How to Overcome Doubt and Fear by Flying on the Wings of Vulnerability

Submitted by Open on Fri, 06/08/2012 - 06:43

Do you sometimes find doubt difficult to overcome? Quite frequently in the facilitation work I do, the question of doubt arises. Doubt in yourself, doubt in your work, relationships and spiritual path. Doubt in the benevolent redeeming hand of the universe. It seems that when you first realise the benevolent presence of a unifying energy, many believe, hope or expect "everything will turn out just fine, it'll all be as we want it to". And if it doesn't, when it doesn't turn out that way, all too frequently you're led back down the ladder of doubt toward the start point.

So what's happening here? How do you break the cycle?
The answer is 'flying on the wings of vulnerability'...

What does Enlightenment feel like?

Submitted by Open on Wed, 05/30/2012 - 07:52

The taste of presence
From the Openhand perspective, we all border on enlightened states from time to time, it's just that as soon as the experience arises within, the tendency is to associate it with something else and lose the experience. Alternatively, a part of us is not comfortable with the experience and therefore creates once more the condition of internal separation from it. But this experience of non-identified presence is there in the background of everything we do and dictates every experience.

It is the guiding light and the faster we surrender to its inevitable pull, the more harmonious our lives will become. So what is this state of Enlightenment like? How can we recognise it and surrender into it?...

The "Seer" of all things

Submitted by Open on Mon, 05/21/2012 - 06:39

The search for the Holy Grail
There is something which humanity has been searching for since our inception. Something which is the answer to every single question, every single thought, word, deed and feeling. It is our destiny, it is the beginning and end of everything...the circle completing itself. We can search, question and create as much as we want to in the external world of effects, but unless we've found the source of our inquisitiveness, we're guaranteed not to have satiated our desires. Yet even when we eventually give up the fruitless external struggle and embark on the inner journey, we still won't find it whilst someone is looking for it. So what am I talking about? It is the HolyGrail. The "Seer" of all things...

What are the Chakras and their Purpose?

Submitted by Open on Tue, 05/15/2012 - 18:04


A great deal is spoken of in spiritual texts and musings about the Chakras and exactly what their purpose is. Here at Openhand, we view them as 'consciousness exchange points' where Unity Consciousness as the soul infuses with Separation Consciousness as the bodymind. Our lives are greatly affected and influenced by our relative level of vibration within these crucial consciousness centres. Understanding and exploring them will have a profoundly beneficial impact. Here is an extract from Five Gateways offering a perspective on their functions and purpose...

Soul Mates and Twin Flames

Submitted by Open on Mon, 05/14/2012 - 09:08

Birds of a feather or feathers off the same bird? We've been receiving many questions of late concerning the subject of Soul Mates. It seems many are out to find their "ideal" partner in life. So what's it all about? Do we meet on a dreamy white cloud and sail off into an eternal sunset whilst cherubims play their sweet soul music? Or is there a bit more to it than that? Both Trinity and myself are Soul Mates who have joined in union in this incarnation to help one another. We felt compelled to write this joint article which you might like to read if the subject interests you...

What does it mean to Truly Let Go?

Submitted by Open on Wed, 05/02/2012 - 06:14

Continual Process of Confrontation
In the shift of Human Consciousness we're often talking about 'letting go'. But what does it mean? How do we truly let go? In the coaching that I do, I often find there's a subtle inner program that makes people want to avoid challenging and difficult circumstances. It's certainly a conditioning from society. To me, true letting go, is a continual process of confrontation of the moment and surrendering into what we really feel...

Containing Destructive Energy...Then Unleashing Creative Aligned Expression

Submitted by Open on Fri, 04/06/2012 - 02:02

Life is full of paradoxes. In fact the more we walk the path, we may realise each stone we tread, is in itself a grey area of multiple truths, yet each step with a distinct Right Action. Take for example expressing ones truth: many know how important this can be. If we don't express who we truly are and if we're not being authentic, then we're certainly going to limit our unfolding. Yet what if we feel frustration inside, anger, rage or at times even hatred? I've observed all such colours are painted in life's karmic artistry. Is it right to suppress such feelings or deny them if they are bubbling away within? Yet if we let this causality out, does that not then draw to us their reflective effects?

Here's where we need to master the art of 'containment' and then unleashing authentic creative expression. What exactly do I mean by this?...

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.

Ancient Alien Theory

Submitted by Open on Thu, 01/12/2012 - 07:01

'For those who've been tuning into the Openhand material regularly, you'll know that from time to time we're referring to an "Opposing Consciousness", one that has intervened with the natural human evolutionary process and has been essentially controlling society for it's own ends. It's been a difficult subject to talk about openly because of the incredible volume of historical disinformation that's either burying the evidence or else 'spin doctoring' it to present particular sanitised viewpoints. Society does not want us to know the accurate picture, because once full disclosure of what's really going on unfolds in the collective consciousness, it will metaphorically turn how we live our lives 'on its head'. It will have an accelerating effect on human consciousness that could no longer be controlled by the 'powers-that-be'...

What is Ascension?: The Five Gateways of Expanded Consciousness

Submitted by Open on Thu, 01/05/2012 - 03:50

A profound route map for human evolution The world is undergoing a very turbulent evolutionary process. As the very fabric of our society begins to fracture, a New Paradigm is beckoning founded on unconditional love, joy and mutual respect for all life. The question is, how do you join it? There are many ways up the ‘spiritual mountain’, for each there will be a unique path. Yet those who have climbed before, often speak of five key expansions, five key 'altitudes', through which all tend to pass. It is a common journey that has been established by spiritual masters through the ages.

Understanding Planetary Ascension

Submitted by OpenhandTeam on Sun, 01/01/2012 - 07:16

Update 2012 Much has been written in recent times - especially through 2012 - about our planetary "Ascension". What exactly does the term mean? What is going on? To me it is an entirely natural evolutionary flow of the universe which although can be explained in scientific terms, can only really be grasped through spiritual realisation. To me, it is the movement of sentient life from one vibrational frequency of reality into a higher one. Along with a growing number of evolving people, I perceive Ascension is happening on Planet Earth right now as Gaia shifts her centre of consciousness into the 5th Density (and higher)...
