DAY NINE Mel’s Love Land #NEXT100 LET JOY AND HAPPINESS LEAD THE WAY

posted by Melanie Lutz

The happiness quotient in our life is directly dependent on the promises and commitments we make and break to ourselves.

Don’t be fooled that how you do one thing isn’t how you do everything.

Making a commitment and sticking to it is the ultimate exercise in loving yourself, in unlearning what you have learned as your way in the world.

When you know in your heart there is an action that needs to be taken, set yourself up for success.  When you make a commitment, gently and with grace honor that commitment.  Do not break promises you make to yourself or those in your life.  Think about your yes.  Think about your no and own it.

When what you see isn’t what you want, it is time to make a commitment to you. To what you want to see. To be the person that you know you were born to be.

Acceptance and serenity is an inside job. It takes a practice. It takes your commitment to show up for yourself.

A commitment to remembering your magnificence brings foward your authentic self, bringing you to the tools necessary to process through what comes up as you step forward increasing your emotional musculature and abilities to handle anything that crosses your path with grace.

Take the hugest step on the path to your most radiant self making Love your bottom line.

Make a commitment and stick to it.

Don’t fall asleep to the truth. The promises you make and break to yourself represent the confidence of purpose that you experience as radiance. Awaken a commitment to loving yourself.

May today’s commitment bring you untold happiness and clarity of integrity.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May you explore untold adventures

opening into the fullest expression of yourself.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

Take MEL’S LOVE LAND pledge today to identify with love and enjoy yourself out there.   “For the Next 100 Days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way…”  and see what happens.

Enter the sacredness of your truest home, that space where love and forgiveness meets an open heart becoming a soulful force of nature.  Become today someone who is full and rich and free of the past judgments and dramas and struggles.

SHARE YOUR VOICE: CREATING POSITIVE MEDIA MESSAGES TAKES INTEGRITY

Flight of the Soul Melanie Lutz Mel's Love LandFlight of the Soul’s friend Kate Neligan recently interviewed AnnaSophia Robb, here’s what she discovered.

AnnaSophia Robb on Role Models, Positive Character Traits & Inspiring Movies

AnnaSophia Robb is a well-known actress with over twenty film and TV credits including Soul Surfer, Bridge To Terabithia, The Way Way Back and “The Carrie Diaries.” In our interview she shares her insights about being a role model and the impact of film.

I was introduced to AnnaSophia through her involvement with one of her (and my) favorite charities. TrueSpark is a non-profit that engages youth through the use of educational curriculum and inspiring mainstream movies to develop 24 different positive character traits (full list here) such as courage, empathy, leadership, and responsibility. TrueSpark has already provided almost 40,000 experiences in classrooms and after-school programs around the United States.

 “TrueSpark offers questions to a young person so they can start to cultivate themselves consciously and TrueSpark brings important conversations to light so kids can express themselves and learn.”                      – AnnaSophia Robb from TrueSpark’s celebrity call-to-action video

Films have a great way of entertaining, inspiring, and educating audiences and movie characters can serve as role models who exhibit positive character traits that youth can emulate. AnnaSophia Robb is a great fit for a charity like TrueSpark because she depicts many of these traits in her on-screen roles, such as perseverance, courage and trust when she played Bethany Hamilton in Soul Surfer. During our time together it became clear to me that she also exhibits her own unique spark, not only as a talented young actress but as a role model too.

AnnaSophia, what top two character traits do you feel you embody?

My strengths are honesty and curiosity. With honesty, I’ve learned that it’s important to know the right time to share the truth. Growing up I was taught by my parents that I could do or be anything I chose. My parents always encouraged and supported my natural curiosity through exploration. In school, I loved to ask questions and wanted to know why the world worked the way it did. I believe it’s helpful for all kids to ask questions and figure out what they believe. They can seek to change things when they see why the world is a certain way.

Who has been a great role model for you in terms of character?

My mom has been a great role model for me, as well as my grandfather who is full of integrity, honesty, and kindness. He is also very forgiving. I also learn a lot from my boyfriend who is so patient and a great listener.

How do you see yourself as a positive role model for youth?                  

I try to stay true to myself and notice when I feel pressured and then I check in with myself. I write letters to myself so that I fully understand my goals, my center, and my own life model. I believe it’s important to check in with what is truly in my heart and to live from there, rather than from a place of wanting to just satisfy others.

I am respectful of others wishes, but I also have my own guiding light and I have to be true to myself. We can always push ourselves and raise the bar and I expect that all kids can do great thigs. I believe in our youth the way my parents believed in and supported me.

What do you want to see the millennial generation doing more of?

I’d love to see the millennial generation cultivate more patience and reliability—and I’m working on this as well. It becomes overwhelming with all the options and technology we have but following through is important and so is being known as a man or woman of your word. Demonstrating true friendship, integrity, and dedication to your commitments are all positive character traits that will benefit society.

ASR photoI believe the millennial generation is in good hands with someone like AnnaSophia amongst them as a mirror of goodness. It was refreshing to hear such a kind, grounded, strong, and wise young woman share so much wisdom. It also made me proud of organizations like TrueSpark and my own start-up, Synergy TV, for showcasing these inspiring films and role models that are changing the world for the better. The leaders of our future are our youth, and they all need tools that empower, inspire, and support them in their character development so they become the best versions of themselves.

DAY EIGHT MEL’S LOVE LAND #NEXT100 | STEP UP

posted by Melanie Lutz

Step into the destiny of this moment.  No matter what you think is stopping you, forget it and jump in, take that next step.  Remember you begin again with each breath where everything is possible and new worlds await.  It is only important that you take the step forward.

In developing this practice your internal gears create a movement of great beauty that is a life fully expressed because you did what needed to be done.  You moved forward to your deliverance from the evils that keep you stuck.

This is the way that we are destined to understand.  This is the wake up call of the moment.  This is the destiny of this expression of humanity.  Moving forward even though we feel stuck or trapped or whatever.

The journey to our authentic self is our destiny. We arrive through love in all its blazing glory.

Commit to be loving to yourself with each step and don’t stop until the miraculous unfolding beyond your fear blossoms.  Take responsibility for the joy that is possible in your heart space.

Go forward and be all that you can be.

Here’s to life, to dreamers, and their dreams…

Here’s a tiny side note that seems like a great accompaniment to today’s topic…  I was lucky enough to get to see Shirley Horn at the Cinegrill at the Hotel Roosevelt in Los Angeles.  Like every master performer she shared life’s deepest secrets through the artistry of her voice.  Shirley Horn delivered a lifetime in five minute blocks with song and left an indelible mark on my heart.  She is still an inspiration.

When Shirley Horn sings All you give is all you get, words written by the great Johnny Mandel you know you are in the presence of the truth.

Check out the Shirley Horn documentary and take that next step.

Here’s to Life!

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May you forgive yourself and those who you feel have wronged you

Deep listening is the most direct route to connecting to your still small voice, to those whispers of spirit.

You know. You know when you listen to that voice, that feeling,and you know when you don’t.

It is a practice you can strengthen.

The universal symphony is always broadcasting the most divinely inspired message guiding us along our journey freeing up our life to purpose when we tune in. Connecting to that space and the deeper river of consciousness is apparent when we listen.

A reminder.

In listening we return home…

Today. Now. Always.

May you surrender your defenses, open your heart and love freely, listening in full harmony with the deepest space of your being.

DAY SIX MEL’S LOVE LAND #NEXT100 | LET LOVE LEAD THE WAY

posted by Melanie Lutz

Mel's Love Land by Melanie Lutz Next100Every breath represents the beginning of a new cycle. An opportunity to begin again. In each new breath, we can make a commitment to being Loving, creating a reset point in your operating system. Opening the gateways to new worlds of possibility never before experienced.

“Courage is more exhilarating than fear and in the long run it is easier. We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing, it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down.”  – Eleanor Roosevelt

When you make Love a daily practice, embracing each step in your process every day becomes a celebration inviting all parts of you to be nourished allowing everyone you encounter to open in joyful meetings and blessed interaction.  Pure Love is the full knowing of the truth of your being.

Let the Angels in your life lead the way and absolutely without hesitation let yourself go with Love,

Love Land’s NEXT 100 (Day Five) SHAKE IT OFF AND BEGIN AGAIN

posted by Melanie Lutz

Shake it Off and begin Again Next100 Love LandToday is the day to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start again.  A lesson and a way of life.  In achieving this inner reset button where you have a mechanism of restoring your connection to your divine source that is in you but not of you, you take the largest step toward your practice of being loving and you demonstrate to those around you, your family and friends and strangers on the street how to thrive.  Just because we get older and we know more, it doesn’t mean the principles of nature stop.  Everything is a cycle.  Everything is a process from which we are moving through in complete connection to our inner Tahiti.

Take today to say this is a new day loving yourself, my family and those in my community.

I know how it is to start over and leap into the unknown giving up one life in service of an intuition something magnificent is possible.    Do not get discouraged by anything that might come up.   Keep going.   Making these shifts in our knowing that whatever happens we are held and okay and at the end of each and every day we are loved, goes the longest way to creating permanent peace in your life and in your heart.

Get comfortable with the mechanism of magnificence always available that doesn’t care if you fall down, only that you shake it off and get up and begin again.  Falling is something that happens to us.  Shaking it off and beginning again is a choice we make to honor our self and all that comes up in each of our lives.

Remembering it is a process of unlearning what we have learned, and this process is always going on.  The mental attitude and practice of love is something that when repeated in action creates peace in your heart.

 

Foster the capacity to have more compassion for yourself and what seems to be a mis-take or an embarrassment and live in the loving energy of the truth of who you are.

 

Forgive yourself now, then and forever for every unloving thought, release it into the ethers from whence it came.

 

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May your days be free from strife and worry

and all your steps be light and bright.

 

Take the pledge today to identify with love and enjoy yourself out there.   For the Next 100 Days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way.

Enter the sacredness of your truest home, that space where love and forgiveness meets an open heart becoming a soulful force of nature.  Become today someone who is full and rich and free of the past judgments and dramas and struggles.

DAY FOUR #NEXT100 CHERISH EACH MOMENT

posted by Melanie Lutz

A dear comedy writer friend of mine shared a tiny detail of his process in handling the massive rejection and ongoing notes and the general ‘not getting it’ that takes place with his work. He made a decision long ago that when someone did say something nice he would take it at face value imagining the kind thought floating directly into his heart taking full residence, hugging and embracing the feeling of acceptance in its entirety.

Cherish the nice things people have to say, be grateful for the kindness, and accept the blessing without self judgment deflecting it absorbing it deeply into the seat of your soul.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May you be lead to a profound opening in your vision of what is
into all that awaits…

LOVING THOUGHTS TO REMEMBER

Do not get caught up in the lost dream, open up to the reality of love and all its wondrous powers to heal, expand, grow and cherish each and every part of ourselves.  Live in the loving embrace of your peace filled thoughts in with your surroundings.

DAY ONE of #NEXT100 – Stand Up. Speak Out. Take Action.

posted by Melanie Lutz

Been thinking a lot about personal responsibility, as the news trumpets on, and life marches forward and as change is constant, and the ways we could complain endless.  Today is Day 1 of the #Next 100 Mel’s Love Land Challenge to take a stance in your life and quite simply, look at the world with love.  It is  the day to remember life begins again in each breath.  With this next breath it is time to make a shift in consciousness, to choose in this moment to be more loving than the last.

We have the opportunity right now to assume any position we want to assume, why not choose Love?

STAND UP

That man or woman in the mirror who needs to remember the truth of who you are and why you are here on the planet.  There are a lot of conversations we could be having about how tricky this situation is, or how caught up I am in my feelings, but the only conversation we need to have is am I being loving.  am I being compassionate. am I being kind.

This is the stance of remembering we are powerful beyond measure and this is what we take forward as our birthright.

SPEAK OUT

We can’t keep up with everything that is taking place in the world and we do no not have time to worry about what we can do nothing about.  Our voice is important.  Exercising that voice with love is our responsibility.

The focus falls to the individual.  It falls to the places and spaces of our playing field.  The areas of our hearts were we are in community with the world.  Life is an ongoing exercise of love in compassionate action.  It is all things in all ways and the essence of a people’s faith in each other.

TAKE ACTION

Doing the right thing is only possible when we have been taught to practice loving thought, when we have a discipline to move through the every creating illusions of our fears.

Let’s trust in love and make that the bottom line.

Take the Mel’s Love Land pledge | For the #Nex100 days I am going to Consider the Possibility there is Another Way… www.melanielutz.com

May you fully cherish the Love Land of your days as a gentle but firm hand of support pushing you from behind into a deeper practice of  Loving You (for life.)

Heart of the Matter: Expressing the Soul’s Code

posted by Melanie Lutz

Expressing the work of the soul in openness and joy and so much love TS Eliot’s Four Quartets spoke of the release into what lies beneath and beyond…

I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing. (III)
 
 
Enjoy this prayer for light, love, freedom and joy, where all your dreams come true in the open hearted grace of now…

Bring me a love that is worthy of my being beyond category. Allow me to experience the grace and flight of true love born of the highest expression of my most excellent self of all that I am and all that I hold dear, allow me to love all the ways I am and let that resting place be-come the birthplace of my truest love, my dearest beloved, the most loving holiest soulful expression of paring in oneness with my beloved. Remove the obstacles that might hamper my seeing, allow me to enact the journey of flight into all that will be, allow me to release into the fullest trusting of my heart to lead me where I need to go, to receive the gifts I am here to receive, whatever happens, allow the dance of destiny to my hearts content to continue allow the waltz to take flight as happiness surrounds our days and be a blessing to all who interact with my union built in love, with love and through love.”

Bring me new love in the ways that you know will nourish and sup-port my most loving heart and be a blessing to all who experience our love. Allow this person to fall gently into my life, with no planning, through guidance lovingly planted to lead us to each other, allow my heart to open beautifully in receiving this gift of ease and excitement and true elegant partnership. May I be open to effortless ways of revealing this deep soulful relationship that will flourish with each passing moment in ways that will thrill my spirit.

Mel’s #LoveLand 3rd Annual Feast of Love begins again September 22nd…

Take the pledge and join in the fun…. For the #Next100 Days I am Going to Consider the Possibility there is Another Way.

May all your sweetest dreams come true. May many blessings abound with Infinite Love and Gratitude.

Love, Mel
