to be here at her bidding, her will and her invitation.
