A vortex is the swirling out of control feeling of everything spinning inward or outward. When I find myself in a swirly place, I feel like I’m getting pulled in a direction I have not chosen. A real vortex is not out of control, and in fact spins around an imaginary axis. This is true in nature, such as the cloud formation in the photo attached to this blog courtesy of www.runningdogphotography.com.
When I feel like I’m in the vortex, I know I need an anchor to become centered. This is when I stop the spinning; breathe and touch my Bless Your Heart logo. I am immediately more peaceful and steady. I can then extract myself from the vortex and make a decision more clearly. This really does work, try it.
