New Television series and WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO!!!! Happy Holidays! November 11, 2013Posted by Mimi » add a comment
Hello you glorious beauties!
Thank you for joining us in the vibrational, creational field of MUSIC, TELEVISION, MOVIES and OH so much more!!!!!
Loads to catch up on this week! First, Styler and I have been listening to the Bob Proctor series, ‘How to Think and Grow Rich!’ In the message I was astounded to recognize how many brules, (bologna rules), I’d just accepted in my life. From that, I offer you this~
There is ENOUGH for EVERYONE on this planet to be filled with clean water, we have the resources, between the billions of people on the planet to heal nations, to provide homes for every single person, to have peace within ourselves, to have global peace, to educate everyone, to live sustainable lives, to be abundantly wealthy and share that wealth with everyone on the planet. The more filled and fulfilled you are toward truly accepting your place upon this glorious planet and having all the resources available at your fingertips to allow you to be at your optimal best, the more you will be given to create! It is your duty to be available to help humanity and all of creation move toward the light of abundance in doing what you do best! I want you to be the MOST SPECTACULAR you AND I want you to want that for yourself!!!!
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM????? A few days ago, I asked this question of a beautiful lady who was in service at a deli counter…she said she’d never been asked that question. I replied, ‘Well, now you are!’ She smiled and said she’d have to think about it.
For more information on Bob and others like him, visit Mind Valley Academy.
I am grateful for SO MANY wonderful new moments being created in our lives right now.
Happy Holiday Season for all of those who celebrate this season of bringing light back into the world, however that looks for each of you!
Styler and I began filming our new television series, ‘Amazing Grace’ last week and we are scheduled to continue filming through the Spring on 2014. Our show reveals the details of how a television series comes together as you watch us create a song for our upcoming album. We talk about the history of the song ‘Amazing Grace’, the legends, the myths, how grace enters each of our lives for transformation. How we are ALL connected, through science, through religions, all systems GO! You are with us as we talk openly about the process of creating a song, finding a producer, places to perform, venues to host the recording of our song, ‘Amazing Grace’, set design, listening in on how the band composes time signatures, what lighting looks best for what we are trying to portray, the intimate interviews for all the band members as well as the staff who help to create the show, collaborating with the African show NIMBAYA and SO MUCH MORE!!!!!!
In addition, I too have a new television chat show (name pending)… ‘Standing on the Box with Mimi Burns’, which will coincide with the show Amazing Grace where I will be interviewing people who have truly transformed in their life by stepping through the terror ceiling and just being open about who they truly are. My first guest is Styler, he is rather mind blowing!
Our thanks to all the staff and volunteers at Access Fort Wayne in addition to all of our friends who are helping to create these shows!
We’ve already been asked to submit our television series to the globally recognized and award winning GWEN network . They are on the cutting edge of empowering the world through allowing a space for the ‘yin’ state of energy to return to the world.
I am interested in having our series purchased for viewing on the BBC as well. I’m ready!
I want to thank my band this year for an ever increasing desire to perform at the highest levels.
Lastly, dear you, ….I want you to know that I support your ever increasing questions, your desire and yearning to reach more and be more and however I can pray or send out good energy for you, let me know and so it shall be, and so it already is!
SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMONDS!!!!!!

Hello you glorious spirits!
I am SO grateful you’ve stopped in for a visit.
Styler and I begin filming the new television series for our first season of, “Amazing Grace”, on November 8th.
Join us in the backstory of John Newton; the slave trade he took part in, the souls who helped to conceive the legendary song, “Amazing Grace”. The powerful message of grace and forgiveness conveyed within the song has it’s own eternal life force, it is one of the most recognized songs in the English language and has been for over 200 years.
Our intention is to inspire those around us to reach a new level grace within themselves through telling this story. Co-create with us as we dream BIG! Follow us on this miraculous journey!
Remember, when one person succeeds with the intention of healing the world, we ALL prosper!

Hello you glorious souls!!!!
After traveling around the United States at nearly 7000 miles this summer, we enter back into the fall season of creation for the new album where the main focus is on GROOVE, BABY! On the day the trek began, we made this music video. Our song, ‘Farewell Dear Erin”, was influenced through the traditional reel, “Farewell to Erin’.
Styler and I created the song from the glowing embers. I chose to write a passage for my ancestors as they made their way across the Atlantic from Ireland to come to the United States of America. Their adventurous spirits taught the following generations to hold close the passions of ‘Erin‘ through song, lyric and prose. Farewell Dear Erin is an introspective look at how people find ways to carry their ‘home’ within their soul filled heart on their grand journey through life.
We hope you enjoy the music enough to share it with all those whom you feel would be touched by listening. Jon Gillespie produced the song and Steven Manning produced the video.
You can purchase the song here.
I am SO EXCITED to share my journey with you and hear all about how each of you are doing. Our show at the Nine Irish Brothers in Lafayette is set for the 6th of September. Come out and say hello!
The Tantranova Institute will be hosting an evening with Styler and I in Chicago this October. We will be sharing our insights of music and stories of intimate life creation within our journey through tantra.
More to come! Enjoy the journey! We are here with you to offer you our support and create a grand sound track for your life!
I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!

Welcome to the Solstice! May today, the longest day of the year, bring you great insights and light!
I was told today by a fan that he switches between our site, Taylor Swift and P!NK. Thanks Craig, that’s quite a list!
Styler and I will be on featured on the television show Patty’s Page. She and her staff have been kind enough to post their recording of us, it’s a fun song to watch! Patty’s Page
So what is the plan with the band for the remainder of this year?
We are working closely with Easter Seals and GWEN this year to bring light and music to the care facilities.
Up next, I will to travel to California for a private event with Styler and we to continue to raise funds for our work at the care shelters.
We are purchasing a sound system and beginning to book shows for this fall onwards in the Midwestern states, expanding our audience and our uplifting message. I look forward to the HUGS!!!!!
Derek, Styler and I are guests on a fantastic new project brining out some favorite traditional tunes which we will be integrating into our new sets. I was asked to sing a song that my grandfather sang on his radio show in Chicago in the 1940′s. So grandpa, this one is for you, the song is Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ra. For my ancestors in the territories of Scotland, I dedicate Loch Lomond!
You’ll find all this and more on the website for Dream Rodeo (read all about the project!)
I have been practicing the glorious song ‘Oh, Shenandoah’ for our next performance.
My parents celebrate a marriage of 54 years next week! WOW! They are delightfully humorous, which I expect helps when nurture! Congratulations and thank you for the music you two! I love you!
May the world continue to hold you gently on your journey: unless you need a good shake up to get you going, in which case, may it be a grand adventure with many insights!
Blessings to each of you!
The Fish and ‘God’ June 10, 2013Posted by Mimi » add a comment
It takes a lot of faith, endurance, hope and clarity to continue to walk this path of being an artist.
There have been moments like tonight where I just want to give up and never even think about creating music again.
I’ve stayed in a poopy mood for just over a week. Picked a fight with Styler AND Gonzalo (two of my biggest champions)…
Tonight I was ready to blame EVERYONE for my inability to get the business going the way I wanted it to…..and I’d convinced myself into a terribly unhappy mental state…. but then I heard the screaming voice of ‘God’ inside of me saying ‘CHILD! GO FOR A WALK AND HEAR ME!!!!!’ (My ‘God’ sounds like a cross between Robin Williams and Queen Latifah, (but with a bit more attitude).
So, I choose to ignore THAT voice and instead, I take time to pick a fight, get pissy with people then finally, I go for my walk.
On my journey through the forest, I find a place to meditate and this is what I hear and my conversation with God;
‘CHILD, YOU are SO UNGRATEFUL! How about taking a few moments to recognize ALL that I have given you!!!!!! YOU are MY gift that MANY people cherish and are touched by what you bring into their life! YOU are NOT FINISHED and I need you to get off your piss pot and get on with your PURPOSE!!!!’
To which I am crying like a five year old….not quite to the grateful stage yet.
Then I hear,
‘Do you KNOW how many people believe in you? This is not about ANYONE else doing your work for YOU!!! I placed music on YOUR heart for YOU to do the work!!!! QUIT BLAMING OTHERS and trying to get them to do YOUR JOB! Tomorrow I want you to create a business plan, contact the women’s bureau, find out about grants and scholarships and go into areas where people want to be healed! SING CHILD! It does not matter if the ENTIRE band are with you, or if it’s you and Styler…JUST SING!
You could try something like, oh I don’t know…
THE WOMEN’S SHELTER less than a MILE from your HOUSE!!!! YOU CAN WALK THERE!!!!’
To which I say, yeah but….
Then I hear
‘SILENCE!!!!!! BE SILENT!’
…and my happy dog runs by quickly, and she waits quietly and expectantly on the bank of the brook, then a school (yes, a SCHOOL, as in LEARN SOMETHING HERE!!!!) of fish begin to flop in the very shallow water and I remember what my Native American friend taught me about animal totems as God’s direct voice speaking to you at THAT VERY MOMENT…
so I quickly look up ‘fish totem‘ and this is what it read
“Independence, Potential, Adaptation
Fish can teach us to adapt to all environments;
they can teach us to streamline our lives;
they can give us protection when we need it;
and connect us to the creative element of life: water.
A Fish swimming down symbolizes the involution of spirit.
They reveal the strength of the currents of our lives and see clearly in the murky waters of the future.
When Fish entered your life as a Totem, it will often signal one of the senses
being awakened: visions, prophetic dreams, or clairaudience is possible.
There will be greater contact with the spiritual realm.
Gratitude finally swam into my heart space!
The beautiful silver dancers made their way past me and disappeared into the flickering light of the setting sun on the stream, but what they taught me remains and walks with me upon the shore.
I was reminded to celebrate and give thanks to a good friend and a man I love dearly , Gonzalo Carrera, for setting up a fantastic interview in Classic Rock Society, the Moody Blues are interviewed in this month’s issue, as are the MBB!!!!
I was reminded of the spectacular band I have been gifted to share the stage with.
I was reminded of my partner and life companion Styler and how much we have walked through together. (Psssst, thanks wanting more and insisting on less!)
Upon arriving home, my neighbor came out and gave me a hug and said ‘I don’t know if you know this, but my son-in-law absolutely LOVES your music and he listens to it ALL the time! His best friend listens to your music as well. I overheard them talking one day about your music and that they have friends who never miss your shows!’
She ended with;
‘Maybe you just needed to be reminded that you have a gift, that you are talented, that people enjoy your music and that you do touch people’s lives.’
So tonight, I am reminded, loved, cherished and adored, as are you!
May the road rise up to meet you and may all of your days and nights upon this very sacred earth be blessed with endurance, hope, light, inspiration and a loud voice reminding you to be grateful!
