There often comes a point in both manifestation and transformation processes where you have to leave what you have known and has been secure, even when you can’t yet see what is next. That’s exactly where I am now with this move to the Boston area. Our house in Rochester sold for a great price in just 3 weeks. It’s a relief to see the SOLD sign in front of the house. And we are celebrating the manifestation of that quick sale. It is a testament to what can happen when energy is aligned.
Now if we only knew where we were going to live! That rather important piece of information–important at least to the part of me that likes to feel secure and know that I will have a roof over my head–has not yet revealed itself. In my new book, Create a World That Works, and in Transformational Presence Coach Training, we talk about Four Levels of Engagement–ways in which we engage with life each day. Those four levels are Drama, Situation, Choice, and Opportunity. It would be very easy to get caught in the Drama here or just move as quickly as possible to “fix” the Situation. But I’m choosing to stay with Choice and Opportunity.
And so Choice and Opportunity ask me for two things: 1) to hold the intention and vision for our next home introducing itself to us before the end of May–in other words, the right house will appear on the market at the right price with a seller who is motivated–and 2) to keep listening in the gap for all of the messages, learning, letting go, and inner shifts we are being asked to make during this transition. As I write, it occurs to me that we can either panic about not yet having a home to go to, or we can open to the possibility that the circumstance could actually offer its own great gifts. I choose the latter–admittedly, with some resistance. So I keep checking in with the resistance and doing my best to tend to its needs. And I hold the vision that our new home will appear at the perfect time.
And then I just have to trust the process. Standing in the abyss, I am reminded that this manifestation process has really been amazing thus far. So why should it not continue to be amazing? It can be if I am not attached to a specific outcome and will continue to ride the wave.
So that’s where I am–celebrating the first parts of the this manifestation project, trusting that the next steps will be revealed soon, and continuing to hold my vision for the perfect next home at the perfect time. Everything has pointed to this being the right move from back in December when the possibility first arose. There is a big wave here. I can’t control it, but I can sure use all of my skills to ride it all the way into our new life in Boston.
