Tsunamis, Seismic Events and Loosing Everything

In Celebration, Courage, Soul by Melani Marx

A little over two years ago one of the most catalytic events of my life took place. It sent everything I had believed and taught into question. This was a seismic event that rocked every single area of my life – the ripple effects of which are still echoing. A few months before this event I was at a crossroads. I …

This Looks Messy

In Soul by Melani Marx

This morning I woke feeling out of sorts. Disconnected. Everything inside felt as though it was fluid. Moving. My sense of self, of who and what I am, what the world is – none of this felt certain. There was no sense of solid ground. NO comfort. My first impulse was to check the “News.” To see what was going …

I Stand — Undivided

In Courage, Soul by Melani Marx

I have recorded an audio track of this post. If you’d like – Listen here. *** I am still the radiant light that I Am. I will burn even more brightly. More fiercely. More powerfully than ever before. I will tend this inner light. Sing to it. Be mindful of it. Stoke it. With beauty. With love. With patience. With silence. With paint …

I REALLY want you to know this…

In Soul by Melani Marx

Here is what I want you to know today… I want you to know that you matter. That you make a difference simply by your presence here on the planet. That sometimes life is excruciatingly hard… and still it is soooo worth it. That everything changes – the good and the awful. That simple IS better. That curiosity and wonder …

Finding Firmer Ground

In Soul by Melani Marx

It’s been a tremendous week or two of shift and shuffle here on planet Earth. Clients and friends speak to me of being in an in-between-place. Familiar things are dropping away. New and exciting doors opening. Information previously not in conscious awareness is coming into the Light – some of it welcome and some of it not so much. Some have shared feelings of emptiness – of being hollowed out as these tides adjust. Many have …

Underneath the Crazy

In Soul by Melani Marx

Storms are meant to wake us up. Thunder and lightening to catch our attention. Big storms shift the landscape. Uprooting what was and making way for what is yet to be. So too,  villains are here to wake us up. To give us something to push against. To help us see more clearly what we will no longer stand for or …

Your Soul Knows

In Soul by Melani Marx

Your Soul knows the way. I keep hearing these words as I move through my day. I walk the creek in the morning. The late summery dry dust beneath my feet puffing quietly with every step. The sharp scent of water on parched earth and hot dry stone. Cedar heady and sweet underneath that. Faint. Soft sunlight coming through the …

You Are Not to Blame

In Soul by Melani Marx

Oh, honey – it’s not your fault. I said this to my client as she told me that in her deepest most secret places she believed that the current flair up of chronic long-term medical issues she was experiencing was because she was doing something wrong. That it was her fault that she was not completely healed. Fury bloomed in …

Invoking Your Own Transformative Powers

In Soul by Melani Marx

I was sitting in a stew of confusion. The swirl of pros and cons, conflicting desires, jumbled priorities – reaching for the right words to share with others – all of this was creating struggle as I worked on a project near and dear to my heart and Soul – The Autumn turning of One Season. My body and mind …

She SO did not just DO that!

In Soul by Melani Marx

I was a bit out of my body. Town was crowded. Delighted to find a very tiny parking spot that was close to the post office, I began to maneuver my way into it. There wasn’t a lot of room. A yellow “no parking” line was my rear boundary, so I parked my front bumper waaaay closer to the blue …
