A crossroads in our evolution
Our way of life on this planet is becoming increasingly unsustainable. We have created a reality founded on Industrial Consumerism where control, manipulation and exploitation of our natural resouces has brought us to the brink of existence.

At Openhand we advocate going within and discovering the pathway to a higher vibrational reality based on unconditional love, joy and mutual respect for all life; a place where we discover less is more. These articles offer a view on current World News, invite people to question the viability of our current system and instead embark on the inner journey to self completeness...

Who Cares if One More Light Goes Out?

Submitted by Open on Wed, 10/11/2017 - 17:35

Here in the Openhand Team we've been facing a major uphill battle as we've migrated years of data up to a new website engine, which you can see here now. It's been several months of hard graft, and the last month of which, 4am starts 6 days a week. Phew! When we did eventually go live, it was only then that a raft of configuration issues presented themselves, severely restricting the new functionality. And on top of it all, as I took to travels for the North American installment of the 5D Shift tour today, our server crashed! As I was reflecting on it all at the airport, I found myself questioning: Why work so hard? Why always push to the limit?
It made me remember the reason I began this all back in 2004....

Stepping Bravely into the World You Don't Know

Submitted by Open on Mon, 10/09/2017 - 05:27

Day by day I can feel the higher dimensional flow strengthening. It's challenging the 'normality' of life - all the subtle interrelations we allow to bind us into invisible limitation. You look out into the world, your life, and the mind goes immediately to work, computing subtle judgements of expectations about how things should work, bound together with emotional anxiety about anything that would invite you to take a chance - to step beyond the bounds of the comfortable. In every moment we face a choice: we can either continue to accept this limitation as the comfortable cell we live in, or, open out through these painful contractions into the vulnerability of an open space. What will happen if we dare to do that?

It's vitally important to detox mentally, emotionally and physically

The Secret Music Hearers...Are You One?

Submitted by Open on Mon, 09/11/2017 - 12:43

I'm traveling again, on the World Tour of Openhand's 5D Shift Project. It's hectic: planes, trains and wall-to-wall busyness. But I don't mind. This is life and there are constant reminders to look through and transcend it all - countless mirrors and messages. When I'm traveling, I just love to have my ipod on shuffle - the lyrics and rhythms never fail to relate to the deeper meaning and message - they speak into the flow itself. Mostly people have got their heads in their own limited eddy currents, but every now and then, you'll catch that knowing smile or the unspoken glint in someone's eye. Yes - they're hearing the secret music too!...

Endings and Beginnings..3 Steps to Breathe Your New Authenticity to Life!

Submitted by Open on Mon, 08/21/2017 - 06:59

It's a solar eclipse today on August 21st - special numerology indeed. For me it represents a time of endings and beginnings. It's a question of continually dying to the past and being reborn in the present, to unleash vibrant new creativity in your life. This can happen in careers, relationships and general living circumstances. And of course it's not limited to a particular date in the calendar - I suggest it's something to practice regularly, inside oneself. Why is this important and how do you do it?...

How does time in nature transform our energy field and heal us?

Submitted by Trinity on Thu, 08/10/2017 - 18:26

Have you ever noticed how good you feel after going for a walk in nature? Or how relaxed you feel when sitting down in a park, pottering in a garden, walking barefoot on the beach or even sitting on a lawn? There's something about connecting with the Earth that harmonises our internal rhythms, induces inner-peace and recharges us.

Embracing Curiosity on the Spiritual Journey

Submitted by Fiona Reilly on Wed, 08/09/2017 - 07:21

Recently I have been valuing the simplicity of being curious. By being curious I mean actively engaging with our innate enthusiasm for wonder, discovery and learning. It includes seeing and appreciating the magic and miracles that continually surround us. Just consider how a young child engages with their surroundings and how absorbed they are in life and discovering more about themselves and the world in which they find themselves. Curiosity is a process of inquiry and a continuous exploration...

Growing World Fire...Let Souls Soar like the Pheonix

Submitted by Open on Fri, 07/28/2017 - 07:51

Yet again summer has been dry as a bone in much of Europe, igniting wild fires in France, Portugal and Spain, forcing thousands to flee, as in the popular holiday destination of Saint Tropez. And in California, record-breaking heat and fierce Santa Ana winds have caused thousands to flee their homes. As in many other places around the globe, the weather is becoming nothing short of biblical. As strange as it may at first sound, and whilst feeling deep love and empathy for those affected, how can spiritual people turn these drastic events into a positive?

What can we learn?

Finding Lightness of Heart in Abrupt Accelerating Climate Change

Submitted by Open on Sat, 07/15/2017 - 08:01

An Iceberg the size of Trinidad and Tobago has just broken off the Antarctic Ice Shelf. Personally I find this deeply significant in the Great 5D Shift - only a couple of years ago, plenty in the spiritual mainstream were pointing to the growth in Antarctic Ice to deny that Climate Change was warming the planet. I know this is 'inconvenient'. I know it's not the kind of thing you necessarily want to read about. But, as evolving people, I believe it's utterly essential to take note. We must attain higher dimensional consciousness by transcending the lower ones - we can do it, and there's nothing to fear. Such circumstances will serve to make us stronger and more complete...

What's the REAL Solution to Looming Environmental Catastrophe?

Submitted by Open on Thu, 07/13/2017 - 06:57

With escalating regularity a factual event now occurs in the world that shocks you awake. Like the fact that society is now consuming over 1 million plastic bottles per minute. Yes, just digest that for one moment before moving on. By 2021, that'll amount to half a trillion bottles per year - are such figures even comprehendable by the human mind? Well put it this way, at this rate, by 2050, the ocean will contain more plastic bottles than fish! Where is this all heading? What's the wider message about the society we're living in? What's the REAL solution to this insanity? Only a spiritual shift in consciousness can save mankind now...

Be all in - Go All the Way...Inspirational Video Poetry

Submitted by Open on Mon, 06/19/2017 - 17:30

There can be no half measures if we truly want to progress along the path. We have to be all in - you have to go all the way, in. You can't dip just your toe in and expect that you'll succeed. You won't. Because it's the fiery crucible that stirs the inner emotions of consciousness, those that cause breakthrough; it's where your spirit truly moves. And it won't fully move without that. Progression on the path means the stirring up of this consciousness, so it wells up within you. It's there that you find out who you truly are - where you define who you truly are. That's what I adore about this video poem by Charles Bukowski. Be all in - Go all the way...

Can the British Election Spark a Global Upsurge in More Socialist Values?

Submitted by Open on Wed, 05/31/2017 - 16:07

Consciousness always flows in waves - sometimes the tide contracts as we move into density, but the expansion always swells back, such is the way in the expansion of awareness. Brexit represented an opportunity for greater soul sovereignty, but that wave was then usurped by the right wing. Society swung further right with political change in the US, which continued in the early stages of the British election with the socialists nowhere insight. Biased media and carefully manipulated opinion was successfully obscuring the light. But just as JC himself overturned the capitalist tables some 2000 years ago, will today's socialist JC Jeremy Corbyn gain enough momentum to succeed? And if he does, how wide will the ripples of increased consciousness spread?
