History and Legends of Sedona Vortexes | Sedona Soul Adventures

What is a Vortex Anyway?

So many people come to Sedona because they want to experience the Sedona Vortexes. The Sedona vortexes are known around the world but it can be hard to get a real idea about what they really are.

Vortex is believed to be a special spot on the planet where higher dimensional energies are concentrated to an extent to which it can be felt by humans. These energies, according to popular belief, especially in Sedona, enhance the flow of energy in our own bodies – what the Chinese call “chi,” or the Hindus “prana.” You could say that vortex sites are akin to acupuncture points on the earth’s surface – and that the acupuncture meridians of the planet are the “ley lines” posited by the ancient Druids.

Many assert that the vortex energies and the energy that flows through our subtle bodies is basically the same – that it is an electro-magnetic energy.

Whatever your belief, it’s hard to either prove or disprove that vortexes truly exist. While there’s been talk of measuring the force of the electro-magnetic fields at these spots, we’re not aware of any credible scientific experiments along this line.

But that doesn't mean that the energy of the Sedona vortexes isn't real. Many very real experiences are difficult, if not impossible, to measure. For example, how do you measure the very tangible experience of love? So many people have reported feeling “something” at these vortex sites (including us!) that we know there’s something to them.

Sedona Vortex

Why should you care about the Sedona Vortex Energy? 

Because if you’re looking for transformation, Sedona is the place to get it.

The energy is stronger here, it is the energy of transformation, the veils to other dimensions are thinner (so it’s easier to access here) and whatever you bring here is magnified and intensified. 

This is one of the reasons why people have such huge transformations here in such a short period of time.

The Sedona Effect™

After many years of working with thousands of people here in Sedona, I’ve come to recognize and identify what I now call The Sedona Effect.™ 

The Sedona Effect is a process of transformation that can be accessed by those who have a deep desire to bring this kind of conscious transformation into their lives. The Sedona Effect is the result of three different types of energy coming together in a special way to make transformation and permanent change possible.

The Sedona Effect comes from the combination of three things:

  1. The incredible vortex energy of Sedona...
  2. The amazing practitioners who have been called to Sedona from all over the planet to do their work and who know how to connect with and utilize this energy, and...
  3. The intense desire of those coming to Sedona to effect a life-changing transformation.

We’ve already talked about the first aspect, the incredibly powerful and transformational vortex energy of Sedona. 

The second aspect of The Sedona Effect is that healers from all over the world have been drawn here to do their work.

Here at Sedona Soul Adventures, our healers have come from England, Germany, South Africa, Ireland, the Netherlands, Australia and of course from all over the United States. In speaking to any of them, you will always hear an incredible story of how they were called to Sedona. 

Healing in Sedona Vortex

My favorite stories are ones about people who were from a completely different background – an airline pilot, an accountant, a medical doctor, a high fashion model, or in my case, an attorney. Suddenly, something happened where the awareness came that life had to be changed and the change was made.

But most important, these are people who know how to connect with this energy and to utilize it for transformation.

The third aspect of The Sedona Effect is the deep desire of people who come here for transformation to happen in their lives. It is a palpable, powerful force of energy. Even if you are in turmoil, or especially if you are in turmoil, this is an energy that is huge and real. It is deep and when it is happening, the person can sometimes feel like they’re ready to jump out of their skin.

That’s what happened to me the first time I came to Sedona. I felt like I was literally ready to jump out of my skin. I knew I had to do something; I just didn’t know what that something was. I also didn’t know that this uncomfortable, almost painful feeling was actually something powerful that was pushing me and moving me. As I look back now, this was truly the Highest part of my Self shoving me toward the transformations that were in store.

Meditate in Sedona Vortex

So I came to Sedona for what I thought would be 3 days of just being quiet. Instead, what happened was The Sedona Effect. I brought the energy of my deep desire, I did healing work with an incredible practitioner and the energy of the Mother literally came to me with the message that I must change my life. That if I didn’t, I was going to die. 

I listened to the message. My life was completely transformed because of The Sedona Effect.

We know after 21 years of doing our work here, that the vortex energy is real and greatly assists in the transformations that happen during a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat. We're moving out the old energy that's holding you back, bringing in the new energy of connection on all the levels (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) and then giving you ongoing support so you can keep doing that over and over again...so that you're not only maintaining all the transformations which happen, but that they continue to grow and deepen. 

The vortex energy of Sedona greatly accelerates that.

So if you'd love to have a transformation in your life, come to Sedona and experience the vortex energy for yourself.

Aileen says, "Everything I learned and the tools I received from my Soul Adventure ... brought me joy, self love and healing ... and are helping me follow my passions and make decisions! Especially transforming was the Meditation at the Vortex."

"Sedona Soul Adventures was what I needed to help me with my transition away from a stressful career, along with helping to come to resolution with my personal grief and loss issues. I was able to gain a wonderful experience about the power of the intuitive, power of  the feminine, and the ability to bring joy, self love and healing into our lives. I still utilize the lessons learned and tools received from my Soul Adventure to help me follow my passions and make decisions! After my Soul Adventure, I have a greater faith and trust in the world & future and feel  much more grounded! Especially transforming were my Spiritual Transformation and the Meditation at the Vortex - Thank You! I will be returning and recommending friends to this  transforming experience!”
