Showing Up and Being Love: An Interview with Sunny Dawn Johnston
I’m thrilled to bring you this conversation with a woman I’m happy to call a mentor and a friend, Sunny Dawn Johnston. Sunny is a world-renowned author, inspirational speaker, spiritual teacher, and psychic medium. Combining the unconditional love of a mother and the tell-it-like-it-is honesty of a best friend, Sunny helps people move into a higher vibration of living…and a higher vibration of Being. Sunny is the author of 20 books, as well as the publisher of 365 Days of Angel Prayers, a book that is reading if you want to feel inspired and connected to the sacred on a daily basis.
What I love most about Sunny is that she is the real deal. She’s deeply grounded and practical in her approach to giving women the skills and tools they need to know and love themselves, and to connect to the beyond-human realms. In fact, Sunny has always been a heartfelt supporter of women, and over the years, she has continued to inspire me with her friendship and contagious positive attitude.
Sunny’s spiritual journey began at the age of 13, when she woke up in the middle of the night and saw a huge winged being she’d later come to recognize as her guardian angel. These days, much of her work is about helping people fine-tune their intuition for greater connection to both the divine and themselves. Whether you experience it as a whisper or a shout, “Intuition is the thing that seems kind of out there…but it’s deep and comes from a sense of knowing that when we follow it, things just flow,” she says.
Our conversation was all about how we can dial into the various vibrations of the spiritual world—from angels, to deceased loved ones, to our own souls. Sunny also discusses how self-love is her greatest life lesson and a foundation for everything she does. She talks about the importance of saying yes and joyfully taking on life’s challenges.
