Crystals, Vortexes and UFOs: Sedona's Metaphysical Side

In Sedona the Metaphysical community had been pretty well established since the 80’s when the vortexes (or vortices) were defined. Most visitors know they can have their aura read, fortune told and/or past lives revealed, all before lunch, but in the last few years these beliefs have merged with those of the UFO enthusiasts and Bigfoot hunters to create some truly unique tours.

Modern Sedona is one America’s—and possibly the world’s—hottest locations for spotting U.F.O.s. Nightly tours go out with eager clients all equipped with night vision glasses, binoculars and telescopes. The amount of activity recorded would make you think the surrounding desert was some kind of intergalactic airport and has many of the locals scratching their heads. And they’re not just seeing flying saucers! Orbs, portals, actual aliens and Bigfoots (Bigfeet?) all appear to thrive in Sedona’s high desert.

The mysterious Bradshaw ranch is another place that draws in tourist. Located deep within the national forest, the rumor is that it was confiscated by the U.S. Government because it housed one of the most powerful inter-dimensional portals on the planet. Countless books and websites describe encounters there with the Arizona Bigfoot and other extraordinary Beings. Visitors are not allowed in the National Forest at night, but several tour operators will take you there and stay until dusk. According to eye witness accounts it’s the last hour of twilight when many of these phenomena take place. A Day in the West offers an Alien, Orbs and Bigfoot tour that explores the lore. The company is run by John Bradshaw, son of photographer Bob Bradshaw who sold the ranch to the Forest Service, so he should know a thing or two about it.

Daytime activities include tours of the famous vortexes (vortices). Many can be visited on your own: Bell Rock is located of highway 179 just outside of the Village of Oak Creek; the airport Vortex is accessed by a small pullout on the left about halfway up Airport Mesa (it’s a great place to watch the sun rise or set); Cathedral Rock is accessed by a trailhead of Back-o-beyond Road; and the Boynton Vortex is out in the Western Canyons by the Enchantment Resort. One of the nice things about visiting them on a tour is you get their history, and some basic explanations of how the metaphysical community views them. Of course the Native Americans found this area special as well—but there’s a tour for that too.

To get some far out local stories, just go to any Sedona coffee shop. They are filled with people who will tell you where the aliens land every night, or the path the Bigfoot take when passing through town. These “higher consciousness” conversations just might steer you down a road you wouldn’t have thought you’d take. When I first came to Sedona I fell in love with the open-minded take the inhabitants had—after a few years it drove me crazy—but in the end I decided it was better to be surrounded by flexible and tolerant people. Who knows? Is the truth really out there? Come to Sedona and find out for yourself.
