Jane, you have lofty goals. You are making me think I should dream/do bigger. I remember my first "treasure map" which is a visualization board. I did it 20 years ago. I cut a teeny tiny ad for a microwave and put that on my poster board. Yup, that's what I wanted, a microwave. Since then I've learned to dream a bit bigger. I look forward to all the messages and posts we will share in the new year. Love and Light, Lynn

Lynn,

Funny you mentioned the treasure map...I have my original one from 5 years ago that I have been updating over the years and was just thinking that it might be time for a whole new one...we'll see...I may just update it again...I'm really thinking about a house...I've been renting for over a year and I'm starting to want a place of my own again...bigger with more closets! In the meantime, I'll try to enjoy living right here...

Are there any specific directions for making one? I've never done it. I'm a big one for writing things sown, but have never done a map. Any advice is welcome.

Dotsie,

The way I've done them is to cut out pictures and words from magazines that represent things that I want and just paste them on poster board. One source recommended including pictures of yourself on the board so that your subconscious will recognize that it is for you. So I pictures of me and my girls on mine. I'll have to add Bailey, too!

Mine has things for the top 4 areas in life...relationships, spiritual, health and career/finances. But you can do one for just one area or one project. You can take photographs of things you want...like you sitting in the new car that you want...you can draw pictures...it really doesn't matter how you do it. Some people do notebooks instead of posters so they can take them with them. Some people create a treasure chest and put all the stuff in a decorative box.

The sky's the limit...be creative and have fun with it.

Well Ladies...

My reign as author of the month is officially coming to a close. It's 10:00 pm here in Alabama...but I know it's midnight somewhere...so I'm headed to bed.

My hope is that you have found some morsel from our time together that you can take away with you. I know that several of you purchased a copy of Bertha...I am very grateful and hope it will bring you as much pleasure as it did me to write it.

I just finished the monthly Bertha-Zine...I try to include a new Bertha story every month...sometimes it is challenging...but I do this as my gift back to my readers and friends. There's a link on the website, if you'd like to subscribe...I'd love to have you! There's also the blog, which I don't update as often as I would like...but it's fun when I do...again, I'd love for you to check it out. And don't forget the radio show...it's a nice blend of Bertha wisdom and interviews with experts from all walks of life...some of them you even know!

2007 is going to be a great year for all of us...let me know if I can help you in any way! Until then...find something to smile about every day...life is better when you're smiling!
