Letting go certainly wasn't easy, but knowing that spiritually this was had to happen, enabled me to let go and completely go with the flow. Trying to fight it, or hang on would have just made everything so much harder as it would have been working against and blocking the natural flow of energy. It took an enormous amount of trust and faith to get me through that period, but trust and faith were the huge lessons that I had to get to grips with. I put the house on the market and it was sold subject to contract within days..... it hadn't even been advertised properly! When you make the right choices, everything flows and goes the way it is meant to. Being spiritual and having my spirituality as the central core of my life and values does help during the tough times, and I called on the Angels so much! My mother even commented that I call on them so much that they must be worn out! Not at all, there are so many 'redundant' angels out there because people don't call on them enough; they are always glad to help. They want to help, they hate to see us struggling, but they won't help unless we ask, for we have free will and they cannot interfere with that.
Although the house sold quickly and with the help of dear friends we were busy shedding items, emptying the loft, cleaning etc, the actual legal process seemed to take forever. It was a very short chain, but the solicitor for the people at the bottom of the chain was doing everything according to the 'book', and it held things up considerably; which I really could have done without. Every morning I would pull a few angel cards for guidance and reassurance for myself, every morning the same cards came up : 'Trust', 'Divine Timing'; in other words, it would happen only when the time was right. Okay, okay, I am trusting but don't have the money to keep going! It was tough! Luckily my mother was able to lend me money so that I could keep up the mortgage payments and I repaid her as soon as completion had taken place.
Then it all moved forward suddenly, contracts were exchanged, completion date set and I organised for removal companies to come in and give me quotes: the one I felt was right for me (they not only did removals but would pack for me and had storage) was a lovely South African woman who commented on the many angel ornaments and crystals all round the house; for she too was a spiritual being and loved angels!
All this time I had been viewing flats, for now I needed ground floor accommodation as climbing stairs was proving too painful and difficult, but no agent would accept me until we had an exchange of contract date, so I did miss out on the most lovely flat. I did find one, ground floor, 2 bedrooms but no outside space and 2 other people had rejected it because of the living room carpet - it looked like it belonged in a pub from the 1970's! It was ghastly! I said I'd take it, so long as the landlord changed the carpet..... and it was agreed. Negotiations continued, I had to borrow more money in order to be able to put down a deposit and pay the first 6 months rent; as I couldn't prove an income. The final payment due to them luckily wasn't due to be paid until several days after completion, so I knew I'd have the money, but I couldn't move in until 3 weeks after moving out of the house. Oh boy, now what do I do? Visions of sleeping on sofa's filled my head which my back would not have coped with, but I knew I had to remain positive if this was going to work in my favour. That night when I went to bed, I called on the Angels and asked for help: please show me the way forward, show me what I need to do, please help me.
When I woke the next morning, I knew what I had to do: put something on Facebook! Because this was in my head as soon as I woke, I knew that this was a message from the Angels, it's the way it always works for me. So, I grabbed a cup of tea and switched on my laptop and put out a message on Facebook, asking if anyone had a room I could stay in the 3 weeks in between leaving the house and moving into the flat; and I was surprised, amazed and humbled by the messages I quickly received. Two from Yorkshire, one from Glasgow plus several others - I think it was 7 offers in total. It was important that I remained in Witney though, as I had GP appointments and a hospital appointment during this time. One message was from the mother of one of my eldest son's friends, a woman I had only met briefly twice before, saying that she had a nice double room available and inviting me to go round that evening to take a look. Which I did.
I was a bit nervous, as I didn't really know her well and wondered how it could work, but I needn't have worried. As I entered the house, I knew it was right, for there were ornaments of angels and fairies everywhere, and she was so warm and welcoming. She showed me round the house so I'd know where everything was, and the room was lovely - with a fabulous king sized bed! She gave me a key and invited me to start moving my stuff in the following week.
On the drive home, I thanked the Angels profusely, they had taken care of me, it would all work out and I wouldn't be homeless!
