David Whyte On William Wordsworth – Mels Love Land Day 1

posted by Melanie Lutz

It is always a treat to see one of the greats in spoken word and discourse on the poetic tradition, David Whyte talking and reading his poems in person. A recent Saturday morning in Santa Monica, California at the First Presbyterian Church found Mr. Whyte touching deeply on one of his favorite topics, igniting the soul of passionate creative expression, this time discussing William Wordsworth and the moment in his work Wordsworth committed to his life’s work and love, Poetry.

“After dancing all night, Wordsworth walked into the morning light somatically alive, casting his eyes on the beauty of day break, once and for all dedicating his life to sharing/writing his poetry free of the burden and besiegement of other’s voices.”

(I love the use of ‘somatically alive’ in reference to a post night of dancing.)


Why Love Always Wins.

posted by Melanie Lutz

There are more good people than bad people.  There is more kindness than there is hate. No matter how dark it seems, there will always be light. No matter how much fear or depression or uncertainty or unknowing, life happens and love begins again.



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
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:


‘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.

Life is an amazing gift, and in cherishing the moments, remembering the lessons, in practicing the truth, Vanessa by the Sea reminds people of the immense power of love that resides within our lives to shift perceptions, creating everyday miracles, no matter what the circumstance. Vanessa by the Sea follows writer Melanie Lutz as she “walks into the water” of true being ness in equanimity with the soul in this spiritual exploration of waking up to the deeper conversation of life.

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.

posted by Melanie Lutz

Somewhere beyond the sea, somewhere my lover stands on and watches the ships that go sailing.

Somewhere beyond the sea, she is there watching for me.

If I could fly like birds on high,

it’s far beyond the stars


Enjoy this Flight of the Soul note to take loving action.  Dr. Jamie Turndorf, PHD. writes of our relationships that transcend the physical world In her work Love Never Dies: How to Reconnect and Make Peace with the Deceased.   We are always connected in the heart and all our deepest expressions of love are embodied in an eternal present available in this moment and the next.


When connection and love live on, fear is banished and relationships can grow and heal as never before. Begin opening your mind and your heart today!

Take a moment to embody the way your heart connects to the past and the present and the future and the miracles of our relationships beyond the body. Life has a magnificent way of reminding us love is ever present and our beloveds are with us, as are our angels and inner counselors and players and brothers in our interconnected webs of reality.

Life is a miracle.  Head beyond the beyond of the physical and experience a new reality of the heart.  Love into and through your heart and open into a vision of the world where light flows.

If you have a chance to check out Dr. Jamie’s work or whatever connection creates peace in your heart, now is the time to experience the grace of support.


Reconnect and enjoy all your relationships in peace and love.

Lots of Love, Mel

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.

Enjoy Nicholas McCarthy first performance at the Kennedy Center performing fantasy in G Minor By Bach/Liszt.

If you think there is something you can’t do, think again.


Have fun out there.

Love, Mel
