Do You have what it takes to Ascend?

It's a bit like falling off a log
To some embarking the Spiritual Path, contemplating Ascension into the Higher Paradigm, I know it can seem like a tall order, other-worldly, out-of-sight. People often ask me 'do I have what it takes to Ascend?' The very fact that you're asking the question suggests 'Yes indeed!' Anyone can ascend - specifically: continually evolve on an ascending vibration back to the Source. Every soul is seeded to do this. In fact Ascension is a bit like falling off a log. You just have to let go. Then anyone can do it (in fact it's more like 'undoing'). Although falling off that proverbial log can sometimes seem like a monumental leap of faith...

Breaking Through the Pain of Existence

I’d say one of the biggest problems humanity is dealing with right now, is something I call “The Pain of Existence”. It’s the disconnection from the sublime feeling of unity with the divine, and therefore unconsciously seeking some kind of substitute in the outer world: distraction, entertainment, relationship, sex, drugs etc etc. It’s not that we shouldn’t enjoy life, the problem is identification with the outer mirror: we need it to be a certain way, rather than realising it as the mirror to the inner perfection of the divine. How does that mirroring work? How can we locate the divine through all these kinds of circumstances in our lives?...

The Influence of the Solar Logos on our Ascension

Becoming a child of the universe
Anyone whose read Divinicus by now, will know the significance I feel of the "Solar Logos" - the soul of our Sun - and its anticipated impact on the changing biosphere of our planet. Of course Earth is intricately connected to the Sun, not just as a ball of rock and dust orbiting it by some perverse 'gravitational pull'. These are cosmic deities, drawn to each other by the universal Law of Attraction, just as you were to your father; there's an intimate interrelation - a heavenly dance taking place. So what's the significance of the recent solar storms, growing at a time when Gaia's magnetic field is dwindling?...

The Universal Law of Non-Efforting

What does 'non-efforting' really mean?


There is an unwritten 'law' of non-efforting that is prevalent in countless spiritual texts with regards to walking the spiritual path. It is something we frequently refer to here at Openhand. It is of course about following the natural flow of the universe in every moment and not resisting it. However, it seems that frequently, this unwritten law is used as an excuse for not taking a certain step that's clearly presenting itself, or indeed not doing anything much at all! In our view, this is a serious mis-understanding of what true 'non-efforting' really means and is potentially very limiting...

What happens internally when we start to infuse Soul?

When we begin to observe ourselves and our behaviour - our thoughts our feelings and our emotions - then we begin to know ourselves as more than the small "I". We begin to open the heart and feel our connection to the divine; sensed as joy, timelessness, expansiveness, interconnectivity, unconditional love. Many approaches in the Spiritual Mainstream would concur with this. But the question is, what happens next? What goes on internally as the soul infuses through our being; what will be encountered? And most importantly, how best can we work to integrate soul for the benefit of our lives...

What a rabbit taught me about being an empath

Insight and gifts come to us in many shapes and forms. When I spend time in nature a multi-dimensional dialogue always happens, much in the way that two people would speak with words; except in nature it is more of a a telepathic conversation. To reach that space where the ‘real conversation’ happens, we have to let go of everything else and find a space within, beyond judgement; beyond expectations; surrendering into the moment. That’s where the real conversation happens. You become at one with nature. You weave and dance together in a place of unity consciousness, where all souls unite. It’s divine.

The Power of Meditation

Healing humanity and all life
Right now in the world the old fear based reality has become unstable and is beginning to fracture. It's what science calls the movement of disordering free entropy. But wherever you have that destructive energy breaking things down, the miraculous thing is, reconstructive energies take shape immediately the parts of the old consciousness fragment. It is a reordering energy science calls 'neg-entropy' and the Awakening Movement knows much more appropriately as unconditional love! It's drawing us into a higher paradigm of greater energetic harmony. Meditation has the power to do this. We become channels of consciousness for the new energies to flow in. Not only is meditation powerfully healing for us, but the whole of life on our planet...

Dealing with Dramatic Spiritual Upheaval

I strongly sense that the world has now edged into a new phase of its evolution. During the Divinicus Tour, people in the Openhand Community had the sense that Gaia was 'waiting'. Waiting for what? The Shift into the fifth density is not a time-line, but an event-line. The pathway must be opened progressively. Humanity is beginning to emerge from eons of darkness. He may not yet be fully ready, but the Earth cannot wait any longer. Realignment with the divine flow must now start to happen on a global scale. Due to its injustice, inequity and misalignment, the old reality will be steadily broken down, over time, so as to provide breathing space for more souls to break through, break out and ascend...

Breaking through Personal Limitation: "I can, I will, I must"


Do you ever get the sense that it's not "SC" (spiritually correct) to express passionate will? In the 'New Age Movement', where 'acceptance' and 'surrender' are the big buzz words, is there still a place for passionate courage, commitment and determination? Certainly to me there is.

So how do these qualities relate to acceptance and surrender? Are they meant to be blended together in some way? How do you commit to something with your whole heart, but without attached struggling?...

What is the Purpose of YOUR incarnation? Why exactly are YOU here?


The divine Gift of Beingness.
It seems to me so many are trying to figure out exactly why they are here, in this incarnation right now. And in a world of increasing turbulence, exactly what are you here to do? How can we help? It's a question that's enough to drive you crazy just thinking about it! So what if the reason for your incarnation could easily be revealed to you from the current circumstances of your life? What if a simple change of perspective on how you create reality could uplift not just you, but everyone around you? What if that's the only truly positive way to change the world...
