"Do you have a vision board? They are one of the most valuable visualization tools available to you because they represent your dreams, your goals, and your ideal life." ~Jack Canfield
Your brain will work tirelessly to achieve the statements you give your subconscious mind. And when those statements are the affirmations and images of your goals, you are destined to achieve them!
Because your mind responds strongly to visual stimulation-by representing your goals with pictures and images-you will actually strengthen and stimulate your emotions... and your emotions are the vibrational energy that activates the Law of Attraction.
So DO YOU have a vision board?
Well, step on up to today's challenge!
Today's Challenge: Create your very own Vision Board! Get a large piece of poster foam board - in any color you choose (my personal favorite is black as it offers a great contrast). Gather up lots of magazines of any type, some glue sticks, glitter, stickers, markers, crayons and any other art supplies you might have. Set aside a few hours for this project so you can really dive into your subconscious mind.
Before you begin: Put on some soft music. Start by sitting and getting quiet, observing your breath and settling in. After a few minutes, with lots of kindness and openness, ask yourself "What do I really desire?" Maybe one word will be the answer. Maybe images will come into your head. Just take a moment to be with that. This process makes it a deeper experience. It gives a chance for your ego to step aside just a little, so that you can more clearly create your vision. Allow the feelings to bubble to the surface - and take an emotional snapshot. Remember, this is about feeling the feeling, not the thought or material thing. For example: You may 'think' you want to be zooming down the highway in a Porsche Panamera, but the feeling you desire is FREEDOM.
Spend 30-45 minutes going through the magazines - no gluing yet. Allow the pictures todraw you in and pick you. The images allow your subconscious to bubble to the surface in a way that words or thoughts can't. Cut or rip them out without analyzing or even knowing why you're drawn to them. Have FUN! Make a BIG pile.
After you're through collecting images, go through your pile and let your inner artist out to play. Begin to lay your favorites on the board. Eliminate any images that no longer feel right. This step is where your intuition comes in. As you lay the pictures on the board, you’ll get a sense how the board should be laid out. For instance, you might assign a theme to each corner of the board. Health, Job, Spirituality, Relationships. Or it may just be that the images want to go all over the place. Or you might want to fold the board into a book that tells a story. At my workshops, I’ve seen women come up with wildly creative ways to present a vision board. Observe your process - without judgment. Remember, there is no right way to do this - and you can't do it wrong. Enjoy the journey.
Once you're finished, step back from your Vision Board and observe what is revealed.
Hang it in a place where you can look at it often. .
