Secrets, Treasure Maps & Treasure Chests go back to Thoughts page

There has been a lot of talk recently about The Secret, a book and DVD that explains how people can use the Law of Attraction to manifest, or create, what they want in their lives.  The Law of Attraction simply states that things of like vibration are drawn to each other: like attracts like.  You use this law every day, whether you are aware of it or not.  The Secret explains some ways to consciously use the Law of Attraction to manifest your dreams, and one such way is to make a treasure map or treasure chest. 

A treasure map is simply a material representation of something that you want to have, to do, or to be.  One popular way to create a treasure map is to make a collage of images that represent your dream.  You can cut out pictures from magazines, or draw them yourself.  Many sources suggest that you include a photo of yourself in your treasure map, and then display the poster where you will see it frequently.

To make a treasure chest, you simply collect in a container several material representations of your dream.  For the container itself, you can decorate a shoebox, or simply use a basket or a gift bag (a good choice if you are short on time or don’t enjoy crafts). 

Which one should you use?  Whichever one you prefer.  A treasure map is primarily a visual device that lets you see the whole picture, and see yourself in it.  A treasure chest appeals to your visual and tactile senses; you can hold the objects in your hands as you look at them.  Plus you can bring it with you as you go about your day—another good idea. 

If you are strongly influenced by your auditory senses, you can augment your treasure map or treasure chest with things that verbally represent your dreams.  If using a map, be sure to include positive affirmations and key phrases on it, and say or read them to yourself every time you look at it.  If using a chest, you can include a CD or tape of a favorite song that evokes in you the positive emotions that are tied to your dream, and play it frequently.
