Have you ever experienced a vortex? You may have but didn’t realize that is what it was. Some vortexes can be seen in everyday life such as a whirlpool in a river, a dust devil or even water going down your bathtub drain. So basically a vortex is a spiraling motion of air or liquid around a center rotation.

Now take your image of a vortex and imagine one created not by wind or water but by spiraling spiritual energy and that is what the Sedona vortexes are: locations having energy flow that exists on multiple dimensions. Can you see yourself being in the middle of all that energy and feeling it? People who have visited the vortexes of Sedona believe them to be spiritual locations where the energy is right to facilitate prayer, mediation and healing. It is thought that the energy of the vortexes interacts with a person’s inner self. I know that can be hard to wrap your mind around as it is not easily explained. The truth is it must be experienced because there are no adequate words to really describe it

One of the most famous Sedona Vortexes is right down Airport Road from Sky Ranch Lodge. The Airport Vortex is a magical place and a mystical experience. Be sure to head down there and feel the vortex energy coming from the earth that is famous for lifting people’s moods and rejuvenating their senses. If you are a skeptic then look at it this way: you will get in a great hike as the vortex sits high on a ridge that overlooks Oak Creek and West Sedona. Horizons up to 70 miles away can be seen. That alone makes it worth the trip and who knows? You may come away having an unexpected experience.

If you are a believer in the power of the vortex, then you may have a very personal and healing experience. One that will enlighten you, boost your energy and give you peace.

Some people come on a spiritual quest, some come because they are disbelievers and want to prove themselves right, some just come to see it for themselves and see what all the fuss is about. Whether you are on a spiritual journey or just curious, a visit to the Airport Mesa Vortex will allow you to take in the beauty of nature. Bring an open mind and just see what happens. Sometimes going out of our comfort zone is the best thing to kick start our lives again and start on a path of healing and adventure.
