Being Present in each moment

Consciousness – what truly is it?  Why have I chosen to include that in my tag line?

For me as I go through life and am waking up, growing, learning, expanding I truly realize how unconscious I am or have been.  How I have been running on auto pilot – which most if not all of us are to some degree or another – it’s not a judgment it is how our minds and body work.

I am sure you have heard the story of the iceberg representing our conscious an unconscious states – the tip of the ice berg is our conscious awareness yet under neath the water lies a much larger iceberg attached – that is a representation of our conscious and unconscious or subconscious minds.

From diving in and learning more from Dr Joe Dispenza – our bodies actually become our minds and run the show due to feelings and emotions – for me it’s become fascinating stuff!!

If we truly want change in our lives we need to break the Habit of Being Ourselves and become someone new – we are creating new thoughts, feelings and emotions i the body – and I will go into more detail about that – as it truly is possible as I have been experiencing it!

Self Time or Meditations is so great for us!

It’s like having a computer – it doesn’t do a thing until you start downloading programs into it.  Our minds are the same way.

We let our outside world determine how we feel many times  – we are taking cues from outside to determine how we want to feel or are programmed to feel.

We can recall experiences in the past usually by how we feel about them – good, great or not so good.

Feelings and Emotions are chemical records of past experiences.

Do we truly want to keep living in the past?

I know I have been  – you can tell by what you are thinking about over and over – chances are it’s not the future (unless you are worrying about it and that is based on past experiences) or being fully present in the moment.

Usually Very Busy Running Through Life

I will be diving deeper into energy as well.

We’ve heard many times Everything is Energy – yet what does that truly mean?

We are energy.  Yes everything is energy even things that seem dense like a table – it’s just it’s energetic vibration is a dense one to say green foods as a simple example.

Anger, depression, low self worth are heavier, denser energies compared to joy, love and gratitude which are higher vibrational energies.

You can tell by how you feel by experiencing any of those which I am sure you’ve experienced them all!!

Your mind and also your body do not the know the difference between reality and imagination – even Einstein found this back in the day – your imagination is actually more powerful!

If everything is energy – and we are energy then we are also consciousness.

What is consciousness?

It is being fully present, i the moment, aware of it’s mind and surroundings and choices one makes and also open to not having to control things and let the universe surprise.

I can’t wait to dive deeper into this since I know that many women have been struggling with self esteem issues, emotional eating issues and body issues – it’s time we changed the energy of all of that!!

We create by our thoughts, intentions, and feelings.

It’s time to do so consciously – as we are so worthy of it and powerful!!

Create an amazing day!!



It All Starts Within Us





What has your focus? Your attention?

What do you think about most often?

When you are doing something are you fully present or is your mind wandering on what you will be doing next, or need to do, want to do or the shopping list?

I have been having some fun watching surfers – so many from different places, beginners to advanced, young to old – checking out the conditions, having patience and being very present an focused.

You have to be.

Whenever you find your mind is everywhere else but in what you are doing, in being fully present just take a few deep breaths in an you will come back into your body!!

It helps to create being present, awareness, focus and more consciousness.

Create a magical day by doing things or at least something that you love, that lights you up!!


Consciousness – Yoga – Photography

Love in Sayulita Mexico

Consciousness –  Yoga  – Photography

Quite the combination eh?  You are probably wondering how that came about??


Over the years, with many modalities, workshops, reading and from experiences has come learning and growing.  I have dived into consciousness and quantum physics off and on over the years not always understanding it.  People use the words, yet I feel very few people truly embody it.

What I have and still am learning with an eating disorder it goes much deeper into the psyche than I ever realized, so it’s become more of my mission to dive even deeper in.

When I am going through some major life lessons I am always looking for what I can learn, how I can grow, what do I need to be aware of, the patterns and beliefs for things to have been created like that – as we are the creator of everything in our lives.  What I am learning is exciting and I am diving deeper studying with Dr Joe Dispenza – this whole quantum field, consciousness and neuroscience is fascinating.


I still have a ton to learn and embody yet it keeps getting better every day.


Consciousness to me is personal growth, being willing to look at your stuff, open to letting go of ego and the way things should be, being more present in each moment as that is really all there is.  Knowing that as being consciousness we effect matter therefore it’s so important to eat, think and feel high vibing food, feelings, emotions which I will keep going into!!

Some things need to be left in the past!

It’s about being present – not living in the past and anything that keeps us stuck in old emotions get looked at, released and healed.  It’s about knowing and honouring who you truly are and not pretending to be someone else, competing, hiding yourself and doing things that aren’t you or you don’t like doing – even a job. leave the old crap in the past!

Breathing, meditation, love making, certain activities like surfing, yoga etc help greatly to be in the present moment!!

Surfer in Sayulita Mexico

I have had the pleasure of being able to de-program many things over the last couple of years of how I was living and what I was doing.  Even yesterday I got called out by caring people twice on some bs I was doing to still not fully embody who I truly be!!!

I love it!!

Everything is Energy – which has a vibration.  Anger and hatred and process foods have very low or even dense vibrations.  Love, Joy, Gratitude and real, fresh foods especially when grown with love and sunlight have much higher vibrations.


Example of how the Universe can work and does work when we get out of the way and try not to figure out the how.

Yesterday I thought of some photos I want to take while here in Sayulita, they are with the water and I need to use a slow shutter release – so slow I will need a tripod, which I did not bring with me.  This am I looked up a couple of photographers and called two and left a message about renting a tripod, then got busy with some other things and forgot about it. Low and behold later this afternoon as I went for a quick dip in the ocean, as I was walking down I suddenly realize I was behind 2 teenagers who lived here and spoke perfect English were carrying a tripod and yes he would rent it to me!!





Does it matter?


Consciousness to me is about all that we do, eat, feel and say – trust me I am learning every day where I am not or have not been conscious and it’s not a judgment of self, it’s awareness and once I have that then I can choose how I want to feel, be, say or do!




I’ve dived into Yoga off and on since I was in my early 20’s, yet saying that not for the right reasons.

It was more for the asana’s and work out, not the body connection, breath work or even meditation.

Yes it’s me – I keep evolving and learning! Photography by Cherry Bomb

After years of working out hard, my body said stop and I did very little for a couple of years (this is also when I was deprogramming on many levels). My body was tired and achy – first time I could truly feel being in my body after a in person session with Mas Sajady.  People that have had an eating disorder or emotional eating work very hard to disconnect from their bodies.  Yoga helps to reconnect to it IF done with being kind to self and not creating it into a fitness program, judgment about self, body, weight, what you can or can’t do, and what fashion you are or aren’t wearing.

It has helped me become more connected to my body, aware and kinder to it.  Gone are the days of hitting the gym, long runs or any type of hard workout to look better or punish my body – it wants to be loved in many ways!




This truly is one of my passions and an art of mine that I have not allowed myself to do or found excuses why I couldn’t or shouldn’t do it.  Plus I was programmed that I could never make money doing Photography – and I bought into it.  All I know is I so enjoy doing it and there are tons of photographers who are better than me yet that is not what it is about.  People have encouraged me for years to keep at it, yet I never felt like I was good enough to do it.  So because it brings me pleasure and allows me to create and be / feel creative I want to bring in my Photography especially while travelling.

I have started working on a Photo Yoga project – where there is flow there is go.  I am needing many Yogi’s for this project and so far everyone I have asked or talked to has said yes!!  You will know more about it shortly and later this year it will be out!  That is just one Photo project!!

Yoga Photo Project

We are moving in a direction of healing for many of us and embodying more of ourselves yet sometimes we just don’t know where to turn we just know it’s time!

Living this way does not numb us, it gets us back in touch with ourselves.

Real being therefore real conversations.
Whole, plant based foods are true medicine.
Sharing vulnerably is being authentic.
Authentic connection is liberating.
Singing, dancing, being creative  and cooking is true medicine.
Nature is grounding.
Yoga is true reconnecting.
Meditation is slowing down and going within.

Love can create miracles.

Can you imagine a different world??

That is where it all starts!!

Much Love









New Beginnings

New Beginnings

Leave the Past Behind

When you stop and reflect back over your life it’s interesting to see where you’ve been and where you are if you are on the path of growth and awareness.  You can clearly see when there are new beginnings!

Leave the past where it is – in the past!

I’ve gone through a lot of bs in my life.  It’s not a judgment it just was and at some point I woke up to the fact that the common denominator is all of it was me!!!

I tried to fit in, play by the rules, pretending to be someone I really wasn’t as I never felt good enough.  I lacked confidence, didn’t truly know who I was, lived in fear, doubt and anxiety (of even my own shadow).  I was not allowed to make choices as a child on the clothes I would wear, how to have my hair, what to eat etc so as an adult do you think I could make choices?

Then I went into the public school system where even more of that got enforced.

Then a younger sibling came along who was a highly active energy baby – I was always a good girl and could play well by myself…….so I did……my mom was too worn out for time with me.

I was programmed that life is hard and you work hard – any job as most people don’t like their jobs just get one and do it.

Yoga on the Beach

Also programmed to hate my body, never speak up, battle with food as it was the enemy – restrict it (so actually you are restricting life) and when I couldn’t deal with things or needed to relax – have a drink or several……….

And I went looking for love in all the wrong places!!

I don’t blame anyone here just to be perfectly clear.  I have and am working through my emotions and my ego and have taken responsibility for creating it and buying into other people’s beliefs, realities and programs.

I never knew I could create my own life– that is part of the experiment here on planet earth – coming back to our true, authentic selves and living from there – remembering who we truly be!

If it is not created in and from 100% love – it’s a big fat f*&@ing lie.  Unfortunately most of us have lost what that truly is for ourselves.

More Yoga on the Beach

I can only speak for me and it has taken me awhile to move through it and get it – hey I am still a work in progress – I just know where I’ve been, where I’m at and where I am going  and it’s pretty amazing.

I have had the pleasure of being in Mexico now for 3months with one more to go.  I had much growth, awareness, reflection time.  I have tapped into deeper consciousness, done my Yoga Teacher training and since being in a place that also has nurtured my soul my creativity is blossoming!

I have created one on line program for dealing with emotional eating that will be on line next week.  Followed by another one of taking it deeper and re-connecting with more of you!  I’ve also expanded back into Coaching and have a Yoga Photo project that will be out later this summer.

Workshops coming and a retreat next winter.  Creativity truly expanding!!

I am grateful for the journey even though it was not fun at times – it’s like my soul wanted to experience what it truly did not want so I could get VERY clear on what I truly desired AND who I truly am / be!!

In the fall, I let almost all of my possessions go, even my beautiful antiques.  Releasing on the outside also releasing o the inside.   I am now travelling with a suitcase  for my clothing and my other baggage just got much lighter– and it’s so freeing!!

I put myself in a country where I didn’t know a soul and couldn’t speak the language, then I had 2 experiences that rocked my world, brought me to my knees and I knew it was time again to dive in even deeper to clear out old programs and baggage so I wouldn’t attract it in again.

It’s like my soul planned it.

I am not weighed down in the 3rd dimensional reality.

I know people are looking at me like I’ve lost it or am a freak.

Those of you who have or are doing this will get it!

Truly living and embodying living on your terms it’s so worth it – words cannot describe it!!!!

The clarity, empowerment, joy, bliss, love and gratitude keep getting fuller and stronger.

Breathing, much breathe work and meditation – slowing the monkey mind and truly becoming Consciousness.

And Radical Self Love………..


Now things keep lining up easier and effortlessly.

People, events, circumstances just keep getting better!

My quest and journey have brought me to the point where it’s time for me to step up and start helping others break free – especially from food addictions, self hatred, body issues, and disempowerment.

Life is too short to be watching the fear based news and stupid sitcoms that are rather insulting to our intelligence or to battle with food, ourselves or our bodies!

Each moment, hour, day is either passing us by with unmet wants, desires and living fully or we are  growing, evolving, expanding and moving more into our true, authentic, beautiful, powerful selves creating a life we love so much so that we jump up out of bed in the morning full of vibrant radiance as we know.

It’s time for us to truly awaken.

Are you ready??

Lets stay connected and thanks for stopping by and sharing this!!

New Look

New Look

Joyful Living



Yes it’s been awhile since I have posted – my blog has a new look!!

I have been travelling down in Mexico – which you may know from my posts, going through major transition and transformation and now in Yoga Teacher Training so life has been interesting and intense to say the least!!!


After reflecting and taking some time, enjoying the sun and beach, doing yoga, much deep inner personal work, diving into new areas that are rocking my world like Quantum Physics and playing with the field, understanding energy, breath work and consciousness better –  I knew my life was heading in a new direction.  A direction that got me energized and jazzed like never before!

Therefore new energy – higher vibrational energy – clearer energy – conscious energy – my life will never be the same – so my blog had to take a new look as well.

I am so excited at what is happening and coming down the pipeline – this time has given me a chance to really look within to see what is calling me, who I truly be, what sets my soul on fire and how I can contribute to a better place here on planet earth and I want to share it.

Surfer in Sayulita


A lot of this stuff has not been new to me, I have been learning it and dabbling in it off and on for years BUT never fully embodying it and having it all click so effortlessly – all that reading, watching, learning, attending workshops, seminars etc finally paid off in a very big way!

Baby Sea Turtle Going to Sea

I have been meeting some incredible people, seeing some amazing things, learning, expanding my consciousness, digging deep into personal growth, raising my vibration, clearing even more old beliefs and patterns and eating really healthy (even more so than usual :)) – once you start down this path you can never turn back.  At times it’s friggin hard or so it seems but then break throughs happen and you can’t put a price tag on those, it is worth every second of it!

Along with my new blog there will be new programs that will be up shortly, more photography, posts, inspiration, fun, recipes, and things to challenge your thoughts, beliefs and the way you are creating your life and living.

2017 did not get off on a great start for me – yet when I reflect back on it it challenged me to truly step into me, the real authentic me who has been there all along she just got put on the side waiting and now she is front and center.

Early Morning Tranquility

My life and learning has been a journey that I have taken me to where I am today, which is so different to where I was 2 years ago, 1 year ago or even 4 months ago – I feel like I am a totally different person. I am ready  to guide and assist others who have been struggling with similar things – to list a few – emotional eating, low self worth, non-supportive belief systems, inauthentic being to help them re-connect with their true, authentic selves, to be the catalysts for people’s awakening as it’s not what you think.  My life has been my training (and oh so much more) and my wish is to help others in a much shorter time line!!

We are creating our realities each moment– are you enjoying what you are creating and living?

If not stay tuned and keep coming back – I promise you – you won’t be disappointed!!

The rest of 2017 is on it’s way to becoming an amazing year for me that will be filled with many great moments, people, experiences, growth, health, vitality and abundance – I hope it will be for you too!!

Much Love

Food Gratitude

People in Cuba





As you may or may not know I spent the lat 10 days in Cuba!  I didn’t just go MIA 🙂

One of the places on my bucket list before it really changed as I so wanted to photograph there.



I don’t know where to begin with my experience – lets just say it was very eye opening and yes I did get to feed my photography appetite rather well!



At the same time there is not internet allowed in homes there, so if you can find a store to buy a card, actually you can find a card much easier not eh street but you will pay 2 – 4 times the amount of a card from the store.  You need a wifi card to get on the internet – it’s good for an hour (or so it says – I lost 4 cards for less than 30 mins in time) and you have to find a wifi park  – some higher end hotels will have wifi.



It is funny to see 100 or or so people all on their phones in one area – and when there is this many there is no chance of getting on the internet – i did well to log on and then check my email which in itself took awhile as it’s all dial up – OMG – won’t be taking wifi for granted any more!!

While in Cuba I met a guy who took me through all the back streets – places I am sure most people don’t go – he knew it well so I got to see lots and took many photos of Havana most people don’t see!



I am just sharing a few photos here as I have many – it was hard to choose and it may look like I took many cars photos – which I did – it was fun seeing so manifold cars but I took many other too and I will share more in upcoming posts!

I know my eyes got open in Cuba as I did not stay in an all inclusive place – I really got to see some of Cuba  – it is a third world country and at one time it was an extremely wealthy country.



It has opened my eyes up to have more Gratitude in my life and my daily choices of even some simple things.

What a way to start 2017 – Look out as some exciting things will be coming down the pipeline here!!

Create a Fantastic Day!

Much Love




New Years Resolutions Suck – Part 2

 New Years Resolutions Suck – Part 2

Mexico NY’s sunset


Went into a Mexican town near where I am staying to this restaurant that served the best shrimp ever.  We got the lat table and parking space as it was busy in this area with a New Years Day celebration going on al over and people were every where!

I got to watch the people having fun, playing, eating, celebrating – what joy!  Then I got to watch the sunset – and that is one of my most favourite things to do is watching the sun rise or set – such beauty and in the moment!!

New Years day in Mexico


Now that we know from Part one why New Years Resolutions suck – what can we do differently to make sure 2017 doesn’t turn out like 2016, 2015, 2014 and so on!

We all have things we want to improve on, work towards, change or let go of – go ahead and make that list of those things.

Now ask yourself why?  Why is it I want to have, be or do those things……..keep asking yourself why or even what will it mean?

When you’ve gone as far as you can now dig a little bit and ask how you will feel when you get there.


I want to lose 5 lbs


Because my clothes won’t feel so tight

What does that mean to me?

I can wear more of my clothes and feel better in my body.

How does that feel when I think of myself being able to wear more of my clothes and feel better in my body.

I will feel more confident, more attractive, healthier……..

What you are truly going for is the feeling or essence of what you desire – if there is no emotion behind it, there is no energy and it will not happen.


I want to lose 5 lbs


because, I do

Yes but why?

I don’t know, so I can fit in my clothes but it never happens, this probably won’t be any different this time (you may be thinking as well)

How will that make you feel?

I don’t know, better……


See the difference, better yet FEEL the difference.

Get some energy behind what you truly desire not just in New Year’s Resolutions but anything in life – E-motion is Energy in Motion – if there is truly just nothing there there will be nothing there.  Time to spend some time and get real and honest with yourself.  I you want to lose 5 lbs but have no interest in doing anything different and really don’t care if you first into more of your clothes or not – then just be honest with yourself so that later on you don’t have an excuse to mentally or verbally beat yourself up.

On you have the why, the emotion and the energy behind it – then you will more naturally move in directions that will help you on that path – all of a sudden some of your cravings may go down, or you just aren’t as interested in eating some of those foods, or tv well what a waste time lets go for a walk, get out in nature or do some stretching become a priority.

Pay attention though – you may get tested a few days in – go back read our why, the emotions and you may need to really bring those feelings to the forefront again as since we are human beings it can be easy to fall back into old patterns and programming – it takes minimum 21 days to change a habit / pattern as we are creating neuro-pathways.

I know you can do it though – you’ve got it in you.

Why settle for mediocrity where there is so much more out there!!

You deserve it!!

I’e got your back as I’ve been there before!!

Have an amazing day and get in touch with your why and feelings!!

Life will never be the same!




For al little more on this I will be doing my first FB live later today – will keep you posted on time!



Why New Years Resolutions Suck!!

Why New Years Resolutions Suck!!


You have 2 choices in life

– to live the life you were born to live


– live the life you were conditioned to live!!

The greatest source of pain in life is NOT living your Soul’s purpose.

Sometimes we need new eyes or vision to see clearer as to how we really want to be living!

2017 is going to be the year of truth and growth.

Lets not waste our time making the same New year’s resolutions as all the previous year.

Why do I say that?

These are the common resolutions people make each year

Lose Weight and Get Fit
Quit Smoking
Learn Something New
Eat Healthier and Diet
Get Out of Debt and Save Money
Spend More Time with Family
Travel to New Places
Be Less Stressed
Drink Less


AND the most broken ones.

Do any of these look familiar??

Sometimes all we see or focus on is what we have to give up, get through or the pain of change.


As I write this I am sitting in a quaint, little roadside cafe with organic gardens around, sunlight filtering through, beautiful music softly playing, fresh food available and open, nice people around – oh and I am wearing flip flops too!

I have learned this nurtures my Soul big time!!

I became honest with myself and what I truly desired!

What is the definition of insanity?

Keep doing the same things over and over yet expecting different results!  And I know that – I’ve been there many times!

I stopped doing NY’s resolutions years ago.  I started doing thing daily, weekly, monthly that in a years time I could look back,reflect and say holy shit – good job Jodi!!!  Look at how far you’ve come, look at where you were and where you are now!

It’s those little things, those little steps / choices that we make daily that over time can hugely shift our lives – it does not have to be the all or nothing on NY’s!

Look at gym memberships as an example – the first week in January the gym is crowded – you will wait for machines, classes will be jammed pack full and my March back to the same old.

Stop jumping in with the all or nothing mentality!

Remember – it’s YOUR life – each moment is a choice point – what are you choosing?

Is your foundation of yourself and your life solid and strong or not?

Stay tuned for Part 2 with some great questions to get you thinking about How Do You Want to be Living YOUR Life!!

Until then, have a fantastic New Years no matter what you are doing and prepare for 2017 to be a pivotal year!!

Much Love




Human Design Boxing Week Special

Human Design

Have you ever heard of Human Design?  You’re probably thinking wth is this??!!

A little over 2 years ago I had a very quick overview of my design by someone researching it.  Never thought much more of it as it was so quick as I was needing to leave an event.

This past year I have been searching more and digging and I’ve been asking myself what is my true path in this life.  I felt out of sorts and out of place on my true calling.  Several months ago I was on Gaia and found this interview with Chetan Parkyn on Human Design and the interview fascinated.  So much so I went to his site, got my free design then upgraded to the $19.95.  It shared some things that tweaked my curiosity even more as it was tapping into me – the real me.  I needed more information as it was resonating big time with me so I jumped in got my designed read, bought books, trainings and just finished my certification to begin yet there is still more and I am excited at the journey.

I have bending friends and family and they have been blown away with how much insight it is sharing with them of themselves!!!


What is Human Design?

Human Design is a new, cutting-edge personality assessment tool that shows you your unique decision-making strategy, your special gifts and talents, where you carry your pain and your potential for healing and wisdom.

Human Design is a synthesis of Eastern and Western Astrology, the Chinese, I’Ching, The Kabbalah, the Hindu Chakra System and Quantum Physics. Your Human Design chart is calculated using your birth date, time and place.

If you’re like some people who is into personal growth, you’ve probably attended multiple personal growth seminars and read lots of books about manifesting “change” and creating success in your life. Maybe you’ve even studied specific techniques to help you release “blocks” and get yourself “unstuck”.
But you still haven’t seen the results you’ve been hoping for. (Even though you’ve been doing everything “right”.)

It’s not your fault.

The single most important reason you haven’t had the success you’ve been working so hard for is this:

A One Size Fits All Approach to Life Does NOT Work!


The same is true for us. We are all unique and designed to function in the way that is best for us.

Yet, we are all conditioned by our upbringing, education and society to try to act and create in one specific way.

For example, how many times have you tried to “Just Do It” and “Manifest Your Destiny” (just like the so-called experts have told you…) only to have your dearest efforts result in frustration, disappointment and even bitterness?

Maybe you’ve even felt like a failure, or that you lack “will power” and that you are weak and somehow broken.
The real reason why people get “stuck” or feel blocked in their life isn’t because they’re broken, screwing up or lacking in willpower and character.
It’s simply because they don’t really know who they are and how they operate.
In order to create what you want in your life, you have to:

– Know who you really are
– Know what you really want,
– Understand how to know what is right for you
– Make decisions that are correct for you
– Understand how your unique energetic blueprint operates in the world

If you don’t understand these five basic things, you’re probably bouncing around in your life acting like a nerve cell pretending to be a heart cell.

Understanding your Human Design is like having an instruction manual for your life. Your Human Design chart contains information that can help you:
– Understand your strengths and gifts
– Learn your life purpose
– Discover the Truth of Who You Are and Why you are here
– Master your unique money-making strategy
– Create relationships that are supportive, Joyful and good for you
– Find the best way for you to stay healthy & physically vibrant
– Get yourself “unstuck” and create what you want in your life.


It’s like having a true Soul connection!


Here is my chart – kind of funky looking eh?  Yet sooo much information about myself has been revealed!!

Human Design

If you are interested in having a Human Design session – I am offering my readers an introductory price of 50% off this Boxing Day WEEK special (sessions will take place in January). Regular price $150 / session

Now $75.

Pop me an email at  and provide your Birth Date and time and location and we will book your appointment in.

I so look forward to sharing more of you with you so that 2017 is NOT a repeat!!

There are many successful people that have tapped into Human Design and it has helped propel them on their true path, soul connection and alignment.

Create a authentic yet magical life!!
