subbing and psyched!! biggrinbounce.gif

post #82 of 293

So I put all my cleaning and financial paperwork todo list up on our family board in the kitchen, and my dh said he'll take the kids out on the next few Saturdays and give me the day to catch up on taxes and business/money paperwork.  I'm going to give up my extreme Saturday morning sleep-in habit to gain a few more hours for the decluttering/paperwork effort.  I've been trying to get to bed at decent hours this week so I'm not so tired I feel I need to sleep in to catch up.

 

So bring on Saturn's Day - I'm pumped and ready to do the work that needs doing!!

Rock on, Aubergine!!

 

So, me, there is a lady at my bank who is helping me to budget. Hardcore helping me. She's meeting me every week. For free! Here's what she's going to have me do: she's setting up a NEW checking account just for "spending things" like gas and groceries. The other account, my long-time checking account, is going to remain the main account but only have auto-drafts, only for bills. How cool is that? So flippin' brilliant! And I'll maybe be able to pay down debt and maybe be able to save and maybe even be able to reinstate my son's allowance orngbiggrin.gif I'm so happy and so excited. Budgeting, or saving money, or being financially solvent, has been on my TM for years. For years, it's been getting slowly better, but this year, it's kicking butt.

 

Yay for your DH! That's so cool of him.

 

So, I'm decluttering my bank account, finally!!!

 

And as for sleep-- Aubergine, you know that I have a long distance relationship. AND my man gets up at 4am to be at work by 5 or 6. And he calls me every day at that hour. I don't normally get up till 7 to get ds ready for school. BUT. I have decided to be in bed by no later than 8:30, because I get broken sleep. I have come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter when I get my sleep, as long as I get all of it. So yay you!

 

You know what, y'all-- because of this budget thing, I feel like my TM's rockin'. I have been doing the affirmations that Tracy suggested to me, and I've been doing the tapping that aweyn suggested (YES, aweyn, EVERY DAY!!) and I feel really positive. I've been ready to let go of this house for some time...and working on the attachment to the town we live in. I want to do something new. I trust the Universe. It's never let me down before love.gif

i have been thinking about that cortice cleaning one. i am going to start doing that! and tapping more regularly as well. i have only been doing the finger tip  one when i get really upset. iam surprised i remember to do that even. but it helps. it has been on my mind more recently. prob a sign to do it more :)

post #85 of 293

Yes... feeling it... this will be my 5th year? Either way... always works wonders. This year is going to be intense.

Yeah, I reluctantly admit it, but it feels good. Not in any way I can describe or what for, but it does. I'm trying to remember (memorize?) it so I don't have to use the video, but I haven't gotten there yet. She's awfully cute, but kind of lopsidedly weird looking, too. Great smile, though. Easy to want to follow her smile.gif

Right? I think you're right on. Yikes. I'm getting the feeling it's going to be "Hang on, we're in for quite a ride".

 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

 

The affirmations you do between now and Aries New Moon are to help clear your mind. 

These are affirmations that address your fears.   So, for example, let's say you have money fears.  Everyday between now and then you write,
"I'm happy and grateful that I have more than enough money to cover all my expenses." 

Even if your reality says something different than that.. you start writing it down.  Several times every day.

Why?  Because if your brain is hyper focused and full of fear over money when New Moon your desires could come from fear( whether you knw it or not).  

Instead if you can calm your brain down you your intuition will talk to you on New Moon and that will drive your Desires.   And sure on new moon you may put things on your map that are about abundance and money and you might even put down a money affirmation. But it will come from your intuition and not your fear.

 

and yes, new magazines, new images, new supplies are great for  your new map.  although some people need to use old, borrowed magazines which is fine. Just don't read them or open them until new moon.  They will be fresh to you which is ideal since it is a fresh new moon and new year.

Wow, that makes so muchhhh more sense and I am glad I asked.  Thanks for explaining Tracy!

I've been writing down my fears, because I was not able to put them into words before.  Now that I am more aware of some of my fears I didn't know I have, I can start writing affirmations to chill the mind.  Ok, wonderful.  Going to get busier now =)

Yay, that's awesome! :) I am going to do this the first time, and to be super honest, all of this is just start to make so much sense logically !  I love it!

 

And for you sleeping at 8:30pm, isn't that like the ideal time to hit the bed?  I think one of the age old sciences of Ayurveda (?) say that one should be in bed as the sun goes down, so between 6 and 10pm is the best time for your body!  I used to do that before becoming a mother, maybe thats something I'll work on tackling soon.

So good for you!!

It's funny that I chanced upon this prepping for TM thread. I've never made a TM before, but my new year's resolution was to seriously declutter our house. It;s quite small, but has way too much stuff in it. Adding a mindfulness, or spiritual component to my task is making it that much more meaningful. I'm not just clearing out our space for my family, I'm also doing it to clear myself to be open to receive.

 

I have cleaned out my closet (got rid of old journals, which was very significant for me), the main family/storage closet, our dining area, and I finally, finally updated the kids play area in the basement, making it more age appropriate for them. I feel so good about that, their rooms are really small, so this is a space they can hang out in with their friends. I'd say I've removed around 11 garbage bags full of stuff from our house already, and want to keep up the momentum!

Thank you for that explanation, it exactly addresses what I came here to ask. 

 

Anyone got suggestions as to exactly what affirmation may help in my situation?  DH doesn't think we're going to move between now and Aries new moon, and it's his finding a new job in CO that would drive a move.  We DO want to move away from this city, so I feel:

-frustrated that it's not happening now

-concerned that we're going to be here for a long time (great people, bad climate for DH, not a great climate for me)

-uncertain about where we should try to move (aim for Colorado, consider other locations as either temporary or permanent?)

 

Too much confusion and fear, and disappointment that we don't seem to be on our way now. 

 

Thoughts, anyone?

Just to make sure I understand...can I write down ideas for my 2011 TM? I was thinking about some specific places I wanted to travel this year...can I make myself notes about it? Sleep deprived mommy brain means that I tend to write everything down when I think it or else it goes off into the universe...redface.gif

Subbing.  This is my second year for TM.  I'm excited!

Exactly what you said. For me, too.

 

Our thing isn't <great people bad climate> but <great people, cool town, VERY bad housing market, might have to lose a ton of money, but need the money from sale of house in order to move>.

 

And also -uncertain about where we should try to move <there are a few locations that look good, but I've never been to any of them, so divine guidance would really be a good thing. I'm sure there are going to be several moves in our future while we find The Right Place.>

Mama-- that's not exclusive to sleep deprived mommy brain lol.gif I am writing stuff down as I think of them. When TM time comes, it all may change, but at least it's all springboard for ideas.

 

aweyn-- today is the end of the week for tapping to clear cortices. I have done it every day, 2x a day, except once, when I forgot the evening one till I was already in bed, and WAY too tired to get up and do it. But I have faithfully followed directions. AND I found scleranthus today for <gasp> nearly $10 for a teeny little bottle.

 

So, what's my next homework? And if FEs are so effective, I could use a different one, but I need help finding which one. Thanks, luv stillheart.gif

Hi:

 

Can I join you? I just followed this thread from the main page, because I keep seeing it come up and I had no idea what it was about, but it was obviously so active because it stays on the main page. I love this idea and am really excited about it.

 

Off to look at the old threads to read more about it. I have never heard of a TM before.

post #98 of 293

tanya, hugs, hon, and glad we made you laugh! are you wanting to prep for TM 11, or still get *something* from 10? or, feeling that these thoughts are going to block your TM 11 and so, want to clear them, so to speak? would you be happy with doing affirmations about finding the solutions in 11... and then focusing on that for your map? or are you needing..... something more? FEs? cell salts? tapping? (ok, just had to toss those out, lol)

 

maia, i fb'ed you... so we dont flood this thread.... ;-)

Let's see if this response works, I think they may still be doing some modifications to the software....

At this point, I don't have confidence that a move is going to happen (or even be kick-started, ie a job interview/offer for DH) before April, but since it's more out of my sphere of influence--it's DH getting a job offer--I think I can just let this astrological year play out as it will, but I want to be in a good mindset for 2011, and I'm not sure I'm there.

I guess I'd be happy if I could find some clarity for 2011 TM, yeah. I've got cell salts, haven't specifically played with them searching for clarity, love them for more tangible health issues, they rock. I have a short list of FEs that I've actually only used for the kids or DH, never for myself--I'm not well versed in them, just a rank beginner. I guess I should play the tapping video now, eh?

In terms of affirmations, I don't even know what to write--too much confusion and negative emotions (which is funny, cause in many other ways, I'm in a really good mental/emotional place, best ever probably).

eta: re-read your post... I'm not sure what I could/should be doing to brush aside the cobwebs of confusion, but I think I need to put some specific effort into it, so that I'm in a clear-minded, good place come Aries new moon.
post #100 of 293
ok. that makes sense. yes, try the tapping! the cortices one rocks for clearing mental cobwebs, ime/imo. also, if chakras resonate with you, this chakra tapping is one of my faves for bringing a sense of groundedness when i feel really uprooted/uncomfortable with where i am (and i lived in that state for almost 5 years, so i know it works, lol!)

since you have them, i'd also try tossing some FEs at it, and maybe some cell salts (kali phos springs to mind). which FEs do you have?

affirmations resonate less with me, but someone else might have some ideas for some...
