We are now past the half way mark in 2016 - do you even remember what your 'New Years resolutions' were? Let alone having achieved any of them?
We are firm believers that you need to put your wants, desires and dreams down on paper, out to the universe, to attract and manifest all those happy, positive, good experiences into your life.
There is so much power in creating a Vision Board, but only when you are precise, have a clear plan and purpose when doing so. Sticking a few pretty words on a big piece of cardboard is hardly going to turn your life around, but having purpose and unwavering belief and intention with what you place on it, can.
Now, a vision board isn't a magic trick where you can place all of these 'things' you want in your life on there, and somehow they will turn up on your doorstep the next day (wouldn't that be nice though?)
No, a vision board reminds you every day what you're working towards, what your hard work is pulling you closer to having in your life. It also reminds you to never give up, to keep pushing and to keep trying, because rolling over and being defeated surely can't be better than continuing to work towards your hearts truest desires... even if it takes while?
Or, the more popular way (and personally, our favourite way) is to print out the pictures, or cut images out of a magazine and paste onto a poster board and arrange like a collage along with key words or motivating words that show what it is you're asking the universe for. When finished, you hang it up somewhere that you will see it every single day.
Most of the time, people will have fun doing this step, hanging it up and every now and then, look at it and wish with all their might that a miracle will happen rather than putting some real thought into what action steps they need to take in order to accomplish what they have on their board.
Before you start the creative process of doing a vision board, sit down and have a really good think about a few things:
Make sure you keep reading, because I have FREEBIES for you at the end!
There's someone we follow on Facebook that is a truly inspirational and uplifting person, and he often shares stories about how vision boards and writing what you want in your life down on paper has helped him to transform his life. To cut a long story short...he recently shared that a few years ago he did a vision board and had a picture of the type of home he wanted to own one day (after hitting rock bottom in his life)... After years, and lots of hard but fulfilling work in his business, he finally bought a home. While packing, he came across his vision board, that had since been put away (for some time), and to his absolute delight, the place he had bought, was almost IDENTICAL to the picture he had stuck on his vision board YEARS prior.
How's that for amazing? We got goosebumps reading that! And just goes to show that they do help, and your dreams can come true... even down to the finer details!
So, once you have become very clear about what you WANT, then you get to the fun part of getting all your materials! Think poster board, glue, pens/texters, scissors, some magazines (and a printer if you want to print your FREEBIES at the end).
We hope that this post has inspired you to make your dreams clear to the universe, and to start making plans to get them happening!
