If you’re reading this post, I’m going to assume you already know a few things about The Law of Attraction, and how your thoughts create your reality.
- You know the basics behind how The Law of Attraction works,
- You’re familiar with Abraham Hicks’ teachings on the vortex and the 5 steps to alignment.
- You know that the key to manifesting anything you want is to focus on your own positive energy.
But, all of this still leaves you wondering…
How, exactly, do I do that?
It’s one think to know that you should think positive thoughts and build momentum towards your goals, it’s another thing to be able to do it, consistently, every single day.
So, what is the secret to staying in the vortex, all of the time?
Note: In this post, I cover a couple of the basics, but if you want to go into more depth, I recommend you check out this training on getting into the vortex.
How To Stay In The Vortex
To start: I’ve got good news. Even if you feel like you often struggle to stay in the vortex, you’re actually way ahead of the curve. Once you know what the vortex is and can get there intermittently, learning to stay in a positive state consistently is not as difficult as you might think.
In other words:
If you can get into the vortex deliberately (even for a short period of time, or quasi-randomly), then you can stay in the vortex consistently.
It’s all about practice (more on that in a second). Here are a few strategies to get you started.

Catching Negative Energy Early
Firstly, if you are already in the vortex, then most of your work is already done for you. When you’re in the vortex (when you feel excited, passionate, loving, and eager), you already have a ton of positive momentum working in your favor.
From this state, the easiest way to remain there is simply to maintain a positive focus, regardless of any thoughts or circumstances that may crop up around you.
This is called ‘catching negativity early’ because the aim is to stop any negative thoughts before they have time to gain momentum.
This is a game of awareness and focus. It’s ok to acknowledge a negative thought (often, trying to deny a bad situation only makes it worse), but you keep your attention focused on the positive.
For many people, becoming aware of the earliest signs of negativity is a new experience. Too often, we let subtle negative thoughts creep into our mindset before we realize they are a problem. When you practice catching this negativity early, you monitor your mind for small disturbances.
These may be:
- Minor complaints
- Fleeting negative thoughts about ‘what if’
- Sarcastic comments.
As you train your mind to notice these, you can stop yourself, often before the thought ever matures. With a little practice, it’s a surefire way to remain positive, consistently.
Detaching from Thoughts
Another great method for staying in the vortex is to detach from your thoughts.
As you detach, you take away the power of any negative thought to adversely impact your mood. You become more centered, and more aligned with your natural, positive energy, similar to what happens when you quiet the mind in meditation.
To detach, you train your mind to rest more and more clearly on your sense of internal resonance, to the point where your resonance (the subtle variation in how you feel) becomes more important than any thought you may have.
As you focus on this energy, your thoughts will begin to appear more fleeting, because you become more centered in the eternal joy of the present moment.
Step Back, Reset, and Repeat
The next tactic you can use when staying in the vortex is to make it a habit to step back and reset your energy, consistently as you move throughout your day.
Many people focus on using meditation to reset their energy (and meditation is a great routine to start), but often people overlook the fact that meditation is only one of the many tools available to you.
Just as important as sitting down for 10-20 minutes at a time is to train yourself to constantly step back.
You can do this for as little as one cycle of breath. I recommend trying to remember to step back for 30 seconds, at least once an hour. This will do wonders to help you remain calm, centered, and more focused.
Practice, Practice, Practice
Lastly, it’s important to note that each of these strategies can be developed as a habit.
At the risk of sounding obvious: the key to remaining in the vortex is to practice remaining in the vortex.
Many people overlook the simple power of this idea. But, if you can consciously find a positive state of energy (even for a single second), then staying with that energy is simply a matter of repetition and practice.
At first, you may be in the vortex for a few seconds at a time, or only when amazing things happen to you, but, gradually, you can learn to lengthen the time and frequency you spend there.
