The Official Treasure Map of 2011--It is here! - Page 3

post #41 of 207

how exciting to finally make this! the children watched me in fascination and want to make their own. i've made mine, this time it made sense to me to do three rows, i'm not sure why, a small, detailed row of images along the base, bigger along the middle, and a couple of large images along the top - landscapes really. i may edit a little bit over the next few days, i'd like to have some kind of images around my work and my relationships. in fact i began by writing down how i picture life now, and when i made my images i named each layer with an affirmation - not exactly the same ones, though! funny thing. still, it's much more organised than it was and i love to look at it. i'll revisit it later on today. 

 

happy mapping!

This is just how I am feeling.  I need to get more magazines too.  I bought 10 magazines yesterday and not much jumped out at me.

It took a lot of time to gather all the things I wanted for my TMap... I spent from 10:35am till 5pm going from one store to another! wild.gif

I started cutting last night... Went to bed around 11pm without being done with the cutting...

 

I feel slow...redface.gif

 

Off to find more words and pictures!

I'm finding it useful to google affirmations for prosperity and health to give me some fresh ideas for writing those.  There is a lot out there.

When I did baguas, I used to put stuff to do with dh's health and safety in the relationship quadrant. "I am grateful that/for....."   I also put images of us exercising together in the central health bagua and of my whole family eating more healthily in the home and family quadrant and of my family in general traveling safely by  car in the Travel area.  Now, with chakras, most of that would go in the root chakra area, some in the heart chakra area.

Yay!  Home from a weekend away and ready to map!

post #46 of 207

We had a TM party yesterday with some friends. DH and I spent the morning buying magazines...I think we got 7 or so and bristol board, etc. I made mine using a chakra theme like I did last year. It fits perfectly on the side of my bookshelf where I see it everyday. I stayed up late to glue it. DH pulled out some images, but since he made dinner, his isn't all done but he said he is doing it tomorrow night. 

 

DD was too tired but I thought I would see if she felt like making one, probably this afternoon or tomorrow when we should be home.

 

Happy mapping!

Hello everyone!  This will be my first attempt at TMing, and Im super excited to get started!  I have been feeling a lot of creative energy the past week, and havent found a good outlet, but this will help me focus and start.  I love all the ideas for how to make/organize the TM!  I think mine will be on foam board, with pictures and words, and possibly some stickers.  Not sure of the organization yet, will just situate it however feels right.  I will be lighting my personal candle for this!  (Its white, in a cute little tin, and smells like mint, which makes me calm and focused).

I seem to have a hard time moving in on this.

 

I still love last year's map and there is only two corners I would redo, the other 7 still speak to me. Any insight?

 

Would putting last year's map away help? It's hanging where I see it everyday.

post #49 of 207

Interesting.  I think I might make a digital treasure map because I have seen all sorts of cool photos of things I want.  What a great idea to get done during my spring break.

All of the above! I don't feel the swirling energy everybody else seems to feel. I feel sluggish-- I know what I want, but it's all basically the same as last year. And I still love last year's map, BUT, there are things on there that did not manifest at all and those are the things I really want (house selling, moving). OTOH, the budget area really has come together, more or less, for the first time ever thumb.gif

 

I think the two things I reallyreally want are selling the house and family harmony. DS has had some HUGE behavior issues lately and I want those to resolve. He has "honest" and "more quiet" (or some such) on his map, so maybe with both our maps it will be a double whammy?

post #52 of 207

I think I am going to TM something like this for those dh worries: "I am so excited and proud of dh's achievements in x area. It feels so good to be able to release my worry about these issues."

post #53 of 207

I'm in.  I didn't get a chance to check in yesterday because it was DH's birthday and we were celebrating and doing TM stuff. :)  

 

I got my magazines, and am surprised at what kind of images I am finding appealing this year. I will be interested to see where it goes. It is both more diffuse and more specific than I expected.

post #54 of 207

Exciting!  Thanks!~

post #56 of 207

Thus far, it has been a manic Monday here! energy.gif

 

One of our cars stopped working yesterday, so that moved into top priority for the day -- bumping my TM time down a few notches. DD was supposed to go to Gpa's for the morning and had to go earlier than planned. Two friends and I have been trying to coordinate going to a Girl Scout event (with our girls) that requires all of us registering at the same time. All that sounds way easier than it actually was. dizzy.gif

 

So, now, I have time to myself and no car to go get anything. Time to get creative...

 

DH & I both were so tired last night we actually went to bed at 9:30 pm, which is simply unheard of for us. (Maybe we didn't need whatever some of you were experiencing??? winky.gif)  I woke from a deep, deep sleep and it took me forever to actually wake up. I'm still yawning and it is 11:30 am!

 

I brainstormed TM ideas yesterday -- jotting ideas down with an open mind -- and nothing is really standing out for me. I recall having an idea or two in the shower this morning, but I am not recalling the details. I feel soooo unfocused! So much swirling, undirected energy flowing all around and through me. Feels like utter chaos. From my reading and studies, this is the perfect time to make BIG changes! Jump in with two feet...yada, yada, yada... I just feel like I need SOME stable ground as a launching pad, ya know? Hmmmm...I'm going to try tuning in while sitting in our master bedroom. That is the most calming, grounding place in our home. A big glass of water and having my collection of flower essences at hand sounds intriguing, as well.

Subbing. I am so excited. I spent a ton of $ on magazines yesterday. Damn, they are expensive. I took DS to an activity all day yesterday, and I was so excited to get mapping I couldn't wait to get home. I spent the evening cutting out images, but felt like I needed some more inspriation, so I got more magazines, and skipped work this morning to work on it. I still don't feel like I have enough pictures or words - especially for certain areas - relationships (with mom and DH), my job, etc. Other stuff, I feel like I have really well covered - children, family, outdoors-ey stuff, etc. I am excited to work on it again tonight.

Thank you. I'm thinking of going with a Bagua format this year so that definately helps with placement. Too bad I can't use the affrimation "DH's only health problem is my boot in his bum which I am removing as he gains paid emplyment" I'll have to find a way to rework it. :P I am including healthy eatting but that is mostly for myself. DH is one of those insanely active people and has to eat healthy to even do his activites. Just saying he is healed is not enough because the medical doctors say he is (which I am grateful for) but he is not to the standards he expects or needs to be at for the type of quality of life we want as a family. I'll have to spend some time googling for more ideas on affrimations. Thanks for that idea too.

 

I'm working today so during the slow periods I'm going to try and think of affrimations. I'm not finding many images that speak to me so I'm thinking this years map may end up being mostly text.

Slow to mapping this year. I hope to have time on the 7th, the kids will be at their friends. I haven't even purchased anything yet. Dear me, better get going. :)

 

I hope to give some thought to this tonight.

post #60 of 207

I did it all today (ran out last night and grabbed some magazines)... but this is my first TM, so now I'm nervous that I rushed it or that I wasn't specific enough or that I was too specific or... I dunno.  That I did it wrong.  LOL 

 

Oh, and I did it according to baguas, but I had found descriptions on some website, and they differed from the ones on here, so mine's slightly different... I dunno. 

 

GAH!  (nervous worried mess... so silly)
