‘I am a purveyor of stories. I dive into the mysteries of life, into the magic of our journey, and the playfulness of the human spirit. I seek the wisdom of goddesses, animals, angels, natural oracles, crows, and humans, too.

‘My stories touch the edge of tenderness and courage.

‘I invite you to discover the vast world of the Great Lands, the Fated, my retelling of fairy tales & myths, and my original fables. I promise to explore further, deeper, wider — with a brave heart, guiding you to the edge of experience.’

Anger – A Key to Power and Drive

Martha Dunlop How To, New to This, Ready for More 1 Comment

Dr Seuss has it licked in ‘The Places You’ll Go’. He knows just how self work runs. Sometimes:
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

Then come the days when:

‘you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.’
Anger drives some amazing ‘slumps’. Feelings rise up and take us by surprise. How irritating is this – we just want clearing, not more rage. It’s tempting to wheel out the positive affirmations and focus on what’s good. Except that anger has so much power wrapped up in it. If we keep damping it down we lose out.

Energy Reading for July: Breaking Open the Heart Chakra

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

You have been undergoing a period of explosive change, where the unexpected has become the norm. This feels very destabilising to many, maybe most. And yet it is a period of change that is spectacular in its scale, and far reaching in its benefits. The benefits may seem unreachable at this point, but you will see large scale change and transformation in the governmental bodies and structures that underpin your societies, as you move forward into a new age.
During this last month of June, there has been a series of occurrences that have elicited responses from the general populations that are perhaps not as those in power would have expected. Light has been shone where there would have been darkness. There has been outrage where there would have been silence. There has been compassion where there would have been hate. This is a monumental shift in reaction, in consciousness, in awareness of those around you, and of the plight that others endure. This is a shift towards collective consciousness, because those of you who watch, are experiencing these happenings at a heart level as though they impacted your lives on a personal basis. This is a collective opening of the heart chakra, a widening of sensitivity and awareness, and of allowing in the greater part of your soul.

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.
