Consciousness, Spirituality, Vortexes & Crystals • We Weblog The World

It’s been awhile since we have been final in Sedona, however it’s house to all issues non secular and naturally, identified for its vortexes.

From almost each level in Sedona, you’re greeted with the vivacious and ever so energizing purple rocks.
