Why Are Our Hearts So Heavy ...

We woke up this morning .. despite the day being 080808 and we had few SMSes from friends to wish us 'May you be blessed with abundance, joy, fulfilment and most important unconditional love in your hearts' .. we had a kinda heavy feeling that something wasn't going to be right.

The morning went well with family members visited our place and agreed on few things that they would take after we moved out.  It settled our mind and one load off our shoulders.

Intuition is God's gift and it is important not to disregard it.  It's a message probably telling us to stay calm before the storm.  A subtle forewarned sign to still the mind and to let the heart at peace.  It notifies an early warning and prepared our souls - all in the name of love.

And so, we were deciding what to do for the rest of the day.  We hope to settle few important things.  Ah, and just as we were in the midst of prioritizing plans, Chiauw had to call and dropped us the bomb.

Chiauw:  I am at the site now and I have bad news.

Us:  Oh no, what's new now?

Chiauw:  The spare tiles at the balcony are now missing  and I am interrogating the contractors of their whereabout.  I have searched the whole house and they are not to be found.

Us:  We saw them last week.  They were still at the balcony.  Didn't take notice of them yesterday when we were with you at the site.

And there's no point making guesses now.  No point pointing fingers.  No point to stay angry.  In reality, the fact remains that the spare tiles are lost.  We just need to move on.  We just need to focus on the solution.

The missing spare tiles:

The Universe mystifies things that we may not comprehend them.  Only when we accept that we will be rewarded.  We just have to surrender and stop struggling.  In all her mysterious ways, something good is being delivered .. something big is in store. 

Though we wanted to keep the existing tiles from the previous owner, we had second thoughts about it on several occasions.  The tiles were still in good condition as the previous owner had them installed recently.  To keep them for the living and dining area would also save us some costs. 

The Universe knows best and we should just have faith following our initial thought.  Deep within our hearts, we wanted everything new.  For what is happening now, the Universe wants to give us the peace of mind as we often feel that we should not keep an 'old energy' from the previous owner.  We should give Reiki Sanctuary a new soul and, in doing so, we are set free.

During the first week of renovation, SanMei's contractors had chipped parts of the tiles even after Uncle Chong had done a good job to lay protection planks all over the area.  It is understandable that extra fine precision works must be given in cutting the edges and, in fact, they had done good job.  Where the tiles were affected, we had re-designed the area:

01.  Correction works from Dining to Kitchen

The missing tiles are to be replaced here:

02.  Correction Works outside Bedrooms

Intially, there were some parts chipped off near the door.  As there are no more extra tiles from the previous owner, we decided to expand the area and to lay teakwood instead.

We had the tiler to cut a bigger area and he did a very good job.  We can actually continue with the teakwood here.

Chiauw has given us few options:

01.  To lay teakwood all around the dining area or
02.  To lay the black tiles continuing from kitchen up to the 'correction area' to dining.

We have decided to retile the whole Living and Dining areas.  We want to move on.  Though Chiauw is still negotiating for compensation with the current contractors - those assigned to work onsite this week, where she felt would be responsible for the missing tiles, we are not going to let today dragged us any further.

We will be thankful should we get a compensation.  We had actually paid Uncle Chong for the protection planks.  At the same time, the days for renovation permit are numbered.  Next, we anticipate headache choosing the right tiles.

We can only pray now and to bring back smile in our hearts.  Afterall, as in all our SMS messages received from our friends today - Let us be blessed with abundance, joy, fulfulment .. and let us have unconditional love to forgive the events, the people.

Those are words from the Universe .. those are messages that prepared us for the day.  We must accept its kindness, and love, and look at the brighter side.  No one is to be blamed .. afterall, we had actually unknowingly verbalised to the Universe what we wanted for Reiki Sanctuary. 

It was very subtle but we were actually struggling with our wants and needs.  What we truly wanted was for Reiki Sanctuary to breathe from all things new.  And now, we just have to honour that the Universe is giving it to us.  It is, definitely, a work of the the Universe to pour us with blessings.
