Official Treasure Map --2008 - Page 12

post #221 of 455
Okay, all done!

My very first treasure map. Sorry for the super bad quality. My camera broke so that was taken with my phone. I know almost nothing is readable, but you can see the general overview of it!

Don't know what the deal was with tonight, but I focused and got it DONE!

It's a lot different than what I had in my mind when I started. I kept removing things and changing things. It's very simple now. I like it.

Just as I was finishing gluing the last bits on, the Bon Jovi song "It's My Life" came on the radio. As I stood up to look at the finished product, the last line of the song "It's... my... life" played. Seemed like fate or something.

Hmm, other thoughts...

Oh! It turned out more religious than I expected. Religion has been a big part of my life in the past, but it hasn't been lately. I guess it will be in the future again!

And I had a big stack of magazines, maybe 8 or 9? I didn't go through them all, but when I was finished, I had the urge to throw them away. So, down to the trash they went. I didn't just throw them in the trash can, I took the magazines and my bag of paper scrappings to the trash chute in the building. Don't know why, but I felt like I needed to get rid of those magazines.

Much love and healing going out to you DiD

Perhaps pictures of a 38-42week belly and then a happy healthy baby, mothering mag would be a great place for those images.

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?

Done! This was much different than I expected. Don't really know how to explain it but I did manage to get some images that I have no clue what they represent, (like the red kite in my fame/reputation corner). And there were some images I really wanted but just couldn't find. Very specifically I wanted to find healing hands, not hands that heal but hands that have been healed. My affirmation vaguely covered it. So we'll see what happens.

My first treasure map

I sure feel like I'll sleep good tonight. I hope so at least!

Whoohoo! I totally did this treasure map thing UP! I found so many ideas (and things!) to nourish and attract--so much fun, so empowering!

Thanks all.

YES!!! It is not your job to figure out the how/when/etc, leave that to the Universe. Your job is to focus on what you want and WHY you want it. Daydream as much as possible about what you want, and leave the rest to the Universe.

Love and peace to you, Mama. "I have a beautiful, healthy baby born of a joyous, healthy pregnancy." Or some such.

Somehow I didn't print about 5 or so of my favorite pictures and I'm trying to decide if i can still make it what I want. It's flowing so nicely but got interrupted by my toddler waking.

Ok, so here goes, my first ever Treasure Map. The spiral evolved to more of a sun shape and in fact it didn't feel complete till I drew in lines like a sun. I started with myself at the top and worked clockwise to my relationships with my Husband, my God, my children, my friends, knowledge, creativity, money, abundance/gardening and my home.

I finished mine last night. I will try to get a picture up later.
I ended up following the bagua system, and I am glad I did. I didn't have pictures for every section, some were just affirmations.

DiD: I am so sorry for your loss, and I hope you found someway to include another baby on your map. I was hoping for something similar (healthy pregnancy, healthy birth, healthy baby) and put lots of pregnant women pictures on and some words that exemplified what I wanted. Good luck.

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 like the separate maps.

I slept well when mine was finally done. I like the colors and images on yours, and how you have the girl in red on the bottom watering a tree and then the red kite at the top flying away.

I love how some of the maps radiate outwards. I almost chose a similar photo to the one in the center of yours, the hands holding the plant. I had the deposit slip on mine last year - it really worked!
post #231 of 455
It's really cool to see all the ways that we've used the same images.

ETA: I also borrowed some affirmations without permission. Now I don't remember who I borrowed from. I hope that's okay. I appreciate the way with words so many of you have. Thank you so much for sharing ideas here!

yes for me too! I took my youngest to the mall to play while the older was with friends at the fair. So she kept going up to a particular mother, seriously like yasmeen was adopting her lol. Sitting w/ her on the bench, carrying on a conversation etc. So I finally went and started talking to her myself. We totally clicked, she is alot like w/ with energy , reiki, alt healing, is a masseuse and so many more things too!. on my tm I have friends, genuine etc alot of the vibes I have on there really came full circle. It was like a aha moment. Will def be contacting her again. thanks universe!

Out of all the pictures I felt most drawn to the hands with the plant and putting it in the center was the only thing I knew I would do. I had a picture of money but it was one of the ones that for some reason I missed when I went to the library to print them out. So in trying to think of a substitute for money I recalled seeing one of this years maps with a deposit slip on it and decided that would work. I'm very happy with the sun design and the overall theme of new beginnings and growth.

I posted my affirmations earlier in this thread and I'm more than happy for anyone who feels inspired by them to use them

Did anyone else add the cheque written for the amount Paid in Full to yourself and signed The Law Of Abundance? I remember last year talk of this and meant to mention it earlier

Yay, I did it!!!!!!!

My dh took the youngest and disappeared for the morning, so I ignored housework, getting dressed, and everything else and I did it. I finished my first Treasure Map!!!!!!

Last year I cut out the pieces but never made the map, they lay in a baggie in my sewing basket all year.

Now I'm just waiting for the glue to dry and I'm going to hang it on the wall above my bed so that I can see it every morning, naptime, and evening!

Thank you all for your inspiration, enthusiasm, and energy!

I finished my first map! Blogged about it in my blog (crunchy link below) image is included. I had a blast doing this and really learned a lot from the preocess. I love my map and it's extremely personal. I'm very eager to see how much will come to life!

Burtsgirl- I almost used one of the same images you have! (girl from the back, jumping outside in the sun)

Question for wise manifesting mamas- So, I drew the "self/me" portion of my map using pencil. And I really like the sort of earthy feel the pencil has and the way it sort of fades into everything at the edges. However, the magazine images are all so bright and clear cut I almost feel like the "me" has faded into the background?

Would you suggest that I go over the image in ink to make it stand out more? I don't want to fade into the background of my own life so to speak, but I also don't want to lose the sense of earth/open/connected I get from the pencil. Ideas? Opinion?

Thanks!

(and so you don't have to scroll back a few pages, the map is here http://www.flickr.com/photos/wombatclay/2399350522/ )

You could try brown ink, that way you keep the earthy color and make it stand out at the same time.

Mine's done! My hubby even did one and he was really excited about it. I also got my boss into it and she and her family members made them this weekend. My map this year has a lot more words....only a few images. I also ended up writing a lot of my own affirmations onto the paper. I'll take some pics to share with y'all soon. I didn't do a single posterboard. I did a few construction paper pages. Each color represents something different to me.
Blue = health
Green = money
Brown = home
Red = relationships
Orange = attraction, happiness
I'm really psyched about it this year. Last year I ended up stuffing mine in a drawer and never looking at it. My husband didn't even know I did one until a few weeks ago. We started a lot of decluttering. We just moved and we have A LOT to go through still, but we've already given away dozens of bags and boxes of stuff. It feels so good to let go and get decluttered. I can definitely feel a positive energy change from it. I also did a lot of planting yesterday. :-)
Has anyone seen movement already? My car went in for inspection today so last night I wrote, "My car is strong and runs well." I didn't want them to find a bunch of things wrong with it. They just called a half hour ago and it passed inspection and only needed a few minor things that I already knew about. Woo-hoo!

The glare is kinda bad, sorry.

I really didn't have money so i just had 2 magazines, plus a readers digest that i hadn't looked at yet. I had to use materials i already had. I wanted to do this but i just didn't have any money. I almost wasn't going to do it, but i figured i should at least do my best.

I didn't follow any plan or outline, i just did what i felt. I love it, it was so fun. I tried to keep it mostly about me, not really much on there about my kids, because i kind of don't want to chose their path for them i guess. I really wanted to focus on myself, a lot of my life is my family, its the other parts i want/need to work on. Thanks for sharing everyone.
