That’s a phrase that can scare us into law of attraction paralysis. The implication is that you must be careful what you ask for it because you’ll get it and you may not like it and you’ll be stuck with it.
I’m going to offer some clarity here. You are never stuck with anything. I said to a Religious Science minister many years ago, “I’m afraid to ask for something because I’m not sure what I want, and suppose I get it and it’s not what I want?” And she said to me, very breezily, “Well then, just create something else.” That was, as Oprah calls it, a lightbulb moment for me.
The light went on because there’s no shortage in spirit; there’s no limitation here. if I create something that I don’t like I can always create something else. Spirit is unlimited and we are always creating. We are never stuck with anything.
Everything can shift, everything can change; so never be afraid to ask for anything. If you want something and you are unsure of the specifics of how that should be, create from the feeling of having it. Then the details fill themselves in.
Alternatively, if you’ve created something that you no longer want, just create something new.
And if you want something else create that and if you want it to be different just shift focus and create something else. Because we are creative beings and we are creating new things all the time. That is what we are here to do!
