In 2000, I was drawn to write a small booklet called Talking to Hurricanes. It was a fictional account of a man who learned to mind meld with hurricanes. The ideas in the story were from what I was discovering about what vortices really are. They are formed by a dance of opposites. Cold air meets warm air. Voila. You get a vortex. If you look at this part of nature as a metaphor, it seems to be that a vortex represents what happens when you have two opposites wanting to combine and yet keep their integrity as uncombined at the same time. The stronger the two drives, the more intense the vortex.
So, how do we calm the storms that are showing up in nature with a greater frequency? Here is what I suggest. Work with your own inner opposites. As you, either you as an individual or you as part of a collective, learn to do this, what is outside of you will calm down in response. There are many ways you can go about learning to do this. That is for you to play with. It is a very worthy endeavor.
Two days ago, I was driving down the expressway and I felt a vortex forming between my solar plexus chakra and my heart chakra. It was so intense, I had to pull over. Waves of ecstasy were moving throughout my whole field. As wonderful as that felt, I knew I needed to ground the energy or I would have just left my body. I happened to have a grounding crystal in the car, a red jasper, and it was most helpful to hold while I concentrated on bringing a balance between the two chakra centers and sending the ecstatic waves into the earth herself. It took awhile but I think that energy was somehow helpful to the earth. She so appreciates what comes through us to her. It is a wonderful donation to make..
There are no formulas for doing this work. We are each so unique so you need to discover what works for you. But I plant some seeds here about the power of the vortex as a means for integration and transformation. Powerful mojo.
