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.

Activating the Power of Higher Mind

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'...

Being an Empath

Submitted by Trinity on Wed, 05/09/2012 - 09:54

Unfolding the Higher Paradigm Imagine being able to feel and sense everything, whether positive or negative around you, 24/7. An Empath can’t turn off empathy (unlike someone who is perhaps 'empathising'). It is possibly one of the most challenging of psychic gifts to master. I am an Empath who has spent nearly two decades, since awakening, mastering my empathic nature. It is an ongoing process. I am still not perfect and not sure that I ever will be whilst incarnated here. I am however content, despite the challenges of integration, as I see it as an incredible gift to humanity...

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...
