Interview with an extraordinary life coach June Penick Miller

JUNE PIC

 

Hello June,

I remember first meeting you in the back room of a flat in Paris. Even though there was hardly any light your incredible energy lit up the room. From then on, and throughout our friendship, your incredibily positive energy and perception of things and people continued to amaze me.
1/Could you please tell us what and when you became aware of this incredible source of energy that was inside you and what triggered off your desire to go deep into yourself to reach this level of awareness and to trust your intuition . Growing up I always thought something was ‘wrong’ with me. I was always told to sit down and be still and when that didn’t work my rebellion landed me in a hospital ‘for observation’. It wasn’t until I left home (and the hospital) at 17 that I begin to realize there was something ‘right’ with me. In the early 70’s it wasn’t popular to ‘look at yourself’ but I had to figure out what this abundance of energy was, why I felt so compelled to understand my ‘Self’ and eventually I came to understand that this abundance of energy could be directed and focused for helping others. The more I dove into myself, the more I understood others and the more I understood the spirit world.
2/I think of you are as the perfect example of interior beauty reflecting exterior beauty. There is definitely a glow and light coming from your energy. Your awareness of the power the inner self has led you to become a life coach and a healer. I know that you have an unlimited source of solutions and that each individual is unique and that you provide them with a tailor made clear path, but could you give us a few guidelines for inner happiness? The thing to remember is that we aren’t supposed to be happy ALL the time. The times we aren’t happy don’t have to last very long, but we can use those times to get to a deeper experience of happiness at our core. As a culture, we tend to look outside ourselves for satisfaction. And even though we find it, it’s temporary. The one person you wake up with every day is you. The person you listen to more than anyone else in the whole world is you. The person who you are going through life with no matter what is you. So who gets to decide if you wake up happy?
So many people get stuck in the story of their past and give it all this weight and it becomes an excuse to not be happy. Shame becomes the thing that we work so hard to cover up when if we would take it out and look at it, process it and put it in its rightful place, (a friggin’ septic tank!) we could get on with being happy.
3/How does inner well being connect with the power of NOW, and do you think that this is a major contribution in getting to the core of a person and the essence of our being? Well, if you want to get technical… all the good stuff only really shows up in the ‘Now’. Intuition can only talk to you in the moment. The feeling of joy we all look for happens in the moment. To be touched deeply… yep.. only happens in the NOW. So how does all that contribute to your inner well being? Just consider the value of what its like to be in the right place at the right time, or the value of feeling recognized for who you are at a soul level and the joy that comes from laughing from your gut. All of these things and more contribute to the essence of who you are and they only show up in the ‘Now’.
4/People create their own sufferings, through creating unnecessary needs, comparing themselves to one another, they are restless, their mind wandering constantly, never being satisfied always thinking of the past or apprehending the future.. What would your advise be on a daily basis? First I would have them watch this skit with Bob Newhart called “STOP IT” and laugh at themselves. http://youtu.be/Ow0lr63y4Mw – Then I would encourage them to take steps to recognize the power that their thoughts have over what is or isn’t showing up in their lives. We get to decide which thoughts we keep and which ones we put in a container somewhere – the more restless the mind the more dug into the mud we become. Its not easy to see something like it’s already happened when we’re down in the dumps but that is the first place to start. Everything, Everything, Everything, Everything (did I mention everything?) begins with our THOUGHTS. If you can see it like it’s already happened you are halfway there. Hold. That. Thought.
5/ We are all born with intuition but don’t trust it yet it is great common sense . Would you recommend dropping the barriers and going along with this approach as opposed to a more pragmatic one?

Of course! It’s how I’ve lived my life and got me to here. But it doesn’t matter if I recommend it or not because we each have our own way of ‘listening’. Until something draws us in or wakes us up to our inner vision or inner hearing we will continually default to a more pragmatic approach. Whatever triggers someone to begin to trust their intuition is a result of feeling safe rather than an intellectual conversation about whether to trust their intuition. If you’re driving down the road and the sign for where you want to go points to the right, but your intuition is telling you to turn left – you turn left not because of your intuition but because you trust your intuition. So, I recommend Trust. It may not look like it’s taking you where you want to go but it knows a lot more than you and there’s always a positive reason your intuition is trying to get you to go in a particular direction. Like I said. Trust.

6/Where can we find you? Do you give consultations and could you give us your details?

Yes! I would love for you to find me! You can find me in person either in New York City or St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands but I’m always available to take appointments by phone or on Skype! Personal Development is a process, Self Discovery, Healing – all a process. It would be my pleasure to help you see something about yourself or your life thats been hidden from your view – something that could make a real difference for your life. My website is www.OhJune.com. My email address is June@OhJune.com. Once you make a request I will get in touch with you.

Are there any books or films you could suggest? As a matter of fact…. I am LOVING reading “The Soul of Money” by Lynne Twist! Also anything from John Perkins! “ShapeShifting” “The World Is As You Dream It!”. I would also sign up for newsletters from www.Pachamama.Org. and get involved in anything they do. They are the real thing!

SWIMMING IN FREEZING COLD WATER

14069386880_8d2df89f32_z-2SWIMMING IN COLD WATER

I have been swimming in cold sea water from 18 degrees to 15 now every other day for the past month. The results are spectacular, whether for the morale, the energy level, toning, accelarating the metabolism, results are amazing.
Cold water stimulates your parasympathetic system, it triggers the release of dopamine and serotonin. Along with the effect of endorphins and adrenaline from the plunge, ice swimming is packed full of neurotransmitters that are vital to keeping us happy. This is a natural substitute to anti-depression medications so if you are near the sea, or a lake jump in or if not, try standing in a cold shower a few minutes a day.

Natural benefits and advantages of ice swimming:
More vitality
Improve memory performance
Reduces pain associated with fibromyalgia, rheumatism, or asthma
Increases your defense system
Gets your blood pumping
Enhances your sex life
Burns calories.

Is an all-natural high

Winter swimmers talk a lot about the ‘HIGHS’ they get from cold water – a feeling of wellbeing that’s so encompassing that it becomes quite addictive

The cause? Endorphins.

GET YOUR BLOOD PUMPING

Being cold sends blood it to your organs and make you feel ALIVE……

ALSO: Economical, ecological, free ant-depressant.

C’est l’année d’Emmanuelle Bercot ! Après être venue présenter son film «La Tête Haute» diffusé pour l’ouverture du Festival de Cannes, l’actrice-réalisatrice française a monté dimanche une dernière fois les marches de la Croisette pour venir recevoir le Prix d’interprétatoin féminine.

Elle a été récompensée pour sa prestation dans «Mon Roi» de Maïwen. Elle participe ainsi au joli palmarès français lors ce 68e Festival de Cannes.

C’est dans une belle robe noire, avec un maquillage lumineux et naturel qu’Emmanuelle Bercot est venue recevoir son prix des mains de Tahar Rahim. «Ce prix, je veux dire à Maïwenn qu’il récompense son audace, son sens aigu de la liberté, son anticonformisme. Après «Polisse», elle pouvait viser les plus hautes sphères, avoir les plus grandes actrices. Et non, elle a choisi une inconnue de 46 ans pour être son actrice», a-t-elle déclaré, émue.

Depuis les premières marches cannoises jusqu’à la cérémonie de clôture l’actrice a pu sublimer les tapis rouge avec l’aide de Guerlain. A 47 ans, l’actrice illuminait la scène avec une mise en beauté signé Coral Clark pour la marque parisienne.

FREE YOUR BODY AND MIND BY WALKING AND FASTING

DSC_0584

Yes, it is possible to go for a week with no food….

For your first fasting experience it is best to do it in a specialised group with experienced practitioners for support. I went to a centre called Jeune et randonnée in la Drome France. When I enrolled I was told to prepare my body a week in advance by cutting out coffee, sugar and slowly reducing meals to vegetable. After a long drive I reached a windy dirt track off a main road dug into rock cliffs which eventually led to a dead end where there was a house tucked at the foot of an impressive mountain. This was where I was going to stay a week. While driving 6 hours through the Alps I had mentally prepared myself for this experience.

I was a little nervous since my up bringing had always been paced with recommendation such as: “Finish your plate”, “What are we having for lunch, when are we doing the shopping etc… Whether these were post war fears, during which there had been rations I don’t know but food takes up a huge part of our time, shopping, cooking, cleaning and organising each meal, and especially in France….we love our food…

When I arrived a group of people all ages and gender was gathered outside in the garden, we were all there for the same purpose so our introduction was easy and we instinctively knew that we would need to support one another, some were on their second week of fasting, others had a yearly routine of fasting and like me some were experiencing this for the first time.

That evening we were given some sodium chloride (taste disgusting) that was very efficient to clear our intestines over night. We were also allowed some herbal tea.

The next morning after a few warm up exercises we marched off with our coach and guide into the mountain having only had half of a small glass of organic apple juice. He gave us information as we started off about how much water we should drink, to walk at our own pace and that we would be returning at least 6 hours later to the house. Surprisingly enough I was not hungry on the first day, we drank a lot, rested under a tree at midday walked slowly passing our steps around the mountain paths where not a sound was heard, we were so far from civilisation, not a car, or machines only the sound of our breaths, birds, insects flying, the wind, or footsteps trading the moist grass, and at times the intense, vast sound of silence. The mechanical movement of the walk freed us from thinking about our usual routine and kept us active enough not to think about food. And so the day went by, we got back, showered, rested, read our books and gathered around the table to discuss our experience with warm teas. Because of the altitude, the clean air, the silence, the exercise, we all slept well. And so the days went by, time was suspended, no cooking, no shopping, no cleaning, no washing up, no trash, no schedule, my mind was freed of all these things that monitored my every day life.

Our coach explained how our bodies depending on our weight could keep going for days without food only taking in water, he calculated that I would be able to survive for 100 days by just drinking water. This was reassuring, there would be no more food panics over empty fridges.

As 2 days went by, day 3 was the most difficult and after 4 hours climbing I felt a little weak my coach then brought out a miniscule spoon and a pot of honey and filled in a quarter and gave it to me for energy. I was suspicious, how could such a small quantity have an effect on my body?

A few seconds later I was back in the group on track speeding up the hill. Such a small amount of sugar had given me enough energy. We eat way too much; our body needs very little food to keep going. Our energy is therefore spent absorbing digesting processing all this food. So much of our time is spent preparing meals we only need small portions of healthy non processed foods…

This was our first meal after 6 days of fasting, organic freshly picked vegetables.
IMG_1592IMG_1589IMG_1590

I came back feeling clean and pure like a baby, my skin looked fresh and toned, I had so much more energy…The key is to then fast one day a week or monodiet by eating one same food in 24 hours, to keep that same energy going. Fasting should be done in a specialised centre with experienced practitioners, consult your doctor before you go…

Aleppo soap

This is a reminder of lives their history and their culture culture,The Aleppo soap is the first hard, authentic soap to be created in the world. It is famous for its remarkable qualities and historical background. The production methods used to create this soap have been preserved to this day by Aleppian master soap makers. Since the 8th century families have been producing Aleppo soap in small scale and using the same techniques which has maintained this 13 century old tradition.

Aleppo soap is considered one of the purest soaps ever made, created exclusively with the most natural ingredients. It is made of olive oil, laurel bay oil, sodium hydroxide and water. In some cases some other natural ingredients are added such as honey, pure essential oils, red clay, dead sea salts and argon oil.

Aleppo soap is boiled with olive oil and laurel oil. The quantity of both oils used may vary from one soap bar to the other. Usually olive oil is between 60-98% while laurel is between 2-40%. The soap which has the most amount of laurel oil in it is considered to be the most valuable and it has the most costly production. Aleppo soap doesn’t contain any artificial colorings (its color is due to the proportion of laurel oil), no artificial fragrances and flavors, parabens, foam establishers, perfumes and no animal fats. This makes the soap the ultimate natural product, with properties that are extremely good for the skin.

Over two thousand years the town of Aleppo in ex-Mesopotamia has preserved this ancient processing method which is the soap’s main secret. The large blocks of soap are made by hand using traditional method, these soaps are cut into blocks and stamped with the mark of the manufacturer. After, the soaps are set out to dry for a period of 6 to 9 months on racks in well aerated arches. During this drying process, the soap gets both hard and its color changes from olive green to a beautiful deep gold. The color the soap acquires depends mostly on the amount of laurel oil the bar has. Color ranges from a pale yellow (small concentration of laurel oil) to a deep brown or golden color (large concentration of laurel oil).

Aleppo soap is so mild, gentle, moisturizing and natural that it can be used on adults, babies, small children and even pets. It will not dry your skin out and once wet it has a luxurious, smooth and creamy feel. After each use your skin will feel refreshed. It is most popular because of its stronger disinfectant, regenerative, purifying properties which help sooth sensitive skin. Anyone who finds themselves suffering from skin allergies, irritated skin or conditions such as general dermatitis like eczema, psoriasis, bacterial dermatitis, acne, herpes, rosacea, it also helps prevent hair loss and it aids in the recovery of skin diseases. It’s recommended for all skin types. Olive lo is very rich in vitamin E and polyphenole, which is a useful anti-oxidant that can help delay the effects of aging while the bay tree oil has antiseptic properties. It tones, stimulates and brightens skin complexion. It is an excellent product that can be used against spots and pimples. It softens and nourishes the skin without causing dryness and irritation.

This product is said to last for months due to its high density and it is also cost effectiveness it can replace shampoo, conditioner, face soap, body soap and shaving cream.There are several types of Aleppo soap products on the market, including solid soaps (in bars, cubes), liquid Aleppo soaps, clay masks, soap flakes (for washing clothing) and sachets for linen.. Normally all of them are imported from Syria. Aleppo soap is slightly pricey compared to regular bars of soap. In the United States prices range form $7.80 to $11.40 approximately. In the U.K. prices may range from $6.00 to $10.45 approximately. Most of these products are found online, so you also need to consider shipping and handling together with the soap’s price.

Manufacturers claim that the advantages linked to the usage of Aleppo soap are endless.When used on the face and body, the soap will clean the skin deeply while it eliminates the peeled cornea layer, the sebum and sweat (which is the main cause of a tarnished complexion), dust and other micro-bodies of the environment. It can also be used as an excellent make-up remover. using Aleppo soap will aid in preventing infection. Also, the la of artificial coloring or other chemical additives is the reliable guarantee from allergies or other attacks that may harm the skin if rubbed by an industrial soap.

Some Dermatologists advise to use Aleppo soap to eliminate the hydro lipid, sebum, excess from the skin. In the case of people with sensitive skin, it is recommended to use Aleppo Soap Flakes to wash linens, baby clothes even lingerie; any garment that may come in contact with the skin.Aleppo soap has a forgotten quality in the Western world, but known in the Eastern world, which is an effective way to eliminate clothes moths in the closet.
