is an amazing force of phenomenally good energy. You cannot help but feel a
whole lot better around her.
before her tour kicked off I dropped by Martha’s accommodation to speak to her
about the schedule for the week. It had been a difficult day and I was
completely overwhelmed with bad energy and feelings of anxiety. I was worried
that I wouldn’t be able to mask my frayed nerves.
Amazingly she let me into her room. But what astounded me more was that within
seconds — after being greeted like a long lost friend and grabbed into a bear
hug — I felt free. Free from the stress, the anxiety and the desperate desire
to get home and breathe. I just wanted to laugh and spend more time with her.
started one of my most memorable author tours ever!
start off by saying that if you stand firmly on the side of logic and what is
rational then this might not be the book for you. Finding Your Way in a Wild New World follows ancient wisdom and
ideology, and teaches you to free yourself from the restraints of language.
According to Martha, everything that the modern world has taught us needs to be
unlearned. Imagine my surprise when she told me that the modern classroom is
the most hostile environment for the human brain. We learn better through
motion and when we are one with nature.

Finding Your Way in a
Wild New World
is Martha’s attempt to get people to listen to themselves, not the language in
their minds, but their spirit. Do what makes you feel good. Suffering is
designed to motivate you to find the perfect zone.
Martha believes that when you start to suffer emotionally and physically, it is
your body telling you that it is time to follow your true path. And she has
made her career about doing things that make her feel better, because simply
put she doesn’t like to suffer.
book Martha offers four technologies of magic to help you fulfil your true
calling: Wordlessness, Oneness, Imagination, and Forming.
We live in
a chaotic world where you are always striving to be better. You believe that
getting a promotion will bring more money, greater respect and will provide
security. But, you are exhausted, you take medication or see a therapist to
help you cope, and you’re not really happy. Wordlessness is a state of peace
It is the
letting go of language, which restricts us. A silent mind allows the soul to
connect with the living beat of the earth. In order to drop into a state of
Wordlessness Martha asks that you “call up a happy memory, anything that makes
you feel relaxed and in a state of compassion.
When you have no thoughts you are love.” And once you master the art of
Wordlessness you can move into a state of Oneness.
according to Martha is “not just a belief, but an experiential knowledge” that
nature, animals and humans alike are all one being. Through oneness you can
communicate with everything that surrounds you. It can aid you to feel for what
is missing in your life, and help to nourish your spirit.
step is Imagination, the ability to imagine your future and see what path you
should be moving on. And Imagination needs heart, because in order to find your
true path you need to be moving forward. And moving forward requires Forming.
an act of doing. It is the taking of those imaginings and converting them into
reality. And in order to do this Martha wants you to LEAP (Love + Energy +
Alignment = Power), “even if the next step seems scary and illogical and
everyone thinks you are crazy, march forward.” Stop imagining and start living.
In the end
it is not about what you want, but what you yearn for. To yearn for something
is to love it before it exists. And Martha wants you to go for what you believe
is impossible. If you don’t try, how will you ever know what your true purpose
why not make yourself a vision board of all the things you yearn for. Take time
to sit in nature, play and rest. Because according to Martha Beck, “Your
destiny is powerful and it looks for you, it knows you. Your destiny – love –
is hunting you now. All you need to do is invite it into your life.”
