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 ...

The Theory of Everything...AND Nothing!

Have you seen the film "The Theory of Everything" yet, the story of the genius Stephen Hawking? It's an absolutely wonderful film, which to me, speaks on many levels. Not least is it an incredible story of the challenges a soul can thrive through (in the form of motor neurone disease), but it's also a compelling love story, and as well, points towards the marriage between science and spirituality. It's an epic, a must see. Personally, I believe that by integrating science with spirituality, it's possible to have a full, experiential realisation of the nature of the universe. I wonder if it's possible without that? This film, for me, dares to bring one to the edge of that realisation...

Carrot & Ginger Wellness Soup to nurture your soul

There are a myriad of different things in our modern world that act against our health and spiritual evolution. I find that taking care of myself on a physical level, is really important for my spiritual well being too. So, I ensure that every mouthful of food I eat nourishes and supports me. Today I am sharing a deliciously easy recipe - that not only leaves you with a well satiated feeling (perfect for my friends experiencing the chillier winter climates right now), but is also jam-packed full of high quality nutritional goodness. As always, I recommend that you use organic produce to give yourself (and the planet) an extra infusion of goodness.

Before we get to the recipe, here are some of the health benefits of the ingredients in this tasty soup...

Charlie Hebdo: freedom of the soul Yes, but inflammatory judgment No.

Who could not have been touched and saddened by the merciless shootings at the French publication of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo? My heart goes out to all those who suffered. Initially my soul steered me away from the story - just more senseless violence of a decaying old world reality, long past its sell-by-date. But such situations that command popular attention deserve spiritual comment. There are many levels to this situation; no simple answers. I support the forgiveness offered by the Charlie Hebdo team, but then neither do I agree with inciting religious hatred by disrespecting someone else's truth, no matter how dogmatic they may appear. So my truth has evolved through this event...

Exodus: of Gods, Kings and Divine Beings

Metaphor in the Movies
It seems there's a plethora of great movie metaphors emerging at these profound times of great change. As I've written about in Divinicus, my sense is that humanity is tapping into a collective story about where we've really come from, where we are (which isn't always easy to see), and where we're going to. It's a massive story; an incredible amount to take in. It's a story that by itself, is enough to process karma, realign botched DNA and activate your spirit-light-body. For me, the recent movie "Exodus: of Gods and Kings" is one that speaks volumes...

Delicious No-bake Carrot Cake Recipe

This raw version of my carrot carrot has made a very welcome appearance on some of the latest Openhand residential workshops, so it feels like an excellent recipe to share this week here. I created my first version of this recipe over 15 years ago. It's really special to me and it's an honour and joy to share the recipe here. I've even created a video that shows you how below (especially helpful for visual cues)!

The Metaphoric Message of the Malaysian Airline Crash?

We usually get some pretty powerful metaphoric messages during the festive season. Like for example the Asian Tsunami of 2004. I believe it's because the mass consciousness is focused in a particular direction, so, by the Law of Attraction, we draw realigning messages to us. This year, there was the tragic crash of the Malaysian Airliner, the third of 2014 for that carrier group. There is no doubt in my mind, we're being spoken to here, by the realigning flow - there's a deeper significance.

What might it be saying? Why should we all take heed?

Robo Bees and the Synthetic Reality Agenda

I find it amazing how you can glean the truth of what's going on in the world more from the movies than the mainstream. The story bubbling up through evolving human consciousness is one of being enslaved within a system of control that we're working to break free from. Films like Hunger Games, Elysium, and Divergent are indicative. We're working to reclaim the sovereignty of the earth. The very next agenda we must rise up against is 'transhumanism', so eloquently depicted in the Johnny Depp film "Transcendence". The powers-that-be are proposing all manner of synthetic realities. Watch this greenpeace video about "Robo Bees". Let us not sleepwalk into a false reality agenda...

The Secret of Success in the Festive Season

We're moving into the festive season again!

It's a veritable cocktail of mixed emotion, a gravy train of excessive consumption, a big fat 'turkey' of failed expectation. But it doesn't have to be. It could be a great success too. You could learn enormous things about yourself. You could accelerate your mastery. And, have a great time - you could have your festive pudding and eat it too.

Sound an impossible feat? Not at all. Here's how...

Seed Roast Loaf - festive food for evolution

This is a brilliant seasonal dish that has featured on many of the Openhand winter retreats here. A perfect recipe for conscious eating. This recipe first appeared in my book 'Trinitys Conscious Kitchen'.

This seed roast is surprisingly light and easy to digest. It serves delightfully with the mushroom gravy recipe and roast veggies. I've created a recipe tuition video so we can go through it step by step, to make sure you come out with a perfect loaf!

Superfood Benefits of Celery to Support your Spiritual Journey

As a discerning health seeker on the spiritual path I can't help but get excited about celery and its myriad of supportive benefits. Being healthy helps give me a spiritual clarity and profound sense of wholeness that has supported my spiritual journey no end! Celery is most definitely on my top 10 list.

On a practical level it has a distinctive, tangy crunch that adds a refreshing depth to salads, whilst easily earning a five star thumbs-up as the perfect finger food. Celery also works wonders as a natural scoop for dips, pates and nut butters. You'll often find it as an ingredient in soups and stews, to bring a tasty base flavour to various culinary creations. An unexpected bonus for anyone watching their weight, is that it's ridiculously low in calories, with scientists going as far as saying that chewing it uses up more energy than the vegetable itself contains!
