What is 'Spirituality'?

Here we're exploring the concept of general spirituality. What does it mean to be spiritual? How do we live in a spiritual way, within society? How might being aligned with your spirituality, bring a greater sense of joy and fulfillment to your life?

We're offering points of view here, which we believe in passionately. But we're not claiming them to be the 'absolute truth' - it is our truth, designed to help catalyse an evolutionary shift in your own truth. To us, that's a key facet of the spirit - that each has their own perspective on reality, which are all equally valid. But let us challenge and continually evolve our perspective.

In so doing, we find it brings us increasingly into alignment with the natural flow of the universe. Life becomes increasingly aligned and sublime. Explore...

Understanding the Nature of Risk on the Spiritual Path

Submitted by Open on Mon, 09/18/2017 - 07:10

There will come a point on the spiritual path where there's nothing for it but to risk all. It's when you hit the edge of ultimate freedom - to begin to walk the blade edge of life. The soul wants to flow as freedom. It doesn't calculate (as the ego) what is logical, safe, or will gain the best practical outcome. It is yearning to be forged by the crucible of life into something immortal, beyond fear and limitation. Not that the soul doesn't have boundaries, not that it doesn't blend into rigid realities, it does. But it's purpose is always to be the expression of the unbounded, unconstrained, fearlessness of the One. That's why there will come a point on the path to risk all...

How to Make the Best Spiritual Choices in Life?

Submitted by Open on Wed, 09/06/2017 - 06:53

How you experience and enjoy your life - whether it becomes fulfilling - depends, of course, on the choices you make. How often do you find yourself trying to figure out what's the best choice to make? But what if, at one level - that of the ego - choice is merely a complex illusion of conditioning? And beyond that, what if there's a way of aligning with your soul that then delivers the best choices possible? It's my observation in the Openhand work, then when people break through the illusion of choice that the ego creates, and when they align with the soul's mainstream flow, life really takes off in the most magical of ways: you're constantly blessed with miracles. Here's an exploration then, of how you might make the most aligned choices in life...

Exploding Fear in 5 Steps...Liberate Yourself in Any Given Situation

Submitted by Open on Mon, 08/28/2017 - 07:12

Fear is what so frequently holds people back on the spiritual path. Fear of what might happen if you take a certain step. Fear of completely letting go and where that might lead. Fear of hurting others by being truly authentic. Fear invades the mind, emotions and body. But to simply 'over-write it' with positive thinking, positive intentions or infusing 'love and light' leads only more layers of identity. The liberated free flow of the soul is not something you intention, or create by a veneer of gloss. It just is, and it simply arises when we open the space for it. And when the soul invites authentic choice, that's when fear is likely to arise. So how do you deal with it most effectively?...

How Do You Truly Change Your Life Situation?

Submitted by Open on Mon, 08/14/2017 - 07:41

Sometimes you're going to hit a 'brick wall' on the spiritual path, and in life in general. Maybe you've reached a crossroads in your career, a relationship or general living circumstances and you don't know how to move forwards? This happens to many - on the Openhand work, we encounter it time and again. In the 5D Shift taking place, your very being is transforming, to a different way of creating, sometimes without even knowing it. So the old rules of the old world reality simply don't work anymore. You've got to find an entirely new way of creating. Then things will start to quickly unfold for you in a much more productive way and magical. Here's how...

We Are Earth Bound Misfits Learning to Fly

Submitted by Open on Mon, 05/29/2017 - 05:39


Yes, levitation is possible. What it requires is mastery of the illusion of physicality, by penetrating the unity consciousness of the soul, into every cell of apparent separation of the body. That's a tall order one might reasonably consider! But there's masses to be gained even by venturing down the path in that general direction. What we're talking about is transcendence - you feel into the density of the body, normalising with it so as not to judge it as something solid and separate. Then you can attune to the light flowing into it, which turns the volume up on your interconnected experience. Progressively all manner of miracles and magic take off...

The Path Less Traveled...And How to Tackle It

Submitted by Open on Sun, 05/21/2017 - 05:22

Are you one of those always searching for the deeper meaning of the moment to ignite your life? Plenty say they are, but then the Path Less Traveled is littered with people who fell by the wayside, those who took the soft, comfortable option of staying where they are. But if you're reading this, then for sure at the heart of you, is a burning light, that although may get stuck in a lay-by from time to time, is yearning to return to the highway, to be a constant flaming brilliance, all the time, as a way of living. So what does it really mean to be walking this "Path Less Traveled?" How might you be inspired to continue, when all around often seem conforming and constricted?

The Revelation of YOU - unleashing Authentic Beingness into the World

Submitted by Open on Wed, 04/19/2017 - 06:53

I’ve just completed Openhand’s highly successful 5GATEWAYS world tour (phew, what a ride!). I met many wonderful people, stepping out of this crazy screwed up 3D society, with such humility, beauty, softness, empathy, courage and will. I feel so blessed to be working with the ascending group of souls - you melt my heart. One thing that seems common to just about all of you, is how challenging you find it in society just being you - that society seems to undermine pure authentic beingness. So it does. But there is a way to work through it. It’s about opening a space through the contractions you might feel and looking carefully for the threads of beingness that are wanting to come through. I call the approach Openway...

Secret of Life: It's all about the Flow

Submitted by Open on Thu, 03/23/2017 - 19:00

I'm traveling around the world at the moment, sharing the Openhand Philosophy on life, and I find myself on a stopover in Hawaii, on my way to the US West Coast. Hawaii of course is considered a paradisiacal destination - sun, sea, sand and surf. This morning I was out early on the beach, catching the waves myself, but not surfing ones, these were waves of my soul. With each breath, each movement in deep consciousness, the unleashing of soul became ever more blissful. As I watched the surfers working hard to catch each wave, I was feeling life can be so straightforward if we allow it to. We don't have to effort and struggle at all; in fact that just takes us away from the heavenly nirvana which is in everyone's reach...

How to Follow Your Path of Light through the Accelerating 5D Shift

Submitted by Open on Sun, 03/12/2017 - 04:08

It's a challenging world out there no doubt. And it's getting more challenging by the day as the 3D world consciousness gets decidedly wobbly. If you're still trying to shape and control the old reality in some particular way, or are dependent on it going in a specific direction that provides resources and support, then think again. We must find a new way of being and creating. Conversely, if we can align with the shift into the higher 5D paradigm, we're going to find all our manifestations supported. How do you make the switch? What's involved? Here's how to follow the path of light through it all...

Lightwarriors Fear Not What is Happening to You...Everything is Perfect!

Submitted by Open on Mon, 02/06/2017 - 08:25

Here at Openhand we're truly blessed to connect with kindred spirits in the awakening movement around the world. Whilst we're all on a unique path, so many of your stories bear the hallmarks of similarity: many of you are looking at the mess humanity has gotten itself into and wondering how we're going to find passage to a new shore. To me, everything is going perfectly according to the divine unfolding. Yes there's certainly more instability on the way, yes climate change is accelerating and yes natural resources are dwindling and getting ever more expensive. The system is looking ever more crazy and outlandish by the minute. But things have to break down in order for the new to emerge...
