We Lock Ourselves Up by Playing Small – Door in Cuba
The Living Soul of a man, once conscious of it’s power, cannot be quelled.
– Horace Mann
The authentic Self is the Soul made visible.
What does Awakening even mean – and I don’t mean from sleep – well now that I write that, I stand corrected – yes from asleep yet not from when we go to bed at night – we are asleep – are you waking up?
Awakening – wakefulness, the state of being Conscious.
What is Consciousness?
Consciousness – is the state of being aware.
Aware of what?
Not in an egotistical sense, but one that knows they are not their emotions, thoughts, or feelings – they are observers of it all. We are not our stories or even our bodies. We are connected with Self starting with Self Love and that everything outside of ourself is a reflection of ourself, or a feed back loop – to what one is truly thinking and feeling.
Aware that we are truly a Soul (or Energy or Consciousness) having a Human experience.
That we are truly Multi Dimensional Beings – which means we are Infinite.
Everywhere there are People – Souls having a Human Experience – Cuba
Yet since putting on the human costume we’ve forgotten that and really bought into the story aka life we are living. I know – I’ve been one of them!!
What do I mean by that?
Lets say you go to the movies – lets pretend it’s like 1970’s or something where there still is a movie projector so if we were to look at the reel of film we can see each individual frame. Yet when the movie project is running each frame moves thru the view finder that gets projected onto the screen and it appears live – one cannot tell one frame from another. (oh I will dive more into that in another post too!!)
We watch the movie – we may lose awareness of things around us (unless you have a noisy person near by as an example) and we get caught up in the movie – the drama, excitement, love affair etc we get caught up in the moment of being part of the movie. Then it ends and we remember who we are and get up and leave the movie theatre and go back to our lives. We know we are not the movie.
That is similar to what is happening when we put on our human costume – we do forget, while the movie aka our life is playing out in front of us that we are truly just here for the experiences and we are much bigger than any of it. We are Infinite Beings – yet we play small, we truly get caught up in all the stories, dramas, programs, points of views etc
Why is that?
All the programs, beliefs and points of views we have running ( I will go into more of that in a future post as well).
Everything is Just an Interesting Point of View
Bit of a mind trip I know – yet movies like the Matrix actually gave us some clues – if we were paying attention. What we have been taught really isn’t the truth.
I caught the first 2 parts of David Icke talking about Waking up this weekend and I think he shares it well (You are Infinity Living in a Bubble Part 1 and Part 2) especially about the Infinite I and the Small I – you may learn more about what I am trying to share here and how some the programming has taken place. It may open your eyes, it may help to start waking you up!
It really is time to wake up.
Wake up to who you truly are and step into Your own Power.
Part of Awakening is also knowing that there really only is Love, Light and Truth – if it isn’t any of those then chances are it’s a BFFL!!
Remember – Science and Quantum Physics is proving this – this is not some hippy dippy nomad chick who’s gone off on a trip!! 🙂
The Soul is an energy of Infinite Possibilities – it’s time to remember and be part of the Awakening that is going on!!
REmember – The Soul is Divine, It is Love, It is Infinite. Being Infinite means a greater number of Possibilities…………..the Mind and Ego will tell you otherwise and those my friends, are just programs and programs can be deleted!!
In order to save myself, I must destroy first the me I was told to be.
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.
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
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?
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.
So what are you choosing in your reality?
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.
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.
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!!

Blake said that the body was the Soul’s prison unless the 5 senses are fully developed and open.
He considered the 5 senses the ‘Windows of the Soul’.
When sex involves the senses intensely, it can be like a mystical experience!
– Jim Morrison
The 5 senses are touch, taste, hear, smell and sight that is part of being human. Not everyone has all and some go deep into one such as a gourmet chef, artist, musician and so on.
I want to leave you with some things to consider about the 5 senses.
Touch – do we use our arms, legs, fingers, hands or bodies to truly touch – ourselves as in a hug or others (appropriately of course) but in hugs too or do we touch someone with our hearts ever?
Oh the Sounds to the Ears
Hear – do we take the time to listen instead of talk? Or spend some time in quiet and hear our own thoughts? Spend some time in nature away from noise pollution – when was the last time you really listen to birds chirping or even the stillness of the quiet?
Smell – how often do we really appreciate the smell of some amazing things – good foods, essential oils, nature, a smell of someone you love up close?
Do You Always See the Same Old?
Sight – how often do we take a few minutes to take a good look around at where we are or do you just see the same old? How often do we see something but only from our perspective and often times it’s a closed one? Real creativity, imagination and goals are first unseen.
Real Food is what the Body Needs too btw
Taste – how often do we take the time to rally taste our food instead of gulping it down or eating while in front of the tv, computer or phone or the same foods weekly? When was the last time you tried new foods? Real foods? Are you eating real foods or avoiding them due to much processed chemical concoctions labelled as food so you don’t like real food any more or can’t taste it?
Oooh, what about your 6th sense? Do you know about that one?
Sixth sense, is our ability to perceive the subtle-dimension or the unseen world of angels, ghosts, energies auras, etc. Clairvoyance, premonition, intuition are synonymous with sixth sense or subtle perception ability.
Your 6th sense should be your 1st sense!
ONEness IS the New Cool
We each have a 6th sense that is attuned to the ONEness dimension in life, providing a means for us to guide our lives in accord with our ideas.
– Henry Reed

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.
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.
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.
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!
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!!
Looking Through Different Lens (eyes) with Different Filters Can be Fun!!

Our reality is nothing but an illusion. Talk about a mind f*@&……….but it’s true. Nassim Haramein has proven that our so called ‘reality’ is nothing but a feed back loop for our thoughts – in other words our reality is an illusion based on our thoughts, beliefs, patterns and feelings. In other words it reflects back to us what is truly inside of us – as above so below, as within so without.
Makes you want to rise up doesn’t it – what we are thinking and feeling and any patterns / habits we have going on in our life. Do they support us or not?
WhatEver you have going on in your world you are creating it.
Yup – makes one take responsibility FOR EVERYTHING.
Something our society isn’t good at doing.
Again – our reality is an illusion.
The illusion is not the problem.
It only becomes the problem when we think that this is the only reality.
We Cannot Solve our Problems with the Same Thinking that Created Them!
A great quote from Abraham Hicks is – ‘Nothing is real unless you give it your attention’.
Energy flows where attention flows – where are you focusing your energy?
It’s useful to experience certain things.
There is a great reality beyond this reality – wouldn’t it be cool if we could remember that?
Open the Doors to Your Imagination – it Opens You up to Other Possibilities!!
The more we connect with our Soul – we can remember it’s true.
So the more you create your reality to how you would like it to be, no not according to what you think you should because you saw it a Facebook ad or because the sheeple say it or one of the social media sites or a tv ‘reality’ show – it’s what you truly desire that from your heart!!
Without you being you the Universe is incomplete……..especially yours!!
Know who you are at a Soul level!!

Years may wrinkle the body, but fear wrinkles the Soul.
For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.
It was not my lips you kissed but my Soul.
– Judy Garland
When a dream keeps coming to your mind – it comes from the Soul.
Shiny object syndrome comes from the Ego.
Soul Purpose Energy is food for the Soul. Anything short of that is Ego or being in survival mode.
Following the whispers of the Soul gets your imagination working, your heart opens and the flow of your life clearer and stronger.
Being able to bring the unseen (dreams, 5th dimensional energies) into the seen (3rd dimensional living) and that is what Alchemy is about.!!
Every moment there is choice – follow the whispers of your Soul or follow the Ego – one brings you closer to wholeness the other doesn’t.
What are you choosing?
Create an incredible experience – this moment, today!!

“All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
“There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” ― Aldous Huxley
“Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.” ― Arthur Schopenhauer
“Closed in a room, my imagination becomes the universe, and the rest of the world is missing out.” ― Criss Jami
How do you see the world? How do you see yourself? Your body? Is it the truth or it is your point of view? Which doesn’t mean it’s true – we are all programmed by the age of 7 ( Dr Bruce Lipton – Honeymoon Effect) – your outer world is a reflection of your inner world – don’t be afraid to open up to other possibilities – nothing is true unless your give it your attention – Abraham Hicks – as Everything IS Energy!!
You might have some old outdated programs, patterns or points of views – if it’s not from Love then it’s probably a BFFL!! (big fat fucking lie!!).

To Fall in Love with Yourself is the first secret to Happiness!
Programming in our societies is deep and rampant. I can finally see it so clearly!! A lot of our old Programming needs to be deleted!!
Everything we do are programs.
According to Dr. Bruce Lipton we are fully programmed by age 7 – yes 7 years old!! We come into the world pure love and light and in Theta state – totally open – and the downloads begin.
Good news is since our brains are like computers – they can be totally RE-Programmable.
I really feel the movie The Matrix gave us some BIG clues – Everything IS Energy and much how we live is programs – not good enough, lack, struggle, gotta go to the Dr’s, eat 3 square meals a day, go to school get a good education, so you can be a good employee, work 40 hours a week – (usually doing something you hate for a pay check), we don’t have choice, we need meds to heal and so on………everything truly is a program – that is why TeLIEvision otherwise known as TV Programming is soooo Powerful.
Thank goodness people are waking up!!!!
We do Create, We are Powerful, We can RE-Program and Everything IS Energy and depending on your perspective of awareness is the Consciousness!!
Our Genes, which are affected by our DNA – does not have eyes or ears therefore they cannot see or hear what is going on – instead it determines the environment by reading the energy – our state of being – all our emotions are chemical reactions in the body – love, hate, joy, frustration etc
The body produces neurons based on how we are feeling – interrupt the state – if it’s states you don’t like or want aka anger, low self worth etc RE-Program, RE-Program, RE-Program so that the body creates more neurons of what you desire. Change the Environment so the INvironment changes too!!
Old Mexican Scene!!
Does it take work?
It’s worth it though!!!
After all it is YOUR Life – fall in love with it and keep doing things that bring you Joy. That is the way of living a truly more fulfilled and Conscious life!!
Shut the tv off that creates lack and fear programming, stop reading newspapers that do the same thing. Let go of people and things that bring you down.
Each moment and day counts!!
Get out into nature – the healing benefits of nature are endless, love yourself more, laugh more and don’t take things so seriously. They are proving it’s all a hologram (more not that coming up in posts – mind twist?? you bet but it’s lightens things big time)
And remember NO one gets out alive – well our physical bodies anyways so lets all enjoy our life!!
Eat Real Food to fuel your body – your beautiful body NOT to feed your emotions.
Not Feeling our Emotions keeps us locked up.
Real Emotions transcends language.
You don’t have to understand their words to feel their pain.
– Julia Roberts
Emotions don’t tell the truth.
Just because you have a feeling about something doesn’t mean it’s true – we are all running so many programs and most of them don’t support or even like us!
Emotions are Energy in Motion – unless you lock it into your body – deep breathing is always a god way to move thru them.
Real People having Real Conversations
You know what is sexy? A real conversation!
We have more conversations in our head than in our real lives especially ones from the heart.
I like people I can have really deep conversations with sometimes and yet still get silly with them too.
When we dive into the energy of things – IF Everything IS Energy and it is then lets get real – real with what we eat as our bodies do know the difference and can’t process fake foods hence dis-ease. Lets not be afraid of feeling our emotions and working with some great modalities that help move the energy out faster – it’s ok to feel them – journal about it, stomp in the forest, talk real with a friend, punch a punching bag or your pillow, dance and move to move the energy and just be kind to you and anyone else. 🙂 And lets talk have real, more meaningful, deeper conversations – not about the weather or politics please!!
Come from the heart for yourself and others – we don’t know what people are going through – especially women today – IF Everything IS Energy – what kind of energy are you being with you? Lets start there first!!

Intentions vs Resolutions – Intentions Bring Light
Happy 2018 – what a fantastic year it’s going to be!!
Now that we are a few days into the New Year how are your NY’s Resolutions going?
What do I mean exactly by Intentions vs Resolutions?
I did say in my last post I would share – here goes.
Most people do the same ole thing every year – set the same resolutions – and they have them narrowed down to the same top 10 that most people choose,
get out of debt
make more money
You get the idea.
One starts off strong and by mid February if not sooner they’re back doing the same ole. Just watch the amount of traffic at a gym or yoga studio from the first week in January and then agin in February.
People are creatures of habits – trust me I know!
So how to make 2018 different……
One truly needs to et very clear on what it is they desire – not just think they want but heart felt.
Start by creating a list of what things, ways of being etc you no longer want in your life.
Having unclarity in One’s Life is like living in a Fog
Get VERY clear.
From there make a list of things or how you want to be in your life and keep refining it so you are clear.
Get into the feelings of it – we want to access the emotional / feeling part of it and this is where one needs to be honest with oneself on what they truly desire.
It’s not always about the big house, new car, sitting on the beach all day – what feelings do you want to feel?
Healthy and vitality?
Is it a different career that brings so much fulfillment?
Is it a new healthy relationship with yourself? Your body? or a beloved?
If your life is here and you desire to be there (whatever there is) – what feelings and emotions do you have now in your life and what feelings and emotions would you need to have to be over there (having your desires)?
The only difference between here and there is your beliefs, programs (and man are they deep especially with cultural and communities etc), fears, doubts – they ALL act as filters.
The more you can see it in your minds eye – remember what Einstein said
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”
Get Creative with YOUR Imagination!!
The mind does NOT know the difference between real and imagined!!!!
So the more one can step into clear knowing of what they truly desire, let go and blow up all the programs, fears, doubts etc cause they are all nothing but big fat fucking lies anyways – the truth is always abundance and always love – look around at nature – always abundant! Then create and step into the feelings of it already being done – it may sound silly BUT IT WORKS! 🙂
I will keep sharing and explaining this in upcoming posts – Consciousness, Matter, Quantum Physics, Programs etc
PLEASE NOTE: Lack of anything is man made – it’s a construct, a program and is not natural to the Laws of the Universe.
You can NOT create something unless you picture it in your minds eye and also create an elevated emotion.
The more you do that with your desires – WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY – then it has to happen.
Everything is Energy – YOU being the observer of YOUR Dreams then can create matter aka manifest in physical form.
How cool is that?
Here is a simple analogy that may make is easier to comprehend.
You work 40 hrs a week and are needing a break. You want to go on a holiday, so you start looking at resorts to go to to get away (usually not just from your job but your life too and more than likely the weather), you search the internet, look at different places, see the pools, beach, oh all you can eat etc – I bet right now you can feel how it would feel to be lying on one of those chairs on the beach feeling the heat on your body, the gentle breeze blowing, the smell of the ocean and you can hear the waves crashing on the shore – then the beach server asks you what you would like to drink……….get the idea??
More people spend more time creating a great get away then they do their life.
Lets do that with your life.
Remember, the only limitation is you!!
So drop and stop all those NY’s resolutions and get clear on what YOU intend to have happen in your life and step into the energy of being it – that is also called changing and raising YOUR Vibration!!
Much Love & Gratitude
Focus – on YOUR Life
