A Miracle: Rituals Work! Hallelujah!

April 4, 2008

Today, the Pope of the Church of the Asshole Neighbors is moving out.

That’s right, friends, the man who has made my life miserable for the last 5 years sold the apartment building and escrow closes today. The moving van showed yesterday and took away most of the detritus of his life, and a peek through the uncurtained windows reveal empty rooms.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Now here’s the groovy part. Here’s the really spiritual wowee kazaowee part.

In mid-February, I realized I couldn’t take it any more. I was going to lose my mind–his actions were making me crazy. I couldn’t concentrate, I couldn’t work, I couldn’t even be civil. I considered taking a leave of absence then I got sick. I had tried everything–and it was time to try the unconventional.

A lunar eclipse was coming and I decided to ride that wave of energy to make

SOMETHING HAPPEN.

And guess what, folks, it did: something happened.

I don’t know whether it was watching us smudge the house the day of the lunar eclipse and in the following days first with sage then frankinscense and myrhh, if it was the circle of protection we placed around the property, if it was seeing my friends write words in chalk on the concrete by my house, if it was listening to us sing “All We Need is Love.”

Maybe it was the ritual where we buried two birds who had died on my porch in odd ways in a whole he dug (his name his Doug!)

Maybe it was the prayers that Lucy and her friends did or the prayers my friends and I did the night of the lunar eclipse.

Maybe it was the energy of the blogosphere–4500 people read that post where I asked the universe for support in my time of need. That’s a huge response!

I think it was all of the above (plus maybe pressure the District Attorney’s office put on him with regards to abiding by the restraining order) that caused this man who was unwilling before the eclipse to list his apartment building at a sellable price to do so a few days after–and that a property that had been languishing on the market, at a time when the market is tanking, suddenly had 10 offers on it in as many days. The property went into escrow just before the moon was new. Escrow closed today as far as we know–and the moon is new tomorrow night…

ahhhh! breath in peace, breathe out joy

I called out to the world for support…thank you for your help.
