Remaining Calm Within is My Priority – Asst Photog – Dave Catt

When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to whats happening.  That’s where your power is!!!

Calm mind brings inner strength and self confidence, and that’s very important for good health.

     –  Dalai Lama

The calmest person in the room is always the most powerful.

     –  Eben Pagan

The measure of a person is not how they act when things go smoothly but how they act when they are challenged.

So much busyness, distractions, numbing out, lists of gotta do, stressed out people and some on – what do you choose to think, feel and do to remain calm, centred, peaceful, loving and powerful?

Live Beautifully!!

Energy is Always Moving

 

If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.

     –  Nikola Tesla

 Everything IS Energy, and that is all there is to it.

Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality.  It can be no other way.  This is not philosophy this is physics.

     –  Albert Einstein

 

Just had to share this image – I was doing some Long Exposure Photography the other day and this is one of the images – nothing special but I thought interesting.

Now I know there was a man in front this time moving about getting his things off the boat and to ride off yet all the other boats looked still – yet the water was moving a little bit yet I didn’t think I would get the image back that blurry.  Made me stop and remind myself that everything is energy and even though it looks stable or solid when viewed under a microscope it’s still moving even though it may be dense. Nothing stands still even though it may appear so.

If I was to have taken this photo regularly I would have stopped everything and captured the moment where it froze in time for that split second – totally different with a long exposure.

Big reference to life as well that I will dive into in the next post.!

Energy is always moving – it can never be destroyed or created just transformed – something to think about – IF Everything IS Energy – that includes thoughts AND emotions………

Change a thought – change a lot.

Being Spiritual

Soul Connection IS Spiritual

 

Being Spiritual to me means………

 

Hugging the trees,

Laughing with the flowers,

Watching the sunsets and seeing their beauty,

Listening to the birds sing,

Blessing the water,

Gazing up at the stars – wondering who lives there,

Following the things that bring me joy,

Being fully present in each moment,

Listening to my friends talk, – no really listening

Loving my self – as I would another,

Eating healthy foods for my body,

Smiling at others as I pass them on the street,

Knowing there is more than meets the eye (or ears, or……),

Letting go of all drama and low vibing things,

Being able to be creative and feel the inspiration,

Dancing under the moonlight,

Being naked with my body and seeing the beauty of it,

Unplugging from the matrix,

Believing in the unseen,

Choosing alternative therapies as often as possible,

Feeling grateful for my life and all,

Knowing we are all one,

Feeling the Love

oh yeah and fairy dust too – and lots of it!!

Mind Viruses

Mind Viruses

www.jodiburke.com

Mind Viruses are Old, Out Dated and Can be – Should be Replaced – Old Door in Cuba

Like computer viruses, successful or healthy mind viruses will tend to be hard for their victims to detect.  If you are the victim of one, the chances are that you won’t know it, and vigorously deny it.

     –  Richard Dawkins

When we transform our conscious and sub-conscious thoughts, we transform our lives and in the process help humanity evolve to a new level of understanding and peace.

     –  Dr Bruce Lipton

Our minds are fully programmable by age 7 according to Dr, Bruce Lipton.  He says he can look at a 7 year old and predict how they will be as an adult.

We are born with an open mind – just like buying a new computer.

We get downloads of programs – some great, good and some jut down right bad or ugly.

You know those ones that work against you – they run in the back ground and we think it’s us.  You know the ones, they go like this

‘You’re not good enough’ (or smart enough, rich enough, thin enough, pretty enough and so on)

‘Who do you think you are’

‘You’ll never be able to do that’

‘You’ve got to work harder’

even ones like well heart disease, or breast cancer or being overweight runs in the family.

We so believe them and listen to them thinking it’s us that we even start speaking them.

It’s not the truth.

They are just programs and programs like in a computer can be cleaned up, over written or better yet deleted.

Remember – does it come from Love? Real, unconditional – non-judgmental, high vibing love?

If not then it’s nothing but a big fat fucking lie and YOU have to power to change it!!!

That is not the truth of who you really are!!!

Do You Listen to Your Mind, Heart or Soul??

Mind – I’m worried

Heart – Just relax

Mind  – But I’m totally lost now

Heart – Just follow me

Mind – But you’ve never been there before

Heart – Trust me, You’ll love it

Soul – If the 2 of you would shut up, I will show you the map!!

Open the Door to Different Possibilities

 

The mind only knows programs and fears, the heart will never led you astray and the Soul knows the truth.

It knows why you are here and all your other lifetimes too.  It knows your Path, and who you truly are.

Do you know who you are at Soul level?

Most of us have forgotten and taken this human role petty seriously.

Akashic Records are all about your Soul.

Greater possibilities than what you are living and being right now.

The DNA that they told us that 97% is junk also holds al your Soul information and higher levels of Consciousness.

Things to consider if you are moving in the path of higher Consciousness and a Higher Vibe of Living!!

Letting Go

Letting Go

 

www.jodiburke.com

Stop Dragging Things or People that are NOT Truly Aligned with YOU!!

In the process of letting go, you will lose many things form the past, but you will find yourself.

     –  Deepak Chopra

Let go of the attachment, keep the lesson.

     –  L.J. Vanier

One of the most courageous decisions you’ll ever make is to finally let go of what is hurting your heart and soul.

     –  Brigitte Nicole

One of the hardest things to do in life is letting go of what  you thought was real.

     –  unknown

Once you realize YOU deserve better, Letting Go will be the best and easiest decision ever!!

 

When we let go, we create space for something better.

 

www.jodiburke.com

Cut the Cords and Attachments – Energy is Stronger than You May Realize

That can be a relationship, career, income, home, trip or……..

And Emotions…….

When we let go of anger, guilt, shame, regret, doubt, frustration, not good enough etc

We can replace them with Joy, Love, Gratitude, Bliss etc

There are things, people, emotions that can weigh us down or that we drag along yet once we let go we can see and feel how freeing it is – which means it wasn’t in our best choice to stay attached.

What do you choose?

We truly don’t know how good it can get as we have been programmed to settle for less than the best or go after false illusions.

Only YOU know Your truth – are you listening or unplugging from the false Matrix?

Truth is Love – starting with Self, Light – beginning with Cells, and Truth – knowing we are energy.

Letting go helps to realign with all of that.

It’s called awareness which is Consciousness and a Higher Vibe Living and Being

21 Days is a great place to start with a deeper Awareness!!

It All Starts with YOU!! Self Love is the new Cool

I would like to add that I decided to use that term to grab attention – especially for all the women out there who buy into the media bs and advertising subliminals of not being good enough, your body is perfect, you need this label to be someone in the world etc etc

It’s all just bs keeping everyone in states of comparison, judgement, self criticism – wear, use it or buy it because it brings you joy and nothing more.

Nothing outside of You defines You……..it starts within!!

Remember – if it’s not from Love (Joy is from Love) then it’s probably a BFFL.

Self Love is the new Cool!!

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

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

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

www.jodiburke.com

Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe

What is Higher Vibe Living?

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

EVERYTHING

So what are you choosing in your reality?

www.jodiburke.com

Cups of Fresh Fruit in Mexico

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

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

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

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!!

Things that Keep us Locked Up

IN this game called life we have been fed many lies, for instance that our genes play a role in disease, weight etc but in fact they only play 1% of that role – the rest is environment.  In other words our genes adapt.  They are liquid crystals – anyone who loves crystals knows the properties of them – so in our bodies our genes our liquid crystals – totally programmable – so what are you programming them with??  They also affect our DNA – can’t wait to share more on that – mind blowing but fun!

 

Chemicals from foods and vaccines? Negative or low vibing emotions like stress, dread, judgments (of self and others) or fear etc, drugs,tv and news, little to no body movement, little to no connection with nature or sunshine…………I could go on

or

Do Yoga or some kind of Body Movement – Photo Credit Sandra Wagman

Eating real foods – that aren’t processed or full of chemicals, use more natural forms of healing like homeopathy, herbs, essential oils etc, live in emotions of much Gratitude, Love, Joy and Bliss as you are truly on your path and connected with your Soul and Source, walk, do Yoga or hike, bike etc, spend time in nature either walking, hiking or growing a garden as some examples and walk barefoot in nature – one of the best ways to ground ourselves – at least an hour – my excuse for walking the beach when I am near one!! 🙂

When we go back to the basics in all areas of our lives and spend some time breathing, quieting the mind or meditating (so little to no tv) laughing lots, hugging loved ones and having such an attitude of Gratitude for all in your life – we actually do bring in more light – it’s the truth of who we are.

We did not come down here to get hard lessons – we came down here to each remember who we are and to truly step into our own divinity and creatively express who we truly be at a Soul level – and play like it was recess most of the time……..seriously…….who wrote the rules telling us it had to be hard, stressed, enslaved, full of chemicals so that when you could retire then you could have fun???

BS

You Aren’t Here to BE Like Everyone Else

Honour Life and it will honour you with more life – that is keeping things real – food, thoughts (anything not coming from Love is a BFFL) emotions (same as thoughts) and living your truth – that is how you can shine more light into the world.

Your Heart and Soul are the truth – are you able to hear them? Are you ready to step into the Light – your Light?

www.jodiburke.com

BE YOU – No Matter How it Looks to Others!!

If you are stressed, lost, confused, angry, not feeling well or healthy, or doing what you need to to pay the bills ( trust me I know all of these) then you have lost the connection………it’s never too late or too hard to re-connect!!

YOU deserve it – after all it is YOUR life!!

Much Love and Gratitde

My Journey with Food

My Journey with Food

www.jodiburke.com

A fabulous Raw Food Restaurant near Tampa

 

It’s taken me a little while to write this as I truly wanted to be transparent as it hasn’t always been pretty.  For many many years I kept it quiet, hidden as much as possible as the shame, guilt and embarrassment was high.

For many years I have had a love hate affair with food – ok yes my body too – they usually go hand in hand for many women!

I only started sharing my journey a few years ago with friends and family and now after reading stats and understanding on a deeper level or programs, beliefs etc I want to come out of the closet so to speak! 🙂

When I was 15 years old I started down the path of Anorexia which then turned into Bulimia which literally ran my life for almost 10 years.

My Anorexia never hospitalized me as my weight only dropped to about 88 pads – I’m only 5’2″ and was maybe even shorter then!  At about age 16 I also got into partying and smoking pot – so on weekends I would get the ‘munchies’ so at least my weight was ok – but I was not eating healthy and living healthy by any means.

I left for college at the big age of 17 and lived with an aunt and uncle in Toronto – she was big into health and ahead of her time so I learned a lot.  My first natural path Dr visit – alternative flours, honey instead of sugar etc – this was the early ’80’.  I even became an Aerobics instructor but boy did I battle with low self esteem and Bulimia.

After a couple of years of living in TO, I moved back to my home town and became a waitress and bartender – no – there was never any partying going on there!!  Over the next few years I went back to college, moved to Banff and then Nova Scotia – still mostly in the service industry and still struggling with my eating disorder yet when I was eating ‘normal’ I ate very healthy……….talk about incoherence in my being!

It did slow down a fair bit and I realized that I cycled – it was mostly Jan to May – hence in Canada the colder, darker months – no wonder I love being in Mexico – the sun and warmth nurture my soul big time.

While in Halifax I became part of a 12 week study group out of the hospital with approx 10 women who struggled with na eating disorder – the stories were crazy yet I felt ok and not alone.

Most people then didn’t understand what having an eating disorder was truly about as there was no internet (ok I am dating myself here) and well it’s food – eating when you are hungry, stop when you are full.

www.jodiburke.com

Real Food

Yeah right, sounds easy but in reality it’s not about the food at all – it’s just the drug of choice for many women instead of drugs, alcohol, gambling and even sex.

For some reason, at the time I was not aware, yet looking back on it I understand more now, but I faded out of my cycle.  I had 2 beautiful children – who kept me busy and I never worried about weight between running after them (not quite 14 months apart) and working even part time.  I felt I had conquered it – so much so I became a Certified Raw Food Chef and wrote some recipe books.  I was still and always have been big into eating healthy.

About 12 years later, I went through a year of some hard times, almost bankruptcy, moved across the country and stayed with my parents for almost 2 months and had to start over – things were tight and I watched myself get triggered.  I knew I hadn’t really gotten over it completely.

I dove into different modalities to help – EFT being the biggest one but many as main stream counselling did not work for me.  I am not knocking it as we are all different but I only used it about half a dozen times and always left feeling way worse than when I went in and I was left hanging as well time is up and my next client is here……….

I’ve had triggers in my life since, yet I know that when we emotionally eat we are stuffing down our feelings as we don’t want to feel – it may be too painful, overwhelming, confusing, stressing or yet it’s all Emotion – Energy in motion unless we block it and push it down. Energy modalities and self love have been a huge part of the journey

Once I started or better yet stopped pushing emotions down and got in touch with more of me, I started seeing patterns and programs in my life.

You can’t explain an eating disorder to most people – as the one thing that separates out an eating disorder or emotional eating is you can’t quit cold turkey like you can alcohol and drugs – you need to eat and food is everywhere.  It’s not always an easy battle but it’s so worth it as you get to re-claim more of you.  And the world needs all you and your light.

When we choose to go down a road of addiction – it’s a program as it’s run by the mind and it’s not a healthy one (and I will post more on that) – somewhere, usually before the age of 7 as that is when all programming is done we created some story of not being good enough (and more).

While driving around Vancouver 2 years ago I heard a show on Eating Disorders – it shocked me to know that 40% of 9 year old Canadian girls were or had been on a diet……are you kidding me?? What messages are we sending our children I thought!!

Now, I am not a counsellor or Dr – yet most Dr’s don’t know how to deal with this issue – as the success rate of overcoming an eating disorder is less than 30% from going into treatment……….something on many fronts is not working.  The stats on eating disorders is scary.  I’ve had my own personal journey so I know what it’s like to be in between the fridge and the toilet – in other words deep shit – so I get it!!

Where did we get so off?

www.jodiburke.com

Doing things that feed the Soul is important

I love eating healthy, I feel better – in more ways than one especially since I have become the master over my food and more importantly my emotions (for the most part after all I am still human and have them but they don’t control me like before).  I’ve created a 21 day email program to help intercept patterns and programming – it may seem different and it is!!  This is not dealing with hard core eating disorders yet it can and work well with any program or counselling one is going through..  I know – I’ve used all the tools and tips in the program – time and again.

We have to re-program – which we can do, we have to really up our self love, we need to stop buying into the bs media advertising of you aren’t good enough the way you are and get off of the processed foods and I will explain that part why in my next post.

I am going to share things with you that are out of the box – the box sucks, is too small and conforming and most of us don’t fit in it so stop trying to fit in – you were meant to stand out and shine your light.  It just got dimmed for awhile while you developed amnesia forgetting who you truly are at a deep – Soul level.

Part of my mission here on planet earth is to help wake women up to their uniqueness, their beauty, to unplug with the I am not good enough programming in the matrix (yes it is kind of like the movie!!) and to help you see that you are worth it!!

You may think it’s hippy dippy, out there, weird, different and it is – it has to be as look around at society and the world – how’s it working for many people??

Some are asleep and will never wake up – it’s not their journey possibly this lifetime, if you are reading this chances are you are waking up and know or want a different way!

 21 Days Food & You – is about breaking free – an email a day for 21 days and more.  You may not have a break thru experience in the 21 days – it may take going through it several times – who cares – it’s your journey and the one back to self and health is different for everyone.  That is the cool thing – you can re-do it over as many times as you need – programs run deep in us.

2018 is the year to step into more of you with more self love – are you ready?

Much Love

Jodi
