Our Perceptions are Distorted

Our Perceptions are Distorted

www.jodiburke.com

Distorted Perceptions or Point of Views??

Our Perceptions are distorted – everything from how we show up in the world, beauty and what that is, our bodies, how we ‘should’ be living, food, and more.  I am and will be focused more on the areas of how we show up in the world, self love and our bodies after my struggles with an eating disorder and body plus being a Photographer – which if you haven’t seen the short video below you will understand what I mean.

It seems like since I’ve been in Mexico and doing some deep inner work things are becoming much clearer in a very deep way and it’s time for us to wake up to some truths of being plugged into the Matrix and the bs that comes out of it keeping us in perpetual loops of not being good enough especially women.

When we have stuff like this go on – no wonder we are confused about what real beauty is!!

The best way to start changes is within – believing and loving YOU and to stop buying into the fake advertising, magazines and all the other stuff along with it!!

Life is way too short to waste our energy believing in nothing but lies – Love is the strongest Vibe – start with You and see how life changes!!

Soar Like an Eagle

There is a Conscious part in you.  The pure Self. Learn to listen the voice of that Power.

Forget about self-image and self-judgment. It’s about self-love, and no one teaches you that in todays world.

Find it from within – Self-Love embodies pure Love – not an egotistical Love.

This is the only face and body you’re ever going to get, so be comfortable and happy in it. Own it. Own every aspect of who you are and present it to the world with the utmost pride.

Eagles soar high – rise above the mundane, the fear, the doubts and come back to love.

Surviving vs Thriving

Do you want to survive or thrive in your life?

Each moment we have is a choice – we get to choose how we feel, what we think and how we live our lives.  So what is the difference?

www.jodiburke.com

Feeling Alone?

Survival

  • choose the path of least resistance

  • settle in life

  • become part of the herd mentality

  • you blame outside circumstances or other people for things going wrong in your life

  • working a job you hate for a pay check

  • lie, cheat, steal or manipulate as you are not connected to the Universal energy or trusting of it

  • afraid to speak your mind or stand out or up for what you believe in (don’t really know what that is either)

  • you don’t listen to hear you listen to answer

  • in your head a lot trying to figure it out

  • don’t trust – very concrete in the 3D reality

  • change is scary

  • its usually about me (you)

www.jodiburke.com

Thriving Creates Dreams

Thriving

  •  know oneself or on the path of knowing oneself therefore one’s values and beliefs too

  •  In more states of Love, Joy, Bliss & Gratitude for your life and what you are choosing in it   knowing you are creating it ALL

  • you surround yourself with people who are doing, being and living the same way – higher vibe people

  •  you take care of yourself mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually 

  • you don’t come from a place of judgement, competition or needing to manipulate anyone as Love is a stronger vibe in your world and you love yourself and everyone as equals

  •  you know or at least are on the path of knowing how the Universe works 

  •  you do things and spend time doing things that you love doing and bring you joy or to help  make a difference in the world

  • maybe even you are becoming aware of the Matrix and getting out of it!! 🙂

    If Everything IS Energy – YOU are a Creator NOT a Victim –  it’s never to late to start thriving!!

My Soul Wanted Growth

My Soul Wanted Growth

My Soul Wanted Growth……..have you ever been in a situation that maybe didn’t make sense to you at the time but looking back on it later the clarity is more vivid?

www.jodiburke.com

Yes Yoga especially Yin has been a big part of my healing and growth

 

In December when I came down to Mexico to house sit, in the first 2 weeks I was here I had to 2 scenarios that altered my life, my direction I was going and honestly brought me to my knees.

I was in Mexico – didn’t know a soul, couldn’t speak the language and had to start going within, quieting the mind chatter, letting myself cry and feel the emotions I needed to (that is an upcoming post that I can’t wait to share how to move emotions through the body!!) – so interesting looking back how events unfolded (no matter how shitty they were) so I could truly step up!!

www.jodiburke.com

Ever get stuck in a prickly bush????

Plus I had some very amazing friends that held space for me even if it was over the phone – support network is good too – you guys know who you are and I am so grateful for you all!! xoxo

Things like that happen – whether emotionally or physically – yes even physically when we truly aren’t listening, paying attention or on the wrong path or we have distorted views – which most of us do or we would be enlightened.  It’s our Souls way of saying Wake up!!

www.jodiburke.com

Oldest Bar in New Orleans – oh if those walls could talk!!!

For many of us, myself included – it’s easy to take the victim role and tell our ‘story’ over and over and  ask questions like Why did this happen to me? What’s wrong with me? etc

www.jodiburke.com

Who wants to stay locked up in the past??? There is only NOW.

We don’t want to stay locked up in the past or old ways of being!

As we move along the path of becoming more Conscious and therefore taking responsibility for everything that happens in our life – cause after all we ARE the Creators of our lives – but we have been taught, programmed, dumbed down and lied to that we really aren’t in control and things just happen.

Bull shit!! 🙂

Thank goodness that Science is evolving and bridging with it Spirituality and yes crap doesn’t just happen to us – we create it into physical form from our thoughts, feelings and beliefs.  Hard do swallow sometimes I know.  Trust me I know, yet if everything is energy (and it is) and vibrates at different frequencies it shows us that we can and need to take responsibility IF we want different things, feelings and people inner lives.

When we take responsibility we ask different questions, we look at things, situations and people in our life as a reflection of our thoughts and beliefs – Nassim Haramein has shared his documented studies in the Connected Universe – I highly recommend watching it.  Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden and Dr. Joe Dispenza also have some amazing studies, facts and new ways of thinking AND being – I have learned lots!

With that being said, I have been diving in and out of Quantum Physics etc for a couple of years but couldn’t fully embody it.  When these events happened I knew I had to dive in and ask myself what was being reflected back to me and honestly be open to seeing things about myself I couldn’t or didn’t want to before!

What kind of energy was I vibrating (feeling), what were my thoughts, beliefs, patterns and how did I truly feel about myself.

www.jodiburke.com

Big Step Forward

I wanted to take a BIG leap forward! 🙂

I didn’t want to stay stuck and to keep telling the same story I wanted to move the energy!

I’ll be honest, wasn’t always easy – there were moments where I just wanted to go to the mall shopping (escaping some pain, going unconscious :)) and not deal with it but I knew the more I pushed through the layers of BS I would come out lighter and have more of me – the true authentic me.  It didn’t happen over night and I had to go through and re-experience some of it to truly embody the lessons and go deeper within.

Oh my!!!! The payoff has been worth it all.

Our true self is the essence of unconditional love, pure joy, bliss and gratitude – all the other things are just big fat fucking lies we tell ourselves from the stories we have created or have happened to us.

www.jodiburke.com

Higher Vibe Living and Being

Feeling the love even on a bad hair day with no make up – is also being vulnerable and authentic!

Growth is not always easy but I feel it’s worth every moment as when you are re-claiming more of you, living truly authentic, having much love for self and others, raising your vibration which allows for more consciousness.

Words cannot describe it at all – one has to experience it!

It’s NOT about being perfect – what is perfect? Who is perfect? Let go there is NO getting it right only evolution!

My world has opened up, new people and experiences have been coming in that have been amazing, my awareness has increased and my new path has been lit up – I can’t wait to share more (it’s like I am getting downloads ) as the world needs us to step into our true authentic selves and be the light and way showers for others – the more we do this is we re-claim our power and  self love then changes can be made here on planet earth like crazy!!

Know that whatever you are going through it’s only temporary and things can change fast – ask yourself better questions, what lesson can you learn, what do you need to see and how can you be more truthful with yourself – about ALL aspects of self.

We’ve all created stories, patterns and beliefs from our parents, teachers and society – not to make anyone wrong as everyone is doing the best they can but it’s time to tell different, more empowering, loving and intentional stories!

I will be sharing more tools, inspiration, thoughts and my journey AND reviving the Raw, Naked and Beautiful Project – Real, Authentic and Whole!!

www.jodiburke.com

When you embrace more of YOU – it’s very freeing!!

It’s time for many of us to step into ourselves and the lives we truly desire to live and create as it all starts within!!

I am so Grateful my Soul Wanted Growth – does yours?

Create a fantastic day!!!

Love What You Do Creates Higher Vibes

 

 

Law of Vibration

Law of Vibration

www.jodiburke.com

Law of Vibration

Law of Vibration – Just as a pebble can create vibrations that appear as ripples which travel outward in a body of water – your thoughts create vibrations and attracts similar vibrations (we are over 70% water btw) that manifest as circumstances and people in your life.

At any given moment you have a choice – it leads you closer to your spirit or further from it.

 

What are you choosing?

 

Embrace the discomfort or be enslaved by it -those are really the only two choices we have we when are activated!!

 

Believe it or not – but the knowledge you are looking for is already within your own consciousness waiting to be realized!!

 

Slow down, go into nature, breath, connect and fill the heart with love.

With Gratitude

Jodi

PS Don’t forget to laugh lots!! 🙂

My first video on Higher Vibe Living!

I decided to create a short  video to share from my heart about moving in the direction of Higher Vibe Living – why and what it means to me and reaching out to women especially women who have and do struggle with emotional eating – it’s really the same behind any pattern or addiction to  degree.

Since it is easier to share in words than writing from my heart I will start doing more vids – never thought I would!!  Yet I still will do my photography as I so enjoy that!!

Please feel free to leave a comment or share!

Have a fantastic day!!

Peace, Love, Gratitude – Higher Vibes!!

 

What exactly is High Vibes?

Why did I change my tag line?

I will be short here as while I was writing the post it got way too long lol way too much to share!!

In short for this post:

Everything is Energy and therefore everything has vibration!!

We need to raise our vibration to be more love & light!!

www.jodiburke.com

More Light & Love is Needed!!

From every thought you think, to feeling you feel to action you take.  To every piece of food you put in your body, to every piece in and on your body to everything in your house etc

Everything is Energy!

Science is and has been proving this – now it’s our time to wake up and learn it or I should say re-learn it as when we came to this experiment called planet Earth we actually did know it!

I’ve known much for awhile and kept quiet, yet the more I learn I realize the less I actually know!

Are you in love with your life? How you are living? Being the true authentic expression of who you really be? Are you feeding the body real foods or are you just eating so called things labelled as ‘food’ and not always in the present (paying attention as in not on your phone, in front of the tv or computer) or because you are bored, addicted or use it as an escape tool for truly feeling?

The word I was using before was Consciousness and I am learning it is highly misunderstood I feel – people say they are conscious but if you look at their lives or patterns or actions they take it’s clear they are not – me either – I am still learning and growing much, so I am not judging just being aware.

When one is really conscious they are basically enlightened – I am far from that yet I am moving in the direction of higher vibe living and have been and I know from my heart that is what I am here to share and help others awaken to their true selves, their essence and all the lies and bs we have been programmed to believe.

I won’t be focusing on all the lies and bs but will mention it as they are other people bringing much to light on those topics!! I would rather prefer to focus as much as possible on solutions, and things that are working and sharing what’s worked for me, different ways of thinking, feeling, eating and living.

www.jodiburke.com

Love is the Highest Vibration!

We are all underestimating our potential, power and love.

Sorry guys but especially us women – self love, self nurturing is so important now for everyone but especially women and not from an egotistical or narcissistic way but in a loving way. I also see a lot of low self worth, and  emotional eating and what the media etc has conditioned us to believe who we should be or what we should be doing from an interesting point of view – once you start waking up or on the path of a Higher Vibrational way of living and being.

So instead of writing out a long post I wanted to share from the heart – the video will be up shortly so stop back!!

With much Love & Gratitude

Your Life is a Relefection……..

Your Life is a Reflection…….

www.jodiburke.com

Your Life is a reflection and  extension of your mind – in other words, according to Quantum Physics – your life is a feed back loop showing you what you are thinking, believing and feeling.

Are you in love with your life? How you live, what you do or who you be?

Or not?

You are the creator and have the power to change.

It starts with a knowing of where you are and where you want to be and how you want to feel.

And moving in that direction.

Any state of being unless it’s love, joy and gratitude, that you hold for longer than about two minutes is a lie to who you really are and be………..interesting isn’t it? 🙂

We’ve created habits and patterns that don’t always serve us!

Remember, YOU are worth it!!

Raw, Naked and Beautiful Project

 

 

We are heading out on a road trip today.  It’s been a crazy, amazing time leading up to this moment and I’ve been so present in what I have been doing that I gave very little time to thinking about this trip – more about all of that in another post.

As we make our way down to Florida and back over a couple of months I want to connect with women who would like to have a private photo session either just for themselves or to be part of my book coming up – Raw, Naked and Beautiful.

I am looking for women who want to be part of the Conscious Feminine to share their stories of their journey of coming back to more of themselves, more love, more self love and are body proud!!!

I have been receiving messages from the women who I have been doing nude photography sessions with on how much it has furthered their journey, empowered them, healed them and more.

The more love and self love we can bring back and embody is powerful!!

It’s time to take back our power!

Are there other ways?  Of course, but this is one powerful way too, it may not speak to you but the women who have gone down the path of an eating disorder or similar, have had body issues, self esteem issues and who have bought into the lies by the advertising, media and more that we aren’t enough, nor good enough or again similar will get this!!

Please pass this on and or reach out to me as I would love to connect with you if this is resonating with you!!

 

Much Love

Jodi
