It has been an interesting process. We were initially attracting people with either a mental health disability or people who were affiliated somehow, like working in the field for example. We also attracted really young people, around age 19 to 21, mostly males. And the other pattern was people from overseas, like France, Ireland, and Australia, who wanted to work here for a certain period of time.
I was curious about all this. I thought, ‘What is happening that these patterns seem to recur?'
Now I do know about the law of attraction. By the way do you? If you’ve heard about or seen the movie ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne, you know what I’m talking about.
Michael Losier is also an expert - a local from Victoria - on the law of attraction, speaking professionally to groups about this (spiritual) principle. I recently re-heard him speak a few months ago after many years when I initially met him. It’s interesting how sometimes we need to re-hear a message before we get it or in order to re-learn and re-experience it, but in a different way.
You see, when I heard him speak recently I was relatively ‘on fire.’ At that time I was working on launching my co-creative children’s choir and was working on marketing in order to manifest or draw people to join. Actually, I should say recruit parents who would register their child(ren).
I know at times I can be what I call a ‘powerful manifestor’ as I have seen and experienced it many times in my life even for days and weeks at a time. However, recently with all the stresses (some not mentioned here) and lack of sleep in part because of it, I know I wasn’t at my best. This probably accounts for the turnout we had of potential roommates that declined or we did for one reason or another.
In the end, my roommate decided to move out because she was practically living at her work as a live-in caregiver. And for myself, I decided the same after she informed me of the news. The (main) reason: if it was challenging (enough) finding one roommate, did I want to bother finding another (two roommates in total)? A couple? Friends? No, definitely not!
If I had trusted myself, i.e., my intuition, I might have had the opportunity to live in this beautiful-looking place with what would work for me according to the advertisement I recently saw on craigslist. However, I didn’t and my roommate’s news came only a day later. If only! Too late now!
Thus, I highly recommend or admonish taking at least this one lesson from my experience: Always, always heed your intuition. Trust it. It guides you for a reason or reasons you may not know.
That’s interesting I say that now because I realize as I’m typing this that I felt guided to this home where I live (and have been for 1-1/2 years). That’s another story! But I’m keeping this short (since I’m actually combining two stories here and don’t want to get too long-winded).
And when I say all this, I am ‘listening’ to and heeding my words. I need to remember too, to trust again: myself, my intuition, the universe. Follow my heart and let go of my mind. That’s what I need to learn and re-learn. Perhaps that’s the lesson I’m to learn here?
