The mysteries of the Sedona vortexes

Sedona vortex sites
Sedona, Arizona is just a short drive from Cave Creek, where we live. My wife and I have made the trip several times during our 23 years in the valley of the sun, and have returned home each time feeling very relaxed and rejuvenated. On each occasion we visited at least one of the Sedona vortexes, those cryptic portals that provide mystical energy and send one away wondering what just happened. What happened is often a matter of interpretation

First discovered in the 1950s by Paul Bryant, these phenomena appeal mostly to the New Age believers, but there are many lay folks like my wife and I who think they do have spiritual powers. Not in the sense of religion's spiritual, but the "within us" kind of ethereal feeling. But the non-believers are also attracted to Sedona for the beautiful red rock formations that surround this quaint town. On your first visit you will stand in awe at what surrounds you.

The site, "Sacred Destinations" says all this vortex power or energy is "...located where hypothetical alignments called "ley lines" intersect with one another." Alfred Watkins, an amateur archaeologist and antiquarian "...noticed that straight lines could be drawn between ancient sacred sites like Stonehenge and Avebury and hypothesized that these lines were ancient trade routes." The New Age movement adopted ley lines into their philosophy defining them as "...magnetically-charged sources of cosmic energy."

You'll have to see for yourself and if you do, here's a vortex map to follow.
