Flight of the Soul

Thank you, God.  Thank you, Life.  Thank you, Everyone.  You are the light of the world.

No matter what is going on, no matter what is coming up in your world, there is love.

Give thanks. Give love. Let it be.

Amen.

I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope,
for hope would be hope for the wrong thing.
And wait without love. For love would be love,
of the wrong thing.
Yet there is faith.
But the faith and the hope and the love, are all in the waiting.
And the darkness shall be the light
and the stillness the dancing.

~ T.S. Elliot

Give thanks. Give love. Let it be.

Grateful, so grateful
Thankful, so grateful
Grateful, so grateful
Thankful, so thankful
It is wonderful to have you as part of the Flight of the Soul BeliefNet.com Community.
Love, Mel

Margaret Mitchell’s character Scarlett O’Hara had it down in Gone With The Wind

“I won’t think of this or that bothersome thought now. I’ll think about it tomorrow.” Generally when tomorrow came the thought either didn’t occur at all or if it did was so attenuated by the delay it was not very troublesome.

Pull a page from the old south and free the moment from any tyranny born of your ‘thinking.’ Put that thought off, allowing all the Love to flourish free from the thought which will not worry you in the new light of tomorrow.

You can lean on my faith it is all possible, because it is. You are most certainly not alone. We do this together because we are in it together. Love always remains the answer.

Peace be with you in the echoes of tomorrow as emerging ideas grow stronger when shared as the inner and outer man come into harmony.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May love extend through you and flourish within you.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

Lorna Jane Beverly Center Dance from the Heart Class AMP EXPERIENCE

Open your heart fully. Let the essence of your self radiate today and blossom with every word you speak.

“Around me the trees stir in their leaves
And call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.

And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
“and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine.”

– Mary Oliver When I Am Among the Trees from Thirst –

Let the shimmering ripple of nature expand through your being
Let the light glow filling your heart with full flowing presence
Let that beautiful expression of love reflect on the wind
Expanding outward amplifying and attune with all the sounds of the world

Make today a beautiful reminder that everyone is here to shine, with light and love.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

Allow everything to open up in the place of connection where walls and separation crumbles and falls away surrendering to the giving and receiving of love in its purest form. “Free of the constraints of the lie you have been telling yourself forever” and remember the infinity loop of heaven on earth in the fullness of interdependent connection to someone else within the truest space of the sacred relationship with the divine in covenant in the most miraculous part of the universe.

In understanding your humanness you understand spirit in this reality of Love.

Surrender your defenses and open your heart. It is okay. You are not alone. You are not alone in your feelings, You are not alone in your joy, You are connected in that space of my heart.

May I surrender over

Any thoughts

that are too small for me

Laying at rest in peace

To the highest form of joy

Getting my self

Out of the way

To be of service

To what wants to be born

Amen.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May love extend through you

experiencing the harmony of your life.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

Be willing to have the truth Lovingly blossom. Keep your eyes attune to the whispers on the wind listening to what’s required for your soul’s growth. Use your listening heart to uncover the truth in each circumstance. Let the answer surprise you. Be curious, take a breath, allow the moment to unfold without pre-conceived ideas.

“How many more times is (fill in the blank and it isn’t pretty) going to happen before I stand up for myself. Before I tell the truth. How many more times will a pattern repeat until I am ready to do things differently?” As Will Rogers said “don’t do the same thing and expect a different result. Do things differently. Get different results.”

Do yourself and your community a favor and break the chains of any fear or addiction and remember the truth about who you are and what Love is and means.

Allow something new to take flight.

Flip the switch, ignite the field, walk into the light of truth. Your truth. As a friend of mine likes to say “don’t settle for the mild river of misery.” Become a tuning device allowing love to flow through you and radiate from you expanding outward without reserve.

May you see with your heart and be able to recognize the truth in every situation you encounter.

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.

Free your mind and honor your expression’s deepest truth.

“My mind is a bad neighborhood, I don’t like to go alone.”  — Anne Lamont

Kick out the offending elements and the crazy self talk. Let drop any thoughts that are not loving and take a stroll through your mind in the warm embrace of freedom. Standing up to fearful thinking walking through the fire knowing you w
ill emerge lighter through the effort.

Take a stand in your life making your well being the center of every decision you make. Assume a position of strength and love in every encounter by honoring your needs. They are important.

When you assume a position in your heart standing for the truth, no matter how terrifying, it enables all parties involved in the encounter and drama to be free. In the light of this kind of truth you bare witness to the magnificence of possibility that is unhinged of the past opening up the world to untold possibility where we are celebrating the power that lives within each of us to rise up. It is time to take a stand for the person who needs it most. Yourself. Demand a little more of yourself today than yesterday. Remember who you are. Where you’ve been good you are going to need to be great and where you’ve been unconscious you are going to wake up and take a stand for magnificence. A rising tide raises all ships is not just a metaphor, it is a deep psychological pattern.

The one thing you can be sure of… the person standing in front of you, driving next to you, working down the hall has experienced, or is experiencing as much trauma as you. Be kind. Be a light so others, our children, our neighbors, our communities, here and across the globe, can rise and shine. Everyday. Fully nourished and safe from suffering.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

Please reveal to me what is beyond my current ability to see expanding the person I am —

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

LOVE IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES

“To love is to see myself in you and to wish to celebrate myself with you. What I love is the embodiment of my values in another person. Love is an act of self-assertion, self-expression and a celebration of being alive.” – Nathaniel Branden

Allow space to create a loving experience. Honor yourself and the things you love as a way to grow and expand the world you see. Enjoy a new center of loving gravity for your expanding grace in equal power.

It is all a meeting place of loving expressive abundance where we are sharing the vision of the heart.

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.

Lots of Love, Mel

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

Renaissance woman, Sandra McCurdy, intends to Love Unconditionally.

Melanie Lutz Love Land

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.

Flight of the Soul on Beliefnet.com continues to seek inspirational voices.

 

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
