Did you know that visualization is one of the most powerful exercises you can do? There is a book you may be familiar with called, The Secret, and the premise is that what you think about, you bring about or you manifest into your consciousness. “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe,” according to the book.
So what should go on yous vision board? Well, for me, the first thing on there should be focusing on how you want to feel and bring that into your life. Of course, you can add the stuff too – the things, places and people you want as well.
So what are the rules? Love this! There are no rules. You aren’t going to mess it up, you can create your vision board on your own terms.
Here are a few things to think on as you get your vision board out of your head and heart and into reality:
- Put anything that inspires and motivates you on your board. The purpose of your vision board is to bring everything on it to life. First, think about what your goals are in the following areas: relationships, career and finances, home, travel, personal growth (including spirituality, social life, education) and health. Remember that what you focus on expands. Handwrite your goals for each area so they have more meaning to you.
- I like the idea of one central board but you can create different boards (kind of like pinterest) if that suits you better.
- Change your board or add to it as needed. I like to start a new one at the end of each year. Some things stay, some go.
Set the mood. Turn off the TV and turn on some relaxing music. Light a candle and clear your space. When it comes to actually putting your stuff on the board, lay everything out before you start gluing and pinning so you can get an idea of where you want everything. You may like space or perhaps you like to have things close together. Maybe different areas represent different aspects of you. Use poster board, scissors, glue, markers, magazines and the stuff you want to look at every day. Photos, quotes, sayings, images of places you want to go, reminders of events, places, or people, postcards from friends and just about anything that will inspire you. Just have fun!
If you are so inclined, I would love to see a photo of your vision board or just share a few special things that are on it and why!
