A Day in the Vortex

ADITV426

It is possible to immerse yourself in a high vibrational atmosphere to the extent where you are forever changed.Though the work of deliberate creation is a day by day process, gathering together with others of similar intent is a catalyst pushing the leading edge beyond where it has gone before.

It is our intent to utilize these 6 hours together not only to discuss & answer questions, but to collectively lift each other into the best feeling space we can find & stay there for as long as possible.

The Vortex Appreciation Group: Unconditional

vortexSabby

Unconditional Love is written about, talked about & considered the pinnacle of spirituality. Yet we all fall so shot of the goal because it has become an “Upstream Attainment.” Tonight we look at how alignment with source & working with the Three Universal Laws of Manifestation point to not just Unconditional Love, but also Unconditional Living.

Especially for the Witch, “Bide the Witches’ Laws ye must in Perfect Love & Perfect Trust” softens into a process of keeping our vibrations high & our intentions tuned to seeing through the Eyes of Source.

There are so many ways into the Vortex. So many techniques, games, exercises & processes have been offered over the years. Yet if you make getting into the Vortex ‘work’ it can create the very resistance you seek to overcome.

In these weekly gathering, we take the work… out of the equation & really have a ball together. Though the conversations get deep, it is always uplifting & fun.

As we acknowledge that raising vibration is a gradual process, we drop the oars & let the current take us & turn us downstream, becoming the people our spirits have already become.

Admission is $10. Reservations Required.
