So I am sure hoping that the 'soft ending' time is ok, 'cause I've put a lot into this!
hey!! i didn't know you were TMing! woot woot! i wanna see pics when you're done.

i'm on a break because Ava just ripped up my fame/reputation area and i was in a negative space about it. so rather than finish on-time but grumpy, i'd rather wait until i'm in a positive space and finish it when i can.

Mine is full, full, full, too. I think it's a personal thing. I could sit and look at my map for hours and my eyes just flow over it. It doesn't look cluttered to me (though others might think it so).

Help!!!

This is my first Treasure Map, and I'm afraid I'm going about it all wrong. I'm putting some important things on it (like a reminder to have more sit-down family dinners), but I'm also putting some really "shallow" things on it, as well.

For instance, I found a picture of the perfect pedicure. I have been wanting a pedicure for AGES, but never really thought of it as a need. (Although I suspect it would do wonders for my state of mind... )

Can I put the pretty tootsies on my TM, or is that just too silly to request of the universe???

ETA: I still have a few things to glue; is it too late to still be working on the map?

I would say, add the tootsies! Even some of the things we feel are shallow have a deeper meaning. A pedicure to me would mean, personal time, pampering myself, learning to give to myself without guilt, and enjoying my body. All those things mean so much more than just "a cute pedicure." KWIM? I'm sure if you think about it, it means more than just that to you. Especially if you feel drawn to include it on your TM.

I haven't quite finished mine, there is still time! Glue away!
post #286 of 543
pretty tootsies are just energy like anything else. and they don't hurt anybody in some cosmic debt way.

my board is also VERY busy and i am wondering, is this the first or one of the first years for you other "busy" map women, also? i think that's why mine is so busy. it's all new and i am so frenzied to try and get it all in or something. and back to the birth analogy, it's like my first birth vs. my second. with the first i had so many details and was so psyched up to control and manipulate and plan. then with the second i just eased into and said "ah. it's gonna go fine."

i'll be veeeeeery curious to see what tracy has to say about this "mysterious" new moon energy she's referring to. maybe that's it - who knows!
post #287 of 543
It's my first year and mine is super busy too. In fact I have so much cut out I couldn't fit it all and I had to prioritize. I probably could have filled a wall in my bedroom!
post #288 of 543
Ok - all glued. I got up and did it while dh & dd were in the shower. I have some things to add, but for the greater part itis done. I feel better, but I do feel some tweaking and adding coming. I am fascinated to see what you have to say about this Tracy. This year has been hard.
post #289 of 543
yay, mommas! i have read and nodded along with so many posts, there is no way i could reply to them all.... but i did just want to share two things--

one, i'm sure others have done this, but it worked sooo well for me, i thought i'd share just in case-- i took photos, then found some on the internet as well, and got them all printed out at the store... i even photoshopped some of them-- there was a lotus in sunlight photo that *really* spoke to me (that hot pink image i posted about before)... but the edge of the leaf had been munched by a bug, and i didnt want that energy on my tm, so i edited it. anyhow-- i feel like mine is perfect, and it cost $5 in photo printing.

second-- i'm certain others have experienced this, but a note about GOING WITH THE GUT-- already i've found deeper meanings in some of the images i *just had to have*... for example, out of "nowhere" i realized i NEEDED to have a dolphin on my tm. HAD TO HAVE ONE. spent a long time online searching for the perfect shot.... no clue why, just needed a dolphin. well, it fits perfectly in space #9, right... AND it has the added bonus of making me realize that i need to take <one year old> DS to meet dolphins this year... when i put the tm on the floor, he toddled right up to it and started "petting" the dolphin. made me all gooey. had to share.

~huzzah & hugs & kisses~

Wow! Tracy, you're amazing! And the maps by the mamas on here- WOW!

So, I only recently came to this forum and found this thread on- guess what? April 17th! I decided to make a map and I finished it last night.

I really need some thoughts/advice from you manifesters

I started a new job last month, which I thought was perfect for me. The reason why is because I studied the organization for many years, and I volunteered for the them. After one month of volunteering, the head told me she had created a position for me, with great hours and some flextime, which is important because I'm a single mom. This job is aligned with my destiny, and I was thrilled to be amongst a group of people whose work I studied as a teenager! I know one can have a certain interest and not be at the RIGHT place for that. For example, I took a related job a few years ago and it was apparent right away that, even though it was in my area, it was not the right place. But, with this one, since it came to me through volunteering, and rather effortlessly, I thought it was meant to be. However, since I arrived, things have not been well. I love the work but my boss, who was great when I volunteered, doesn't seem to like me much at all. She seems very intimidated by me, and I feel that there is some racial tension here. This last point really frustrates me, considering she knew I was a person of color when she created the position for me.

OK, so I placed my business card on the "Work" sector of my map. I've read through the entire thread here and someone said you may get the job you asked for, but you may be miserable, so it's best to ask for what's best for you and not say anything specific. But, I never "asked" for this job. It just fell into my lap! So, now that I'm here, I'm trying to make things better. I didn't mention anything about changing anyone else's behavior, but I placed my card there and wrote affirmations about it being a peaceful work environment and that I and the org are successful in our goals.

Do you think this is appropriate? What is your take on the situation, based on the limited info you have?

TIA!!!

I would - it may seem shallow at the moment, but may be more meaningful than you realize. Maybe your feet moving in a beautiful new direction? Or maybe the luxury & relaxation that a pedicure represents? I know there were many images I put on my TM that just felt right - really resonated for me even though they didn't represent specific things I was seeking, but now as I look at it every day ( I look at it & read through everything as I brush my teeth am & pm) I notice that things ended up where they needed to be....everything is in exactly the right place at the righ time. We manifested a check for $1200 yesterday and another one for $200 - both were unexpected and the $1200 check is going to be a recurring monthly payment to us (damages to DH for on the job health issue). Woohoo!

this has been an extraordinary experience for me!! I loved every single moment of it and boy was it a totally surreal experience in some ways!

I loved how close it brought me to my core and to my dreams. Such a fragile and beautiful space. Such a sacred energy.

Here is a link to my Map http://s173.photobucket.com/albums/w...1177087929.pbw

THANK YOU TRACY!!!!

Yep, I'm a first year mapper with a busy board. I like to think of it as "thorough"

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
TAMARA!!! woohoo, grrl, good to see you on here! ~waving wildly~
(ok, we know each other in person )

i have always been so jealous of you mamas who know one another in person! ok, i know julie too....but i don't think she's TMing....

Okay, well... I've finished. But to be honest, it looks kind of spare and ameteurish.

I didn't actually plan on doing the treasure mapping, so I ended up using about 5 magazines that I hadn't even really picked out myself... and using some left-over supplies from my (also ameteurish) scapbooking.

All in all, I guess it's not horrible for a last-minute decision.

But one of the sections even, only has one thing on it. I couldn't really find a good representation of "work," so I put a flower arrangement on there, and an affirmation about "the perfect arrangement with a publisher." Cheesy, but the best I could come up with. :

Next year, I'll prepare better. :

First time mapper here. Had a hard time focusing on it, but that may be due to my newbie-ness.

Map is *heavily* skewed to pregnancy, birth, etc. I ovulated sometime on the 17th or 18th, seems like the perfect time - here's hoping :
post #298 of 543
Good Morning! I am enjoying seeing everyone's maps, thanks all for sharing
I finished mine in the wee hours of night last night and had one question. I wanted to put a photo of me with dh and dd in the middle of the map, but for the life of me, had a heck of a time finding a photo with all 3 of us in it So I put one photo of me and dd, a close up with just our heads and then a photo of dh's head glued right next to us. Does that sound too disjointed? Should I try and find a photo of the 3 of us together? Any thoughts?

Ebony! Good to see you here, haven't seen you since The Wire thread. I wanted to say I think that your affirmations with your business card sounds like a really good idea and good direction for you to go with positive manifestations for your job.

I made two maps last year. I made one all about the house we want to build and then one about everything else. It felt really good to do it that way. I dont know if it's kosher, but it felt good to me.

I did cover up a few very personal things that I don't want to share, so if something looks odd or out of place, it probably is.

I also superimposed my face to most of the women on my board. My son thinks it's creepy, but it works well for me.
Oh, I like the way you put your face on the women!
post #299 of 543
ok, so it's 1:47 and i'm not totally done yet either. oh well *shrug*
actually i only need some finishing touches, which are the parts i want to write in stuff.

tamara, can you come over and take a photo of my map so i can share? maybe i should have put a digital camera on my map, and a faster newer computer that could handle one
nah....that's for next year.

i used a combination of tracy's bagua thingy and one i found on the 'net, so my #9 space is for travel. i don't have any angels that i want to put. i reallyreallyreally want a small RV so i put all the travel energy into that, and that's just about all i have on that square, besides a rooftop car carrier.

back to finishing, after i get some food!

I love seeing everyone's maps! I started and finished mine last night (we were up until 1am having fun!). I'm glad I waited until I had an energy shift. My mind has been very preoccupied lately with family matters and I didn't want to start when I wasn't ready. I am so excited about how it came out.

Here is it.

It focuses a lot on me and healing/strength, plus gardening - something I want to fine-tune. Dh did one too and was excited to work with me. Our older boys even made their own. This weekend I want us to make a TM or vision statement in honor of Earth Day ... things we want to manifest as a family to help lessen our ecological footprint and things that will also heal the Earth. My oldest is very into the environment right now and we've been talking about focusing on healing the Earth rather than the doom of global warming. So, I think taking the energy of TM'ing and extending it to Earth Day will really help him shift his focus.
