And I had my window open a while, and missed the most recent responses, but they were so helpful for a newbie! Thanks.

I was upstairs (in a doorway, trained well as a child ) and the whole house was swaying... A LOT! We had things fall over, but nothing was broken and all is well. It wasn't the strongest I've felt, but it may have been the longest. Definitely makes for an exciting Easter story...
Thanks for asking, Tracy.
last year was a horrible relationship that was VERY toxic relationship and i used my map to bring my self to a much better place.
this year i am jobless (been laid off a month) and working on getting back to school right after TM time so i am again going to try to manifest myself back to a good place.
i would do one mama
|However, I can see that the only way to survive and do what is best for my daughter is to stay with my husband of 14 years (even though I know in the bottom of my heart that he will not fulfill me in the ways I need to be fulfilled).|
|Then, it was all taken away from me. I had put lots of stuff on my original Dream Board about True Connection, Fireworks in a relationship, Chemistry, Romance, etc. That is exactly what I found with this other person... only... it wasn't to last...|
|Any advice on how to manifest 'specific' desires you have for a long-term relationship that you don't feel is possible in your current one but yet you feel as though you are in the right place practically... I don't regret experiencing what I did back in December (because it was so incredible)... but I don't want to put my desires on my TM regarding a relationship only to have them be short-lived again.|
|Everything seems to be taken away from me. It is as though I cannot put down roots physically, emotionally, mentally... Feels like I'm just pretending... to be happy. Like... it all looks good on paper... but inside my heart is a different story. But I am feeling selfish because what I am wanting has only to do with my own soul's happiness regarding romantic love... and that I should be focusing on my daughter and wait until I have more time and energy to devote on my own needs????|
|The feelings/love I felt with the certain relationship in December - being fulfilled in the ways I find important in a relationship - with true connection|
|2. Wanting a big circle of "made" family (since my own family is thousands of miles away and cannot afford to visit often) - of friends and people of my choosing - around me to sustain me. I recently found out we will have to stay living in a secluded area (instead of moving into a bigger city around more people) and this will hinder me in creating this feeling of "family" that I am completely craving. Afraid of ending up in the same situation that I was in in December (feeling alone and withdrawn and unfulfilled - which is not my desire even though it is my tendency (to withdraw) when I am stressed or sad. Seeing my real family is something important as well - not having finances to do this more often than once a year.|
|Ability to travel (something my DH does not have the desire to do besides not having the finances to do this).|
|Independence and ability to truly be myself and work on my own things while being married and being a mother.|
|Phrase everything in the positive (avoid the use of "no", "not", "never", etc.). State what you DO want and ignore what you don't want.|
I have a big question about this. My dad told me some stuff about this and how the subconscious doesnt recognize "not" or negatives and that you have to be careful with affirmations this way. Like, for example, if you said or thought "I am not fat," your subconscious just hears the I am and the fat, and so instead, you would say "i am thin." or whatever.
SO with this in mind, does anyone have suggestions for what kind of imagery or words to use in order to become a nonsmoker? I think if i put "stop smoking" then that emphasizes the smoking. And i wonder if that is why i still do smoke, as all these years i have been telling myself how much i need to stop smoking. I think maybe the subconscious isnt recognizing the "stop." The only thing i can think of is maybe a picture of clean, healthy lungs, but i would rather think of a good affirmation or some other way to represent this.....thanks for any suggestions or ideas anyone has regarding this....
I printed and read half of the thread, will read the last half today The one thing I wanted to ask, or just put out there is...I am not a very creative person I worry how my map will look, if it will be ok? I know that all the ideas will hit/come to me on the 14th, but I get caught up on the looks of the map itself. This is my first time trying to make a map and I want things to be right. Should I look at TM's or should I just wing it?
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!
