vortex line

Small things I loved about Andromeda, all minor things about the world;

- canon gay turian couple
- a human that was raised by two Quarians - her godparents - and honours them with the name ‘vas Hyperion’
- everything about Sahuna ama Darav, Jaal’s true mother
- lesbian human/turian couple in the Vortex. They have no lines. But they totally gon fuk.
- literally nothing will ever make Evfra happy ever. he is the most eternally miffed cabbage man
- Rorik and Ljeta
- Vorn and how he’s a total dork. Flower Crown Krogan.
- how Bradley gets mad if you wear N7 armor, you ungrateful piece of cheese
- how you can canonly make your Ryder a dork of gargantuan proportions
- distressed Krogan really wants gingerbread cookies. someone bake for him. where’s Sahuna
- Jaal’s family home. life in an Angaran family is like eternal bumper cars. you cant not run into someone

Trust your Vortex

“The lining up of energy is what really matters. Once you come into alignment, your true heart’s desire will be satisfied. That’s just always the way that it is.

Sometimes people say, “I don’t really know what I want!”, and we say, get happy, and the Universe will give you what it knows you want. “Oh, but I don’t know what I want!”. Yes, you do, you’ve been putting it into the Vortex for a long time. You keep putting it in there, it’s there, it’s known, it’s real, and it’s understood. So just get happy, and watch it be delivered to you!

And so sometimes there’s just a little too much “hands-on”, there’s a little too much wanting to manipulate it into being. And that’s what’s causing all of the confusion.

Deliberate creators, you’re really interesting because you want to be deliberate creators, but you wanna be deliberate “doers”, creators, makers, thinkers, “happeners”, instead of deliberate allowers. It’s like you don’t understand that you’ve already created it, it’s already in the Vortex, and now you’re allowing what you’ve already put there to happen. It’s like you don’t trust your own Vortex!

And the reason you don’t trust your own Vortex is because you haven’t been allowing your own Vortex to flow to you freely. Because you’ve been micromanaging it, because you’ve been micromanaging everybody else, too. You get into this habit of trying to control things, instead of just getting into that place and trusting.”



Dowsing establishes exactly where a crystal should go in a layout or space, or on a map. It also helps select the right  crystals. If you are looking for an energy line in a space, dowsing rods will twitch and cross as you find the line. You can also ‘body dowse’ with your palm chakras or the bottom of your feet- your body tingles as though a current is running up your arms or legs. Dowsing has many other uses but these are the basics of how it is done.


- Hold your pendulum with the chain wrapped loosely around your hand and about a hand’s breadth of chain hanging down

- To establish ‘yes’ and ‘no’ hold the pendulum over your knee and ask “Is (state your name) my name?” The pendulum swings in a circle (not direction of swing) or backward and forward. This is your yes, repeat using a false name and this is your no. For a maybe the pendulum may shimmy a little or move sluggishly.

- Once you have established yes and no, ask “Is this the right crystal?” or “is this the correct place?” or whatever question is suitable for your task


- Loop the thumb and first finger of one hand together

- Place the thumb and finger of the other hand through the closed loop

- Ask your question and pull firmly, if the loop holds your answer is yes, if it pulls apart the answer is no


- Hold the rods loosely, one in each hand pointing forward. Step forward slowly. The rods swing inwards and cross over or outward as you reach a vortex energy line. With practise, you can use your yes and no movements to establish whether you have reached an earth energy or a water line, and so on.

If there are any issues, please let me know

If you are willing to get in the vortex about it.. your body will respond. You have the wherewithal to get any physical condition you are asking for. Could you get taller? Yes. Could you get stronger? Yes. Could you feel more vital? Yes. Can you change the nature of your physical body? Yes. But what if my hormones or my chemistry has changed? Well, your body has changed in response to your expectations. Let’s go deeper. Let’s talk about cellular expectations. Do I have the ability to focus my mind in such a way to influence the behavior of those cells? Absolutely! Most people don’t believe they can, so they don’t bother trying. In other words, most people just accept what is, and complain about it. Almost every behavior you see when people are wanting to reduce, or change their bodies in some way, almost all of that behavior is out-of-the-vortex behavior, where if they work hard, and struggle hard enough then they believe they will get results and they get the results to the degree that they expect them. But oh, wouldn’t it be wonderful to get in the vortex, to line up with who you really are, and from inside the vortex utilize the energy that creates worlds to flow towards something that you want. If a healer can influence wellness in another who is sick, surely that same healer can shift the cells in his own body!
—  Abraham Hicks (Esther Hicks)

Knots have long fascinated humans, appearing in art for thousands of years and generating entire fields of study. Until recently, however, the idea of a knotted fluid was purely theoretical. To knot fluids, researchers used 3D printing to create twisted hydrofoil shapes. When towed through water, fluid travels around the shape and spins up at the trailing edge, creating a knotted vortex ring. The knotted vortices were captured with 3D imaging, allowing scientists to observe how they evolve. So far the knots they’ve created have all been unstable, deforming until two vortex lines approach one another. Upon contact, the vortices disconnect and reconnect with one another, unraveling the knot. Intriguingly, these vortex reconnections seem remarkably similar to the vortex reconnections observed between quantized vortices in superfluids. (Video credit: D. Kleckner et al.)

These two lines are actually perfectly straight and parallel, but they look like they’re bulging outward in the middle. Stare at it for a while – is that a touch of motion sickness you feel, or did you just eat a bad taco?

The blue lines are tricking your brain into believing that you’re moving toward the image, in much the same way you use lines in a doodle to show which way something is moving. Your brain interprets lines as motion, like in Star Wars, where we knew they were going fast because the stars turned into a vortex of white lines in their windshield.

So why are the red lines bulging? Here’s where it gets really weird – that’s the way your brain expects them to look in the future.

5 Optical Illusions That Prove You Can’t Trust Your Own Mind


Vortices are one of the most common structures in fluid dynamics. In this video, Dianna from Physics Girl explores an unusual variety of vortex you can create in a pool. Dragging a plate through the water at the surface creates a half vortex ring, which can be tracked either by the surface depressions created or by using food dye for visualization. Vortex rings are quite common, but a half vortex ring is not. The reason is that, ignoring viscous effects, a vortex filament cannot end in a fluid. The vortex must close back on itself in a loop, or, like the half vortex ring, the ends of the vortex must lie on the fluid boundary. It is possible to break vortex lines like those in smoke rings, but the lines will reattach, creating new vortex rings–just as they do in these vortex knots.

The only thing that matters is that you find a way of soothing yourself. Because you’ve done the other work. You’ve done the sifting and the sorting. You’ve done the asking, it’s in the Vortex, and it’s all lined up. Now your work is simpler than you’ve been letting it be. Your work is to soothe yourself into a receptive mode.
