    Gateway 1:"Awakening": you directly sense the interconnectedness of all life and know that what effects one effects all. The intensity of experience through the five senses will have made a dramatic leap, as though the 'volume' was suddenly increased. You're connecting with the magic of the soul and beginning to experience life through it. You start to feel an at-one-ment with all life - a compassion and love for other sentient beings.

    Gateway 2:"Realignment": as you increasingly tune into the interconnectedness and joy of life, your soul begins to infuse within you, until a profound change happens: the soul takes over from the ego and assumes supreme leadership in your life. There's a sense of always yearning to come from the higher choices, the higher truth, in every moment, in every thing that you do.

    Gateway 3:"Transfiguration": the path of the soul leads you on a journey of inner purification, which can last many years. Progressively it takes you to a dramatic shift in perception from identification with the personality to being the Seer expressed as the soul. This is preceded by a full kundalini activation, where lower and higher self are united as one - it's experienced as a powerful and liberational energy rising up the spine into the pineal gland (the Third Eye). You now live life as 'the One', the Seer of all things.

    Gateway 4:"Enlightenment": this is the passage through your past life karma, where aspects of the soul have identified with traumatic circumstances in previous incarnations - how you passed on for example. As your soul unfolds into the causal body, you activate your karma in waves. It impacts your daily life and relationships - you live elements of your past lives through the current moment. You're being invited to reintegrate those lost fragments of soul, bathe in your karma and release it. It ultimately leads to your Enlightenment: being the Seer, expressing freely as the soul through life without attachment.

    Gateway 5:"Resurrection" - we don't just have one bodily vehicle of expression, but seven, each of which is connected through a main chakra. As the full energy of the soul is unleashed and flowing freely through you, your seven bodily vehicles of expression are finally cleansed, reactivated and re-energised. You unfold into multi-dimensional living. You are now 'ascended', living in the Higher Paradigm, here and now.

I remember being 16 years old and having the experience of Unconditional Love flowing through me like a waterfall. I have always felt the interconnectedness of all things, it just is. Realignment for me has been a struggle over the last 29 years of getting lost in the drama of the 3d and falling off the wagon and getting back on repeatedly. There is so much BS Dogma out there to fool you into thinking you are less than what you are and waste your time chasing rainbows. I am so happy that I found this group about a year ago. I have a large apprehension right now as the pieces click into place to go to Brussels this summer. Change is uncertain and a little scary. Sitting here typing this my mind is running a mile a minute thinking about the paths i have seen so many others take. Those further along than me are mostly single and i am so lucky to have finally found a partner that is so amazing i can't find the words to describe our relationship. Ultimately we are all alone always but it still scares me in a way. The unknown but it is also infinite possibility in the yet unlived moments so the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Part of me wants to run into the wilderness and dig myself a hobbit hole and shut out the rest of the world but i am too social for that. So here i am in the Don'T USA. I have seldom been more ashamed of being part of this country than now. WTF the shadow side is sure in the light and it gets crazier by the day!!! but i digress there you have it raw and uncut.....Please share your thoughts on my ramblings Namaste Brothers and Sisters Eddie

Yeah, i can feel you Eddie. I am too feeling some apprehension and at the same time a lot of excitement as it gets closer to Bruges trip. Being the only financial supporter in the family adds some spice to it but i am learning to trust the universe will provide with necessary resources as my journey unfolds. My spiritual journey got a boost at the time of my personal relationship challenges which felt at times like going through burning gates. I am very grateful that at the same time i was reading Openhand books which helped me with the process confronting and dealing with the challenges. Strangely, but being in the middle of the storm i also felt more alive and connected to my soul as if i could feel the sweetness of it. Now, I am not looking for a storm but ready for it (or at least that's what i think and feel). With Love, Anatoly.

Hmmm..well this is interesting. Lately, I have been consciously connecting to the Openhand energy and energetically infusing the space before I go to bed. I had a powerful dream last night that I was at an Openhand gathering and sitting at the "top" of a spiral with you Open - you went down to the cirlce and I went down as well. When I arrived I felt this powerful wave of souls arriving into the circle. There was interference happening from just outside the circle. Open and anyone who could feel it were holding a vibration and it was removing the interference. At first I stayed outside the circle and then joined and held the vibration. The people inside the circle were crying and releasing all of this struggle. At one point there was an asian man in the center of the circle just looking at me with tears in his eyes. I woke up at that point and my body is still in the vibration that was there in the dream. I felt to share it because I can feel the sense of family gathering around me more now - and the Openhand energy right here.

As for gateways, I would say I have been sitting in the corridor to Gateway 2...I am aware of places that I am invited yet not yet felt able to proceed - maybe that's resistance, maybe it's right - maybe it's a little of both. I feel strongly to just keep being me - and I keep watching the outer circumstances shaping and reshaping...I can't see where it's all going, but it's clear it's evolving and that by staying in what feels real and true for me, unravelling is happening.

Heyas all!
Open, I'm pretty sure Ive been in, lived in, experienced all that which is written there in the 5 gateway's about a million times over the course of my life. Which is a bit odd, its like knowing/seeing it all unfold and then jumping back out of the in between per say and pointing a finger at it all whilst saying OH WTF is that. What is happening here. Thats pretty much the moment Ive jumped off the ledge and entered back into focus/processing/must understand completely the entirety of this that I have experienced.

Treebrother, I would like to comment a bit on your comment about the Don't USA and shadow side. It's been said a gazillion times before, spoken and thought all in same, yet different ways.. But without a don't, there is no do. Without a shadow, there is no light. Without shame, there is no acceptance and so on and so forth you know.

Could just be me. I kinda live/love/cannot be anything but it all you know. I am the shadow side and I am the light side. I am the in between more or less too. I keep trying to comprehend fully both and everything in between, but then I see a squirrel outside my window and go Squirrel!!!! I love squirrels :) Then I realize I've just freed myself from the intense contemplation of it all and just decided to let it all just be as it will be. 3d, 5d, 20d.. Some day's its just all the same to me. It's like running through a sprinkler as a child. Left, middle, right. In one side, Oh look its the middle - how precious! Ooh now I'm on the other side lol
Is that not the dance of life?! Are we not supposed to enjoy everything while being in this state called life, or should it be limited?!

Ive tried many many times before to talk to other people about these sorts of things and most just say Michelle, you just need to dumb it down a bit more because you just flew back up in the air and I'm trying to get you, but I just cant. Because most if not all, are to me, picking sides. I do not understand this, it is illogical for me pick a side. Because what one perceives as shadow is just another form of light in the spectroscope.

Oh anyways, I finally purchased all the books. I am muddling through Breakthrough. I say muddling because I keep stopping, inhaling sharply and thinking OMG! Maybe that is what was and is screaming my name out. But then I don't understand this screaming of my name, I mean I know I'm half deaf and all but I'm not that deaf!!! This makes no sense to me, back to the drawing board I guess :)

Want for others what they want for themselves, in all things and in all way's
Wyndè

I don't know if this makes sense but my experience through the gateways does not seem to be linear. I flowed in and out of Gateway 1 for many years. I now have an amplified sense of at oneness with all life and feel much sadness when I witness others having a complete disregard. Although at times my sense of oneness can get a little murky so I hesitate to claim that I am all the way through gateway 1.

Gateway 2 has been difficult for me probably because I spent so much of my life unconsciously out of alignment. To realign many things first have to unravel and that has been overwhelming. And as I go through the process I face challenges from family and friends who question what the heck is going on with me and I have no answer because they wouldn't even begin to understand. Old friends drift away so that kind of takes care of itself but family is more difficult. The unraveling also brings up fears because even though things were out of alignment they were comfortable and a roadmap of sorts. The more I unravel the more out of my comfort zone I go with only the longing of my soul to be in flow pushing me forward.

So I recognize I am still working with gateway 2 yet I have been going through physical, emotional and spiritual inner purification for years. It has been an unfolding and been progressing in a way that keeps drawing me in deeper. Also at times I have the sense I have activated and am working through some past life karma.

So without overthinking this, it feels like I am "multi-tasking" and working through multiple gateways at the same time not because I am trying to overachieve or rush the process but just because that's how things appear to be showing up for me.

I have not yet gone through the first gateway - I don't 'feel' it or see it but I know its there. I think you said once Open, dont open it, just step through, but I don't know where to step. I understand the words, they make complete sense, but the soul is stuck. <3 Namaste

I want to change my above answer! To a complete affirmation of I have zero idea of which one I am at.

I walked away from my earlier answer and just threw my hands up in the air and thought well....who's to say and who's to know really. Then that internal dialogue happens and Ive felt all day going hmmmm!! Those moments in time in my life that used to be full of complete sorrow when looked at by me had dissipated, had been what I thought to be processed completely.. Then all of a sudden I'm looking at them again, picking them up inside me and seeing the story all over again. Like I'm telling myself my story all over again and a part of me is thinking, been there, done that do I really need to integrate into again?! I relived parts of my life in a few hour's time and just feel very very tired now.

So I have no idea, all I know for absolute certainty is that I did not have to come here, that I chose it. To help people. Yet somewhere in that I forgot to help myself too, which is what I'm working on.

Wyndè

Thanks for the great responses everyone - thanks for tuning in *OK*

Please allow me to share some deeper thoughts on relating to the 5GATEWAYS in this Great Shift, raised by your contemplations...

Vulnerability and being in Relationship

Eddie, I'm with you, I can feel your vulnerability in all of this, and it will carry you a long way. And with regards to "single people moving faster", well, remember the story of the rabbit and the tortoise? In the Journey of Ascension, for me, it's more about being sure to fully complete each stage. Being in relationship challenges in deeply profound ways - if you're being honest with yourself (as I know you are), then it brings up all the stuff we have to work with.

Finding the eye of the Storm

Can you feel the storm brewing out there everyone? Just look for example at the day-by-day craziness unfolding in the US. But as you point out Anatoly...

    "Being in the middle of the storm i also felt more alive and connected to my soul as if i could feel the sweetness of it.

Exactly! When we don't resist the truth of what's coming up, then you don't distance yourself from it. This may sound like a contradiction - how does that help? When you intentionally distance yourself from something confronting you, then you create polarity - identity - in relation to it. It actually makes the circumstance even more real. However, if you go right into the heart of the situation, then you become as-One with it - The One in it. You find the eye of the storm and burst the myth of the illusion that the situation always was. Because how ever challenging, it's a choice as to whether you let circumstances define you.

An Ascending Family

Jen, your vision of an ascending family is incredibly powerful - thanks so much for sharing, it touches my heart. So often in this Great Shift, people on the path say they feel alone. It's not surprising - it would seem that because comparatively there's so few of us, we've chosen to incarnate spread all over the world. In a physical and intellectual sense, we can feel very separate. But through the ether we are not. And now is the time to focus on that connecting energy more and more. It's not something you have to follow though. It's our own soul that we must follow. But at the same time, consider there's this vast vortex of energy building, that you can tune into, that helps you feel the ascending direction of the shift - a bridge that helps you tune into your higher dimensional self; and also one that helps bring ascending people together toward this common destiny. It's simply breath-taking - awesome!

The Gateways are not Simply Linear - but interrelated

Hi Wyndè and Ann - thanks for sharing - somethings you both said caused me to feel to reiterate something very important about the Gateways that I talked about in the book - they are not simply linear.

What is a Gateway?

It is the transition through a particular density of being. For example, your soul may be causing you to challenge the sense of separation around the physical density. So you are engaged strongly in very physical things - challenging existential questions for example. Your soul might, for instance, manifest a purposeful lack of resources in your life so that you could constantly remind yourself you are not physical. You could be working on passing through Gateway 2 (the plane of the emotions): so you manifest the temptation of giving up your power in relationships, so as to work on regaining it. You might be working in Gateway 3 - on the plane of the intellect, where you might be challenging inner child conditioning.

AND MOST LIKELY.... you will be working on several of the Gateways together. Because of course, you are a multidimensional being. So your soul interrelates through several of the Gateways and may well be working on them together.

HOWEVER.... the likelihood is, that at any given time, one of the Gateways will stand out most strongly. That's because the particular pattern of experiences you're manifesting at the time, will have a particular density of vibration. And so your centre of consciousness is pulled more to that vibration.

ADDITIONALLY... although you might be working on several Gateways together, the ceremonies themselves, which mark the completion of a Gateway, are linear. You can't, for example, completely pass through the plane of karma in Gateway 4, before you've become fully transfigured in Gateway 3. Likewise, you won't realign with your true soul's purpose in Gateway 2, until you've fully expanded out of the isolation and separation caused by identification with the physical plane in Gateway 1.

The incredible power of Gateway 2

I'd like to be really clear about Gateway 2 and what that's all about. Often people will get partial tasters of the higher Gateways and when presented with the routemap, may feel they're already through some of the higher ones. When Gateway 2 completes, it comes with the most powerful surrendering to the soul's path. It's like a breaking down, giving up trying to shape and control the physical life. It's like you could literally give everything up, so long as you're now coming from the soul. It's because you realise nothing is really in truth in your life, if you're not coming from that place. So the only place to really begin, is to locate and come from, the soul's impulse in every moment. Even if you're in density and can't fully feel it, even if you make 'mistakes', nevertheless there's that practically complete commitment to looking for the soul's impulse.

How to move forwards when you feel stuck?

Heather I feel you. How do you move forwards when you feel stuck? What do you actually look for? If you feel stuck in your current situation, then I would suggest just observing what's going on and your responses to it. What do you feel internally in relation to what's happening in your life? Work to be as much in the moment as possible - so you're witnessing yourself as stuff is happening. That way, you will start to disassociate from the experience itself. And by that, I don't mean distancing from the experience. I mean you start to realise you are not the experience itself; that there is something else within, that is not defined by the experience. This in itself begins to unleash soul. It leads to the awakening and arising of soul out of the separation. So keep working with exactly what is presenting in the moment and you'll come through just fine.

No worries folks, I can feel you; you're doing just great!
Keep observing, keep feeling, keep working with what shows up.

Sending you all much love and support

Open *give_rose*

Thank you Open, thank you so much. And just seeing those words from Js touched me. “Yes. I feel the same.”

One thing that struck me is how I think I have misinterpreted 5 Gateways – I didn’t realise one could be working through more than one Gateway at a time, so I have been trying I guess to ‘tick all the boxes’ that would indicate to me I have gone through Gateway 1. I am not connecting with the magic of the soul because I can’t feel it or see it, so can’t get through the Gateway. I asked once on a workshop in Glastonbury, because I couldn’t see or feel my soul, did it mean I didn’t have one and your words gave me hope. Of course I have a soul. But two years down the road and I am still stuck.

So although I feel stuck myself, why do I find it so delightfully easy to support others becoming ‘unstuck’ if you like? I facilitated some motivation type training with colleagues and felt the pull to cover ‘being the best version of you’. I may not be able to feel my soul or see where it is, but oh my goodness – I can feel it in others. Literally feeling their confidence grow, seeing the almost imperceptible straightening of shoulders, the chin going up, eyes once locked to the floor, surprising themselves with their sudden ability to look into another’s eyes, feeling the toes dip gingerly into the water as they take a sneaky peek at who they are, feeling their joy when they realise that what they see is pretty freakin awesome! Now I feel all that and feel the humble joy of being able to gently support that amazing transformation. It makes my heart sing. So why can I see and feel another’s soul and be able to watch them realise just how worthy they are, but not my own? It doesn’t make sense at all.
I’m diving in to that ‘not making sense’ and trying to become one with it. It’s good to know you are all ‘out there’. It really is. Thank you. xxx

Thank you Wynde for the encouragement!
Open your words hold a deeper meaning than they appear to. NAMASTE AND THANK YOU!!
Heather, you can only see the light in others because it already shines in you. Its really that simple. So why worry about the details just be you whatever that is right now. Then keep refining and unfolding that as you go. When i stopped trying to see the magic in life, I began to BE IT!!! Namaste dear sister, Eddie

You Treebrother are always always welcome!!!

Heather, go to a mirror and look yourself in the eyes and just say Hello Beautiful. There you are. Clap your hands joyously, lift your arms above your head and dance around. Sing your song. There you are. You have been you all along. The body is just hmmmmm, the vessel to carry you forward. You want to feel you? Rub your hands together really really really fast then clap your hands once and just hold them inches apart. There you are. Does it make sense now? I pray that it does for you, because Sister.. YOU are a beautiful soul! My love and my heart goes out to you and your lovely journey in this life.

Open Thank you for the clarification, I get more things today that I did yesterday. I know what was screaming my name and a lot of things are making perfect sense to me now. The US and the world in its entirety is definitely on the brink of something good. Change isn't often easy, but it is what it is, its change and yup...It happens and humanity deserves the absolute best and its high time for that! This is our planet, we were born of this earth, this earth does not belong to an individual but to each and every soul born upon it. Without borders, without constraint. Regardless of opposition this is where it will go.

Much Love to you all
Wyndè

Hi Dear Heather - if you can see and inspire soul in another, then you are ALREADY inspiring soul in yourself!

Perhaps we need to expand the understanding of what soul is and truly feels like.

There are many qualities of the soul that animate your being. There are obvious ones like love, joy and compassion. And there's also experiences of deep inner peace, self acceptance, expansiveness; and also will, commitment, bravery and courage. There's also diplomacy, selfless service, and pure divine magic which just seems to happen around you without even doing anything.


    The the soul is intangible, not physical, you can't see it or touch it.
    To me, it is best considered like the wind through the trees,
    it is known by the trace it leaves.

And so how do you best know your own soul?

It's essentially a sense of rightness in the things that you do - like when you help others for example and derive joy from that - you're doing something selfless, beyond the small self "I". And that could be something as simple as putting up a kind, supportive comment on this thread. It's when you drop deep into yourself and you're right in the sense of aligned vibe - "aha, yes, this is me." Like coming home and sinking into a hot aromatic bath.

The soul is simply a sense of rightness in how you're being. An ease with that.

Blessings

Open *OK*

Thanks y'all for the insightful and inspiring discussion! And thank you, Open, for raising the topic.

I've been feeling into where I'm at in the Gateways since I first read this post. I felt it as an invite to go deep into what conditioned patterns are holding me back (always a feast for the Grays). I looked back to when I first joined the Openhand community in 2013 and feel pretty darn good about how far I've come since then in expanding my consciousness. Back then, my soul longed to express and free itself. But I was too fearful to express my feelings honestly, in general. I would suppress, suppress, and suppress some more. Then the lid would blow off, and I would over-express, pissing myself and others off, blaming myself, feeling ashamed and guilty. I still have my moments, but I'm far better at expressing how I honesty feel now without dishing out the 'loaded' words. That's not to say I always get it right about how I dish it out. But better, yes, indeed.

Thanks to participating in Openhand workshops, I came to realize that I had denied the vulnerability of my soul and had attached to a false, love/light spiritual identity, and had sunk massively into an 'anything goes' mode, allowing others to trample over me with disrespect and a lack of kindness and compassion. I burst that love/light bubble a while back! Now I call it for the most part when whatever is happening feels deeply misaligned, disrespectful, and unacceptable to me. I am getting better at 'calling' it respectfully but firmly from a calm, centered space.

I have honoured my soul's longing at various points in my life to express aligned, right action due to the powerful uprising of warrior will I felt from deep within, but I didn't always do that with calm resolve. Sometimes I got the balance between Ray 1/will and Ray 2/Surrender just right. The Peaceful Warrior. Sometimes not. At times, I quelled the uprising of warrior will out of fear and did not act on what felt right and aligned in the deepest depths of my being. Now I act on those feelings much more often and then move into right, aligned action. What a sense of joy and fulfillment that brings! That's not to say it's always an easy path! That's an understatement! But I increasingly have experiences when I spontaneously go for it. Instead of getting stuck in a mind maze of intellectual over-analysis and dissection, dampening the embers of my soul in fearful 'what if's'. It's a powerful sense of fiery commitment, resolve, and rightness that proclaims ultimately, "I'd rather be dead than not act on what feels right. This is who I am. This is what feels right here and now. This is where I stand and hold."

So when all is said and done, I feel I'm in Gateway 2/Realignment, aligning most of the time with the fiery will of my soul, supported by synchronicity, flowing with the divine, taking that first step down a path of light that beckons, "Come hither! We are with you."

In feeling into the invite that Open put out there (Where are you in the Gateways?), I have been contemplating the conditioned habit patterns that hold me back at times from aligning with my soul's authentic pull. When I first got into the Openhand way, I tried to 'control' aligning with what I discerned as right, denying deep-set patterns of behaviour that I have been immersed in throughout my life. That kind of 'forced' alignment most certainly did not feel effortless and harmonious. It felt like torture, in fact. So I've learned to honour my conditioning (I am not to blame but I am responsible for letting it go), finding patience and acceptance while observing myself caught up in all those ruts, those neural pathways, aware of OC's tentacles in the background. Continually refining the balance between Ray 1 warrior will and Ray 2 surrender and acceptance.

All in all, I feel I'm getting close to letting go of what no longer serves my evolutionary journey and realigning most of the time with my soul's will and the flow of divine benevolence. And when I do, I'll be heading down the corridor to Gateway 3/Transfiguration. I have some fears around that as in, "Lord Shiva, please don't let my kundalini awakening be too disruptive!" :)

x Cathy

Hi Cathy - a brilliant sharing and so open and honest. Honesty is always the leading step for strong evolutionary growth. Consequently I too have witnessed the massive changes in your process during the time I've known you - awesome *OK*

What you've described reveals so well why the Gateways model can be so powerful. We get to really see where we are in it. You know then what you've got to work with.

I commend how you're approaching it Cathy - it bodes well for the journey.

Much love

Open *give_rose*

Treebrother, Wynde, Open - thank you so, so much. So this is the interconnectedness of all things?

So when I literally feel and see anothers soul (which I can do very easily)I am also looking at my soul? When I see anothers soul expand, grow and shine its beautiful light, I am watching my soul shine its beautiful light? And all this time I doubted that I had a soul. I rubbed my hands together Wynde and could really feel the energy tingling. So the trace I leave - when my words of compassion and encouragement bring tears of joy and I feel my heart sing, yes, it is like sinking into a deep aromatic bath - that's my soul.

So stop trying to look and search and just be it, because its all there. The interconnectedness, the raised awareness, its all there. Thank you so, so much for seeing something in me that I couldn't see. Now I think I understand what you meant Open when you said don't open the door, just step through. Don't struggle, just be. Namaste - sending so much love and gratitude. xxx

Ever since I took 10 days silent retreat Vipassana in India I have felt the shift.
"Everybody" told me that I HAD to go to India. After Vippassana I thought that was the reason.
I had allready dicovered Cabo Verde before I went to India and felt a triangel in me, Norway, India Cabo Verde. Lately, living in Cabo Verde I have discovered that the Indian hippie woman I have "seen" and felt, is actually me living before in Cabo Verde. I feel I am supposed to fullfill what she started.
After my sense of oneness, I have become much more sensitive in general and to vibration. All my life I have been singing and making music so I understand frequences. I feel what my body want, and I workout and eat with that purpose, not to "feel something" like the previus me. I observe my thoughts. I've startet feeling Bluetooth, emotions/feelings like breezes of wind and people''s vibe. I have just good interactions with everybody I meet, but I need my solitude where I can write and be creative, in nature.

It has become abundantly clear to me that I have only had a small pre awakening. So I here I am at the beginning again or maybe for the first time for real. Spiritual Experiences themselves are only Transient. The shift of consciousness is irrevocable? Is this how it is? How we are Being is what determines how we Create? Then by looking at what we are creating we can see a reflection of our current true nature? So far I have learned best by watching others and comparing to my own experiences. This serves me less now than it has. Here i am getting a little more Naked. Strangely enough it feels ok in this group. You are all beautiful Namaste Eddie

That is so synchonistic Eddie. The words from T.S.Elliott popped out of a page to me earlier. Something I really resonate with. I read your post and felt a dancing through the ether...

    "We shall not cease from exploration and the end of our exploring will be to arrive where we started... and know the place for the first time"

I have had one constant feeling on my journey. It is that the more I 'see', the less I understand. With each falling veil I feel more and more naked; more and more a beginner. To me it is about what is left when it all falls away.

Perhaps you are ready to compare your experiences to the incredible light of your own soul.

With love
Trinity

Hi Eddie and all,

I can see the value in sharing experiences and hearing of experiences that you resonate with (and those you don't resonate with sometimes can be gems too). They can point us in particular directions or assist us in understanding our own truth. Yet I also recognise the value in letting go of comparison, something I continue to work on... Comparison implies that one is better or less than the other. Theodore Rossevelt once said that "Comparison is the thief of joy", seems about right to me!

We are all equal, just different, wherever we are on the path :)

Thought and felt i would share some of my journey. I have been interested in the spiritual development for quite some time and longing for shifts. But when it came, it hit me like a freight train and challenged me to the core. Imagine leaving a "normal" life with family, kids and other attributes (what they call an American dream), and then it happened. Metaphorically speaking, it was like driving a nice car in the countryside all happy and then all of a sudden i hit the invisible wall and all my shit started flying that wasn't holding well and what remains is the core of me. It was like being in the shit storm. My wife had a strong need to explore her sexuality with another man with a mix of compassion and ego (Wow, did i really say that). And i agreed to it at least at the soul level.

This is difficult to write about ... but will keep going. There was some denial that it was happening and attempts to run away from it. But I knew i had to face it and work through it as it was my stuff. For some reason, i wanted to know all the details even though it really hurt. It looked like i was being sadistic to myself but now i know i was using the situation to go to all the places where i felt resistances and denial. Yes, it got really hot. I felt like i wanted to hold on to "hot coals" until they cool down at the point where i didn't need the situation to go away. And it did cool down and transformed me and our relationship. I am now more authentic and our relationship/partnership is more authentic. I know there will be challenges ahead but i am ready to deal with them when they come.

The whole experience was a breakthrough and i felt some shifts in consciousness in the process. I know i had to work through some attachments in physical and emotional planes. I am not where i am on the journey but i am excited about the coming transfiguration course in Bruges.

With Love,
Anatoly
