I've been out traveling and camping on Dartmoor in South West England, opening an inner space that new creativity may flow in for the New Year. It's inspired me to start a new Forum Thread here for everyone to share what happens when you go into stillness and inquire within. My gift is being able to offer an intuitive reflection, so I'll happily offer one if you'd like the feedback.
Openhand Blog Spot
Okay folks, roll up, roll up. What stimulates your inquiry right now? What's going on in your life and what are you exploring into? Come pull up a pew and share a blog with us all. You never know what you might get back!
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.
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:
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).
Hi Open! Namaste:)
I have been a consistent reader and follower of Openhand since past few years. Whenever I have had doubts you have always guided me. I am so thankful for the universe that I am guided by a master hand of yours. Thank you immensely.
Oh man I'm so gutted beautiful Chester has passed from linkin park. His words and ability to express his pain has got me through many of stages of the cross. Had to share this video. With much respect to him.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
For months I have had upper back pain but it is on and off. It seems to sync with stress. Recently I have had hot tingly sensations moving up and down where the pain would normally be. I usually get these sensations when I bring my awareness into reality from a place of just being. I still get the pain on and off too. I have tried using the mediations from the breakthrough course for it but no luck. I have asked 'show me'and asked benevolent guidance for help but nothing. I'm processing other stuff just fine but this leaves me feeling confused.
