Sedona Stones

There is no place quite like Sedona!  Sedona is an Arizona desert town near Flagstaff that’s surrounded by red-rock buttes, steep canyon walls and pine forests. It’s noted for its mild climate and vibrant arts community. Sedona is a true oasis and vacationer’s paradise in the middle of the desert. Here, you’ll find resorts and spas, canyons and red rock formations. Bell Rock and Oak Creek Canyon are great hiking spots, and the dramatic architecture of the Chapel of the Holy Cross is a religious experience itself. When the sun dips down below the horizon it introduces the best show in Sedona: the night sky.

Sedona stones are fragments of our earth (including sand, salt, jasper, obsidian, iron…) that have been here for over millions of years. This region was filled with sea water and over time, the waters gradually withdrew. Time, combined with wind and erosion, created these magnificent crimson monuments. The state is also famous for copper, and a variety of copper minerals are mined as gemstones. These include azurite, chrysocolla, and malachite. Other Arizona gem materials include agate, amethyst, garnet, jade, jasper, obsidian, onyx, opal, Boji stones, Shaman stones, moqui marbles and petrified wood.

“Rock of the Vortex”

Propertiesfamous for its energy centers or vortex, Sedona has become a magnet for those seeking powerful enlightenment and a spiritual presence. These amazing stones pulse with energy! My stones have been gathered at the Cathedral Rock Vortex. This vortex, also lovingly referred to as “mama rock”, has a compassionate, nurturing, feminine energy that engulfs you when you work with these stones.

Cathedral Rock Vortex is famous for sacred Native ceremonies of the heart, as well as weddings. Referred to as the “Cathedral without walls” this magnetic vortex has concentrated energy rising from the earth. You feel a range of sensations from a slight tingling on exposed skin, or a vibration emanating from the ground, but most often this vortex is felt by a palpable sensation across the nape of the neck and the shoulders.

This amazing red stone has a warm and grounding energy to it. It connects to our Root Chakra, brings about sensations of fire, desire, awakening and power. Each ancient stone comes with its history, how to use it as an energy tool, a related meditation, as well as how to cleanse, care and nurture it.

A vortex is the funnel shape that is created by the motion of spiraling energy and can be made up of anything that flows, like wind and water.  Vortex sites are believed to have energy that exists on multiple dimensions and this energy interacts with a person’s inner self. The Sedona stones are the conduit between the earth’s energy and your energy. They allow you to hold a little piece of the earth’s timeless energy in the palm of your hand.  The rest is up to you.

Cleansing & Charging Sedona Stone

~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.

~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy.  A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.

The Power of Color

Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you.  A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality.  It contributes in what attracts you to it.  The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
