Getting naked for a great cause!

I am about to get naked for all the world to see -- for an extremely good reason! 

There is a message I want to share, specifically to the women who still suffer with self-hatred, to the men who love them, and to the parents of young girls and boys who are still being programmed by our culture about beauty - what it is and what it isn’t. 

I need your help to get this healing message out into the world.

Here’s what happening: I am getting painted by Andy Golub, an internationally known body painter – yes, me!! When this opportunity came to me, I jumped at it. Then it hit me…I have significantly healed my body shame!!! This is massive!!!!!! I can't believe I have come so far after years of self-hatred and feeling totally inadequate, that I can get naked  and be comfortable. Something big has happened and I want to help other women  know healing is possible by sharing my experience. 

I want to shine a light on the enormous problem that still exists today and hurts so many. We are told in our culture that unless we look a certain way, we are ugly and not loveable. I got that message like so many, and had so much pain in my life…  

Back to the naked part… I am creating a mini documentary. It is about my own journey of healing my body shame, about revealing my true self... without apology... and how anyone can heal and set themselves free. 

This month, I am getting my body painted, and I will be naked! I will be sharing on camera how I got to this freedom in my life, and how wild and crazy it is that I could even do this!  

So, this is my idea, my mission in fact... And I need your support in bringing this message out to the world. 

My message is simple... We are beautiful no matter what size or shape, and everyone has the divine right to be seen and loved... And that extra flesh on the body, or too little flesh,  doesn't mean anything other than the beliefs we give to it. That hiding has a cost and healing is possible.   

Will you help me spread this important message? To change the lie, the inner dialogue, the untrue beliefs that keep people feeling horrible about how they look and who they are. To help people feel free, shed the shame, and live their life fully expressed. To stop hiding the most precious parts of themselves. We are much more than our bodies and healing the shame allows our spirit to shine

I am offering myself, my journey, my heart’s pain and my triumph against the cultural and personal programming I received to all who want to witness my path to healing.  

I must tell you, this is quite an endeavor... emotionally and fiscally. I’m asking you to help out. If you could contribute even $20 to this project, it will really help. 

You can also help by forwarding this to a friend. Do you know someone in the magazine or newspaper business you can tell? Oprah?

The more exposure (pun intended) we give this very serious topic, the more potent this message will be…and the more we can change lives – together. 

I want every woman, young and old, to feel beautiful, because they are.

Can you imagine a world where people feel free, joyous and able to express their true selves? To have no shame, rather a deep peace with simply being alive and embodied in their human spacesuit temple that houses their spirit? 

Let's co-create a new message to human beings on the planet.

From soup to nuts, I am estimating it will land around $5000.  Wanna be part of this powerful message by contributing?

I am so excited to be doing this  with you. Thank you in advance for your support!!! 

Much love, Junie Moon

More about my story...
I want to shine a light on the enormous problem that still exists today and hurts so many. We are told in our culture that unless we look a certain way, we are ugly and not loveable. I got that message like so many, and had so much pain in my life…

You see, I feel beautiful now, even with my jiggly thighs, stretch marks, drooping boobs and extra flesh that some might consider gross. But that wasn’t always the case. I have held a lot of shame around my body. Ever since I was a small child, I have been laughed at, humiliated and judged, and it took its toll on me. I had self-hatred. I had intimacy problems. I felt ugly and unlovable. I felt I wasn’t good enough.

And I know I’m not the only one. So many of us have been told somewhere along the line that we are not OK being the way we are.

Where did these thoughts come from? Well, you know….our culture, the kids on the block, our well-meaning parents who wanted us to fit in so they dragged us to weight watchers at 12 years old. We get shaped by these messages.

Every step of the way we were being told something was wrong with us, and so we believed it – and still do.

No!!! The story doesn’t have to end there. We can get re-wired to free ourselves, to believe and own the truth of who we really are – divine and gorgeous!

Because of the healing work I’ve done for myself, I have a freedom and self-love that I never thought I could have. I want other women to know that this is possible for them too. I want people to hear my story, for it is the story of so many women and girls.

Hiding who we are hurts us and the world.  When we hold back our essence, our fullest expression of who we are, there is a cost. Our soul aches because we betray our very nature of our beautiful light AND we deny others the gift of our full expressions. 

Let’s change that!

We are days away from releasing the video!!!! I'm so proud of it. I can't wait to share it with you.
If you were thinking of donating to this great project of hope and healing around body shame, you can still contribute. I put in a lot of my own beans to make this happen because I believe this video will touch many women that suffer with body image. I would be quite happy to have a bit more support. Help me make it to $2000 by the weekend...Thanks!!

So excited to have all this support so soon out the gate. With this support, I can get so much more coverage in the media and get this message out in a big way. I have already begun my filming and my publicist is reaching out to the media!!! So cool.
I am feeling a lot. Some fear for sure. This is big for get naked and then release the pictures for all to see. BUT I feel clear in my "why" and the documentary will go much deeper with the message about beauty, what it is and isn't, and how we are all bright lights.
Thanks for all the support!
