This was my first TM and the experience was AMAZING!!!! Since Ostara I have felt ungrounded and like someone hit me over the head with a hammer and I splintered in a million pieces. It was culminating coming into the Aries New Moon. Once the new moon hit I felt like time returned to normal speed and I became grounded and clear again. I put my Pandora radio on the Indian Classical station and the kidlets and I cut and pasted. They had fun with just making collages (only 4 and 5) and I had my treasure map mostly done by early afternoon. My mind was clear and the energy just flowed and I just did it. Little thought went into it although I was surprised what my hands reached for. I tried to make an affirmation book last December for the new year but never could pick it up. I never used those lovely affirmations. But I was drawn to it for my TM and added it.
I am so happy how it turned out. I had a very cluttered area which DH cleared for me to display the TM in our bedroom. He declared it the "mama shrine area." Is it crazy to just like to stand and stare at your TM? It carries crazy energy with it and makes me joyful just looking at it.
Great support from dh!
I think many of us were feeling like that, it was a very trying time. It sounds like you are on the right path. :)
I started my map last night, and I am feeling good about it. I decided to use pictures from the web, which I picked out and pasted into word. I then cut and pasted them onto pages. I am doing another notebook this year, since it is portable, and tidy. I put blank sheets in the back, so I can jot notes, remind myself of my goals and keep organized. I will have many days of soccer practice in my future, so I thought something that went with me made sense.
I even added sequins for some extra pizazz! I should finish it tonight or tomorrow afternoon.
