I've been thinking a lot lately about that need to be more conscious of my thoughts. Yes, I'm the day dreamy type that can let my thoughts run away and while I'm on autopilot perhaps I just don't realize what wishes I've made; while the other part of my mind is multitasking away doing something meaningless as the wishful intention of potential doom slips off into the cosmos wreaking havoc on my other genuine, well thought out intentions and goals.
There have been those times too that I've wished for things to happen because I was so emotional. I've wished people out of my life and into my life almost as easy as twinkling my nose! I can't say those wishes worked out very well either. They occurred at times when I was hot headed or desperate to fill some void (i.e. romantic or even platonic). Whichever it was it's not such a great mix with my fast acting, "Scorpio Magic". You know us Scorpios, don't you? It's all Water or Fire and sometimes both!
I think the worst thing about wishes is that sometimes we only THINK we know what we want. Most times it's the Ego trying to butt in dictating what to feel. As humans we have a tendancy to unknowingly put out a wish/intent into the Universe then forget it almost as fast as we fell into the "moment" that influenced our thinking. Just remember that wish didn't just desolve like your emotions do when you begin to calm down or have something happen to turn your feelings around. No way. That wish is still floating around there until you make it null and void, that is, if you even remember what you put out there.
Have you ever felt like the world was coming down on you; blaming others or the circumstances you feel you have no control of but can't seem to get out from under it? Ever think about what maybe you wished for or what intent you had that created a chain reaction? If you are not sure here are a few examples:
Wishing someone dead because maybe they are so mean to you when suddenly they really do get sick.
Scenarios that worsen things for YOU?
-Perhaps you are calm now and realize you were wrong and feel terribly guilty.
-Maybe they are a close family member and you are the only person who can take care of them.
-Maybe they are married to a nice person whom you actually like and now you MAY have contributed to burdoning an entired family.
-Let's not forget you may have just wished for someone to DIE. Horrible. How will that one come back to you?
I know you might be thinking, "Well how do you now that my wish caused all that?" I say, "How do you know it didn't?" Maybe it just helped a process along that was already occurring. At minimum, a wish like this one just adds to all the probabilities of the receiver. Have you ever had a time in your life when you know you have wished for something and it actually came true but not as you expected? We're not thinking about the BIG PICTURE! Our lives truly are one big math problem on the chalk board of life while the wish was only a fraction of the equation. Maybe your wish tipped the scale and changed the whole outcome.
Wishes, like the example, can not possibly go right. As most of us know any decision
created from emotion like anger, depression or deep sadness typically doesn't. In fact, call it Karma or whatever or want but wishes can back dire on your big time or be used back on you as a lesson. The other important thing to note is the Universe/God/Source gives us plenty of warning to pay attention and stop concocting those types of wishes!
Case in Point: One day I had a really, really challenging meeting with my merchants when I was assistant manager for this shopping center. I went home for lunch, threw myself on the coach and said, "Can we please just let some Mac truck just run over me and get this day over with?" It was not about 30 minutes later when I drove back to work that I got my answer. You know it, a Mac Truck drove through a stop sign almost right in front of me. Close call.
Anger-filled, frustrating words and thoughts are filled with way more firey energy, sending that baby straight to the top of the Cosmic to-do list. Oh yay, that's right. Wished you would have thought through it a little better eh? That's not the only type of wish that can go wrong.
I surfed the web tonight to find you a few more examples of wishes that could go wrong. I stumbled upon this one from a young man, it said, "please
get me a girlfriend! One who will love me, treat me right, won’t leave me, blah
Oh he will find a girlfriend alright. I bet he will find one to love him, treat him right, never want to leave and "blah blah blah..." too. He just left that one really wide open. BTW, What's "blah blah blah" in Universe talk? Ever say to yourself "I should have been more specific"? That is just looking for trouble there!
I've been in his position before though. I asked for the whole Knight in Shining Armor once; someone to love me and understand EXACTLY how I think, could relate to me and support whatever it was I wanted to do or be. Then came my Knight in Shining Armor (or tinfoil?), mirroring all the qualities I asked and I was never so confused for a long while as to why it got so complicated. Thank you Twinflame. Thank you Mirror. :) By the way, once you cross paths with a Soulmate or Twinflame and you begin to do some inner work on self, you may be rethinking that "won't leave me" part. Just sayin
If you are not convinced yet as to the importance of always being mindful with your wishes, think of the age old wish parents make when faced with their challenging kiddos: "I wish for your children grow up to be just like you are now!" How'd thaaat go? Grandparents? :)
What can you do to bring the best, most highest good in your life?
-Think about what you truly want to draw into your life when you are not emotional.
-Be mindful and conscious in your thinking at all times!
-Ask only for yourself and not for others as they have to decide on what is best for them. (different from asking for healing or a prayer)
...and finally; Think it; See it; Live it; Be it. If you really want something all you have to do is remember you already have it. All things are possible. Just remember all the possibilities are just waiting on your ATTENTION to them. Be careful!
Love & Light <3
