Flight of the Soul

Give today over to open your heart wider than you ever thought possible.  Take time to remember how much love is available in your life.  Make each hello a time to love and a time to share the precious thoughts on your mind.

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

Today is your day for each second to represent the ever increasing joy and rhythm of your life in love.

On the planet today 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 & no matter what the question, Love Always Remains the Answer.

Open up to different thinking; where peaceful ideas are our imagination’s new army.

Make today and everyday a time to love openly and wholeheartedly.

Speak that love out loud.

May you always be surrounded by love today and everyday and may each sweet beat of your heart reveal ever increasing waves of pure divine everlasting love.

Lots of Love,

Melanie

4_1_2013The powerful belief in a divine, loving presence that binds all life creating a luminosity of experience that transcends the surface realities is the cornerstone of humanity.  It is the cornerstone of the discipline of Love necessary to carry you past the fear of your days.

We exist in this moment full and complete extending love with each breath, enjoying the ebb and flow of Love’s power as we feel the steely strength of purpose.

We are in the second half of our first 100 days and the mountain has been crested and we are enjoying the return of all the love we have extended 1000 fold.

We are learning to bring things out of our unconscious into the reality of the human form with love.  It is a mastery and a process and in the end you do nothing but allow something to work through you that is already whole and complete that wants to come through and be visible in its full glory.

Use the strength of love to lead the way. Stop being so hard on yourself. No blame. No self judgment. Total acceptance.  Remember today that ACIM thing what you see as failure. God sees as success.  What you see as success, can be a failure, who is to say.

Use love to nourish your growth, allowing and practicing to let your heart exercise the spirit of magnificence.  Say today and everyday “I know Love, I understand its power and I am here to practice it in all my interactions!”

Enjoy!

lots of love,

Melanie

OneRepublic nails the idea of owning the love that resides within.  

      Sing in the river
      The lessons I learned

No matter what happens all is well and all will be well.  We are merely getting stronger, day by day, one loving action by one loving action.

Take today to “Give the miracles you have received.”  Take the lessons you’ve learned and showcase with your action what you have learned.

I saw this quote in an office of a Social Worker who day in and day out faces those, who are at the end of their financial line, at the end of their hope in working to provide for their families, at the end of their faith that a different possibility was available to them, meeting each story and person with a smile in her heart. 

Everyone can be great
Because everyone can serve
You don’t have to have a degree to serve
You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve
You only need a heart full of grace
A soul generated by love.

Words by Martin Luther King Jr. on a faded piece of copy paper hanging blue thumbtacked to the office cubicle wall permeate the day in and day out efforts that unfold as these Angels work within the boundaries of a system pushed to its limits stretching where they can and living in a practice of humanity where everyone is treated with respect. Where the difficulties of circumstance continue to grow but who never stop believing a kind word, a practice of service and an action of love can transform someone’s life.

Make today a day where you brighten someone’s day.  Be great in your actions and your efforts.

Lots of Love,

Melanie

“From where I’m standing the sun is shining all over the place.”

Give it a whirl… 

The sun’s in my heart and I’m ready for love.

Gene Kelly wasn’t just Singing in the Rain. He was singing AND dancing in the rain. 

laugh at clouds
So dark up above
keep the sun in your heart
And get ready

 

Step up your practice. Move through any resistance and don’t forget to dance out the other side refreshed, revived and aglow.

In Love.

Enjoy this moment.

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

Open your heart and Live.

Fully.

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.

Do it.

I’m serious.

Now.

Enjoy this moment.

For me.  I like to have a song to help me along the way…

This little light of mine. I am going to let it shine. Let it shine.

Here’s two different expressions of This Little Light of Mine a Gospel favorite of mine, one from an African Children’s Choir, the other from the inimitable Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

In the spark of a breath

Each of us is an act of peace

Lit up by the power of our constant pulse of being…

Establishing a frequency… to surrender.

What you are remains unchanged.  Today is the day to remember the truth of your purpose and live it with grace.

Day Fifty Eight of  #LoveLand101

“Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become. ” -Unknown

Today is an easy one. Let love flow establishing a frequency to surrender removing any blocks to the awareness of love’s fullest presence.

Let what naturally wants to be expressed have its day in the sun.

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.
lots of love,
Melanie

My heart hurts when I hear the ideas and thoughts that spring up when tragedy strikes, or for that matter anytime there is something that happens that triggers us and the reaction blows up creating chaotic energy with a rush to do something.

Today, is the day to Hold On.  Help in the form of more love than you can ever imagine is on the way.

It reminds me of a neighborhood meeting I attended to talk about adding sidewalks to improve the safety of the heavily car traveled roads and what we might be able to do about re-paving the streets, when one of the neighbors hijacked the conversation with her personal fear about her house catching on fire and her being trapped in a blazing inferno and her inability to sleep.  Off target, yes, a reality in her world, most certainly, but not something of the light to worry about and project outward.

The Head of the Fire Department who was leading the meeting took a moment to assure the woman with, ‘My people in the Firehouse just up the street are on call to protect and serve without fail.’  The Woman smiled at the kind statements as he continued supporting her ability to rest at ease in the larger context of ‘no matter what happens’ everything will be okay.

Something we can all adopt at the deepest level.

Personal fears are just that fear.  Fear is part of our humanity and in love’s opinion is unproductive, and quite simply, not to be too much of a shocker when it comes up, truly does not exist as a reality when we receive love into our hearts.

Stay focused on the task at hand.  Listen to guidance from your own intuition and don’t get derailed by insane undisciplined thinking.

Whatever is going on, take a breath, experience a connected moment within and HOLD ON.

You don’t need to do anything, you do not need to react, you only need to experience the love available in this moment and the next moment will take care of itself.

Enjoy Alabama Shakes singing their hit “Hold On.”

So, bless my heart,
Bless my mind,
I got so much to do, 
I ain’t got much time
So, must be someone up above 
Saying come on girl, 
You got to get back up.
You got to hold on.
Yeah you got to hold on.

Remember today your mechanism to turn fear into love.  Allow love to dissipate your need to react and open up to responding with love.

Thinking is meant to be used in service of love.  Anything else is in-sane-ity

lots of love,
Melanie

#LoveLand101Love is an experience we get to practice every day, with each breath. Through this practice we learn that responding when we are centered with Love creates miracles and quells our human nature to react with our ingrained defensiveness, which only leads to fearful decision making, inadvertently causing separation and hurt.

That which unites us is the underlying responsibility of every conversation. It is one Nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Under God.

Take today to understand the meaning of ‘all things are echoes of love;

Let the echoes of love transform any unloving action or thought and allow love to give them back to you as miracles which joyously proclaim you happiness.

Stand with me today and everyday in this practice of loving thought in action.

When someone seems to be unkind, shift your thinking into different possibilities, maybe they have forgotten the truth, maybe they are distracted with worry, etc.  Whatever it is remind them with a blessing of Love.

Have this be what America stands for. Have this day be one in which honor and respect and understanding rule the land.

Live your life as a testament to the total commitment to humanities re-birth from fear to love.

Enjoy.

Lots of Love,

Melanie

Michael Jackson was a recognized genius of his time who died way to soon. In every way his legacy continues to inspire, inform and entertain and for some reason on this day, which happens to be in the beginning of a New Year, I can’t help singing “Wanna be starting Something. Got to be starting something.”

Today is the day to start something loving, to ignite the flame of truth and restore the heartbeat to something long thought frozen over. In MJ’s spirit and that of his collaborators and the dream and space he held for so many it is time to take a look at the man in the mirror and make a change.  Whatever change will bring you the most radiant expression of your fullest light.

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change

Start something by making a change to be more loving, simply and with all your heart and soul, right now.

Found this original video clip from Michael Jackson’s MOONWALKER movie…

Enjoy!

Listen to your surroundings and find the sounds of joy.

Hear the sounds of Love that fill the world of the Earth’s heart.

Take today to remember as Rumi wrote – ‘Whatever I was looking for was always you.’

Every search begins and ends within, in the full presence of all light that is your essence.  Everywhere you look you are surrounded by the embrace of all that is divine.  Plant whatever seeds remind you of this truth.  Plant them in the hearts of your friends, in the minds of strangers and in the embrace of your loved ones. There is no greater miracle than to hear beyond the ears and to love with all your heart, radiating outward from source expanding creations power with each incredibly fortuitous breath of life.

Allow for the grandest expression of light to bring forward all the seedlings necessary for the re-birth of our creative infrastructure of peace.  Deliver that which opens the flood gates for all to come.  Enabling the little ones to experience the safety of its source.  Offering this unconditional love allows roots to spring forward and divine flowering to flourish, grounding the earth.  Living in the oneness of all that is so that the cycles and the flow of nature can work its powerful magnificence.  Enjoy, and as you do, when you ask what is our responsibility in this day and age where consciousness oozes out of every projection, where love waits beyond the fear, the answer is faith.  Faith in the unseen.  Faith in Love.  Faith in each other and faith in a God that is in us but not of us. Faith in that relaxing beautiful nature of the divine father and the earth mother to do what they do.  Extend the creationism of birth and light to shine as brightly as possible, in all its forms as the absence of self and the wholeness of what will be.

What has been, is undone, and what will be, has begun.

 

Lots and lots of Love and blessings today and everyday.

 

Melanie

 

Hello Strength….

Today’s offering is a Mantra for strength using the RAM seed sound “rum”

Take a deep breath extending from the center navel chakra manipura and the body’s power centre.

Exhale.

Begin to say “Rum” for the RAM seed sound. Keep breathing saying “Rum” from your power centre.

Until you feel stronger Use your tone and breath to ease into your power centre and achieve the mantra’s intention full and total Harmony.

Rise Up.

Be a light to the world.

Here’s a mantra to song expanding on the RAM energy adding the Sanskrit seed sounds to revive and ignite your vibrational core.

Mantra’s are spoken expressions of energy that vibrate with healing energy inviting more and more into your consciousness.

To support your efforts, I share a teacher of mine that started my practice of Mantra based meditation, Thomas Ashley Farrand.   Farrand’s work focused on bringing this ancient technology and language forward.  In his book “The Ancient Power of Sanskrit Mantra and Ceremony: Volume I” he shares his insights on Om Namah Shivaya as:

“While this mantra has no direct translation. The sounds relate directly to the principles which govern each of the first five chakras on the spine…Earth, water, fire, air, ether. Notice that this does not refer to the chakras themselves which have a different set of seed sounds, but rather, the principles which govern those chakras in their place. A very rough, non-literal translation could be something like, ‘Om and salutations to that which I am capable of becoming.’  This mantra will start one out on the path of subtle development of spiritual attainments.  It is the beginning on the path of Siddha Yoga, or the Yoga of Perfection of the Divine Vehicle.”

Again, mantras are spiritual formulas for working with universal energies expressed through you. They are designed to eliminate obstacles as we progress spiritually.

Allow that source of energy to do its stuff within.

If Mantra’s call to you – check out Thomas Ashley Farrand’s work here.  It will foster the divine experience that can not be defined by words.
