Lately, I’ve been on the look-out for something new to read, but nothing has interested me until today, when I came upon “The Call of Sedona —Journey of the Heart,” by Ilchi Lee. It reached out and grabbed my attention by embracing a phenomena that goes mostly unspoken of, unrecognized by some, yet something that remains ever present and awesome within its silence.
I experienced it for the first time in Sedona, but it can be felt in other places as well. When I was young, our family visited Sedona during summer vacation. I remember the blazing desert sunshine streaming through the windows of our motel room at 5:00 in the morning inciting us to get out of bed and begin our day. First, and as tourists do, we perused the gift shops. There was a small, almost black, stone bowl in one of them that had been formed, decorated and polished by hand. It was perfect and beautiful and I wanted it —I have always liked rocks —not fancy gems —just plain rocks —the smooth, rounded kind like you find at the bottom of a stream bed. The little stone bowl must have been very expensive, because we left there without it and continued on to the next activity, which was the jeep ride. And that’s when, looking out over the vast red rock vistas of Sedona, I felt it. Even as a little kid I was inspired by it, will never forget it, and I took lots of pictures, because I wanted to have a record of it when I returned home, but when I received the photos from the printer, IT wasn’t IN the pictures! I was so disappointed. I didn’t know then what a spiritual energy vortex even was, but I was trying to capture it on film.
The Amazon description of this book reads: “Several million visitors arrive in Sedona, Arizona, each year, captivated by her remarkable scenery, and majestic sunsets. They are also enticed by a hidden quality —the uplifting healing energy and sacred vibrations of Sedona’s spiritual vortexes. Here Ilchi Lee shares his Sedona experiences in an intimate, heart-expanding exploration of natural and spiritual mysteries. Through the profound meditations the author was guided to create in Sedona, anyone anywhere can experience the deep peace, joy, and messages of hope, healing, and guidance that Sedona offers. This is a guidebook like no other.”
