This one is called Flow.

Yesterday I got a reminder of that big time.

I was working on an image, with not a clear intention of exactly how I wanted the end to loo, but I was getting frustrated, things weren’t going smoothly or shall I say – in the ‘flow’.

Once I became aware of how I was feeling, I stepped back, let it go, did some breath work, went for a nice bike ride and ran some errands.

Came back and looked at it and I wasn’t excited by it.

I totally surrendered  and got inspiration for another photo to create – Day 10.

I followed the energy there of excitement, creativity and fun.

These are some of the signs and clues we need to pay attention to so we can either be in the flow in our life or making it harder by going against the stream.

Trust me, I know the harder way and that just doesn’t work for me any longer!

What about for you – flow or upstream?

Life is more fun and magical when it’s in the flow!

Ok I have to be honest, I had to change the image I was working on as I was getting frustrated with the other one and that is not the energy I want to play and create in, even while learning new techniques!

I surrendered, for now and went on to have fun creating this one.

I am calling it – Found It

I found the roller and the magic paint for painting on the canvas – aka your life and creating it as a beautiful piece of art.

The roller is clear intentions.

The paint is a magical combination of joy, love, passion and gratitude for it all.

After all, we are all creating our lives.

So, if you’re painting with just a regular brush and paint,

why not upgrade them??

I missed posting yesterday yet the image was finished – honestly 🙂 – it’s expresses how I was feeling.

Somewhat in the dark, contracted yet allowing expression to come through in a different way.

During the process of peeling back old skin, stepping into new energies – aka being an artist  with a vision and a message – yet it’s new skin / energy for me, so I am still deprogramming from old ways of being, thinking and living.

I have learned to surrender, go within, meditate, journal, breath, cry, laugh, create and allow.

Not always easy, yet for me, when I do it, I come through even stronger after.

This time was big for me.

It is opening me up to a more expanded, deeper, more creative me.

Even though those moments seem dark, it’s ok to go within yet move the energy so you don’t stay stuck in that place.

For me, when I step into more of me, let go of old ways/energies that aren’t me, don’t serve me, it’s very INlightening and freeing.

Everything is energy, the more I honoured these times, the more awarenesses for me comes up to shift into new ways and higher vibrations which is why we are here and empowers us.

We were not meant to stay stuck, allow the flow.

We are more than we realize.

Even in the dark – the night, as in this photo – I put the moon as a reminder – there is light there too.

It is also a good time to get out of the head and into the heart.

It is also a long exposure photo, that was taken early in the morning for the soft water – for me that reminds me to breath – long, hold, let it go and that so helps move and shift energies.

And gets me out of my head!

Go breath today and walk in nature barefoot!

What did I call this one?

Light within the Dark.

It’s interesting to me, that I can finish an image and then several days later look at it and see things I would change or how it morphs into another meaning!

This one did that on both levels for me, yet I will still share it 🙂

Sometimes that is how life goes, as we grow, learn and expand.

I call this one Choose Self Love

I did a post recently on Facebook that I copied from another women about how much and how long we’ve spent hating ourselves, our bodies and our looks.  We have internal battles within ourselves and usually are beating ourself up for something.

We forget.

We are not our bodies.

We are much, much more than that!!

The time is now – as there only IS now.

When we choose love over anything else, moment by moment – fear, anger, doubt, judgment, hatred etc miracles can happen.

Love IS the highest Vibration and the truth of each one of us.

Yet it has to start within and for self.

So, give yourself a little more Love today,

As YOU are so worth it!!!

Look but don’t read the rest yet!! 🙂

This one is called A New Reality

 

 

For me, this represents no matter what is going on it life, the battles, the disappointments, the dramas, the ‘stories’, etc can be changed.

We just need a new perception, a new vibration, a new  / different story.

Don’t let those things define you.

You do have the power.

You’ve just forgotten.

It’s an awareness that you do have choice and it starts within!

What was I thinking when I got myself into this!!??

Just kidding 🙂

This one is called Dark Night of the Ego

For me it reflects life

There are good moments and bad,

and the bad may seem hard sometimes

but there is always the light,

it just takes a different perspective to see it!

That is what our Soul is asking!!

Change Your Perspective & See You In Everyone Else!

 

 every relationship was to reflect pieces back of yourself to yourself?
What you liked and what you didn’t like
you see in another
and what you see that you like you be more of
and what you see that you don’t like you look at what judgment, point of view or story
has got you triggered
so that you can let it go
and make more room for love
for yourself and another
because another is just a reflection of you.
Changes the perspective
doesn’t it??

Time to Start Unpacking

Time to Start Unpacking

www.jodiburke.com

Unpacking Isn’t Always Fun but it is soooo Worth It!!!

 

In life

and living

the choice is always ours

to whether or not to leave our baggage as is

or to unpack it

The baggage represents all our past hurts,

regrets, deceptions, traumas and more

They are over

done

except by holding on to the story

the energies stay alive

and hold you back

in so many ways

They may have been true

and even real

yet only in that moment

It’s the attachment that keeps

those energies alive

Yes it may have hurt you

frustrated you

angered you

disempowered you

belittled you

or more

Yet, that is not you!!

You are love at your core

and are part of Creation

it’s when we can forgive

and let go

is where the truth lies

and true healing occurs

Not always easy

trust me I know

Yet that will truly set you free

Free to be

Free to love

Free to feel

Alive again

The gift in all of that is

To have more of you!!

There is never a better time

to start unpacking than in the now…….
