Sedona on my mind...

#1 Aug 27, 2011
I visited Sedona in July of this year. My best friend and I spent a week there.
I instantly fell in love with Sedona. Its beauty - its people - its energy...just everything about it and around it felt like home to me.
So now, here I am...back home in Connecticut and there is still not one day that goes by where I don't have to think of Sedona. I'm totally homesick for those red rock mountains, the Oak Creek and the unbelievable positive energy!
I am longing for that inner peace - for that feeling "it's all good"!:o)
My question: Did Sedona put a spell on me?

It's called Red Rock Fever, and it sounds like you have it. I do too, and try to get out there at least 1-2 times a year. Let me know what some of your favorite hikes and places are, would look forward to swapping stories.

I need a "barf bag"!! I do not understand what is so special about the desert to people from back east? The views are amazing, but the country is rugged and dry scorpions,snakes,spiders,deser t rats as big as chiwawas..My family were pioneer's of Sedona, I am a 4th generation here. They never though the old red dirt was worth anything. On my grandpas side they gave the 160 acres of land away, at the base of Coffeepot Rock..
If they had known all the rich granola's from back East, or Californians(land of the fruits and nuts) and movie stars were going to com in and buy the land for criminal high prices they would have kept it in the family! Too bad for me they had more common sense!

Native, it's a shame that you feel so negatively about your home city. Despiite the implied insults directed at those who love Sedona, I can understand that there must be reasons you feel the way you do. I'd be curious to hear some. Is it a jobs thing? For me, drought like conditions and concerns about water allocation would be issues if I had permanent residency there. But, seriously why does it seem that the natives have a negative feeling about Sedona and the Verde Valley for that matter. Do people in Flagstaff think differently? Very curious to know.

Nope, they do not in fact two generations of my family were born at the Flagstaff Hospital(the old one that was across from FMC) and lived up there for a while to get away from what Sedona has become.. I think we are just all tired of the "Disneyland fantasy thing" that goes on with other people,from other parts of the country, who came in and changed Sedona from a neat small town to live in, with beautiful views, to a Vortex Land Earth Mother Ship where that draws the loonies/hippies tourist destination..Don't even get me started on the "jeep tours thing in 100 degree plus heat tearing up our back-country for profit..! Then on the other-hand we have the ultra rich snobs that think they are better than all us little local people who have been here for generations.. A person gets tired of those two types real quick.. It has gotten rare to see normal, middle class people living in Sedona raising a family, because the entire climate of the town does not promote that type of people any longer..

Sedona Goddess Temple closed as brothel
SEDONA -- The Phoenix Police Department has been conducting a lengthy investigation into the activities at the Phoenix Goddess Temple in Phoenix. During their investigation it was discovered that some of the individuals suspected of criminal activity in the Phoenix Temple were also traveling to and from locations in Sedona.
On Wednesday, three search warrants were served at West Sedona addresses at the same time Phoenix PD was executing a search warrant at the Phoenix Goddess Temple. The three Sedona locations were the Sedona Temple at 2945 Southwest Drive, the Sedona Temple Parsonage at 185 Roadrunner Drive and a residence at 395 Inspirational Drive.
Among individuals arrested in Sedona was Goddess Temple founder Tracy Elise, 50, who was involved in a similar suspected brothel in Seattle, shut down by law enforcement in 2009. She was arrested in Sedona based on a Maricopa County Grand Jury warrant. Elise faces charges of prostitution, illegal control of a criminal enterprise, pandering and operating a house of prostitution.
Also arrested in Sedona were Tamara Brusso, 53, and Niki Faldemolaei, 51. Brusso was arrested based on a Grand Jury warrant from Maricopa County, and Faldemolaei was arrested on charges of participating in a criminal syndicate, keeping a house of prostitution, receiving earnings of prostitution, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Sedona Police Commander Marlayne Hatler says, the investigation involving Phoenix undercover officers and Sedona PD surveillance has been ongoing and more arrests are expected to be made. The Maricopa County indictment listed 33 names.
Yes living in Sedona is so wonderful! Defiantly you would want to transplant yourself to this tourist freak show attraction!
Just another great reason to live in wonderful "Cult-Vortex-Mother-ship Sedona"

Just fallow the Hindus/Hare krishna's/and other robed people walking down the streets of Sedona "wearing their religion" I use the term religion loosely because these are corrupt cults! Making lots of money off people just like you Mr.Connecticut with Sedona on your mind!!
I especially like the man who thinks he is Jesus with long Robes and his staff walking down the sidewalks of Sedona!
Then we have the Mango Mother Earth people.. They have a big expensive resort for you to spend your money at!http://www.sedonamagoretrea t.org/
Oh' yes and did you know there are places in Sedona that are "no fly zones" because UFO's land there and they are Vortexes, where you can absorb energy if you stand on them! I can go on and on!
But according to the "elite people of the independently wealthy" They send the poor trash type people to Cottonwood where they have resources to take care of them! Sedona does not want to dirty their hands with helping poor people!
They have healing centers instead!

LMAO - Radical Rebel could not be more right. I lived there in the verde valley for 10 years. Sedona was beautiful and just plain weird. But if you can afford to live in connecticutt, you will probably fit in just fine in Sedona.
