For a while I have been hearing about Energy Vortexes. In fact, traveling to experience energy vortexes is becoming quite a popular travel trend.

So, what exactly are Energy Vortexes?

A vortex is believed to be a special spot on the earth where energy is either entering into the earth or projecting out of the earth’s plane. Often it is believed that geological, electromagnetic, and other factors create natural power spots – it could be a healing spring, a hidden cave, an unusual river bend, etc. Like a human being, it is believed the Earth has many energy centers.

Vortexes (or vortices) are believed to be located around the world at places like the Great Pyramids in Egypt, Machu Picchu in Peru, Bali, Stonehenge, Ayers Rock in Australia …and Sedona, Arizona.

Because of my recent trip to Arizona, I had the chance to experience, first hand, the phenom of energy vortexes.

Four of the most popular of the vortexes are: Airport Mesa Vortex, Cathedral Rock Vortex, Boynton Canyon Vortex and Bell Rock Vortex. However, there appears to be a few others. They include: the Oak Creek Canyon Overlook, Red Rock Crossing, Chapel of the Holy Cross and West Fork.

As imagined, there are all types of tours to see and experience these vortexes – jeep tours, personal tours with guides, walking tours, meditation tours.

I actually made it to a few of these spots, among them, Airport Mesa – it was a short walk from beautiful Sky Ranch Lodge, the charming boutique hotel where I was staying.

What did I experience?

Well, apparently, energy vortexes affect different people differently. I did seem to feel a little hyper – more than USUAL! But was it due to the vortex, or because I had so much I wanted to do in the short time I was visiting beautiful Red Rock Country? I am not so sure.

Sedona is such a great family travel destination, great place for groups, and definitely an amazing destination wedding venue. I can say that spending time in Sedona has always been uplifting. How could it not be, when it is one of those spectacularly beautiful places, with beauty that is just surreal.Spending any amount of time there makes me feel revived, re-energized. Is it because it is just one of those destinations that leaves you feeling better for having been there…or is it some mysterious energy from the earth beneath all that beauty beauty?

I’ll be sharing more on the phenomenon of Energy Vortexes – with map and photos –  in the June issue of Destinations Travel Magazine!
