Soulful Quotes

Be Open to Looking at Things Differently

Heart has no ego or judgment – always listen to your heart, it’s usually much quieter though and needs you to ‘tune’ into it!!

Normal is not something to aspire to it is something to run from 🙂

I care more about my relationship wit my inner being than anything else, If I am not in alignment with myself I have nothing to offer.

The worst enemy to creativity is self doubt!!

There is always time for Love.

Create an amazing day!!!

Energy

A picture of A Story of Our Souls where we dive deeper into Energy!!

Energy

What IS Energy??

Quantum Physics is proving everything is energy.

This is just a small snippet of stepping into this perspective that is finally becoming more well known, there are many out there with much more information to share if this is of interest!

Everything is energy therefore, it has a vibration which has a frequency and in that frequency is information that carries codes.

The movie The Matrix really gave us a lot of information but, since Hollywood put it out, we don’t believe it could be true. We think it’s make believe.

But, what if it some, lots of it was true??

That’s what makes the difference between a piece of lead and a piece of gold, is it’s energy.

To our five senses everything seems really stable, strong and solid.

Yet, is it?

On a little side note (one that I go into in the book A Story of Our Souls) if it didn’t seem solid, stable and real, we wouldn’t engage in the game of being here.

They have proven when they cut things in half and put pieces under microscopes, like a table  or that bar of lead or gold  for example, they’re still molecular structures with atom’s and nucleus and they’re not solid!! The atoms are moving around and mostly consisting of space!!

How’s that for a mind cluck??

so if everything IS energy, what vibrational frequency are you vibrating at and are you open to changing that to something different or higher?

Yes, you do have choice.

Love is the highest vibration, creativity, passion and joy fall in with Love – what do you do to have those higher vibrations in your life??

2020

www.jodiburke.com

2020 is About Clear Vision!!

2020  I like to say it’s a year of clear vision!!

20/20  – interesting metaphor isn’t it??

What is your vision for this year?

What is your vision for your life?

Do you know why you’re here or what your purpose is?

Are you your body,  your labels, your job, your bank account or anything else?

What is important to you and what are your values?

I know a lot of questions  and deep ones a as we move into 20 20.

This IS the year people are going to wake up more and more and more.

It’s so friggin needed!!

We need a bigger tribe as for the last few years I’ve been a bit of an outcast or afraid to open my mouth too much because when I did, I got laughed at, made fun of or called the conspiracy theory theorist or a wingnut.

I can laugh now as I understand the blocks and programs people are running that taks them away from their true self and their connection to their Soul.

Yet, look around, yes the world is in chaos and the more we choose Love over Fear we are moving in the right direction.

Not sure if you know this or not, but I crated an adult story book about our Souls.

It’s from my perspective and it has some quantum physics, science, fiction, of course some woowoo and truth woven through out the book.  Oh yeah, there are pictures too!

It’s my perspective, yet the bottom line is choosing Love over Fear and why.

There’s chaos in the world for reasons, they don’t want you to choose Love.

I invite you to read the first 3 chapters here to see if it resonates with you.

Yes, this IS the year.

The tribe needs to be bigger and it’s all about a vibe.

Choose Love, choose you!!

Intentions vs Resolutions

Just like the homes & colors – we are all uniquely different too!

ok, lets be honest here, did you make any resolutions this year and if so were they the same ones as last years and the year before?
Here are the top resolutions – that get repeated every year, year after 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

January comes and the gyms are full after the December binging and over spending.

February rolls around and there is less wait time for the machines at the gym and more room in the Yoga classes.   Then, by March, April at the latest, everyone is back to their same old routines and the resolutions, well that is for next year! 🙂

In 2020, we can push ourselves to do (actually I prefer the word be)our best without pressure, anxiety, stress or false promises.
We don’t need to compete, judge or beat ourselves up (most of us have gotten really good at that and we got to let that go!).
There is a difference between resolutions and intentions.
Intentions need to be heart felt.
What does that mean?
It’s one thing to say I want to lose 10 lbs (as an example) but if you’re really not coming from the heart, it’s only  wishful thinking or a heady decision (as in I should lose the weight) yet not heart felt.
So, it won’t happen.
Why do you want to lose 10 lbs? (or anything else on your resolution list)
Get behind and feel the reason, keep asking yourself why? How will it serve me or how will I feel when x happens (in this example I lose 10 lbs)?
Tap into the feeling you truly desire.
That feeling of already losing 10 lbs and see it in your minds eye (close your eyes and go within and really picture yourself 10 lbs lighter) then create the feelings to go along with it.
It could be to just feel better in your body, or to feel more confident, sexy or beautiful or whatever, you want to tap into that felling and feel it.
What is cool about this is – your mind does NOT know the difference between real or imagined – it’s just like a computer -whatever you program it with, it responds.  Therefore, the more you can see it AND feel it, you can do / be it!
If you can do that, when there are moments of it getting tough, or the monkey mind starts chattering to you why all the reasons you should stop or eat this or that or not go for the walk, you can tap back into the feeling you want to have more permanently.
That is taking back your power, that is overriding your ego / monkey mind, that is being you and more aligned with the real you.
It’s time to not push ourselves in a way that gets us burnt out, compete or  give up. It’s time to tap into different feelings so we can step into the best version of ourselves, with no pressure to compete against anything outside of ourself.
When we  set intentions that are heart felt and not to compete with anything or anyone outside of ourselves, then we are also overcoming those emotions of  fearing failure, fearing what people think of us, fearing that we’re not good enough.
That’s the power behind intentions compared to resolutions.
Here’s to saying goodbye to the past, to letting go what weighs us down, things that are not our truth or are inauthentic and to being appreciative of what 2019’s challenges have taught us.
Here’s to welcoming in 2020 with clear intentions, self love and gratitude for all.
My mantra for 2020 is:
Everyday in every way, I expect and choose to believe in magical moments and miracles.
I wonder what would happen if we started our days with a mantra like that, oh how the world might change!!

Reflections of 2019

Is life really as stable as we think?

So, it’s the last day of 2019.

I would be lying if I said that it was my best year ever, actually in ways it was one of the hardest yet many amazing moments as well..

Yet, as I reflect back, I see where I stumbled, grew, fell down, rose above, loved more, judged less, was open (or not) and it’s all part of life.

I choose to look at what I did accomplish and how that felt, yet also where I stumbled or fell and what I learned or how it challenged me to become more or step up or clear a trigger.

Some of my highlights were writing the book A Story of Our Souls, learning Photoshop – as it always intimidated me, doing a self 30 Day Challenge of a new image each day  (check out some of the images in my gallery) – not always fun when you’re not feeling creative, or have been working on an image for a few hours and forgot to save it…..oops!!  But that won’t happen again 🙂

All part of life – how we respond or react is up to us – yes we get to choose.

I’ve had to deconstruct some of the things I thought I ‘knew’, and through that I am truly learning that the more I stay open and learn, the little I actually do know.  It’s a big world out there with many  different perspectives nothing is a stable and concrete as we think, been lead to believe or told.  (that is a whole other post with quantum physics and the rabbit hole).

Yeah, there is alot of BS out there too.  I am learning to trust myself more and yes, many answers for ourselves are within.

2019 was so much about me stepping into more of me.

How was 2019 for you?

Have fun and be safe on New Years!

I’ll leave you with this thought:

Yesterday, is a  moment in time, a moment that not longer exists…….unless you let it.

Start each day fresh as there is only now – each moment is the now – are you present to it?

Beyond the Linear

Beyond the Linear

What I love about Impressionistic Photography is it takes one beyond the linear, into possibility and expansion beyond the ordinary.

Which is what Energy is ALL about.

The world needs a greater level of consciousness, which is awareness, creativity, uniqueness (not conformity), beauty & love.

Can you imagine that??

Jodi

PS – Not sure what I mean by that?  Check out my book – A Story of Our Souls – be prepared though, it may stretch your mind past the perceived ‘normal’!!!

Soul Art

What is Soul Art?

Soul Art

We are seeing the word Soul used more and more these days, yet do we really connect with the meaning of it?

Soul – the essence of a living BEing.  It is consciousness at a higher form that is part of Source (Creator, God, The Field etc)

Why is it so important?

It’s the truth of who we are.  We are unique vibrational frequencies that come down to Planet Earth to have an experience.  To do that, we put on a body suit (aka costume) walked through the veil of amnesia into the illusion of separation and are trying to make sense now of life.

What is meant by truth?

I share it like this, we put on this body suit aka costume and came to planet Earth, or as a metaphor – we went to this costume party, where there are a ton of others in costumes, great buffet of foods and different things to do while at this party, yet while at this party, we drank the koolaid and forgot that it is just a party (aka we can create Heaven on Earth) and we really became the costume.  Another analogy is the movies, it’s a movie being projected out from our consciousness then reflected back to us, yet we are so heavily involved in the movie that we have become the character we are playing totally forgetting it’s just a movie.

We are Souls having Human experiences, yet we have forgotten and in forgetting we have closed down our hearts.

That is the access to the Soul and re-connecting.

We are never totally disconnected, but we can reduce the connection greatly.

How do we increase that connection.

Self Love

Forgiveness to everyone and everything

Focus on what brings you Joy and do more of that and keep expanding it.

Become the observer of your reality – in other words, don’t get caught up in the dramas and traumas, gossiping etc – it’s all part of the movie / the party.

Not always easy, but ever so worth it as you will find as you keep growing that connection.

Besides, we need more Love in the world, it has way too much fear, red, control and manipulation.

Open your heart and connect with your Soul.

Soul Art for me is  in doing art (and I’m only getting started), writing my book, spending time in nature or the beach, going to markets, having deep conversations about life, love, the cosmos and consciousness, creating tasty dishes in the kitchen, going to markets and being fully present in the moment.

These are my ways of Soul Art – as we can incorporate them in many different ways in our living.

How about you – what brings you Joy that you could be doing more of.

Create a Soul Art day!

What We See

www.jodiburke.com

Let Go of ‘Seeing’ and instead Feel.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.  Imagination IS the language of the Soul.

Pay attention to your imagination, and you will discover all you need to be fulfilled.

  –  Albert Einstein

 

What we see………

If Everything IS Energy, and it is :), the range of frequencies (vibrations) that we “See” is a fraction of the entire frequency range……….

Book Sale

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes there is a book sale starting and I am inviting you!! 🙂

You probably don’t know that I have created and written 6 ebookskindle.

I know right??!!

From food to yoga to our souls!!

 

The first ones were Eating Healthy Made Easy   (now Free0 and Raw and Vegan recipe books that are easy and tasty (& all in 1 book as well), when I was being a big foodie.  The cool part is it got me back into Photography as I was creating food recipes for my blog.  I also get featured in a few other books by other people because of some of the recipes.

 

 

 

 

 

Then I also created a Food & You – Choose You book, as I struggled for many years with such low self esteem and an eating disorder and these are some of the tools I used to overcome them and come back to more of me plus I also to use some of my photos again! 🙂

Did you know that an Eating Disorder has a recovery rate of less than 30%?

 

 

 

 

Then, when I did Yoga teacher training, which came at a very difficult time in my life, yet also ended up being the perfect time and helped me big time so I thought why not photograph a bunch of Yogi’s and find out Why (They) We Do Yoga – hence the name of the book.  There are over 60 Yogi’s with 60 different whys ad you  may be surprised at some of them!!

 

 

 

 

www.astoryofoursouls.com

 

This year, I created A Story of Our Souls – an adult story book that has quantum physics, science, truth, fiction, a little woowoo and again some photos (ones that I could finally become more creative  with!).

If you have already purchased A Story of Our Soul – it’s been updated, expanded and edited so re-upload on kindle or shoot me an email for the new e-book!

 

To check out all the ebooks, click here.

 

In my time of going thru the dark night of the ego I call it 🙂 I am allowing more and more creativity coming out.  We are creative beings as our truth and when we learn to creatively express who we are – it’s way more fun!!

I have not been the best marketer I have to be honest.  I don’t like those click funnels,  give me your email address so I can drip on you, or hyping things.  I actually did the books as I loved creating them and hoping they could help someone in some way or just be enjoyed.  Yet, that can’t happen if I don’t at least share them, so I am now sharing them and for the next 4 days  (Thurs thru to midnight Sun) all of my books are  25 – 40% off and some are even FREE……..all the ebooks and some of kindle as kindle has it’s own rules!

So, please feel free to buy one or many 🙂 and also share this post if you like the books and feel this is worth sharing – I would very much appreciate it!!

If you already have one, awesome and thank you, if you loved it then please shoot me a message or leave a review!

With Much Gratitude

Jodi
