Energy Reading for August 2020

There is a lot of confusion at the moment, with mixed messages and masked intentions making it hard to understand what is relevant to your path and what is a distraction. This is causing an atmosphere of general mistrust and anxiety that becomes self-fulfilling in its nature, particularly as people become increasingly tuned into the collective, whilst many do not yet have strategies in place to filter the energies that come through. 
 
You have been undergoing a process of expanding your sensitivity to the energies that surround you, with people becoming involved in the feelings and experiences of others to a much greater extent.  For those of you who are already used to this process, this has become overwhelming at times because your normal levels of tolerance are being challenged by the changes in the collective energy. But you are also in a better position to  control and filter the energies that you allow into your personal field.  This is becoming increasingly important, and there is a need for each of you to think carefully about how you structure your time and intentions in order to allow in the most helpful energy to your personal development.

The Phantom’s Curse: A Cosy Chat with YA Author Shelley Wilson

Martha Dunlop Book Chat, Fiction Leave a Comment

At the heart of the Phantom’s curse is this mysterious and unseen creature who terrorised our characters in the past. In the Prologue, you talk about how leaders thought they could control the Phantom and use it to increase their power, but every time it was too big and powerful to control and it ripped through the country causing chaos and destruction. Does this image have something to say about our current political situation?

I’d be lying if I said the political landscape didn’t influence me. When I was writing TPC, my newsfeed was flooded with stories from Syria and how certain factions were turning away those in need. The divisions in society (and life) have travelled through the centuries with us. Some changes are being made, but on the whole, we all find our ‘place’ and get on with it. I saw this in the characters who live in the Link. The inner city elite ignores them, but they are stronger than anyone realises – if they can only learn to work together for the greater good.

Emotions are running high with many people reaching overwhelm fast. People are bumping into their own behavioural patterns and expectations and they are either falling away to leave space for the new, or playing on repeat. The fastest way to move through this process is to address how you can bring change into your life in a positive way. Going back to ‘how things were,’ may be appealing, but it is not aligned with the forwards movement that is pulsing through your planet in increasingly irresistible waves.

Under an Evil Star: A Cosy Chat with Author, Jane Holland

Martha Dunlop Book Chat, Fiction Leave a Comment

Under an Evil Star is a thriller based on horary astrology. What led you to choose this as a topic?

Since astrology is such a big part of my daily life, I wanted to extend that into my fiction. But how? Last year, eager to write for radio, I listened to Alastair Jessiman’s great radio plays about a Scottish psychic, The Sensitive, and kept thinking throughout, I need to use my esoteric knowledge in my fiction in the same way. Then I hit on the idea of making an astrologer my main character. But obviously, you need to know who the villain is to study their birth chart. But with horary, a much wider field of possibilities becomes open to you.

Energy Reading for June 2020

Martha Dunlop Uncategorized Leave a Comment

There is a great deal of mental energy and emotional upheaval at this time, with communication, truth and relationships coming under extreme scrutiny. Relationships are being reformed, adjusted, left behind and recreated as your society is pulled into new shapes, forced to communicate in new ways and choose where to focus. The exploration of what is truly important is a hugely individual process and will lead many to a range of different understandings. It is through this process of re-evaluation that the true changes will come into being. Friendships that you may have felt you relied on may be dropping away. Cracks may be showing, or you may find that a friend you barely knew in the past is becoming increasingly important. Whichever is true for you, the shift is significant and can be long lasting.

Energy Reading for May 2020

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

This is a time of great instability in your world and this is leading to many people suffering disturbances to their mental state and sleep patterns. As you travel through these constantly shifting waters, it is important to tune in to what is real and what is story in the thought processes, dreams and mental patterns that can swamp you.  These mental energies are rich and potent in their learning opportunities and offer you a deep insight into the work you are here to do at this particular point in time. Try not to get caught up into the belief that everything you fear is real.  Try to see which are real fears and which are images of the patterns you are being called on to address.  Learning through new experiences has a different feel to the process of dealing with that which is from the past, so try to drill down into an observer’s understanding of which you are dealing with, so that you can take the most appropriate approach in each circumstance.

You currently stand at a junction and as individuals there are a multitude of roads open to you. It is your choice how you handle this moment, how much you embrace or fight change, and whether you face up to your fears, try to hide from them, or allow them to run riot. For many, the concept of choice may not feel real. As you live in a restricted physical state that was unheard of only a short time ago, you feel your options have narrowed to almost nothing. And yet, there are still choices if you are able to stay calm and look for the roads that lie at your feet. Placing your toes on those paths may seem insurmountable, but acknowledge that they are there, and make a conscious decision which road is preferable to you at this time. In this way you can hold your sense of freedom and creativity in your own hands.

As March opens, you are approaching a period when you have a greater ability to manifest, so take the time to focus on what you would like to create.

Layers of conditioning are leaving your energy field at an increasing rate and this can give the impression of stagnation. But it is creating space for the new, which you can bring into your life if you choose. Although the shedding is unstoppable, what you usher in is of your own choosing so pick your focus wisely. It is in your power to manifest that which you do not want if you focus solely on conflict.

You can recreate the loops of the past by claiming those old patterns that are trying to fall away, or you an let them go and focus in a new direction.
