Seeing a Vortex While Meditating? Here’s What it Means

Seeing a Vortex While Meditating

Seeing a vortex while meditating is one of the most rewarding, but also challenging and confusing things some people see.

I’ve been meditating for 10 or so years at this point. I started exploring what it means to see a vortex earlier this year when I experienced it for the first time.

I’ve discussed it with a number of friends who meditate. Some of which have had similar visions and experienced. As well as doing a deep dive into what research and personal accounts there are into this topic online.

Here’s everything I know and believe seeing a vortex while meditating means for me, for you. As well as how you can improve your meditation sessions and explore this further.

Seeing a Vortex While Meditating and Your Spiritual Eye

For most people, when you see a vortex while meditating what you’re actually doing is activating your spiritual eye. Also called the ‘third eye’ and known as the sixth chakra.

Some of you reading this will be aware of what chakras are and how they affect our wellbeing. Charaka’s are basically points or energy centers within our bodies that help the flow of energy.

There are seven main chakras located down our spines, from the top of heads to the root chakra located in our pelvic floor. It’s the sixth chakra, known as the third-eye chakra that’s located between the eyebrows that are ‘activating’ visions of vortexes for most people.

The third eye chakra governs intuition and provides a bridge between what we physically see, and what we visualize. It’s this connection that most people use to help them see and explore a vortex while meditating.

What Does a Vortex Look Like?

What Does a Vortex Look Like

It’s called a vortex because it looks very similar to a vortex in space. Most people see a tunnel, with different lights and colors around it. The colors will likely be moving and look like a swirling motion.

Personally, I see a deep purple or dark blue color with some white light and golden shiny colors. The tunnel or middle of the vortex is always very clear to me. It’s a still place, with a swirling motion going around the outside.

This is different for everyone, so I’d like to hear your experiences if you’re willing to share them. Just drop me a comment at the end of the article to share your experienced with the audience.

How You Can See a Vortex While Meditating

If you want to practice opening your third eye and seeing a vortex while meditating, there are some steps to follow:

  • Firstly, don’t focus on trying to manifest or visualize a vortex. Any attempt to force it to happen will make it very difficult.
  • The best thing to do is to follow your normal meditation practice, especially if this is what has helped you reach this point before.
  • Don’t be mindful of the chakra point between your eyebrows. Instead, picture something in the distance in the middle of your vision and gently allow yourself to focus on this area.
  • You will feel your consciousness increasing, and over time you will naturally be guided to this place. It may take time, it may take many sessions. It’s different for everyone.
  • Like all meditation practices, it takes time and practice. The more you do this, the more familiar it will feel and the ‘easier’ it will be.

Is This the Same Vortex as Abraham Hicks Talks About?

Anyone who enjoys meditating will probably have heard about Abraham Hicks meditation techniques and entering a ‘vortex’. This is a different thing, although there are some obvious overlaps.

Abraham Hicks talks about a vortex as a continual state of mind, and being in the vortex means you’re in vibrational alignment with your desires and in a feel-good state. It’s not necessarily a place you go to while meditating.

This is actually something I’ve been exploring more recently, and working on. I’m going to write up some of my own thoughts and feelings on this subject in the future. It’s definitely a fascination topic!

Meaning Behind Seeing Colors While Meditating

Maybe you’re not seeing a vortex or what you believe is the vortex, but you’re seeing colors while meditating. This is a positive step towards spiritual awakening and an indication that you’re activating your third eye.

The colors you are seeing while meditating are going to correspond with your chakra system (energy centers in the body). Each chakra is represented by a different color. Your body might be telling you of an ailment or issue with a certain area in your body.

Here is a brief overview of the different chakra points in the body and the colors they are represented by. As well as what it might mean if you’re seeing this color while meditating.

Red / The Root Chakra – This is the chakra point that connects us with mother earth. Some symptoms of imbalance include fear, anxiety, and eating disorders.

Orange / Sacral Chakra – This is the chakra point that is the center of our emotions, feelings, and stimulates pleasure. Some symptoms of imbalance include being overly emotional, mood swings, and feeling down.

Yellow / Solar Plexus Chakra – This is the chakra point that symbolizes energy, intellect, and ego. Some symptoms of imbalance include low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety.

Green / Heart Charka – This is the chakra point associated with love, compassion, and healing. Some symptoms of imbalance include lack of empathy, shyness, and loneliness.

Blue / Throat Chakra – This is the chakra point that is the center of communication and creativity. Some symptoms of imbalance include being unable to speak or express yourself, physical ailments.

Purple / Third Eye Chakra – This is the chakra point that helps with intuition, foresight, and imagination. Some symptoms of imbalance include feeling sick, compromised vision, clarity, and imagination.

Violet / Crown Chakra – This is the chakra that connects us with the universe and a deeper understanding of what’s around us. Some symptoms of imbalance include feeling a lack of direction in life, feeling disconnected spiritually, feeling sick and confused.
