We’re on our way to the red rocks of Sedona, AZ today, for a few nights of rest and relaxation. It’s a magical place that I’ve returned to time and time again to refresh body and spirit.
The mystical beauty of the red rocks, the many vortexes and the Native American ceremonial sites make it a place that just oozes spirituality. We’ll be doing some sacred work while we’re in town and a few little hikes, as well.
If you don’t know what a vortex is, it’s a place where energy is concentrated. I’ve seen Sedona referred to as a “spiritual power spot” and my first visit years ago to one of its many vortexes proved that. I sat peacefully on a rock at a vortex site and could feel the vibrations all the way to my core.
A vortex is the perfect site from which to send up a prayer or affirmation, allowing it to be carried along on waves of metaphysical energy.
Not everyone has the same response to a vortex, but if you sit quietly and remain open, what you feel may surprise you. That’s what I’m telling M, anyway, because he’s not much for spiritual experiences like this. Still, he’s open-minded and coming along, and kudos to him for that. I am very aware that I bring to his life things that are new and a little out on the fringe for him. I love him for many things but most of all for being so open.
As for me, well, I plan to sit quietly, breathe, meditate and do some visualizations. Who knows what might come up?
If you’ve had a spiritual experience at Sedona or at any vortex site, I hope you’ll share in the comments below. From those comments I’ll draw one name for a giveaway of something I’ll get in Sedona. 😉
Also, if you didn’t get a chance to see yesterday’s post by my friend Patrick Schoch, I highly recommend it. His moving and inspirational story of his journey through autism with his young son will be the best thing you’ve read this month for sure. Find it HERE.
