Flight of the Soul

Flight of the Soul

Support Change and Growth

posted by Melanie Lutz

With each breath

Invite those you meet to be better today than they were yesterday

Be grounded in your own magnificence

Radiating your inner light that is within us that is not of us.

Enrich each moment with care and work, making conscious choices. Free of the energies that keep you bound.  Allow nature to take its course in harmony without calling out the struggle, Effortlessly step into the full beauty of existence.

Move into the garden of your being remembering everything is as it is. You are exactly where you are supposed to be and you know absolutely how to tend to your needs.

Time to Shine

The flight of the soul is that moment when all that is worked for and disciplined toward and essential is lifted above the gravity and density of the earth’s pull in the contraction of birth rising into full elegance and grace.

 

The Measure of A Man

posted by Melanie Lutz
A measure of a man lives on in the hearts of those who are privileged to know him.
It’s one of my favorite days of the year. The day we honor all the beautiful men in our lives that bring all of themselves to each moment embracing the role of a lifetime….

I AM A GREAT MAN
My actions create a solid chain of unbroken kindness
My power lies in the heart of human kind
 
I own my responsibilities but I am not weighed down by responsibility
 
I am a great man
 
Dignity and resolve become my daily companions
I rise up to any challenge with integrity
I face what seems unfaceable
 
 
And begin again
 
I offer up all of my being
To the force of my family
 
I put the past behind me
It has become to heavy to carry
 
Temptation will not sway my steps
I will rise into the full glory of my warrior self
Far above
The undisciplined rabble
 
My remembrance of all great deeds will grow fuller with each breath
My action will be born out of the integrity of my being
 
I am a model of humility and courage
I am a model of patience and prosperity
I lead the way so others may follow
 
I trust the process of great leadership
Which knows the wellspring of connection of the whole
Flourishes in the spirit of the We.
 
I stand in the truth of my masculinity
Arriving with enlightenment
At my own door
In peace
And
Glory
 
I enjoy a battle of fierce determination to do that which is right minded
I stand in my personal integrity
And give of myself to the truth of myself
 
I am a great man
 
In all that means
In all power and strength
Leading and being
Strong
For my family
For my brothers
For my community
Telling the truth when it is necessary
Sparing those unforgiven suffering
 
Life awaits my swagger of victory
 
I am
 
Commander of the skies
Captain of the Seas
I know the truth of its blues
The sun shines in my being
 
I Love with a brave heart
Of compassion
That is all that is asked of me
 
I am a great man
 
I will hear the truth when it is spoken
I will not resist the next expression of my soul’s code
I will look over whatever wreckage has been wrought
And see the “deeper fields of possibility.”
 
I am a great man
 
I will speak with authority and strength
I will soften to the righteous way
I see my losses as opportunities
To reclaim my clarity of spirit
 
Let my knowing guide my aim
Let not my thoughts rule my actions
Let a deeper river instruct the truth.
 
The battle is not my concern
I abide in the honor of my deeper home
Raised up in full light
My heart has a steely knowledge of the open timelessness of being.
 
Where I am weak
Make me strong
Where I am
Talking cheap
Let me be free
Of my need to know
 
Le me
 
Be me
 
I am a great man
 

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Lots of Love,

 

Melanie

Claim the Miracle!

posted by Melanie Lutz

When going after something that to the present circumstance seems impossible like curing Alzheimer’s it often times requires a bold statement of intent.  As I was walking home through Beverly Hills, I saw this sign “This is Where it Will Happen” blockading off the sidewalk closure containing the construction of a new building harkening a new research and healing center for Cedars-Sanai Medical Center.

In taking a stand in the face of a currently incurable storm that a cure is possible creates a field of faith and expanded possibility. In this field of faith, the angels of our better nature can rise into the purest inspiration where dedication and discipline yield the eradication of disease by declaring this is it.

Construction is well underway and in 2013 Cedars-Sinai will open the doors bringing together the ultimate center for research and patient treatment.

“Approximately 1,900 patients, guests, and staff will enter the Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion each day, and all of them will pass through the George W. Schaeffer Lobby on the plaza level.  The 11-story, 440,000-square foot facility will offer convenient state-of-the-art outpatient care and will house Cedars-Sinai’s nationally renowned Heart Institute and neurosciences departments – all in one healing, eco-friendly building prominently located on the corner of San Vicente Boulevard and Gracie Allen Drive.”

Having a vision beyond what is presently possible and stretching into the future I commend the Cedars-Sinai Team for their fundraising efforts, construction crews, leadership in the health care field and every member of the planning committee and the staff that joined together to say yes, we will create a healing center that beacons through the doubts and fear to provide care and offer hope to all that are challenged by illness.

Many people will cross this threshold and in doing so they will bring with them unexpected and ever increasing healing results transcending the disconnection and isolation that follows a diagnosis.

If you are in a situation where you need support to strengthen your faith. Start by claiming the miracle. Know that whatever the outcome when you expand your thinking and open up to remembering that all things are possible and each action of faith brings with it an opening for those who will follow your statement of intent.

Give in this moment the fullness of your expression and say “Yes!” Each yes is rewarded.  This is where it will happen.  This is where an ancient wound will find healing in this present moment free of the past launching us into a new future where things worried about today have no bearing in our peace filled future where we decided to claim it.

Wishing you a most Wonderful Day!

Rise into Your Magnificence

posted by Melanie Lutz

A revolution takes place in the heart. It begins by hearing “Enough!” Enough of the thinking that led me astray. Enough of the actions that keep me in my pattern. Enough of the behavior that blocks me from accepting what is being offered in every moment. It begins by opening up and being willing to see a situation free from past vision transforming all of it into “I am enough to make any change I want to see.”

It is time to open up your heart to the revolution that wants to work through you.

 

Ready or Not

Walking through open doors has always been elusive for me. The door would be open and I’d say. “Hmmm. Not now.” “Not ready.” “Maybe you should go first.” “Is it to warm, I don’t have a suit.”

The door opens for a reason. For you to walk through.

There are millions of doors that open and close endlessly. If Fear keeps you stuck allow Love to carry you through.

When the moment comes. Move into your faith. Don’t look back.

If you need some further encouragement, picture Senor Cat’s displeasure and …. Step through that open door.

What Happens When We Grow Up

posted by Melanie Lutz

It is so strange to be mourning so many things as spring moves into summer. It isn’t just a time where the City of Los Angeles experienced the first fatal shooting of one of its bus drivers, Alan Thomas, we lost Barry Gibb and Donna Summer and have heard the story of the inhuman massacre in Syria. Through all this my friend’s four year old daughter starred in a production of Peter Pan, and if I have to be honest it is not one of my favorite musicals, however when sung by a group of adorable 4-5 year olds the events of these weeks brought a new perspective to “What Happens When You Grow Up?” about the boy who never wants to grow up. It made me think there are a lot of things we don’t want to happen in the world, that we wish we didn’t have to deal with but growing up requires an ability to stand in the face of these circumstances taking the action necessary to heal, while we accept that nothing can be done to change what happened.

We have all born witness to events that shake us to the roots of our existence. How we deal with these events and the effort of learning that ‘this too shall pass’ allowing the healing around the corner to unfold is the essence of picking a path and sticking to it, from witnessing the darkness and moving into the light, acknowledging that which is necessary for us to be free of that which weighs us down. We find our spots to process through what we need to release the energies that surround our being, we do this in many ways, scrapbooking, facebooking, video games, exercise, a great conversation with a dear friend, these moments of letting down are important to rise into the challenges and meet what comes with a sense of courage and confidence and fun and sun. Finding a way to process through the grief and the sheer unbelievability of loss, disaster and accidents that erupt in our lifetime is the way we find the joy in the present moment, connected to our core, feeling blessed and happy with what we have. This is the practice of humanity where we celebrate what we do have while mourning deeply what needs to be mourned.

As I was walking home this week after a meeting past the corner of La Cienega and Santa Monica Blvd. where a passenger with a shotgun entered bus line 105 and critically shot bus driver Alan Thomas I heard laughter before I saw the celebration of a small group of Bus Drivers about to board a couple of buses set up for one last memorial ride to celebrate the life that was lost in the line of duty. The sign on the bus said it all. 105 Not in Service. RIP Bus Driver Alan Thomas. Memorial Ride. We still don’t know why a man got on the bus with a shotgun and took your life but we remember you and honor everyone who works to serve the public.

How we respond to a tragedy, how we remember and hold this in our being makes all the difference and demonstrates the grace of life filled with ups and downs and losses and finding and creates the fullness of the glass. No matter how you look at it. People make mistakes, we forgive and move on. Each memory reclaimed and each piece put in service offering a moment of healing and remembrance. Compassion does not ask us to participate in judgement it merely asks us to be compassionate and forgive as we move through our healing process. It is what we remember when we take on the path of the true warrior in service of all that is. This is not the world that we were born into this is the world we inherited and create through our thoughts and actions and like any inheritance we work to become what we need to be for us and we unlearn that which we have acquired and we know our path is our path and all that we are shackled to when released is the way that we come into the truth of who we are.  What happens when we grow up is we remember to show up and do what we know needs to be done.

With Memorial Day behind us and summer ahead take this moment in your life to remember and embrace everyone who is in your neighborhood and bless this block you live on and extend that outward into the world in gratitude. The days ahead will involve much growth, much promise and an embracing of that elastic nature of the heart. The News Media may not cover the side of the stories that showcase the resilience of the human spirit in the light of unimaginable tragedy but that is the work of our grown up humanity to see the tragedy and know love and light lives in abundance and will come through. .

Don’t forget in one of us there is all of us. Be kinder than necessary, share the joy in celebrating each other and when it comes time to visit the darkness look but do not dwell and count your blessings (instead of sheep.)

Lots of Love,

Melanie

 

In dealing with loss, Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods comes to mind “Sometimes people leave you half way through the woods, others may deceive you, you decide what’s good. You decide alone but no one is alone.”

An ancient melody calls us

to the awareness of who we are

Infinite heart

Infinite love

Infinite peace

Fierce compassion

Ultimate power

 I am a Magnificent Woman

I reclaim the energy of creation

I open up to new possibilities

I am an active and purposeful participant

I own my gifts

And use them

I call on the teachers of the past

I call on the hearts and spirits of those women who were burned for their beliefs

Those women willing to lose their life in service of the truth

I call on our sisters and mothers and grandmothers and our daughters

I call on the birth right of the feminine

I will

Give birth

To what wants to be born

I am a Magnificent Woman.

I will own what I know

I will be who I am

I will remember the truth

I will call on those around me

To join together

In celebration

I will quite simply — grow up.

Answering the call of my being

To wake up

The healing and nourishing spirit

Of my birthright

Waiting for a Miracle

posted by Melanie Lutz

All over the globe right now people are waiting for a miracle. They are in need and they are looking for an answer to their prayers.

“seek not outside of yourself
Heaven can not be found  outside yourself.
Seek not outside insisting it is possible to find what you crave.
Seek no longer elsewhere to what resides within.”
 

May every miracle asked for be granted. May every circumstance that needs shifting, shift and may all our needs in every situation be met.

Patience and prayer is the way we make manifest everyday miracles delivering us through any circumstance.

Make the connection with the source of all that is, opening your heart into that space allowing what works through you to do what it does best.

With so much light and love.
