With all this talk about vision boards lately, I thought I would put it to the test. I have been doing my research to see what manifesting miracles have been happening and I’m happy to report that there are many. I have tried using vision boards for a few years now and I have to admit at first I was skeptical, however, they have worked for me.
Many gurus in the personal development field have them, including Louise Hay, personal development expert, Oprah and even Einstein had one.
Dreams are important to always have. I have many at 87 and hope you do too. Use a vision Board and affirmations to help your dreams come true in your life.” – Louise Hay.
So how and why do vision boards work?
According to research, the information we feed our unconscious mind relates directly to the happenings and occurrences in our life. By using a vision board we help assist our reticular activating system (RAS) in our minds. By looking at our vision board often we are reinforcing our unconscious desires through our RAS.
Your reticular activating system is a filter between your conscious mind and your unconscious mind. It takes instructions from your conscious mind and passes them on to your unconscious.
As the law of attraction states, you attract what you focus on. Therefore, if you are looking at your images each morning and evening you are directing your focus and activating your RAS on a daily basis then those events and experiences will be brought into your reality.
How do you do it:
Brainstorm: Firstly get all of your ideas out of your head and on to paper. I use a mind map.
I split it into sections Lifestyle, Finance, Health, Relationships, Career.
Visualise: Get really clear about what makes you happy. Can you imagine how you would feel if everything were to happen? A dream job, that perfect partner, the house… Feelings are so important when creating your vision board.
Gather: Gather as much information as possible. Cut images from newspapers and magazines, create a board on Pinterest, have a look online and start creating your dream life. Don’t hold back, really go for it. How will you feel when each of these images come true? What could be your wildest dream?
Look at it: It is important that you hang your vision board somewhere you can see it often. Mine is hanging in my office so I see it every day. Make sure you take 5 minutes each day to really look at each image and feel those feelings.
