ever had an experience where everything you wanted had come
to you and THEN you discovered something that seemed to
spoil the entire event?
That's what happened to me last week when everything I asked
for regarding the sale of my house was granted--only the
sale did not go through.
I had been flying so high in the joy of selling my house to
the perfect buyer, that I really 'hit the wall' at high
speed, when the buyer failed to meet the closing deadline
(even though we extended it a few days!).
"What went wrong?"
"Why didn't I foresee that?"
"What happened with the Focus
"How could I have prevented this?"
I felt every type of emotion that we call "negative"--I
felt, abandoned, betrayed, confused, hurt, angry--you name
it and I felt it!
AND at the same time, I knew there was a lesson in this
First, I let my closest friends and supporters know what had
happened and how it made me feel. They did not let me down!
They continued to hold pure positive energy for me around
the sale of my house. One person asked: "Do you think there
is no one else who wants to buy your house?" (Well, I
secretly thought that no one else would meet all the
criteria I'd placed around my Focus Wheel.) Another friend
counselled, "Keep showing the house to as many people as
possible. It will sell again." Others sent me messages of
love and acceptance and expressed their conviction that the
house would sell again.
A friend really spoke to me by sharing her own personal
experience of having manifested the "perfect" situation,
only to have it turn into the "event from hell". She brought
to light the important lesson: You didn't do anything wrong.
You will always experience Contrast so that you can find out
what ELSE you want.
So, I added another spoke to my Focus Wheel: "The buyer of
this house eagerly completes the deal on time."
Then, I set my intention on FEELING GOOD AGAIN!
I found a place that sells packing boxes dirt cheap and
bought some large sized boxes. I mowed the grass, trimmed
the hedge and cleaned out the pond.
I took "gratitude walks" and gave thanks for my house, this
city and all the wonderful people and events that have taken
place here. I worked on projects that brought me great joy!
I watched a couple of funny movies with my daughter!! Yes! I
began to feel good again.
Within 24 hours the house had SOLD! again! And for more
Now, as we complete the conditions of sale, I have a
different attitude. I know that the house isn't sold until
the SOLD sign is in place. AND I know that if something
"seems" to go wrong, it is simply an opportunity to learn
something NEW about what I truly want.
CONTRAST is the Universe's way of giving us MORE of what
we truly want.
