Time to Start Unpacking

Time to Start Unpacking

www.jodiburke.com

Unpacking Isn’t Always Fun but it is soooo Worth It!!!

 

In life

and living

the choice is always ours

to whether or not to leave our baggage as is

or to unpack it

The baggage represents all our past hurts,

regrets, deceptions, traumas and more

They are over

done

except by holding on to the story

the energies stay alive

and hold you back

in so many ways

They may have been true

and even real

yet only in that moment

It’s the attachment that keeps

those energies alive

Yes it may have hurt you

frustrated you

angered you

disempowered you

belittled you

or more

Yet, that is not you!!

You are love at your core

and are part of Creation

it’s when we can forgive

and let go

is where the truth lies

and true healing occurs

Not always easy

trust me I know

Yet that will truly set you free

Free to be

Free to love

Free to feel

Alive again

The gift in all of that is

To have more of you!!

There is never a better time

to start unpacking than in the now…….

My Eagle Story

Eagles

www.jodiburke.com

The Eagle

In the Eagle, there is all the wisdom of the world.

  –  Lame Deer

 

I would like to share this little story because of my friend Sandra.
The last few times we’ve spoken, she has mentioned several times every time someone comes into her reading room they comment on my eagle picture you’ve got to share it  she says.
By the way she’s an awesome reader – check her out.
 I got thinking okay I’ll share it as I have a fascination with Eagles and I’ve been blessed many times in my life with amazing encounters with eagles.
Even the story behind this image yet I will share this one.
When I was getting married, my mom, who had past away 6 months earlier, I asked her for a sign that she was with me when I got married.
It was a simple wedding with a couple of friends on the beach on Vancouver island.
I said mom, please give me a sign through the eagle during the wedding.
While we were  doing our vows there was an eagle way high up in the sky flying above us.
I said to my friend well  she came but I was hoping for something else something more to be honest. Yet I was happy.
She said Jodi, you can’t you can’t have expectations of how it’ll show, how she will show you, yet she did let you know.  I said I know, I guess I wanted more.  I was missing my mom to be honest.
Anyways, we went for dinner.
At dinner both my brother and I both had ordered rice with our meals and instead we  got mashed potatoes.  I asked the waiter for rice.  Sandra asked me if I didn’t like mashed potatoes, I replied with I love mashed potatoes but my mom had the best mashed potatoes.  She said really.  So I asked the kids who had the best mashed potatoes and both replied together – Grandma Eve (as they called her).
Sandra replied with well, that’s how it works  – your mom is letting you know she is here but not in the way you expected or wanted.
hmmmm ok I said okay fair enough I get it!
The next day comes and my  husband and I drive out to Tofino on the far West coast on Vancouver Island.
We were staying at a hotel at the far end of the beach from Tofino.
We pulled up to this  hotel as it was set back from the water but it’s where all the fishing boats anchored. The big fishing boats that go out to sea.
 As we pulled into the parking lot there was at least 50 Eagles sitting  in trees all around.
I want okay thanks Mom that is awesome but wait, it gets better !!
The next morning I get up and  make my coffee,  we’re staying in a condo style hotel  on the second floor.
I make my coffee and go to sit on the couch as it’s has a great view out the window.
Right off  to the side is as big tree  less than 30 feet from the balcony and sitting on a branch is an Eagle looking at me.
Whoa!!
We didn’t leave till about 10 or so that morning  and the eagle was still there.
We came back about 5 or so to get ready for dinner and  the eagle was still there.
We came back from dinner about 9 or so the eagle was still there.
Wow, ok thanks Mom!!!!
Of course the next day when I woke up,  the Eagle was gone, but I knew my mom was letting me know she was there.
There is no division between the seen and unseen except what we allow.
What stops us is our fears, points of views and programs.
As Everything is Energy and just vibrates at different speeds.
Me, yeah I’m still working on heightening my skills yet it’s possible for any of us.
The marriage didn’t last but the memory did!!
Thanks for reading!!

PS – I don’t share this to brag about the Eagles as to loved ones are still near us many times.

Shine Your Light Bright!

Under the light of the Moon

in the stillness of the dark

with the reflection of the light

is where there is solitude

and also a wondering

if I just sit, be still and gaze

at the bright Moon

I wonder

What is life really all about?

 sitting, pondering and staring

at the Moon’s bright light

I am reminded

to shine my light

bright

by being me,

the Moon is here

to remind us all

to shine our light

bright!!

The Calling of the Soul

The Calling of the Soul

www.jodiburke.com

Your Soul is Calling – can You hear it??

 

comes through in heartaches

in shutting down

in denial of one’s truth,

when the Soul whispers

to get one’s attention

we can answer that whisper

or choose to ignore it

discount it

push that longing down

with words and feelings of

one day I’ll do that or

there’s not enough time or

gotta make more money

and

by wearing many masks of who we aren’t,

yet the Soul

lives in the eternal

moment of now

and patiently waits

for one to respond

to the calling of their Soul

yet the more one is shut down

disconnected

or in denial

to the calling of their Soul,

the more the calling turns to a cry…….

so listen to the calling of your Soul

for it will guide you home

where true freedom lives

from your hearts desires

and if you choose to listen

those desires can turn

into fires

answer

the call

that is where

A Moment in Time in Nature

‘Nature always wears the colors of spirt.

  –  Ralph Waldo Emerson

A flower only knows how to be a flower.

It stands in it’s own beauty, is fully present in the moment, never judges, compares, or dims it light.

Spend some time in nature – it can teach us a lot!!

Enjoy the moment, enjoy the beauty!!

What IF………

What IF……..

Create, Play and Go Beyond!!

……..there really was Magic?

There can be, yet one has to be willing to look within, let go of programming, beliefs, triggers and points of view that limit you.

The yoUniverse is full of unlimited possibilities.

So why stay in limited possibilities?

That is where so called ‘magic’ is!!

After all – You are the Universe! 🙂

Whispers from Your Soul

 

The only storm to weather is the ones you have created in your mind from the programming, past you are still holding onto, points of views and beLIEfs especially about self.

The more you belong to the crowd and try and fit in, the deeper you fall into darkness.

You were not meant for conformity.

You are meant to fly.

You’ve just forgotten.

Let it all go.

It’s time to awaken, remember your truth, connect with your Soul and soar.

It’s time baby!!

Love Your Soul

Infinite Possibilities

Infinite Possibilities

www.jodiburke.com

Step into Your Truth that is Where the ‘Magic’ is!!

As an Infinite Being living in an illusion with Infinite Possibilities why choose anything less than love?

To truly connect with  your Soul – aka Pure Source Consciousness – you must become Love as the Soul only knows the vibration of Love – that is the truth of your being, at the core.

We just have forgotten that. oops 🙂

Therefore, the lower vibrations of fear, doubt, greed, judgments, programs, points of view, etc must go.

Everything IS Energy – we ARE the Perceivers, the Observers therefore the Creators of our REALity.

Aka – NOThing IS Real unless You give it your attention!

Perceive, Observe and Create from the Energy of Love – everything just IS.

The ILLusion is the wall of Separation, which creates distortion which keeps  You from being the Infinite YOU.

That is where Infinite Possibilities lie and also known as ‘magic’!!

Love, Joy, Bliss & Gratitude are Yours IF You Choose those Energies!!

Soul Awakening

Soul Awakening

www.jodiburke.com

Soul Awakening – Follow It

It’s been almost two years since the end of a narcissistic relationship and I can honestly say it was probably one of the best gifts ever given to me because it started me on the path of truly Awakening!!
When we truly aren’t on the right path, or going in the right direction or not paying attention our Soul will step in to really get our attention and that is usually through something that can be painful – so we either dig in to do the work to heal and wake up more or we go into victim mode.
I had to be honest with myself – I not been paying attention, gave my power away and my Soul stepped in and gave me a wake up call – that is what happens when we least expect it!!
I choose to do the work as I did not want to go through that again.
In the last 2 years I have dug deep within myself, healed old emotional wounds, aka lightened the toxic emotional baggage,  cleared old energies no longer needed in my life, forgiven many people who I perceived did something wrong,  released unhealthy ways of thinking and being, expanded and raised my awareness therefore consciousness!!
It truly was a gift in disguise for me.
It’s still an on going process!!
When I first started the healing process I was hurt, confused, and rattled I will be honest.  Yet I have been looked after and supported during this whole process of unraveling more of me and my truth and letting go of my untruths and many many programs. Plus I have some amazing friends who held space for me during some rough moments!! ( you know who you are!! :))
I took the opportunity to  really dive in and look at why I attracted this or better yet why I created it because we’re creating everything in our lives – nothing just happens or is outside of ourselves.
I had to dive in and look at the energies of that relationship, me and my truth as to  how it  ended and what came out of it.
Manipulation, deception and  cheating were the themes.
WTF  was I vibrating energetically?  Who was I really being? Where was I not being honest in my life and in myself? Who was I lying to? Who was I manipulating?
Lots of questions lead to lots of introspection as I was asleep to the truth of me!
And yes there were many amazing moments and growth in that relationship that I am also thank full for – it was how it came to an end that more was revealed!
 I realize that it was me to me by not choosing me, by not being me, by trying to fit in and be liked by everyone (seriously like wth eh?? :).  By wearing personas or masks of pretending everything was okay or I was this or that yet being so disconnected from within and that was the energy being played out in my reality.
When we choose to go within and do the work that’s when magic and miracles start happening!!  That is when awareness grows and therefore consciousness.  Yes it’s an on going daily thing.
It hasn’t always been easy in the last 2 years and I’ve reached plateaus, coasted for a while and then turned around and did more deep-diving as I call it.
It’s always always been worth it taking me to a new level one of more awareness, one of more calmness, more joy, more self love, forgiveness and even non-judgements.
And remembering – remembering more of who I am in this human exploration and what brings me true joy while being here.
That is the start and the journey of the Soul Awakening and remembering who one truly is and to choose you!  None of it comes from ego or programs being run.
We really are much more than the human we pretend to be!!
Self – Soul – Source – higher vibrations of pure Love.
The Soul speaks to you through the heart as it only knows Love – real, pure Love.
Trust your heart!
