In light of the new moon energy "Moon, Moon, Moon, I can see...Moon, Moon, Moon, You're taking care of me!" And from the song "Mahalo" (which is a Hawaiian word that means thank you/gratitude) "Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo for everything (to everyone, etc)" This is especially significant to me...I having been trying to cultivate gratitude - and specifically MAHALO in my life...the two ideas really gave me a boost
I have no idea who she is, either But I found her on YouTube after reading this - not those songs, but "I'm Gonna Catch You", and she has such great energy!

Yesterday I bought magazines and cut out lots of things, but I still wasn't sure what I was doing... Then lying in bed last night I had this idea to draw myself in the middle, and put the other things around me, affirmations and pictures. And that feels good. I've been focusing lately on loving myself and my body, so it fits. I know there are pieces I've yet to find for the map, and I also know I'll find them and have them all in place in time.

Which doesn't leave me time for reading all of this thread and my LoA thread, too.... But I'll check in when I can! Happy mapping! OR should I say treasure-ing?
Wow, I am doing something very similiar. I had started with a rectangular grid shape...and it morphed into a circle with me in the center. I chose to match the baguas to the 4 quarters, and even leaned towards pictures and words that matched the quarter colors. (yellow=east, red= south, blue=west, green=north)

How interesting that so many of us went with a circle.

I got the small size of poster board for my map, but I think it might be too small. Either I need to get a bigger size, or I need to pare down the amount of stuff I wantto put on there. It's actually not a ton of different stuff, but lots of images of beautiful home spaces and gardens, and some of the images I clipped are quite large. This is my first year doing this. Any suggestions?

I have the parts laid out on top of the small posterboard and I am letting it percolate some!

Another question: when the moon goes void of course tonight, how long will it remain void of course?

As we were looking at it last night before bed I got tears in my eyes. Then of course this morning I had to laugh when she raced out of bed looking for "the shoes the universe brought me"!!
My ds1 is exactly the same, made me realise he has total faith in the process (I can learn a lot from him!! )

Your dd sounds so sweet, I'm glad she enjoyed TMing

It isn't what I read. I was just explaining what feels right to me.

I purchased one magazine because I knew it would be a good one with a lot of positive messages in it. Though I didn't have much money to spend, I was planning on buying a few more. After an hour of browsing, no other ones stood out for me. Yet a few I had at home, and a few even well loved ones I really connected with. So I used some new images, and some old ones that really spoke to my spirit.

I do think the intention is whats most important.

Moon goes void of course at 7:20pmEDT until Thursday at 11:51am EDT
subtract one hour for CDT, two for MDT and 3 for PDT

I haven't been reading this thread much, as I have my friend's kids here along with ds today, but I got this message in an e-mail, so jumped in with the astrology info.
gtg now

For the astrologically inept, what does void of course mean? How is this relevant to our mappy goodness?

I guess this map is really 'speaking' to me!!!
: I have that happening as well. The first image that really struck me was of a stream/river bubbling along. On my drive home today I thought of this:

Quote:
Draw Paint Knit Write Sew Dye Create

My creativity flows alongside my spiritual path, full of my gushing emotion.
Does that make any sense? Is it an affirmation.. or some random thing that came to me?

I forget who asked, but I just applied the bagua to the circle. There is another one, specifically for a circle, but I didn't have it with me last night at my girlfriends house.

I was really feeling just blah yesterday. After planning an excursion into the city to meet up with some girlfriends I almost canceled my trip just 3 hours before it started. My husband and my friend motivated me, but I really didn't want to go. I am glad i did. It was fun.
I don't know if anyone has already mentioned this (i have not read all the posts) but there is the wheel of life ... i have seen it done different ways but here is a link to one:

That is why making a decision and moving on it is valuable... that is why if you can build it between now and Friday you will be moving like an aries during aries new moon.... it is about instinct and trust. Probably two of the most important traits one can access.
I'm an aries, that's usually what I do. That actually came up today in my coaching group. Someone said i have a casualness about doing big things. Like - oh, ok, I'll just do that. No huge plan, just do it.

I just printed off a picture of myself for my TM. Then I'll work on it some more tonight.
I'm having a wonderful day today - money coming in, 2 reporters calling me to quote me in articles, and my friend working on getting an article about me in the local paper. One of my goals has been to be more in the media, and it's happening!
post #133 of 543
How specific is too specific for a TM? I didn't cut any pictures yet, but I wrote down a bunch of the things I am looking for in the next year last night and I was wondering how pointed I should make the requests. One in particular is a safe birth of a healthy baby in June. I had listed peaceful, joyful, beautiful birth and then added safe to add to it. My idea of a safe, beautiful, joyful, peaceful birth is one with no interventions and is a vertex vaginal birth -- does that need to be on there or is that in the intention of the first part?

I'm having a horrible day. Yesterday I had a sever backache that is still hanging on a bit today, but has mostly morphed into a serious head-and-neck ache. My head hurts so bad. My 5-month-old is teething fiercely and just crying and fussing most of the time and hasn't slept much. In fact he woke up the 2yo from his nap too. I've had the 2yo in front of the TV almost all day. I just want to crawl back into bed and wake up tomorrow! This is NOT normal for me, I am wondering what energy is affecting so negatively? I know I'm not the only one having a weirdly bad day today. I am trying to stay positive.

Let me know if you figure it out! I swear there's something weird going on today.
I hope you feel better.

Tracy - I never knew that about the picture! The only decent pic was taken of me when I had a really bad cold. Somehow that strikes me as not the best pic to put on the treasure map.

I do hav ea question though. This year my map is mostly words and phrases. It i very "macro" so to speak. But in one way, I don't want my specific desires to get lost. Can I write specific intentions on the back of my map"

On second thought, I wonder if I am internalizing some of my upset emotions about the VT shooting. It really upset me, and maybe on some level it feels wrong to be positive when other people are hurting so much. I think my headache and backache might be subconciously in solidarity with those that lost loved ones. I feel so bad for them, and worried about this world, so I manifest those feelings in my body. Sorry if this is OT.

I think it's just hard having TMing right after such a tragedy. Any thoughts on that?

YK, this is an excellent point. I hadn't thought of that. I do not follow news anymore, and I don't watch TV (well, only 1 hour a week), so I just know a little about what goes on based on what the little blurbs on Yahoo tell me. So I thought I was going to let it go easily, but when I read this, it struck a chord in me. Dh and I had briefly spoken about how horrible it was that there were suddenly all these parents without children (and brothers and sisters who lost a sibling). New members of our "club", as he put it, that no one wants to belong to. So sad.

I think you are right. I think this is my problem, too.

I swear, the universe must be holding out on some really good magazines for me. I have saved every junk mail mag/catalog we have gotten for the last 2 weeks, and I went thru them yesterday and only cut out a few things that spoke to me, I thought I would run up to the little sotre about 10 miles away, and see what they had today, so I did that and they had none left, and no milk either, but I did have a good esspresso and chat :LOL. I have to go into town tomarrow afternoon, and will stop somewhere and pick some up, but I doubt I will get my TM done before next week, because I am doing a big craft fair all day Sat, and a horse clinic on sunday, and I need to get ready for the craft fair, and go get my horse out of the winter pasture and bring him in closer to the house so I can catch him on Sunday, which all have to be done on Friday.

I am also feeling a circular pattern, with the different sections radiating out from the center, like the spokes of a wheel.
