Living Spirituality in Daily Life:
A new paradigm is emerging as the old fear based reality breaks down. If we can begin to live this new sense of beingness more and more, then increasingly this New Paradigm becomes our reality.

These articles and points of view, are all about activating seeds of awareness that may encourage you to live more accordingly to your higher self, and to shine that forth in the world around you for more successful, joyful, harmonious and fulfilled living ...

Unprecedented Global Marine Die-Off - The 5D Shift is Accelerating

Something truly shocking is happening around the world, right under our very noses. It's the unprecedented global marine creature die-off. Although occasionally reported in the mainstream media, it's accelerating at a phenomenal rate. Here below I've listed 33 reports of mass die-offs in just the last month alone. In compiling the list, I found it literally heart rending. But I also know that only the truth can truly set people free. And so I think it's vital to share. Life is constantly changing and moving on. It's important to all consciously evolving people to have an accurate sense of how the shift into the 5D is actually affecting the world. It means your consciousness softens to the impact and readies you to let go even deeper. It is for that reason that I share...

Living with Kundalini - Bringing You Alive Again

Kundalini is the entirely natural phenomenon of life force - flowing 'down' from the source, into sentient life, animating it, and then connecting back to the source once more. It's like a circuit of electricity, and when you're fully plugged into it, then it brings you fully alive. In society most have been disconnected from it, for a vast variety of reasons, from the processed foods that cause disharmonious internal vibrations, to electrosmog and distorted behaviourisms that cut across the natural flow. It leads to a lesser life-style, where you're constantly searching for something, but have forgotten exactly what it is you were originally looking for. Well, it's time to come alive again!...

"Sunshine in a Bowl" - Mango Chia Breakfast Pudding Recipe


Being a retreat chef on the Openhand courses is a real joy! Not only do I get to make the most delicious soul-inspired food and serve it to the most beautiful souls on retreat, it gives me the enormous privilege of filling my shopping trolley with bountiful loads of delicious, organic goodness! It's like a delightful treasure hunt as the menu unfolds from one basket of fruit and veggies to the next. I never quite know what is going to be available at any given time.

The menu is often planned (or not planned!) in the moment as I ask, what am I being invited to create right now...?

Cleansing the Sacred Face of Gaia

A week of firestorms in Alberta has seen the Tarsands Industry brought to its knees. 88,000 residents of Fort McMurray, in the hub of the Canadian oil sands industry, were forced to flee their homes as raging fire swept away all in its path. I've long said that as the shift of consciousness gathers steam, it will unravel the injustice of the old world system with ever increasing mirrors of synchronicity. The Tarsands Industry is a blight on the face of the Earth - a poisonous, destructive, disregard for the natural sanctity of nature. Well now nature is responding for all who care to see. Will humanity witness the deeper meaning? Some definitely will, and therefore gain greatly from it. All realities come and go. If we can embrace the truth, the truth will truly set us free...

The Value of Breathing Consciously


Every minute of every day we breathe, what a joy to feel our breath, to feel our aliveness and vitality. It is the manna or life source that enables us to exist and is essential for our survival. Conscious breathing is said to be one of the best antidotes to stress, anxiety and depression. For many years I have given much consideration to the food and drink that I consume, yet paid little attention to my breath. We can survive for days without food and even water, though only minutes without oxygen. Our breath is vital to our physical existence, the oxygen we inhale helps to build our very cells. It is a process that continually happens often without our conscious awareness.

Why Spiritual Life is all about The Process!


In my frequent travels around the world, I'm blessed to meet with lots of evolving people, all from different walks of life, but all with commonality about this great shift into the New Paradigm we're experiencing. You're yearning for a new sense of equity and justice for all - a vibration where all sentient life is respected and supported. And another phenomenon that's uniting people is how tough the path is being right now. There's lots of density and resistance people are experiencing, lots of earth-shattering challenges. It's like you're being tested to the limit. My heart goes out to you. What's it all about?

Celebrating Inky the Octopuses "Great Escape"


It's great for people to be able to see the world's dwindling wildlife up close. But when it comes to imprisoning sentient creatures in zoos and acquariums, is it really worth the cost to consciousness? How much do creatures suffer when deprived of their natural freedom? How would we like to be imprisoned? Well here's a creature that voted with his tentacles. Inky the Octopus made a daring escape from his acquarium when the lid to his tank was left slightly ajar. He made light of 'foot', skidaddled down a drainage pipe, and back into the expansive freedom of the ocean - right where he belongs. Yihah!

The Vital Importance of Taking Time Out


I've just taken an unexpected break away from my busy (but enjoyable) Openhand life. It was well worth it. Just taking time away from the landscape you've thus far created is absolutely invaluable - priceless. It means of course that you can 'take stock' of what's going on in your life, what changes might need to happen.

You don't even have to focus too hard, just letting go of any routines means that your bodymind can soften, relax and the soul then gather in strength - upon which, it will shine through into your life with greater clarity...

Hemp well and truly deserves a place right up at the top of any discerning health-seekers daily food list.

Brussels UnBroken

So yet another terrorist attack has left its shadowy veil in the heart of Europe, as at least 30 people are killed in the Belgian Capital Brussels. Here at Openhand our hearts and meditations go out to all the people who have suffered. We are with you in spirit, our brothers and sisters. How do you make sense of such atrocity? To me, the only way is to find the truth; to forgive, and allow it to inspire evolutionary change. It's realising the redundancy of a system that pits people again people in a very dog-eat-dog world; instead, going within, feeling the pain of suffering, locating the tightness within ourselves, expanding out through it, then radiating this into the wider world. As simple as it sounds, such expansion of consciousness is the only thing that can ever make a real difference...
