post #23 of 293

Here and accounted for! This is my third year and I am very excited again! I did tons of purging last year. So much so, that I honestly don't have really anything much to purge b/c I am a minimalist already. However, that leaves plenty of room to Spring clean, the house, body and mind. I'm looking forward to that. I am ready for some fresh energy. I also feel it completely makes a difference for my maps creation and all the intentions behind it.

 

2010's map is still kickin' it big time. I still look at it and give it energy daily.

So if I am 9 hours ahead of EST, it will be 7:32PM where I am

 

Is that how I would calculate the time to begin the treasure map?

 

Yes.  If you are in England you would add..5 hours. etc...

I am getting so pumped up for this years treasure map!  This last year has been amazing and I won't say it has been an easy year but it has been by far the biggest year of growth and change that I have ever had in my life.

I have tried to do one previously, but it never fully materialized because I started too late. This year I really want to do it. smile.gif

Subbing!!! :)

My current map is still doing great. Lots has changed! I am really feeling the decluttering urge (although I have in big letters, conquer your clutter on my map, so it could be a combination of both).

 

It is such a beautiful map too...but I will enjoy it right to the very last minute :)

 

Looking forward to working on a new one too and continuing to bring change and power into my life.

yay! 

 

i've done a map in the past (i think '08 and 09).  last year, i bought materials but COULD.NOT.MAKE.ONE and i really think it's because i just had no way to imagine what this year would be like, and maybe my map would have been limiting in some way?  my supplies were GQ (because jake gyllenhall was on the cover) and a box of colored pencils, which i feel are appropriate to the strange course my year has taken thus far.  love.gif  that being said, there's no way i'm going to miss out on making my tm this year.

I'm reposting this which I just posted on the 2010 thread.  I want to make sure it is here for 2011.---Tracy

 

 

 

I am really pushing people this year especially with the astrological changes going on to really clear themselve so that they can be really in a strong place of intuition.  As we all know within intuition we will find guidance.   The simple stuff, "Hmm I think I'll throw in the bandaids in my purse today" says the mom on her way to the beach with the kids.  Something she would normally not do.  That day Eli cuts his foot on a shell and she is grateful she packed the bandages.   We ALL have had those moments of intuition aka guidance.

 

But with treasure maps sometimes if we are not clear we will put things up because we have been talking about it for a long time. For example, Charlotte is really racing around in feb and march, tons on her plate. She knows she needs to clean her house but she is so busy she says, "I'll do it another day."  She suddenly realizes it is Treasure Map time, she does make time to make her map but she has not gotten her psyche there.   She may put up things that she thinks that she desires and maybe she'll even get them. But what is far more relevant is for her to clear out her psyche which will ALWAYS know more about what is coming around the corner and let that churn out some desires.   

Charlotte disconnected to psyche may put up photos of a new kitchen because that has been her 'desire' for a year or so.  However, Charlotte's psyche wants her to put up images of YOGA instructor.  Why?  Because Charlotte's pysche knows that there may be changes coming to Charlotte's job and her psyche wants her to have PlanB....which by the way is something Charlotte longs to do anyway. 

 

I really am hoping people will dig in deep so that they have desires that are in sync with were they are heading.  

 

hope that makes sense.

Just want to point out that "cleaning house" for some may not necessarily be physical (even though their physical house may need it as well).

Concentrate on what you can manage to clear out between now and then. No beating yourself up with shoulda, coulda, wouldas when TM time comes.

 

(I know that I need to hear this right now, so I'm saying it for anyone else who may need to as well. heartbeat.gif)

Subbing. Never done a treasure map before, always been curious :)

post #34 of 293

this will be my second year. please, goddess, let it be an easier year. greensad.gif help.gif gloomy.gif  banghead.gif  praying.gif

 

i'm a little confused about how the cleaning works. how does getting rid of "things" help? not that i don't agree, i just don't understand the why of it.

The clearing and cleaning helps because we are in the waning phase of the solar year.  Once we hit Capricorn we started to turn a corner on our maps. For some of us, we will find a burst come through and those seeds we planted back 10 months ago will come to completion.  Like I have said previously I have action on my map turn up in the final 30 days of the map year.

At the same time that those maps get their final boost we are also preparing for the new map.  

Clutter gets in the way of new energy.

Most of us have too much stuff in our life.  Too many things, too many lame people, too many broken down beliefs about ourselves, too many fears... clearing out the stuff and cleaning our houses will help clear the space physically and metaphorically.   

And of course this cleared space supports our intuition to speak to us and activate desires.

 

Also, I need to remind everyone, between now and April you MAY be completely convinced you know what you are going to put on your map, but do NOT be surprised that once that aries new moon starts and you get in front of your board and begin to construct your map and you pick items, words, images that you never thought you would go for....this is the power of the clearning and the difference of the energy when the new solar year begins.

I am totally new to the concept of Treasure Mapping but I came across this thread... and then looked up the 2010 thread... and now I am REALLY feeling a pull to give it a try this year. I hope it's OK if I join. :)

 

It's interesting, because I had wanted to ask IntuitiveJamie a question on her forum for awhile but I have so many big questions right now that I didn't know which to ask -- so I finally just picked one last week and asked her. The first part of her answer was a very straightforward response to my question but the real meat of her answer was not at all what I expected. She talked about how I need to declutter EVERYTHING -- my house, my mind, my soul -- and find out what my true values are. When I first read it, I honestly didn't quite understand how it related to my question, and I was a little bit annoyed (as is typical with me when I'm resisting something I really need to hear). But then I suddenly realized that she'd answered the question I didn't know how to ask -- the one that encompasses all the others. Right after that I stumbled across this thread about preparing for the treasure map, and the first post was all about clearing the space. So.... I'm feeling pretty strongly like this is where I need to be, and what I need to be doing.

 

Do any of you have tips for this preparatory phase that you'd be willing to share? I've already started on my house, but what about the internal clutter? That's where I'm really struggling right now, and I think it's what's causing my household clutter, too. What kinds of things can I do to begin clearing my mental/spiritual/emotional space? 

 

I'm excited to have come across this and I am so ready for the growth I think this process will bring!

A few years ago I was in a really brain cluttered time.  Lots of stuff (fears) issues going on.   So, based on direction from my spiritual advisor she asked that I begin writing daily affirmations.  I put together about six or seven of them and I wrote all of them about five times each every morning.  I chose the morning but you can do them at any time of the day.  

 

Perhaps I have concerns about my job.  I don't know if this is the right spot for me.    And it keeps going throgh my mind.  Then I will write down an affirmation/treatment that goes something like,   "I am happy and grateful that I am always in the right job at the right time."     I know this probably seems counterintuitive if I'm thinking this is the wrong job then why am I writing something like that?   Because what I find is that even if it is the wrong job but I keep writing that I am always in the right job  soon the right part of the situation will start to come apparent and from that I either shift the situation or I start to find a path out of it. A new opportunity will come.    Basically the affirmations start to settle the mind and from that a new way is found.

 

crappy relationship?    "I'm happy and grateful that all my realtionships are supportive and loving."  

lame money stuff  "I'm happy and grateful that my world is financially abundant and joyful."

ridiculous family stuff (you know lame mother, lame sister)   See above for crappy relationship.  Also, "I'm  happy and grateful that I defined boundaries in all my relationships."

 

You get the gist.

I did this for years and it always worked.   Not sometimes, always.   I would have cluttered up mind, not sure what way to go, brain felt like a tornado of thoughts swirling around.   I wrote the affirmations and I would start to feel calm.  And then stuff would come up that helped.   A person would offer something either physically or maybe it was just a comment.  I would hear somethinmg in that comment that would help me perhaps it gave me a lead on another place to go or get assistance.   Lots of coincidences tend to come up while writing affirmations and clearning the brain.  

 

By the way, this is interesting that this is coming up right now.  I had an issue come up yesterday that really stymied me and from it I got a wee bit depressed.  I am going to start writing affirmations today on this topic and perhaps throw in two more.  It is has been awhile and I can feel it is time. 

And of course, what a happy coincidence that I would talk about affirmations today.

post #38 of 293

 

Like most everyone else here, I too am really excited, and constantly thinking about what thoughts come to my mind when I first think about ...say - Relationships....Family, Friends, Marriage, Kids etc.
It is clear to me that Family is in the 4th area on the grid (FS)..
 
Any suggestions or experience about strengthening Friends and Social circle on the TM?
 
I am exercising my brain right now to think creatively..think outside the box...but this one..I am a little overwhelmed because we've as a family not done too well at all and have gotten REALLY shy in approaching speaking up making friends, keeping up with relations...
Of course I might change my mind about who and what I want to strengthen by the time April comes around, but still........

Subbing!

 

I had a lot of action on my 2010 map right away, then nooooooothing, and then in Dec it was almost like my map exploded.  LOL  Some good, some bad, but for the most part we wont "know" what is going on for another week or two... but it's been one heck of a roller coaster.

one of my favorite mental cleaning exercises is a really simple energy therapy sort of thing, called "clearing your cortices"  (that's just one, you could find others)....

 

i also find clearing physical spaces really helps to clear mental/etc spaces.... sorting thru what's in your home sort of has parallels with what's in your mind, that can be helpful.

 

i am a huge huge fan of floral essences. if that resonates with you, you might find one that helps you sort of clear the way for the TM time. there are two wonderful threads here on mdc about them (one here in spirituality), might be worth a pop-over and ask if anyone has favorite flowers to clear the mind for transformations...
