It's been a long time since I've last written. I've been busy driving, eating, and painting. I'm currently writing from a Holiday Inn parking lot (free wi-fi, yall!) and I'm sipping on my morning tea. I'm on my last day in Sedona, Arizona.
Now, I know what is on your mind, "Jerry Hingle, do you feel revitalized? Are the vortexes real?!"
I can't give it all away at once, people! Let's examine Sedona, for those of you who are unfamiliar with it's enchantment.
Sedona is believed to be the site of four different vortexes--or, sprial flows of energy. A vortex can be a spiral flow of water, air, whatever! But in this case, it's a flow of energy said to be felt in four different spots.
Vortex Locations in Sedona1. Bell Rock - masculine
2. Airport Mesa - masculine
3. Boynton Canyon - both?
4. Cathedral Rock - feminine
So, the energy is not only felt by either men or women. These "masculine" and "feminine" energies are defined by the specific type of flow. If the energy is coming out of the earth, it is masculine. If it is coming into the earth, it is feminine, according to Philip Coppens.
But I've yet to answer the question: can you feel the energy? And my answer is what might be the most dreaded answer of all time: it depends. I felt something, but I can't be sure if it was energy or just the sheer beauty of the red rocks and canyons. It is so beautiful here, that whether or not you believe in the vortexes you will not be disappointed you came.
Really and truly your experience here in Sedona depends on how spiritual you are. If you feel connected with the earth and the spiritual realm, you will definitely feel an energy here in Sedona. If not, well, you'll simply be amazed at the beauty of this place.
