Treasure Map 2006 - Page 2

post #21 of 594
Thank you, Tracy

I'm here...thinking, thinking, thinking...
post #22 of 594
As Tracy said - my including less things was not just about including less - but about focusing. I took two pictures off my old map, one of a house, and one of a nursing baby and incorporated them into this year's. As sort of a "hey, this still needs working on!" and as a way to bring some of the energy I built up in the previous year over. I think there might be a couple of pictures I do that with this year as well. My two maps looked stunningly different. I didn't follow the bagua for either one. My first map, was smaller, there was no white space at all, and no words, except the ones I wrote. This year's has a lot of white space, is bigger, has a ton of words, I wrote none, and very specific pictures, all revolving around a couple of themes. Each one felt right for the time I made it. Though the feel of this one still feels coser to correct for me for this year, so we will see what motivates me.

I put stuff on there about having a normal delivery and having a healthy baby....I am kind of hoping that is somethingI can put onto next year's. Not sure I am ready for a baby a month early!!!

rynna - I know that you have been going through some rough stuff lately. Try not to think of this as "thinking happy thoughts" but just opening your mind up to possibilities. The first year I did this, while I was excited to try it, I was super negative, into year 2+ of trying to get pregnant. It took a while to figure out what I wanted on there, and I had a lot of self censoring going on, finding a picture I liked and saying "oh no, that won't happen." It took me until the second day to really start to be able to pull out a picture and say "hey, that would be wonderful, I want that" and stick it on. So, if you can buy a couple magazines on the 29th and thumb through them, and see what you think. I am sorry that everything feels so negative right now. I have been in that space, it is no fun, and it feels like it won't end.

I just talked with my daughter and she gets home from tour on the 26th, giving her a bit of time

She's excited to do this and wants to see my treasure map from last year.

Now, I'm looking forward to this.

rynna, I agree with Adina. I think it's a really good idea to still do one and just try to be open and willing.

Yes to all the above. I think you might start feeling a little relief when mercury goes direct on the 26th.....

and just to add:

I think a lot of us moms have a hard time expanding our vision for our lives. First of all most of us are in defense/fence mode most of the day..."Don't run in the street. Hold my hand. Come here, I need you close to me." "shoot, we better save our money we are going to need it for ____" ..it is all so 'fence thinking".. for lack of better phrasing... so if you say those things enough or think them enough in a day...to suddenly look out on the horizon and have a big vision can be difficult. I know from what I speak. I promise.

anyway, take the next couple weeks to sort through stuff. you'll get there.

Thank you Tracy. I look forward to doing the map again this year. Last year a house was on my map, with the words "An absolute steal." We bought our home in August, and while it wasn't quite a "steal" since it needs alot of work, it is still 1/2 of the the median cost of homes in our area.

Secondly, its so funny that the treasure map time is early this year. I actually just threw my map away. I just felt I needed to get rid of it. And I guess that was really my heart talking since the new time is just around the corner.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!! April 8th. My son's bday. I was all scheduled to have my treasure map brunch the next day (saturday, april 9th) but I had to (obviously) cancel.

On a sidenote, but still relevant I think.....

I kept telling my midwife, my DH, & I think even you Tracy that I didn't want me son to be born before the new moon. I had labored for most of the dat, but promptly after the new moon arrived, my water broke & my son arrived just minutes later

A day after we got home, & just hours before the new moon was over, I sent DH out with DD. I made my 2005 Teasure Map with my newborn son sleeping next to me :

My Ds was born this day too! He was 18 days late by then- maybe he was just waiting for that date-firey little Aries

I'm very excited about doing a treasure map, and I'm going to tell my womens circle about it tomorrow when we meet- I bet they'll want to do one too. Thank you for this thread Tracy.

Yes, yes, yes.... I said this in previous years and I'll remind everyone now. The period just before the Treasure Map is called the balsamic phase. Which is the end of the moon's phase. This is the phase when we get rid of stuff. Get rid of clutter. Get rid of things that are bugging us. Get rid of ick. Try if you can to clear some space in your life so you can be ready for the treasure map. Remember, Einstein said, "NO TWO THINGS CAN OCCUPY THE SAME SPACE." Read that several times... now ask yourself, do I have space in my house, my family, my time, my life in general for more? If the answer is no. Then start housecleaning!

Clear out the stuff between now and the 29th. Now do you understand why it is important not to start your map before the new time?
Thanks for that reminder, Tracy.... I want to do that this year... I think it'll make things work better. Also, since we really want to move, I think I will pack at least one box of things I want to keep but rarely use, to show the Universe I really want to move!

Also, if anybody has good books laying around not being read, I just heard about this fun way to pass them along....http://www.bookcrossing.com/home

I love decluttering, and I always have such a good time doing it around this period. Yesterday it was the kids clothes, closets and drawers.

Today it was my filing cabinet.

I find I think about what will go into the treasure map when I go through the decluttering excercises. Plus it feel great to purge old crap.

This sounds wonderful and I'm excited to join all of you wonderful mamas!

post #32 of 594
I'm in! I lurked on the thread last year and I am patiently () awaiting the 29th!
post #33 of 594
Tracy- thanks for pointing me to this thread! I will most def. be doing my treasure map!

I already read about half of last years thread and will be getting back there for ideas and inspiration.

Do you think it's cool to print out some pics- I've been sitting on some inner works here too- so I think it'll be difficult to find pics in magazines for that. I plan to use the bagua map for mine.
post #34 of 594
I'll be doing it. I barely squeaked in last year~i read the thread just hours before the deadline~ so i did more of a list than a map. going to go look at it now to see how good i did
post #35 of 594
I've never heard about this but I'm in! At the very least, I hope to stir my creative juices! LOL
post #36 of 594
this sounds so great! i am definitely interested. can't wait
thanks for sharing tracy
post #37 of 594
It's cool that so many people are doing this!

Let's dream BIG!
post #38 of 594
Well, I started purging yesterday!!! My closet (you know, one of those walk ins that you cannot walk in? Yeah, I have too many clothes....I own a boutique.....) Almost done with that, and it sure feels better! By the end of the month I want every closet purged. They aren't that bad, we just moved here last summer, but bad enough to feel stagnant.

post #39 of 594

Yay! This will tie right into many other things I have planned for this month! I've been looking for just such a project for after the equinox!
Blessings! Kelly
