Do you think sometimes things don't work out the way we *plan* because we were simply out of alignment...and if we discover a *reason* afterwards, it is merely seeing what we wanted to see in the situation (which was a justification as to why we ended up being happy without it).

Or....(I'm open to any other ideas and/or combinations!!!)

No specific situation, just a topic for discussion.
I think the first one is true for me. I think the universe knows what is really right and if we listen to our inner voice we know too. The waiting and listening is the hard part for me.

Hey GORGEOUS MAMAS!!!

I'm soooo not caught up on the thread so I apologize for missing important discussions.

Just wanted to let you Mamas know I'll be MIA for awhile -- with my CD recordings done, we're in production time, so it's editing, adding music, marketing, etc. My Angel Cards keep telling me to "Prioritize," and though this thread is one of my HIGHEST priorities, it's keeping me from doing other stuff. Soooo...I'll be reading as much as I can, but I'll be taking a couple days of from posting. I'LL MISS YOU ALL!!!!

Hmmmm...perhaps I can start sleeping 2 hours less so I can read in the middle of the night.... oops! Careful what you wish for!

Though, I'm sure I won't be able to resisit popping in sometime during Treasure Mapping!!!

I'm soooo excited!!! Man, I thought we were all a powerful force before, but wait until we all have our treasure maps in hand!!!!!! MAMAS, I wouldn't be surprised if we made history!!! (Or at least an appearance on the Oprah show with Terri! )

Tata for Now. you!!!

Oh it most definitely is!!! Especially if it's almost-raw, homemade chocolate. (The almost raw part comes from the fact that I don't like the taste of the raw butter we get - dh does but I don't - so I use Organic Valley cultured butter, Danish butter, or Kerrygold butter - unsalted. If I liked the raw butter, then it'd be really raw chocolate.) (1 cup grass-fed butter, 1/2 cup raw cream, 1/2 cup raw agave nectar, 1/2 cup raw cacao powder, a teaspoon vanilla extract and a dash of sea salt - mix it together [I actually use the blender], enjoy a bunch off the spoon, spread on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet, refridgerate until set, score into pieces with a knife, and freeze until hard ... or eat it all before you get to all those steps! OMG it is divine!)

I've started wondering if the "stream of well being" is made of chocolate. It comes from listening to the stuff on Flowdreaming, and then visiting a handmade chocolate store that had this huge vat of chocolate stiring it's self.

but everything has pros and cons  shrug.gif

Other times we just aren't aligned yet and so the thing passes us by. Later we see that we're happier without it, and now have that better thing, or that same thing in better timing. Is that justification or just 'truth'? Who cares what we call it. Same deal in the end, right?
Agreed. Sometimes as we grow what we want changes, so the thing we were asking for no longer appeal to us.

Sometimes we have a lot of resistance to something that we really want, so it takes awhile to recognize and work through the resistance. For me, the process of letting go of the resistance is important because it is letting go of my old baggage. It is an opportunity for personal growth.

I cannot explain the vibrational shift that too place! Seriously! It was not like buzzing, but more like I came into vibrational harmony with my surroundings and everything became twilight zone. The guy only charged me .50 for my drink and everyone I looked at smiled at me and you know it was one of those moments where everything was "right".

I have been thinking about this all day and I really think that I had vibrationally attacked her and then I made peace with her on a subconscious level. I really felt that she accepted my apology and then I was able to release the poison I had been holding because it felt so good to feel loved and forgiven. I also realized that what I was judging in her was something I struggle with internally so by putting her down I was attempting (in vain) to feel better about myself. So warped, but the learning experience was invaluable! I have been in a higher consciousness all day from it!
That is fantastic. I often find myself doing the same thing (much less since LOA!!), I will definitely use this technique!

That sounds like a WHOLE LOT OF WORK for a single gal like me... how can I manifest you sending me some? Oh, I can use my high vibration affirmations!! Sweet. You're in trouble, MLW!!

I got my magazines for Treasure Mapping... a tad early, I know, but I'm leaving them in the car til tomorrow night.

Also, if there's a Michael's near you, foam board is on sale for super cheap!! 87 cents down from $2.79!! The perfect board for a Map, I think.

Heehee.
Last night dh was telling me VERY matter-of-factly that we are going to be on Oprah soon. So, I'll be there!!

I can't WAIT to do my treasure map! I've been trying to keep my mind open and empty regarding that until tomorrow, but I think I'll be adding the Oprah appearance to mine, too

If I can manifest enough money for my kiddos to come, too, absolutely an extra pair of hands for them would help That's what's been holding me back~ I was only given enough money for myself and dh to go. And I can't leave my babies

I'll let you know when that money manifests~ wouldn't that be FUN?? My relatives live on the coast in what I hear is an absolutely gorgeous estate.

This really sweet couple came by to take a quick look at the condo. I told them straight up that I'm intending to get this house on Wednesday, and then we would be selling quickly. They asked if we could be out in June, and I said if they wanted to buy, we'd be out. I gave him our price and told him we're open for an offer. Um, wow! I feel so great about this. Seriously, these are the perfect buyers for us!!

I've been thinking a lot about this lately and I just don't know. When things don't work out for me I always look for the lesson and I just hope that as I am increasingly in tune with my true self the lessons become clearer sooner. I am curious what other people think. I can see the truth in both but the first one gives me more of a warm fuzzy, so I'll list thata way.

Oh, and I have to add something... They have a one month old baby girl, and while they were here they were looking at a picture on the wall of framed fabric showing mothers from around the world wearing babies. I asked them if they had a sling, and they don't. So I told her I'm going to give her one I have sitting in the closet. Anyway, the mama looked so pleased and I was so happy that she was happy, and that this little baby is going to get a ride in this sling.

Hmm ... let's manifest a way to ship butter/raw cream/cacao across the country without it spoiling ... and I can send some! It is so dang tastey (and really, if you have access to raw cream and some good butter, you can buy raw cacao on-line and it whips up in a jiffy. Does A Boy like chocolate? You could seduce him further with an offering! : : If we can figure out how to ship some to you that isn't cost prohibitive, I'd love to send some.

Thanks for the heads-up about Michael's. We are going to the Town Center tonight where there is both a Michael's and a Staples. Woo Hoo!!!

Yes, I highly recommend making some almost-raw chocolate tomorrow. And I will get regular mail out to you tomorrow (I can't believe it's taken me this long to send you snail mail too ), and hopefully get email to you too.

Anyone want to share what they are thinking of putting on their Treasure Maps? I am sure I could go through the lengthy TM threads, but haven't the time. :

Jumping in!

I'm very excited with the Treasure Map tomorrow!!!

For this week I want to manifest:

Being in the moment;

Smooth transitions as my oldest is leaving for UK on the 19 and will come back in May;

200-300$ or more for buying books and things at the Homeschooling Conventions that are coming soon;

A nice inspirational book to read;

Fun;

Good time and intimacy with DH (DD2 going to bed early ?)

This is sooooo awesome!

I just feel so much joy when I reflect back on carrying my kids in my sling. I often run into a clerk at the grocery store who says, "I can't believe how big your baby (he's 5 now) has grown. I still remember you carrying him around in the 'thing' all the time!!!":

I am almost 10 weeks. I'm due Nov 15th according to modern medicine. I think you're just a touch ahead of me, right?

Thanks everyone for all the hugs and sympathy. Unfortunately marajuana is definitely not something I would ever consider. There are many reasons but the #1 reason is that I am a recovering drug addict and I know for me marajuana is addictive and also a "gateway" drug. I was prescribed something by my MW after I called her for help but I haven't taken it. She said it's as safe as tylenol, but honestly I don't like taking tylenol even when not preg. Since I spent many years putting everything I could into my body I now have gone the other direction and I try to keep my body as clean as possible. I must say I have never felt better (aside from pregnancy puking).

I guess the best thing is that I know in my heart that this will be over soon and I will be able to look back and see that I gained something from the whole experience. That's one big thing I've learned here in this group. Now when things happend that are undesirable, I can always find something good that came out of them.

I'm just a week ahead of you, so we're pretty close. I think that I am taking the fatigue as a hint that I need to rest and take better care of myself. I'm bad about pushing past when I need rest etc, so I've been actually taking the naps when I feel like them (just don't come over, it's a mess! ) Sounds like you're hanging in ok, just remember that this part is usually over pretty soon. Can't wait for 2nd tri, it's always the easiest!

So I'm curious about the book you are reading.... which deck is it with?
The book is Stories of the Wild Spririt by Poppy Palin. I've only ever used Authurian based before, so this is very different for me. Very nature oriented, very 'inner self' and such. The artwork is really different and cool as well. Very colorful too. Thanks for the encouragement. I'm kinda surprised, my mom is who has been really pushing this for years, she loves getting readings from me, and now she seems totally, well apathetic, so I was surprised not to have her behind me more. She's got a lot going on right now though, so I'm trying to not take it personal. But I'm looking forward to spending more time with my cards and really getting to spend some inner time with them.

Dh got out of bed at 9:30 and asked me if I wanted to take a nap. I started to say I didn't have time, but then I decided I DID have enough time~ because I wanted there to be enough time. So I went to bed and the whole time I was falling asleep I said this to myself~ There is enough time to do everything I want to do today. There is no rush. It is easy. All is well.

I woke up at 11 and had my coffee (yup, I'm a coffee addict ), got dressed and went out to do my errands, taking along my two youngest. I got everything done and I swear everyone I saw was smiling and happy I got home and could not believe how early it still was! Now I am working on my papers and they are just flowing out (easy peasy), and dh is being so super helpful with the kids. Today is a great day Its almost like I altered time! That was actually the idea I had as I was falling asleep~ that I would slow time down for today so I could easily get everything done. It really feels like that happened! It makes sense really~ time is not actually linear, its something we made up, and it certainly fluctuates for all of us.

More about me~ me me me
I am so loving school. I almost feel like I'm cheating. I told my tutors I have been studying intensively for 8 years with my very good friend who is a homeopath, but they are still impressed Its OK to brag, right? I just it SO much.

OK, back to studying.
What an idea! I've been taking much needed naps, but never thought to approach it that way. Cool! Thanks for sharing!

Same here! We're mostly unschoolers, with a touch of the 'real' stuff just to keep my obsessive tendancies happy

I've been producing an abundant surplus ever since! :


ETA: So yeah, be careful what you wish for.
I did the opposite. Lil bug spit up like crazy from my over powerfull supply for months. then when it adjusted, he hated nursing cuz he was mad at the 'low' supply. Eventually weaned himself Next time, I'll keep my extra milk

Or

Do you think sometimes things don't work out the way we *plan* because we were simply out of alignment...and if we discover a *reason* afterwards, it is merely seeing what we wanted to see in the situation (which was a justification as to why we ended up being happy without it).

Or....(I'm open to any other ideas and/or combinations!!!)

No specific situation, just a topic for discussion.
I think that there is a reason. Either that we do or don't see, that doesn't matter. Some times it is something better, or something else important that we need to do/see/experience. Other times it is because someone else needed that at that moment, and there is something else lined up that is as good/better for you. There is always more that we don't know. I really feel that everything is interconnected in some way, like little threads of light connecting all of us and all our actions. Ok, typing while tired, I probably don't make much sense there

Koalamama, very cool on the house! When I first read it I was skimming too fast and thought you said "older couple". I don't know where I got that from but I envisioned a lovely, white haired, elderly couple holding hands and in love Then you said they had a tiny baby and I was all confused : Oh, and I PM'd you which you may regret if you don't have a spare hour to spend reading it Thanks for the offer

Kate - I'm very excited for you

Lots of unschoolers. We're unschoolers here too.

Tomorrow is the treasure map day? I wasn't inspired this year (definitely still got the clutter issue but suddenly it's sounding like a nice idea. If nothing else, the kids and I can have a nice time cutting things out of magazines. They love cutting

My dh is manifesting We started talking a few weeks back about him doing woodworking again and maybe selling some stuff on etsy and craft shows. He spent almost the entire weekend in the shop, sent away for craft fair information, perused etsy, and is about half way through making a bunch of stuff to sell. And most importantly - he's happy He loves woodworking but it's a "hobby" he put aside for years. We're both thinking it would be great if he could get the woodworking to be enough so he could quit his second job but neither of us can see it as being enough to quit his first job. Maybe we need to manifest in steps

I'm still not sure what I want to do. I have some ideas but they are all awhirl in my head. I have to have clarity (was that Assaraf or Ray? eh, whoever ). I need to pick one project and go for it. Or maybe I'm still narrowing. I don't know. I'm just excited and inspired seeing dh "just do it". Me - I'm one of those people who plan and plan and plan forever and have a hard time actually doing. Um, until now

That's what we do! lol

Yes, this could be unschooling There are so many different ways to do it. We do make materials available, but never (well, very rarely) suggest that we should work on a particular subject. My 7 year old is reading at, well, I guess I don't know what level, but she reads as well as people in their teens read, but my 5 year old hasn't shown much of an interest in reading yet. Actually today he asked me to show him how to make letters, but that was the first time. So he's on a different schedule that the 7 year old. It just means you respect where your children are at and trust that they will learn what they need to learn when they are ready.
Its very LOA

I think it's bits and pieces sometimes. Like, sometimes it really isn't meant for our path...or maybe only for a little while to gain knowledge...or maybe because we have tried to kill it by overwatering...waiting for it to grow... lol Yeah, bits and pieces...
