post #81 of 162

OOh, i like the map as cards idea! very cool!

post #82 of 162

I had my cards read yesterday by someone else (not me lol.gif) and the last couple of cards were really happy ones! She seems to think this house will be sold and we will be moved my midsummer. Oh, gods, I hope so! fingersx.gif Midsummer is pushing it to the limit as far as I am wanting to go-- I wanted the house sold by May at the latest, so we could be moved before midsummer. But I'll take it. I want to be settled in, in our new place, way before school starts.

At least, I think school starts after Labor Day in MA, not like here in NC where it starts mid-August eyesroll.gif If that is so, it sure would buy me some time to get doctors and meds and school all settled.

 

Oh, I so want this to be true! I'd be even happier if someone would make an offer in the next week or two! That's my big one-- I want this house sold.

My husband, 3 year old daughter and I stay with my in laws (husband's parents).  They were in this house with my sis in law and Brother in law before I got married and moved in.  1 monnth after I moved in, my BIL and SIL moved out into their apartment (Which they had been planning and wanting for a long time). 

 

Now, I never really purified the place when I moved in.  I JUST moved in.  My relationship with SIL didn't start off very well anyway, and neither did it take off with BIL.

 

Anyway, long story short.  Is there anything I can do NOW to cleanse the rooms of their remaining energy. Over the last two years, I have done everything possible to transform the look of the two rooms we use (out of 3) to bring my touch. However, I say cleanse because, there still seems to be residual energy that hovers around, I don't know how to explain it.

 

I am told my SIL had a very bad last year with our in laws, and she and them had their share of relationship problems....etc

My MIL is a pack-rat, she loves holding on to EVERYTHING.  So it has been a struggle for me to replace her other son's stuff with this son's stuff (my husband)

 

The curtains in my daughter's room are the ones my SIL had put up, everything else has been replaced.

Anythign else I can do? Honestly, I just hope my relationship with them improves esp. for the sake of peace and my husband's feelings. 

 

Thanks :)

I've never made a treasure map before, but I think I should this year.  This weekend I decided to declutter the kids toys.  I threw out broken toys, organized the toy boxes by category and gathered up the baby/toddler toys to give away.  Then I found this thread this morning.  Good timing, eh?  smile.gif  There were certain toddler toys my 4yo wasn't ready to let go, and of course, I respect that.  It made me realize he is still so little and needs to be 'babied' some more. love.gif 

 

I've been in too much emotional turmoil and I need to get my head on straight.  I think a TM would help. 

 

Oh, and I got my period on Tuesday, the new moon.  Even my body wants a new start. 

post #85 of 162

Ill go back and read all this thread, but I wanted to sub!

 

I've spent a lot of decluttering in my life, but need to do the house. lol.  I've let go of a lot of things and activities in my schedule that are no longer serving me.  Including putting my kids in school and taking a break from homeschooling (they mostly wanted to anyway, this wasn't a big drama thing. something I really needed), letting go of my online yarn store (that was causing so much stress and it really shouldn't) among other personal things.

 

really need to work on the house more, though.  clothing, kids rooms, garage, closets.  all in surplus that needs clearing and revamping.

 

Excited about the map this year!  I haven't done one in a couple years now. <3

I realize I'm having a harder time this year getting excited for spring and aries new moon because we have not even had a winter.  

I think we have had two or maybe three days of rain since november.  my skin is so dry.  sigh.

 

anyway, I hope everyone else is getting excited. 

 

I hope everyone is letting stuff go, especially now that we are in the Pisces lunar cycle. 

Release, release, release!

Subbing.

 

Wow am I ever feeling the need to cleanse and declutter. Circumstance hasn't allowed me to do much of either but I've put the motion forward to give me the kick I need.

I figured it must be TM time with the urge to clean out/release.

 

This is will be my 4th TM, unless you could my first mental but not physical map and it had tons of movement. I had little movement this map and steady consistent movement where I did have some but nothing of awe. These is one picture I really really want to follow to my new map but I do know that I don't like old energy on new maps and my needs/desires will likely change by then.

The only neat manifestation was a picture I had of a calm body of water with a stone path going through the center. I put it in my travel/spiritual section. I thought it was purely spiritual... wrongo. I finally conquered a fear I have with these little log bridges that go over ponds but look more like a path on my bike. I've launched off of one early in the season last year. But I am so DONE with my 2011 map and have felt that way for months now. I'm not expecting anymore movement but will gladly take it.

 

Not sure what format my new map will take. I've done a poster board a few times and a circle the other time. I did commit myself to hosting a party that night. I'm debating on changing the date or using it to my advantage as I know I will clean for people and my house should be extra clean from the decluttering.

Wow... just...wow.

 

I was on here not too long ago saying that it was the most challenging year I've had in a long, long time - I was without hope for the remainder of this TM year.......

 

HOWEVER! The last few weeks have brought a TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF POSITIVE CHANGE!!! I cannot even begin to tell you how I went from heavy and weepy to feeling renewed, inspired, and suddenly the last few things on the map are being birthed into my life - this is FANTASTIC!

 

I'm still very much feeling the need to purge and de-clutter and deep clean every area of my life - SO READY FOR A NEW MAP!!! SO SO READY!

We've had a dry winter here, too - just had a big dump of snow at last. It has been wonderful. I hope you get rain, where you are, Tracy - not enough for dangerous flooding, but lots and lots, and soon!

Releasing is so important!  I let go of a really big emotional thing since December, something I've been carrying for years.  I think it is really gone and I feel so much healthier.  Last night, I had a nightmare that represented another one of my big half-suppressed fears  - of losing my dh for health reasons and having to raise our children alone. (This fear is related to some childhood experiences I had.)  I've been facing that one and working through it today with tapping and prayer.  I'm realizing that it is not likely to happen, that if it did it would be awful but that, like so many people going through hard times, we'd struggle and grow and we'd get through it and find a way to be ok.  And in the meantime, we do have my dh with us, and he is ok atm,  and I need to live the miracle and joy of that in this moment that we have together.

 

It is hard, but I am really getting excited about this year's map.  What if I can really lose all this sadness and fear I've been dragging around and be happy and live a fulfilled life without all this heaviness?  What *wouldn't* be possible?

 

I have been concerned about paying financial debts, but I am really coming to believe that there are some emotional debts that I need to clear up first.

Hi Aubergine68,

 

I am not a very frequent poster in general, but I can sense from what you have to write that you are really seeing how things can be without the heaviness and sadness, it sounds like you sound like a person who seems to have already crossed over and can see yourself happier.  I think that realization/visualization will a long way in making you feel better.  I am not sure if I am articulating it sufficiently, but you already sound relieved, I wish you more of that!

Great point about tapping, I need to do it more often now, sometimes I just don't feel ready to deal with stuff that comes up..But yes, it is time!

Good Luck :)

subbing to this thread too.

 

I have made treasure maps for many years now. I also have my mom and sister doing them with amazing results!! I mean incredible! 

 

Can't wait to buy some magazines - this is the only time I ever buy new magazines and I already have some idea's in my head about what I want on my map this year.

 

Thank you Tracy for continuing this process with us, and to everyone for the inspiration.

My TM last year was also on a poster board.  

 

So, I wildly put "potty training" on my TM for my daughter who is still not 2 as of now but I thought at least we would start thinking about it before the TM year was up.  It was a reminder.  SHE HAS PEED TWICE ON THE POTTY.  Totally a fluke in the morning.  I don't think she is truly *ready* BUT it's really making me feel like this last minute movement is really manifesting!  Plus, I had to get my car inspected.  My car is 13 years old and usually needs about $300 in work to pass or SOMETHING.  This year, it was just the price of the inspection, no extra work.  I had put a picture of her on my TM hoping that she would just stay strong for another year.  BAM!  Feeling so grateful!!

 

De-clutter is going well.  Nearly have my kitchen done.  Just have to tackle my fridge.  I wish I could hire someone!! haha.

One year I found sparkly stick-on jewels and that so added to my map that I keep doing it. Last year it was stick-on sparkly flowers!

 

Oh, and for the Pagans on the list-- I usually erect a circle around my entire property during TM time. Call the quarters and the whole nine yards. And leave the circle open until I'm done, then close it. This year I will be incorporating Catholic-type prayers into it, too.

I probably wouldn't do it around my whole apartment building, but that sounds like a great idea. I might try that this year, too.

I am ready to look ahead for some positives and would love to start collecting (but not opening/peeking).


I will probably start asking for people to pass along their old magazines in the next couple of weeks, but I will also probably buy a couple of magazines on the new moon, too. We already have stuff like glue sticks, paint, etc... I like getting magazines from others. While it means going through a lot I probably won't use, I also think I find things that I wouldn't otherwise use.

My last two maps have been based on chakras and were made of pieces of posterboard taped together. I have no idea about this map yet - not thinking about it much yet, either.  A friend did a map last year as a set of cards (like Tarot cards) and that really appealed to me at the time.

Oh, that sounds so neat! I'd love to see an example of someone's treasure map done like that...I think I'd use something like that more than a poster.

Hello! I made a treasure map in 2007 here on mothering and achieved every single thing on that map. It continues to amaze me. Today I pulled it out and went over it with my kiddos and felt the urge to make a new one very strongly. So I decided to check up on this thread to see if its getting to that time again. joy.gif  Decluttered in a MAJOR way the past few months, and its always on-going. I finally am decluttering myself from the local school district and by the end of this school year, I won't need to have anything to do with them. That was causing some hiccups in my life, and really throwing me off track as a parent. I feel liberated. Its time to make one, and this time all my children will be doing it as well. 

I can't wait to read more from everyone! Hello again!

 

post #98 of 162

So, we're coming down to the wire and I have to create a short list of things I need to get done before TM time begins.  I need to clear my schedule for the first three days of the new moon as much as possible, mostly.

 

I got my copy of Wayne Dyer's "Wishes Fulfilled" delivered to my  e-reader  last Friday and have started reading it in what spare moments I can snatch - I'd forgotten I'd ordered it -it is a gift I gave myself, I guess! I am not usually so New Agey, except at this time of year.  I't would be nice to be able to raise the vibration generally all year round, actually.  So far, "Wishes Fulfilled"  is really inspiring reading about changing one's thoughts and getting ready to manifest the life one wants, perfect to get me in the frame of mind for TM time.  The only problem is that the opening chapter just inspires me to go (re) read the writings of St. Francis of Assisi and Lao Tzu, and I don't really have time for much of that at the moment.  I could put it on my map, I suppose.

I appreciate the good wishes, speedmum - the same to you blowkiss.gif It is a little miracle already that those particular loops of negative emotions and fear seem to be gone.  I had another dream about letting go of those hot messes last night and was very happy to remember it this morning. It's a good place to be in, and I appreciate it.

 but you already sound relieved, I wish you more of that!

Great point about tapping, I need to do it more often now, sometimes I just don't feel ready to deal with stuff that comes up..But yes, it is time!

Good Luck :)
