My eyes watered from emotion stirred by driving beneath the towering spires and sheer red rock bluffs of Sedona. The extraordinary experience I had in Sedona went far beyond my expectations. The scenery in Sedona was not what I expected. I thought I was going to see a bunch of red rocks in a desert. Instead of a flat desert floor filled with red rocks, I descended a narrow winding road for an hour into a deep canyon. My RV barely fit on the road. Several times I stopped to let cars pass me. I wanted to take my time during this drive. When I finally reached the canyon floor, steep canyon walls rose dramatically on both sides.
Sedona is famous for being one of the places in the world with vortices. A vortex is believed to be a special spot on the earth where energy is either entering into the earth or projecting out of the earth’s plane. Vortexes (or vortices) are found at sacred sites throughout the world – the Great Pyramid in Egypt, Machu Picchu in Peru, Bali, Stonehenge, Ayers Rock in Australia, etc. It is believed that the vortex energy moves in a spiral, moving up or down.
Well I don’t really know about the vortex and the effects, but I can tell you this. While driving down to the canyon floor, I felt the sensation I was floating down into canyon, not that I was just driving the RV. While in the canyon, I began to feel a sense of inner peace and calm. A deep feeling of tranquility enveloped me that I have not felt in a long time. While I don’t know whether the vortex phenomenon exists, I can tell you that I felt wonderful at Sedona. An hour after driving out of Sedona, the feelings of peace and tranquility dissipated. By the way, the cats slept through the entire drive.
I started this day in Winslow AZ, drove through Sedona, and I’m now in Prescott at the nicest campground I’ve been in so far this trip. The Point of Rocks Campground is very quiet, peaceful, and yes, surrounded by large rocks. I’m hoping to see a lot of stars this evening. I going to rest and regroup here for a few days before continuing on with the trip.
