Time to Come Back to Self Love

 

It’s not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it’s what you whisper to yourself that has the most power.

Challenge your Self Limiting Beliefs, as you will find, most of them are not true.

I want to share some things on programming after the last post.

Self Programming that is and from a different perspective in upcoming posts!

People asked me if the last post was a photo of me and yes it was.

I didn’t post the picture of me in the last one out of vanity or look at me look at me type of energy just to be clear.  I’ve started a series of Whispers from Your Soul which is going to be fun, inspirational, loving, supportive and planning seeds of awakening to your truth.

The other reason I am posting images like that is to start sharing some my journey, struggles and over coming them back to more of me, the truth of me, the real authentic me.

For years I’ve struggled with body issues, self judgements & criticism, hatred against myself and my body –  the posting of that picture represented A lot of inner work that I’ve done to reverse the distorted programming I had allowed in and created that kept me in separation especially from myself!!!

Free is in Love

When we choose to install distorted programming about ourselves and our bodies that keep us living in fear, rejection, judgements, criticisms, not feeling good enough etc there are little to no vibrations of love.

That is NOT the truth of who you are!!!

The truth of our existence and of our BEingness of our soul, is that it only knows the higher vibrations of love and anything less is distorted programming!!

Distorted programming creates separation within ourselves therefore also gets projected outside of ourselves – ego, judgments, narcissistic behaviour, self abuse etc.

Two years ago I would never have a posted a photo like that and like I said it’s not about look at me look at me it’s about  I’ve come a long way so if you’re reading this and struggling know that you too can do it!!  You just need better programming and more Self Love as that is the basis of it all.

Love YOURSELF!!!

It’s so friggin Freeing!

Much Love

No 2 Bodies are the Same – Choose Love as in Self Love / Body Love!!

 

Your body hears everything your mind says.

     –  Naiomi Judd

Being sexy is all about attitude, not body type.  It’s a state of mind.

     –  Amisha Patel

Embrace and Love your body – it’s the most amazing thing you’ll ever own!

Don’t let your mind bully your body!!

Life is way too short to spend it fighting with your body or yourself!!

 

Mind – Body – Soul

Be in the Vibe of Love – it starts with Self Love

 

If one stops to think about it – everything we do we do for our bodies – or mostly anyways.  We eat to feed our bodies – our bodies are real – are you feeding it real foods?  We work to house our bodies – provide a home and warm bed to sleep in.  We buy cars or ride bikes to get our bodies from place to place or to work.  We dress our bodies in clothes to go to work or outside – depending on the weather and in our society we need to cover up :).  We exercise to move our bodies.

Are you doing any of those for your Soul? Probably not, but for the body.  Yet we are not our bodies.

How do you talk to your body? Kind loving words? or Judgement and criticism?  Do you put clothes on your body that it likes and what feels good or what you thin it should wear?  Do you starve your body? Over eat? Over drink? Never let it have some fun?  Do you spend most of your time pissed off at it, wanting to change it or love it as it is?

I’ve been there – I know and once I let go and crossed over it all became much easier and clearer

Just some things to think about!!

No 2 Bodies are the Same – Love Yours No Matter What!!

Real Bodies are fat, and thin, and both and neither and otherwise.

There is no wrong way to have a body!

     –  Glenn Maria

You were born to be real not perfect!

Cuz You’re amazing just the way you are!!

 

The problem isn’t with your body – it’s what you think of it and what you think of yourself – true self love is thinking love, feeling love, being love and eating love………not fear, judgment, hatred, criticism, jealousy, processed food (and emotions) or abuse of any kind.

 

NO two bodies are the same!!

 

www.jodiburke.com

Choose Body Love!

 

This is a body hate free zone – remember – there is no perfect body only marketing and advertising that reminds you that you’re not good enough and then the self programming loop you keep running in your mind.  It’s time to tell it to f*&^ off – we have approximately 75 000 thoughts a day – most of which were the same that you thought yesterday, last week and probably last year.

It’s a program – delete it and reinstall one of self love and body love!!

The body is the only place your Soul has to live – so take care of it. Raw, Naked and Beautiful – Real, Authentic and Truth.

Eat Real

Live Well

Love Deeply

Laugh Often

Never Give up on Your Dreams

Remember – there is nothing wrong with your body but there is a lot wrong with the messages that try and convince you otherwise.

You Body Hears it All

Everybody has a part of her body that she doesn’t like, but I’ve stopped complaining about mine because I don’t want to critique nature’s handiwork… My job is simply to allow the light to shine out of the masterpiece.

~ Alfre Woodard

 

If Everything IS Energy and it is – your body is the place the Soul calls home – it hears every word you speak and every thought you think – you will have this body the rest of your life – why make it a battle ground – why not love it the way it is??

 

Are you letting your light shine or hiding in the darkness – by darkness I mean self judgments, criticism, lies about not being good enough, think enough etc……….

 

We are all like Snowflakes – each one is different, unique and beautiful – why try to be like someone else – that is not why we are here!!

Remember who you are!!

Living Beyond Bondage

Living Beyond Bondage

www.jodiburke.com

Emotional Eating is Self Imposed Abuse, Restriction, Trapment

Living Beyond Bondage came about for a Grant Proposal for Photography but mostly  for my 21 Days Food & You – Stop the Insanity Program AND the Raw, Naked and Beautiful Project.  Anyone who suffers from Emotional Eating will understand this and also benefit from the program hugely.  I will be sharing more on this as well in upcoming posts.

 

– Living Beyond Bondage –

We were all born pure, innocent and full of love.

Somewhere along the line the story got distorted.

www.jodiburke.com

All the Negative, Limited Loathing Self Talk

The drug of choice for many, especially women, is food.

Along with that drug often comes constant self criticizing, loathing, judging and obsessing about what one ate, didn’t eat, body size, shape and imperfections – no matter how small they may seem, it always gets distorted.

Yes, media, advertising, possibly parents, teachers, friends or siblings may play a role in somehow reminding us that we aren’t good enough the way we are IF we buy into it and believe it.

www.jodiburke.com

The start of De-Programming the mental Self Talk

It’s a disorder gone rampant, with over 91% of women disliking their bodies and themselves, many to an extreme. 80% of 13 yr old Canadian girls have been on a diet already and 95% of people with an eating disorder are between the ages of 12 – 25 yrs.

I know – I’ve been one of them.

www.jodiburke.com

Self Talk is Better – There is NOW Awareness of the Self Abuse Programming

The mental, emotional and often times physical bondage is excruciating – yet many hide it well from others.  The wires around the head represent the mental constructs of the programs, self talk and beliefs – none of which are self loving.

Stuffing down emotions, or better yet, not feeling them at all.

We often feel alone, fragmented and on our own keeping things bottled up inside.

We are caught in a vicious cycle of self depreciating, devaluing, loathing and often times self abusive – until we decide enough!!

www.jodiburke.com

Starting to Truly See the Lies We’ve Been Telling Ourselves!!!

Only 5 % of women naturally have the body type portrayed by women in the media and for which the other 91% are trying to compete, yet we continue to strive for something that truly is not the ‘norm.’

We aren’t good enough the way we are is the constant reminder.

The other 4% don’t have tv, internet or magazines and therefore  really, they are the free ones.

If we’re going to buy into stories, why not buy into self empowering ones?

Who truly decided what beauty is?

www.jodiburke.com

Waking Up to the Truth of Who You Are (Who I AM!!)

We all have a story to tell – we’re trying to make it a similar to one another and that is the start of the disconnect.

We are born and should be able to be our authentic selves and creatively express who we truly be through our gifts – not by trying to be like one another.

With the start of the disconnect we compare, judge, shut down and buy into someone else’s ideas of beauty and what we should look like and we start our own mantra of not being good enough.

Yet we are like snowflakes – each individually designed, beautiful and unique.

Some of us, remembering that, have broken free from that bondage – most of it being self imposed and mental self talk.

We decided that our lives weren’t about fighting our bodies, hating our bodies or ourselves or spending 95% of our time worrying about a few pounds or what we did / did not eat.

Cause it’s really not about food.

There were too many other beautiful, amazing things to see, feel, be and do in this lifetime.

That is the start of removing the bondage – you allow yourself to feel – ALL and reprogram the self talk.

The one thing that separates a food / body obsessive addiction is you have to learn to live with both, unlike most other addictions.

When one can truly do that – accept and love what is – then the bondage is gone and nothing is more freeing than that.

I know I am one of them!

Love Your Body!!

A little body love today!!

You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.”

Karen Quan

“By choosing healthy over skinny you are choosing self-love over self-judgment. You are beautiful!”
Steve Maraboli

“Beauty shouldn’t be about changing yourself to achieve an ideal or be more socially acceptable. Real beauty, the interesting, truly pleasing kind, is about honoring the beauty within you and without you. It’s about knowing that someone else’s definition of pretty has no hold over you.”

Nude Yoga on the Beach

 

I no longer look for the good in people, I search for the real……..

because good is often dressed in fake clothing, real is naked and proud no matter what the scars!!

                                                                    – Chishala Lishomwa

Nude Yoga on the beach is fun and freeing!

Clothing is over rated sometimes!!  Some of the best ‘real’ conversations I have had have been on the beach – nude beach that is – it seems the masks do come off 🙂 besides the clothing!

I am beginning to dislike small talk – I want to talk about life, death, sex, magic, consciousness, the universe, what makes your heart sing, the meaning of life, how to bend energy, unplugging from the matrix, what keeps you up at night, what makes you jump out of bed with a skip in your step, your insecurities, your fears, your loves, your battles, your triumphs…….I want real conversations with depth, meaning, passion, juiciness and aliveness.

What’s up or how you doing just doesn’t cut it anymore!!

How about you?

Our ‘Reality’ is not as real as you may think!

I am also pretty sure that the title Raw, Naked and Beautiful could have some pretty interesting thoughts or images dancing around one’s head 🙂

I took on and named this project almost 2 years ago – it’s been in my thoughts constantly yet I struggled with a few things – with the direction and within me – now much more is becoming clear and it’s truly the time to move forward with this!!

Raw, Naked and Beautiful stands for Real, Authentic and Truth – and I may, actually I hope 🙂 as the deeper I dig, I realize how little I know or understand about the real energetics of living and being yet my journey and inquestable thirst for truth (ahh being a true Sagg) I would love to share what I am finding as our ‘reality’ that seems so real is not what you nor I think or have been taught it is!!

Our so called ‘ reality’ is such a man made construct based on anything but truth,  We are multi dimensional beings that view and live life through our 5 senses which is extremely limiting as we cannot keep up with how much information is in our awareness or fields each moment therefore we have beliefs, programs, patterns, judgments, points of views etc that everything gets censored through – kind of like that telephone line game as a kid – remember how distorted the information was by the time it hit the last person – no where near how it started out usually.  Funny in the game but not always funny in the game called life!

www.jodiburke.com

Real Foods – what the body needs!!

Raw is about real – real foods, real emotions, real conversations, real ways of living and being.  Where can we be more real in our lives?  I will dive more into all of this in upcoming posts!!  We are turning more into who we are and living from the heart more not the head. (psss – there will be a little gift coming out soon so check back in shortly)

www.jodiburke.com

Raw, Naked and Beautiful Project

Naked is about being Authentic – whether that is having your photo taken in the nude, semi nude or not it’s who are you truly and how do you want to be seen being the real you!?  And speaking of naked – what is wrong with the human body, your body? Do you love it? or not?  It’s time to let go of negative self talk, self abuse and another twisted thoughts about nudity being pornographic etc  Our bodies are the place our Souls call home – love it and a big part of that is being the real you! I will share my journey of my relationship with food, my body and self and why now this is my mission.  Some major deprogramming for some of us for sure!!

www.jodiburke.com

Celebrate YOUR Awesomeness!!

Beautiful is about Truth – the truth of who we are!  I so love using the snowflake analogy as it seems to work – we are each like a beautiful,unique snowflake that when we come together we all play an unique role but when looked t separately we look different, are unique and beautiful – so why try and be like anyone else!!?? Loe your unique, quirky, beautiful awesomeness!!! 🙂

We all came into this world pure, innocent and full of love – somewhere along the line the story got distorted.

The journeys to come home, back to self, back to love.

When we leave planetEarth we may be asked of our time here – how much were you able to love and how much were you able to receive love………

So I leave you with this question – where in your life can you be more, raw, naked and beautiful??

Eat Real

Live Authentically

Love Yourself

Laugh Often

Be Awesome!!!

Here are a few examples  – judgment vs non-judgment or anyone or anything, ease vs struggle, love & self love vs hatred and self hatred, happy vs sad and so on.  It’s ok to move thru different emotions s that is part of the human experience down here but to stay in a lower state for extended periods of time is not real living or being as each decision we make – even how we feel is based on coming from love or fear.

Step Away from the Mean Voice

Step Away from the Mean Voice…

Let Go of the Old Ways of Thinking & Being!!

…and say bye-bye to feeling bad about your looks.

Are you ready to stop buying into the the programming, the lies, the judgments making us feel not physically adequate or good enough?

Are you ready to say good-bye to your inner critic, that inner voice, that self bondage that limits you and keeps you small and take the pledge to be kinder yourself?

This is a call – a call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous and to be self loving.

Transitioning from the Old Ways!! Photo – Sandra Wagman

It’s time to surrender to what is.

Waving the flag and surrounding – red symbolizes love – self love.

Are you ready?

Are you ready to look in the mirror and love all that is without judgment and criticism?

That is the first step in transforming your experience with yourself, your body and your life!!

Much Love

Fall Leaves

I am back in Canada and last week had time with a couple of friends to capture some of the beauty of fall colors and also some images of ourselves in the fall beauty and  pushing the boundaries.

Since starting to share my project Raw, Naked and Beautiful – people have been sending me messages of inspiration and also wanting to participate somehow – I see a road trip coming up in 2018!!

And I see much more energy focused in that direction – it is yelling at me that it is needed and wanted.

It has been fun seeing some beautiful spots of the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia and also seeing some of the many trails I spent walking with my dog Spirit – who passed last December – this is the first time I am really back in this area.  I have felt like I’ve been chasing the light – tall cedars, fall, coolness and beautiful colors – much fun!.

After our first day of shooting – staying with my friend we uploaded some of the photos and started looking at them – it’s interesting – (good choice of words eh?) looking at photos of yourself, semi nude and nude.

Seeing what comes up.

Surrendering to what is has become the new theme – waving the red flag – symbolizing love especially love of self and our body.

www.jodiburke.com

Waving the Flag – Photo by Sandra Wagman

We truly do have that choice each day, each moment in all that we think and do – starting with ourselves.

It’s truly breaking free from the self imposed bondage and limitations of me.

It’s been an interesting trip back to Canada – grateful I am here but can’t wait to get back to the warm sun!
