It is said that everyone who visits Sedona has a Sedona story. Unusual things somehow happen among those breathtaking Red Rocks. Could it be because of the vortices? Is it the electromagnetic energy that draws nearly four million visitor to Sedona every year? People come to feel the spiritual energy as much as they come to see the Red Rocks and jump on off-road vehicles to explore the Arizona backcountry. But are vortices real or imagined?
What is a vortex?
A vortex is believed to be a rare place on earth where energy enters or projects out of the planet’s core—at Stonehenge, the Great Pyramids of Egypt and Sedona’s Red Rocks, for example.
There are certain places in Sedona where people believe you can “feel” the vortices stronger than in other locations, where the electromagnetic energy is concentrated. There are four such particularly strong vortices in Sedona, each worth a visit. Many people believe they provide a journey for your soul, helping with spiritual development.
Airport Mesa Vortex Site
One of the most popular vortex sites in Sedona is Airport Mesa, close to downtown. This is one of the most crowded trails, but is a great place for a sunrise hike when there are fewer people out and about. It may be one of the best places in town to view the sunset, and there may be more stars visible from here than nearly anywhere else—the Milky Way seems to swoop just out of arms’ reach.
