Hi, can you elaborate on "waiting" years and "manifesting" years?

Oh yes, I forgot to add that I talked to a good healer friend of mine who made a wonderful suggestion as far as the "be careful what you wish for" ideology. She suggested that I trust Creator (or Spirit, or God, or the Universe, or insert your chosen word/words here) to know that when I ask for my home to be finished (we are currently going through MAJOR renovations) that doesn't mean that I am asking for something horrible to happen to my children or for my dh to lose his job so that we can have the time to finish our home. So, it's really a trust issue for me I feel...

I really like the tree image idea. It really resonates with me.

I've been busy cleaning and clearing. Kids closet and outside of fridge is taken care of today.

My next major step is to get some personalized Flower Essences to help me work through a few failed friendships that I just need to let go of. It's been a year and it is time. I don't think I can do it alone though.

possible duh question - can you use hand-drawings? if so, can you start practicing early, because, um...i'm not very good and will probably want to revise it a lot.

I'm officially in this year. After a few rough and transformative years, a lot of things seem to be coming together, and I think some active work, both physically cleaning out/cleaning up our house and doing some mental de-cluttering, will give me space to focus on what's important.

And I really appreciate that we've got til April 14 (that's the date this year, right? a Wednesday) to spend time getting current things in order. I like a nice, long lead-time.

Does anyone know the time on the 14th? Seems like that'll impact shopping possibilities.

Wombatclay--love the idea of making it fit into a drawer, DH and I have been talking about a move for a couple years now and I think the time may be drawing near. Other than that, I have no aesthetic sense and wouldn't mind putting up a collage in my bedroom.

Hmmmm... I hand drew the tree me. I had a picture up on flickr but it was 2 years ago... I'll see if I can find it again. If not, I think I know where the map is.

I'm curious about what Flower Essences you are using for letting go of failed friendships? I have also experienced several failed friendships this year and need help in letting go that last bit if you know what I mean...

I have a handful of Bach's flower essences that I am going to energy test to see if they are a good match. I don't have a full set. I will get back to you if I find something with a yes for me. I will also go over my Bach book.

Another option I have is to use Panserbjorne, a mdc mama, for a personalized mix. I've used her blends for myself and my boys and the blends totally, totally rock. this is a link to her work. They work like magic for me. She has an amazing talent and deep knowledge.

I've been really dragging my feet about doing any of this though and it has really gotten me thinking about what am I getting out of this pain? Do I not want to let go? I think I need to process through this also. I do believe I will eventually step away from this a strong, healthier person, but it is a process.
post #112 of 395
i also have the full set if you need any remedies..but im not sure shipping from canada would be any less than buying a whole new bottle..
im just getting into making flower remedies, and im going to a gem elixer course on monday. super excited!

I have been trying to let go of someone for a long, long time - we are talking years. So many times I have gotten close to letting go, and then it is like I get scared and cling even tighter. I recently realized that I am afraid of the great big void that the "letting go" will bring. And in my head I KNOW that that big empty space WILL be filled up with something better but I am having a hard time convincing my heart/soul/body that that is true. It is almost like I am afraid of who I will or will not be once I let go of this enormous, heavy weight of memories and broken heart that is filling me up. That I will no longer be me, or that the person I once was will no longer exist. It doesn't make sense but that is how the thought of letting go makes me feel.
I also think that once I do finally let go I will fell so angry at myself for not letting go sooner.
Anyway, lots of processing happening over here because I just have to move forward now.
And it is interesting because on April 14th I will be flying back "home" where this person is and I really NEED to have let go by then.

wow really powerful comments Plaid Leopard.

So much emotional energy is still being used for this. I think partially for me, especially with one of the relationships, I worry that if I let go, there will be no chance of going back. I still hope that we can make some amends, and go forward in a healthier way. This person has clearly said that she does not want to though, and I need to accept that, and enjoy the friendships I do have.

I can really see the practical application towards cleaning house both physically and emotionally before Aries new moon.

Almost done with all of my closets, but the basement is looming in front of me! I think I will wait until it gets warmer to tackle that.

I have been learning the lesson of letting go for years and years now. But it has been one of the very most important lessons of my life. When you let go of something that no longer provides fertile ground for your spirit, a part of you does die, that part of you no longer exists. It does make sense that letting go causes you to feel like you are no longer the person you once were. But by letting go you will have created new, open, albeit dark, space for your authentic self to grow. I think these lessons take a long time to learn. Back in the summer I was finally successful at breaking down lots of beliefs that no longer provided food for nourishing my unique spirit... after years and years and years of struggling with doing so. Remember to be kind to yourself, forgive yourself, and love yourself through all of your journeys.

I am so excited to see this thread!!!!

I did my first TM last year. Here it is. I have it on the wall above my desk. My desk is in an alcove created by the closet sticking into the room while the window is flush with the outside wall. One has to walk around my desk and stand or sit in order to see my TM. For me, I it's location because I can just look up at any time and see it and read it. I wanted it aesthetically pleasing, but moreso I wanted to express my creativity and this just flowed so well and easy at TM time. All I knew beforehand is I was going to use that corkboard and it needed to have the frame covered in some way (paint was the most likely).

2009 TM is amazing! Things are still flowing in and life is good! Things happened in unusual ways, that is for sure.

I am ill today and am spending the time in bed resting and on the laptop. After posting above, I decided to read every segment of my 2009 TM to lift my spirits (illnesses drag me down a bit) and out of curiosity to see exactly what has manifested already and what is currently manifesting and what *will* manifest before April.

WOWSERS!!!! I am so excited to share that nearly everything has already manifested or is in progress! This is amazing and so much FUN!!!

A few fun things:
~ [Abundance & Prosperity flowers] On the back of a picture I cut out of a magazine (gardening related), I wrote, "Salad comes from her garden." (I noted this in my photos or I wouldn't have remembered this at all. It is not visible.) We have been growing two lettuces and spinach in our backyard for a couple months now. DD picks the leaves for our dinner salads nearly every night!

~ On my travel flower, I used magazine pictures from travel brochures to Hawaii and wrote, "I am so happy and appreciative that [DH] and I celebrated our 11th anniversary together in beautiful, adventure-filled, relaxing Kaua'i." Our 11th wedding anniversary is June 18, 2010. Our DD is in year-round school and we wanted to go when she was out of school. I booked our flights last week and we are going in April!!!

Some more intimate examples:
~ On the stem of one of my Fame & Reputation flowers, I wrote, "I am so grateful people respect and admire me for the joyful, kind, creative person I am." I have struggled with this my whole life (recognition and self-worth issues) and have been actively working on these things for several years. Just last month, I was at a friend's house and she told me a story (in the past) about herself and some of our mutual friends and how they admired my parenting techniques. It is hard to convey the emotion wrapped up in this one five-minute discussion, but let's just say it made my day in a very life-altering way. I started noticing so many ways people DO admire and respect me for the person I am. Wow! Mind-blowing and awesome!

~ In the Family area (on green grass), I wrote, "We enjoy family-enriching experiences." First flower in relationship area is dedicated to friendships. The (green) stem to that flower is dedicated to my relationship with my dad (very intense and tumultuous all my life and I grew up with him, not my mom). He has lived 90 seconds away by foot for the past few years and that has been a very challenging relationship for me on so many levels. On that stem, I wrote, "My dad and I accept and respect each other as we are now." WOW! This is a reality after ALL these years!!!! (I'm 42.) Now, it came about in a rather unusual way and is rather fitting in a way. We had a major flood on May 1, 2009. Ankle-deep water, lots of structural damage, total claim $30K. After the professionals handled the first week or so, we got over the shock and started thinking about how we could handle this ourselves. We had a leak from upstairs to deal with suddenly, too. My dad was in AZ at this point. I called him and asked him to please come home early and help me. He did. (During this whole time, we had two floods, 3-4 water leaks, and 3 gas leaks!) I took charge of the whole project of reconstruction and had an entire crew of paid and volunteer workers. My dad and I worked together every single day on my house and the magic unfolded. I understand him better and he understands me better. There is so much less stress in our relationship now. Things that used to irritate me to no end, simply don't anymore. I doubt either of us changed all that much, but our way of relating to each other sure did.

There are other things, too. These are the highlights. Thanks for reading!

Subbing! This will be my third year TMing and from the beginning I have been able to see things manifesting that I put on my map. I'm going to move 2009's to a more prominent place for the few months so I can really work to manifest those things I'm still working on.

I was looking at my old map this morning and had to laugh. For some reason there was a tiny picture on it of a man sitting and reading at a round table with a parasol, in a backyard garden. I think I put it on there to represent a peaceful spot/relaxation etc. Well, our neighbors gave us their round wooden table with parasol when they moved away, and DH now spends a lot of time in the back yard reading/working/smoking by himself at this table. oops. Not exactly what I had in mind. Maybe this year I will put a picture of a family relaxing together (and not smoking).
