Prepping for the 2011 Treasure Map - Page 4

post #61 of 293

thank you!!!!

post #62 of 293

Just wanted to share that this is going to be my first doing the TM and so in preparation, I've been de-cluttering just like you all have (I  have other reasons as well for de-cluttering) I am loving every minute of decluttering..

 

and every night before going to bed, I am writing down my fears, values, questions, anything that crosses my mind that is a thought/question inorder to help me clear my mind....I think it helps because I've been feeling overwhelmed not only externally with cr@p around but internally like some of you...

I am really hoping that I can use this to come up with affirmations eventually esp. about things that I fear but have not been able to put into words before.....Sorry for rambling.....just felt like sharing....

This sounds like an awesome way to declutter the mind!  Thanks for sharing cus I think I might start this practice or keep a journal near me to be clear my mind at the end of a day or a really cruddy experience and not let it "rent" space in my mind (thanks for that phrase Maia!!!)

I don't know if it's the right way (or if there IS a right way), but I just focused on what I could do without stressing myself out, and areas that made me feel lighter and made day-to-day easier.  So some areas (many areas) were not touched at all, but some were nicely improved.  And I think just getting started on that helped me get more of that done throughout the year, and now, a year later, I look around and realize that instead of having small pockets of calm and order, there's a lot of calm and order and just pockets of disorder remaining.  Feels good, but it did take an entire year, lol.

Coincidence NOT :)

Oprah's newsletter in my inbox today 

http://www.oprah.com/spirit/How-Oprah-Learned-to-Declutter

Of course,  I haven't checked out all the related links ..and they look promising right now..

But its just awesome that the Universe is sending out the message (to me at least) clean your stuff, throw your junk!!

Alright, going to get busy reading looking for some more inspiration!

another prep idea came to me this weekend-- for those especially who find themselves having a harder than normal time during new moons, and or especially the aries new moon-- there are some homeopathic and cell salt remedies that are supposed to be good for people who have a hard time with new moons. i'm actually taking silica cell salts, which is one that gets mentioned for that. there are others, though, i know. i know i'll be curious to see if i have an easier time of the aries new moon because of it... anyhow, i just thought i'd share that, in case it really resonated with anyone else. 

post #67 of 293

I love cell salts, and the balancing your cortices tapping video. Also the Quantum k meditation  - has anyone linked that, yet?  Here it is - and thanks again to aweyn, who originally linked me to it.  You need to plan about 20 minutes, but I always find it very refreshing and cleansing.

 

My home and life are actually in much better shape overall with the decluttering habit I've gotten into in preparation for treasure mapping over the past few years.  I'm so grateful for that. I do have some corners and shelves to purge.

 

For me, I need to really focus on dealing with financial clutter, not so much physical.

 

I need to focus on getting my business taxes done *before* TM time - I never have managed that yet.  I also need to really add up my financial and personal debts and accept ownership and responsibility for them.  

 

I bought Christopher Penzcak's The Witches Coin last year and, although I loved it from the start, only just finished reading it, which tells you how blocked I feel about money issues!  I'd like to recommend it to anyone who is of a Pagan bent or anyone who just wants to read a great survey of symbolism and discussion of spiritual issues relating to money matters. There are some practical mundane suggestions too, if you read the whole thing. There is a ritual for spiritually taking control of one's debt that I think I am going to do. And, I think I have a better grasp on prosperity imagery that will come in handy when map-making time comes.

 

ETA Here is an affirmation I got from Penzcak's book:  "I am in the right place at the right time doing the right thing."

Subbing!

My family is in the habit of decluttering on a regular basis. We go through small areas every few weeks and by the time the year is over, we've hit the entire house. It is a lovely feeling. love.gif

 

I am still very much in my last treasure map. Allowing. Accepting. Wrapping up some details. Seeking out new ideas still.... Little things keep popping up for me. One interesting thing I noticed this past year is I moved my TM around a bit, but I never really LOOKED at it or studied it like the previous year. Yet, I feel it coming alive within me.

 

I cannot even wrap my head around a new TM yet.

No, shit.  That is why I am writing my own affirmations between now and Aries.

Subbing.

I missed the last 2 years but did the year before and had lots of amazing manifestations of things I'd written on my Treasure Map.

I'm looking forwards to doing it again in 2011.

 

What date/time would it be for Sydney Australia?

It would be in the middle of the night Sunday, the 3rd. Or VERY early morning of the 4th monday (about 1:30am? or 2am?) Either way, you'll start in your dreams! =) I'm on Guam, so same time zone as Sydney.

Tracy, can we start writing our affirmations for the TM 2011 now vs. at the new moon?  

Sorry, I am little confused about it but I have to ask.

I am under the impression that we will need to look at everything new and nothing old when we start the TM in April....like new magazines..nothing old...?  so if we use the affirmations we com e

with now at the time of the TM ..wouldn't that be old?  Or maybe its not hard and fast?

TIA

Subbing!  This will be year 5 for me.  I had a huge, disappointing, massive communication breakdown occur a few weeks before last year's TM.  It was pretty sudden and surprising and confusing and completely misdirected....and maybe I was kind of stuck in that a bit on the new moon.  

 

I still made my map, as the first pages in my brand new journal, thinking I would look at it more in a journal than on a poster board I stuck next to my bureau.  Then, I only wrote in my journal 3 or 4 times before life got crazy busy and complicated for awhile (new baby, health issues, etc.) and I ceased writing at all (for the first time in, oh, 25 years or so).

 

Looking back at my maps over the last few years, I think I've been pretty vague about some of my desires, especially surrounding money and career goals.  This year, I am feeling much more specific about things in general.  I've been really feeling the pull to declutter our physical space and there have been a few serendipitous moments recently that have gotten me thinking about how to be more mindful in actively choosing my thoughts, choosing happiness, etc.

 

So that's where I'm at right now.  Really looking forward to cleaning, clearing out space...I'm thinking that maybe I will even do a food cleanse before TM time.

post #78 of 293

right now, i am thinking about buying paints and a foam board once TM time starts. but, as recommended, i will leave my options open to make a decision after april 3 starts.

i've heard people talk about the various quadrants of their map -- is there meaning for where a picture is placed, such as in feng shui?

post #79 of 293

Subbing. This seems like fun--I've never done a treasure map before, just a psychic goal bowl (sort of like a treasure map only it didn't have pics, it was just a pie chart and I repeated the wants/needs in my head every night after doing my psychic mindset countdown). I didn't really keep up on it though. *shrug* A lot of the time my main manifestation success is related to a book I want that's out of print and just "happens" to show up at the used bookstore. LOL. Yay, I can't wait!! :)

Yes. Many people follow the feng shui baguas in several ways when making their treasure maps: placement, color, topic. If you google "feng shui baguas", you'll get a lot of info. Click on the "images" link for a variety of visual ways feng shui is expressed. Different theories or schools of thought express the baguas differently. The nine-square is common here.

 

For my first TM, I followed the baguas in color and topic. I created a scenic image, though, so the placement was not spot-on. The TM was amazing in action!

 

For my second TM, I went a different route. I focused on the chakras and added a few of the baguas that were important to me and not covered by the chakras. Again, it was a scenic image and placement was related to the scene I was creating more than the traditional placement. Another amazing TM in action! This one is still going...
