What is Your Soul

What is Your Soul

www.jodiburke.com

Many of us have been asleep!!

Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.

Who looks outside, dreams: who looks inside awakes.

  –  Carl Jung

Since I have started a series on Whispers from Your Soul – I thought I better do a post on Soul – and it ain’t no getting down and dancing or southern food 🙂

Our Soul is the immortal part of us.

The higher vibration of us.

Connecting with your soul is essentially discovering your true inner being.  With that, you are able to align with your purpose, do what you love to do and spend your time in the energy of joy and love.

Your soul is always there for you to connect with, you don’t need to reach a certain stage of enlightenment or spend hours meditating –  your soul is always there waiting to connect more.

www.jodiburke.com

We start Awakening with those whispers, urgings, promptings &heart opening feelings we get.

I share it like this – we are Consciousness – part of the One (Creator, Source, Divine, Infinite Awareness etc) that wanted to have an experience.  We as individuated vibrations of an unique frequency of the One came through to planet earth while putting on a human body suit, stepping through the veil of amnesia to the illusion of separation to have an experience in this game called life.

When we return as consciousness – what will matter the most of this experience here?

How much were you able to give and be love and therefore also be able to receive love.

www.jodiburke.com

Refuse to Self Abandon – Be You – Authentic, Curious, Real & Truth

To take off that veil and see through the illusion.

Kind of like Neo in the Matrix 🙂

We were not meant to live this experience in vibrations of stress, anger, judgments, fear, poverty or isolation.  Yes they are experiences yet not being chosen consciously, when one is not connected to their Soul.

Soul connection is living from your heart not your head.

Think, Feel, Speak, Eat, Touch all from Vibrations of Love, Joy, Bliss & Gratitude (aka Orgasmic Living & Being) – your Soul knows higher vibrations very well and the more we are in those vibrations, the easier it is to connect with, be guided by and communicate with your Soul.

Your Soul Knows!!

My Truth

www.jodiburke.com

You were Meant to Be You!!

 

 

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite.” —  

     –  William Blake

‘Find out who you are and be that person.  That’s what your Soul was put on this earth to be.  Find that truth, love that truth and everything else will come.”

     –  Ellen DeGeneres 

 

 

 

My Truth

 

I have been a health advocate for years – was into health products in my 20’s and eating healthy yet I also swung to the other end and had an eating disorder and of course in my 20’s worked int eh service industry so partied too much……..from one extreme to the other!!

I was doing green drinks more than 15 years ago, became a Raw Food Chef 10 years ago, into Superfoods for at least 7 years and I don’t say that to brag but to say I truly believe in eating ’real’ foods.  I also stopped my eating disorder from the physical side.

I have done, used, tried, learned about many alternative healing modalities and became a practitioner of some.  My kids got the benefits of me needing to practice on people – they were younger and loved it – mostly hot stone massage.

 

I share that as it’s truly been part of my life – ask anyone who knows me personally or spends time with me.

www.jodiburke.com

Eat Real Foods

A couple of years ago I started feeling like I needed to move beyond food as the focus – was promoting Superfoods and recipes etc  I knew there was more, Energy, The matrix, etc was calling me.  Since that time I dove into Human Design, Akashic Records (again), Emotion Code, Yoga, some Breath work, Karma Clearing, DNA Activation, Consciousness, The Matrix and more.

 

Got training thinking I would be doing some of those – so used to taking care of others, yet the more layers and healing I peeled back of myself more of the truth came clearer.

The more I learn about energy it’s incredible and fascinating

Even the energy of food – once you realize, learn or understand it you won’t eat much if any process chemical laden foods or foods from animals that have been abused – you just won’t!!

 

So why am I sharing all of this?

 

As you may know the past 18 months or so I’ve been doing much of my own healing and deep inner work – so much so that once I understood some of my programs, beliefs, perceptions I have had to eliminate people, foods, certain things from my life that were not in alignment – anyone or anything that does not stand in truth, integrity, love, honesty I’ve let go of or walked away.

I am grateful for the times we spent, things we did or happened and being showed what I don’t desire or who I am not.

 

Once you understand energy – Everything IS Energy and everything is a frequency and when you are doing the inner work things and people can become misaligned – we try to hang on yet there is no resonance now.

 

As in being the health / superfoods promoter – I will always share as it’s my lifestyle easily but it’s not my focus or my truth as why I am here.

 

Peeling off the personas and masks down to the truth – my truth – the truth of who I am  – those are the whispers from our soul – if we choose to hear or listen.

 

Yet the head, ego or buying into someone else’s limiting beliefs that you can’t do that or you won’t make money or blah blah blah keeps one stuck or not moving in the direction of their dreams, their truth, that was the case for me.

No one else knows your truth but you and unfortunately many of us decided to have amnesia or put on masks.

 

It’s time to take it off.  The energy of the earth is shifting to help each of us – who are willing to do the inner work and remember – it is time and safe to step into our truth and the world needs you!

There IS Always Beauty to be Seen

Even since I was a young teenager I wanted to be a Photographer.  I even went to school for that and was going to head off to the big city to do it.  Just one winter in Banff to ski first once I finished school then I would go.  Then it became –  well ok maybe next year  and next year never came.

 

Now I did work at the Banff Center as the assistant Photographer and did do my first show in Banff yet I always found an excuse to put my camera down as I bought into programs and didn’t feel like I was good enough.

 

Big Fat Fucking Lies

 

Finally, I have taken off the mask and am ready to step forward and claim myself as an Art Photographer – so much so that I am putting it out here.  I even potentially have booked my first show for later this year.

Because I am changing so is my Photography – it will be heading in a new direction – more focus, creative, artistic and different – can’t wait to share.

 

I already have several projects and collaborations to work on and I am feeling the excitement and exhilaration of it all.

 

So, I ask you – are you living your truth?

 

If time and money were not an issue what would you truly be doing? How would you spend your time? Who would you be?  It’s that thing you love doing and if you never made a penny doing it you would still do it.

 

It’s not too late.

 

We are energetic beings – we are energy which is electrical, which creates a current which translate into currency.

 

Many of us have been programmed that we have to work hard, or at jobs we don’t like or……..for currency.

 

Its time for a radical shift – the energy is supporting us all who want to step into our truth!!

 

I hope you do!!

Respond to every call that excites your Soul / Spirit – ignore the ones that make you fearful, doubt or feel not good enough.

Your Soul is always going to whisper YOUR Truth back to you, Your Soul wants what is best for you, and if you try to silence it’s voice, eventually that whisper will turn become a roar!!

What’s in your Heart and Soul must find a way out for you to live your Truth and from Love.

Everything else is just a BFFL and distractor!! 🙂

Be YOU Today!!

Things that Keep us Locked Up

IN this game called life we have been fed many lies, for instance that our genes play a role in disease, weight etc but in fact they only play 1% of that role – the rest is environment.  In other words our genes adapt.  They are liquid crystals – anyone who loves crystals knows the properties of them – so in our bodies our genes our liquid crystals – totally programmable – so what are you programming them with??  They also affect our DNA – can’t wait to share more on that – mind blowing but fun!

 

Chemicals from foods and vaccines? Negative or low vibing emotions like stress, dread, judgments (of self and others) or fear etc, drugs,tv and news, little to no body movement, little to no connection with nature or sunshine…………I could go on

or

www.jodiburke.com

Do Yoga or some kind of Body Movement – Photo Credit Sandra Wagman

Eating real foods – that aren’t processed or full of chemicals, use more natural forms of healing like homeopathy, herbs, essential oils etc, live in emotions of much Gratitude, Love, Joy and Bliss as you are truly on your path and connected with your Soul and Source, walk, do Yoga or hike, bike etc, spend time in nature either walking, hiking or growing a garden as some examples and walk barefoot in nature – one of the best ways to ground ourselves – at least an hour – my excuse for walking the beach when I am near one!! 🙂

When we go back to the basics in all areas of our lives and spend some time breathing, quieting the mind or meditating (so little to no tv) laughing lots, hugging loved ones and having such an attitude of Gratitude for all in your life – we actually do bring in more light – it’s the truth of who we are.

We did not come down here to get hard lessons – we came down here to each remember who we are and to truly step into our own divinity and creatively express who we truly be at a Soul level – and play like it was recess most of the time……..seriously…….who wrote the rules telling us it had to be hard, stressed, enslaved, full of chemicals so that when you could retire then you could have fun???

BS

www.jodiburke.com

You Aren’t Here to BE Like Everyone Else

Honour Life and it will honour you with more life – that is keeping things real – food, thoughts (anything not coming from Love is a BFFL) emotions (same as thoughts) and living your truth – that is how you can shine more light into the world.

Your Heart and Soul are the truth – are you able to hear them? Are you ready to step into the Light – your Light?

www.jodiburke.com

BE YOU – No Matter How it Looks to Others!!

If you are stressed, lost, confused, angry, not feeling well or healthy, or doing what you need to to pay the bills ( trust me I know all of these) then you have lost the connection………it’s never too late or too hard to re-connect!!

YOU deserve it – after all it is YOUR life!!

Much Love and Gratitde

Raw, Naked and Beautiful – Real, Radiant and Truth

I was born many times before,

And yet my time with you is something new.

For you awaken in me a spirit

that was longing to be alive

waiting for your connection.

I thought I knew how to play safe and stay within the boundaries

Only to realize that was not so.

That truly was not what real loving and living were about.

Yet you were there all the time for me

even when I hated, judged and criticized.

Reunited and together

we walked and broke down

the illusionary walls of separation

after I whispered to my body softly

‘I want to be your lover, your friend’

to which my body replied after a long deep sigh

‘I have been waiting my whole life for this moment’.

Love yourself and your body like you do another.

Emotional Abuse

Emotional Abuse

www.jodiburke.com

How is Your Self Talk?

 

When someone is putting you down, leaves you feeling like you can’t do anything right, makes you feel worthless or bad about yourself, doubting yourself or who you are being – just know you’ve done nothing wrong.

Know that that isn’t love – it’s emotional abuse.

Whether from someone or even yourself.

Don’t buy into the bull shit.

Self talk and Self Love are taking your life and living to a higher vibrational way of living and being!

Coming Out

I would like to share with you what Coming Out means for me!

I’ve been in a lot of ‘quietness’ lately after finishing up a 5 month house sit.  One of the joys being in Mexico and having 2 sweet little fur babies to look after – helped with the transition of my dog Spirit passing.  Dogs are such a joy.  Yet I have been enjoying some freedom of no schedule 🙂 oh and the beach since I am back in Sayulita – love it her!!

Also it’s been the rainy season so wetter, damper and different – taking all in.

It’s been a very interesting, revealing, expanding, healing deep inner work this year for me.  I am so grateful for the lessons, challenges, healing, learning and where I am at – well almost 🙂

I’ve been sitting with a few decisions in my life, reflecting, clearing, staying in the question, quiet time on the beach and walking through the jungle and doing much more photography!

I also have been working on a few Photo competitions and Grants to take my project out stronger.

After learning some things that have happened recently in our world then seeing all the #metoo on Facebook – I knew at an even deeper level that the project I started last year (and got put on the back burner) needs to go forward.

It’s not about sexual abuse or harassment – yet it still is a form of abuse – one to ourself though.  When and where does it start? Could have a tie in???

I created a program that has been beta tested and is starting to take off – 21 Days Food & You – Stop the Insanity for anyone that struggles with Emotional Eating, Low Self Esteem or Body / Food Issues.  Every day for 21 days you get an email with a tool to use to start creating change in your life and being.  They work – I know – I’ve used them and helped myself heal from an eating disorder, low self esteem and body issues.

My Photo project will be moving forward too even stronger – I am working on the details there!!

I feel in my heart it’s time for things to change in this world, women to step back into their power and know their worth and see their beauty and uniqueness – we can do that for ourselves, our children, men and the planet.

We can be Powerful yet Gentle, Beautiful, Soft and Loving at the same time especially with ourselves.

I look forward to this journey and sharing what I submitted as a Proposal – it will be the first time truly coming out of the closet yet with 91% of women dissatisfied with their bodies and more……..the timing is perfect!

Have a great day!!

Thank you for stopping by

Live What YOU Love

Tristan – an Amazing Yogi & Being!!

Isn’t it time for ALL of us to truly Live What YOU Love?

I mean with all the chaos and dysfunction whether with people or the weather – it’s become clear to me that there is too much low vibing energy going on.

Stressed out people working pay check to pay check, too much chemical laden junk labelled ‘food’, too many scams, depression, pharmaceuticals and I could go on.

Is this really how we are or were meant to live life?

Judgments on what labels one is wearing, who’s the latest gossip talk about, our bodies aren’t the right size, shape or height and so on.

Maybe we need to start looking at things differently?

Everything we need to be happy and live a life on purpose is inside of us, we just need to slow down or stop, go within and remember who we are!

Not always easy in a society that promotes do do do and buy buy buy.

Yes if you look around one can see clearly it’s not working so well!!

There are a lot of energetic shifts going on and even I am still getting clearer and clearer and having moments of being in the crap.

It’s time to come from our hearts, not our heads. Follow our passions, joy and bliss.

Easy, Pure, Real

I do know that I love what I share on my blog – it’s all part of my life – I like to keep things simple, pure and clean – from what I eat, to what I put on my body and in my mind.  My Soul loves sunshine, fresh air, quietness and nature whether that is the rainforest, mountains or beach – beach whenever possible though!

No, I am far from perfect, but when I can I do it as often as possible.

Shoe Shiner in Mexico

Living in Mexico for the last while has shown and taught me much.  Many of these people live on a fraction of what we do in North America yet they are always friendly, smiling and appear to be happy.

To me being happy, conscious and love what I am doing is important – after all isn’t everything energy??

When was the last time you did something that you truly love to do or followed your joy?

I had a Massage / Energy work last Friday while listening to the waves of the ocean, the birds and felt the breeze on my skin – it was one of the best sessions I’ve ever had!

Self Limiting Beliefs

Self Limiting Beliefs

www.jodiburke.com

Are you held back by Self Limiting beliefs?

When someone tells you it can’t be done – it’s more a reflection of  THEIR limitations NOT yours!!

                                              – unknown

 

 

Do you have any self limiting beliefs?

Most of us do!

The worst of all beliefs are Self-Limiting Beliefs.  If you believe you are limited in some way, whether it’s true or not, it becomes true for you!

If you believe it, you will act accordingly to embody that limited way of thinking and being.

Overcoming self limiting beliefs and self imposed limitations is often the biggest obstacle in your way.

Becoming your biggest cheerleader is the best gift of self love and not done from ego yet from a deeper sense of knowing self, who you truly be, loving self no matter what, living a life that brings you joy and that you love.

After all Love is the only truth.

You are responsible for the energy you release into the world – become the best YOU you can be!!
