Anger – A Key to Power and Drive

Martha Dunlop How To, New to This, Ready for More 1 Comment

Dr Seuss has it licked in ‘The Places You’ll Go’. He knows just how self work runs. Sometimes:
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

Then come the days when:

‘you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.’
Anger drives some amazing ‘slumps’. Feelings rise up and take us by surprise. How irritating is this – we just want clearing, not more rage. It’s tempting to wheel out the positive affirmations and focus on what’s good. Except that anger has so much power wrapped up in it. If we keep damping it down we lose out.

Exploring Starseeds

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

I first encountered the idea of Starseeds through Dolores Cannon. She talked about souls who had never incarnated on Earth before, coming in a wave to bring a new energy to Earth and help the Ascension process. At the time I found the idea interesting but moved on. Recently though, the subject starting coming up. I was asked to write a blog on it, people started posting about Lemurian starseed crystals, a friend brought it up with me, it was coming at me from all over the place. To me, this is a message, and so I took the bait and started digging. Much has been written about Starseeds, and there is plenty you can look up if you would like to absorb what has been said before. My personal approach is to meditate to see what is relevant for me at this particular time, and to see how it resonates with me. I got myself a lemurian starseed quartz which I love and I began to meditate on what the message was for me, and why I needed to connect to this idea.

A Story of Past Life Work

Martha Dunlop How To, New to This, Ready for More 2 Comments

I’d had a week or so of heavy past life work that was leaving me with a neck and shoulder that were completely in spasm. I hadn’t found these kind of past lives in a while. It was all I got in the run up to 2012, but since then, my inner work has changed so much, and I’ve been largely free of that heaviness. Not so this week. While I was doing other things, pictures started flickering into my mind. They pop into my head much as you would remember something from your childhood, or even last week. They act like normal memories, except that I don’t know what’s coming next until I see it. Next came the grief. It wasn’t personal grief. It wasn’t triggered by anything in this life, instead it was soul grief, sadness and hurt from so many lives of suffering. It washed through me, bringing me to tears. So I cried as I worked, and I sang along to the music blaring through the speakers, singing out the pain I had held in over so many lifetimes. I sang as the energy swept through me, and left me with a feeling of catharsis. ‘Get your head down and keep going.’ The words popped so clearly into my mind. And yes, I knew in an instant that in those lives I had seen, that was all I could do. I could either give up, or I could get my head down, and keep going forwards, keep putting one foot in front of the other, and hoping that I would get through the next day intact. In the next moment (yes, it really did flow through this quickly), I realised that’s a sentiment I can still relate to. But why? I live in the first world, I have a good life, a happy life. I have no real need to get my head down and keep going, so why do I do it? Why indeed? I began to look at the way I was doing things. I would start something, an exciting project, then it would become a new part of the routine. Then I’d start another project, and that joined the queue. I’m sure you’re starting to get the picture. Somehow, all these exciting new projects became part of the burden I was carrying and felt unable to put down. It never occurred to me that I could put those burdens down. That’s the way this self-development lark goes. You keep doing something against all sense, because the way out just doesn’t occur to you at the time. Then it flashes in, in a moment of inspiration and you wonder why you didn’t realise ages ago. Why? Because you hadn’t yet learned the lesson the problem was teaching you. I needed to learn about that grief, persecution and suffering. I needed to find out what those other versions of myself had to offer me. Once I had done that, the energy could release and I …

Learning About Ourselves Through Stories

Martha Dunlop Book Chat, Fiction, New to This, Ready for More 1 Comment

‘I feel as though I’m made of stories.’ I wrote this in a tweet recently, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. I mean that statement from a very deep place. To me stories are part of my blood, part of my makeup. I function better as a person when I’m reading and writing stories, I actually feel as though they have a balancing effect on me, by enabling me to explore different energies and experiences from a distance, enabling me to observe. Stories help me understand the world and myself. When I read a good book I lose myself in it. I relate to the character so strongly that I can actually bring their loves and annoyances in everyday life.

Soul Groups: Lighting the Karmic Path

Martha Dunlop Ready for More 2 Comments

During the course of my past-life work, I have encountered the same souls incarnating with me over and over again. Similarly, I have relatives who have passed, but whom I still feel connected to. This is because we are all part of the same soul group. At a higher level, we all work together to facilitate the learning of everyone in the group, in each lifetime. This means we have a wealth of Karmic connections, increasing the love we feel for each other, but also exaggerating our ability to push each other’s buttons and provide opportunities for learning and spiritual development.
