Back from Arizona!
We stayed only minutes away from Sedona, consequently spent a lot of time there! Thought it was interesting we were in Sedona on 11/11. I wasn't really sure why it was suppose to be a spiritual gathering place, did research and found out there are four vortexes(they don't say vorticies) where energy is compounded and supposedly created inter-dimensional possibilities. I have to say I was skeptical, especially after seeing that there was an alien encounter center, which consisted of two camper trailers in town. And now I insert the 'but', not about the alien encounter center, but I did experience both a physical and spiritual reaction at all of the vortex sites!
I just hoped to have one spiritual experience! I suppose the number prompts we saw before even getting on the plane should have been a heads up for me. There was a phone number 222-222-2222 on several billboards, asked out loud, " I thought Bztutu stayed in the southern hemisphere, maybe he has a brother ?" I was bombarded by multiple 2's and 3's. There were also other weird coincidences. While in the air I was doing a puzzle book. One of the Word Searches was on cities across the U.S., we flew into Phoenix then drove north from there. I kid you not on our route about ten of the city names listed in the puzzle, were towns on our way to Sedona.
The physical reactions began for me 2 to 5 miles before reaching each vortex location. They ranged from being extremely dizzy and off balance, to pressure around my head and a pressure/pain in my heart. I was so off balance, I was worried people thought my husband was leading around a drunk woman. You could tell you'd reached where the vortexes were strongest, because the juniper trees were unnaturally twisted around their trunks and branches. All of the vortexes are within state parks, you had to pay an admittance fee, but they were all natural sites with no commercialism attached to them.
Another thing, I was bombarded with was heart stones. Ever since my mom passed away sixteen years ago, whenever I was missing her I'd look down and invariably find a heart stone. On this trip whenever I'd question if I was going the right direction or wonder if my impressions were correct, there would be a heart stone! I've found maybe a dozen of them since Mom died, in Arizona I'd seen at least twice that. We even saw a a heart shaped cactus leaf on a plant where all the other leaves were an oval shape.
I took a notebook with me to all areas I visited. Made a decision that I wasn't going to second guess any of the impressions I had and simply write everything down. This was one of the first times I'd written impressions while I wasn't meditating. I was happy and surprised that it felt like I was in alpha, able to concentrate on what I was feeling and writing(seeing and hearing), while the rest of the world existed somewhere outside my little bubble, but also able to maintain it if the outside world encroached... I'm still in awe at my experiences.
Something else I found interesting, after calling home and explaining the vortexes to Aleah she asked if they made the shape of a pentagon. I replied, "I don't think so there's only four of them." When visiting the forth vortex just before getting back into my car I saw a perfectly shape pentagon stone. Although prone to singing, it took me by surprise upon seeing that stone I sang out
loudly, "Pentagon!!!" You're probably thinking, "Ahh,... Kim you're rambling." I have a point, our next stop was a New Age store. we wanted to look for souvenirs. While I was preoccupied, Dave got bored, happened to pick up a book and found out there was another vortex! It was only a mile from the store so we went there. Whether they line up to make a pentagon I've yet to research that. When returning home I asked Aleah why she wondered if they formed a pentagon. She replied, "Because the center of a pentagon forms a nexus where energy is strongest." Asked where she learned that from. Said she had no idea. So, I have no idea if any of this means anything, added to the rest of my experiences on this trip I found it interesting. My husband had several spiritual happenings also and he's not one to look for them. I found it funny when he'd announce, "11:11 or heart stone!
It also surprised me how absolutely beautiful it is out there. I feel pretty egocentric about where I live, most places hardly compare. Think I got whiplash from trying to take in the splendor that surrounded me, every where I turned was a visual treat! We put over a thousand miles on our rental car in seven days and probably took as many pictures. The Grand Canyon was awe inspiringly splendiffereous! Sedona is a very clean and new type of town, but with a reflection of old fashion adobe type buildings. We had our first encounter with round-a-bouts. The back drop to the town are magnificent stone mountain facings with several spectacular stone outcropping structures, many of which have names.
Love to all,
