Treasure Map: Official 2009 Is HERE! - Page 4

post #61 of 444

Leaving Lurkerdom

So I was lurking around on the other TM thread and have known that this is exactly what I need, yet feel a little blocked by my circumstances about actually doing this which is why I only lurked on the other thread. Part of me feels like "I cant", but part of me also knows "I must". The story is.....

I'm technically homeless (leaving a bad relationship), staying with my parents but having to leave soon (they live in an age restricted park). So this means I'll most likely have to go into a shelter with DD. I don't have much of a clutter problem though I cleaned out lots of stuff before I moved the rest of my belongings into storage, so really only have basics to fill whatever will be my next home. And my parents wouldn't think much of me building a TM either, so it would just feel weird doing it here in an unsupportive enviro, but this is where I'll be doing it obviously. I've also been having some really good ideas and really active dreams lately related to the future, so now I just have to get into action...very aries.

So this is good in so many ways, right? It's like a completely clean slate for me to manifest a new life for DD and I. And we really need a lot to manifest for us this year; home, income, friends, etc.

How small can I make the TM? I'll have to transport it in my car for a bit, I have a safe place, but it wouldn't be visible until I'm in my own place. So should I do a written TM also? I really want a collage style TM cuz worded type things I'm not so good at reading it all again and again.... I'm guessing that it is our focus on it through the year that assists the manifestations, and pictures give me a bit more room to dream.

So I'm in this, somehow to get it done, cuz I've got to do this for DD and I. I read Tracy's article on the new moon, and it was really great for opening my eyes to the energies going on. And it made it clear how badly I need to do this cuz I've got several natal planets being uncomfortably activated by these transits. I'd like to address these within the TM. Is that a good idea? I'm a bit of an astrogeek, but don't have access to my astro books right now. These are some heavy, cathartic type aspects like: Natal Moon sign conj approaching TSaturn, Opposing TUranus, and Natal Jupiter conj TPluto, and my Natal Mercury is conj the NewMoon cluster. So should I try to address these in the TM, I'm guessing I would just use the astro houses to guide me where to put them in the 9 categories if I were to follow the bagua style map? Am I going overboard here?

Tomorrow I'm going to buy the magazines, I hope that's OK too, not too late. I know we were supposed to do that like a month ago.

Theia, way to go on manifesting safety for you and your little one, that's just the beginning. Make your tm as small as you need it to be.. or make it over multiple pages so they fit in a folder or notebook. You don't have to see it all the time so flipping through once a day or week will help keep your mind on what you want to create. Much success manifesting a job, a new place to live, and a whole new life!

And nope, you weren't supposed to buy your mags until now, so you're right on time mama!

I went out after dh got home this afternoon (he brought me a starbucks, got me right out of the funk I was in and got several new magazines and we both had fun flipping through them together. I got a house building mag (with a free back copy even), a family vacationing mag and a camping one Camping is something we have wanted to get into doing for a couple of years now, so when I saw that one I snagged it! I'm going to raid the boys gel pen collection and got some stickers that I happened to notice to pretty it up a bit

So tonight, dh is going to Naxx (WOW ) and I'm going treasure mapping :

Sarmis35 my thoughts are with you and your family


I popped out early to get printer ink and glue and picked up another mag, came home and did a sound (Ah) meditation and some yoga to an inner talk Cd (forgiving & letting go) and was feeling very inspired. Few hours later and I have images cut out and placed on my board but all of a sudden I have lost enthusiasm and am not even sure what I have mappe dis what I want. Last few weeks I have imagined my TM to be circular and to paint and draw at the moment it is egg shape and only cut outs. Think I am going to pop out on my bike to clear my head


ETA; I'm back from my ride and feeling inspired again : I've decided to keep the egg shape and images (gluing down some now that I'm sure of) but not to cut the board this way I can draw and paint in the area around the egg shape :bouncing: I feel much happier about this

Happy TMing everyone :

Theia,
given your situation I agree with CarriOfOZ. Keep it to a book so you can transport it and keepit close to you. Perhaps you will keep it in your purse.

also, keep your vision big....maybe you don't have to move to a shelter. I have been seeing on the news that people are now house sitting for houses that banks own. By having a person in there it keeps it from getting vandalized. Just a thought.

take each of your aspects and google them. I think you will find the info out there in cyberland. But I think you have a gist of the transtions going on. One thing you are processing is...only seeing the trees and not the forsest (saturn conjunt Moon in Virgo) while at the same time feeling like the Universe is capricious--punitive one minute; generous the next minute (uranus in Pisces). This is a dance many of us do but right now it is the lesson that is most important for you. Open up your vision a bit and bring in faith. That will balance the two energies.
hugs

Can anyone help me find a way to map being free from anger and rage? especially in my relationships with my beautiful children. Thank you :
post #66 of 444
Ooooh, I had such a cool idea for my treasure map!!! I'm excited!!! I think I will need to get some velcro, though . . . .

ETA: BTW, thank you Tracy, for your encouragement in putting my dream house on there.

I found the perfect house in the perfect place that I just love, listed for much less than it would have been listed for a year ago-- but we still can't afford it. But I am going to put it on my map anyway!

When I think of the opposite of anger and rage I think of feeling safe, loved, protected, secure. Trusting, feeling patient with the flow of the universe because you feel taken care of.

Thank you: I couldn't see how to take my focus off the anger. I am going to use this for myself:

"I radiate acceptance, I am deeply loved by others. Love surrounds me & protects me."

and in my family area I have a cut out 'mindfullness' to represent being present with my kids and I am watercolouring the words 'loved' 'secure' 'protected' 'safe' around their pictures

Thank you

Aurora - less than 6 inches for sure when all was said and done. We kept waiting and waiting for the "blizzard." I'm glad to know that other parts of the city actually got some good snow. We needed it so badly - I just wish we'd have gotten it.

I was too tired to finish my TM last night, so I am going to work on it today!

ahh, now i know why the pagan thread is so quiet! yer all over here!

i didnt read all FOUR pages, lol, but hugs to all in rough spots, and
magical mapping vibes to manifest marvelousness!

my whole plan is of course, unsuprisingly, changing as the energy flows thru... but it's so far been MUCH more fun and happy and vibrant than last year! and, somewhat impatient. anyone else finding that? sort of "yes, use this image now move on!" whereas i'm a real dithering sort typically, lol. (yes, libra<wink>)


i wanted to share something i'm finding really helpful for clearing out negatives (or just influences) before working on mapping... sort of like tapping/eft, but a much more... simplistic form (for those of you who are sick of my mentioning it, lol...) anyhow, i'm *loving* it, and i think it's really helping me "hear"/"see" my .. answers.. more clearly! click here for the video.

happy day two of mapping! huzzah!

OK, after the events of yesteray (and getting yet another crappy night's sleep) I am in a piss poor mood today. I'm crabby, I'm bitchy and I'm just all around angry.

I can't seem to snap out of it, and frankly, it's most likely more biological than psychological.

I'm trying to work on my map and NOTHING is happening. I'm not finding ANY images, just some words. I have TEN BRAND NEW MAGAZINES and Nothing. Nada. Zip.

I've got a list of affirmations I wrote yesterday, but I'm just in such a pissy mood that I don't even feel like typing them out. I dont' want a map that's just a bunch of words.

I feel like just bagging it and saying farkitol. But i know I need to do this. So what do I do... set it aside and HOPE that later or tomorrow I feel better? What if that doesn't happen? Do I just push through and make a shitty map full of negativity and anger? I don't think that's a very good idea.

I'm frustrated and pissed off. I looked so forward to this for so long and now it's just NOT coming together.

I just want to go curl up in a ball and cry... but, no, I can't because *I* am the only parent around. No, I don't have a babysitter I can call, so please don't suggest that.

Tracy,

Thanks for the guidance regarding the yucky stuff coming up. Both my kids have been sick all week, and I came down with a bad cold yesterday so I am not feeling very focused and energized.

Last year was my first TM and I had a blast. I felt so much energy and loved the result - my map was big and ambitious and I think it was what I needed at the time as I had recently started a new parenting and spiritual journey. Quite a few things on my map manifested, many didn't, and I'm ok with that.

I have looked thru 3 new mags and have yet to be inspired this year. My thoughts keep running to last year's map - wondering if an image is too similar to one from last year. I want this map to reflect the changes in my life, to acknowledge that I am in a different place in my journey now, but many of the things that did not yet manifest continue to be important to me. And even where I made progress, there may still be even more progress to make in that same area (like healthy eating, exercise, etc).

So I feel caught between the old and the new. Anyone else feel that tension?

Regards,
Theresa

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!

So I was all proud of myself because all night last night people were bothering me and coming over to the house and my kids were being more hyper than usual but I said NO! no, I am doing my TM!

So I sat my big pregnant booty on the couch and spent an unknown amount of time putting my beautiful TM together. It's smaller than I envisioned but I'm glad I did it that way and I didn't use the images or the amount of images I thought and started writing and coloring in but I'm a writer who responds to color so that makes sense!

Here I am all : last night and this morning and I come over here and....

.... yeah I don't know how i got it stuck in my head we were doing it Thursday night the 26th but I did and I didn't double check. Grrreeeeeat. :

How big of a boo boo did I make?

Wow- so much energy here! Love to all you wild Treasure Mappers!

I was feeling very little inspiration and then this morning I decided to make a Power Point TM! It's structure and ease (and at the same time the creativity it allows) are just what I need this year!

Way to go, Maggie! I'm still working on mine. Haven't printed anything, cut out anything, nothin'. I have found some images from the computer though, and the plan for the layout of my map is starting to come together in my mind. This one is going to be different than the last couple years, I think. We'll see how it goes when I put it together. Can't wait to start sharing our finished treasure maps!
