Grateful To The Universe For The Sign.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Ever grateful to have found The Secret.
As I write this story, I’m sitting at home in a country lockdown in India during the COVID -19 pandemic! I was thinking of what happened and today it struck to me that I must write this story for others to read and be inspired! I’m writing a story after a very very long time and I’m happy to do it yet again!
I live in Bangalore city in India and I visit Pondicherry every year, as a family tradition. I love that place as it always makes me happy and gives me peace of mind! Not far away is a township called Auroville and I’ve always had a dream to buy a house there and live there.
Throwback to May 2019, I was visiting with family and had found the perfect home I wanted to invest in and it was around 3 km from Auroville town. I was really excited I was getting to buy this property in my name! We went and saw the mock-up home and also the site that it would be constructed on. Everything was just perfect, the builder, architect, layouts, the finance also would work out as I wanted it to.
Later that year I was to visit and finalize the terms as I planned to take a loan. The builder made some excuses and refused to see us. I was quite disappointed and wanted to cancel the whole deal and idea of investing. I also decided to look for other houses in and around but was not satisfied and went back home disappointed. After a month the builder contacted us and we decided to visit again in December 2019. We met the builder and to my surprise, he told us something that came as a complete shock and I was not very happy with that. I still felt maybe it would be okay and I was willing to make a compromise. By then the construction of the building had started. At that moment I felt it was not what I wanted and I just wanted to forget the whole thing and go home.
We went back to the builder’s office to discuss the legalities and payment options. He was expecting me to pay at least 20% of the total value before March 2020. We went to meet some people to get the loan papers ready and meet the lawyer for some arrangements.
It all went well. The builder called us to arrange for another meeting but by then my intuition told me that I didn’t want to invest anymore because I was certain I could not arrange for the money in such a short time. So we called the builder and told him that.
Fast forward to today. We are in a pandemic, my country is in lockdown and I have no means of income. My work is at a standstill and I don’t know when I will be going back to my usual routine, as I own a preschool and there are so many complications in starting the next academic year.
All I want to say is that the Universe showed me a sign when I went to the site in December and I had a strong feeling it was not right to invest in the house. I told my mom I was okay to lose this house because deep down it didn’t feel right!
Today I am happy I made this decision and I told my mom a few days back that I am glad we did not invest given the current circumstances we are in.
I didn’t think too much when I was doing all this but I’m very happy that this time I listened to my intuition. I know I will find a better house and soon.
To all those who are reading this, I want you to know to never ignore your intuition. It is always right and will always guide you to make the right decisions.
Thank you, Universe!
