Prepping for the 2012 Treasure Map--- - Page 8

post #141 of 162

Unbelievably things are happening for me before I can even get the images glued down. I'm super excited for this one guys.. joy.gif

I spent the morning cleaning my little office and doing a "cleansing" ritual. Then I burned last year's map and set up my supplies for tomorrow. I'm so ready.joy.gif

I am teaching this afternoon... an outdoor art lesson with 5th graders! So much fun!

 

The rest of today I hope to get our house clean and ready for my DD's 11th birthday party and sleepover this weekend. We've got plans Thursday night through Friday night, too. However, I decided to NOT plan for treasure mapping time and to let it happen. Last night, I got an email from my dad asking if he could take his granddaughter shopping after school on Thursday (for her birthday). I suggested he pick her up from school and take her to lunch (early day) and then go shopping. HE AGREED!!! So, if we finish getting the house ready today, then I will have a chunk of uninterrupted, unexpected time on Thursday to work on my treasure map. :)

 

If not, I'll find time next week somewhere....

I have been cleaning like crazy for the last two weeks.  Every single cupboard, drawer, closet, nook and cranny in my house is 100% organized!  I cleaned things I have never cleaned before, like the top of doorjambs and windows. I cleaned blinds, scrubbed baseboards, vacuumed the pantry shelves, cleaned out and vacuumed my car and trunk, weeded my garden.  I thought TM time was my favorite time of the year, but I have felt so great about getting everything so sparkling clean, that the end of this map time has been my favorite time of this year!  All I need to do today is finish up some laundry and mop my floors, but after working nonstop for so many days, I am feeling so pooped today I just want to rest!  I am hoping for a second wind later on, because I definitely want my floors to feel nice and clean when I wake up for TM day tomorrow.  I was excited about planting seeds in my garden, which I do every year on this new moon, but it looks like a rainy yuck next few days weather wise here- I guess that just means more uninterrupted time for focusing on the map!

House is cleared out and cleaned and (/fresh air/breathing deep!) ...change is inevitable, I can FEEL it joy.gif

 

I'm on Spring Break, so I can spend tomorrow working on my map and spend it with my father who is in town and spend it with my love who is off on Thursdays and spend it burning sage and listening to beautiful music and creating intentions for the next year of my life!!!

 

 

 

 

WOO!goodvibes.gif

Oh, sage! I have some sage hydrosol I want to spritz about tonight or tomorrow before getting started. Cleansing, renewal, refreshing, releasing.... ahhhh...

 

Meanwhile, I am thrilled with the timing. TM time starts at 7:37 am here (PDT) and that is right as I am walking home from taking my daughter to school. How lovely to be outside in nature right at the beginning of the Aries new moon??? Soooo looking forward to it.... :D

This feels like Christmas Eve!!!energy.gif

It does feel like Christmas Eve, Valerie, good analogy!

 

My de-cluttering and organizing process has been long--several years now--and I can't say I'm done yet, but looking around, I am very pleased.  Instead of pockets of order in a sea of chaos, which was a decent description a few years ago, now I have pockets of chaos remaining in a house that is mostly orderly.  I love it!  And the yard, even it looks quite respectable, and after the horrible drought Texas had last summer, I am in awe. 

 

Anyway, I'm going to try to fit in a trip to drop stuff off at the thrift store tomorrow morning, the pile is by the front door now, and then see how the day unfolds.  I'm not feeling that low-level anxiety about getting started this year, anxiety in a bad way of wanting to get things right or do them right, not the happy-excitement type.  I've made a lot of progress this year emotionally and with relationships--I can see room for further work, definitely, but I feel like I'm at a much more grounded place, and that feels nice.

Wow, this is crazy.  The past few years this has taken place in April.  I have not been to this site for months, but felt compelled to come here today.  I have done the treasure map every year for the past 4 years with amazing results.  I am so excited to start tomorrow!!!!!!! :)

It not just the map. I think our thoughts are plugged in to the great source all the time. Here is an example~ I am  a cancer. The negative aspects in my chart describe my tendencies, when my consciousness is ego centered. What a gift it has been to incorporate this truth into my life. Anyway, in the last year I have come to feel the presence of the cosmic mother very deeply. Because the sun sign represents the souls path,  I have been praying that her divine wisdom be central in my life. Asking that she guide my actions. At one point even asking that I might be a vehicle for her holy essence. I got pregnant (even though we have been using two methods of birth control) one cycle later.

So yes, I will be meditating on my map symbols (and my projected intentions) very carefully.

When does the new thread go up? Right at new moon shift? Someone post a linky, please!

 

I have a meeting from 10:30 to 11:30 EDT, so will be going for supplies right after joy.gif

 

It's very overcast and a bit chill here at the moment, but I have all the windows open, incense going, I smudged and rang bells and am letting out all the old energy and letting in the new. Going to shower before my meeting and meditate on my old map for a minute before I thank it and destroy it and send it on its way.

Tracy said she will put it up just after new moon after she gets her son off to school (she is on the west coast).

 

AGH!  All this talk about destroying the old map!  I don't think I can do that!  Some stuff hasn't happened yet on that map and I was planning to take it down and hide it, thinking it will still be working for me behind the scenes.   Now I am wondering whether I should let it go and burn it, but I want to save it!

 

post #154 of 162

I'm super excited. I got a few last minute major decluttering things done yesterday. (One was a project I had been stalling for over 2 years!) I'm going to head over to my mom's house with DD today, and dig through all of her magazines.

Thanks, I do remember that, but didn't know what time that would be, my time (EDT).

 

I kept my maps for years, and didn't know what to do with them because they are huge, like 18X24. I ended up junking them...I'm not sure the old energy hanging around is a good thing. I have photos of them, though, on my computer.

 

See y'all in an hour or so! energy.gif

Riding the energy from this thread into creating my TM.  This year has been funny for leading up to TM time, as I have not physically decluttered my house much (well except for the desk) winky.gif, but I've been focused on letting go of unhealthy relationships and people and growing new & more positive relationships.  My phrase I've used with my DH over the past month is: we just need to let it go and not engage. 

 

I've got tomorrow off from work to start on my TM, but I'm already setting out some intentions by getting myself booked for an appointment (hair) to pay attention a bit to myself & a bit of pamper and to see if I can drop off my "saved from the curb" sewing machine for a bit of tinkering, adjustments and a new bobbin case orngbiggrin.gif  I see a fair bit of crafting & creating in my next year....
