What in the Vortex?!
One of my favorite guys posted something at Good Vibe U I wanted to run by you here.
He shared how much he was enjoying the Scream movies: how fun they are to watch, even (or especially?) while cringing on the edge of his seat waiting for the next thing to pop out at him.
I can totally relate to his observation that that doesn’t sound like fun in the vortex. I mean, we’re talking about getting tremendous delight in something that doesn’t seem very high vibing.
Quick primer on the vortex: it’s Abraham lingo for high vibrational alignment and is associated with feelings of joy, love, passion, inspiration, etc. Abraham’s standard answer about getting what we want is to “get in the vortex, and THEN …” (Because anything you do from the vortex has a Midas touch to it. Success is guaranteed. Plus it feels fab to be there.) So deliberate creators pay a lot of attention to getting in the vortex.
I’ve wondered the same thing about enjoying other things that might not seem super high vibing. Like:
- sad songs
- crime dramas
- mystery novels
- telling someone to kiss off
- sarcastic comedies
… it seems there are many things some of us take enormous enjoyment in that don’t seem very vortexy.
In fact, did you hear Abraham talking to the rapper about swear words? This was hilarious:
Back to the subject, what’s going on that we love to be scared, feel sad, get challenged, smoke or swear?
Case in point, I absolutely LOVE the drama in Kim Falconer’s fantasy fiction novels! And even though it might not sound like it on facebook, I’m loving this impossible puzzle I’m struggling to finish of the last supper.
Sometimes I think we’re just experiencing the exhilaration of moving up the vibrational scale. Sometimes I think maybe we have too much judgment about what’s vortexy.
But I’d like to hear your thoughts about it.
Scream might not put YOU in the vortex, but is there something that does that might make someone else say “ewww!”? What’s up with feeling good about things that don’t feel good?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this!
