From Absolute Freedom ‘Rightness’ Happens

For me, the only place to begin any moment is from the place of absolute freedom. By that I mean to drop into the void of pure presence. I experience it as total liberation from all. It has no sense of obligation, no worry, fear or tightness. Close your eyes.

Imagine meditating on top of a mountain, clear skies above you, the earth down below, brilliant orange sunshine, its rays piercing whitened clouds then caressing your face, the faintest cool breeze enlivening your skin…

From this place of absolute freedom, I find all else that is simply ‘right’ just flows. I don’t have to effort, shape or manifest. Divine manifestation happens through me. Engagements with people then either amplify mine and their souls or else bring filtering layers closer into view. To me this is what I mean by ‘rightness’ – I observe it ultimately brings the situation to greater harmony or at least it is the only thing that has the potential to do that. To bring lasting peace.

So in the past, if ever I’ve found I wasn’t truly in that space, there came a point when I realised there was nothing else to do, no where else to begin, other than finding that space once more. And how did I do that?

I discovered that wherever I got frustrated, tight, fearful, worried or in need of some kind of outcome in the external drama, that if I stopped in that very moment and explored the tightness inside, then I could soften the effects of it by surrendering into it. If I stayed open and receptive to the benevolent messages of the universe, I’d get an insight into why I was tight and what it was I thought I needed.

Then I could deeply question whether I truly did need that outcome. Whether I could live without it. What was the worst that could happen by not getting it? What was the situation revealing to me about how I could become more complete and whole?

I discovered I could truly penetrate the tightness and with my consciousness, let go through it. This would cause the tightness to unwind and unravel. I discovered this as true alchemy, something that could truly change who I was. I’d open into the void of infinite potential, then rightness would simply happen.

It did require inordinate levels of trust (which I built over time) because people in the world tend not to work from that place. They tend to have goals and agendas which conflict with the natural flow, people who are needy. But there came a point when I realised that if I placated these false agendas, then I was not offering the possibility for them to find truth. I was simply perpetuating the falsehood. So I stopped doing it.

It leads to the most incredible sense of freedom. Expansiveness. Emptiness. Crystal clear clarity. There is nothing like it. Nowhere else to begin.

It’s there inside every single one of us. All we have to do is stop what we’re doing and look for it. Then from this absolute freedom, rightness will simply happen. What else is truly worthwhile?

About the author:

I am a Higher Dimensional Walk-in. I came into this incarnation back in 2002 around the circumstances of a life threatening car crash. With the previous soul I had a sacred agreement that I would help fulfil his destiny of Ascension and in so doing, we established the  Five Gateways  route map to benefit others in their spiritual evolution. In return, I have had a full familiarisation as to the complex and challenging situation Humanity faces right now here on Earth. It has prepared me to assist in the catalytic shift of consciousness here.

My soul is now centred in the higher dimensions where I find myself in communion with a benevolent presence acting through the weave of life which I call “Openhand”. Working with this energy through the field, means I can energetically highlight blockages, help dissolve karma and activate beingness within people simply by sitting in meditative communion with them. It’s a divine gift that fills my heart and inspires the  Openhand work.
