Using Vision Boards

 

  What is a Vision Board ? Apple BlossomIn its basic form a Vision Board is a collage of inspirational pictures and affirmations (a declaration that something is true) arranged in a poster format. Pictures can be cut out from magazines, papers, downloaded and printed from the internet etc. then glued to your Vision Board, a simple piece of paper or card, together they create a 'Vision' of an area of your life that you want to change. This may be your Job, a relationship, your health, your home, or anything you want to change. Vision boards are a powerful tool to help you co-create the life you want, focusing the thoughts of your conscious mind and connecting with your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind works in pictures and images creating a direct and strong connection to the images portrayed on your Vision Board – 'Your Vision'.

 

 

Your life is created by your thoughts…

As has been discussed in the many books on the subject, your life is created by your thoughts, you are what you think. If you can change the way you think, you can change your life ! Your Vision Boards can help you change your thoughts and co-create the new life you desire. If you can change the way you think and harness the power of the universe it is possible to create anything you desire. Everything you see and touch and indeed the things you can't, have been manifested (created) by and from the universe, the animals, plants, mountains and rivers, buildings, cars, computers and of coarse YOU !

Creating a Vision Board…

Creating a Vision Board is an inspirational, refreshing and fun task that will leave yoCreativeu feeling positive and full of hope. Decide on your 'Vision' of the future, you can make one Vision Board for your complete 'Vision' or split your 'Vision' into separate areas, for example – health, home, relationships, work, holidays. Cut pictures from magazines, copy and print from the internet, choose some inspirational text and paste everything onto your 'Vision Board' in a way that pleases you. You don't need to use pictures that exactly match your desires, indeed you may not be able to find any, just use what you can find to help you build up your vision of the future you want to create. Your newly created Vision Board should be viewed regularly, when you wake in the morning and just before you go to bed at night are a good place to start. Place your Vision Board in a position where it can be viewed easily and regularly.

Use your computer…

Give it time and believe…

YTimeou need to allow the process of creation time to become a reality, be open and observant, but try not over analyse. Watch out for coincidences, chance meetings in fact anything that may help you or be a guide for your 'Vision'. One of the key factors when using Vision  Boards to create your life, is to live as if your vision is already here, and to believe. If you don't believe, then you will not create your Vision, but rather an absence of your dreams.

Remove negative thoughts…

It is important to remove any negative thoughts from your thinking, negative thoughts will hinder your efforts to co-create the life you want and make it much harder to realise your dreams. You need to just know that your 'Vision' will without question be realised. Do not try work out how it will come to be just know that it will. In everyday life there are many situations and circumstances that may lead you to have negative thoughts and feelings. As an example – being shouted at by a passing motorist when you haven't done anything wrong – although in their perception you most certainly have – can lead to upset and annoyance, both of which are negative and unhelpful to your life. Try to develop a strategy that you can use to remove the unwanted negativity, and replace it with strong positive feelings, this will be highly beneficial to your life and well-being. One strategy I have used with great success is to imagine in your minds eye, putting the situation, negative comments or other unwanted negativity into a bin marked 'unwanted negatives' and closing the lid. This has helped me greatly and quickly results in the negativity being removed from my mind and as such my life.

The future is yours to create…
