Plenty of people find themselves in situations in their lives and want to change but don't know how?

The problem is that society conditions people to constantly fix on controlling or intentionally creating circumstances in the outer. People effort and struggle to work for and get some kind of external gratification to feel fulfilled. Be it a relationship, material things or physical situation. When you think about it, for most people in society, most of the time is spent attending to and attaining short term goals - I have to go hear and there to attain this or that.

What humanity has forgotten, or doesn't yet realise, is that we're all woven within a space-time-continuum of consciousness, which far from being static and rigid, is fluid and flowing. As you work to soften through your own internal fixations, addictions and cravings in the moment, the need for a particular outcome, then you soften the identity and the fixedness in time and space. You open internally and start to feel the subtle perceptions of the soul.

Now this might feel pretty good at times - expanded, light, interconnected, joyful, but even then, plenty still don't join the dots: that these subtle vibrations and perceptions are instrumental in creating aligned reality.

I recall a situation once where my life was quite blocked. There was an internal battle between two aspects of consciousness which essentially kept me locked in the same place, "should I stay or should I go?" I asked the Universe for some reflective help, "show me!" There appeared to be no immediate answer. I needed to open up some more (if you don't appear to be getting guidance and all is quiet, the answer is, "go deeper!").

A while later I started seeing a particular make of vehicle. It was quite a rare 4x4, always in white, and always with the same painted landscape on the side. I started seeing it everywhere I went, and so wondered if I was meant to buy it. However I didn't have the funds at the time.

Then I realised it was all about what energy the vehicle was reflecting to me. It felt like adventure, excitement, sponatneity and travel. And when ever I saw it, I felt that energy beginning to bubble up inside. I realised what was being invited was to embody that energy as and when it wanted to activate - a new sense of energy, a new vibration of soul consciousness.

So I embodied more of this vibration whenever I felt the stirrings of it by putting my attention on it and animating it through me - sometimes to music for example, sometimes a short trip out, sometimes brisk walking in new nature locations.

A little while later when I was leaving my location to do a course out on the island of La Palma, and realised I wasn't just going for the course, I was going there to live! I just knew inside that this was what I was supposed to do. So despite the challenges of leaving the old situation, I knew that in following the soul, it would serve the highest good of all involved. The synchronicities reflected it was simply right. And so I surrendered to the feeling and went with it. From that moment, everything unlocked and the flow greatly strengthened.

This can either result in big changes like mine, or else different perceptions and ways of seeing the same circumstance - you transform the same situation by being different in it. Always though, what you're looking for is some new aspect of beingness to come through - to embody that and let it express in those circumstances where previously you felt blocked.

That's what we've been working on here on Bruges. Having opened an internal space through the densities that were blocking people, we're using reflection, meditation and animation to music so as to bring new aspects of beingness alive. One meditation we've been applying is the Liquid Gold Meditation, which you can listen to for free here...

Then what you're looking for, is a new gift of beingness to come through. These will be senses and subtle perceptions of soul, which then want to grow. Here is a framework for inquiry to find those new apsects. What at Openhand we call The Seven Rays...


Ray 1: purposeful creative will Ray 1 is the driving sense of purpose to create. It is the manifestation of the divine masculine principle throughout the universe. From the place of separation, it is that undeniable inner will to find and create a higher level of harmony both within ourselves and between all sentient beings. It causes us to challenge and break apart the status quo which may be holding us in a lower level of realisation. The Ray 1 inspires life’s motivational leaders.

Ray 2: surrendering unconditional love Ray 2 initiates the impulse of unconditional love for life. It is the manifestation of the divinely feminine principle of surrendered acceptance throughout the universe. It is the empathising compassion that willingly embraces, does not judge nor need to change the inherent imperfection in all sentient life and situations. Ray 2 strongly inspires the selfless servants of life.

Ray 3: interpreting authentic reality Ray 3 harnesses and processes higher abstract wisdom delivering it in a form to provide a clear interpretation of our current, authentic reality. In other words, it’s how we know what’s really real. People with strong Ray 3 influence notice the natural patterning in life bringing the formless into form in such a way that can be understood and appreciated by many. Ray 3 inspires life’s translators, creative artists and mathematicians.

Ray 4: harmonising through right resolution Ray 4 is the divine rationalising energy which helps us find right resolution with our environment and other sentient life. It is the ray impulse which blends passion with compassion. It provides the discernment to confront unjust situations in a non judgmental way. Its purpose is to break apart the lower harmony to find a more equitable higher one. People with highly active Ray 4 tend to be life’s diplomats, politicians and teachers.

Ray 5: realising abstract higher wisdom The Ray 5 enables us to hold the infinite complexities of the universe as pure knowing within our beingness. This ‘science’ is abstract, all encompassing and rather than realised, is more sensed, as an art form, like poetry in perpetual motion. Ray 5 enables us to attune to the universal flow and harness it for co-creative exploration, deeper understanding and further evolution. The Ray 5 animates life’s scientists and creative business leaders.

Ray 6: yearning self expression Ray 6 inspires us stay continually focussed on our life’s purpose: to realise, unfold and express who we really are. It generates commitment and devotion to our cause, radiating our soul in all its brilliant colour. The Ray 6 provides the unquenchable driving force to express our innate qualities and inspire others to shine their inner light too. Humanity’s philosophers, spiritual leaders and performing artists are all driven by the Ray 6 influence.

Ray 7: shaping synchronistic magic Ray 7 provides the ingredient of pure magic on our life’s journey. If we are able to master our inner distortions and pause just long enough in the drama of life, then we can open up to spontaneous, synchronistic and co-creative magic. Thereby we catalyse and initiate the surrounding field for the maximum benefit and upliftment of all. In this way, Ray 7 inspires life’s ‘magicians’ and entrepreneurs.

So for those joining in to our Bruges Retreat through the ether, I invite you to contemplate these and see how some of them might be wanting to come more active in your life. Do feel free to ask if you'd like a reflection.
