Creating A Vision Board

There are a couple of creative projects which I have recently completed that are truly making  a difference in getting clear on in my life. 

The first of these was making vision board. In the past I had sort of pooh-poohed the idea of doing this. I thought it was a little too hokey and that cutting out pictures and writing things down to put on poster boards was more of a silly art project rather than  something that would be of any benefit to me. I think the other thing that was stopping me was my thought that I am not artistic and that I really can’t create anything that would actually be of use to me, let alone something I’d display.

If you are motivated to take your life to the next level, it is imperative that you take the time to make your dreams real and a vision board can help you do exactly that. Jack Canfield, the New York Times Bestselling Author of the “Chicken Soup For The Soul” book series, is a big believer in the power of vision boards and has said that “creating a vision board is probably one of the most valuable visualization tools available to you.”

At some point though I realized why not just try it. I mean a piece of poster board is fairly inexpensive and there are always magazines lying around to cut out words and images from. So I started gathering a few things at a time that represented what I thought were important things to me. What did I hope to manifest in my future.Things like motivating words, pictures, ideas, places I want to travel to, handsome men I’d like to meet, even old photographs that I found while going through my things.  Basically it boils down to a few steps:

  1. Get clear on your biggest goals 

  2. Gather inspiration from magazines, sayings, photographs, whatever calls to you.

  3. Put it together. 

  4. Hang it up somewhere that you see on a regular basis.

  5. See what happens!

Why not try it yourself?
