Last Sunday I was in Asheville - & when I'm there, I love attending Science of Mind services. The service was uplifting and hope inducing - I always find it so.
I was walking out the door to leave & felt I needed to go back inside & ask for a "treatment". There were a few people available....one I had received treatments from to finally make the decision to ultimately move to Asheville & then at another time, to find the right house in High Vista. And so it came to pass. She was in conversation with a woman standing next to her. I chose to speak the other woman this time.
She asked my name & request. The very next thing she asked was if I was REALLY ready to release my house. Wow! Powerful question. She hit the nail on the head for sure. A question that came up for me constantly.
When I said I hoped so, but still wasn't really sure, I had the gnawing feeling that I was still holding on. I told her I WANTED to release my house. She treated for the release of my house, the sale of the house (for a price I liked) to people who will love & respect the house, people I would feel good about selling my house to, and the entire experience to be a win-win process for all involved. Her prayers were powerful. When we were finished, I was moved to ask for her card. She was involved somehow in real estate. When it was time to leave, I noticed that it was 12:30.
Randy & I were starving & went to Earth Fare where we sat with Jayson & Rena & were busily talking & eating. My phone rang. It was my realtor, Edna who announced that we got a very strong offer. A couple that was crazy about my house. They were pre-approved, had $200,000 as a down payment. (I glanced at my watch....it was about 1:30). I countered the offer, they re-countered. We agreed. I cried. They arranged for an inspection the very next morning.
I was afraid of so much being wrong with the house. Many told me to buy a new furnace & "abandon" the oil tank, which would have cost approx $8,000. I was told I should convert to gas heat, etc - which would have cost even more. Randy wanted to replace the system so we could spend a few months in Asheville. I resisted. I just felt that it wasn't the right thing for me to do. All the above, plus more that I worried about passed the inspection. I met their request to pay only $1,000 towards repairs. I feel so good about myself for not giving in. It actually feels GREAT. I never would have re-couped that money. I also did not have major roof work done as suggested.
I'm really moving to Asheville. More to come on the emotional part of this journey.
