Is Reality Just an Illusion?

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

They say that reality is nothing but an illusion,

What if it is?

What and how are you creating??

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!!

Dancing in Antigua – Cause I Could!

Since going through my 30 Days of Photos, I wanted to say a thank you to all who were part of it too!! (or not :))

I took a little break this past week as even though it was a good self challenge, I did spend a lot of time on the computer – needed a little more nature plus have been diving into some cool new expressions of how I would like to do more shooting and editing – so new stuff coming up!!

I learned, grew and expanded during this 30 days process and now I would like to take that further, after all we are talking art here – and life 🙂

I have posted all the 30 photos in this post – on Thursday I will be picking 2 winners – to receive a print of their choice (from here or my site – 11 x 14).

In order to qualify –  leave a comment on the post in  my FB page – share  which image you like, like the page and share.

Easy and greatly appreciated!!

I so look forward sharing more creativity!!

it was created for fun and to see if I could – all about learning new skills

but

What IF……

That is what is so cool about imagination!!

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 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?

Jodi

I call this one Be Open

We all go through dark times or unpleasant times, when we least expect it,

the light shines and a solution or a new perspective can appear,

especially when we least expect it!

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!
