The Breakthrough Book is here...Get Yours!

Submitted by TeamOpenhand on Tue, 08/30/2016 - 17:42

Breakthrough has finally arrived! Open has been working away, with every spare moment over the last year, creating the all new Breakthrough Workshop which is set to travel the globe this month, starting off here in Avalon, before swiftly sailing over the pond to Europe. AND - deep, deep inhale my friends... as many of you already know, Open has completed his next book "Breakthrough" (which has actually been over 12 years in the making!). It's truly is an "epic journey of awakening", inspired to help others make that all important Spiritual Breakthrough that will change everything. Being involved in the design process, I've had more than my fair share of sneak peeks - so I am absolutely thrilled to announce it's release.

Here's what are people are saying already...

  • Jen...

    "through teary eyes, heart brimming over with gratitude for Chris’ journey, for the determination, perseverance, courage - just the sheer intensity with which he lived here and the absolute beauty of witnessing his reconnection through his incredible adventures…the magic, the love, the doubt and insecurity…it just touches me so deeply."


    "...just finished the book. I found myself getting up early and staying up late to read more of the unfolding saga. What a ride!! Jam-packed with wisdom...inspiration popped up on every page. I wanted to copy and paste to Social Media little tidbits every day. This will surely speak to many…."


    "I woke up at 5am, saw your email and began reading your book. It's been an hour and I can't put it away. Such a great work! And so synchronistic for me right now! I'll spread the word."

The response so far has been amazing. We've started sending books everywhere. We have readers in the USA, Australia the UK, Canada, India, Malaysia, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand (to name a few). And that was just on the pre-release. It makes my heart skip a beat with delight every time I seal a package and feel it sending another powerful ripple of divine inspiration somewhere around the globe. It's thrilling to be immersed in piles of books whilst Open signs them with love. I can't wait to hear how you all get on with it! If you haven't yet ordered your copy then here are the links...

Such emotive feedback Cathy. I am humbled. Thankyou.

Open *give_rose*

I turned the last page of Open's "Breathrough" book in the middle of last night, tears streaming down. What a gift Open has given us in putting Chris Bourne's spiritual evoutionary journey out there for all to read. His joys, his sorrows, his suffering, his triumps, his achievements, his setbacks, his breakdowns, his breakthoughs about the deeper meaning behind it all, and finally his loving and generous commitment to staying with us here in 3D long enough to gift us 5 Gateways before he ascended to 5D. It gladdens my heart to feel Chris in a higher world.

I wept for Chris Bourne and everyone he encountered in his lifetime. His wife, Amanda, their children, his parents, friends, colleagues, lovers. So much suffering we all experience here. Heartbreaking. So hard for those who breakthrough and are misunderstood by others. But also hard for those who don't get it. Tears streaming down as I feel this in my own life.

I was acutely aware of being triggered by certain passages in the book, particularly when Chris and Amanda have their first child, and Chris feels even more disconnected from his wife who was focused on caring for their baby. It brought up intense feelings of abandonment by my husband when our children were born and anger about how women, in general, are overburdened and suffer so many inequities in this patriarchal culture. That's not to say that I didn't feel enormous compassion for Chris, as well. I'm aware I have "stuff" to process around this and feel to delve into in my own writing.

The vivid descriptions of Chris's life in the military, how soldiers are cruelly mistreated, and the physical pain he endured and ultimately triumphed over resonated deeply with me in my own karmic journey down through the eons. I felt such heartache and anguish reading these passages.

Too many insights from reading and feeling into the book to catalogue here.

Deep gratitude to Open for this epic account of Chris Bourne's life and evolutionary journey. I know the book will touch the hearts of many as it has mine.

Much Love,


Winged ones indeed Tigger - lovely sharing *OK*

Let's keep finding the medicine magic!

Open :-)

Just finished Breakthrough and I loved it. Took me some time to read it because every few pages I had to pause as memories of my own breakthroughs forgotten or not recognized came to the surface. There are so many gems in this book, so many "ah, yeses", so much resonance. The book for me was another reminder of gratitude for the journey because it really is an amazing adventure we are all on.

Throughout the book I kept seeing the number 3. I would be reading, and 3 would flash in my mind.

Towards the end of the book, I was out walking with the dogs and there in my path lay a bald eagle feather. Although I have been gifted an eagle feather, I have never found one in my path. At first I didn't pick it up, just looked at it in wonderment. Eagle medicine is that of spirit, it is very powerful medicine, worn by chiefs in their head dresses. To my grandmother's people, you have to earn an eagle feather. The feather lay directly across from my mentor, Grandmother Standing Tree. I felt her saying, "pick it up." I cupped the feather in my two hands and felt this amazing sense of lightness, as if I were a feather too.

The following day on the same trail, ten feet from where I had found the eagle feather, was a wild turkey feather. Turkey is the medicine of give-away or pot-latch, sharing or giving what you have with others; to share abundance not hang on to abundance. I put the feather in my hat band to join the eagle feather: giving and spirit.

The next day I was drawn to take a different path to the creek, through the pine forest. And there in my path was a crow feather. Crow medicine is that of magic, shape shifting, moving through darkness and light. Since I live with a family of crows I am quite used to seeing crow feathers. But this one was different: it was not an old feather shed because it was no longer needed. This feather was newly given, pristine. It joined the eagle, and turkey feathers in my hat.

I feel the medicines of these birds represent Breakthrough: spirit, generosity, and movement through darkness into light.

Open's "Breakthrough" book arrived this week. I drove down to the beach two days ago to read it while basking in the warm sun by the ocean. An hour later, I felt a strong urge to leave. I drove my car to the only street that exits the waterfront and was greeted by a traffic flag-person who flashed a red STOP sign at me. She was highly animated as she repeatedly motioned to me to back my car up further and further from the exit road, which I did. I noted a huge barge on the water and several trucks parked along the beach front. Five to ten minutes later, the yellow tape across the road was removed after a truck came through, so I slowly began to accelerate forward to the street up ahead on my right. Whereupon the flag-person flashed the STOP sign at me again.

"What's going on?" I asked.

"It's impossible to get out since there's a house sitting on a platform in the middle of the exit road. They're slowly bringing it down the road to load it onto the barge," she said.

"How long will this take?" I asked.

"I don't know. But no-one can get by," she said.

I had important timelines to keep to that day. No signs had been posted informing the public that the road would be closed. The scene felt so much bigger than what was actually playing out. I felt an incredible upwelling of warrior energy surge through my being.

"I have an important appointment to keep, so I simply must get out!" I announced firmly in no uncertain terms.

The supervisor of the project was witnessing the exchange from across the road.

"Does she have to get out?" he shouted.

"YES!" I shouted back. By this time, the flag-person had backed away from me. I sensed she didn't want to take me on. Wise woman.

"I will take you through," the supervisor said.

He led me around the corner where a large, two-storey house was sitting on a platform with a truck parked beside it, blocking the entire street. He instructed the driver to move the truck so I could get through. I was on my way.

My day had begun quietly sitting contentedly in the sun reading Open's new book. An hour later, I was prepared to take on a whole army if need be. No-one's holding me captive in this crazy matrix, stop sign or no. Breakthrough I did!

Bottom Line: Don't mess with a fierce post-menopausal priestess! :)

Hey Cathy :-)

Interesting experience. What really stood out for me in your story was ... the house.

You said:
"there's a house sitting on a platform in the middle of the exit road. They're slowly bringing it down the road to load it onto the barge"

A floating house! What a splendid symbol of dissolving the attachments. It speaks to me of the courage to let go of the old foundation and becoming at home ... in the flow.

I'm inspired! Thank you, Cathy :-)


In reply to by Margaret

Hi M.

I'm happy my experience inspired you. I love your interpretation of the symbolic house: being at home in the flow. The house speaks to me about transcending attachment to the physical and emotional in the third dimension and coming home to the cosmic beings we truly are. Then, like the Charioteer in the Voyager tarot, we feel at home no matter where we are.

This book came at a perfect moment for me. I have these ups and downs where I get sucked back in my need for strive and perfection and this book helps me to let it all go. I'm so moved by it! <3

I agree with you Hannelore, Breakthrough was so engaging but I found I had to take my time reading it, pausing to process the reflections and feelings it was bringing up for me about my own life's journey. Looking at my own insecurities, doubts, and fears as well as highlighting revelations and breakthroughs. It was completely engaging, inspiring, emotional and transformative. I loved it and will be reading it again!

Couldn't put the book down but sometimes I just had to because of all the memories and processing involved. It tired me out. Each section brought memories to the surface where I resonated with what had happened to me, how I had felt, and dealt with similar situations. Thank you Open for the work.

People often ask me "how do I trust? how do I let go?" You can only truly do that by confronting the moment as it is and not trying to deny or deflect from it. We have to go deep into the feelings to be able to become as-One with them - The One in them. Here's an example in an excerpt from the Breakthrough Book...

    The passenger jet bumps down hard on the tarmac at Heathrow International Airport; it was landing through the dense, damp and cold fog, which was hanging in the air like thick veils, obscuring reality. Maybe it’s been like this since I left? I was wondering, but with a wry inner smile. Nothing was going to dampen my heightened mood, no matter how hard it tried.

    That said, on the way home, a nauseous knot began to gather, grow and tighten in my gut, with every mile closer. I knew I had to face the music. There was simply no avoiding it. How unfair is this! I thought. It seemed totally right in Las Vegas that I should feel the liberation of my soul, basking in the ever-present sunshine of the divine. We deserve this, it is our birthright, our destiny, how we’re supposed to live. But why do I have to pay for that? I found myself thinking.

    It’s not that you have to pay for it. You’ve willingly disconnected from it, to some degree. Your soul was tempted into identification with the drama – thinking it really needs something out there to make it whole and complete. But then you realise that’s not necessary, that if you just let go of the need for it to be a certain way, then your awesome freedom will create ever-new experiences to taste that bounteous divine union - the sense of rightness within. But you have to keep choosing that; you have to keep choosing the freedom, the natural flow of the moment; you have to keep finding and expressing yourself as you really are - then trust that the Universe will organise the rest.

    “How do I trust? How do I let go?”

    Confront and embrace the moment you’ve now created, exactly as it is, without needing to change it. Totally honour it.

    “What do you mean by honour?”

    I mean you have to willingly step in the direction that seems to cause the pain, and to fully express what you feel.


    It’s the only way. Your soul is meant to be liberated, a flowing experience from the presence of The One – the Source. It yearns for it. So if allowed to – if you don’t resist – it will willingly take you into the places where you identify with the illusion of reality, so you can learn to let go and be awesomely okay in it. The soul is forged in this crucible, to always stay liberated and free. It’s called ‘self-realisation’ – but it’s not given on a plate. You have to work for it.

    “How do I work?”

    Honour the pain by stepping willingly into that course of action which seems to create the pain and is clearly drawing you toward it – like going home now. Feel the tightness, wherever it is (like in your gut), then become as one with it by exploring intimately into every nuance of it. These are exactly the touch-points where the soul is identifying. Ask: “What do I think I need from this situation? What am I afraid will happen?” Imagine the worst possible outcome – feel deep into any tightness. Because The One in you isn’t afraid of anything.

    “What happens then?”

    In becoming as one with the pain, without needing it to go away, you become awesomely okay with it to be there and remain. You express it out into your world. Maybe shout or scream about it, move, adopt an expressive position. When you do this, you can break through and unleash the soul. From that place, you’re touching the infinite potential of the Source, because it’s where the soul originates from. And so now anything can happen. You’ll create miracles because you unleash through you a flow of universal rightness. You manifest destiny.

    I pull the car over into a lay-by. The pain is wanting to double me up, so I let it. I want to bang on the steering wheel, so I don’t stop myself. After a while, with my face red and flustered, my attention is guided to the CD folder. I quickly flick through it, but without really thinking, an obvious CD just jumps out. I instantly know the track I’m supposed to play...“In the air tonight” by Phil Collins:

    “I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
    And I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord.”
    (Lyrics by Phil Collins)

    The sound, the feeling, the sense of the way the words are sung, seem to speak directly into the heart of the pain and animate it. Within moments, it becomes so easy to forget that I’m in a car, pulled over in a lay-by, with the lights of other cars whizzing by. The windows are now all steamed up with my explosive animation, the headlights flickering in, as if I’m in some translucent haze. And it’s becoming deeply transcendent. To the extent that I almost begin to enjoy it.

    You’re beginning to accept the purpose of it, why you created it, that perhaps it is not such a bad thing after all. At least your pain lets you know you’re really alive again!

    Suddenly something clicks inside – like someone in there has thrown a switch. I realise I am completely okay with this - with the potential breakdown of my family and what that might cause. I’ve found myself naturally letting go, expanding out inside. It feels liberating. I can do this, I can take that course of action - the one I can literally feel wanting to happen.
    You’ve come home to the abode of The One again.

People all around the world are now reading Breakthrough and greatly benefiting from it. You can get your copy here...

Breakthrough: divine revelations



I'm so bowled over by the wonderful words of support and sentiment flowing toward the book. Thank you so much *give_rose*

And it's flying out like proverbial 'hot cakes' - we can barely keep up with the postal runs. So I guess it must have struck a chord out there in the field.

I do believe it can help many. When I was writing it - essentially editing the memoirs - it was key for me to relate the personal stories to the reader - to really regress the reader into the situations so that they'd feel it and be able to relate it to their lives. It seems this is indeed happening.



Yes, isn't this book just incredible??!!! I can't even count how many times I was sitting there saying, Geez! that's just how I have felt and realized wow! It's not just me and if one can breakthrough these limitations than all can. So it has ignited a deeper allowance of the doubts, fears, insecrities to be held within the space of the loving presence within. It has allowed me start to embrace who I am and not work so hard to be something else. It's not easy to be in the heat of it, but I feel a stronger sense of inner support to be in the heat and not need to escape it - nor need to get stuck in it, but to go deep and then release through it. Reading through a second time now and just feel indescribable gratitude. It's truly a work of heart =). Much love, Jen

I'm so excited Chris' journey is written in such a page-turning story. As Margaret said the average person on this path can perhaps see him/herself in the struggles experienced by we get lost but by not giving up-EVER-we can be found. There is such truth and wisdom on every page. I think it's brilliant to use the perspective of a conversation between Chris as he reviews his life and Presence. Again, a guide or model for how we operate in the world. Truly grateful and will certainly spread the word. Much love to Trinity for all the behind-the-scenes contribution and to the Team. Much Love always. xo

I'm kind of surprised there aren't more posts on here about the book.
Or maybe I'm not.
I'm on page 194. I feel it's the best book yet..
Amazing. Heroic. Wonderful. And courageous honesty.
I'm already telling everyone to read it.
Thank you Chris,
Thank you Open.

Guys, I feel so much gratitude to be included in this amazing journey. Cant wait for the book, Excited!

To me, "Breakthrough" is the most touching of all your books, Open. Thank you for sharing more of your consciousness with us. I can see my own transformation in yours as I'm reading the passages. The book is magic.

Trinity, this book would not be (the same) without your support. Thank you for your part in my journey.

With gratitude <3
