5D Shift: Just One Breath Away from the Next Big Breakthrough

Submitted by Open on Thu, 11/25/2021 - 04:19

When it gets challenging on the path, and you're in doubt, that's when to really get going. That's when the possibility is enormous. It's stunning just how many reasons, excuses and self-denials it's possible to find when you're approaching that moment of Breakthrough. But at this point, you can actually FEEL the density. It's the point of maximum opportunity. When it seems most difficult, and the layers resistant, that's when, by contrast, spectacular light becomes available on the inside.

Here's the opportunity right now for those who seize it.

The Red Pill or the Blue Pill?

Inertia is what to watch for. It's uncomfortable when you're peeling off a new layer. It's all too easy to take that soft comfort or distract from the tightness - whether you're intermittent fasting, spending more time in meditation or quietness, or forging a new direction in life, that's when you'll feel it - the resistance that wants to keep you small in the shell.

But you know all too well, you've taken the easy option before, and it never led to anywhere different or better - always the same limitation. That's when to take the pain and make it really count: feel into it, whether it's the niggling voice of doubt - "you'll never make it, you're not good enough"; or emotional weakness - "just take that little pill of comfort"; or boredom and loneliness - "how long do I have to do this for?"

The path isn't all sweetness and light - that's one of the greatest deceptions of the shadowside here. Yes, there's surrender, but often the truth is about surrendering through all the reasons why not. The pain is illusion, and you're always one breath away from breaking through. You see there's feeling the presence of self-realisation, which is totally awesome, BUT, that's only the beginning of the journey. The real crunch BEGINS at that point, with the resurrection of your multidimensional beingness. And it gets especially tough when times are difficult, the higher you go up the mountain.

In the Desert of the Real

I feel the shadowside is on the back foot. Plenty have seen through the veils of their ridiculous machinations and distractions. The great thing is that many are no longer fooled. The beast has revealed itself. We know what we're up against, where and how - it's anything that would distract you from your centre or try to put you in worry or fear.

This is a time of tremendous opportunity. When the beast was hidden, it was easy to go along with the show. Now you can no longer trust or rely on the powers that be. Have no doubt, day by day, they are losing their power and their authority. Those denser layers that were wrapped up inside our psyche can more easily be pulled apart. We can download energy from the divine to infuse and inspire our lives. Let's go for it!

Push on in, push on through, dig deep. When things get tough for me, I visualise myself in the desert, with nothing but an old shall, a staff, and a pocket with a small stone of truth - cutting back the illusion of reality and working to find the sweet purity of transcendence. Outside, when the 3D world is dank and bleak, good. The cars and trucks pass by oblivious to the light. Good. In the streets, the people are still invested in mobile phones. Okay, it's their choice. They reveal to me in glorious technicolour what I am not. And so I dig deeper, transcend further. They're all now a distant dream, disappearing into the horizon. And now I'm in the oasis, the feeling of light and completeness. I rue not the external - that was always their choice. This is mine.

DIVINICUS in the Desert: Openhand's Ground-Breaking Retreat Online

Forge in, Craft Soul, and Emerge Out

It's cold in the meditation studio at 4 am in the morning. Knees are still aching from yesterday. The back is uncomfortable and it would be oh-so lovely just to laze in bed a while longer. But I know where that path goes - always to the same place. It never delivered anything different. Neither did the soft comfort or denial. Always the same place. By contrast, in this quietened darkness, there's always limitless possibility.

The whole universe of feeling and perception is inside. What can you find this time? Beware though, the desert is full of those who tried but gave up - gave up one breath away from that big Breakthrough.

And as you sit, 23hrs into that daily fast, even though the body is screaming, the mind is itching and the emotions sobbing, that's exactly where you're crafting soul. Did anyone say it should always feel good? No, it doesn't. You're breaking soul through, your forging light in the inner crucible. Surrender, surrender, surrender. But don't confuse - that's NOT giving up. Surrender is having the courage to take the pain. It's recognising the old pathway never led anywhere - and if there's resistance in you, that can only be showing you what you are not - so why not breakthrough it? That's exactly where to go to work. You forge in, craft soul, and emerge out.

DIVINICUS: at The Lord of the Rings, Snowdonia Retreat

The Lotus Reveals itself in the Mud!

There's so much cosmic energy coming in right now that wants to be grounded in this plane - and so many of us are here to anchor it. Yet surrounding you are the naysayers and doubters, even family who think you're half crazy for daring to believe in something extra, something cosmic, something divine. Don't let their density dampen or bury your light. You don't need to convince or persuade them of anything. Their choice is their choice, and so is yours. Come up shining in spite of it all.

So if at times you feel alone or in a minority of one; if you feel at times like giving up, reflect on my words. Many times I have sat in this desert - countless times I have broken through. And this is exactly where you do it. The lotus reveals itself not from the sunshine, but from the mud. Your soul is taking you where you most fear to tread. But with each dive, with each breakthrough, you open another petal. And at some point, not even the densest of minds will be able to deny the beauty.

Losing is not an option.
Stopping is no solution.
There is only one outcome here,
there only ever was...
The lotus will break through and emerge out.

Warriors in the Heart

From the Lotus Flower to the Flower of Scotland, I'll leave you with this video from Stirling Castle in Scotland, exploring the legend of William Wallace, and how we might apply the sense of the Warrior in the Heart through the accelerating shift. It's inspiration to confront and break down inner density, to stand strong in your truth out in society, and anchoring the passion of higher light. It can be dense and confusing out there as humanity's karmic layers peel off. But as we dig deep, we can feel the truth in our hearts. We must then stand strong in it, no matter the push-back or attempts to suppress. We've got this, we can do it.

Time to dig deep my dear friends. And you will be ecstatically thankful that you did.

Bright Blessings

Open ♥️🙏

Hi Open,

Your video at Stirling Castle really spoke to me.  I have always felt that peaceful warrior spirit, but often when I spoke out in the past I was overtaken by fear and tightness, sometimes even losing my train of thought and ability to literally talk out loud. It was like I was being choked internally and blocked from thinking and feeling. I learned at an early age to play it small to avoid these unpleasant experiences.  I see how feeling into these energies can be the key to unlocking the key to liberate my souls ability to speak through me.  I would like to connect with the peaceful warrior spirit again. Thank you for the insight and the video.

Hi Folks - How are your daily shift practices that keep you emerging going?

Now, more than ever, it's essential to have those patterns and rhythms in focus. Whether it's your meditation practice, your diet, connection to nature, deep consciousness bodywork, clearing your personal space, reducing electrosmog, clearing intervention. These must all be a part of a daily integrated practice that is constantly developing, learning, evolving, and growing. People are seizing the day, stepping up to the challenge and really working it through - it's great to witness!

And...Expressing yourself. Putting your heartfelt feeling intention out there. Even if only in a few words, because it creates feedback loops with the universe and channels your energy through the outer density. Give it a whirl, place a comment below to my lead article above and watch the energy build. 👌

5D Shift: Always Just One Breath Away from the Next Breakthrough

A crucial thing to contemplate and work with is the Universal Torus. Why? Because quite succinctly it is the flower of life itself - it's what gets and keeps the energy moving and transforming. It comes through you as active kundalini. When you have blockages, resistances, and disharmony in any aspect of your outer life, then it's certain it's because of a blockage in how the Torus flows in you. So what do we need to work with in order to help unleash the Torus? Here are 5 points of focus to consider and work with...

1) A good solid breathing practice - that gets the energy moving through you - like Openhand's Breakthrough Breathing
2) Chakra opening and attuning - is necessary so as to keep the energy moving through the various inner layers and inter-dimensionally... Chakra opening and attunement meditation
3) Dealing with karmic density -You'll immediately start to stir up karmic density with the first two practices. So you'll need to consider how you breakthrough and unravel karma... explore daily karmic processing
4) Entities and implants - will also come active as you move energy through the layers. So if you feel this happening inside, if you feel dense, down or stuck in patterns, then it's quite likely there'll be some kind of this limitation that's bleeding energy within. So make sure you have a good means of removing them... here's Openhand's approach to removing implants and entities
5) Bring in higher dimensional benevolence - and the angelic realm - form a heart-felt connection into the benevolent support around us in the ether. Invite their help to keep the energy moving and to channel away density - you must be doing the work in your own field, but you can certainly call on them to lend a hand!

Once you've got the Torus in place in your life, then it makes it easier to call in the higher dimensionals to support creative animation in all aspects of your life. With that in mind, take some quality time out to watch this episode of the 5D Shift Podcast, which is all about gaining greater Star Being collaboration in our lives. It's designed to inform, uplift and inspire...

Bright Blessings Everyone

By reading this main article I got a flash back into my "dark" months a good year ago, when sitting and surrendering in the "mud" this quote came to me from I do not remember where: "Just like the Lotus we too have the ability to rise from the mud, bloom out of the darkness and radiate into the world". And I was painting my all heaviness of the heart and pain of the existence, I was painting this into the various styles of Lotus flowers, until the light started breaking through the black clouds.

Here I share one of those paintings in watercolour which helped me to express out onto the paper and release the karmic pain.

This speaks to me deeply. Some of us still can't do it alone, still need someone to help light the way. Knowing that you struggle too helps immensely in feeling less alone. Your courage gives me courage. And mostly, you not giving up on ones who want to give up every day makes me want to hang on. Knowing that pain is part of it helps to accept it and see it as a great tool and gauge for where I'm stuck. Wonderful and important post, can't thank you enough for your unfailing support and encouragement. Maybe AA Raphael could help you with those knees? Best wishes🙏❤️



​Hi Open, thanks for your wise words.

What do you mean by "deep consciousness bodywork"?

Also, even though I've deepened my meditation a lot in the past weeks, there's some aspect I'm struggling with that I'd like to share. It's difficult to put into words but here we go!

I work composing and mixing music. My "default mode" for many years has been very rational and analytical, creating inner struggle and making me spend too much time finishing a song. That's because today we have endless tools and plugins that open up infinite possibilities to manipulate sound, so my mind is never satisfied.

But recently I've been consciously trying to FEEL more during work, and it's amazing how the choices become so clear and there is no attachment. However, to sustain that "feeling mode" I really really really have to do it consciously, and if I'm not attentive my rigid mind appears again and limits my choices. And then I surrender, meditate again... but as the day goes on, it gets increasingly difficult to sustain the feeling while working.

The gap between rational and feeling "modes" is enormous. In the first one I can't finish any song, in the latter it's plain easy. I wonder if this is normal... Will I ever be able to feel effortlessly? Why the feeling vanishes away, what causes it? How can I better integrate this new way of being? Any thoughts and suggestions from anyone are highly appreciated.

Thank you Praying Emoji

Hi Edu - greetings and welcome to Openhand Praying Emoji

By "Deep Consciousness Bodywork" I mean a practice that brings your awareness deep into the body - like yoga for example, or here at Openhand we have our own practice called "soulmotion". I suspect that something like this might help you break the hold of the mind in your creative endeavours.

Two other things spring to mind: 1) when you're working, to take frequent pauses and reflect on other things - greenery in the garden for example, the sound of the birds or the feeling of the breath; 2) Practice holding a periphery vision - meaning that even when you're focussed on what you're doing, work to have a percentage of awareness attuned to other things around you.

Ultimately the key will be to be centred more in the feelings and coming from there, using the mind as a willing tool.

Best wishes

Open 🙏


Hey O,

I'm  so glad you enjoyed the vid. The lights are so magical and envoke such deep feelings for me. Its like being washed over with light.

Thankyou for all you share its is very encouraging and I appreciate it heaps.

Much love

Erin 💚🐎🌳


Thank you so much Open for the inspiring words. 

A few years ago we met at your seminar in NZ which now seems like a lifetime ago.  NZ is going through some very challenging times at the moment and most kiwis are deep in the trenches. Your words still give me hope in these dark hours.




Beautiful 🙏🏻🙏🏻


Sound is the most powerful tool of creation and transformation, everything in existence was created through the sound. It has the power to transform even the worst negativity in to something beautiful. And creating with pure intent results in perfection, you can feel that there's nothing more to do, transformation is complete. 





Mud is good for the skin, mud is messy, mud is dense.  I'm in the mud a lot, so to speak.  It's been tough and I'm always checking in here and it's always uplifting.  Gotta keep slogging through the mud.  Your sharing keeps me moving on ahead.  Thank you.  Praying EmojiHeart



Woke up in the middle of the night with this song in my head, very appropriate. Billions of jabz already used, in their words this would be high body count, KIA, WIA. It looks like they finally get their Ww3. Good news is that it is the last one.

From a higher perspective - yes, some people are dying, but it was already in their soul contract. Yes, times are awful, but benevolent knew this is coming and they didn't stop it, it fits in the bigger picture. It was awful for thousands of years, history just keep on repeating itself and people keep on forgetting. Sistem want us not just to be their slaves, we must be positive slaves, forget all the bad. Exposing negativity is forbidden, all whistle blowers are labelled as negatives by exactly the ones that are acting negative. Manipulation is everywhere, you can't control billions of people directly, manipulation is just another form of violence. 

The biggest casualty will be the system itself, it's already crumbling, but it won't be nice. 

So, what to do in this situation? I don't really have an answer, I guess nobody have it in the 3d mind. But the ones from higher realms are here with helping hand, so keeping high frequency and staying connected is the way. That's exactly what Openhand approach is suggesting and the time is now, in 2022 old ways won't work anymore. 



Thankyou so much Open, the timing of this encouraging article is exquisite. 

It's such a struggle to stay in the mud and forge through petal by petal! 

Your personal sharing really helps me hang in there! And the struggles of Bruce! 

And funnily enough there is plenty of mud round here at the moment as there has been days and days of rain! The frogs are serenading me in the downpipes and my feet are enjoying squishing in the mud connecting to mother earth. Its a great reminder of the journey of the lotus to bloom in its beauty! 

Also lots of scotch thistles coming up which are reiminders too! 


Much love

Erin 💚🌳🐎

I’m sharing a story with you that I heard from a talk by Dr. Wayne Dyer years ago:

Chapter One

I walk down the street. There’s a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost. I am helpless. It’s not my fault. I still take forever to find a way up.

Chapter Two

I walk down the same street. There’s a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in again; I can’t believe I’m in the same place! It isn’t my fault, but it still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter Three

I walk down the same street. There’s a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it there and I still fall in! It’s a habit. My eyes are open. I know where I am. It’s my fault. I get out immediately.

Chapter Four

I walk down the same street. There’s a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.

Chapter Five

I walk down a different street. ✨

With love,
