A Hitch in My Carefully Laid Plans

My long awaited move to Asheville NC is delayed. Tragically, I started my 47 hour drive Monday evening, pretty exhausted from 8 days of packing, too tired to be on the road, too eager to finally begin that I overrode common sense. 

Four blocks from my friend’s house, I drove up over the end of a concrete center divider which hit square on the oil pan and took out a chunk out of my engine block‼️‼️. So I’m sitting in Sebastopol till Friday, getting my engine replaced.  Only a small jolt for me so I’m fine and so is the car, except for a hole in the engine!  Very sad as I’d much rather be in the mountains now, though I need the deep rest I’m getting at my friend’s house.

What I don’t need is the expense of $7500 of buying and installing a used engine. 
Selling two-thirds of my stuff gave me a pleasant feeling of abundance around this trip. I can’t sacrifice that by draining my accounts for this engine - a bitter return to the life of struggle I’ve worked so hard to transmute. I’ve served this community long and well, yet events mostly covered overhead and salaries to produce them. I lived off my private practice. Good news is over 60% of my people do sessions by Zoom or phone already, so I take my practice with me, a solvency I’ve fought hard to regain - ever since getting the Temple. 

Sustaining the Temple 14 years through the downturn required a Chapter 13, so borrowing isn’t an option and anything changing my credit report might affect my ability to qualify for a rental in Asheville. 

Help me erase this threat to my new beginning as I answer the call to take this work to the East. Help me leave here financially free and able to rebuild my resources. 

Many riches here, and already Tantra teachers have been activated in my wake. 

May your generosity feel as good to you as it does to me. Each gift touches my heart and eases my concerns. 

Much love
