How To Create A Treasure Map: A Vision Board That Works!

treasure-mapTreasure Map making is a lost art which neatly ties together cosmic ordering, co-creating within the universe and creative visualization. Creating your own treasure map (aka Vision Board) is a simple exercise that anyone can do in order to manifest whatever it is that you wish to appear in the material world.

Creating your own treasure map or vision board is not only a fun creative outlet, but it also is a great way for you to focus your intentions on exactly what you’re looking for in life. To make your own, spend some quality time looking at magazines and images on Pinterest to find images and words that really resonate within you.  Be specific and search for pictures that illustrate exactly what you want.

Your treasure map can be a “full circle” impression of your life, if you’d like. Full Circle means that your treasure map can include images beyond the  material “things” you desire, and can involve what you are looking for in specific quadrants of your life. As an example, quadrants could include:

  • Home
  • Health & Fitness
  • Family
  • Love Life
  • Relationships
  • Personal Development
  • Career
  • Friends
  •  Travel & Leisure

Your quadrants on your treasure map vision board might include some of the above or be completely different. There’s no right or wrong approach to creating your map.

Now that you’ve spent time gathering your pictures, words and phrases…it’s time to become a Map Maker!

Treasure Map Making Tools Needed:

  • A large piece of cardboard OR cork board (found at Office Depot or Staples) OR a bulletin board
  • Glue Stick
  • Push Pins (if you’re using the cork or bulletin board approach)
  • Happy picture of yourself
  • Pictures, Images, Words, Photographs that you’ve gathered to represent your desires, dreams
  • Small Crystals

Creating Your Treasure Map Layout With The Power of Intention Behind It

Place the picture of your happy, smiling self in the center of the board. Now arrange your desire pictures and words around the pciture of yourself. As you place each picture, it’s important to create an intention.

Keep your intention focused in the present tense, not in the future.  For instance, as you place each image, say the following to yourself:  “This is my beautiful xxxx.  It is exactly what I want. It is here now.”  OR… “I am now the VP of yyyyy at work. I am making great money, enjoying the people I work with and love what I do! This is exactly what I want. It is here now”

Add Crystals To Your Treasure Map

As a last step, adding crystals to your treasure map will assist in your ability to manifest with cosmic ordering. Crystals will help diffuse any negative, subconscious energy. Any self-doubt, self-pity or fears that may be underneath your surface blocks the manifestation process. Lack of connection to the Universal energy source hampers the ability to bring things to fruition. Crystals transmute the negativity away from your treasure map and allow the Universe to do it’s thing on your behalf!

Select the appropriate crystals for your particular treasure map. Cleanse and program each crystal as appropriate*. Glue the crystals on to the corresponding area of your treasure map.
