Creating Your Own Personal Vortex

by Christopher & Veronica Strong

We were delighted to see the article by Jim Lyons entitled Dowsing – The Russian Influence in the Earth Energy Matters “Newsletter of March 2004”, in which he is asking for our observation on spinning objects and to dowse the surrounding rings etc., to work with vortical energies.

We decided to check on an exercise we do every morning, which is to spin clockwise in a wide-open space, 21 times. This is an old ancient Tibetan exercise and is similar to the whirling dervishes. However, the most beneficial number is 21 turns and it stimulates the vortexes of the chakras into action. It also prevents us being knocked off course, when dealing with a lot of unusual energies.

We measured each others aura before the exercise and after, and found that the auric field always doubled. In effect, we were creating a positive vortex around our auric field, which travelled with us most of the day.

We had dowsed that 21 spins were ideal where the field doubled. Indeed anything less than 19 and more than 24 spins was not as beneficial as the auric field decreases.

We measured the aura and the spins for a week, however Jim encouraged us to give him some more data and this is what we found. We had actually dowsed the number and this confirmed what the Tibetans found. We found the following measuring Veronika’s aura:

  • Thursday 15th April 2004 6.45am: aura 4 metres. After spinning at 7am: increased to 8 metres. Veronika had a lot of negative clients that morning. At 12pm: aura decreased to 6 metres. At 6pm: still 6 metres. At 8pm: still 6 metres in spite of an awful Chinese takeaway at negative friends!
  • Friday 16th April 2004 7.30am: aura 6 metres. After spinning at 8am: 12 metres. At 1pm: still 12 metres. Stayed constant throughout the day.
  • Saturday 17th April 2004 6.15am: aura decreased to 5 metres after a disturbed night. After spinning at 7.15am: 12 metres. Stayed at 12 metres in spite of running workshop in London, and returning late, the energy field stayed out. Measured approximately 8pm.
  • Sunday 18th April 2004 10am: aura 6.5 metres. After spinning: 13 metres.
    So, the results show the aura doubled every time and stayed.

We did try an experiment of spinning additionally and found that if Veronika spun an additional 4 or 5 times, her aura started to contract again. It is the same with breaking the spins and starting off again. The spins have to be continuous.

The speed of the spin does not appear critical, however if you do a fast spin, it seems to ‘hold’ longer. Rather like a gyroscopic effect.

This may explain why we have a lot of energy despite working full time in unusual energies in strange places and that we are able to remain calm, centred, earthed and healthy.

Editor’s note:

Reading this piece of research, I couldn’t help wondering if Veronika’s spinning and its auric effects were indeed a precursor to the experiences of the highly-skilled whirling dervishes of the Mevlevi Order, founded by Mevlana Rumi in the 13th century. According to the late Dr Celaleddin Bakir Celebi, the 21st generation descendant of Mevlana Rumi:

“…contemporary science definitely confirms that the fundamental condition of our existence is to revolve. There is no object, no being which does not revolve and the shared similarity among beings is the revolution of the electrons, protons and neutrons….from the smallest cell to the planets and the farthest stars…everything takes part in in this revolving”.

The word dervish literally means “doorway” – an entrance from the material world to the spiritual. In this sacred and multi-faceted ritual, the Divine is thought to enter by the right palm extended to the sky, move through the body and leave via the lower, turned-down left palm into the Earth as the dervish spins anti-clockwise. The aim is not to hold on to the power but to be an instrument of God and to reach a state of complete submission and communion with God.
