Do You Have What It Takes to Ascend?

Do You have what it takes to Ascend

It’s a bit like falling off a log.

To some, embarking on the Spiritual Path, contemplating ascension into the Higher Paradigm, I know it can seem like a tall order, other-worldly, out-of-sight. People often ask me ‘do I have what it takes to ascend?’ The very fact that you’re asking the question suggests ‘Yes indeed!’ Anyone can ascend,  specifically;

Continually evolving on an ascending vibration back to the Source.

Every soul is seeded to do this. In fact ascension is a bit like falling off a log. You just have to let go. Then anyone can do it (in fact it’s more like ‘undoing’).  Although falling off that proverbial log can sometimes seem like a monumental leap of faith…

A Leap of Faith

This great leap, of course, is not that simple is it?  If it was, everyone would be doing it!

You have to know what to let go of. Where is the attachment felt inside?

Then, if you have the courage and the commitment to be “all-in”, all you really need is one open statement to the universe…

“Show me!”

The universe will respond. It is configured to respond. That’s its purpose – to reveal  the One  to itself through the streaming experiences of your soul.  There is literally nothing else going on in the universe… ever!

Pandora’s Box

So if you’re ready for that level of commitment, just make the statement… “show me!” Then situations will configure to reveal your attachments felt as resistance to the path and tightness.  You just have to  get into the tightness  and figure out what you’re hanging on for – why do you need it to be a particular way?

But be really sure  before  you make the statement. Because once you do, it’s like taking the lid off Pandora’s Box: there’s no going back – there’s no ‘blue pill’!  Having lifted the lid, you can try to deny what you’re seeing, but the pull through the heart gets ever louder. When you can let go into your resistance, progressively you’ll fall off the log and into centre stream. Then you’re simply riding the flow – and it feels like heaven!

Take a Chance

I share this video below called “Take A  Chance”, because I find it really inspiring – it’s about diving in and doing what you love. There’s the slight suggestion in it, about doing what you love as a means to gaining something. But when you ask the universe “show me”, it won’t show you how to achieve a particular outcome. The difference (which we reflect in the  Openhand approach)  is doing what you love, for no other reason than it makes your heart sing.  Then, the universe  will show you how to be more of you, by being who you are, in doing what you love. That way, you build an incredible  feedback loop of energy. It takes you into centre stream. You can’t help but ascend… it’s just like falling off a log!

From my heart to yours,

About the author:

OpenOpenhand  is the name we give to a highly evolved benevolent consciousness that has been around since the dawning of time. It is that energy which works within the weave of the fabric of life, helping to unravel blockages, rebalance disharmony and bring greater enlightenment to the universe. It works as a synchronistic mirror, revealing what is holding us back and how we can take the next evolutionary step.

My soul is intimately connected with the higher dimensions where I find myself in communion with this benevolent presence most of the time. We ‘speak’ through the language of telepathic synchronicity: plain knowing of signs and symbols, an intuitive, objective interpretation of the flow of the moment which helps me understand and realise the various underlying impulses that are activating and influencing people’s lives here in the lower realm.  The Openhand Foundation works on behalf of this energy, helping ground its presence in this realm.
