Treasure Mapping – Do it! You are worth it!
I learned about, and practiced making treasure maps in 1987, when I read Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain. I was 16 years old. I didn’t have a lot of crap gunking up my brain back then – I was a master at manifesting and I manifested an amazing life.
In the 90s, I learned about following the moon, and that helped me pay attention to my intentions and actions a bit more steadily. Combined with astrology, whoa! That’s some power. I fronted a band that played regularly all over New York and the tri-state area, was in college (and graduated magna cum laude), wrote horoscopes for Cosmo, lived in New York City, went to an ashram and became a certified yoga instructor, volunteered at the New York Open Center – there was a lot going on.
In the early 2000s, I took a detour into married life and Corporate America. I bought into the lie that I was old and it was time to settle down. For me settling down is actually making the commitment to grow in love and spirit. I found out that isn’t everyone’s idea of marriage. As soon as I said, “I do,” I heard a lot of people telling me “you can’t . . . ” Both the job and the marriage were soul crushing. My health deteriorated drastically and I was unhappy. It was a terrible life for me!
I got off track. Or did I?
I had to relearn many of the things I so readily accepted as possible when I was very young. (And by the way, so many strong women I know have similar stories about losing their confidence or having their sense of self shaken in their 30s – and it taking until their mid-40s to get it back).
Luckily, I had tools like astrology, yoga, intention setting with lunar cycles, treasure mapping and vision boarding, creative visualization, meditation – and they helped me create a new and better life.
Aries New Moon is the perfect time to make a map. Aries is the child of the zodiac, the energy is of growth and enthusiasm – the vibe is nothing is impossible.
My last roommate had this written on his fridge – I’M POSSIBLE.
I wholeheartedly agree – if you are going to make one vision board a year, the Aries New Moon is the time to do it.
Watch this conversation between Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh of Astrology Hub and Tracy Cook. Get inspired! Open your mind – imagine the world you want to live in! Let yourself be selfish for an hour or two and get creative – I promise you wont regret it.
Be an April Fool!
Aries New Moon falls on April 1st this year.
You can do it!
I would love to hear how it goes for you.
Peace and springtime love –
