Visualization is one of the most powerful and profound exercises you can do for your mind.
It’s a process of forming a mental image in your mind of things you want in your life. You visualize it in your mind’s eye over and over again until it becomes evident in your life.
When you engage the Visualization process you emit a powerful frequency out into the Universe. It’s like giving a command. And the Universe moves heaven and earth for you to have it.
What you think and feel most of the time is what creates your reality, it’s what you become. The Law of Attraction is the law which allows us to see the evidence of these thoughts and feelings.
There are many famous celebrities, athletes and high achievers who work with Vision Boards and Visualization.
Thanks to Vision Boards you can deliberately focus your powerful attention (Visualization) in order to create a beautiful life that fills you with amazement. It helps you step into your full potential. It’s basically a representation of what you’ve always wanted to be, do, or have.
It could be images of people you want to meet, an object that you want so dearly, places you want to visit or something that symbolizes an aspirational state of mind or feeling. Whatever it is that inspires you and represents your goals and desires can be put on your Vision Board.
When you start working with Vision Boards on a consistent regular basis you may find yourself amazed by how powerful they really are.
Some say it’s Magic!
Q: How can I create my first Vision Board with anticipation and ease?
A: When I made my first Vision Board, I made it a ritual. I started off by relaxing and letting go of all daily tasks. Next, I asked myself some questions like: When was the last time I felt truly happy? What was the reason for my happiness? What did I think, feel and do at that moment? What do I really enjoy? What makes my heart sing? What is the ideal feeling I want to have throughout the day and life?
When asking these questions, be sure you don’t mistaken happiness with fast lived pleasure. Many people believe that happiness is having fun at a party, the thrill and passion of sex, or the delights of drinking a bottle of excellent wine. These are all wonderful experiences to be cherished but they are more feelings of pleasure. They can go hand in hand and can be interlinked but they are not the same. Perfect happiness is that feeling that comes over you when you know life is great and you can't help but smile. It is a sense of well-being and contentment. Perfect happiness is a perfect state of being, a divine state of being. Life is just as it should be.
I then proceeded by writing down my answers on a piece of paper (which I recommend you to do, as it’s energetically immensely powerful) exactly what thoughts and feelings got me most excited and whatever it was that sparked happiness in me.
Once I did that, I looked for images in magazines and on the internet, Affirmations, postcards or anything I could find which represented those feelings. Keep in mind that the selected materials should trigger positive emotions. You can either glue them on a poster, use a cork board, draw, or work with a Vision Board app.
Q: What is the easiest and most effective way to integrate it in your daily life?
A: Ideally you want to have it somewhere where you keep looking at it throughout the day, which is easy to access. I have one in my living-room and bedroom. Recently, I have started using an app, which now allows me to take it everywhere, even when I’m on the go - it’s super handy!
This brings you back into alignment with your dreams and keeps your focus exactly where you want it. Every time you look at it, you should try to feel the optimistic emotions and excitement of already having achieved all that’s on your Vision Board.
The two vital and most important times of the day to focus on your goals are first thing in the morning (right after waking up) and just before you fall asleep.
Q: How many Vision Boards should I make?
A: There really is no correct or incorrect amount of Vision Boards you can make. This is personal preference. As I mentioned above, I work with a few. Some people choose to focus on one target at a time until the specific goal is achieved, while others mix up their Vision Boards with all kinds of desires. You could also create more than one Vision Board for the same goal. There really are no limitations.
You can even have Vision Boards for family goals, partner goals or even career goals.
Q: How do I make my Vision Board more powerful and impactful?
A: As already mentioned, always focus on the way the material on your Vision Board makes you feel. This is vital to the success of your Visualization and manifesting it.
However, there are some secret and helpful tricks to remember when engaging with this process that can bring you your success faster and with more ease.
When looking at your Vision Board, listen to stimulating music that elevates your emotions. Work with positive Affirmations while Visualizing, such as, I have an abundance of love, wealth, … (When working with Affirmations state them in present tense). And moving images (for Vision Board apps) such as short clips that inspire you. Also, try including photos of yourself in the Vision Board to create a stronger emotional link.
You could achieve a tenfold benefit when using these consistently and regularly. Your focus becomes sharper than just passing by your Vision Board and taking a quick glance. Take some time out of your day to interact with your Vision Board and your goals. After all, it is your future you’re engaged with.
As you can tell there are various amounts of ways you can use and make Vision Boards.
- have fun while creating it
- feel good and excited about your goals
- when watching, feel the emotions of already having accomplished them
- be grateful
- and lastly, know with every fiber of your being that this is the future you are creating, there is absolutely no way around it!
Vision Boards have been around for centuries. But with this day and age the Vision Board game has been stepped up through digital Vision Boards. And we can all use digitization to our benefit. What I find best is that you can take them with you anywhere you go, prevent relapse of negative emotions, they have moving images such as short clips. You have all the material you need at hand and can start going after your dreams straight away. Some digital Vision Boards even stimulate many senses simultaneously with soothing music, spoken Affirmations and moving images. And when you’ve got time at hand you can just grab your phone and watch your future dream life as an exciting movie.
Don’t waste another minute of your precious life and start going after your dream's. All it takes is one act of motivation to get the ball rolling in your favour. Believe in yourself and know that you can be, do, and have anything and everything you want. You can do it! Step into your full potential!
