post #61 of 455

About affirmations...

Mine are very very short:
"Happy", "Everlasting love", "Joy", "Love".

By the way... mine is almost done. Just looking it over, and adding a few details here and there. Feels soooo good when I look at it.

Whoa, this thread is flying! I went out and got my magazines and supplies today. Planning on spending the rest of the afternoon, and maybe evening working on my map. We also just dropped a ton of stuff off to goodwill. I feel so great today, very open and ready to get started! Happy mapping and new moon everyone!

Hi! This is so much fun! I've never done a TM before. I will be starting mine with my children this afternoon. I've really gotten far with the decluttering, it's actually taken me two years to finally see some results but our home is usually tidy now and there's more space everywhere (so more space for happy feelings and everything else that awaits us in the year to come).

We will each have a large posterboard to work on. I will start working on mine while the kids draw or cut and glue pictures on theirs. That probably won't last long so I'll finish mine up in the evening or with them again tomorrow.

This is so exciting! I have a lot of faith in the results because I can already see them coming, just visualizing them!!!!

my eldest DD is busy cutting away with reckless abandon too! i'm being drawn much more to words than images- but i'm a verbal gal, so this doesn't really suprise me..... back to it!

Can you have too many affirmations?

Last year I had several in each area, quotes I loved and affirmations. Maybe I need to be a bit more specific...
post #66 of 455
The past 2 years I've done some decluttering beforehand & had lots of movement in my maps... this time I decided to dig really deep into my STUFF and stirred up a bunch of work. Dh took the next week off for this, our 5 year anniversary and the 10 year anniversary of a life changing accident, as well as just a big regrouping.

I think I've decided to get our living space back to neutral & leave another area of our house in chaos, to be reassembled at leisure (the good stuff is there, anyway ) so we can enjoy this time & look into ourselves for this vision session!

I can totally see why you tell us to wait. Oh, how things have shifted in my head since last night, the money issues I was concerned about aren't the same to me- I feel like I want to work more on living alongsided the whole consumer economy... so sustainability is priceless to me! I want to really focus on that.. but also have the funding to learn & grow. Hmmmm.

annakiss~ thank you so much for posting your affirmations! it helped to see how you've worded them.... last year I did more 2-3 word phrases & got away from affirmations. this time i want to be more descript.

Tracy~ Thank you for all you do to get this out there!!!:

I'm on a break, letting things settle (and my printer here at home is out of ink to print my affirmations )

It's interesting how different my map is from last year. So much of last year's has come into being that I feel like I just need to gently encourage it to continue on the same path, rather than having to start a new path.

These are my affirmations (subject to change, and 1 or 2 borrowed from annakiss.)

I love that I clean my kitchen every night before bed and that it greets me shining in the mornings.

I am so happy that I have a regular and growing mediation and yoga practice.

I have a beautiful garden that brings me joy.

My home is a haven – peaceful and filled with abundance and love.

My heart is open to love, and is safe and happy.

I love my strong and fit body. I feed it healthy food and move it often.

Money comes easily and plentifully to me.

My work is profitable, sustainable and grows with ease. Working brings me pleasure and I am organized and effective. My business grows the perfect way it is meant to. I have all the support I need to make my business everything I want.

I am thankful that I have my wonderful friends to support and encourage me.

Everything I want and need I have and am. I move through life peacefully and meet challenges with ease and grace. I am prepared for the future and well supplied for the present.

Subbing. I am doing this for the first time. Going to keep it low key and focus on my relationship with my husband and making it better.
post #69 of 455
i am in such a funk....well less so than an hour or so ago but still. I got up had a good breakfast, actually showered and went to buy supplies.

i think thats where it started, i spent more than i should have on magazines. i'm going to take some of them back tommorrow ( i hope that doesn't mess things up for me). I had a hard time finding magazines that spoke to me or maybe i just had a hard time honoring my own hearing I don't know. i'm going to the grocery store later and will check out the selection there.

but then i went to the kingdome hall for the meeting (church for jehovah's witnesses) and the kids just aggravated me sooooo much. i actually ended up leaving early when i had hoped to have a nice spiritual experience/refreshment before mapping. full disclosure - this being astrological in nature, they wouldn't approve of me doing it, maybe that had something to do with it.

the funk will clear i know but had to post and get that OUT, yk.

???

wondering if anyone is organizing using a system other than the feng-sui baugas?

part of my problem is feeling lost as to applying them. so i'm kinda tooling about the internet looking for other ideas....thought about the 12 houses of astrology, looked at something called lifeways http://www.resourcesforlife.com/map

love to hear input.....

Wow! Thank you! My sister is visiting so that we can tm together and I have already subjected her to two laments about how I am trying to figure out how to make a circular map. Lately I've been thinking a lot about the cycles of the seasons/year and the rhythm of our days and circles have really been speaking to me. I found a circular calendar that I'm going to reproduce as an art project for our dining room and I've been working on a similar idea for a calendar for my son instead of the typical square. This looks like just what I was trying to envision for my treasure map.

dont put so much stress on you not everyone has to agree or be the same as you spiritual. I let go of guilt and what others apply etc to the universe. Spirituality is different for each of us, but dont get caught up in what others approve of or not. Its not a bad thing having a vision board and manifest what you want, no matter what fear based theology we have been raised in or live in now. hope i dont offend but this is for the growth of us so have fun
Blessings

This was interesting and seemed to be so true for me today, not in the entirety of the horoscope but this section in general

You may be driven to use your many assets and skills to improve the lives of others today. Helpful feelings could inspire you to actively seek opportunities to engage in charitable pursuits. Because you’re open to lending a hand and giving others assistance in whatever manner is needed

My skills and assets reflect heavily in the knitting craft area. A new friend came over today and wanted to make mittens for one of her pg friends. I worked with her for about an hour designing a lacey pattern and teaching her how to knit in the round on double point needles. Not an easy feat for a new knitter. After I had taught her I realized I really wanted to take this pattern and turn it into a cool summer sock pattern , knit the socks and sell them to benefit one of my favorite groups. Not charitable in like a true charity but would like to help out my favorite group as well as ravelry. Just very interesting how that all transpired today and then I read that.

I need to work on my affirmations. I'm not very eloquent in my writings so I know I'll post them here to see if they need any work on them. It is very difficult to not put in those negative words for something you want to be positive

no offense taken...

its really ok with me that "they" wouldn't approve. i approve, i'm not in conflict w/ my own beliefs just w/ "official" beliefs/practices but thats ok.

i was just in a funk about my plans not working out for a nice meeting and coming home feeling all refreshed and rejuvenated and spiritually ffilled up ....

i am feeling better though

going to stop mdc-ing and start mapping again.

Is it bad that I have not done any decluttering? Well not tru I cleared out my garage 3 weeks ago but it's a total pit again. We have had such ick weather that it's hard to toss open the garage and clear it out. I have several closets and rooms that need a cleansing so bad. How we have acquired so much stuff is beyond me.

Ok for things I want in my life

I want to be happy (I am usually but who couldn't stand to be more happy), healthy, fit and toned, to be full of life and energy and laughter.

To be accepted and appreciated for who I am and what I give/do.

I want money to be easy and debt to be gone so we can begin doing the upgrades in our home we want and to live without the constant worry/stress over paying bills. It seems as soon as we get our heads above water and feeling comfortable something happens that sinks us way back down again.

I am beginning my very first garden, and all from seeds. I want them to grow in abundance and provide most of our food for us.

I want my small time test knitting work to grow and support our family

I want a home full of love, peace and more connectedness, that is clean and cozy (can I ask for children that listen and don't scream and talk nasty? )

I want to be a better mother, more patient and understanding, gentler in tone and touch.

I want to communicate better with my spouse. we have such a wonderful relationship and still act like we are in the honeymoon phase but we both have a very hard time just talking to each other when something is wrong. Maybe fear of upsetting the other? It's so hard when he is gone so much that I want the times he is home to be full of joy and peace and love, not me griping about stupid things.

I want beautiful healthy teeth/gums for myself and my children (ok my spouse too but he gets his dental work for free)

I want to be able to sleep at night and wake up early in the morning well rested and not cranky. I have horrible insomnia and its really effecting my day to day living.

I think that is all....I feel like I am asking for a lot.

Thanks for the affirmation ideas, Annakiss!

Last year the map turned out nice - but nothing came of it. Last week most everything on last year's map could have come true- it came up really fast and also fell through fast.

I tried to allow lots of leeway last year and maybe that was too vague. It's the first year nothing manifested. So anyway, I tried to be really specific with affirmations this year.

Love to everyone mapping

don't forget to put those things in the present tense when you make your map!
