The Official Treasure Map of 2010 - Page 2

post #21 of 558
I was just thinking that the energy of the new moon doesn't seem to feel any different than yesterday, but then realized that my mind is spinning with ideas (and I can't seem to stop posting here) so maybe it does

I know our treasure maps are supposed to be about us, not other people, but what if I have friends or family that need some things brought in?

I have a friend who is 8 months pregnant and in an emotionally abusive marriage. She's struggling with what to do, and right now is falling into the typical abuse pattern of accepting his apologies an thinking/hoping everything is going to be ok when he apologizes for what he does. Our other friend and I have been struggling with how best to support her. We don't want to tell her what to do we just want to make sure that the support and advice we are giving her is going to help her make the best decision for her and her kids, whatever that may be. Can I put an affirmation about that, like "I support my friends in making the best decisions for them and their kids?" ("S" if you're reading this, hope you don't mind my posting this).

I also would like to do something similar for my stepson who's 21 and has come to the realization that his 2yo son isn't his and the mother has been manipulating him to get him to pay for things and babysit. But, he's attached to the boy and wants to continue to be his dad even though I am certain that his ex will tell him he can't see his son anymore once she no longer needs him. It will be devastating and he already has some emotional issues, depression and a past suicide attempt.

Or, should I just have an affirmation that other people's problems are not mine to solve?

3rd year mapping on mdc and first year mapping with dd

She'll be painting her map... Still not sure where I want to grab magazines. We have supplies and solid plans and goals for this year, but wanting to take a new route this year... Definitely a transitional year in almost every aspect of my life.... Moving to oregon, starting midwifery college, wealth wealth wealth, single, determined, etc etc etc... I want this map to be intense and powerful, but also gentle and comforting.........

Daydreaming while dd naps.........

where can I get free magazines???

Jade's Mom, I know what you mean about it feeling like yesterday. I was just thinking that too, and how last year there seems to be a lot of powerful energy going on for lots of people. Tracy, can you give us some insight about the astrological alignments this time around. I am just curious because it really does feel so different than last year.

My map is in stages- I have started the following:
Me
House

I even woke up cheery and ready to work, so I can feel the energy working!
I felt this way this morning too! I actually bounded down the stairs

Yay for TM and first off to read the new moon article too

Supplies all purchased. Looking forward to getting down to it.

Tracy - when does Mercury go retrograde? Sunday or Monday?

I started looking through my magazines while DD2 napped. I think I bought too many - I'm feeling overwhelmed. I put them away when she got up from her nap so I won't be able to get back to it until they go to bed tonight. Any advice for first timers who are feeling overwhelmed? How many magazines do most of you use? I'm wondering if I should stop looking at them or go through all of them.

I'm overwhelmed, too. Would also love to hear some advice for first timers.

How about starting in areas of your life instead of starting with magazines. Meaning, say you to want manifest some things in the family area. Start somewhere within that. Like more time with your children. Find an image to depict that. I think you have just gotten yourselves wound up and now don't know how to begin. So take a chunk make that even smaller and I bet once you open the floodgates there will be no problem.

Just jumped on myself to say that I am so lovin the energy of this thread. Knowing there are so many people out there putting energy into this feels really fantastic. This thread of energy is actually pulling all of us together in a really magical way. We are all taking responsibility for our own lives and using our own power to have positive intention for ourselves. This is how it's supposed to be. Have fun everyone!

I agree with those who are saying it feels like a holiday -- one where we get to focus on ourselves and our dreams, how welcome!

However, having a busy day at work, dealing with a sick child...not able to do much but think in snatches right now. Going out after work for supplies, but have to wait till tomorrow to get to the thrift store if I feel I want mega magazines. Or even books; I'd love to find something with art images to cut up/inspire me.

I'm also thinking a chakra layout focuses well on personal growth, whereas a bagua layout is slightly more material. I'm going to wait until after I have images prepared, and see what layout seems to work better.
Thanks for the thoughts and the breakdown, saphire! I especially like the alignment of Fame iwth the Crown chakra. Makes a lot of sense.

My garden is going in my Root chakra area, of course, and also issues to do with anxieties about my children's safety and addressing strong fears in general, I think. Anything that has to be right with my world, or I won't be able to function well.

Something I wanted to add to your comments on the Brow chakra, I am thinking a lot about the word "perception", both sensory and extrasensory. Like, I am experiencing some eye issues, and I'd map about being able to see better physically there. And I want to be able to percieve information about my children and my dh's work etc. clearly, through my senses and intuition, and integrate it to bring me to clear understanding of these issues. (I'm wearing my necklace, Clay, if you're reading this, can you tell ?)

One thing I always agonize about is where to put stuff about certain kinds of relationships/friends/coworkers/community/non-immediate family. It came to me that I could just trust my own intuition about questions like this, especially if I am mapping with the chakra framework.

I enjoy feng shui, have learned a lot from TMing with the baguas, to the point that I now use many feng shui elements in my home, but I worry sometimes that I don't have the cultural background to fully grok the nuances of that system. But the chakra framework? Well it is my own body, ultimately, right? If the idea of working with chakras feels right, then there is a potential level of connect to that framework through the TMing process that just makes me

Thank you so much, Tracy, for putting this on the forefront of my brain! I had a TM brunch today with other mamas, with some cutting and chatting (and lots of eating). I'm really going to focus on this in the next few days... Happy Treasure Mapping, everyone!
post #38 of 558
Just had to pop in to say that this is my first time TMing and I'm really excited! My hubby and I are going to do our maps together this evening! Happy Treasure Mapping Day everyone! Arrrr! (I know it has nothing to do with TMing but speaking "pirate" has been making my giggle all day)
post #39 of 558

Arrr! back atcha Momma Moo Martin. DH loves all things pirate.

We went and got some fancy stickers and papers at A.C. Moore today.
It was interesting to see what my 7 year old was interested in.
