Visitors and locals alike remark on the mysteriously overwhelming sense of peace they derive from their excursions in Sedona—particularly at the sites of Sedona’s famous vortexes, which are said to swirl with otherworldly energy that calms and restores the soul.
Meditation is one of the most perfect activities to partake in when you visit these hallowed, sacred places. From upflow and inflow sites to guided meditation sessions, there are a number of ways in which individuals can experience the soothing energy and atmosphere of the vortexes. Read on to learn more!
Vortex Guides and More
You might wonder where to begin your spiritual journey amongst Sedona’s vortexes. You can use the services of a guide, or try to take on the vortexes in a self-guided tour. Whichever route you decide to take, we have recommendations for you that we hope will result in a positive, rejuvenating trip for you!
The Basics of Self-Guided Tours
If you wish to see the vortexes without the aid of a guide, there is some basic information that you should know before setting off on your visit, such as what constitutes an upflow site, an inflow site, the difference between the two, and areas where these two types overlap.
An upflow site normally occurs on a mesa or a mountain, where the lowered levels of oxygen concentration increase the spirituality of your meditation session. Examples of upflow vortex sites include Bell Rock (which is said to have a strong upflow), Airport Mesa, and Oak Creek Canyon Overlook (which has a combination of upflow and lateral energy).
An inflow site, contrastingly, usually takes place in a canyon or valley. Red Rock Crossing is one such place, where a strong inflow is said to dwell, as well as a lateral water cleansing.
Sites where upflows and inflows meet are known as combination sites. You can find these places at the Saddle of Cathedral Rock, the area that includes Chapel of the Holy Cross (which is said to be not only a combination site, but a soul projection site as well), and Boynton Canyon (which has an upflow within an inflow).
In these places, you can open your mind, ponder your most concerning questions, and receive both perspective and confirmation from the spirits interred within these areas.
Tour with a Guide
If this is all a little too much to take in, you can take a journey with local guides such as the healers and meditation experts at Sedona Vortex Retreats, Sedona Sacred Journeys, Sedona Red Rock Tours, and Mystical Bazaar.
