Raising Your Vibration

What does raising your vibration mean to begin with!?

Everything is Energy – Science is proving that, Quantum Physics is proving that – from the chair you sit in, to the plate you eat off, the kind of food you do eat, the thoughts you think and the feelings you feel.

When we are in an emotional state – whether that be anger, frustration, love, joy, or gratitude as examples, they all have a different vibration.  Just like a Twinkie does to a Green Salad or a chair to a table, anger vs love – they are all different.  Some are denser than others 🙂

From Wikipedia

What is Vibration – a person’s emotional state, the atmosphere of a place, or the associations of an object, as communicated to and felt by others.

Now we do know that Love, Gratitude and Joy are higher vibrations – it’s been proven.

How does one get there if it’s not  a common state of being, have been having more crappy days than great days, dealing with a ton of stress or something along those lines so you just aren’t in a place of a higher vibrational state of being!

I want to share an exercise I did before and I did again last night – what an experience both times.

Last night I did it while I was doing Yin Yoga – so a 90 min session and I was listening to Bentinho Massaro doing some guided meditations of basically raising your state. (you can find him on Youtube – cool dude)  his exercise that I did before is really for at least 10 seconds for every minute think and feel amazing things about you, your life, your body, your being for 2 hours – set a timer and go – when I did it I couldn’t believe how fast the time went and how good I felt.

So through holding a Yoga pose (you don’t have to do Yin Yoga during this at all  – I just chose to – just don’t let yourself be distracted be fully present yet relaxed).  I kept my focus on my breath – nice long and deep breathing and keep engaging in feeling different feelings to start training my body to embody them more often – love, gratitude, excitement, creativity, empowerment, abundance, courage etc

I felt like for awhile I was almost in an altered state – it felt friggin awesome!!

Sometimes the simple things of slowing down, being present connecting with out breath, getting out of our mind and learning to embody new ways of feeling can be life changing – everything is energy and energy is powerful……..when used correctly!!  We can create more by doing that then running around being busy trying to do, do, do.

We are walking antenna’s that helps to find tune the station better and to adjust to a better station or a station more in tuned to who you truly be!!

The process is meditative and in this short video Dr Joe Dispenza explains what is’ like to be incoherent and then coherent with the brainwaves and the heart – big difference in the body and health and connecting with the Field – of Infinite Possibilities.

The more we are connected with our selves and true nature this becomes much easier, we are lighter, freer,  more in the flow and having magic happen all around us!

Enjoy

Stacey – Yin Teacher in Sayulita Mexico

Have you ever tried a Yin Yoga class?

Years ago there you would have never found me doing a Yin class – but that is when I probably needed it the most.

I was always busy doing something and on the go.  I did a lot in my day, I was busy doing and going and my work outs at the time were somewhat a physical work out – probably just to keep up with my mind!!

We live in a fast paced world now that keeps us busy doing things, going places or occupied by technology.

Many people have a hard time just sitting and doing nothing.  I know  – I was one of them!!

It wasn’t until my body said enough and I had to slow down.  At that time even doing regular Yoga was hard for awhile.

Then I tried Yin – my body loved it and it allowed me to connect more withy breath, be in the moment and become aware of how my mind kept busy – good god was it busy!!

This year I have been doing much more Yin Yoga and my body is loving it – I can’t believe how good I feel after.  Yin is where you hold poses for 2 – 7 mins and slowly go to your edge – it’s not about going deep right away but breathing into it.  Talk about learning to be present AND in the body!

In our fast paced world and also where we have so many distractions that can keep us from really truly feeling our feelings – like food, alcohol, technology etc Yin is a great add on.  Holding a pose is not always easy – most are on the floor, it’s learning to not be in the ego and push too hard too fast and also learning to be with emotions that come up as inYin a lot will be released and just witnessing the emotions (energy in motion) and learning to breath through them so they can leave the body – we hold much old trapped emotions, trauma etc in our bodies.

Ana – Drishti Center

Last night I had the privilege of being in Ana’s Yin class at the Drishti Centre in Ajijic Mexico – Ana is in the book Why We do Yoga – she is such a beautiful person and her teaching style is amazing.  She is inspirational, knowledgable deeply in Yoga, makes it fun, has great facial expressions for letting us know not to take it too seriously and a beautiful studio!

Yin has been around for awhile and what I have found out about Yin Yoga is that it is great for anyone who has had addictions, struggles with food and emotional eating, tiredness,  feeling over-stimulated, when your energy is too erratic or if your mind is overactive.

I love doing it in the evenings – it sets the stage for a great nights sleep!

Give Yin a try and I would love to hear what you think!

Thanks for stopping by

Why We do Yoga – Jessica Lusk

It’s true!  Why We Do Yoga is now available on Amazon kindle.  Later this year it will be out in hard copy and it’s also available on my site in ebook fashion!

My intention behind this book was to create great awareness of why we do, you do, one does Yoga.

I know for myself it has transformed over the years and I don’t think I truly came to the mat with the right intention, space or even attitude as I was a busy person and doing, doing, doing.  I wanted to truly get into a meditative state as I knew intuitively I needed it yet couldn’t get there.

As I have also shared it was such an honour to meet many of these Yogi’s, photograph them, talk with them, share stories or converse via email for ones further away – I have been touched by them all at a deep level.

How they shared their why’s and the pose they have chosen goes beyonds words – I keep hearing it’s touching people on a deeper level and opening their eyes up or wanting to go to the mat and go deeper in their practice or even start one!!

The first person who read the book and called me was the impact I was hoping this book would have – it made it all worth it even if it only touches one person!!

Yet I know it will touch many more!!

Here are a few from the book!

Why We do Yoga – Andrea Lewis

I do yoga to slow down my body and mind. As a type A person I am always on the go – from serving to training and coaching I am always moving my body – and my mind runs a long with it. Inner peace, appreciation and a heightened clarity is what yoga gifts me. Yin/Restorative yoga is my favourite.

Why We do Yoga – Gabe Azoulay

Yoga continues to make me feel connected to the world and inspires me to give back as much as I can. Whether sharing the physical benefits with practitioners or the confidence opportunities with aspiring yoga teachers, I feel honored and blessed that I discovered

this practice when I was 19.

Why We do Yoga – Deb Krejci

Yoga is the only thing that encompasses everything in one form of exercise for me.  It builds muscle, enhances stamina, physical rehabilitation of injuries, and stress reduction to name a few of the important benefits.  Plus, it makes you want to do better.  To be better.  To be the best version of you that you can be.  On and off the mat.  It’s the shit basically.

Why We do Yoga – Brian Clements

Yoga for me is my direct relationship with Source or Creator. This connection to source that I find in my breath is the most important, nourishing, self loving act throughout my day. In order for me to enjoy a clear and centered relationship with any one or anything else, my yoga practice is essential.

Why We do Yoga – Hana Weinwurm

Your Life is a Relefection……..

Your Life is a Reflection…….

www.jodiburke.com

Your Life is a reflection and  extension of your mind – in other words, according to Quantum Physics – your life is a feed back loop showing you what you are thinking, believing and feeling.

Are you in love with your life? How you live, what you do or who you be?

Or not?

You are the creator and have the power to change.

It starts with a knowing of where you are and where you want to be and how you want to feel.

And moving in that direction.

Any state of being unless it’s love, joy and gratitude, that you hold for longer than about two minutes is a lie to who you really are and be………..interesting isn’t it? 🙂

We’ve created habits and patterns that don’t always serve us!

Remember, YOU are worth it!!

Why We do Yoga

Why We do Yoga came to me after a Temazcal one night in Mexico – Mexican sweat load ceremony.

After the ceremony and back home, I was sitting out on the patio in a chair hammock slowly moving around, it was dark and the stars were out, there was a gentle warm breeze on my skin and I could hear the  pounding of the waves in the distance.  Out of nowhere this idea came.

As I was in my teacher training I was asking myself it at a deeper level as well.  For me it started off as a personal journey – and it’s incredible how it fit into my life at the perfect time for what I was moving through.

Why We do Yoga

When I started doing some research on the internet I knew immediately why this came to me.

The Yoga matt is where many people – mostly women but men too, come to further judge, compare, beat themselves up – not good enough, can’t do that pose, I’m not wearing the right clothing, I’m not thin enough etc

We need to stop this insanity.

This is only a glimpse – my persceptive on why I do Yoga – you will hear many other reasons.

www.jodiburke.com

Why We do Yoga

For me now Yoga has become more – since deepening the connection with myself, my mind, body soul and breath.

Since that moment sitting out that night I started sharing this idea – this book – with other Yogi’s and they kept saying Yes to it, to be part of it!

We all have different journey’s, perspectives, lives, stories, beliefs and awareness and that is why I knew it needed to have as many Yogi’s share as possible.

I have had the incredible privilege to meet some of the most beautiful, amazing, heart centred and present Yogi’s / people since embarking on this project.

Why We do Yoga

I spent the last several days going through the photos that I have been able to shoot and capture some beautiful moments – for that alone I am honoured.  I have photographed over 50 Yogi’s and I then reached out to others who I knew would be a huge contribution to this book as well yet we were miles away.

Why We do Yoga is a book that will be out first in kindle format very soon like as in May!!

www.jodiburke.com

Why We do Yoga

My wish and hope is that through one of these amazing Yogi’s that a seed will be planted, a deeper understanding or awareness of of why you do do Yoga.

Maybe you don’t do Yoga – yet, maybe you do a little, maybe you do a lot – I promise you there will be something in this book for you!

Why We do Yoga

Stay tuned as it will be out shortly and Please feel free to share this with anyone.

With so much Love, Gratitude and Consciousness

Why We Do Yoga

Wow what a crazy few weeks!!

Mercury is in Retrograde and I decided to go back to Canada during this time -flying – travelling not always a great idea as I found out on my way back!  Lets just say I would never fly United Airlines again and letting others know it!!  Rude customer agents and over priced baggage fees!

My time is in Canada and USA was busy – gathering things together to come back down to Mexico for a longer stay, packing up things, visiting friends, playing with my dehydrator and making lots of crackers, cereal and a few other goodies and shooting Yogi’s for the book coming out very soon Why We Do Yoga.

www.jodiburke.com

Why We Do Yoga

It’s been an amazing venture to meet and be able to Photograph most of these Yogi’s – words cannot describe it!  I cannot wait to share the photos, the whys and more – it truly has inspired me even deeper – whether you do Yoga or not, or something that moves the body and bring you joy, awareness and a way to connect mind, body and spirit is what is essential.

We have become extremely disconnected and uncaring – I experienced it first hand at the Airport.

Now that I am grounded for a little while in Mexico I will be diving deeper into Yoga, consciousness, awareness, energy, manifesting, real and raw foods and more!.  I have no dehydrator here but I did an amazing deal on a juicer when I got back here and will be experimenting using the sun energy for dehydrating.

www.jodiburke.com

Quiet Time

I’ve already started my sprouts, kombucha and tomorrow will be raw sauerkraut.

Whether it’s food, thoughts, feelings or intentions – it’s all energy and it all matters or will create matter!

I am realizing that people and the world are waking up – we need to – our health and the planet is headed in the wrong direction for many.  It does not have to be hard, boring, confusing or taste bad.

We are powerful creators – we create everything in our lives and we are live beings who need to be eating more live or real foods!

I joke with people now and say – once you take the blue pill and you actually swallow it – life becomes very different!

www.jodiburke.com

Go for Peace as much as possible!

Can’t wait to share.

I hope you are having an amazing day and if not go find something or someone that brings you joy and move more into that vibration!!

Peace, Love & Consciousness

Jodi
