Loving You…


Take a Moment to Breathe and Exhale Deeply Six Times. 
In Love. Out Love.   In Love. Out Love.   In Love. Out Love.
In Love. Out Love.   In Love. Out Love.   In Love. Out Love.

It’s about Loving Every Day, looking for a better way to share the joy of living with an open heart and giving…

Acknowledge special people. Let them know that you care.  Spread the mystery of goodness. Reaffirm that you are there.

 I Love You….

Some may say "It’s so easy to say but so hard to do".  Love is by example…The Gift Is Within YOU!
It’s about Loving every day, looking for a better way to share the joy of living with an open heart and giving…
Each of us is on a journey, our own personal trek.  Know that the G-d within Loves YOU, supports your dreams; helps you through the tough times; helps you say what you really mean!

Walk in the Day bringing brilliant Sunlight.   Be a Star, twinkling, glowing and embracing the Night.

I Love You…. I Love You…. I Love You….
Some may say "It’s so easy to say but so hard to do!"

The Truth Is...Love Is by Example…

The Gift of Love Is Within YOU! 

Always, Melony 

Peace Is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Forgiveness, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Understanding and the Gift of Love!

Walk In Truth Anyway! ‪#‎Destiny

Walk In Truth Anyway!  ‪#‎Destiny


People may ignore you because of where you come from, your social status, your religious beliefs or your race.  Even your birth family may choose to close their hearts to you when you have been baptized in Love. Walk In Truth Anyway. 

Still yourself and open your heart.   Breathe and Exhale Deeply, Many Times.

Let go of all the places in your heart where you have been hurt or disappointed, and where you have hurt or disappointed yourself, or others. 

Offer Forgiveness to All, including yourself.  Let Rainbows of Compassion and Humility  begin to cleanse your soul.

Keep Breathing Deeply. Embrace the cloak of Courage and Integrity.  

Every wound gives temporary pain but also is a lesson in acquiring Strength in times of adversity. 

The fractured or broken bones, your muscles, your brain and your tender heart are always healing through your genuine ability to see the joy in overcoming whatever challenges we face.  This is Life.

Your Destiny lies beyond the disappointments or failures.  Your Destiny  will not be marred by jealous thoughts or petty actions.

 Your Destiny Resides In the Heart of Love.  This Is Truth.

Truth is the only way to live as a Being of Love.  Knowing, speaking and being the Truth is how we live Our Purpose. 

 No matter the obstacles, Everyone has a Purpose and a Contribution to make on this planet. It is something that only You can do, or say or write in the fabric of time.

Today Breathe and Exhale Deeply Ten Times.

Inhale Courage, Integrity and Good Purpose.  Exhale Love and Forgiveness. 
Inhale Courage, Integrity and Good Purpose.  Exhale Love and Forgiveness. 
Inhale Courage, Integrity and Good Purpose.  Exhale Love and Forgiveness. 
Inhale Courage, Integrity and Good Purpose.  Exhale Love and Forgiveness..... 

Even when you  have taken wrong turn, think you are lost or it seems like all the familiar doors have closed...  Please Don't Give Up.   Never Give Up!  

Continue to walk with Hope, Humility and Compassion. 

You Have Been Baptized In the Waters of Love....

Grace Is  the Voice Calling.... Yes, Grace Is the Voice Calling....

"Love Is the Answer. Your Destiny Is Great. Walk in Truth Anyway!"

As Jesus Would Say....I am ONE. We Are ONE!

As Jesus Would Say....I am ONE. We Are ONE!


I Breathe and Exhale Deeply Ten Times. Today Joy moves through me as I learn Compassion and Humility.   As Jesus Would Say....I am ONE. We Are ONE!

I am ONE  with all sentient beings…the sky, the clouds, the sun, the rain, the trees that sway and dance in the wind, and the birds that greet me in song.

I am One  with the Spirit of Sophia, Mother Theresa, Mohandis, Malcolm, Martin, John, and Edward, as well as  Ruth, Isaac, Joshua, Moses, Mary, Jesus, Khadeeja, Mohammed, Shams, Rumi, Buddha, Kuan Yin and  Sojourner Truth.

I am ONE with the woman suffering from breast cancer and  the man suffering and dying from lung cancer and the woman in Afghanistan whose  family was killed by a drone.

I am ONE with the with the lost souls of ISIS, Boko Haram and hostages and victims everywhere, as well as the homeless woman pushing  the cart with all her worldly possessions and warning us of our greed though we  don’t often listen.

I am One with the Tibetan who was told by Chairman Mao that religion is poison and every Tibetan across the Earth unable to return to their homeland.

I am One with the starving children everywhere, as well as  the  Israeli or Palestinian with a gun in his or her hand.

I am One with all those Ascended, every child born at  this moment, and the great-grandparents who are taking their last breath on this Earth Realm.

I am ONE with the artist struggling to show us the  way and the politician disgraced in shame.

I am ONE with those who  have Awakened in Love and those filled with disappointment or fear.

Circumstances make no difference to me for I embrace the  journey and see the Divine in those who may not see the Divine in  themselves.

I am One with All World Leaders who need more Courage to say  stop the killing everywhere and the Dalai Lama whom asks us to live in Peace.

In my dreams the Buffalo Woman, the Morning Dove and the  Golden Hawk guide me as my heart becomes filled with Ancient Prayers of  All Traditions.

I am One with the caterpillar and the butterfly. 

As Jesus Would Say....I am ONE. We Are ONE!

I am  One with the Buddhist, the Christian, the Jew, the Moslem, the Bahai, the  Hindu, the Yoruba, the Janist, the Naturalist, the One who doesn’t believe in G-d, and the One Lost in their material identity and always needing  more….

Today Joy moves through me as Compassion, Humility and  Understanding Become a Way of Life...

For In You--- I see the Reflection of  Me and know that through Love... WE ARE ONE.

Peace is Possible through Compassion, Forgiveness, Integrity, Mercy, Respect, Understanding
and--- The Grace of Love!

Always, Melony

Prayers for Brussels and People Everywhere!

Please Join Me and the Many Across Earth/Heart Offering Prayers of Compassion and Love for Brussels, and People Suffering Everywhere!

Today, I took my belabored heart to the Tree of Wisdom and cried for the children of every conversation and act of terrorism where Greed and Destruction took center stage with Hate, and tried to pillage even the Universal Heart of Love.
Much was destroyed and many were harmed needlessly.
Wisdom they say, always speaks through the Heart. We must have the Courage to see, speak and act with Wisdom and Love.
The ability to create a Safe World for All Children of All Cultures and Faith or ReligiousTraditions  Is Possible Only By Allowing Love to Lead.
Breathe and Exhale Deeply Ten Times.  Let the out breath be slow and healing as you release fear and decide to share Courage, Love and Wisdom.
In Love with Wisdom.  Out Fear with Courage and Love with Wisdom.  In Love with Wisdom.  Out Fear with Courage and Love with Wisdom.    In Love with Wisdom.  Out Fear with Courage and Love with Wisdom.  In Love with Wisdom.  Out Fear with Courage and Love with Wisdom.  In Love with Wisdom.  Out Fear with Courage and Love with Wisdom.  In Love with Wisdom.  Out Fear with Courage and Love with Wisdom......
Prayers for the People of Brussels and People Suffering Everywhere!  Peace Is Possible Through Compassion, Forgiveness, Hope, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Patience and the Grace of Love!
Today In Our Hearts, Words, Deeds and Actions....
Let Love Lead!  Let Love Lead!   With Courage and Wisdom, Let Love Lead!
Always, Melony

Spring Reflections

Rev. Melony McGant, Mom Betty J. Tilman, and Mark Lewis, CEO POISE Foundation Announcing the Creation of The Poise Foundation 
Betty J. Tilman Good Neighbor Legacy Fund

Spring Reflections...


I take a moment to still myself and bow in Gratitude to the Blessed Creator for my life of Purpose.

I Breathe Deeply 10 Times.  In Courage, Out  Integrity with Purpose.

I pray that we All continue to learn to take greater steps on the path of Love.

Right Now, let us offer prayers for those who are lost, suffering and in need of our Compassion. 

May Humanity Awaken with Integrity and allow Love to lead so that our Children thrive and grow and prosper with good dreams everywhere throughout the World.

I pray and sit in silence asking for guidance and direction.  If you were to ask have we failed, I would say that I don't know the answer. 

Often I feel as If I have failed, and that my miniscule actions leave no footprints in the sands of time.  And yet there is a place deep in my heart that tells me that I am wrong.  It is only my disappointment that causes this pain in my heart to move through my body as my nerve endings become filled with acute anxiety. 

What I am feeling is what many of you may be feeling.  The question some of us may be asking  in this time of painful transformation is "Will Hope Be Enough for All to Re-Connect to Our Divine Source of Love?".   The Truth Is that All Actions of Love Make this World Better! 

I close my eyes, trust and allow time to pass.  I continue to breathe and exhale.  In Hope.  Out Love.  I follow the Light through the darkness.  Each step I take into my heart fills me with Grace and gives me Hope. 

I vision Good Change on Earth.  Good Change is not always comfortable or easy.  Sometimes Change brings confusion and chaos.  I Breathe.  The World Is Changing.  I Am Changing.

I hold on to Faith and ask for more Courage.  I keep moving towards the Light.  I Breathe.  In Hope.  Out Love.  I thank Our Blessed Creator.  I honor Our Ancestors, Angels and Saints.

It is Spring.  As I step into Good Change, I imagine that I become the Light.  All around me are other Lights.  We are those Spirits Awakening with Respect and Integrity.  Together We Are Breathing.  In Hope. Out Love.

My dream continues. Collectively we honor our Elders and our Children. We vision a World of Loving Peace where there is equity,  good education and housing; as well as a blossoming sustenance and Good Possibility for All.  We share Lovingly.  We Forgive. We smile and decide to work together to help heal our broken hearts and our Earth/Heart.

Somewhere buttercups, tulips and magnolia trees are beginning to blossom. Robins and hummingbirds sing.  The powerful voice of blue jays is heard even by dolphins and whales.  The oceans roar and the wind calls on us to Love.  And Love vibrates and spins new melodies.

Yes.  It is Spring, and Change Is Here!  Hope, Love and New Possibility fill the air.  It is time to continue our individual and Collective Journeys with  Courage, Integrity, Purpose and Respect for Eachother. 

Peace is Possible through Compassion, Forgiveness, Integrity,  Kindness, Mercy and the Grace of Love!

With Joy, Humility and Gratitude----Let Us All Breathe Deeply.

Always, Melony

For Every Soul Spirit...

For Every Soul Spirit...

Dear Soul Spirits....
Clear your minds and your hearts. ...
Think and Feel Only Love.

Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly Ten Times...
In Love. Out Love.
In Love. Out Love.
In Love. Out Love.
In Love. Out Love....

Though some of you
try not to think of US
or feel our energy,
like an arrow the very thought
of Potential Oneness
always creates a bulls eye of Love
in Our OneHeart;

Much like thousands of eons ago
when the Uni-Verse was being created
and All were Spirits of Light
learning to Love.

So many Spirits came separately to Earth
and sometimes were seduced
by the Power of Darkness.

Some found each other as Warriors
from different lands;
vowing to conquer;
forgetting memory of a Divine Purpose.

Each time you partially
Awakened throughout the ages of Time;
from the Stars and Heavens,
throughout every known or
unknown Galaxy...

We Called for You.
We Sang and Danced for You.
We Prayed for You.

Was there ever a right time? 

 You have lost us; and found us
again and again---lifetime after lifetime.

Still so many were caught up
in cycles of mire and material illusion.

Some of you grew to doubt our sincerity,
and looked everywhere but Within
for the purity of your hearts,
which once you gave freely,
and now, do not admit to Re-Membering.

We Are Forever ONE,
fully Awakened and Re-born
in the Creator's Love.

We Are Forever ONE,
bound only by Heaven.

We offer our courage, devotion,
humility, and compassion.

We imagine that ALL honor
the melody of Eternity
and dance the Soul's Dance.

Do you know that the Memory
of Divine Essence lives in you still?

One Day we will meet again,
with respect for All Loving Creations
without the need for fear or greed;
and in your Loving Innocence,
All Will Re-Member
the Creator's Song!

Until then, We Thank ALL
Who Have Awakened.

We Ask Each of You
to Have the Courage,
and to live always with
Grace & Divine Purpose.

We will continue to send the
Healing Vibrations of Lights
filled with Compassion, Hope,
Integrity, Faith and Love.

Re-Member, We Are ONE
Only In LOVE!

Ashe! Namaste! Ubuntu!

Always, Melony
Peace is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Hope, Forgiveness, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Patience, Respect, Understanding and the Grace of Love!

The Rock of My Heart! #IGiveThanks

                                  The Rock of My Heart! #IGiveThanks

I ponder the rock of my heart that has broken a million times over, and yet still grows stronger.  Every broken piece floats through the Uni-verse as Love's lesson of Undying Faith.

I Breathe and Exhale Deeply Ten Times. I Give Thanks.  I Give Thanks for each breath and for this journey of life. 

I Give Thanks to the Elders and Ancestors who nurtured us, and Ascended into the Heart of G-d, often too soon for us with broken hearts. 

I Give Thanks for the Undying Faith and Courage of those who whose lives were cut short because of illness or violence and war.  I honor their lives and pray that through Love, they have been able to find their place in Heaven Realm.

I Give Thanks for our Continuing Collective Intention to Love even when our hearts break in the midst of Chaos on Our Earth/Heart.

I Give Thanks for the Gifts of Mercy and Forgiveness offered through Divine Spirit that allows us to believe that the only good answer to Earth's Crisis is to learn to Love One Another.

I Give Thanks for Good Possibility.  No matter how difficult through Love, we are given the Faith to extend a hand, to open our hearts, to heal, and Begin Again.

In my acceptance, even my tears become the honey of Hope, offered humbly with Good Intention and Actions of Love.

I Breathe and Honor this New Day of Grace with Undying Faith! 

YES, Peace is Possible through Compassion, Forgiveness, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy and Love!

I Give Thanks!

Bring Harmony To Gardens Of Our Hearts!

               Bring Harmony To Gardens Of Our Hearts!

Listen to the whispers of the Uni-Verse and the cries of the winds, the mountains and oceans.

We are hearing and feeling the echoes of dissonant harmonics of Mother Earth. Our greed causes imbalance, death and destruction. Our many actions of violence and hate are disrupting the Creator's Heart.

Re-birth and Transformation are possible only through a Resurgence of Love.

Only through Love can we provide safety for our Children, nurturing them and our Elders with Hope through Grace so that our Earth Garden and Hearts Blossom with Good Dreams and lives of Opportunity Grace and Mercy.

Breath Deeply Ten Times. In Love. Out Love. In Love. Out Love. In Love. Out Love.....

In the coming of this New Season of Re-Birth, we must ask for, and embrace Divine Wisdom.

We must speak the Truth to each other honestly, and acknowledge our wrong actions so that there is Peaceful Reconciliation and we can move forward in Love.

We must honor and respect each other, and through our diplomatic actions call for an end to the many economic, social, spiritual and political injustices, as well as the end of violence and war.

Today Allow Your Heart to Awaken. Embrace Divine Wisdom. With your every thought and action--- Plant, and Nurture New Seeds of Hope, Compassion and Cooperation.

It Is Through the Gift of Love that Our Good Dreams Will Blossom and Bring New Harmony in the Gardens of Our Hearts, On Earth and Throughout the Uni-Verse.

Again Breathe Deeply. In all ways live to Honor Our Blessed Creator. Offer the Gift of Love!

Always, Melony

Beyond the politics of corporations, governments, religions and who's who in the social hierarchy of communities, you will discover Prosperous Mountains of Hope;  hidden in every Heart; but sometimes forgotten by people who live in fear.

Courage, Mercy, Truth and Respect live in these mountains-- with the desire only to be of service, and to build a World of Love.

Offering An Apology...

Offering An Apology...

"Good afternoon Melony, I would like to start off by apologizing for bringing negative energy to the group today. That wasn’t the best representation of myself, and I regret anything I may have taken from the group. I also want to thank you for your time and effort. It’s not everyday a person can be so negative, and get such a respectful response in return even when they don’t deserve it. I can tell you care about people in a more meaningful way than just on the surface. That’s your gift and I’m grateful you shared it with me."

Recently I was offered a Profound Apology and it touched my heart and healed many old wounds with Love. I thought all the times that I myself had fallen short of being my best self and had needed to apologize. 
An Apology offered is one of the most compassionate and Loving acts that we can offer ourselves and others. It opens the door to Hope and allows Us to Live with Dignity and Love.

Today let us consider the Healing of an Apology. 
Breathe and Exhale Deeply In Love and Respect 6 Times.

In Love and Respect. Out Love and Respect. In Love and Respect. Out Love and Respect. In Love and Respect. Out Love and Respect. In Love and Respect. Out Love and Respect. In Love and Respect. Out Love and Respect. In Love and Respect. Out Love and Respect. In Love and Respect. Out Love and Respect.

Let Us Say to Ourselves...

"Because I am willing to value, forgive and nurture myself, I am able to see the good in others; to have the courage to apologize with humility; and to nurture every relationship with kindness, compassion and respect. I focus on Good, Forgive all mistakes and nurture myself and All Others. In this way, I grow to understand that every Apology offered helps bring a bit of Peace to the Heart of Humanity!" 
And So It Is With Love! 
Always, Melony
