What is Fear and How Does it Serve Us?

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 4 Comments

Fear is a natural reaction. In many cases it’s a helpful indication of what is and isn’t good for us to do. Fear of extreme heights stops us from jumping off cliffs and tall buildings to see what it feels like to fly, but that sensible fear of heights can easily progress into a terror of standing behind a railing and admiring the view. That is when it becomes a problem, when it stops us from really living. As we experience the current shift, fears come up to be released and transformed. This puts us under pressure. For me it begins in my solar plexus, that uncomfortable fizzing sensation that so successfully lets me know everything isn’t right with the world. Then the thoughts begin to circle around and around in my brain until I get to the bottom of things and release them.

Energy Reading September 2016: A Portal Into Manifestation

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 1 Comment

Everyone seems to be tired right now. I’m tired. At first I thought it was just because I was doing too much, not getting enough sleep. But the more I talk to people, the more I realise how many others are feeling the same. So this week I decided to dig into the energy we are experiencing right now. I keep telling people the energy is big, and more than once I’ve been reminded that I’ve been saying that all year. And ain’t that the truth! This year has felt like an enormous roller coaster, with us moving from one big astrological transit into another, and it’s still going on.

Recognising your own Psychic Senses

Do you like old houses? I love looking around a stately home. I enjoy the old furniture, the libraries, getting the feel of the energies in the place. I wouldn’t want to sleep in one, but for a day out it’s like a gateway into a different reality. This summer I visited a manor house. Nobody else wanted to look round the house, so I went on my own. I’ve not explored one of these places on my own before, and I relished the opportunity to really focus on the energies without distraction. One of the first rooms was empty apart from portraits, and an amazing view over the gardens. While I was wandering through, the word ‘Trapped,’ came into my mind.

Comfort Zone: Restriction or Guide?

Martha Dunlop Ready for More Leave a Comment

The idea of being in your comfort zone conjures images of comfy slippers, sitting by the fire, and avoiding any challenging opportunities that might open your life up to something new, something challenging or exciting. But is that image out of date? I was brought up to believe it was right to push yourself out of your comfort zone. But as I’ve traveled further on my spiritual journey, that comfort instinct has begun to operate very differently.

The Day My Dream Came True

I am in the middle of a big, and often dreaded astrological transit. Pluto, the lord of the underworld, death and transformation, very slowly passed over my Sun (my will and purpose) and then my Mercury (communications, writing, travel). I’m not going to lie, it’s been a challenging time, but that’s not what I’m here to talk about.I want to tell you about the day the Pluto/Mercury transit peaked, the day one of my long-held dreams came true.I have wanted a dog for as long as I can remember, but for the first time in my adult life, it felt like the right moment. I didn’t just want any dog, I wanted a Cavalier, the breed I grew up with, the cute, cuddly little dogs like Lady in Lady and the Tramp.
