The majestic red rock scenery and evergreen vegetation are two reasons for the
unique energy of Sedona and its tangible regenerative and inspirational effects.
The red-orange color of the rock is one of the most neuro stimulating of colors. It
enhances creative thinking and problem solving. Because Sedona is framed year
round by green, visitors are also bathed in sense of hope and renewal,
regardless of the season. The spectacular trails and overlooks provide numerous
opportunities for prayer, and contemplation.

Sedona is also internationally known for the uplifting power of it’s Vortex
meditation sites. Two aspects of those sites make Sedona truly special. First
within a very small geographical radius you can easily access all the different
types of vortexes (upflow/masculine/electric, inflow/feminine/magnetic, or
combination /electromagnetic, etc.) Second, the Vortex sites are interwoven with
the real world of a growing city. As a result, seekers have experiences in how to
live their spirituality as they go through their daily lives. Rather than having to
escape from civilization to find peace, visitors discover that Sedona’s splendor
gives them insights for how to create an inner harmony they can maintain once at

Vortexes Made Simple

Vortex sites are enhanced energy locations that facilitate prayer, meditation,
mind/body healing, and exploring your relationship with your Soul and the divine.
They are neither electric nor magnetic (although these words are often used to
describe the vortexes, along with the other nomenclature such as masculine or
feminine sites). The explanation for vortexes lies more at the boundaries of
known science, rather than in electromagnetic descriptions or gender related

Recently the PBS program Nova, featured a breakthrough in physics called
“String Theory” (also known as super-strings) that is revolutionizing all of science
on the same order of magnitude that Einstein’s discoveries did in the early
1900’s. The key spiritual implications of super-strings is that the world’s top
scientists agree that all things exist in a minimum of 10 or more dimensions.
Simply stated Vortex sites are locations having energy flows in those deeper
dimension that the Soul can soar on.

Upflow Vortexes (also called electric or masculine sites) have energy flows that
help you soar to higher spiritual perspectives. They enhance prayers or
mediations for blending with the Universe, feeling one with the divine, or facing a
problem from a Soul level. Inflow Vortexes (also called magnetic or feminine)
have energy flows that help you go inward. In them you will be more successful
with meditations or prayers about your life purposes or how to heal hurts in your
past. There are also Combination Vortexes that have aspects of both energies.
These allow the seeker to experience more advanced or in depth spiritual skills
and meditations. A wide variety of lectures, texts, and Guides are available through Sedona’s
bookstores and Spiritual Centers to assist you in experiencing the power of
Sedona’s Vortex sites. Give yourself the gift of tapping Sedona’s potential for
spiritual renewal and advancement.
