We Are Earth Bound Misfits Learning to Fly

Submitted by Open on Mon, 05/29/2017 - 05:39

Yes, levitation is possible. What it requires is mastery of the illusion of physicality, by penetrating the unity consciousness of the soul, into every cell of apparent separation of the body. That's a tall order one might reasonably consider! But there's masses to be gained even by venturing down the path in that general direction. What we're talking about is transcendence - you feel into the density of the body, normalising with it so as not to judge it as something solid and separate. Then you can attune to the light flowing into it, which turns the volume up on your interconnected experience. Progressively all manner of miracles and magic take off...

Embracing true Transcendence

Transcendence is not about trying to leave the body, and true spirituality is not about distancing oneself from the density of the physical. For subconsciously, this just creates an acknowledgement that there's something you're trying to distance yourself from. This in turn creates polarity - you become that subtle identity in some kind of avoidance, which defeats the object of becoming The One - by being as-One with everything that shows up.

In the Openhand Work, we'll often guide people into increasing sense of density, by using yoga type movement (soulmotion) to push into the edge of the inner comfort zone - where things start to get tight, challenging and even painful. At this point, if you're attentive, you'll start to witness that part of separated self that slips into judgment: "I cannot deal with this discomfort, I want to be beyond it, I want it to go away". Who is the "I" here? Obviously small I identity - because The One in you can tolerate anything, and it's possible for your soul to expand out of everything.

Rather than avoiding such feelings and situations, there's enormous opportunity and potential for growth in them. By feeling deep into them and going right to the core of the feeling, you have a chance to 'normalise' with them. Which means you stop judging it as a 'bad experience'..."It's just an experience that feels like this". When you stop judging, the mind relaxes, which allows the subtle vibrations of unity consciousness - of the soul - to flood in. Since the soul is connected to the "all-that-is", then you connect up to the unlimited potential of The One.

Just look at what The One has created throughout the known universe. So, in effect, you become a channel of this unlimited potential... 7 Ways to Manifest Greater Resources and Possibility in the Great 5D Shift

The Conditioning goes much deeper than Thought

I'm not saying this is easy! We are held in place in this reality by our belief - our conditioning - in it. And this conditioning runs deep - zillions of fixed neural pathways that have developed since birth, telling us: "Yes you are physical, yes you have limitation, and no, you definitely cannot fly!" This conditioning goes much deeper than your thoughts. So for example, it doesn't work just to think you can fly (and by 'fly' here I mean flying through life, interconnected with divine manifestation). You have to have penetrated into many layers of inner density - including the zillions of neural pathways that are conditioned to lock you into the separation - they are there, and have to be worked through.

I find it helps to realise that the body is mostly space - if you take all the space from between the sub atomic particles out, then there wouldn't be enough matter to fit on a pin head. And even that is not solid, it's vibrating strings of interconnected energy The more you penetrate this illusion, with meditation for example, the more you start to slip beyond the sense of solidity, and more into the subtle feelings of flow.

When you consider that all matter is like this, then you start to get that at a really deep level, physicality can be influenced and changed.

What's the practical application of this?

Manifesting new Vehicles of Expression - Overcoming the Physical

To give an example, I spent some time overseas to the Canary Islands, where I needed a car to get around. But within divine manifestation, as an interconnected part of the universe, it is never just about buying a car (or a house or clothes or anything else material). These become expressions of your soul - the material manifestation of you. So the soul is requiring something by which to express itself, and so if the soul is allowed to flow through, it will manifest what is genuinely required - note this has nothing to do with intentional manifestation, which eventually breaks down. It's about allowing to come through, what is meant to come through.

At the time, my soul was working into deep layers of the physical, which I could feel progressively during my morning meditations. And so out in the afternoons, just free-wheeling and following the pull, my attention would be drawn to a particular type of vehicle, that was an expression of the energy buried in that particular layer. But knowing that the particular vehicle didn't feel a fully aligned expression of me, I'd let the manifestation go, but then work deeper into - and through - those layers in the subsequent days meditations. Whereupon the vehicles that my attention would be spiked to, changed shape, colour and specification - it was a pretty phenomenal reflection!.

It's important to enpathise this is NOT about trying to manifest. It's about working to allow full soul infusion, as a divine expression of The One, then witnessing the external effect. BUT, we are in the physical for a reason, and so we can expect - we require - manifestation to happen. When I'd just about reached what I thought were the final physical layers, the flow took me out onto the island, on a circuitous path, connecting with the vibe of the place, asking for the "resources of rightness" to appear, then reading signs and synchronicity. Half way round, the landing of higher knowing said I'd get an "Opel for Open" (which I had to laugh about!) But where to find one? The key is simply to hold the question, not needing the immediate answer - it's not about finding, but instead following the flow.

It was nearing the end of the day and I was feeling to go home, having not found what I knew to be the right expression of me, and my heart was a touch weighted with disappointment, which I immediately recognised to work with and unwind out of. Right then, a little pull directed my attention to a tucked away industrial estate, which I'd not seen before. I was feeling pretty shattered by now, but I felt to overcome that, and to transcend the feeling by going right through it. Then, what should appear at the very end of the last road on the industrial estate, what should I find, but a small Opel garage! And in it, they were selling a used car, with the perfect configuration for me and the perfect numbering in the registration plate - every number and letter spoke into my life's situation. Better still, the model was called an Opel Ovrecame. I'd overcome the physical layers I was working into, and thereby divinely manifested by unleashing soul as a flow through life. I felt blessed by the miraculous. I share it as an example that might inspire you too.

An Earth Bound Misfit, Learning to Fly

On the way back, with my ipod on shuffle, this song came on by Pink Floyd, all about learning to fly, which I felt to share with you. Yes, fly we can. But first you have to Overcome the physical, by transcending it...

"A soul in tension that's learning to fly Condition grounded but determined to try Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I"

I got it!! I'll do my best to put in practice what you said.

(oh, my name is Eduardo by the way, I didn't notice it was ebellon before)

Many thanks!


Hi Ebellon, great to meet you and a warm welcome to Openhand *OK*

First let me say that for sure, it doesn't matter a jot what your circumstances are - we manifest exactly the environment we need to explore the lessons presenting right now. So your situation is perfect - until you integrate more soul and then it will likely change.

For me the first step in approaching the path, would be to become the observer of everything that you do and experience. So in relation to what takes place in the outer, just notice and feel what goes on in the inner. Then work to let go of the need for an outcome from any situation - although do commit yourself to the inquiry of what presents.

What tends to happen from this approach, is to begin to experience yourself as the observer and progressively presence - ie, not the ego that is bound up in everything.

In terms of meditation, the key is to find what works best for you. And by "works best", I mean what gives you a sense of rightness, alignment and the sense of authentic YOU?

That said, usually meditating at least three times a day would greatly help - first thing in the morning is good, before you get into the busyness of the day. Then personally I'll meditate around noon and also in the evening. It doesn't have to be too long - just building up to 30 minutes each time would have a greatly beneficial effect. Although as you begin to really enjoy it, and if you have the space, you could build up from there - plenty of people in the community meditate for a few hours a day.

It would be very worth downloading the Openhand Breakthrough Meditation.

It's a good basic beginner and can take you a long way.

The meditation could also include consciously walking in nature. You may find this six senses meditation of value...

I would also recommend reading the Openhand Book Series, beginning with Breakthrough. They share the awakening experiences, how to facilitate them, and then take you on a journey right through the Ascension process...

And maybe we'll see you on one of the courses sometime when. We'd be pleased to host you.

Wishing you well

Hello! This is my first post on Openhand :D

Let's get straight to the point:

I'm very familiar with all spiritual concepts and basically what one needs to "do" to ascend, but I'm still financially dependent on my parents and I can't dedicate myself entirely to the Path. So I need to know what is the best way to put all this in practice effectively NOW.

I'm not trying to rush the process! I know it takes lots of time and focus (and therefore patience), but since my inner and outer worlds are totally connected, it makes me feel a bit anxious to know that I'm not dedicating to the Path. In other words, if I'm not using my time to reharmonize with Source now, it will be more difficult (or take more time) to achieve my financial independence and thus have the time that I need to reharmonize fully with Source. Did you get my point?

Fortunately, I know that I'm on the right track regarding to my job and the dreams that come from my heart. Also, I'm not eating meat/dairy anymore and choosing food in a conscious way.

- Do I need to be present in my body (mindfulness) 100% of the time in my daily routine?
- How many maditations a day, at least? Should I use affirmations and visualizations as well?
- What should I priorize in my meditations? Higher dimensional contact?
Forgiveness? Healing fears? Being allowing to receive?

Open, if you answer this I'll be forever grateful!

*sorry for any english mistakes*


Thanks Open for sharing your car story and the whole misfits post. I find people really love true anecdotes that express the inner world in the way your story did. I find it confirming to witness what is happening externally when I may be unsure of what is happening internally. Here's to flying....


Yes it is goood to be here sharing a miraculous life with this wonderful group. I'll save my stories for another time. This past.. hmmm year, few weeks, few months... however you wish to describe this time machine within the timeless. I have felt that the best, easiest, simplest, happiest, truest... pick one as you wish, (again no words really describe this space I'm in) way to describe it: is to say when ask how I am 'Doing'?; "I want Nothing... and Everything at the Same Time... Honoring, Savoring and fully Experiencing whichever shows up!)
Wooohoo and YeeeHaaaaa,

Jim :dance:


Hey Cathy - you're such a warrior *OK*

Aspasia and Jim - nice to "see" you.

Open :-)


Perfect once again as I was just sharing this with a friend this morning... then come home to this post. Yesss our remembering the illusion, transcending it, coming to terms with our immortality, our infinite living.. our infinite beingness, fully embracing our True Nature of 'Oneness' and then.. coming back to living fully within these finite bodies. <3
Carrying all the aspects of Holographic Universe within a single spec of time.

Tis' goooood!!!

Peace love and infinite light,


Beautiful demo Open, again very inspiring! And such a powerful video/song as Anatoly and Vimal also pointed out.

Cathy, I find your tuning into the flow very inspiring too! Particularly because I am in the process of learning how to consciously tune into the flow as a way of life and therefore, currently searching...mmm not searching...ehm, following the flow to a new home in a new town. And love this!: "There is only flow", very insightful and encouraging.


Hi Open,

I love your exploration of how you worked through the densities that came up, including your disappointment at the end of your travels when it appeared it was all for naught. Yet you didn't give up and kept going, trusting the 'right' car would miraculously manifest. And it did! You found an "Opel for Open". I do get key words out of nowhere sometimes without knowing the significance and have discovered they are important cues and signs from the universe.

I recall an experience four years ago when my partner and I were looking for a more affordable place to live. We searched for weeks but found nothing and were about to pack up and move to a less expensive city.

I woke up suddenly from an afternoon nap and heard the words, "Check out the rental ads now." Although discouraged, a strong sense of will arose from within as I lay there on the bed. It felt like I floated from the bed to the computer in the next room. As though uplifted on the wings of angels. In a sense, flying.

I opened the first rental website that came to mind, and there it was! An ad for the perfect place for us at that time. When I called the contact person, I discovered that the initial ad had been removed a few weeks prior, but the deal fell through so had just been placed again that very afternoon. I was the first person to call. We got the place!

Here we are feeling the pull to relocate again. Somehow, somewhere, whatever wants to unfold will fall into place if I trust in synchronicity. That's what miracles are. Trust hand in hand with the divine flow. As Trinity once said here on the forum, "There is just flow."

x Cathy


Thanks for connecting guys - always good to feel you *OK*

I shared the car experience because I wanted to demo just how divine manifestation takes place as the outer expression of the inner exploration.

I observe how so often, inner spiritual work seems divorced from the outer experience, when both are meant to be - ARE - interconnected. One influences the other and cannot be separated.

It's all about learning to notice what you're already creating and holding the space for what is being reflected. Then working inwards to gain greater infusion and congruency.

Life simply takes off!

Open <3


Beautiful article , i especially loved the divine manifestation of car. I was listening to this song today afternoon and i wondered why this amazingly deep song was never shared in openhand. And what did i find here! Its definitely speaking for me to learn to fly.


Wow, what an amazing experience to have! The story and the video speaks to me and sends shivers down my spine!
