MomOBrien Thanks Loftmama, my daughter is living in Japan now and wasn't sure when to start. This is our fourth map and the first one we will be doing on our own. She is usually the one that gets me revved up for tm time, so I'm not feeling it without her here. I'm still gonna do it though.

loftmama hey jenlove, thanks!

momobrien, i think tracy talks about it somewhere. i'm not much help. sorry. maybe ask on the new thread???
03-24-2009 09:23 PM
MomOBrien Hi, I have a quick question I hope someone can answer so I don't have to go back through all of the posts.....does anyone know when to start if you live in Japan? Thanks

Neva I haven't posted here in a really long time, but I've had almost everything in my map fullfilled.

The oddest one I wanted to share. I put at picture of a river flowing over some rocks, without knowing whta it meant but knowing it should be there. This past summer my DH took me to a spot off of the trail he was building and wouldn't you know it, it looks identical to this picture. We spend a lot of time at this spot and have soo many happy memories from here. Probably the most relivant picture on my map. I didn't make the connection of the picture and place until almost a month ago.

There are a few more images left to come, but I am so happy with how everything has happened. My map has been a lifting experience and I am excited for next year.

adinal I am having a wonky map year. I think I was more unfocused than I realized last April. Looking forward to this year.
01-03-2009 06:55 PM
babycarrier My map is moving at an accelerated pace. Wow! So many things have come to fruition. And not in the easiest ways - like totalling my car but replacing it with what I wanted. And somehow coming out fairly unscathed physically - still healing. I strongly wanted a new safe car - didn't anticipate how this would come to pass.

But so many other things are literal translations of pictures on my map. I will be even more focused next year and am loving this year. I have been thinking about the map often and meditating on some concepts on it. The new year and my birthday next week have me feeling so free and grounded. Which is wonderful as I was coming off of a rocky go.

Just had to share someplace where other people won't look at me like I have 3 heads
12-21-2008 10:19 PM
Maiasaura just googled it...it's april 5th. so which days do we have to make the map?

Sisyphus Hey, Tracy Speaking of new moons and treasure maps...

Is there anything we can be doing in the last quarter of this map to prepare for next years' map?

And what is the date of the 2009 Aries new moon? I see a new moon starting March 26th (I think, I closed the window LOL) and one April 25. Which one is the aries new moon?

My map this year was, interesting, to say the least... I was very conflicted and sort of "off" when I made it... but a LOT of positive stuff has come from it. I am looking forward to seeing movement in the last quarter

Thanks!
12-19-2008 01:56 PM
Tracy I want to remind everyone that a lot of people have a lot of action in their maps on the last quarter...which is after Cap New Moon until March.

So, if you are feeling a lack of movement..watch what happens in the winter.

One year some of my biggest moves occurred in Feb and March!

Job area is RIGHT ON, I wanted to move to Hawaii (which was on a whim and no longer interests me) so that fell thru- but I DID just get a new job that I LOVE LOVE LOVE. On TM I pasted "I LOVE MY CAREER" and I most definitely do.



As for being single, I knew I wasn't wanting the right man to come along just yet, so I pasted on my TM a picture of my ex (DD father) and had words "positivity" "love" "friendship" around him...our connection went down a nasty hill for awhile, but we are building it back up, from scratch, and it was going slow, but great. I would rather have wrecked it to reform it, and that is exactly what has happened. Our connection is opening back up for better communication and teamwork when it comes to parenting our LO.


On the money aspect- I am making decent money at this new job, and on the TM I pasted a GOLF (the car) and said "Enjoy the ride" and a few months ago I was in a car accident, totalling my Jeep- which gives way for the new car to come into my life. We are working on settling with the insurance company (the other party was at fault) and thankfully no one was hurt badly!


On the family section...I had photos of my mom, brother and father. My mother and I are doing better, we have our ups and downs, but for the most part I am learning more about her and respecting her for the things she has overcome and the sacrifices she has made for me and my younger brother. My brother and I are rocky at best. He has found his path (and I specifically put that on my TM "May he find his path into his fun and loving future"). My relationship with my father seemed to strengthen at first, but now, has completely fallen apart. I tried talking with him about a few things. He is sick...very sick...and I shouldn't have said some of things I said, I pointed fingers and I want to make amends, but he refuses to accept my calls or emails and has blocked me through online communication. That is a real bummer for me. I hope he is doing ok. On my TM next to a photo of my father and me I have "Healing", we will see where the flow takes us..........



I am growing into a more patient, attentive mother- which was the center focus of the TM :
jazzbaby, you rock.

in terms of weight... you might add on Cap New Moon which is next week... these words...

"I am happy and grateful that I easily attract and maintain a lean healthy body."

see if that helps.
but like I said..you rock.

jazzybaby9 I have to take a good look at my map and connect the dots! So far so good! I've hit giant rocky patches, but it was all necessary to get where I'm going A few not so positive things have happened, but I hope they will work themselves out shortly.
11-24-2008 03:45 PM
xochimama OMG I just have to say this year's TM has been absolutely incredible.

All these things on my map have come to fruition:
I had my absolute DREAM homebirth in September (this was the central image and focus), a family vacation in Mexico happening next month, and another BIGGIE--- I sold two large paintings to public collections which will be most of the down payment on a house for us. (the house has appeared for on my TMs for two years now)

AND we just got an email from our landlords that they want to sell us their house. (We've been talking about approaching them for a few months now... holy moly WOW)

I'm just...floored...at how much has come true. And so much of the spititual and emotional visions have come true, for me and for the whole family.

Tracy I don't have an answer, goodcents. It is the same with me. Some years I have more balls out of the park but I still always get results, just more on some years than others.
10-21-2008 11:14 AM
goodcents Tracy I have had years when the TM has been wildly successful. And then other years nothing at all seems to happen.....why do you think this is?

Well, I'm Canadian, so already had Thanksgiving...but that just means I won't have distractions.

Thanks for the advice.


Sisyphus, I like the idea of a corkboard. Right now, my upper fridge door serves something like that purpose for me, but the alphabet magnets and school lunch forms are kinda cluttering up my vision
10-21-2008 10:10 AM
Sisyphus I am loving the idea of having a vision board next to my treasure map... I am thinking that I will hang a cork board next to my map and add things to it as I feel them!! That way, I can also move things around if I want to!

I've always done an annual Christmas letter or email to close friends and family (I know, I know, but I always get positive feedback on it.)

I'd keep doing it even if I never mailed it off, because writing it really is important for me in summing up our year as a family, areas of growth, challenges, etc. The last paragraph or two are all about setting the stage for the future, and writing those parts in particular feels very Treasure Mapish/Visionboard -like. Like a mission statement for the coming calendar year, y'know? Also, I keep all the letters and they become a kind of family history for my kids.

Anyway, I usually don't start working on our letter until late November, but I've started thinking about it earlier this year. I was wondering if starting on a new moon would make much difference, and if so, the one in October or November? Which would be better?

Last year, I did our letter in November, but there was a significant death in the family right after that, so it never got sent out. I'd like to get on track again this year...

jazzybaby9 I think I've really been seeing some movement when it comes to my TM. My baby's dad and I are no longer together (for the best) and on my TM I put a picture of him and our daughter with the words "Love & Positivity", but he hasn't been around for 2 months now and shows absolutely NO interest in her or making things better...........so in that aspect the universe has taken it in the opposite direction of the TM............

Anyway, more on this later...........................:

Tracy in terms of the treasure map, that really needs to be made on Aries new moon...of course that is 6 months from now. what I would recommend, is why don't you make a vision board now. which is just like a treasure map. And then next spring when it is time to make the Treasure Map you can include what you did now or start all over fresh.

Could be a whole new world then.

But if you do it now, y ou should do it on Libra New Moon which is September 29.
09-24-2008 07:24 PM
TinyBabyBean HI. I missed TM this year. On purpose mostly. My map from last year really hadn't came through on anything and I feel like some of the things on it are starting to manifest with my body and such. I just sort of felt like it was still working or something and couldn't feel the pulling to make another one. Now, I feel the pulling to make a new one.

Is there any specific time that would be best for me? I am an Aries if that makes a difference.

I just happened to attract a whole bunch of newer magazines all at once today, for free. September and October issues so I felt this was my sign to finally go forward with making a new one.
