Vision boards are becoming a much more popular ornament in our bedrooms but a lot of people are still sceptical that cutting and sticking will help them achieve their goals.
If you are one of those people who are on the fence, after reading this article, you will be Googling where to get a big enough piece of card to add all your goals on!
THE LAW OF ATTRACTION
We have all heard the term 'what you see is what you get' but not a lot of people take this literally. By creating a vision board with your goals on it, you are taking the vision you have created in your mind and created something in order for you to see it in the physical realm, in other words you are another step closer to creating your dreams into a reality! the Law of Attraction which uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialise them into reality. In basic terms, all thoughts turn into things eventually.
TAP INTO YOUR CREATIVITY
Every time we have had a vision board workshop, the top comment has been " it's very calming. You tap out of social media and being on devices and tap into the creative side of the brain which doesn't happen often!".The fast pace lifestyle our generation has inhabited has caused us to constantly be on the go and not respect the importance of slowing down and taking time out for yourself. This exercise is great as its relaxed and you are still manifesting you dreams.
CONNECTS YOUR BRAIN TO YOUR EMOTIONAL STATE
No matter how much self-doubt you have, a vision board done right will slowly begin to transform your inner belief system into one which is more confident, certain, and self-motivated.
Q: What should I put on my vision board?
A: Anything that inspires and motivates you.The purpose of your vision board is to bring everything on it to life.First, think about what your goals are in the following areas: relationships, career and finances, home, travel, personal growth (including spirituality, social life, education) and health.
If you are someone who is currently struggling to know which path you want to take or you struggle to imagine your future, take time out to get inspiration; read, listen to podcasts, even when you are creating your vision board, as you may use magazines you may find different things within the magazine that inspires you.
Give yourself time when creating this. It is something that will keep you motivated and positive. Create a quiet space for your self, burn some incense and enjoy this time by appreciating your work and creativity.
Q: How realistic should my vision board be?
This is something very personal to you, don't create limitations for yourself! Remember what you see is what you get, so if you want to live your life the way YOU want it to be, create a vision board of your dreams. It may seem realistic at first but each day if you chip away at your goals and reaffirm them, it will slowly become your reality.
