Why Spiritual Mastery is a Shattering Process...Understanding the Path

Submitted by Open on Sun, 01/10/2016 - 14:48

Anyone truly embarking along the spiritual path, must quickly give up the idea that it's easy, or especially, that it will somehow build you up into something. And it's definitely not all 'love and light' - not the true path anyway. In my experience, both of my own journey and in working with countless others, Spiritual Mastery is a shattering, breaking down process, that causes you to reconfront past-life trauma and source pain. It's also reflective of the current state of our reality right now.
Why is that? What might you expect? How might you deal effectively with what comes up?...

The Nature of a Soul Exchange (or 'walk-in')

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/19/2015 - 10:29


I incarnated somewhat unusually via what's termed a 'Soul Exchange' or more commonly referred to as a 'walk-in'. It's where two souls exchange places, within a fully fledged human being, by sacred agreement. It frequently happens during a near death experience (but isn't limited to that). What is the nature of this and why does it happen? I believe more souls than one might imagine have incarnated this way, and it can be extremely challenging to understand and integrate, which is why I feel to bring light to it. My purpose is to support and help. It may be that you have a particular mission here to fulfill...

The Process of Transformation from 3D to 5D Earth

Submitted by Open on Wed, 12/16/2015 - 11:05

These are monumental times to be alive. A phenomenal shift in the consciousness of Gaia is taking place, to which all life on the planet is invited. At the culmination of 2012, she centred her consciousness in the Fifth Density giving birth to a New Paradigm of existence. However, life here in the lower densities currently remains convoluted, intoxicated and poisonous. To the extent that if it continued, would risk the emergence of the New Paradigm and the future viability of successful co-creative harmony for all life on Earth. Thus a "Great Cleansing" is now necessary to secure the future of life on 5D Earth. A collapse mechanism of the old reality is just beginning. What will that likely entail?...

How letting go of Singular Truths can Liberate your Soul

Submitted by Open on Sat, 12/05/2015 - 18:36


One of the difficult challenges to overcome on the Spiritual Path, is letting go of the notion of singular truths, that make someone 'right' and someone else 'wrong'. Prior to awakening, people and society tend to deal with absolute truths - there is 'what's happened', beyond question, and all we need to figure out is, what took place. This makes someone 'right' and someone else 'wrong'. And it defines you to an identity within a reality - a fixed ego, forming judgments about the world and people in it. It's severely limiting. How might we let go of that?

What Spiritual "Empaths" and "Catalysts" might Learn From Each Other

Submitted by Open on Wed, 12/02/2015 - 08:17


Let me begin by saying I believe we ALL have varying degrees of empathic and catalytic qualities. The work here at Openhand draws people from both ends of the spectrum in equal measure. It often occurs to me that in the group work, each is reflecting to the other. Perhaps then, there are some things someone with more empathic qualities can learn about their gift from someone with more catalytic ones? (and vice versa). Perhaps, for example, there's something a "catalyst" naturally does, which is inherent to their nature, that an "empath" can also develop? And perhaps by opening to more empathic qualities, a "catalyst" can have a more sensitive effect on the field? That's the purpose of this exploration I invite you to join...

Entering the "Dreamspace" - 9 Ways to Become Multidimensional

Submitted by Open on Wed, 11/11/2015 - 17:31

There are two ways of living your life: one, as if nothing is a miracle; two, as if everything is! We're living in two world's not one: the old is one of systems, logic and control, which strangles the juice out of life. It's a reality long past it's self-by-date, essentially because it's divorced from the flow. Then there's another world - it's one of mystery, miracles and magic, where everything has a deeper meaning, a deeper significance and purpose. It's this that I call the 'dreamspace'. In fact it's far more real, far more fulfilling than 'reality'. What is this dreamspace like? How can you become multidimensional? How can you live it?...

The Importance of Individuality on the Path - this is YOUR day!

Submitted by Open on Wed, 11/04/2015 - 08:06

You are the One; and at the same time, you are a unique expression of the One. If we deny that uniqueness, or suppress it, you can't ride the wave of the Soul all the way back to the shores of the One within you. You have so very much to offer to life and the world. Sometimes in spiritual circles there's a tendency to emulate some perceived spiritual way of being. Or to drop duality by dropping the quintessence of you. This is self-defeating, building in itself, subtle spiritual identity. Individuality is essential to expressing the One. There's absolutely nothing like becoming the fullness of YOU...

Understanding the Great 5D Shift...What is Ascension into the New Paradigm?

Submitted by Open on Wed, 10/21/2015 - 09:41

It's clear that profound shifts of consciousness are taking place to sentient life on Planet Earth. The old reality is beginning to draw to a close; it's necessary that we unfold into a new vibrational paradigm of being - the next evolutionary chapter. What is that exactly? How does it work, and how do you join it? Ascension is actually quite a natural phenomenon of life - the underlying driving force, encouraging souls to unveil ever more of themselves. Here is an understanding of the overall process from the book 5GATEWAYS, together with a short doco film...

9 Step Spiritual Healing Process for dealing with Subconscious Trauma and Karma

Submitted by Open on Thu, 10/08/2015 - 06:21

I'm hearing from people around the world that the path is taking you deep into process. My heart is with you! Fear not, it is necessary. You can't truly access the New Paradigm without regressing into and processing karmic 'Source Pain'. This is subconscious conditioning that projects out into your world and has a disharmonious impact on your life. It's unavoidable, this karma brought souls here in order to confront such limitation and evolve through it - the only way out is through! Such spiritual breakthrough comes with enormous sense of well-being, rejuvenation, empowerment and growth. Here's Openhand's detailed approach to processing karmic trauma when it activates:

The True Nature of the Spirit Warrior...are you one?

Submitted by Open on Fri, 05/22/2015 - 06:55

What the world needs most of all right now, is for the new breed of 'Spirit Warriors' to step up and step out. It needs people to dive into centre stream; to take a risk, that we can truly change the worldwide reality by having the courage to change our own. It is said that... "madness is doing the same thing day in day out and yet expecting a different result!" Well, there's plenty of madness out there right now!

So where do you stand? Are you one of the New Spirit Warriors? Here's how to hone your warrior spirit...

9 Methods for dealing with Psychic Energy Attack in Your Field

Submitted by Open on Mon, 04/27/2015 - 14:40

There's a high degree of Psychic Energy Attack going on in the field right now. My strong sense is that it's coming from (what Openhand calls) the 'raptor consciousness'. It is a dense vibration, a controlling energy, that's like a consumptive virus. It's prevalent across the planet, has been so for millions of years, and acts through humanity's denser vehicles of expression. I've described it's origins in the Divinicus Book. Right now, that energy has been deeply stirred up and its stronghold here greatly challenged by the supportive, realigning energies of benevolence. It's making life increasingly unstable, but here's why that's a good thing and how to deal with it...

Moving Beyond the Patriarch Distortion: Breaking into Enlightenment

Submitted by Open on Mon, 03/16/2015 - 09:17

In moving fully towards and into Enlightenment, there is often the sense of something much bigger supporting and guiding us. And it can feel so benevolent, so caring and so patriarchal when it's there, that there often grows an incredible craving for it. However, as you move deeper and deeper into presence, closer and closer to the Source within yourself, there'll come the point where your soul yearns to drop into it. You actually become 'the father' so to speak. You become that openness which is the source of all authentic experience. Hence, paradoxically, the 'father' must disappear; the sense of external guidance must cease. It must all come from within. And this can be a very lonely place... at first...
