Hubby and I left Southern California two years ago. A few months before we moved I got this inspiration, intuitive message, whatever you want to call it, that we were moving by March 2016. We had lived in Southern California for eight years and we liked it. We never talked about moving. We were thirty minutes from the beach, which also had a dog beach. Our doggies loved going there. There were also several Buddhist temples and a Krishna temple that I visited quite often. But we also had this dream, long before we moved down south from the Bay Area, of having a senior dog and cat sanctuary. We had no idea how to make the dream become a reality so when I got the inspiration we were moving, we figured our sanctuary would happen when we moved to a rural area in Central California.
Two years later I am sitting here thinking out loud, or rather typing out loud. I consider myself a practicing Buddhist… and a Bohemian. I was never one for following rules created by society. I find those rules not only confining but just plain boring. What’s the fun being just like everyone else? This morning during meditation another inspiring thought popped in to my head. What if we found a property the size of a small farm (or maybe even a real farm) where we could have a commune type living space; where a few artists, musicians, healers, and of course our animal sanctuary could live? People could live in RVs, or yurts and we would live as much off grid as possible. We would use solar energy for sure.
I haven’t fleshed out the details because there’s a lot to consider and if I think about that part too much I might talk myself out of it. Before we left So-Cal, I didn’t think about the details either. I just knew we were moving. Everything fell naturally in to place. Hubby got a job quickly and we moved in to our rental home by late March. The Universe brought all the matching components together at the right time and it benefited everyone involved. (By the way, all our moves happened this way. We met the right people at the right time and boom! it happened).
So by typing this and putting my intention out there, I am hoping the Universe works it magic again.
