For weeks I've been revved up, almost bouncing off the walls with excitement. I've completely decluttered, space cleared, feng shui'ed and spring cleaned my house. I've been completely elated. I've had ideas about my map but was waiting until today to really see what felt right.

Well, I'm here today and feel completely uninspired. Nothing I had planned on doing feels right, and well, nothing else does either. I feel completely empty and hollow. I woke up sick, which I know is a big part of it coupled with the fact that I only slept an hour and a half last night (which is very common with DS's sleep problems, but usually doesn't make me feel like this). DH is out of town and I'm taking care of two very sick children as well.

I wasn't expecting to feel bad today since I've been on cloud nine for weeks. Can anyone think of a reason this might be happening? Where should I go from here?

I don't want to focus on the negative or bring down this thread. I'm still excited, but confused. Help?
I think you are just having a natural lull after being revved up. I find that happens to me, too. Maybe just go slow in starting and see if you get inspired. Just honor where you are.

If I'm in a "bad place" today, should I go ahead with my TM?
I had a really disturbing LoA related dream, and I'm having lots of issues with ds's constant whining and nursing. I've reacted to him in really crappy ways today.
I feel like things could get better if I go ahead with my TM. But I wonder if some of that negativity could seep in?

I was having a difficult time w/ affirmations and didn't really see anything that I resonated with, Until I pulled out my Power Thought cards by Louise Hay!

I'm just so excited right now!

DH is even taking dd out for awhile!!!

Urgh... I am in a craptastic mood today as well. Didn't help that the kids would NOT leave me alone for TEN LOUSY minutes at the bookstore to peruse magazines. I even told them before we went that it was REALLY important to me and I needed them to really, really cooperate. I ended up leaving empty handed. : :

I am hoping that dh can watch them tomorrow so I can get the mags... but I'm totally down and crabby about it now.

I've been looking forward to this for months and now I just can't seem to get motivated.

About the feng shui set up. Is there a special design, like 123 on the top 456 middle etc. or could I do it in a circular design.....is it better to go clockwise or vice-versa

subbing

post #48 of 543
Hi all! I got some mags today with a friend, with minimal toddler interference, so I'm off to start cutting! Had to sub to this, though.

I was awake (lying in bed nursing ds) this morning right at the New Moon, and I felt the energy shift! And boy did it feel GOOD! :

I must say that having the new moon on the final day taxes are due (here in Mass. yesterday was a state holiday) is a bit challenging in terms of keeping positive. But I am honestly feeling up to the challenge!

questions....and some thoughts...

I'm in a really crappy mood...my energy is so low...what happened?


Well, I have been doing these maps for 11 years and I am always excited as we build to the New Moon. But there have been a few maps that the energy was a little slower than others..meaning some maps took the entire 3.5 days to eek out... some happened in the first day and half or 2 days.. all I can say is that it is all good. Take your time.

I do think a lot of the excitement is the anticipation and then we hit the day and there can be a ''Now what?" energy. That is totally okay. Just take your time..get some tea/coffee/ get cozy..take some time... it just means you need to get quiet. Start percolating. Take your time.

If you guys who are feeling a bit 'off'' can get dp to watch the kids..even a trip to the magazine stand can be inspiring if for no other reason than to open you up. I am not even saying you have to buy magazines.. it is just an opportunity to stand in front of a bunch of images and see what calls to you.

do not lose heart, dear friends.. just be gentle. It is like birth.


Are there some good prototype affirmations?

What is the deal with the orange color?

Before Treasure Maps, my old astrologer would have his students write down their affirmations and wishes and goals on orange paper. It is a lower chakra color along with red... more on the colors go here:

seriously, follow your gut. the beauty about feng shui grid is that it lays out 9 areas of life which kind of are good 'check offs'..but seriously, follow your own instinct on this one!

It's weird, I was *so* excited about this last night, but I'm also feeling really 'blech' today. I have a 4 magazines that are still in their plastic, though. Can't afford to go out & choose even one for myself, but hopefully there'll be something good in the ones I have.

Now I just need to find something I can put my pictures on & decide what I want.

What do we do with the maps when we're done? Do we put them away? Put them up somewhere & look at them often/occasionally? Or does it even matter, is the creating them the important part?
post #53 of 543
I have felt the same way! The last few days I've been excited and FORCING myself not to write down the things that I was thinking about! Now today, I feel overwelmed at work and don't even feel like the mags I bought today @ lunch are going to have anything in them. Hopefully I will feel differnt tonight. Here's to getting a "good feeling"!!!

Oh wow. I woke up right at the shift, too. And not only that, but AF appeared right then! My cycles always seem to match the moon.

Question ... dh and I bought a couple of magazines that we really liked last month (we had babysitting for the boys and took advantage of it). The magazines got put up on a shelf in my hutch so they are pretty much "new". Anyways, we were also going to use the Internet and our printer for images (I'd rather print out a couple pictures on one page rather than buy an entire magazine for one image). Is that okay to do? I mean, it doesn't have to come all from magazines does it? It's not like magazines hold some weird treasure map energy do they?

Oh, and one thing ds#1 wants to manifest is another trip to a Dodger's game. So, we were talking about finding a picture of Dodger's Stadium online and printing it out. Dh mentioned that we have a picture of him and the two older boys from the game they saw last year ... can an old picture like that be used for something for this year? My wondering was is that the boys in the picture are almost a year younger than now, and yet the intention is to manifest the game at this age. Does that make sense? Is there anything wrong/bad-energy in using a dated picture to visualize what you want to manifest for this year?

Yippeee!! My first Treasure Map party guest just arrived, I can't wait to get started!!!
post #57 of 543
There must be something in the air. I have really wanted to do this. Last year life was so full that I cut out all the pictures but missed the magic window so they're still sitting in a baggie since I figured there was no point in making it once the time had passed.

I have been really looking forward to mapping this year. I invited several friends from my grad school study group. We're a pretty close bunch and we're all about to graduate (June 10.) I thought it would be very cool to be able to map our next year together as we enter a big time of transition. For one reason or another now only 1 is for sure coming and 1 other is a maybe and the other 4 are no's. :

I am in all kinds of flux right now and I'm really trying to embrace the idea that this is all positive but mostly I'm just overwhelmed. : I quit my job to make room for something new to happen once I get this degree in June. However, the extraction process is taking a long time and there is WAY too much to do to get out.

On top of this, there are all kinds of deliverables coming due in the next two weeks. They must be done to graduate. The # of things I have to do between now and May 2 is STAGGERING . I really and truly have no idea how I am going to accomplish this. I am sure I will one way or another because I have to but because of all this - I have spent absolutely no time thinking about my map or what I want or anything and now I'm feeling irresponsible to have a mapping party when I should be writing papers out the ying yang. :

I just want to cry. : What am I doing??

Ok gotta go get magazines cuz I can't cancel now. I just have to push through this crappy energy.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Hmmm, I dont know about the photo of the Dodger's game, I dont think there would be anything wrong with using it, but I see your point about it being an old photo. If you felt uncomfortable about using it, maybe print some from the Dodger's website like you mentioned. I am absolutely printing some images off the internet for my map, I know we can make the map in whatever form works best for us, (painting, photoshop/computer, words only) so I think whatever makes you feel good, go for it!

Sending everyone lots more good Treasure Map vibes

My Treasure Map was done of about noon today and I am so proud of it!!! The only preparation I did was to get my scissors/magazines/glue stick out the night before -- and at 7:35 am on the dot today ( I need all the help I can get ) I sat with my tea as DH watched dd, and worked on it --- then took some breaks of course, then my mom came over to play with dd (which they both love!) while I finished it!!

I LOVE it!! It just flowed SO magically for me... I had done one vision board (not treasure map) before this and it was cool and all, but I feel this was divinely inspired or something -- I did use the feng shui bagua of the nine sections and used intention and intuition...

You can see it HERE

You can't see how bad ass it really is because some of the words/intentions aren't able to be read from the picture alone, but I LOVE it, love it love it!!!


Thank you Tracy for introducing this to me and all of us!!!!!

I wanted to wait till the moon was no longer VOC but I'm not feeling that motivated anyway for some reason. I kinda feel like just slapping up last years I got pretty much everything on my treasure map last year but heck a little more of the same is good too. We did go get new poster boards and dh and I went and bought magazines but the only ones that stood out for me were Saveur and Dog Fancy

hmmmmmm a new dog and more gourmet food in the coming year? I haven't cut and pasted yet though.
