What is the Vortex? (the What, Why & How)
Even those listening to Abraham regularly sometimes find themselves asking, “What is the vortex again?”
And those who don’t listen to Abe can be confused by the lingo.
Since I use the term often, here’s a quick reminder about what the vortex is and how to get in:
The vortex is Abraham’s term for alignment to Source energy. (Or whatever you call Universe, God, All That Is, etc.)
Being in the vortex means you’re at one with who you really are, you’re feeling fab, and in vibrational alignment to your desires. It’s represented by feelings like enthusiasm, inspiration, passion, joy, and appreciation.
Being out of the vortex means you’re energetically kinked, not letting in the good stuff you’ve been calling in. It often feels frustrated, hopeless, fearful, or angry.
Here’s Abraham defining the vortex back in 2009:
“What do you mean? What is a Vortex?” A Vortex is a vibrational state of being that is a precursor of all positive motion forward of all that is. It’s like, encapsulated, condensed, straight-up Source. It’s pure positive energy. It’s the holding tank. It’s the anchor. It’s the touchstone. It’s the place where all dreams and wishes and hopes are held until we find vibrational alignment with them.
It’s the eternal pool of wellbeing to which each of us have added mightily along the path of our physical experience. Abe in San Diego, California on 9/19/2009
The reason you want to be IN the vortex is because it feels good.
That’s reason enough, since it’s the basis of all desires. (The only reason we ever want anything is because we think having, being or doing it will make us feel good/better.)
Being in the vortex means you’re experiencing the kind of alignment that fosters magic and miracles. It’s where you get inspired answers to your questions. It’s where things come together beautifully. It’s where you feel on top of the world!
You can tell whether you’re in or out of the vortex based on how you feel.
When you feel good, you’re in. When you feel crappy, you’re not in.
The vortex is also where you want to take action from. That “aligned” state is a great time to make the phone calls, place the orders, sign the agreements, say “I do,” create the business plan, etc.
Because if you do anything outside the vortex, it’s not likely to pay off in ways you’d prefer.
So getting in is pretty important for having a life of ease and flow like deliberate creators know it can be.
While the typical question is: “Ok, so how do I get in?” it’s more a matter of what am I doing to take myself out?
Because if we just stopped doing the stuff that kinks our alignment (worrying, fretting, resenting, doubting, fearing, blaming, judging, etc.), then it’s natural to be in.
Here’s my real world example:
My blind kitty Elvis is playing underneath my chair right now with a twist tie. Watching him makes me smile. It’s a quick ticket into the vortex for me.
Thinking I should be doing something else with my time takes me out. Feeling bad because he’s blind takes me out.
Feeling the privilege of living with this fabulous cat puts me right back in. Enjoying how easily entertained he is (and me, too, I guess) keeps me in.
Getting in the vortex isn’t tricky or complicated.
It’s way easier and more simple than we sometimes think.
And that’s partly why it’s overlooked and underpracticed, along with believing we have to work hard for our reward.
Because it may be as simple as watching the cat play with a twist tie.
