“Get into the vortex.”
What is the Vortex. How do you get into it? How does it feel to be in the Vortex?
Being an Abraham-Hicks student for 12 years now, I have heard of the Vortex thousands of times.
I bet many can intellectually explain what it all means. I feel that only a few really know what it feels like. And it is difficult to explain a feeling and experience to another person. Each person must feel it for themselves.
Okay, the Vortex.
There’s this swirling thing that has everything I want in it. I just have to find a way to “get into it.” It is the vibrational nonphysical swirling place that contains all of my desires. So my job is to “just get into the Vortex!”
Okay, how do I do that?
It is an emotional journey. I have to think and/or act in ways that get me “into the vortex.”
Well, I could make lists of appreciation, but I have to be in the emotional vicinity of appreciation to be able to do it, says Abraham. Meaning, if I am all the way down are rage, hate, or even lower, it will be difficult to find things to appreciate.
I could meditate. There are many types of meditation out there or I can just pay attention to some type of room sound like Abraham recommends. For 15 minutes.
Or I could use “Get into the Vortex” meditations specifically made by Abraham-Hicks to get me “into the Vortex.”
Or I can pet my cat or dog, but I don’t have a cat or dog at the moment!
And then there are many other ways to get into the vortex like thinking of good memories, imagining happy scenarios, or by using one of Abraham’s processes.
I have found that there is a surefire way for ME to get INTO THE VORTEX. I would like to share my findings with you.
When I drink coffee and get on the treadmill and do a combination of walk, jog, and run for 30 minutes – I get there every single time. In other words, cardio gets me there. I like to pair one song on loop while I do my cardio, and ironically, these days it is a song called “Nowhere to Run” by Chris Jericho’s band Fozzy. While all of this is going on, I consciously think the best thoughts possible. ie: hype talk, self talk, cloth talk. All that action and activity keeps a certain part of my brain busy so that I can easily be in the present moment.
When I do a 20 minute session of DDP Yoga, I get there too. But it is a very specific way that I do it. I no longer listen or watch the yoga instructional videos, which do not get me there. Instead I have edited the routine to my liking and have it memorized. Thus my conscious mind is free to think what I want while I have some podcast or interview in the background. I find that some type of casual audio is the right pairing for a yoga session, not music. Guaranteed to get me into the vortex. I again think the best thoughts possible while my body and part of my brain are occupied with yoga and the podcast.
For me, I can make lists of appreciation or meditate all day long and not much happens. I have been meditating and making gratitude lists for many many years.
But if I move my body the right way, and think the right thoughts, while pairing it with the right audio content, I am there 100% of the time.
What does the Vortex feel like?
Well, I suppose it is different for every person.
For me, it is that magical feeling of powerfulness, happiness, joy, stillness, exuberance, passion. It is a real physical feeling in the body, not just an intellectual mind thing.
Goosebumps. Shivers. Hyped up feeling. Being super present in this moment, focused, and not thinking about anything else. No worries at all. Feels like flying or soaring.
Time stands still. Hours may pass or only a few minutes but it does not like feel like it either way.
My eyes readjust and I feel like there is a glow. Not only do I feel like my eyes are glowing, but my whole body feels like it is glowing.
Again, it is a FEELING, a physical feeling combined with an upliftment in the mind. Flow state. In the zone. Fully juiced. A natural high. It is not an intellectual thing. If I mindlessly make lists of things I love, I do not feel anything.
I also get there when I have great music playing and write (type) on my blog. But this could be just specific to me since I do love to write. Today, the musical choice is Def Leppard.
The same type of zone happens if I drive long distance on the highways under the right conditions, with the right amount of caffeine, the right music playing loudly, and thinking positive hyped up thoughts.
Sometimes when I drink coffee, already feeling uplifted, and do some hype talk with my friend, the zone becomes magnified too. Then truly magical and miraculous things happen.
So the goal, as Abraham says, is to find a way to get into the Vortex. And then take inspired action and do affirmations and things like that.
Everyone also finds themselves in the vortex at some point in the day according to Abraham. So when there, magnify it more by focusing on how it feels. I get what I think about and if I think about how great that sliver of Vortex feels like, more of that will come to me in the future.
There you have it. This is my understanding and definition of the Vortex. I assume this is what Abraham means when they say to “get into the vortex.” Your experience may vary!
There is definitely a way to get there consistently and figuring out your own specific formula is part of the process.
