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

Day One – You Can Do What You Think You Can Not Do.

posted by Melanie Lutz

Believe it.

Set your own path. Follow your intuition. Step out of your comfort zone and recalibrate your system. My first mentor taught me not to try to be better than my competitors but to constantly try to be better than my last effort.

Within this endless improvement project of life in constant motion in constant creation within the forces of nature. We understand what is necessary in the structure of the society of our life. In our flexibility in our understanding reclaiming its true nature. There isn’t anything that really needs to be brought forward. Everything necessary for your full unfoldment lies waiting in the power of your faith.  Everything  lives and interacts with our faith and everything that is necessary for the evolution of our bare naked soul in every encounter waits for that enactment of love.

Like Eleanor Roosevelt wrote in You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life   “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. ‘ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Take this moment. Breathe deeply and take that step into your faith.

smiles,

Melanie

Let Love Work Through You: Five Inspirations for Profound Inner Peace

posted by Melanie Lutz

1)  SEEK TO BE STILL

Let everything reveal itself exactly as it is exercising your inner musculature of not doing and just be. Seek for those quiet moments of grace in the expulsion of your breath.

Perfect stillness comes in the deepening connection to your truest self.  It exists in the chaos of living. Those moments of grace where we are free from our egos grasp and the bombardment of humanity.

“I want in fact to borrow the language of the saints — to live “in grace” as much of the time as possible… By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be transformed into outward harmony. I am seeking perhaps what Socrates asked for in the prayer from the Phaedrus when he said, “May the outward and inward man be at one.” I would like to achieve a state of inner spiritual grace from which I could function and give as I was meant in the eyes of God.” – Anne Morrow Lindberg

While you are practicing that certain inner stillness — don’t forget, the darkness and emptiness of that space as Goethe put it allows us “to hold it all” to enter the rich conversation with mother earth and go inward, to gestate the next planting.

May you be lead to a profound, blessed opening in your vision of what is into all that awaits…

Enjoy the stillness of peace of mind, to a resonating love filled beat in full beauty and abundance everywhere accomplishing harmony’s hum!

 

2)  LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITION

Deep listening is the most direct route to connecting to your still small voice, to those whispers of spirit. Staying open in this field of possibility allows us to be used by universal purpose.

You know when you listen to that voice, that feeling, and you know when you don’t. The universal symphony is always broadcasting the most divinely inspired message guiding us along our journey freeing up our life to unbridled purpose when we tune in. Connecting to that space and the deeper river of consciousness is easier when we are open to listening.

The world can change in an instant of deep listening. 

Intuition empowers light, pushes away the darkness and gives endlessly offering never ending wisdom. It does not arrive in an absolute knowing. Often it is the exact opposite but it operates and is a language nonetheless. A language we learn through listening. Trusting. A language we can all learn. Living in its embrace takes practice and exercise. I like to think of it as awakening and energizing energy expanding outward from source. Intuition is the way the earth nourishes harmony. It allows us to move past feelings and into the space of our knowing. Intuition reanimates the tingling being of the true essence.

The deepest most intense form of living and loving is listening to your intuition. Tuning in keeps you connected to the moments of your life and the never ending waves and vibrations of divine inspiration. Always broadcasting.

A reminder. In listening we return home.

May you surrender your defenses, open your heart and love freely, listening in full harmony with your being.  May you listen as if your life depended on it.

 

3)   GIVE IT OVER

It’s amazing how when you surrender and let go, through the fear, into the unknown you activate and open up the space for what you need to show up.

Without fail.

Surrender over any thoughts that are too small for you.

Laying at rest in the peace your life

To the highest form of joy 

Getting your self

Out of the way

To be of service

To what wants to be born

Surrender your defenses and open your heart. It is okay. In accepting your instinctual grasping and feelings as part of the wholeness of who you are, in saying “Yes!” to giving it over. You are releasing any self induced unconscious judgment taking the largest step into self love and release.

This surrender to the all healing force and source where everything is possible creates total freedom to go in a different direction and allow the feelings of the deeper waters to take hold allowing the flow of creation to work through you.

When you give it over you are afforded insight into the human heart baring witness to the light bulb quantum moments of limitless possibility, reconnecting and resurrecting parts of yourself, detoxing from whatever weighs you down, lightening up everything by giving whatever it is over to God to do the heavy lifting.

“I guarantee you one step in this direction will be met 1000 more.” This process is the way to exercise our humanity.

May you surrender your defenses, open your heart and love freely, listening in full harmony with the deepest space of your being. May Love extend through you experiencing the harmony and bliss through every fiber of your DNA.

 

4)  CHERISH THE MOMENT

Life offers up so many moments of reflection, of thoughtfulness, and of sharing. In cherishing each perfect breath you live in gratitude surrounded by a community of highly intuitive, loving and deeply connected souls.

Hold dear each and every person, each and every moment, place and thing that you get to experience. Breath into the sweetness of each instant and watch the moments expand.  Faith is gratitude in this moment and the next and all there is.

A dear comedy writer friend of mine shared a tiny detail of his process in handling the massive re-jection and ongoing notes and the general ‘not getting it’ that takes place with his work. He made a decision long ago that when someone did say something nice he would take it at face value imagine-ing the kind thought floating directly into his heart taking full residence, hugging and embracing the feeling of acceptance in its entirety.  

Accept the compliment, receive the blessing, don’t reject the nice things people say. Cherish the nice things people have to say, be grateful for the kindness, and accept the blessings being offered without self judgment deflecting it, truly absorbing the feeling deeply into the seat of your soul.

May you be lead to a profound opening in your vision of what is into all that awaits…

 

5)  CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE

 

Celebrate your life
in its ever radiating glow
allowing your heart to rise and flow
expanding with each breath
 
Let only Joy be your name
Let only Love remain
 
Gladly give up your fear
Move into eternal joy
Stand in the truth
Balanced and at peace
Returned to full awareness
Celebrating your life
 
Let your heart rise and flow
expanding through your breath
In an ever radiating glow
Restore your blissful self
to its rightful seat
Inviting your heart space
to unlock the treasure chest of recognition
Prospering in all ways and means
Revealing what is already yours
In service to your full magnificence
Striking a tune the likes of which is only played by your soul
The humm of which cascades ever forward
Gently with force
Exploding
The crucible of your being
Now
 
Free
In Harmony
Restore your blissful self to its rightful seat
In Love
 

Open your heart. Free your mind. and live your life out loud as you celebrate everything large and small honoring your self.

“It’s our time. Breathe it in. There are worlds to change.”

Get your cheering squad in place, build a foundation brick by brick, take the steps, one by one, and never listen to your doubts, I’m not sure why we have them, as near as I can figure it’s the Twisted Sister of “I’m not good enough.” And that my brothers is not the truth. You are more than good enough.

Something is stirring

Shifting ground

Edges are blurring

All around

And yesterday is done – Stephen Sondheim

This is where it begins. With you. With me.

Celebrate. Celebrate. Celebrate.

Dance. Dance. Dance. to your own music.

“Stay centered without losing your shorts.” (From THE ELEGANCE OF THE HEDGEHOG by Muriel Barbery : )

May you feel nourished as you grow blossoming into action

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

Tonight is the Night… Full Moon Harvest

posted by Melanie Lutz

From my friend Nicholas Pratley (Soul Cycle) ps.… (Love it!)

FULL HARVEST MOON IN ARIES (8 degrees) Saturday, September 29, 2012, 8:20 pm PDT and 11:20 pm EDT

This may be the hottest Full Moon of the year, as it aligns within a degree of the continuing Uranus–Pluto square, bringing those evolutionary forces into high gear. We must go forward; there is no going back and no staying the same. What we are hearing from around the globe, in the media, is the death rattle of the old paradigm and the birth pangs of a new reality. We are all going through this together, each in our own way, at our own level of awareness. The more understanding and supportive we can be toward each other, the easier and faster the transition will occur.

Several factors point to an upsurge of feminine power. Venus, the traditional ruler of both Libra and Taurus, is within one degree of an exact square to the lunar nodes in Scorpio–Taurus, awakening the Goddess of Love and Beauty in each of us and urging us to transcend traditional roles for men and women. Venus represents what we value and our self-worth as well. Mars, the traditional ruler of Aries and the mythic God of War, conjoins the North Node and squares Venus, pushing us to protect what matters most to us. Saturn enters Scorpio on October 5, ending its once-every-29-years passage in Libra, which began on October 29, 2009. Saturn forms a mutual reception, (when the ruler of Scorpio, Pluto, is in Capricorn, and the ruler of Capricorn, Saturn, is in Scorpio) with Pluto in Capricorn for the next three years, which amplifies the need for the responsible use of power and resources. Saturn in Scorpio fuels us to heal old trauma and deal with our shadow. Before we can rebalance the masculine and feminine on Earth, we must balance them within ourselves.

As we venture into new territory, we are being guided and supported by invisible forces and that a spiritual power is ever ready to nudge the wayward consciousness to return to center. Be bold. Be conscious and connected. And “Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” (John Wooden)

 

Some excerpts are from The Mountain Astrologer by Stephanie Austin.

 

A Full Moon symbolizes the fulfillment of the seeds planted at a previous New Moon or some earlier cycle. Each Full Moon reminds us of the seeds that may be coming to maturity, to their fullness, to fruition, to the place where the fruits or gifts are received. It may seem that fulfillment of our goals takes a long time. Some intentions may manifest within the two week phase prior to the next New or Full Moon. Some however, depending on their complexity, may take a much longer time. Just remember that our thoughts and emotions set Universal Action in motion and much work takes place behind the scenes as everything is orchestrated for fulfillment. Keep visualizing your goals as though you have already attained them and they will eventually manifest. Do not concern yourself with current conditions or worry about controlling it. The universe takes care of those details. Just keep seeing what you want and give no energy to what you don’t want. Patience is required.

PERSONAL MOON CEREMONY Find the time to have your own private Moon Ceremony. You have a three day window of energy in which to manifest your intentions. The day before, the day of, and the day after.

For the Full Moon, jot down two or three areas of your life you want to clean up. The Full Moon is the time to release or get rid of the things that no longer serve you, so by the next New Moon your slate is clean for new beginnings, or fertile for the planting of new seeds.

Possible phrasing: I now release______ from my life. I now release my destructive ________ patterns. I now let go of fear, jealousy, anger, envy, negative thinking, etc… Remember, think and envision as though you have already let go of what you have released. See yourself free and living your dreams. Thoughts are things and the brain manifests exactly what you show it in the form of thoughts and visuals about yourself. The Buddha said, and I am paraphrasing, “We are the sum total of our thoughts up to today. ” If we want to be different then we must change our thoughts. What you think about grows!! “If you always do what you’ve always done, then you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” CONSCIOUS CHANGE is the key.

The Power of the People… How to Survive a Plague

posted by Melanie Lutz

I love this documentary’s spirit. I love its message and there is no doubt you can feel the passion and purpose dripping from its trailer.

YouTube Preview Image

“At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love.  It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality… We must strive every day so that this love of living humanity will be transformed into actual deeds, into acts that serve as examples, as a moving force.”
– Che Guevara x

I live in Los Angeles, the City of Angels, and one of the consistent birthplaces of everyday revolutionaries.  It is the home of so many caring individuals who day in and day out lay it all on the line.  You need look no further than the Aids crisis to understand the idea that in the face of fear.  In the face of we don’t know what to do, there is the human spirit of resilience within.   As we approach the annual AIDS walk  on October 14, 2012 it is a good time to reflect on the power that lies in the heart of each of us that when woken up is unstoppable and eternal.

Check it out…

The story of the power of the people, all the people, to combat ignorance and ineptitude and apathy and fear by refusing to take a death sentence as the reality is a pure inspiration.

When you think there is nothing you can do.  Challenge yourself and do something.  Then once you have done something.  Do more.

With love.

Infuse great love in small actions

posted by Melanie Lutz

Great Things Grow From Tiny Actions. “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “Move from here to there” and it will move.” (Matthew 17:20) 

Every expression of love is magnificent and when practiced in the present moment with the smallest gesture has the power to change the world.  In fact as the saying goes it is the only way significant change has ever been made.

The truth is Love lights the way and unhinges unlimited possibility.

“Doing little things with great love makes them truly great!”  St. Francis de Sales  author and spiritual leader noted for his work Introduction to the Devout Life and the Treatise on the Love of God infused his life opening to the sacred heart with Love as the deepest connection beyond time and space.

Let the seeds we plant today be a blessing to those around us, uniting Lovingly with all the world.

Have a wonderful day!

lots of Love,

Melanie
