Miracles........

So this morning I was feeling as if my mind was in some sort of fuggy fog, which is not a desirable state to be in because it can lead to the day descending into a downward slide.  

To try and coax my mind to be positive and actively engaged into it 'being a good day to be alive' I pulled a divination card out of my set of tarot cards. 

And 'A Miracle' came up. Oh, I thought, perhaps the house in France is going to sell, perhaps the buyers already interested in purchasing it are going to go through with the sale, perhaps the house we saw at the weekend could then become our new home,......and so on through all the list of things I would like to happen via 'A Miracle'. 

It was early in the day, about 6am. I had time to meditate and send out healing prayers to everyone in my Healing Book, and it came to me that perhaps I had not been wise in assuming that 'A Miracle' deserved to be thought of in such a way, that I didn't need any more miracles happening in my life, because my life was full of miracles....
- I am alive, which is a miracle.
- I have a good partner, and feel it is a miracle that we have come through so much together.
- We are living in a lovely cottage, in a lovely village in Shropshire, which is a lovely county of England, and were greeted upon arrival from France by a landlord  who welcomed us with much warmth. That we even got out of France was a miracle, as was the welcome we received here at the cottage. 
There were a lot of other miracles that occurred to me as I went through the morning, not of what I wanted as future miracles, but what miracles I had in my life right now. Not to be selfish with wanting the acquisition of more miracles to come along, that other people are perhaps more deserving of miracles in their own lives and if there was a certain amount of miracles to be had, then perhaps it would be best going to them. That was my thinking as I flitted through the hours of the day. 

Had a look at my emails, and surprise surprise! There was an email from France saying that the potential buyers of the farm were proceeding with the sale, and could we please send the current Taxe Fonciere (land tax) form to their Notaire (solicitor). Perhaps there was a spare Miracle coming our way, after all, I thought. 

However, although it had the hopes of being a potential miracle, I am having to unravel the nuts and bolts of it. But even as I write this, all of the miracles which have occurred in my life have always held the potential for disaster when they first arrive, and it is only by working through the miracle that I realise that it was indeed a miracle even if I did not at first know that it was one. 

So no great flash, bang, and wallop for me when a miracle arrives. It is just 'Here you go, another challenge for you, and you earn the 'miracle' when you have seen it through'. 

The nuts and bolts of today's miracle are...... yes, the sale is going through, but the barrier between the UK and France is widening now that Brexit is nearly done, which means that our French bank will not allow us access to it because we are now living in the UK, so we either have to go back to France to live, or write the farm off. And then if we do go to France again, our UK Bank will not allow us access to it either, and our incomes will diminish into zero. 

Ok, so not to worry. I keep thinking of the 'Miracles' card, which is reminding me of everything which had turned out alright in the end, thus rendering me awash with miracles which have only occurred to me in hindsight.  

Perhaps you, too, might have some miracles in your life, which are hidden to you at this time and just need seeing the light of day.........

Blessings to you, 
Bye for now,
Vx

It sounds very positive Vera. Great post.

I like your recurrent 'not to worry' phrase.
I didn't know 'Brexit is nearly done" (it's probably quiet about it
because of covid).
I'm sure things will get sorted out in the end, miracles or not.

Rosalea said...

Well that is like good news and bad news! What a mixed up situation. Here's hoping it all works out for you. There has to be a solution somehow.

Mama Pea said...

Omigosh, call it a miracle or just a really, really good thing, I am hoping for the sale of your property in France to go through! I so admire your outlook during what must seem at times an impossible situation. Come on, Miracle/Good Thing, please let dear Vera see an end to their leaving France and finding their forever home, and wonderful new beginning, in England. The end.

Vera, you make a very wise point - something I am often guilty of myself. I look for the big miracles, while the small ones are always right around me if I would look. The Mighty A is asleep in the couch across from me as I write. Finding him was a miracle (perhaps literally - if we had not found him and taken him in, we were told, he would not have made it much longer). Perhaps we have simply become more ungrateful than we like because we take such things for granted.

The bank - I am not a financial genius, but can you not wire the money from one account to another? Or even find a bank with multiple branches in both countries (we have to do this for our daughter that has gone to school overseas. Fees will eat one up).

NORTHSIDER: Thanks Dave.

Vera said...

DUTA, yes, Brexit is supposed to be done with by the end of the year, but it still looks like dragging on for a while yet. Politicians! A law unto themselves!

Vera said...

ROSELEA, even when things are looking quite black, like you said, a solution can always be found. But we are alright as we are, and that is a blessing!

Vera said...

MAMA PEA, thank you so much for your words, which, I must admit, had me in tears! Thank you again.

TOIRDHEALBHEACH BEUCAIL, I think we take a lot of things for granted, and tend to yearn for what we think will make our lives 'complete, and forget about we actually do have. I am guilty of that too.
As for the bank...... just before we left France the bank introduced a system which required mobile phone pin numbers to be used, as well as the normal on screen numbered code, to access our accounts. Unfortunately this new mobile phone pin number will not work from a mobile phone used outside of France, which means we can't get into the account. We can transfer money between the UK and France, that we can do, but we need to get into the French account to organise the transfer. It will work out, one way or another! There is always a way to be found! Thanks for the advice.

Not sure I like the sound of the bank complications but hopefully that can be sorted out. It will be good for you though if the property is sold. Fingers crossed for you that miracles do happen and you can get the money out without too many problems. Stay safe and take care, Diane

Hello Vera. Yes miracles are all around us when we open our eyes. I have always found our little catastrophes through life, have turned out in our favour.
We need to ask ourselves 'what is the blessing this disaster brings'.
Good luck for your sale.
Take care, Kathy

Tried to send you an email yesterday but it bounced so guess the French one does not work anymore. Happy Christmas and hope all is well. Diane
