What is the 5D Shift?

We stand at the dawn of a miraculous new evolution for mankind. The Earth is undergoing a monumental shift of consciousness into the 5th Density and everyone is being invited to join in. But there's much confusion about what that Great Shift means. What is really happening and how will it affect you?

Most importantly, how can you ride the changes successfully and unfold into the higher 5D paradigm?

Openhand has been passionately working in this field for some considerable time, helping people all across the world through evolutionary change. These articles on the 5D Shift are designed to stimulate your own inner realisations about the phenomenon...

The Influence of the Solar Logos on our Ascension

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/06/2014 - 12:03

Anyone whose read Divinicus by now, will know the significance I feel of the "Solar Logos" - the soul of our Sun - and its anticipated impact on the changing biosphere of our planet. Of course Earth is intricately connected to the Sun, not just as a ball of rock and dust orbiting it by some perverse 'gravitational pull'. These are cosmic deities, drawn to each other by the universal Law of Attraction, just as you were to your father; there's an intimate interrelation - a heavenly dance taking place. So what's the significance of the recent solar storms, growing at a time when Gaia's magnetic field is dwindling?...

The Great Realignment (part 3): Message in a Bottle

Submitted by Open on Wed, 02/12/2014 - 16:52

I recently wrote about The Great Realignment that I see taking place now across our planet. It's about recognising the reharmonising force of nature that gathers when unjust, inequitable systems of consciousness are resisting the flow - like society has been doing for thousands of years. Some people asked "How can we best work with that realigning energy as it breaks the old consciousness down?" It's a vitally important question. If we can understand this universal breaking down process, then we'll understand a crucial aspects of our soul: that of true surrender, coupled with determination and will...

The Great Realignment (part 2): Gaia's Dramatic Healing

Submitted by Open on Tue, 02/04/2014 - 07:25

In The Great Realignment (part 1), I spoke of how the balance of life on Earth has become so far out of harmony with nature, that a corrective force of monumental proportions was now gathering in strength to shatter the structures that have so consumed and controlled other sentient life. As the underlying energetic matrix is unraveling, the departing clouds will reveal the New Paradigm, in a higher vibrational existence. However, we can expect it to be neither pretty nor easy. Our planet is entering the crucible of profound catalytic healing. The fire-walk of spiritual mastery is now unfolding before us and we must surrender into it to truly thrive...

The Great Realignment (part 1): The New Paradigm

Submitted by Open on Tue, 12/10/2013 - 17:58

There's plenty of talk in spiritual circles currently about the "New Paradigm": what that is; how to access it; how is it going to unfold? The views are often strongly contrasting. I sense it's because there's understandably still a lot of fear and desire - desire of a particular reality or fear of another. When we completely let go, then we'll truly feel the real juice of life, and especially how it wants to flow. "Realignment" is what inspires the actions emanating from the core of the soul - realignment for all life. In other words, unraveling density and allowing the divine to take over. Now is the time to embrace this driving force of life, because a "Great Realignment" is gathering strength here on Earth...

Discovering the 'Ray 4 Diplomat' of Your Soul-Ray-Harmonic: A Bridge between Worlds

Submitted by Open on Sun, 11/10/2013 - 13:25

A New Paradigm is opening up all around us. But it can be extremely hard to balance the connection to this 'new world' with living day-to-day in society. It can sometimes feel like it's one or the other. Integrating one into the other can seem a nigh on impossibility, but it is not. Here's where the tactile, empathic nature of the soul - the 'diplomat' - comes into it's own: intuiting and feeling the flow of 'rightness' in any given situation, yet blending it into this material world for maximum realigning impact. You can live your truth, honour the alternative truth of another, yet not compromise your soul.

A tall order? Yes indeed. But it is definitely possible.
Mastering this "Ray 4" Diplomat in you is certainly a path to mastery.

Ten vital areas of Inner Purification in the 5D Shift

Submitted by Open on Tue, 06/25/2013 - 05:18

In our recent video diary Transformation of Humanity, we spoke of the pressing need for people everywhere to reclaim their spiritual power in order to transform society into a new paradigm: to prevent immanent, wholesale, takeover by the industrial military complex, fueled by a behind-the-scenes Opposing Consciousness. We spoke of the need for Non-compliance with the unjust ways of the old fear based reality. Non compliance flows hand in hand with inner purification. So if we become intently committed to the spiritual path, we'll find ourselves cleansing the old consciousness inwardly, which then in itself unravels the outer threads of the matrix...

Unwinding Inner Identities as an 'Engine' for Enlightenment

Submitted by Open on Mon, 06/10/2013 - 09:54

Due to disruptive nature of society, it's probably the case that with most, the lower self is separated from higher spiritual awareness at a pretty early age. Whether it be the programmed and conditioning behaviours of our parents, excito-toxins in our food or the electro-smog of modern day gadgetry, effectively the soul is fragmented into the bodymind and a barrier inserted to higher dimensional beingness. Our divine birth right is truncated. Most hardly notice the downgrading effect. That is until one day, we're reunited with multi-dimensionality, realise the profound blessing and embark on a path of realignment, reunification and at-one-ment with the divine. How might we best catalyse this reharmonisation?...

The Immeasurable Importance of Deep Consciousness Bodywork for Ascension

Submitted by Open on Thu, 05/02/2013 - 05:49

When we embark on the mystical path of Ascension, we're essentially performing inner alchemy. Everything is consciousness, even matter and energy. They're all formed from 'elementals' of awareness. Even when people are awake to the interconnectivity of their soul, there's still varying degrees of insensitivity and identification with the physical. In other words the subtlety of the soul is getting dissipated - drowned out - within the density of Separation Consciousness. One invaluable way of dissolving this identification and catalysing our spiritual evolution - our Ascension - is through Deep Consciousness Bodywork...

DIVINICUS - the next evolution of Humanity

Submitted by Open on Thu, 12/27/2012 - 06:55

These are monumental times we're blessed to be living in. Humanity is waking up from aeons of amnesia. Gaia has centred her consciousness in the Fifth Density, and powerful evolutionary transitions will unleash the earth from the restrictive and exploitative karmic energies of our past. To many, the full magnitude of what's taking place will be challenging to grasp. It's entirely understandable. The key is to keep walking the path of the soul, allowing our natural Ascension to peel away the obscurring veils. The birth of a new multidimensional humanity is beginning to unfold, one which I am given to call "Divinicus".

Gaia's Cosmic Karma, Self-Realisation and Ascension

Submitted by Open on Sun, 12/23/2012 - 04:46

Right now, it looks like Gaia is brewing a storm. I feel aeons of suppressed energy bubbling below the surface and beginning to break free. I've seen this coming. During a car crash in 2002, I witnessed a series of spectacular visions. I saw the collapse of the old world consciousness, a cleansing of the Earth's surface and the Ascension of Mother Earth. In effect, I saw Gaia processing her 'cosmic karma'. Since then, deep communion with Gaia has clearly shown me that throughout our recent history, her Kundalini energy has been progressively suppressed, almost to the point of destruction. But now I feel her energy beginning to rise again - shifting into the higher paradigm. Here's how we can all take part:

Let Your Personal rEVOLUTION begin!....10 practical steps

Submitted by Open on Sat, 01/28/2012 - 23:05

Practically everyone's saying it: what's needed on our planet right now is a revolution in consciousness. We need to transform ourselves and reclaim personal sovereignty by making constant conscious choices. In so doing, we transform our lives and uplift the world around us. These are deeply motivational times: we've realised the power to transform our very existence lies within. So what measures can evolving people take? Well to me, evolution is the key AND that does lead to practical choices to change our reality from the inside out. Here are 10 steps we could all take, which in my view, would begin to have a profound and positively growing impact in the group consciousness.
