On my lunch break today, I went and bought several magazines. When I got home, I sat down and started flipping and cutting. I have worked for 3 1/2 hours straight and needed a break! I am only halfway through the magazines I bought, but am probably done for tonight.
This is the first time I am doing a Treasure Map, so wasn't sure what to expect. I have to remind myself not to edit -- a couple of times, I was attracted to an image, but didn't cut it out for some reason. When I realized I had done that, I went back and cut them out. I may not use them when I assemble the map, but I don't want to edit myself before that.
I am finding myself attracted to images with a lot of green and water -- rivers surrounded by emerald green trees, a waterfall falling over moss covered rocks, skunk cabbage with rain beaded on the leaves. I am feeling peace when I look at these images. I am so grateful for this because my recollection is that green and water together are strong images for wealth and financial abundance and, although we are not struggling financially, I have never had this sense of peace that I am experiencing when looking at these images.
I found a great picture of a mattress!!!
I wanted to share some of the affirmations I have cut out of magazines. I think all of these came from two sources -- O Magazine and The Nature Photographer. Although they may be cut out of the middle of sentences or longer quotes, the phrases appeared in the magazine exactly as I am quoting them here.
focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe. (Albert Einstein, lifted out of the middle of a longer quote)
