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.

The Guru within...YOU are the Captain of your Soul

Submitted by Open on Sat, 08/24/2013 - 05:59

These are extraordinary times of great change and upheaval. Many things we've come to rely upon, the establishments and systems in society, even the very foundations of the reality we've believed in, are beginning to crumble. So in an environment of such turmoil, who and what can you really trust in? Gone are the times when a great saviour - a Messiah - has come to 'save the day'. These are times of the past. Now is the time to put faith in your own soul. Yes of course, other people can reflect back to you your gifts, they can empathise and catalyse, but they are not your gurus. They may point towards a Gateway, but only you can walk through it. Only you are the Captain of your Soul...

Unwinding Inner Identities as an 'Engine' for Enlightenment

Submitted by Open on Mon, 06/10/2013 - 09:54

Due to disruptive nature of society, it's probably the case that with most, the lower self is separated from higher spiritual awareness at a pretty early age. Whether it be the programmed and conditioning behaviours of our parents, excito-toxins in our food or the electro-smog of modern day gadgetry, effectively the soul is fragmented into the bodymind and a barrier inserted to higher dimensional beingness. Our divine birth right is truncated. Most hardly notice the downgrading effect. That is until one day, we're reunited with multi-dimensionality, realise the profound blessing and embark on a path of realignment, reunification and at-one-ment with the divine. How might we catalyse this reharmonisation?...

Activating the Power of Higher Mind

Submitted by Open on Wed, 07/18/2012 - 08:47

How to manifest authentically
Consciousness and matter are the same thing: we shape and change matter from what we're being within. In some teachings though, we feel this ancient truth has been taken a step too far; trying to shape circumstances to manifest a new, apparently more desirable reality. There's simply no need to do this. Our higher selves, intune with the Divine Design are already shaping a far more miraculous, far more harmonious and far more loving reality than ego could ever dream of. And all we have to do is open to Higher Mind and bring that authentic dream into reality. So how does authentic creating from Higher Mind really work?...

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'...

The Cosmic Role of the Spiritual Catalyst

Submitted by Open on Thu, 08/25/2011 - 06:31

Some souls have incarnated here to hold an energetic harmony which provides empathic support for evolving people. Others however, have come with the specific 'mission' to break down illusions and inspire change by the very energy they hold. Such people may be called "Spiritual Catalysts". They’ll frequently find they have a confrontational affect on their environment and especially the people in it: you begin to undermine the very illusions society has been built upon. Life for the Spiritual Catalyst can be very challenging, until you learn how to integrate the full complement of energies we have; and how to utilise that energy with gentle sophistication, but definitely without dilution...
