Focus

What has your focus? Your attention?

What do you think about most often?

When you are doing something are you fully present or is your mind wandering on what you will be doing next, or need to do, want to do or the shopping list?

I have been having some fun watching surfers – so many from different places, beginners to advanced, young to old – checking out the conditions, having patience and being very present an focused.

You have to be.

Whenever you find your mind is everywhere else but in what you are doing, in being fully present just take a few deep breaths in an you will come back into your body!!

It helps to create being present, awareness, focus and more consciousness.

Create a magical day by doing things or at least something that you love, that lights you up!!

Consciousness –  Yoga  – Photography

Quite the combination eh?  You are probably wondering how that came about??

 

Over the years, with many modalities, workshops, reading and from experiences has come learning and growing.  I have dived into consciousness and quantum physics off and on over the years not always understanding it.  People use the words, yet I feel very few people truly embody it.

What I have and still am learning with an eating disorder it goes much deeper into the psyche than I ever realized, so it’s become more of my mission to dive even deeper in.

When I am going through some major life lessons I am always looking for what I can learn, how I can grow, what do I need to be aware of, the patterns and beliefs for things to have been created like that – as we are the creator of everything in our lives.  What I am learning is exciting and I am diving deeper studying with Dr Joe Dispenza – this whole quantum field, consciousness and neuroscience is fascinating.

 

I still have a ton to learn and embody yet it keeps getting better every day.

Consciousness

Consciousness to me is personal growth, being willing to look at your stuff, open to letting go of ego and the way things should be, being more present in each moment as that is really all there is.  Knowing that as being consciousness we effect matter therefore it’s so important to eat, think and feel high vibing food, feelings, emotions which I will keep going into!!

www.jodiburke.com

Some things need to be left in the past!

It’s about being present – not living in the past and anything that keeps us stuck in old emotions get looked at, released and healed.  It’s about knowing and honouring who you truly are and not pretending to be someone else, competing, hiding yourself and doing things that aren’t you or you don’t like doing – even a job. leave the old crap in the past!

Breathing, meditation, love making, certain activities like surfing, yoga etc help greatly to be in the present moment!!

Surfer in Sayulita Mexico

I have had the pleasure of being able to de-program many things over the last couple of years of how I was living and what I was doing.  Even yesterday I got called out by caring people twice on some bs I was doing to still not fully embody who I truly be!!!

I love it!!

Everything is Energy – which has a vibration.  Anger and hatred and process foods have very low or even dense vibrations.  Love, Joy, Gratitude and real, fresh foods especially when grown with love and sunlight have much higher vibrations.

 

Example of how the Universe can work and does work when we get out of the way and try not to figure out the how.

Yesterday I thought of some photos I want to take while here in Sayulita, they are with the water and I need to use a slow shutter release – so slow I will need a tripod, which I did not bring with me.  This am I looked up a couple of photographers and called two and left a message about renting a tripod, then got busy with some other things and forgot about it. Low and behold later this afternoon as I went for a quick dip in the ocean, as I was walking down I suddenly realize I was behind 2 teenagers who lived here and spoke perfect English were carrying a tripod and yes he would rent it to me!!

Yes!!!

 

Coincidence?

Synchronicity?

Does it matter?

 

Consciousness to me is about all that we do, eat, feel and say – trust me I am learning every day where I am not or have not been conscious and it’s not a judgment of self, it’s awareness and once I have that then I can choose how I want to feel, be, say or do!

 

Yoga

 

I’ve dived into Yoga off and on since I was in my early 20’s, yet saying that not for the right reasons.

It was more for the asana’s and work out, not the body connection, breath work or even meditation.

Yes it’s me – I keep evolving and learning! Photography by Cherry Bomb

After years of working out hard, my body said stop and I did very little for a couple of years (this is also when I was deprogramming on many levels). My body was tired and achy – first time I could truly feel being in my body after a in person session with Mas Sajady.  People that have had an eating disorder or emotional eating work very hard to disconnect from their bodies.  Yoga helps to reconnect to it IF done with being kind to self and not creating it into a fitness program, judgment about self, body, weight, what you can or can’t do, and what fashion you are or aren’t wearing.

It has helped me become more connected to my body, aware and kinder to it.  Gone are the days of hitting the gym, long runs or any type of hard workout to look better or punish my body – it wants to be loved in many ways!

 

Photography

 

This truly is one of my passions and an art of mine that I have not allowed myself to do or found excuses why I couldn’t or shouldn’t do it.  Plus I was programmed that I could never make money doing Photography – and I bought into it.  All I know is I so enjoy doing it and there are tons of photographers who are better than me yet that is not what it is about.  People have encouraged me for years to keep at it, yet I never felt like I was good enough to do it.  So because it brings me pleasure and allows me to create and be / feel creative I want to bring in my Photography especially while travelling.

I have started working on a Photo Yoga project – where there is flow there is go.  I am needing many Yogi’s for this project and so far everyone I have asked or talked to has said yes!!  You will know more about it shortly and later this year it will be out!  That is just one Photo project!!

Yoga Photo Project

We are moving in a direction of healing for many of us and embodying more of ourselves yet sometimes we just don’t know where to turn we just know it’s time!

Living this way does not numb us, it gets us back in touch with ourselves.

Real being therefore real conversations.
Whole, plant based foods are true medicine.
Sharing vulnerably is being authentic.
Authentic connection is liberating.
Singing, dancing, being creative  and cooking is true medicine.
Nature is grounding.
Yoga is true reconnecting.
Meditation is slowing down and going within.

Love can create miracles.

Can you imagine a different world??

That is where it all starts!!

Much Love

New Years Resolutions Suck – Part 2

 New Years Resolutions Suck – Part 2

 

www.jodiburke.com

Mexico NY’s sunset

 

Went into a Mexican town near where I am staying to this restaurant that served the best shrimp ever.  We got the lat table and parking space as it was busy in this area with a New Years Day celebration going on al over and people were every where!

I got to watch the people having fun, playing, eating, celebrating – what joy!  Then I got to watch the sunset – and that is one of my most favourite things to do is watching the sun rise or set – such beauty and in the moment!!

www.jodiburke.com

New Years day in Mexico

 

Now that we know from Part one why New Years Resolutions suck – what can we do differently to make sure 2017 doesn’t turn out like 2016, 2015, 2014 and so on!

We all have things we want to improve on, work towards, change or let go of – go ahead and make that list of those things.

Now ask yourself why?  Why is it I want to have, be or do those things……..keep asking yourself why or even what will it mean?

When you’ve gone as far as you can now dig a little bit and ask how you will feel when you get there.

ex

I want to lose 5 lbs

Why?

Because my clothes won’t feel so tight

What does that mean to me?

I can wear more of my clothes and feel better in my body.

How does that feel when I think of myself being able to wear more of my clothes and feel better in my body.

I will feel more confident, more attractive, healthier……..

What you are truly going for is the feeling or essence of what you desire – if there is no emotion behind it, there is no energy and it will not happen.

ex

I want to lose 5 lbs

Why?

because, I do

Yes but why?

I don’t know, so I can fit in my clothes but it never happens, this probably won’t be any different this time (you may be thinking as well)

How will that make you feel?

I don’t know, better……

 

See the difference, better yet FEEL the difference.

Get some energy behind what you truly desire not just in New Year’s Resolutions but anything in life – E-motion is Energy in Motion – if there is truly just nothing there there will be nothing there.  Time to spend some time and get real and honest with yourself.  I you want to lose 5 lbs but have no interest in doing anything different and really don’t care if you first into more of your clothes or not – then just be honest with yourself so that later on you don’t have an excuse to mentally or verbally beat yourself up.

On you have the why, the emotion and the energy behind it – then you will more naturally move in directions that will help you on that path – all of a sudden some of your cravings may go down, or you just aren’t as interested in eating some of those foods, or tv well what a waste time lets go for a walk, get out in nature or do some stretching become a priority.

Pay attention though – you may get tested a few days in – go back read our why, the emotions and you may need to really bring those feelings to the forefront again as since we are human beings it can be easy to fall back into old patterns and programming – it takes minimum 21 days to change a habit / pattern as we are creating neuro-pathways.

I know you can do it though – you’ve got it in you.

Why settle for mediocrity where there is so much more out there!!

You deserve it!!

I’e got your back as I’ve been there before!!

Have an amazing day and get in touch with your why and feelings!!

Life will never be the same!

Jodi

 

PS

For al little more on this I will be doing my first FB live later today – will keep you posted on time!

 

 

Why New Years Resolutions Suck!!

Why New Years Resolutions Suck!!

 

You have 2 choices in life

– to live the life you were born to live

or

– live the life you were conditioned to live!!

The greatest source of pain in life is NOT living your Soul’s purpose.

www.jodiburke.com

Sometimes we need new eyes or vision to see clearer as to how we really want to be living!

2017 is going to be the year of truth and growth.

Lets not waste our time making the same New year’s resolutions as all the previous year.

Why do I say that?

These are the common resolutions people make each year

Lose Weight and Get Fit
Quit Smoking
Learn Something New
Eat Healthier and Diet
Get Out of Debt and Save Money
Spend More Time with Family
Travel to New Places
Be Less Stressed
Volunteer
Drink Less

 

AND the most broken ones.

Do any of these look familiar??

www.jodiburke.com

Sometimes all we see or focus on is what we have to give up, get through or the pain of change.

 

As I write this I am sitting in a quaint, little roadside cafe with organic gardens around, sunlight filtering through, beautiful music softly playing, fresh food available and open, nice people around – oh and I am wearing flip flops too!

I have learned this nurtures my Soul big time!!

I became honest with myself and what I truly desired!

What is the definition of insanity?

Keep doing the same things over and over yet expecting different results!  And I know that – I’ve been there many times!

I stopped doing NY’s resolutions years ago.  I started doing thing daily, weekly, monthly that in a years time I could look back,reflect and say holy shit – good job Jodi!!!  Look at how far you’ve come, look at where you were and where you are now!

It’s those little things, those little steps / choices that we make daily that over time can hugely shift our lives – it does not have to be the all or nothing on NY’s!

Look at gym memberships as an example – the first week in January the gym is crowded – you will wait for machines, classes will be jammed pack full and my March back to the same old.

Stop jumping in with the all or nothing mentality!

Remember – it’s YOUR life – each moment is a choice point – what are you choosing?

www.jodiburke.com

Is your foundation of yourself and your life solid and strong or not?

Stay tuned for Part 2 with some great questions to get you thinking about How Do You Want to be Living YOUR Life!!

Until then, have a fantastic New Years no matter what you are doing and prepare for 2017 to be a pivotal year!!

Much Love

Well it’s been a little over a week since I arrived in Mexico and wow what a week!  My adventure truly has begun!

For many of you, you have may have travelled outside of North America – but embarrassing as that may be yes it’s my first time and I am immersed right in Mexican culture.  I am learning about the peso, Spanish and how friendly and nice the people are.

www.jodiburke.com

Mexican Store

 

In the week since I’ve been here and getting my feet wet so to say I’ve had my Birthday where I was treated to a Mexican lunch on the water and massage with a little walk about in the tourist but very Mexican part of town.

www.jodiburke.com

Preparing Coconuts

I got a mini tour of Guadalajara, which that downtown makes Vancouver seems like a town – oh my!!  Great old Spanish style architecture and an old big church.  I also got to meet a family that for 5 generations have been hand painting pottery.  I got  tour of space that is the same place still over all those years.  It takes days to paint a piece and they are well known as Harper and Obama with the Mexican President all used their plate ware etc  They have been written up all over the world.  What a treasure!

www.jodiburke.com

 

www.jodiburke.com

 

I’ve been to a few markets, walked many cobblestone roads, watched some great sunsets, ate some Mexican food and even took the local bus!

I realize how fortunate we are in North American and well take things for granted!

During this week Mercury also went Retrograde and it’s an extremely powerful time more so than other retrogrades.

 

The day Mercury went retrograde my long time buddy Spirit passed over into spirit form – not easy being where I was and having to make a decision, but my dear friend who has known Spirit since I got him as a puppy and the co-parent of Spirit (and yes our kids) were there, I couldn’t have asked for anything better – he knew he was greatly loved.  We have been so blessed to have him for almost 14 years – he was a great dog.   He was a gentle dog yet his wildness came out when protecting the property from bears.  He probably set a record for chasing and or treeing many bears!

www.jodiburke.com

Spirit

 

Coincidence he decided that that day was the day to pass over?? I don’t think so, he was part wolf and extremely smart!

I also gave up my Mushroom Bullet coffee morning ritual………..holy shit not much going on in my world!!

I share that with you as I am setting the stage for 2017.

What do I mean by that?

www.jodiburke.com

This Mercury Retrograde is about letting go of things, beliefs, ways that no longer serve you.  I have also been diving in deep to my values, my future, why am I here, how do I want to be of service, what is my purpose and how do I operate in this world.  How much of the world is set up doesn’t work for many of us. I have been studying and learning Human Design as it’s been the best thing for me to know me better. It has answered so many questions about me. My truth is about being more authentic in the world and helping others see their truth and know who they really are and their beauty and uniqueness.  I’ve deepen my knowledge of quantum physics, parallel universes and of course energy!!

Everything is Energy and we ARE  Energy!

We spend approximately 1/3 of our life working – are you happy doing what you love or are you collecting a pay check?

We are all highly intuitive – are you following your intuition?

Do you really know who you are or how you want to be in the world?

Do you have a vision, a very clear strong vision of your future, how you want to live, be doing etc?

The moon is in Sagg – which is my sign – its expansive and all about truth and  adventure.

It’s a BIG transition going on right now, so if you are feeling the energy good!

Dive in, ask yourself some questions, journal, meditate, cry, dance, move your body, love more and during the holidays try to eat healthy!

Had to throw that in 🙂  by ignoring what you’re intuitively feeling or picking up on by overeating, eating a lot of sugar sweets or one too many cocktails January will be hard for you.

www.jodiburke.com

Eat More Real Foods

 

Ask yourself these questions – Are you in love with your life? and Are you in Love with YOU!?? (not egotistically speaking)

This is the time to tap into you, get out of the friggin box, and get creative – if you wanted to work for yourself NOW is the best time.

2017 is going to be an amazing year for people to expand, wake up, truths to be exposed and for many of us to claim our uniqueness, our beauty and our power.

Will you be joining in?

The Dark Night

 

 

There are moments in life, or at least my life when things seem to be dark…….of course it could be my only my perception.  Not a depression so to say, just when things seem tougher, a struggle or emotions are coming up.

It could be too that I have been selling and giving away almost all of my belongings, all my things including my home, the last to go is my car and it’s any day now.

Yup – everything.

Tell me that doesn’t bring up one’s shit………..judgments, fears, stories, etc

It’s been kind of bittersweet to be honest.  Saying good bye to antiques I’ve had for years, one’s that I refinished and I love.

Letting go.

Non-attachment.

My friends know and most understand or get it to a certain degree what I am doing.

Many people don’t know exactly what I am doing except I’ve been talking about going travelling.

Something I’ve talked about since I was in my teens.

Honestly I’ve never been out of North America…………..

November and December have been raining and grey – perfect time to go within and let go.

2016-12-10_0003

All the old crap that doesn’t serve me any longer, the stories, belief systems, types of work or doing things that don’t align with my soul.

I have been paying attention to what has been coming up for me – emotions, memories, sadness, excitement, overwhelment, doubt and probably everything else.

What has been great is I’ve had many awarenesses and have bee able to let go of some triggers, old childhood stories that no longer served me – when that happens you start to feel lighter, freer and more empowered.  You start truly connecting with your true essence or your source energy.

I have been watching The Leo King and Kaypacha Astrology reports and man it’s paralleling me right now!!

The whispering of my soul, my heart had been calling me, ever so quietly, then louder and louder – the new chapter is beginning!

Always through the dark night the light will shine again especially if you keep moving forward, breath and know this too shall pass!!

Can’t wait to share my next post with you as the new journey begins!!

Create a magical day!!

Coming Clean

Coming Clean

www.jodiburke.com

Love Eating & Coming clean!

 

 

The only person I ever need to really be true to is me and I’m coming into a place of truly coming clean.

Now that is not meant to push others out, but I’ve been a people pleaser, rescuer, single mom and well what is it I truly want or need?  That pattern has not been working well for me.

Throughout my life I have dived into many books, workshops, modalities over the years to learn, grow and evolve……..some things worked for me, and some things didn’t. Some only took me so far and the one thing I’ve tried to do in the last few years  is to look at the patterns in my life- to some which I have unconscious incompetence………I’m totally oblivious to it and yet sometimes it can be so clear yet I still don’t want to acknowledge it lol

Sometimes I say WTF and do nothing – I’ll be honest! 🙂

Some things are very clear to me once I truly am open to looking at them or ready to move into a new way of being or living – ok that sometimes has come after being knocked down a few times or kind of banging my head against a wall trying to force something.  Not always easy as in my second marriage I realized I HAD indeed re-maried my first husband so much so they even looked similar – cute not always bright !!

www.jodiburke.com

Wall

 

 

I have been diving into learning and feeling and becoming much more aware of the energetics of things because as we know, or at least should know as it should have been taught in school is that EVERYTHING IS ENERGY – Notes from the Universe remind us!!

That is where I am trying to start from by asking myself ‘If everything is energy and energy is vibration – what am I vibrating – fear or love? Empowered or Disempowered etc

Is who I am being in alignment with what I desire and how I want to live?

 

A BIG fat Hell NO!! lol

Please don’t get me wrong – I have a pretty good life, many things are pretty cool – yet there’s a couple of areas that I truly felt I wasn’t creatively expressing who I truly am. As an example  chasing or doing things to earn an income but were maybe out of alignment with who I truly am – not that they are bad things but not in alignment wit me.  I have been digging into this for awhile and asking questions about what separates people out who live a truly fulfilling life compared to someone who is living a life of mediocrity and more importantly that they (or I for instance  in areas of my life) want to change it and yet keep running up against blocks……that unconscious part.

Some call it the Shadow side.

Some call it the woundedness of childhood.

www.jodiburke.com

Take the path right for you!!

 

Where was I going against the grain in my life? What path do I want to go down?  We have been conditioned, or at least I have been that I was suppose to get any job, work hard, keep my head down and get used to it as that is the way it is………until I started asking ‘who said that?’ ‘Why?’ ‘Why would we come down to earth and do things that we don’t enjoy?’ WTH?? Seriously?

This starting making no sense to me!!

I’ve been reading, learning, seeing many people create income, lives, relationships and ways of being attuned to who they really are, being and loving to do.

If Everything is Energy, and Einstein proved that, then we as the observer or better yet the creator do have a huge say in how our lives are lived – in other words we have choice each moment – in what we think, say, feel or do.

But we’ve been dumbed and numbed down – news, mindless tv, processed crap food, emf’s, consumerism  (i.e. Black Friday)  and technology to truly take us away from feeling and being present in many cases.

www.jodiburke.com

Healthy Eating!! Lots of fresh foods!

 

 

Realizing this has given me much power in setting stronger intentions and really really getting in touch with who I am and how I desire to live my life.

I’m coming clean in my life in many areas (which I will go into more soon). 🙂

One of the modalities  has been  helping me huge with much clarity.  I can see better in areas why I’ve been doing what I’ve been doing, how I process information, what feels right for me and what doesn’t and honouring that truth – in other words getting out of my head and more into my heart, body and knowingness that I have.

It has helped me in such big ways I have jumped in to study it and will need people who would like to have a mini session coming up.  If you are looking for clarity, an out of the box thinker, love learning and growing and want to know you better shoot me an email.

I truly believe that when we start living our lives from our true authenticity then we are able to truly creatively express who we really are and the world needs more authentic, loving, real people!!

It’s about being in the flow – the flow of living life…

www.jodiburke.com

BE in the Flow

 

Hope this has stirred something inside of you!!

Create a magical day!

The End of a Chapter

The End of a Chapter

The Winding Road

 

 

After a long embrace and the tender parting of a soft kiss, holding back tears we said so long for now and I got into my car and drove away.

Just like the beginning of the drive down a road of twists and turns as it ran along side a fast running river into the mountains to climb high through the mountain pass – my emotions were dancing a similar dance.

An incredible amazing journey of four months with 11 weeks of it  travelling through 17 states and 7000 miles later my time in the USA had come to an end with an openness of when our next time was.  We had always known when the next time would be but not this time.

On top of those emotions was the Supermoon and it’s energies and an energy of one situation that was creating tension and separation.

For me personally, last week was an intense, emotional week that challenged me on many levels of my thinking, loving and being.

I realize once you go down the path of personal growth towards a higher consciousness, there is no turning back – dammit!!

It’s when in the fire I wish sometimes I could have chosen an unconscious life this time, yet at the same time I know once I move through the fire – the other side is worth every moment of the intensity!!

That is the one thing we must learn and embrace is that everything constantly changes.  That everything is Energy and Energy never sits still – it’s always in motion.  We are beings that think too much, love too little, take little responsibility for our choices and live at status quo which is mediocrity filled with much fear and worry today.

Fear and worries of who and how the new president will handle things – and I’m Canadian and we talk about this stuff!  So much fear on the news, worries about job layoffs and so on.

We are realizing the systems are broke and we can’t keep hanging onto old ways of living, feeling (or not), and being!

www.jodiburke.com

Old Abandoned House – Like some Emotions Should Be!

We are tapping into the universal collective, so when something like the supermoon comes it intensifies and if one is open to doing the work, huge growth and potential can come out of it.  It will illuminate your darkest corners, you shadow sides so that you can have a look at it and transmute it so that there is more light.  The world needs more light right now in a big way.

So don’t be afraid to go look at your stuff.  Learn how to move the energy, transmute the lower vibrations of fear, worry etc back to love.

Many ways one can do this – journalling, EFT or any modality that resonates with you.  Stop listening and watching all the fake news as that is controlled too.  Start by going inside of you – breathing, meditating, movement, journalling and listen, really listen in to what your heart is sharing with you.  Stop listening to the status quo.

Trust YOUR inner voice no matter what!

Don’t shy away from any patterns, beliefs or wounds you may have endured as we all have!

We are here or should be here to support one another through challenging times so we can raise all of ourselves into a healthier, higher collective consciousness.

I am so grateful that I had some amazing friends in my life that held the space for me this past week as I dove into my feelings – something that has never been easy for me.  One of the major things with an eating disorder is not wanting to feel – not wanting to be in the body as life has been painful, so we stuff it down, those feelings with food as a distractor.

www.jodiburke.com

From the Darkness and Clouds emerges the Light

 

All negative feelings and emotions just want to be seen so that they can leave and once you do it and keep doing it, it’s incredible how much lighter, freer and more joyful you can become.

So honour where you are at, ask for help, journal, take a hot bath, go for a walk in nature, ok I’ll be honest – I stomped through the rainforest dropping some F bombs 🙂 whatever works (as long as it doesn’t hurt you or someone else) – breath deep, cry and most of all don’t judge yourself, allow yourself the time to move thru this.

Remember, if you are too busy to do it when an emotion comes up and you keep surpressing them, then it will manifest in the body as some sort of pain or disease – remember – we are energy, the body, mind and soul ARE connected and we are in the dense third dimension but we can become much lighter!!

Since moving through some of that dark energy I will call it or intense feelings I have come out with more clarity, more self awareness and love as I embark on this new chapter in my life.

Great many things will be happening and I can’t wait to post and photograph them!!

That my friend is part of Vibrant Living!!

Me in my Firma Wear being silly 🙂

 

Sometimes things come along and you just have to share them!  When a dear friend told me about Firma Energy Wear – I was like sure, whatever.  Crushed crystals in the fabric – hmmmm

Now I admit I’m a little out there more so than most people, people have always thought I was into the hippy dippy things or a little woo woo – but mostly I have been ahead of the curve many times, and probably a witch in many life times past 🙂

Crystals in clothing, interesting – even if I was a tad skeptical I had to check it out.

Red Rock – a beautiful place to do Yoga

 

So that is what I did.  A friend and I headed out to their little store / warehouse in the suburbs of Vancouver this past July, as I have to see and touch things and for this I wanted to try them on.  I have to admit, I wasn’t overly excited at the selection from the internet so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

When I got there and tired on the capris, I left them on for a good 10 – 15 mins and I couldn’t believe how good they felt on my body.  My body was literally saying ahhhh.  I never really fully experienced that before.

So I jumped in and bought some items to wear.

www.healthyvibesclothing.info

Oh my – didn’t realize we dressed the same!!

I’ve travelled in them, slept in them, have done yoga in them, and just wore them during the day as they feel good on.

Early September I was in bed one night and was looking at my legs, – don’t ask…….and since I was pregnant with my first child – he just turned 22 years old, so over 22 years ago, I developed a varicose vein from being on my feet too much.  It is o the inside of left thigh and over time has grown and even bulged a bit.  It’s never hurt or bother me, just looks kind of ugly.

Well, if I hadn’t known my legs I wouldn’t have believed it, it is way down in size, length and doesn’t bulge any longer.  I jumped up out of bed and had to double check with all the lights on.  I even notice the cellulite in my thighs was down………..so this stuff really works I was thinking!!

This was about 6 weeks after buying the clothing.

Clothing with a purpose – I love it!

I get it looks like exercise wear, and it’s great for that, but it really is every day wear or night time wear.

Love our Healthy Lifestyle

 

Just a quick synoposis is that the crushed crystals are infused in the fabric which is made in France, then manufactured in Brazil into

garments – it’s a closed knit fabric, so the crushed crystals never wash out – hand wash of course.  (Quick and easy).  The crushed crystals absorb the body heat and reflect it back as far infrared technology therefore improving microcirculation, reduces aches and pains, cellulite, reduces muscle fatigue just to name a few things!

Had to do the stairs – what an experience!

I know of several people who have experienced pain in their bodies and it has helped greatly.

I have just recently been introduced to something else that one wears that is getting huge testimonies.

What I love about the alternative health area si using products like this that help, support, nurture the body and don’t harm it.

I feel over the next few years we are going to see more and more come out that really have some great benefits for the body and possibly the mind – that do truly work.

The Ups and Downs of Travelling

The Ups and Downs of Travelling

Gulf Breeze – Florida

 

Just arrived back after travelling for approximately 11 weeks, through 17 states and almost 7000 miles…………..it’s been incredible yet not always easy!! lol Oh the ups and downs of travelling!!

For the most part it’s been fantastic.  Saw many places I’ve never seen before, met many new friends, connected with dear friends, wore flip flops lots, took many pictures, found lots of great markets, ate amazing foods (yes while travelling and I will post on that!) and then a few little hiccups that aren’t worth mentioning but some did prevent me from being on the internet like my hard drive crashing YET I did save most of my stuff!!

Amazing Old Old Building in Toas, NM

 

I will share more of our travels and photos in upcoming posts – I took so many photos as we had so many amazing adventures!!

 

Crystal in Santa Fe, NM

So many photos – I don’t even know where to begin.  I know I probably could have posted more along the way, but while travelling we did stay at places with no internet often, which was a tad frustrating but also awesome – it allowed me to unplug more, be more present, get more into my creative juices and just be and create space where I could explore what I truly desire – not from a materialistic stance but one of feeding my soul, listening to heart, what gets my juices flowing type of space.

Yoga at Red Rocks, CO

 

I love travelling.  There are so many places to see, people to meet, next experiences to have that life is just too short!!

My kids are off travelling and have probably seen more of the world than I have.

Yes I got the bug and I am very fortunate to be able to travel due to having businesses that allow me to work or not wherever I am.

Red Rocks

 

While travelling this time, and having little internet access – which btw, I have found a great solution for and will be able to share more next month – has allowed me time to really dive into some things.  Since meeting some incredible people – people who are out of the box thinkers, creators and livers – in other words they truly embody who they really are, live from the heart and their truth and live healthy lives truly inspired me to up my role in my life.  I have been feeling flat lined in areas of my life and a sluggishness – it’s either what I added in to my way of eating or how I am thinking now and being or both – either way it’s great.

Quick snack on the border of 2 states!

 

I have always had an interest in the mystic side of things, health, alternative, quantum physics and it seems like now things are clicking faster and deeper.  I am doing more yoga, currently on a 10 Day Transformation and allowing myself time each day to meditate, do breath work and have some creative fun – otherwise I get bored and bitchy!!

I am heading out again come December some time – possible house sitting gigs lining up and to do more travelling and get out of the grey rainy season that is now upon us on the West Coast.  With my new phone I will have – posting and being on the internet will never be an issue again, I am so looking forward to taking many more photos and being on top of it better this time – this was like a trial run!!

Great Markets – Great Food!

 

I will be working on my Raw, Naked and Beautiful Project as that has become very clear to me that it needs to be finished and I will be starting another one to go along with it – which I can’t wait to share!!

There is nothing like feeling great, healthy and in love with oneself and life – not form an egoic sense but a true love that is deep and real.

Roasted Chilies – Taos, NM

 

There were many great things about this trip that all I can say is wow – can’t believe where the time went as it was incredible!!

 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Just wanted to update you on where David and I are on their road trip!

Wow the last couple of weeks have been busy, have had some great things happening, met some amazing people, and am seeing how the weather is in Florida in the summer – lets say it’s hot and a storm almost every day due to such humidity so the lightening shows have been amazing!!

www.jodiburke.com

We have also had some personal things go on that have not been pleasant like getting news of a friend passing rather suddenly and a few other things that knock the wind out of you even though they are part of life – not the pleasant part.

Yoga on the Beach

 

We have been on a road trip for a month now, very little internet and no data on my phone – being Canadian down in the USA I just refuse to pay a big cell phone bill – so I can’t go on the internet as often and it’s made me realize how much I did go on the internet and Facebook and wasted time.  I’ve also found a phone that is coming out soon that I can’t wait to share – 5G, in 122 countries that has unlimited talk, text and roaming plus 52 gigs of data a month all for $49………..I love disruptors and being a forward thinker!!

Taking time daily to nurture self and diving into yoga deeper (wearing the Firma Wear I just started carrying and I love love this clothing line!!

We were also at the Purium convention in early August in Orlando.  To be honest I am not a big convention person personally – too many people and usually too much hype and bling type of shows which I’m just not into yet this was different.  I have always loved Purium and the products – live, organic and non-gmo greens and superfoods which are so needed today (I will go into more later on what sets these products a part because there is a huge difference).  Yet to hear that they are now switching (or will be as containers run out) to totally biodegradable packaging that is made from hemp, bamboo and tree resin as well as the little sample packs made my heart sing – a totally conscious company.  Not to mention that in April at David Sandoval’s oasis there will be an Unconventional open to the public that really is of this tribe and to vendors who want to do healing work, sell their goods (no competition with Purium of course) and join in the fun – now how cool is that??

We’ve been spending time either at David’s mom’s place or my dad’s winter place both without internet  – so the clubhouses have them, it’s not bad sitting by the pool side let me tell you!! Yet it’s just not as convenient – but if that is the only issue I am so fine with that!

www.jodiburke.com

We have caught sunrises at the beach, talked with a 97 year old man who’s reading books on how to live over 100 years – his secret – NO sugar or processed foods, daily sardines, plant based way of eating with meat once a month, 6 almonds, 1 cashew and 1 walnut daily plus he walks twice a day about 2 miles each time and has a wonderful attitude!!

www.jodiburke.com

Have sampled a few different beaches on the East Coast and the Gulf side of Florida – stopping by health food stores and having some great conversations with healthy like minded individuals.  Attended some talks, found an amazing conscious, organic and non-gmo restaurant that had delicious food and ambience – I share that as we seldom go out to eat – while travelling most places to stop for food or restaurants are just crap – it’s really not food and we’re so used to creating our own dishes even while travelling and doing picnics we are actually spoiled now.

There really is such a huge difference between eating and feeding the body that once you are doing it you can never go back!!

Also because of some of the curve balls that have been thrown at us lately – deepening our relationship, our communication and really supporting one another through a few difficult times has been an incredible journey as well.

This time with little internet has let me dive deeper into me, my dreams, my fears, my goals, etc and what has been holding me back from truly creatively expressing who I am.

Dove into a great book and have to share it, it’s title is ‘When Did You Die?’ and you can read a free chapter here at www.Templeahyes.com – the book was a gift for David but I truly believe it was for me and now can’t wait to meet Temple – what an incredible lady!!

The reality is for me I now realize is that life is short, life is precious and we are not meant to struggle – if you are not loving what you are doing you have choice choose something else and choose it fast why waste your time – trading each minute, hour and day living a lie, doing things you don’t like doing, being miserable, hating life or people or what you are doing and needing to numb yourself through food, alcohol, drugs or anything else.

Life is getting me high – between eating clean and pure, digging up the roots that took me down a path of self destruction through an eating disorder and with it partying in my earlier years I lost a big part of me and never felt good enough……..not any longer……for the first time in my life I am actually connecting with my heart and true source.

I look forward to sharing more.

I also look forward to catching up with some women in the near future and continuing on with my project – the world needs us all to shine our light – are you ready??
