My girlfriend and I worked on ours tonight.

I only have three sections "done" and I still have to add a photo of me to the one and the affirmations. Interestingly, my creativity section is multi-media and multi-textured, which is exciting visually and stimulating mentally.

Will work on it more tomorrow, but for now I need to plug in my camera battery so I can work on it at all.

post #105 of 455
I was up intil midnight last night, I was energised and inspired : Most of my images are on and these are the affirmations I am planning ( I do the bagua set up so 1 for each)

Little worried its too wordy? I also have cut out and painted/written words on my map. This year I am much more sure of what I want and I don't know how to condense it down?!wdyt?

I live a life of abundance, everything I want or need is with me and I greatfully allow it in

I am admired for my loyalty, wisdom, compassion and courage. I am fun and people enjoy my company and value my friendship.

Love surrounds me and indwells me, the supply is endless. I am loving and loveable. I give and receive love with joy

I am a wonderful mummy and enjoy my children. I provide a safe, happy, loving home. As a family we love unconditionally, we share and support each other in our fears, hopes & dreams

My family & I are happy, healthy & strong. We enjoy choosing foods & thoughts that nourish and support us. We live consciously within the flow of universal energy

My imagination & energy are limitless. Everything I wish to create comes to fruitian.

I am happy to be me. I trust myself and my intuition. I am guided by my feelings as I continue to grow.
I am greatful for the time I have to do my daily yoga & meditiaion.


My work & family life are harmonious. I am thankful for the flow if opportunities that are leading me forward with my life purpose.

I am thankful for my wonderful and supportive friends. I am surrounded my people who love me unconditionally.
My heart & soul are open to all the wonders of Spirit

This year, so far, sooooo much easier than last year. I am finding a direction faster, finding things I want to put on the map.

So, Tracy, I wanted to ask - last year, my focus was on my house, my family, my kid - mostly my house. This year, though I haven't laid anything out yet, the focus is more on me, much more personal stuff. Any reason for that you know of?

Interesting Adina I'm feeling the same way

I didn't do a TM last year, but I have also found that my focus is mostly myself, particularly around learning new skills or knowledge. In fact, most are things that I will need to put a fair amount of time and energy into achieving (something I've lacked since DS was born). The only material things on mine are a new car (ours is starting to cost more to maintain that it is actually worth) and for our finances to be organised and accurately recorded.

Did the things you put last year manifest themselves? That's what I found for mine so my focus is different. For instance, I had a quote on mine about working hard for every dollar. And I did. So this year I'm going to have the money and work affirmations and images a little more flowy, so it's less of a struggle. And my friend affirmation came true (I have wonderful new friends) so my helpful people corner this year has some pictures of the Buddha since I want to continue my meditation practice.

Is anyone else not sleeping well in this new moon? I'm excited about TMing . . . but not THAT excited, so I don't attribute it to that. But I gotta tell you that when the new moon started Saturday night I woke up (East coast here) and could not get back to sleep for quite a while for all the energy I felt coursing through my body. My brain was not racing, but my body was. I couldn't settle because I had to move. I felt the same way last night. It made me wonder if this is the effect of the new moon.

Anyone else feeling that?
post #111 of 455
^^^ let's put it this way it is 6:30am and I still haven't gone to bed. Though it doesn't have anything to do with the TM I have a massive ear ache and can't sleep, just waiting for the drs office to open to get it checked out. I spent all night cleaning and decluttering since I couldn't sleep anyway. Rearranged the furniture, sorted baby clothes, then sorted books. I got lots done so I guess I have had lots of energy, I just wish my ear would stop hurting so I could get some sleep. The tylenol is not even touching the pain.

The plan for today is to see a dr, continue chosing things out of my mags, take a nap, then finish my TM before going to bed very early tonight.

I'm not either! The last couple of nights I've been so restless and unable to sleep...then I wake up really tired.

I had a wonderful treasure mapping experience though......I was energized to complete it and my desires just flowed out of me. I was satisfied with it and loved it when I finished.

Still.....sleep eludes me.

Not sleeping?

Yes, not sleeping much during the Aries New Moon is very typical. Aries is such a proactive, go-getter energy that there is a restlessness to it. And it can often does impact sleep. It just says, "what the heck are we waiting for?"

why this year more than last year? I think and if you have any inkling to read it... I think it has to do with some of the aspects the other planets are making to the Sun & Moon in Aries this year, (during the new moon). If some of you are inclined.. please go back to Page 1 and find the link I have for my article on Aries New Moon. This is not the same article on Treasure Map. Give it a read, I think you will find in informative.

Also, and I'm not a numerologer.. but 2008 equal a 1 year. 1 is new beginnings, that may be in the mix making this an extra energetic moon.

Why is my Map more about Me, this year than last year?

Again, I think this might be numerological. 2008 equals a 1 year. And I think some of us are feeling it more than others.. we need to take care of Number One. It is not wrong or right. It just is. And by the way, those who are not as focused on Number1..it does not mean you are wrong or right. It just is. I think some of us are being drawn for our own inner reasons that we might not know. Remember it is all good.

post #116 of 455
Thanks for sharing, Queen of Cups!

Tracy, I have seen some time quotes recently..I'll see if I can find them and maybe you can tailor one for your affirmation...

But here are some quotes I found...none really jump out at me, but..

Yep, I put mine right on my map. Ones about my job I put in my career section, abundance in the wealth section, love in the marriage one.. and so on. It really adds some definition and detail to it I think.

Yesterday I went and bought four magazines and some supplies then sat down that afternoon and got to working. I put on some Celtic music and lit some sage and incense while I worked. DW came in and said the room was so smoky, oops! I painted my board with paint colors that coordinated with the FS baguas. It looked so beautiful and i was so proud of it! Then I got to cutting out magazine images and words. I too was heavy on the words and not on the pics. I ended up going to my computer and printing out a LOT of images from there because I knew what images I wanted and I wasn't finding them in the magazines. I think for next year I'll just buy one or two mags and print the rest from the net.

One question: In the FS baguas where would home improvements go?

I haven't glued anything down yet because I wanted to make sure I had everything I wanted to add. I'm hoping to glue tonight and tomorrow. I have everything laid out on the board and I love looking at it!

Work has been a big issue for me. I hate my job but am needing to stay here for various reasons. I am planning on leaving at the end of the year (dec) provided I'm not pregnant (one of the reasons I'm having to stay here now, we're TTC and I need the benefits.) So I wasn't totally sure what to put there. I had a few good ideas and I'm starting to get a few more. Clarity is such a good thing.

Another thing that was interesting was that some of my sections were over flowing (I knew what I wanted in that part of my life) and some sections were almost bare (because I was either confused about that part of my life or I was content with the way it was.) Just a very interesting observation!

I need to add a few more affirmations but I have a good many now. I'm still coming up with things to add to it so I hope I'll be finished by tomorrow! I am having a great time with this and it's really made me look at all aspects of my life. I too have also had some restless sleep the past two nights.

Hi there!

Long time lurker, first time poster

So, last year I followed the thread, got excited, got magazines and due to feeling overwhelmed by my life and its total lack of space for me, I found myself discouraged and unable to do the map.

The good news is that I took this event very seriously, and I changed my life to include me and make abundant space for myself. So, in an unexpected way, treasure mapping had a positive effect on my life last year.

This year nothing is stopping me. I've been preparing and took the day off yesterday to allow a lot of space for TMing. I'm a SAHM, so DP took the kids away for 12 magnificent hours! I had a beautiful day and finished my map...I thought...It really felt right to me. Many of the images and words I was drawn to surprised me. It is far more vague than I expected with almost no attention to acquiring physical objects, but what it says to me is very clear. Am I making any sense???

So, this morning I'm feeling drawn to clarify my map. At first I was resistant to the idea, feeling like I should leave it be. But, now I think since we're still in the new moon phase of things, I should honor my creative instincts. So, what I'm feeling drawn to do is to create a separate treasure map to be hung next to my completed one. Just with my affirmations in the bagua formation.

Yesterday's map is free, flowing and speaks to my heart. Then there's a part of me that wants to get specific, but I don't want that specific rigid feeling on the map. It feels like with this method, I can sit and dream looking at one map, and then the times I want more direct clarity in my vision, I can meditate on the affirmations. Clear as mud?

So, IDK. What do you all think? I love any input about if there's a reason not to do it this way.


Thank you all for sharing your process. It has been a great learning experience for me. Thanks to Tracy for sharing your wisdom so generously.

Sorry this is so wordy. I'm a pretty wordy gal. Happy mapping!

How about
I am patient and relaxed. I move effortlessly through my days, accomplishing all that is necessary.

??? I'll think about it a bit more...
