How much time do I have to build my map?
edited:
You have until Saturday April 1 1:23pm EST (by the way day light savings time takes effect the next day). YOu can certainly take more time if you need it but really you should try to have it done by Saturday the 1st at 1:23pm.

Okay, I think I get it. I will just put in my dreams for "my" world. Thank you!
post #223 of 594
yeah! I started mine this morning before I went to work, it made me late but...gotta figure in the long run......

funny thing about the money, i don't feel inclined to put anything about money on there at all now but somehow feel more comfortable about the material things i would like to see. still thinking though...especially about how to picture an end to the mental agony of money.

tracy-congrats about being free of that job, it must feel good.

a side note:
i'm curious how big everyone's maps are? I've got a shiny piece of paper from my son's art supplies that's maybe 14" x24"

hmmmm.....

i did my treasure map this morning. i dropped the little guy off with grandpa and went to a restaurant to do it.

it took the same form this year as last, collage with words and images.

the problem?

i don't really like. and i am worried that negative energy is infecting the map.

i am wondering if this one will grow on me, or if i should scrap the darn thing and take a whole new dirction (i.e. just using the writing of phrases and words like you Tracy).

well i'm sick so dh took the day off and ended up buying a stack of magazines and we all got working on our maps. so far just cutting stuff out that we plan to put into collage form by sat. so far i'm finding more words than images. and i'm realising how much of what i want for the upcoming yr is to do with nature, being outdoors in particular places, and to do with creativity and community. also family and home life. the only material thing i picked so far was a lovely old natural wood kitchen table. dream on...

it was interesting to do it with my family; i had to do my best to mind my own business and not fight over certain pictures

i'm not supposed to pick things for my dh on my map, right? i'd like him to get a fabulous new job, which affects us all, but maybe i have to go for something broader like financial stability...however you represent that.
he said he went straight for a big cut out word, "MONEY". well, it's something we've *never* sought after or asked for in our lives, so why not now, when we could really use a little.

I am starting my treasure map tonight. I have saved tomarrow night, and possibly friday for completing it. I don't know what to expect, maybe I will be done today or not.

DH and DD are doing treasure maps too. Patiently waiting until evening when I can go and get my magazines.

ditch it, Goodcents. YOur treasure map should make you happy when you look at it. It can make you a bit scared and certainly excited ...but it should not make you sad.

sounds like your's is not the right fit. start over, imo.

hugs

Here's a quick question for you wise mamas...I've been mulling over doing a treasure map this year, however, culling and cleaning is hard for me and unfortunately I didn't get a LOT of that done, just a little; I haven't had a lot of time available to do it, and won't have much before time's up for doing the map.

My question is, if I've not clutter busted, should I still do a map? Mine's not really overly ambitious, no wishes for babies or moves or huge changes, just things I want to focus on. So is that all right, d'you think?

(It's funny, I was thinking about this thread for the last few weeks but couldn't make time to focus on the decluttering, then suddenly thought of it again today, and came on to find it was THE day! Neat; definite feel forthe shift of energy.)
post #229 of 594
i haven't read all of this as i'm trying to spend less time at the computer but i get the gist of it and what's odd is that last night i felt a sort of weight lift as i sat down to produce a little goals big goals list in a mindmapping style. i hadn't done this in awhile but i add things that i want to do, complete, have, experience..... i think i'll try the treasure mapping. This sort of project can really get one finetuning their creative ambitions.
nice idea. THanks.

Ella.

YES, YOU Should do a map.

put something about decluttering on your map and you'll end up doing it anyway.

hmmm.. i went out and excercised. i looked at the map again and it is really rather beautiful.

i was in a weird space when i did it though. dh was in a pissy mood this morning and it effected me a bit.

should i still ditch it?
post #232 of 594
one more thing. the map was made with all new supplies (including a new glue stick!). i glued it in my calendar though, which is before the new moon. i really like the idea of it being hidden (instead of all out in the open) and that i would touch it everyday. coolio - even though it is stuck to an older item?
post #233 of 594
You know, dh has been sick all week and we are having some conflict over an issue that effects us both. One that I really wanted to put on my map, so I have waited and not worked on my map today, and haven't gotten any supplies. I'm hoping that things will become more clear before the time is up. Because I don't want to do my map in a bad headspace.
post #234 of 594
Oy...of course there is no money, and no time right now to go and get supplies....

Hopefully I can get something done before the time is up.... I really love doing this. Though this year, I am feeling kind of ambivalent about it. Which is interesting to me....maybe just a small one this year....
post #235 of 594
I just found out about this thread but I'm in. I have no idea how I'll find the time, but I am going to do this. (DS is a 24/7 all Mama all the time kiddo)

adinal last year i was trying to figure my life out. i was at work and came upon this thread just a few hours before it was meant to be done. yet i had a powerful urge to do it. so i took a regular purple A4 paper and wrote on it with a red pencil. of course i wasnt satisfied with it, but i was so happy to do it that i actually got an opportunity to do it - on my lunch break that i was happy with it.

but i hadnt done my research yet, and i hadnt had time to learn the process so i was vague. and a lot of what i wanted came true in the smoggy way that i thought of it.

for instance i was so sick and tired of my constant fixer upper car. i focussed on i was done with the car instead of asking for a new one. guess what?!! i got into an accident and my car was totalled and i still havent been able to afford a car.

anyways i came here to research something... and i got my answer to teh question i was looking for and came upon ur post so thought i would answer.

personally (and correct me if i am wrong anyone) what ultimately matters is the deep feeling/energy you feel while making it and the deep feeling u get when u look at it. it doesnt matter how you make it or what you make it out of. *shrug* at least that is how i feel about it.

well...my own morning has had a couple bumps.

I think the solar eclipse probably clipped my energy. And probably the retrograde Pluto...I will do my writing probably tomorrow...the day just feels off...

I think anyone who is feeling a bit 'off'...don't worry. take these 3 days to find your inner momentum.

goodcents, if you feel good about it. keep it.
if not..then start over.

as I recall you're a libra so maybe the eclipse got you wobbly. lets see if you straighten out..tho it sounds like you are starting to feel better.
post #238 of 594
I've started doing mine, for the first time ever, and I really enjoy the process. Thank you so much for all the inspiration and encouragment, Tracy!

Tonight I find myself focusing on words, goals and ambitions that are vague. Like safety (for my child). Recognition (at work). Communication (in my relationship). What do you think about that? Should I challenge myself to be more specific?
post #239 of 594
I haven't done mine yet either! Dd and I need to agree on where to get our magazines

Tracy...I know you are busy, sorry, I thought I read that we should avoid negative people during the treasure mapping time? My sister is supposed to come over tom. for a couple of hours and she is in a bad place. She isn't overly negative (surprisingly), but she is having some ongoing troubles. Should I postpone the visit until Monday? I thought I might ask her to do a map, too, but not sure if she will..? What do you all think?
post #240 of 594
scorpio here tracy....but i was wondering about the effect of the eclipse.
