Facing the Fear: Dealing with Crisis

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 6 Comments

It’s easy to be positive when life is going well. But where does the Law of Attraction leave you when life is tough: When a loved one has cancer, when you’ve been robbed, when you’re losing your job and you’re downright scared? We talk a lot about the opposition of love and fear. The aim is to live through love, and not let fear guide us. I totally believe that, and I try hard to do it every day, but there are times that fear can serve us, or that we are going to feel it anyway and need to honour it. I feel the trick to facing a crisis from a spiritual point of view, lies in the way you approach fear, not whether or not you feel it.

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the importance of looking inside for answers.

The Time of the Hermit: Seeking Answers Within

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 10 Comments

With five planets currently in retrograde, I am feeling the pull to halt my journey out into the world and retreat inwards. The last few months have been wonderful, exciting, enjoyable and immensely full on. I have said yes over and over again. I have done things that terrified me and given freely of my energy. I have loved it. But now I am really seeing the shift. As I keep saying yes, I notice my body is whispering no in my ear. While I type, I can see the image of the Hermit tarot card in my minds eye. The Hermit knows wisdom is to be found within, through a connection to the divine in each and every one of us.
