Beloved Friends,

I know the gift of coming here to meet you each, to meet you all, has been a divine guidance on the path that I am journeying, and on the journey you take as well ~ we meet in Spiritual Joy.

The hurdles in 'your' life, the mountains you are climbing, the triumphs and the falls, I want to know of these and share with you of mine so we can support each other in bright and positive ways. Life is abundant and joyful and filled with pleasant surprises ~ and some not so pleasant.

The light that shines through this site gives vast and vivacious vision to the world, through words and photos and videos and music, through art and love and peace and common interests in living the abundantly healthy life. I rejoice in the expressions here ~ right up my spiritual alley.

I look in my life to those with addictions, my father who was in AA and my brother who still avoids that part of healing and I look to myself in a wondering, what is it that I am addicted to that keeps me from emerging, from places of not revealing my light, from spaces where I have not been earning my way in this world financially? Maybe you have similar questions. Maybe we can find the answers together.

I write this so that you can feed back to me in productive and constructive ways to combat whatever has held me back from a hearty bank account. I'm not talking of greed or lust for money, I'm not talking of a zest for the riches, I'm talking about what is behind my not receiving money ~ income, what's the deal? I've studied and 'taught' prosperity principles through the wisdom of Catherine Ponder, Joseph Murphy, Charles & Myrtle Fillmore, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer and more. I live an abundantly beautiful life. Somehow I accomplish that without money, but I know there is much I am here to accomplish that calls for money.

I'm thinking there's another doorway here that I have not realized and I'm asking if there is somebody who can call forth the wisdom of 'program' to help me pinpoint what my addiction is, or maybe it is not an addiction, maybe it has a different label. (hmmmm … don’t like labels, but the word fits ~ smiles)

I need a new perspective, not another book to read, but rather a trigger, a breakthrough, an 'ah ha'. I know I can find these in your feedback, even if you don’t realize what you are giving me, whatever will fly into my soul from your sincere sharing, shall enrich me and encourage me to land in ‘discovery’ ~ that will be my personal ‘recovery.’

I was asked today why I haven't set the world on fire with the creative work I have to offer and I'm ready to be bold and do that. My passion is high and my creativity is bursting within me, dancing all around me, pleading with me to break through. I'm not 16 anymore and I don't like RULES. I don't abide by the patterns set up by our cultures and societies. An inner wisdom is called for here and anything you may have to offer could trigger, could jolt, could unleash this potential so that I can flourish in this way to show that there are no chains on me.

And, as I break through, understand, accomplish and WIN! ... SO DO YOU!

We are here to meet in Spiritual Joy.

Wow, Junnie. I just love the way (first your daughter.. but then) little Liam recited the Shakespeare back to you! Love this. Love it love it love it. And it introduces kids to Shakespeare and the joy of learning in such a fun and easy way.You artwork/drawings are amazing. And Grandpa Johnny Bird is warm and endearing. Love it!

Look at the 3 images from top to bottom, I guess you can see that from the page numbers. Also, these were before I had added other coloring, etc. Guess you can see that as well. (smiles)

I didn't know I was headed for publishing this when I started it. I was simply going to draw him up the soliloquy. Then, as it blossomed, I started linking my internal ideas and that's how I arrived where I am now. I drew Grampa Johnny Bird holding a book at the end of this book, that's when I saw him as the 'head of the publishing family.'

This was drawn in pencil first (many erasings along the way). It was created as I went and Liam watched the progress (Yes, his name is really 'Liam Somers.') I then drew in fine line ballpoint pen and colored it with my PrismaColors colored pencils. If I'd have known what I was venturing into, I would have purchased a technical pen for the drawings.

This book was begun in early May, following the April 22nd experience of Liam's recitation (at the end of the book, I have it stated that it was created 'in June' 2009) ... which is of course, true.

The vision was there, then Grampa Johnny Bird came along, expressing as the 'head of the family' (he represents my father who is on the other side) in a book created for my grandson, Liam.

You asked for the "How?" I'll give you the beginning. When I was rehearsing to do Puck's soliloquy from "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Liam was playing nearby. Later, I said to my daughter, "I've been rehearsing this speech all day and I can't even remember the first line." She replied, "Well, I'm not that familiar with it, Mom, but I think it's something like ~ 'If we shadows offend here' "

Two-year old Liiam piped in with "have offended." Then, he quickly spouted, "If we shadows have offended." (he now can recite the entire soliloquy ~ he'll be 3 November 17th) That became the beginning of "Liam Somers' Night Dream" which I am just bringing into completion. It was created in a 24 page blank Little Golden Book. Grampa Johnny Bird escorts Liam through his dream and became the 'head of the publishing family,' instructing my soul to design "Grampa Johnny Bird Books" since, of course I can't use the Little Golden Books logos, etc.

I am formulating the 'how' by beginning with creating the prototypes, a demonstration promotion that I will do at educational institutions, service organizations, places where there are monies that can willingly come forward to sponsor such an endeavor, beginning with Liam Somers' Night Dream, but promoting the entity of "Grampa Johnny Bird Books."

I would do these talks like a PBS pledge drive and offer certain packages for certain prices. I would gather the pledges and take them to the bank with a financial projection to get a loan to produce the products. Once I have the loan, I can order the printer to 'go ahead,' Then, I'd deliver the products and go to the next step. That would launch "Liam Somers' Night Dream" and then I'd go gung ho for the whole publishing institute which would target people who would want to support artists and writers to spring forth their dreams. There are so many untapped resources and its time for expression!

Here's a glimpse of Liam Somers' Night Dream. These are not scanned in as well as they will be, but you can get an idea.

Hey GF... well you've got the vision and calling... love it! You can do this. What's holding you back? And yes, everyone is self-publishing today. You can sooo do it. "Think global, start local." How do you do this? One book at a time. LOVE your vision.

To p.s. your p.s. Alexa, I really want us to all have healings from this kind of sharing. I'm so eager to have a breakthrough so I can 'pave the way,' or maybe we have many wayshowers amidst us. Encouraging others to open up and allow concerns to surface can make this so 'real' and provide great healing.

It 'is' very healing for little Junnie to be visible, to be held and loved today. You're so right. Healing and breakthroughs sit in that space of being seen held and loved.

Thank YOU

Not corny. Yes true.
Bless the warrior-ess!

Ok, Alexa, if I could do anything my heart desires, and get paid a lot of money for it ... what would it be?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm .... I would launch "Grampa Johnny Bird Books," a publishing entourage of inspired writers to share encouraging and informative stories, artfully presented and powerfully supported by a team of realized souls who have the monies to circulate ~ providing divine inspiration for young readers. A company that would encourage the development of creative skills in young children, building their self-esteem and allowing them to grow mentally, physically, psychologically, emotionally and of course, spiritually. I would love to mentor these writers, these children and magnify the monumental spiritual gifts innate within each individual. The children also would be encouraged to publish. I so want to bypass the 'gotta have an agent to publish ~ gotta have published to get an agent."

And, getting paid a lot of money would allow more and more and more to utilize the gifts so many have to give.

Namaste, my friend,

p.s. here is also what I am feeling, There is so much in your story and share that I'm sure we could all continue to have a lengthy discussion of it all. We can all relate to it for sure. And sharing our stories, it is such a powerful and healing thing to do. I honor you, Junnie. And acknowledge what you have done here. Bravo.

For now I will just also return to this too, that "We are here to meet in spiritual joyand that I feel joy as I connect in this place of sharing and healing. It is so rare. And beautiful too. And You Shine.

I hope that your inner little girl feels seen, held and loved today too. Because she is. And perhaps that is where our healing and breakthroughs truly sit, in that space of being seen held and loved.

does that sound too corney? you know, it is also true.
This is healing. It is the work of the warrior-ess.
namaste Junnie.

Junnie, thank you for the beautiful Angel-warrior card. It is sooooo beautiful! and I love it :)
And also, I have another question on the flip side: If you could do anything your heart desires, and get paid a lot of money for it... what would it be?

Namaste to all today. And yes, Sarah, if only the reprogramming was as easy as pushing a button. (it was in The Matrix.. lol). Beautiful healing and share Junnie. And I too can surely relate.

I called myself back to this quote in this moment:

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now."--

Hi Dean,

Oh, yes, I'm very familiar with Roy Eugene Davis. Thanks for the boost! Good to hear from my new friends. I'm feeling that I want to break through so that I can help others to do the same. Of all the many readings and studies and teachings I've done, I feel that I'm at the 'brink' of realizing the 'core.' Lovin' that 'teacher within!' is an online global community creating personal freedom and conscious wellbeing for ourselves and our world



 May we be at peace
May our hearts stay open
May we remember the light of our own true nature
May we and all beings be completely healed
