These articles and points of view, are all about activating seeds of awareness that may encourage you to live more accordingly to your higher self, and to shine that forth in the world around you for more successful, joyful, harmonious and fulfilled living ...



Breaking Free of the Box: How to overcome guilt from unreachable standards

Submitted by TeamOpenhand on Mon, 11/13/2017 - 16:38


Anyone on the path of self-realisation will likely agree with this - there comes a time when we have to step out of the box; I'm talking about our own, self-made limitations, which either hold us back, or impose unreachable standards on ourselves. It is the latter that I'd like the focus on in this article. Many of us, especially those in spiritual circles, may have an idea of what a spiritual or self-actualised person may be like. Perhaps you imagine that this person in compassionate and confident. Perhaps they are always at peace, never getting angry or upset...

Who Cares if One More Light Goes Out?

Submitted by Open on Wed, 10/11/2017 - 17:35

Here in the Openhand Team we've been facing a major uphill battle as we've migrated years of data up to a new website engine, which you can see here now. It's been several months of hard graft, and the last month of which, 4am starts 6 days a week. Phew! When we did eventually go live, it was only then that a raft of configuration issues presented themselves, severely restricting the new functionality. And on top of it all, as I took to travels for the North American installment of the 5D Shift tour today, our server crashed! As I was reflecting on it all at the airport, I found myself questioning: Why work so hard? Why always push to the limit?
It made me remember the reason I began this all back in 2004....

Stepping Bravely into the World You Don't Know

Submitted by Open on Mon, 10/09/2017 - 05:27

Day by day I can feel the higher dimensional flow strengthening. It's challenging the 'normality' of life - all the subtle interrelations we allow to bind us into invisible limitation. You look out into the world, your life, and the mind goes immediately to work, computing subtle judgements of expectations about how things should work, bound together with emotional anxiety about anything that would invite you to take a chance - to step beyond the bounds of the comfortable. In every moment we face a choice: we can either continue to accept this limitation as the comfortable cell we live in, or, open out through these painful contractions into the vulnerability of an open space. What will happen if we dare to do that?

Spiritual Warriors Moving Into the Eye of the Storm

Submitted by Open on Thu, 09/14/2017 - 07:14

Our hearts and meditations go out to everyone affected by the recent storms in the USA, the Carribean, and less spoken of - the millions set adrift by flooding in South Asia. We feel for you and send our love. How earth shattering it can be, to suddenly lose your home, your way of life and things that you might treasure. Yet for those who truly believe in a more expanded, equitable and divinely connected higher dimensional reality, then maybe we can explore such events as powerful mirrors, to begin to live the higher truth here and now; especially since the progressive transformation of our biosphere is going to increasingly affect us all. The spiritual warrior in us must now find the eye of the storm in this Great 5D Shift, and ride the waves that follow...

The Secret Music Hearers...Are You One?

Submitted by Open on Mon, 09/11/2017 - 12:43

I'm traveling again, on the World Tour of Openhand's 5D Shift Project. It's hectic: planes, trains and wall-to-wall busyness. But I don't mind. This is life and there are constant reminders to look through and transcend it all - countless mirrors and messages. When I'm traveling, I just love to have my ipod on shuffle - the lyrics and rhythms never fail to relate to the deeper meaning and message - they speak into the flow itself. Mostly people have got their heads in their own limited eddy currents, but every now and then, you'll catch that knowing smile or the unspoken glint in someone's eye. Yes - they're hearing the secret music too!...

Feeling lost and uncertain? There's nothing more powerful than "Show Me!"

Submitted by Open on Fri, 08/25/2017 - 06:56

At times everyone gets a little lost on the path, a degree unsure or uncertain of the way forwards - that's entirely fine. Life is a living, breathing, growing experience. In the moments of unresolution, lies the potential for a greater resolution - the Universe is working to reveal something to you. Therefore, whenever you might feel lost or uncertain, probably the most powerful statement you can make is "Show Me!" The Universe can't, and won't, fail to answer. Here's why that works and how to apply it in 3 steps...

Endings and Beginnings..3 Steps to Breathe Your New Authenticity to Life!

Submitted by Open on Mon, 08/21/2017 - 06:59

It's a solar eclipse today on August 21st - special numerology indeed. For me it represents a time of endings and beginnings. It's a question of continually dying to the past and being reborn in the present, to unleash vibrant new creativity in your life. This can happen in careers, relationships and general living circumstances. And of course it's not limited to a particular date in the calendar - I suggest it's something to practice regularly, inside oneself. Why is this important and how do you do it?...

Super Seed Energy Balls with hemp, pumpkin seed, flax and sunflower seeds

Submitted by Trinity on Wed, 08/16/2017 - 06:43

Move over nuts! Seeds are the holy grail of plant-foods. They're tiny, shy and little - easily over looked and ignored - or at best, used as a salad garnish. Most people prefer nuts (I guess because of their more seductive taste and bite-sizedness). But, let me shout from the hilltops my friends...

"Seeds are some of natures best superfoods".

In the true use of the term superfood, they are nutrient packed powerhouses, concentrated, with some of nature's finest sustenance.

Embracing Curiosity on the Spiritual Journey

Submitted by Fiona Reilly on Wed, 08/09/2017 - 07:21

Recently I have been valuing the simplicity of being curious. By being curious I mean actively engaging with our innate enthusiasm for wonder, discovery and learning. It includes seeing and appreciating the magic and miracles that continually surround us. Just consider how a young child engages with their surroundings and how absorbed they are in life and discovering more about themselves and the world in which they find themselves. Curiosity is a process of inquiry and a continuous exploration...

Growing World Fire...Let Souls Soar like the Pheonix

Submitted by Open on Fri, 07/28/2017 - 07:51

Yet again summer has been dry as a bone in much of Europe, igniting wild fires in France, Portugal and Spain, forcing thousands to flee, as in the popular holiday destination of Saint Tropez. And in California, record-breaking heat and fierce Santa Ana winds have caused thousands to flee their homes. As in many other places around the globe, the weather is becoming nothing short of biblical. As strange as it may at first sound, and whilst feeling deep love and empathy for those affected, how can spiritual people turn these drastic events into a positive?

What can we learn?

Overcoming Fear by Embracing Death: Unity Vs. Individuality

Submitted by Richard W on Wed, 07/26/2017 - 07:25

So far in this series of articles on overcoming fear, we've explored how each fear can be traced to a fear of death and also, how our 'web of identity' affects the way we approach our fear. Now, let's go deeper still into the caverns of who we are and look at the source pain behind our fear of death. Whether a final death or an every day challenge to our sense of self, it confronts our identity causing us to be afraid. Thus we often cling to certain traits/identities within us when others are challenged, especially our world view and belief system. It's been shown over and over again that when reminded of our fear of death, we react generously to those who reinforce our beliefs and harshly to those who call our beliefs into question.
