Positive Thinking

Positive Affirmation Guided Meditation

Do you ever wonder:

How can I feel more confident, joyful, and grounded?

There are two places to start:

  1. How you talk to yourself every day
  2. How much meditation you do each week

The meditation I am sharing with you today will show you how simple it can be to bring both of those things into your life.

Positive Affirmation Guided Meditation

In about 5 minutes you will have the opportunity to slow down, tune in, and say positive things to yourself. Hooray!

I hope you bring this meditation into your life and start to see ways to make the positive affirmations become your reality. Read them all below and then listen to the meditation.

Dreamcatcher Class Photos

Wow! Wow! Wow! Two weeks ago I celebrated the launch of The Dreamcatcher Circle with a Catching Dreams: Intentional Creative Workshop. Once again my dear friend and amazing artist, Kristen Fagan, helped a group of women create heartfelt beauty. We began the workshop with breathwork and intention setting. I had each woman come over to use essential oils and their intuition to pick a card to help guide them during the workshop.

Below are the paintings halfway through:

Tip for Releasing “Bad” Habits, Situations, or People

So often when we want to release something in our lives we look at it from a negative standpoint. I want to put a positive spin on things around here.

I shared the image above and then did a live video on Facebook and Instagram today to talk about Releasing during the Waning Moon phase. I chatted a bit about my intention that I set on the New Moon to create a membership site here called The Dreamcatcher Circle.

Turns out what I really needed to be willing to release this week was pressure on myself to feel like I always have to be on and always getting things done.

I have learned that things get released with more ease when I am gentle with myself and act in ways that make me feel good both mentally and physically.

Example: I got my period this week and I felt like going to bed at 7:30 the other night. I do this during every cycle now. I used to NEVER do this. I kind of felt crummy all day and could tell that my thoughts were going negative too.

Now that I have practiced self-care for years, I listen to my body. I told my family that in order to be the best version of myself, I need to go to bed early tonight. It did wonders for me.

My big tip is when you are feeling like a certain way of living needs to be left behind:

Go do something that makes you feel like the best version of yourself.

Yoga, skateboarding, going to bed early during my cycle, getting on live videos and being honest, are some of the things that help me.

Go do something that makes you feel awesome!!! It will help you raise your vibration which means you are now an energetic match for that next level of living you are striving for. You will do it with ease instead of struggle.

Plus, it will help you release “bad” habits, situations, and people without having to focus on them!

Now that is the type of living I am talking about!

xo, Kerry

p.s. Following the phases of the moon has helped me be consistent with this type of work yet I want you to know that everything I share helps at ANYTIME!!!

Remind yourself that you are amazing!

You are amazing! 

Your smile, your heart, your drive.

It can be easy to get stuck in a loop of negative thoughts.

Those thoughts aren’t you.

You are light.

You are energy.

You are a force for positivity in the world.

Don’t let this past mistakes get you down.

They make you relatable, wise, strong, and unique.

Your past is your secret weapon.

Allow it to fuel you, not hinder you.

The present moment is your point of power.

Where do you want to go from here?

Ask for guidance!!!

Ask out loud:

“What is the next step I should take?”

Then stay open to guidance. (It may be in the form of a hunch, an email, an idea, a billboard, etc.)

Find yourself lost in negative thoughts again?

Recognize them and tell them to shut the hell up so you can listen to your inner guidance.

Laugh. Smile. Have fun.

Find out what helps the negative self-talk get quiet and then repeat often.

Things like relaxation or bike riding or family movie time.

Remind yourself that negative chatter is really just your ego resisting change.

Your dreams are possible.

You have everything you need right now.

Now go do something that future version of yourself that you daydream about would do. 

You have the support of the universe.

Kerry Burki – an Introduction

I feel like it is time for a proper introduction. My name is Kerry Burki. I live in Scottsdale, AZ. I have my degree in Religious Studies & have been practicing yoga, studying the metaphysical arts & spirituality since the late 90’s.

I lived in Chicago for many years where I became a yoga teacher & worked for creative arts companies while getting married (Matt, my soulmate!), having kids (2 sweet boys 6 & 9!), & making a home.

Life was good.

It wasn’t until I moved back to Arizona 5 years ago that things changed. I couldn’t find full-time work as a yoga teacher & I had a close family member in & out of hospitals.

I stopped doing everything I learned. At the end of the day, I just wanted to watch tv & zone out.

I felt lost. 

I started changing how I talked to myself. I realized I was saying a lot of mean & untrue things to myself all day long. I started working with affirmations & things went from there.

I started just doing a couple of yoga poses & focusing more on breathing, meditation, affirmations, visualizing, & following the phases of the moon. 

By infusing small bits into my day my life started to flow in ways it never had before.

Life became more magical.

I became a Life Coach, launched a magazine, & started Full Moon Yoga classes. In 2017, I did something that made me happy every day for the 40 days before my 40th birthday. I learned to skateboard. I started teaching Full Moon paddleboard classes.

That led me to complete 2 programs as a Metaphysical Adept & a Divine Resonance Practitioner. During my training, I created The Moon & Arrow Lodge.

It’s a nurturing & teaching space. I teach the tools that have worked for me.

More importantly, I want you to learn to love yourself and to go after the things in life that make your heart swell like I did.

I’ll be sharing more & I look forward to getting to know you more too.

XOXO!

How to gift yourself grace & receive guidance

It became obvious last week that I had taken on too much this holiday season. I felt overwhelmed and behind.

Can you relate?

Yes? Then you are not alone.

I thought my overwhelm was because I said yes to far too many things and tried to overdeliver on all of them. What I realized is that it was because I had said no to taking care of myself.

I was waking up late and not making time for my usual breathwork, meditation, prayer, and visualization throughout the day. I found myself rushing and then collapsing at the end of the day.

Sound familiar?

Don’t worry!

There is still time to give yourself the gift of grace and receive guidance this holiday season. 

I talked about doing this in our New Moon Circle in our new Facebook Group on Monday.

Here are a few tips for giving yourself and others grace:

Feeling all worked up and overwhelmed?

  • Take a moment and breathe. Inhale through your nose and exhale out of your mouth. Do this at least 3 times. Every time you relax a bit, your life will flow more effortless and ease.

(My older son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes over the summer and honestly, it feels like we have been going a mile a minute ever since with learning and insulin injections. Pausing to breathe consciously has been a helpful way for me to cope and thrive. That is why your see BREATHE posts through my Instagram feed.)

Finding that the behavior of others is putting you in a bad mood?

  • Remember that everyone is doing the best they can with the knowledge they have. That doesn’t mean their behavior is not annoying or possibly hurtful but try to remember that it is a reflection on them and their life experience and has nothing to do with you. (This might take time but can certainly help during this time of year!!!

Now let’s talk a bit about receiving over the holidays. I want you to remember that you are being guided. Life can be magical when you open up to receiving this guidance.

Here are a few tips for receiving guidance:

Looking for a parking spot or the perfect gift?

  • Ask your “runners” to go find it for you and then trust that they will. (Runners are guides that love to help you find things. You can view them as people, angels, guides, or simply energy.)

Worrying about things going wrong or not being perfect?

  • Ask God/Universe/Spirit to take your worries away. Literally, ask that in your head or out loud. Then ask what you should do next. You might hear the words “relax” or you might get an actual sign about what to do.

I have done all of these to help me get back to taking care of myself and enjoying this season to the fullest. They work!

Remember that you are a light in this world. Take care of yourself.

Happy Holidays!
