Tips for Creating More Time in Your Day

Last week I found myself reading this article about people bashing Kylie Jenner for not washing her face long enough on Instagram.

Argh! The article popped up from a news site on my laptop. This is not how I wanted to be spending my time. Lol!

I decided to come up with a few tips to help you and me spend more time doing things we love instead of things we don’t.

You can still carve out time for celebrity gossip and Netflix binges. I just finished watching every episode of the BBC comedy, Miranda. (BTW, it is hilarious!)

I just want to help you make sure you are doing that while also living a life you love.

Watch the video above or read on for my tips!

TIPS FOR CREATING MORE TIME IN YOUR DAY

  1. Eliminate reminders or alerts on your phone and computer that ultimately distract you from the task at hand or getting things done or doing something you enjoy more.
  2. Write down a list of the things that you love to do. Hang this somewhere where you can see it regularly to remind yourself that you would rather be doing one of those things than scrolling through social media.
  3. Create positive reminders on your phone of things that make your heart sing. Schedule them to go off when you have a tendency to be zoning out.

HOW DO YOU CREATE MORE TIME IN YOUR DAY?

I share how I have done this in the video. Have fun creating more time in your day and doing more of what you love!

How to Create a Summer Vision Board

What kind of summer do you want?

How do you want to feel at the end of summer?

These are the questions I want you to ask yourself before diving into this project.

A vision board is a collage showing things you would like to attract to your life or shows the vibe of the life you desire.

Your vision board will focus on something specific, summer. To make a vision board, cut pictures and phrases out of magazines, print images from websites, and/or include your own photos in the collage.

Next, glue the images and words onto a piece of poster board and place it somewhere you can see it on a regular basis or in a journal if you are traveling this summer. It can be tucked inside or you can make it the cover like I did.

For more tips, watch my video below!

Spend time in front of your board every day – then spend at least 5 minutes every day visualizing how you would feel if everything on the board was your current reality.

Then act like the person you would if this was your reality right now.

When making decisions this summer, use your board as your guide.

Will this help me achieve my goal/s? 

I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to share your summer goals below in the comments.

Are you inspired you to create your own vision board? Show me on social media and tag @kerry_burki.

Manifesting Love in Paris

This week in 2003, I was in Paris with my older brother. When we were at the top of the Eiffel Tower I remember feeling like everyone was in love. 

I was dating someone casually at the time and I remember thinking at that moment that when I got back to Chicago that I would break it off. 

I stood up there and looked out over Paris and declared in my head that the next time I was in Paris, I would be in love. Madly in love. 

When I got back from that trip, I ended things with that boyfriend and then some friends set me up with Matt Burki. We had known each other for about two years as friends but the timing was perfect because we became inseparable.

That following December, he asked if I wanted to go to Paris for New Years. Of course, I said YES!

We went to the top of the Eiffel Tower and kissed. I was madly in love! It was freezing so I remember we weren’t up there long but the whole trip was magical.

I was kind of blown away by how the whole thing happened. When I first I had that thought at the top of the Eiffel Tower I didn’t really have a time frame. So to be back in less than a year was amazing!

I had not known about the concept of manifesting at this time. When I first learned about shifting your energy and asking the universe for what you want, I immediately remembered this story.

I try to live my whole life this way. At times I have forgotten and life becomes tough. Then I remember to remove things keeping me at a lower vibration, figure out what I want or how I want to feel and co-create with the universe (God/Spirit/Angels/Guides) to make it happen.

Your thoughts and emotions are powerful! You are worthy of your desires! Now go put them out into the universe and open yourself up to some magic!

The first 3 photos below are from my April trip with my older brother and the last ones are my December trip with Matt.

Spread Love – A Heart Chakra Meditation

When I feel like the world needs a bit more love and I wish I could help, I try to end my days with a special meditation in which I envision that I am sending love and compassion from my heart to the whole world.

When there are special people on my mind, I pause and focus on them for a bit during this meditation.

Guided Heart Chakra Meditation

  • Close your eyes.
  • Take some deep breaths through your nose.
  • Then let your breath relax.
  • Picture your heart center.
  • Imagine love and compassion in and around your heart as light.
  • Pick a color for the light.
  • Let that light grow to encompass your whole body.
  • Let it grow to encompass your house or apartment building and all of the people in it.
  • Visualize it expanding to your neighborhood and city.
  • Then your state and country.
  • Then neighboring countries.
  • Then the whole world.
  • Visualize the whole world in your loving and compassionate light.
  • You are sending your positive and loving energy to every person, place, and creature.
  • Breathe.
  • Relax.
  • Open your eyes and continue on with your day or keep them closed and go to sleep.

Repeat often.

It is so healing.

There is scientific research confirming the heart is sending out light and electromagnetic wave fields. I love this excerpt from the book Playing in the Unified Field by Carla Hannaford, PhD:

“All the neurotransmitters found in the brain are also found in the heart. The heart actually appears to have its own sensitivity to the world, and exhibits that with intelligence, to the extent that the brain energetically revolves around the heart, and not the other way around.

The heart generates an electromagnetic energy field (EMF) that is 60 times greater than the field of the brain (as measured externally by a SQUID). It is the largest EMF within the body system, extending 8–16 feet around the body. People’s hearts are powerful transmitters, constantly sending out light and electromagnetic wave fields. The physical “antennae” able to pick up these waves is the entire body with its sensory apparatus and huge heart field.”

*** I talk about thinking of a color of the light of love that you send from your heart and I want to share some ideas:

  • go with the first color that pops into your mind
  • use green because it is the color associated with the heart (Anahata) chakra
  • go traditional with pink or red
  • use white light for healing

Eventually, you will do this without listening to a recording. You can lie in bed and just use your imagination. You can also use it to send love to a specific person too. I LOVE doing that!

You are a compassionate and loving person.

Your heart can heal the world!

Dreamcatcher Class Photos

Wow! Wow! Wow! Two weeks ago I hosted 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:

The one above is from my friend, Alesia, who did the workshop online with us!

I love mine soooo much!!!!

We are planning a Spirit Animal one this summer! Be to stay in the loop!!!
