You know what, I'm not going to wait, I'm going to use color as it suits me and not worry so much.

Gotta be a bit more Aries about it!

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50

Ugh... I finally finished mine this morning. I so wanted this to be a positive project, but it definitely took a lot of effort to get it finished.

I had planned to start it Wenesday morning, but my sister unexpectedly passed on. (She had lifelong medical problems, and even though we knew it would happen any time it was still a sad shock...) Her passing was actually very gentle and peaceful because she left her body RIGHT at the new moon (3:15am MST), and according to my intuitive my sister was very excited and happy to go to her new home, and she is absolutely glowing right now, which makes me feel good. My husband said that maybe in a way she died for my family so 2006 will be a good year for all of us.

Then I had planned to get my map made yesterday- I got all the cutting done and I was laying it out to be glued when my son fell off the trampoline and gashed his head open, with blood all over the place, so I rushed him to the ER... He's OK, we actually left the ER after waiting for 2+ hours and I just cleaned him up and applied some butterfly strips. He was back on the trampoline today... :

So I finally start gluing all my piece down today and I ran out of glue!!! I was so determined to get it done that I just used clear packing tape, so my map is now sort of "laminated". The taping ended up moving some of my stuff around, but I was glad to read that Tracy said creativity usually comes from messiness, so that helped. I thought it would be hard cutting out enough to fill my two pages, but I ended up adding a page, and I still had pictures and words left over that didn't make it to the map for lack of space!

Mine is made form three pieces of orange contruction paper taped together, then divided into the nine sections. I have a few pictures, but mostly my map is full of positive words and phrases, and affirmations for what I want in my life. I hope I did it "right". As long as it's mine I think it'll work. I am very happy to have it done and hanging in my bedroom. I already feel some positive energy flowing...

Good luck everyone... 2006 will be stellar.

A funny thing happened when I was making my map last night.
I had cut out a lot of words and images and had organised them around the board. I asked my husband to come over and look at it and he read a statement I put on it that said " is it possible" it is funny because for some reason in my mind I had read it as " IT IS POSSIBLE" so I cut out the two words and switched them!!!

Thank you all so much for your honesty and creative inspiration!!
this is my third year making a map and I am a total believer in creating my dreams. This is a great way to really focus for me!

Decembersun,
wow. what a positive transition your sister made. Although, it was expected I send you and your family a huge cyber prayer from the edge of the continent. I bet your sister makes sure your Map takes off!!!

I have NEVER done this before...but I took my map to the frame shope today. I can't believe I framed it so permanently... I guess I really dug my affirmations...

beemama,

I just found my louise hay book and looked up Pituitary Gland issues..

here's what Louise says:

Pituitary Gland represents the control center.
the affirmation is:

"my mind and body are in perfect balance. I control my thoughts."

I thought that was so interesting considering how important our thoughts are when we make our maps....

I'm really stuck on my money/financial corner of my map. I'm happy with the rest of it, but that area is currently just a big blank. I want to put affirmations on it, but I'm not sure which one (or maybe multiple ones) and what kind of visual I want.

jenoline, last year I used the words "debt-free" on my map. Dh had the same phrase on his. I know you are not supposed to refer to the lack (ei debt) but it worked for us and we are debt-free as of last month.

edited to add- I didn't know until after my map was done that the phrase was less than ideal. Maybe the intent is the important thing?

Being right is not always fair, but being fair is always right

Jim Carrey wrote himself a million dollar check and put it in his wallet. He post dated it (I don't remember exactly how far out) and sure enough, when that date came he could have cashed that check.

Perhaps write yourself a check instead of pasting real money?

Tracy - I don't have any of the Louise Hay books (although I think I'm gonna get some!) and I was wondering if you had any online resources for affirmations. I LOVE the way you're phrasing things!

Thanks!

Ooh, what a neat idea! I may do that one. Can't lay my hands on any cash right now and somehow haven't found any pics of any yet.

this is a good area for affirmation inspirations...

click on the days of March and you can read their take...then word it the way you want...but the handle of it is very intentful and empowering.

thank you! I'm 6 hours ahead of EST, but it's still going to be a race against the clock. Now, can i ask about the "angels/spirituality" space? I'm not sure I understand what this is for. Do i write in what ways i want to help others, or how i am seeking help? How specific should it be?

I'm curious about this too. I'm trying to get it all done in time, but it's really hard, I'm still feeling opposition every step of the way. I'm determined though!

Oh, and what if there is something that seems to fit in more than one area... for example, I've always struggled with trust and jealousy. I'd like to add an affirmation like "I no longer feel silly jealousy", but would that be in relationships (since it effect my marriage) or self knowledge? I was thinking of writing it in both colors (blue and pink), or would that be a bad idea?

I made my treasure map this afternoon with my daughter.

Our maps were so different from one another, both wonderful!!!

She surrounded hers with echinicea and angels to symbolize protection and health.

I made mine framed with georgous high mountains like the ones surrounding Vancouver. I have cherry blossoms in the foreground and our family playing in the water. I want to have fun with my family this year and have fun wonderful memories. My son, Jonathan, is going into his seniro year and this may be our last summer spent with him as a kid.

I also have a picture of me with the lightbulb going off in my head with "understands Chemistry in gold lettering. I also have pre-med and a GPA of 3.8. I also have a representation of our bathroom *finished*....actually finished.

I am silly-satisfied that I've completed my painting. Jessica loved it, and both of us were talking about with our friends, so we may have more people next year.

I made mine this morning- having this huge fundraising event on Sunday for the nonprofit business I am trying to start and although I had no time- this was just so important.

I love my map! I loved making it. I love it. I know that my energy is shifting already and it will really manifest in abundance on Sunday.

Thanks so much Tracy for taking such good care of us all.

I just finished mine and I love it!! It was so peaceful while I was working on it..the kids were sleeping and there was no loud noises. Towards the end, it started raining. It was a better experience for me this year.

There is one thing that I am having a dilemma about. I found a phrase in a magazine "Attain harmony of mind, body, and spirit" and put it in the Spirituality section. Well, now I am thinking that the only way to truly attain that is to be dead. I do not want to write myself a death certificate!! Am I just being silly? It does sound silly when I read this, but in the back of my mind, I am a little worried....

Great idea! :

I did end up writing myself a post dated check - not a million, though, I'm dreaming but not insane, lol - and taped that on top of the big four-leaf clover I pasted down. My collage is definitely a collage, but I had so much fun making it, like zoning out; I must have sat there and clipped and glued for 2 hours straight.

I just printed out a piggybank from the clip art and am going to color that piggy purple and put it in the little empty spot in that corner!
