Flight of the Soul

Flight of the Soul

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.

Here’s some links to check out–

Marrying My Mind, Body, Spirit

posted by Melanie Lutz

It is time to celebrate all that I am.

To be followed by a distinguished celebration including champagne and hot tub soaking, fire in the fireplace and a piano playing candlelight evening of awesomeness honoring whatever calls to my soul, integrating all of me.

Glowing in the possibility of perfect love. I take today the anniversary of my wedding date from the vantage point of my divorce and release whatever is not light filled.

I share in peace of mind, body and spirit and consummate all joy now and forever.

What is written in my heart now changes my mind in full presence of my soul and spirit joining in openness and love.

Today is the day where I remember I am complete, healed and whole. I am in full possession of everything that is offered in the kingdom of god.

Wherever you are – I wish you more love, joy and happiness.

Always Love.

Melanie

“When they finish the meal the more bewilderment the better” flows from the mind of the master as he reviews the laboratory of concoctions making there way into being. It all represents priceless insights into what it takes to become the world’s best in the full blaze of inspiration utilizing a singular vision and the majesty of confidence. I love the beauty of the expression through food. It is quite simply art.

The Spanish Mr. Adrià referred to as “the leading inspiration for avant-garde cuisine worldwide, alternately referred to as a mad scientist or Salvador Dali of the kitchen” is a delight of intensity as he works at what New York Times called “the most influential restaurant in the world” two hours northeast of Barcelona in a town called Roses, Spain all captured with precision and grace by Gereon Wetzel

When God Speaks. I Listen.

posted by Melanie Lutz

I don’t know a lot about why things happen. I do know it all has a divine order for each of us. Destiny unfolds one step at a time. When I walked out of my marriage and went into a Gypsy Summer that has now lasted four years I learned to stop questioning any of it and got into a practice of being open and in the flow of everything, in the moment to moment grace and possibility of life unfolding in its most magnificent way.

If I have to be honest I wasn’t quite sure why Flight of the Soul emerged at this point in the process of my life. I had a moment where I decided to reach out to Beliefnet and see about blogging for them. The response was an immediate “Yes” and the beautiful process of letting God design the expression began. I had an idea for a title that just didn’t seem right to the inspiration editor Jennifer Jones and she suggested I think about some other ones. Being the mildly efficient overachiever I am I gave her a bunch of titles and at the last minute threw in Flight of the Soul that had emerged in my consciousness from a beautiful loving relationship that cracked my soul free from where it had been hiding. Without too much delay Flight of the Soul became the selection and here I am.

As I was sitting with my first writings and thinking about how to organize everything and move forward on this blog. I got an email that my dear friend’s father had died.

My friend’s sadness of her loss had the effect of multiplying everything within my own system of grief and compassion that needed clearing. All the losses over the past years that had been left unaddressed tapping me into releasing the universal grief and stress in a flood of tears. Whatever torrent that had built up and taken place in my life that had been unaddressed naturally found its release and flow as I witnessed another cycle of life come to an end – all in service of what wants to be born.

If I was asking for a sign as to what Flight of the Soul should be. I got it.


Never the spirit was born; the spirit shall cease to be never;
Never was time it was not; End and Beginning are dreams!
Birthless and deathless and changeless remaineth the spirit for ever;
Death hath not touched it at all, dead though the house of it seems!
– Bhagavad-Gita Or Song Celestial

Grief is a part of life and I can honor it and see the beauty of it as part of the soul’s expression. I can love and extend comfort and solace for the family and their tremendous loss, I can join them with compassion.

Thanks to Pete Rugolo Flight of the Soul has found its musical director and will evolve into a place to share more personal stories that touch my heart, to open up to being home and to answer God when he calls. In the days ahead we’ll open up to the way to healing. I am grateful to Beliefnet for their work in being a place to express the faith of a lifetime and this moment with inspiration and love.

Riposi in pace Pete Rugolo beloved father, beautiful soul and Emmy-Winning Composer who lived to 95. Blessed thanks for so much beautiful work and love and life and creativity that flowed from everything you did. I am with his family and friends and colleagues in honoring the man and his legacy as he now rests in the arms and hearts of all the love and angels in his new musical home that will be that much richer for his arrival and expression.

A Revolution Takes Place in the Heart

posted by Melanie Lutz

It mattered not if others understood
The deepening of his experience grew
To the point he knew
The ache was not meant to go away
It was a part of his essence

It was the ache of the mature open heart
Living with the hurts of the instant
Working beyond the threshold of gravity
Allowing the natural expression of love to flow through him
Fully at play
Free from any confinement

Stretching across time and space
So Far Away
His beloved felt all of it
Sitting on the shore of the lake
On which they had spent so much time together

She spoke into his dearest heart
The part he had gifted her
Even though she said “No” to his offer to join him

“What I am living
Here is very tough
for my soul… nothing nice to share and too much
negativity… so,
I don’t think about it. I don’t think about it. I don’t think about it…
but I have to accept
this part of me too.
This part of me that doesn’t think it deserves a life of its own
That doesn’t deserve anything
So, here I am”

Like the kiss of an Angel
The flutter of gallant beautiful wings bursting into air
The King Fisher emerging triumphantly
Rippling free from the Lake’s surface stillness
Shaking off the water from its latest dive
Breaking into a new day

Feeling the rush of air of her beloved warming her
She watched the King Fisher soar away into the blues

She knew
She had chosen without care for her own heart
No more
She was choosing again

“Your love is lifting me up, it is flowing into my wings…
caressing a little my feathers ..
I can feel the wind…and I start to fly

Every material density with a specific weight over the air cannot reach me…
It is so beautiful this experience to be a flying bird looking at the
Density of the world from my belly
..Such a fresh air l can breathe from here… l am keeping compact my
Feathers..  the hair is playing
With the wind.  so light experience.”

Freedom
Offered

Tonight
Would be her last
In this place that was not her home

Love was beckoning
Calling her through the fire of her being

The shell of her existence cracking
With a fierceness of resolve
Expanding now without reserve

She asked
As she started her journey
To her beloved
Strengthen my wings
Bring me light
For my flight

 

A revolution takes place in the heart. It begins by saying enough. Enough of the behavior that keeps me stuck on the shore. There are so many ways that we hold ourselves back from the truest expression of love and joy flowing into and through our lives. Ask yourself to what end and release your soul to flourish and thrive. It is the most you can do for those you love and the planet as a whole.

Lots of Love,

Melanie

A PRAYER FOR HARMONY

posted by Melanie Lutz

I gladly give up my fear
I move into eternal joy

I stand in the truth
Balanced and at peace
Returned to awareness and full

I celebrate my life
I live in its ever radiating glow

I let my heart rise and flow
expanding with each breath

Let only Joy be my name
Let only Love remain

Restore my blissful self
to its rightful seat

Inviting my heart space
to unlock the treasure chest of recognition
Prospering in all ways and means
Revealing what is already mine

In service to my magnificence
Striking a tune the likes of which is only played by my soul
The humm of which cascades ever forward
Gently with force
Exploding
The crucible of my being
Now crucified and crushed
Free
In Harmony

 

May it be so.
