It is that time of year
again when we all start
our New Year's resolutions
and what we want to
for the upcoming year.
I have never been a fan of New Year's resolutions.
I tend to
on my being throughout the entire year
rather than committing to growth at the start of the new year
and then falling of the wagon a month later.
I don't condemn anyone else in their process of growth,
but it just doesn't work for me.
What works for me is a Treasure Map.
I am a visual person by nature
and having a reminder of the areas
I want to focus on in my life
helps me to maintain growth in those areas.
We have all heard
a tremendous amount of talk
the last few years regarding the
Law of Attraction.
I believe that our thoughts do shape our lives.

By using a poster board
( I use a 8x10 flat canvas board because it is really sturdy)
to paste words and images from magazines
you can create your own Treasure Map.
The idea behind a
is that when you surround yourself
with images of
who you want to become
your life changes to match those desires.
I have gathered
a group of friends and family
to work on my treasure map
I have worked on mine as a solo project.

The vision shown above was one
that I created through a transitional period in my life
when I was nearing the end of my divorce.
Although finding a new relationship was not what I was focusing on at the time I still included a relationship area. In it I included the symbol of a bull to represent the astrological symbol of a Taurus. My symbol is a Cancer which according to astrology is most compatible with a Taurus. 3 months after I created this vision board I met my LOVE who is has been perfect for me.
Maybe, but I like to think that it was a result of me
focusing on what I needed
at the time to heal myself
and the universe
knew that this person would help me along that path.
