Animals in our lives as Spirit guides catalysing 'Evolution'

This is an invitation for inquiry into your animal spirit guides in your life. From the Robin in your garden to the Snail in your plot. From the Lioness in the Savanas to the spider in your barn. From the dog you are the guardian of to the seagull roaming the skies.

This is my very recent story that sparked this inquiry:

The Void As Creative Potential

I read Open's post tonight about the void being infinite potential and not having a pre-ordained path. I was then at my meditation spot doing some creative writing (song lyrics are the thing right now - working with a couple local musicians that flowed into my path). It has been just amazing for me lately as I have been going through some major expansions after source pain being processed. I used to get bursts of spontaneous writing but now it seems like if I am just open and quite in that void (or the limited amount that I experience) it's like getting pinged with the next line.

Overcoming Spiritual Pride

Dear Openhand Community,

It's been a year since I last wrote anything on the Forums.  I had a dream last night about going to an Openhand workshop, which has prompted me to write again.

I sometimes struggle with thoughts & feelings of spiritual pride, & it bothers me when these are present, as I feel that I shouldn't have them, that they are wrong in some way, & I wonder how I can stop them, or move beyond them more quickly.

This morning I experienced a wave of spiritual pride, & was having thoughts such as:

Solar Eclipse 2017

I was wondering the Openhand perspective on solar eclipses. Intuitively to me, it feels like a gateway/opportunity to lose what no longer serves and embrace a new way of being.

This particular coming solar eclipse on August 21 seems to be especially interesting as it coincides with new moon. Also according to the short video by the Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom, this one seems special as it starts in north west of Pacific waters (mention of Lemuria) and ends over Canaries (remnants of Atlantida).

Imbalance (off kilter)

I don’t think I have every started a topic, but I see lots of brave souls posting on the Openhead site, so here goes….
I have seen a common theme in people’s awaking and soul journey where they say they have felt apart from others around them, not really fitting in. For me I have always felt this way, as though I am present, but slightly off kilter with people around me. It is hard for me to put this into words, but the analogy I can use is square pegs and round holes, but for me it is more an oval peg in a round hole. Nearly there, but not quite.

Your synchroncity of the day

OK - here's one JUST FOR FUN!

We all love synchronicity. It comes in all sorts of ways. Sometimes it's life changing; at other times it's the universe having a good old laugh; and then there's the gorgeous synchronicity where it feels like the cosmos is giving you a big etheric hug.

Whatever it is please do feel free to share your 'synchronicity of the day' here below...

Standing Rock

I was really touched by this video and accompanying music. The pain and injustice around what is currently happening at Standing Rock and throughout the world brought me to tears. It felt positive to connect with that pain and sadness as up to this point I had been comfortably avoiding confronting it at any deep level. On Saturday 3pm Central time and 9pm in the UK people are joining in prayer for the situation there and I will be joining in... perhaps you will feel to too. With love and hope, Fiona...

Sharing our passion

Open, you asked me to follow up after being a guest speaker at a local community group. This seems like a good place to post this! I was the guest speaker today at a local non-denominational church. The topic given to me was the mystery of the phoenix in the context of plunging into the creative fire and finding union in separation. I acknowledged from the outset that I would be sharing Openhand's philosophy and approach to letting go of our baggage and becoming the One.

Conscious Sleeping

An exploration of staying conscious during the night and what that means.

This thread is inspired by Tulip's discourse with Open about staying conscious during the night. As Open pointed out, when we fall asleep we vacate our bodies, opening ourselves up to many spurious energies, which affect us when we wake in the morning.

Feeling the tightness; how to express it?


Firstly I would like to thank you for all the work you have been sharing. I feel I have really benefited from it.

I have got a question with regards to expressing feelings emotions etc (I have difficulty right now on how to express myself). I read many times in your articles Open you write about feeling through the tightness and expressing it. While I have made a lot of progress from somatic psychotherapy, and I can now feel sensations in my body, what I find difficult to apply is to express what needs to be expressed.
