A Different Perspective

A Different Perspective

www.jodiburke.com

Do you view things, people, situations from different perspectives or no?

Good and Bad are just different perspectives.  The truth is nothing.

     –  Bhavesh Chhatbar

Remember, perspective can cause 2 people to look at the same thing and see 2 totally different things.

     –  Gail Lynne Goodwin

Sometimes the only reason for us to be somewhere else is to see things from a different perspective!

     –  Leila Summers

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.

Ana – One of the Yogi’s from Why We do Yoga book

I was in Yoga class yesterday with the awesome Ana from the Drishti Centre in Mexico and she used the analogy of comparing Photography with Yoga – interesting concept.

Lets take a different perspective even outside the class in every day life and situations.

 

If for example, on my camera I only use a 50mm lens – then I tend to miss out on much.  I either need possibly a macro lens for close ups to really get a better picture of what I am seeing or a telephoto so I can get like a bird’s eye view of things and no so much detail.

www.jodiburke.com

Street in New Orleans

Purposely for a few years I went and got several Prime lenses – 35mm (wide angle) 50mm (every day) and an 85mm lens (good for portraits) – I still had my telephoto lenses but I focused on using these as if I wanted to really see or get a different photo aka perspective I had to move around – I had to be willing to be flexible and try and see things differently.

www.jodiburke.com

Close up – Different Perspective

Yes one can stand there with their zoom lens and zoom in and out but they don’t have to move their body so it’s not as effective as truly looking with your eyes and moving around to get different views.

Since travelling I use one lens – yet since using Primes a few years ago I move my body still to get different angels, different lighting and I have even laid down to get a shot or climbed a tree – I am willing to be flexible.

www.jodiburke.com

Close up Perspective

In Yoga classes – I can go to 4 classes of Ana’s a week and I never get the same class – sometimes Yin with Yang mixed in, sometimes Hatha, even Vinyasa – and it all helps me to be present in the moment, surrender and be open and they are always awesome classes – sometimes easy and other times kick ass!

www.jodiburke.com

Wider Perspective Can be Good

What is your perspective on things – could it be more open? Flexible? Not only in life yet also with Yoga – don’t come to conclusions or judgments – life flows better that way!!

Reality

What are You Imagining in Your Mind’s Eye?

 

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

      – Albert Einstein

 

Read that again!!

 

Our reality is nothing but an illusion. Talk about a mind f*@&……….but it’s true. Nassim Haramein has proven that our so called ‘reality’ is nothing but a feed back loop for our thoughts – in other words our reality is an illusion based on our thoughts, beliefs, patterns and feelings. In other words it reflects back to us what is truly inside of us – as above so below, as within so without.

 

Makes you want to rise up doesn’t it – what we are thinking and feeling and any patterns / habits we have going on in our life.  Do they support us or not?

 

WhatEver you have going on in your world you are creating it.

 

Yup – makes one take responsibility FOR EVERYTHING.

 

Something our society isn’t good at doing.

 

Again – our reality is an illusion.

 

The illusion is not the problem.

 

It only becomes the problem when we think that this is the only reality.

www.jodiburke.com

We Cannot Solve our Problems with the Same Thinking that Created Them!

 

A great quote from Abraham Hicks is – ‘Nothing is real unless you give it your attention’.

Energy flows where attention flows – where are you focusing your energy?

It’s useful to experience certain things.

 

There is a great reality beyond this reality – wouldn’t it be cool if we could remember that?

www.jodiburke.com

Open the Doors to Your Imagination – it Opens You up to Other Possibilities!!

 

The more we connect with our Soul – we can remember it’s true.

 

So the more you create your reality to how you would like it to be, no not according to what you think you should because you saw it a Facebook ad or because the sheeple say it or one of the social media sites or a tv ‘reality’ show – it’s what you truly desire that from your heart!!

 

Without you being you the Universe is incomplete……..especially yours!!

 

Know who you are at a Soul level!!

 

Much Love

Whispers From Your Soul

Whispers From Your Soul

www.jodiburke.com

Whispers from the Soul is Being Whole

 

Intuition is the whispers from the Soul.

               – Jiddu Krishnamurti

Years may wrinkle the body, but fear wrinkles the Soul.

               – unknown

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.

It was not my lips you kissed but my Soul.

                – Judy Garland

 

 

When a dream keeps coming to your mind – it comes from the Soul.

Shiny object syndrome comes from the Ego.

Soul Purpose Energy is food for the Soul.  Anything short of that is Ego or being in survival mode.

Following the whispers of the Soul gets your imagination working, your heart opens and the flow of your life clearer and stronger.

Being able to bring the unseen (dreams, 5th dimensional energies) into the seen (3rd dimensional living) and that is what Alchemy is about.!!

Every moment there is choice – follow the whispers of your Soul or follow the Ego – one brings you closer to wholeness the other doesn’t.

What are you choosing?

Create an incredible experience – this moment, today!!

How do you see the world? How do you see yourself? Your body? Is it the truth or it is your point of view? Which doesn’t mean it’s true – we are all programmed by the age of 7 ( Dr Bruce Lipton – Honeymoon Effect) – your outer world is a reflection of your inner world – don’t be afraid to open up to other possibilities – nothing is true unless your give it your attention – Abraham Hicks – as Everything IS Energy!!

You might have some old outdated programs, patterns or points of views – if it’s not from Love then it’s probably a BFFL!! (big fat fucking lie!!).

Programming

Programming

www.jodiburke.com

Old Programming are like Old Trucks

Programming in our societies is deep and rampant.  I can finally see it so clearly!! A lot of our old Programming needs to be deleted!!

Everything we do are programs.

According to Dr. Bruce Lipton we are fully programmed by age 7 – yes 7 years old!!  We come into the world pure love and light and in Theta state – totally open – and the downloads begin.

Good news is since our brains are like computers – they can be totally RE-Programmable.

I really feel the movie The Matrix gave us some BIG clues – Everything IS Energy and much how we live is programs – not good enough, lack, struggle, gotta go to the Dr’s, eat 3 square meals a day, go to school get a good education, so you can be a good employee, work 40 hours a week – (usually doing something you hate for a pay check), we don’t have choice, we need meds to heal and so on………everything truly is a program – that is why TeLIEvision otherwise known as TV Programming is soooo Powerful.

Thank goodness people are waking up!!!!

We do Create, We are Powerful, We can RE-Program and Everything IS Energy and depending on your perspective of awareness is the Consciousness!!

Our Genes, which are affected by our DNA – does not have eyes or ears therefore they cannot see or hear what is going on – instead it determines the environment by reading the energy – our state of being – all our emotions are chemical reactions in the body – love, hate, joy, frustration etc

The body produces neurons based on how we are feeling – interrupt the state – if it’s states you don’t like or want aka anger, low self worth etc RE-Program, RE-Program, RE-Program so that the body creates more neurons of what you desire.  Change the Environment so the INvironment changes too!!

www.jodiburke.com

Old Mexican Scene!!

Does it take work?

You bet!!

It’s worth it though!!!

After all it is YOUR Life – fall in love with it and keep doing things that bring you Joy.  That is the way of living a truly more fulfilled and Conscious life!!

Shut the tv off that creates lack and fear programming, stop reading newspapers that do the same thing. Let go of people and things that bring you down.

Each moment and day counts!!

Get out into nature – the healing benefits of nature are endless, love yourself more, laugh more and don’t take things so seriously.  They are proving it’s all a hologram (more not that coming up in posts – mind twist?? you bet but it’s lightens things big time)

And remember NO one gets out alive – well our physical bodies anyways so lets all enjoy our life!!

Create an amazing, beautiful day!!

Let’s Eat Real Food!

Food

Real Food grows, dies, rots,

Real food doesn’t need an ingredient label,

Real Food doesn’t make claims

 – Michael Pollan

Eat Real Food to fuel your body – your beautiful body NOT to feed your emotions.

Not Feeling our Emotions keeps us locked up.

Emotions

Real Emotions transcends language.

You don’t have to understand their words to feel their pain.

 – Julia Roberts

Emotions don’t tell the truth.

Just because you have a feeling about something doesn’t mean it’s true – we are all running so many programs and most of them don’t support or even like us!

Emotions are Energy in Motion – unless you lock it into your body – deep breathing is always a god way to move thru them.

Real People having Real Conversations

Conversations

You know what is sexy? A real conversation!

 – unknown

We have more conversations in our head than in our real lives especially ones from the heart.

I like people I can have really deep conversations with  sometimes and yet still get silly with them too.

 

When we dive into the energy of things – IF Everything IS Energy and it is then lets get real – real with what we eat as our bodies do know the difference and can’t process fake foods hence dis-ease.  Lets not be afraid of feeling our emotions and working with some great modalities that help move the energy out faster – it’s ok to feel them – journal about it, stomp in the forest, talk real with a friend, punch a punching bag or your pillow, dance and move to move the energy and just be kind to you and anyone else. 🙂 And lets talk have real, more meaningful, deeper conversations – not about the weather or politics please!!

Come from the heart for yourself and others – we don’t know what people are going through – especially women today – IF Everything IS Energy – what kind of energy are you being with you? Lets start there first!!

Much Love & Gratitude

Intentions vs Resolutions

Intentions vs Resolutions

www.jodiburke.com

Intentions vs Resolutions – Intentions Bring Light

Happy 2018 – what a fantastic year it’s going to be!!

Now that we are a few days into the New Year how are your NY’s Resolutions going?

What do I mean exactly by Intentions vs Resolutions?

I did say in my last post I would share – here goes.

Most people do the same ole thing every year – set the same resolutions – and they have them narrowed down to the same top 10 that most people choose,

  • lose weight,
  • eat better
  • get out of debt
  • make more money
  • etc

You get the idea.

Sound familiar?

One starts off strong and by mid February if not sooner they’re back doing the same ole.  Just watch the amount of traffic at a gym or yoga studio from the first week in January and then agin in February.

People are creatures of habits – trust me I know!

So how to make 2018 different……

One truly needs to et very clear on what it is they desire – not just think they want but heart felt.

Start by creating a list of what things, ways of being etc you no longer want in your life.

www.jodiburke.com

Having unclarity in One’s Life is like living in a Fog

Get VERY clear.

From there make a list of things or how you want to be in your life and keep refining it so you are clear.

Get into the feelings of it – we want to access the emotional / feeling part of it and this is where one needs to be honest with oneself on what they truly desire.

It’s not always about the big house, new car, sitting on the beach all day – what feelings do you want to feel?

Joy?

Love?

Healthy and vitality?

Creativity?

Empowered?

Abundant?

Is it a different career that brings so much fulfillment?

Is it a new healthy relationship with yourself? Your body? or a beloved?

If your life is here and you desire to be there (whatever there is) – what feelings and emotions do you have now in your life and what feelings and emotions would you need to have to be over there (having your desires)?

The only difference between here and there is your beliefs, programs (and man are they deep especially with cultural and communities etc), fears, doubts  – they ALL act as filters.

The more you can see it in your minds eye – remember what Einstein said

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”

www.jodiburke.com

Get Creative with YOUR Imagination!!

The mind does NOT know the difference between real and imagined!!!!

So the more one can step into clear knowing of what they truly desire, let go and blow up all the programs, fears, doubts etc cause they are all nothing but big fat fucking lies anyways – the truth is always abundance and always love – look around at nature – always abundant! Then create and step into the feelings of it already being done – it may sound silly BUT IT WORKS! 🙂

I will keep sharing and explaining this in upcoming posts – Consciousness, Matter, Quantum Physics, Programs etc

PLEASE NOTE: Lack of anything is man made – it’s a construct, a program and is not natural to the Laws of the Universe.

You can NOT create something unless you picture it in your minds eye and also create an elevated emotion.

The more you do that with your desires – WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY – then it has to happen.

Why?

Everything is Energy – YOU being the observer of YOUR Dreams then can create matter aka manifest in physical form.

How cool is that?

Here is a simple analogy that may make is easier to comprehend.

You work 40 hrs a week and are needing a break.  You want to go on a holiday, so you start looking at resorts to go to to get away (usually not just from your job but your life too and more than likely the weather), you search the internet, look at different places, see the pools, beach, oh all you can eat etc – I bet right now you can feel how it would feel to be lying on one of those chairs on the beach feeling the heat on your body, the gentle breeze blowing, the smell of the ocean and you can hear the waves crashing on the shore – then the beach server asks you what you would like to drink……….get the idea??

More people spend more time creating a great get away then they do their life.

Lets do that with your life.

Remember, the only limitation is you!!

So drop and stop all those NY’s resolutions and get clear on what YOU intend to have happen in your life and step into the energy of being it – that is also called changing and raising YOUR Vibration!!

Much Love & Gratitude

Jodi

Focus – on YOUR Life

Consciousness

www.jodiburke.com

Time to Step into the Real You

Consciousness has no religion, no belief, no ideology, no gender, no sexuality, no race, no age, no nationality, no judgments……….You ARE Consciousness!!

After spending much time, as I shared in my last couple of posts digging in and doing some deep inner work this past year – I have also been diving into Quantum Physics and deeper into Consciousness and Energy as well – mind blowing is all I can say – seems simple yet not always easy due to ALL the BS (belief systems but yes the other one too), programs, doubts, fears etc

The more I learn I realize how little I know – being a Sagg I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and truth…….we have been lied to in so many ways and much will be exposed in 2018 in the world -and within ourselves – it time to take off our masks, live from our truth, connect more with our Souls and raise our Vibrations – which in essence is our awareness and our Consciousness.

My intention is to possibly plant seeds, wake one up on food, self love, body love, advertising, emotional eating, doing what you love to do and more………… we need now more than ever for people – especially women to step into their feminine yet powerful, authentic selves.

I have never felt it stronger and heard it as loud as I do now!!

As I sit on the back patio in Mexico I get to watch 2 Humming birds flying around and entertain me in between taking sips of their water – what a joy to watch – and that is what Humming birds represent is Joy in the native animal cards………where can you lose some old out dated beliefs, fears, programs and bring more Joy into your life?

It starts with a state of being.

As 2017 draws to an end I love to reflect back on what all happened, transpired, changed etc and start setting intentions for where I want to go and be doing for the next year BUT I don’t ever set any New Years resolutions and I will share why in my next post – maybe you will decide not to as well!!

Have a Joyful day!

Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde

 

www.jodiburke.com

Stop Paying Attention to What is Going on Around You

Don’t become too preoccupied by what is happening around you, Pay more attention to what is going on within you.

                    -Mary Frances Winters

 

Today, the day after winter Solstice is when Mercury comes out of Retrograde and is now in it’s shadow part.  I am not too much into Astrology – but maybe you noticed or felt it this time?? – this Retrograde was about reflecting, reviewing, revisiting on the past of 2017 and for some of us it was rather intense!

There is much on the internet for Astrology – Leo King, Kaypacha are my fav’s when I tap in.

www.jodiburke.com

Sometimes the Void is a Struggle – Just Surrender

Yet worth it!!

All good, yet not always easy as it feels like time is standing still.  For me I felt like I was in a void – once I realized this I knew I had to surrender and review.  When we can do that or spend some time in solitude, in nature, in quietness, in the question (not having an attachment or coming to conclusion) then we can allow in new energies, new thoughts, new beliefs and new ways of being for the coming year – 2018.

We learn to see and be from a new perspective which is a different energy which then creates a different life.  For me it has been extremely healing and expanding and growing!!

Quantum Physics and many people have proven that Everything IS Energy…….we ARE energy, consciousness, angels, souls or whatever other name you want to cal it – yet dressed up as a human while here on planet earth to learn some lessons, play, have fun, experience a wide range of emotions as once we return aka die – we go back to being pure love, light energy.

None of this will matter – as it’s ALL an illusion any ways……….a bit of a mind fuck isn’t it??  Yet when we approach it like that we won’t take it too seriously 🙂

What truly matters is how much did we love and how much were we able to give and be love.

It ALL starts with self.

Everything and Everyone is just a reflection back to us from our internal state of thinking and being.

www.jodiburke.com

Everything & Everyone IS Just a Reflection

Mercury rules the mind – our minds are very powerful – they are either working against us, with us or for us!!

Take some time before the end of 2017 to reflect and review to be able to be clear on what does work for you in your life and what doesn’t.

Create each day from the energy of being and feeling – joy, love, gratitude, bliss and whatever else that pleases you.

After all – it is YOUR life.!!

 

Much Love & Gratitude

Wow – It’s been a year!!

It was 1 year ago today I arrived in Mexico to do my first out of the country house sit.

Vancouver, BC

I took the red eye out of Vancouver leaving behind snow and ice – first time I saw snow stay in Vancouver for more than a day or two – little did I know at that time the snow would only continue coming big time over the next few months.

www.jodiburke.com

Mexico

Within my first 10 days of arriving in Mexico I had my birthday, had to put my dog down – while my best friend and father of my kids held the phone so I could talk to Spirit as he transition, then next my relationship of over 21/2 years came to an abrupt end.

www.jodiburke.com

Spirit

 

It was like my Soul wanted growth with no distractions – I didn’t know a soul in Mexico, couldn’t speak the language and had a little dog and cat to look after.

 

Fast forward a year now and the growth, healing, experiences, people I’ve met, things I’ve done, the programming and ways of being and earning an income that I’ve let go of was nothing I was thinking was going to happen when I came to Mexico – yet I was open to new experiences………I need to be really clear from now on! 🙂

 

I realized I truly wasn’t on the right path……I still had deeper work to do, experiences to experience on my own, people to meet, projects to start and reignite, places to see and photograph, journeys to take and to become more aware of energies and programs I was still running that weren’t serving me.

Havana, Cuba

I went to Cuba and walked over 100 miles in less than 8 days and have over 2000 images that I shot while there.  I did Yoga teacher training, spent many hours doing Yoga and walking the beach meditating, participated in Temezcals (Mexican Sweat Lodges), created a Why We do Yoga book with over 60 Yogis on Amazon and did a lot of soul searching on my own.

www.whywedoyoga.com

Why We do Yoga – on my blog & Amazon

 

In sharing all of that I want to extend a huge shout out to my friends that held space for me to process things and emotions – you know who you are, I am so eternally grateful and I love you!! Also had some amazing healers that helped me move thru things much faster – I love Energy Healing Modalities – all I can say is they work and work well.  Alina and Kare did Emotion code with me – you can find out more about it here or watch the documentary E-motion.  Neither has a website up yet but if you want to experience a session reach out to me and I can give you their contact info – they are both amazing!.  I did a Soul Retrevial with Jodi Parker who is someone I adore as she walks her talk and is very good at what she does –which is several things but you have to experience one of her sessions! Her site is Higher Living Journey.  Another person who I adore and is also very gifted at what she does is Sandra Wagman Sargeant – she has been reading for me for years and her readings are usually bang on! You can find out more about her and her readings at Readings with a Twist . All ladies work with anyone anywhere – love technology!!

Wow what a year it’s been.

No it was not always fun – but yet oh so worth it!!!

 

I also have had many amazing moments as well!!

www.jodiburke.com

Sunshine Coast, BC

 

And I just got back from spending 6 weeks in Canada – not the right time of year I agree but it’s how timing works sometimes.  I did some photo shoots for friends, my project, learn to connect with Spirit (no not my dog 🙂 but he did come in), saw many dear people (alive :)), released more of my stuff to truly becoming a nomad (and sad to say some people too yet it’s all good) – that happens when you just are not vibrating at the same level any longer.

It was cold oh so cold for me which makes me appreciate being back in Mexico even more so despite it being cold here right now  too – it’s still warmer than Canada!! Lol

 

And I just started another house sitting gig with my original person – now it’s not 1 dog and cat it’s 3 adorable little dogs.

 

I feel so blessed to what has happened, is happening and what is coming in 2018.

www.jodiburke.com

Greens & Superfoods!!!

Health and eating healthy will always be important to me, and I will always share as I do believe in superfoods (as you will see on my blog), live foods and more.  I had the privilege of photographing Troy and Sharon with their domes and towers and I am getting some towers – I think everyone could use these towers – we need to be growing our own foods!!  The info and link will be on my site soon if you want or know you should be growing your own food too!!

www.jodiburke.com

Growing Towers for Nutrient Dense Foods!

I’ve also dived into the crypto world big time – I have had Bitcoin for a couple of years and got educated on that big time but sat back – now I’ve jumped in much stronger and also highly encourage others to do so too!!  Reach out if you have questions or don’t know where to begin!

 

Living outside the box is more important to me than ever before.  My time in Canada and USA re-enforced that.  The stress I see people under, the prices, the politics and more.

For me that is not truly living my highest potential – as that is not my path.

 

What is calling me more than ever, what is truly wanting to be expressed now is a deepening within my own self to my true potential of living life to the fullest and one of those things is expressing the creativity from within that I’ve kept hidden for a long time and breaking free from self limiting programming especially around emotional eating.  I have always had a love for photography yet I put down my camera for many years – doesn’t matter now why but I did – and as you can see I have no ‘niche’ I enjoy capturing many moments……….just wait!! 🙂

www.jodiburke.com

What are Your Intentions?

2018 is going to be an amazing year.

 

I took a break from doing any posts as I was busy in Canada but also becoming much clearer on where I am headed and putting the final touches on my 21 Day Food & You program, with one more project in the works before I really dive back into the Raw, Naked and Beautiful project.

www.rawnakedandbeautiful.com

Raw, Naked & Beautiful – Real, Authentic & Whole

 

I know adventure, health, quantum physics, self love, art and photography are part of 2018 – and what I do love is working wherever I am as being the Sagg that I am my freedom is what is important to me.

 

How is 2018 looking for you?

 

Life is too short to be doing anything that does not bring you true joy and happiness.

 

We do create our lives – even when the shit hits the fan – it helps to show us who we aren’t or what no longer aligns with our true being – so take it as an opportunity for growth not to play the victim.

 

Thank you for stopping by, feel free to reach out with any questions or share this post!!

Being More Present

Being More Present

www.jodiburke.com

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.

www.jodiburke.com

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?
