The ten bazillion, jillion questions…

In Soul, Spirit by Melani Marx

I’m curious… Why do so many of us humans wear knowing-ness like a shield? How come we often choose a stance of already knowing? What makes us so anxious to claim we know – when we really don’t? Are we afraid that we will appear foolish? Unschooled? Be called out? Where did the curiosity, wonder and innocence of the our young child self go? What happened to the ten bazillion, jillion questions that as …

A fervent conversation with God – At a Crossroad

In Soul, Spirit by Melani Marx

At a powerful crossroad On the outside my life looked wonderful. Successful. Together. Abundant. On the inside the careful life I had created was unraveling. My family was in turmoil. My children and I struggling. I felt isolated. Alone. Fearful. Imprisoned. None of these feelings were even remote strangers to me.

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.

In order to have what you want you must to be willing to grow beyond who you are in this moment.

Holy Longing

In Soul, Spirit by Melani Marx

You think what you do must be brilliant. Ordinary is just fine. Every-day is good. There is nothing to strive for. No “where” to arrive to. This moment is everything. Let yourself sink into the depths of your being – the Love that you are. Let quiet Mercy enfold you. Let yourself rest in that today, dear one. Allow tears …

Not Your Job

In Soul, Spirit by Melani Marx

Let go of trying to order the world. It quite simply is not your job. Your job is to come into alignment with this moment, with the gifts and wisdom available here. When you feel yourself bolt in panic or concern for what is ahead and your or a loved one’s ability to traverse it – call yourself back. Keep your …

In the Spirit of Celebration

In Celebration, Spirit by Melani Marx

What if today you simply celebrate all that you are. All that you have. All that you see? What if this year you choose to begin with an epic and utter sense of starting fresh? What if you leave behind any feelings, stories or beliefs that create a sense or feeling inside your precious being of “less-than” or “not enough” …
