A Treasure map helps in both regards.
The treasure map is based on the Ba Gua. The Bagua originates from the I Ching, or “Book of Changes”, an ancient divination tool many thousands of years old. The I Ching has and is used as a tool for guidance to help people make important life decisions. Its wisdom states that when we are aligned with the balanced energy or Ch’i of the cosmos our lives flow more smoothly.
There are many ways to create your own treasure map.
We often potluck delicious foods and drinks and make an event of setting out our intentions for the coming year amidst the warmth and support of friends. If we did a treasure map for the previous year, we often reflect on how it manifested throughout that year.
We then look through old magazines and catalogues and cut out pictures and phrases that resonate with us. We divide a sizable poster board into the sections of the Ba Gua. Then the pictures and phrases are glued onto the sections that correspond to the aspect of our life that they reflect. For example, I put a quote in the bottom center of my treasure map that says “If you get paid for doing what you love, then every paycheck is a bonus.”
The completed treasure map is placed in a prominent place to be a reminder of the intentions set forth.
I am living and breathing my treasure map. I know what I want and it is flowing my way, sometimes in ways I least expect and often not at all how I imagined.
Open yourself to your connection to the cosmos, invite the cosmos to serve you and serve it. Make your own treasure map and see what treasures come your way.
