Living Spirituality in Daily Life:
A new paradigm is emerging as the old fear based reality breaks down. If we can begin to live this new sense of beingness more and more, then increasingly this New Paradigm becomes our reality.

These articles and points of view, are all about activating seeds of awareness that may encourage you to live more accordingly to your higher self, and to shine that forth in the world around you for more successful, joyful, harmonious and fulfilled living ...



Super Seed Energy Balls with hemp, pumpkin seed, flax and sunflower seeds

Submitted by Trinity on Wed, 08/16/2017 - 06:43

Move over nuts! Seeds are the holy grail of plant-foods. They're tiny, shy and little - easily over looked and ignored - or at best, used as a salad garnish. Most people prefer nuts (I guess because of their more seductive taste and bite-sizedness). But, let me shout from the hilltops my friends...

"Seeds are some of natures best superfoods".

In the true use of the term superfood, they are nutrient packed powerhouses, concentrated, with some of nature's finest sustenance.

How does time in nature transform our energy field and heal us?

Have you ever noticed how good you feel after going for a walk in nature? Or how relaxed you feel when sitting down in a park, pottering in a garden, walking barefoot on the beach or even sitting on a lawn? There's something about connecting with the Earth that harmonises our internal rhythms, induces inner-peace and recharges us.

Embracing Curiosity on the Spiritual Journey

Submitted by Fiona Reilly on Wed, 08/09/2017 - 07:21

Recently I have been valuing the simplicity of being curious. By being curious I mean actively engaging with our innate enthusiasm for wonder, discovery and learning. It includes seeing and appreciating the magic and miracles that continually surround us. Just consider how a young child engages with their surroundings and how absorbed they are in life and discovering more about themselves and the world in which they find themselves. Curiosity is a process of inquiry and a continuous exploration...

Maca Smoothie for Natural Hormone Balance by Trinity

Submitted by Trinity on Thu, 08/03/2017 - 18:41

Maca has been one of those foods that have made a big difference in my life. I swear by the stuff! Like many of us, I am somewhat sensitive to the hormonal shifts in my body, feeling every nuance of these ebbs and flows. I also pop into 'fight or flight' mode easily - it's just the way I'm made. I feel overwhelmed in crowds. I feel everyone's stuff. My 'time of the month' always used to feel like a plunge into the fiery depths.

Growing World Fire...Let Souls Soar like the Pheonix

Submitted by Open on Fri, 07/28/2017 - 07:51

Yet again summer has been dry as a bone in much of Europe, igniting wild fires in France, Portugal and Spain, forcing thousands to flee, as in the popular holiday destination of Saint Tropez. And in California, record-breaking heat and fierce Santa Ana winds have caused thousands to flee their homes. As in many other places around the globe, the weather is becoming nothing short of biblical. As strange as it may at first sound, and whilst feeling deep love and empathy for those affected, how can spiritual people turn these drastic events into a positive?

What can we learn?

Overcoming Fear by Embracing Death: Unity Vs. Individuality

Submitted by Richard W on Wed, 07/26/2017 - 07:25

So far in this series of articles on overcoming fear, we've explored how each fear can be traced to a fear of death and also, how our 'web of identity' affects the way we approach our fear. Now, let's go deeper still into the caverns of who we are and look at the source pain behind our fear of death. Whether a final death or an every day challenge to our sense of self, it confronts our identity causing us to be afraid. Thus we often cling to certain traits/identities within us when others are challenged, especially our world view and belief system. It's been shown over and over again that when reminded of our fear of death, we react generously to those who reinforce our beliefs and harshly to those who call our beliefs into question.

It means a lot to me, to nurture our guests on retreat here at Openhand!

During our latest Facilitator Summer School adventure, somewhere in the Wiltshire 'crop circle' countryside - high vibe cuisine was happening in abundance. If you were there, then you have already experienced these Mango Ice Cream Bars!

Finding Lightness of Heart in Abrupt Accelerating Climate Change

Submitted by Open on Sat, 07/15/2017 - 08:01

An Iceberg the size of Trinidad and Tobago has just broken off the Antarctic Ice Shelf. Personally I find this deeply significant in the Great 5D Shift - only a couple of years ago, plenty in the spiritual mainstream were pointing to the growth in Antarctic Ice to deny that Climate Change was warming the planet. I know this is 'inconvenient'. I know it's not the kind of thing you necessarily want to read about. But, as evolving people, I believe it's utterly essential to take note. We must attain higher dimensional consciousness by transcending the lower ones - we can do it, and there's nothing to fear. Such circumstances will serve to make us stronger and more complete...

What's the REAL Solution to Looming Environmental Catastrophe?

Submitted by Open on Thu, 07/13/2017 - 06:57


With escalating regularity a factual event now occurs in the world that shocks you awake. Like the fact that society is now consuming over 1 million plastic bottles per minute. Yes, just digest that for one moment before moving on. By 2021, that'll amount to half a trillion bottles per year - are such figures even comprehendable by the human mind? Well put it this way, at this rate, by 2050, the ocean will contain more plastic bottles than fish! Where is this all heading? What's the wider message about the society we're living in? What's the REAL solution to this insanity? Only a spiritual shift in consciousness can save mankind now...

Hemp Hummus for Conscious Eating by Trinity

Submitted by Trinity on Thu, 06/29/2017 - 07:53

High vibrational foods can help to expand our consciousness; help us feel the inter-connectivity of all life; help us to remember who we truly are and make us increasingly aware of ourselves on a soul level.

These foods can also help to look after us on a physical level; to nourish our physical vehicle (and emotional/mental vehicles) so that we have a healthy body into which our vibrant soul can infuse.
