Settling in to my new home, I have time to reflect on the miraculous flow of events that have brought me to this point, and how they unfolded.
I wasn’t looking to move although I had begun to feel that my son and I were outgrowing the sweet mews house that we had been renting. I had a week off work and, as you do, casually yet curiously browsed the property pages.
One thing led to another and, three days later, I found myself standing outside number 7, waiting for the agent to arrive. The property had just been redecorated and was yet to be marketed – I was the first and only person the agent was showing the property to.
Stepping inside confirmed for me what I had been feeling standing outside… this felt like home. The agent took the time to run a credit check right then and there standing in the kitchen of my new home, and the deal was pretty much done by the time we left the house an hour later.
The magic continued happening as my landlord agreed to let me give shorter notice than usual, I found an awesome and affordable team who could move me, my bid on eBay won a stunning fridge freezer at a price I could afford, and a woman I’d only recently met sold me her practically new washing machine in the brand I had been looking to find for a fraction of the cost when new.
I collected boxes from a number of different sources and when I started the packing process I found – amazingly – that I pretty much had not only the exact number of boxes I needed, but that the various sized boxes were exactly suited to my needs.
As I packed I took the time to feel into and listen to my body as to what item to pack in which box, and when I got to that last little bit of each box where I might have wondered what item would be the perfect piece to finish the box off with, I didn’t have to hesitate as before I knew it the perfect item was in my hand and being placed neatly in the last space left to fill the box.
I felt an incredible sense of completion with each box as I sealed it with packing tape. My awe of all that was happening spilled over into joy-filled laughter as I packed box after box in the same dedicated manner and before I knew it, most of our belongings were boxed and ready for the move.
I took three days off work to facilitate our move. The keys to our new home were handed over to me on the 8th and we moved on the 9th. My son and I had planned on cleaning the new house from top to bottom on the 8th before we moved in however, things didn’t unfold that way so we cleaned as much as we could taking great care to listen to our bodies and not exhaust ourselves.
I was able to borrow a carpet cleaner from a work colleague, so my son cleaned the carpets whilst I cleaned the kitchen and bathrooms. The joy I felt and carried within me throughout the cleaning process was quite amazing. I stepped into our new house that day with the intention of re-imprinting the energy within the house, and I felt an endless supply of support coming my way in doing so.
Equally, before handing back the keys to the mews house we had just vacated, I cleaned the house with the same feeling of joy and support. I was very clear about leaving this house with an energetic imprint of loving support equal to the imprint in our new home.
The unpacking process has been similar to the one of packing. Each item I have unpacked has its place determined almost before getting it out of the box, and the joy I felt in placing each item into the box before we moved is being felt and confirmed as I unpack one item at a time and the right placement in our new home is felt and found.
Some dear friends offered to help in what way they could, so I asked them to come over one Sunday to hang things for us. They lovingly supported us as we chose what to hang where and offered their input and clarity when something just didn’t feel quite right. Three Sundays and lots of laughter later, everything is hung and placed in such a way as to allow and enhance the flow of energy throughout our beautiful new home.
Curtains were needed for the new house, something I mentioned in passing to another friend before we moved in. He immediately offered me the two sets of curtains that had been left hanging in the house they had moved into a year previously which turned out to be beautifully custom made curtains, the right size and length as well as colour.
There were a few hiccups during the move, however these were minor things that didn’t affect the overall flow of the move and the space was there to accommodate these changes.
Because this move was not something I felt I had consciously decided on and planned – rather, it unfolded before me – there was no agenda and I had no expectation of how it was going to or should look.
Staying connected and maintaining a sense of playful awe throughout removed all the stress that is normally associated with a move, and my son and I were left to enjoy the whole process from start to finish.
Since choosing to become a student of Universal Medicine and The Way of The Livingness, I am finding that moments of loving support such as this are showing up in my life with more frequency and are becoming my new norm.
Returning to a Soul-full way of living is allowing me to re-connect to the gloriousness of my inner-most, which in turn allows for a plethora of support from the Ageless Wisdom to flow through me. Being connected with Soul brings a joyful, harmonious rhythm to life that can revolutionise everything – even something as stressful or seemingly inane as a house move.
