far too familiar with this character
Ancient lore tells us that there's a magical genie who lives in a lamp and the person who possesses that lamp has the power to invoke wishes and desires beyond our wildest dreams.
If I told you that Genie lives in you, would you believe me? Maybe not.
But if I told you that there was another character who lives in you and complains, whines and was negative about your day to day life as well as your dreams, would you believe me then? I'll bet you would. Because we are all far too familiar with this character whom I call the Gremlin.
The Gremlin is that part of you who keeps your fears, anxieties and doubts alive and well. His entire purpose is to maintain control over you, keeping things status quo even if you're not happy with the status quo.
He believes his purpose is to keep you safe by not allowing you to take risks, speak up for yourself or create changes in your life that you know in your heart need changing. And, he definitely wants to make sure the Genie doesn't make an appearance. Because once the Genie shows up, the Gremlin knows he's no longer in charge.
For way too many years I lived with the Gremlin as the one in charge until I learned how to quiet him enough to awaken my Genie Within making him my full time partner and only allowing my Gremlin to visit occasionally.
Now you may ask, "Why allow the Gremlin to visit even occasionally?" Because it's important to realize your Gremlin will always be there. You're human and it's only natural to have both negative and positive thoughts show up throughout your life. But the trick is, to be aware of your Gremlin when he's around so you can consciously quiet him enough to allow yourself to feel a little bit better about a situation and give the Genie Within the chance to come to the surface and help you find better solutions, ask different questions and attract into your life more of what you do want, not what you don't want. Which, by the way, is what the Gremlin does. Attracts what you don't want.
