Energy Reading for June 2017, New Solutions to Old Problems

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More Leave a Comment

The cards for June show a big month. With four out of four cards in the Major Arcana, we are focused very much on the Big Picture, whether global or personal. This is a karmic moment that is key on the path we came here for. One main message kept coming through, that we are undergoing a process of finding new solutions to old problems. This starts with the Hangman, a card of rising above the mundane, stepping out of the norm and looking at life from a new perspective. The Hangman suggests that whether or not we find this process comfortable, it will be a time when we are able to step into higher wisdom, to transcend patterns which have previously held us back. It suggests that we learn to observe ourselves and the world from a greater distance, to find a new place of acceptance and understanding.

Exploring Starseeds

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More Leave a Comment

I first encountered the idea of Starseeds through Dolores Cannon. She talked about souls who had never incarnated on Earth before, coming in a wave to bring a new energy to Earth and help the Ascension process. At the time I found the idea interesting but moved on. Recently though, the subject starting coming up. I was asked to write a blog on it, people started posting about Lemurian starseed crystals, a friend brought it up with me, it was coming at me from all over the place. To me, this is a message, and so I took the bait and started digging. Much has been written about Starseeds, and there is plenty you can look up if you would like to absorb what has been said before. My personal approach is to meditate to see what is relevant for me at this particular time, and to see how it resonates with me. I got myself a lemurian starseed quartz which I love and I began to meditate on what the message was for me, and why I needed to connect to this idea.

Imagination: How differently do we experience reading?

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 2 Comments

I have a fascination with what happens in people’s minds when they read. So this week I have a video where I talk about how my imagination interacts with the process of reading, as well as a survey so you can tell me how it works for you. The survey is short so please do join in, and let me know what reading is to you. And let me know if you would like to be quoted.

Self Reflection: An Alternative to Blame

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More Leave a Comment

Why is self-awareness so important? Imagine, someone is annoying you. They’ve been getting on your nerves for weeks. You know they’re just being themselves, but even though they’re not living up to your ideals, you feel judged by them and that drives you crazy. Or maybe a friend has enormous potential but they’re not fulfilling it, and the waste makes you want to cry. Perhaps someone close to you can’t see that their other half is taking advantage of them, using them or betraying them. You’re angry with this person, because they’re messing things up, and when you’re around them, your mood drops, leaving you stressed and unable to function properly. Yes, maybe you’re an empath and their energy is impacting you. Of course we pick up on other people’s negativity and limiting beliefs, and as spiritual types, we tend to put a lot of effort into protecting ourselves. But we can’t protect ourselves from our own stuff.

Out of Body Experience, An Interview with Christy Sheehan

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Tell me a story. How did you get started with out of body experiences?
My earliest memory of out of body experience was when I was 4 yrs old. I would consciously awaken once I was out of my body and would fly out of my window to the front yard, where I would then fly to the top of our tall oak tree and hold on to the branches while I looked out over the city lights. All through my childhood years I did this never straying further than the front yard.

Energy Reading for April-May, Letting Go

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 2 Comments

You are now moving from a period of extreme release. In these recent weeks you have been challenged and presented with patterns, old and new, which have held you back and restricted your movement into this new energy. These patterns have arisen as a part of your journey. Their release is important for your step into this new energy of manifestation. Many have been resisting the release of these patterns, and there is currently a residue of energy surrounding your planet. This is being felt by many sensitives, who are experiencing overwhelm from the intrusion of this collective energy into their own, ever more sensitivity, energy fields. As some of you increase in awareness and sensitivity, and others resist the change, you experience a conflict between those who are absorbing more and more from the world around them, and those who are creating a bigger and bigger fog of negative energy in their surrounding areas.

What Is Energy Work?

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 2 Comments

I was asked this recently and it made me pause. To me, energy work is what I do, it’s what we all do when we participate in this spiritual dance with purpose and intent, but it can be done in a more conscious way than that. And I realised I don’t hear so many people talking about it. A friend recently told me she didn’t consider herself a healer, but rather an energy worker. To me, healing is a form of energy work that is focused on the body and emotions, but energy work can also be so much more than that. It can involve looking at old patterns, it can mean a process of clearing energies from people, places and institutions. It can be looking at your past in this life and others, and addressing recurring issues. Energy work can mean clearing blockages for others, helping their chakras to spin freely, helping them to raise their vibration. Or it can mean working at a global level to help raise the vibration of the planet, to help in the wake of emergencies or to focus on unity. Energy work is not bound by time or place. It can be done anywhere, at any time, and sent to the time and place it is needed. Energy work is what we, as Lightworkers, do.
