5D Shift: Exposing the Myth of the "Critical Mass" Ascension

Submitted by Open on Mon, 06/03/2019 - 05:32

It's fine that we have distortion in our philosophy. Everything is a perspective, there are no absolutes in relativistic reality. However, what can be severely limiting and derailing, is where a myth becomes an accepted norm within the group consciousness. Particularly one that might prevent people from empowering themselves by following their own path, their own trajectory, and in their own time. Such, I maintain, is the illusion of the idea that, 'humanity will ascend when there is a critical mass of people to cause a collective shift into the New Paradigm'. The history of previous shifts through the aeons does NOT bear witness to this. So how do Shifts really work?

I should begin by saying, just like anyone else, I am only able to share a perspective on truth, not the ABSOLUTE truth, because that can only be experienced. However, I do call on a good deal of experience from similar shifts in other constellations. I invite you to keep an open mind and heart and find your own truth in relation to what I am about to share.

The Absolute Miracle of Relativity, of Life!

Ever since I've been exploring and sharing the current Shift phenomenon here on Earth, I've frequently come across, what seems to be, a widely held view that Humanity's Ascension will happen all together, and when there is a 'critical mass' of consciousness to 'swing the balance' and 'raise collective vibration' into the New Paradigm. And that this will happen due to some major "Event", such as plasma irradiation from the sun or the Pole Shift or the like. To my mind there is definite truth in various of these elements, but all too often the truth is distorted and twisted; I've personally witnessed in spiritual work how it derails and limits people. Not to say that these events won't have essential roles to play in The Shift, I believe they will. Just not in the way they're often spoken of in the spiritual mainstream.

For me, it all boils down to a basic phenomenon of the Universe, which is Realisation and Actualisation of The Self. Life appeared the moment that the singularity exploded into relativity of consciousness - 'this' and 'that', as waves of awareness that simply arose. This inevitable emergence (given the nature of infinite time, because there is no time) then cascaded outwards as the big bang and progressively condensed into the vast myriad of form we now witness in the known Universe. An absolute miracle!

Time is an illusion, because all is happening in one moment of now. The whole space-time-continuum moves together, which is why you can still have trajectory.  It's why there is still a previous configuration of the entirety, which we call 'the past', and a future configuration that we are moving into - which we can call 'future landing now'. It means you can get on the bus at point A, travel to work, and at a given amount of 'time' later, reasonably expect to be sitting at your desk. So the whole Universe is moving together and yet reconfiguring and morphing in the moment.

The Dynamic of Light and Dark

Within this dynamic 'the light', which we may call 'Unity Consciousness' (the memory of the original condition of Oneness) is interweaving through the 'dark', what we might call 'Separation Consciousness' ('light and dark are contained within parentheses so as to invite non judgment). Collectively, this dynamic has taken the form of the Universal Torus of interweaving Unity and Separation consciousness. By carefully witnessing the dynamic in consciousness, within, you can clearly see there are places where the light gets stuck within the separation, which thereby causes a dimming - a 'tightness' - resulting in the sense of disconnect from The One, from the Source, what we might call 'the original conditon of oneness'.

These distortions or 'blind spots' create polarity by bending space time around them. Reality is created this way around the exploration of such 'karma'. And souls, as waves of light, are drawn into the density by the Universal Law of Attraction in order to bring deeper awareness into the distortion. Thus, 'shining the light' unravels the distortion. But actually, what this really means, is that souls are drawn by their own unconsciousness, their own karma, which mirrors a blind spot contained within the collective karmic construct. By working their way through, and unravelling aligned truth within the distortion, light is now infused through that previously dim spot in consciousness.

All At Different Places of Realisation

Importantly all souls are at different points in their journey - in their journey of remembering and realisation. Some will have been born very early (an earlier form) in the cascading universal dynamic. Others much later (a later form of the space time continuum). Some will have already worked through deep complexity of the relativistic dynamic, others will be reaching the point where they have become basically 'awake'. So throughout history, you get souls that clearly stand out from the collective in terms of their awakeness, such as the Buddha, or Jesus for example (not to mention plenty of others). It is not that they are any more special than anyone else, simply that they have travelled through enough experience through the space-time-continuum to be able to shed light on what's taking place around them, and others resonate with what they feel as truth emanting from them.

And whichever 'master' you care to consider, they are all at unique points on their journey and all expressing uniquely, based on their own experience. Because each is at a different stage in their evolution. And this leads to the main point of my article:

The soul is on a progressive journey of realisation and actualisation of The One. Each is at a different stage of that emergence. Whilst we might come together into a collective construct, each one of us is in unique circumstances of our making with unique karma to unravel through. If one soul could realise your journey for you, if your journey was identical to the journey of another, then by the Law of Attraction, both souls would merge into oneanother and become one, with no separation. Life can only be sustained by the difference, by relativity, no matter how subtle. What this means is that a soul can only permanently shift vibration into another vibrational frequency when it is ready to, when it has journied and realised enough to sustain the higher vibration.

Another soul may be able to reflect a resonant light, or particular collective circumstances may cause plenty to start activating, but each soul is embarked on a unique journey. Each soul is learning and evolving at its own speed. If another soul could realise for you, then that negates your own journey, your own reason for being. You simply wouldn't exist!

Forging the Soul

For anyone whose been involved in intensive spiritual work, they will surely tell you that the journey is challenging and mysterious. That each step is crafted through the deep exploration and inquiry of consciousness. That true progress can often be a nitty gritty, painstaking phenomenon, of uncovering the veils of distortion through challenging circumstances and thereby progressively forging the soul. This is the majesty of self realisation. You determine your unqiue sovereignty by forging the soul in the crucible of life. To suggest that the shift by those around you can suddenly negate all of this painstaking work, all of this crafting and honing, all of this personal karma, all of this dedication, is not only naive, but also dishonouring of the journey of realisation that each soul is weaving.

How would the salmon ever become the miracle that it is, without its own majestic forging up the river of life, back to the source of its own essence?

What we can say however, is that one 'salmon' will inspire another. When Roger Bannister did the unthinkable in the 1950s and broke the 4 minute mile, it precipitated a plethora of others to do the same in the years that followed. BUT, each still had to do the work, still put in the miles, still forge muscles, expand heart and lung capacity in order to achieve the same. So it precipitated a wave of people who inspired each other. Collective events that inspire and resonate soul can do that, yes. But each person still has to do the necessary work.

A Clear Point of Divergence Has Begun

To me, what clearly defines our Ascension right now, is that a wave of people who have a sense of what is unfolding, can feel the inner calling driving them forwards into the light, who are prepared to put in the daily commitment of work to forge sovereignty of soul. In my observation, they are doing so because they realise the urgency of the current situation and the majesty of what is possible. At these times of great challenge and change, I ask you, what else is there truly worthwhile to do?

So what of some great 'event', such as the Pole Shift or Powerful Solar Transformation?

When the collective (those who are truly exploring) gets wind of the potential for dramatic change to our reality, then they pick up the impetus, they pick up the calling and motivation. As other 'salmon' begin the journey back to the source, so it inspires them to do the same. Hence you get a wave of souls moving forwards approximately 'together'. And since there will be similar karmic lessons common to all, then people will be able to resonate amongst each other. And this is wonderful, it fosters tremendous sense of community and belonging - of the great adventure. BUT, nevertheless, each must work to run the '4 minute mile' in their own unique way, by forging the 'muscles' in their own 'legs'.

Do not be fooled, no one else, nor any particular set of circumstances, can do that for you. Although yes, I agree, a culminating Event is underway (explore here), and a strong wave of galactic resonant energy can animate the soul and inspire other people around you.

Right now what I witness happening out their in society is the beginnings of a divergence. As I shared in my recent article about the Revelations of the Hopi Prophecy, there is clearly a vast body of people either unconsciously, or with a degree of awareness, heading into a high tech, 'SMART', synthetic reality. You can witness this progressively enfolding plenty around you, whether at the bus stop, the restaurant, at work, home, and even in the deepest countryside. Then there are others who see past the illusion of this mental captivation; that the smoke and mirrors point not to greater freedom of choice, but greater channeling and confinement - a swallowing of sovereignty.

Progressive Levels of Awakening

However, let's also be clear about 'awakening'. Awakening to the illusion of the matrix is NOT the same as awakening to the soul. And awakening to the soul, is NOT the same as following the soul. In other words, as Openhand shared in the 5GATEWAYS film, there are progressive levels of awakening. It is my clear contention that there are plenty out there 'pointing at the moon', but not digging deep enough within, to discover true 'heaven'. I call the phenomenon because there's a tremendous amount of distraction pointing to solutions 'out there' or fixing the external, when the causality is on the internal. Waiting for the 'cabal' to fall for example 'so that freedom may truly happen'. Or waiting for ET disclosure 'out there', when the real influences are happening inside within the unconscious shadows.
Understanding Entities & Energy Implants and How to Remove Them

So we've reached a determination point, a divergence is beginning to happen. As spiritually incorrect as this may seem for me to call it, nevertheless, it's the truth that I clearly witness. A wave of souls is clearly beginning to move - I can feel it all around me in the ether. And I witness it in the small groups of quietly dedicated and committed people around the world. It's happening beyond the hype, the surface fizz, the glitz and the glamour. What do you honestly witness?

Let's Inspire and Motivate Each Other

My calling is for us to inspire each other, yes. Let us reflect the circumstances of our own journey so others may gain resonance for theirs. Let us engage in community and inspire each other in the great adventure. But at the same time, remember, this is a journey of realisation of your own unique soul. Only you can decide to take the steps necessary. Only you can shine the light through your particular circumstances in your own unique way. Only you can find the grace and the grit to push through the necessary layers that are yours alone.

That is your blessing. Your particular miracle that only you can realise. It's what gives each meaning and purpose. Let us celebrate in the phenomenal diversity of life, this majesty created by the relativity, by our uniqueness, and inspire those to the left and right of you. Onwards and upwards!

"You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour.  And there are things to be considered . . .

Where are you living?
What are you doing?
 What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader."

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, "This could be a good time!"

    "There is a river flowing now very fast.  It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.  They will try to hold on to the shore.   They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly. 

    "Know the river has its destination.  The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water.   And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.  At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves.  For the moment that we do,  our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. 

    "The time for the lone wolf is over.  Gather yourselves!  Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary.  All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. 

    "We are the ones we've been waiting for."

I believe another acceleration is beginning to happen in the shift, which is the collective response to the various attempts by the shadowstate to lock consciousness down. In a relativisitc universe, where everything is interconnected, you cannot lock the movement down without it gathering behind the dam to eventually push it over - you cannot indefinitely block the flow! My view is that this summer's series of crop circles have definitely depicted and reflected the opening of Gaia's Stargates, which I'll be exploring in LiveStream on Saturday the 4th (LiveStream Details here). This crop circle was the most recent, which to me, beautifully depicts the movement of spiralling energy - ascending openings in the field...

The energy is certainly shifting to help us out of the density. However as I explained in my featured article today, we must each do the inner work in order to bring the shift to fruition for each of us personally. It's our commitment here at Openhand to continually illuminate the pathways forwards through these deceptive and difficult times. We can do it. We can break down the illusions and find the real aligned consciousness through it. As a new Openhand Academic Year is about to begin (September 1st), let's gear up internally for a renewed cycle, with renewed commitment to the journey of our soul...

5D Shift: Exposing the Myth of the "Critical Mass" Ascension

Blessings to all

Open 🙏


27/11/20: Openhand Journal Update: I felt to share this article again today, "Exposing the Myth of the Critical Mass Ascension". It's an essential exploration for all on the path of the shift, for a number of important reasons. Firstly, to understand that each soul is having their own journey, in their own time and at their own speed. Some souls have journied plenty more and integrated more - they are ready for the shift. Whereas plenty are simply not at this point - and that's entirely okay. Just as you wouldn't want another soul to walk your path for you, so it's not compassionate and truly caring to try to walk someone else's path for them - to encourage them to run before they can walk.

Exposing the Myth of the "Critical Mass" Ascension

What it also means is that for those who recognise they are moving with the shift and it's right for them to do so, not to get drawn back by guilt, attachment or sense of obligation to those around us who are not shifting.

Let's be clear: certainly in what Openhand is given to put forwards, Gaia is shifting into the Higher 5D Paradigm and building the new construct there, based on the 5D Crystalline Grid. It will indeed be a "golden age". But it certainly doesn't require everyone to join that, if they're not at this time ready. 2020 has demonstrated an opening divide, a parting of the waves, where some will willingly go into the new synthetic reality of the 4th Industrial Revolution - it will lead to another 3D/4D construct, that probably goes off planet as the shift completes. But for those who stay here, and move with Gaia's shift, we'll move into the New 5D Paradigm. And that definitely does NOT depend on some critical mass of people for it to happen.

I encourage all to contemplate this and to meditate with it. It's something we often explore in the Openhand Events and Retreats. To become accustomed to the different pathways of the soul - and the parting of the waves of which the Hopi Elders also spoke. It's essential to equalise with this and become accustomed with it - to be clear and determined to follow your own pathway, no matter what - for it will take this level of commitment to journey through the challenges to come. Remember also, that we are never truly separate. The love for others remains in our hearts. And no doubt, at some point down to flow, if the natural Law of Attraction creates it, then you'll meet with loved ones who take a different journey at this time.

Above all, be clear to centre in your own path and own journey of realisation. It's why I found it essential expose the myth of the critical mass ascension....

wow, so true and beautifully expressed, they say white is made from frequencies and spectrum of all colors, what a lightness of color, what strength and integrity to hold them all together and getting acknowledged in a way to purity and piety 

The beauty is in the seeing of grace although grace is happening always....and still all colours have their own uniqueness, their beauty and their sovereignty is but not lost, each has its own depth and virtue therefore, creator's way of empowering each colour, for probably someone out there mentioned grey to see the miracle of white and a tinge of black and that it does not lessen the personality of individual white and black........if black dominates and overpowers white somehow, whether it may realize or not, the truth will be - it will not truly be black..

it is of utmost importance to know our true nature, so interesting that the paramatma (God) is called nirgun nirankar (above or beyond attribute and formless), and yet manifests as all that is, divine knowledge, great love and benevolence or grace then opens the door to know ones greater self, The atom is one and was forgotten once in the making of the world or cosmos and then found again one day by those who wanted to know more...

love is alchemy



I felt to draw attention to this Openhand article again today, "Exposing the Myth of the Critical Mass Ascension". In my view, history generally reveals that waves of people are preparing themselves to ascend at any given time, not the whole civilisation. There's no reason that this shouldn't happen, but it does depend on each individual doing the necessary karmic processing and forging of soul.

In society right now, to my eyes, there is most definitely a divergence of those preparing to ascend and the majority readily acquiescing to the control narrative. Maybe this will change further down the path, but at this time, I don't see any evidence of that.

It's important for evolving people in the ascending group to take note: you definitely don't have to wait for those around you and get held back thinking you do. I'd say focus on your own journey and connect with those who are inspired by what you're doing.
