A Vision Boards Work If You Work Them! - January 2017

How to create a vision board and make your dreams come true

Have you ever set a goal but fell short of attaining it? If you are similar to 90% of the population then you too have probably set a goal but didn’t reach it. However the other 10% of the population knows something that most others don’t and that is how to harness the power of the subconscious mind. The quickest way to invoke your subconscious to assist you in achieving your goals is with visuals, more aptly vision boards.

Every year between Christmas and New Year’s I take time to reflect on the year that just passed and I get clear about what I desire for the upcoming year. It’s a time of deep introspection for me, as I allow for time (sometimes days) to get clear about my heart’s desires and setting goals for the upcoming year. In 2001 I expanded my goal setting practice by adding a vision board. A vision board is a visual representation comprised of pictures and words representing what your heart desires.

Vision boards can be made out of construction paper, cardboard, cork board, or anything else you have around which you can easily glue, clip or pin pictures or phrases on that represent your hearts desires! Then it takes just a few simple steps to create your vision board. Since I have been making vision boards for years my first step will be different than yours if you haven’t made a board before. If this is your first board you can skip this first step but read it anyway so you know what to do first next year.

The first step I take is to reflect on my previous desires as I look at my current board and see what I manifested for the year. Then I remove the picture or words from the board that represent my attained goals.

Second, I look carefully at the board to see if the images still reflect my current heart’s desires, if they do, I leave them, if not they too get removed.

Third, I clip out pictures and words from magazines and search the Internet for images to print that represent what I desire to manifest for the upcoming year. I take this step only after I have spent some time focusing on my heart’s desires.

Lastly, I attach the images and words to my board in a circle. Top of the circle I place what I most desire to experience for the year, I call it my “theme” followed by the year. A few previous years examples are: Marriage 2014, Healthy 2015, Financially Free 2016,  Travel 2017.  I then work in a clockwise direction adding images and words that relate to the following: relationships, health, family, higher knowledge, fun, travel, spiritual, abundance. The middle of the board I put pictures of my actual projects I desire to complete for the year. For 2012, my big goal was to finish my book so I made a mini book out of construction paper and put it right in the middle of my board. My experience has been whatever makes the middle of my board gets accomplished.

The experience of making a vision board is awesome for me as I allow myself the time to connect within and to mark the passing of another year.  It’s a time I look forward to each year and I’ve even created a ritual around making a vision board. I light candles throughout my room, play inspiring music, stretch out on my bed with cobalt blue construction paper, lots of magazines such as Architectural Digest, Men’s fitness, Robb Report, Shambhala Sun, Simple living and other spiritual/metaphysical magazines, I then clip, and place all the images and words on my board in a somewhat orderly fashion. I wait a few days before I attach them to my board though because I want to make certain those are the things I desire to manifest for the year. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, be careful what you ask for. Well, its true, be certain because vision boards work if you work them.

Everyone has their own way of creating their boards and there is no “right” way.

The most frequently asked question I receive regarding vision boards is which magazines to use. My reply is always the same, use the ones you are already reading and that resonate most with you. Those are the magazines that will have the pictures and images that speak to you.

Now, there are some people who won’t feel right about putting up a board full of material things. Often people feel it’s selfish to ask for material things. To those people who feel this way I would like to remind them that it’s okay to desire material things and there’s nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, you can include experiences such as desiring peace, a deeper spiritual practice and a healthy body on your vision board. Your board is yours and you can fill it with whatever you desire there is no “right” or “wrong” way to do this!

Okay, after you have your board together the next step is to manifest your desires. Here are the seven steps to working your vision board:

First, put your vision board in a place where you can lay eyes on it everyday.

Second, spend at least ten minutes a day connecting with the images on your board. Connect with the images by visualizing yourself having already achieved the very thing you desire. If you have a picture of a new car on the board, visualize yourself driving that new car.

Third, give gratitude for having already achieved your desire by allowing for feelings of love and joy to flow through you and out to the universe.

Fourth, wait for a clear sign from the universe regarding which direction to take in order to manifest your hearts desires.

Fifth, take action in the direction you feel guided to.

Sixth, after you take action wait for the next clue or sign from the universe.

Seven, repeat steps 1-6.

Happy vision boarding!

Wellness Tip
Plastic bags
Plastic bags are bad and for the most part unnecessary. Many of us older folks remember a time, only a few decades ago, when we didn’t have them. Sure, they’re convenient, but is that an excuse to damage the environment and the life it supports?

Description: What is a vegan? What is veganism?

Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients.

Vegan refers to either a person who follows this way of eating, or to the diet itself. That is, the word vegan can be an adjective used to describe a food item, as in, "This curry is vegan", or, it can be used as a noun, as in, "Vegans like cookies, too."

What do vegans eat?

This is perhaps the most common question about veganism. A vegan diet includes all grains, beans, legumes, vegetables and fruits and the nearly infinite number of foods made by combining them.

In addition, many vegan versions of familiar foods are available, so you can eat vegan hot dogs, ice cream, cheese and vegan mayonnaise along with the more familiar veggie burgers. Many foods are associated with veganism, such as soy milk and tofu, but many non-vegans also enjoy tofu, and you certainly don't have to like tofu in order to eat vegan.

Vegans also eat many of the same common and familiar every day foods such as a green salad, spaghetti, and chips and salsa which just about everyone eats. For example, foods such as a vegetarian burrito without cheese or sour cream would be vegan, a vegetarian Thai curry made from coconut milk is vegan, pasta with tomato sauce or another non-meat and non-dairy sauce is vegan, and most breads are vegan.
