What is the Soul?

There are many definitions of what the Soul is. For us here at Openhand, consciousness flows through the universe as waves on a vast ocean. You and we are each a unique blend of these various energetic characteristics - aspects of beingness.

So we are being both the ocean and a unique blend of universal consciousness too. It's what we call a 'Soul Ray Harmonic'. The Soul is what makes us unique, animates who we truly are, and the Soul's full liberation and expression is the purpose of our existence.

When the Soul can flow through the experience of our lives without attachment and full unbridled expression, then we are self realised and Enlightend.

Navigating the 3D New Norm in the Unravelling Energies of the 5D Shift

Submitted by Open on Sun, 05/24/2020 - 08:07

There's no doubt, following the instigation of the global fear pandemic and the lockdown, life in the 3D is going to change dramatically. The controllers would clearly have it one way, that of increased centralised control and erosion of civil liberties. However, don't lose site of the fact that this was all instigated BECAUSE of the ongoing 5D Ascension Shift, which is waking people up and challenging the narrative of the Old Paradigm. What can we intuit as the best way to navigate through our rapidly changing landscape?

5D Crystalline Grid - Divine Super Intelligence, And 5 Ways To Be In It

Submitted by Open on Sun, 04/26/2020 - 07:44

I recently shared the very exciting news from the Benevolent Mission that Gaia's 5D Crystalline Grid, the underlying construct of the New 5D Paradigm, had been repaired, reconstituted and augmented; and that it had now come online for us all to benefit from. The completion has been accelerated so as to counter the increasing electrification of 3D Earth and the attempt at increased power and surpression by the system. How do you best tune into the 5D Crystalline Grid and what is the experience like?

The Top 10 Ways to Raise Your Vibration in Earth's 5D Shift

Submitted by Open on Mon, 09/30/2019 - 06:47

You often hear about the need to 'raise your vibration' in the ongoing consciousness shift that is sweeping across our planet. Further on I share Openhand's top 10 ways for doing so, but before that, it's essential to understand what is 'raising your vibration'? What exactly does it mean, because clearly there's plenty of misconception going on and it's important to get it right if we are to align with the unfolding 5D Shift...

The Sacred Ground of Being...The Quintessence of Who We Are

Submitted by Open on Mon, 09/02/2019 - 04:04

We are amidst the most phenomenal shift of consciousness in the history of our planet, and of humanity's journey on it. Day by day the external drama seems to ratchet up another notch. With climate crisis, environmental degradation and the bankruptcy of the governing system, the shadow side is illuminating itself in all its outrageous lunacy. In this outer turmoil, it is utterly essential that evolving people have some inner ground, a mast, to which to anchor centred consciousness, so as to find peace, serenity, and to step forth into the world with aligned authentic decision making. It's essential therefore, that we continually access what's termed our "Sacred Ground of Being"...

5D Shift: Exposing the Myth of the "Critical Mass" Ascension

Submitted by Open on Mon, 06/03/2019 - 05:32

It's fine that we have distortion in our philosophy. Everything is a perspective, there are no absolutes in relativistic reality. However, what can be severely limiting and derailing, is where a myth becomes an accepted norm within the group consciousness. Particularly one that might prevent people from empowering themselves by following their own path, their own trajectory, and in their own time. Such, I maintain, is the illusion of the idea that, 'humanity will ascend when there is a critical mass of people to cause a collective shift into the New Paradigm'. The history of previous shifts through the aeons does NOT bear witness to this. So how do Shifts really work?

The Time of the Spiritual Warrior Has Arrived!

Submitted by Open on Wed, 05/01/2019 - 06:05

Never before in the history of our planet have we been faced with such crisis and challenge: from climate change to the invasion of SMART technology, from environmental degradation to the growing war on consciousness. It's enough to cause some people to shrink back in their shells, but for many, the converse is true: challenge inspires the emergence of soul, the catalyst to break apart the constrictive mold. The time for playing it small in our shell has long since shattered. Our times call on a new emergent breed of Spiritual Warrior to step up and step out...

The Spiritual Journey as an "Infinite Game" - Be the Infinite Player!

Submitted by Open on Mon, 01/07/2019 - 06:19

Have you realised it yet? The Spiritual Journey does not lead to some final accomplishment. You do not reach some distant end goal, some 'top of the mountain' or even some state of never-ending peace. Even "The Shift" or "The Event" as some call it, is just a shift within a shift within.... There is no where to get to! Even the mystical state of Enlightenment is not an ending but a beginning. Think about this deeply for a moment. You can stop striving right now. There's phenomenal freedom in it. And if you can find your right alignment in this "Infinite Game", it will bring you continual joy and accomplishment...

The Metaphysics of Our Spirituality within the Universal Toroidal Field

Submitted by Open on Thu, 11/22/2018 - 03:59

It's spiritual old hat these days to say "everything is interconnected". Likewise, it's spiritual old hat to say that 'everything is a part of the universal flow'. Let's go deeper:

How does this interconnection work and how does the flow come through you, thereby influencing every thought, emotion and action that you take? Most essentially, how can you effectively centre your consciousness in this natural movement, thereby bringing harmony to your life, and successful manifestation of the things you're given to create?

5D Shift: Unwinding the "Black Snake" Energy of the Deep Field

Submitted by Open on Tue, 10/02/2018 - 04:30

Is there metaphoric truth in the Garden of Eden story? That somehow humanity has been tempted out of divine union by a shadow side "Black Snake" energy that engrosses through distorted attachment to the physical? In this sense, most definitely yes. And it's an energy that has misaligned the very foundation of society itself, creating a "deep state" or "deep field" that works to ensnare through deceptive manipulation. We see it all around surreptitiously propagated through the media. The Shift energies are now beginning to tackle and unwind this energy itself, which is a very positive development. Here's an overview exploration of how you might tackle it in your own field for the greater good...

Containing Sexual Kundalini through Tantra, To then Manifest Creatively

Submitted by Open on Fri, 09/28/2018 - 06:58

On the spiritual journey, as kundalini starts to rise from the base, progressively due to the spiritual work you may be doing (chakra meditations for example), then the movement of energy can feel very sexual at times. And it can result in a strengthening of sexual desire that wants to be fulfilled. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's right for it to be expressed sexually, perhaps because the situation isn't right for it, or else a potential partner isn't available, or because the energy is meant to be contained and expressed in a different way, which can then become amazingly creative in your life. You may contain it and embody it, through particular practices of 'tantra'...

Transitioning to 5D Consciousness... What do You Focus on?

Submitted by Open on Tue, 08/28/2018 - 05:40

There is a movement now, a flow, and it's gathering speed. But just as the realigning movement of consciousness itself is strengthening, so is the noise and drama of the Old Paradigm. When you're inquiring, you can palpably feel the anxiety, fear and conditioning of the many who're still clinging to the vestiges of the worn out 3D/4D reality. You'll likely feel it emotionally, mentally, physically and karmically when you make creative choices. We have to be careful we don't get stuck in deadend loops. It's time to focus on the flow itself, and the consciousness landscape it's directing us toward. It's essential then, that we're very mindful where we put our attention...

How to Find Lasting Contentment and Fulfillment in a World of Change?

Submitted by Open on Mon, 07/16/2018 - 05:43

The pace of change is hotting up across our planet day by day. If it's not the system constantly introducing new ways to occupy oneself, new distractions to entertain or enslave, new gadgets and widgets that we simply must have, then there's The Shift itself, which is pulling at the very bedrock of our reality. To add to the complexity, the soul is constantly looking for new expression and evolved ways of being. So in this cauldron of profound change, how might we find lasting contentment and fulfillment? It's a tricky balancing act, but there is certainly a way, providing we focus on some key essentials:
