Here at Openhand we're sitting in snow on the windswept hills of Dartmoor. We're empathising with tens of millions in the USA affected by the recent polar vortex, which has seen cities like Chicago drop to under minus 50 celsius wind chill. That's colder than the top of Everest, colder than the Arctic itself right now! It's a huge inconvenience to society, yet I encourage us all to embrace the mirrors only we have created. Of course this is climate change related, due to the progressive slowing of the jetstream. But what can we positively learn from it about our deep core spirituality? Let's take maximum opportunity from the mirror, and grow as spiritual beings in the process...
We are the Master Creators!
It's a curious irony isn't it, that as global warming impacts planetary weather patterns certain parts of it get deluged in snow and ice. But that's exactly what's happening right now in the USA and parts of Europe. Global warming has slowed the jestream - a barrier that usually keeps the cold air in the actic. Now it regularly softens and 'wobbles' much deeper south deluging previously warmer latitidues with blankets of snow and ice. It's creating spectacular effects...
It's certainly good to see people finding the lighter side of the challenge! I've said pretty consistently that The Shift is going to present us with countless mirrors by which to see ourselves as it progressively unfolds. What do I mean exactly?
The point is that we are the master creators of our lives and experiences. Accelerating climate change is predominantly caused by lifestyles within society that are out of kilter with nature, and our deeper interconnection with the Universe. In which case, life will always present a counterbalancing correction. Such a mirror impacts us internally, affects the reality we've created, and invites us to go much deeper through the inner layers of separation and resistance. The reflection of space-time-continuum that we bend around our distortion offers a dramatic wake up call.
The Eternal Light Burning at the Core of You
Whenever you're faced with any deep inconvenience, fear, worry or contraction about something, paradoxically, these are doorways to deep inner truth - the eternal burning light at the core of you. Society has spent aeons avoiding these doorways and placating the pain of inner confrontation through distractive consumption - one's attention is constantly lured into the outer.
However, when something inconvenient like this happens, there's the maximum opportunity. As the inner tightness reveals itself, that's where the soul is identifying with the illusion. Now you're shown reflections of how and why - what did you think you needed or wanted? If you can turn right into the discomfort and feel deeply into it, then you can break right through the limitation of it. You become so intimate with it, that you become The One in it. It then ceases to define you. Now you can soften deep into your core inner being, the completion of every journey, the answer to every question.

The Iceman Cometh
Have you heard about the "Iceman" Wim Hof? In 1995 he found himself in a deeply challenging place - his wife having committed suicide leaving him to bring up his four kids alone...
"I had to be there for my children, it's a black hole within yourself, it breaks your heart and you don't know why, but the train of a daily life is going on ... my children made me survive in that time, but nature healed my wounds. The cold gave me direct understanding of deeper breathing, and how to heal a broken heart."
How we can Breakthrough in Any Given Opportunity
Here's the thing though, it's not just about the cold, ANYTHING that you retract from, react to or close down to, becomes a phenomenal gateway. Instead of turning away from the pain, you turn right into the discomfort and work it through. It could be Intermittant Fasting for example, where you're continually fasting for 18 hours per day, which causes the inner digestive mechanisms to quieten. You'll hit many identitive barriers of craving and perceived need - these are the hooks that stop you softening right into your core. But where you confront these, soften and surrender, then you can breakthrough into your deepest core being.
I've expressed the Openhand approach to Breakthrough in our latest video diary, "Your Divine Orientation" here below. Let's not get phased by dramtic change that's now unfolding across the earth. Instead let's embrace the spiritual mirrors as phenomenal opportunity...
It's high time we involved ourselves directly in what it means to be "Living the Shift". It's not something to fear, but to embrace and thrive within. That's exactly how we'll be approaching the upcoming Openhand "Living the Shift" gatherings. We won't be dumping you in ice (!), but we will most definitely be breaking through into your deepest core being.
