The following are the news bulletins that I have sent out to the Joy2MeU Yahoo mailing list
Tuesday September 11, 2007 10:38 am
Hello to those of you who have signed up for this list. I thought I would give it a first try by letting you all know that I have now
gotten more of my CDs in. I didn't have any for a month or so there - and am glad to have them back in stock. These are the work in
progress CDs (http://Joy2MeU.com/Audio_Dance_CD.htm ) that I have had available for awhile. As I mentioned in my Update we are working on coming up with a fully produced CD with new information added. Right now we are trying to figure out how to convert the original master recording from DAT format to MP3 - and I don't know what that means, but just thought I would give you an Update.;-)
Hope you find some moments of Joy in your Life today - and remember that you are Unconditionally Loved (even though it might not feel like it some of the time.;-)
PS I am not quite sure how this is going to work yet - so this is a more will be revealed test.
Tuesday September 25, 2007 5:25 pmHello Vibrantly Healthy Spiritual Beings.
I just posted an announcement on the site that I am canceling the Intensive that was scheduled for this coming Sunday. And due to that cancellation, I made a change to the requirements to qualify for doing an inner child healing grief group. Here is a quote from the page for those groups that I posted today (the first line is in reference to mentioning in the previous post on that page that I was hopeful that some local advertising that was made possible by someone on this announcement list, would help draw more local people to the September 30th Intensive.)
"9/25/07 - I did the local advertising in 3 different places - and 2 of the publications messed up the ads. Sigh. So, no local people
signed up and I think because of there wasn't that much time between scheduled Intensives, no out of state people either. The effect was that I had to cancel the September 30th Intensive. So, no telling when we will be able to get a grief group started. I am going to make a change to allow someone to qualify for the grief group by doing telephone counseling (An initial hour and a half plus 2 hour long follow up sessions) if they have not had the opportunity to attend an Intensive." - http://joy2meu.com/innerchild_grief_groups.htm
Other news is that the plans for the workshops in Ibiza in March have taken a large step towards manifesting. The dates would be March 1st and 2nd - but details are still being worked out (including price.) I will let you folks on this list know what is happening as it unfolds.
Remember to do some Loving things for your self today - and make time for some moments of Joy.

Last night I posted an announcement of new dates for Intensive Training Day workshops beyond the ones scheduled for November 4, December 8th & January 5th. Those new dates are February 17th & April 5th in San Diego and March 1st 2008 on the Spanish Mediterranean Island of Ibiza. The page with info about the Ibiza workshops is here: http://Joy2MeU.com/Workshop_Ibiza.htm
Think of 3 things in your life that you are really grateful for when you read this - just as a small reminder to focus some attention on
the part of the glass that is full.;-)

Hello Magnificent Spiritual Being,
Last week was a pretty interesting around here. We decided to evacuate on Monday morning because of all the fires here in San Diego County. We didn't seem to be in immediate danger - but the day was gradually turning darker as the smoke spread overhead and ashes were flying. So, we grabbed the valuable things - I put my computer in the trunk - and we headed north to the Central Coast. There was smoke all the way north because of fires in Orange County, Los Angeles Country, and Santa Barbara Country.
We stayed in a Motel 6 in Morro Bay - since they take animals and we had our cat and rabbit and fish with us. It gave me a chance to visit Cambria a couple of times and take the walk by the ocean that used to be so much a part of my life.
We got back late on Thursday, and the fire had only come within about 5 or 6 miles of our place. There was soot and ashes in the yard and driveway - but the house was still standing. We are very grateful that we didn't lose everything as so many in the County had - last count over 1500 homes burned. The extra expense is going to make paying the rent - any place close to on time - quite problematic, but the glass is definitely more full than empty, as we are all safe and didn't lose all our stuff.
Part of all the catching up I needed to do when I got back (I still have a whole bunch of e-mails to answer) after filling orders that had
gone unfilled for a week and starting to reschedule phone appointments that I had to cancel - was to deal with the situation with my tape sets. I mentioned in my August 2007 Update http://Joy2MeU.com/Update_August_2007.htm that I would be running out
of cassette tape sets soon.
I found out that I had misstated the problem in that Update. The cassette tapes that we used are actually 120 minute tapes - and it is
not that they are not available any more, it is the cost of getting a supply of them that is the problem. The recording studio where we
edited them was reproducing a 100 sets at a time for me ran out of the supply of tapes they had in stock. And when they ran out of stock it was not worth it to them to reorder because they would need to order a large number (I think a 1500 is about the minimum that their supplier required) - and they don't have that much call for the cassettes any more. I was having trouble paying for the 100 at a time in a timely manner, so they knew I couldn't afford to order the large number.
I am told that cassettes are a thing of the past and that it is more important to focus on CDs (even though they are becoming a thing of
the past I am told) - but it was sad taking the option of ordering tapes off of my ordering pages. All the hours I invested in getting
those tapes recorded (in a bedroom with mattresses lining the walls to soundproof) and editing them and all - and now I can no longer make them available. Some grief there for me. I am hoping that some abundance will manifest to make it possible to make them available again - but truthfully they are so far down on the priority list (behind rent and utilities and the new CDs and Darien's teeth and our car situation, etc.) that I don't see that happening unless I win the lottery or something. I am sure that a perfect plan is unfolding and I can accept it if that plan doesn't include having the tapes available again - but it is sad.
There is Truthfully, so much to be grateful for in my life that the details aren't that important. I am very grateful that our house is
still standing and that we are all safe. Darien (who is going to be 3 next month) came in a few minutes ago taking his diaper off and
telling me he was wet - and then he ran out to the back yard and started jumping on the trampoline half naked. He is a happy,
exuberant little boy - and he brings Susan and I so much Joy on a daily basis. I feel very blessed to have him and Susan in my life -
and to still be doing the work I Love in the telephone counseling and my Intensive workshops (the one for next Sunday 4th is almost filled and should be a really great group.)
I hope you can find reasons to feel blessed in your life today also.
PS Next Sunday is the end of Daylight Savings - just thought I would mention it.;-)

Hello Radiantly Beautiful Spiritual Being,
Last night I posted some announcements and additions on my site. They included adding some new Holiday special offers to my special offers page - mainly ones that include the Dancing in Light section of my site in combination with phone counseling and also with my Intensive workshop. I also added new testimonials to the Testimonial page and the phone counseling testimonial page - and a new set of recommended links. You can check that new stuff out on my New and news page if you are inclined. http://Joy2MeU.com/New.htm (For any of you who haven't checked out the Dancing in Light section, I have restored the
Author's Foreword to my regular site Dancing contains some of my best writing I think.) http://Joy2MeU.com/Codependency_Recovery.html
You will also notice that I included some links for Holiday articles on the New page - including a Thanksgiving article. Here is a quote from it that might be helpful today if you are feeling less than grateful on this Thanksgiving.
"What works for me is to remind myself of the difference between my wants and my needs. My Truth is that every day that I have been in recovery all my needs have been filled - and there has not been a single day that all my wants have been met. If I focus on what I want that I don't have then I feel like a victim and make myself miserable. If I choose to remind myself of what I have and how far I have come then I can let go of some of the victim perspective.
Ninety-eight per cent of the time when I am in fear it means that I am in the future. Pulling myself back into the now, turning the future over to my Higher Power, and focusing on gratitude, frees me to have some happy moments today." http://Joy2MeU.com/Gratitude.htm
It is a good reminder for me today to count my blessing - all the many gifts in my life. (A little 3 year old boy just came running into and out of my office as I type this - what a beautiful little being Darien is. What Joy he brings us on a daily basis! Talk about a gift I
could never have imagined;-) We are still far behind financially because of evacuating for the fires last month - but as I say in this
quote fear is about the future, and I don't need to know today how I will catch up on the bills (or be able to get Darien's teeth fixed -
sigh.) What I am going to do today is focus on being with my family and being grateful for all the good things in my life - for all the
miracles that have guided me on my path to this place I am at now. The testimonials I added to the site are a glowing reminder of all the people my work has touched - and is touching out there in the world. It is Truly a blessed gift to have been allowed to be of service to so many people just through following my path and doing what I needed to do for my recovery. Hopefully one of these days, one of those people writing to tell me how I have changed their lives will be somebody rich and generous in Tithing.;-)
I am going to try to find time to get my next Update finished in the next week or so - more will be revealed. I hope you can find lots to be grateful for on this Thanksgiving Day.;-)
PS. If any of you is feeling rich and generous today, Love offerings are always welcome (this is me putting out a message to the Universe - may not have anything to do with the people on this list.) http://Joy2MeU.com/Donations.html

Just wanted to send out a quick note to let you all know first, that I will be posting my latest update in the next 24 hours or so - hopefully. I am actually going to be including the messages I have sent to this e-mail list in the Update to bring people up to date. The exciting new announcement I have in this update is of a new Training for Counselors / Therapists / Coaches / Healers in how to help other people to implement my formula for inner child healing / spiritual integration / internal boundaries. It is something that I have been wanting to do for quite awhile, and something that the Spirit moves me to do now. http://Joy2MeU.com/Counselor_
So, I will be sending out the announcements about the December Update over the next couple of days - and will be in touch again before the Holidays.
wishes of Joy to You & Me
