There will come a point on the spiritual path where there's nothing for it but to risk all. It's when you hit the edge of ultimate freedom - to begin to walk the blade edge of life. The soul wants to flow as freedom. It doesn't calculate (as the ego) what is logical, safe, or will gain the best practical outcome. It is yearning to be forged by the crucible of life into something immortal, beyond fear and limitation. Not that the soul doesn't have boundaries, not that it doesn't blend into rigid realities, it does. But it's purpose is always to be the expression of the unbounded, unconstrained, fearlessness of the One. That's why there will come a point on the path to risk all...
What is the Soul?
There are many definitions of what the Soul is. For us here at Openhand, consciousness flows through the universe as waves on a vast ocean. You and we are each a unique blend of these various energetic characteristics - aspects of beingness.
So we are being both the ocean and a unique blend of universal consciousness too. It's what we call a 'Soul Ray Harmonic'. The Soul is what makes us unique, animates who we truly are, and the Soul's full liberation and expression is the purpose of our existence.
When the Soul can flow through the experience of our lives without attachment and full unbridled expression, then we are self realised and Enlightend.

Fear is what so frequently holds people back on the spiritual path. Fear of what might happen if you take a certain step. Fear of completely letting go and where that might lead. Fear of hurting others by being truly authentic. Fear invades the mind, emotions and body. But to simply 'over-write it' with positive thinking, positive intentions or infusing 'love and light' leads only more layers of identity. The liberated free flow of the soul is not something you intention, or create by a veneer of gloss. It just is, and it simply arises when we open the space for it. And when the soul invites authentic choice, that's when fear is likely to arise. So how do you deal with it most effectively?...
There will be key times on the path where you're presented with vital opportunities for accelerated evolutionary growth. They are windows of possibility where your soul is wanting to grow and expand into a new level of conscious existence. So the Universe conspires to present a cauldron of alchemical change, where you're tested emotionally, physically and mentally to your threshold and beyond. It's a bit like a new flower, working to breakthrough tough surface layers. By those pathfinders who've endured them, they've become known as 'initiations'. They are the most earth-shattering, bone-shaking you will encounter. So it pays to know something of what they are about. It can help you make sense of what's going on...
I’ve just completed Openhand’s highly successful 5GATEWAYS world tour (phew, what a ride!). I met many wonderful people, stepping out of this crazy screwed up 3D society, with such humility, beauty, softness, empathy, courage and will. I feel so blessed to be working with the ascending group of souls - you melt my heart. One thing that seems common to just about all of you, is how challenging you find it in society just being you - that society seems to undermine pure authentic beingness. So it does. But there is a way to work through it. It’s about opening a space through the contractions you might feel and looking carefully for the threads of beingness that are wanting to come through. I call the approach Openway...
The gathering tides are progressively strengthening now in the Earth's Great 5D Shift. I can feel an underlying ‘rip tide' having an enormous effect in the way we create our lives, in our careers, relationships and general living circumstances. For those who continue to ignore the shift, life in the old reality construct will become increasingly challenged in the years ahead. Those who align themselves with it however, will find the flow unleashes enormous potential for evolutionary growth, thereby receiving abundantly unlimited resources to support their higher self actualisation, especially where that’s encouraging the shift for other sentient life too...
I'm traveling around the world at the moment, sharing the Openhand Philosophy on life, and I find myself on a stopover in Hawaii, on my way to the US West Coast. Hawaii of course is considered a paradisiacal destination - sun, sea, sand and surf. This morning I was out early on the beach, catching the waves myself, but not surfing ones, these were waves of my soul. With each breath, each movement in deep consciousness, the unleashing of soul became ever more blissful. As I watched the surfers working hard to catch each wave, I was feeling life can be so straightforward if we allow it to. We don't have to effort and struggle at all; in fact that just takes us away from the heavenly nirvana which is in everyone's reach...
It's a challenging world out there no doubt. And it's getting more challenging by the day as the 3D world consciousness gets decidedly wobbly. If you're still trying to shape and control the old reality in some particular way, or are dependent on it going in a specific direction that provides resources and support, then think again. We must find a new way of being and creating. Conversely, if we can align with the shift into the higher 5D paradigm, we're going to find all our manifestations supported. How do you make the switch? What's involved? Here's how to follow the path of light through it all...
Here at Openhand we're truly blessed to connect with kindred spirits in the awakening movement around the world. Whilst we're all on a unique path, so many of your stories bear the hallmarks of similarity: many of you are looking at the mess humanity has gotten itself into and wondering how we're going to find passage to a new shore. To me, everything is going perfectly according to the divine unfolding. Yes there's certainly more instability on the way, yes climate change is accelerating and yes natural resources are dwindling and getting ever more expensive. The system is looking ever more crazy and outlandish by the minute. But things have to break down in order for the new to emerge...
You can see it now can't you? The higher dimensional consciousness has opened up and you're having visions of 'future-landing-now'. As these visions begin to steadily take shape, the excitement builds. You're creating consciously, you can literally feel the impact you're having on the field around you. There's no struggle to create like before. Things begin to effortlessly click into place. However, to fully realise the completeness of these miraculous 'dreams', you've got to be prepared to let go of the old reality you're stepping out of. You've got to be prepared to "burn your boats".
Why is this so important?...
The unthinkable has happened. A 'raptor' in a suit has been elected to the most powerful political position on the planet. But was it really that unthinkable? Take a close look at any shopping mall, any town, any city, any grazing land or ploughed field. The mark of the consumptive 'beast' is literally everywhere. And the majority are too blind to recognise themselves a willing acquiescence to it all - the wanton destruction of Mother Earth. I'm actually relieved by it. Why? Because at least we witness the revelation of truth. No more hiding behind veils; no more speaking with forked tongue. What you see is what you get. Let it inspire more of us to shake off this sleepy delusion...
