- "What an interesting journey life is and never more so than when you realise that there is a bigger, “unseen” picture, i.e. when you "wake up". However, this is just the beginning. That was the most catalytic understanding Openhand gave me. Since then my spiritual journey has accelerated beyond anything I imagined possible. Ancient mystical truths used to seem like abstract quotes that didn’t quite speak my language, now they can seem the perfect encapsulation in words of something I have lived; something I now know through my own experience to be true. This is the power of following the Openhand Approach, to arrive at your own truths, having tested the all of it yourself. When I look back I can see where I walked in circles for many years before Openhand gave me the techniques for true spiritual evolution. Since then, I can see my journey has followed the route map for Ascension called "The Five Gateways", described by Chris Bourne. This is a journey through expansions of consciousness that I feel sure would have eluded me otherwise.
I am a down to earth, practical person who can translate the esoteric nature of the inner work required to walk your path, into an everyday language accessible to all. I feel drawn to assist people on their journey when they feel stuck or confused, particularly those trying to break through their fears to make a Realignment. This is where I currently see many blockages for humanity. My life is devoted to my own self realisation and to sharing my journey for the benefit of others. Freedom, Enlightenment and Ascension are ours by birthright. It's time to claim them."
Before devoting herself to her spiritual path, and service to Openhand, Lesley had a multi-faceted career which started in industry and small business, then moved through allopathic and natural healthcare and the facilitation of shamanic workshops. She takes time in understanding where people are at, giving practical analogies and using her direct experience of the Five Gateways to bring in clarity when people feel off track or lost. She enjoys supporting small groups by organising Companionship Days and connecting one on one with individuals in her roles as a spiritual life coach and Five Gateways facilitator.
