Let’s Manifest: Create the World You Want

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 9 Comments

If there was ever a time to manifest, it’s now. The world has changed. The inevitable has fled and suddenly anything seems possible. In this energy of intense possibility, it is down to every single one of us to step up now and focus on manifesting the world we personally want to live in. With this in mind, I would like to invite you to join me at 7pm (BST) each day, to meditate or pray on creating a kinder world. This is not about who you voted for, it’s about working together to build a positive future for all.

Living with Flow: A New Comfort Zone

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 6 Comments

This week has seen a big shift in energy. At the Solstice we moved from the busy and sociable world of Gemini into the fluid and sensitive realm of Cancer. This is always a big change, but at the moment, with such huge energy shifts taking place, it carries particular weight. We have moved from airy thought energy into a water based, heart-centred approach. At this time it can feel as though we have been cracked open, as though we are a raw nerve, waiting to be triggered by every passing knock. On the other hand, it open us more completely to our intuitions, allowing in guidance and an opportunity to expand our connection to the Universe. Change is a major theme right now. Many people are considering new paths in life, and others are facing upheaval and cataclysmic personal shifts. Change is the most glorious and terrifying force we face in this life. It can tear our lives apart and lift us into an existence we never thought possible.

The Alchemy of Creation

Martha Dunlop Book Chat, Fiction, New to This, Ready for More 11 Comments

I am a self-professed control freak. Most of us are. Truly. Deep down. After all, we were sold on a belief of earning our keep. Reward through persistent struggle. Anything worth having requires a fight. Push hard. Be industrious. Sweat it out and get to heaven. Eventually. These beliefs served our species for a long time. Keeping us alive and our society growing. They were hard won beliefs. And in my life, offered a way through many tough times. Rewarding me with scholarships, friends, and careers. In the last few years, I noticed a big shift. A call to a different way of creating.

Self-Care: Serenity in a Chaotic World

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 11 Comments

We all know we should look after ourselves, but how often do we actually follow through? I am writing a book, writing a blog, keeping up with social media, and living a life outside of the written word. It’s tough to get all of that done in 24 hours, so self-care often goes out the window. Worse than that, because I feel like I never have enough time to focus on any one thing, I judge myself. Can anyone relate to that? Yes, I thought so. A few days ago I had a Reiki session and I had a strong message come through about self-care. In fact, I was told that our habit of expecting too much, and judging ourselves when we fail, is in fact a form of self-harm.

Avalon: Myth, Magic & the Divine Feminine

Martha Dunlop Book Chat, Fiction, Ready for More 13 Comments

I’ve always loved the Mists of Avalon, Marian Zimmer Bradley’s most famous book. I read it as a teenager and it took me to a different reality, one that has always stayed with me. I remember being distinctly disappointed that Priestess of Avalon wasn’t an actual job I could aim for. I haven’t read the book in years, but recently I have found myself being drawn back into thoughts of Avalon and the Triple Goddess that lies at the heart of the story. I’ve also had a hankering to make my first visit to Glastonbury, and I don’t mean the music festival. But what is the draw? And what did Marion Zimmer Bradley tap into when she wrote that classic story? Did Avalon ever truly exist?
