I just wanted to update everyone who might be interested...

The next period for Treasure Map is April 8, 1:23 (Pacific Time)

For those who don't know... the treasure map is when you take a bunch of pictures, drawing, photos, colors.. and make a collage on a poster board. This is what you want in your life for the next year.

Astrologically it lines up with the Aries New Moon (Not the first day of spring). You have about 4 days to make the map. You don't start it before, it is made after the new aries moon begins.

this is a period where you allow yourself to dream, dream big, allow your self to want things.. write them down, put up a poem, put up a photo, put up that which sets up your ideal experiences for this new year.

here is the link to 2004.


http://www.mothering.com/discussions...light=treasure

and within that link you will find the link to our 2003 time.

My experience is listed in there but basically I made my first map and I met my husband within 60 days. Of course my life has never been the same since...

and yes there was a baby boy on later maps!

good luck!!!

This sounds great. I'm going to email the link to my friend, too.

Tracy - will you walk us through the process again like you did last year? I browsed through last year's thread, but it is loooong.

Tracy, thanks for posting this!!

I did my map last year following feng shui quadrants. It was a lot of fun, but i think I concentrated too much on making it even in each square and it came out a bit too cluttered..

anyway, I can't wait to do it again this year.

Got a question though.. I put last year's in a frame, could I put the new one in the same frame when it's done, over the old one? Or is that "bad" - since the frame & the other posterboard are 'old'? the 'pro' there is that I could keep last years, and have less clutter.

Thanks!!

sistermama,
naturally I will answer any questions.

but just so you know. I always got new magazines on new moon. Although some people don't want to buy new magazines, in that case I would suggest that you ask friends for old magazines but don't read them or open them until New Moon begins.
The point is that the energy shifts when New Moon begins. so, you will look at the magazines with 'new' eyes.

some people like to break up their maps into the feng shu quadrants. basically 9 areas of the board. Into the following:

123
456
789

1-money/abundance
2-fame, recognition
3-relationships
4-family
5-health
6-children/creativity
7-knowledge
8-work
9-angels/help spirituality.

that is if you are up for that kind of organization. But if you are not and don't feel it is your thang..that is totally fine.
Some people like to get friends together when they make their maps.
"Hey, who wants a picture of Tahiti?"
that can be fun.

and of course you can just do it alone in the privacy of your own home and spend some concentrated energy on what you want.

As I indicated in lastyear's thread, I don't make traditional maps any longer. I tend to write a long prayer affirmation on Aries new moon for what I want for the year.


the whole deal with these maps is that most of the moms here are so busy that they don't ever allow themselves time like this to dream, reach, explore for themselves.
that is the gift unto itself.


hugs

chichi,
What I would suggest is either putting the old map away in the closet. Or for the sake of clutter...cut out the sections of the old board and save for you.

I would not put the new map on the old map. but I think you can reuse the frame. However, if you want to paint the frame..that would probably infuse an additional new energy.

just my thoughts...

okay, so what it sounds like is it doesn't matter exactly what you so as long as you do it. so, i could say do nine little maps and put them in the corresponding area. or i could do a big and a little one for a specific area, or just throw the bagua out the window and wing it.


can people recommend magazines they like or do you think it is better for it to be an intuitive process the day of?

sounds good, wolfmama.

and I would follow your intuition on the day of new moon.

remember you don't have to do it that day...you have the first 4 days to do it. (or about 3.5 days..actually) so you can let your mind percolate for the first day if you wish...

Tracy - April 8, 1:23 is when we're supposed to start or finish the map?

Count me in!! I missed last year's and can't wait to do this year's.

Would it be bad to ask you to post aq pic of a Treasure Map? Just so I can get an idea of what to do? Totally understand if that would not be good.

i've been meaning to do a space clearing for the last six months. i was thinking how powerful it would be to do a one before the 8th.

i'm going to start a thread about it. i'm a novice, but i would love anyone else to join me.

Two questions, Aw, heck, make it three,

Is it ok to customize this to make it Christian, to bathe it in prayer?

Do we take pictures and post them up and show one another?

....and.....is it within parameters to *think* about what you're going to *make* within that 3.5 day period? Editing for clarity, I mean think beforehand

I can't believe I'm doing this.

Ohhh yeah! Here it is. Thanks Tracy - and I did get your very helpful pm.

Debra - Tracy is the expert but there are lots of mamas here doing it of different religious affiliations. I am Muslim - but I believe in communicating with God through a number of ways..... prayer, through "conversations" in my head throughout the day, etc.

The treasure map was another way for me to communicate, and I found it to be super important in terms of defining what I wanted for myself. It really helped me get clear about certain areas of my life. So as much as it was an excercise in spirituality it was a excersize in goal setting. Don't forget there is the spirituality/angels/ and helpful people quadrant so you could certainly put a pic of Christ there, maybe the name of your church, a favorite prayer.

I didn't post a pic last year but I can't remember if anyone else did. I hosted an awesome brunch of about 12 women. It was so fun - exactly what Tracy said "Hey anyone want a picture of Tahiti?" "A pic of a car". It was great hearing from everyone throughout the year too and seeing what manifested we did take pics and send them around.

Good luck!

I don't think anyone posted pictures of theirs. And once I got done with mine - it was pretty personal. I thought about posting pics of mine - but it felt wrong.

I am trying to figure out what I should do with mine from last year.....I think I may toss it. All of it. We are in a new city, and and new place. And the only thing on there were the baby pictures....and they didn't feel exactly right when I put them on there last year. So I think new ones are in order.

This sounds a lot like the dream book that I have kept for years! I like the idea of creating a new one in conjunction with the Aries new moon though. Give a bit more power to the process for me.

For those of you who have done this in the past what do you think works better, pictures cut out of mags etc, or hand drawn, written words and the like?

Oh and the time is Pacific time zone right? Just want to make sure.

Blessings,

Yes, you can totally customize it to christianity. and you can totally think about your map between now and then. the deal is that the energy will naturally shift on april 8 1:32pm (PT)...so even if you wake up at 6am on the 8th all gungho to get your magazines and pictures and quotes etc... you will probably see that when it comes to pasting them on the board and commiting to what you want after 1:32...well, someof the things you just knew you were going to put on your board just won't "fit". Some of it will and some of it won't. I know it having btdt.


Yes, this is in Pacific Time, you go ahead and put it in your own time zone. I figure everyone knows how far they are from PT.

I don't think any of us have posted pictures. But honestly, don't worry....you really can't do these wrong. follow your gut, heart and intuition.

honestly, it all is good. magazine pictures help with the visualization but again, it can be words...really whatever moves you.

Thanks so much for answering! I told DH about this and he is also very excited about the idea. We are going to have our boys help out with making their own too. What a great family project. Also a fun excuse to go to Powells to look for magazines!

I am very excited to map out what I want to create this year! Last year's map was great for me. My husband,mom and friend all made one as well! It is amazing to me how much came true for all of us!

Last year I put out the intention of having another baby, I am 34 weeks pregnant now ! so I want to put good birthing vibes on mine, I will write affirmations again and use photo's. I just wonder where I put the birthing stuff, in family? spatiality? and because I expect to give birth in May that leaves the rest of the year... I think I will say " I have a healthy and happy baby, that sleeps and eats very well" or something like that in family section.

I just want to say to anyone who is new to the maps this year to dream BIG! my friend put pictures of swimming with dolphins and did, she put a castle and went to Europe, my Mom got a new job that is awesome!

The power of intention is huge and we really can have an effect on what we attract to our lives!
happy mapping everyone!

What about long term dreams. I want to go into medicine but I need to do well in college next year....do I put pictures representing my long term dreams and or (and which is it?) the success in college that I need to attain those dreams.

yes. but of course I would encourage you to buy at least one magazine after new moon has started. Only because you will probably not consider that magazine before the moon but after it starts it might now seem appealing.

i think I would put it in the 'fame' section because it has to do with your Identity which is really what fame means. And I would put something in the Knowledge corner.
