My friend Julie recently started up a Women’s Circle and at the first gathering, everyone created vision boards. I was sick as a dog and didn’t get to go, but it inspired me to update my own vision boards by myself.
I have been making vision boards since I was 18. Around that time, I started working with an energy healer and she suggested that I make one. I have been hooked ever since and I try to re-do each one about every 6 months. This is the first time I updated them since Penelope was born though.
Vision boards fall in line with positive thinking. It’s the idea that whatever you think about, is what you create. Whatever your thoughts are, is what you manifest in your life. If you have seen The Secret, you know what I am talking about.
I usually have two or three going at once, so that I can sort of group the themes. I have found that the more specific your wish lists are, the better success you have in manifesting them.
Vision boards are a really fun thing to do, you get to harness your creative side and its a very mediative process. You can just zone out and daydream. It also makes me feel like I am doing something to achieve my goals and helps create that fire to continue to stay in action to make my dreams a reality. If y’all know me personally, you know I like to get things done!
The picture above is my “career” board. I keep in my craft nook area. I have got big dreams for this blog! Between my blog, my other ventures and network marketing business, I hope to be making an awesome living, without being away from Penelope, and being free from any financial stress and worries in the very near future.
For this one, I wrapped fabric around an empty canvas board and stapled in the back and glued the pictures to the fabric.
This one is my “house” vision board. This one changes a little bit more frequently. Usually, I post things I want for the kitchen or house or just other design ideas. I had the picture of the Ikea desk I got for my craft room on it about 4 months before I bought it. As soon I got it, I took down the picture and put something else up I am aspiring to do or have.
This one, I just pin the pictures to board. I think I got it at Target several years ago.
In fact, I just got a great rocking chair at a garage sale a couple of week ago, it kinda looks like this. It is a hideous pepto-bismal pink color and needs to be reupholstered, but I can take down my rocking chair picture on my board and move on to the next thing I want!
I so wish I had taken pictures of the boards I did right before I was pregnant and got married.
Everything manifested almost to a T, except for the breastfeeding curve ball I was thrown. I had all kinds of pictures of water births and Mamas catching their own babies.
And for a long time I had a separate “health” one, of fit ladies with six packs, eating vegetables and women cooking, etc. I am not perfect in that area yet, but I certainly have done a pretty good job manifesting better health in my life and the vision boards are big part of what got me where I am today.
Do you make vision boards? What’s on yours right now?
