Energy Reading for December, Follow Your Joy

Martha Dunlop New to This, Ready for More 1 Comment

December is a month that offers change and shift. Those who are looking for change will find it to be a wild ride where their own potential for manifestation increases many fold. They will find that the universe moves with them to change in whatever direction is in their own greatest good. If you are on your path it will open up before you. Distractions will fall away and become quieter, or disappear altogether. The journey will open up before you with more clarity than you have experienced in the past. There will be opportunities, helpers and guides at every turn to help you move further in your own right direction. This is a time to be really clear about what you want. It is a time to be focused on your goals, not on your fears. Because those fears will lead you into road-blocks and difficulties. Only aligned and forward-moving ventures will have wings at this time, so be truly honest with yourself.

The Magic of Christmas

Martha Dunlop Book Chat, Fiction Leave a Comment

A guest post by Rom Com author Beth Good.

Christmas, falling at midwinter, is the time of year most associated with magic. Midwinter is the darkest time, the cold drawing inexorably in – ‘Winter is coming!’ as George RR Martin eerily puts it in Game of Thrones – that we as human beings have been conditioned over millennia to fear. Yet the dark is traditionally a friend to magic. Night was once a blessed cover for witches whose activities might otherwise have led to their deaths if undertaken during daylight hours. Many spells and rituals need to be performed at night. And while the dark of the moon is often considered a time for potent or dangerous magic, it’s also a moment when we can pause for reflection, seeking within for spiritual sustenance. Planting seeds and waiting for them to grow.

Do you re-read books?

Martha Dunlop Book Chat, Fiction Leave a Comment

There are certain books I love so much, I go back into them for a visit. The characters are like friends I want to see again. The places feel so real I’m sure I’ve been there before.
My favourites for rereading are The Catch Trap by Marian Zimmer Bradley, a love story about flyers in a circus, (trapeze artists, Twilight, and of course Harry Potter. As a child I read my copy of the BFG by Roald Dahl into tatters, and the beautiful A Little Princess by Frances Hodgeson. What was it about those books that I loved? Well the characters were the main thing. When I finished them I didn’t want to say goodbye. I have been known to restart a book immediately for that reason. The world and life they took me into was pure magic, enveloping me in a completely different reality.

Energy Reading for November 2017, Open To Unexpected Possibilities

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

November sees another shift. The waves of Scorpio have been bashing down your defenses, encouraging you to open and to submit to the flow. For some this has been exciting, a challenging but wild ride that has carried them forwards. For others it has been a struggle and a journey that has taken them to the depths of their endurance. Whichever of these camps you fall into, look at your situation. Which buttons have been pushed? What resistance have you encountered? Have you moved forwards in the past days and weeks, or are you feeling stuck in a rut? For those of you who have done the work, who have looked at the lessons laid out before you and sought a way through that fueled your self-development, then the change from October to November may be significant. This is the time when the true gold of transformation takes its form. If you look, you can see the beginnings of what you are about to become. You are moving into a time of reaping benefits from the hardships that you have recently encountered. For some of you this may be big, a large goal that you have been aiming for. For others it may be a shift in a heartfelt relationship, or in the energy that you hold within yourself. Whatever you are focusing on now has the opportunity to move. The barriers have been broken down, the wounds are still fresh, but now they are being given an opportunity to heal as never before. Now you are able to let go of more of your patterns, more of your issues, as this water energy crashes through your own personal energy field, and your energetic blueprint. People often view their blueprint as something unchangeable, but this is in fact not the case. Your path in life was set before birth, yes, but not in an absolute way. There are always choices, always opportunities, and what is to say that the dream you hold close to your heart is not actually the path that you should be taking? Once again I call on you to look deep within yourself for the answer to your worries. You can find inspiration and help from many places around you, but always bring it back to what lies within your heart, what feels true to you on that most instinctive level. As you move further into this Ascension process, you become more and more intuitively connected. Your perception of reality shifts by the day. What felt acceptable, good even, months ago, now feels restrictive. You may feel trapped, but remember you are always in a position to step away from these bonds. You may not like the alternatives that are being presented to you by polite society. If this is the case, look for others. This is a time like never before, in its scope for change, for the new, and for complete and utter transformation. You do not have to be who you were a …
