Have you ever heard of a vision board vision board?
It’s like a poster with a number of different pictures and words that signify what you would like to have in your life. It can be a goal, it can be a career goal, it can be ideal vacation, can be your ideal relationship, it can be your ideal job.
What you do is go through magazines or materials that you can cut out and you place them on this board . Then you look at it several times a day to imprint the image on subconscious mind.
But does this really work you might ask. Or is this just wishful thinking?
I believe that vision boards do work. But they don’t work by themselves. A vision board can a kind of Motivator, or a Trigger to action.
When you look at your vision board your mind sees images without evaluating whether you can have them or not.
And the repetition of looking at the Board one to three times every day imprints these images your mind, and in your psyche. And you can react favourably the images on a subconscious level, as something desirable and achievable. We can imagine ourselves already having the thing or being in the place that we envision on our boards.
But the most important is to take action, not just look at the boards all the time and expect physical manifestation. We look at our boards frequently, because looking at the Board stimulates our desire to physically have the item or do the thing.
The stimulation moves us to take action, to think what can I do to make this come true on the physical plane. What step can I start at to make this dream real. And as we continue to look at the Board it keeps our desire so to speak, which spurs us on to one action.
Then the next action, in a continuous flow to achieve the dream. Along the way we meet people who can help us, we can find resources, classes etc which can better prepare us to achieve this dream. For instance if it’s a travel vision board we might to be inclined to take a course in the language that is spoken in the place that we want to go. which spurs us on, encourages us to keep moving forward.
Then we might start thinking it takes money for this trip to happen, so then find a way to acquire the funds to save the money. Maybe we get a part-time job, maybe we sell our crafts or some such thing. Our mind then turns action which will support that dream. And while we continue to look at that board 3 times a day week, tweak it, the images if need be.
A vision board or dream or is not static. Sometimes we might want to add fresh images to keep the feeling alive, or we might want to change the board as our options or goals change.
The important thing is to continue look at our boards on a regular basis and to take action as ideas come to us. And they will.
Do vision boards dream boards really work or are they a pretty collection of pictures. I believe they do. They feed our imagination, they encourage us to dream, and they fill us with the fire and momentum to take concrete action to bring those dreams out of theory and become something we can appreciate and enjoy in our real everyday lives.
By the way if you can’t be bothered to cut and paste pieces of paper onto a board, you can get an app for your phone or tablet which works marvelously to create your very own dream board with photos and text. And it’s much easier to look at that three times a day perhaps than a board on a wall. There are quite a few apps to choose from.
So you’ve nothing to lose… give it a go. Try making your own dream board vision board. You can have more than one, you can have one for each area of your life… each dream, each goal that you hold dear. Just remember follow up those visualisations with concrete,continuous,unceasing actions. You can do it!
