Your Three Wishes
Want to change your life? Here’s the quick answer: pay closer attention to your thoughts and the instructions you give your Genie. If that sounds too simple, just grab your magic lamp and read on…
Sometimes we think what we say to ourselves doesn’t matter, that these are just random or fleeting thoughts. The fact is, what you say to yourself (your Genie) really does matter and it will determine your fate for the day, this week… your entire life.
Where can you find this Genie? He is your subconscious mind. And here’s the rub: we don’t have an option as to whether or not we give him instructions. He pays attention to our every thought. Our only point of control is the type of instructions we provide.
If you’re thinking, “Life sucks. This is really lousy,” your Genie hears that. You may not think he is effected by this negative self-talk, but Genie takes it all in and attempts to give you what you have requested. He is very disciplined that way. The trouble is… he’s not real good at deciphering moods, doubts, and fears. In fact, your Genie has no reasoning capabilities whatsoever. That is your domain. His only job is to obey your commands.
When you tell yourself “today is going to be a bad day because that’s the way my ‘luck’ runs,” your Genie hears that and says, “Okay… I have received your wish… here is your bad day!” Of course, you didn’t mean for him to take that literally, and you may not have even realized you used up a wish when you had that thought.
