How large, where displayed, purpose, mission, etc. "
You know, I'd like to hear more about the answers to those questions too.
I keep my map in my bedroom high enough so I can see it when I am in bed. I love looking at it.
also... and I know you did not ask this but I will cross post something I put up on the other thread--What kind of affirmations should I write?
I am really comfortable with affirmations that speak in what must seem like an oxymoron--broad strokes but specific color.
Meaning... "Our house is peaceful, joyful and abundant."
Note that it is specific...peace, joy and abundant.
But it is broad stroke in that I don't say... "Bob gets a high paying job so we can have a five bedroom house."
Abundant is simply that.. abundant. And perhaps it would not be abundant for Bob to get a high paying job and be gone from the family from 6am until midnight every day... at least that is not abundant in my book.
and maybe 5 bedroom is abundant... or maybe it is not. Maybe in order to make 5 bedrooms work, it means going to a kind of run down neighborhood...where as a 3 bedroom shared with siblings in a nicer neighborhood is much more abundant.
Also, I strongly, strongly, strongly urge people especially those here who are not married/committed to avoid the following-----.. "Steve marries me this year."
that is a big "no, no".
what is a better choice. "I am in a committed loving healthy mutually reciprocal relationship."
We should not impose our wishes.
also, "DS gets into Harvard."
No... instead, "DS gets into the school that makes him soar and builds his confidence for his next journey."
also.. and this is tricky.. if any of you have got people in your life who are addicted to drugs/booze/etc.... I would probably skip them on your map.. because the instinct to fix and help is probably too great. And frankly they have to find their own way ....
but I guess if you really feel you gotta do something with that person.. I might if I had to.. put.. "My interactions with Mike are always uplifting and positive."
Do you see the feeling and vibe the difference?
I think ever since the first year I posted about treasure maps here at MDC which I think was 2003...we have had to talk about how to approach maps so that there is space for the universe to get in it's 2 cents.
