The Dream…

In Culture, Daily Inspiration, Motivational Speaking on April 11, 2015 at 7:11 pm

So I had this dream…
Where I could be the kid in me.
Travel the world and wake up on a random beach…
Like free…Jay Caniel
Playing in my thoughts is so me…
Surrounded by foreigners
But when I smile we agree…
That crinkle in the eyes means happy…

The sunrises…
Reminds us to thank the most high…Jun E Sunrise
Gratitude displayed in the eyes…
I love the consistency of the rise…
Like the most beautiful smile…
Stimulate the thoughts in your mind
I want us all to fly…
Dig… Dig deep inside
The view is do much better from the sky…

A Jun E High…

So high…
But on the life I painted in my mind…
Made my own lane in the sky…
Just imitating the most high…
Not sure most understand
So I just greet them with a smile…
journey of a 22000 miles

Jun E Caniel


Lead by the vision and kindness in two brown eyes…
Took obstacles out my vocabulary when I was five
Determined that I would leave my legacy on this side
I learned a few things thus far in life…
You can do anything… If you tell that to the person inside
And…
Life is short, nothing is that serious, always wear a smile…
Keep good company they are hard to find
Be honest with yourself at all times…
You don’t need bridges when you can fly.
you will always end up with the pictures you paint in your mind…
Last but not least… Gratitude and knowing yourself is wealthiest thing you can obtain in life

Sankofa: Reaching Back To Get It

In Uncategorized on January 14, 2015 at 4:26 am

So here we go! It’s a new year, a new you, a new outlook and a billion new opportunities to bask in your greatness!!! We made it to another year, you guys! Whew!

Is it just us, or was the year 2014 a crazy time? And I do mean the ENTIRE year! It was a year of learning lessons and mastery of self. This week, we have shifted the focus at Jun E Caniel to reflecting (not dwelling) on the past.  As we gear up for making some pretty major and necessary changes this year, we find it necessary to play back some crucial moments in 2014 in order to successfully analyze where we “wrong” and what we got “right”.

Sankofa is the theme here in Jun E Land.  It means “reach back and get it” or “return and get it” in the Akan language of Ghana.  Sankofa is often symbolized as a bird turned backwards to take an egg off its back or a heart shape.sank_lg sankofaBirdWe interpret that to mean “learn from the past”.

This has been a recurring theme in Jun E Land, even in 2014. Members of our team have been privileged enough to learn about their ancestors and family history in the past year. These discoveries regarding our family trees have given so much insight it’s unbelievable.  It was this notion of returning to our families’ pasts that brought about inspiration for our Jun E Caniel “Sankofa” tee.

Our tee features a variation of the Sankofa bird symbol with the bird turned backwards to get a heart off its back instead of an egg.  What does this mean?  photo4 (1)Well, if you are familiar with our brand, you know we are all about challenging people to unleash their lion by realizing their own greatness and power. You can only unleash your Lion when you truly love yourself. The lion logo represents greatness to us. We all have it inside of us, but at times it needs a spark, something to make it come forth.  We need self-love. photo3Sometimes, we lose the love due to past experiences.  Maybe we allowed someone to make us feel insignificant, maybe we’ve experienced failure, or we’ve become caught up in being who others want us to be.  Perhaps we have forgotten how great we were in the first place. The Jun E Sankofa art represents the notion that we can take back the greatness/self-love that we gave up.  We can look back in the past and remember who we really are. We can remember that we are the embodiment of greatness and love ourselves unconditionally.

As we continue in this new year, we are mindful of our own greatness as a family and a brand.  We are letting go of the things that no longer serve us.  photo2 (1)At the same time, we are making sure to claim and hold fast to all the good things that 2014 gave us. We’re walking into 2015 feeling lighter, a hell of a lot smarter and energized. We are most definitely full of love for ourselves as individuals and for one another.

Go, take back your love of self, and never let it go again.  Life is Jun E, y’all.

Thank you for reading.  Until next time, be Jun E & be great!!!

What Box?…

In Daily Inspiration, Jun E Caniel Conversation Series, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on April 1, 2014 at 12:35 am

So today I had a thought…  They gave me a box to live in, and I am thankful for all people who shitted in my box… lol. You forced me to create a Jun E World… From my sister who told me I Jay Caniel would never graduate high school, to her husband who always called me a day dreamer… Then, there are the “adults”  who play the success game… You know the ones who act like they have a lot going on but really hiding behind things like jobs, marital status, houses, cars, titles, and oh yea they serve on boards lol… To the pastor who turned his back cause I didn’t want  to scam people and have them pay for salvation… I thank you all! To the “affluent” woman who referred to me as a crow, I thank you too…

To the dreamers: Take all the bricks they throw at you and build your world. Build it so big that they can’t deny you! Build! Because your intentions will uplift many. Build because you have purpose and legacy. Build so much that you have a stench about you! Then go back and extend your hand to the ones who shitted in “your” box. Then you will see that it was never really your box, ’cause you cannot be contained!  That box was theirs all along. Today is a great day… Jun E!

What Happens?…

In Jun E Caniel Conversation Series, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on March 26, 2014 at 9:32 pm

So they give us these images… They give us history, religion, a dream, education, a good lifeaamericandream2 etc… The dream comes to us in tiny boxes and we only get to choose from the right.. ‘Cause left would be so wrong… Oh! Be careful cause if you choose wrong it gives the neighbors something to talk about… Or maybe we will go to hell, or maybe their god will be angry… Hmmmm… So what happens when we don’t fit the images? What happens when I’m so creative that I Jay Caniel create my own dream, live my education and make his-story (history) into MY story? What happens when I’m not robotic enough for you to brain wash me with your ambiguous cult-like religion? What happens when you realize I’m not a sell out like the ones before me… What happens when my mane cannot be tamed? So self made you cannot even understand how I was made… Explain?
