We were kept waiting past the date on our offer for a response from the sellers. It was a bit of a nail biter and I had to keep reminding myself to release attachments and allow divine right timing. On Tuesday, May 22nd, at our friends book release party (Finding Ultra http://www.amazon.com/Finding-Ultra-Rejecting-Becoming-Discovering/dp/0307952193), we received the phone call that they had verbally accepted our offer. I had checked in with Julia a couple of hours earlier and she said they would let us buy it. We were overjoyed!! Several days later, I went to catch up on my daily morning readings and look what I found!! This is from the book by Sarah Ban Breathnach, Simple Abundance: A Daybook or Comfort and Joy.
I love when synchronicities like this pop in and let you know spirit is behind you! The next day Wednesday we were supposed to get the signed offer back from the sellers. Around 11:30am, I checked in intuitively and “got” that they were in a place of fear, that they had no money to pay for seller expenses and closing costs. I called my agent and began to express how I felt connected to these people and it was very sad the financial situation they were in, they didn’t even want to be selling this home that they loved so much. I began crying and realized that I was processing their emotions, I started to get an occular migraine and went to my car to continue to process their emotions and realize that I needed to let it move through me. I never got a migraine. My agent told me that when she spoke to the sellers agent he expressed the very same concerns that I had “picked up on” and he was going to let them know that we would pay the closing costs. I continued to get a strong impression of what they needed and felt it was the right and loving thing to do, contrary to proper business or real estate procedures! I knew that if able, I should act from a place of love. My family agreed with me! There continued to be a lack of communication from the sellers agent and read into some things about him as well. Suffice it to say, he just wanted to close the deal and was with holding any information that might scare us off and continually not doing what he said was going to be done. I felt the need to show up at the property and we received permission to show it to my mother-in-law. On the way to pick her up, in a regular neighborhood, I saw another Roadrunner! Again with the synchronicity and the nature messages of things happening quickly. When we arrived at the house the grief was palpable. We quietly and quickly made our way through the home and down to the lake. As we were walking down the slope to the lake, 3 hawks flew overhead. Hawks symbolize a message. I felt that we would be hearing back from the buyers soon. As we approached the lake, 2 turtles quickly jumped into the water. Even though turtles are slow and careful creatures, these guys moved so quickly I barely caught site of them. Good news. We ended up walking all the way around the lake and were treated by sight after sight of beautiful nature. So many butterflies, baby ducks, a stork, a swan, geese and more. We quietly knocked on the door before we left to say goodbye and I was treated with a sad smile and the words, “we’ll talk to you soon.” I knew I had helped them by coming by some how and my mind was now at rest as to what they were going to ultimately do. They just needed more time. By Friday we finally had the signed counter offer and the elephant in the room was identified. It is a very sad situation and we really feel for them. I would have liked it much better if the agent was honest with us, the feeling of knowing you are being lied to is not much fun for me. The date they requested for escrow to close was July 18th, the exact date that Julia had told me a week earlier, insisting that it would be a 60 day escrow. Dang she is good!!
