Oprah Rules!

posted by Melanie Lutz

“On April 10, 1994, I wrote these words, which I keep on my desk: “Never again will I do anything for anyone that I do not feel directly from my heart. I will not attend a meeting, make a phone call, write a letter, sponsor or participate in any activity in which every fiber of my being does not resound yes. I will act with the intent to be true to myself.”

When I accepted that I was a decent, kind and giving person — whether I said yes or no—I no longer had anything to prove. I was once afraid of people saying, “Who does she think she is?” Now I have the courage to stand and say, “This is who I am.”

– Oprah Winfrey, O Magazine, What I Know For Sure
Have the courage to be who you are. Own what you Know. Share your talents.

Harvest the Fruits of Your Labor

posted by Melanie Lutz

Now that Halloween is behind us and we have switched from the “lighter half” of the year into the “darker half.” The approaching winter and it’s darkness 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.

Take this moment to seize the opportunity to own what you need to own, to fearlessly step into the darker part of the year, and to grow into the grounded rootedness of your truest self.

Mark November as your harvest time, and absolutely reap what you have sown. If your harvest is sweet, treasure your efforts. If it is sour, treasure your efforts. Remembering the lesson. In the planting we learn, in the harvest we grow and no matter what, there is absolutely always a new season to begin again.

May all your relationships be made holy including and especially the one with yourself.

May you have peace. May you have joy and may you have love. Whatever comes your way may you remember the truth of yourself and allow it to be met with grace and ease and may all your efforts be guided with a divine hand.

I ask only that love’s will be done and allow every action and thought to spring from this well of truth in absolute safety for us and with us and around us.

This is our collective will.

With infinite love and gratitude!

Embrace the Sounds of Support

posted by Melanie Lutz

Melanie LutzAs human beings on the planet today in the midst of a tremendous transformational time. It is our responsibility to speak our truth. To demonstrate to ourselves, our kids, our families and our communities the way to peace of mind. To learn how to connect to our inner voice and give it the respect it deserves. It will take practice. It will take saying things that have been buried for so long they probably aren’t true anymore. What matters is speaking out loud. Giving your still small voice a chance to amplify its deepest truth. Sometimes getting to the truth takes releasing the hounds of your fearful thinking. You must live in the space of openness and undefendedness. You will get stronger. You will develop this most critical muscle and you will showcase this tenor of self  so others can recognize what it is like to have the freedom of your unique and beautiful sound.

It took me writing five books to be able to understand the concept of speaking out loud into the clear air. I hope you enjoy this selection from my first book about getting completely bare to the most authentic expression of the soul.  I offer all of this up so your transition and transformation can be so much more elegant and effortless and free. Enjoy!

I was afraid. I was afraid I would die again. I had leapt off the cliff to end my relationship, and I would need to do it again and probably again.

I was afraid to speak as though it were my life I was living. I was afraid to live my life outside of the judgmental obervationalist I had become. I was afraid if people really knew me, they wouldn’t like me. I was afraid to lose anymore friends. I had set up an invisible bodyguard determined to protect me. This bodyguard distorted everything, clouded the connectors, questioned my perceptions, muffled my intuition and misdirected my mojo.

It was once

Then not again

My hopes at finding such

Lies within

Never once and never more

Does one so sweet

And sorrowful soar

Lights started to flicker in the distance. I saw something. It resonated. It didn’t last long enough to be recognized and then it faded. I wouldn’t let it go. I looked closer.

A flash. A moment. Your heart knows.

My way of being in the world was flawed. Long ago I had lost touch with my inner everything. I would need to reclaim it.

I knew how far I would need to go to reclaim my voice. I knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant, but I also knew, I could do it. It was me, after all. The grief and the growth and the grasping would be good things.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe said it best.

And so long as you haven’t experienced this

to die and so to grow,

you are only a troubled guest

on the dark earth.

I didn’t want to be a troubled guest anymore. I could die and grow like the best of them. I could redo myself. I could find a way to listen to my heart’s symphony, to hear that faraway aria through the distracting cries. I’ll meet myself on the other side of this new death. I could practice another way of being in the world.

What was lost could be found. David Whyte hit it hard.

The day I saw beneath dark clouds

the passing light over the water

and I heard the voice of the world speak out,

I knew then, life is no passing memory of what has been

nor the remaining pages in a great book waiting to be read.

It is the opening of eyes long closed.

It is the vision of far off things

seen for the silence they hold.

It is the heart after years

of secret conversing

speaking out loud in the clear air.

I listened as if my life depended on it.

Five From The Heart to Love You For Life

posted by Melanie Lutz

Start a practice of Loving You for life embracing the truth in each situation with love.

CARE DON’T CARRY

– Take nothing on — in essence you are compassionate but there is nothing you can do to fix another person. It is always an inside job. Listen without the need to do anything. Care about them but don’t carry anything they are dropping off – Just be love –

HEAR OR HEAL?

– Do I need to deeply receive this message or is this something I need to heal within my being? – Listening with love enables the answer to the question to be revealed –

LOVE ALL YOUR EMOTIONS

– Every feeling and emotion is welcome – You are complete and healed and whole – Nobody does it like you and there is reason for that. Don’t be caught in judgment for what comes up in the most loving and sacred space of your heart. Energies that are caught need to be released – the way they are excised good and bad are through love – Get in a practice of detaching they are really just emotions –

LIVE IN INFINITE LOVE AND GRATITUDE

– Practice gratitude and love and opening your heart in every moment – Guaranteed it will get easier and easier with practice – Let no despair darken your light – You are loved truly and whole heartedly never forget it – Love has no end and within the communication of this message within everything will be embraced –

REMEMBER YOU ARE NOT ALONE

– Know you are not alone, you are not alone in your feelings, you are not alone in your joy, you are not alone in your sadness, every thought, feeling, energy you’ve felt — We’ve all been there – No matter what happens, no matter how traumatic or devastating or light filled and joyous you are never alone. On this you can always feel safe in total confidence of the truth — You are never alone –

Tell the Truth. Tell all the Truth.

posted by Melanie Lutz

Unlock the power of the universe to deliver exactly what you need in the most authentic way in service of divine will. Tell the truth about where you are and what is going on. Don’t dwell on what it is any more or carry that secret. Believe me… it is too heavy to burden your light filled magnificent self. Share it. Release it. Love Yourself. Right now.

This practice will free you from the anxieties and projections of fear that populate your days. Sharing what you have anxiety about sharing releases possibilities. I won’t kid you sharing the truth will create a space and tenor of love in your life that may release relationships, jobs, people, family, friends from your life. Remember as you move through all of it. The truth is the truth. Like it says in ACIM – Nothing real can be threatened and nothing unreal exists. Get real now and forever. Be who you need to be. Share what needs to be shared and always live in the loving presence of your most beautiful self.

Every Finish Line is a Beginning

posted by Melanie Lutz

The end is never the end. Impermanence is the way of life. Enjoy each moment. Don’t forget to celebrate everything and always keep in mind the next event will have a beginning, middle and end — and on and on.  Live in knowing you are fully and wholly present within each activity, enjoying each step.

Don’t want anything to be different than it is. Love in the fullness of each moment. Experience the thrill, open up to the bliss and blossom into the victory of crossing the line knowing it all begins again with each breath and in each cycle.

Super Charge Your Life With Love

posted by Melanie Lutz

Love ignites the soul and is the ultimate unfolding energy of our life. Loving thought expands everything. It is the beginning and end of every story in your life inviting more and more peace of mind into your present.

Ignite your power. Super charge your creativity, your dating life, your relationships, your job, your community, your home inviting the miraculous into the full force of being simply by being more loving today than you were yesterday.

Get beyond any surface story, through the emotions and feelings and wounds dropping deeply into what lies beneath opening to explosive effortless creativity by connecting to your loving center and allowing the natural expansion and flow of energy to expand without judgment and reserve. That which is love never changes. Let the bliss of your life flow into the ocean of effortlessness that is always available. Blow the chains off that which is in you but not of you and watch everything flourish. Open your heart and experience that space beyond belief through the blocks and limiting programming simply by remembering who you are and what love is.

Love is everywhere and in everything.  Don’t take my word for it. Get into a practice and see. Think with Love and go about whatever activity is in front of you. Let go of your need to criticize yourself and everyone you encounter. Watch whatever your engagement in the activity through the eyes of perfect love. See how it feels. See what you experience. Be loving for no reason and especially be loving with those that you are closest with. It will always surprise. It may feel challenging and different to start. It does not mean it is difficult. Unloose your mind and be love. Right now.

Sacrifice is nowhere and love is everywhere. In losing the ideas that keep you in a fear filled unreality you release yourself into the bright light filled unknown of that which is eternally at play and in concert with all that is waiting to be.  l Look at it this way.

There is a garden growing and flourishing brilliantly within the ground of your being utilizing divine intelligence symbiotically blossoming in service to the highest expression of who you are. This garden is nourished by Love. In this inner space of complete love you are extending outward in the natural flow of your self.

In the preface to Emanuel Swedenborg’s Divine Love and Wisdom the Latin Translator of the text talks about the sketch of a Roman Garden that adorned the title page of each of Swedenborg’s books under the phrase Cura Et Labore “with care and work.” The image of a beautiful garden with a cherub like Angel watering the plants tending to the well loved garden’s growth and harmony strikes to the core of any process.

It is a reminder of the wisdom and grace that exists when discipline is applied to commitment in realizing the fruits of our labor. It represents the opportunity for us to make manifest the joys of a life fully lived in divine Love. When we enrich each moment with care and work, making conscious choices. Free of the energies that keep us bound. We allow nature to take its course in harmony without calling out the struggle, we effortlessly step into the full beauty of existence.

Love allows that which is in us to work through us in essence getting out of our own damn way so the co-creating that lives and breathes in nature is flowing. Move into the garden of your being remembering everything is as it is with love.

Meditating Like You Read About

posted by Melanie Lutz

There is no secret getting a daily practice of meditation in place will keep you in conscious contact to the deepest stillness of your being creating the ability to return to your center with greater and greater ease as you move through your day, avoiding the pitfalls of triggers and stress.

Meditation is the answer to your peace of mind and well being as you open to deeper presence in your work, life and relationships.

In this practice of connecting to yourself you prepare your body, mind and soul for the experience and presence of your life. There is no other way around it. No cheat to this process of slowing down, opening up and expanding the space between your thoughts.

Get in a daily routine. Create the moments in the fullness of yourself downloading whatever files, upgrades, information that needs to be integrated to your system.

In short. Meditate, meditate, meditate.

This is the most rebellious and radical approach to taming your ego and getting detached from your thinking, freeing you up to rise into your most grace filled self.

Spend a little time getting rebellious! Now and then over the coming Mondays I’ll offer up some different forms of meditation. Some practices you can experiment with and some people you can follow to jump start and guide you through until you find what works in your life.
