Ahhhh... the vortex. The place where all our manifestations wait patiently for us to get on their level and finally receive them.
If you're new to the term "vortex" it's basically just an analogy that Abraham Hicks (the best Law of Attraction teacher of all time) created to help us visualize a place where all our manifestations are first created vibrationally, before we can see, smell, taste, or touch them in this physical, three dimensional, world.
Because, as the Universe would have it, when you ask it is given. Meaning, when you want something, you automatically think it into existence and it becomes real (energetically).
So even though you can't see it (yet) in "real life", it does indeed already exist as a vibrational reality, as a possibility in the quantum field.
This is why the concept of the vortex is so important. In order to manifest all the goodies, you gotta get in the vortex, your vortex! The energetic place where everything you've ever wanted already exists.
Without being in the vortex, A.K.A. feeling really f-ing good (a majority of the time, at least) it will be hard for you to realize your manifestations, which have already manifested there, so to speak.
So today, I would love to share with you guys, in no particular order, some of my personal favorite ways to get into the vortex. Because if you can get in, and stay in, your vortex (enough of the time) manifesting will become easy, breezy and beautiful. Just like a cover girl.

Napping is a great hack for resetting your vibration, especially mid-day. If you feel you're quickly approaching a slippery slope of unnecessary negativity, pause for a little snooze and then RESET when you wake up. (Don't just pick back up where you left off. Start fresh upon reawakening.)
Since music carries its own frequency, it's a super duper easy way to hack yours. It's extra helpful to create playlists in advance that are sure to put you in a certain mood.
I personally keep a playlist that always makes me happy no matter what and also one for when I feel sad and need to cry. Trust me, it helps!
If you watch follow me on instagram you probably already know that nothing get's me into the vortex quicker than moving my body in ways that please me. Doesn't matter if it's salsa, ballet, contemporary or just freeflowing.Dancing is life.
4. Sun Bathing
Basking in the glory of the sun is a surefire way to energize yourself with pure white light and get some vitamin D at the same time. Can't go wrong (unless you forget sunscreen, of course)!
5. Regular Bathing
Something about floating in a nice warm tub just does the trick for me every time. Getting into the vortex is so easy when you're weightless and you leave all your worries outside the bathroom. Bath time = sacred time.
Or, if you want to be extra fancy you can visit a floatation spa, where they have big sensory deprivation tubs full of healing epson salt. Zero gravity baby.
Although I'm not generally a huge fan of running, at times I do find it helpful to put on my magical Bose headphones, listen to an inspirational jam, and run as fast as I can. Then I leverage the runners high to help me get (and stay) in my vortex. Works like a charm.
Obviously, no list about getting into the vortex is complete without the oldest technique in the book, meditation. This daily practice of mine is one of the most important things I do to get and stay in my happy place! 15 minutes a day is literally all it takes.
If you need help with this one you might want to check out some of my articles on how to meditate!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Gratitude is the attitude, especially when trying to access your vortex. It's one of the quickest ways to get and stay there. So do it! Every day, all the time.
If you're not sure how, read this.

Let's just put it this way, having an orgasm is a pretty surefire way to get into the vortex. #enoughsaid
Lightening the load of physical stuff in my life helps me feel less dense, which in turn, gets me closer to my natural high-vibe, light-filled, self. It's one of my favorite go-to activities for feeling better when I need a little pick me up.
Here are a few helpful decluttering tips if you're ready to take on the challenge.

12. Acts of Kindness
When I do something nice for someone else, I immediately feel connected to my highest self. And that, my friends, is exactly how you want to feel when trying to get into your vortex, connected to the real you.
13. Hugging (The Right People)
While I am extremely picky about who I let touch my body and get into my energetic space, I do find it very healing and elevating to give and receive long hugs with the right people. Heart to heart baby.
14. Tarot Reading
Reading Tarot cards is such a fun way for me to get in touch with my divine side and really feel connected to my intuition. Doing it for myself when I want clarity is always nice, but doing it for others is what really fires me up.
Plus, I absolutely love my Wild Unknown Tarot Deck, so that doesn't hurt.
15. Walking in Nature
Nature + moving my body + breathing deeply = bliss.
When you spend time in nature you naturally begin to attune to its high frequency. Nature is always in the vortex, so get out there if you want to be in yours too!
Using crystals as tools for elevating my energy and the energy of my spaces (office and home) is a really subtle, but nice, way to feel those vortex vibes. Meditating with, wearing, and decorating with crystals are a few of my favorite ways to use them.
If you're new to crystals, here's a list of some of my favorite ones you can start with!
As the self-proclaimed queen of affirmations, I couldn't forget to add this one to the list. I use affirmations to get myself into the vortex all. the. time.
If you need help with this I wrote a whole book about affirmations and how to get them to actually work for you. It's called #ActuallyICan: The Art of Affirming Yourself to Greatness. It will help you tremendously to get from wherever you are emotionally (on any topic) to where you would rather be (A.K.A. into the vortex).
Because I'm such a body person, yoga is one of my favorite ways to get into the vortex. The combination of breath, movement, and presence gets me on some kind of next level and I always find myself very aligned (mentally, energetically, and physically) after I practice.
19. Making Art
When I make art, I can't not be in the vortex. Creation is what the vortex is all about after all!
20. Watching a Funny Show
If I'm going to spend any time watching T.V. you know it's gonna be something that makes me laugh. Why? Because laughter is healing, and healing feels good, and feeling good get's you into the vortex.
21. Connecting With High Vibe Peeps
When in the presence of high vibe peeps your vibration will naturally rise to meet theirs, so it's a good way to get into the vortex. Just hang with others who are already in theirs!
And if you're not sure where to find those, I recently created a Facebook group for people who like to own their power and change their life, so start there!
22. Reading Inspirational Books
Just by reading an inspirational text you naturally begin to attune to the frequency of it! For example, I couldn't stay out of the vortex even if I wanted to when I'm immersed in A Course in Miracles (or any of these other books that are absolutely life changing)!
23. Listening to Abraham Hicks
Obviously, the creator of the term "vortex" needs to be on this list of ways to get into the vortex! Listening to my favorite spiritual teacher of all time, Abraham, is the best way for me to remember who I really am, what's really going on, and how to get everything I want out of life. #thebest
I especially love listening to their talks on Youtube.
24. Tiny Puppies
How can you NOT be happy when you're in the presence of a puppy? Am I right?
