The 5D Ascension Interrelated Stages

Openhand Stage 2: 5GATEWAYS

5GATEWAYS is a profound route map for spiritual evolution, handed down through the aeons by the masters, which is only now making its way into humanity’s collective consciousness. It helps you perceive your life as a journey of Enlightenment, expanding greatly your sense of inner peace, unfolding authentic beingness, bringing great success and fulfillment. In understanding and applying it to your life, helps remove uncertainty, clarifies your true destiny, and helps you unfold that. It can catalyse your next evolutionary leap.

5GATEWAYS is Stage 2 of Openhand’s 5D Ascension Program.

There are many ways up the spiritual mountain, for each there is a unique pathway. Yet we’ll all pass similar ‘altitudes’ as we ascend to the summit. There are 5 key expansions leading to this Enlightenment. How does the Inner Child Identity relate, how do you activate kundalini and process karma? In understanding how these interrelate into a framework, helps illuminate why you’re experiencing what you are and how to unwind through. 5GATEWAYS has helped thousands of people around the world since its inception in 2007.

What are the 5GATEWAYS?

In this framework, a gateway is a marked expansion of consciousness where you shift from one vibrational state into a higher one. It usually comes with a major shift in the outer circumstances of your life, which is not only tremendously liberating, but can be exceptionally challenging too. Hence by understanding what might be going on for you, in relation to a common journey people through the ages have experienced, can greatly ease the path.

Here then is a summary of the 5 expansions, the 5GATEWAYS:


Gateway 1: Awakening

Awakening to the mainstream of soul.

Gateway 2: Realignment

Switching to the governance of the soul in daily life.

Gateway 3: Transfiguration

Unification of lower and higher self through Kundalini Activation.

Gateway 4: Enlightenment

Processing out all past life karma for full soul integration and experience of The One.

Gateway 5: Resurrection

Activating your higher bodily vehicles of expression leading to full multidimensionality.

The Openway Spiritual Compass

You’ll also require to hone your ‘spiritual compass’ for day-to-day decision making coming from the soul. This leads to greater soul integration, moving through Gateway 2, leading to a more fulfilling, successful and abundant life. For this Openhand provides the compass attunement method, Openway:

  • There is a natural flow behind all events in life, which if you can follow, leads to great success and fulfillment
  • The universe works tirelessly to reveal your profound beingness; it reflects through mirrors you draw to yourself
  • “Openway” is a unique spiritual approach, to help you understand the often conflicting reflections felt within
  • It’s about attuning your spiritual compass, setting sail with the direction of your soul, unleashing it through your life
  • It dissolves karmic density, as you follow your evolutionary journey through the 5GATEWAYS, into the New Paradigm.

We help people apply the 5GATEWAYS routemap and Openway spiritual compass at our gatherings.
