Overview

This Leading Edge work by Esther and Jerry Hicks, who present The Teachings of Abraham ®, will help you understand every relationship you are currently involved in, as well as every one you have ever experienced.

This book uncovers myriad false premises that are at the heart of every uncomfortable relationship issue, and guides you to a clear understanding of the powerful creative Vortex that has already assembled the relationships you have desired. Abraham will show you how to enter that Vortex, where you will rendezvous with everything and everyone you have been looking for.

Abraham says: "It is our desire to help you to solve the mystery of those seemingly impossible relationships; to sort out the details of joyously sharing your planet with billions of others; to rediscover the beauty of your differences; and, most of all, to reestablish the most important relationship of all: your relationship with the Eternal, Non-Physical Source that is really you...

"It is our desire that you experience an enhanced appreciation of your planet; your body; your family; your friends; your enemies; your government; your systems; your food; your finances; your animals; your work; your play; your purpose; your Source; your Soul; your past, your future, and, your present..."

    Makes Your Feel Like A Winner!

    I am a big fan of Esther and Jerry Hicks and have read and have enjoyed many of their books.

    The Vortex: Where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships, is the third in a series of four. It follows the wonderful Money, and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Wealth, Health, and Happiness. (FYI...the fourth book is about Spirituality, and the Law of Attraction.)

    The purpose of this book is to help you understand present and past relationships. To understand your relationships, you go into the vortex. "The Vortex is the place in which you feel good about yourself. It is the place in which you are closest to 'Source. 'Source' energy is like a vortex of good feelings, of liquid love (as Abraham puts it) of peace and well being, joy - everything that we naturally are."

    To access the vortex, you do things that make you feel good. It is in the space of the vortex that the law of attraction takes hold--your good feelings will guide you to other people with good feelings and WHAM...stuff starts happening like you meet your soul mate!

    When we are in alignment--in the vortex--we draw all good things to us--people, situations, etc. It's a win-win.

    Once we are in alignment with our Source, we connect with our higher selves; with the God within us.

    Ultimately, The Vortex guides us through the exercises that will make us feel good about ourselves and our relationships.

    I am an interior designer specializing in Feng Shui, and I have practiced the law of attraction for years and have helped numerous clients of mine manifest their desires using the LOA. As I did in my review of MONEY, I highly recommend the award winning book, HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT: BEAUTIFY, DETOXIFY & ENERGIZE YOUR LIFE, YOUR HOME & YOUR PLANET along with THE VORTEX, for a few more secrets to finding and keeping love and relationships. Finally, the original THE LAW OF ATTRACTION is still a terrific primer.

    Ester and Jerry Hicks have written a clear and easy to follow guide to help you live your higher purpose. Highly recommend!

    Great reading.

    Bascially, when you are in teh vortex, you are attracting people into your life that will enhance it. This is a great concept and if you are into the law of attraction, this might be a great book for you. I gleaned many insights and thought the book had great advice, even if it is on the metaphycical side.

    After this book, you'll look at relationships in a new different way. I highly recommend it to couples, spouses, parents, and  basically any problematic relationship that needs to be turned around. 
    I suggest you get this book in combination with The Magic by Rhonda Byrne and follow the gratitude practice for relationships while opening your mind to the Vortex teachings. 
    5 stars for excellence, above and beyond ! I own all Abraham Teachings series and all four The Secret.

    Abraham's Laziest work

    Esther Hicks, who writes this book for the nonphysical intelligence Abraham, creates this vapid book that rattles on and on, offering nowhere near as many useful processes as Abraham's formal materials (particularly Ask and It is Given). This might be one of the most useless of all her books, though it placed on the New York Times Bestseller list. My recommendation for Abers is to listen to CDs on the same subjects covered within this book, particularly relationships, and don't bother picking this one up. Most of it is a reiteration of things covered in workshops already.

    Though there are no new revelations, it is always a great pleasure to see the new direction of the Abraham materials. This one focuses on the concept they refer to as The Vortex, formerly referred to as vibrational escrow. I see no value in this book, except possibly a false epiphany one may feel at some point within it. But again, if you are just looking for Abe's validation and wishful thinking, it will keep you in good company throughout the night.

    The co-creative team of Abraham-Hicks touches my life again with the Vortex!

    What an incredible book! I've moved slowly towards this explanation of life. I started with Wayne Dyer and branched out to Deepak Chopra, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson and Neale Walsch to name a few of the authors who have grabbed my imagination. The Vortex is our place where all our desires lay in wait for us to align ourselves with them. We find it when we let go of our need to control all aspects of our lives and allow life to bring us our greatest possibilities. There is a DVD companion to this book. Unfortunately, B & N doesn't carry it. The CD included with the book is a nice bonus. I keep it in my car so I can feel inspired to have my best life whenever I'm driving. I've never been disappointed with the works of Abraham-Hicks!

    The words from Abraham are LIFE CHANGING!

    The Vortex is another wonderful, inspiring, and life changing book written by Esther and Jerry Hicks, via the channeling of Abraham. I have read ALL of their books and I believe that this is one of their best. If you have never read any of their books, you may want to start with "Ask And It Is Given", as it gives a full background on who Abraham is and how Esther channels this entity. Read this book with an open mind and heart, and you will forever be a stronger and more empowered human being. We truly do CREATE our own lives through our thoughts and emotions. It is amazing to have found this information and to be able to use it's concepts in my everyday life. If you are reading this review, then you MUST buy this book. You won't be sorry!

    Interesting book

    I read most of this after knowing about Abraham-Hicks and Law of Attraction for a few years. Interest, although that I did not finish it reminds me that it did not draw me in quite the way "Ask and It Is Given" did.

    Interesting topics around relationships and other life circumstances.

    Highly Recommended!

    If you have no previous knowledge of Esther & Jerry Hicks and their writing, this is not the book to start off with. You really should have some "beginners" knowledge of The Laws of Attraction. If you are familiar with their work, this is an amazing book you must add to your collection!

    THE VORTEX - are you there?!

    What is thrilling about this book, this subject, this precise moment in time is that - you will not be experiencing the thrill of understanding what the heck it means to be IN THE VORTEX- unless you are precisely at THAT point in your spiritual advancement and, perhaps, familiar with Abraham. I suspect that anyone who will read this comment is because that person is vibrating at the level of perfect attraction. Have you wondered WHY there are "entities" such as Abraham, Zeth, Ramtha, etc. making every possible effort to "guide" us? Why do we have to be guided? Where are we going? We are supposed to have complete understanding-although seem to forget soon after hitting the pavement-of what we are going to carry out in our physical bodies. Reading The Vortex and listening to Abraham on the CD attached to the book brings not only clarity to some exciting concepts but it compels you to think beyond what you ever imagined your head could think about "creating!"

    And what is the ultimate goal? Why being in The Vortex? What is the value of not being in default versus knowing what it takes to be In the Vortex!? Let's see if I may challenge myself enough to remain in The Vortex and....make all my virtual-dreams come true.

    Thank you Abraham! This book came to me precisely at the time that I was asking for the answers provided. You rat! You also provided enough material to make me think incessantly for another life time!
    [Talk about The Law of Attraction! I heard about this book last week, went and bought it and read it the same day, and here is a request for a comment on it! Woo! Hoo!]

    Now, you HAVE to go read: Travis S. Taylor, Ph D's THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE SECRET!!! You will die with excitement!

    The Vortex is the real "secret"

    What The Secret DVD & book left out is contained in the Abraham material.
    This is the latest of their work and the Q&A format makes it easier to
    absorb. The Vortex is espeically helpful with relationships. I have given it to friends with relationship issues & they have responded very positively to it.
