post #24 of 455
Thanks Tracy :

Feeling the energy here It snowed this morning and noe the sun is shining. I have all my mags (treated myself to 5 as I used some old last year and really felt the need for NEW energy this year). Just cleansed the room I am TMing in, I had wanted to do the whole house but DH was leter leaving out with the kids than I had hoped!

Off to paint my board and cut out some more images.

You know, I put pictures of models with bodies similar to what I want to look like and words like "slim" and "exercising" on my map last year. Along the lines of what they recommends in The Secret - if you think/focus on "loosing weight" you keep attracting the need to loose weight. So, I put the things I definitely wanted to attract! (I think I weight almost exactly the same as I did last year, which means I've maintained the weight loss after DD was born, which is what I wanted to do - I had a few ups and downs this year, but ended at the same place.)

I started to make a map last night... but I felt no desire to buy any magazines at all, and even looking for pictures online felt kind of 'meh.' I started typing instead, but I know I'll need to write this year, and I have a feeling it will all be words-- no images feel right at all. It's kind of odd...

I know I will not have a real opportunity to work on my TM until tomorrow. I'm feeling a bit anxious about it but I'm trying hard to just enjoy the now, put myself in a place of joy and know I can work on it tomorrow.

Happy mapping to you all!

Working on my treasure map!! It's my third year mapping. Last year so much of it manifested, even some really big things that looked impossible!

Thanks for all the info. Tracy!

So out of curiosity, I decided to read the 2004 thread-- the one year I actually managed to make a map, and it waas fairly successful as I recall. There's a whole side-track about getting rid of "low self-esteem items" which are limiting to us... I suppose they have to do with deserving what we want: If I don't deserve, say, a new pair of shoes even though my old ones are falling apart, how can I possibly deserve Abundance or Peace? It made me realize what's missing, what I need to do to break the block, but I find it so difficult...

My low self-esteem "item" is my marriage. : Rather, the last vestiges of it, those being Mike. Ugh, I feel ridiculous even admitting that... and absolutely *exposed*. It's not a popular sentiment on MDC, there's a lot of negativity surrounding such ideas (perhaps I'm not the only one with self-esteem issues related to my primary adult relationship). I guess I'll spare myself some criticism and not go into detail here, but that's a really hard thing to completely disconnect... or even to admit that I *need* to disconnect.

oh, momma. huge hugs. sounds similar to something i realized last year about the "friends" in my life. different from a dh, i realize, but that was itself so challenging for me, i can only begin to imagine. you can do it, though! you DO deserve it.

Weight Loss

I wanted to share something with you guys on Treasure Map New Moon. I actually experienced this on Friday but I didn't want to share it with you until New Moon.


On Friday night I watched an episode of "I CAN MAKE YOU THIN" with Paul McKenna. It is on TLC.

I actually had seen ads for the show and was kind of intriqued but never could find it since my tv watching is sporadic. Anyway, on the show I watched near the end of it, he showed everyone in the audience and at Home to break a craving. And on a lark I tried it.

And I have to tell you---- It worked. I used Tortilla Chips. One of my cravings that I welcomed ditching. The next day I was at lunch with my husband and they had chips there.. I had NONE. Not even a hint of a desire.

You guys... check out his show. Here's the link.

http://tlc.discovery.com/tv/make-you...-you-thin.html

Tivo it. It was episode 3 that got rid of the craving.

Oh, Crunchyconmomma..... I saw that you too tried it. How is it going?

Well I never did finsh cleaning and decluttering last night, my house is still a sty and I get to finish it today since I have people coming over tomorrow. Why oh why did I decide to rearrange furniture while I cleaned/decluttered.

ANyway I am off to go buy magazines and a coffee then I am going to clean but take frequent breaks to flip through them. The kids also want to create a treasure map of their own so we will be taking time to work together on them later when the little ones are sleeping.

After reading Jenlove's post I went to my facebook page to see my tarot card and horoscope. My tarot was Temperance and it said Temperance Like the Justice card, Temperance represents balance and harmony in your life. It signifies the need to find common ground in current situations and to bring opposing sides together. It is time to find a happy median between what you want in life and what you really need. By avoiding confrontation, you can give yourself the opportunity to thrive in a healthy environment free of negative influences I thought that was neat and will actually take the time to think about it as I come up with my TM

My Horoscope said Continue to think for yourself, even in the most dire situations. The strength of your will pulls new opportunities towards you. They may not fall right into your lap, but they are within reach. Although it may seem like you are getting a raw deal, someone is actually doing you a favor. Now this one doesn't look so hot but can be turned around if I focus on the part where it says pull opportunities towards you.

Oh and I found the house I absolutely want on mls last night, it is on the other side of the country but I love it. Gonna print it off to add to my TM

Eilonwy,

During New Moon I would highly recommend you put the emphasis on YOUR life and all the things that would reflect EILONWY's high self esteem. Is it new furniture? Is it a new house? Is it a new body? Is it expanded friendships with great caring people? Is it a fuller bank account? Is it healthy friction free relationships. Is it good health?

And yes, it is very possible your relationship is lacking and not great. But honestly, I think it is important to see yourself reflecting higher esteem. I would not get too focused on the lack.. which could include DH. Also put something whether it is images or affirmations about healthy marriage.

Let's see what happens with your marriage after you spend some time with a higher self esteemed Eilonwy. You may be surprised.

Affirmations

I know many of you know the difference betweeen affirmations that are in the future and affirmations that are now.


"I will be thin."

see that is in the future. Versus...


"I love my healthy thin body."

That is NOW.


Go for now.


here's a nice link to last year's thread where Fek&Fuz did some nice affirmations... just to give you a taste..
