Sedona Hiking, Vortexes, and Astral Projection

March 18, 2011

In the last post I had moved from Sanford and Sons to the lovely Turquoise Triangle RV Park, which is still proving to be a fine decision and I was scheduled for a complimentary massage over at the School.  Well, the massage was very nice as was the gentleman who gave it.  Snowy was his name.   Snowy  is middle-aged and has long white/blonde hair down past his shoulders with just a hint of glitter.  During the massage he told me how much he loves Alaska and how beautiful he thinks it is etc.  Snowy has actually never been to Alaska, mind, but has formed this high opinion of it based on what his Spirit Animals have told him of their journeys there.  His Spirit Animals were determined by his native tribe and are the Snow Wolf and the Snow Owl.   How interesting.   Did I mention that Snowy is from Pennsylvania?

To quote from John and Micki’s Metaphysical  Site, http://www.lovesedona.com/01.htm “In addition to being a beautiful and serene place, Sedona has long been known as a spiritual power center. This is because the power that emanates from the vortexes produces some of the most remarkable energy on the planet. This energy is the reason Sedona is full of people that are “on the path”, that is, people who have made a commitment to grow and become as much as they can spiritually. It is also the reason that such a large New Age community has sprung up in the Sedona area, bringing with it a variety of spiritual practices and alternative healing modalities, and it is the reason Sedona has sometimes been called a spiritual Disneyland.”

”There are several energy centers, or vortexes of subtle energy, located in the Sedona area. The energy from these vortexes saturates the whole area in and around Sedona, and can be noticed in a subtle but general way anywhere around town.  If you actually go to one of the vortex sites, which is where the energy is strongest, it can be a very uplifting experience.  The energy you take in at one of these energy centers can stay with you and affect you positively for days afterwards.”

“The vortexes in Sedona are swirling centers of subtle energy coming out from the surface of the earth. The vortex energy is not exactly electricity or magnetism, although it does leave a slight measurable residual magnetism in the places where it is strongest.”

“There are four main energy vortexes in Sedona. The subtle energy that exists at these locations interacts with who a person is inside. The energy resonates with and strengthens the Inner Being of each person that comes within about a quarter to a half mile of it. This resonance happens because the vortex energy is very similar to the subtle energy operating in the energy centers inside each person. If you are at all a sensitive person, it is easy to feel the energy at these vortexes.”

I have printed the Vortex Map and plan to visit all four sites before too long.  I’ll let you know what I see and feel, if anything, and if my Inner Being feels stronger as a result.  So far, I’ve only seen what some people believe is a Portal to another dimension.  While on my first hike in the area, Fay Canyon, lovely, I noticed some people gathered around a large flat round rock up on a hillside and learned that the rock is believed by some to be a Portal.  In fact, I understand some folks come out and spend the night on the rock so they might better experience travel to another dimension. I don’t know about you, but it made me think of Jim Morrison and his peyote eating experiences in the desert, but I digress.

What fun it’s going to be –discovering and learning all about Spirit Animals, Vortexes, Portals, Other Dimensions, Time Travel,  and Astral Projection.

Here are some folks from the local Meet Up Hiking Group with the “Portal” high in the background.  Do you see it?

And here is a shot I took while hiking up Bear Mountain.

In addition to the Meet Up Hiking Group, I learned about another, more organized hiking group, called The Westerners.  http://www.sedonawesterners.org/index.shtml They were established in 1961 and offer hikes 5 days a week for all levels of fitness, from the “Amblers” to “Rough Riders”.  I went on an incredible 8.5 mile hike with the “Mustangs” sub group yesterday and am still shaking my head in amazement.  What an awesome hike!  Awesome because of the beauty and awesome because it was off the beaten track.  This hike went over and around buttes, canyons, rims, and passes on little used to barely discernible to no trail at all.  Needless to say, other than at the trailhead used to access our route, we saw no one.  Wonderful.  It is a very active group, so there were about 20 participants.  We divided into two groups of about 10, each with a leader and set off and a fairly aggressive pace.  I can’t wait to hike with these guys again as they rarely hike on trails that can be found on area topo maps or in local hiking books.  Yippeeee!

Yesterday was a bit cloudy, thank goodness as the sun is quite strong already,so my photos aren’t the best, but here’s one I took during our lunch break.

Oh, and you can’t swing a cat around here without hitting a ruin.   Here are some in great shape.  You can see the mud plaster used to cover the rocks and the black charring on the ceiling from the fires.

And what’s a ruin without cave drawings?

That’s it for now.  Stay tuned for more hiking tales and metaphysical discoveries.

    When I was in my earlier years, I, too, went searching for vortexes and astral projections. I think I actually fell into one of those vortexes. It took me awhile to emerge, so be careful and tread lightly. Sounds like you are having a great adventure. Love the blog/photos.
