Gremlins! Time to Take Control


It is a wonder we can function at all. Each of us has multiple personality types all crying for attention. Most of us think one way, work another, and feel in a personality style different from either working or thinking styles! And you question why you are sometimes confused?

On top of all that, there is our ego to deal with. Our ego has a representative that might be considered a lobbyist. You know, those people that are always talking to you, promoting their agenda, trying to convince you to do it their way. I call this little guy my gremlin, and he is always trying to sit up on my shoulder and whisper in my ear.

It is very important to know about gremlins. They hate change. (Change hurts) They do not like to take chances. (Bruised egos) No new relationships, no stepping out on a limb, no way! They love comfort, and feed on the negative emotions we all have within us.

Have you ever heard your gremlin whisper to you?

"You can't do that, you don't have enough experience!" (no confidence)

"Wait until tomorrow to finish this, you are tired and need some rest. Besides, who is going to notice?" (procrastination)

"You can't join them, they are better (smarter, prettier, richer) than you!" (jealousy)

We each have a gremlin who can also be called our ego. Our gremlin's voice is sometimes difficult to differentiate from our spirit voice or intuition. One of the keys to life is to learn this difference.

Here are some clues to recognize the gremlin:

Gremlins tend to be negative. Intuition is positive.

Gremlins are mind based. Intuition is heart based.

Gremlins preach procrastination. Intuition doesn't lie.

Gremlins hate change of status quo. Intuition leads you down your chosen path.

Make it a practice to listen closely for your gremlin. Gremlins are impossible to eliminate but they can be exposed, driven into a corner and controlled. Give your gremlin a name and and begin to recognize that you have the power to control it if you choose to use it!

Learn to trust your intuition. This is the universe giving the assistance you require.

To some this may be a little out in left field. I assure you it is not! All I ask is that you try!The worst that can happen is someone overhear you talking to yourself!"Hey Gremlin! I see you! Get back in your corner and stay there! I have no time or patience for your shenanigans today!"At best, you will gain control over that part of you that will lead you to believe anger, hate, greed, jealousy and procrastination are good things.
