What was I thinking when I got myself into this!!??

Just kidding 🙂

This one is called Dark Night of the Ego

For me it reflects life

There are good moments and bad,

and the bad may seem hard sometimes

but there is always the light,

it just takes a different perspective to see it!

That is what our Soul is asking!!

30 Days of Photos

30 Days of Photos

It’s a challenge and an experiment.

And I would love your help!!

https://jodiburke.com

We ALL See & Perceive Differently!!

 

For me, Photography is not just a means to an end; it can be a transformative storytelling tool with the power to heal, inspire and awaken.

The inspiration for my art comes from exploring and seeing the world thru the lens with a different perspective – whether it’s my Photography or  Life.

It’s a challenge for me – I am an old school photographer – I learned in film and yes even went to school to study it.  I did work a bit in the field as the Assistant Photographer at the Banff Center, and I  did 2 shows – hand coloured black and white Fine Art Photography.

I put my camera down to raise my kids but mostly as I resisted digital and…..here’s the biggie – never felt good enough!

Over time, ok years, that changed.

I created a  blog a few years back where I created healthy recipes so I needed to photograph the end results and through that learned some real basics, in digital yet in the back of my mind I kept saying one day I will do more art.

Well, I have been what I call ‘deep diving’ – another name for clearing or Dark Night of the Soul or Ego as I say and there is no more one day.

That is not what living is about ………for me anyways any longer!

So, I dived into learning Photoshop this past November and I am actually liking it now that I know some basics.

But, my mind has created all kinds of images and I need / want to learn how to produce them so I can create and share them.

The challenge is for me to learn and step up.

Now here is where you could possibly help or come in.

I am and have committed to creating a photo a day over the next 30 days so my skills grow and improve.

I am excited!!

People have said to me that I create emotive images / art.

When I post my images I am not going to say anything.

I would love it if you the observer just observed – take a breath, let go of anything and just be in the moment and be present with the new image.

Then check in with self, did the image evoke any feelings, if so what and where in the body.

Did you like something or not?

If so, either way – why or why not?

The next day I will follow up with my message or why I created the image – just to share.

It’s not about being right or wrong or agreeing with me / my perspective (ok even disagreeing :))

it’s about what you feel and where and if you have any judgments and why?

It’s just to bring awareness to your moment.

My tag line is Photography meets Consciousness.

And for me to really put myself out there – I have been hiding this aspect of me for way too long!!

See, the mind has questions, judgments, programs that run automatically, yet the heart is where answers are – most of us aren’t in our hearts enough.

For me to create art – I am creating from my heart, as I have learned to get out of my head more and I want to share my creations.

So please feel free to partake, leave a comment if desired, share with others if you like and any and all will be veery greatly appreciated!!

I will be posting here on my blog and also in my new Facebook page!!

With much Gratitude and Love

Jodi

PS – This starts May 1st!!

Change Your Perspective & See You In Everyone Else!

 

 every relationship was to reflect pieces back of yourself to yourself?
What you liked and what you didn’t like
you see in another
and what you see that you like you be more of
and what you see that you don’t like you look at what judgment, point of view or story
has got you triggered
so that you can let it go
and make more room for love
for yourself and another
because another is just a reflection of you.
Changes the perspective
doesn’t it??

don’t forget to check out my new book – A Story of Our Souls

 

New Book Release

New Book Release

It’s true – the book – A Story of Our Souls is finally live!!

The outline of this book came to me after being sick for 3 weeks and surrendering to just being.

Something that has not always come easy to me yet I have been learning to slow down.

This time I had no choice.  Instead of being frustrated I let go.

This is what came through when I did.

All the courses, research, learning, releasing, deep diving (as I call going deep within), peeling layers away, even being mentored finally all came together.

Things clicked while this book came through.

For me, being a truth seeker, I kept asking why as so much doesn’t make sense to me.

I knew there was more, I knew there were many lies and once you do take the red pill or start down the rabbit hole you soon learn we actually do know very little about existence here.

This book has quantum physics, science, truth, fiction and woowoo.

It may open your eyes, challenge your beliefs, engage you to start asking more questions or just be a good little story.

Whatever it is, enjoy it!!

Click here to read the first part.

Oh yeah and there are pictures too!

Here is the link again to read the first part.

If you prefer an e-book then click here.

Also, here are some reviews that have come in so far!!

 

Jodi has done a great job building the picture of being HUman in an energetic world. She makes it easy to understand how things work and how you fit into the Multiverse. Her images are so beautiful you can find yourself staring at them for minutes on end!

After reading Jodi’s book, I got to understand more of the meaning of ascension, DNA activation, the Soul and how this all fits t together.

It is a very compelling book that leaves one open to do their own investigation. Definitely opened my eyes and mind. I feel more awakened after reading this thought provoking book

For a difficult subject to write about, she made it easy for me to connect the dots.                                                Thx Jodi for making this reader friendly, as you helped expand the borders of my tent big time, while recognizing there is more than meets the eye.

  • David

 

The soul is an energy that’s not talked or even thought about that much. We pretty much have an awareness that we all have one, but don’t focus too much on its’ condition or origin.

The Story of Our Souls explores an evolution of the soul and offers a perspective of reality that will incite one’s curiosity and questioning “what if…” some of this is true.  Be prepared for a journey down some rabbit holes with a little quantum theory added for a mysterious, thought provoking, and wonderfully engaging read.

Remember, the Matrix was a documentary!

  • Gary

 

Wow! I loved your book!

This book takes the mind to places never before entered, at least by me.

For me it was finally the lessons you have been teaching me, and your introduction to investing in my journey through one of your listed Practitioners.

I am working on finding my vibrational energy and starting to work through my 3D delusions.

I especially love the use of the “Avatar” descriptor to explain energy, frequencies which for many are just imaginary concepts that one cannot fully put into perspective until now.   I love that “avatars” are simply different skins of our choice … your explanation on the DNA strands makes sense now.

Thanks Jodi for the great eye opener and much food for thought.

  • Ruth

 

Jodi’s book A Story of our Souls will keep you engaged with shear curiosity that will keep you turning the pages as she takes you on a journey about your soul. You will be inspired maybe mussed and defiantly thinking outside the box by the end of her story. If you enjoy books that will engage your mind and challenge the way you think or were taught to think I feel you will enjoy Jodi’s book I know I did!

The Truth Will Set You Free

The Truth Will Set You Free

https://jodiburke.com

When You are Living Your Truth there is Much More Flow

 

The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.

–  Gloria Steinen

We must unlearn what we have learned because a conditioned mind cannot comprehend the infinite.

–  unknown

Universe doesn’t speak English – it speaks in frequencies as in vibes.

The first step of change is to become aware of your own BS – belief systems or bull shit – same thing really 🙂

There are no others out there – whatever you see outside is your own reflection – your mind is creating all of this – it’s a movie and you are the lead role – is it a blockbuster or nightmare?

The Universe has shaken me to awaken me – I saw that quote and it was so fitting.  When shit happens we can either become victims or dive deep within to see what’s really going on and to clear the beliefs, patterns, programs so the real You can emerge.

It’s so worth it when you move through it – as the real You that has been covered up starts to emerge, that is the truth that will set you free!!

You Body Hears it All

Everybody has a part of her body that she doesn’t like, but I’ve stopped complaining about mine because I don’t want to critique nature’s handiwork… My job is simply to allow the light to shine out of the masterpiece.

~ Alfre Woodard

 

If Everything IS Energy and it is – your body is the place the Soul calls home – it hears every word you speak and every thought you think – you will have this body the rest of your life – why make it a battle ground – why not love it the way it is??

 

Are you letting your light shine or hiding in the darkness – by darkness I mean self judgments, criticism, lies about not being good enough, think enough etc……….

 

We are all like Snowflakes – each one is different, unique and beautiful – why try to be like someone else – that is not why we are here!!

Remember who you are!!

Internal Peace is Beauty

Quite the mind and the Soul will speak.

A quite mind is able to hear intuition over fear.

Silence isn’t empty – it’s full of answers.

The quiet ones are the most observant – we know more than you realize.

You have the answer – just get quiet enough to hear it!!

Living Beyond Bondage

Living Beyond Bondage

https://jodiburke.com

Emotional Eating is Self Imposed Abuse, Restriction, Trapment

Living Beyond Bondage came about for a Grant Proposal for Photography but mostly  for my 21 Days Food & You – Stop the Insanity Program AND the Raw, Naked and Beautiful Project.  Anyone who suffers from Emotional Eating will understand this and also benefit from the program hugely.  I will be sharing more on this as well in upcoming posts.

 

– Living Beyond Bondage –

We were all born pure, innocent and full of love.

Somewhere along the line the story got distorted.

https://jodiburke.com

All the Negative, Limited Loathing Self Talk

The drug of choice for many, especially women, is food.

Along with that drug often comes constant self criticizing, loathing, judging and obsessing about what one ate, didn’t eat, body size, shape and imperfections – no matter how small they may seem, it always gets distorted.

Yes, media, advertising, possibly parents, teachers, friends or siblings may play a role in somehow reminding us that we aren’t good enough the way we are IF we buy into it and believe it.

https://jodiburke.com

The start of De-Programming the mental Self Talk

It’s a disorder gone rampant, with over 91% of women disliking their bodies and themselves, many to an extreme. 80% of 13 yr old Canadian girls have been on a diet already and 95% of people with an eating disorder are between the ages of 12 – 25 yrs.

I know – I’ve been one of them.

https://jodiburke.com

Self Talk is Better – There is NOW Awareness of the Self Abuse Programming

The mental, emotional and often times physical bondage is excruciating – yet many hide it well from others.  The wires around the head represent the mental constructs of the programs, self talk and beliefs – none of which are self loving.

Stuffing down emotions, or better yet, not feeling them at all.

We often feel alone, fragmented and on our own keeping things bottled up inside.

We are caught in a vicious cycle of self depreciating, devaluing, loathing and often times self abusive – until we decide enough!!

https://jodiburke.com

Starting to Truly See the Lies We’ve Been Telling Ourselves!!!

Only 5 % of women naturally have the body type portrayed by women in the media and for which the other 91% are trying to compete, yet we continue to strive for something that truly is not the ‘norm.’

We aren’t good enough the way we are is the constant reminder.

The other 4% don’t have tv, internet or magazines and therefore  really, they are the free ones.

If we’re going to buy into stories, why not buy into self empowering ones?

Who truly decided what beauty is?

https://jodiburke.com

Waking Up to the Truth of Who You Are (Who I AM!!)

We all have a story to tell – we’re trying to make it a similar to one another and that is the start of the disconnect.

We are born and should be able to be our authentic selves and creatively express who we truly be through our gifts – not by trying to be like one another.

With the start of the disconnect we compare, judge, shut down and buy into someone else’s ideas of beauty and what we should look like and we start our own mantra of not being good enough.

Yet we are like snowflakes – each individually designed, beautiful and unique.

Some of us, remembering that, have broken free from that bondage – most of it being self imposed and mental self talk.

We decided that our lives weren’t about fighting our bodies, hating our bodies or ourselves or spending 95% of our time worrying about a few pounds or what we did / did not eat.

Cause it’s really not about food.

There were too many other beautiful, amazing things to see, feel, be and do in this lifetime.

That is the start of removing the bondage – you allow yourself to feel – ALL and reprogram the self talk.

The one thing that separates a food / body obsessive addiction is you have to learn to live with both, unlike most other addictions.

When one can truly do that – accept and love what is – then the bondage is gone and nothing is more freeing than that.

I know I am one of them!
