So much busyness, distractions, numbing out, lists of gotta do, stressed out people and some on – what do you choose to think, feel and do to remain calm, centred, peaceful, loving and powerful?

Take a Front Row Seat to Creating Your Reality

 

Creating our reality from our Consciousness which is awareness which comes through our filters, beliefs, patterns, programs and perspectives.

Change a thought – Change a lot.

It’s time

Everything IS Energy – Everything IS an Illusion.

It’s time to Become YOU and leave the old stories behind so You can create new ones.

Today

Now

In the Moment – that is the Zero Point Field where there are Infinite Possibilities.

So why hang on to an outdated version.

There is Magic waiting and wanting to be created by YOU.

 

Much Love

Re-Birth

Re-Birth to More of YOU!!

 

‘There can be no re-birth without the dark night of the Soul, a total annihilation of all that you believed in and thought that you were.’

     –  Hazrat Inayat Khan

 

‘Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.’

     –  unknown

 

 

I’ve been laying low recently – diving deep into shedding more layers to get to the truth of me.  It’s been a re-birth process and now I can share some – as the joy and excitement are fully back!!

I am learning that it’s an incredible time in the cosmos for growth awareness, expansion, releasing and consciousness – in other words major up grades for some of us that are doing the internal work.

Not always fun – but always so worth it.

Maybe you have been slammed in life recently by a 2 by 4 as you didn’t notice the little nudge you were receiving and didn’t want to listen – it’s ok – just don’t stay in the victim mode – things can and will get better.

I know!!

My Soul put me in Mexico 18 months ago – where I knew no one and couldn’t speak the language and I was house sitting so couldn’t be ‘travelling’ on on the move aka run. 🙂

It also took away all my distractions – my kids were off in other countries travelling and I knew they were doing well, my dog transitioned right after coming down here – my kids always teased me about him being the 3rd and most favourite child – he didn’t talk back 🙂 – he left I knew to give me my freedom, and then my partner of 21/2 years had an affair that got twisted and toxic.  So on my own – I knew it was time to do the deep dive within.

www.jodiburke.com

Embrace the Loneliness so it has NO Power Over YOU!!

Yes it was hard, lonely and frustrating at times as there were tears, anger, pain but now I reflect back and everything lined up so well for me to keep doing the work – people that showed up with great tools to assist me like The Emotion Code, she is amazing at uncovering, Yoga Teacher Training in Sayulita, time in Cuba where I probably walked over 100 miles in less than a week and shoot about 2000 images and many other walks, Temezcals, Intuitive Guidance by a dear friend who is extremely gifted, Soul Retrieval from another gifted person, new friends and experiences and the willingness to dive deeper into my subconscious, my emotional pains – ones I never fully healed of an eating disorder. I did not give in or stopped living – I moved forward even when it was painful – there is nothing more painful than being discarded like you never mattered – sign of a narcissist.

It’s a trauma to the body, mind and Soul – it’s a form of Soul rape – that is how serious it is and there is no polite way to say it.

www.jodiburke.com

Don’t Keep Yourself Imprisoned – Set Yourself Free

This past little while there was deeper diving as I connected with a Soul Sistar just in time before I almost re-cconnected with my ex – we connected in time to help put some puzzle pieces together and make me aware of narcissistic relationship abuse – something I was trying to deny. A big shout out to her with love and gratitude.  She was the other women and also is healing from the same crap.

Why do I bring that up?

A couple of reasons – it’s way more dominant than people realize because many of them just fly under the radar yet leave deep wounds. Many hide behind health or spiritual lingo – so you think they have it together – it’s a big manipulative mask. It’s also in the energies right now for people to do healing – these types of relationships leave deep scars. The other women (or guy) usually is not the enemy once you get past some of the deep emotional wounding so you can see clearer.

If you or someone you know is in any type of abusive relationship – physical, mental, emotional or psychological its time to get out!

www.jodiburke.com

It’s OK to Let Go of the Junk – especially IF You’re NOT a Junk Collector

Not always easy but many of these people can’t and won’t change – when you gather the courage and strength to move on – your life will get better especially if you do the work so you don’t attract them in again and up your self worth.

Many are master manipulators so anyone can get easily charmed – if you suspect – chances are…….if you are experiencing cognitive dissonance….chances are…………..if you are being lied to, cheated on, manipulated, gas lighted……..chances are…..if you have conversations that run in circles yet with no clear answers….. chances are……..

You deserve much better.

You are worth it.

www.jodiburke.com

Don’t Let Your Past Dictate Who YOU Are

No one deserves the abuse that goes along with a narcissistic relationship – it’s the biggest mind fuck ever……literally.  These type of people are run by their false self ego and need energy sources as they are lifeless inside – wounded yet will never be able to heal.

My friend shared this great lady with much info, vids etc – I highly recommend checking her out for more info – Melanie Tonia Evans.com

I share all of this as my wish that even one person reading this will be helped as it’s beyond comprehendible what these people do – it’s Soul sucking and it’s usually pretty twisted – you just can’t make this shit up – yet it’s also devastating – mentally, emotionally, physiologically and financially  – for some quite serious.  As there is no substance to the relationship for them – you are just an energy supply so it’s all fake.

Hard one to accept – I know.

With the portals, cosmic energies, and the evolution of Souls, Consciousness and more – there is never a better time than now – to get out, heal and create a life you truly desire.

I can only share what I’ve gone through and it’s not always easy BUT ever so worth it.

www.jodiburke.com

Some Things Can NOT Be Fixed

From the shit show has come healing, more clarity and more of me has returned. I have dived into Consciousness, Quantum Physics, my joy has come back for Photography, my self worth has grown and so much more.

From shattered and low self worth to feeling confident again and changing directions so that my Soul and I are way more interconnected than ever before.

I can now stand in my self, with my Soul and with a stronger connected to Source and be grateful for it all.

www.jodiburke.com

BE & SEE the Beauty YOU Truly Are

I’ve been able to let go of things, businesses, people and old memories that no longer served me and created space for new things, people, experiences and creativity of a much higher vibration and  consciousness.

Remember – Actions speak louder than words – what people say and what they do have to be congruent – if not – get the hell out – you are worth much better.

That is the start of Self Love.

Find Things that Honours & Nurtures You & Your Soul

As the snake shed’s it skin and goes through a re-birth – this too has been a re-birth – if animals do it so can we!!

Create a new beginning  – it is Your Life – Live it well.

Life is a never ending learning, growing and remember who You really be – there is no finish line there is only loving and living well.

So excited now at what is coming up as I am working on a couple of Photo projects.

Hope you’ll check back and thank you for reading – please share if you know of anyone struggling in any sort of abusive relationship – that is not why you are here!!

Much Love

‘The true authenticity of photographs for me is that they usually manipulate and lie about what is in front of the camera, but never lie about the intentions behind the camera.’

     –  Wolfgang Tillmans

www.jodiburke.com

Life IS About What We Focus On

 

It’s not what is out there – it’s our perception of what is out there of what we think and feel therefore believe – yet that doesn’t make it true – it’s just a perception, possibly a limited one.

ALL aspects of our lives are determined by the quality of our Consciousness.

What is Consciousness?

Dictionary meaning – The state of being awake and aware of one’s surroundings. The awareness or perception of something by a person. The fact of awareness by the mind of itself and the world.

To be real, authentic and true – one has to follow their heart, their Soul and their guidance – which really is the same.  I have a deep love for both Photography and Consciousness & Quantum Physics – cause once you go down the rabbit hole, take the red pill – you can’t go back – and why would one want to as it’s so much more than imagined!! Yet at the same time I am realizing I know so little compared to what is out there and mostly what we have been told even taught in school are nothing but lies.

My blog will be sharing my Photos, inspiration and what Consciousness is……….the world needs more of it as it’s based in Love and this I love.

I hope you will share this or come back and visit often.

Much Gratitude

Whispers from Your Soul

Whispers from Your Soul

www.jodiburke.com

Whispers are Like Little Droplets

 

‘Intuition is the whisper of the Soul.’

     –  Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

Question – How would Source / God / Creator etc live it it was You??

We are Spiritual BEings having a HUman experience.

Source knowing that it is part of source energy – so really an energy of infinite possibilities – yet while living as an individuated expression of Source would go – holy crap – what do I truly desire to be as I have the power, clarity and love to be that. How much fun can I have? What are the endless possibilities? What do I love to do while in this human costume? What brings me Joy? How do I want to creatively express this version of myself – with easy, joy, fun, love and gratitude?

or

Playing a human yet having amnesia so forgetting that you are a Soul – the energy of Source / God /Creator and creating a reality that gets elected back through the feed back mechanisms of your 5 senses – which have little to no imagination, depend upon Ego which stays in struggle, lack, limitation possible anger, frustration and guilt.

The Whispers from your Soul are tugging at you to remember who You truly be!!

Infinite

Divinity

Eternal

so why not enjoy the time spent here – it’s all just a story anyways – so create an awesome one!!

Being in Nature Being fully Present in the Moment & Doing what YOU Love to Do

 

‘To be what I all a ‘quality’ human being, one has to be transparently real and have the courage to be what he is.’

–  Bruce Lee

“So long as human beings stay human, death and life are the same thing.”

     –  George Orwell

‘We are not human beings trying to be spiritual.  WE are spiritual beings trying to be human.’

     –  Jacquelyn Small

Animals Know how to Be and Be in the Present

Human BEings – Harmonic Universe – different levels of frequencies. “hu” which means “God” in Arabic, so HUman is really GodMan……….read that again!! 🙂

BEings – not DOings……..which does not mean you do not do, it means how do you do or how do you be?.

BEing is a state of consciousness. What state of consciousness would you like to embody by BEing it or living it?

So that when you do, you are doing it from a higher state of consciousness, from joy, from love, from pure pleasure and gratitude not because you have to or should or because someone wants you to.

That is when you do out of true alignment to who you be – real, authentic and true – in what you say, feel, think, speak and do.

www.jodiburke.com

YOU are Creating Your Life with Each Decision Each Moment

The more we do that the more we embrace our truth of a higher form of Consciousness and will remember the Powerful Creators that we truly be.  The rest are just stories – though they seem real – but it’s because we are giving them our attention.

We are really good at keeping ourselves busy while being human beings – because we have bought in to this reality being so real – the dramas, busyness to not feel, to keep ourselves small, keep separation within and with all etc

The best place to start to shift that is spend some time in quietness, meditation or nature – barefoot in the grass is so grounding plus it gets you out of the head and more into the heart – that is your truth!!

What energies are you being today? Are they truly aligned with you, your desires and your Soul?

It all starts with you – Mantra for today is I am divine Self Love.

Energy is Always Moving

 

If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.

     –  Nikola Tesla

 Everything IS Energy, and that is all there is to it.

Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality.  It can be no other way.  This is not philosophy this is physics.

     –  Albert Einstein

 

Just had to share this image – I was doing some Long Exposure Photography the other day and this is one of the images – nothing special but I thought interesting.

Now I know there was a man in front this time moving about getting his things off the boat and to ride off yet all the other boats looked still – yet the water was moving a little bit yet I didn’t think I would get the image back that blurry.  Made me stop and remind myself that everything is energy and even though it looks stable or solid when viewed under a microscope it’s still moving even though it may be dense. Nothing stands still even though it may appear so.

If I was to have taken this photo regularly I would have stopped everything and captured the moment where it froze in time for that split second – totally different with a long exposure.

Big reference to life as well that I will dive into in the next post.!

Energy is always moving – it can never be destroyed or created just transformed – something to think about – IF Everything IS Energy – that includes thoughts AND emotions………

Change a thought – change a lot.

Old Stories

Old Stories

Old Car in Cuba

“The real challenge for the individual is to practice evolution, to learn the lessons of the old stories so we no longer need to repeat them and to remind ourselves that the critical mass of humanity involved with this evolution will change the world from the inside out.”

 –  Dr Bruce Lipton

 

Just like old cars our old stories keep us stuck.  Time to tell a different story and move forward.

They are just stories – they may seem real especially if there is an emotional charge yet to move forward each day is new and you can create a new story.

Be open to seeing, learning an doing new things as you are not a car!! 🙂

Consciousness creates Matter.

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.”

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!!

The Truth Will Set You Free

When You are Living Your Truth there is Much More Flow

 

The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.

–  Gloria Steinen

We must unlearn what we have learned because a conditioned mind cannot comprehend the infinite.

–  unknown

Universe doesn’t speak English – it speaks in frequencies as in vibes.

The first step of change is to become aware of your own BS – belief systems or bull shit – same thing really 🙂

There are no others out there – whatever you see outside is your own reflection – your mind is creating all of this – it’s a movie and you are the lead role – is it a blockbuster or nightmare?

The Universe has shaken me to awaken me – I saw that quote and it was so fitting.  When shit happens we can either become victims or dive deep within to see what’s really going on and to clear the beliefs, patterns, programs so the real You can emerge.

It’s so worth it when you move through it – as the real You that has been covered up starts to emerge, that is the truth that will set you free!!

In the stillness is where we find ourselves.

We need to go within to find our truth, love and light.
