How Climate Change is Shrinking Habitable Earth...A Spiritual Response

Submitted by Open on Tue, 11/27/2018 - 04:20

Here's a great video exploration from "Democracy Now" on how abrupt climate change is shrinking habitable earth and the tremendous acceleration of that. It's essential evolving people are informed of what's really going on, where there's still so much avoidance, denial or deferral. At Openhand we advocate 'turning right into' the inconvenient truth of dramatic biosphere change and the threat to our very physical existence. What does that activate within? Work through any fear and contracting tightness. That's the pathway to your immortal spiritual self and the shift into 5D consciousness...

Inquire deep into your feelings about the impact of abrupt climate change

If you'd like to inquire deeper into your own psyche about what's unfolding around us, check out the video and then feel free to offer any questions and explorations in commentary below...

I'd advocate the Openhand Breakthrough Approach as a means to expanding out of any contracting tightness...

So here is the Openhand Breakthrough Process, which is really a framework that if you resonate with, you may explore, adapt and apply to your own inner processing. Remember, it's all about bringing increased awareness to the situation - the only thing that can truly change anything...

1) Confront the Truth of the Situation: what's going on here? What is truly being invited? What am I resisting? What outcome do I think I really need? What's the worst possible outcome and how do I really feel about that?

2) Honour and express the tightness: in allowing youself to explore the truth about any given situation, you'll expose some form of tightness within. It could reveal as a busy mind, unsettled emotions, nausea in the solar plexus, tightness somewhere in the body. And even a complete numbness can be classed as 'tightness'. The point is to delve deep, then to honour what comes up. Allow yourself to fully express the tightness, in whatever way your natural guidance invites of you. It's like you blow this inner layer up to fill the world around you for a while. It enables you to see where you were holding on, where you felt you needed some form of outcome, what couldn't you accept? Where have you been in avoidance?

3) Become as-one with your feelings: When you're at the height of the expression, now soften into the feelings, surrender into them, quieten and let go. Become so accepting of the cirucmstances you don't need them to go away. Hold the feelings within - be witnessing and observant. You're becoming as-one with the experiences. When you've reached this level of surrender, then 'open a doorway' of complete acceptance through the tightness. Remind yourself that you are NOT the exprience itself and that all experiences are transient. They come and go. Thus you're becoming The One in the experience - that which you truly are.

4) Unwind soul out of the constriction: once you've become so accepting that you've found The One amidst the tightness, contraction and pain, you're already at the point where you're healing; you're already digging up the roots of the constriction. Let go even more at this point. But then keenly watch the new energies of soul wanting to come through. You're reclaiming nuggets of soul gold that were originally stuck in the drama and creating the tightness itself. Let that now unwind, unleash and freely express new aspects of soul. Now the flow takes off for you, and the newly liberated soul creates in unimaginable ways. Yihah!

Hi Open,

Yes, I can see how the majority of people are not ready to acknowledge where the world is heading, but rather stay in their imaginary comfort zones. And even if people acknowledge, most of their actions in response are merely window dressing from those comfort zones.

When watching the video you posted of the family driving through the California fires, I become aware of the part of me that is terrified of particularly the physical suffering that is awaiting us. Yet at the same time, there is another part of me that is absolutely impatient for the shit to really start hitting the fan, because hopefully at that point there will be no more room for people to deny or stick their head in the sand!

I am not sure how this exactly relates, but yesterday I was drawn to this Dutch documentary series and picked one episode to watch, titled ‘Becoming Immortal’, about people who are obsessed with the idea of immortality. I have to say I was completely baffled watching it, to find out that there is a company in the US where you can have your dead body (or your pet's!) frozen for $200.000 (or $80.000 if it is just your head) in the hope that one day they will be revived again! Watching the people in the documentary really left me thinking about perspectives and truths and how different they can be. A theme of inquiry that seems to be coming up for me lately is about ‘prejudices’ and how I often quickly form judgements about people, without necessarily even being aware of it. Also in the case of this documentary I have a lot of judgements about a lot of the people that feature in there being crazy, yet who am I to judge that there is something wrong with their truth or perspectives on life?

There is a fully English version of the documentary available on Youtube here and I would recommend you all to watch it, I am sure it is going to stir lots of things inside!



Anastasia you said...

So am I ready? Am I prepared for what’s to come? I know it’s one of the main reasons I’m here. I know my soul is working with fervent urgency to raise my consciousness fast enough that I may be a force to reckon with when the time comes.

Yes, absolutely! It's exactly why we're here. And the best we can do for all is rapidly work into and drop the fear.

Whatever the situation, there is nothing like destiny being fulfilled.

I'd trade just one day of truth for a zillion of illusion. It's time to summon the braveheart of the (peaceful) warrior...


Hi everyone,

On my flight back from Köln, I was resting in a sort of half asleep/ half meditative state. Suddenly, the walls of the plane started shaking violently. Turbulence. Without completely awakening I remember calmly thinking ‘It’s happening. Am I ready? Yes, I am. This time I’m keeping my eye on God. If we go down, we go down. Come what may.’

Back home, some time later - a dream.

I’m high up in an elevator with 2 other people. There are 3 of us. Suddenly, the walls start shaking violently. It feels exactly the same way as it did in the airplane. Again, the thought, ‘It’s happening. We’re going down.’ And this time we do. The 3 of us crouch down and hold each other as the elevator free falls. There is no fear, only acceptance. However, nothing happens. The elevator doesn’t crash, it just lands. We’re all ok, but when we walk out of the elevator (where we originally entered) the surroundings look slightly different. And after looking around a bit, I look back towards the elevator, but the elevator is no longer there. The building is there, but there is construction work going on where the elevator used to be. I realise the elevator was some kind of portal and we’ve entered a parallel world or reality. I wonder how we can get back, now that the portal is gone. Three small ‘magic’ horses are presented to us. They look like large stuffed animals, and I am ‘told’ through inner guidance that they will help us find our way back.

Not long after - another dream.

I’m standing in my apartment looking out through our windows. I’m watching a black ‘twister’ tornado sweeping over the neighbourhood, uprooting everything. As it approaches our house again I think ‘It’s happening.’’ And I relax into it. But just before it reaches our windows, in the yard in front of me, it splits apart and loses power. The walls of the house around me shake once again, in the same characteristic way, but the tornado passes without any damage being done.

 I know these dreams/experiences are symbolic of my own inner walls shaking and (hopefully) falling eventually. But I can’t help thinking they are also ‘preparations’ for the bigger picture.

So am I ready? Am I prepared for what’s to come? I know it’s one of the main reasons I’m here. I know my soul is working with fervent urgency to raise my consciousness fast enough that I may be a force to reckon with when the time comes. And I know it’s coming, I can feel it, and that there’s little time. I’m not sure how I will react to all the suffering. The kids, like Megha said. The separations. Immensely challenging. But during the darkest nights of my soul, one meaningful thought kept me going, like a beacon of light in the darkness. That one day, my suffering will enable me to help others when their walls shake and fall apart.

With love and compassion,




So here you have it, just a few days after the wildfire that destroyed Paradise, maniacal consumptive madness on "Black Friday", as shoppers go crazy for those 'must have' deals. I wonder if anyone is putting 2 and 2 together?...

"I want to run,
I want to hide,
I wanna tear down these walls that hold me inside,
I wanna take shelter from the poised rain,
where the streets have no name.

We're still building then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there,
I go there with you
It's all I can do.

The city's a flood
And our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind
Trampled into dust
I'll show you a place
High on the desert plain
Where the streets have no name,
Where the streets have no name."

Rainer Marie Rilke summing up the spirit of soul dancing in times like these:

“I live my life in widening circles
That reach out across the world. 
I may not ever complete the last one,
But I give myself to it. 

I circle around God, that primordial tower.
I have been circling for thousands of years,
And I still don't know: am I a falcon,
A storm, or a great song?"

Hi Anatoly,

Thanks for sharing your synchronistic shuffle! When I went to the 'Still Breathing' link above, synchronistically the next song Youtube selected for me was this one 'Way Down We Go':

We get what we deserve

And way down we go



Openhanders we need to prepare ourselves for what is to come. The scale of the breakdown of the old reality will be beyond the imagination of the majority - every disaster movie you've every seen, back-to-back, will still be as a tea party for what we're going to have to traverse. And it will be real, with real emotions, thoughts and feelings.

Can you look into the eyes of a parent whose just lost their child, a child whose just lost their parents, someone whose entire reality they depended on has gone, and yet shine a rock steady acceptance that conveys "it's all okay", "you're not alone" and there is a deeper purpose to it all. When the emotional going gets heart-breakingly tough, can you still find the light to shine?

Just that question pushed me into such grieving that I do not think I am even remotely ready- the children angle ,I don't know if I am ready for that.  And yet ,I have always known at some level that this is what I came here to do. Its the energy I try and emit when in really difficult situations. It would seem with being in the ICU ,I would be perfectly trained for the job. And yet ,I sit here feeling woefully inadequate for the scale of the task that will be mine when everything starts to collapse. 

And it's collapsing. In my city we are increasingly exposed to gas chamber like conditions. This is the pollution capital of the world and yet nobody ,not even the intelligent cream of my country wants to look at it . When I mention climate change and that we may need to move in three years ,people try to shut me down . My own husband agrees it's true but doesn't want to do anything about it. 

I feel like I know deeply it's time to unplug from the matrix. My job here is winding up . It's time to look for a means of employment that gives much more flexibility. Much more time so I can establish a home in a much better,more remote place . 

In my body I can feel that the chaos is beginning - it's just a few years away ( 3 years is what I hear) in this part of the world . And I feel so inadequate !

Dear Megha, my heart goes out to you Heart

The very fact that you've confronted the situation, on a practically daily basis, and think you can't, is actually a good sign. It means you're dealing in reality, rather than denial and deferral. How many people in America and around the world, would witness something like what happened in the California Fires (or any other climate change disaster) and yet go right back to the day job, with the same approach, thoughts and feelings - the same agenda?

The biggest problem humanity faces is mass insomnia.

And on the other hand, when you're prepared to confront the truth of what is really going on, something miraculous happens within your soul consciousness - you find you can somehow summon the courage and wherewithall to bridge situations like this. Suddenly the daily machinations of ego and mind lose their importance, they start to fall into the background. This often happens to people in war zones and disaster situations. The soul emerges and you become able to respond in ways you never could have predicted. And that's when you start to channel the energy of the Universe through your creations.

So my advice is to keep confronting the truth about the situation, as you see and feel it. Keep being profoundly honest with yourself, BUT... also during that process, keep recalling your inviolable connect to the all-that-is.

In loving support

Dear Megha,

your speaking about air pollution and your inadquacy in response to the omni-present ignorance makes something ring deep inside of me. I am living in Mali at the moment and air pollution here in the capital city of Bamako with its two or three million people is a big issue. Once i dreamt that there must be a way to do something against this situation - the thought was, as all is frequency and vibration, so would it not be possible to transmute these dense pollution energies?

So i started a research and actually found something - the "Lemurian Environmental Hamonizer", which has an uplifting effect and improves the overall atmosphere of really a whole city (just Google it, if you wish). Curious about the actual effects this little wonder machine might have, i just bought one without thinking about the price and installed it here in my home in Mali about six months ago. And there is definitely a Change! Yes, really. Not only the pollution is a lot better now - for me, the whole city feels better. Scientific small I is not yet convinced yet and wants to wait a little longer to see the change in seasons, but the feeling is there already.

Maybe this resonates somehow with you.

From my heart,



Wow that's interesting. My sense is that the majority of people are not ready to really get where this is all heading to. I certainly feel boundaries that naturally arise when I'm speaking to people beyond the Openhand community. There's a great sense of responsibility that comes with it.

Many thanks for sharing

This morning I felt strongly drawn to take a different route to work than normal and when I was about halfway there is this big truck crossing right in front of me with the odd slogan in Dutch 'vertrouwelijke vernietiging', which translates in English to 'confidential destruction' (from a company dealing with discarding confidential documents it seems). It clearly felt like a strong synchronicity, that fits within this thread, though I haven't figured out what it was trying to tell me yet..... Just felt to share. 


The Shift is continually unfolding new dynamics all the time. Change is accelerating across our planet. Collective unconsciousness has caused the breakdown of the biosphere we live in, and paradoxically, the breakdown in the biosphere is creating countless mirrors that are now urging a wider wake up call.

This is NOT about saving the old existence though - it's the old status quo that has so undermined human consciousness and the planet as a whole. And new more environmentally friendly iterations of the old system are not going to work either. Only the progressive REALIGNMENT of human consciousness into the Universal Fold, The Natural Toridal Flow, is going to be viable in the long term.

One essential aspect of this realignment, is to take back soul sovereingty from the bankrupt karmic construct we're living in. And what I believe we're witnessing across the planet, within circles everywhere, is a very empowering upsurgence of that. It's facilitating the unbridled freedom to express your authentic self.

That's what I love about the "Extinction Rebellion" movement. Take a look at this video which explains all. And then see how it might inspire the ray 1 (divine masculine will) to express through you, in a firm and focussed way, but also with compassion for those not on your wavelength. We're looking to reclaim lost rays of consciousness that got buried in the sediment of life. That's the 'outcome' we're looking for...


My heart goes out to the people of California, in the town of "Paradise", who lost lives and livelihoods in the dramatic wild fire there a week ago. Heart  Of course it's all climate change related. And the shift will speak to us in signs and synchronicity, it always does.... Paradise is Lost! Let's get real about what's really going on across our planet. There is still plenty of time to look in the mirror life is presenting, to work past any denial and deferral, that you may delve deep into the limitations of separated identity and ego. As the Hopi said...

'a great cleansing is sweeping across the earth, there will be only spiritual solutions as we go forwards through this crucible of profound transformation'...
