Cleaning Your Space

Most people dust and vaccuum their home and keep it clean. Some not so much? When you have different people in and out of your home and personal space. That energy become absorbed in your energy field and your home.  This energy can affect how people interact with you and opportunities that open or don’t open up to you.

Just like you would shower everyday. You might want to pay attention to the energy around you. Using real incense or a smudge bundle can help get rid of this energy. Pay attention to how your incense smells next time you burn it. If it smells sour for any reason you might want to start to burn a purifying incense or a sage bundle to purify your space.

When you burn your incense again after the purification. It should not smell sour. If it does, you have more clearing to do. Salt is a purifier as well.  You might want to put salt in a small container such as a votive container.  This will absorb any heavy or negative energy that has come in with you.

Going Within

There are many of us, who have no clue who we really are? We don’t know how life works for us. What do I mean by that? Well most of us have been surrounded by others and never had a moment to intimately get to know ourselves. If you’re an empath, this can be its own kind of hell. Picking up everyone’s shit. Thinking that your depressed when your picking up on the people who live with you. Having headaches that aren’t yours.

You might have no idea what I’m talking about. Everyone should be required to live by themselves to actually get to know themselves. This means finding out what stuff is really yours and what is not. What stuff is just bleeding off another and dumping onto you. One thing, that I’ve learned is that the things I used to think were mine. Were in fact someone elses. That means facing the dark side of yourself and giving it a great big wet one.

Society, likes to shove all their dogma down our throats as though it is a fact. When really it is a form of control and shaming. A way to make people feel like shit about themselves so they won’t stand up for themselves. Won’t have more self-confidence. Once you intimately get to know yourself. You will never go back.  You learn that those parts, that you’ve been told are un-loveable are really strengths that have yet to be accepted.

When you start to accept all of who you are? You will find that you are finally becoming a whole person. That part of yourself that you wanted to eliminate will stop having its tantrums; when you finally accept it and allow it to play in more healthy ways. Sounds like parenting a child! In a way, it very much is. Reading parenting books might sound crazy but if you want to win this war that will be your best course.

This will help you integrate your shadow side, it will allow you to get to know yourself without judgement. Everyone hates to be judged, the shadow is no different. Schedule time with yourself so that you can start to allow it to heal and play. Think you’re the only one that didn’t get the manual on how the world works for you. Trying to move forward when no doors or window will open up. Many will say it’s all about taking action. If you’ve already taken many actions. Then you might want to examine what area of your life hasn’t had attention for sometime.

This answer might be about getting out in nature. It might be about actually taking time to enjoy live instead of allowing it to pass you by. When was the last time you actually played. Play isn’t only for children. After all that demon that you call your shadow didn’t just come out of no where. It came from being ignored and suppressed because it’s not acceptable. It is part of you whether you like it or not. It will come out less with less drama when it’s allowed to play more.

Play also allows you to move forward when everything else has been tried. Especially when your stuck tight and not knowing what you’re doing wrong. Play can be playing ball, listening to music, playing musical instruments. Writing, drawing or even painting. When we get out of balance our lives can suddenly seem like its hitting the pavement.

Most of us, were never taught what balance is? We only start to realize its out of control, when it starts to take on a life of its own. This is why the key is to get to know yourself so you can try to steer your life in the direction you want it to go.

Trying New Things?

There is nothing wrong with trying new things as long as it’s not triggering anxiety. If you’re trying something way out of your comfort zone. You might want to evaluate if it’s just the learning curve or if there financial risk that’s associated with it.

If you already have the foundation in place that’s one thing. If you don’t have any of the skill sets and its unfamiliar territory. Maybe its time to take a step back and not venture into this venture.

Trying new things should never cause severe anxiety attacks. If it does your not on the right track. Always listen to your inner guidance. It’s there for a reason. New things, should give you excitement or a calmness. These are internal gauges to know if your just spreading your wings a bit.

The advice from many books about, how if you don’t understand something. Don’t invest in it is a very wise one. If your going to try something out of your comfort zone, do it in baby steps. This way with each step you are building your confidence and not jumping off a cliff. There are so many ways we each can grow as a person each day. This growth can come in learning, reading or experiencing something new.

Make a list and mark it one through ten. One being easy or in your personal comfort zone. Ten being a bit of a stretch for you. The tenth one might be broken down into bite size pieces until can accomplish it with ease.

The Demise of the Corporate Economy

More businesses are very short-sighted when it comes to running their organizations. They are all about the quick buck. They don’t think long-term, They are using technology like it has all the answers without using any common sense. It’s like using a hammer to cut wood instead of a saw. Here’s the thing, different parts of the organization need to use different tools. These metrics serve no purpose when they aren’t being used correctly.

There is no margin calculated in for problems or errors in these formulas. Which can lead to wrong decision-making, planning and budgeting. There is this fast food mentality when it comes to metrics. No one is taking the time to use these tools correctly or with responsibility. It’s as though the main purpose is to suck the fun and life out of the process of a task.

Any error in these processes is met with severe consequences. These big organizations are trying to be something they aren’t. They try to act as though they’re open to new ideas or change but only on their time schedule. This is why small businesses will prevail. They don’t treat their employees like machines. They don’t jump on the latest toys. They know that people make mistakes and there can be errors and they figure them into the equation.

Large corporations are too busy running every part of their organization as though it’s an assembly line. This  model doesn’t work for accounting, IT or other parts of an organization. It’s insane and it doesn’t make any sense. You will have high turnover, unhappy employees who are burned out quickly. Lack of idea sharing because of how their treated.

Large companies try to save money by using tools that are designed for small businesses. Instead of using the tools that were designed for larger corporations. This causes the tools to bog down and work efficiently. These companies can go to the other side of the spectrum and use dangerous software which can compromise the organization with malware.

These are the same organizations throwing money at the politicians in elections. Is it any wonder our economy and government is a mess.

Personal Victories

All of us have goals or things that we want to do some day? It’s those moments, that you finally achieve them and are really happy or you come to the realization that what was all the Hoop La about? It might be because we realize we were really chasing someone else’s dream for acceptance.  When you really own your victories, it lets you know that other thing are within reach as well.

In some cases that bucket list is starting to get whittled away at. It’s like looking at a Rolodex of our life and gauging where we’re at and how far we’ve come and how far we’ve yet to go. Sometimes its a feeling that we are finally ready for one of those things on our list that never quite felt right before now. The Universe, can also be a pain in the ass too. Where nothing seems to line up to allow you to take the next step to complete the final piece of the task.

The nice part about these victories is that they’re yours. No one can ever take them away from you! It’s not about people pleasing. It’s about testing and pleasing yourself for your personal growth as a person. Sometimes we like what we’ve become and other times not so much. We are almost like our own person clay. We can always recreate ourselves and change what we don’t like. Whether it be ourselves, home, lives, career or friends.

We are either a completed piece of art or a work in progress depending on how we choose to look at ourselves!

Happiness

Happiness has been touted as something outside of one’s self . It tries to get us to believe that we are these helpless victims and that if we’re lucky we will find happiness. What a bunch of crap!

I recently had a client, who really believed that he needed this one person to complete him and find happiness. If this client had been a woman, people would describe this as the prince charming trap. A lot of religions promote this mentality as well. This is why so many people are unhappy.

Part of learning about happiness is about learning about yourself! Who you are? Who you are not? Who do you want to be? Learning that being selfish can in fact be a very good thing, it helps you set up boundaries! It helps you to say no to things that you don’t want to do. It help you to grow and discover new things. It helps you to take back your personal power!

I always get a kick out of people who freak out over Tarot decks. The two cards they usually go nuts over are the Devil  and the Death card. The Devil is the best one to get, it usually reminds you that you need to stop giving away your personal power and stop playing the starring role as the victim! It’s about set boundaries, be it with family, friends or co-workers. It actually gets you to finally participate in your own life. It helps you to move out of being stuck and unhappy. It allows you to let go of friends that aren’t where you’re at right now. This is in no way a rejection or a judgement on them. If your paths are meant to cross in the future they will.

Now to the Death card, people always assume this card means that someone is going to die! Well yes and no! It is the ending of how they’re life has been up to this point. It is the new beginning for how they want to move they’re life forward.  Examples: Single person is getting married. It is the death of they’re single life and the beginning of they’re married life. The Death card is a blessing since it means that there is a new beginning coming.

Happiness is within all of us, it was never outside of us. I’m not going to say this is a mind-set. It is actually about self discovery and uncovering or pulling back the layers on yourself and finding those great things about yourself that you love and like. This is not about someone’s opinion of your or they’re judgement of you. They don’t get to have a say in this! Why? Because this is not they’re life! If your constantly surrounded by people who tear you apart or toxic people. You might need to start cleaning house. Caller Id is our best friend and so is voice mail, start screening those calls. These are the best ways to get rid of toxic people if your lousy at boundaries.

You will start to notice the more these people aren’t in your life, the better you start to feel. You will finally find out what it feels like to be calm. Most people find out that they’re less depressed. Once you find that calmness and inner peace you will never let someone take that from you again. Surprise that is what happiness is! Being at peace with yourself whether you have someone in your life or not. It about not having Drama in your face 24 x 7.

Unfortunately, they didn’t do a movie about this! Why? It wouldn’t sell! So start taking life one day at a time and start seeing how you start to feel. Oh and be sure to hit the off button on the cell phone it allows for sometime to yourself that you’re not being tracked down by the electronic age.

A New Age

I think it’s very interesting that with the Depression we’ve been in since 2001. I am seeing more and more businesses start to crumble. The sheer greed of these share holders is amazing. It reminds me of another time, 1987-88. There was a new mall that had just opened up and it was demanding to hold shares of every store that was renting from them. These businesses agreed never thinking that these share holders would try to see their shares in such a short time causing these a big cascading effect on these businesses. The businesses started to fall like dominoes and the mall was soon having to look for more tenants as these business started to fail.

These were not new small business owners that were unseasoned. These were large businesses. I am seeing the same mistakes being made not only in retail businesses but large billion dollar corporations. Where the share holders are demanding to see their dividends or they’ll walk. FYI in bad economies all businesses put their money back into their businesses not paying out dividends like the share holders have won the lottery.

This is why the small business will start to surge fore-ward like a race horse that’s been held back by its handler so it can finally surge fore-ward ahead of the pack. In the finish line, it will be the small business owner that will win. The know their business from the ground up. They don’t answer to a willful temper tantrum child.

Most of these Organizations don’t fully understand technology and are under utilizing what they need to keep operating. I am starting to see drone people. This is not innovative or creative. When you have robot people, you have a stagnant organization. I’ve seen people who look like the glee club for the organization in their marketing departments. These organizations have become Cults where there people only know the organization. They can not even bring any new or fresh ideas to the table.

Business is so blind to staying alive ahead of its competition that its ignored key data. In the 1920’s it clearly showed that you do not get better results from your employees by working them over 8 hrs a day. You get burnt out and resentful employees that stop caring because you stopped caring about them.

As we get closer to the end of this year we will see more and more obvious mistakes of these large organizations as they start to tumble like dominoes. They’re era is starting to end with more and more people becoming dissatisfied with how they are being treated. When you have robot people, your more likely to have Postal people.

R.I.P large organizations and government will soon follow. This year will start to be the death of structures that trample Peoples civil rights.
