Where to find an energy vortex in Sedona

Sedona is famous for many incredible things, from historic breathtaking red rocks to world-renowned southwestern art. Sedona is also famous for being a spiritual center point that welcomes all. Within that spiritual openness, there are four famous energy vortexes.

What is a Vortex?

At this point, you might be asking yourself, what exactly is a vortex? Energy vortexes are said to strengthen the inner being of anyone who is near one – or even as far as a quarter mile away. The energy from a vortex is similar to the energy found in each individual’s core energy center. This is why many people who visit Sedona’s historic sites can feel the vortex energy. Sedona vortexes are natural geomagnetic points that create a swirling energy center radiating from the earth’s surface.

Many people have reported feeling inspired by these beneficial spiritual energy sources. The belief is that these vortexes facilitate balance, prayer, healing, and intuitiveness. People come from far and wide to experience this unique energy.

Vortexes supposedly strengthen either the feminine side, the masculine side, or sometimes a balance of the two. The feminine side strengthens characteristics like kindness, compassion, and patience. The masculine side strengthens traits, including reasoning, decisiveness, and self-confidence. A good balance will strengthen honesty, openness, intimacy, and commitment.

Sedona has four main energy vortexes. Some are off the beaten path and require a hike – though not strenuous – to reach. The four main vortexes in Sedona are the Airport Mesa Vortex, Boynton Canyon Vortex, Bell Rock Vortex & Cathedral Rock Vortex.

Whether planning a new trip to Sedona or adding some new adventures to your scheduled visit, you can experience these vortexes with Detours by adding the “Touch the Earth” vortex jeep tour to your Sedona tour from Phoenix & Scottsdale.

4 Best Known Vortexes in Sedona

Boynton Canyon Vortex

The Boynton Canyon vortex is located about 8 miles west of the Sedona “Y”. This energy vortex supposedly strengthens spiritual balance. The energy from the vortex is claimed to twist many of the Juniper trees in the area. You can access the Boynton Canyon Vortex from Boynton Canyon Trail; follow signs for the Vista Trail from here. Follow the red trail markers, and you will soon arrive at a 30-foot-high hill where its energy is the strongest. The Vista Trail is another beautiful trail offering sweeping views of the valley and red rocks all around. This vortex allegedly facilitates a balance between the masculine and feminine sides or yin+yang balance.

Bell Rock Vortex

Bell Rock is one of Sedona’s most known Vortex Meditation sites. It is an Upflow area (referred to as Electric or Masculine). It is best for serenity and solving problems from a higher spiritual perspective. For decades seekers from around the world have used Bell Rock for contemplative reflection and inspiration. Bell Rock is a powerful vortex in an area of many vortices. Bell Rock is located off Route 179 between Sedona and Oak Creek. The distinct shape makes it an easy one to spot. The energy at this vortex is very strong. The belief is that it strengthens all three parts – the masculine side, the feminine side, and balance.

Airport Mesa Vortex

The Airport Vortex can be accessed from Airport Road. A trail leads to the saddle between the hills. At the top of these hills, you can see breathtaking views of Sedona. Go later in the evening and take in the gorgeous sunset and the twinkling city lights. The Airport Vortex apparently strengthens the masculine side. Airport Mesa Vortex is an Upflow area (also called Electric or Masculine). The belief is that it helps your spirit soar for a higher perspective or greater oneness and serenity. It is one of the few places in Sedona where you can enjoy a 360-degree panorama of the entire town.

Cathedral Rock Vortex

You can access Cathedral Rock Vortex by either hiking or climbing. Its strongest energy can be felt as you walk east along the creek toward Cathedral Rock. Marvel at the stunning, vibrant red rocks as you meander along the cool and calming creek. The energy at this vortex allegedly strengthens the feminine side. Cathedral Rock is predominantly an Upflow Vortex (especially the 1st half of the trail). It allows a great platform for soaring and feeling inspired for greater oneness and serenity. The flat area halfway up also has wonderful views of Sedona and the Chapel of the Holy Cross. The top saddles between the spire is one of Sedona’s best Combination Vortex. These are sometimes called Electromagnetic areas that allow you to do more advanced spiritual skills and deeper forms of meditation.
