Preparing for Treasure Map 2009 - Page 2

post #21 of 451
My 2008 map included a possible pregnancy and here I am... pregnant! Massive decluttering (physical and emotional) is needed to fit another person into our home so I'm already on board with getting ready for TM 2009.

The real trick will be doing it while morning sickness has me in it's grip! And since March is still big time snow season here I wont be able to drag everything outside.... hmmmm... creative decluttering is needed!

I'm so excited for this year's treasure map. This will be my third year. My first was ok. I saw a lot of good results with last year's map. I'm excited to see what this year will bring. I started with decluttering, cleaning and organizing my house. I had my dad come over today and repair some things around the house. Can't wait. :

I've only really had one thing on my maps for the last 2 years come to pass (& even that I'm still only sure about half of it until this baby decided to make an appearance). Part of me is really excited about doing another map & part of me is wondering why I should bother.

In case I do one this time, does the decluttering we've slowly been doing since the fall count?

why don't you focus on decluttering thoughts that may or may not serve you anylonger.

Ask yourself a series of questions like "What do I feel about love?" "What do I feel is a good relationship and or friendship?" "What is my belief about money?" "what are my beliefs about motherhood, family..etc?"

I am not saying that any of these have clunkers in them.. I have no idea but I am wondering if the decluttering is more about those abstract concepts more than 'things'. Anyway, do a little journaling and see what comes up.

A reminder.....

Between Now and Treasure Map many of you are going to have a good idea what you are going to want on your treasure map.

But I need to remind you that you do NOT cut out any images or do any work on your map until the actual Treasure Map date.

Why?

Because we are in the balsamic phase of the Sun right now. We are in the endings and closings time. Which is not the same as the New. And as much as you are sure what will be on that map, the truth is that once we cross over on that date to the NEW energy expect changes in your mind to come up.

Ooooooooooo... I do believe I have stumbled upon EXACTLY what I need in my life right now...

I am super excited to read further, but I am headed out the door in a few minutes so I'll contain myself and add this thread to my subscriptions.

I know nothing about this topic except from quickly scanning the replies right here. It caught my eye for a reason, though, I am sure of that.

thanks for posting this tracy. i'm not bumming out because stuff didn't happen from this year's tm (because a couple really important things did, and most didn't). i'm just bumming about myself in a really big way, feeling like i, ahem, "chucked" things up in every area of my life and the biggest factor in me feeling that way is UNFINISHED BUSINESS. things i was supposed to do that i started and never completed. the calendar year came to a close and i was like, wth?! but this reminded me that, hello, life is not over and i can still bring this stuff to a close. i mean, i have to. reading this reminded me that i haven't failed to do these things - i just need a little more time and i will get them done. thank you!

but don't forget, Doubledutch, last year's TM is still in effect. Even if we are the final months of it. I have seen and personally experienced some of the bigger items on my Treasure Map actually arrive in my life the last 3 weeks of TM time. Literally a month before the New TM.

Perhaps this is your year to get stuff at the end of the map.

It is all good.

I read through the link higher up (first few posts, as suggested) and this IS exactly what I need right now! :

May I join?

In addition to decluttering our home (two rooms need that right now), is there anything else for me to focus on during this timeframe (before the Aries new moon)?

I was in a healing session earlier today and I have been doing a lot of healing lately (since September in a concentrated way). I am "decluttering" many old patterns and beliefs and emotions that have been held deeply in my body (and wrecking a bit of havoc). How does this type of thing fit in with the treasure mapping process?

Thank you for guidance.

a quick question from a total newbie.......if you have alot of decluttering to do (physical house type) and you don't get it all done.......that's ok - right?

i have been journaling alot this year and my motto has been that i am open and surrender myself to the journey....and i strongly believe this thread is where i am supposed to be

Does it have to be started by 12:05pm or can it be any time that day? I'm planning on having people over to work on it together but I really don't think anyone would be able to meet at that time.

I'm so excited for this!! I've done the map two years in a row now, and both times I've had some amazing results...especially this past one. I think that is in part because my DH is on board and we did it together, and when I'd get bummed out about things, he'd remind me to look at our board. I can't wait!

it does not have to be done at that exact time... the new moon phase will start at that time but the new will last for 3.5 days.
Ideally people will have their maps completed in the New phase but some people need the whole waxing moon (new to full).

This will be my 3rd map - Thank you Tracy!

The movement on my map has been amazing and really concrete. Just in the last month or so, a big shift is working itself out.

I'm excited for anyone new to the thread. It is a fun journey.

Just thinking about this the other day. My best girlfriend is doing one too!

subbing. This will be my first TM, and I am so excited!

i don't even know where my '08 tm is, let alone remember what all was on it. it was a list i sneakily wrote in a hotel room while my mom was watching tv and babe was sleeping. i can think of a couple things that have happened, and a couple that definitely haven't but still can and maybe are - i'd be interested to look at it again and see if there are things that have happened that i didn't realize were on there. i think it's in my old purse that i was using at the time i made it. i mean, wrote it, lol.

i half-assed it and hid it away, so in no way do i expect it to come to fruition. i'm just happy to realize that the "year" isn't really over just because it's 2009, and i'm dutifully getting ready for the new tm. i'm 100% in decluttering mode, and i now have a private work space where i can shamelessly display my big, bold tm. i'm going for it this year.

also, 3/25 is my son's birthday.
