The official 2013 Treasure Map thread - Page 5

post #81 of 118

I'm done :D  I was really having trouble getting into doing a paper map... so I tried Pinterest... but didnt feel the excitement I'm used to with TM'ing.  But I happened to score a free ticket to a workshop at the local University being put on by a lady who runs an organization aiming to empower women to share their stories & weave new ones... and the activity was pretty much treasure mapping, although she does it a tiny bit different, and it was GREAT!  I got to meet a few wonderful ladies, whom I've now friended on FB... and I'm getting together for coffee with one of them next week! ( my last years map had finding friends as a major area :)   We made lists, cut pictures, shared stories and had a wonderful time!!  My map is not artsy like I did last year, but it feels powerful and exciting joy.gif

Modmom - I'm not done either.  I understand that we have until the Full Moon - 5-6 more days - to finish.  

I feel that the jottings and keywords I've got already *are* my map. I will create a larger, more precise and attractive version, but the intentions are already in play.

I think I am done with my treasure map..... Might go and add something to it like details.... Right now I have 'the wait is finally over' and have a baby picture.....but didn't mention anything about pregnancy...so might add 'happy safe easy pregnancy' or something to that effect.....

I noticed that the process of making the treasure map has a life of its own.. At first I collected a.lot of pictures and tried to place them all.....then kept taking one after another thinking what's more important .... Does this picture or word really convey what i want in my life...........And then it all came together very nicely.... Just what I want and nothing more...

DD 6 yr old did her treasure map as well .... She was done on day one, got her priorities straight!! Food, fun, flowers and animals...

Finaly put it together.  I have never had this much trouble keeping momentum but I am happy with it.

this was me this time also.  I'm not sure why the inertia, never finished this late, but I'm feeling pretty good about it now.

I have one last picture of something I really want but can't afford right now. It doesn't fit nicely in anything but I could put it in wealth and abundance. Should I do that or my other thoughts is just to slap it on the tin I set aside for saving for my new toy. It's not something I NEED but want.
I had thought I was done up until I went back to my magazines to read the articles that weren't cut apart.

I had one last thing I couldn't fit on my map, I just stuck it on the wall next to my map...and it has happened already! I am shocked at how much of my map is happening already. Now it's just a reminder to keep it going all year.

Really interesting...when making my map I was really drawn to pregnancy and birth photos, I thought maybe I would like to start Doula'ing again. It turns out I am pregnant! I found out a few days after I made my map.

We also just bought a new (to us) car that was exactly what we were looking for and was half of our budget.

I stopped mapping on the quarter moon. I knew I WASN'T FINISHED. Now I am done. It took my subconscious until yesterday night to prompt me with the missing link. A big space in my bagua mysteriously left just empty enough to place it, too. I love this process!

I finished mine today just before Full Moon.

I took the ENTIRE waxing moon to get my images.  Snipping here and there for 14 days.   I knew it was going to be a long haul for me not just because I had a crazy schedule but more because tides were churning in me that needed all 14 days to process.

 

Also, we put an offer on a house.  We have been casually looking for five years.    read that twice.  casually looking for five  years.

On Friday I saw a listing and although the square feet is small like what we currently live in, it has a 2nd bathroom.   Bingo.

 

our final offer goes in today.   It has been a mindboggling 36 hours.

 

I knew this Viking Moon map meant business......

my god, I just realized I have over 12, 000 postings on MDC.

 

crazy. 

post #95 of 118

Wow, so much happening. Owlhowl, so exciting about your pregnancy. Congratulations!

 

Tracy, how did it go with the house? Did you have that on your map?

 

My map is all done, but I was surprised that I really didn't find too many things (materialistic) that I want. And also, my map is very similar to the ones I have made in the past. The one material thing I'd love is a new stove. Mine is broken, but still working, but I just don't have the spare cash for a new one. Most of the other stuff is about lifestyle,and I have a large picture of a pregnant belly. I still want that more than anything else.

 Not a great photo, but here it is (It is in a scrapbook, over two pages)

Did I even tell you guys? I changed my focus about selling my house just the way y'all told me to, and FOUR DAYS LATER I got an offer! Low, and I negotiated back and forth and it's still low, but I took an offer and we're in due diligence right now! May 10th is when that ends but we are officially under contract, I think joy.gif Closing is May 30th, and I am renting back my own house for two weeks after that, but we'll be MA residents by Midsummer!
Next week I go visit my true love for the last time before we live there, and I'll be looking for a school for ds and an apartment for us while I'm there

I can hardly believe it. We've had a long distance for three and a half years. We're so ready to be together forever! luxlove.gif

Love this update.  Seriously, I am happy you got an offer, it was a long time you have waited. But so glad it happened on Aries lunar cycle.   hugs

thank you for asking GumB,

We are waiting a response.   if we get it---great.  If not we'll be fine.  Our offer was the amount that would make us feel good if we lost it. 

 

I had lots of images pulled but ended up with only a few on my map.  I had more sentences and life style more than things.  In fact one thing I cut out basically said if I don't love it or it does not have value it is not worth the real estate in my life.

Thanks, Tracy! Why are you happy it happened on an Aries lunar cycle?

 

So...question. My man didn't really make a map (well, a collage)-- he just wrote stuff down. I know that's good enough to set intention, but we were wondering if when I get up there from May 2-7, I can help him cut and paste images and put them over his intentions on the paper? It's not a rising moon but the intentions are set in writing-- this is just the fluff, right?

The Aries new moon sets the tone for the  year.   To a lesser extent the Aries lunar cycle (meaning the full 28 days) speaks to the year.

Whatever seed you planted on this new moon/treasure map clearly is charged up.  Look at the results you have wanted for such a long time.

I think that the next 12 months will move quickly and with a lot of new breakthroughs and horizons for you. 

 

hmm...I think I would skip the images for your guy.   I think I would keep it to the list of intentions.   If he didn't write it on orange paper you may want to have him glue it to the orange paper.   That is all I would have him do.   

 

Next year he can make a map.
