I'm in! I've done treasure maps twice now. I am just now feeling the effects of what I wanted to accomplish this year. I'm hoping to declutter my brains out and get this place in order for next treasure map. Thanks Tracy!!

I can't believe how much has come to pass on my maps! This will be my 3rd year & I am SO CHARGED. DH is, too...he ran out of time last year because of work & whatnot and he figured he would finish it in time. Then my map was so incredibly right on. This time we're planning on taking one of his vacation days to make it more of a vision "session", so we don't just use our leftover energy for it. As well as making it a celebration!

Last year I drew/watercolored myself giving birth down on one knee, looking very calm & empowered... when the time came, my water broke & I dropped to one knee and felt her crowning.... I quickly remembered my TM and the calm took over, it was as it was meant to be- like I was getting some kind of "go ahead"... I pushed my babe out into my dh's hands a minute or so later... about 10 minutes before the midwife arrived. What an empowering experience! I still get good vibes & warm fuzzies when I think of it or look at that beautiful image!

I'm going to be doing more of my own imagery this year.

Off to declutter!

Subbing! I didn't make a treasure map last year and I'd really like to this year.

I'm going to be doing some major decluttering in the meantime

I am really excited this year as well. It will be my third map and for the first time I feel like I have a clearer vision of what I want in my life this time. My first two maps were good, and a LOT of positive stuff from last years' map has come to fruition, but there was a lot of empty space in places where I just didn't KNOW what I wanted.

I am spending the next few months decluttering, organizing and simplifying both my house and my mind. I've found a wonderful therapist who is helping me to clearly define goals and needs and how to achieve them both.

I feel a sense of positive energy and possibility

I'm hoping to do treasure maps with my youth group (probably not ON the correct days as we only meet on Sundays, but better than nothing!) this year as well as having a TM party with a few close friends. Last year dh said he'd do it with me and then didn't, so I'm looking forward to having a different experience this time. I may even go away for a few days to do it in a separate space. Sort of a girls' retreat

Anyways, I wanted to sub and get on the band wagon!

I'm fascinated by all the excitement of making a Treasure Map and want to do it too. So is there a link to give me more instructions and directions on what it all entails?

Subbing. This will be my first TM.

Kind of OT, but...
What a lovely story, beeemama! And I mostly had to post because I read your 2nd dd's name and thought "Wow! If I had named myself that is the name I would have picked!" Gorgeous.

And as for the topic... I am glad to have so much time to reflect and purge before gearing up for the 2008 TM. And there is still so much relevance for that 2007 TM, going to dust it off now!

I'm in! Subbing and purging.

Good timing...I've been in literally the biggest decluttering binge of my life, and it feels amazing. Very appropriate for starting TM time!
post #38 of 414
Got it. I have it marked on my calendar with times so I can get it done on time. It's very exciting

Today I am putting seven boxes and bags of stuff into my car to take to The Goodwill. I am so excited to be clearing out stuff. I am also going to be clearing out my garden, to clear up the energy there as well. Many old plants that are not thriving and there needs to be space made for new.

I am on my way!
