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…….

Could It Be……

Could It Be……..

What path are You choosing?

 

 

It is not our truth or our path

to suffer,

We have just forgotten,

We are more powerful than we know,

and we can chose things that help ease the journey,

that allow us to live our passion

and grow,

To be our truth

and express who we be

Could it all just be an illusion?

If so,

what path are you choosing??

No choice is good or bad unless you think so!

Yet are You choosing for YOU??

Where is the Love

Where is the Love

Where IS the Love? Inside of YOU!!

Love is a vibration

Yet we are taught to go seeking Love

Outside of ourself,

The truth is beautiful one,

You are LOVE

Your job is to remember that

When you do – it will set you Free

Feel the Love

Breath it in

As anything less than Love are lies

Start with yourself

Be Love

Anything less than Love

has you locked into the deceptive illusion

of separation

Love IS your truth

BE it

Love IS the highest vibration of all.

Just BE the Love Vibe!!!

Let Go of the Lower Vibes so You Can Be Love.

 

What comes from the deepest part of me?

The things that long to connect with me to set me free.

Free of limitations, constructs, programs, old stories or anything else that denies me my truth, my being, my existence or my power.

When did I supress myself?

When I bought into the illusion so much so, that it seemed so real and I would fit in and not be seen.

Time to let that shit go.

We weren’t meant to fit in!

For me and for you!!

Old Mexican Buildings

Old Mexican Buildings

Part of an Old Garment Factory in Mexico

 

 

Just took a 5 day little trek to the ocean for some fun in the sun – ok the beach!!

On the way there we went to an old as in 200 yrs old garment factory that the front has been restored on and an open theatre has been created.

One of the Halls in the Factory

 

The rest of the building was a photographers dream – ok mine 🙂  I love old fallen down buildings especially brick and wood, this one had much character and history!.

Parts Still Standing After 200 yrs…….or is it?

Thru the Old Door

 

On the way back we stopped at a 150 year old hacienda.  I did not know that hacienda’s were sometimes 1000’s of acres big.

Both of these buildings were big.

Just Part of the Old Hacienda

 

 

Yet, it was a form of slavery until the revolution in the early 1900’s.  It got me to thinking about history – or is there as in the quantum world everything is now.  So why does history keep repeating itself or does it?

Since we are multi dimensional beings, is it that all timelines hold the same energies, just different eras or themes but similar.

The Second Building

 

As in slavery – this time line covers it up well yet it’s still slavery.

Just think about that for a moment.

I’m Curious of the Stories Here

Yet, we can start choosing differently.

We are more powerful than that!

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!!

Dance with Life

Dance with Life

Can You Hear the Music of Your Heart Beat?

 

I tried to dance with life

yet I forgot how,

see, through all the programming

dancing really isn’t allowed

Conform

Be Good

What will the neighbours think

I am told,

so now life has me waiting on the sidelines

hoping and anticipating

that maybe,

just maybe

I’ll dance again.

As a child

I danced all the time

to my own beat of my heart

until the music was turned way down,

fit in

don’t stand out

this is how it should be

I am told

yet

no one asked me

if it was aligned with my heart

so the music stopped

yet that is where I will find my music again

that only I can hear

and then

and only then

will I be able to dance again,

life has been calling me to dance

has it for you as well?

Then go dance and go within

so you too can hear the music

of your own heartbeat

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
