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!!

The Lover

 

www.jodiburke.com

Waves of Emotion

 

As I pulled back the covers

and slipped out of bed

I knew

it would be the last time

that I would be with my lover,

We had connected

and made passionate love,

yet, in the moments after,

came that feeling

of uncertainty

yet knowingness

that the energy had shifted

between us,

the conversation still flowed

as we made coffee together

laughter

smiles

sweet little kisses,

Yet underneath it all

the ending was near,

not a bad word spoken

as there was not a regret

as the last kiss

was shared between us,

Only a love was shared,

of two souls coming together

that knew with out words,

that they have met

many times before,

and that this,

was just a passing moment,

in another life time

of the eternal now.

Language of the Soul

www.jodiburke.com

Energy

Are you listening

to the call

from you Soul

it’s that longing

that keeps getting

pushed down

it’s the emptiness

that never fills up

it’s that loneliness

that never leaves

it’s that doubt

that you keep dancing with

and it only gets

louder

the dreams get more distant

the heart gets more

shut down

as

that is the

language of the Soul

the access point

where you can meet

and connect

learn to speak

the language of the Soul

by opening your heart

its the only language

which is a vibration

the Soul knows

as it wants you to remember

the magic

that comes alive

in your life

when you open your heart

and speak

the language of your Soul

7 Day Challenge – Do Something New

7 Day Challenge – Do Something New

www.jodiburke.com

Energy Moves

Ever since doing the 30 Day Photo Challenge, I felt there was something more, something different.

I saw this Tedx talk the other day – and I thought to myself what a great idea!!

For 365 days, this guy did something new every day, now that is stretching your growth, imagination and experiences for sure!!

So often, we get into the same old, same old every day – we go to work the same way, see the same people, eat at the same places etc

What have you been wanting to do that you haven’t done?

What have you been saying that ‘one day I’ll……..? (you fill in the space)

What have you ben wanting to do but are afraid, or fear what others may think? (as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else :))!

This is an invitation to step out of your comfort zone and do, try, eat, experience something new for the next 7 days.

You can keep it all to yourself or share it – but just do something!!

There are no rules, nothing is good / bad or right / wrong  – with integrity of course 🙂

Each minute, each day gives us a fresh opportunity of a choice – we can keep choosing the same thing or experience from the buffet table of what life has to offer.  If you don’t like it, now you know and don’t have to experience it again.

If you do like it, then you can have more of it – yet until you try it you will never know!

In the past week, here are a few of my new experiences –

ate Chilaquiles – a Mexican style breakfast, took a Spanish class (always one day), tried shooting 2 new ways and because of that I had to learn had to edit a new way (the above image), I painted my toenails Gold as I’v never done that always stayed with plain colors, sat and talked with my new bff the rooster and it was rather entertaining.

Ideas – but the list is endless

have a space day or even just a massage, pedi, mani or facial that you’ve always wanted to experience (male or female like why not??!)

cooking class

art class

painting class

spend an entire day at the beach

go to the park for a picnic

play pickle ball (or any other sport)

learn a second language

go out for lunch in that cafe you keep seeing

go to an art museum

sky dive (ok that might be extreme but why not??)

hot air balloon ride

take that trip you’ve always wanted to

try some food you’ve never tried (the list there could be endless)

got waxed – male or female

play an instrument

go for a long walk in nature

get some energy work done

have a reading by a psychic

talk to a stranger

take some pet supplies to the animal shelter

take food to the homeless

I could go on………..if not now, why?

The only time there is, is Now!

Create a fantastic magical day!!

This one is called Let Go

When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone?

Or just let your mind wonder off into dreams, other possibilities, been playful or had that childlike sense of wonder……….

What if………???

This one is called The Box

The box represents mediocrity, conformity and security,

all illusions.

The truth is,

You were never born to be in a box,

break free and listen to your heart,

it’s knows the truth of you!

This one I call Searching

Whatever you are searching for,

including the magic,

is already inside of you.

Just learn to lean into it,

hear it,

trust it

and it’s not from your head!

After surrendering yesterday, I woke up today more energized and wanted to work on a new image

here it is, it is called The Dance

Letting go of what we think we know

After surrendering yesterday, I came up with a different image than what I had started on.

I call it Thto dance in the unknown,

is where the magical and mystical lies.

Will you dance there?

this one is called Self Love

I had several ideas and thoughts around this one, yet this is what felt right.

We cultivate Self Love when we acknowledge and accept the good, bad and the ugly within us  – there really isn’t that, yet it’s our judgments of it and programs we are running.

Self Love is one of the most important ways of being and living we need to strive for.

That is where the magic is!

This one is called Flow.

Yesterday I got a reminder of that big time.

I was working on an image, with not a clear intention of exactly how I wanted the end to loo, but I was getting frustrated, things weren’t going smoothly or shall I say – in the ‘flow’.

Once I became aware of how I was feeling, I stepped back, let it go, did some breath work, went for a nice bike ride and ran some errands.

Came back and looked at it and I wasn’t excited by it.

I totally surrendered  and got inspiration for another photo to create – Day 10.

I followed the energy there of excitement, creativity and fun.

These are some of the signs and clues we need to pay attention to so we can either be in the flow in our life or making it harder by going against the stream.

Trust me, I know the harder way and that just doesn’t work for me any longer!

What about for you – flow or upstream?

Life is more fun and magical when it’s in the flow!

I love stretching myself and this challenge for me was that in learning and creating art.

This one is called

The Light is Within

We don’t need to steal light from anyone or anything, it’s all within each one of us.

We are all born with an unique vibrational frequency, we weren’t meant to fit in or be the same.

When we tap into our strengths, what brings us joy, what we love to do, from our heart then we shine brighter.

It’s true.

We glow, we have passion, we love life and ourselves more.

All the past, the old stories, the things we did we’re not proud of, let them go – it’s over.

Shine your light – from within!

Jodi
