Just curious to see other people's answers regarding the amount of time they spend in the Vortex on an average day during waking hours - percentage-wise. I've read that the ideal to strive for is to spend 90% of your day inside the Vortex, and 10% outside it in order to experience enough contrast to launch new desires.

As for me, it's difficult to calculate of course and I may be completely wrong, but the number that comes to my mind is 30%. This might seem low, but it feels very high for me, compared to the past, when I'd be in the Vortex 5-10% of the time, if even that. This is the amount of time that I spend completely in flow, where I don't have a care in the world and I am just grateful and appreciative, even joyous.

The remainder of the time I mainly spend between worry and contentment, sometimes lower (I'm not totally sure if contentment and hopefulness are in the Vortex, but since my emotions fluctuate a lot, it's rarely a pure emotion and I'll be feeling the emotions above and below it as well. Only when I'm at optimism for at least a solid 5-minute stretch do I feel securely in the Vortex)

Even as little as 30% has led to some really cool manifestations!

It would also be good to hear whether this 'Vortex time' is self-induced through vibrational work you do on yourself, or if it just happens naturally. I'd say 20% induced by vibrational work, 10% naturally (although of course the two are influenced by each other, as Vortex-time attracts more Vortex-time).

The way things are going, I think there's a strong possibility that I can ramp this up to 50% or more in a month's time :D

What about you?

Fantastic question! This relates to an Abraham quote on the subject :

The things that we would be asking ourselves is, "What proportion of my day am I in vibrational harmony with my desires, which means, how much of my day am I happy, glad, eager, fulfilled, satisfied, complimentary? And what percentage of my day am I ornery, irritated, frustrated, or blaming?" And you don't have to do 100%, you don't have to do 90%, you don't have to do 80%. If you could even get around 55% feeling better, than not feeling so good—you'd have significant movement in what begins to happen in your experience.

In the last three days I've been about 80-90% in, since I had a very lifting event. I am coming back to normal with about 40-50% now, when it used to be lower. It gets easier with time, so just enjoy the knowledge that with time you'll get there:).

Another thing to consider - there are different levels of being in the vortex. Optimism and positive expectation are in there, but the true, ultimate power is in the higher ones - ecstasy, eagerness, love, appreciation, joy, passion, freedom, empowerment. So it's not only about being in the vortex, it's about getting even higher and "milking" the highest states you can. I really do believe that everytime you get there, even if it's for a few moments, you will never be the same person again.

I love your last point, it's so true. I think the reason why my meagre 30% has resulted in so many impressive manifestations is because when I consciously get into the vortex, I purposely go as high as I can go - often all the way to pure joy.

That's awesome! I'm glad you feel your getting closer =)

For me, I would say around 45-50% of the day, lately I would shoot higher, more like 80% because I've had a few manifestations finally happen... one that I've been working on for awhile, so I ve been feeling great these past few days.

Being in the vortex for me is just... content, accepting, carefree... I don't worry. I feel like I'm invincible, safe... I know it'll work out. Id say 90% of my manifestations happen when I'm there. Its great... sometimes its exciting, sometimes very calm. I have a list of quotes I love and when I sit and just read them for awhile I get into the vortex really quick... meditation and going for walks or playing with my son outside when the weathers nice always help too. I never really try to get in the vortex. I just try to feel better whenever I can and sometimes I get there, sometimes I don't. I still have things to work on though. So my ultimate goal is to get there and stay there more often, so I can move on to bigger things in my life... I feel I'm making some good progress. =)

80%, that must feel fantastic :) One day soon I'll join you there...

I am one of those people who varies from day-to-day.

On a good day, I might be in the Vortex nearly the whole day (today being one of those days)...say, 90% of the time today. This day has just flowed, with fantastic coincidences and just being happy.

For some reason, on other days, I struggle just to feel the Vortex at all. It takes me time to get there, and I am lucky if I hit 10%.

I am working very, very hard to even this out...to discover what makes it work on the good days, and what sets me off-track on the bad days.

This was pure honesty on my part...I have to say, though, that if you graphed my days of the last year, the good days are getting more numerous, and the bad less frequent...Wade has much to do with this, and being in a happy environment, versus all the years previous to this living in a bad marriage and back further to a horrendous, nightmare-ish childhood. Also, I am actively trying now to achieve a better balance and to take responsibility for my own happiness.
