How to Follow Your Path of Light through the Accelerating 5D Shift

Submitted by Open on Sun, 03/12/2017 - 04:08

It's a challenging world out there no doubt. And it's getting more challenging by the day as the 3D world consciousness gets decidedly wobbly. If you're still trying to shape and control the old reality in some particular way, or are dependent on it going in a specific direction that provides particular resources and support in a particular way, then think again. We must find a new way of being and creating. Conversely, if we can align with the shift into 5D consciousness, we're going to find all our manifestations supported. How do you make the switch? What's involved? Here's how to follow the path of light through it all...

A change in perception, a change in reality

The first thing to say is that shifting into 5D consciousness does not mean you immediately leave the planet! Neither does it automatically mean you become ungrounded and spaced out - somehow disconnected from reality - not at all! Right now we're living in two worlds now not one: everything you see with the physical eyes was built with the old 3D consciousness. That's what's getting increasingly challenged, as we're witnessing with abrupt climate change, dwindling natural resources and increasing financial instability. We're also seeing the judgmentalism and small-mindedness of humanity's shadow raising its ugly head. But there's a higher world interwoven through all this - a more expanded consciousness which is flowing through it. If you can align with that, then things will really take off for you, despite the craziness we witness all around.

The important thing is a change in perception, which although may sound simple, requires 100% commitment to achieve: the flow will not give you the outcome the ego wants; it will not make things necessarily easy for you. In fact quite the reverse: it's going to challenge you in all the places you might hang on and identify - where you think a particular outcome is necessary for your well being. It's because the flow is designed to bring you to non-attached freedom - the essence of your soul. When we surrender in this way, then things do indeed get a whole lot easier.

Where do you close down? That's where to open up!

Here's the major misconception of the spiritual mainstream that leads many astray: although you'll initially get tasters of "love and light", yes, when you actually connect up to the flow, it'll take you into all the bottlenecks in life where you close down and get restricted - challenges in relationships for example where you need the other to be a certain way; challenges in careers, jobs and resources, where you might think you need more than you really do; challenges in living circumstances, where you believe you need a particular location or set-up; or else there's resistance to change from where you currently are.

When you open up and truly connect to the flow, it feels like a hot air balloon rising upward (inward), pulling against its tethering (all the places you get stuck). So if this is happening to you, then it's a good sign, because you're actually aligning with the path. All you have to do then, is make the commitment to confront the "tethering" - where you tighten and get stuck.

Miracles will happen around you

The point is, the flow of light is not aiming for anything in particular - other than the revelation of your expanded and miraculous cosmic self. But that said, it will create the most magnificent physical creations (as your balloon rises). It'll most definitely create through us when we're walking the path. It is, for example, creating a pristine new 5D reality all around us, with the consciousness of the old reality unraveling and ascending into it. If you're working toward that higher dimensional connection in all that you do, then miracles will surely happen around you.

Consider when the car breaks down, you get a speeding fine or sacked from your job. It's easy to identify in such circumstances, to worry about the cost and the future. If you're really looking for 5D consciousness, then it's exactly these circumstances that present the golden opportunity - you must 'pass through the eye of the needle', by confronting your inner constrictions, as they arise. For only that way, can you process them out and thereby unleash soul through them.

I was out driving in Mount Gambier (in Oz) a while back, whilst on an Openhand Tour. I was in a borrowed car in a place that I didn't know. I drove straight into speed trap and was facing a $500 fine. But it turned out the traffic cop was from the UK and my old home town to boot! As I softened any inner tightness, anxiety or concern, a higher dimensional connection of consciousness between us ensured I was let off with just a warning. Awesome!

What I've noticed is, that the more you commit to the exploration and revelation of self, the shorter the constricting bottlenecks last, and the more you expand with the flow coursing through you. It literally feels like a path of light is opening up before you and 'connecting the dots of reality' around you. So how do you align with this flow?

A compass and a routemap

In short, we need a compass and a routemap. The compass causes you to confront what's really happening in the moment - by looking internally at how you react to external events. In essence, you work right into the tightness, unravel it, then unleash soul through it. This then shapes a new set of circumstances that are harnessing energy from the new 5D reality - synchronicity clicks in around you; your manifestations are increasingly supported by energy. And as you follow this flow, you begin to notice there's a pathway heading to a particular "place" - not so much a location, but a new way of being.

The routemap is one which enlightened souls have followed in the past. In essence, it's a distillation of the kinds of experiences ascending people have had. It's not about telling you what's real for you. Rather it's about sharing what's happened for others, then offering reflections so that you may find your own way to your own inner gateways. If you can identify roughly where you are on the landscape, and what type of experiences you're having, then it helps transition through much more quickly and effectively.

This is the essence of Openhand's essential work on empowering the shift.
It's all about living in 5D consciousness now, by getting into what we can call our "Flow State". To conclude, here's a video exploration of that from the Openhand Events & Courses...

Hello and Greetings dear All

Feel all Ds are already and were already there, but the knowing has thoughts came were what is the guarantee that in a higher D, people are not controlling, way back from history we see how energy was being used for not so good purposes....but the good news is that quantum has an attitude of its own(as Kryon says), which means the purpose is goodness, love, positivity in the change, and the change is indiscriminative 

so am being given these thoughts that aligning with the purpose still is so important like learning love compassion kindness harmony humility whichever dimension one is, for the long run...

thank you for your platform,  for it allows many to share their word and resonance

much love 





I felt to share this article again today - the importance of finding the path of light through the accelerating Earth Shift cannot be overstated. It can help you in countless productive ways here in the 3D, but also prepare you for the 5D state too.

Here's a sense of what that leads to as we begin to unfold into the Spirit Light Body (shot on our level 3 Divinicus Course at the stunning mountain retreat "Cae Mabon")...




Hiya all,

I felt to draw attention to this article again today, since Openhand is now moving into the "Living the Shift" program of courses and events. It's essentially our stage 2 work...

Since my time in Africa during the African Origins Safari, it feels like a great deal has been shifting in the weather patterns and I feel the field moving strongly under the surface again. So we must stay focussed and committed. Seize each day, each moment, and find the opportunity for growth.

A big part of the work will be about finding and unleashing our passion. What fires your soul?...


Hi Everyone, I felt to repost this article again today, as we're coming into the Festive Season...

It can be a very challenging time for awakened people: all of that excessive consumption goes into overdrive, which can be an offence to the senses; then there's often the challenges of family and the expectations of what you should or shouldn't do.

By sharing with each other, we can help mediate your pathway of light through it. So what challenges do you usually have to face and what's beginning to come up right now?


I'm flowing. I can see the comments section on all articles, including my own, with the exception of Open's article on "Who Cares if One More Light Goes Out?" As we say in theater, "Bring up the house lights!" 

Cathy :)


Doing some testing for Open on the new website. Let's see how I connect to the flow on the OH forum with this comment under a different article! Humour is a must! Cathy :)




Going with the divine flow is so much easier than hitting the brick walls of ego! Enough bruises already! ? Posting from my mobile!  Great to have the toolbox and emojies here! x Cathy


Ha ha, the irony of "speeding"..! And look what happens when you stop or are stopped. Wonderful article - profound and funny - thank you. Great to know you're zooming around out/in t/here.


I found your film whilst googling how to live in the transition between 3D and 5D. You know the thing about trying to hold it all together, pay the bills and care for my children whilst balancing that with an increasing spiritual awareness and need to live in a more authentic way. I didn't find all the answers, but I did find a new way of thinking, a new approach, a new lightness and openness. No idea how it will unfold, but I am feeling much more relaxed about just trusting in the way ❤️ Thank you x Julie x


Great article, Open! Clear and straightforward. So far the light led me to Openhand community but more importantly to ever deeper layers inside myself and authenticity. At the moment, I feel like i am dealing more with mental plane where i get often stuck. It is a slippery path but i will persist!

With Love,
