Being Present in Each Moment

Being Present – sounds easy doesn’t it?

It should be yet it’s not – I get tested every day – every moment – we all do.

It’s showing me how little I have been present many times in my life – the now is constantly changing and if we are thinking about the past and should haves and what ifs then we are not present.  If we are worried about the future, stressed about money or whats going to happen then we are not present.

Having a conversation with someone and thinking about your reply as they are speaking we are not present.

Surfing the internet while talking to a friend on the phone – we are not present.

I could go on! 🙂

I had an interesting interaction Sunday morning on the beach – fairly early yet not as early as I usually go – I had my camera on the tripod and I had it aimed at a big rock and some smaller rocks on the edge of the ocean – I was doing long exposure – so it wasn’t a quick point and shoot, but regardless my camera was set up.  Two ladies in their 20’s came along and climbed up the rock – I was about 20 ft away, and they  proceeded to stand on the rock and take selfies for about 10 mins.

Now I could have reacted, gotten pissed off, but I just observed.  I laughed watching it all to be honest and I also watched any judgments I had.  I could have let it ruin my moment, my day or my shoot – I chose none of the above. I am not a person who usually gets angry but I do get frustrated – didn’t choose that one either.

Being Present in each Moment

Conscious Living is about being more present in each and every moment no matter what you are doing or what is going on but it is also about knowing you are the creator of your life and you do have choice in each moment – how you respond or react.

Not always easy I know, yet the more we practice it the easier it will become and life can become more of a flow and more magical!

We all have stories, triggers, patterns and programs running – oh and much brain washing that has happened – by becoming more aware of them, healing, releasing, or clearing them we can become more conscious in our every day lives.

After all, isn’t it YOUR life?

Signs from the Universe

Signs from the Universe

Energy is Always Flowing

There are always signs from the Universe IF we are paying attention.

When we are greeted by a sign or synchronicity there is no longer the question – there is only the answer!

If we are energy – and we are – when we have put out a question to the Universe and do not come to conclusions with an answer, we are sending out a vibration and the Universe loves to support us, surprise us and over deliver.

It’s interesting the things we worry or fear about instead of knowing what we desire, setting clear intentions and moving in that directions without expectations and conclusions.

The flow of energy.

I have been struggling with some decisions lately in my life – it’s like I am at a fork in the road and it’s been draining and hard – because I have been trying to figure it out.  That in itself should tell me 🙂

But I started paying attention to signs and they were coming even in funny ways – how, when and where I least expected it!! 🙂

I chose the photo above as I just came back to Sayulita in Mexico – where I spent a couple of months earlier this year.  I walked down the beach yesterday to see these rocks and not only are the Inuk Shuks gone but so are many the rocks – if you have an urge in the moment – then Go For It as you never know what can happen after that.  As a Photographer a missed opportunity of creativity!!

Let go of thinking, come from the heart and follow what you love to do and be.

That is the only true way to live!

Create a fantastic day!!

What Are You Choosing??

What Are You Choosing??

www.jodiburke.com

Beach in Mexico

 

What are you choosing in your every day world?

Surrender lower vibrational forms of thinking that limitations are real, that you are not good enough, that you can’t see how.

We live in an infinite ocean of infinite possibilities and potential.

You are suppose to live, follow and love from your heart.  Believe in self.

Let the Universe know the how!

When we limit ourselves through our 5 senses to what is real or possible we have to remind ourselves that we do that through filters of lack, our beliefs, our points of view, programs, our perceptions and even our ego and that don’t always support us.

We forget that we are Consciousness that is One with the Source of all that is.

So by thinking and feeling I can’t, I’m not good enough, I don’t see etc then that is what the Universe responds to.

The Universe or otherwise known as the Field does not understand words or thoughts – it only understands vibrations which starts with a thought that leads to an emotion or feeling which creates a vibration.

The Universe always responds.

As you think, act and feel you will receive.

I am choosing Self Love, Love, Joy, Bliss, Gratitude, Passion, Health and Abundance.

What are you choosing?

How You Love Yourself

How You Love Yourself 

www.jodiburke.com

Self Love – Say YES to YOU!!!

How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you.

Everything you are living is reflected back to you from your every day world.

Everything IS Energy – Consciousness is always there, yet we tend to forget it.

The more Self Love one can give themselves and be – the more love comes back to you.

Imagine a world where everyone is in the Vibration of Love – very different from ego, narcissistic, survival and abuse.

Live Free – Live Wild with integrity and non-attachment even if it looks different, peaceful and empowered!!

It starts with YOU – how much Self Love do you live in each day?

Be in the Moment to See the Beauty in the Smallest of Things

It’s when we slow down, connect with our breathe, be fully present in the now

Be still

See the beauty in even the smallest of things

See

Feel

Be

Love

As Everything IS a reflection and an extension of YOU.

Your relationship with self, food and your body extends out into the world where everything and everyone is a feed back loop for what is truly going on inside of you.

It’s time to come back home to the truth of who you are.

Love

Unconditional Love

If it’s not Love it’s probably a story that you keep telling yourself

Isn’t it time to tell a new story?

You are beauty.

You are unique.

You are here for a reason.

Step into the truth of who you truly are and shine your light!

Much Love

Reset Time

It’s reset time!!

Holy crap I spent the last 5 days laying very low and near the bathroom…….Montezuma’s revenge – somethings only need to be experienced one in life lol  I so appreciate even more so how good I feel on an on going basis!!  Clean eating and living pays off big time.

I find it interesting I got hit with this as the Full moon was coming and a strong one before the eclipse and Mercury going retrograde.  It is Reset time are the powerful energies of now.

With the time of laying low gave me some time to think about much in my life – many awarenesses came up and allowed me to clear some old patterns and ways of being – it’s a very powerful time – if you choose it to be!!

Reset time allows one to start new, refreshed and to have clarity.

There are a lot of energetic shifts going on.

Best place to go is within  – no need to get sick to do so!! lol

Time to get clear on what you truly desire, how you want to show up in the world and how you want to live especially before Mercury retrograde.

Remember if Everything IS Energy – and it is – YOU are way more powerful than you’ve been lead to believe!!

Create a Magical Day

Heart Energy

Heart Energy

www.jodiburke.com

Love – Heart Energy

Heart Energy – coming from unconditional love from the heart.  Not easy in this world as we are taught that logical thinking is the most important thing, yet so many of us are shut down and cut off from our heart.

Our heart is the connection to our soul it is also the mediator between our lower 3 energy centres and the 3 higher energy centres.  In other words it is the bridge for manifesting from the spiritual or etheric world into the physical world.

Heart energy aka love is the only truth – unconditional love – starting with self and when that is pure and true it generates out to everyone and everything else as once the 5 senses are removed everything IS energy and everything IS one.

Things and people will constantly present us with things that trigger us  – how we react or respond to any of them is up to us.  If we are growing and evolving then we are looking, processing and taking responsibility for any and all triggers as everything is a reflection of our internal world and to come back to love – doesn’t mean you have to have that person or thing in your life – love them / it and the lesson and move on.

Nothing is true unless we give it our attention.

Shifts are happening big time – from the 3rd Dimension to the 4th – lots of changes and a lot of triggers are coming up for people – how you process is always of course up to you. The 4th dimension is where the heart truly opens, unity consciousness, forgiveness, abundance, and where Universal Laws are and working with energy more!!

Create an amazing day filled with Love!

Your Truth

Your Truth

www.jodiburke.com

Vancouver’s Science Center in Early Morning Fog – Are You Living in a Fog too?

You may or may not know your truth at a core level …..yet…….

‘We are Spiritual beings in a Human body suffering from amnesia’……..we truly forget who we are. We are living in the 3 dimension reality – that everyone adapts to that allows for duality and separation.

We have been enslaved in a system of false beliefs that don’t work for many of us – look around most people are sick, on auto pilot, judging, competing, self loathing, addictions are high or just extremely unhappy – where is the joy, bliss and love?

As long as our ‘ego mind leads and the heart is closed, the connection to our Soul is blocked most of the time.

The Soul of our being is our true essence.

We are not our bodies.

We are not our minds therefore our thoughts.

We are not our stories.

We are not our circumstances.

Yet look around and ask ‘How are we truly living?’

Our society praises the logical mind and looks at any of us that use or have strong intuition as ‘weird or different – being different and not fitting in here is not always easy.  Yet the whole system is based on fear and being plugged into the matrix.

The illusion of duality in the third dimension allows us to experience light and darkness, good and bad, joy and despair, better and worse. Actually the only choice we have: Love or fear. – in ALL that we think, feel or do.

As a Spiritual being – even with amnesia – the truth is  love – everything else is a big fat fucking lie.

Choose Love and start with Self!

Surviving vs Thriving

Do you want to survive or thrive in your life?

Each moment we have is a choice – we get to choose how we feel, what we think and how we live our lives.  So what is the difference?

www.jodiburke.com

Feeling Alone?

Survival

  • choose the path of least resistance

  • settle in life

  • become part of the herd mentality

  • you blame outside circumstances or other people for things going wrong in your life

  • working a job you hate for a pay check

  • lie, cheat, steal or manipulate as you are not connected to the Universal energy or trusting of it

  • afraid to speak your mind or stand out or up for what you believe in (don’t really know what that is either)

  • you don’t listen to hear you listen to answer

  • in your head a lot trying to figure it out

  • don’t trust – very concrete in the 3D reality

  • change is scary

  • its usually about me (you)

www.jodiburke.com

Thriving Creates Dreams

Thriving

  •  know oneself or on the path of knowing oneself therefore one’s values and beliefs too

  •  In more states of Love, Joy, Bliss & Gratitude for your life and what you are choosing in it   knowing you are creating it ALL

  • you surround yourself with people who are doing, being and living the same way – higher vibe people

  •  you take care of yourself mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually 

  • you don’t come from a place of judgement, competition or needing to manipulate anyone as Love is a stronger vibe in your world and you love yourself and everyone as equals

  •  you know or at least are on the path of knowing how the Universe works 

  •  you do things and spend time doing things that you love doing and bring you joy or to help  make a difference in the world

  • maybe even you are becoming aware of the Matrix and getting out of it!! 🙂

    If Everything IS Energy – YOU are a Creator NOT a Victim –  it’s never to late to start thriving!!

Receiving

Receiving

Be Open to Receive not Closed

Receiving – how well are you at receiving?

Gifts?

Compliments?

Money?

New ideas or ways of doing things?

When we aren’t able to receive it’s like having a closed door that we don’t or can’t open – we are literally being closed off.

 The other night I was given a personal compliment, which I noticed I could not fully receive – you know the under comfortable feeling in the body, the blowing it off or laughing it off and not being able to say thank you as you don’t believe it or can’t see or feel it.

Now, at the same time I also took notice that 2, 5 or 10 years ago I would not have been able to receive any or most of it – so I’ve come a long way!

I took note of it and sat with it the next day – asking myself some questions – What was in the way of me from totally receiving?  What’s right about me that I’m not getting?  How could this shift easily and effortlessly?

If I am not able to fully receive in one area of my life, then I can’t in others as well.  If I couldn’t receive fully then I wasn’t shining my light fully either – this is where beliefs and programs come in aka ‘I’m not good enough.’

I also realized that I can’t see or perceive what someone else can.  I assume that they see what I see,  but who knows really what another sees.

By not being able to receive compliments I am diminishing their light as well by not acknowledging their choice for whatever reason.

Being able to receive say a compliment should be no harder than to hear ‘Please pass the plate of veggies”.

Thank you is the best response to btw.

www.jodiburke.com

Let the Universe Surprise You!

When we can easily and effortlessly receive even the small things in life and be grateful for them the Universe will keep giving us more and will surprise us – if we get out of our heads of how things should be!

The more we can receive for ourselves as in compliments the more we can show up as we are not hiding behind programs and thoughts like ‘I’m not good enough’.

We gotta stop squashing each other’s lights and start sharing and spreading the light – being open to receive is a great place.

Thank you for reading and sharing this!

How are you on receiving?

What could you do differently today to receive more?

And a BIG Thank you for my friend showing me where I still needed to grow and become more aware!!

Law of Vibration

Law of Vibration – Just as a pebble can create vibrations that appear as ripples which travel outward in a body of water – your thoughts create vibrations and attracts similar vibrations (we are over 70% water btw) that manifest as circumstances and people in your life.

At any given moment you have a choice – it leads you closer to your spirit or further from it.

 

What are you choosing?

 

Embrace the discomfort or be enslaved by it -those are really the only two choices we have we when are activated!!

 

Believe it or not – but the knowledge you are looking for is already within your own consciousness waiting to be realized!!

 

Slow down, go into nature, breath, connect and fill the heart with love.

With Gratitude

Jodi

PS Don’t forget to laugh lots!! 🙂
