296--Arizona: Sedona, Pulled to the Vortex
@ CherieSpotting     Jun 30 2005 - 13:05 PST
cherie writes: Sedona locals say: “God Created the Grand Canyon, but He lives in Sedona.” The Anasazi (or “ancient ones” in Navajo) were the first people to inhabit Sedona, but the city takes her name from Sedona Schnebly. Good thing the town folk back in 1902 had the good sense to go with Sedona’s first name! (Plus I think her husband realized that you get a lot of action in the bedroom when you name a town after your wife!)

People travel to Sedona for a variety of reasons—some come to align their charkas, while others come to ride horseback or play golf. In Sedona you can hike, meditate, and even have a photo of your “aura” taken. Believers come here to heal their souls, rejuvenate their spirit and harness their energy. Some are drawn to the beauty of the spectacular red-rock formations, while others are pulled the vortices that Sedona is renowned for.

Scientists report that in the past 330 million years the ocean has sluiced through Sedona 18 times. But when the life-giving water left—her vital energy remained. Sedona is considered a powerful vortex—a place where energy is pooled. There are 15-20 vortex sites within a radius of 5 miles. Each vortex is considered electrical (male), magnetic (female) or electromagnetic (balanced).

I stopped at Bell Rock, which is considered a masculine vortex. I had my photo taken 3 times by 3 different strangers. Stranger #1 got a great shot of my breasts, but missed my face. Stranger #2 (at the request that he please include my head in the photo) got only my head (no Bell Rock.) And Stranger #3 focused on the rock, instead of me and I’m a bit blurry. Or perhaps it’s just the overwhelming blur of my aura?
