reality checks

What if you can attract whatever you want just by believing that you can have it? How precise is the universe in handing you what you want? There are lots of stories, in lots of cultures, that whisper "be careful what you ask for."

Imagine that a large cheque arrives in the mail. Sounds great, doesn't it? Now imagine that the cheque is part of settling an estate for someone you loved dearly. Or maybe it's a critical illness insurance cheque. That doesn't sound nearly as great. Be careful what you wish for.

Imagine that you move into your dream house. It's the right size, the right location, the furniture you have always wanted. Imagine that you move into it alone. Be careful what you wish for.

Imagine that you shift it up several notches and acquire the taste, the luxuries and the status you have always wanted. You are suddenly exactly where you knew you should be - and everyone who was once important in your life is back where you left them. Be careful what you wish for.

Be careful of the people who tell you that you can have whatever you believe you can have. They are right - and wrong. There are thousands of years of stories from cultures around the world that tell you wishes are powerful. Focus is powerful. You can have what you can see.

What will you have left in your blind spot?
