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.

Doing Thing That Bring YOU Joy is Higher Vibe Living!!

 

Be the type of energy that no matter where you go, you always add value to the space and lives around you.

     –  unknown

Whatever is good for your Soul – or your Soul loves…….do that!!

Vibrate so high that toxic people and things in your life fall away because they no longer are a match!!

     –  Jodi Burke

Positive Mind

Positive Vibes

Positive Life!!

 

ok so what are Vibes anyways you may be thinking and what are Higher Vibes?

If we come from the perspective that Everything IS Energy and well it is – then everything has a vibration or a frequency.  It’s like radio waves – we can’t see it yet we know its there.  When we start tuning into things more we can sense or even feel different frequencies or vibrations.  We are doing it all the time yet for the most part unconsciously – you know you just feel something about a place or person sometimes – you can’t put a finger on it yet it feels off……trust it.

It doesn’t necessarily mean that place or person or whatever is bad – it just may not be for you or the right time – make sense?

www.jodiburke.com

Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe

What is Higher Vibe Living?

Well, if Everything IS Energy……and it is 🙂 – then everything we think, feel, say, do and eat all vibrates at different frequencies.

EVERYTHING

So what are you choosing in your reality?

www.jodiburke.com

Cups of Fresh Fruit in Mexico

Processed, chemical laden, fast food, pop or microwaved low vibing foods or lots of fresh water (not sold in plastic bottles btw) real, grown in sunlight, nutrient dense high vibing foods?

Angr, hatred, judgment and criticism of self and others or love, self love, body love, joy and gratitude? Low vibes vs High vibes.

Thoughts of hating to go to the job that you have or doing what you have to do to get by or thoughts of living and doing what brings you joy and surround yourself with people that are your tribe – as they are the same vibe 🙂 – even if the first part has to be for right now ( I get bills have to be paid)? Low vibes vs High Vibes.

www.jodiburke.com

A lady in Mexico cutting Cactus Leaves

Watching tv shows, lots of movies or always on the computer or phone with little to no exercise, body movement or fresh air – to spending time away form electronics and technology, time in nature – especially with shoes off when you can (great for grounding and healing), forms of body movement like Yoga or Tai Chi, walking, hiking, deep breathing or meditating?  Low vibes vs High vibes.

www.jodiburke.com

Ahhh The Old Days when You Could Leave Your Phone at Home!

Is there always some drama or trauma going on in your life or is there mostly ease, flow and peace?

Are you getting the idea now?

It all starts with ourselves – Love who are you in this moment and where you are at and know that each moment is a fresh moment and you get to choose – maybe you will choose something new or different this time.

As the Past doe not equal the Future!!

Create a High Vibing Day – you just may never go back!!

A Different Perspective

A Different Perspective

www.jodiburke.com

Do you view things, people, situations from different perspectives or no?

Good and Bad are just different perspectives.  The truth is nothing.

     –  Bhavesh Chhatbar

Remember, perspective can cause 2 people to look at the same thing and see 2 totally different things.

     –  Gail Lynne Goodwin

Sometimes the only reason for us to be somewhere else is to see things from a different perspective!

     –  Leila Summers

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.

Ana – One of the Yogi’s from Why We do Yoga book

I was in Yoga class yesterday with the awesome Ana from the Drishti Centre in Mexico and she used the analogy of comparing Photography with Yoga – interesting concept.

Lets take a different perspective even outside the class in every day life and situations.

 

If for example, on my camera I only use a 50mm lens – then I tend to miss out on much.  I either need possibly a macro lens for close ups to really get a better picture of what I am seeing or a telephoto so I can get like a bird’s eye view of things and no so much detail.

www.jodiburke.com

Street in New Orleans

Purposely for a few years I went and got several Prime lenses – 35mm (wide angle) 50mm (every day) and an 85mm lens (good for portraits) – I still had my telephoto lenses but I focused on using these as if I wanted to really see or get a different photo aka perspective I had to move around – I had to be willing to be flexible and try and see things differently.

www.jodiburke.com

Close up – Different Perspective

Yes one can stand there with their zoom lens and zoom in and out but they don’t have to move their body so it’s not as effective as truly looking with your eyes and moving around to get different views.

Since travelling I use one lens – yet since using Primes a few years ago I move my body still to get different angels, different lighting and I have even laid down to get a shot or climbed a tree – I am willing to be flexible.

www.jodiburke.com

Close up Perspective

In Yoga classes – I can go to 4 classes of Ana’s a week and I never get the same class – sometimes Yin with Yang mixed in, sometimes Hatha, even Vinyasa – and it all helps me to be present in the moment, surrender and be open and they are always awesome classes – sometimes easy and other times kick ass!

www.jodiburke.com

Wider Perspective Can be Good

What is your perspective on things – could it be more open? Flexible? Not only in life yet also with Yoga – don’t come to conclusions or judgments – life flows better that way!!

Great article on Yoga and DNA which I am diving deeper into – boy have they kept much from us!!

Chances are if you are reading this and you live anywhere in North America you haven’t heard of Uranta…….yet!!

If you know me or have been following me then you know what I put in and on my body in all forms is important – healthy!

So…….what is Uranta? (if you are shopping from the USA – you can switch that to reflect in the upper right hand corner)

www.jodiburke.com

Uranta – Different backs on many tops

Uranta is beautiful clothing – made out of natural fibres, comfortable, beautifully designed with amazing owners.  Since finding Uranta I practically live in the clothes!!

The prices are awesome BUT the best part is this co helps employ single moms and people in the community – which desperately needs it.  Also, as I mentioned in an earlier post Uranta started the drumming project for Gr’s 1 – 8 at one school and are hoping to branch out to several more schools – so 7% of every sale goes to this project – BIG Win Win!!

I am so usd to being on the other side of the camera lol

You can order directly through this link – yes it’s affiliate and if you want to become an affiliate and carry these great clothes in your Yoga studio, spa, healing clinic, store or out of you home in North America you can do that now!!

The Heart Doesn’t Lie – it doesn’t know how to!

as it speaks the truth!!!

 

 

 ‘Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, They somehow already know what you truly want to become.’

Whatever is good for your Soul – do that!

 

Your Heart is Free – have the courage to follow it!!

 

If you don’t follow your heart – you may spend the rest of your life wishing you had!

The worse battle is between what you know and what you feel.

 

So again – don’t follow the rules – follow your heart!!

Internal Peace is Beauty

Quite the mind and the Soul will speak.

A quite mind is able to hear intuition over fear.

Silence isn’t empty – it’s full of answers.

The quiet ones are the most observant – we know more than you realize.

You have the answer – just get quiet enough to hear it!!

It’s Been a Year!!

It’s Been a Year!!

www.jodiburke.com

What a Year!!

Wow – It’s been a year!!

It was 1 year ago today I arrived in Mexico to do my first out of the country house sit.

www.jodiburke.com

Vancouver, BC

I took the red eye out of Vancouver leaving behind snow and ice – first time I saw snow stay in Vancouver for more than a day or two – little did I know at that time the snow would only continue coming big time over the next few months.

www.jodiburke.com

Mexico

Within my first 10 days of arriving in Mexico I had my birthday, had to put my dog down – while my best friend and father of my kids held the phone so I could talk to Spirit as he transition, then next my relationship of over 21/2 years came to an abrupt end.

www.jodiburke.com

Spirit

 

It was like my Soul wanted growth with no distractions – I didn’t know a soul in Mexico, couldn’t speak the language and had a little dog and cat to look after.

 

Fast forward a year now and the growth, healing, experiences, people I’ve met, things I’ve done, the programming and ways of being and earning an income that I’ve let go of was nothing I was thinking was going to happen when I came to Mexico – yet I was open to new experiences………I need to be really clear from now on! 🙂

 

I realized I truly wasn’t on the right path……I still had deeper work to do, experiences to experience on my own, people to meet, projects to start and reignite, places to see and photograph, journeys to take and to become more aware of energies and programs I was still running that weren’t serving me.

www.jodiburke.com

Havana, Cuba

I went to Cuba and walked over 100 miles in less than 8 days and have over 2000 images that I shot while there.  I did Yoga teacher training, spent many hours doing Yoga and walking the beach meditating, participated in Temezcals (Mexican Sweat Lodges), created a Why We do Yoga book with over 60 Yogis on Amazon and did a lot of soul searching on my own.

www.whywedoyoga.com

Why We do Yoga – on my blog & Amazon

 

In sharing all of that I want to extend a huge shout out to my friends that held space for me to process things and emotions – you know who you are, I am so eternally grateful and I love you!! Also had some amazing healers that helped me move thru things much faster – I love Energy Healing Modalities – all I can say is they work and work well.  Alina and Kare did Emotion code with me – you can find out more about it here or watch the documentary E-motion.  Neither has a website up yet but if you want to experience a session reach out to me and I can give you their contact info – they are both amazing!.  I did a Soul Retrevial with Jodi Parker who is someone I adore as she walks her talk and is very good at what she does –which is several things but you have to experience one of her sessions! Her site is Higher Living Journey.  Another person who I adore and is also very gifted at what she does is Sandra Wagman Sargeant – she has been reading for me for years and her readings are usually bang on! You can find out more about her and her readings at Readings with a Twist . All ladies work with anyone anywhere – love technology!!

Wow what a year it’s been.

No it was not always fun – but yet oh so worth it!!!

 

I also have had many amazing moments as well!!

www.jodiburke.com

Sunshine Coast, BC

 

And I just got back from spending 6 weeks in Canada – not the right time of year I agree but it’s how timing works sometimes.  I did some photo shoots for friends, my project, learn to connect with Spirit (no not my dog 🙂 but he did come in), saw many dear people (alive :)), released more of my stuff to truly becoming a nomad (and sad to say some people too yet it’s all good) – that happens when you just are not vibrating at the same level any longer.

It was cold oh so cold for me which makes me appreciate being back in Mexico even more so despite it being cold here right now  too – it’s still warmer than Canada!! Lol

 

And I just started another house sitting gig with my original person – now it’s not 1 dog and cat it’s 3 adorable little dogs.

 

I feel so blessed to what has happened, is happening and what is coming in 2018.

www.jodiburke.com

Greens & Superfoods!!!

Health and eating healthy will always be important to me, and I will always share as I do believe in superfoods (as you will see on my blog), live foods and more.  I had the privilege of photographing Troy and Sharon with their domes and towers and I am getting some towers – I think everyone could use these towers – we need to be growing our own foods!!  The info and link will be on my site soon if you want or know you should be growing your own food too!!

www.jodiburke.com

Growing Towers for Nutrient Dense Foods!

I’ve also dived into the crypto world big time – I have had Bitcoin for a couple of years and got educated on that big time but sat back – now I’ve jumped in much stronger and also highly encourage others to do so too!!  Reach out if you have questions or don’t know where to begin!

 

Living outside the box is more important to me than ever before.  My time in Canada and USA re-enforced that.  The stress I see people under, the prices, the politics and more.

For me that is not truly living my highest potential – as that is not my path.

 

What is calling me more than ever, what is truly wanting to be expressed now is a deepening within my own self to my true potential of living life to the fullest and one of those things is expressing the creativity from within that I’ve kept hidden for a long time and breaking free from self limiting programming especially around emotional eating.  I have always had a love for photography yet I put down my camera for many years – doesn’t matter now why but I did – and as you can see I have no ‘niche’ I enjoy capturing many moments……….just wait!! 🙂

www.jodiburke.com

What are Your Intentions?

2018 is going to be an amazing year.

 

I took a break from doing any posts as I was busy in Canada but also becoming much clearer on where I am headed and putting the final touches on my 21 Day Food & You program, with one more project in the works before I really dive back into the Raw, Naked and Beautiful project.

www.rawnakedandbeautiful.com

Raw, Naked & Beautiful – Real, Authentic & Whole

 

I know adventure, health, quantum physics, self love, art and photography are part of 2018 – and what I do love is working wherever I am as being the Sagg that I am my freedom is what is important to me.

 

How is 2018 looking for you?

 

Life is too short to be doing anything that does not bring you true joy and happiness.

 

We do create our lives – even when the shit hits the fan – it helps to show us who we aren’t or what no longer aligns with our true being – so take it as an opportunity for growth not to play the victim.

 

Thank you for stopping by, feel free to reach out with any questions or share this post!!

How You Love Yourself

How You Love Yourself 

www.jodiburke.com

Self Love – Say YES to YOU!!!

How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you.

Everything you are living is reflected back to you from your every day world.

Everything IS Energy – Consciousness is always there, yet we tend to forget it.

The more Self Love one can give themselves and be – the more love comes back to you.

Imagine a world where everyone is in the Vibration of Love – very different from ego, narcissistic, survival and abuse.

Live Free – Live Wild with integrity and non-attachment even if it looks different, peaceful and empowered!!

It starts with YOU – how much Self Love do you live in each day?

Why We do Yoga – Jessica Lusk

It’s true!  Why We Do Yoga is now available on Amazon kindle.  Later this year it will be out in hard copy and it’s also available on my site in ebook fashion!

My intention behind this book was to create great awareness of why we do, you do, one does Yoga.

I know for myself it has transformed over the years and I don’t think I truly came to the mat with the right intention, space or even attitude as I was a busy person and doing, doing, doing.  I wanted to truly get into a meditative state as I knew intuitively I needed it yet couldn’t get there.

As I have also shared it was such an honour to meet many of these Yogi’s, photograph them, talk with them, share stories or converse via email for ones further away – I have been touched by them all at a deep level.

How they shared their why’s and the pose they have chosen goes beyonds words – I keep hearing it’s touching people on a deeper level and opening their eyes up or wanting to go to the mat and go deeper in their practice or even start one!!

The first person who read the book and called me was the impact I was hoping this book would have – it made it all worth it even if it only touches one person!!

Yet I know it will touch many more!!

Here are a few from the book!

Why We do Yoga – Andrea Lewis

I do yoga to slow down my body and mind. As a type A person I am always on the go – from serving to training and coaching I am always moving my body – and my mind runs a long with it. Inner peace, appreciation and a heightened clarity is what yoga gifts me. Yin/Restorative yoga is my favourite.

Why We do Yoga – Gabe Azoulay

Yoga continues to make me feel connected to the world and inspires me to give back as much as I can. Whether sharing the physical benefits with practitioners or the confidence opportunities with aspiring yoga teachers, I feel honored and blessed that I discovered

this practice when I was 19.

Why We do Yoga – Deb Krejci

Yoga is the only thing that encompasses everything in one form of exercise for me.  It builds muscle, enhances stamina, physical rehabilitation of injuries, and stress reduction to name a few of the important benefits.  Plus, it makes you want to do better.  To be better.  To be the best version of you that you can be.  On and off the mat.  It’s the shit basically.

Why We do Yoga – Brian Clements

Yoga for me is my direct relationship with Source or Creator. This connection to source that I find in my breath is the most important, nourishing, self loving act throughout my day. In order for me to enjoy a clear and centered relationship with any one or anything else, my yoga practice is essential.

Why We do Yoga

Why We do Yoga came to me after a Temazcal one night in Mexico – Mexican sweat load ceremony.

After the ceremony and back home, I was sitting out on the patio in a chair hammock slowly moving around, it was dark and the stars were out, there was a gentle warm breeze on my skin and I could hear the  pounding of the waves in the distance.  Out of nowhere this idea came.

As I was in my teacher training I was asking myself it at a deeper level as well.  For me it started off as a personal journey – and it’s incredible how it fit into my life at the perfect time for what I was moving through.

www.jodiburke.com

Why We do Yoga

When I started doing some research on the internet I knew immediately why this came to me.

The Yoga matt is where many people – mostly women but men too, come to further judge, compare, beat themselves up – not good enough, can’t do that pose, I’m not wearing the right clothing, I’m not thin enough etc

We need to stop this insanity.

This is only a glimpse – my persceptive on why I do Yoga – you will hear many other reasons.

www.jodiburke.com

Why We do Yoga

For me now Yoga has become more – since deepening the connection with myself, my mind, body soul and breath.

Since that moment sitting out that night I started sharing this idea – this book – with other Yogi’s and they kept saying Yes to it, to be part of it!

We all have different journey’s, perspectives, lives, stories, beliefs and awareness and that is why I knew it needed to have as many Yogi’s share as possible.

I have had the incredible privilege to meet some of the most beautiful, amazing, heart centred and present Yogi’s / people since embarking on this project.

www.jodiburke.com

Why We do Yoga

I spent the last several days going through the photos that I have been able to shoot and capture some beautiful moments – for that alone I am honoured.  I have photographed over 50 Yogi’s and I then reached out to others who I knew would be a huge contribution to this book as well yet we were miles away.

Why We do Yoga is a book that will be out first in kindle format very soon like as in May!!

www.jodiburke.com

Why We do Yoga

My wish and hope is that through one of these amazing Yogi’s that a seed will be planted, a deeper understanding or awareness of of why you do do Yoga.

Maybe you don’t do Yoga – yet, maybe you do a little, maybe you do a lot – I promise you there will be something in this book for you!

Why We Do Yoga

Wow what a crazy few weeks!!

Mercury is in Retrograde and I decided to go back to Canada during this time -flying – travelling not always a great idea as I found out on my way back!  Lets just say I would never fly United Airlines again and letting others know it!!  Rude customer agents and over priced baggage fees!

My time is in Canada and USA was busy – gathering things together to come back down to Mexico for a longer stay, packing up things, visiting friends, playing with my dehydrator and making lots of crackers, cereal and a few other goodies and shooting Yogi’s for the book coming out very soon Why We Do Yoga.

www.jodiburke.com

Why We Do Yoga

It’s been an amazing venture to meet and be able to Photograph most of these Yogi’s – words cannot describe it!  I cannot wait to share the photos, the whys and more – it truly has inspired me even deeper – whether you do Yoga or not, or something that moves the body and bring you joy, awareness and a way to connect mind, body and spirit is what is essential.

We have become extremely disconnected and uncaring – I experienced it first hand at the Airport.

Now that I am grounded for a little while in Mexico I will be diving deeper into Yoga, consciousness, awareness, energy, manifesting, real and raw foods and more!.  I have no dehydrator here but I did an amazing deal on a juicer when I got back here and will be experimenting using the sun energy for dehydrating.

www.jodiburke.com

Quiet Time

I’ve already started my sprouts, kombucha and tomorrow will be raw sauerkraut.

Whether it’s food, thoughts, feelings or intentions – it’s all energy and it all matters or will create matter!

I am realizing that people and the world are waking up – we need to – our health and the planet is headed in the wrong direction for many.  It does not have to be hard, boring, confusing or taste bad.

We are powerful creators – we create everything in our lives and we are live beings who need to be eating more live or real foods!

I joke with people now and say – once you take the blue pill and you actually swallow it – life becomes very different!

Go for Peace as much as possible!

Can’t wait to share.

I hope you are having an amazing day and if not go find something or someone that brings you joy and move more into that vibration!!

Peace, Love & Consciousness
