Flight of the Soul

Flight of the Soul

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.”

“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.

Magnificent Affirmations – Forgiveness

posted by Melanie Lutz

Love in itself is the first and final act of life itself. Love is the presence of the eternal. All we can hope to get from an other is an expression and reflection of love that will bring up everything unlike itself – all of it available to be looked at and released in the healing space of two by two.

I take the bridge from meaningless conflict To a world of peace

I take the bridge from nowhere

To the everywhere of connection

A place of complete compassion

I take the bridge of forgiveness

I take the bridge of acceptance

I take the bridge of atonement

I transform my experience by transforming my thoughts

From fear to Love

I don’t enter illusions

Because I see the truth

Advertisement

Today, now and always I am a magnificent woman.

 

That loving center of the human heart in each moment whole and complete affecting an outward ripple of love “that no man can tear asunder.”

This magnificent journey of the soul started in love remarkably continues. Symbols we recognize, keys we are given and doors we go through.

LOVE is the WORD: I-N-S-P-I-R-A-T-I-O-N and ADVICE FOR DOING GREAT THINGS

posted by Melanie Lutz

Advice is sometimes not worth the letters that hold it together.  It is often requested and often ignored.  All of us have our own perfectly perfect inner guidance planner/system.  We are always getting the answers that are designed for our highest good and the good of all.   You have the answer for your souls calling.  Never forget to check into your own intuition and sit with your self in silence embracing the answers designed for you.

Advice can be a celebration of your authentic self as it is a reflection of your dreams in full support of your deepening knowledge of your path and expression in life.  ‪Keep in mind – in giving advice over the years (I don’t place a judgement on what has worked or hasn’t worked as every experience is supremely valuable.) There is no right or wrong. You keep asking for what you want and need and eventually you arrive at a completed project.

The following is offered in service of deeper and deeper love of your heart song.

FOCUS

Focus on being your most authentic heat warming self, share your passions, follow what thrills your soul, know what you love and what you don’t. Get experience.

DISCIPLINE

Develop a deep discipline of listening to your intuition. Whatever works for you to disconnect from the voices of the crowds and connect to your own source and purpose for being here, for telling a story, for producing a project.

LEARN TO COMMUNICATE WHAT IS IMPORTANT

Simplify, clarify and then amplify your project communications.

BE PATIENT

Practice patience.

BE THE FAUCET

Let the creative process work through you.

DO IT. JUST DO IT. (I MEAN IT JUST TAKE THAT NEXT ACTION) DO IT.

Don’t get discouraged (be down, be whatever you need to be) take the next small step forward and keep moving.

DON’T BE ATTACHED TO ANYTHING

Backward or forward doesn’t matter. Stay present to doing what is asked of you and follow up on your word.

KEEP YOUR COMMITMENT

All the promises we make and break we do to ourselves. If you make a commitment keep it. End of story.

BE RESPECTFUL TO YOUR ENVIRONMENT

Leave whatever work space you enter better than you found it, better for your loving presence.

CELEBRATE YOUR GIFTS

Share the gifts you have been given, don’t hold back, in sharing what you have come here to share you will find there is an unending expanding energy that never runs out.

ASK FOR WHAT YOU NEED

Learn how to ask for help into the heart of that powerful giving and receiving exchange. Where each party is better for having come together to co-create giving what each has to give.

BALANCE YOUR BUSINESS WITH TOTAL TIME TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR MONEY

Make sure you know how to handle your finances.

DREAM ALL THE TIME

Always return to what feels most peaceful and meets your dreams. My thing has always been the Disney thing enjoy the experience of  ‘dreams are wishes your heart makes.’  And DREAM BIG!

HEART CENTERED IS THE ONLY WAY

Let you heart lead the way.

ENJOY YOUR PASSION.

Every great expression, award, experience returns to this one connected truth of our human experience.  The truth shared through one heart in love with itself and the world connecting us and inspiring us by its naked grace.

Everyone has their own path to sharing their creative expression and working in the entertainment business and what that means is different to each of us. It takes a village is not just for raising children it is also the way the entertainment business works.

‪Opening into the questions as to your why, will give your heart support in delivering you where you need to be.

‪General advice is just that. However, keep reaching out and being curious – allow doors to open whether it is with the person you are reaching out to or someone else who has heard your request or the universe delivering the perfect person.

Advertisement

‪When you make requests the universe always answers in one way or another and as a writer remaining awake to the other spaces of the subtler energies gives you a facility to being open to change and holding the intent of your purpose (telling the truth of the human condition in projected story) without getting stuck anywhere.

Each of us has an intuition that creates the web of our destiny. We have all the answers as to what is next for us bit by bit you give all of yourself to what is in front of you planting seeds for what is next and you put it together.

‪Whatever advice feels peaceful and thrills your soul — follow that. Whatever work expands your heart and opens to a deepening sense of who you truly are, share those and keep creating.  Stay in the space of the note you came here to play and play it. Whatever movesyou follow through, have the experience, trust it will all lead you somewhere. There is no right or wrong only openings into the present moment.

Advertisement

‪My path has involved so many things and experiences and productions and self discovery and a never ending force to share the truth.

‪What does your heart and soul cry out to do that can not be denied!?  What loving action can you take right now to nourish your soul.

Awake in Heaven in the Heart of Love

posted by Melanie Lutz

You want to become a great screenwriter because you have been inspired by great screenwriting. It is as simple as that. Words on a page brought to life by actors. Those moments in the movie theater where your heart thrills at the glorious movement of images projected on a screen showcasing the true beauty of human expression, understanding and grace.

One of my favorite moments where great screenwriting is fully on display comes from the Samuel Goldwyn produced The Bishop’s Wife starring Cary Grant as an Angel that comes down to earth to help Bishop David Niven and his wife played by Loretta Young.  There are so many devastatingly beautiful moments in this movie where the screenwriter working with a wonderful director and a charismatic star weaves in biblical references in the most delicate and impactful way revealing the deepest truths lying beyond any word or feeling and always what it means to reconnect to the love in every situation.

Advertisement

Here’s a lovely re-connecting moment from the film.

YouTube Preview Image

if you want to be blown away and are a fan of Psalm 23 watch the film and catch Carey Grant drop into the power and truth beyond the words.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Advertisement

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

It is a lovely use of one of the most popular and powerful psalm’s in the Bible, shared in the context of a highly entertaining romantic comedy.

This, and many other cinematic gems live and breath in the performances and artists and writers and actors and craftsman in this era of film making.  May we rise to meet their example as we carry on the work ahead of us as story tellers.

Advertisement

Film, cinema, movies, represent the moments of inspiration in our projections of life that provide the fuel to deliver on the promise of each new blank page.  Each dream and dreamer, loving the imagination of possibility and synthesizing ideas for consumption, entertainment and in my humble estimation for enlightenment.

For fun… screen the original version and contrast it to the Denzel Washington, Whitney Houston version.

Let me know what you think.

The Day that Reminds All of Us Dreams do Come True – OSCAR

posted by Melanie Lutz

Today and everyday is a day to let our souls speak their mission and stretch into the future and develop a practice of vision.

Expand yourself no matter what your circumstance and remember as Rilke wrote to live the question.

WHY AM I HERE?

Beyond the glitz and glamour and the who is wearing what and why, beyond the business, the promotions ($75,000 gift bag – I’m looking at you) and the who wins and loses are the deeply held stories and the lives that are shared with a global audience opening up doors of inspiration and shedding light on what we on the planet need to remember.

“Each of You Who Know The Joy of Freedom are Winners.”

Gerda Weissmann Klein’s Oscar® acceptance speech for the documentary “One Survivor Remembers” chronicling her six years living with the horror of Nazi encampment offers up an open hearted expression of grace.

Advertisement

“I have been in a place for six incredible years where winning meant a crust of bread and to live another day. Since the blessed day of my liberation I have asked the question why am I here? I am no better.”

The beauty in this survivor’s story and Gerda’s sharing is that she reminds us in the face of outlasting unimaginable hardness and evil, there is open ness and there is Love.

“In my mind’s eye I see those years and faces of those who never lived to see the magic of a boring evening at home. On their behalf I want to thank you for honoring their memory. And you cannot do it in any better way than when you return to your homes tonight to realize that each of you who know the joy of freedom are winners. Thank you on their behalf with all my heart.”

Advertisement

Forgiveness does not mean forgetting it means transforming the anger and releasing that which can no longer torture you. That which is in the past. Because it doesn’t exist and can no longer hurt you. It means honoring yourself, your history, and those who have touched your life by living yours in full emblem of the truest space of a Loving heart.

Freedom is the foundation of strength and joy and as Gerda so beautifully puts it, contains the magic of choice. The choice to spend a boring evening at home and to honor each other with Love. Something that should never be taken for granted.

When the sun breaks through the darkness of a new day we get to give thanks for the joys of freedom and abundance we do have and to extend love to those we encounter. If you are tempted by the blues, and we all are, it is part of the human condition, or drawn into believing in the fear, be gentle with yourself and remember we have all been given a choice, a choice to see the Love in whatever situation we find ourselves in. When you are loving to yourself the hurts and blues and depressions become bare-able, and when the question comes up “Why Am I Here?” one answer you can count on is to shine your light as brightly and lovingly as possible.

Advertisement

Like Richard Harris at the end of Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot (the musical retelling of the story of the legend of King Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot) when realizing the battle is lost, pulls a young soldier from the battlefield to send him out into the world to tell the story of this place where freedom and joy and grace lived and breathed.

Ask every person if he’s heard the story

And tell it strong and clear if he has not

That once there was a fleeting wisp of glory called Camelot

Don’t let it be forgot

That once there was a spot

A brief and shining moment

For happy ever aftering

That was known as Camelot

Advertisement

We are here to extend Love on the planet. To act in Love and to be Loving. Nothing more is required. As this years Oscar awards© fade into memory let us remember together the part each of us plays in our own award winning dramas.

With the proliferation of technology and the advancement of weaponry to destroy it is clear there is one path through… Remembering the truth. Peace is your responsibility and Love Remains the Answer.

“One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas.”

— Victor Hugo from his History of Crime “

Leave the past behind and open up to different thinking; where peaceful ideas are our imagination’s new army.

Flight of the Soul Time – Divine Love and Wisdom on Tap

posted by Melanie Lutz

In the preface to Emanuel Swedenborg’s Divine Love and Wisdom the Latin Translator of the text talks about the sketch of a Roman Garden that adorned the title page of each of Swedenborg’s books under the phrase Cura Et Labore “with care and work.” The image of a beautiful garden with a cherub like Angel watering the plants tending to the well loved garden’s growth and harmony strikes to the core of any process.

It is a reminder of the wisdom and grace that exists when discipline is applied to commitment in realizing the fruits of our labor. It represents the opportunity for us to make manifest the joys of a life fully lived in divine Love. When we enrich each moment with care and work, making conscious choices. Free of the energies that keep us bound. We allow nature to take its course in harmony without calling out the struggle, we effortlessly step into the full beauty of existence.

Advertisement

Move into the garden of your being remembering everything is as it is. You are exactly where you are supposed to be and you know absolutely how to tend to your needs.

Swedenborg was one of the first and my favorite dude to express the idea of religion into the revelation of light and to translate the ideas into the concept of spirituality tramping through the late 1600’s through 1772, that all the doors lead to the same place.  His roots into the ideals of mysticism are well documented and another of the Renaissance spirits who illuminated concepts outside of the current limitations of present conscious understanding.   Like Benjamin Franklin who would follow in Swedenborg’s self publishing divinely inspired writings Swederborg is an inspiration.   Men of vision and insight and continual curiosity expanding principles into the hearts and minds of humanity to lead the way forward to freedom.

Spending the end of the year enjoying the spirit and love and all the wisdom imaginable celebrating how far on the journey to discover the truth I had come was the ultimate gift.  I know how blessed I am to know what I know and to get to participate with so many of you in sharing this beautiful, wonderful life.  Thanks again for all the miracles and thanks again for the laughs and most importantly thanks for all the memories.

Keep in mind, you are enough, nothing to do to be more of who you are.

“A wise old Owl sat on an oak, The more he saw the less he spoke, The less he spoke the more he heard, Why aren’t we all a bit more like that wise old bird?”

Take today to begin new endeavors open up to new projects allow new relationships to flow while treasuring the old as the days stretch forward filled with more and more light and love.  May this new day bring you everything possible in service for the highest expression of who you are.  May you live in the fullest expression of joy and happiness possible and may you always remember whatever your circumstance the center of inner peace is yours.

35 Things I learned from Mel’s Love Land Next 100 Days of Love…

posted by Melanie Lutz

1)  Sometimes there is nothing to do but be loving. 

 

2) Things that I thought took so much time to unfold, really took no time at all upon their completion.  The experience was everything.

 

3) Mistakes mean nothing in the course of a life well lived, where the foolishness of love are the adventures of the soul.

 

4) Love is the most powerful force in every situation.

 

5) Practicing love is the exercise of the heart.

Advertisement

 

6)  Love’s perfection lies in the acceptance of each moment.

 

7) When you let love lead the way you always end up exactly where you are supposed to be.

 

8) If you are not thinking with love what you are seeing and saying (to yourself and others) is not real.  

***This one is a blink, blink, blinky mcblinkerson one, requiring a love yourself heart opening detachment and release of the ‘you’ve got to be kidding me.’

 

9) Love does not live in the past or predict the future, it is complete in this present moment, highlighting what needs present attention past the blocks self placed in front of the heart.

Advertisement

 

10) No matter what circumstance seems to be put in front of you, the deepest truth of our loving humanity is always available.

 

11) People find loving everyone tough because on some deep level we all get the Martin Luther King Jr. influenced by love statement our job isn’t to like everyone it is to love them.  So those that bug us, irritate us, drive us to the brink, are in our lives to teach us love.

 

12) When you think it hurts to much to love and you want to close your heart and call them names and point out why they are assholes, love more deeply, it only means that you love yourself enough to remember how closing your heart brings you pain.

Advertisement

 

14) Wisdom and understanding and forgiveness flow freely from an open heart.

 

15) Giving is receiving in loving action.

 

16) Losses are openings to a beautiful understanding of the magic of nature.

 

17) The work of love always being the answer – arrives at many results.

 

18) What disappears in the practice of love is not meant for you at this time.

Advertisement

 

19) Love sometimes brings in a punch in the face, this does not mean there is anything wrong with loving someone.  It means that you take back your keys, move quickly away from them.

 

20) When love becomes the way you move through the world you are a loving vortex of joy, a person in whose presence people feel the connection to the eternal.  Nothing that comes up changes that force of aliveness.

 

22) No matter how many labels, ideas, letters, slurs, hashtags, we are all the same in love.

 

23) Seeds always grow.  Plant them with love and save yourself the heartache of the weeds of anxiety and fear.

Advertisement

 

24) Love never ends and remains long beyond the form of the individual.

 

25) The earth has been spinning around for a long ass time.

 

26) There is no journey, there is only remembering the truth with love.  We choose the players we play with.

 

27) You are guilty or guiltless, bound or free, unhappy or happy, simple by choosing love over fear.


28) The soul knows where it belongs, not some of the time, all of the time.

Advertisement


29) Forgiveness is the grace of love.

 

30) Life is complicated, love is not.

 

31) Love’s expression takes different forms with various people and places in time, it continues on and keeps us connected.  

 

32) Love has no end! 

 

33) Love may express itself in one person or at one time as a mother’s love, and at another, as a romantic partner, a teacher, healer, a business partner, etc. Our sacred contracts with each other take different forms or expressions of Love.   While not all sacred relationships are meant to result in love affairs – all are the affairs/expressions of Love! One Love expression isn’t fuller, truer or more complete than the others and Love doesn’t end when our sacred contracts are fulfilled.

Advertisement

 

34) Love’s beautifully varied expressions are all facets of the same crystal! That love expresses itself in all these ways is a testament to the power and beauty of our never-ending spirits and the fact that All is One and Love is All there Is.

 

35) No matter what the question… love always remains the answer.

 

With Infinite Love and Gratitude…

January is the Month for JOY ! Joy is the Wisdom of the Heart

posted by Melanie Lutz

Joy made manifest is love.   In every way Joy is a special wisdom filled with the best of the truth of love.  A love that keeps us in strength and courage and  hope and faith and patience and the glory of all that is in each moment.

In the coming weeks, as I work through the editorial process for Vanessa by the Sea: No Matter What the Question Love Always Remains the Answer thought it would be fun to share the joy of reading and releasing words onto the page, infusing them with love and spirit, (in some cases crafting) and in others leaving the jagged edge of inspiration untouched.

May Joy flourish in your heart and mind and may all your dreams find new light and new vibrations and new loves to grow into all they are meant to be!!  May the days ahead bring more wisdom and insight and always Love as we practice untrammeled joy!
