Power Places in SEDONA
Aluna Joy's favorite sacred spaces and more

Huge cave in Boynton Canyon with ruins near by.

SO... you are coming to visit Sedona ... and you want to know what to do.
Here are some suggestions to get you started.

Sedona is the land that sings to you when you open your heart and listen. The red rock is full of iron for memory, and crystal for energy. It is unique and magical. The canyons whisper and the ancients echo ageless wisdom. Uncountable petroglyph and ruins sites stand as ancient sentinels. Come with respect, an open mind, and always remember follow the path in your heart.

Flat rock on east side of Cathederal Rock on Full Moom July 15th 2011.

Sacred Lands that I LOVE

  I like Fay Canyon. It is my church. Go all the way to the end of the trail and you will find a place where you can climb up to the top of the canyon. A wonderful peaceful view. This canyon triggers wonderful past life memories in me so I love it. It is a cool sound chamber there also.

  I like the west side of Cathedral Rock at sunset at Crescent Moon Park. On the trail, go past the place where the 2 rivers join together for about 1/8 mile to get to Buddha beach. Very cool and a grid point to sacred places all over the world. Lots of stacked stones

  I like the east side Cathedral Rock at full moon. Go up the trail until you see a big flat rock and watch the moon rise. POWERFUL!

  I also love the Grandfathers Cave up on Thunder MT. You can see it from 89A at Safeway. It is filled with ancient grandfathers. Very cool and healing. The trail is hard to find... again follow your heart. We made an essence here. It is wonderful for letting go of issues and learning to hear the earth's song. http://www.alunajoy.com/essences.html

  I like the very end of Soldiers Pass Trail where there is a small arch that is a great mediation spot! Keep to the right on the trail. The arch is on the right near the end of the canyon. It is SO CLEAR there. Great for re-booting your spirit.

  I love Chimney Rock and the flat rock between Chimney and Thunder Mountain. I live just down the street from this one so I am partial to this place. I love to mediate there is the morning. Just below just off of Andante road there is a Tibetian Stupa.

  Boynton Canyon has ruins on the right side of the canyon just past the resort. A ancient grandmother holds space there for her children and sits with a huge mountain lion. She makes you work for any messages you might receive. She is what I call tough love : ) but you will like her energy.

   V-BAR-V RANCH Sedona's sun dagger! An incredible solstice/equinox calendar and a easy walk. The SUN marks the passage of time across a huge ancient solar panel, one of very few worldwide. The shadow in the stones apear from a worked wedged rock in a crevice creates a light and shadow show across the cliff face. The precise times of the vernal equinox and summer solstice—important events for planting and harvesting—are tracked by light and the sun’s transition across the southwestern sky.

  I got a few others favorites but they are not on a map ; )

Remember . . . Sedona is full of spiritual fluff these days, as our city has monetized the spiritual draw of Sedona quite effectively. So make sure you use your instincts to choose what you participate in. Just follow your heart and you will have a magical time.
