Energy Vortices

Energy vortices are geographical areas, such as the rocky landscape in and around Sedona, Arizona, that are said to have unusual energy currents that stimulate people and encourage prophetic dreams, mystical visions, and intense creativity. People who believe in energy vortices have come up with various theories to explain them. Some say the vortices’ powers come from the fact that they are geometrically aligned with certain stars and constellations, but others have suggested that their energy comes from the unusual geological formations often found in these areas. There is no scientific evidence, however, of such energy, and skeptics believe that visitors to such sites only believe that their well-being is enhanced while there.
