  1. Leslie,

    I found a house that I absolutely love. Well, I thought that I absolutely loved it. I walked through it in my mind, I spent a lot of time imagining it, imagining where my things were in the home, where my furniture was, how I would drive up and come through the door and set down my purse and folio, imagined my cats running up meowing for treats, soaking in the tub upstairs, watching the birds outside in the trees from the patio, touching the oak leaf and acorn bronze-burnished tiles in the kitchen, talking with my husband by the fire in the living room, even where I would put the Christmas tree.

    I would drive by the house imagining that I’d been to the grocery store and was heading home, or just coming home. Months went by as I did this. And 3 months ago someone else bought it. I hurt in my heart when I think about it and tears well up. I stopped driving by it. I don’t know what to do. I love that house. It’s the style and size and location that I want. And now it’s someone else’s house.

    Now, I KNOW that this works. I’ve has many, many examples show up in my life. Our money issues are nowhere near what they were 6 months ago. We have enough. We were even able to buy a new lawn mower! AND pay cash for it! Whoo-hoo! Silly thing to get excited about, still I am SO grateful.

    So, what happened with the house? Where did I loose the thread?

    1. Hi Jacqueline, Ohhhh I understand this situation well! That house on my ProsperTheFamily.com website was the same way. It got sold to someone else. It’s in that moment of disappointment when our faith is tested the most – THAT’S the moment that matters, even more so than all the time spent dreaming and feeling. When you’re thrown a curve ball like that, a great response is, “Well, THAT’S interesting…” and then choose to believe that either 1) It will still be yours at the right time (which is what happened with our house, it became available again later and our offer was accepted), or 2) There’s something better in store for you. When I get locked on to a dream, I always do better when I also add to it these thoughts/words: “All this, or something better.” By the law of Polarity, when things don’t go the way you want or expect them to, you must choose to believe that it’s GOOD, even if you don’t know or understand why. You CHOOSE it. You choose gratitude that it didn’t happen – even if you can’t think of any reason why it’s a blessing. THIS is what keeps you “on the thread”. It’s common to get disappointed and throw an idea away. It’s uncommon to receive the disappointment with faith. So either it’s just not the right time for you to be in that house, OR there’s an even better one still being prepared for you, as you continue to move forward in faith. Be thinking about what else you can do, to be ready to make an offer the next time it (or something better) comes along. We actually had a similar thing happen with an earlier house purchase – the one I fell in love with was sold to someone else. We chose to believe there must be something better and continued to get our ducks in a row. When OUR house showed up, we were AMAZED at it – it was even MORE than we had imagined – a tender mercy – and we were so GRATEFUL we didn’t get the first one. Imagine feeling THAT way about the house you end up in. Amazed and grateful that you didn’t end up with the first. Just some things to think about.

  2. Lester, I just listened to your belief breakthrough and was totally enthralled! Wow, but thinking back over a life of experience, it all fits together so beautifully. And the critical issue, the take-away, is how you (we) process the experiences (the world, the bumps, the bruises…), the dichotomies that struggle to capture our minds, thoughts, etc., leading to the chaos of life. Two quotes I’ve used somewhere in the past, “The appearance of things change according to the emotions and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” – Kahlil Gibran. And “The degree of one’s emotion varies inversely with one’s knowledge of the facts – the less you know the hotter you get.” – Bertrand Russell. I could find situations in management training where the Betrand Russell quote fit, but I was always troubled, knowing the Gibran approach was so much more appropriate. Anyway, thanks for the thot shot. Papa
