  • FREEDOM!
    ball and basketball But there was something strange afoot when I was constantly falling over I didn t think much of it and would just pick myself up and carry on My mum noticed that it was happening more than with other kids so she started paying closer attention to the way I was walking The signs of MD weren t showing up yet so I looked like a normal five year old boy who dragged his feet My feet were turned slightly inwards when I walked and they dragged with each step My mum took me to several specialists who seemed to think I was just being lazy But I remember running jumping climbing trees slip and slide my mother knew I wasn t lazy One winter out at the cabin I fell and broke both of my heels My bones it turned out were under mineralized I was in casts for months straight through the summer My brothers and sisters got to enjoy our backyard pool I got to lean over the side dunking my head in making sure not to get my casts wet By fall it was time to get them removed Wouldn t you know it three months out of the casts and I go and do it again both heels crunched This time I got colored casts one blue one red How fashionable It was a Dr Davis I think that was able to point us in the direction of the neuro muscular disorders My feet were only turned inward a little at first they would turn more over time I would need tendon release surgery to stop my nose dives The surgery turned my feet outward like a penguin There were four surgeries on my legs total My mum was with me throughout

  • Sonny's Blog
    Thank you Mother earth for the gifts of our bodies May you always help us to remember who and what we are star stuff that landed in the ocean a very long time ago showing up today as this imperfect perfection Always prepared Best Sonny April 15th 2010 Day 44 I am creating a Love Corps I am attracting people towards me who in their hearts know that there is a better way These people know of a hidden truth deep within themselves and are lucidly aware that half the story of life has never been told This goes for most of life as we see it including the realm of disease A wise man once told me Never accept appearances which is to say remember who you really are For I and I are collections of trillions upon trillions of quantum cells of light showing up in this world I am the one known as Sonny to make it easy for my ego and other egos to accept what appears to be a solid body Beyond this we are extensions and direct reflections of this light to one another This Love Corps is a group of people representing so many different aspects qualities and gifts When I see these people and we work together towards a goal I am directly experiencing what I know to be truth of myself and others and of the supreme force that fuels all of life Come I invite you to be a part of this Love Corps to sit or stand tall in this world to lead by our example of our hearts depth to go forth with courage knowing that it could all go up in flames at any moment from the sun going super nova Join me and the Marathon of Freedom towards creating the awareness needed as we inaugurate the coming of the golden age I need you to dig deep for the inspiration that is living you that part of you that is beyond ego beyond opinion and personal preferences beyond labels You are not your name your name is a frame Be frameless Best Sonny April 12 2010 Day 47 On this day 30 years ago the legend Terry Fox began running off the east coast of Canada If you havn t been inspired by Terry s existence yet I do recommend exposing yourself to the Foxes powerful medicine Still as potent today as it was then I am certain I am not the only one that holds Terry as a true vision keeper and warrior of the light Every culture every generation every ancient society celebrated their wayshowers 30 years seems like a long time for some For others it is a blink of an eye In the wide scope of things Terry carried on what has been a sacred tradition among warriors and sages for many many ages The journey or the heros journey It had been playfully brought to my attention today that this is the 30th anniversary for Terry s Marathon of Hope This year also happens to be my 30th birthday on the departure date of May 30th from the west coast for the Marathon of Freedom In no way do I compare myself to such greats as Terry but what I have come to know is true is that if I haven t a model or an example or a teacher or a wayshower to show me the way then my dreams and aspirations can never be firmly rooted in purpose and intention This takes faith and courage to accept everyone and everything as a teacher is a true discipline It takes even more fortitude to never compare yourself or let others compare you to anyone or anything besides God I know I am not blazing new trails through the highways and the hills of the Trans Canada However I wish to use this route as an example or a metaphor of the many ways in which we can follow a path back and through our own hearts to discover that each of us has the power to awaken that true hero potential and to follow this sacred path means to follow in the footsteps of many many a wise man and woman To the undying spirit of Terry the Fox that still spreads it wings of light and sours this galaxy waiting for your very invitation There is a hero within you without a doubt is it trying to get in you or is it trying to get out Blessings Sonny March 30th 2010 Day 60 Today as I rolled out of my apartment building out to my car to head to the gym I was stopped by a small pigeon in the middle of the road It clearly was struggling to fly I wasn t certain if it had hurt its wing or leg I rolled over stopping traffic to investigate I then learned that the poor thing had injured its leg somehow as its wings fluttered more rapidly the closer I got We were both nervous I said to it silently that I mean no harm and to not be afraid It probably was frightened by the wheelchair The only way to get it off the road was to pick it up so I gently did and from my hands it attempted to fly away Exhausted it only made it up so far before it did a nose dive back onto the paved road There was a bit of blood on its beak It tried this several times to fly away I quietly encouraged it to go fly home I could feel that part of it not wanting to give up to keep going and live another day There was an intense feeling of sadness that came over me when I could feel its weary heart giving in to the struggle as It came down once more and landed on a muddy curb It was then I picked it up wiped away the mud from its eye rubbed its head and spine to comfort it it lay lifeless in my hands perhaps trauma to its head or maybe its heart stopped I felt the moment its spirit left Now lying on its back a final spread of its wings in my direction I could feel the warm transmission of its energy with hovering hand as I repeated journey well brother I wondered what I would do next when suddenly a native man came up to me and asked toast picked it up and placed it amongst some trees and bushes So delicate is life I understand the spirit of persistence that will to live is within me and all my relations Something within me died with that bird today Another interesting evolutionary experience To you all journey well Best Sonny March 25th 2010 Day 65 What does it mean to die a little death To be reborn To draw closer to who we are To peel away layer upon layer dying to those things that we once held of ourselves as most sacred assumptions I am experiencing a letting go of many things these days This can also relate to receiving too Letting go of that part of me that is held up in receiving love or gifts from another For example I recently was given a bed from a complete stranger having been camping out on the floor of my apartment since I moved in Jan 1st I almost closed down at the opportunity Not only from leaving the straight backed humbleness of floor sleeping but as well being given such a gift as to elevate my practice of Other things have included life in general Though overwhelming the truth that the imperfect impermanence of this life is but a fart away I cannot but muse the idea that a life of purpose equals a life of destiny and once this is fulfilled we are no longer needed Best Sonny March 25th 2010 Day 65 Two videos discussing the medical side of Muscular Dystrophy followed by the Shamanic world view perspective of illness and disease In order to become whole as an individual I must consider all angles What a doctor might say may be just as important as a message from spirit guides and animals Enjoy http www youtube com wat ch v 3A0nj0dFbmU NR 1 http www youtube com wat ch v JCPOGtqmCCI feature r elated March 24th 2010 Day 66 Today I would like to replace the word Synchronicity with the word Love As I do this dance with purpose that still point of life s great gift that one that seemingly makes its way around knowing that it never has or ever will exist anywhere but within me the course of study and frequencies of love come at me with such an intensity of speed that to miss its presence is blind When connected to your purpose you will experience an amplification of loves width and depth Remaining connected is true discipline or as a great teacher said Blissapline Do what you must to engage loves awesome power and the gift of synchronicity will become your daily bread There is no doubt in my mind that magic does not exist in this earth realm All my relations Gratitude Best Sonny March 23rd 2010 Day 67 The more I contemplate the concept of freedom I am at once forced to face an even deeper mystery of time or what I think time is How many times have you glanced at your watch or the clock on the wall today Can you feel into that part of you that is anxious to leave work and get home We can be slaves to the clock totally forgetting about our subtle awareness to what I will call here Galactic time or universal time That s why it takes days to fly to the moon when really to us it appears almost an arms length away Time expands the further out we get from our earths spheres I do my best to evoke this truth during those times I am sullied away from the present moment allowing this 100 day count down to have significance and depth unfolding the way it must in order to realize truth There are pressures and pit falls and at any moment I can choose to submit or surrender my preferences to the sweet guidance of my own inner pilot that one that is without space and without time Gee whiz look at the clock gotta go Best SonnyD March 22nd 2010 Day 68 I love reading my horoscope and having readings done for me whether it s oracle or tarot readings I breath in and take whatever insight or knowledge I gain towards my own personal growth and discard the rest My latest one talks about the planetary movements affecting changes right now as they have forever and in my life this is certainly true Moving towards any goal or dream will stir up obstacles and chaos As these things arise it is of paramount importance to not take anything personally Whatever comes up as a result of wanting freedom are just exams Healing means to grow This growth comes as a result of your awareness and the more you grow the more you experience healing in your life Presently the exams that are showing up are allowing me to grow into a deeper wider understanding of who I am and what we are Free beings A teacher said You cannot know freedom without having been to prison Best Sonny March 17 2010 Day 73 Understanding a deeper truth of dreaming and having goals there is a certain essential aspect of letting go and allowing room for the universe to configure itself to my desired manifestation This also very much includes practicing patience as my personal units of energy must arrive at and act in accordance to the new phase of energy and learning I may wish for a million dollars right now but do I have the personal power yet to hold and let flow through me such a large amount of numbers Thank God for the buffer of time to allow me to grow up and into the dream that is on its way A teacher once told a story of the first moon landing and all of the directional changes they had to make Their goal may have been to land on the moon however the route to get there went side to side all over the map of the galaxy of course Ah life Here is part 2 of the article from http sportatitsbest com Enjoy SonnyD March 9th 2010 Day 81 Honesty can set you free and to be perfectly honest with myself I must admit the fact that I have felt fear fear of losing fear of succeeding fear of death fear of being blown wide open into love by a great force that is so huge and so wide It s all there I suspect it would be unnatural to feel anything but fear at this point In meditation I am reminded that I created this also I am scripting my life even as I type these words There is still much to accomplish towards this journey It has become something bigger than myself now and must given direction water and sunlight I must deal with the fear as it arises for it won t be something that goes away on the contrary as I expand so do the walls and limitations that confront my comfort zones in order to grow wider into handling more fear It isn t that fear disappears I just am able to see it more for what it is False Evidence Appearing Real Best Sonny March 8th 2010 Day 82 A full weekend of working or I should say Enjoying I began some part time work on the weekends to supplement a full on training schedule Both jobs I get to encounter all kinds of wonder filled people Meeting and greeting all day I practice feeling into and intuiting where people are before they even come up to me As they approach I open the front surface of my body and stay wide open to that fleeting moment of experiencing who I am through another Such a wide variety of shapes and colors and sounds pass through me as concierge to other humans seeking info and purchase The quality of the experience has been very much worth finding these two jobs waking up early on weekends and going to bed late and ultimately taking that deeeep breath moment to moment amping up my personal units of energy to pull it all off Here we go again Best Sonny and Chair March 3rd 2010 Day 87 Met with my manager today and chipped away at the stone together on the horn calling potential film crews for the journey Also met with my nutritionist and experienced the joys and wonders of essential oils and aromatherapy The body has one sense being and through this sense we as humans being experience healing via sight sound taste touch and smell I am open to all avenues of sensing this being if it in truth and aligned with purpose I am experiencing a quickening of meaningful events as the days unfold What is featured on a daily basis is the presence of a purpose Everything and anything I am engaging in has a voice a certain lucid quality to the thing that in its own language is saying to me yes this is on purpose you created this too breathe it in and let it go as a manifestation of a great power within you and without you I have been reminded on more than one occasion that the search for freedom comes with obstacles however the second you are able to see anything as an obstacle is immediate proof of the existence or the potent potential of being free from it Pay attention Open your eyes and accept that everything before you including obstacles is a direct result of the pure and natural condition we truly are Free Best Sonny March 2nd 2010 Day 88 As part of this journey I am creating the concerted effort required to eat feel and be my best This means allowing a lot of things I used to enjoy eating to become less and less apart of what I choose to fuel myself with Darn No more 7 11 taquitoes It is a practice of phasing out the not so good things while integrating more healthy foods until my body is totally comfortable vibrating at a different level I will not say it has been easy I have a good friend who is coaching me though this process and helping me to integrate the subtle shifts in energy that come with such things as a vegetarian raw food diet She also offers acupuncture to help foster this transition One thing I know for sure is that I have never spent 80 on fruit and vegetables alone Time to zip up another smoothie Best Sonny and Chair March 1st 2010 Day 89 Truly a great day today Still feeling the electricity from yesterdays closing ceremonies not to mention the hockey game As I sat there watching I could feel the embodiment of something much greater than I and I Over the 17 days a truly great spirit of inspiration in spirit came down and passed through this small rock in the galaxy Call it human call it the Olympic Spirit call it nothing and just allow it to be what it is a celebration of life touching all those receptive to the very movement of it causing people to connect smile sing and unite With all the controversy surrounding the events held in Canada here is something a teacher said about how we may think about this energy that awakens
