Spiritual questions

Questions and answers to typical spiritual questions like how to quieten the mind and emotions during meditation, psychic attack, entities, chakras...

Question about daily white light or shield protection.

Hello, I've been drawn to your work since I encountered your lovely "Five Gateways" video. Thank you for all of your wonderful offerings.

Blind guide question


I have a question. There's a saying about something like "the blind man is leading the blind..."...

My shot:

There are many blind guides, but those who follow them do that because they want to stay blind, because they choose to. There are many, who stay blind even with the seeing guide, while those who want to see, will find assistance even with the blind one. And

Finding Redemption

Hi everyone,

I am a new user and recently watched the Openhand 5 gateways documentary.

I have been exploring spirituality for some time now, in my teens (somewhat misguidedly), in my early twenties and now in my thirties. Recently I have felt the pull, the shift that drew me toward the first gateway but I do not seem to be able to pass through due to anxiety about my past.

Working with sexual energy

I have been married for a number of years. While the journey of our married life has not been without challenges, our relationship remains strong.

However, I am currently experiencing a very strong attraction for another woman. In normal circumstances, maybe I could just walk away from this - but the problem is that it is in a work environment, we may be working together closely for a few more months, and walking away is not straight forward.

Is there anything I can do with this strong sexual energy? e.g. to transform it into something else?

Flowing through waking, dreaming and deep sleeps stages

Three stages repeats day after day and overall no progress seems to be happened from a long time.

the deeper meaning of an eye problem

I have an eye condition, it's medically termed 'Intermittent strabismus'. Basically when I look at things, sometimes two of my eyes don't look in the same direction (my right eye, the more short sighted weaker eye will turn right to look in a different direction). It's intermittent so it doesn't happen all the time, when it does happen I can consciously adjust my eye so they focus again. But often I'm not really aware how my eyes look, I can give people the impression that I'm not really looking at them when I talk to them.

What is the anatomy of the soul?

My son asked me a really interesting question, which was so telepathic and attuned to what I could sense around me... He asked me " If my friend was on the other side i.e in heaven, how could he also (simultaneously) be here on earth in a different body with a new life''?

This is a question that I have thought and thought about for so long. Why is it that I would feel my friends reincarnation on earth in a new body, yet simulatnoeously still have communications with him and feel him now and again, not like I did.

Small Talk & Being a Human

I would like to hear people’s thoughts on these two (related?) things…

Small Talk
I’ve encountered a number of people on their spiritual path, and practising meditations etc. who disconnect with the world around them and from other people too.

I have noticed two different manifestations of this -
One is a kind of bewilderment by the world around. Every small thing disturbs them. They become rather intolerant. A symptom maybe of hyper-sensitivity.

anyone interested in a Five Gateways Workshop in South East Australia?

Hi All

I am considering going over to Glastonbury for the summer retreat on 29 July 2011.

However, I'm aware there are a few people from Australia following the Openhand Foundation website.

So I thought I'd ask around to see if there might be anyone interested in attending a Five Gateways workshop if it were available in Australia, possibly North New South Wales Hinterland area?

Openhand Forum Books

Chris and Trinity,

Some of the exchanges and most of your answers on this forum have such depth that I am sure they are helpful to a lot of people.

I just remembered one of may favourite spiritual books wich wasn't more than a structured compilation of question & answer sessions with a certain teacher plus his letters to students. Actually I know several such books wich are real treasures of wisdom, as this form is very near to the questions the reader might hold in his own heart.
