Mirror Mirror on the wall

Who is the fairest one of all

You are my dear

I am?

Yes

As your outside world is just a reflection of

Your inside world

Therefore, always choose Love

Starting with self

And watch what happens

in your life

as long as the Love is pure………..

that is where the magic happens.

Reach Out to Your Soul’s Nudgings

 

There is a light in your heart

Ready to be lit

There is an emptiness

In your Soul

Ready to be filled

Can you hear it?

Can you feel it?

Answer the stirring,

As it’s your Soul

Calling

Calling you back home

It’s time

Reach out

Waiting for you……….

Unpacking – Letting go

 

Unpacking – Letting Go 

www.jodiburke.com

To turn dark into Light – Do the Inner work – it’s so worth it!!

I finally learned

That the

‘spiritual journey’

had little to do

with

doing yoga,

being nice

eating healthy

wearing the right labels

needing a label for identity

or conformity……….

It’s all about

self discovery

letting go of the past

the hurts

the regrets

the should haves

and being able to forgive

be authentic

be truthful

be creative

be present

have boundaries

and most importantly

having self love

Only then can the darkness

Turn into light

And the more we are light

The more magic we

Can create

And living each day

Only becomes more great

As that is our core truth

so

Unpack and let that shit go!!

Time to Start Unpacking

Time to Start Unpacking

www.jodiburke.com

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

 

In life

and living

the choice is always ours

to whether or not to leave our baggage as is

or to unpack it

The baggage represents all our past hurts,

regrets, deceptions, traumas and more

They are over

done

except by holding on to the story

the energies stay alive

and hold you back

in so many ways

They may have been true

and even real

yet only in that moment

It’s the attachment that keeps

those energies alive

Yes it may have hurt you

frustrated you

angered you

disempowered you

belittled you

or more

Yet, that is not you!!

You are love at your core

and are part of Creation

it’s when we can forgive

and let go

is where the truth lies

and true healing occurs

Not always easy

trust me I know

Yet that will truly set you free

Free to be

Free to love

Free to feel

Alive again

The gift in all of that is

To have more of you!!

There is never a better time

to start unpacking than in the now…….

Could It Be……

Could It Be……..

www.jodiburke.com

What path are You choosing?

 

 

It is not our truth or our path

to suffer,

We have just forgotten,

We are more powerful than we know,

and we can chose things that help ease the journey,

that allow us to live our passion

and grow,

To be our truth

and express who we be

Could it all just be an illusion?

If so,

what path are you choosing??

 

Jodi

No choice is good or bad unless you think so!

Yet are You choosing for YOU??

Where is the Love

Where is the Love

www.jodiburke.com

Where IS the Love? Inside of YOU!!

Love is a vibration

Yet we are taught to go seeking Love

Outside of ourself,

The truth is beautiful one,

You are LOVE

Your job is to remember that

When you do – it will set you Free

Feel the Love

Breath it in

As anything less than Love are lies

Start with yourself

Be Love

Anything less than Love

has you locked into the deceptive illusion

of separation

Love IS your truth

BE it

Love IS the highest vibration of all.

Just BE the Love Vibe!!!

Let That Shit Go

Let That Shit Go

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

 

What comes from the deepest part of me?

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

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

When did I supress myself?

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

Time to let that shit go.

We weren’t meant to fit in!

For me and for you!!

PS – Our truth is Love and nothing short of it!!

Old Mexican Buildings

Part of an Old Garment Factory in Mexico

 

 

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

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

One of the Halls in the Factory

 

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

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

Thru the Old Door

 

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

Both of these buildings were big.

Just Part of the Old Hacienda

 

 

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

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

The Second Building

 

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

Just think about that for a moment.

I’m Curious of the Stories Here

Yet, we can start choosing differently.

We are more powerful than that!

I forgot to mention, I took tons of photos, had fun and am excited about the stories I will be creating with them – this is only a taste of much more!!  I was in heaven!! 🙂
