When I look at it, it looks more like a scrap book or even check list for all I've done this past year. There are still a few images that baffle me.

I love that you used EO with your cleaning.

very inspiring.

but if he does end up staying with you put the energy more on your response.  how you respond could say more about your year than whether he is there or not.

and for the record I have to do a big ol volunteer project at my son's school...I do NOT want a year of volunteering.  I will be watching my reactions carefully during the process, believe me. 

 

 

perfect, thank you!

And remember you don't have to have your house finished on new moon.  You may just get the goals set for it, or perhaps tackle one room.

Congratulations on all the good movement.  


Thank you! I was wondering about redecorating before or after the new moon, thanks for the clarification. Ds worked on his area a lot this past month, I am so proud of him.

Oh, that is SO cool. I'd love to meet them. Where/when is the midwest Herb Fest? I'm nowhere near there. There is a big herb fest here, but I don't have the money even as a local greensad.gif

I'm thinking you should just call him and say something has come up, and I'm sorry, but my place is no longer available. He has his folks' place, didn't you say? So at least he wouldn't be stranded. Plus, you don't have to say what came up. It's nobody's business but yours!

 

 

I can't believe I started to read this thread when it first got posted...then forgot to sub to it! duh.gif So, just got caught up. Glad there were only 6 pages!

 

So...yeah, me too on the multiple years for manifesting. I've had my house for sale for the last 3-1/2 years and it's been vehemently on all my maps and hasn't even had a bite. Though, the showings have trickled in more in the past month or three, than they have in the whole last 3 years. I've done everything I can, including lowering the price to a ridiculous level, considering that housing is going up. Existing housing has gone up 30-odd percent in my area in the last year, and this house? Nada gloomy.gif I have done everything that can be done. The few showings I have had recently, people didn't like the location. I can't do a thing about that. I wasn't thrilled with it either, but I went for structure over location, because I knew I would not be able to fix things, or hire people to fix things, and I'm a single mama. I paid $140K for it and I now have it listed at $129,900 and I am not going any lower. I need profit in order to move, and I need wiggle room for people to offer lower. Ack.

 

OTOH, many other things on my 2012 map have manifested. Though, the house is the biggie, the ONE THING that I really want. Really, really want. I want it sold.

I did a ton of spring cleaning and organizing this weekend, just in time for treasure mapping this week!  I am so excited! joy.gif

post #106 of 150
I'm joining. Better late than never. I've been decluttering, tho mostly out of self preservation. Lol. I still have a map from 2 years ago up. Last year didnt jive for me, so I didn't do one. First time in a long time I haven't. Now I feel like there are major changes coming down the pike and I need to do something this go round. So, here I am. Need to gain some clarity on where I'm headed.

Subbing! I've never done this before but am excited to try this year. I have to say I haven't been doing a ton of decluttering, but have been feeling a strong urge to do so, and have instead been doing lots of cleaning and organizing in preparation for decluttering. I also let go of a huge emotional burden this past week! Does that count? orngbiggrin.gif

post #108 of 150

i have been hard at work. i had about six laundry baskets filled with clutter. toys, unmatched socks, kids papers that came home from school, kids artwork, occasional books, scraps of wing dings and whatever. these were all "swept up" and accumulated as a major fail method of cleaning SEVERAL YEARS AGO. the laundry baskets had lingered on the edges of my otherwise fairly clean bedrooms. yuck! to wake up to the sight of them each morning.

 

i pushed through over the past several weeks and actually sorted out all of those bad boys. i did it by waking up super early before dawn, and dumping the contents of the baskets on the floor while my children slept, then sorting the contents into various piles. which i then put away. in their proper places.

 

i had a lot of internal resistance to accomplishing this clean up. i still am not sure why i resisted. but i had to literally force myself to do this project. i know from experience that this needed to be done. when you dig yourself a hole, the only way to get out of it is to do the work yourself. after i dumped the basket, i took the empty basket down to the basement. now i was forced to deal with the mess, and eliminate it.

 

i piled all of my junk in one room that was not a bedroom, and worked my way through it all. my rooms are all FINALLY clean. it only took six years, since we moved here and my daughter was born. LOL.

 

today my husband and i tackled the garage. first i took everything out. then we cleaned the garage floor with a leaf blower, got all the dirt out. then i reconfigured and reorganized everything that went back into the garage. threw out some stuff. packaged some to give away. the garage is now clean and neat. what a treat to come home to!!!!! no more tripping over stuff out there. clear pathways. organization that works for our situation. YAY!!!

 

---------------

 

i am getting excited for April 10, coming up this week!! i am relieved of the psychological burden of those laundry baskets of clutter. i am now resting a bit and wanting to clear my mind of the stress and cob sets, while i wait for the inspirations to come on Wednesday. 

 

it's like i'm ready to move onward! and at this point in time i cannot accurately predict what i want for the coming year. what my heart yearns for. what i want to spend my time doing. 

 

all i know is that i won't ever have to face the soul sucking burden of sorting a jumbled mess of stuff anymore.

 

ps: in case anyone has young children and is tempted to do a "quick pick up" using laundry baskets... i warn you: NOT WORTH IT. once the junk is "contained," it's like it's "OK" (but it's not), and since it's "contained," it's not a huge priority to put any of the stuff away. which of course, it is, if you want to free yourself.

Tracy (or any other astro knowledgable person), can u please talk more about Mars and how it will affect this coming year? What if we don't do a treasure map? Will we be in for utter chaos?? Any links, info would be gratefully received smile.gif
post #110 of 150

this is my 7th year and i've waited this long to come sniffing.  

 

this year has been sooo different. the process has been so natural and so - how shall i put it - smooth. 

 

i've naturally decluttered and am sooooo excited to do my TM this year. really really excited. i so want to do it. 

 

i've done it every year, but some years i didnt really want to do it and just did a cursory one. 

 

but the best one was last year. and i finally understood TM. its not so much about 'doing the TM' but holding that space, deeply desiring our wishes. its more about the emotional place it puts you in. 

 

i have never really followed the rules. last year i felt called to copy from this art coloring book. i spent hours, hours just doing it. i even went past the date of completion. in fact i didnt even complete it. and i hid it behind a couch and didnt even look at it. but the process of doing it was INTENSE. sooo intense. and the year following it has changed my life completely. not outward. it looks the same. but inward. HUGE change. and THAT affects my outside. 

 

this year i already got my supplies. i know its prudent to wait till the new moon time but i didnt have a choice. it is something i had to do as the opportunity came up. this year my map is going to be a spanking new journal. 

 

this year is HUGE. its going to be different. i dont know why. i dont know how. but its gonna be life changing.

So when does this Aries energy hit?  Could the wave be coming early?

 

I couldn't sleep last night for googling Vikings and Viking cultural reenactments of all things and just generally tingling with energy and desire to take control of my life.  Not usual for me.  Sleepy now.

People are blogging like crazy about this cycle. I just read this one

https://www.facebook.com/DharmaStarsAstrology?ref=ts&fref=ts and something on Planetary Apothecary

I resonate that the process is all about mindfulness and manifestation. It's been a great tool , it's helped me understand how I can balance and not swinging from extremes in polarity (good and bad for example). We all usually UN consciously create all the time. Mapping has been all about focusing on what I DO want. I also see my subconscious process mirroring right back at me when I look at my current map. This super cool process still working full force. More Awareness!

So excited!

I had last night ONE more thing come to fruition on my 2012 treasure map. To the exact image! I had found in a magazine of a teenage son with arms wrapped around his mom and giving her a kiss. My son had never held me in that way until last night. I was having a tough moment and he came over to console me.

My posterboard and new magazines await and my cleaning and to-do lists for the old year are almost done. I can't wait to do this again!joy.gif:joy

Aubergine, I woke up one morning and thought, Wow, it feels like treasure map new moon today!  I had been decluttering and cleaning, my house was spic and span, and Aries energy was streaming in.  It turned out that the Sun moved into Aries that very day!  There are a few other planets in Aries now, and actually, the moon is in Aries starting today, it is just not New Moon until Weds.  So, yeah, you are right, there is plenty of Aries energy in the air already!

 

I came here to ask a Q.  I just decided to smudge my house and I wonder if this will be better to do before or after New Moon?

This is so exciting!!! I am so looking forward to starting my TM, though it will be a juggle, I have extra work commitments on the 10th, and all week is a crazy busy one with kids doing loads of extra curricula stuff. But I will be finding time for the TM.

 

What I have loved, is the whole decluttering process. At first I felt resistant, unmotivated, but I am amazed at how much I have accomplished over the last couple of months. Yesterday was my last chance, and I completely cleared out the closet in my bedroom, and the walk-in-robe. I now feel I have "space" so that my mornings getting dressed for work won't be as difficult in all the mess.

 

It is great to feel this new start coming.

 

I can't say anything else has come from last year's TM. Perhaps it is still working its magic and I will conceive this week??winky.gif

 

If anyone has some last minute advice on how to help that manifest on this next map, I am open to suggestions.

Thanks for the link/info, Tricia. I'll definitely check them out. But mostly appreciate the reminder that it is about Awareness. I sometimes get wrapped up in the day to day stuff and forget the bigger picture!! Working on it....
