Perhaps no where is the spiritual power of Sedona as strong as at Cathedral Rock. The vortex located here sits between two large spires that rise out of the earth like a mighty cathedral and there are plenty of hiking trails, vantage points and resting ledges from which to soak up the energy emanating from deep within the ground.
Formed of both red sandstone and black lava, the steep spires reach tall toward the heavens while the vortex site itself, cone shaped and sitting lower than the highest points of this nature-made desert church, is a simple pile of lava rocks accessible by a tiny foot trail. Because of its multiple geological towers, Cathedral Rock is most definitely considered an upflow vortex, and visitors who proclaim their deepest desires here can expect the energy to carry them out into the world for realization and empowerment. Some vortex experts claim that upflow vortexes like Cathedral Rock also help the individual meet with the divine and experience a transcendence most people only dream about. It is the perfect spot for seeking greater spiritual awareness, new perspectives on old problems and courage to act on your heart’s desires.
