Companies That Have Become Extint

Before there was Walmart or Kmart! There was Woolsworth and Murphy these are what were call dime stores. They had a little of everything and an eatery as well. Some where they stopped being able to keep up with the changes in our society and were replaced by first Kmart and then Walmart.

We had die hard Department stores like Wards and Sears and JCPenney.  Macy’s replaced Donaldson’s. Then Wards instead of updating their clothing or trying to take the leap from the catalog to the internet. They slowly died! Sears was next, their grandma land clothing never got updated to more stylish trends. They lost a lot of money by putting their shoes out on the floor as the stolen rates went up. They made a lot of bad decisions with their high end brands. They also neglected to take advantage of the internet.

JCPenney and Macy’s are trying to steer they’re course by embracing the internet and making sure that they retain their stores and online orders. They are trying very hard to stay on top of their losses so it doesn’t get out of control.  Herberger’s lost it’s battle to stay in control, which was unfortunate. It was a nice high end store. As our economy ebs and flows it is having an impact on the retail market.

Those that are slow to change will die quickly, those that are paying attention will survive. It is a much harder time than the Great Depression. This economy has been almost hard to shake. One of the hardest obstacles will be for stores in malls, where there is low income housing nearby.  Poverty is the death of business. The theft rates sky rocket in areas of poverty.

In the next two to three years it will be interesting to see who is left?

When You are the Cause of Your Own Effect!

Some people call it being your own worst enemy. It’s interesting how their can be so many professional victims. Never looking in the mirror or seeing how they contributed to their own demise. I don’t know if it’s a lack of parenting or adulting! Some things are just pretty basic. If you don’t show up or show up late to events, work, etc. you will feel the pain! You will eventually be out of a job, not asked to attend.

It’s hard to pin down if this is just a particular generation or just a choice to be irresponsible? Yes, there can be self sabotage. At what point do you start to actually connect the dots? Most people learn for their mistakes or seeing the mistakes of others. When people choose to not take any responsibility for their part in it though; Are they really being an adult or an infant?

This is usually, where I take a step back and don’t point any of these things out to the person. It is their life and I’m not their parent. I don’t know it they just have a really hard head or they just will never get it? The Universe give us a lot of opportunities to make different choices and see it it leads to different outcomes.

It is at some point that my path will cross this persons and I will usually find that they’ve finally grown or are still clueless. As an empath, it’s really hard to watch the process when they continually fail. This is usually, when I excuse myself from the person’s life and wish them the best.

Dreams Oh so Real Dreams!

This week has been quite a time for multi-dimensions. What period are you in? What are the natural laws in that dimension? Who are the players! It’s been a mix of premonitions and different dimensions. Are you the star or one of the supporting characters? Do you know any of the supporting cast, only their wearing different masks on this stage.

Many people will say that this is just about problem solving. Maybe? Maybe not, is it the future or is it a message? It is modern or a little medieval? Can you fly or do you have magic in this dream or dimension? Oh the possibilities are endless! It’s so delicious! The one thing to be sure is that it won’t be boring. It will be better than any television story line.

Is it a comedy, a drama or a dramedy? This week has let all of us know that our lives are changing and our dreams are going up a notch. Some of what you are viewing is a possible future. Some of it might change and some of it might have fixed parts. The Universe is funny that way! It likes to keep you on your toes so you don’t get too comfortable.

So take a deep breath, relax and enjoy the show. Are you the victim or the participant in this stage? The Universe hates bystanders and victims! It will make you play whether you want too or not; so get up the courage to become your own hero or shero. Just don’t stand on the side lines. When you start to take back your power, it’s a beautiful thing for all the characters. It adds dimension and texture to your life.

A coward hides from life, a player and participant takes action. It does not matter if you win or fail. I only matters that you play! For by playing! You are standing up for your life! So make it the best life you can! All that required is that you try! You become your own super hero in those dreams, it’s sort of a practice run for your actual life out of the dream scape.

One Destination But Many Roads!

Next time your feeling like shit about your life. Take a deep breath and focus on your victories. You are on your own unique journey. No one can do it for you. It is about you growing and discovering things about your life that like and those things that you don’t. It is not about being shamed and being make to feel less than.

After all no one has a right to do that. They have not walked in your shoes or experienced any of those things that have made you uniquely you! Stop comparing yourself to others and don’t allow others to compare to other people either. You are here to live your life for you and not someone else.

Remember to start enforcing boundaries. Boundaries are our friend. They are to keep out those sacks of shit that have no business in our lives. Boundaries help us to decide if we still want those people in our lives and to them that their behavior will not be tolerated.

These roads and journeys will teach us about ourselves in ways we would never had the opportunity to before. It allows us to breath and grow. We learn how to adult and how to keep parts of our child self alive to nurture our creativity. It allows us to play and explore new and old things. It gives us opportunites to stretch ourselves and find out how strong we really are inside.

Along this journey, we will laugh and cry. We will meet new people and decide who to keep as friends. Who we will let go of so they can grow on their journey. Sometimes our paths will cross briefly. People will enter our lives, who will teach us things. Sometimes we will have things to share with them.

Life is a smoregasboard, so take advantage of the buffet. It’s there to be enjoyed. Then finally you will make it to the destination that you thought; you’d never reach!

There Is No Hiding From Life!

I know someone that had lot of things happen in their life that could be viewed as tragedies. This person expected to have many care takers in their life. What ended up happening was that those care takers were removed one by one. Forcing this person to take charge of their life and others. This person thought they could use a disability as a free pass from adulting. Turns out, even the Universe doesn’t buy that excuse. This person is now having to be the care taker of another persons life. Adulting can be one hell of a bitch. Some of the blame can be layed at that persons parents door step for doing nothing but being an enabler.

Many with this same disability are in the work force and living very productive lives. This person was allowed to use it as an excuse to hide from life. To step back from life almost like becoming a child again. Only some of the things didn’t go as planned. A sibling died, two years later their spouse died unexpectedly. They had to plan a funeral. They ran to another state to live because of the tax stucture. I found this weird a little bit, since the person was afraid to be in a big city. I’ve moved a lot when I was a kid, I woud think moving to another state would be more scary. One of their parents, died two years later. This one was a little easier but not by much. The funeral, was easier but the selling of a house was another story.  Now, their finding themselves having to manage a surviving parents life decisions because of health issues.What is the Universe teaching this person. COURAGE, it takes courage and strength. This person is having to face their fears whether they want to or not.

That saying that you can run but you can’t hide has never been truer. The Universe will not allow a coward to remain a coward in their own life. It will arrange circumstances to happen to make you participate in your life. No matter how good or ugly it gets. That added stress you see someone going thru. Sometimes, its because they’ve been sitting on the side lines all their life and its time for them to play whether they like it or not. That’s not to say that shit doesn’t happen to good people from time to time.

Is This Your’s or Mine?

One of the things that can be frustrating as an empath is the emotions that others start throwing around. Once you get better at discerning whose they are? It makes it much more easier to detach. Part of the learning curve is identifying if it belongs to a living or non-living person.

Just as living people have a certain smell that reminds you of them. They also have signature emotions too. If a relative used to be sad all the time you might need a visual cue. If your an empath, you will remember what it felt like to be around that person. For young children or teenagers, they might not even know what they’re feeling.

In our society, its so frowned down upon to express your feelings and emotions; depending on your family background. It usually isn’t until you live on your own that you begin to realize that those emotions might not have been yours. I remember having a client who was having a terrible headache. It wasn’t until I realized it wasn’t mine that the headache stopped for me.

Unfortunately, if only this was the case with the dead. Especially when they’re trying to communicate how they died. If they were dismembered it really isn’t fun. It’s only once you’ve finally confirmed some facts about the deceased that the feeling finally goes away. For young children and teens, if friend or family member has died and suffered from suicidial behavior or anxiety and is hanging around them. It can make these children start to feel these emotions.

It’s often why there might be one suicide after another in teens and very sensitive individuals. They can mistake those feelings for their own. The deceased person, doesn’t realize that they’re triggering this emotion in the living. They are usually just trying to not feel so lost. Because of churches protocal on suicide, it hasn’t helped either. Many who have committed suicide are afraid to cross over for fear of what awaits them on the other side.

This is why it’s so important for individuals to learn what their actual emotions and state of mind actually feels like. Usually this doesn’t happen until they are living alone if they ever do? Going on a personal retreat can be a growing experience. It will allow you to actually take the time to get to know yourself.

Revolution Energy

Coming to a location near you! Yes, coming to you as a community. I’m feeling it hitting in smaller ways. People are getting more and more pissed with their local governments and their childish crap. They’ve been holding communities hostage for far too long. I’m seeing it with how corporations treat their customers. It’s all around you and so in your face that you can no longer ignore it.

People have had enough of corporations , local government taking advantage and abusing their power and the public. Justices are going to find that if they take the side of those abusers that their days of having a job are numbered as well! People aren’t going to put up with being pushed one more step. Media blackouts are going to save their asses either.

The truth has an interesting way of rising to the surface. You can try to bury it all you want. Lies are still lies! Those that don’t change are going to find themselves buried in mud that won’t ever be able to rise from again. Career politicians have far out lived their usefulness in the publics eye. They will be prosecuted to the maximum of the law and no amount of back pedalling is going to save them.

In the day and age of transparency. Those that tell lies will have mere days to get their stories straight. Agendas are falling apart one by one all around their ears. The people are stepping up and not backing down. Their tired of this bullshit and that. They can see right through your crap. People are demanding accountability and those that don’t measure up will be replaced and not when their term is done either.

The theater, should get more interesting from here on out.
