I Surrendered – Photo by Sandra Wagman

It’s been a little bit since I posted, I actually have been doing some cleansing – physically, emotionally and therefore spiritually as well.

I went down to Florida for 2 weeks and while I was there, everything I ate felt like 3 bagels in the stomach – so my digestion was off and so was my elimination – it didn’t feel good.  No matter what I ate – or did (as in exercise) it didn’t help.

Not are what it was, I have a feeling it could have been the  GMO’s I am not used to and completely forgot my Biome (from Purium that combos Gylphosate and GMO’s in the stomach) as I don’t need it in Mexico – I will certainly bring it next time!!

It Can Seem Hard so You Keep Looking Back Photo Credit – Sandra Wagman

So when I returned to Mexico I just knew it was time for a spring cleanse, I felt out of sorts, bloated, grumpy a tad and tired – your body gives you clues when things are off.  Since I know when one cleanses, it’s also an emotional detox – lets go big or stay home – I was ready!!

I have a book I bought a few years ago from Markus Rothkranz – heal Yourself and decided to do a 5 day cleanse but 3 day intense – water only with enemas (fast way to get toxins out and clean the colon)and showers – ok I cheated on those days I also did one green drink a day.  (again another Purium product one of my fav’s Green Spectrum – handy when juicing is not an option).  I also create structured water now in my Vitamix – very easy to do – magnets and water on for a couple of mins – it’s awesome!

A couple of days leading up and after were totally raw foods and very little – fruit and veggies only. It may seem hard once you start yet if you just take each moment, each day at a time – in moments it may seem hard yet when you focus on the end goal it helps to keep you moving forward knowing there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.

There is Always Light When One Looks for It & it turns out to be even Better than Imagined!

I also did Yoga and breath work very day – Yoga and breathing are great tools for anyone who suffers from Emotional Eating especially Yin Yoga – it slows you down, you feel your body therefore you are in it and it helps to connect you with your breath allowing you to be present – it gets one out of their heads.

Wow what a difference – I felt so good at the end – I listened to my body if it wanted down time but to be honest it kept feeling more energized – probably because of incorporating enemas and I was also doing emotional clearing on things that came up or things in my past I had no resolved.

Lighter, freer, happier, calmer and more clarity of thinking  – oh my the things that have been coming to me is amazing!!

My intuition is picking up so is my creativity again. 🙂

I know it’s still winter where some of you may be yet when spring is really finally there I highly recommend a spring cleaning – your body will love you for it – it’s like a spring cleaning for the house, car or garden!!

A couple of things that I am adding in more and more of is Probiotics – my favs are raw sauerkraut – easy to mix into salads, guacamole, or on the side, Kombucha – yummy and I’ve just started with kefir water and am experimenting with coconut – I’ll keep you posted.

Here is an amazing video by Sasha Stone – The Death of Mortality – you will want to watch!!

Happy to be back  as I have much to share – as once you go down the rabbit hole you have to keep going!!

The movie The Matrix gave us a lot of clues.

The Magic and Miracles are starting!!

All Bodies Need Cleaning – What My Tummy Felt Like

My Soul Wanted Growth

My Soul Wanted Growth

My Soul Wanted Growth……..have you ever been in a situation that maybe didn’t make sense to you at the time but looking back on it later the clarity is more vivid?

www.jodiburke.com

Yes Yoga especially Yin has been a big part of my healing and growth

 

In December when I came down to Mexico to house sit, in the first 2 weeks I was here I had to 2 scenarios that altered my life, my direction I was going and honestly brought me to my knees.

I was in Mexico – didn’t know a soul, couldn’t speak the language and had to start going within, quieting the mind chatter, letting myself cry and feel the emotions I needed to (that is an upcoming post that I can’t wait to share how to move emotions through the body!!) – so interesting looking back how events unfolded (no matter how shitty they were) so I could truly step up!!

Ever get stuck in a prickly bush????

Plus I had some very amazing friends that held space for me even if it was over the phone – support network is good too – you guys know who you are and I am so grateful for you all!! xoxo

Things like that happen – whether emotionally or physically – yes even physically when we truly aren’t listening, paying attention or on the wrong path or we have distorted views – which most of us do or we would be enlightened.  It’s our Souls way of saying Wake up!!

Oldest Bar in New Orleans – oh if those walls could talk!!!

For many of us, myself included – it’s easy to take the victim role and tell our ‘story’ over and over and  ask questions like Why did this happen to me? What’s wrong with me? etc

www.jodiburke.com

Who wants to stay locked up in the past??? There is only NOW.

We don’t want to stay locked up in the past or old ways of being!

As we move along the path of becoming more Conscious and therefore taking responsibility for everything that happens in our life – cause after all we ARE the Creators of our lives – but we have been taught, programmed, dumbed down and lied to that we really aren’t in control and things just happen.

Bull shit!! 🙂

Thank goodness that Science is evolving and bridging with it Spirituality and yes crap doesn’t just happen to us – we create it into physical form from our thoughts, feelings and beliefs.  Hard do swallow sometimes I know.  Trust me I know, yet if everything is energy (and it is) and vibrates at different frequencies it shows us that we can and need to take responsibility IF we want different things, feelings and people inner lives.

When we take responsibility we ask different questions, we look at things, situations and people in our life as a reflection of our thoughts and beliefs – Nassim Haramein has shared his documented studies in the Connected Universe – I highly recommend watching it.  Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden and Dr. Joe Dispenza also have some amazing studies, facts and new ways of thinking AND being – I have learned lots!

With that being said, I have been diving in and out of Quantum Physics etc for a couple of years but couldn’t fully embody it.  When these events happened I knew I had to dive in and ask myself what was being reflected back to me and honestly be open to seeing things about myself I couldn’t or didn’t want to before!

What kind of energy was I vibrating (feeling), what were my thoughts, beliefs, patterns and how did I truly feel about myself.

Big Step Forward

I wanted to take a BIG leap forward! 🙂

I didn’t want to stay stuck and to keep telling the same story I wanted to move the energy!

I’ll be honest, wasn’t always easy – there were moments where I just wanted to go to the mall shopping (escaping some pain, going unconscious :)) and not deal with it but I knew the more I pushed through the layers of BS I would come out lighter and have more of me – the true authentic me.  It didn’t happen over night and I had to go through and re-experience some of it to truly embody the lessons and go deeper within.

Oh my!!!! The payoff has been worth it all.

Our true self is the essence of unconditional love, pure joy, bliss and gratitude – all the other things are just big fat fucking lies we tell ourselves from the stories we have created or have happened to us.

Higher Vibe Living and Being

Feeling the love even on a bad hair day with no make up – is also being vulnerable and authentic!

Growth is not always easy but I feel it’s worth every moment as when you are re-claiming more of you, living truly authentic, having much love for self and others, raising your vibration which allows for more consciousness.

Words cannot describe it at all – one has to experience it!

It’s NOT about being perfect – what is perfect? Who is perfect? Let go there is NO getting it right only evolution!

My world has opened up, new people and experiences have been coming in that have been amazing, my awareness has increased and my new path has been lit up – I can’t wait to share more (it’s like I am getting downloads ) as the world needs us to step into our true authentic selves and be the light and way showers for others – the more we do this is we re-claim our power and  self love then changes can be made here on planet earth like crazy!!

Know that whatever you are going through it’s only temporary and things can change fast – ask yourself better questions, what lesson can you learn, what do you need to see and how can you be more truthful with yourself – about ALL aspects of self.

We’ve all created stories, patterns and beliefs from our parents, teachers and society – not to make anyone wrong as everyone is doing the best they can but it’s time to tell different, more empowering, loving and intentional stories!

I will be sharing more tools, inspiration, thoughts and my journey AND reviving the Raw, Naked and Beautiful Project – Real, Authentic and Whole!!

www.jodiburke.com

When you embrace more of YOU – it’s very freeing!!

It’s time for many of us to step into ourselves and the lives we truly desire to live and create as it all starts within!!

I am so Grateful my Soul Wanted Growth – does yours?

Create a fantastic day!!!

Raising Your Vibration

Raising Your Vibration

Raising Your Vibration

What does raising your vibration mean to begin with!?

Everything is Energy – Science is proving that, Quantum Physics is proving that – from the chair you sit in, to the plate you eat off, the kind of food you do eat, the thoughts you think and the feelings you feel.

When we are in an emotional state – whether that be anger, frustration, love, joy, or gratitude as examples, they all have a different vibration.  Just like a Twinkie does to a Green Salad or a chair to a table, anger vs love – they are all different.  Some are denser than others 🙂

From Wikipedia

What is Vibration – a person’s emotional state, the atmosphere of a place, or the associations of an object, as communicated to and felt by others.

Now we do know that Love, Gratitude and Joy are higher vibrations – it’s been proven.

How does one get there if it’s not  a common state of being, have been having more crappy days than great days, dealing with a ton of stress or something along those lines so you just aren’t in a place of a higher vibrational state of being!

I want to share an exercise I did before and I did again last night – what an experience both times.

Last night I did it while I was doing Yin Yoga – so a 90 min session and I was listening to Bentinho Massaro doing some guided meditations of basically raising your state. (you can find him on Youtube – cool dude)  his exercise that I did before is really for at least 10 seconds for every minute think and feel amazing things about you, your life, your body, your being for 2 hours – set a timer and go – when I did it I couldn’t believe how fast the time went and how good I felt.

So through holding a Yoga pose (you don’t have to do Yin Yoga during this at all  – I just chose to – just don’t let yourself be distracted be fully present yet relaxed).  I kept my focus on my breath – nice long and deep breathing and keep engaging in feeling different feelings to start training my body to embody them more often – love, gratitude, excitement, creativity, empowerment, abundance, courage etc

I felt like for awhile I was almost in an altered state – it felt friggin awesome!!

Sometimes the simple things of slowing down, being present connecting with out breath, getting out of our mind and learning to embody new ways of feeling can be life changing – everything is energy and energy is powerful……..when used correctly!!  We can create more by doing that then running around being busy trying to do, do, do.

We are walking antenna’s that helps to find tune the station better and to adjust to a better station or a station more in tuned to who you truly be!!

The process is meditative and in this short video Dr Joe Dispenza explains what is’ like to be incoherent and then coherent with the brainwaves and the heart – big difference in the body and health and connecting with the Field – of Infinite Possibilities.

The more we are connected with our selves and true nature this becomes much easier, we are lighter, freer,  more in the flow and having magic happen all around us!

Enjoy

Stacey – Yin Teacher in Sayulita Mexico

Have you ever tried a Yin Yoga class?

Years ago there you would have never found me doing a Yin class – but that is when I probably needed it the most.

I was always busy doing something and on the go.  I did a lot in my day, I was busy doing and going and my work outs at the time were somewhat a physical work out – probably just to keep up with my mind!!

We live in a fast paced world now that keeps us busy doing things, going places or occupied by technology.

Many people have a hard time just sitting and doing nothing.  I know  – I was one of them!!

It wasn’t until my body said enough and I had to slow down.  At that time even doing regular Yoga was hard for awhile.

Then I tried Yin – my body loved it and it allowed me to connect more withy breath, be in the moment and become aware of how my mind kept busy – good god was it busy!!

This year I have been doing much more Yin Yoga and my body is loving it – I can’t believe how good I feel after.  Yin is where you hold poses for 2 – 7 mins and slowly go to your edge – it’s not about going deep right away but breathing into it.  Talk about learning to be present AND in the body!

In our fast paced world and also where we have so many distractions that can keep us from really truly feeling our feelings – like food, alcohol, technology etc Yin is a great add on.  Holding a pose is not always easy – most are on the floor, it’s learning to not be in the ego and push too hard too fast and also learning to be with emotions that come up as inYin a lot will be released and just witnessing the emotions (energy in motion) and learning to breath through them so they can leave the body – we hold much old trapped emotions, trauma etc in our bodies.

Ana – Drishti Center

Last night I had the privilege of being in Ana’s Yin class at the Drishti Centre in Ajijic Mexico – Ana is in the book Why We do Yoga – she is such a beautiful person and her teaching style is amazing.  She is inspirational, knowledgable deeply in Yoga, makes it fun, has great facial expressions for letting us know not to take it too seriously and a beautiful studio!

Yin has been around for awhile and what I have found out about Yin Yoga is that it is great for anyone who has had addictions, struggles with food and emotional eating, tiredness,  feeling over-stimulated, when your energy is too erratic or if your mind is overactive.

I love doing it in the evenings – it sets the stage for a great nights sleep!

Give Yin a try and I would love to hear what you think!

Thanks for stopping by
