Sedona Energy Vortexes

Sedona AZ comes by its reputation as a groovy town quite rightfully. See, there are energy vortexes connected to four of the red rock formations.



1. they call them voretxes, not vortices. Just go with it.

2. much like a vortex of wind or water (or time), powerful–but invisible–forces are at play.

3. and although a vortex innately has strength, the Sedona energy forces are considered “subtle.” Evident throughout town in a general way, they are most profoundly felt at the specific spots.


People connect with the Sedona energy because “the vortex energy is very similar to the subtle energy operating in the energy centers inside each person. If you are at all a sensitive person, it is easy to feel the energy at these vortexes.”*

Maybe X Does Mark the Spot?

Admittedly, I didn’t walk the whole trail. Again, no hat or water. But curious me wanted to see what others find. And they find spirals made of rocks, and cairns (stacks of rocks). Perhaps that’s the spot?

Getting Closer

It’s said that Juniper trees in particular respond to the vortex energy.  The stronger the energy in a given place, the more the branches twist. Not all that familiar with Juniper trees and their natural state vs energized, I went to Flickr and Bing. See for yourself.

Snarky or Uneasy?

Yes, I’ve written a rather questioning post about the vortexes. And yet…I did feel something. Calm and encompassing.

If I can consider Mt Ranier or the shuk in Jerusalem my holy places for the way they make me feel, why can’t there be energy in Sedona?


Have you ever felt connected to a place? Uplifted by it?

Have you ever felt connected to a place? Uplifted by it? – Yes! Absolutely. So many times that I have lost count. Usually at the beach, the moment I get my toes in the sand and look out across the water where it meets the horizon. First beach experience was in Florida on the Gulf Coast at about 3 years of age. Awesome! I have been in love with beaches ever since.
Another memorable moment was viewing the “Behold” sculpture by Patrick Morelli at the King Center as a teen. It is a piece capturing the ancient African ritual of lifting a newborn to the heavens and reciting “Behold, the only thing greater than yourself”. I connected with the sculpture in an awesome way the first day I saw it, not long after it was installed in Atlanta.


Yes absolutely! In Grand Canyon, I know, I know so boring and typical, but seriously that place was just mindblowing and then again on the California coast. The wildness of that coastline. Loved Sedona, very beautiful out there, but we did not check out the vortexes on our quick visit there. Maybe next time. And on a rather silly note thank you for naming those trees! I have a interest in funky looking trees and do not always know the name of them, so thank you!

Sere – happy to name the trees! Whatever I can do to help. And the Grand Canyon is not typical. It’s stunning!!


I love when you post videos and I can see and hear you. What experience did you have on Mt. Rainier. I can definitely understand the shuk. For me, I find Ubud, Bali, powerful – though I have to articulate why. I feel like it slows me down to the speed of life

Jef – Mt Ranier was incredible bc it was the middle of summer, I was wearing shorts, and there was still snow on the ground! Made snow angels and went sledding!! As for your place, I admittedly never heard of it, but looked it up and the pics are stunning!

I’ve been to Sedona. The red rocks are beautiful and even the not red rocks are lovely (we stayed in Oak Creek Canyon). Having said that, and this is purely anecdotal, but the three people I have known personally who believe in the power of the Sedona vortexes act like their brain is in a vortex much of the time. Drugs are definitely enhancing the power of the vortexes for one of them.

Going on a hike or a nice walk by myself somewhere beautiful is usually a calming experience for me, so it could be endorphins rather than vortexes that helped you get over your anger — just sayin. I mean, a lot of people use physical exertion when they need to get themselves under control.

OK. I’m being really terrible and my sister who lives in California would be all in my face for being judgmental.

Peace. Out.
