About the Author

Excited about the clarity and practicality of the translated word from the Beings who call themselves Abraham, Esther and Jerry Hicks began disclosing their amazing Abraham experience to a handful of close business associates in 1986. Recognizing the practical results being received by themselves and by those people who were asking practical questions and then applying Abraham’s answers to their own situations, Esther and Jerry made a deliberate decision to allow the teachings of Abraham to become available to an ever-widening circle of seekers of how to live a happier life. Using their San Antonio, Texas, conference center as their base, Jerry and Esther have traveled to approximately 50 cities a year since 1989, presenting interactive Law of Attraction workshops to those leaders who gather to participate in this expanding stream of progressive thought. And although worldwide attention has been given to this philosophy of Well-Being by Leading Edge thinkers and teachers who have, in turn, incorporated many of Abraham’s Law of Attraction concepts into their best-selling books, scripts, lectures, and so forth, the primary spread of this material has been from person to person—as individuals begin to discover the value of this form of spiritual practicality in their personal life experiences. In November 2011, Jerry made his transition into Non-Physical, and now Esther continues to conduct the Abraham workshops with the help of her physical friends and co-workers and, of course, with the Non-Physical help of Abraham and Jerry. People are able to access Abraham directly by attending the seminars in person or by participating in the online live streaming of most events. There is also an extensive YouTube library of Abraham videos. Abraham—a group of uplifting Non-Physical teachers—present their Broader Perspective through Esther Hicks. And as they speak to our level of comprehension through a series of loving, allowing, brilliant, yet comprehensively simple essays in print and in sound, they guide us to a clear connection with our loving Inner Being, and to uplifting self-empowerment from our Total Self.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

I am a firm believer that we are all coming to a new perspective on the world we live in. It is not easy trying to get through the veils of misunderstanding. The Vortex takes us to that next level. It is so easy! And, the Vortex is easy to read. When reading the Vortex, the reader is so drawn in that you find yourself saying "Yes! I knew that!" and "Oh, thank goodness -- I am not crazy!!" This book will help guide you to remember what it is you have really been looking for all your life. It is light and fun! You feel so full and at peace at the end. The Vortex will become your way of life. I love knowing that life is supposed to be fun and lived with ease and joy. I love knowing that my life has been a perfect unfolding of what I have wanted to create all along. I love knowing this information.

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.
