Day Seventeen – Day of Lightening

posted by Melanie Lutz

Lightening strikes.  It is what it does.  Out of nowhere electrifying our being with a knowledge we have been darkened to. It lights that space we keep hidden from our daily thinking lighting however briefly what we need to feel and understand and see. Enlightenment isn’t a change but it is the recognition of the fiery passion that waits for the strike in that sacred encounter with the truth of who we are.

Remember the booming crack of brain lightening is yours in every moment you are willing to bare witness to the truth with love.

Marianne Williamson’s “God is the Electricity that flows between two people”  is the essence of that sacred space created in a whole relationship where there is space for all of it and space for the divine eternal energy to express and expand itself fully.

Epiphanies are openings in the chaotic projection of daily life.  They are awakenings to the truth.  They are moments of lightening strikes illuminating the field in the haze of our days.

Open yourself up today to this sacred experience between you and those you encounter.  Allow the lightening of expression to flow through you and into the communion with another.  Experience all of yourself in its entirely in the electricy of the moment and allow that strike to unfold more and more of your experience with loving yourself.

Enjoy this link to a tiny moment from Oprah’s website where Marianne shares her words of wisdom in a tight package.

Day Sixteen – Appreciate One Another

posted by Melanie Lutz

Today release the attachment to grandiosity.  Remember 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

Day Fifteen – I am Loved

posted by Melanie Lutz

Give birth to the expression of your authentic self today.  Use the 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, I offer a 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.

Break your 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.

Throughout my process of events, and speeches and talks in asking what someone’s I am was… The most interesting one came in the form of a woman who quietly approached me after my final prayer, what she said took my breath away.  Her “I am” after the most beautiful pregnant pause was … “Listening.”  

“I am listening.”

The “I AM” statement is the most powerful truth in the Bible “Be still and know that I am.”This is one of the largest tools in the human arsenal.  To listen to the still quiet voice that has the answers for our highest good.

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

Practice your “I AM” and feel the miracle of calm rise within your being.
I am present

 

I am grateful

 

I am blessed

 

I am supported

 

I am content

 

I am ever evolving

 

Each “I AM” I hear builds on the last and is filled with presence and intention.

With everthing going on in the world, today is the day to check in with yourself and listen to the truth of today’s “I AM” and when you hear it.  Own 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!”

It is an I AM to remember. A love that is ever connected, ever free and whole hearted.

Enjoy!

smiles,
Melanie

Day Fourteen – The Power of Belief

posted by Melanie Lutz

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.

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.  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.

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

Day Thirteen – Have Faith

posted by Melanie Lutz

Do you spend time making things more complicated than they need to be because you have placed your faith in unloving thinking?

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, that beyond and within this is the full expression of God’s work.  Faith is enacted.

This past year has been a challenging period in my life.  Change was not an abstract, it was a daily roller coaster of which every hour required a miracle and every day I woke up without any knowledge of what the day would bring.  Everything I tried to figure out didn’t work and on every level I was only left with a practice of faith that what looked like complete and utter failure and confusion was not the truth.  I had to hold to my faith that the center of the wheel of fortune never changes while the wheel goes round and round as I continued to take each step forward.

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
 

Faith will see you through.  Have faith that the energy that showcases an awesome power day in and day out in a million ways and a million miracles has your back.  Give it over.

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

Day Twelve – Let it Be

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.

Relax into the truest nature of your being.

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

and surrounding you with Love to let it be.

smiles,

Melanie

Day Eleven – Live 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.

“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. 

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 – Take a Stand

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 – Let Love 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 can make a commitment to being Loving, creating a 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

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 blessed interaction.  Pure Love is the full knowing of the truth of your being.

Let the Angels in your life lead the way and absolutely without hesitation let yourself go with Love, DREAMING BIG.

smiles,

Melanie

Day Eight – Make a Commitment

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 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
