Flight of the Soul

Questions that Can Make and Unmake a Life.

posted by Melanie Lutz

What if you woke up and all you felt was acceptance in your heart for yourself and all you meet?

What if every breeze that hits your cheek felt like loving kisses?

What if you lived your life from the purpose of your being?

What if today was a day that you recognized you are enough and you always have been?

Listen to the answers that come into your heart.  Listen to the words that come out of your mouth.  Listen as if your life depended on it.

Wishing you lots of love to see the truth, lots of joy to live your dreams and lots of truth to guide your way.

Man, Woman or Child. We are Powerful Beyond Measure.

posted by Melanie Lutz

Today marks the day of when power blossoms in your heart.  Today we celebrate how powerful we are. Today we make a mark in our constitution that we are powerful beyond measure.  Today we say “I AM POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE.”

Now that I have your attention.  Today also marks the day Empowered Life Productions releases a collection from a cross section of super AMP woman entitled The Power of Being a Woman available now on Amazon.  Today would be a good day to  purchase the book and be inspired and gain in wisdom and share in the experiences of the collective feminine voice to ROAR.

However you arrive at reclaiming the power that lies within, however you share the truth of your being and release the quiet super power of your heart into the world, today we celebrate you.  We celebrate all of you.

Never more so has it been so important for us to rise up and remember with grace and love and compassion we are super powers, as women, as global citizens and as leaders in our households and communities.  Today is the day we embrace all of our gifts and give all of our hearts to loving action.  Today we take the step we need to take and today we live in the harmony of the truth.  “We are powerful beyond measure.”

Today we draw a line in the sand and say, ‘No more, will I be held a passive participant in inaction.’  Today I will quite simply grow up, answering the call of my being to wake up the nourishing spirit of my birthright and get shiiiiiite done that needs to be done.

Like one of my idols shared ‘If there were more people who did, there would be less to be done.”

Today we have the opportunity to be inspired by the women of The Power of Being a Woman.  Take their lead and join in the fun.

Surrender it All Over. The Flight of Grace.

posted by Melanie Lutz

Surrender is the wisdom of the faithful open heart to realize miracles.  It is one of the biggest powers we have to manifest grace into and through our life with so much love.  My Mom always says, ‘Melanie, come on now.’ When I give her the famous lines ‘All we can do is pray.’    Almost all the time when we are met with something that confronts and challenges us and breaks us open and fills us with a premonition of the unknown that we must rise and embrace are we left with the one and only, most magnificent option, give it all over to the big peeps and G O D. However you come to this decision and there are many, why not go directly to prayer.  Return to prayer and find the answers within.

Love into the unexpected, love up the challenges that you meet.  Live your life as an open grace of acceptance.

Lets keep the magic of love rolling into the fullness of our days.  Let’s make a promise to ourselves to give it over, to place it on the alter, and celebrate loving surrender as often as possible.

Something comes up.  Stop and say.  Time to pray.  And, Yes, I realize I just rhymed that piece.  Aint no mountain high enough, aint no valley low enough, will keep you from the truth, to the opening that occurs in a surrendered heart. Allow it to flow, right now.

Words are magical
Life is beautiful
Love is all there is
Prayer is the medium of miracles
Enjoy
Surrendering to the butterflies
Embracing the light filled liquid love of possibility
Living in a practice of joy filled prayerfulness
So thankful to be able to remain open and surrendered, for the love that went into all of who I am and all that I have done and as grace propels me into deeper levels of awareness and expansion may each moment be filled with compassionate grace.
The greatest thing about surrender is the more you practice it, the more the gifts of spirit’s power flows through.  The more responding and entertaining surrendered action with love, the more peaceful you feel.  Like any practice the more you do it the stronger its flow.
Lesson #328 ACIM ‘I choose the second place to gain the first’ gives me a statement, an affirmation, if you will to remind myself to move into the universal flow, that loving composition of harmony that endlessly spins and creates and cycles.

In this stance of surrender to giving up what you think you need into what seems to be the second place, realizes what you in your truest heart want.  More from Lesson #238 ACIM:

Advertisement

‘All the things we perceive are upside down until we listen first to the Voice for God. It seems that we will gain autonomy but by our striving to be separate, and that our independence from the rest of God’s creation is the way in which salvation is obtained. Yet all we find is sickness, suffering and loss and death. This is not what our Father wills for us, nor is there any second to His Will. To join with His is but to find our own. And since our will is His, it is to Him that we must go to recognize our will.

There is no will but Yours. And I am glad that nothing I imagine contradicts what You would have me be. It is Your Will that I be wholly safe, eternally at peace. And happily I share that Will which You, my Father, gave as part of me.’

Go into the depth of your soul and allow surrender to take flight.  Be all that you can be in each moment and head beyond your beliefs. Discover the adventure of surrender.

The Road by the Ocean Reads from work in progress Vanessa by the Sea

posted by Melanie Lutz

Sometimes you have to shift up your game plan and invite in new possibilities.

This principle of openness can be applied to everything in your life.  It is the discipline of patience for what is.  I have invited this process as the way I move forward on birthing projects.

Love, grace and words spoken from Melanie Lutz’s upcoming work of non-fiction Vanessa by the Sea.  It has been an amazing journey of going deeply into the psychology of the unconscious, to embrace the Jungian work and find a way to integrate and synthesis all of the spiritual opportunities that are available to all of us.

Enjoy these readings shared lovingly.

Courage is Necessary….Take Action Today, with Love!

posted by Melanie Lutz

LighthouseWe are powerful beyond measure. We are here to be in service to our purpose.  We are the people.

Everytime I think about the great women I know and have inspired me I am brought to tears.  For all that have come before me and all that will follow.  May today mark the fullest expression of freedom and love and victory over doubt or fear.

In the end it is better to have tried. It is better to have moved into the passions that burn in your heart to be shared.  Nothing has been accomplished by saying I can’t.  Get out there and experience your truest self in each courageous breath where you choose to be in communion with your soul’s code.  Where life is all that it is meant to be and love is the way.

Enjoy the wise, powerful, always insightful Maya Angelou discussing courage.

One Hand Piano Man. Inspiration comes in many Forms.

posted by Melanie Lutz

Everyone loves an underdog story.  Overcoming obstacles placed in the path of achievement against great odds. While I can’t even imagine what it would be like to not have one of my hands.  Nothing can stop up but our own thinking about a situation.

In a world where complaints and blame seems to permeate inaction, PianoOneHand heard the song in his heart and forged his own path. Take today to consider the possibility there is another way.

A Father’s Gift. Prayer for New Love and Dreams Fulfilled. The Truest Love Story the Return to the Heart of the Matter.

posted by Melanie Lutz

For Father’s Day, SynergyTV Network, approached me about a crowd sourcing project for one of the tiny books of poems and affirmations I wrote called I am a Great Man.  Not even understanding the full nature of what crowd sourcing was I agreed to participate, the call went out for photographs of the great men in our lives that deserved celebration, that by their presence in our lives fill our days with love.

Because the turnaround time for the project was so quick a few responses and shared photographs came in after the edit.  Each submission made was a gift to the Team working on this project as it shared the connection we all have to our loved ones and the messages they deliver and the ways in which we long for the connection, free and clear, that lives and breathes in our memories as we achieve new pathways to open loving hearts in our present.

Advertisement

For this Father’s Day wanted to share one of the submissions that touched me deeply, because it contained a wish and a prayer for something I hear expressed in a lot of the sharing circles I encounter as a writer, lecturer, facilitator and teacher of how love liberates.

Her wish…

“Please bring me a love that honors who I am, that celebrates my uniqueness, that gets the reason why I am here.”

This resonated for me as the cry of the heart for that soul mate to meet our hearts, allowing the universe to do what it does in delivering that other, that person who fulfills the deepest truth of love’s unconditional power.  It isn’t “complete me,” it is, “allow our open sacred connection to work for the highest good of each, in our fullest expression of who we are, living from the deepest truth of love as interdependence in mutuality and understanding, compassion and always grace, for the other and for ourselves.”

Advertisement

The first prayer to ignite possibilities is “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 become 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.”

Advertisement

Do not get caught up in the 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.

I used to think that I could not go on.  That life was nothing but an awful song

Now I know the meaning of true love, a meeting of the everlasting arms

If I can see it I can do it, If i just believe it then there’s nothing to it.

I believe I can fly.

From Lorelei Shellist in gratitude and recognition of the first Great Man in her life.

Dear God,

Bring me new love in the ways that you know will nourish and support 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.

Amen.

Lots of Love.

May all your sweetest dreams come true.  Many blessings.

Life in Loving Action.  Right now.

posted by Melanie Lutz

When you feel you can’t go on.  It is a great to stop and say  — play on.  Let whatever it is play on.   There is a moment of freedom in taking a wonderful deep releasing breath out and relax for beat entering into a new stream of possibility.  Life is achieved in the opening within a stretch in the space beyond the reality of wha seems to be driving you crazy.  Step up and Into this moment.  As you feel the breath leave your body emptying you to the next breath hear what wants to be performed listen with love in these gaps to take action Loving leads you home.

Every.  Time.

It doesn’t matter what label, what distinction what categorization, what separation, love is the same.  Love is powerful and is always to be trusted.

Develop Your Edge Expand and Integrate.  Release your story, have faith in your inner wisdom.

Whatever happens, allow there to be a center of great understanding within.

 

Acting out the ego patterns of needing it to be different, unhappily perpetuates the very blocks to being and loving which they were devised to protect from or compensate for. They paradoxically bring about the death of relationships or the annihilation of individuality.

Resolution of the conflicts of the power pivot beyond dependency bring the individual to a new and enviable level of relating. In the recognition and valuing of the real self and the real other lies the potential for mature loving which ultimately enhances one’s capacity to be.

The life of any given individual has its own internal organization and consistency. What may appear irrational comes to make sense when it is viewed within the context of one’s entire life, particularly the earliest years.

They cannot always be counted on realistically to lend themselves to the service of the extended self-examination and self-discovery that goes with the process of change. They cannot always be expected to bear the burden of the ups and downs of one’s feelings, of the preoccupation with one’s self and psyche, or of the need for patience and forbearance as one tries and retires new attitudes and behavior.

You are all you have therefore, make yourself the most beautiful, tender, wonderful, fantastic person in the world. And then you will always survive.

Reminds me of this Excerpt from Medea

The Oracle comes to Medea and says….

‘Medea, what is left? everything is destroyed, everything is gone….’ Medea says ‘what is left…there is me. what do you mean what is left…everything is left… I am left.’

When we recognize this importance of you again returning to a respect for you, a love of you, and realizing all things come from you, then you can give to others.

 

Be loved through it all with reassurance and support that stands as a testament to you most wonderful inner self, deep in your own wisdom on fire with the flames of grace and completing every step necessary to remember your own inner tahiti.Butterfly

Good affirmation.

I love
myself

I am enough

I hold myself dear

I am smart enough

I am assured enough to take care of myself

My ego doesn’t need to be stroked

My actions when pure are more than enough to feel the strength.

of love’s miracle, available in each moment.

I love myself.
You being you is enough!!

You are loveable

You don’t need to do anything

You being you is enough!!!

I notice you

You are lovable

You don’t need to do anything

You being you is enough.

Have a wonderful one!

Say YES! Make Today and Everyday Miraculous.

posted by Melanie Lutz

“Every day I remember this is the miracle. Me and you in agreement to share the truth with love and allow healing to occur.  In this I experience God’s great wonder working through me.”

In the face of all my fears there is love. Within all my relationships their exists the power to heal perceptions and lift my human condition to a divine inner state of vision and peace where I am in full knowing of heaven on earth. Like Joseph Campbell’s “We have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us – the labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a God; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.”

I look at Vanessa with that child’s wonder with that ‘seriously, do you see how profound all this is…?? !!’

“The labyrinth being thoroughly known.”

The way is simple.

“Just like you said. I come in every week and have stared at that framed labyrinth on the wall without any insight into its meaning and bam here I am just experiencing  it.”

“Vanessa, we have gone deep.”

Vanessa nods.

“Healing comes from that meeting place within. That deepening of connection to the divine where you are wholly your self in connection with the vibration of your unique oneness. Anything other than that is destroying your vibrational note.  You see the whale in the distance in chasing after it, in responding to the pull to have the object of your affection in your possession. You destroy yourself, you destroy your nature that’s the way of it.”

Advertisement

“It is what the ego does to deflect the truth.”

“In chasing the whale/idol I am in a pattern that leads to my illusion and until it shatters in destruction I am in a fever of craving it.  IN deepening and GFG-ing I am opening. Opening. Opening to all that I will ever need. Every treasure imaginable. Every effort remembered as a time sucker away from the quantum moment of the instant. Vanessa.

I say in this moment.

YES!

Excerpted from Vanessa by the Sea

In the Path of service to our soul’s code all tasks are part of the journey.  The voice of our inner intuition delivers us exactly where we are supposed to be.
