Careful What You Wish For

Aladdin's lampThat’s a strange statement: “Be careful what you wish for” which is usually followed by “because you may just get it.”  You would think that you’d only wish for things that you want, so why be careful in the first place.  Why would we ever wish for something you don’t want?

Taming Your Gremlin: A Surprisingly Simple Method for Getting Out of Your Own Way

I think that statement is simply a caution to our subconscious to think through what we really want. Not what we’d like, but what we truly want.  And sometimes our biology forces us to want things that don’t serve us well. And how the hell does that happen? Shouldn’t our biology want good things for us?  Apparently not.

Apparently our biology is filled with our mortal thoughts and mindless Gremlins as Rick Carson talks about in the “Taming Your Gremlin” book.  So maybe it’s not us wishing for things but our Gremlins wishing for things on our behalf. It’s our internal psyche biology wishing for something that fulfills it’s needs but doesn’t serve our soul. Our Gremlins ask for things on our behalf without us knowing about it (a kind of mindless request) and this is probably what the “careful what you wish for” statement warns us about.

Wishing for something, wanting something deeply, can be an integral part of manifesting that thing into reality. Of course you have to want it without being attached to the outcome of getting it (future post on letting go of outcome shortly).

So here’s my question – “What have you wanted, asked the universe for, lately, and was it a mindful wish or was it Gremlin noise?”

See you on the wire
