What is a Vortex in Sedona?

A vortex in Sedona is a swirling center of subtle energy coming out from the surface of the earth. It is believed that the power that emanates from vortexes produce some of the most remarkable energy on the planet.

Kids (and adults!) may be better able to grasp the idea of a vortex by looking at familiar examples of vortex shapes are whirlwinds, tornadoes and water going down a drain. A vortex can be made up of anything that flows, such as wind, water or electricity.

You can’t visit Sedona without hearing about the vortexes found here. The area has long been known as a spiritual power center because of these vortexes, or subtle energy located in the area. While not exactly electricity or magnetism, a vortex does actually leave a slight measurable residual magnetism in the places where it is the strongest.

There are four specific areas in the Sedona area that are said to be energy vortexes.

In order to really experience a vortex in Sedona, I’m told you must be aware that they exist and open to what you’ll feel. While every person experiences something different, I’m told that the “resonance occurs because the vortex energy is very similar to the subtle energy operating in the energy centers inside each person.”

The energy absorbed in this way can have a positive effect on you for days afterwards.

While we were in Sedona, I also learned that Juniper Trees, fairly common in this area, may be a really simple area to locate the strongest vortexes. It turns out these trees respond particularly well to the energy of the vortex. They say, the stronger the energy the more of an axial twist the Juniper Trees have in their branches.

Instead of branches that go straight down into the earth, the branches will twist in a spiraling effect, sometimes even bending the branch.
