How many of you out there have used vision boards as a way to bring specific things into their life? I, for one, am a firm believer in the vision bored. I started using them by accident the first part of 2012. It was a particularly cold day in March, and I was bored. I guess I didn’t know it at the time but it was my intuition that urged me to make my very first vision board.
So I went to the internet and picked out some pictures that I thought called to me. This was the fun part and took quite a lot of time. At the time I really had no rhyme or reason as to the pictures I picked. I had a picture of a new car, a small red house with a for sale sign in front of it and some random pictures of nature, Buddha, and people in meditation. I ordered them through the one hour photo at Wal-Mart, and went to pick them up as well as everything else I would need.
I bought a large framed poster board, and some glue sticks, that was it, that is all I needed to put it all together. After I had carefully glued the pictures in place, I put them in the frame and hung it on my living room wall. I enjoyed the process of making it but to be honest, once I put it on the wall I didn’t give it another thought.
About five months later I was given the opportunity to buy a house almost identical to the one in the picture I had put on my vision board. I was shocked because I really had not thought about buying a house like that. I had already lost a business and a home years earlier, so I knew it would take an act of God to make this one happen.
And that He did. We ended up moving into that house two months later. The car came three months after that. Oh and yes, about the meditation and nature, they are both very important aspects to my health and well-being. Needless to say after that I became a vision board fiend.
I have six of them displayed throughout my house at this time. A lot of them don’t have anything to do with physical things but are more about my spiritual expansion. They work! I cannot say it enough about it, give it a try. It is like putting super grow on your intentions and desires.
The very next board I made was about living and eating healthy. It was about creating healthy boundaries and loving myself enough to follow them. That was in November 2012. In January of the following year, book after book came to me. It was like my teacher guides were standing next to me to help unravel some of what got me to become so overweight. I remembered hearing “you have to fix the inside first before you can fix the outside.” Being that, for most of my life, I had no idea what that meant I skipped over that part until now.
Over the course of the next ten months, I began a journey of deep exploration into the inner workings of Michele. Through the unraveling process I lost a hundred pounds. I lost that weight with the greatest of ease. It simply fell off. I was so happy I felt as though I were flying most of the time. I seriously could go on forever on this subject but for the sake of cutting it short I say that this weekend we all make a vision board and post them here or on my Facebook page Waking Up in Northern NY.
Oh and by the way I have actually advanced my vision board making to the computer. I use the paint program and have it printed and then I frame and hang it. I love them all. I am excited to make another. If anyone has any questions about how to make them, please feel free to contact me through my Facebook page.
Well my loves, I am off to face the day. I hope you all have the most fantastic day ever!
