No Judgment. No Name Calling.

In Spirit by Melani Marx

What are you really hungry for? This is the question I was asked a week or so ago by someone I admire, love and trust. As I allowed that question to settle in and find its way to the deepest truth I held in my being in that moment, I felt all kinds of squirmy, uncomfortable and exciting feelings coming …

On Resistance and Flow

In Soul by Melani Marx

I was feeling so dang proud of myself! In the midst of packing up my personal, creative and business life for my annual five week stay in the San Juan Islands, AND doing all the usual stuff – working with clients, laundry, eating well, answering email and keeping my groove on – Monday morning I stopped and spent several hours …

Trust the Unfolding…

In Spirit by Melani Marx

“We know that there is much that is changing – inside and out.  Much that is being asked of you in stepping more fully into the Truth of who you are. The bigger version and expanded knowing that is available to each of you. Pause for moment and listen for that. Let your awareness reach out and connect to the …

Mercy

In Soul by Melani Marx

Start where you are.   Do it now. Not in ten feet or twenty. Now. This very moment.   Call yourself back to yourself. Listen to your tender parts. Hear what they have to tell you. The treasure and riches they have to share.   Do not turn away from your own nakedness. Be a rock, a tree, a loving …

I Used to Believe…

In Soul by Melani Marx

I used to believe that I was unlovable. I was unimportant and that what I did didn’t matter much. That at the most basic level I was flawed and wrong. Ugly. Untalented. Stupid. I believed I was too big, too loud and just plain – too much. I believed I needed to figure out how to be loveable, worthy, smart. Enough. …

Practice Possibility

In Courage by Melani Marx

Practice Possibility. Use its name. Call it in…           When you feel uncertain or nervous.           When you feel up against a wall.           When you feel tired and overwhelmed.           When you feel contracted or worried about the future.           When you …

No Part of You Left Behind

In Soul by Melani Marx

Be yourself. Open and receive all that you are – the darkness and the shame – the beautiful and the bright. They are equally precious and holy. Love starts with you. You cannot love another to any greater degree than you love and accept yourself. Neither can you truly receive love to any greater degree than how much you love …

Have Faith

In Soul by Melani Marx

“Right now things are moving very fast. What took years – decades – even multiple lifetimes to shift is now happening in the blink of an eye so-to-speak. This is such a fertile time and it can leave you a bit out of sorts, even beside yourself as so much shifts so rapidly inside – and out. It is so important …

You. Matter.

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 …

The Discomfort of Staying Where You Are

In Courage by Melani Marx

I had no idea what to expect. I did not know a single person there. I’d never ever been there before. Yep! Exhilaration and terror hand in hand – that leap into the unknown. This past week I once again crossed the threshold into the unknown. Something that I mostly love to do. Something I find both exhilarating and terrifying …
