Energy is Always Moving

 

If Everything IS Energy, and Energy is constantly moving, maybe there is more than meets the eye between the seen and unseen……….

Food for Thought!

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!

The cyclone derives it’s power from a calm centre.

So does a person!!

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

Perspective

Creativity is not linear,

Imagination is not linear,

Intuition is not linear,

Passion is not linear,

neither is pure Love,

judgment, conformity, competition, anger and hatred are.

Each day is a fresh day – a new canvas,

based on our perspectives,

where we get to choose,

what do you choose?

This image will be in the store soon for sale, but you can check out the others one there now.

 

Nature’s Hues

Nature shows us many hues from her palette.

All colours.

She freely expresses herself deep from within her Soul.

Yes, she is a Soul too!

A person said to me once that a sunset is just a sunset, you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.

I wonder what kind of life they lead.

That is just an interesting perspective.

Live life like it’s a piece of artwork as no two are the same!

New Site

Hello

I know, it’s been while but great things have been happening!!  I took a little break from posting and have had my site updated and totally transformed into Art Photography, something I’ve been dreaming about for awhile.  I decided it was time to take the dive!

Well, and it’s been a Soul urging to truly align and follow my heart and not keep saying one day!

I’ve started playing with Impressionistic and ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) and I am hooked and having so much fun!

Take a look on my new site of the Impressionistic. You can also check out the other Galleries here.

I love the freedom, the curiosity, the creativity, having to trust the process (as one never knows) and allowing myself to much more playful!

It leaves me feeling such Joy.

I love feeling Joy!

It made me ask, who told us to stop dreaming, grow up and be serious?

And why?

Do what brings you Joy s often as possible, that is where magic lies!

Joyfully 🙂

Lake Chapala Sunset

Watch more sunsets than Netflix!

     – unknown

I am learning to start painting with my camera – this was last nights sunset, which was rather different even shooting normal!

I never get tired of seeing sunsets.

No 2 are ever alike.

How often do you stop and watch the sunset and see nature creating beauty??

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 The Ride

If you could float away in a hot air balloon,

Where would you go?

Who would you ask to join?

What would you see?

When would you go?
