Create Harmony By Thinking Big Picture – Day Sixteen of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

We are connected in ways we can’t even imagine.  Don’t let your pin point of perception color your entire perspective.  Imagine the larger canvas of the world as you move through your days.  We are a part of the story as we are the star in that story.

Enjoy the story of the Colors.

Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel:  all claimed that they were the best, the most important, the most useful, the favorite.

GREEN said:  “Clearly I am the most important.  I am the sign of life and of hope.  I was chosen for grass, trees, leaves – without me, all animals would die.  Look over the countryside and you will see that I am in the majority.”

BLUE interrupted:  “You only think about the earth, but consider the sky and the sea.  It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the couds from the deep sea.  The sky gives space and peace and serenity.  Without my peace, you would all be nothing.”

YELLOW chuckled:  “You are all so serious.  I bring laughter, gaiety, and warmth into the world.  The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow, the stars are yellow.  Every time you look at a sunflower, the whole world starts to smile.  Without me there would be no fun.”

ORANGE started next to blow her trumpet:  “I am the color of health and strength.  I may be scarce, but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life.  I carry the most important vitamins.  Think of carrots, pumpkins, oranges, mangoes, and pawpaws.  I don’t hang around all the time, but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you.”

RED could stand it no longer.  He shouted out:  “I am the ruler of all of you – I am blood – life’s blood!  I am the color of danger and of  bravery.  I am willing to fight for a cause.  I bring fire into the blood.  Without me, the earth would be as empty as the moon.  I am the color of passion and of love, the red rose, the poinsettia and the poppy.”

PURPLE rose up to his full height.  He was very tall and spoke with great pomp:  “I am the color of royalty and power.  Kings, chiefs, and bishops have always chosen me for I am the sign of authority and wisdom.  People do not question me they listen and obey.”

Finally, INDIGO spoke, much more quietly than all the others, but with just as much determination:  “Think of me.  I am the color of silence.  You hardly notice me, but without me you all become superficial.  I represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep water.  You need me for balance and contrast, for prayer and inner peace.”

And so the colors went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own superiority.  Their quarreling became louder and louder.  Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightening – thunder rolled and boomed.  Rain started to pour down relentlessly.  The colors crouched down in fear, drawing close to one another for comfort.

In the midst of the clamor, rain began to speak:  “You foolish colors, fighting amongst yourselves, each trying to dominate the rest.  Don’t you know that you were each made for a special purpose, unique and different?  Join hands with one another and come to me.”

Doing as they were told, the colors united and joined hands.  The rain continued:  “From now on, when it rains, each of you will stretch across the sky in a great bow of color as a reminder that you can all live in peace.  The rainbow is a sign of hope for tomorrow.”

And so, whenever a good rain washes the world, and a rainbow appears in the sky, let us remember to appreciate one another.

smiles,

Melanie

Give Birth to Your Fullest Expression – Day Fifteen of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

#LoveLand101 City of Angels Mauya Los Angeles

Give birth to the fullest expression of your authentic self today.  Use the fertile void between each breath to expand the truth of your unique journey, divinely guided in the most perfect fashion, surrounded by support for all the tears and laughter, expanding friendships, and connections that will feed your soul.  Ignite your ancestral heritage, that vibration of eternal existence, with full nourishment providing all the new creation energy necessary for your growth.

On this day, from the heart of Los Angeles, the City of Angels, please enjoy this tiny prayer from my collection of inspired affirmations of thought I am a Magnificent Woman that was gifted to me through my own tears. It was the answer to the question that I had walked and lived after leaving my marriage not knowing which end was up.  It was the answer to ‘Who Are You?’ And a most beautiful universal gift, because once I remembered who I was, I could remember who everyone is.

It was my I AM.  I am a magnificent woman.

To kick off your practice of personal affirmations please enjoy this reading of I AM LOVED with some video from an annual family gathering called Yobs Club…

Break this prayer open on the wind. Use the energy of our intention and the magic of this moment to combine, uplift, and empower your next steps.

Ask yourself.

What is your I AM for today?

Allow the answer to be a gentle reminder to move to the rhythm of where you are.

The “I AM” statement is the most powerful statement of truth in the Bible “Be still and know that I am”  and “I am that I am.”

Take advantage of this eternal reminder of what resides within.  Utilize this I AM WHAT I AM  tool in the arsenal of connecting your to divine self.

Allow the most authentic expression.  To listen to the still quiet voice that has the answers for our highest good and share that with the world.

Every time an “I AM” is spoken, an Angels heart is filled with joy and our societal connection ignites, binding the together with a spirit in flight…

Practice your “I AM” and feel the miracle of calming peace rise within your being.
At a recent event, everyone’s I AM statement was perfect, the most interesting one came in the form of a woman who quietly took my breath away.  Her “I AM…” after the most beautiful pregnant pause … “Listening.”  

“I am listening.”

Some other examples from that day….
I am present

I am grateful

I am blessed

I am supported

I am content

I am ever evolving

Each “I AM” you share in the present builds on the last.

With everything going on in the world, today is the day to check in with yourself and listen to the truth of whatever today’s “I AM” is.

AND.

When you hear it.

Speak it.

Own it.

Live it.

Use your “I AM” to  remember the truth…

Use it to let your emotions flow, to just be in your space, allowing defenses fall away, and the surfacing emotions to release in the loving exchange.

Today.  Mine is…

“I AM LOVED!”

A love that is ever connected, ever free and whole hearted.

Enjoy!

smiles,
Melanie

The Power of Belief – Day Fourteen of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

The lie lives in our beliefs.  The illusions of the eyes creating the havoc of our joys or our misery. Get off the wheel of your beliefs.

I saw a sign for mind freak Criss Angel’s “Believe” show in Las Vegas.  Right in front of me – BELIEVE highlights the word play and hidden meaning amplifying the truth that sits in front of us waiting, the LIE is hidden in BELIEVE, and in thinking about it for just a second, there is no higher truth.  If you set your eyes on what you believe, you are setting yourself up for the fiction.

YouTube Preview Image

Almost 50 million people have watched this video.  Yes it is an illusion of consciousness.  Yes it is cool.  You can believe whatever you choose to believe.  The eyes are recording information, that information is lensed through your experiences and perceptions and is distorted by these ‘views’ of the world.

Faith is an aspect of consciousness and you can have faith in the power of the universe or you can have faith in your own beliefs, and, you don’t need to be Criss Angel coming up with a show title in Las Vegas to get it.

Start a practice of learning to see with your heart’s vision.

Seeing well beyond the lie in your beliefs.

Give this day to what love wants to show you. 
Give this day to the soft focus of what your heart and soul has been trying to tell you. 
Give this day to the flight of that magnificent expression of all that is you.

Today and everyday may you experience more clarity, more joy and more love.

smiles,

Melanie

Have Faith as Small As a Mustard Seed – Day Thirteen of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

“If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”  Matthew 17:20 (King James)

Have faith. End the story.  Nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Nothing

Shall be

Impossible.

Faith is an aspect of consciousness.  What you choose to hold dear will bear fruit.  Take today to practice placing your faith in the miraculous.  In the unending, all powerful, cycle of nature to produce the most glorious bounty.  Lose your attachment to the way things are unfolding and engage the muscle of truth of that which is in us but not of us, that does for us that which we can not.

Life is a dual expression.  There is light and there is dark.  There are two sides to each idea and two sides to every story. When we let ourselves embrace the mystery, releasing our attachment to the story and remember beyond and within all of it is the full expression of God’s work.  Faith is enacted.

Faith is the belief in that which we can not see.  It is the truth that in stepping into your life fully entrusted to God, doors will open where we thought there were walls, people we don’t know and have never met will show up with their heart open igniting the flame of our efforts into the grandness of that unified field.  There isn’t much else to say about all the fabulousness that takes place in this practice of faith. There isn’t  anything to do in this space of transformation where you are waiting for that instant of complete amalgamation in the alchemical process where everything gives over to that new elemental creation.  Enjoy today in the faithfulness of each moment, remembering you are held and you are whole and you are most certainly loved.

 

And then let us arise and go in faith along the way to Him.
Now we are sure we do not walk alone.
For God is here, and with Him all our brothers.
Now we know that we will never lose the way again.  — ACIM
 
 
Where you start is not where you need to finish.  Change is not an abstract, it is a daily roller coaster of which every hour brings the possibility for a miracle and every day you get to wake up to a new day, embracing where the day will take you, without any knowledge of what the day will bring.  

 

Have faith in the energy that showcases an awesome power day in and day out in a million ways and a million miracles.  The universe has your back.  Have faith in nature’s fullest magnificence.

 

May the truth of your expression blaze forth with each breath you take reminding you to fiercely answer the call of your being. To connect to your source. To live fully in the light of the truth and to reflect the beauty that lies waiting alertly and brilliantly for your faith to sing.

Lots of Love,

 

Melanie

Let it Be – Day Twelve of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

Celebrate this moment as the beginning of a grand exploration into the meaning and power of Love. You have all the support you need to be all of you. Know you will be guided to the person, place or thing that will serve the needs of your soul. For now, let it be.Melanie Lutz Flight of the Soul #LoveLand101 Lake Shrine

Relax into the truest nature of your being.

No matter what comes forward you can fully trust in and lean on Love and Support that’s there for you. You are perfectly whole and complete now. A perfect reflection of All is One and Love is all there is.

We need look no further than the innate truth written by four lads from England…

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

— The Beatles

The ultimate rememberance that God has it handled that love is your partner and that life unfolds in faith.

Today. Now. Always.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

May your heart open in ways never before possible

revealing the deepest truth of your fullest knowing
Giving you courage, wisdom, strength

Surrounding you with Love to let it be.

smiles,

Melanie

Day Eleven of #LoveLand101 – Live in the Truth

posted by Melanie Lutz

Be willing to have the truth, your 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.”#LoveLand101 Labyrinth Tuna Canyon City of Angels Melanie Lutz

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.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude,

Melanie

Day Ten of #LoveLand101 – Stand for Something

posted by Melanie Lutz

Take a stand in your life and assume a position of strength and love in every encounter.

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.

“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but also by the men it honors and remembers.” John F. Kennedy had it right in his speech celebrating Robert Frost and the arts.

Let’s be remembered for our ability to change with grace to transform our present turmoils into peace on earth.  Let’s get really clear, in remaining passive and asleep in our own lives affects the planet.   We have challenges, for sure, things are breaking apart and falling away… However, it is not a que to give up, when Winston Churchill on the day of the French capitulation said “Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the human race lasts for a 1000 years, let them say … “This was their finest hour” he offered a space above the doubt, beyond the uncertainty and bleakness of circumstance to rise into.

Take a stand today and address what needs addressing, celebrate moments of magnificence, individuals of purpose, and every expression of love that you see, encouraging more of that kind of behavior. Uplifting every moment that follows. Leading us into a new era.

May you find the voice of truth in every circumstance allowing you to take a stand for love.

Lots of Love,

Melanie

Day Nine of #LoveLand101 – Let Love, Joy, Laughter Lead the Way

posted by Melanie Lutz

Every breath represents the beginning of a new cycle.  An opportunity to begin again. In each new breath, we get the opportunity to make a commitment to being Loving, creating a complete 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

Life happens one action at a time, one moment at a time.  In each of these, choose love.

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 the blessed interaction of your light and joy and peace.  Pure Love is the full knowing of the truth of your being.  It is showing up to be yourself.

Day Eight of #LoveLand101 – Be Committed

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 everthing.

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.

When I started my process of reclaiming the truth I started to hear these words.

 
For the next 100 days
I am going to consider the possibility that there is another way.
I won’t talk about war, I will feel peace.
I won’t talk about what isn’t working. I will experience what is.
I won’t complain about what people don’t do. I will appreciate what they do.
Cura Et Labore “with care and work”
I am going to allow myself to be uplifted.
And. Be willing to see change. In a new light.
In what’s remembered.
 
It did not stop repeating in my head until I started taking action on the message. That action has resulted in a large collection of love based messages. I have considered the possibility there is another way and it is what I live every day of my life. A life that is now filled with an expression of myself that is grounded that resonates with the gravitas of love of everything that comes my way. A life I can be proud of because it is a life that contains self respect and self reliance that I can trust my yes and I can trust my no because I know how to 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.

lots of Love,

Melanie

Day Seven of #LoveLand101 — It’s Not Where You Start. It is Where You Finish.

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ps.  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.
