Vortexes of Sedona
Sedona is known world-wide to be a spiritual mecca due to the majestic grounding red rock and energy vortexes. The healing qualities of these invisible energies touch the heart, mind and soul. Many alternative healers are drawn to Sedona’s spectrum of spiritual and healing gifts.
There are different types of energy vortexes in Sedona. These vortexes are swirling centers of subtle energy that flow from the surface of the earth. Although the energy is not exactly electricity or magnetism they seem to offer these same qualities to many sensitive people. Some are upflow vortexes and they are called electric or masculine sites. These vortexes are said to help you soar upwards in prayer and meditation to face problems from a soul level. Airport Vortex is a powerful model of the masculine side. It is a potent vortex that is said to increase your concentration, decision making skills and to increase your ability to problem solve. Inflow Vortexes are called magnetic or feminine. These energy upflows help you go within to your inner world. They are known to help you find your life purposes and how to heal hurts in your past. Cathedral Rock is an example of the feminine vortex which is said to strengthen your feminine and spiritual inward side.
Boynton Canyon and Bell Rock Vortexes are said to strengthen the balance of the masculine and feminine energies. The yin/yang balance is what we are all ultimately striving for. No matter how evolve we are we are learning that the way we treat others is also the way we treat ourselves. If the masculine side is stronger than the feminine then we will be too strong and we could do harm to others because we can be too pushy as well as take advantage of others. On the other hand if we are too feminine we will let others push us around and allow them to take advantage of us. Our emotions are a good indicator for where we are in each moment. If we are feeling angry and less fearful then our masculine is stronger. If we are feeling more like a victim or fearful then our feminine side is too strong. Having good intimate relationships is determined by the balance of our feminine and masculine sides.
The more sensitive you are the more you will feel the energy of these vortexes. You can actually see the twisting of trees in the strongest energy vortex sites.
My painting of the Sedona vortexes was created out of a spiritual trip I took with a my spiritual friend. Our friendship is more like a spiritual partnership where our journey has been taking us on a quest within. After years of wanting to go to Sedona together we finally got to the opportunity to go on 10-10-10. It was a powerful time on our journey so I wanted to capture the essence of the experience.
The painting depicts the balance of the masculine and feminine energy. The sunny blue skies with a dabble of clouds here and there, represen the opening of the throat chakra. The scattering of clouds with the sun shining through represents the subs-conscious opening up to reveal emotional blockages. The masculine vortexes are shining bright which represents the areas of the masculine side that need to surface and expand. The feminine side is representing by the swirling vortex energy on the right side. Inside the feminine vortex you will see a crow.
Crows are known by many cultures to be the communication spirit totems and guides. Since crows are known to build they nest in very tall trees they represent seeing life from a higher perspective. They are said to help you develop your power of sight, intuition and spiritual transformation. You might notice that crows will chase much larger birds out of their territory. This makes them a good symbol to call on when you need more personal will power and ability to speak your truth. Crows are also very social and they band together so they are a good symbol for cooperation and working for the greater good of the community. Since they are black in color they represent the void and spiritual side. They are a good symbol for the messengers of the spirit world and they are known to dwell beyond the realm of time and space so they live in the past, present and future simultaneously. They merge the light and dark...the inner and the outer world to form balance. They are also known to aid in the courage to enter the subconscious and inward spiritual realms. They encourage you to “walk your talk” and to let go of patterns that no longer serve you. Crows are also known to represent magic. Since these animals are common all around the globe they are a good reminder that magic is everywhere.

While I was in Sedona I met a wonderful Native American lady who looked just like a painting I had just recently painted.
