Truthfully? I was a bit sceptical about their usefulness but it’s funny how I kept being drawn back to the idea over the years. Also funny that these days I’m encouraging and helping other people to make them because of the amazing experiences I’ve had with mine!
For me, a vision board isn’t just about some fun collaging, “when I’m a millionaire and running my own day spa in Bali” activity. Yes its fun. Yes I do let myself dream big. But two cool things happen when I make a vision board…
Second, once I sort out the things that I DO feel 100% bought into, and I start assembling my vision on the paper, I experience this wonderful focussed state which is a sort of cross between excitement and wonder. And THAT’s where the magic begins, I believe. When I’m in that state I can feel my mind soaking up the idea that THIS is possible! THIS is within REACH! THIS is there for ME! There’s an inner joy and enthusiasm and confidence that just seems to be infused into me. Some people would call that being in a high vibrational state. Some people call it creative visualisation. It feels like both.
Recently I had something happen from my vision before I’d even glued the picture onto the paper! Coincidence or synchronicity? Fantasy or reality? Does it matter? I just love the idea that I can, as my beloved Louise Hay says, use my thoughts to create my reality.
Next time I’m going to write more about how I go about making a vision board.
