Working with Ascended Masters

The Team will be working to anchor and transmit the consciousness of the Benevolent Mission supporting the Shift into the Summit. It’s a range of supportive frequencies from the Star Being Nations who’ve gathered to assist in the planetary Ascension to 5D. We’ll be embodying those frequencies and anchoring the various groups in the ether for you to call upon and illuminate your own journey forwards. It will be a powerful, alchemical and uplifting experience.

World Ascension Summit Support from Openhand Facilitators

Avalon Rising is totally unique - a Summit that is both presentational, but also with assisted self-realisation, and dedicated Facilitator support. At various peak moments through the Summit, the participants will be directed into break-out rooms to get one-on-one support with processing and integration of the material covered. Each facilitator has been through an intensive training program, supported at international workshops and leading their own self-realisation services. You will be well backed up.

Special Guests: Headlining Lex van Someren

The aim of Avalon Rising is to help you expand your consciousness. And so we include carefully chosen transcendent guests. Lex van Someren is the headliner this year, whose deeply moving vocals help transcend the lower densities and set the soul soaring on outstretched wings. He’ll perform some of his most popular songs, but also involve you in transcendent chanting. Lex embodies a strong Metatron energy which is felt at a cellular level. We’re also blessed to have Gong Master Huzy performing once more, whose deeply soul stirring gong music helps the soul break free from lower density. Meanwhile Aspasia will be conducting a deep consciousness bodywork session to music, which guests have previously found enlightening and expansive. It will be a treat for the soul!

08/08/2023 Avalon Rising Update

It turned out to be a marvellous conclusion to Avalon Rising, the World Ascension Summit. What's your grandest dream of the soul for your future? What emerges from the depths of your core and speaks volumes into your world? Give expression to it, give voice to it, give wings to it. Then, if it's truly coming from the Soul, the Space-time-Continuum will bend around your expression and actualise into reality. Don't make dreams your aim, but where they touch the Soul, give space and breath to them. Then they'll sweep you aloft and carry you resplendently emergent through this incredible Shift.

Thankyou so much to everyone who participated and those who tuned in, from the four corners of the globe, and those in the dimensions who provided supportive insight. We are the Champions!! 😍🕺

Thank you so much to Open and the Openhand team for a brilliant and wonderful Avalon Rising. To have woven a four day event which was both so deep and transformative as well as enjoyable was no mean feat and as for Lex van Someren - he felt like the icing on the cake - just wow! It was the best one yet and I can't imagine how you are going to top it next year. Thank you one and all so much for what you so, it so very much appreciated🙏

I think it was the third day of the summit...I ran to grab my notes on the 7 rays from a folder and this poem fell out. When I read it later, it seemed to describe in beautiful poetic language exactly what I get from the Openhand work. It is sent with so much gratitude. Open, Tilly & Thomas along with all the gifted facilitators are an amazing team and I think I say this every time I attend an event...I am so so honoured and blessed to have you in my life. The summit was astounding and wonderful and supportive and I'm loving reconnecting each time with more and more beautiful souls from around the world. So comforting in this crazy world to be a member of this galactic tribe!

So much love



Once, I ran from fear
so fear controlled me.
Until I learned to hold fear like a newborn.
Listen to it, but not give in.
Honor it, but not worship it.
Fear could not stop me anymore.
I walked with courage into the storm.
I still have fear,
but it does not have me. 

Once, I was ashamed of who I was.
I invited shame into my heart.
I let it burn.
It told me, “I am only trying
to protect your vulnerability”.
I thanked shame dearly,
and stepped into life anyway,
unashamed, with shame as a lover. 

Once, I had great sadness
buried deep inside.
I invited it to come out and play.
I wept oceans. My tear ducts ran dry.
And I found joy right there.
Right at the core of my sorrow.
It was heartbreak that taught me how to love. 

Once, I had anxiety.
A mind that wouldn’t stop.
Thoughts that wouldn’t be silent.
So I stopped trying to silence them.
And I dropped out of the mind,
and into the Earth.
Into the mud.
Where I was held strong
like a tree, unshakeable, safe. 

Once, anger burned in the depths.
I called anger into the light of myself.
I felt its shocking power.
I let my heart pound and my blood boil.
Listened to it, finally.
And it screamed, “Respect yourself fiercely now!”.
“Speak your truth with passion!”.
“Say no when you mean no!”.
“Walk your path with courage!”.
“Let no one speak for you!”
Anger became an honest friend.
A truthful guide.
A beautiful wild child. 

Once, loneliness cut deep.
I tried to distract and numb myself.
Ran to people and places and things.
Even pretended I was “happy”.
But soon I could not run anymore.
And I tumbled into the heart of loneliness.
And I died and was reborn
into an exquisite solitude and stillness.
That connected me to all things.
So I was not lonely, but alone with All Life.
My heart One with all other hearts. 

Once, I ran from difficult feelings.
Now, they are my advisors, confidants, friends,
and they all have a home in me,
and they all belong and have dignity.
I am sensitive, soft, fragile,
my arms wrapped around all my inner children.
And in my sensitivity, power.
In my fragility, an unshakeable Presence. 

In the depths of my wounds,
in what I had named “darkness”,
I found a blazing Light
that guides me now in battle. 

I became a warrior
when I turned towards myself.
And started listening.

Wow, that is deeply moving Alex. It's such a treasure to hear, and feel, how people are moved when we work together like this. It's almost impossible to put into words the sense of gratitude and fulfillment. 🙏

And the poem. Well, what amazing illumination and realisation. I recommend all to read it and sit with it.

Much love and well wishes - thanks so much for sharing.

Open ♥️

In reply to by alxd


Wow, a deeply moving poem Alex, thanks so much.

Over and again it speaks of surrendering into our perceived challenges. It seems that the deeper and darker the challenge, the greater the expression of light that arises from it. After all, we only learn through relativism. 

And I died and was reborn
into an exquisite solitude and stillness.
That connected me to all things.

Those lines really resonated with me. Why not totally embrace 'ego death' and unfolding when that sublime exquisiteness of rebirth awaits? In this moment, these words are well received.


07/08/2023 Summit Update

What a stupendous day we experienced yesterday together at the Summit, which will be impossible to encapsulate in words. The key approach was to recognise how humanity has been purposefully entrapped in a world of doing, as opposed to being, and then coming from there. Hence there's a detachment from the natural soul frequencies. And so we worked to activate these and bring them alive.

Openhand has its way through meditation, journeying and expression. We work to activate these particular frequencies of the soul...

This is a game changer in life. Because in the quantum field, the time space continuum bends around what you are being. Where the Law of Attraction tends to draw the karmic shadow so as to be processed, the Law of Resonance draws, and crystallises the authentic reflection of you. This then manifests in the reflections all around. Life becomes increasingly harmonious and sublime.

In working with these, you could feel a marvellous activation within the group, that then rippled through the field. And with perfect timing and field orchestration, right at the conclusion of our final meditation, the marvellous Lex Van Someren appeared in the group and then began his livestream. It was the perfect embodiment of some of those frequencies. Although you really have to experience it live to get the energetic effect, I'll share the recording here. And for anyone who wants to expeirence it live, Lex is doing another livestream at the 8/8 Lion's Gate, for which I'll include a link...

What a blessing!

06/08/2023 Shift Update: Let it All Go

Yesterday was a massive karmic healing day at Avalon Rising. Humanity is ready now. We are ready, to confront the aeons of challenge and trauma that has been carried here by the tumultuous, explosive shift of Sirius 120 million years ago. This is where the original Annunaki rift began and the separation caused a disconnect from their compassionate side. It's why, through Earth's history, there's been negligible empathy for Original Humans. It's why people have suffered greatly, and also those who instigated the intervention.

We are here to heal from that now. To extract from it and ascend as 5D Humans. It's been a massive journey of remembering and regeneration. We're at the breakthrough of that now. But it's also about helping the protagonists in all of this. We are ALL actors, Avatars in a grand galactic game, playing itself out over time so that the light could progressively infuse the darkness. So it's about reclaiming sovereignty, healing, but then also forgiveness - we will have all strayed from the path on our journey.

It was deeply moving and heart-warming to feel that healing yesterday, to experience that deep forgiveness, so we may set the burden down. It's time to let it all go now.

I encourage all tuning in, and who are ready to complete that karmic healing process, to review my lead article about the healing of the Annunaki and how that's pivotal to the Planetary Shift right now...

Why Healing the Annunaki Rift is so Pivotal for the Planetary Shift

05/08/2023 Shift Update

It's been a marevllous start to Avalon Rising with the Rainbow Tribe tuning in from all around the planet - I can't count how many countries are represented!

What have we been working on during the first day?

Accelerating the Torus is the key to the regeneration of life here, both at a planetary and indiivudal level. To be clear, it's a more comprehensive view on what spirituality terms "kundalini". It's the flow of energy to and from the source within you. It's been retarded here on a massive scale - a systematic basis. 'Even human DNA has been, and is being, manipulated to interrupt this essential life flow. So it is the key.

At a planetary level, when the 4D technology started being removed by realigned benevolents in the summer of 2021, I knew that was going to have a highly beneficial impact. Here we are, a couple of year's later, and the earth's spin is accelerating - a great sign. Unless that is, you're still clinging to the old construct!

If you missed it, check the Openhand lead article: Gaia's Torus Accelerates

The Torus and Daily Life

To the degree that you're attached with old reality constructs in your life, is the degree to which you'll likely feel unsure and uncertain. You've got to let go of your firm grip on the shore and push off into centre stream - Meaning: to confront all the tethering that makes you do things in your life in pre-programmed ways. Especially relationhsips - because here are the major unconscious ties that are continually reinforced by the partner. It's high time to challenge those, at the risk that everything could end. This is what it takes to ensure they transform for the better.

Your Sacred Ground of Being

You sit in meditation. Maybe your body is aching and you feel distracted. No worries, you say, "it's only 30 minutes". Which gets you nowhere - you've already begun in avoidance. What we're talking about, whether for 5 minutes or 50, is to look inside at whatever is going on. If the mind is busy, no matter, breathe stronger and when you can, drop more into the feeling of the breath. Keep doing this till the feeling itself becomes your Sacred Ground - this is more who you are.

From here onward, the real journey can begin. Each time you quickly centre in this feeling of the Sacred Ground. Now from there, deepen and soften. As you hit progressively new layers, feel into them and become intimate with them. Keep on keeping on. What you're now doing is infusing the subtle flows of soul through the different layers of your being. You'll hit blockages which will then project out into your outer world - you're actually creating the circumstances, (infact you always were).

Why are You Creating what You Are?

Look into the circumstances - why are you creating them that way? How could you be more authentic? What's the attachment that's holding you in that old behaviour pattern? Now it's time to realise none of that serves you. Let go, Unwind. Be authentic. At whatever the apparent personal cost. Now you unwind within. And next time you sit to meditate, it feels more coherent. Deeper. You're now embodying more channels.

You may find your body wants to sway or has rhythmic pulsing through it. When you do the bow a few times and come up, you'll find waves start cascading through your body. Essentially, progressively, you're embodying the Torus. You're now becoming a conscious co-creator of the Shift itself.

We concluded our processing day with the Openhand Bow. If you're new to it, check it out here...

Historic Gathering at Seminal Moment in History

Avalon Rising is a Historic Galactic Gathering at a seminal moment in the history of our planet - no less than the unwinding shift into a higher paradigm, presided over, and supported by, our Star Being Nations in the ether, from across the cosmos. It's about the rebirth of Gaia and humanity into a more just, equitable and harmonious existence.

It is a turbulent ride to get there though, and it won't happen at the click of the finger. We have to do the inner work over plenty of annual cycles to actualise the new existence. Avalon Rising encapsulates the phenomenal experience Openhand has garnered over the years supporting people through their evolutionary shift. We're riding on the bow wave of an extraordinary infusion of energy and privileged to bring people along for the ride.

How might you join this alchemical and adventurous ride with us?

Daily Journal & Recordings Sent out Daily

All of the live tickets for the event are now sold out. However, we wouldn't want anyone to miss out on the developments through the Summit. So I'll be sharing free daily updates with meditations in this journal. But you can also still get the daily recordings from the event, which we send out during the conference the morning after each day. So you can actually witness what took place and still be a part of the energy.

Three types of recording tickets are still available:

See you along the Avalon Rising Flow.

All live tickets for Avalon Rising 23 are now sold out, but there are recording tickets available.

We will distribute recordings of a particular day the morning after and before the next day - so you can get a cost effective recording place and stay in tune with what's going on during the event...


A reminder that the magical Lex Van Someren is headlining at Avalon Rising 23 this year, Openhand's World Ascension Summit. I'm so looking forwards to his live performance. Here's a soothing track for you to enjoy...


It's clear from all that's happening in society right now, that a determined group of people - a bow wave - are breaking from the old karmic construct and forging the Merkabah. It will be our heavenly vehicle of Ascension. But most importantly, it will be the means by which we can successfully navigate the challenges of transformation in society.

That's exactly why we'll be focussing on developing your Merkabah at Avalon Rising, the World Ascension Summit, this year. Tickets are selling briskly and there are only 55 for the live event, so don't dally!

See you there.

10/05/2023 Shift Update: Ascension Timeline

You might ask, why embark on the Journey of Ascension? What's the urgency? Put quite simply, with the copious evidence in the video below, we're now entering a window of the Grand Galactic Convergence, where the commentator explains we probably have only 10-20 years left of viable 3D living on the planet. The more sensible question then would be, why wouldn't you?

The video explains the 12,000 year "disaster" cycle which repeats through Earth's history. But I prefer to see it in a different way:

Every karmic construct that is created, contains within it distortion. And at some point, either the balance of karma is processed, or the distortion becomes so great (or both), that in the best interests of all life, it's beneficial for there to be a great cleansing. I do believe we're definitely at that point now.

And for me, it's not disaster at all. The disaster would be for the old construct to perpetuate. This will be also a spectacular rebirth - the renewal of Gaia, just in a different vibrational state.

With this in mind I share the video. It's definitely NOT designed to propagate fear. But if fear or anxiety do come up, then it's important to go to work internally - where are the contractions? What are you afraid of? Where are you attaching? Remember, in a self-realised being, to which we're all heading, there is no fear. On the contrary, to those equalising with it and embracing it, the experience will become ecstatic as the density falls away from your being and your reality. It will feel like coming home.

And if the video causes you to want to dig deeper into the 5D Shift, then do explore the essential work of Openhand, and especially our World Ascension Summit in August (scroll up). It's perfectly crafted to help you journey through what's coming...

Bright blessings!

When we originally launched Avalon Rising, the World Ascension Summit three years ago, I wanted to create something special - a focused gathering of Rainbow Souls, both terrestrial and in the ether. I wanted to convene a convergence of ascending souls with the Star Being Nations supporting us, and to forge a bow wave for the Shift. As the next Summit approaches in August, I really like we've achieved that. Last year was so special (check the feedback below), but this year, I feel like we've made a quantum leap on the previous.

Do check out the video below then vist the new website. I do think it will stir the juices!

10/08/2022 Avalon Rising Journal Update

Well, when you think things couldn't get any better, the divine surprises us yet again. This marvellous crop circle appeared exactly on the 8/8 Lion's Gate Apex as we were concluding Avalon Rising. And, it appeared less than a mile away from a prominent Lion Monument on the same ridge. Awesome!...

Despite feeling completely shattered at the conclusion of a monumental Openhand year, I simply couldn't resist but drive over there last night to meditate in it. When I arrived there was a construction engineer filming with a drone over it, who just happened to have a prominant number 9 on his shirt, who captured a short clip of me in the circle (thanks team!!). It doesn't get any better...


I camped nearby last night and this morning caught the sunrise in the crop circle, which was totally magical. And is it just my imagination, or is that Andrasta's calling card that formed as a cloud over it whilst I was meditating!!...

What a way to round off this tremendous summer of high alchemy. Simply amazing 🧡

Here below is the full drone video that Stonehenge Dronescapes made. For anyone wondering if it's real and not manmade, Just look especially at the central circle, how the crops go in two different directions. And each outer circle actually spirals into the center with the crops careful folded and changing directions to create the spiral effect. Doug and Dave with boards and string? Don't make me laugh!! 😄

What do you see in it? I see the 5D Human. A perfect introduction to Openhand's upcoming 5D Human retreats, seminars and courses in the Ascension Academy. That is, after a couple of weeks well desreved (yes, accidentally misspelled on purpose) rest!!

Dear Open ,

I travelled and attended the last day from a place 6 hours away from my home city .The trip was about my friends and I establishing a community up in the mountains . An Island in the storm . 

Many synchronicities later and I am in a forest lodge,conversing with an erudite woman about the nature of matter ,where the world is going and how we are in the precipice of the next natural cycle. She says and I quote " I was holding space for the right people to walk in and here you are " . She owns 50 acres of pristine forest with a few cottages and has been holding fort here because she wants to build a self sufficient community . How she landed up here is a story that needs a book written . But it seems like we were welcomed by the feminine guardian of the forest that called this woman back after 40 years . 

A grand adventure seems to have commenced ! Let's see how it unfolds  .


In reply to by Open


Oh yes, this is a beauty!  The first time I looked I felt such a loving, graceful flow.  I could feel it flowing, spinning and moving. 

I shared during the Summit that the word Grace--gracious, graceful, elegance was flowing through, with such a strong feeling.  I sense that in this crop circle.  Beautiful, Grace-Full flow.  Isn't there a thing called The Elegant Universe?  Things look chaotic, harsh, even ugly down here at times, but this reminded me that from the higher perspective all is in a perfectly elegant flow.  And then this reminds me to allow that sense of "grace fullness" to flow through my being and every cell of my body and then out to my outer world. 

Then I saw it as Open mentioned, the 5D human.  I saw myself immersed in it, it immersed in me -- with the outer circles representing head, arms and legs, and the inner circle my heart and solar plexus.  And the wonderful connecting spirals flowing energy through my being.  What a delicious way to let myself lie down and just feel that as a meditation!  Like the snow angels we make!  

Truly a message of love and encouragement to us all!

Thank you and delicious divine love to all!



09/08/2022 Avalon Rising Conclusion

I'm sitting here the morning after the evening that was!! I don't know about you all, but personally, I was simply blown away by the Summit, the wonderful connections with you all, the inquiries, the depth, the love the warmth and the compassion. I'm simply blown away by it!!

It's one of those rare occasions for me where the words disappear. You are such beautiful vibrant rainbow souls - such a privilege and a pleasure to connect and spend time with. Know that you are held in the Openhand heart always ♥️🧡💙

(Apologies we didn't fit you all in the final screen!!)

I'll leave you with a song by the inimitable Jont, which for me, captured so well the energy of the gathering

"Let this be known
we've found our home
now it's up to us to find a way
to go through the door each and every day
and make this once found heaven our own"

In reply to by Open


And here's another superlative way of saying it. Yes, we can feature the passion of Metallica at an Openhand event!!

"So close, no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words, I don't just say
And nothing else matters
Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters"...



Openhand has done it again! ( collective noun as we are one and therefore I claim some of the credit!) Too bloody good, thats how I will describe these events. It's like the scene in black books, the enquiring shopper at the door complains he's come to buy a book. He gets one shoved in his hand. 'Is it good?' he asks with a wry smile. 'It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry, it'll change your life' comes the reply. The Avalon rising conference leaves me energized and feeling my authentic flow. That feeling of dancing freely with inner stillness...quite a joyful experience. Thank you endlessly Open, Tilly, Thomas et al. You are brilliant beyond compare and I shall be recomending you for celestial medals. It was lovely to see my crystal skull which Open has temporarily 'retrieved'. And I feel magnaminous in having my prize picture given away as I had spent so long with my hand up with the winning intriguing question that the answer came to me. So it was, after all, all about the question.....love, blessings and infinite gratitude. xxx


06/08/2022 Avalon Rising Update

How absolutely mavellous it was to convene the group of Rainbow Souls yesterday for a simply heart-melting connection at Avalon Rising. I can't tell you what a pleasure and a privilege it is to see everyone's shining faces beaming in from across the 4 corners of the globe - totally awesome!!

We began with an energetic review of the year, taking in all the major developments of the shift across the planet this last 12 months, since the last Lion's Gate opening. Some may recall that at the time of the last gathering, we'd been seeing lots of reflections in the crop-circles and stones about the opening of a "gateway" in the field, tremendous cogs of transformation wanting to turn. Like this one for example...

We explored how the shadow had been exposed through its machinations of the bogus pandemic. And that as Mars went into Scorpio last December, how the threads of that agenda were beginning to unravel. We saw it for example in the spectacular way the Boris Johnson government was drowning in its own duplicity - the Scorpion had stung the frog that was carrying it across the river, by expressing its inherent behaviour, before then sinking. Bye bye Boris!!..

You can read the full article about that here: Mars Energy and Transforming the Subconscious

How pivotal that moment was!!

We then got into unravelling the deepest layers of the quantum field itself, what we call the "Black Snake Energy". This was achieved spectacularly at the Mexico "Return of the Pleiadians" retreat, where we discovered how to peel back the layers of this intervention within ourselves, then to realign it through the Toroidal field. For all those tuning in, you can get a sense of it in this video we captured here...

Following that, we were greatly emboldened for our "Return to Atlantis" pilgrimage through Ancient Egypt. It enabled us to cut through the dense energies of the place and unleash channels of light. Most refreshing of all, we secured benevolent support and help from the original architects of the intervention that created that control situation - predominantly the Annunaki, who having now shifted in consciousness and evolved out, wish to be known by their new name the "Anu". This represents a tremendous watershed in the shift, since they are incredible field architects and so the unravelling of the 4D karmic field around the earth can now accelerate more quickly.

Check out the amazing adventures of the Egyptian Pilgrimage here...
Return to Atlantis

Keep breathing folks - so much has happened this last year!!

The work in Egypt paved the way for two marvellous DIVINICUS gatherings, where we accelerated the speed of the 5D to help unleash the fabric of the new 5D Human. Wow, what experiences both those retreats were. You can gain a snapshot of what transpired in this video here...

This all paved the way for the tremendous facilitator work amongst the stones and crop circles of Avebury once more. We've come full circle through the year. And this time, we've opened the field enough that our star brothers and sisters from across the cosmos can start to infuse the planet with their heavenly vibes. We were shown how a gathering was coming together in the field, a round table of Star Being Nations, announcing themselves, breaking through the karmic density of the 4D field to come and support the upliftment of humanity. This crop circle from Barbury Castle spoke into that most wonderfully...

Check out the enthralling adventure of this year's Avebury Facilitator Conference 2022

And so here we are: a tremendous gathering both here in the 3D, but also multi-dimensionally. It feels like a pivotal moment is upon us. One which we are determined to capitalise on as we go onto explore today the meaning and energy behind the opening of the 8/8 Lion's Gate Sirius Portal. It's going to be a ride for sure!!

Thanks to everyone for tuning in, and to those who've been involved in the work this year and made it so memorable. You are loved and cherished in this community dearly.

Till later - much more to follow

Open 💙🙏

Of course the key to great transformation, at a personal level and planetary wide, is being prepared to courageously venture into our density - what's holding you back? You absolutely know what that is when we illuminate our fears and reactivity to the moment. By exploring into this, you can unwind attachments and identifications with the old karmic construct we're living in. You forge soul through by applying something like the Openhand Breakthrough Approach, which worked so well yesterday at Avalon Rising when incportated with the Openhand Bow, which is an evolution from ancient Kriya Yoga.

I absolutely adore combining this yogic breathing practice with soul-stirring music, especially as you're unwinding out of the density. The songs always pick themselves, the divine is very definitely the DJ!! And so with great panache it picked this tremendous unravelling song for us. How we danced and swayed, how the joy palpably emerged through. Get a sense of it with us: close your eyes for a moment, feel what's been bothering or holding you back. Breathe, then as the music plays, let your body sway, move and release. Be uplifted!!...


04/08/2022 Openhand Journal Update

This year has been another phenomenal year - the energies keep escalating. This time I'm landing something new for the event: The 10 Guardian Nations of the New Earth. Sounds intriguing right? It's about those frequencies of being, held through different intergalactic nations, that will rightly become the custodians of the New Earth as it is reclaimed from the intervention and the shadowside.

How might we benefit from this?

Well, all of those various groups are already beginning to convene here. But rather than imposing any kind of new authority over the New Earth, as the natural Torus of Gaia reasserts herself, then she's drawing those frequencies to naturally harness, enhance and anhor here. Basically the Guardian Nations are as tuning forks, aligning the new way of being and living. I find it awesomely exciting.

These awarenesses have been progressively landing throughout this last academic year, this last cycle. But it was when the following crop circle appeared that everything started landing as some tremendous jigsaw puzzle beginning to connect together...

This is what the crop circle speaks of to me...

An intergalactic round table of different Star Being Nations, ten in all, convening on multiple planes of consciousness to become the custodians - the guardians - of the New Earth.

This is what I'll be expressing, sharing and anchoring at Avalon Rising. I will tend infuse it into Openhand's new academic year beginning in September.

These are phenomenal times to be alive here in the shift - we are blessed by the opportunity. Never allow anyone to tell you otherwise!

See you at Avalon Rising or in the upcoming new Openhand cycle.

Bright Blessings

Open 💙🙏


25/06/2022 Openhand Journal Update

I can't believe Avalon Rising, Openhand's World Ascension Summit, is just a few weeks away now. You may know that Openhand runs annual cycles of exploration and discovery within our Ascension Academy and that our Academic Year runs from September to August every year.

Avalon Rising is the peak, the culmination, the apex of the year, where we take everything discovered, learned and revealed from the previous year and integrate it to quantum leap our consciousness forwards ready to deepen the cycle again.

That's certainly the process of evolutionary Ascension on our journey and in our lives - you take what you've learned through life's situations and circumstances and then deepen through it, integrate through it. Now the landscape of life changes in the most positive of ways.

It's going to be an epic gathering for sure.

See you there Openhanders!!

Open 💙🙏


Avalon Rising takes place at the culmination of the crop circle season here in the UK and at the opening of the 8/8 Lion's Gate Sirius portal, which is a crucial alignment in the activation and processing of ancient human karma that was brought here to planet earth. The pandemic was certainly a manifestation of that. Last year the Summit took place when lockdown was still at its zenith. We'd been shown in the crop circles that our work was all about unlocking the field to unleash rippling flows of light.

This one appeared during the facilitator gathering in the build up to Avalon Rising...

And then actually on the 8th of August, at the apex of the Summit, this crop circle appeared, which seemed to show that the lock in the field had been unlocked and the energy starting to flow...

What will happen this year at Avalon Rising 22?
For sure the 6D grid is accelerating as we speak.
It's going to accelerate your ability to express your divine self through the 3rd eye (6th density).
I also get the feeling we're going to throw the door open and get the light pouring through.
There will be other shifts going on that are as yet unseen.
What could they be? There's only one way to find out....

It was a marvellous gathering at Avalon Rising last year. Here's a snapshot of what a few people said about it, just to whet the appetite!...

Thank you for your masterful and compassionate hosting. For offering a safe space where I can (where we all can) experience and meet what is showing up as wounds and as distortions of truth, for further inquiry and healing. Thank you for offering such powerful practices for discovery and the unraveling of conditioning and for how you invite, invite, invite - creating so much space for possibility, curiosity and expansion. I feel I can "hold the whole" and serve more skillfully, lovingly and gracefully as a result... Michelle

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the last four days. I cannot put into words the impact this work has on me, particularly yesterday when every thought and feeling I had was being confirmed. The internal shifts are becoming continual, I feel I’m not even the same person I was last week!... Jane

I felt the mix of meditations, your sharing's, break-out rooms, music and guests was spot on for me. I found it personally useful too, watching the facilitators working in their own unique way, but sharing the time equally without efforting and making sure everyone felt supported... Heather

11/08/21 Avalon Rising 21 Conclusion

The pinnacle of the work Openhand is bringing forwards is the activation and embodiment of the Spirit Light Body, leading to the hybrid state of what the ancients called the "Merkabah" - it's the interrelation of higher and lower self, embodied here and now during the shift. I call it a "hybrid" state because it places you in both current worlds: the old 3D paradigm that is unravelling and the new 5D one that the planet is unfolding into. It's what will prepare you for the ultimate climax as we shake off the bonds of the physical.

It has been simply amazing to witness this happening in participants at Avalon Rising 21 - we're receiving tremendous feedback about what people have been experiencing through the event. The feedback is still pouring in and is quite overwhelming. I felt to share just a snapshot to keep the energy rippling...

For me the pinnacle of the experience was the final day, actually just before the day's work began. I'd already realised the huge significance of the crop circle that appeared on the day before, exactly on the 8/8 Lion's Gate. I'd always felt this would be a summer of high alchemy, and leading up to the Facilitator Conference we'd been getting strong inferences about a "lock and key" - that we needed to unlock the energy field in some way. We were shown the crop circle below during the Facilitator Conference that seemed to point to that...

And so when this crop circle appeared exactly on the 8/8 Lion's Gate it felt like we had "opened the lock"...

Can you see the Merkabah represented in the middle? Fabulous!

But it goes even deeper than this and to me, speaks strongly into the current situation on the planet. As I explained to the group at Avalon Rising, just before the Facilitator Conference I'd had a lucid waking dream about the Berlin wall and how quickly it collapsed when it seemed so persistent. It seemed to speak into today's situation on the planet. Even though the military is been set up to control the situation in various countries, like in Sydney right now, it seems to me like it's a last grasp effort - they're losing control of the shift due to the wider awakening. Right now around 6 million people are regularly on the streets protesting against the draconian measures in France - this is sure to ripple outwards. I was contemplating this the moments before the final day of Avalon Rising began, and I asked the Openhand higher dimensional team for a track and video to play to introduce the day. This track was given, which certainly turned a key in my own heart. Check the symbology right at the end. See what it does for you...

It's time to open the lock and let the 5D genie out!

Much love to all

10/05/2021 Journal Update: Special Time in History

There is no doubt about it, we've organised Avalon Rising, the World Ascension Summit, to bring people together from across the planet at a very special point in history. The cogs in the shift are turning and gearing up. We're witnessing big shifts and changes on a weekly basis. The Shiva energy is building all time, which I witness in catalytic action around the planet - to be clear, it's steady though at this point, not explosive. It is powerful and bringing the sovereignty alive in more and more people.

8/8 Lion's Gate

The 8/8 Lion's Gate is a pivotal astrological convergence: as the star system Sirius rises on that day, Orion's Belt comes into alignment with the Giza pyramids; and it's called the Lion's Gate because it occurs when the sun is in Leo. Leo is also associated with the heart chakra - thus amplified by the fact that we'll be broadcasting from the heart chakra of the planet.

The Siruis/Orion/Giza convergence of course had tremendous significance to the ancient Egyptians and their worshipping of Isis (represented by Sirius) and Osiris (represented by Orion). It's a key fulcrum of ancient human karma and thus a means by which we can enhance realignment by infusing light through the convergence - we can work to resurrect our original humanity. And we can apply the convergence to repair botched DNA. This is a fundamental aspect of the earth shift and reclaiming humanity as the divine being DIVINICUS.

Understand more about Humanity's ancient Sirius Karma and how it effects us

At this pivotal point then, the Openhand work completes the cycle of its annual calendar, which then begins once more in September. So it has special significance all round. Plus I also feel we're in a window of opening, where we're working to peel back the density activated within the pandemic veils of the shadowstate. It could hardly be more alchemical!

Avalon Rising - Bring Your Friends

We've had a great response to the launch of Avalon Rising, thankyou, the energy is building wonderfully. 👍

We would like to reach out to as many new people as possible, so as to ripple the light ever further afield at this gateway point. That's why we introduced the special discount rate when bringing someone new. We very much welcome a broad gathering of kindred spirits.

See you there

Open 💙🙏

Hi Open,

As almost always, your post is very synchronistic for me. You've written about the ancient Egyptians, Isis and Osiris, whereas, last night I dreamt about meeting Anubis inside an ancient piramyd. This, among others, is just another confirmation of the quite demanding but uplifting initiation process that I have been going through in the last few weeks (a similar to what you wrote about in your aricle 'The Rite of Passage)' . What may also be interesting for others is that I strongly feel, this is now a time of initiation for all mankind.

Looking forward to seeing what is to unfold at the time of the Lion's Gate! <3 

wishing you all well,





Wow! What an amazing time. This was totally mind blowing, it went way beyond anything I’d expected. The work we did was deeply felt & transformational. The evening performances were just out of this world! 

I’m so glad I attended, it was brilliant. Thankyou so much to Open, who as always went way beyond limits. Also to Aspasia & the Facilitators for putting together a fabulous & great value Summit 🌟🦋🌟
