The Official 2007 Treasure Map! - Page 12

post #221 of 543
Really? A picture of myself huh? hmmmm....

I did that two years ago - but not the first year.

What is the "why" behind that?

picture....off to find a picture. Oooh, I know! Does it have to be just me? or can it be me and DD?

No. Do what feels right.

Fantastic!!! I love seeing photos of everyone's maps! I'll put mine up soon, too - it's just waiting for me to add some affirmations and it will be finished.

ack! mamas! I want to put in an affirmation for financial freedom, and I keep thinking of all the scenarios where those finances come because someone dies ... not at all what I want!!!

Any ideas on how to do that affirmation?

thanks a bunch

I am so happy and grateful that money comes to me easily from many sources, with increasing frequency, in the highest possible way for everyone.

Go for it!!

*sigh of relief* that's good. Thank you. I felt really stuck!

*sigh* I'm so close to being done, but I'm drawing a big blank on what to do for the last section. Off to bed, I guess, and hopefully my mind will be clearer and more focused in the morning.

I'm almost done I put a nice picture of me and the kids in the center, cuz I felt funny cutting the kids out of the picture, but now I need a picture of Ron too. The map looks weird with us and not him. Also, where or what might you put for homeschooling? We love hsing but I am always torn between unschooling and using an eclectic curriculum :

when you have it in the closet will it be up on the wall of the closet so you can see it every time you open the door... or is put away under the clothes/boxes?

I need help with an affirmation or some kind of positive statement. I have had major anxiety basically since I became pregnant with DS. It goes up and down but I do worry a lot and get really anxious - generally about things beyond my control.

I need an affirmation about being free from anxiety, worry, and fear and trusting that all is good and right and will turn out well. Everything I try to write is coming up about what I'm "free from" which refers to the "don't want" which you're not supposed to do right?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I finished cutting out images and was feeling exhausted, so I took a nap for about an hour and a half. Then I picked out the paper for each of the sections. I organized my map according to the Feng Shui baguas. Each of the nine sections has its own 12x12 piece of paper which are:

1. gold
2. orange
3. red
4. blue
5. yellow
6. a pastel blue with little sayings like "it's a boy" written all over it in white
7. forest green
8. black
9. white, with a silver diamond overlaid in the center

I laid the sheets out in order on my dining room table and then went through my pile of cut out images and phrases and piled them on the appropriate section. I was surprised to find that I actually had something for each of the sections. I was not concious of this as I was cutting out, I just cut what spoke to me. I did end up printing 3 things from the internet. I also went back and cut out 2 more pictures because I wanted some pictures for the family section that showed a mother, father and baby. All the baby images I had were just the baby or a mother and baby, none with the father in the picture.

I laid out and glued down 4 of the sections -- fame/reputation, self-knowledge, career, and angels. The other sections are basically laid out, but not glued down. I am going to bed now, however. I will finish everything else tomorrow afternoon.

Tracy -- In the other Treasure Map Thread, you mentioned that next year maps will be square, but didn't really say why. My map this year is square -- a 12x12 page for each section, so when laid out in order the whole thing is a 3x3 foot square.

DH got home from work late and I was in the middle of sorting and arranging the sections. He asked what I was doing and I told him making a Treasure Map of the things I want in the next year. (I hadn't really talked to him about this project because he has been working a tremendous amount of hours and has been feeling overwhelmed trying to cope with anything else). He didn't really say anything, but about 1/2 hour later he came and gave me a hug and said he thought it was smart that I was doing this. He said, "Maybe this will help us focus so we can get the things we really want." I just love this man!

I was talking about an astrological thing that will occur with treasure maps starting next year between pluto/sun..i haven't double checked it yet but I think it will be going on next year....

Uh, it is facing the wall so DH won't see it. : I take it I need to put it somewhere that I can celebrate it and see it often?

Deep down I knew that, otherwise I don't think I would have asked about it. I'll get it out of the closet tomorrow. Heaven help me with the discussion that will inevitably follow.

I had this same problem. I wanted to be free from money concerns, but more importantly I wanted to be free of worry. I wrote, "I am free. My thoughts are light. I work through problems effortlessly. I have plenty." HTH

What's the problem with your husband seeing it? My husband is a complete skeptic and I'm not a follower of the Secret, but I was a bit nervous telling him about the map last year because I thought he'd make fun of me. I let us turn it into a bit of a light joke between us, but knew what my map was really about for me. This year I chose to read my affirmations aloud to DH and told him what the map was about for me, which helped because I used language that he could relate to. He decided to make a map this year himself! He even did it already and everything. Just wondering if your situation might be similar...

My TM is almost done. Tonight was gluing night and I got all but three squares done. Like many I found that words worked better for me. (and i'm a libra not a gemini I also did mine square because that seemed to be what came out when I put it together.

My 8 yo dd has been doing this with me the past few days and tonight she completed hers. She was so happy doing it, and I was amazed at the affirmations she came up with all on her own. My dh cut out some things that resonated with him, and I included them on my (our) TM. The middle picture is of the two of us together.

I am having trouble with one spot. Career. I am doing the career I want. I'm a mama. Do I put pictures of mamas in there? Or what kinds of things?

Also, where do you put material things? Most of the map is spiritual/personal in nature, but there are a few things like.. a bed, and a camcorder that we really would like. Which category would they go in best?

Whoa, I am exhausted and utterly satisfied. I am pretty much finished (2 am! yikes) besides a few finishing touches and I had no idea how much energy it was going to take. I LOVE IT! It was such an amazing process....from what I thought it was going to be like when I was cutting stuff out to what evolved. There were total moments of feeling overwhelmed to being frustrated. It was also frustrating trying to work on it with ds, 2.5 around ( no kidding!) and he went to bed SO late tonight, but the things I was focusing on my TM really helped me keep priorities with ds, ie...why get mad and frustrated b/c he wants extra love and attention from mama?

I will try to post a pic but since my digital camera is now an image glued to my TM I will have to get creative and borrow one or something.

I think everyone's maps are so beautiful and inspiring. It really is a window into people's soul. It lets you love someone you don't even know!

Nature for work I included characteristics I want to embody in my work (parenting or other).....like gratitude, balance etc. Since mothering is your work you could focus on some goal you envision for you dcs this year, like great nights sleep, siblings working together happily, joyful family meals etc. That's what I would do.

Ditto Ditto Ditto, here I am up with you at 2am! I have a 2.5 year old too who wouldn't sleep last night. I actually put a picture of her sleeping on my treasure map! This is my first treasure map although I have some experience manifesting. I was totally suprised about the amount of energy it took, too. But I know that is a good thing because the energy will go toward making it work.

I am so honored to share this journey with all you awesome Mamas.

Tamara
