The Ocean

The Ocean

The Ocean

WE, as HUman BEings are all droplets of water and the ocean is the Infinite Awareness (Creator, Source, IA etc)
When the droplet connects with the ocean where does the droplet end and the ocean start?

It’s called Oneness and Infinite Love.

We ARE all connected.

It’s time to remember the truth of who we BE!

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!!!

2020

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!!

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

PS – There are also some great FREE EFT books – from when I worked with clients and taught EFT, so make sure you grab some copies of those as EFT is a great resource for self healing!

Also kindle books are available here.

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.

-Jodi

This piece will be on my site soon – I love painting with my camera and using nature’s palettes!!

Reality

www.jodiburke.com

Is Reality Just an Illusion?

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

They say that reality is nothing but an illusion,

What if it is?

What and how are you creating??

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 was taken in the garden – it’s a piece of nature.

So much beauty, aliveness and abundance in nature.

When was the last time you spent time in nature, no phones etc, observing, being quiet

and possibly even barefoot – which is very grounding and healing!

It’s called The Fan

I called this one Being Rooted

Its about what are we being rooted in.

When we aren’t rooted in energies of being our truth, being authentic or being from our heart – love, then we are rooted in masks, programs and distortions.

It’s when we lose ourself.

It’s a change in being which is a change in energy therefore vibration.

We can choose new roots!

This one is called Stardust

They say we come from Stardust……..

who knows

but maybe that is why there are so many stars in the sky and we weren’t meant to be

like one another,

oh, and maybe then we also all have a little magic in us!!
