HARVEST THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOR
The roots of Halloween are fascinating in that they come from the ancient Gaelic festival known as Samhain, translated as “summer’s end, which is super cool, but, the even cooler fact, Halloween represents the switchover from the “lighter half” of the year, to 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.

As Halloween blows through this weekend, as the traditions rage, as we switch from light and move into the dark, 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 darkness of your truest self.

Mark Halloween 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 you feel connected, comforted and full of peace
Today. Now. Always.
May the care and discipline in which you live your life 
blossom
fully.

lots of love,

Create a New Story

MAKE IT MARVELOUS

As we transition from the lighter half of the year into the darker. As we fall in love, maybe for the first time, maybe for the millionth time. As weddings are celebrated and holidays are planned for, as the planet crunch we are all experiencing reaches a boiling point. It’s Time.

Let any story that no longer serves the deeper peaceful-ness of your being fall away. Step into the next possibility of the greatest expression of your wholeness. Turn all the absolute shining brilliance of possibility into full on probability. Let go of your anxiousness, let go of your judgment, let go of your tired, heavy, boring, story. Stop the “yeah, but” and just say YES to that beautiful story of the fullest expression of joy.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace
Today. Now. Always.
May Love land in the deepest spaces of your truest self
and may the lightest touch of peace awaken all to your call.

lots of love,

Melanie

>There is Nothing to Prove

We all have our demons to work through. We all have the inner spinner that brings the same story around and around.

“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.”

Give it a whirl… 

The sun’s in my heart and I’m ready for love.

Gene Kelly wasn’t just Singing in the Rain. He was singing AND dancing in the rain. 

laugh at clouds
So dark up above
keep the sun in your heart
And get ready
 

Step up your practice. Move through any resistance and don’t forget to dance out the other side refreshed, revived and aglow. 

In Love.

carrying you through whatever might appear to darken you door.

lots of love,

“To practice means to perform, in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.”

Make your life a practice of living in the loving instant because when love is present fear is not possible.

>Accentuate the Positive

We make our world out of seeing what we want to see.
The parable of The Town Up Ahead illustrates my point.

A woman pulls up to the Gate Keeper and asks, “What are the people like in the next town up ahead?” The Gate Keeper said, “What were the people like in the town you just came from?” 
“Awful people,” the woman responded. “Rude, cold, hostile, abrupt, unfriendly.” 
“Well,” said the Gate Keeper, “I’m sorry to say it, but you’re going to find exactly the same sort of people in the next town up ahead.” 
A bit later, a Man pulls up, heading in the same direction as the first. “What are the people like in the next town up ahead?” 
The Gate Keeper said, “What were the people like in the town you just came from?”
“Wonderful people,” the man responded. “Friendly, warm, helpful, patient, kind.” 
“Well,” said the Gate Keeper, “I’m happy to tell you that you’re going to find exactly the same kind of people in the next town up ahead.”

Der Bingle with Bette Midler…

Who would you consider to be the best leader using the following profile of three world leaders who lived in the same period of history?

Candidate A was associated with witchdoctors and often consulted astrologists. He had two mistresses. His wife was a Lesbian. He smoked a lot. He drank eight to ten martinis a day.

Candidate B never managed to hold down a job because of his arrogance. He slept the whole morning. He used opium at school, and was always considered a bad student. He drank a glass of brandy every morning.

Candidate C was decorated a hero. A vegetarian, he did not smoke. His discipline was exemplary. He occasionally drank a beer. He stayed with the same woman during his moments of glory and defeat.

A] Franklin Delano Roosevelt. B] Winston Churchill. C] Adolf Hitler. pulled from Paulo Coehelo’s blog —
Food for thought as things begin to shift and you are making connections.

For me Johnny Mercer’s lyrics to Harold Arlen’s music for the song Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive is luscious and as always with these standards totally profound published in 1944 capturing the mood of a world looking toward the end of the second World War…

You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium’s
Liable to walk upon the scene
 

In filtering life in love accentuating the positive everything shifts… giving you the gift of the truth which never changes.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace
Today. Now. Always.
May you see life in its full beauty
unencumbered by the weight of judgment
May you let go of your defenses
allowing the true nature of peace to enter your heart.

In Grace and appreciation,

>Have a Miracle

In Uncategorized on October 23, 2010 at 8:27 am

>”Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.”

Today is an easy one. Let love flow establishing a frequency to surrender removing any blocks to the awareness of love’s fullest presence.

Let what naturally wants to be expressed have its day in the sun. 

” It’s just another ordinary miracle today”

and ready
for a miracle.

RISE INTO YOUR MAGNIFICENCE
TODAY. NOW. ALWAYS.

A revolution takes place in the heart. It begins by hearing “Enough!” Enough of the thinking that lead me astray. Enough of the actions that keep me locked in any pattern that is not serving me. 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.”
