Some years ago, I can’t remember the exact year, the book “The Secret” re-introduced the idea of visualizing what you want your life to be like and creating a “live” space for that visualization to manifest.
I’m a person that needs to affirm my plans and it’s even better if I can see them. Hence, why my work bag is heavy and filled with EVERYTHING! I keep notes oAn every single aspect that happens and what I want to see happen. Ever since I read “The Secret”, I stated continuously that I will create a vision board. I’m thinking that now is right on time….I have so many things in the works and I’m often overwhelmed. If I can get it all out of my head and onto a vision board, I can see my way through some organization and manifestation.
What is a vision board?
A vision board is a display of what you want to attract/bring to life. It helps you to visualize that in which you would like to happen in your life.
According to the book “The Secret”, “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe”.
What to do?
Your vision board can be whatever you want it to be…there is no right or wrong. Your board should focus on things that you want to attract to your life, but more importantly you want your board to also focus on how you want to feel. For instance, I love how I feel when I go for a long (okay…long for me) solo run, so I would include an image of a woman running in a serene environment, or a pic of some fly running gear.Another great example is my love for traveling with my extended family. We often share multi-family vacations to ski resorts or beach resorts. I would like to continue to enjoy these types of vacations each year, so I would place a picture of us during one of our vacations on my vision board. So, think about your goals and what you want to attract to your life. These are the things should be depicted on your vision board. The areas can vary from health, relationships, business, family, travel, financial security, wealth….the list is endless! Just think about what inspires you….
What you will need…
*You will need whatever type of board you want to use. Keep in mind that the board should be able to fit into a space that you will see each and every day. You can use cork board, poster board, or you can even get a pretty pin board from a craft store or Etsy.
*Markers, pens, colored pencils, stickers….whatever you would like to use pizzazz your board. Or, you can just use images. It’s totally your choice!
*Tape, pins, glue…whatever you plan to use to keep stuff “on” your board.
*Magazines that you can cut images out of.
*Quotes that you would like to place on your board. For me, I keep a WORD file of notable quotes. I will definitely include a few of those on my board. I actually will write them out as writing helps things “sink in” for me.
*Time. Set aside the time to create the board that you truly want! Even better…plan a Vision Board Party where you can get together with some friends and have a great time putting your boards together.
This is an opportunity to create something magnificent! Put on some good music, create a relaxing atmosphere and get it going….Enjoy the process!
I plan to do mine in a couple of weekends…what about you?
