It was nice to watch yesterday, how many women took the first step in a new field of finding out all about Vision Boards. Almost 80 % haven't heard or done Vision Boards before which made it even more exciting.
I received lots of feedback of aha moments, ideas, hints and excitement to get started at home and I can't wait to get some feedback soon.
We heard and read it many times now
Everything is created twice, first in the mind as a thought and then as reality. The mind thinks in pictures.
The Law of attraction
But do we access it on a daily base? Are we watching our thoughts to create a healthy, loving and joyful life? Or are we so overwhelmed everydays life and our thoughts about it that we are too exhausted and tired to change anything or even have given up on it. Than a Vision Board can be a great start for a change to do so. :)
I wanted the women to see last night as a rehearsal, as Fun and Joy to get into the mood and excitement of creating a Vision Board. To open a door which was probably much too long closed.
Some hints before you get started
Get magazines from the shop, breathe in and put your hand on your heart and choose a magazine, you will be surprised
Feel don’t think your way into the process
Act without thinking otherwise you will look for things what are logical
Don’t get into the marketing, so not too long time to focus on the magazine
Best to look at the images and see how you feel
Don’t stick with what is possible
Don’t try to make a rational connection
Don’t settle for the second best
DREAM BIG!!!! If your dream doesn’t scare you, it is probably not big enough
4 levels of a vision board
a huge mistake is that we are not combining all of them, some have only one or two in it
Level 1 Physical
Things, money cars, houses, a hot body, cloth
What does your Body or Ego wants in order to survive and be comfortable
Level 2 Emotional
Relationships, Love, family, church, community, friends, pets
How do you want to feel?
Level 3 Mental
Success, Career, awards, accomplishments, jobs, recognition
What do you believe you deserve?
Level 4 Spiritual,
purpose, humanity causes, bucket list
Who do you want to become?
Before you stick your images, affirmations on the board have a second look at the whole and ask yourself
What is missing on my VisionBoard?
Take away irrelevant factors
Not overloaded, less is more
Look at it like a map where you are and where you want to go
List of different types of Vision Boards
“Opening and Allowing” Vision Board:
In creating a collage of images and positive affirmations, it can sometimes feel overwhelming, when in this emotional space of uncertainty.
Start with a gentle and kind focus on healing images and positive affirmations to help you center your vibrational (energy) core.
If you find yourself being a tough critic eg, “you won’t ever get that!” “that’s never going to happen” etc and find yourself ‘stuck’ on the “HOW?” then creating the “Opening and Allowing” board will be a great opportunity for you to nurture your spirit and place yourself in a receptive state once again.
Remember, you can always update your Vision Board again, as you shift emotionally. You will find that as you start attracting some of your desires into reality, you will gain emotional momentum in magnetizing even more.
You can also create a combination of all three types of Vision Board strategies. The key is to trust and follow YOUR INTUITION.
The old saying goes we believe what we see but we actually see what we believe.
Believing in yourself, being able to envision yourself living your dreams goes a long way to actualizing your goal.
What is your vision for yourself? Can you picture what you will be doing when you achieve your vision? What will it look like? What will other people say about you? What feelings will you experience? What would the headlines read if a newspaper would publish it?
5 Steps to getting what you want
1 asking for what you want
2 believe you can have it
3 seeing it in your mind
4 creating the vision
5 manifest it into reality without blocking it
How to start a Vision Board.
Give yourself time, this can be a process of a couple of days before you actually start, as better prepared you are as better your Board will be the Real YOU!
Be sure you will be undisturbed, get excited, this is your time, your life, your future, light candles, Meditate, get still prepare yourself, ask questions, set yourself up in a ‘sacred space’ with some soft, meditative music
Decide the main theme of your board
Find pictures that correspond with your theme, Type or write some affirmations that correspond with your theme. Include a picture of yourself where you have been happy
Once you have your images selected, you will begin to see how they might be arranged. Some people arrange their board with each section being a different goal, some create more of a timeline, some use a more random approach. A good rule of thumb is to use larger pictures as background, cut out smaller images to go in front. There is no “right way” so do whatever feels right for you. Be as creative as you like!
Dont’ forget to write down the day you created your vision board
Questions you can ask yourself:
Once the board is created, how to get the most of it:
What if I’m not sure about my goals?
You can still make a vision board! Don't get stressed about it. Start with images that excite you or make you happy. You don’t have to know why you love them, just that you do! Once you have all your images in a pile, you will begin to see a pattern with them. What do they say about you, or your goals?
What does it mean? Look at each image to figure out what your life is missing. You may not understand right away, it may take months for it to become clear. Use the board to focus on what your intuition is telling you!
Reason to have a Vision Board
Keeps you focused
Getting back on the road of FUN in Life
Live your Life by Design and not by Default
Don't let another month, year, decade of your life pass without the awareness, I created it and it was fun doing so.
One of my dear Mentors Jim Rohn, once explained how fast time can pass if we are not careful.
A man wanted to go fishing with his best friend in summer but there were always reason why they had to postpone it. The friend explained, No problems I have still many years to do so. He was reminding the friend that many years can be 20 summers and when you look at this number it sounds and looks different as when you just talk about many years. So how many summers do you have left to spend the best time of your life. Make 2014 the best one. Another great Mentor teached me "Don't die with your Music still inside". Dare to live :)
You can also find Vision board software on the Internet, I would always think for the fun part and getting into it, I would always advice to do it yourself on a board you can hang on the wall.
Final Trust in the process, surrender and let go
You just planted a seed and you don’t dig it up daily to see how far it got.
The Bamboo, planted in the right soil, enough sun and water
1., 2., 3. , 4. Year grows 2 inches (5 cm)
5. year 80 feet (23 meter)
20 years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did!
Therefore!! Dream big, you only have this life and it is not a dress-rehearsal
Get out of your comfort zone
Remember when did you do last time something that scared you to death and you did it anyway because you wanted it so much? How did you feel?
