The official 2012 Treasure Map Thread - Page 6

post #101 of 190

Jumping in. I have not done a map in a couple of years. This year, I felt a very strong desire to do one. On the day of the New Moon, I woke up feeling fabulous and full of positive energy. I had been cleaning house for a few weeks (doing the Declutter 2012 items in 2012 on another thread) and have been feeling rather positive lately. I got my magazine that morning and that was it. By 2pm that day, I was in the hospital with a violent stomach bug that came on quickly and left my very dehydrated. I was better by that night ( thank you, Zofran), but I ended up having a complete nervous breakdown two days later - a huge emotional release. Part of that breakdown involved me losing a trio of friends who did not want to deal with my "drama." Within an hour, three of my best friends became my foes and have since been pulling tons of high school mean girls crap on me. With all of that happening in the span of a couple of days, I have shyed away from my map. I did cut out some images from my magazine, though I was not able to find much at all. I'm trying to process everything that has happened this past week and make sense of it. I almost feel that this whole sickness/breakdown/friend drama is some way of purging a lot of negative energy from my life. I'm just nervous about making my map because I don't know if I am in the right frame of mind. I've been totally thrown for a loop and there is a lot of confusion although I am trying to remain positive. Anyone have any insight? Do I even make sense? lol.gif

Mrs Mike big hugs.

 

I think all of this makes sense.  The huge purging of your house is part of the transition.  Never underestimate how changing ones' house by either painting moving, moving furniture, tidying in a deep way and of course de cluttering can change one's life.  I have been using Feng Shui for 17 years and I never stop being amazed by the shifts.    I had something similiar last fall, for some reason around near the fall equinox I repurposed a wall in my bedroom.  My husband and I bought new cabinets and drawers, turned the whole wall into a huge unit so that my clothes were not lying all over the place.   It was a financial commitment and that was part of the reason on the delay for so many years.

Within a month a friendship that I had for five years ended.  Quite dramatically.  Not by my hands but by their's and frankly, my life has never been better.   The friendship could be draining at times but I am loyal so I hung in there.    Anyway, once it ended it shifted a whole lot of other people's lives.  In a big way.    Anyway, my own feeling is that this lines up with the times we are now in.  We are all  heading for new ground and with that comes separations and people move on.   Your own life will be richer.  As for the other people just know they are moving on to their new grounds.  Wish them peace and move on.

 

I think you will feel like doing your map in the next few days.  And probably once Mercury goes direct 4/4 you will get another thrust of energy.

 

enjoy the new territory.

I hope to heck you are right, Tracy! I hope that is right for me, too. I want THIS to be the year of moving! Preferably by midsummer!

Very cool! When I finished making my map, a friend offered to paint a few rooms in our house. Now that everything is stripped from the rooms, I am able to incorporate the bagua into the living space of the house, too. I am brand new to Feng Shui (thanks to treasure mapping- Thankyou) I really dig the process. I love reasonating to my map every morning.

I'm just about done and feel that my board is just about perfect. I'm just filling in affirmations and I'm stumped as to where to put an affirmation in reguards to bike riding. It's something I do with friends (fame & rep) but it relates to physical health, it could relate to wisdom and knowledge because it does cover techinique, but I also reguard helpful people to do it. There isn't a place that feels right. I do have bike riding pics in fame and rep (there is an awesome camp I really want to do but it's pricey), also in realtionships, and helpful people.

 

Here are my affirmations. I'm working on the wording still.

"I rock!"

"I clear rock bluffs with finess, go across ridges and bridges without hesitation, and power uphill on my bike."

"Burms are my friends"

" I'm learning new skills and am perfecting my technique with each chance I get to ride my bike."

 

I was trying to put everything all pleasantly but that was not me and feeling alittle fake. It's what I did before. So now I'm trying to put emotion behind these affirmations. Although I'm still trying to find/think of one relating to building strong friendships new and old.

 

How's everyone elses map? I love seeing the pictures!

Thank you so much, Tracy, It makes a lot of sense. As for the friends - I have mentally sent them peace and will be moving right along. :-)

Oh dear Tracy, you seem to be right on.  I don't understand much about astrology and squaring of houses.  However, that spat with the in-laws seems to be growing, despite my wanting to let things settle and move on for my own self mental peace.  I am so resisting spending anymore time, and meeting with equal resistance.  I guess I am not doing something right, and being a non-confrontationist, really having a hard time accepting my own feelings of coming into my own, the responsibilities, the space, the "I told you so" .  The saddest part is that it doesn't have to be ugly or bitter, despite my making efforts, I am constantly feeling on the defense line yet trying not to sound/be victimized.  .....Not sure where this is going. We often have such 'situations' spark every couple of months esp. around the change of the moon, sometimes full or new, not sure..But I know it is related somewhere.  It is unsettling, but perhaps good or needed?

 

Mrs. Mike and Tracy, as far as purging of friends, it has happened with me to in February as I was starting to clean the entire house and purge all the unnecessary.  I lost a friendship, which was really waiting to happen.  Being a loyal friend too, I didn't have it in me to let it go for so long.  But it has happened.  She and I used to run a mother's group, and it might be that I will dissolve the group or perhaps revive.  Needless to say it will affect the group and its 100+ members possibly in a very small way.

 

I love this thread, and need it.  Thank you

I am so confused about what I want that I've decided to spend the time heading up to the 4th doing the purge I should have done before.  

This is the 8th one I've done & is by far the most challenging. Hope mercury going direct clears some things up.

Link it here? Please?

post #112 of 190

Wow. I still have not started my map. I've been printing photos here and there over the past week... but I haven't glued anything down. I haven't really felt the urge to make any of it permanent yet.

 

Today I worked on my application for midwifery college. I've just been spending a lot of quality time with DP and DD and just haven't been truly inspired to make a map this year.

 

 

 

 

Hmmmmmmmmmm

 

 

Tracy, I need some major feng shui tips... I've been feeling so stagnant and lazy lately!

post #113 of 190

On the Aries new moon, I wrote MANY affirmations and loosely planned out my treasure map in my head. Picked up a few new items and gathered my supplies. Then, life was busy with other activities and was followed by a stagnant period (rest perhaps?). Today, I finally got started on my map. Came up with a new plan, lol, and have been working nearly nonstop for HOURS! I'm loving it thus far.... YIPPEEEE!!!

post #114 of 190

I've never done a TM before. I've heard it every year for the nearly 6 years I've been on MDC, but never gave it much thought. 

 

The end of 2011, I had a very large awakening and changed a number of things in my life. I was in a whirlwind of change until March. The dust has almost settled on all the upheaval and now I'm ready to start building back up. 

 

So I made my treasure map with what I had. Construction Paper and crayons :) It's simple, but I think it's already helping so much. I taped it to my headboard on my side of the bed and my dreams last night revolved around the things I want most on my map this year. This morning I feel more aware and happier in my own way :)

post #115 of 190

I've taken some pictures of some of my vision journal (instead of a treasure map,this year). I'm afraid I am an awful photographer, but will post them anyway.

Do you think it is obvious what I want this year?Lol.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! SO fresh and inspiring. It's beautiful!!!

Oh Thankyou,Jazzybaby9. That was a lovely compliment.love.gif

post #118 of 190

I finished my treasure map last night (Sunday night) and posted pictures on my Flickr account. I had a great time creating it and I love it!!!

 

Although it is considered finished, I am still contemplating a few little details. I drew my elements (mostly freehand, unusual for me) and am considering printing one picture for each bagua and adhering them to the back of each section. Once I decide one way or the other on that, then I can determine if I want to adhere the map to a stiff board, or just lean the TM against it, which is how it is now. I have a beautiful metal easel to display my TM and it is on my vanity in our master bedroom. The vanity is in front of a very sunny window, so an easel is the best way to display it in that space and a light-blocking medium will protect my TM from fading prematurely... Oh, I matched up essential oils and the chakras. I want to dab a tiny bit of EO onto each chakra. I already misted the entire map with a handcrafted "concentration spa spritzer" (as in focus) that I made for an entirely different purpose but was handy to soften the watercolor pencils and crayons in a couple areas... lol
