Give birth to the expression of your authentic self today.
Take a deep breath, fill your lungs with possibility.
Use the void between each breath to expand the truth of your unique journey, divinely guided in the most perfect fashion, surrounded by support for all the tears and laughter, expanding friendships, and connections that will feed your soul. Ignite your ancestral heritage, that vibration of eternal existence, with full nourishment providing all the new creation energy necessary for your growth.
Repeat 3 times.
Embrace, embody and expand your heart into your space, community, the world and stars. You are ready.
On this day, from the heart of Los Angeles, the City of Angels, I offer a tiny prayer from my collection of inspired loving affirmations I am a Magnificent Woman that was gifted to me from my own tears of grief and despair. It was the answer to the question that I had walked and lived after leaving my marriage not knowing which end was up. It was the answer to 'Who am I?' And a most beautiful universal gift, because once I remembered who I was, I could re-member who everyone is.
I AM A MAGNIFICENT WOMAN
An ancient melody calls us
to the awareness of who we are
I am a Magnificent Woman
I will not fall asleep in the hour of our greatest need
I will not fall asleep because it is too painful to bare witness
I will not fall asleep because I don’t think I can handle it
I will not fall asleep because it is all too much
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 am a Magnificent Woman
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 Mary’s and Barbara’s and Sally’s
I call on the birth right of the feminine
I call on all the angels awaiting our cry
I call on everything now and forever
To what wants to be born
I am a Magnificent Woman

When the way seems impossible. When the journey ahead requires every ounce of faith, remember what lies within you is wholly free and lives in perfect peace. You can do what you thought could not be done with love in your heart and justice speaking its truth.
Inspiration lies ever present in the heart...waiting for the well spring of Release. That energy of love's purest grace is made manifest through our soul's code working in concert with our nature. How we cultivate this powerful force of our being relates the ease at which we move through the world lending our imprints of love. Cultivating inspiration is a practice like anything else. Acting on the inner inspiration where the miracles happen.
Onward we march into the truth that never changes. Without ceasing.
As you extend Love you will realize that you did not make Love and that you are more than what you have made. You will be a happy learner of the lesson Love brings because It teaches you release from nothing and all the works of nothing. The heavy illusions that you project from a personal mind and that seem to bind you to despair you do not see are nothing until you extend Love in their place. And then you see your illusions have disappeared and so they must have been nothing. Because you teach Happiness and Freedom you will see Happiness and Freedom reflected back to you. -ACIM
After all of it, after the journey is complete and the surrender has unfolded and the tears arefalling and it feels like they might never end, this passage from The Holy Bible: King James Version. 2000 The Revelation of St. John the Divine lights the way for me.
sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Ome'ga, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither
Love leads the way, the detox in the form of our tears is necessary and when it is written 'I shall wipe away all tears.' It means exactly that. ALL tears are felt and heard and held. This can be your comfort in the wake of whatever befalls your circumstance. Faith is vision beyond what the eyes can see. Take the soft focus of love and step into and through the fires of comfortability into the deeply refreshing air of the truth.
There has been a lot going on this year, many ups and downs, many losses and tragedies, much to celebrate and so much love.
May healing and light and joy flow in the days ahead allowing inspiration to rise from the depth of our heart and our tears as our friends leading the way to the inspiration of our soul.

The journey of Love continues.
It is hard to know what will resonate for you and I don’t have to. I do know you have all the answers to your questions and wonderings and worrying. Hope you are enjoying following along with me in this #Next100 practice of getting very real about what love is and exercising a practice of loving thought.
I can’t say that every day has been super profound or that I found the perfect loving thought for each day, what I can say is. In the effort is the reward and in the reward there is a new space of being.
The rite of passage these 100 days represents is important as understanding how to add 2 plus 2 to get 4 to move to 4 x 12 equals 48, to algebra and beyond.
Whether you base your worldview on mathematics, science, religion, god, vibrations, energies, etc. everything in the universe is a harmony at play and in tune with cycles endlessly flowing.
“Show up for Love.
Nothing more is required.”
Love is all around. Love is in the room. Love is in my heart. Love is within.
It is okay for Love to seep into our body and mind and spirits. It is okay to let it transform our fear. It is all okay to surround your intentions with love and release anything that is unwanted, not of the light and hanging around as a downer dragging my spirit into the ethers.
This is the moment when the winds of the angels delivers the message into the warmth of the soul revealing wisdom, the soul sound of its loving ecstatic code.
For me, this statement, serves as an affirmation into loving yourself.
All I can do I have done. Where I have held myself back thinking there is something wrong with me in these 100 days I now release. Whatever patterns I have showcased in the past. I release. Whatever comes up that has blocked a natural flow in moving forward with beautiful expressions and collaborations I release. I release everything mentioned and unmentioned into the vientos de los angeles.
Any energies that have been directed in explaining what is a problem. I now direct those energies to move into and nourish the expansion of creativity and love and co-creating all that is beautiful for a loving and fantastically peace-filled future. My minions and my men at work set in action with Love.
Moving on there will be another week, another tomorrow and another breath. There will be another moment and there will be love. Thank God I know only love is real and demonstrate that truth with all the days of my life.
These days ahead will be a reminder all is loving, that endings are beginnings and fears and tears are our friends and these voices in my head can be helpful and are not here to hurt me.
Thanks for your patience and practice and love.
May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace.
Today. Now. Always.
With Infinite Love and Gratitude

Being precedes the doing. So today is the day to BE. To BE Love. To BE you. In touch with the present. To love well. To be well.
My dear friend's support group for Mother's of Down Syndrome children shared some the best advice they would give Mother's making a decision to carry their down's marker babies to term --
"Normal is a cycle on the washing machine."
Heck YEAH! Normality is a function of whoever is the perceiver and has no bearing on the truth.
Who's to know anything? Each life touches so many others in so many ways what you think is your greatest challenge can be your greatest blessing.
Who’s to say.
Let's take today to own all of it.
Be you. All of you.
Own what you know.
Know where you stand.
Share the message when you can.
In the light of remembering to be all of you.
You might need a little reminder that you don't do it alone.
Enjoy these words sung by Whitney Houston and CeCe Winans Count on Me ...
what a song, such a great message that resonates...
With Infinite Love and Gratitude
Today is DAY 67 of MEL’S LOVE LAND #NEXT100 BE YOU
Take Mel’s Love Land Pledge!!
(Repeat after Me)
For the #Next100 Days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way….
(add whatever ‘feels right’ allow it to be your reality even if it is just for one moment, revel in the idea that there is another way to look at it and allow yourself the privilege of true sight beyond your perceptions because whatever follows ‘I will consider the possibility there is another way’ will be the direction that you set – make it count)
