No 2 Bodies are the Same – Love Yours No Matter What!!

Real Bodies are fat, and thin, and both and neither and otherwise.

     –  Hane Blank

There is no wrong way to have a body!

     –  Glenn Maria

You were born to be real not perfect!

Cuz You’re amazing just the way you are!!

 

The problem isn’t with your body – it’s what you think of it and what you think of yourself – true self love is thinking love, feeling love, being love and eating love………not fear, judgment, hatred, criticism, jealousy, processed food (and emotions) or abuse of any kind.

 

NO two bodies are the same!!

Choose Body Love!

 

This is a body hate free zone – remember – there is no perfect body only marketing and advertising that reminds you that you’re not good enough and then the self programming loop you keep running in your mind.  It’s time to tell it to f*&^ off – we have approximately 75 000 thoughts a day – most of which were the same that you thought yesterday, last week and probably last year.

It’s a program – delete it and reinstall one of self love and body love!!

The body is the only place your Soul has to live – so take care of it. Raw, Naked and Beautiful – Real, Authentic and Truth.

Eat Real

Live Well

Love Deeply

Laugh Often

Never Give up on Your Dreams

Remember – there is nothing wrong with your body but there is a lot wrong with the messages that try and convince you otherwise.

Let YOUR Light Shine

 

Don’t you know yet? It’s your light that lights the world!!

      -Rumi

Don’t let negativity and darkness dissolve your light!

Each time your embrace the truth of who you are, you bring a little more light into the world!

The Soul has no secret that the behaviour does not reveal.

Things that Keep us Locked Up

IN this game called life we have been fed many lies, for instance that our genes play a role in disease, weight etc but in fact they only play 1% of that role – the rest is environment.  In other words our genes adapt.  They are liquid crystals – anyone who loves crystals knows the properties of them – so in our bodies our genes our liquid crystals – totally programmable – so what are you programming them with??  They also affect our DNA – can’t wait to share more on that – mind blowing but fun!

 

Chemicals from foods and vaccines? Negative or low vibing emotions like stress, dread, judgments (of self and others) or fear etc, drugs,tv and news, little to no body movement, little to no connection with nature or sunshine…………I could go on

Do Yoga or some kind of Body Movement – Photo Credit Sandra Wagman

Eating real foods – that aren’t processed or full of chemicals, use more natural forms of healing like homeopathy, herbs, essential oils etc, live in emotions of much Gratitude, Love, Joy and Bliss as you are truly on your path and connected with your Soul and Source, walk, do Yoga or hike, bike etc, spend time in nature either walking, hiking or growing a garden as some examples and walk barefoot in nature – one of the best ways to ground ourselves – at least an hour – my excuse for walking the beach when I am near one!! 🙂

When we go back to the basics in all areas of our lives and spend some time breathing, quieting the mind or meditating (so little to no tv) laughing lots, hugging loved ones and having such an attitude of Gratitude for all in your life – we actually do bring in more light – it’s the truth of who we are.

We did not come down here to get hard lessons – we came down here to each remember who we are and to truly step into our own divinity and creatively express who we truly be at a Soul level – and play like it was recess most of the time……..seriously…….who wrote the rules telling us it had to be hard, stressed, enslaved, full of chemicals so that when you could retire then you could have fun???

You Aren’t Here to BE Like Everyone Else

Honour Life and it will honour you with more life – that is keeping things real – food, thoughts (anything not coming from Love is a BFFL) emotions (same as thoughts) and living your truth – that is how you can shine more light into the world.

Your Heart and Soul are the truth – are you able to hear them? Are you ready to step into the Light – your Light?

BE YOU – No Matter How it Looks to Others!!

If you are stressed, lost, confused, angry, not feeling well or healthy, or doing what you need to to pay the bills ( trust me I know all of these) then you have lost the connection………it’s never too late or too hard to re-connect!!

YOU deserve it – after all it is YOUR life!!

Much Love and Gratitde

You Body Hears it All

Everybody has a part of her body that she doesn’t like, but I’ve stopped complaining about mine because I don’t want to critique nature’s handiwork… My job is simply to allow the light to shine out of the masterpiece.

~ Alfre Woodard

 

If Everything IS Energy and it is – your body is the place the Soul calls home – it hears every word you speak and every thought you think – you will have this body the rest of your life – why make it a battle ground – why not love it the way it is??

 

Are you letting your light shine or hiding in the darkness – by darkness I mean self judgments, criticism, lies about not being good enough, think enough etc……….

 

We are all like Snowflakes – each one is different, unique and beautiful – why try to be like someone else – that is not why we are here!!

Remember who you are!!

Love Your Body!!

A little body love today!!

You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.”
Amy Bloom

“The human body is the best work of art.”
Jess C. Scott

“To lose confidence in one’s body is to lose confidence in oneself.”
Simone de Beauvoir

“How beautiful would it be if we could just see souls instead of bodies? To see love and compassion instead of curves.”
Karen Quan

“By choosing healthy over skinny you are choosing self-love over self-judgment. You are beautiful!”
Steve Maraboli

“Beauty shouldn’t be about changing yourself to achieve an ideal or be more socially acceptable. Real beauty, the interesting, truly pleasing kind, is about honoring the beauty within you and without you. It’s about knowing that someone else’s definition of pretty has no hold over you.”
Golda Poretsky

Nude Yoga on the Beach

 

I no longer look for the good in people, I search for the real……..

because good is often dressed in fake clothing, real is naked and proud no matter what the scars!!

                                                                    – Chishala Lishomwa

Nude Yoga on the beach is fun and freeing!

Clothing is over rated sometimes!!  Some of the best ‘real’ conversations I have had have been on the beach – nude beach that is – it seems the masks do come off 🙂 besides the clothing!

I am beginning to dislike small talk – I want to talk about life, death, sex, magic, consciousness, the universe, what makes your heart sing, the meaning of life, how to bend energy, unplugging from the matrix, what keeps you up at night, what makes you jump out of bed with a skip in your step, your insecurities, your fears, your loves, your battles, your triumphs…….I want real conversations with depth, meaning, passion, juiciness and aliveness.

What’s up or how you doing just doesn’t cut it anymore!!

How about you?

Raw, Naked and Beautiful – Real, Radiant and Truth

I was born many times before,

And yet my time with you is something new.

For you awaken in me a spirit

that was longing to be alive

waiting for your connection.

I thought I knew how to play safe and stay within the boundaries

Only to realize that was not so.

That truly was not what real loving and living were about.

Yet you were there all the time for me

even when I hated, judged and criticized.

Reunited and together

we walked and broke down

the illusionary walls of separation

after I whispered to my body softly

‘I want to be your lover, your friend’

to which my body replied after a long deep sigh

‘I have been waiting my whole life for this moment’.

Love yourself and your body like you do another.

Step Away from the Mean Voice

Step Away from the Mean Voice…

www.jodiburke.com

Let Go of the Old Ways of Thinking & Being!!

…and say bye-bye to feeling bad about your looks.

Are you ready to stop buying into the the programming, the lies, the judgments making us feel not physically adequate or good enough?

Are you ready to say good-bye to your inner critic, that inner voice, that self bondage that limits you and keeps you small and take the pledge to be kinder yourself?

This is a call – a call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous and to be self loving.

Transitioning from the Old Ways!! Photo – Sandra Wagman

It’s time to surrender to what is.

Waving the flag and surrounding – red symbolizes love – self love.

Are you ready?

Are you ready to look in the mirror and love all that is without judgment and criticism?

That is the first step in transforming your experience with yourself, your body and your life!!

Much Love

Jodi

Body Love

If it ain’t Love – it’s fragmented – Body Love!!

Your Body Loves You – Love it Back!!

Fall in Love with caring for YOURself – Body, Mind & Spirit.

Your mind is more powerful than you realize and it believes ALL that you put it – feed it with joy, with gratitude and most of all with love!

Your body hears it all!!

When we hate our bodies and beat ourselves up – it actually fragments us – we lose parts of ourselves – we are not whole – whole is loving ALL of ourselves including ALL of our bodies.

What is beauty?

Define it yourself – don’t buy into the media / advertising bullshit of you aren’t good enough – remember – we’re all like snowflakes – unique and beautiful in our own way – embrace it!!!

Loving your body just as it is – loving, accepting and knowing who you are – is how I define true beauty!!

It is also living from a higher vibration and consciousness!!

How do you define real beauty?

My first video on Higher Vibe Living!

I decided to create a short  video to share from my heart about moving in the direction of Higher Vibe Living – why and what it means to me and reaching out to women especially women who have and do struggle with emotional eating – it’s really the same behind any pattern or addiction to  degree.

Since it is easier to share in words than writing from my heart I will start doing more vids – never thought I would!!  Yet I still will do my photography as I so enjoy that!!

Please feel free to leave a comment or share!

Have a fantastic day!!
