Joyful Living

 

Hey

Yes it’s been awhile since I have posted – my blog has a new look!!

I have been travelling down in Mexico – which you may know from my posts, going through major transition and transformation and now in Yoga Teacher Training so life has been interesting and intense to say the least!!!

YOGA

After reflecting and taking some time, enjoying the sun and beach, doing yoga, much deep inner personal work, diving into new areas that are rocking my world like Quantum Physics and playing with the field, understanding energy, breath work and consciousness better –  I knew my life was heading in a new direction.  A direction that got me energized and jazzed like never before!

Therefore new energy – higher vibrational energy – clearer energy – conscious energy – my life will never be the same – so my blog had to take a new look as well.

I am so excited at what is happening and coming down the pipeline – this time has given me a chance to really look within to see what is calling me, who I truly be, what sets my soul on fire and how I can contribute to a better place here on planet earth and I want to share it.

A lot of this stuff has not been new to me, I have been learning it and dabbling in it off and on for years BUT never fully embodying it and having it all click so effortlessly – all that reading, watching, learning, attending workshops, seminars etc finally paid off in a very big way!

I have been meeting some incredible people, seeing some amazing things, learning, expanding my consciousness, digging deep into personal growth, raising my vibration, clearing even more old beliefs and patterns and eating really healthy (even more so than usual :)) – once you start down this path you can never turn back.  At times it’s friggin hard or so it seems but then break throughs happen and you can’t put a price tag on those, it is worth every second of it!

Along with my new blog there will be new programs that will be up shortly, more photography, posts, inspiration, fun, recipes, and things to challenge your thoughts, beliefs and the way you are creating your life and living.

2017 did not get off on a great start for me – yet when I reflect back on it it challenged me to truly step into me, the real authentic me who has been there all along she just got put on the side waiting and now she is front and center.

Early Morning Tranquility

My life and learning has been a journey that I have taken me to where I am today, which is so different to where I was 2 years ago, 1 year ago or even 4 months ago – I feel like I am a totally different person. I am ready  to guide and assist others who have been struggling with similar things – to list a few – emotional eating, low self worth, non-supportive belief systems, inauthentic being to help them re-connect with their true, authentic selves, to be the catalysts for people’s awakening as it’s not what you think.  My life has been my training (and oh so much more) and my wish is to help others in a much shorter time line!!

We are creating our realities each moment– are you enjoying what you are creating and living?

If not stay tuned and keep coming back – I promise you – you won’t be disappointed!!

The rest of 2017 is on it’s way to becoming an amazing year for me that will be filled with many great moments, people, experiences, growth, health, vitality and abundance – I hope it will be for you too!!

Much Love

Jodi

Soul Journ

The start of the Soul Journ

Today is my daughter’s and step sister’s  – excuse me – my sister from another mister…..birthdays.  Kesley turns 21 years old and is somewhere out in the ocean.  She left last week to head to Sydney Australia where she is working on a cruise line between Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and Asia……..pretty cool!

My son has been travelling for the past 3 months over in Vietnam, Cambodia, Bali and is going to Australia this week where he will meet up with my parents and spend Christmas with them and my brother and his family who live there.

Me – first time out of North America I am embarrassed today but get to spend my 51st birth day where it’s hot and Christmas……..it will be new, exciting, different and possibly moments of loneliness being solo at this time.

All good!

It’s a bit of an attitude right now that it’s all about me………..:)  ok not totally but you get the idea!

Stepping Away from the Crowd is Ok!

 

I am a Saggattarian at heart – we love our freedom and travel and what I have learned about my sign, and my type and profile through Human Design is so me to the core smooch so it was like I finally found something that could explain who I am better than I could lol

This has been calling me at a Soul level…….that whispering, that urging, that internal desire.

Part of this Soul Journ is about adventure and travel yet also getting to know me so much deeper and intimate – no distractions and to study Yoga and Human Design as I will be offering that service soon – I feel it is a big missing piece for many people who want to understand themselves more, know their path, their truth or why maybe things have not been working for them.

I also want to know how others eat and eat healthy and how I can too outside what North America considers ‘healthy’ and try different foods!

I know in my heart I am a highly creative person yet I have not been able to truly express that – sometimes getting caught up in survival mode (as I did as a single mom) or trying to fit into a society where some of us aren’t truly designed for – it was a breath of fresh air to really realize that and be ok with it!!  I can’t wait to be photographing my journey and what I am seeing – and sharing it for the pleasure of just doing it!

The road less travelled!

Life is too short and after the 3 road trips prepping me :)……..the spark was re-ignited and it’s time!

I can’t wait to share some of my journey and many photos as this Soul Journ could be 6 weeks, 6 months or…………..

It’s all about being in the moment, trusting and growing!!

Off to catch a plane now!

The Winding Road

 

 

After a long embrace and the tender parting of a soft kiss, holding back tears we said so long for now and I got into my car and drove away.

Just like the beginning of the drive down a road of twists and turns as it ran along side a fast running river into the mountains to climb high through the mountain pass – my emotions were dancing a similar dance.

An incredible amazing journey of four months with 11 weeks of it  travelling through 17 states and 7000 miles later my time in the USA had come to an end with an openness of when our next time was.  We had always known when the next time would be but not this time.

On top of those emotions was the Supermoon and it’s energies and an energy of one situation that was creating tension and separation.

For me personally, last week was an intense, emotional week that challenged me on many levels of my thinking, loving and being.

I realize once you go down the path of personal growth towards a higher consciousness, there is no turning back – dammit!!

It’s when in the fire I wish sometimes I could have chosen an unconscious life this time, yet at the same time I know once I move through the fire – the other side is worth every moment of the intensity!!

That is the one thing we must learn and embrace is that everything constantly changes.  That everything is Energy and Energy never sits still – it’s always in motion.  We are beings that think too much, love too little, take little responsibility for our choices and live at status quo which is mediocrity filled with much fear and worry today.

Fear and worries of who and how the new president will handle things – and I’m Canadian and we talk about this stuff!  So much fear on the news, worries about job layoffs and so on.

We are realizing the systems are broke and we can’t keep hanging onto old ways of living, feeling (or not), and being!

Old Abandoned House – Like some Emotions Should Be!

We are tapping into the universal collective, so when something like the supermoon comes it intensifies and if one is open to doing the work, huge growth and potential can come out of it.  It will illuminate your darkest corners, you shadow sides so that you can have a look at it and transmute it so that there is more light.  The world needs more light right now in a big way.

So don’t be afraid to go look at your stuff.  Learn how to move the energy, transmute the lower vibrations of fear, worry etc back to love.

Many ways one can do this – journalling, EFT or any modality that resonates with you.  Stop listening and watching all the fake news as that is controlled too.  Start by going inside of you – breathing, meditating, movement, journalling and listen, really listen in to what your heart is sharing with you.  Stop listening to the status quo.

Trust YOUR inner voice no matter what!

Don’t shy away from any patterns, beliefs or wounds you may have endured as we all have!

We are here or should be here to support one another through challenging times so we can raise all of ourselves into a healthier, higher collective consciousness.

I am so grateful that I had some amazing friends in my life that held the space for me this past week as I dove into my feelings – something that has never been easy for me.  One of the major things with an eating disorder is not wanting to feel – not wanting to be in the body as life has been painful, so we stuff it down, those feelings with food as a distractor.

From the Darkness and Clouds emerges the Light

 

All negative feelings and emotions just want to be seen so that they can leave and once you do it and keep doing it, it’s incredible how much lighter, freer and more joyful you can become.

So honour where you are at, ask for help, journal, take a hot bath, go for a walk in nature, ok I’ll be honest – I stomped through the rainforest dropping some F bombs 🙂 whatever works (as long as it doesn’t hurt you or someone else) – breath deep, cry and most of all don’t judge yourself, allow yourself the time to move thru this.

Remember, if you are too busy to do it when an emotion comes up and you keep surpressing them, then it will manifest in the body as some sort of pain or disease – remember – we are energy, the body, mind and soul ARE connected and we are in the dense third dimension but we can become much lighter!!

Since moving through some of that dark energy I will call it or intense feelings I have come out with more clarity, more self awareness and love as I embark on this new chapter in my life.

Great many things will be happening and I can’t wait to post and photograph them!!

That my friend is part of Vibrant Living!!

Going Within – No matter what!

 

Beliefs

Beliefs

Beliefs

Beleifs

Your conscious desires and your subconscious expectations must align – if they don’t you could have subconscious beliefs that are working against you  – in any area of your life.

Ask yourself 3 questions:

1 – What do I want?

2 – What do I have?

3 – WHat thoughts or feelings must I have to create what I did?

Then knock anything out that doesn’t support you having your goals!!

Make it a great day!!

I went and had some fun at Italian Day where there was lots of music, food, sport cars and people!!

In the Moment

You cannot hang out with negative people and expect to live a positive life. – Joel Osteen

Part of being positive is being present as the present moment is all we have!!

Making a big life change can be scary – you know what is even scarier – REGRET!

Have a great day!!

The Past Doesn’t Have to Equal the Future

The Past Doesn’t Have to Equal the Future

equal the future

Many of us seem to get stuck in repeated patterns whether they serve us or not – believe me I know!!!  We sometimes don’t think we can change, are resistant to change, don’t know how to change or where to begin.

I found this story and thought I would share it as I think it’s quite interesting on how easy we do become programmed.

During a research experiment a marine biologist placed a shark into a large holding tank and then released several small bait fish into the tank.

As you would expect, the shark quickly swam around the tank, attacked and ate the smaller fish.

The marine biologist then inserted a strong piece of clear fiberglass into the tank, creating two separate partitions. She then put the shark on one side of the fiberglass and a new set of bait fish on the other.

Again, the shark quickly attacked.  This time, however, the shark slammed into the fiberglass divider and bounced off.  Undeterred, the shark kept repeating this behavior every few minutes to no avail.  Meanwhile, the bait fish swam around unharmed in the second partition.  Eventually, about an hour into the experiment, the shark gave up.

This experiment was repeated several dozen times over the next few weeks.  Each time, the shark got less aggressive and made fewer attempts to attack the bait fish, until eventually the shark got tired of hitting the fiberglass divider and simply stopped attacking altogether.

The marine biologist then removed the fiberglass divider, but the shark didn’t attack.  The shark was trained to believe a barrier existed between it and the bait fish, so the bait fish swam wherever they wished, free from harm.

The moral:  Many of us, after experiencing setbacks and failures, emotionally give up and stop trying. Like the shark in the story, we believe that because we were unsuccessful in the past, we will always be unsuccessful. In other words, we continue to see a barrier in our heads, even when no ‘real’ barrier exists between where we are and where we want to go.

BUT people have changed or turned their lives around and if people have done it so can you – are you ready??

Please leave a comment of feel free to share this and have an amazing day!!

PS Just an FYI – EPX stands for Epigentics – the Past Does Not Equal the Future – how cool is that??

Has that happened to you??

New Beginnings

Have you ever really had to look at your life and have an honest hard to hard talk with yourself about what is working or not working in your life??

No matter what area?

Whether it be business, money, relationship, where or how you are living, career or job?

Or have you put your head in the sand hoping things will change or accepting this as the way things are and you are powerless to change it?

Really?

What is the definition of insanity?

Keep doing the same things over and over and expecting different results or things to change………..

Do you know whatever it is in your life that YOU and only you have created it?

I know the first time someone said that to me I said ‘You got to be kidding me, really?? I created this shit??  I don’t think so, cause I would have created something better!!’

But you know what?

I did create it and once I really accepted that, well….lets say I then could create something better.

Isn’t it time to let go of the old, the things not working, or the things that you don’t desire to have in your life – no matter what??!!

You ready??

Make it a great day!!!!
