House of Cards

If I had to choose from a handful of words to describe myself, tenacious would definitely make the cut.  My husband would probably say utterly unrelenting is more accurate.  So then perhaps I would respond that I am persistent, and he might say that I am like a dog with a bone.  And that would be true.

Typically my driven personality meshes nicely with my man’s laid back style.  However it gets a little interesting when the topic of house shopping lands on the table.  And this weekend, it landed right there and of course it is super time sensitive.  So now we need to decided what to do.  We have one week or we lose it the lot.  It’s that elusive location that had been taken but had to be released because the buyer wanted a specific house too big for the space.  It is literally the last lot in the neighborhood that would fit our needs, and it became available this weekend.

The only tricky part of this gig is that we have to sell our current house sometime over the time period needed to build the new house (4-5 months).  It’s a matter of finding the right people for our current house who agree that it is worth what we believe it is worth.  As you probably know, the two sets of values don’t always equate.  It’s such a funny financial house of cards (funny in the “dear Lord, please help me out on this one” kind of funny).

I find myself listening really hard for my intuition to speak up.  Ironically I keep seeing “go for it!” signals everywhere I look, but I am still nervous about taking the plunge.  I believe in all wonderful possibilities.  I definitely believe that things can be easy and can work out better than you imagine they might.  However I find my mind swirling as I try to read the tea leaves in my house selling cup at the moment.

If there are any other intuitives out there who would possibly be willing to send some love and light my way, I would adore it if you would put a little energy this direction and let me know your feelings.  I typically have no problem going with my gut, but I would be extremely grateful for a little reassurance and insight on this scenario.  I would truly appreciate your intuitive feedback more than I can convey.

That’s it for me this weekend.  I am thankful to be calling it a night with some prayers, meditation and hopes for a wonderful week to come for us all.  Thanks again everyone.  Love and light always.   MoJo  :)

    Wish I had great wisdom to help you but I can offer a prayer for discernment in making the decision…and so I send one for you and also a scripture I love when facing such an issue…”All things work together for good to those that love God and are called according to His purpose”….I hope I’ve quoted it correctly…Diane

    MoJo, there are about seven different angles I could come at this with, but instead I am going to say that you already know that the answer is to “go for it.” Fear and/or love (aka FAITH) are the only two possible angles of action. Choose faith/love, and show the universe you mean business.
    And as a previous Realtor licensed in 2 states, let me add this: if your house is priced right, smells fresh, and shows well, it will sell within that allotted time period. Set the intention, and allow it to happen.
    Finally, we regret what we “didn’t buy,” not what we did. You said it your self that this is a wonderful opportunity, and last chance. In gestalt theory, here’s a little freebie tool for you that is in tomorrow’s blog (sneak preview): Take any question and turn it into a statement and FEEL the answer. Your grand B.S. detector will never lie. Instead of saying “Should we …” make it a statement of “We are….” How does that FEEL? I think I know….

    PS ~ Although I LOVE the ‘house of cards’ picture, affirming a house of cards is probably not the direction you really want to travel….
    Just sayin’. x

    From a purely logical stance. The market has started to ease in many areas and this is prme time to sell since people want to get into a new home over the summer and in time for a new school year. As my grandma always said Faith with work, work with faith and she always would sleep on it giving God the chance to answer. I too have decided to search for a new place to live and am listening to Spirit for guidance. I have not listened in the past and made some bad choices. Spirit never leads anyone down the wrong path only our egos do. Listen to your gut it knows you the best for it is Spirit talking to you. Whatever you decide is right. Believe it.
    All the best…Laurie
