IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO MAKE ME HAPPY. A flickering candle, smoldering incense. Delicious food. Good wine. Honorable, passionate people. Dazzling sunsets. Enchanting moonbeams. A sensuous life. Perfect espresso to make the perfect cappuccino. For readers to love my books.

Okay, maybe I need to rephrase that opening thought. New opening thought: I AIM HIGH.

Day 2 of the ParaGoddess One Week Revolution 11/7 - Personal TREASURE MAPS

It's time to make a Treasure Map.  This is my own term for the tool also known as a dream or vision board.  A Treasure Map is a poster collage made up of images and phrases or words that depict who you are, who you want to be, where you're headed and what you desire.

Your Treasure Map should also depict what you love and what you're passionate about.  The finished product serves as a map you can literally follow, helping you to stay on track with embracing and manifesting your own personal treasure: a vibrant, fulfilled, beautiful life.


Pictured:  A Treasure Map I made in 2009.  I'm proud to share that every goal, desire or personal trait depicted on that treasure map was attained, satisfied or amplified.  I did good in 2009.  Looking for a strong finish to 2010 and a powerful 2011. 


Today, or as soon as you can, gather all the materials you'll need: a poster board, an old magazine or two you don't mind cutting up, scissors, a glue stick, tools to color with: colored pencils (my favorite), crayons or markers.  A pen or pencil will do if you've got none of the aforementioned.  You will also need a journal or notebook.

I suggest you set the stage for creating your Treasure Map.  Wear comfortable clothing, light a candle, perhaps a stick of incense.  Settle down into quiet space; be sure you won't be interrupted.

Go through your magazine(s) and cut out pictures, words or phrases that speak to you.  Again, your goal is to depict who you are, what you love, what you want, where you're headed.  The pictures and words/phrases you choose should illuminate your goals and desires, too.  So it's encouraged to portray what you intend to create or manifest.

Write or paste on words, intentions, incantations, desires.  Place or hang your finished Treasure Map in a prominent location.  Look at it as often as you wish, as often as you can.  Let it feed, inspire and inform you.  When you're ready, get your journal out and make a list of exactly what you know you need to do in order to experience, embrace, amplify or create your treasure.

This ParaGoddess Lifestyle Revolution is about shaking things up and creating your best life.  We're in it together.  We can do this.  Now let's make some bitchen Treasure Maps!  Team ParaGoddess for the WIN, baby.
