ICMing in the Garden

The Fire Within

ICMing?

Intentional Camera Movement

During this past 15 months, and lock downs and quiet time, some of my creativity I felt was not there, yet I truly did enjoy the quiet and slowing down for a bit.

I thought I would expand my creative juices in other areas since I also could not do Encaustic.

I tried painting, art journalling, mixed media, drawing and well, I learned quickly they were just not me.

I still do a form of art journalling, but my own of connecting with emotions, thoughts, frustrations etc and it’s interesting what does come out.

Since moving into a new space with a huge lush garden and yard, things have shifted yet again.  I noticed all the trees and what they shared but I overlooked the flowers, at first, anyways.

Dancing Rose

Not that I didn’t notice them, but not like I do now.  I was part of a 5 day ICM workshop last week and every morning I went out into the garden and played with my camera and really saw the flowers at a much deeper level.

I love nature, the quiet, the beauty, the calmness, the abundance, the non-judgment and I got curious and playful.  One of the great aspects of nature but also ICM.

You could put 5 Photographers in front of a flower and you would get similar images, but add in ICM and everything is different, unique and I find rather beautiful.

It can take one beyond the linear, beyond seeing the same old.

Emergence

I love being able to paint with my camera (and of course torch but more on that later), as some of us just can’t create beautiful art with a paint brush.  No judgment, it’s just where our gifts lie.

Since stepping back into ICM, my creativity is opening up more but also my playfulness and curiousity.  I do feel like I am creating paintings with my camera, Impressionistic style, formless and different. All are done in camera, with minimal tweaking in LR.

Great way to turn my attention away from the  so called ‘real’ world and what is happening there.

How do you get creative, playful or curious?

Be Kind

See the beauty in everything and everyone – that’s how kindness starts!

Be Kind to Everyone

For, we don’t know their journey, their past, their present, their story, their pain, their struggles,

and it doesn’t matter

For, in the current state of the world, no matter what, we need more kindness more than ever.

Kindness goes a long way, you never know how that could touch someone.

A smile, kind word, kind deed, letting a subject go no matter the differences,

as there will always be differences as we are different,

yet at the core the same.

And when one realizes that, then one realizes there is no they.

No matter what, just be kind.

It starts with self.

Creative Expression

Dancing Bird of Paradise – captured in the garden ICM style

It’s been a little bit I know, I have been moving then settling into a new yet temporary place and enjoying the gardens!!  Spending time in nature is so healing, nurturing and balancing.  This yard has avocado trees, mango trees, lime trees, pomegranate, bananas, guava, lots of flowers, a tall fountain that birds come splash in and a turtle pond!

So I’ve been in heaven just spending time in this beautiful space.

Creative Expression

What is it and why?

If Consciousness is playing a game (read my book to understand this more)  then it didn’t come down here to be like anyone else.  It came here to create an unique experience through it’s unique frequency or so called ‘vibe’.

Wouldn’t that be boring if everyone was all the same or trying to be the same or similar?

Yet, advertising tells us something else.  A story.

Usually with the theme of never enough.

What if we were all our own star and have just forgotten that?  Now, would you want to be or trying to be like anyone else?

Seriously, would you?

So then, why is anyone trying to fit in with someone(s), somethings or copy other people and ways of being or doing things?

Creative expression is not that.

It’s not necessarily art, yet in whatever or however one chooses to express them self, it will be art.

In this type of consciousness, there is never harm to anyone or anything just to be clear.

How are you or would you creatively express if you are choosing?

How do you know?

I’ll give you a hint, you get excited, feel good, get all giggly like inside and it brings such joy to even think about it.  Even a little bit, if one doesn’t deny it.

It may not be that one thing as you start to explore in that direction. If you start to explore yet it keeps changing yet leading you to something new or something else, and if you keep following that joy, it will lead you to the sweet spot and then you’ll know why you started with that one thing.

Don’t question it or try to make sense of it, we’re not always that bright.

Just follow it, and trust.

It may test you just to make sure you will follow.

That sweet spot has no words to describe it, it has to be experienced, has to be felt, but it’s ooooooh soooo good and worth it!!

Why?

You get to meet you, the real you at a deeper level and creatively expressing is then, a way of life.

Soul’s Purpose

Don’t keep yourself in a box by separation and labels!

Love is our Soul Purpose.

  –  unknown

 

Is to remember their truth.

They are pure Love.

Love is everything, yet nothing at the same time.

No separation, as it’s formless, yet can become form.

No labels, as it’s undefined, yet also can be defined if it chooses.

It’s time to remember that,

All else is just part of the storyline.

A Story of Our Souls – Remembering Love is an adult story book yet has much truth in it, for anyone who is wondering, questioning, searching and wanting to know more.

Check out the testimonies and you can download the first 3 chapters for free!!

Heart – Mind Connection

Have a heart to heart talk with yourself – follow what brings you Joy!!

You’ll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart.

–  George Michael

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

  –  Albert Einstein
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. – Albert Einstein

We’re addicted to our beliefs; we’re addicted to the emotions of our past. We see our beliefs as truths, and not as ideas that we can change.

– Joe Dispenza

After talking about the Fallen Ones, I thought it might be a good idea to go on a higher vibe subject!!

The heart mind connection IS the most powerful force in one’s self.

The mind is electrical – neuropathways, INvisioning is seeing before it happens.  The heart is magnetic – the stronger the heart is connected to the vision the more force the magnet has.

IF, the heart is not activated, example one is doing something because they feel they should, yet would prefer to be doing something else, something that when they think about it feels exciting……..feels good.  That is engaging the heart.

Marry the two and that is what separates out the dreamers, the artists, the ones living life full of vitality.

You know it when you meet them as you can feel it.

Love IS the highest vibration.

Why would you do things that don’t bring you joy.  Yes, I do get we have to do some things but where we spend most of our time.

Yes, it is possible and now more than ever it is necessary.

I wanted to do Photography most of my life, even went to college for it and won a couple of awards.

But, I got programmed with I could never make money doing Photography and was I good enough.

All BS – yes belief systems but that too!! 🙂

Delete the programming and the heart and mind can connect easier.

Photography is what I am playing more with again and it feels so fun, freeing and frickin fantastic!!

The Matrix has been designed without Love, the Fallen Ones can’t feel that and they hate that.

Marry the mind and heart and go beyond this reality as that is where magic, truth and natural law exist!!

I’ll meet you there!!

Jodi

PS – this is also a high form of self love!!

 

 

The Fallen Ones

Let all doubts, fears and disbeliefs go – they are not you!!!

 

There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.

Never send a human to do a machine’s job.

I’m going to enjoy watching you die Mr. Anderson.

                                                                                        The Matrix

You have to let it go Neo. Fear, doubt and disbelief.  Free your mind.

  –  Morpheus

 

 

Fallen ones do truly exist.  I talk more about them in my book A Story of Our Souls – Remembering Love.

Not everyone is aware that everyone is different, with some being very different!

Being different, in this scenario means different energies, different frequencies, different vibrations, not just in uniqueness and qualities but also in DNA – the core structure of oneself.

Yes, there are fallen ones!

Don’t try to BE one of them!

A fallen one is one that has fallen from Grace so to say.

Doesn’t have the pure Love vibe going on anywhere within, yet, may act sort of as if.

Their actions mostly don’t align with their words.

They don’t care.

Money, power and control is their goal.

Nothing is wrong with any of those, when used properly, consciously and for the better of all.  Well money anyways as do we really need power or control over anyone?

Their house of cards have been built on lies, manipulations, control, money, power , riots and more.

They run in elite groups, secret societies and governments.  That kind of manipulating, psychopathic energies have infiltrated out into much in this world.

It’s become the new ‘normal’.

Yet is it??

They love having ones in fear, as they love control.

They have no heart as in emotion, compassion or empathy.

The more you do things that bring you joy, spend time in nature and truly BEcome energies of love, they hate that.

Why?

They dissolve, they go away as they cannot handle that vibration.

It’s much too high for them.

Don’t sink to their level

Why it is so important to do things that bring you joy and keep doing more of that.

What brings you Joy?

What is in your heart yearning to be creatively expressed?

Do that and more.

Watch what happens as we do live in an energetic yoUniverse!!

I’ll be sharing more of mine, how I love to creatively express in upcoming posts!!

Thanks for taking the time!

Programs & Beliefs are the Matrix

Programs & Beliefs can distort our thinking and perspective on how we see the world.

 

 

Unfortunately no one can be told what the Matrix is, you have to see it for yourself.

I’m trying to free you mind Neo, but I can only show you the door, you’re the one that has to walk through it.

We can never see past the choices we can’t understand.

The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

  –  Morpheus – The Matrix

 

 

It’s been awhile I know.  It’s weird times and some of us are getting affected by all going on.  We can see thru so much lies, bs and manipulation and hoping truth bombs start soon.  So, in saying that, I was doing more creative projects, brewing lots of Kombucha and spending time in nature and playing Pickle Ball – I feel very fortunate, with a little self isolating – it helps to nurture my creativity.

So, here we are now, in this moment!! J

I promised I would talk about some things like programs and beliefs.  We’ll even go a little further and talk about the Matrix.

Yes, there truly is one!!

Here it is in a nutshell?

The one truth in the Universe is pure Love.

Anything else outside of that is distorted energy.

If we go back to my posts on Energy, Frequency and Vibrations – then you know it’s information.

Pure Love is all, yet nothing.

In other words, since there are no programs running, it is all, yet attaches to Nothing.

Pure Love – is just that.

Clean, clear, bright and quiet.

Quiet?

Yes, no programs running.

Distorted energies are programs and beliefs.

Delete those and……..

What are programs?

Things that run in the mind or subconscious that affects your reality.  They emit a frequency as they too are energy. They are constantly playing in our heads, but we are soooo used to that playing out, in our heads, that we are thinking and feeling it.  It becomes our personality, which is our personal reality.

Look at your life – what do you like and what do you not like?

There are programs and beliefs there.  Some examples are, but not limited too (that would be a very long post!!)

I’m not good enough, rich enough, thin enough, _______(fill in the blank with whatever descriptions fits for you).

Experts tell the truth so I listen to them.

I have to go to school, get a education, a good job, get married, have 2.5 kids oh and a dog and that is the American Dream, but is it truly yours?

Yea, read that again, it took me awhile to get that, at first!

I need to be married to feel complete.

I need to go to church to honor God.

I need to stay with my spouse for the children.

This (whatever this is) is right, that is wrong.

_________ is/are better than______.

And so on.

Programs show up as a theme in our lives – different face, different place but…….same or similar energies.  One has to stop and look at patterns going on.  It’s not the outside world affecting you that one needs to worry about, it’s what is going on inside of you that gets emitted out (as frequencies of thought and feeling energies) that gets reflected back as your reality.

Are just a few examples of beliefs – which can be programs too.

Says who to any of that?

The Matrix is where all the programs and belief structures exist.

IF, it truly is heart felt, it brings you joy, one has no attachment  to it, except that creating and having that experience would bring you true bliss, then it is truly aligned with he heart. Which is much higher in frequency, therefore vibration.

Do things that bring you Joy and keep doing more of it.

Pure Love is the highest vibration.

That’s creating heaven on earth, that is getting your consciousness out of the matrix, that is deleting all the bs – belief systems!!

That IS true freedom.

Have the high vibe!!

And question everything!!

Consciousness

There is so much beauty in nature and the moment.

Consciousness has no religion, no belief, no ideology, no gender, no sexuality, no race, no age and no nationality.

You ARE Consciousness.

  –  unknown

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

   –  Albert Einstein

The heart chakra is out potential connection to the highest levels of awareness,

innate intelligence which cannot be taught, intuition and ‘knowing’.

It is the balance point for the other 6 chakras – the lower three largely relate

to this reality and the higher three largely to expanded levels of awareness and

communication. The heart is the governor sitting at the center, or should be,

and is potentially – emphasis on potentially – our connection to Infinite Self.

   – David Icke

What IF……..part of being on Planet Earth, we had to walk through a veil of amnesia into the illusion of separation for it to seem more real?

And, what IF, we’ve gone to far, like way tooooo far into amnesia?

Consciousness is awareness, awareness is being present.  How present are you in your every day reality?

When we watch tv, are on our phones, computers and tablets, drinking and other things, we have little to no moment to moment presence, therefore little to no awareness therefore little to no consciousness.

It’s a form of separation with oneself.

If we have little consciousness, then how is one running their lives?

Many are being run by programs, which I will go into a bit in the next post.  When there is little consciousness, autopilot takes over, which are programs.

It was part of the game of being here on Planet Earth having some amnesia, but not to the extent it has gone.

How long can you sit with yourself, with nothing – no tv, computer, phone with you?

Do you spend time in nature (without those of course)?

Do you do anything creative?

Do you scroll FB endlessly?

When you go out to eat with friends, how often, or how many  spend a fair bit of time on your phone? (and now in many restaurants even stores have tv’s in them – seriously???)

Those are just some samples to get you thinking 🙂 and hey, we all do it, but how much is a better question!

Consciousness is not a common topic talked about, we were never taught any of it.  More importantly though, one needs takes responsibility for all one’s choices, which is not common now.

What are you choosing?

It’s part of the game of being here, yet have you taken it too far?

Asking for a friend 🙂

The Avatar Suit

Each Avatar suit is beautiful and unique in it’s own beauty!!

What if…………..

our body suit is like putting on a Halloween costume and going to a Halloween party, yet we forgot that and won’t leave the party!!

Why?

We think it’s pretty awesome at the party and want to stick around longer and keep experiencing it!! Yet, most, if not all of us through our experiences and multiple life times, through much of what we experienced, we created what is called karma, therefore, in order to clear the karma, we have to keep coming back here. Which we forget about and seldom, if ever clear the karma and  because we forgot totally what else is out there (way beyond Planet Earth) that is so friggin good, that all of this here would be like walking thru the ghetto in East harlem, or better yet India.

Yeah, I kid you not!

We stay as we forget we can leave, it’s a party and we do have choice. Oh and that darn karma, needs to be cleared, which can be easy!

We forget it all.

Even that our body is just a costume, an avatar suit.  Notice every time we are here, we change costumes? (well if you can remember the other times, your life times, that is) Yet, once we put on  that costume, that avatar suit on, we forget that.

And that is part of the game also,  forgetting our truth.

It makes it harder.

The avatar suit becomes our identity, yet it’s not us.  Everything is for the body – clothing, food, housing, etc, we do spend much of our time caring for our body, yet there is more!  Each one is unique, different and beautiful.  We should never spend time competing, hating it or trying to change it.  Keep it healthy, yes but it is a gift from Souce – honour it!!

hmmmmm

Another way to look at it is, to be putting on the things that make a game seem like a virtual reality game.  You, the player, put on the glasses and gloves and anything else to make that game seem ooooooh so real. And it does!  Just as consciousness projects it’s awareness into a 3D physical suit – aka costume or avatar suit.

Which creates you, and you, and you and me and………..well, everything else. as everything IS energy!

Cool eh??!

If we thought about it this way, we may start having a little more fun along the way and stop taking it all so seriously!!

A Story of Our Souls – Remembering Love is a good intro to more of you!

 

Soul – What is it??

Soul – Unique Vibrational Frequency

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

   –  Albert Einstein

 

What if………there is truth to this??

Chapter 1 – A Story of Our Souls – Remembering Love

Once upon a time………

In a galaxy far, far away Source (also known as Creation, The Divine, Creator, God, The Field,

Infinite Intelligence, etc. whatever you wish to call it – Source for this book) wanted to create

something new, something different.

Yet it didn’t know what.

All it knew was itself.

AS it was only itself in all of the Cosmos.

Source got an awareness that it had never experienced anything outside of itself – in the vast

ocean of the cosmos……it was just itself…… all alone.

Now just to be clear, Source was not lonely at all, maybe bored but definitely not lonely it just

wanted to create and have experiences outside of itself.It wanted to experience a contrast, a

polarity to Love.

Source thought that it was time to create an experience so it could begin to know itself better.

Source started thinking about what kind of experiences it could create or would like to create.

It could choose anything and everything, since there were endless possibilities.

It realized though, that it wouldn’t be much fun as there was only itself, it wanted to have

interactions.

Source only knew pure Love.

Love was the highest vibration of all frequencies and all frequencies are energies.

Frequencies range in vibration.

Everything IS Energy, which means it has a vibration which is a frequency.

Energy is Light and sound waves that carry information –  which were also known as

light codes.  Everything in the Cosmos was created by Source and all was created out of

the vibration of Love.

That energy of pure Love was all that Source had ever known, experienced or created from.

Soon, so that Source could start having experiences, and to create more awareness of itself,

starting creating more of itself.

Yes, more of itself.

In the Cosmos it was known as a Divine Spark of Energy, maybe the big bang or a little bang each

time Source duplicated itself.  This new Divine Spark of energy aka Consciousness ,aka Source

took form so to say.  This form was an unique vibrational frequency that became that Spark

Energy’s Soul thumbprint, also called blueprint.

Therefore, even though it was still Source or say, a sub-part of Source – it was still

Source creatively expressing itself and its uniqueness as that individuated unique frequency.

Unique.

Each divine expression had a code since it was energy.  Each and every time.

Yet, all of this is still interconnected to Source.

All of this!

Oneness, with unique expressions, different codes.

As Source started creating more of itself, it was in vibrations of such joy, such delight,

such bliss, such love it could hardly contain itself as it had never experienced more of itself

before.

Source never realized it could feel even more Love than before.  So it kept reproducing itself

over and over and over and over again.

And then again!

Each time having more love, more joy and way more fun in the process.

Source stood back in total awe of what it was creating!

Source could not believe that it had never thought of this before!!

Now Source had company.

Even then, Source kept creating.

And this is where it all started, how the Soul came to be!!
