So there we were... at a mysterious vortex

Sedona Thunder mountainSo what exactly IS a vortex, anyway? Sedona is famous for its mystical energy vortexes -- but what ARE they? What happens when you go to one?

We did a women's trip to Sedona recently, and I got to join our group on the vortex tour. Now I can't tell everything, because our unwritten rule is "what happens at the vortex, stays at the vortex". (I guess now it's a written rule!) :-) But without giving too much away, I can tell you a bit about it.

Vortexes are places on the earth where there's an especially strong electromagnetic field, and there are quite a few of them in the Sedona area. Some of the sites are described as having upward energy, some inwards, some a balanced combination. Other times you'll hear these described as male or female energies. Native Americans have used these sites for centuries, and recognize their spiritual power.

So what happens at a Sedona vortex? Some people have miraculous healings or visions. Some people feel nothing at all. Most of us are somewhere in the middle. We visit with a wonderful vortex guide who provides insights, and performs special ceremonies to help us get in touch with the energies of the land and ourselves. I've been on quite a few vortex tours, and I always feel something. I never know what to expect, though -- every time is different.

Peacock featherOn this beautiful blue-sky afternoon, we visited Boynton Canyon, guarded by Kachina woman (an important rock formation at this vortex site), then found a private spot near the creek for our medicine wheel ceremony. By the end of the afternoon, we'd made discoveries about our aura energies, life situations and issues we were facing, and insights on our connections with the earth, ancestors, and animal spirits.

At the end, we each received a black velvet bag with a peacock feather, and some items that were meaningful to each of us. When I saw the message in mine, I was astounded. It was so "on target " it was spooky.

We do Sedona tours for women several times a year, and each guest has an option to go on a Sedona vortex tour. I can't tell you what to expect, since each time is different. You'll just have to experience it for yourself!
