Legend has it that there are vortexes in the Red Rocks of Sedona, Arizona that hold an almost sacred energy. Places where magnetic forces tug at each other and emit an energy to those who stand near them. It’s best to go there with a spiritual guide, I think, though some people choose to find these magical spots on their own.
Not me. I don’t want to wonder whether I’ve found the right spot, or discover that I was supposed to look for the twist of the juniper trees and mistakenly inspected different trees altogether. Sometimes I think that I have no psychic awareness at all. Ghosts and angels and vortex energies could be jumping in and out of, and all around my body and I’d never even blink. I knew I needed an expert. So we chose to book a Red Rocks Tour with a Psychic Reading, because if you’re going to do the Red Rocks vortexes, you ought to do it right.
Our guide Kassandra picked us up on Sunday morning and took us into the red dirt of the rocks.
We passed a small Buddhist monument and walked in circles around it as we concentrated on praying along with others walking their circles. We passed Chakra flags and Tibetan prayer flags and stopped to consider our auras.
We climbed back into a shady spot and sat on the red rocks one at a time as Kassandra gave each of us a reading. She started by visualizing a rose and seeing what color it filled with as she contemplated each of us. My mother’s rose was purple. That meant something specific for her. My daughter’s was blue and purple. Changing colors. That meant something, too. And mine was a vibrant green, like new grass. She said I was on the verge of something. That the energy around me was humming with anticipation and that something big and wonderful was coming soon. I believed her. (Who wouldn’t?)
She asked me my birthday. I told her at the end of August. She convened with the energies swirling around us and said that usually big changes take place around someone’s birthday but that mine would come sooner than that. She wasn’t sure what the big event would be, but she knew it was going to be good. It was going to be the start of something new.
Which is all very vague, of course.
But if you let yourself travel to the Red Rocks and seek out the spirituality and energies that people travel there to explore and embrace, don’t you have to let yourself lean into it a little? Don’t you have to wonder if there are mystical powers at work?
Because I let myself wonder, and I think it may have recently happened. 🙂 Big changes have occurred. That’s all I’ll say. Thanks, Kassandra!
What color do you think your rose would be? (And don’t say you don’t believe in it all. Give into the folly or consider your rose gray.)
