I am enjoying everyone's maps so much!!! Mine is almost done. I thought I had finished it, but when I looked at the final product I realized it was missing a sense of fearlessness that I really want to embody. So I was going to find a way to write on the black background in different parts of the map, "Fearless!" Then I started worrying that I shouldn't use a word that has an implied negative. OTOH, words like "courageous" and "brave" aren't expressing what I mean. I get courageousness...acting with courage in spite of fear. What I want to express is the lack of fear. Does anyone understand what I'm trying to say? Any ideas about a word that will express this? TIA!

Boldness? Being bold?
post #204 of 455
Thanks, Queen of Cups. After I posted I went to thesaurus.com and found "bodacious."

1.thorough; blatant; unmistakable.
2.remarkable; outstanding.
3.audacious; bold or brazen.

I think that says it pretty well. Not as well as fearless, but that's okay.

Amazing feeling of clarity...

I have finished the map (I'll post it later if I can).

I have no idea how I will get to many of the things on my map, but it feels so good just to look at things I have outlined for myself, I really begin to think impossible is possible somehow.

I'm picturing some of the images even as I'm driving, or cooking, etc. I've always known what I wanted, but the map helps you zoom in on various goals on different days. Anyone else knows what I'm talking about? This is my first year, and I'm hooked... it's been only a couple of days, but I still can't get over how good it feels just to have this map in front of me.

P.S. Where are you positioning your map?

P.P.S. I have a secret... I placed a picture of The Kiss by Klimt, and drew a ring on a ring-finger of the woman in the pictures. You can't really see it unless you know that it's there.... Let's see if it will work

oh, what a lovely image (and nice going with the stealth ring.) I have a picture of a "romantic" sculpture on mine:

last year I had pictures of couples, but this year I didn't want photos of other people.

I know what you are talking about! nothing with photos of other people looked right to me, except for one with The Gilmore Girls (for me and DSD ). I think it might be because we actually watched the show together. Other than that, I only liked drawings, sculptures, or paintings. I've always like "The Kiss", and I rememebered about it just in time for the treasure map.

Well almost done! This has been a very interesting process. I wrote previously that I felt the need to have separate maps not one big one and water coloured some backgrounds. But I felt blocked, I had a stack of magazines etc but not a single image or word spoke to me. I was feeling defeated for sure. Today I decided to get out of the house, met with a friend at the dollar store to buy some more glue etc and chat a bit. Then went to a scrapbook store and felt drawn to certain papers. I decided to listen to that voice to buy them even though I have a ton of scrapbook paper at home. WHen I got home I knew these papers were for my TM, so I gave the kids my water coloured papers and they made me some lovely pictures to hang up and the creative juices jsut started flowing. I have completely finished 4 parts, and cut the peices out for the rest. I have felt very very drawn to words more than images, though the images I have are great. I had a hard time with affirmations but when I read the ones people listed on here they spoke to me so I stole them *sheepish* Just taking a break to eat and I will be finished shortly after. The kids think they are pretty neat so they will likely do one when I am done with my magazines. This has been such a learning experience. ANd the fact that I had not one but 2 false starts and had to switch papers was different for me.

Oriole, I have felt drawn to attach my map(s) to my ceiling above my bed of all places. On a positive it will be the first thing I see when I wake up and before I go to sleep. Also my bed is a hub in the house so to speak, I have a family bed so it is a place where we reconnect etc so it could be why I feel energy for that space.

Hey question for you ladies out there, do you ever take you map with you when you travel? I have a trip I leave for on Thursday so I am curious with the energy of it being so very brand new I feel like I should take it with me

I had a miscarriage on the night of the new moon. One of the things I want to put on my treasure map is a healthy, 9-month-long pregnancy with a healthy baby.

Number 1, I am struggling with my state of mind surrounding the miscarriage. It seems to be all I can think about and that was reflected in what I cut out of my magazines today. Should I wait?
Number 2, how do I word my affirmation that I will become pregnant again soon and that my baby will be born healthy?

Ah, DiD... Hugs to you. You be gentle with yourself. But yes, you can make your map now. If you can't finish it by today.. go ahead and take the time to get it the way you want.

And yes give yourself a 9 month pregnancy and a big ol fat chubby baby. Shit, you'll probably get pregnant in July and give birth on Next year's Aries Treasure Map New Moon! And by the way---if you have an Aries kid--get out of the way. They are firecrackers!

hugs to you. I wish I could send you a cup of cyber tea and a cozy cyber blanket.


hugs

I thought we had until the 9th? I am planning on finishing mine up tomorrow (the 9th). Mine is about half way done. I am having difficulty finding pictures for everything so I will have only writing in some areas. I did find a great way to attach pictures - glue dots. Much less messy than glue sticks.

Dreams in Digital big hugs to you, miscarriages are never easy to cope with. I had one 2 years ago on my birthday and took it very hard. Amazingly though I found out 2 days before what should have been that baby's due-date that I was pregnant again and now have my baby girl. I am sure you will end up with a healthy 9 month pregnancy soon. as for the affirmation wording maybe Something simple like "I am blessed to be holding my new child after a happy and healthy pregnancy"

It is finally finished! Ignore the glare from the flash I have it in page protectors. In the end I ended up making 7 separate 12 x 12 maps. The one outlining change of the inner self was mostly words with only 1 image, were as the ones for family and home were mostly images with few words. I fell in love with the paper I used for money/work it felt so powerful. Anyway here it is, my first treasure map Treasure map 2008

I'm going to have to give myself more time. I opened my mind and heart and I'm about half-done and have hit a bit of a block so I'm going to step back because I don't want to force things. I am very happy with the way it's turning out and I am feeling a lot of energy coming from it - I don't want to wreck that trying to stick to a deadline.

I have really loved looking at everyone's maps. They are so beautiful and individual. I've really enjoyed making mine, too. Here it is all finished. :-) http://www.flickr.com/photos/1465052...805661/detail/

I love the butterfly image you used for the last section you pictured. I also thought it was funny that I used that exact same imagination clip you used.
post #220 of 455
