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 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.

Comfort Those in Need

posted by Melanie Lutz

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 every effort that unfolds 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.

These symbols that live and breathe around us provide a platform of remembrance within the tenant of our days to wake up to our “heart full of grace” and enact it with those we encounter attending to them as we would to our own needs. We are not in any of this alone and must be vigilant to operating in a full practice of doing the right thing because we know in our hearts it is what is necessary, it is what is just, it is what is correct in a given situation and not because we have been told, policed, regulated or bullied.

As Maya Angelou wrote “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”

It is all of our job to sing our song with love and to provide an example of the purest grace of our being in giving birth in each moment to what wants to be born in ourselves and those we encounter.

This is the clearest example I could relate of what Flight of the Soul will be offering in the days and weeks to come. A little bit of love. A little bit of faith and a whole lot of inspiration.

We are all being called to action, to comfort those in need, to smile for no reason and to love beyond our current capability. Happily we have more than enough teachers, wisdom and beauty to carry us through.

Thank you in advance for your time and attention and energies in contributing to the spirit of our collective connection.

Wishing you a wonderful new day full of so much love and joy!

Let Your Truth Blossom

posted by Melanie Lutz

The soul knows where it belongs. Not some of the time. All of the time. When you strip everything away and get bare this fact sings.

It doesn’t matter what path you choose, what form the exploration, just that you remove any blocks and keep yourself open. Your life to date, the pain and wounds, joy, laughter and Love, ALL the Love… You can use as a road map of how to find your way back to the space that knows. That lives in eternal joy and peace. That flourishes in a warm embrace.

Like Dorothy at the end of The Wizard of Oz when she says “Why didn’t you tell me all I needed to do was click my heals three times to go home?” to which the Good Witch responds “You never would have believed me.” I remember thinking as a kid, “Mother F-er … Would have been good to know.”

How much easier would life be if we skipped the drama (and those harried flying rabid attack monkeys?)

Choose to see things differently and take any light bulb moment of truth to change the story you’ve created. To get help. To share yourself. To move from fear to love, from insecure to joyful, from ill will to well wishes. You can choose in this moment to open yourself up to the possibility of being happier today than you were yesterday, to be the change necessary so you are delivered from whatever your current circumstance into peace and Love. Simply by choosing to be awake.

Believe it. Have faith in the beautiful process of nature and the seasons in our lives.

Today. Right now. I’m giving you a free pass. A pass to forgive yourself and anyone you have been carrying a hate on for. As you read this — allow forgiveness to be understood and accepted and make the “journey (without distance) from your head to your heart.” Notice I’m saying without distance, not without resistance. I get that upsets will come, people will trigger you. Don’t let it take you down to Chinatown around and around the yellow brick road. No matter what comes your way, in keeping your heart open you will always have access to your center, just as Dorothy did, you can click your heals three times, take a breath and go directly home.

Release the past. The future has no business today and be willing to have the truth, your truth Lovingly blossom.
