I’m not a huge believer in the power of vision boards. Rather, I am a huge KNOWER of their power.
How do I know? I’ve watched my coaching clients create their vision boards (sometimes called dream or story boards), take time each day to look at the images, then manifest and live the results of their creations. In other words, I’ve seen the visions on their boards become part of their real life.
It’s been discovered in quantum research, that whatever we focus on is what we will attract and see. Since everything is a thought first, the way we make things (the non-physical) a reality, is first to understand what we want to create. Pictures are a perfect way to do this.
Then, we focus on the outcome.
My friend, Bev Sanders, the founder of Las Olas – Surf Safaris for Women (I love their motto: We make girls out of women) wrote a fabulous blog post about the art of visualization and the power of having vision boards. My favorite line is: “life is meant to be enjoyed and dreams are meant to come true.” I couldn’t agree more!
Her blog post is below. You can check out additional posts from Las Olas at Laplaya.
As a kid, I was expert in the art of visualization. I believed I could manifest anything into reality. Like most kids, I daydreamed about roller skates, a brand new bicycle, or my very own puppy. To manifest my reality, my bedroom wall became my vision board.
Unimpressed, my dad suggested I sell Kool Aid. Looking back, I admit the beverage business helped, but success came by the power of my unwavering focus. That’s what kids do. Then I saw only possibilities, but as a distracted adult it’s harder to make my dreams a reality. That’s why vision boards are making a comeback. The power of visualization is still an effective way to achieve one’s goals.
No matter what you’re daydreaming about, don’t forget what you knew as a young girl–that life is to be enjoyed and that dreams are meant to come true. So if you imagine yourself learning to surf at Las Olas, dream about it every day, make your Kool Aid, but don’t give up your dream.
We promise you that you’ll gain some of your visionary power back, and then some, the same power you knew as a girl.
Rock on Bev!
What do you want to be, do or have? Find words, pictures and symbols and create a vision board to reflect your dreams. Do it now!
(By the way, three years ago I put an image of Las Olas on my vision board which is pictured above. I’ll be learning to surf at Las Olas later this month!)
